Vastly improved model & size from proceeding 2.5kg machine
Purchased June 2023 after original 2.5kg Sphere washing machine stopped working after 5 years in our Kokoda caravan.
The new model is 3.3kg so aprox 100mm taller but same depth & width as old model, the new model has been working great, for 5months now, holds much more than before & it is not jammed in tight.
Machine is used aprox 4times every week sometime more.
Now has 3 different water levels & 4 different wash modes.
Washes queen sheet & pillow case with ease in 1 load, 2 bath towels in 1 load.
It is a quieter machine than previous model & fits under standard height bench perfectly.

Sphere e2 code issue on spin cycle
My sphere was going to e2 fault once it started spin cycle saying that the lid was open. On further investigation I found that the same switch for lid open is also the sensor for uneven load. I removed top of washing machine and bent the rod on the switch away from the tub about 15mm and problem fixed hope this helps .
Sphere 3.3 pumping water out the top and flooding the caravan floor
Brought our Sphere 3.3 22 months ago so out of warranty. Flooded caravan floor after failing to stop pumping water. A call to Sydney told me I needed a new sensor ( $12 ) plus a qualified 240 volt tradie. Removed the machine and out of curiosity, removed the small panel on the back of the machine. Found a clear plastic hose, complete with clip, hanging in fresh air. Re-fitted the hose and the first load is currently washing - fingers crossed !

Drain Pump Failed...now not spinning
Great machine for first few months...now living in van full time, it stopped draining...had to replace the drain pump ($31) and about 6 hours of labour to remove from van ( whole other story of disappointment) and pull apart machine...found it very lightly constructed ( Basically just plastic outer shell is all that holds it together). fixed the drain problem...then started shaking violently during spin cycle...we thought the problem went away...wrong!!! it has just stopped spinning through spin cycle, so clothes come out soaked. Will not even spin when on a spin cycle only. Came with van, but looking into other brands for replacement at this stage. Very disappointed.

Cable shorted against hose clamp.
I have this model washing machine in my Jayco caravan. The machine is only 30 months old and has had minimal use. Unfortunately the manufacturing is of poor quality and the main cable to the pump not secured adequately. As you can see in the photo, the cable was resting on a hose clamp which moves with the bowl. This friction rubbed through the cable completely with the resultant loss of power to the pump. Note all the insulation debris below pump. It was a nightmare to remove from the Jayco cabinet but that’s another review.

This machine is used ion our caravan and used daily whenever we use the caravan. When it is used it is used for all our washing - clothing, bedsheets, beach towels etc. We have not had an issue with the machine despite often loading it to the max. It was simple to install and works well. No issues with delicates - seems to get through each load pretty quickly with good results.
Had major problems found out there was a recall. Missed or never received recall notice. Company offer no substantial settlement, something in the range of hundred dollars for a one year old six hundred dollar machine.

Spin cycle worse than a boulder rolling down a hill
As soon as starts to spin the whole machine shakes violently and shakes the rear of the caravan. I'll have to go back to a 2.5 kg machine, very disappointed
Purchased in for $399.
Never have issues. So easy to use. Went from top loader, to front and hated it. So glad I switched back.
Features and settings so easy to use. I use all cycles and have no problems. My front loader was so noisy as it had issues straight away. This one is so quiet it's disconcerting.

Bought a 3.3kg a week or so ago, best thing we did. Using it at caravan parks. Using it for all clothes. Controls are easy to use. no damage to clothes. Cycle times are sufficient. Only issue is the balancing. Sometime you have to stop and rearrange the , apart from that a great buy.

Perfect for me
This size is perfect for me as my children have all flown the coop. Being smaller than other machines results in significant water savings. The delicate cycle works is brilliant.

Good for use and very handy
I brought one of these earlier on in the year and they are great for washing it's really handy and they fit lots in one load I love how my washing looks and feels after coming out of this machine

Extremely troublesome and time consuming
I would not under any circumstances recommend this machine. It was constantly going out of balance when our caravan was new and this was reported to Jayco when the van was under warrantly. Jayco advised that it was ok but we feel that it probably tested without any clothing. The washing machine has never worked properly - constantly going out of balance and refilling. We have to manually guide it through it's cycle. Warranty people advise they will not repair it without cost to us even though there is mention on the Caravanners Forum that these machines have had problems.

Need help. The push down start/pause button does not work. It appears as if there is nothing under the top covering. All other buttons work. Machine works well when I can get the button to connect. It appears to be a stuck down panel.
