This tiny machine does a good job.
12 October 2018
I bought this for a young family member who just joined college in a new city and needed a washing machine that didn't occupy much space and is in budget.
Now this has been in use for the past 15 days.
Let's get on to the review.
The machine is only a bit bigger than the average bathroom bucket and indeed occupies less space. It is made of plastic body and is light weight and fairly tough. The quality of the material is decent and for this price point it is good. It looks cute and it is difficult to believe it can be a washing machine at first glance. There have been many curious visitors who had to see it to believe it.
It is very easy to use with just two turn knobs. A washing knob which can be adjusted to get a wash cycle of up to 15 minutes and the spin knob to have a spin cycle of up to 5 minutes.
A detachable Waterhose is provided to put water inside. There are issues with it ( see cons). Instead of connecting it to the inlet it is better to just put it inside the tub. If the machine is away from the tap then a regular hose pipe can be used instead.
The machine can be filled up to 3/4 level. There is a drainpipe which overflows if you fill it more than a particular level and ensures you don't overshoot the level.
The machine can take in good number of clothes. The first time it could wash 3 tshirts, 3 shorts/ bermudas, 3 pair of socks, 3 UGs and a kurta. And it can wash your double bedsheet or two pair of jeans easily. It is very useful for a single person or a family of two if laundry is done daily.
When washing is over, the drain pipe is supposed to be lowered on to the floor to allow the dirty water to drain out. If you wish to spin it then it is a tedious job. You will have to remove all the clothes and then adjust the tiny spin basket and it has much smaller capacity and ( see cons). So what is better is to simply squeeze the water out by hands and then refill for rinsing. So filling and draining is done manually only.
The machine does take some load off. It spins in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions and washes the clothes well. So one doesn't have to do any rubbing of clothes and lifting of buckets with this.
It consumes very little electricity and can be run on inverter ..according to the seler ... which we haven't tried yet.
The hose provided for putting the water in doesn't fit well into the slot. But can be just hung inside the tub.
The spinner is not good enough and even after the spin you can squeeze out water from the clothes. So it is almost a useless attachment.
Having said that this is still a good option for college students, single adults and a family of two. It saves you the trouble of putting hands in detergent, rubbing the clothes and lifting of buckets and draining water from the buckets .
It is regularly available in lightning deals and you can go for it then
I find this machine to be amazingly simple in operation and design and a good bargain in budget.
Hope my review is helpful to you
