STABER WASHING MACHINE

FAQS


Read What People Are Saying About Staber Washers...

“This machine has been the best thing I have ever bought. I have told my mom, neighbor and friends how happy we are with this machine. I think you may have some new customers coming soon! I do not recommend anything unless I am completely happy with the customer service as well as the performance. Staber has done both for us. Your service is the best I have ever seen in any industry and the machine is quieter than my last machine by leaps and bounds!”—Suzette in CA

“We received our new Staber washer about a month ago and LOVE it! We bought it sight unseen based on your ads and testimonials on the Internet and really thought we were taking a terrific chance on a thousand dollar machine, but it is everything we hoped for and performs excellently. We are very pleased that we bought the Staber vs. a Maytag® or Whirlpool® front loader.”—Bonnie in MI

“I recently bought a Staber washing machine. Everything you said about this washer has proved to be true. I use less water, less fabric softener, and have hardly used any soap the past two weeks. My clothes are not wrinkled and take a lot less time to dry. They also seem to be a lot whiter and cleaner. We are very pleased so far with this purchase. We will never own another Maytag®! We are also glad that this product is made in the USA! The information we have read that came with the washer seems like it will be very easy to repair ourselves if we need to work on it. The size of the load you can wash with this model is twice as big as the super size capacity washer we used to have. The first impression my brother and I had of the capacity this washer would hold is very deceiving the first time you look at it. We almost left the store after looking in the lid. My brother and I are very pleased with our Staber Washers. Thanks very much!!”—Tom in IA

“My colors look brighter already, my whites are whiter, and I still have a hard time believing it does it on one ounce of detergent and bleach. With my old washer I used at least a cup of soap and bleach on my whites. The washer is so easy to use and my clothes don't feel crowded with a bigger load.”—Thelma in AZ

“I’ve found that I can basically double the amount of clothes I was doing in my old washer. I actually was able to wash my comforters (queen size) one at a time without overloading the washer. I can hang clothes outside and they will be dry in as little as 3 hours. I don’t normally respond to a company this way but I think the product is great and the service was very good as well, which is rare in today’s business climate. Thanks!”—Bob in MO

“Four weeks ago, we purchased one of your washing machines--and WE ARE VERY PLEASED. My wife and I wish to express our complete satisfaction with your product. The machine is a wonderful testimony to your design and fabrication skills. We have noticed that it truly gets our clothes cleaner than the top loading Maytag® we owned for years. And it does this with far less soap and water-- a big savings. We are amazed that the wash water that drains is so dirty. I guess the machine is removing years of dirt that the Maytag® left behind. I collect and repair old cars for a hobby and have been impressed with the way it removes the grease and dirt from my coveralls. During nice weather my wife usually hangs clothes on the outside line. But with our old Maytag the lint residue, usually on dark colored clothes, frequently made it a necessity to run them through the electric dryer to remove the lint. Your machine seems to leave very little lint which is a big plus. And it saves the cost of running the electric dryer. Yes, we are pleased and are trying our best to tell all our friends and neighbors about your great product. One very nice benefit is that is is made Ohio, USA, not offshore, ugh! Good Luck -- keep up the good work! And best wishes during this holiday season and in the New Year to all your employees.”—Rich in PA

“I can't believe how clean my laundry comes out with such little water. I have the discharge hose going to a small bathroom sink with absolutely no possibility of over flowing. I researched washing machines for two months and decided on the Staber due to its simplicity and efficiency. Thanks for designing such a great product.”—Mike in NY

“I actually enjoy doing laundry now. I find I can do twice the size of loads as before. I am impressed by its capacity, its cleaning action, and how much water it extracts during the final spin.”—Heather in MI

“Just wanted to let you know that I am still very pleased with the Staber washer that I purchased in January. Everything is great & I can't get over how much cleaner our clothes are! Plus, I really have not had to purchase any detergent in months. This in itself is such a cost savings. Please pass on my compliments about what a great product the Staber washer is!”—Diane in NJ
“My wife loves it and the clothes are cleaner than ever. I like the simplicity of the washer, and its quietness.”—Bryan in OH

