Worth it just for the SPIN! Great washer.

bypermacrisis Nov 14, 2010

Pros Extracts TONS of water in spin, fits in car backseat, water and electricity miser.
Cons Manual load transfer, washtub agitator unlike Sanyo's superior impeller.
Recommended it? Yes

I used this machine in an apartment which did not allow regular laundry to be installed. It runs near silent and cannot be heard next door or downstairs. This also allowed us to get away with doing laundry at 2 in the morning, and not getting busted or
written up.

It uses little water... Read full review »

Pros Energy efficient, Adjustable settings
Cons Small capacity
Recommended it? Yes

I've had this Hanby DTT420 unit for a couple of years now and it's excellent. Does a great job, is quiet, has never had a repair issue, and probably the most energy-efficient washer avaialble today. If you're on off-grid power, there is nothing better.  This little gem will get your clothes as... Read full review »

Pros Good water extraction, water and electricity savings.
Cons Faucet adapter, hose inlet deteriorate. Cord too short. Drain hook on small side.
Recommended it? Yes

I have had my Danby Twin Tub washer for nearly two years. I like it much better than my big automatic washers, with their pump problems and lame spin cycles. My Danby uses much less water and the extractor does a much better job than the spin cycle of the bigger models I replaced with my Danby... Read full review »


Too Loud

Pros Easy to use. Cleans clothes very efficiently.
Cons Hoses are too short. Too loud.
Recommended it? No

I recently purchased this washer after reading the reviews and moving into an apartment with no washing facilities in the building. The operation of the machine is very simple, I've done a few loads with varying levels of water, and detergent, and the washer definitely gets all of the clothes very... Read full review »

Cons not automatic, a bit noisy, doesn't roll over carpet
Recommended it? Yes

I was so annoyed by dragging my laundry down three flights of stairs then two blocks away to a laundry mat...where the washers often didn't work...that I invested in the Danby DTT420 twin tub portable washer. It arrived quickly, with some issues with the two delivery companies involved but the... Read full review »

Pros I don't have to drive my laundry around town!
Cons It IS very manual compared to regular machines, but the slight inconvenience is worth it.
Recommended it? Yes

I went to the laundramat for 12 years and wish I found this sooner. Its light and was carried upstairs easily by 2 women. Hooked right up to the sink, washes well and the spinner gets clothes really dry. I use a rack and air dry. Read full review »


Great Washer for a Certain Type of Person

byjojojennie Nov 28, 2005
7 Helpfuls 8 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Compact, easy and fun to use. This machine really has cleaned my clothes!
Cons Honestly, the only con would be if you want a more fully automatic washer.
Recommended it? Yes

I held off buying a portable washer for years and lugged everything to the laundromat. Then I bumped into these reviews on the Danby Twin Tub, and my curiosity got the best of me. I ordered one and received it within a few days--and was doing laundry that night!

I've had my Danby twin tub... Read full review »

Cons None that I can think of
Recommended it? Yes

I used one all thru college and it was a lifesaver. This and a sweater rack to dry and you don't have to use the ghetto public laundry mats. There was some sort of a crazy guy lurking around my towns, so I bought this and totally bypassed the problem. Read full review »

Cons Manual involvement with the wash cycle, however this is a minor issue.
Recommended it? Yes

I've been using the Danby DTT-420 for over a month now, and I'm delighted. Unlike the previous reviewer, I think this is an excellent machine, as long as you're willing to learn how to make the best use of its design.

It does require some manual intervention: you transfer the clothes... Read full review »


The washer that needs a babysitter

13 Helpfuls 14 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Compact, no hookups required, low energy use
Cons Requires manual filling for wash AND rinse, requires moving clothes to spin
Recommended it? No

Got this yesterday, and somewhat disappointed. I assumed it would act like every other washer I have seen, i.e. more or less fully automatic. I was wrong. Here is the process:

1. Hook up hose to sink
2. Put in clothes, detergent.
3. Turn on sink to fill up washer. Wait until it... Read full review »
