One of the main advantages of this unit is that it is very quiet. The machine works quietly in the background so you can easily put this unit anywhere, even on the second floor. The compact and stackable design is perfect for small spaces, especially for apartment laundry rooms. Another plus is the stylish finish with the silver accent, which is very easy on the eyes. The audible signal is perfect and is loud enough for you to hear in the next room so you don’t have to check on it from time to time.
Despite the quiet operation, the machine tends to make a lot of noise at the end of the cycle. The machine vibrates loudly before the cycle ends, but aside from this, it tends to be quiet. For those who are bothered by the noise, they can use a felt padding under the machine to deaden the sound. Another negative is the flimsy lint filter. It easily blocks up and requires regular maintenance.
