Leisurewize Portable Eco Washer Washing Machine
Able to spin both ways for a really deep clean and better rinse, this Leisurewize machine is the latest in their line of portable washers.
The most important thing to mention first is that it is a manual machine. So rather than plugging it in and allowing it to do the work for you, you have to turn the hand crank at the top of the machine. You could argue that this actually makes it the most portable item on our list though – no need to hunt for a plug or be restricted with positioning. Perfect for that wilderness camping.
It comes complete with suckers on the bottom for keeping it in place, so even if you go a bit wild with the manual turning, everything is safe. Great for those emergencies, university halls, caravans or even just washing those smaller items of clothing which are needed immediately.
- Manual - no need for electricity
- Spins excess water out well
- Manual work could also be seen as a negative for some
If you're willing to put in the arm work, then this is by far the best answer to your portable washing needs
- Dimensions: 34.3 x 35 x 35cm
- Washing Capacity: 2.5L
COSTWAY 2 in 1 Portable Washing Machine
You will probably agree that this is one of the best looking portable washing machines around, but products like this aren’t all about looks.
We are pleased to say it is also up to the task, too. You can easily set the washing/spinning programme and water levels according to your demands, so a whole host of clothes and fabrics are able to go in. Once you set everything, you can leave it to do the work for you.
You get 6 programs and 3 water level selections, and there is also a pause button just in case. An LED screen will let you know how long the wash has left, and if it encounters any issues.
It is compact in size despite the fact it can hold a lot. Once you get through getting to grips with it, you’ll find it a breeze.
- Washes and dries
- Choice of washing modes and water levels
- One of the larger on the market - not massively portable
Not one of the best for move-ability, but still portable and great for anyone who doesn't want to bother with too much plumbing in
- Dimensions: 50 x 34 x 36cm
- Drying Capacity: 3.5kg
- Washing Capacity: 3.5kg
FitnessClub Portable Twin Tub
A huge 7.6kg capacity overall makes this portable washer one of the largest out there, which is great if you need something which can cope with huge loads but is still smaller than a freestanding washing machine.
It will wash and dry. Timer control allows for control over both functions, choosing between 1-15 minutes for washing and 1-3 minutes for dry. Because both functions use separate chambers, everything is kept in really good condition and you can also use both at once to save precious time.
This does make it one of the biggest portable washer dryers on our list, but the sheer adaptability is worth it.
- Washes and dries at same time
- Timer switches
Despite the size and fact it takes a little while to get used to, this is a fab overall washer dryer which will save your dirty washing basket on several occasions
- Dimensions: 60 x 36.5 x 70cm
- Drying Capacity: 3kg
- Washing Capacity: 4.6kg
Leisure Direct Portable Washer
Able to both spin wash and spin dry, this is a handy product if you want an all in one which does the whole task.
You get a timer so you can perfect the load, and it is one of the most generous when it comes to how much it can hold with both washing and drying. You can also pick between a normal wash and a gentle wash, so whether you’re getting the dog’s blanket or your underwear clean, they won’t come out damaged.
It will automatically switch off after the timed programme ends, and it will drain automatically as long as the pipe is lower than the item. Weighing only 11kg, it isn’t too much of a pain to carry and move around, which makes it perfect for caravans, motor homes and those who have to store it away in between uses.
- Dries and washes
- Self draining
- Load needs to be balanced or it wobbles a lot
A great little machine which requires a little bit of getting used to, but overall is one of the best portable washing machines out there
- Dimensions: 54.5 x 38.5 x 55cm
- Drying Capacity: 2.5kg
- Washing Capacity: 3.6kg
Good Ideas Mini Portable Washing Machine
Ideal for smaller kitchens, students, caravans and washing smaller delicate items, this mini washer is a reliable product which is compact.
It will plug into any 240V outlet so is suitable for the majority of applications. It is also easy to run, and will take clothes up to a weight of around 1kg. The machine itself is lightweight too so you can pop it away after use or carry it from one place to another.
Clothes don’t come out as clean as they would with a normal drum machine, and they also come out quite wet, but you can definitely tell they are freshened up. It is meant for smaller loads and you have to follow the instructions to a tee to ensure nothing goes wrong, but in all it is handy and not a bad price.
- Very time consuming
- Only takes a small amount of clothes
Good for the cost and occasional use
- Dimensions: 45 x 30 x 34cm
- Washing Capacity: 1kg
Leisurewize Twin Tub Portable Washing Machine
Able to wash 3kg of clothing and spin 1.3kg, this is a handy portable model if you need the best of both worlds and need it to be done as effectively as possible.
Because of its effectiveness, it isn’t just for those camping trips and holidays when you don’t want to pay extortionate cleaning fees. If you don’t have space for a full-sized model in your home, or you need to occasionally wash delicates/baby bibs/dog blankets without hunting around the house for a full load, it can help you out.
You also don’t have to wait around forever for it all to be done. A wash takes around 6 minutes and a dry around 2 minutes. Just plug it into the mains, and pop the draining pipe over a sink.
The carry handle is a little flimsy, but you’re probably not going to be holding it long enough for this to go awry. It isn’t possible to use both sections at the same time, either. But apart from these minor issues, it still cleans well and is a nice size to be transported.
- Quick times
- Nice generous size
- Parts seem a little flimsy
For under £100, it is an effective piece of kit which will help you out when hand washing is a no-no
- Washing Capacity: 3kg
- Size: H57 x W60 x D36cm

EASYmaxx 3KG 260W Mini Washing Machine
Perfectly compact to make it easy to store, carry and transport, this mini portable washing machine is the perfect camping companion.
It is also great for keeping at home as a backup washer or for those little bits and bobs you don’t want to hand wash or throw in with everything else. Whether you need some clean trousers for work tomorrow, want to keep the baby clothes separate, or you don’t want to risk your delicates in your large, rather ferocious machine, this little mini model can help you out.
Yes, it is basic and a bit fiddly, but for those little jobs, you couldn’t wish for any more. Washing turns out better than expected, and there are enough functions to get the job done.
There is quite a bit of shaking from the device when it is in operation, but as long as you keep it secured or held down for the spin part then it shouldn’t be an issue; just keep an eye on proceedings.
- Generously sized opening
- Can only use liquid detergent - tabs and powder don’t dissolve
Fail-safe and reliable, this is the only washer you need for taking away with you.
- Dimensions: 50 x 34 x 36cm
- Drying Capacity: 1.5kg
- Washing Capacity: 3kg
Costway Mini Twin Tub Washing Machine
The largest capacity machine in both washing and spinning capability, this portable device isn’t too far off the capacity of some larger washing machine appliances.
You can select the timing between 1 and 15 minutes for the wash and 1 to 3 minutes for the spin, so you have plenty of scope to cater it all specifically to the contents. Draining is gravitational, so make sure it is over a suitable surface when the time comes.
Whether you want it for the caravan, in student accommodation or as an in-between substitute to keep on top of the washing pile, it is suited to any environment.
It can be moved around and carried with ease, and has the bonus of wheels. There is a water hose included if you want to fill it up this way, or you could do it directly from the tap.
- Emptying hose is very short
Great capacity and easy to use makes this our best overall pick
- Washing Capacity: 5kg
- Dimensions: 63 X 35.5 X 72cm
