A washing machine with a versatile drying function is an extremely handy product for families. One of the most popular machines today is the Costway Portable washing machine. However, the large amount of money to buy this product makes many people wonder if it is really useful. Let’s evaluate whether the Costway Portable washer is good to find the answer to this concern
For the complete newbie, this Costway Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub Washing Machine Spin Dryer is semi-automatic. This means the user does all the work switching between wash, rinse, and spin. This Costway Mini washing machine is a beautified three motors attached to a couple of timers and a wash and dryer bin.
It is dimensions are 24.8 x 15 x 28.5 inches, making it one of the smallest dryer and washer combinations on our list. And it only weighs 26.4 lbs. The Costway Mini washing machine is portable and compact. It is perfect for your limited space such as dorms, apartments, condos, motor homes, RV’s, camping, and more. And the light weight makes it easy for moving.
As you can see in the pictures, It is lid is in black and the sidewall is in gray color.
Costway Portable Washing Machine – Functionality
Feature the twin tub dual-function design can save your precious time by washing and spinning dry loads at the same time. This not only simplifies your work but also reduces the cost for you, as buying two separate units would definitely cost you more.
With 260W washing power and 140W spinner power, this washing machine works highly efficiently. And the large capacity of 12 lbs per wash and 8 lbs per spin helps to support your busy life.
Costway Portable Washing Machine comes with 2 water inlets, one for filling the washer, and one for rinsing during the spin-dry. It also comes with a hose that you can connect to your sink/faucet, but I just used a bucket to fill mine. It was easier for me that way.
As mentioned, the washer is a 12 lbs capacity. I can wash an entire weeks of work clothes in one load; two khaki pants, 5 white t-shirts, and 5 polo shirts
The dry spinning part of the machine is half the size of the washer, so unless you’re okay with wringing out larger items, don’t wash them in this. This also means that you’ll have to spin items a little at a time before you can start a new batch.
Run Time & Capacity
I really like the spin dryer it is fast and efficient and really makes the unit worth while. The Costway Portable Washer cleans well on a 12-minute cycle and rinses well on a 9-minute cycle. A fluffy bath towel will take the full 5 minutes in the spin dryer. Less absorbent fabric will take 3 minutes to dry.
Costway Portable Washing Machine works pretty well but it’s only about 1/4 to 1/3 the size of a double load machine in the laundromat so you’re going to have to do several loads.
Plus I noticed that it tends to overheat after running few times and won’t work, so you have to basically wait until the motor cools down before you can start washing your clothes again.
My only suggestion when using yours (if you buy one), is the built-in drain pump will get rid of about 99.5% of the waste water. I’d suggest raising your machine slightly off the ground so that the drain hose is completely beneath the machine, then gravity will assist the pump in removing the remaining waste water.
That’s what I did and it worked perfectly. Then I just used my bucket again to fill it up to rinse the clothes, and once they were rinsed, I squeezed them out a bit and put them in the spinner
How To Use Costway Portable Washer
First, if you are expecting a fully automatic washer, you would be disappointed. You can’t just set it and forget it like a conventional washing machine, this one is a bit more labor-intensive.
You fill the tub, either with a hose attached to a faucet or with a bucket, then wash your clothes. Then you set the control to drain. Once the draining is done you refill the tub for the rinse cycle, and start again.
Once done you transfer the clothes to the spin clycle. The spin side is considerably smaller than the wash side, so you can only do a few pieces at a time, but it is a powerful little sucker and spins them out better than any conventional washer I have ever used.
The Wash timer is very simple and labeled in minutes. Turn to the time you want, and you’re done. If you want to cancel early, simply turn the knob back to 0.
Wash selector is simple, with three options; Gentle, Normal, and Drain. Gentle cycle turns the pulsator short times and longer pauses between turns. Drain, well that’s what drains the Washer side
Note, the spinner side is always in “drain mode” no matter what setting the wash control is in. Speaking of the spinner, super simple. Turn to how long you want to spin, most things are two minutes or less.
This washer is awesome, works great,I do have to set it on a chair to make it higher so it drains into bathtub ,but that;s not a problem..you can use a bucket to fill it,,,The box it comes in does NOT say washer or have a picture of a washer on it,so good for delivery to an apartment building, where your sneaking it in LOL, I would highly recommend this washer!!Customer reviews
Costway Portable Washing Machine Review Wrap Up
For convenience, affordability, and a good fit in a small apartment, this is a wonderful choice. The costway portable washing machine is lightweight; it can be moved and stored easily, and it cleans clothes better than standard machine. The drawbacks are, for best results only run small loads, it won’t accommodate huge items like king-size comforters or quilts, and it does not have a built-in lint trap collection system.
