It proceed in less than perfect way.

Puddles all around and the washer dancing on top of the bigger washer.

Well, at least we know what to do next.

It's still a nice effort.

 

The concept is dead simple.

The magnetic supports are way cool.

The whole thing came together quickly.

 

But, still no clean socks.

 

So, what can we do to make it work?

 

Put a taller, maybe water tight, container?

Get better support for the motor?

Heavier base?

 

Sounds good, let's see how it works out.

Completely changing the "drum" of the washer to 2gal bucket. While doing that, why not replace the base with fresh plywood, with no "trial holes"

While this isn't a professional washer, I'm happy with it.

 

It allows me to wash the workout clothes directly after the run, without waiting for the full washer to load and enjoying the fragrances all around in a small apartment.

 

Also, I can experiment with all kinds of "smell removers" which I wouldn't use in a full load.

FYI - the vinegar thing works! Give it a try.

 

And, the speed adjustment helps with different loads and water levels.

Success?

You decide.
