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.
- Size: 57 x 60 x 36cm
- Washing Capacity: 3.5kg
- Drying Capacity: 2.5kg

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.
- Dimensions: 50 x 34 x 36cm
- Washing Capacity: 3kg
- Drying Capacity: 1.5kg
- 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.
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.
- Dimensions: 34.3 x 35 x 35cm
- Washing Capacity: 2L
- Drying Capacity: N/A
- 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
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.
- Dimensions: 60 x 36.5 x 70cm
- Washing Capacity: 4.6kg
- Drying Capacity: 3kg
- 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
Leisure Direct Twin Washing Machine
If you need one of the largest capacities possible, then this one will suit you well. Washing is 4.6kg, and spin is 3.5kg, which is almost double many other models. There is the choice of a normal wash or a delicate wash to best suit whatever your load is, and the drainage function will keep everything as mess-free as possible.
Now here is a clincher – you can use both sections of the machine at the same time if needed. So you can be drying the wash you have just had on while loading up another.
It may seem a big price, but it is a much more advanced model than a lot of others. We would even say that it is pretty good for the price. If you live in a flat or accommodation where there is no plumbing for a washing machine, or you don’t have space, it is one of the best options you could get. The power of a freestanding washing machine, without the loss of space.
- Dimensions: 76 x 36.5 x 60cm
- Washing Capacity: 4.6kg
- Drying Capacity: 3.5kg
- Pumps away used water rather than draining
- Side handles for easy carrying
- Two water inlet points
- Struggles to fully dry if full to capacity
Good size and with an electric pump drain, this is one of the easiest portable washing machines to use and will do a pretty good job too
