Rated 5 out of 5Â by BusyMom315 Sturdy and Simple
I hemmed and hawed about this purchase due to some of the negative reviews. But then I figured, well, it's the Container Store, if I hate it, I can return it. But I love this sorter. It's brought order to my chaotic laundry area. I have two young kids and a hubby - none of whom are gentle with just about everything, and we've never had a problem with this guy. No problems with the snaps either - even when we squish the clothing down to make more room. Would repurchase, but I don't know that we'll ever need to!

This Laundry sorter is larger than I imagined, which is a good thing. Also find it to be commercial/industrial quality in its construction. Very easy to put together and well designed. The hanging bag is very thick and high quality. The wheels are heavy duty as well. Great piece of laundry equipment. You won't be disappointed. I researched this category extensively before choosing this sorter. You can take my word for it, or do your own research to reach the conclusion that this unit is the best choice!

Â by mary123 Exactly What I Was Looking For
Moving into a new apartment, with not a lot of space for laundry, I knew I needed not only a hamper but a space to sort clothes as well. Looking into sorters, this was the only one that had three large compartments and looked sleek and professional. It saves me time and space when doing laundry, and even rolls so that I can easily move the whole sorter from the bathroom to the laundry area with ease. The only thing that would make it better was if the 3 compartments were separate.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by CyberMike1 Not this one
OK, so the frame is sturdy. That much is true. But the system used to keep the bags attached to the frame is flimsy and if you get too much laundry in the bags, they collapse off the frame. Secondly, you might notice that the three bins are sewn to form one bag divided into three. One doesn't realize how awkward that is until you have filled up one bin and are ready to put it in the laundry. Other sorters have separate bags so when one fills up, you pull it alone and the rest stay on the sorter. And what happens when you have one of the divisions full and the others nearly empty? It becomes unwieldy. Not this one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Patsee Have been looking for a replacement sorter bag for years! The bag is an improvement of previous bags that came with the sorter. It so practically made -- easy to attach and wash.
Thank you Container Store!

A little bigger than I thought but this is definitely what is needed. My boyfriend and I are able to separate our clothes then keep towels in a separate compartment. Definitely worth the money!

I love the size of this bin and the portability of it so I was disappointed when one of the snaps ripped off. It is an expensive item that only lasted 8 months. My previous 3-Bin laundry sorter had lasted 19 years.

Love the product itself but had rust stains on the laundry bag, around buttons, and on side bar.
Will be keeping it for it's functionality but wish it were new out of the box. :/

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JackieGarcia This laundry sorter made laundry so much easier!!!
This heavy duty laundry sorter def meets all my standards!!! I've purchase so many types of laundry baskets but they never worked for me because I have all sort of laundry I have to wash (work, towels, etc) and having multiple baskets took up too much space. I was at the container store when I saw this laundry sorter and I knew I had to buy it!! I have tons of laundry and trust me this thing is very heavy duty!! I also love how I can put all my clothes in this sorter versus having a lot of baskets. It was worth every penny!!! Def 5 stars for me!!

Â by ORuss Weak snaps
The frame is very sturdy but the snaps unsnap with very little volume or weight in the 3 compartments. Good news is they don't rip out, they just always have to be re-snapped.
The weak snaps are a flaw that completely offsets the benefits of the large organizer. I'd take the BOTH back (yes, I ordered 2) if I lived closer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Scooper Absolutely love this!
Better than carrying a wash basket - as I get older, it's sometimes hard to carry a basket full of dirty laundry from the clothes shoot over to the washer - this makes it so easy to just roll it over.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Chadwick Poorly Designed Laundry Sorter - Beware of Snaps
I should have read previous reviews of this product before purchasing. The chrome-plated frame was easy to put together and it appears quite sturdy. The wheels make it convenient and easy to move. The laundry sorter bag appears to be sturdy although I can't tell because whenever we put clothes into the bins, two snaps come undone and the compartment falls. When you pull to snap one side, the other side unsnaps. Quite frustrating and I would not recommend this product - it shouldn't break with each use. Save your money! I rated this product 2 stars because the product does not function as it should - we only have 2 functioning compartments.

It came in such a small package.
Best of all it required no tools to put it together.
Less than 5 minutes assembly time.
Wheels are sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MoreSpaceNeeded Awesome Item
I want to give this item 4.5 stars....but that isn't an option. I love this. The wheels are so smooth, it moves from carpet to hard wood like it's on ice. The sorter pockets are a generous size, for 2-people. If you have a large family, I can see how this wouldn't hold everything.
It is not complicated to put together, but this is where the 1/2 star comes off. I have the very early stages of arthritis....my hands feel like I 'just woke up' all day long. There is a cross bar that attaches to legs of the bin. You have to push in a button on the legs, slide the cross bar over it, until a hole in bar matches up with the depressed button. It was nearly an impossible task for me. Anyone who has more advanced arthritis, or carpel tunnel, or any type of hand weakness will NOT be able to put this together. But, the rest of assembly was easy.
The other item I have seen mentioned is the end snaps pop open when the sorters are full. This is easily remedied by filling the center sorter with the heaviest items (towels, blankets, denim clothing, etc). It is a matter of physics. You need to put lighter weighing clothes on the outside bins, and the heaviest in the middle. The snaps will NOT come open.

