Comments about Avanti 3.0 Cu. Ft. Portable Washer - White:
My Whirlpool PORTABLE just broke down after over 10 yrs of service. I had to get a machine quick. I debated about this name brand because I had never heard of it. After 2 months I finally decided to buy it. I've only had it 4 days and I'm having major disappointments. FIRST of all it is NOT PORTABLE, only 2 mini wheels in the back, have to tilt this heavy machine back to roll it, handles on the sides are not even (1 front, 1 bac). How are you supposed to pull it. RIDICULOUS! THEN THE WATER HOSE IS CHEAP. The screw on cap to the water faucet is a plastic piece of junk. I called the store an a salesman gave me a lot of excuses as to why it only comes with 2 wheels (RPMS cap that has to do with the rinse/spin cycle) and that I have to buy an Aerator adaptor for the faucet. Now the whole water hose pops right off the faucet in the middle off my wash and now it won't stay on when I turn on the water. It keeps popping off. MY LOAD IS NOT FINISHED. This is a hot mess. I was thinking of buying a flat dolly because I have to transport the machine from the closet down the hall to my kitchen sink. I've never heard of a portable machine that you have to tilt, spin, flip, shimmy or shake to move it. It is a job and a hassle just to move it. No beach or fabric softer dispenser, crazy. I'm going to contact the Avanti company again (only open Monday to Friday till 5:30 EST). I want results, resolution ASAP and if I don't get it, I want my money back ASAP.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery prompt. Removed old machine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I would NOT buy this again unless it has 4 wheels!
Nice machine but AJ my salesman said yes it's portable; it has wheels in the back. I am very disappointed because I CANNOT move this machine to the sink! I TOLD him that I need to move it to the sink. I feel like he lied to me.I had other portable washers and they had wheels and were no problem to move. Otherwise, the machine works great, but it is NOT PORTABLE!!!!!!

I love Avanti Portable Washing Machines
This is my second Avanti Portable washing Machine that i purchased, The first one just broke down after 8 years of use. The only con i have is that this unit does not have any wheels so that its easy to move around.I work in a home improvement store and i watch enough DIY to take care of that :0) It cleans the cloths great and you are able to add the fabric sofener during the rinse cycle by pressing pause and when it's restarted it will continue where it left off..I love this unit
My sales rep John was great he was very patient with me because i was trying to decide between two different units and just told me take my time, When my product arrived my delivery went so smooth and fast and the delivery personnal carried away my old unit without me even asking them too. They were very plesant to work with
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Not as described
By Worker Bee
THIS IS NOT PORTABLE, as described. Per Avanti, the 2 wheels in the back are just to move it into place without scratching the floors, then install it in place, it DOESN'T come with caster wheels so if you plan on storing in a closet & rolling to a sink not for you. (Don't understand why they call it "portable", bit misleading). Also, NO fabric softener dispenser(description on this website is incorrect) - Per Avanti, can add it in the soap dispenser or during rinse cycle. Problem with that is (page 17 of manual)this has auto lock lid, have to hit "pause" to open, when hit "start" to restart machine will start it up at the beginning of the wash cycle, which means the fabric softener will be incorporated in the wash cycle, which defeats the purpose.
