Does a good job and does it quietly.

byookiewookie Jul 2, 2009
1 Helpfuls 2 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Cleans well, spins well, and does all of this quietly.
Cons Storing the hoses and cords after use takes a little imagination. 
Recommended it? Yes

The directions for setting the machine up were easy to follow.  It ran quietly through all cycles.  The spin cycle removes as much water as any larger machine that I have owned.  I'm pleased at how well it cleaned the clothes.  On top of all of this I can say that the machine is as cute as it can...

Pros quiet, can control cycles, easy to attach, no pipe modifications needed.
Cons Need better attachment of the pipe to the sink.
Recommended it? Yes

Engineers did a very good job. I cannot think of a better design. It is simple and works great. Quiet operation, clean result, gentle on clothes. Users have great control on cycles, may add washing time or additional rinse cycles. It is portable for me, I can easily move it. I would like to thank... Read full review »

Cons Leaks underneathe, leaks around cord.  Knob fell off, agitation does not work.

I don't know what machine everyone else here has that gave this piece of junk good reviews, but I sure wish I had that one!  I bought this thing because of the reviews here on this site.  BIG mistake.  Where doesn't it leak?  It leaks from around the bottom of the machine every single time, leaks...

Pros Washes very well! And quickly!
Cons The caster wheels will not roll on anything except hard flooring.
Recommended it? Yes

I live in an apartment building, and hated using the building's laundromat, even when the machines were actually working. Did some research and fell upon this one. It's great! Cleans really well! Smaller drum than permanent washers, but I can still fit a few pairs of jeans in with a bunch of other... Read full review »

Pros Dependable and works great
Cons none
Recommended it? Yes

I have had this machine for 2 years now. I do over 10 loads a week, and the only problem I had, was to replace the drain hose. (I do a lot of loads with bleach which is why the hose started to leak.) Repairing it took a simple trip to the hardware store, and about 15 minutes. Even with the abuse my... Read full review »

Pros quiet, simple and does a good job cleaning.
Cons capacity is small, but perfect for one person. with limited space

This is the only machine that would fit through the doors on my boat so for the price I had to try it. I am very pleased with the performance of this machine, it has been on a covered area on the back deck of my houseboat, I keep it covered when not in use but it's still exposed to the elements for...

Recommended it? No

I have owned my DWM99W washer for 8 months. First the water level never fills to a proper level. It is always too low and you have to manually add water. Secondly the first rinse cycle is not long enough. It does not remove enough soap. Thirdly the spin cycle is not very strong. The result is that... Read full review »

Pros uncomplicated, does the job really well, small and not over designed
Cons once it breaks you need to get a new unit
Recommended it? Yes

it does the job, it's quiet and rugged, it worked for us (3-4 loads a week) for over 2 years, we loved it, now it has broken. I called the repairman and as I expected the replacement part is $120 and the labour is $180.
So the conclusion is: this an excellent disposable washing machine but... Read full review »

Pros Cost, performance, space saver, very quiet and easy to use
Cons Can't think of any.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this machine from the BeverageFactory.com and I am pleased with it.

When it arrived (had it shipped via ground), I opened up both the outer box and inner box and noticed that the washer was damaged as if someone/something had dropped it too hard. Since neither box had any damage... Read full review »

Pros Easy to use, effective, powerful, quiet, fun.
Cons Had some problems with aerator, but these were solved.
Recommended it? Yes

I'm a very cautious consumer, so I spent almost a year researching various portable washers before deciding on the Danby DWM99W.

I knew I wanted a washer with about 10lb capacity, and that I wanted an agitator rather than a pulsator (The pulsator pushes water back and forth through the... Read full review »

i would do just about anything to get out of doing my laundry at the laudromat. it was inconvient, i had to work my time around their hours, and basically it would ruin my day. i considered just moving to a place with a washer and a dryer or with the hookups, but none of which really suited my...

Yes, the same old story - my fiance and I were sick of dragging giant bags/baskets of dirty clothes to the coin laundry. We live in an old (c. 1920s) building with no hookups, so we decided to investigate. I like to think I'm a "wise buyer", so I spent 3 months or so researching. Every epinions... Read full review »

Cons Haven't found any yet...
Recommended it? Yes

I researched portable washers extensively via the net and found this one to have the best ratings from other users. And people's reviews have been right on! This washer holds quite a bit (but not as much as a full size of course!) and it was a breeze to hook up and get washing! It is super quiet... Read full review »

Recommended it? Yes

We sold our home last year and moved into an apartment for the time being. We hated using the apartment building's machine so we looked around for a portable. We could not find one till this summer. It was the Danby.

We did not buy the Danby because it was the cheapest, best, warranty,... Read full review »

I was looking for a portable machine to wash not only our family laundry but cloth diapers as well. I was nervous because I really wanted a powerful machine that got the diapers CLEAN!

Pros Quiet, functional, Easy hook-up, different wash settings.
Cons My first hose leaked, but I replaced it with the other hose it comes with.
Recommended it? Yes

I love this machine for washing everything---it is like a regular size washing machine, but you don't fill it as full! It is fully portable, easy to hook and unhook, quiet, and doesn't move while washing.

It has different options as to how long you want to wash and how many rinse and spin... Read full review »
