Use a mesh bag with any articles of clothing that have long sleeves, or long legs, especially items that get very heavy when wet like jeans or sweaters. The agitator in the washer side is very powerful and therefore free floating long articles of clothing can get tangled or twisted together during the wash cycle. I have found that the clothing still gets perfectly clean when mesh bags are used, but with no tangling or damage to the fabrics.
When using the washer for the first time try adding the load of laundry with NO SOAP, just water and set the timer for 3-5 minutes. Frequently there is a great amount of soap residue and buildup trapped in the clothing fibers and you will see this as foam or even suds appearing when the clothing is just agitated with clean water. As you wash those same clothes in the Panda a second or third time you will need anywhere from teaspoon to about a tablespoon of high efficiency liquid soap per load depending on the type of fabric, type of detergent, size of load, and how soiled it is.
When not in use, leave both doors to the washer and spin dryer open. This will help any water droplets left behind to evaporate, avoiding any issues with moisture, mold or mildew.
I am attaching a detailed video comparing the two machines so if it has not appeared yet, please check back in a day or two. If you have a question that has not been covered here please use the comments section to ask; I will do my best to answer.
06/27/13 Edited to add: Regarding rinsing: The instructions do NOT state the following tip, but after using the machine for over two months I have tried this rinsing trick with great success. Because my method is NOT part of the original use instructions, I can only recommend you try this next tip "at your own risk". By following these steps, you can quickly and efficiently rinse the just cleaned load to be completely soap free AND you can save the soapy water for re-use with next load (assuming the water is not extremely dirty from the previous load).
Step 1: do NOT drain soapy side. Just transfer the wet soapy clothes to the spinner basket.
Step 2: with *both* spinner doors OPEN, add 5 minutes time on the spin timer. This will cause the spin side to continuously drain any water you will be adding while you rinse. For this step, to add water you can use a diverter/sprayer, the original hose, or small bucket with a pouring spout.
Step 3: When feel you have finished adding enough water to rinse the clothes, use the plastic screen gadget that is included with the spinner to press the clothes down, compacting as them as firmly as possible.
Step 4: Close the lid and allow the machine to spin the clothes as dry as possible.
Compacting the clothes shortens the spin time by effectively wringing at least part of the excess water out and also prevents a waterlogged, unbalanced load from making the whole machine "shimmy". This is also why it is a GOOD thing that the spin side is SO small - for optimal performance in spinning the clothes.
Step 5: If you still see any soap residue in the water being drained, re-set the timer for another 2-3 minutes and use either the hose provided or even a small measuring cup to slowly pour a small amount of additional water into the spin side inlet hole; the added water will be very rapidly dispersed into the garments and provide an even cleaner rinse. Repeat any of the steps as necessary but just make sure there is at least 1-2 full minutes of uninterrupted spin time left where no additional water is added in order to have the most water wrung from the clothes and have the shortest possible drying time. Good luck! - DG
08/18/13 Edited to add - Immediately after posting the original review I had submitted a revision with a disclaimer stating the source of the item(s) under review. I was not aware until today that the revision was not accepted or posted by Amazon, possibly due to the fact that the video portion of the review depicts TWO products with two different sources. To be 100% clear and transparent, I have created and posted over 800 reviews, and as of this edit, all except three items were purchased by me with my own funds; the reviews are either marked by Amazon as such, with a badge stating "Amazon Verified Purchase" or I often state where I purchased the item in the written review, ex. big box store, Walmart, etc. Since I am entirely new to having a product submitted to me for review, this video is unique as it features a product of both circumstances. The video demonstrates my experience two units; the one referred to as the "blue machine" I paid for with my own funds through Amazon.com in Nov. 2011. I received the "white machine" (the greater subject of this review) directly from Sepgo, Inc. at no cost to me for the purpose of testing and review in May 2013. Regardless of source , the opinions expressed are 100% my own with NO influence from any other person or company. Thank you to a youtube user whose question alerted me to the fact that my disclaimer stating such had not been added as requested; my integrity as a reviewer is very important to me and I am glad to have the opportunity to clarify the matter. Sincerely, -DG

UPDATE JULY 8, 2014: I thought I would update the review as it has been almost a year since I purchased the machine. Still going strong. You will definitely want to purchase wash bags for some items as the agitation is quite strong. I have had no issues with leaking at all. The machine performs as it did the day I first got it. I will definitely purchase another one in the future when it comes time to replace this one. It has made life a lot easier to have this machine. I do like the fact that I use less water than a traditional machine would use and my clothes come up just as clean.
