(More customer reviews)I haven't had any leak problems. The strange noise I was hearing puzzled me. I also envy anybody who can buy this machine straight through Amazon. you lucky ducks you ;-) I had to pay forty dollars for shipping.
Please let me know if you do hear strange noises. I am curious as to how many people get coins stuck inside the drum. It actually took me a while to figure out where the noise was coming from and took the bottom and back panel off, but the noise still continued. I'm not sure how the quarter became stuck in there, and still baffles me to this day. Please keep me updated with any concerns regarding noises. Hopefully, other owners or myself can help.
As far as the effectiveness of the machine, 5 stars says it all. To note, this washer machine doesn't have a drum spindle (not sure what you call the part that takes up space in most washers), so you can actually fit many more articles or clothing and/or towels inside.
Please let me know if this review was helpful.

A nice alternative to lugging laundry to the laundromat, this portable washer makes it easy to wash up to 6 pounds of work or weekend attire, baby clothes, delicates, and other small loads from the comfort of home, without taking up a lot of room--perfect for apartments or other small living spaces. The compact unit features a 1-cubic-foot stainless-steel tub and user-friendly electronic controls with LED indicators. Simply fill with items to be washed, add soap, close the door, and make a selection. Choose from three water levels based on the size of the load (save water by choosing a lower level for smaller loads) and three wash cycles--heavy, normal, and quick. Standard cycles include delicate, soak, and whites; special cycles include handwash, sanitary, and unique or exclusive. Other highlights include quiet operation, cycle-status lights, an end-of-cycle signal, and an adjustable leveling leg to balance the machine if placing it on an uneven surface. When finished, the washer can be moved to an out-of-the-way place like a corner or closet thanks to its heavy-duty smooth-rolling casters. An easy-installation kit with a quick-connect sink adapter comes included. Weighing about 43 pounds, the washer measures approximately 17-1/4 by 17-3/5 by 30 inches. From the Manufacturer
