    Better than giving money to my landlord

    Bought this to save money on communal laundry machines in my apartment.Pros:-It can squeeze into tight spaces.-Cleans pretty well, for example i use reusable makeup removing cloths and they come out of this machine without makeup stains. Overall no issues with cleanliness or odor.-The built-in lint trap is helpful.-Gentle enough to wash shoes, small stuffed animals, baseball capsCons:-THE DRAIN HOSE IS SUPER FLIMSY. This is NOT a machine you can turn on and then leave and do other things. You have to babysit it or have someone keep an eye on it. I’ve had issues with the drainage hose falling from the sink and spilling water all over the floor if it’s too high up. Or, if its not high enough (like in the bathtub), it will simply keep draining and never fill until the auto-stop kicks in.-Choosing the right cycle setting is kind of confusing, I usually just opt for the preset ones.-The spin function is almost too powerful, my clothes come out really compressed and then they sometimes feel crusty when I hang up to dry.-The wheels to roll it around are kind of bad but luckily its not super heavy so I usually just pick it up if I need to move it into the next room. But I would recommend putting it on a furniture dolly if you are not as able-bodied.Overall, it’s a good investment for someone living solo if you have the right setup to secure it. It fits 5-10 cotton t-shirts depending on your size.Still better than paying for communal laundry but of course I still have to wash my blankets in the big machines.

    No more laundromat!

    Years ago I found out about portable washers but at the time I had a roommate that disagreed on getting one because of our limited space but fast forward and I have my own place now and I purchased this and am so happy with this purchase! I have never in my life had the privilege of having a washer and/or dryer in my home. At first I was a bit distraught as the included attachment didn’t fit on my bathroom faucet (its a weird faucet) I was able to purchase an adapter kit (which still didn’t work with my bathroom faucet) but I found out that the right combo of 3 of the adapters put together fits on my shower hose just right and I’ve been able to do laundry that way, takes a few minutes to set up and I have it drain out into the shower tub which I think is better than the sink cause my tub has a hair/lint catcher already. But I’m fascinated by how this machine cleans my clothes so well. I have had it for a bit over a month now and recently purchased the Panda dryer and although I can’t put all my clothes into one load it still saves me the hassle of lugging my stuff to the laundromat and spending $15-$30 every week. I have been able to wash all my clothes, jackets, throw blankets, bed sheets, large towels, small towels, even a thin comforter and even my bath mats! I use less soap and since its just me I no longer have to add laundry sanitizer which I did previously because of the shared machines at the laundromat, so there’s more savings there! I also was able to purchase the dolly even though I leave the washer in my bathroom next to the tub (because its a rather large bathroom), its nice to be able to move it around when I need to mop underneath or to move it closer to the shower hose and outlet when in use. I keep up with the maintenance of the machine cause I want it to last for a long time so after every use I wipe it down make sure inside of the lid edge is all clean, I unscrew the little filter in the back and drain it and make sure its clean and I clean the inside of the drum lint filter as well as it gets FULL of lint and cat fur. Something else I found really helpful was because the machine is on the dolly it makes it way taller than my sink and tub so I had noticed at first that when I had the drainage tube set up over the tub and draining into the tub it would drain while also filling up and I thought that I got a doozy BUT in order for the drum to fill up you just have to make sure the drainage tube it set where its either higher than the machine or at the same level and not way down below the drum. Once I set it up in the tub that it was higher all was good and the drum was able to fill up properly.I did a lot of research before purchasing the machine like water usage, and that it barely uses any electricity and I watched a ton of YouTube video reviews of the same machine to see how they set it up and worked with it and made me more confident in the purchase since it was a bit of a bigger purchase for me. I did the same with the panda dryer and I’ve been happy with both. If it means not being at a dirty, loud and gross laundromat and I can do laundry in my home no matter how long it takes, I am happy.I would 100% recommend this machine, it arrived within 2 days, set up was easy, doesn’t take much water and uses a minimal amount of electricity and does like a normal washing machine would do just smaller.

    Wonderful. Could have gone with one size smaller

    This washer does fairly large loads. More than big enough for two people. The spin is so good everything air dries in about two hours – you may not need a dryer. If I had it to do again I would have bought the .9 cu ft which is one size smaller.

    Great little beast!

    I’ve had this almost year when my big washer broke. For the money it’s been pretty tough. I try not to overload it and rarely use hot water or bleach in it, but it’s a tough little thing.Bought a wheeled stand for it so I can move it easily.

    Beats going downstairs

    It’s a decent little washer. Comes with everything to hook it to a kitchen or bathroom sink. On the heaviest setting and largest load size you can get through a decently full laundry basket in 2 maybe 3 loads depending on clothing type. Haven’t tried washing bedding in it yet but I’m sure it should be able to handle it. Overall it’s a worthwhile purchase for any apartment dwellers who are tired of gambling with the apartment provided washers and dryers. As well as giving you the freedom to do other things other than watch your laundry.