Here are the most important things to know about this machine:
1. I've found 8 men's size L t-shirts is a full load. Any more than that and the agitator won't be able to properly turn and flip the clothes.
2. The spin side is half the size of the wash side, so for every full load you wash you'll have to do two spin cycles. But don't dismay, it only takes about 3 minutes to spin a load!
3. It takes about 8 minutes to wash a load.
4. It only takes 1 TEASPOON OF SOAP for a FULL load! I'm not kidding!
5. There are a few really good videos on YouTube that show you exactly how to use the machine, but honestly it's so simple anyone can do it!
6. I would strongly recommend going to your local dollar store to get a couple of laundry bags for washing your delicates since the machine's agitator can be a little rough on them, However, this also means it's great for getting out stains!
First of all, it really is as light as described. It can be picked up with ease, and is small enough to store in a corner.
The washing process is a little more involved than I initial expected. The typical wash/spin dry cycle goes like this:
* Fill tank to a little over 50% capacity with water from a tap.
* Put in a small amount of things to wash. This amounts to around 4 t-shirts, or a towel and one other small item.
* Wash for about 15 minutes.
* Drain out water into a bucket or into a sink (Keeping the hose stable so it doesn't just empty water all over the place is a chore, so I use a bucket)
* Fill tank again with just water and the items, then wash again for about 6 minutes. This serves as a rinsing cycle.
* Empty water, and then place the items into the spin-dry section of the appliance, using press-down pressure to get the most of the water out.
* Spin dry for about 6 minutes.
Now, one very important thing to note is that the spin-dry does a decent job, but you will NEED to hang the clothes up to dry the last amount of moisture out. If you're in a place without a decent air flow, this can be problematic.
Also, the machine is not very good at collecting lint and other various debris, so you will need to take a lint-brush to anything you wash.
Most importantly, these are things I would not recommend washing in the machine:
* Anything extremely delicate.
* Clothes that you have to wear somewhere important, like work or interviews and so on. The state of the clothing tends to look a bit rough without a lot of after-wash care.
What is it great for?
* Socks, towels, non-delicate underwear, wash cloths, sleep-wear, and "around the house" clothing.
In closing. It's actually a pretty impressive little machine, and is certainly worth the money if you're currently stuck with needing to use a laundromat. But, the washing process is a little more involved than you might expect.
You get the picture? it works good for what it does and for the price. It also holds 1/2 - 1/3 a normal load. great for one person. if you got more than that, opt for a model that automates the process, but be prepared to spend more money.
The only problems I found were the lint trap cover keeps falling off and the faucet water intake tube would not fit at all, they should put a snap on type of fitting on it. And some casters would definitely moving the machine easier and it would be better if the spinner capacity was the same as the wash tub.
Practicall small enough to hide it under my corner table
Buy it you will not regret it
Please follow instruction and follow le loading capacity be reasonable this is not an industrial one
-Make sure the drain hose is always in a suitable and well anchored location to avoid messes.
-To be time efficient, you need to set it up efficiently as well, I have it draining into my shower and filled via buckets from the bath (the fill hose goes much slower). I have it sitting on stools for easier access.
-Yes you can wash a load of sheets (probably not comforter) for your double or queen bed
-Do not overfill this guy or the impeller will be rough on your clothes and they wont come out clean. (it only takes 10 minutes to run a cycle anyway!)
-The lint trap is fairly poorly designed, if you have lintly fabrics you will be cleaning them after but this is not an issue for general washing
-The spinner gets things pretty dry, it takes about a day to dry most things fully. I will probably skip buying the accompanying electric dryer
-Parts of the unit do feel a bit cheap, i am concerned about the longevity of the hose components and lint trap mostly.
Overall, very happy.
2 or 3 weeks into owning the Panda I am still trying to find a detergent that doesn't make huge amounts of suds so that I am able to rinse items to my satisfaction, so it's a work-in-progress. Maybe I should have ordered the more automatic machine. I was put off by one of the reviews I read. I feel quite in charge of the model I got and love the spinner. Towels and sheets - they're almost dry after one minute in it. I've had no complaints from neighbors about noise, but I probably use it when they're at work.
Hoses were a concern at first but I think with careful handling they will survive. Unfortunately, the sink faucet does not allow for quick filling. To help it along I add a pailful of water from the bathtub. The lint catcher was difficult at first for me to install and kept falling out during the wash but I seem to have the knack now. Lint doesn't seem as though it will be a problem. All-in-all a very successful buy. Thank you Amazon.
I've only had it for about 2 months so we'll see if it stands the test of time.
