Washing machine

This unit looks like it could be great on a boat. Seems to be available in 220vac only so not so good for the US? Does anyone have any experience with this machine?

Reasonably low water and power usage (cold water cycle)

I'm interested in this one too so I'll just bump it along.

Cheers

Re: Washing machine

Same, I'd love to hear some feedback on this. I washed everything by hand for the year we lived aboard in the Caribbean and Bahamas... we threw everything out after we got back.

Re: Washing machine

In the beginning, we washed everything in buckets. It became amazingly clean. However, hanging in the sun and wind are hard on the clothes. The washing and wringing can be hard on one's own body.

For me, the downsides come with complexity: is a water maker now essential? a genset? Where does the water go if a hose clamp fails or a hose gets a split in it?

I'll keep on using on-shore laundries, and keeping smelly laundry until we reach some version thereof.
