    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Surprisingly good, for what it is.

    Jun 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price is right, reasonably sized, convenient. Cleans your clothes with no frills.
    Cons: Plastic lid hinges and intake nipple. Loud. Gets "Jingle Bells" stuck in your head.

    Summary: Like other reviewers of this machine, I am an apartment dweller who grew tired of lugging my laundry to the laundromat. My wife saw the XQBM22-C at a local discount store, and thought we should get it. I was quite dubious about because, frankly, I ... read more

  • Great portable washer, very convenient.

    Dec 19, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Convenient, saves the trips to the laundry mats, and saves money!!
    Cons: Hang drying clothes, small loads, and often times the cycle goes off balance.

    Summary: I have lived in big cities and small apartments and I wish I discovered this earlier. It is so convenient to be in the comfort of your own home and doing a load of clothes. I love staying at home on rainy days, watching TV, and finishing up my laundry. ... read more

  • Works great! Saved me lots of money!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfect size for small apartments. Does a decent job of cleaning your clothes.
    Cons: Manual is useless. Jingle bells tune can be annoying after awhile.

    Summary: I bought this washer 15 months ago and it has been a great little washer for me and my family. I have 3 people in my family- me, my husband, and my 6 yr old, so we generate a lot of laundry! I do about 15 loads a week and it has stood up fine. It has ... read more

  • The Little Washer That Could

    Apr 11, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: automatic, efficient, portable, affordable
    Cons: small water leakage

    Summary: Around this time last year, I found myself in a serious predicament...I had somehow accumulated a mountain's worth of dirty laundry and couldn't quite figure out how it had happened. What once was a few pieces that needed washing turned into an ... read more

  • Great VALUE!

    Feb 1, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great value, efficient, small, light, gets job done
    Cons: Jingle Bells Melody, nowhere to stow hoses.

    Summary: I have now owned my Haier XQBM22-C 4.9LB portable washer for 7 months, and let me tell you, this baby hasn't skipped a beat. I use it about 3 - 5 times weekly, I have definately put this machine to it's worth. So what exactly should you expect? ... read more

  • No sir, I am not giving it up!

    Aug 23, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: You get what you pay for. The machine operates efficently and quietly.
    Cons: Need a better manual and the term fully automatic should be reviewed.

    Summary: I had been shopping for an apartment size washer for the last 6 months. This will be my second machine. The first, another brand I gave to a friend. After a lot of comparison shopping and learning what the limitations are of a less than full size washer, ... read more

  • We got what we paid for, sort of

    Jan 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to figure out controls, set wash cycles, and control water temperature
    Cons: Fragile construction, mediocre cleaning, hard on clothes, and nonexistent manufacturer support.

    Summary: I also bought this machine, in part, because of good reviews online. We had a 2-month-old baby (now 15 months). I didn't expect perfection, but I was still disappointed in the performance of this machine. Basically, if your clothes aren't all that dirty ... read more

  • 2 Years and not ONE Problem!

    Oct 15, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, dependable, easy to use. In two years, NEVER had ANY trouble whatsoever!
    Cons: Jingle Bells is GARBAGE! No hose stowage! Better "U" hose connector needed!

    Summary: I thought I would add my 2-cents to the reviews on this product. I purchased my Haier XQBM22-C washing machine through Wal Mart's online catalogue for approx $200, including shipping, about 2 years ago. It was very easy to set up and operate. As ... read more

  • Attention Other Studio Dwellers!

    Oct 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: size, portability, mechanical quality and quietness
    Cons: lack of casters without additional purchase, plastic body

    Summary: Let me summarize by saying that this little machine is worth it's weight in gold, and is definitely worth the precious floorspace you need to give up in order to add it to your furnishings. You can fit it under something like a cabinet or one of those ... read more

    Summary: I live in an apt. on the second floor out in the country. After lugging a month's worth of dirty laundry 17 miles to the nearest laundromat during a busy month, then spending $30 and still taking damp clothes home, I decided there had to be an ... read more

    Cons: Jingle Bells! Badly written, poorly thought-out manual

    Summary: Same story as everyone else: I live in an apartment and got sick of trips to the laundry room, hoarding quarters, etc. Found this product on epinions and found other reviews very helpful. Reasonably confident that Haier products are well-built and ... read more

  • Now that it's working, it seems to be working; not recommended for heavy duty items.