“I've had my Staber washing machine for 15 months, and I am more pleased then ever with everything about it. One of the reasons I was attracted to it was because it is advertised to be "end-user repairable," with all the mechanical parts easily accessible from the front of the machine. With the solid, quality, straight-forward engineering that goes into these machines, and the long warranty, I wasn't expecting anything to go wrong. Still, I didn't want to have to be dependent (and wait or spend money on) on a repair person to fix simple things. Well, about a week ago, it refused to drain or spin after the rinse cycle. I tried to re-set it a couple of times, but it still would not drain or spin. I followed the simple, step-by-step trouble-shooting guide in the manual, and had it fixed in about 15 or 20 minutes total, including time to diagnose and then fix the problem! (And I certainly am not especially mechanical.) Turns out that a small screw that had been left in the pocket of some shorts I had been washing had come out and become lodged in the pump blades, and the machine properly shut itself down from an operation that would have required the pump blades to spin. I have so far been very happy with everything about this machine; it is nice to have a product that DOES come through strongly on all the claims about it by the manufacturer.”—Kristi in VA

“...laundry is looking great. It is a bit hard to accept the 1 oz. of detergent, but we have stuck to the instructions and had ZERO problems. I'll say my clothes look just as good or better than ever! No doubt in my mind. We are very satisfied and I cannot tell you how much the water-economy means to us - we are "on the grid" but have our own water system so the water-economy is really what sold me. ALL IS WELL - we love our Staber. Take care - and I will recommend the machine to others! It is just enough different that you need a customer with an open mind or an engaged-conscience but that is their short-coming, not your machine's.”—Ken in AR

“Just wanted to let you to know that my wife loves the washing machine we purchased from you. It does everything as advertised. That is a lot of praise, as the machine had a lot of promised claims to live up to.”—Mike in PA

“I received my washing machine on Monday. After unwrapping it in the driveway, my son, husband and the truck driver looked it over and when they saw the tub, all agreed that I would be very disappointed. Were they ever wrong! I had been saving dirty clothes in anticipation of its arrival and spent the next two days washing clothes, sheets, towels, and blankets. I even ended up washing my little dog's "bear rug" head and all, and it came out as good as new. Towels that I had been planning to throw away came out so clean and fresh smelling, I couldn't believe it. My husband commented, totally unsolicited by me, that his running clothes and towels had never smelled so clean. The funny thing is that I used only 1 tablespoon of Surf detergent and unscented Bounce in the dryer and had absolutely stuffed the tub just to see what would happen with this smelly load. Needless to say, I love my new toy, and that is what it feels like when I use it. I can hardly wait for the guys to dirty some more clothes! Thanks for proving that American-built really can be the best.”—Barbara in NY
“Wanted to let you know that the machine is doing a fine job of cleaning with less water and less soap. The clothes, etc., are softer without so much soap embedded.”—Jeanette in AZ

“Just a note to tell you how much better your washing machine is than any other machine I've used. Shortly before ordering your machine I purchased a Calypso® washer and dryer pair, which is pretty much in the same price range as your machine. The Calypso® did not get the clothes clean, ripped and tore some of the clothes and the clothes were very wet when taken from the washer. Needless to say, I returned them. Since I've been using your machine, all my clothes have come out clean even when I wash them in cold water, the clothes are so dry when removed from the washer that it's cut my drying time in half. As an added bonus I've not had any more skin rashes since I've been using your Staber machine and prior to using your washer I was bothered almost constantly by eczema and hives.”—Karen in NC
“Did my first load of laundry on Sunday (yes, Easter) and am very impressed. Washed in cold water because my water heater hasn't arrived yet. Could not believe my eyes, how clean and stain-free everything was. Last night washed my 'hack-around' jacket that was badly spotted with oil stains. Pre-treated the stains with ZOUT® and again washed in cold water. It looks like a new jacket. To repeat myself, I love my Staber washer. Thank you for a wonderful product.”—Suzanne in NY

“We bought a Staber washer in February and LOVE our new machine. It is everything you said it would be! It really is unbelievable how much water and soap we save. I only wish we had gotten one sooner.”—Suzu in CA

“We've been using it for about three weeks now and just love it! It runs so quiet. The clothes come so clean and with hardly any soap. They also dry very quickly. Thank you very much for a quality product....and the best part of all is that it's made in the good ole' U.S.A.!”—Paul in WI

