After spending $200 on buying and transporting a used Haier XQJ50-31
portable washing machine from Craigslist, it doesn't quite work. Very frustrating! Before I chuck it and buy a new one instead out of sheer frustration, is there anything that I can do to try to fix it?
Here's what's wrong with it:
1) The first time I tried it, I washed a medium-sized load, and the rinse cycle kept repeating itself until I manually switched it over to the spin cycle.
2) The second time I tried it, the rinse cycle didn't even come on, because the water kept draining out during the wash cycle. About an hour and far too much water later, I finally switched it over to the spin cycle.
It's not a model that is made by Haier any more, and I'm sure it'll cost more than I want to pay to get it fixed. Any suggestions, O mighty denizens of Ask Mefi?
