  1. Quote: “The construction of the product could potentially lead to an electric shock.”

    Looks like a cheap Chinese-made job and nothing like the quality of the old twin tubs which were well built!!

    Where is this product made?

    If people want a twin tub, I’m sure the best option would be to buy a reconditioned one that’s about 20 years old or more?

  2. Hi WMUser. It looks so cheap I can’t imagine anyone thinking it would be fit for anything other than occasional use such as at a caravan.

    You like reconditioned washing machines don’t you? There are too many essential parts that are obsolete for my liking. The Hoover twin tub for example has lots of vital parts such as hoses, and the constantly failing (due to bad design) lid latch mechanism that have been obsolete for years.

    The old twin tubs that were really well build must be 40 years old by now ;-)