“I know I said if I didn't write, assume all was well - but I have to tell you, this machine is terrific! The drum looked small at first, but a huge amount of clothing disappeared inside without being crowded, and was easy to retrieve. It's actually fairly quiet, and sounds better, and more interesting, than a standard washer - that's an odd thing to write, but there's a difference. When you listen to machinery a lot, some things sound balanced and stable, and some don't, and your washer sounds like a high-quality machine tool. Good instructions, and I like the controls, too - simple, straightforward, easy to clean around. As an engineer by training, I really appreciate the level of engineering design and usability testing that obviously went into this product. I measured electricity consumption on my e-meter, and it was spot on. Thanks again.”—Kate in NY

“We've been running several loads a day trying to catch up from not having a machine for more than 2 weeks, and I LOVE IT! It seems that the clothes are getting cleaner than they were with my old washer, too, though I am the only one in my family who notices. :-) At first I was afraid to fill it really full of clothes, but it seems to do just fine if I fill it all the way. It will be interesting to see the difference on our water and electricity bills when we settle down to our typical laundry load.”—Helen in CA

“Very pleased with service provided by your staff and the performance of the washing machine. As advertised, your machine uses significantly less water, detergent and spins more water from the clothes, thus decreasing the dryer time. Nice unit!”—Vaughn in ME


“It works great. I was so surprised at how easy it is to load and I can tell a big difference in my clothes. In other words, I love it.”—Martha in IN

“I know for sure that we use less water. We have a metered water softener and that usage is way down. Saves on salt, too. Clothes are softer, I think because it rinses better. I don't smell the scented detergent when they are done drying. They dry quicker. Clothes are cleaner with the Staber.”—Tim in WI

“I used to own the Staber 2304 model washer until renovations to our home (resulting in a smaller laundry room) made my Staber difficult to fit. We sold our machine and purchased a compact stackable washer-dryer set. The new washer is very poor quality compared to your Staber, even though the new washer is from a reputable company. In my opinion, the Staber is without a doubt the best quality washer in the market. Other machines may have more "bells and whistles" but the Staber is a workhorse, well designed and very reliable. We have six in our family and I do about 10 loads of laundry each week. I never had any real problems with the machine and it did a really good job getting the clothes clean. Needless to say, we are returning the other machines and will likely purchase a new Staber in the future.”—Kym in OH

“I decided upon the Staber after purchasing a top-of-the-line Kenmore® washer only 5 years ago. There have been many problems with the Kenmore® and now the bearings on the plastic tub are going out. The cost for parts is over $400 with me performing the repairs. Upon arrival of the Staber, my wife had to put a comforter into the machine because she couldn't believe it would hold very much. To her surprise it held the Queen size comforter with room to spare. We look forward to using our Staber a long time and it's nice to buy a product American made.”—Kenneth in ID

“Our Staber 2304 was delivered today and I am running my 8th load. My husband and I are very impressed. Our 3 teenage sons are amused and glad to have clean laundry again! We took the suggestion to not use detergent on these first loads and are amazed at the soap suds draining out. It is working great! Things are clean and they smell -- like nothing!!”—Marilyn in OH

“I am amazed at how gently our new Staber washer treats our clothes. I have washed silk and rayon articles in the Staber that I would not wash in my old traditional agitator machine, even though that machine had a so-called "gentle" cycle. But my favorite attribute of the Staber washer is its incredible rinsing powers: no more sudsy clothes or linens! I'm loving it! I think it was a semi-crazy thing to buy a $1,000 appliance based on what I read on the Internet and on your website, but I'm glad I did. I have washcloths that are completely soft for the first time, now that there's no soap residue left in them.”—Nancy in MA

“We purchased the Staber Washer over a year ago; the washer has preformed beyond our expectations, and all clams that were made on the Staber Web Site are true. When the items are removed from the Staber they are almost dry, they spend far less time in the dryer than normal. Could not be happier.”—Gary in KY

“Things are going great with the Staber washer. I can honestly say for the first time that I'm completely happy with something I purchased over the phone. I only have 4 solar panels so this washer is very important for us to save power. Thanks for everything.”—Darrin in AZ

