Portable Washing Machine Buying Guide

 

A portable washing machine is a great solution for anyone who wants access to a clothes washer but is short on space. It's growing in popularity with the rise in people movies to cities and smaller homes. Since buying one can be an investment, it's important to know what to look for in one before finalizing a purchase.

What is a Portable Washing Machine?


A full-sized washing machine is built around a tub that holds your clothes and soap. Then, the tub fills itself with water and shakes and spins to agitate the clothes and soapy water together. A portable washing machine is similar, but works on a smaller scale. When using one, you still need a power source and water connection, which is usually your faucet. Unlike a regular washing machine, though, it is freestanding and you can move it around.

 

Potable Washing Machine for vacations, dorms, and more.

 

The primary use of a portable washing machine is to allow people who live in small apartments and units to wash their own clothes. Oftentimes, these places don't have in-unit washing. This means residents have to rely on communal washing machines or go to a laundromat. So, a mini washing machine saves money that would otherwise go the laundromat. It also spares you the inconvenience of dragging your clothes outside of the home.


What Kinds of Portable Washing Machines Are There?


Single Tub


It's just like the name suggests: a single-tub portable washing machine only has one tub for washing. The power cord and the water feed tubes provide the unit with what it needs to complete a wash (minus the soap). You generally will need to load the clothes and soap through a panel in the top. Typically, the soap goes in first, followed by the clothes. Make sure not to overload or underload the unit. Either can result in damage from poor balance, jamming, and other problems.

 

These units do not have any ability to dry clothes. To dry your laundry, you'll have to manually hang it up and let it air-dry. In this case, you'll probably need a clothesline.


Dual Tub Washer-Spinner


A dual-tub model will have both a washing tub and a tub that will spin the clothes without water after they have gone through the wash cycle. It does not have any dry air jets; the process of spinning the clothes will partially dry them by removing some of the water. That will significantly reduce the amount of time these clothes need to dry, so you don't need to wait as long until you can put them away or wear them.

 

The two tubs have separate loading panels, and you will need to manually transfer the clothes from the first tub to the second one. These machines are ideal if you have less time or trouble finding space to hang a line for drying. They tend to be wider and may have a smaller load size per tub.

 

Key Features to Look For


Size and Weight


The larger a portable washing machine is, the more clothes you can fit inside it. However, increased size also reduces portability. The proper size for you depends on how much storage space and space next to a sink you have available. You should also be aware of the challenge of getting the machine through any doorways or hallways. (Measure out the space carefully.) In other words, there is a trade-off between size and convenience. If the machine is too heavy to lift easily, you must be wary of scratching or scuffing the floor as you move it around.

 

Wash Cycles

Wash cycles tend to be much shorter on these appliances than on their full-size counterparts. You can generally find the exact cycle lengths in the manufacturer's manual.


Load Capacity


Load capacity refers to how many clothes the machine can wash at once. The average size is 1 cubic foot for a single-tub drum, give or take. More capacity means a bigger machine with less portability. Which size is best choice for you? It depends. If you live by yourself, you probably don't need as much load capacity to keep up with your laundry needs as a multi-person household would.

 

The ideal load capacity also depends on your drying area. If you have plenty of room to hang clothes, then you can set up multiple washes in a row without having to worry about needing the room to dry everything. If you have limited drying room, you will need to wait for the first load to dry before starting another, which can take hours.

 

More frequent loads also means using more soap, water, and electricity, which might add up for those who need frequent washes.

Hookups and Connections


A portable washing machine has two main connections. The first is the power cord, which provides the machine with the energy it needs to run. To use one of these appliances, you will need to have an outlet near a sink. A kitchen or bathroom sink should have an outlet that isn't too far from the faucet for things like blenders, toasters, microwaves, hair dryers, and so on.

 

Next, you will need a source of water that connects to the machine with a hose. The hose should have a drainage hole that has to face into the sink. This lets the waste water drain out of the unit after the washing is complete. Hoses on these machines are compatible with most faucets in the United States. Double-check that the hose connection is tight and that there are no leaks. If there are leaks? Replace the hose.

 

Motor Power


The motor affects the strength of the spinning and agitation motion. The more powerful the motor, the more thoroughly the machine washes the clothes. However, a powerful motor can also become unbalanced more easily. It will also weigh more and be louder.

 

In addition to power, you also need to think about durability. The motor will have a lot of moving parts, so it is the part of the machine that is most likely to break. You should expect it to last a good few years under normal conditions.

 

Noise


Portable washing machines can generate a significant amount of noise. It can be hard to judge how much noise a mini washer can generate—it's not like you can test it out when you are shopping for them online, after all. Just remember the general rule of thumb: the more powerful the motor is, the louder it will be. If the noise is a problem, try draping a towel over the washer to muffle it.

 

Energy Efficiency


Energy-efficient washers can save you a little money, are a little quieter, and also are better for the environment. Look for Energy Star certifications or ratings that tell you how much energy the washer consumes. If you have a machine that has a variety of different settings, then that might affect the amount of energy it uses. A portable machine will naturally use less energy than a full-sized washer.

 

For those who wish to bypass the need for electricity, you're in luck. There are non-electric portable washers available at many places. These manual washers typically work by you manually turning a rotating handle that will spin the clothes tub.

 

Materials


Construction materials make a big difference in how long the unit lasts. In general, the more metal and ceramic the unit has, the more durable it is. Higher-quality materials are less likely to break with use, but of course they are also more expensive. Plastic isn't as rugged, but there are some parts of the machine that need to be (or often will be) plastic, like the spindle and the controls.

 

Warranty

 

Good appliances will often cost a little more. Be sure to protect your investment by checking to see if there's a warranty that comes with the machine.

 

Pricing


Like other appliances, the pricing for portable washing machines can vary significantly. Sometimes it's hard to know when the price is justified. For a compact washer, the most important factors are consistency, durability, and price. Prices generally start around $100 and can rise as high as the $400 range.

 

Final Thoughts: Is a Portable Washing Machine for Me?

Droplets of water reflecting off of a fabric after being washed in the best portable washing machine.


Portable washers are great if you are tired of lugging your clothes down the street to the laundromat and you have some extra room in your living quarters. When taking into account durability, performance consistency, and price, you should be able to find the portable washing machine that's best for you.
