After days of research I found Danby was the best to go with and here's why: first, they offer an in-home service warranty for one year. All others are carry in, meaning if it breaks you schlep it into the car and into a service center. Two, it's one of the only ones in this price range that has an agitator. Review after review I found that others that didn't have an agitator ended up with tangled clothes. Three, it has an overflow protection. I didn't see any others that offered this so I figured this is probably a good feature being that I"m in a 2nd floor apt. And lastly, the spin tub spins twice as fast as all others and being that I planned to hang dry all my clothes this was a huge plus! I love this little machine, it holds a lot more than I expected. I washed 4 pants (two of those jeans), 10 shirts, a pair of socks, couple pairs of underwear and four hand towels and I felt like I could fit more (without the clothes going over the agitator which is a no-no) but I erred on the side of caution. It was almost a full load for me and in fact I didn't have enough space to dry everything (going to purchase a bigger clothes rack). My clothes came out really clean! The spin cycle worked really well for me. You can't fit everything at once unfortunately, but I was able to fill it to the top and after 3 min. of spin my clothes were only damp and some even practically dry! What I love about this machine: The spin tub, manual modes (I control everything and I like that, including water which can help save water!), It's pretty quiet, agitator, 1 year in home service warranty (I also bought an extra 3 years through walmart for $29.99), comes with a connector piece for your faucet and it fit for me, has rollers to move around and it's not too heavy. Geez, I feel like I could go on. What I dislike: The rollers only move in one direction; forward or backward not sideways (easy fix if you get new ones from home depot), bigger than most because of the extra spin tub, spin tub only fits some of your load at a time (but since it only spins for 3-5 minutes it's really not a big deal or a waste of time). I'm so glad I bought this little machine. The price of $299 makes it pay for itself compared to laundry mat costs and when I move to a bigger place with a bigger machine I plan to give this to my daughter when she goes off to college!