“I wanted to drop you a line about the Staber washer I purchased in January of this year. First of all I had my doubts but I looked on the company's website and read about the features of the washer and decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did. I was told the first couple of times you wash your clothes to use no detergent. I was skeptical thinking my clothes absolutely would not come clean. My husband works at a power generating station and also on the equipment he drives doing his job. His clothes are the dirtiest pieces of clothing on this earth. Although his jeans are washed they always looked dirty, that is until I bought my Staber. It is unbelievable. His jeans once again look new, using a tiny bit of detergent. I have put my soap in a liquid dish soap bottle and just give it a small squirt. My cotton bed sheets are now softer than I thought possible and bath towels are unbelievable. The towels are fluffy and twice the size they used to be. They were so full of soap they were weighted down. I don't get excited about most things but I am absolutely sold on this machine. Thank you for introducing me to a great product.”—Yvonne in IA

“We just received our Staber washing machine today, 2/18/2005. After getting it into the house we connected it up and let it run through one cycle empty. Wanted to be sure all was working and no leaks. Well, no problems so the real test, got some dirty items and tossed them in. Followed the excellent instructions which came with the unit. Turned it on and what an incredible machine. I was talking to a friend in New Jersey and didn't have to strain my voice or ears to have a conversation. I couldn't hear the unit even upstairs unlike the old unit we retired. What an outstanding machine Staber has made. I did my research, but didn't know what I was really purchasing. My wife and I are so impressed and the folks at Staber were so helpful in answering all my questions prior to making the purchase. I can't wait to tell all my family and friends about the Staber washing machine. This is a very fine unit and does an incredible job. If you're considering purchasing one of these machines, I think you'll be impressed and not regret making the purchase. Made well, made in the USA, and made right!!”—Scott in MD

“We received the washer in perfect condition last Monday. I can't tell you how happy I was to find that the washer was everything I hoped that it would be. We immediately put it to work washing all kinds of clothes and it is hard to believe it can wash with as little water as it uses. Please feel free to use me as a reference for you washer and I will be happy to demonstrate it as well. It is so wonderful to find a company that makes things that are built to last and service directly by the end user. There is still a remnant of Americans who do not waste energy and resources for expediency!”—Tim in GA

“It performs just as advertised! Hardly any detergent needed, less water, less time to finish laundry...washed a "dry clean" only rayon outfit the other day, it came out beautifully plus I love that it's made in the USA. I previously had a Maytag®front loader which I moved to a rental house ( I don't miss it!). Thanks for delivering what you promised.”—Judi in FL

“We've been using our Staber washing machine now for well over a month and it is the best washing machine we've ever used! It's saving us water (which is VERY important here in Southeast Arizona), electricity (10 cents a Kilowatt hour) detergent, and TIME (45 minutes per load compared to 75 minutes for big brand name I almost bought). Our clothes come out cleaner (and not beat up) and dry faster. I've already grown accustomed to the sounds it makes as well. My friends and neighbors think it's very HIGH TECH! I literally 'agonized' over which washing to purchase over a period of weeks. I consulted many sources, and checked many prices. I had it narrowed down to the new Frigidaire® 3.5 cu. ft. model, but when I really compared it to the Staber, the Staber beat it hands down. And I was able to purchase the Frigidaire® for about $650 (no pedestal). Once I realized that it used 23 gallons vs. 16 gallons for the Staber, took 75 minutes to launder a load, it used much more electricity than the Staber, and the lifespan and maintenance costs for the Staber were MUCH MUCH better, the right choice was a no-brainer. American-made right down the road from where I grew up. It does what it is supposed to do in a very good manner! What else can we say? Great product - Great Price - Great Customer Service. THANK YOU Staber!”—Doug in AZ

“Well, I am very pleased so far. I can really see a difference in my laundry. Everything is much cleaner and whiter. I also noticed that the clothes are much softer and I have discontinued using fabric softener. I just don't need it. Overall I am very pleased. Your customer service is excellent. Thanks again.”—Eleanor in CA
“We just received our Staber washer yesterday. I have done several loads of wash; all came out very clean and smelling great! I used the Staber detergent, too! Although I haven't had my washer for very long I am very impressed so far. It is a very stylish looking machine, too. I will have to admit when my hubby did an Internet search on washing machines I was a bit reluctant as I had never heard of Staber before. I did my research and I soon was looking forward to the delivery of the machine. I want to thank you for getting the machine out to us so fast. (Our other machine just dropped dead all of a sudden!!!) Great machine! I am telling all my friends about Staber!”—Shirley in MI
