What you will need:
Hose connecting Adapter
Working with what you have:
The hose is 2 small and you need an adapter. I found a simple solution by going to home depot and getting a clear hose to attach to the hose. Before inserting the hose I inserted a plastic connector into the open end of the washing machine hose.
This allowed the hose to remain in place in the clear hose.
I then used clamp rings to make sure it would not come out and hold it together.
I have made this portable mini washing machine into a non-movable one by putting the hose to drain in the sink.
I attached eye hooks to the wall and used craft wire to wrap around the hose and threaded it through the hooks.
The hose for intake is also too small.
Easy fix for that situation as well.
I took a garden hose found an adapter for my kitchen sink ( don't drink tap water anyway so removed tap filter to place adapter)
Now when I want to use the machine I only have to connect the hose and fill the tub with hot or cold water depending on what I'm washing.
I gave this machine 4 stars because of the work I had to put into it to work. But also when I received it in the box, it looked brand new, it did not work. The machine would not agitate. I refused to have to return it so I decided to open up the back panel. it seemed that a connector had come undone or just not placed in snuggly. I reconnected it and the machine started working.
I bought this machine for 100.00 and it was every bit worth it. I invested another 15 dollars tops for the hoses, adapter, and eye hooks.
I have saved over 200.00 in the last 5 months. The machine works very well. I got the largest capacity
I don't normally write long reviews or steps I take when buying stuff online. I'm a single mom but DIYer (do it yourself-er). However, I figured other moms may be looking into a washing machine that is affordable and this by far takes the cake for me. The machine has the tub area and the spin section as you may have seen in the videos. If you overload the machine it won't agitate very well. Just remove a couple of items and you will see the machine agitate and swirl. The spinner really does remove all the excess water and practically dries the clothes. I have hung up my clothing in the bathroom for a period of 1-3 hours and the clothing has been completely dry. (side note jeans take a little longer). Another side note. I like to keep my apartment cold because I'm always so hot and the clothes still dried in that amount of time.
Another thing and caution. I didn't realize the lid was fragile or I didn't judge my own strength. I put some weight on the lid and it cracked. Not chipped or broken just a line so don't put anything heavy on the lid or you may crack it as well.
Hope this review helped. I would definitely buy this product again.
Great washing action. Uses very little laundry detergent like a super high efficiency machine. The biggest issue is the water inlets being on the back of the machine whereas others have them on top. Having them on top is a better design. When they are in the back, water tends to leak due to gravity and the flimsy hose which is far from water tight. Nothing major but expect a few drops on the floor. Considering this Della is almost $100 less than the 19lb Panda, it's a small hassle.
Filling the wash tub takes forever. If you have a 5 gallon bucket, filling it in the shower and then dumping it into the washer would be much faster. I just do it the intended way and multitask while it's filling.
• PRO TIP: Because it takes so long to fill, I generally wash my whites first since they won't bleed and reuse the water for subsequent loads.
• PRO TIP: Rinsing is done in the spinner. The manual doesn't cover this but all you do is connect the water hose to the spinner side and let the faucet run for a minute or two while it's spinning. Turn off the water and let it spin another 2-3 minutes to dry. Easy peezy.
• PRO TIP: Don't overload! The clothes should be able agitate freely in the wash tub. If it has any trouble moving around, you either got too much clothes or too little water. In general, I don't fill past halfway and the water level should be above the clothes.
• PRO TIP: The drain hose is meant to hook over the ledge of a sink but the pump is a bit weak and definitely benefits from having the hose low, especially when it comes to draining out that last bit of water. If you have the ability to drain into a bathtub, that's your best bet.
I find it a bit loud. Having the lids closed cuts the noise some but it's not quiet. I live in an older building with thin walls and floors so maybe the vibrations are amplified. Having some sort of rubber mat underneath would help.
The plastic lint filter is worthless. My advice is to visit your local dollar store, or Daiso if you have one nearby, and pickup the floating lint filters that you just drop in with your load. Something like this: Flower-type Washing Machine Floating Lint Mesh Bag Hair Filter Net Pouch,Blue
Other than that, it works well and is heaven sent if you live in a small space or don't have washer/dryer hookups. Don't expect the spinner to get your clothes completely dry. It's more like 70% dry and you hang dry the rest. Blowing a fan or space heater towards them helps if drying indoors. Running a dehumidifier at the same time, even more so. If drying outside, nothing to do other than let Mother Nature run its course.
UPDATE - 12/2017:
I've had it a year now and use it at least once a week and it still works like a champ. The one thing is sometimes the water doesn't drain from the spinner and it causes the spin to come to a complete stop. To fix it, I turn off the timer, turn on the drain on the wash side until it starts to drain, then switch back and that always fixes the issue. I've read about "priming the pump" and I believe that's what this is referred as.
