COMPACT and QUIET

COMPACT and Quiet..Purchased this machine to replace my old Simpson kg and was impressed by its ease of use and how quiet it is. No central agitator so i dont know how effective it is moving water around as you cant open lid without pressing the pause button. Time will tell how long it lasts but so far so good. Show details

Very disappointed and would not recommend to anyone

Don't like this machine, it tangles all the clothes. If I use full load, cold wash, eco cycle the machine sets to 3H. I think that 3 hour delay. Delicate cycle the washing comes out dripping wet. I have only had it 4 weeks and I am ready to sell it. I have previously used a F&p smart wash machine and I love it. But not the haier. Show details

DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!!!!!!!!

When you wash dark coloured clothes there is always a white scum left on them and they have to be washed a second or third time. The automatic balance doesn’t work. It can take more than 3 hours to wash a load of clothes because it keeps going through the rinse cycle over and over again. Show details

Absolutely shocking!

I am in a hotel in Brisbane and, unfortunately, this is the washer I have to use.
I have never liked top loaders, in my opinion the wash quality in them is much poorer that a front loader and they really don't spin as well. In addition, it seems that they may use far more water.
BUT, the absolutely WORST feature of this machine is that there is NO DETERGENT DRAWER!
So, do I really have to pour detergent directly onto my clothes?
Do I really have to wait around for a ping so that I know when fabric softener must be added?
Wasn't the whole point of 'automatic' washers that you could go away and leave them?
So much technology in the world! Why are this company going backwards? Show details

Cheap and capable washer

I am very satisfied with the product so far. There is no fancy features or settings but that is all I need. Also comes with 2 year warranty. I don't think there is a better washer at this price point. Show details

Okay small washer

Works okay. Had to replace both hot and cold hoses because they were leaking, bad seals. Show details

Flimsy power button

After picking up one of these, the 7kg model up from a free to good home ad, it had the same power on issue, as mentioned by a few here. It must be a common issue with the powering up. The cause is a flimsy power button. The plastic swirl under the power button that pushes it back up, breaks off after a while, as that was the case on inpection, and when you press it, the plastic piece under the button misses the power button on the circuit board, thus not powering on. It can be easily fixed with hot glue but who knows how long it'll last. It now works. Show details

129 volts, washer lid is live. Have to discard machine. Otherwise, we loved it

3yrs and five months old. Sterling performance. But got a tingle from lid so ran multimeter over it. 20 to 30 volts ac. But when closing lid it suddenly jumped to 129 volts. Checked my neutral to earth household circuit in case that was the problem but it was fine, under one volt. By the way all the reviews about this little machine underperforming were wrong. But cannot overlook this dangerous fault. Show details

Completely dead

Doesn't turn on. Stopped working and the screen doesn't light up when plugged in. Completely unreliable. Washed ok when it was working but somehow melted the detergent dispenser so it was really difficult to remove and refill. Show details

The worst washing machine you can buy

If you want a washing machine that washes terribly then this is the one for you! It also lies to you too, you select a 45 minute wash and you can guarantee that 1.5 hours later it’s still cleaning away! That along with the water in the bottom that can never be removed that turns to a stale gross smell then you’ve got yourself one of the worst washing machines going! You’ll have to wash heavily soiled clothes twice and they’ll always come out smelling the same since you can’t actually add fabric softener as the rinse cycle has about 10 water changes so nothing ever smells nice Show details