It is amazing how this one simple item to sort and organize laundry has cleaned up my previously messy laundry room! Dirty clothes off the floor and sorted for the wash. Love it!

Easy to assemble but like another reviewer stated- the snap on the end keeps coming undone. I haven't found an answer to this problem but could use some suggestions. I love the bins just not the end snap.

Good mobility of cart and can be cleaned, but the snaps come undone easily(with medium weight per sorter). Disappointment as it was a gift!

I've never been disappointed with anything from the Container Store, and this cart is no exception. Very sturdy, good casters, heavy-duty basket. Carries a lot of wash to the machine without lugging a heavy basket. it's so much nicer than other carts I have seen.

We have had the one with the velcro across that top that holds it to the frame for a year and a half. We have not really had any issues with the velcro yet. However, one of the dividers seams separated. (Was able to repair/reinforce this on my sewing machine fairly easily.) There is a replacement hamper for a reasonable price. Each section holds about two loads of laundry each for us (six total). We have an extra large capacity HE washer. It is perfect for our family of five but we do a couple loads a day.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by WshB All the parts are great - overall, ick.
The frame on this things is solid - the bag, stitching, compartments are top notch. Why an ICK you ask? I can't keep the darn bag attached to the frame! I'm not sure if I'm working the wrong voodoo spell, but I've even pulled out the pliers to try and crimp the snaps together! IT WILL NOT STAY HOOKED! If you put more then one small, lightweight item in each of the 3 bins, that's it! It's going to come undone!! I wish I could figure out how to get this to stay attached so I could use it, but for now, it's just taking up space in my laundry room.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by StlShopper Replacement Liner Not As Shown
My rating is for the replacement liner, not the sorter itself.
I've owned the 3-bin sorter for a couple of years. My sorter looks like the picture - the liner is sewn around the metal bar, allowing for a sturdier delivery when clothes begin to pile up inside.
The metal sorter is built with a frame that is easy to take apart, slide off the liner and replace it. The liner has begun to shred over time, so I ordered the replacement liner.
The "new, improved" version is a snap and tab system that breaks apart whenever you fill the bin. Also, the end tabs slide down the side of the frame. I am so disappointed.
The older liner lasted a couple of years. This one hasn't lasted a week. Why did they have to change something that was working well?
The sorter frame still looks and performs like new. Please bring back the old liner!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by sanlev just as bad as the original
I bought this to replace the original sorter bag which was held on the cart with velcro. This sorter sits in the basement underneath the laundry chute. Whenever anything with a little weight was thrown down (like a towel for instance) the velcro would separate and fall off the cart. I had to use safety pins to keep it on - which didn't work particulary well. I thought this one with the heavy duty snaps would hold up better. I was wrong. The snaps open just as quickly and easily as the velcro did. I'm back to using safety pins. For 70 bucks (the original price of the entire unit, and 20 more for the replacement bag) I would expect a better product.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DarinN Heavy-Duty Sorter really isn't
I don't write many reviews but after my experience with this rolling hamper/clothes sorter I thought I'd post my experience.
Assembly was very simple and was completed in just a couple minutes. The metal frame and wheels are sturdy and well made.
That's why I was surprised when I attached the cloth sorting bin to the frame. I think the bins are generously sized, but the thin velcro used to loop around the frame to attach the sorting bin doesn't hold up.
I've had the sorter for a couple months and I simply cannot keep the cloth sorter attached to the frame.

This heavy-duty laundry sorter is the best I've come across. The bag is one piece with partitions and snaps to frame. Much better than my previous one which had separate bags that attached to frame with rods. And this one folds flat when not in use. Great for any size household. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MarcNatAndCat Great until you put anything in it
I was really hoping to like this product. It looks great. I left one half of one of the sections full overnight and the velcro separated so all the fabric fell. It's done that two times since then.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by aaanders83 Great idea...bad design
I bought this hoping it would solve our dirty laundry storage issues. The idea of the sorter is great....the design makes it not ideal. It works great if you have very little in the bin. As soon as you start putting clothes in the sections, the velcro holding the fabric on to the frame comes undone and your left with a sorter that's half on the frame half off the frame. The finish started peeling off the frame as well. It would be a great sorter if there was a better way securing it to the frame. Velcro just doesn't cut it when you get clothes in there.

The sorter is : easy to install, sturdy, a best buy and has made my job in the laundry so much easier. I now have convenient place for separating and holding items by color or material before washing. I wonder how I did without it .

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ElfaFanatic44 My Favorite Purchase
Of all my Container Store purchases, this is one of my favorites. I had my eye on it for a while, then ran out to buy it soon after purchasing our current home (and finally having our own washer and dryer!). I love that I can easily wheel it around our laundry area, from washer to dryer to folding area. I've had it for over three years now and the large wheels roll just as smoothly as on Day 1. The velcro still holds just fine, despite regularly filling each section to the top. I love that the canvas can be removed for laundering. Heavy duty construction TOTALLY worth the price.
