Heavy-Duty 3-Bin Laundry Sorter
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.

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.

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!

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.
