I bought a new one a few months ago and shortly it went to a new owner. I just ordered another new one - same machine. I was impressed with the first one and now am moving to an old folks apartment house with limited laundry facilities. So to put some real fun in washing clothing - the tiny Haier washer will fill that bill. Most owners over load them and meet a failure within 12 to 18 months. With care one should last twice that long or more doing laundry for one old person. The second one is coming from Walmart with a Walmart 36 month service plan which is only $28 and better than most other extended service plans in many ways and half or more the cost.

My experience with the first tiny Haier automatic washer was very positive. I bought it basically to see what it would do and how good it was and was very impressed. Great wash ation for a non agitator machine and even the spin speed was quite adequate. The clear plastic lid is a kick as one can watch what goes on as it operates. A 6.6 pound maximum load is not much and to make the machine last a long time it is probably nearer to 4 pounds. But compared to a low cost twin tub machine, the fully automatic Haier is a little marvel.

Video of one operating

That is the link to a youtube video showing one operating. The water level on the machine is low in the video and the bottom plate is removed to show a view of the underside as it runs.

thanks for that youtube link:)
looks like a really neat little washer-maybe even a little bit"hello kitty"LOL
Besides it's real usefullnes,this thing looks like it would be just about the
ultimate gift for any say,10-15 year old"washer obsessed"child-would likely bug
the hell out of the parents if the child became"too obsessed"*with running the mini
washer LOL.
I'll have to see who around me carries these washers or can get one.
*no such thing as "too obsessed"with washers on this site,but i've heard parents
talk of children being"too obsessed"with washers,vacumes,fans etc.on several
ocaissions-they tried to cut back on the child's exposure to these devices...

I am slightly obsessed... (:

I have been fascinated by washers & dryers since I was 2 years of age. Plus, fortunately, I had the BEST wonderful parents who never said "boo" to any of our "fetishes"! As a matter of fact, my beloved dad used to buy me "almost every" toy washer there was, surprising me many times with delight.

I suspect that had I been as fascinated with washers when I was a child as I am now, I probably would have had a spare set of 1995-vintage GE Filter-Flo's in my fathers garage waiting for service. I'd also probably have a portable Twin-Tub as well.

Back in the late 1990's when I was living in a Condo, I hated using the on-suite laundry. The washer worked OK but was $3.25 a load and didn't have a lot of capacity. The dryer was almost next to worthless and needed around $10 worth of quarters to get my clothing dry.

I was looking at buying a Condensing-Style Euro-Style washer/dryer combo to fit into my kitchen, but I recall it was very expensive and would take 3 hrs to do a load.

I think if anything, If I wanted to wash a few small items, I would be tempted to buy a wonderwash and hook it up to a small motor or something.

Does anyone make a portable front loading machine which is approx 1 cu.ft?

It does look like a nifty and even perhaps a well made machine. I notice that Walmart sells a slightly larger version, same Haier brand, at 1.5 cu ft. However the larger one has a solid lid and a plastic drum, so it might not be as nifty and well made as the smaller one. There's also a 2.6 cu ft 110 v. dryer.

Too bad they don't make them in 230 V versions.
I'd get one right away.
Or do they?

Using the tiny Haier automatic washer saves me from going down one, two or three floors to little laundry rooms. It seems to be doing an excellent job of cleaning. I washed queen size sheets but did them one at a time as I wanted to makle sure they got clean. I do experience out of balance spins when washing T shirts but usually not on others items. The clothing makes two complete turns each direction for the pulsator wash movement which flows lot's of water for wash action. I hang the clothing on a rack and it dries overnight if heavy cloth or in several hours if thinner fabric. I use a little plastic electric fan for air circulation to aid drying. In my old apartment it took several days to rack dry because the place was so cold and damp.
