This Machine Has Made Life Easier For My Family
on July 17, 2012
We live in an apartment where the washing machines usually do not operate at all, and if they do clothes are not cleaned or rinsed properly. We also have a 3 month old baby girl and a dog so there is a lot of laundry to be done.
We tried to do laundry by hand but that system did not work. Clothes were clean but it took too much time and work. After much thought and budgeting we found out about this washing machine. We read lots and lots and LOTS of reviews.
If you want more reviews to read the amazon.com site sells the same product and has much more feedback than on amazon.ca.
So to cut to the chase - here's the info you really want.
-- It arrived quickly and in perfect condition.
-- It was put together with no problems and was spinning our first load within 30 mins of arriving at our door.
-- We have used all the settings - all functioning normally.
-- Examples of loads -- 15 adult T shirts -- 4 queen sized bedsheets -- 2 big house coats/dressing gowns -- 2 big towels+a bunch of little towels/dish cloths. I am working my way to doing big blankets - which I will do one at a time.
-- As others have commented there is a bit of lint sometimes but I just have to shake the clothes to get it off - not a problem.
Here's some advice about doing the laundry in this machine and drying:
-- Start with really small loads and then work your way up.
-- Don't run the machine and then go out - in the unlikely event something bad happens you don't wanna be out when it does
-- Buy a drying rack!
-- Put everything on a hanger to dry that you can, it makes putting away the dry laundry SO easy! Especially great for shirts. My husband works out a lot so there are many shirts and shorts to wash.
-- Don't save up all your laundry to do in one big lump, do it every day or two to keep a mountain from forming.
-- You can dry big bed sheets in the bathroom easily using coat hangers than have clips on them (like the ones that come with pants in the store) I use 2-4 of the clippy coat hangers per big sheet and then hang them off the shower curtain rail.
One final note: We have only had the washing machine for a couple of weeks. If any problems develop I will come back and update this review. I was grateful for the detailed comments and reviews that I read before purchasing so will try to do the same.
Thanks for reading and Happy Laundry Day!!
