Avanti 12 Lb. Portable Automatic Washer

August 6, 2006

Hello -

Does anyone here any experience with the Avanti 12 Lb. Portable Automatic Washer? (Link: http://urlcutter.com/Avanti )

I've seen this listed for sale at numerous websites, as well as at a local discount appliance store... however, I've only been able to find a grand total of two consumer reviews on epinions. Both reviews are very favorable.

Among its positives:

Meets 2004 energy compliance standards

12 lb capacity

Reasonably priced

Numerous authorized service centers in my area

Among its negatives:

Electronic controls (one more thing to break)

Very little consumer feedback

Then there's a feature that I'm not sure if it is positive or negative. The Avanti has no agitator, even though it is a top loader. Instead, it has a system where water is somehow jetted and pulsed through the clothes. This would appear closer to the frontloader method of cleaning clothes, although this IS a toploader.