    Pros: Compact & cute. Decent job cleaning. Lightweight clothes practically dry after spin cycle. Year warranty.
    Cons: Likely hard to service for parts. Customer service virtually useless. Cannot conveniently switch water temperatures.

    Summary: First of all, THANK YOU to everybody who writes Epinions because they have been very helpful to me! Hope this review helps someone too. SUMMARY (also see "Conclusions" below): * New machine arrived NOT WORKING. * Two-week wait for repair person, ... read more

  • One of my best purchases ever.

    Jun 4, 2004 by

    Pros: Small, lightweight, easy to hide and easy to use.
    Cons: Hard to find retailer-that carries them. Drain didn't fit over sink. They need MATCHING MINI-DRYER!

    Summary: I live in an apartment and despite having access to 3 people who own washer/dryer's that I could use, I HATE lugging my laundry out and dragging it back home. After a long search for the perfect little washer, I found this Haier at my local Menards. It ... read more

    Pros: Price, effective cleaning, convenience, size
    Cons: Small leaks, some spin cycle problems, some tangling of clothes

    Summary: I too was looking for a small washer for my one bedroom apartment (my building is without laundry and I was sick of going to the laundromat). I wanted a front loader like is common in London apartments, but when I was able to find one it was outrageously ... read more

    Pros: Small, quiet, cheap.
    Cons: No proper way to secure attachments, intake hose attachment design.

    Summary: Why I always wanted my own washer I've always wanted my own washer in my downtown apartment. A few years ago, I saw an Italian front loading combo washer/dryer (washes and dries in the same unit), and I thought that I found my match, but the ... read more

  • I have poor performance from the Haier 4.9lb portable washer

    Mar 2, 2004 by

    Pros: It IS small, light, and easy to assemble.
    Cons: The leaks are major, it does NOT WORK, cute design but not a SMART design.

    Summary: I bought this based on the reviews here at Epinions, lol! I actually do appreciate the well written reviews here and I know you were sharing accurately what your experiences have been. Mine was a great price online, just under $200.00, and I was so ... read more

  • BY GOLLY IT REALLY WASHES WELL!!!

    Feb 25, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, simple instructions, small enought to tuck away anywhere.
    Cons: First signs of leakage frightend me but all gone now. Nothing else to report

    Summary: I've been doing my own laundry since I was 14 (1985). Up until then, my mom did laundry old school style...with a washboard in the sink. I will never to this day understand this! As soon as I was old enough, I knew better, so I headed to my nearest ... read more

  • Miserable Lack of Quality

    Feb 20, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap (seemingly, but not really), small
    Cons: Leaks, Incorrectly assembled, Useless helpline, Badly written instructions, spin cycle leaves washing dripping

    Summary: Update: this review is no longer visible to the general public at epinions, I'm not sure why. Censorship? Corporate sponsorship? Very disappointing ... This was genuinely one of the worst items I've ever bought, even looking back after several years. To ... read more

    Pros: Easy to assemble, runs great, clean design, compact.
    Cons: A little leakage, nothing a few rags couldn't handle. Plays Jingle Bells.

    Summary: Zhany2 pretty much said it all. What can I add? I live in a small apartment complex in the Bay Area that has a laundry room, one that the landlord doesn't maintain in working order (something I didn't discover until after I had moved in and run a few ... read more

    Pros: It weighs 45 pounds.
    Cons: No hose hookup, splashes water, twists clothes, lousy cleaning.

    Summary: After witnessing the death of my third Sears Kenmore Portable Washing Machine in six years, I decided to buy a Haier XBM22-C for a couple of reasons. It was inexpensive, and my Kenmore Dryer could never handle a full load from the washing machine, so I ... read more
