If you lack space at home for a full size washer, and are tired of having huge dry cleaning bills, or lugging pounds of washing back and forth to the laundromat, here’s a small product with the answer to big laundry problems. A portable washing machine. These compact units hold less than full size washers, but they do they same job.
Haier makes three styles of portable washing machines. These little numbers claim to do the work of the larger machines while taking up very little space in your home. They are recommended for apartments as well as houses. These units don’t require a dedicated laundry room, they plug into any standard wall unit and the hoses attach to any faucet. The catch is that you must move (drag, tug, maneuver) the unit into place by a sink.
Haier’s three units are sized 1.0 cubic feet, 1.46 cu. ft. and 1.7 cu. ft. and come with up to four water level settings and a variety of wash settings including delicate. Only the 1.7 cu.ft. model has bleach and fabric softener dispensers.
We found them to retail for between $180 to $280.
Haier also makes a matching set of dryers for these models. Look for more on them here at appliance.net.
