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.
- Washing Capacity: 3kg
- Drying Capacity: 1.5kg
- Size: H50 x W34 x D36cm
OneConcept Ecowash-Pico Mini Washing Machine
For something pretty different to all of the other mini portable washing and drying machines on the market. This OneConcept model is unique in design, colour and shape.
The body features both a rear handle and cable tidy to make transportation and movement easier. Handy if you have to trail it around when camping. It can hold 3.5kg of clothing at any one time to wash and spin, which reduces both the number of washes and number of clothing items holidaymakers have to take with them.
You can set washing for a maximum of ten minutes and spinning for three. This also makes it much more economical than a large heavy load washing machine – ideal if you live by yourself or just need to occasionally wash baby clothes/the dog’s blankets and bedding on its own.
It is available in black or green, so why not choose the one which will match with all of your other appliances or stand out from the rest?
Instructions are a bit poor, as they seem to have been badly translated into English from German. It also isn’t automatic, so manual draining will be needed. But overall, the price isn’t bad, and the generous capacity and ease of transportation may sway you.
- Shape and design are something different
- Cable tidy area
- Instructions are hard to follow - some guesswork involved
Very different, very unique, very bold. If you can get past the instructions by using common sense, it is a great little camping accompaniment.
- Washing Capacity: 3.5kg
- Size: 44 x 35 x 35 cm
- Spin Capacity: 3.5kg

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.
- 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
- Washing Capacity: 4.6kg
- Size: 76 x 36.5 x 60cm
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 by gravity, 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
- Size: 63 X 35.5 X 72cm
AwayDaze Washing Machine & Spin Dryer
With a washing capacity of 3kg and a spin capability of 1.5kg, this lightweight and portable machine is perfect for taking on holiday with you, or simply used as a backup for any quick washes.
There is no plumbing required – fill with hot water and leave it to its own devices thanks to the 15-minute timer. Due to its small size, it can fit anywhere in your home or a caravan/motorhome, without being disruptive.
It shakes a little bit when in use, and it won’t completely dry your clothes, but for its purpose, it is a great little option.

- Drying quality and capacity is minimal
A good little machine if you’re after a portable model with no fuss
- Washing Capacity: 3kg
- Size: 34 x 33.5 x 51cm
