I'm also intersted in hearing about washers! I peeked at the Haier and got sticker shock & kept searching...
I've been looking at the Danby DTT420 - 70lbs and very basic; limited to hot water less than 105F but has separate 1600 rpm spin cycle drum that will reduce drying time considerably. 10-pound load capacity & manual controls. 29x18x36.
Danby also has a more luxurious 'portable' that will take 145F water; full array of control settings but no where is listed the single drum spin dry RPMs.. 8.8lb capacity. 20x20x34.
A best price of $330 delivered for the 420 is alluring.
