Anybody collects Japanese washers or if they're ever available in the US, I wonder?

I've always been intrigued by them

I used a Haier top loader when I was in Beijing last year. It did a fairly good job, the rinse was amazing, it left everything very soft and had good extraction. I though it would be rough on the clothes with the impeller but it didn't seem to be really. My only issue with them is that they're cold fill only and have no heater. I simply could not be dealing with that!

I'd like to use an Aussie version cos they have a hot fill too

The Lowes

in Milledgeville carries the Haiers washers. They are really odd looking next to the LG units in the display.

How the devil do the Haier machines sanitise a load of laundry?

I couldn't be doing with that cold water washing either.

Who was saying the Japanese mantality is:

When washing was done in rivers and streams it was all done in cold water.

I wonder if this is the typical size. Don't seem to hold much clothes.

How many tatami?

Japanese residences are typically and usually TINY!

"In Japan, the size of a room is typically measured by the number of tatami mats (-畳 -jō). The traditional dimensions of the mats were fixed at 90 cm by 180 cm (1.62 square meters) by 5 cm (35.5 in by 71 in by 2 in). Half mats, 90 cm by 90 cm (35.5 in by 35.5 in) are also made. Shops were traditionally designed to be 5 mats (8.91m), and tea rooms and tea houses are frequently 4 mats (7.29m). Because the size is fixed, rooms in traditional Japanese construction measure in multiples of 90 cm. Mats from Kyoto (Kyōma tatami) and other parts of western Japan are slightly larger than those from Tokyo and eastern Japan at 95.5 cm by 191 cm (1.82m; 37.6 in by 75.2 in)."
