Anyway, we got it home and set it up. As others have said, the instruction manual is not great and we found the set-up advice in other buyers' reviews helpful. The bottom, screw-on, plastic noise reduction panel was probably the most complicated part of setup--it is REALLY HARD To get it to line up with the holes for screws. We did eventually get it on.Read more ›
The dealer delivered it to me, set it up and away we went. I have had this unit for about a month and here are my comments:
1) The unit is quieter than a traditional laundry machine.
2) I have had no problems with balancing the machine or with water intake. It fills quickly so long as there is high water pressure. The machine balances itself by stopping and starting until the clothes are balanced.
3) The high water level can accommodate a lot of clothes. I do about 3 loads a week: shirts/undies, pants, and towels.
4)It uses a lot less soap than traditional washers (about half I would say)
5)The regular wash runs for about 45 mins which I found excessive. The quickwash runs for about 22 minutes and I find that my clothes are perfectly clean. I only use the regular wash for very soiled items.
6) My unit came with casters so I had no problem. You may also buy casters at the hardware store... the casters are fairly standard.
7) Hooking it up to the sink did require a trip to the hardware store but it was easy to find the adapter as I brought the intake hose with me.
It is one of the larger compact washers out there - 20 inches wide. That way, it is large enough to fit a decent sized load, yet small enough to fit most closets and other tight spaces.
I can usually wash either 10 XL t-shirts, 3 jeans, or one queen sized sheet set at once. Just make sure to load things loosely until the washer is full and select the high water level, which the washer does NOT do by default. Clothes come out perfectly clean. This washer works much better with liquid detergent than powder detergent, which tends to accumulate in the lint filter. Although it does have a powder detergent dispenser, I would advise against using powder detergent.
The only two wash cycles I use are normal for almost everything and heavy for whites. The normal cycle takes 45 minutes. Not bad at all. The display tells you the time remaining. The washer does not have a fabric softener dispenser. If you want to use it, add it manually to the last (2nd) rinse (when 14 minutes show on the timer). Two rinses are nice - no more detergent residue on my clothes.
I noticed some people have trouble hooking up this this washer. The quick adapter will work with virtually any bathroom faucets that come with the little aerator which you have to unscrew. The drain hose has to drain in the sink because it must be above water level. Otherwise, water will drain inadvertently. This is true for all top load washers.Read more ›
Two weeks in, here's what we've found: This is the real deal. The machine cleans well, cleans more than one might expect, and is not loud. Since hooking it up, we've not had a single problem. It arrived, I might add, ding-free and quickly, from Buy.com, from whom we purchased it through Amazon.
The universal adapter, it's true, is not universal; the only problem we've had was with the initial hookup. In trying to solve it, we learned that Chicago, where we live, has different fawcets than other parts of the country--once we'd removed the aerator from our kitchen sink, we could not get the universal adapter to attach; it did not fit.
We realized we needed to look for another adapter to connect our fawcet (minus the aerator) to Haier's "universal" adapter. Our first efforts were fruitless--two hours and three consultants at Home Depot were of no avail. An online review pointed us toward an adapter sold by ACE hardware. The ACE adapter that worked for us came packaged together with a new aerator (which we did not need) and the adapter proper (i.e., the part that converts the thread on our kitchen fawcett to fit the thread of Haier's universal adapter).
Here is the product that solved our hookup problem: "ACE Aerator and Adapter Set 4 - 13/16" x 24 THD". Product Number/SKU 40092. We bought it out local ACE affiliate. You can buy it here for [...]
We bought the Haier HLP23E to make life easier for us and our newborn. I never would have believed that we could have a functional washing machine in our apartment for $220 bucks. My wife and I are thrilled.
