My washing machine is a front loader and I cannot select a 10 or 15 minute cycle. I found a labor saving device you may want to check out. It is the Wonder Washer. It is a small counter top washing machine with a gentle and regular cycle. It holds up to 800g of fiber. The timer is infinitely adjustable with a rotary dial up to 15 minutes. It is compact taking little counter and/or storage space. I found it at amazon.com
Have you purchased and used? i'm a sucker for gadgets!
I love it!
