Hello. I have an unusual laundry machine question here. I am looking at buying a samsung washer WF337 from craigslist. The catch is that the seller has the machine at a mini-storage with an electrical receptacle but without a water hose connection available. Is there any meaningful way to test a washing machine without a water hookup?

Apparently there is not a water hose spigot outside. How would a bucket work? If I pour a gallon of water into the drum will it wash and spin?

Dont forget that front loaders start the cycle with a drain if any water is detected. So dont fill it up then press start, as you will lose everything you just put in. You may have to fill it through the soap dispenser. Of course all of what I just said applies only of you are going the bucket route.