    Works great

    TL;DR – it works great, but get a regular one if you have the room and don’t plan on moving it.We recently moved to an apartment home that doesn’t have an in-home washer/dryer, I refuse to use the laundry room or a laundromat.We bought the 3.0cuft one. It fits pieces up to our king size comforters. It’s been around 7mo of usage and it still works great. We do a LOT of laundry, almost every day. We have it on our spare bedroom and fill/drain it from the bathroom sink/tub next to it, we did had to get some extension hoses though. At the time of purchase we didn’t know how we were going to set it up, so we decided to buy a “portable” one, but for the price I should’ve bought a regular 4.0cuft washer, which are usually about 2-3” wider/deeper than this one; so not much of a difference. Unfortunately, by the time we finally moved, the return window had ended.It’s a bit noisy on the spin/drain cycle and if it’s not fully level, the drum will hit the inside walls. Make sure your drain hose is secured in whatever area you’re planing to use as it is a bit flimsy. We came to a flooded home twice because it fell off the tub; we fixed it by getting some magnetic hooks and attaching them to the hose.We leave the quick release attachment in the bathroom sink faucet. Some advice, remember to turn the water off before unplugging it, otherwise water will spray everywhere 🤣, I forget doing that like half of the time!It’s a good washer overall. If you have the room and don’t plan on moving it, just get a regular one there’s not much of a difference in size.

    Mighty washer – quiet assassin of dirty clothes

    The media could not be loaded.

     Aside from packaging Styrofoam ending up in the motor bay of the machine), there is really nothing bad can be said about it.After unboxing, I decided to make sure that there’s nothing loose inside the machine – and I’m glad I did. Ton of white Styrofoam pieces inside. Had to remove large pieces by hand, and then just dusted the smaller particles. Reattached the bottom cover and hooked up directly to the cold water line. Glad I had purchased a 90° elbow – anticipated stress on the hose coming from under the sink to the top water intake on the Black and Decker washer. Zero leaks using the elbow, minor dripping without it.Let me tell you that the machine is Extra quiet – I was shocked. And vibration is almost nonexistent. Detergent is added directly into the washer’s bay. Clothes came out smelling fresh, no weird mechanical odor and being squeezed out of most of the water (yes, I’m also impressed with the spin cycle).Completely satisfied with the purchase.P.S. after my parents stopped by for a visit, they’re waiting for their old Haier portable washer to die so they can buy this beast. I am actually planning on getting a second one for my house.Update: 7/11/18:After about 2 weeks of doing 2-3 loads of laundry daily, it still doesn’t leak and we still loving it. I ordered a longer washer hose (8ft) to have the washer permanently connected to a cold water outlet and also got the drip tray, just in case it leaks, but mainly to be able to slide it on our laminate kitchen floor. We have room under the counter top, and we just slide the machine in and out. When we don’t use it, it fits perfectly under the counter top alcove.Update 7/12/18:Jinxed it. Noticed a minor puddle in the drip tray around front left leg of the washer. Emptied it out, removed back panel and noticed droplets of water on the outside of white center drum, pump motor, drain hose, etc. Dried everything out, and ran another wash on gentle, medium load. And watched…Leak was coming from the top of the washer when it starts to fill in for the second time. Right where clear hose disappears into the top of the washer – See video. Not subtracting any stars, want to see how Amazon or Black and Decker handles warranty… Will keep you postedReplacement is on the way. Top notch customer service!!!Update 7/17/18:Excited – replacement arrived. Took new machine out of the box, installed it and packaged the old for return into the same box… Man, I’m not gonna lie, but I’m a bit disappointed. Did a test wash on Rapid – no problem. Did a Gentle run and there was a little puddle by the front left leg of the washer and behind the machine below the black drain plug. Its late now. I’ll do another wash tomorrow and inspect where the leak is coming from. Taking 1 star off for now…Leak is coming from the top, same spot as the previous BnD washer. Is this a manufacturing defect or am I the only one experiencing it? Please, share your experiences. I will do another exchange later and if same bull happens, I’ve an idea how to do the mod to redirect leak right into the washer’s drum. Annoying, yes, but I do like the machine for its effectiveness. Will keep you posted, as usual…Update 7/31/18:Got my 2nd replacement machine. Ran a test wash on rapid, but forgot to switch to a lower wash load, ran it at Load 3 by default. Water started to fill in and just splashed everywhere, even got it on the bottom of the opening lid. So cannot be sure if it leaked or not. Have to wait for it to dry.Update 8/06/2018:As much as I’d like to leave a 5 star review, I have to subtract yet 1 more star. Second replacement is leaking as well. I am assuming first machine that I’ve had for over a month was leaking too, it’s just I didn’t have a tray underneath the washer and couldn’t see the leak.I am not going to return the item thought, because a) I still love it, because it is still an amazing machine – silent, light, washes your items etc, etc. but .. just this annoying leak coming from the top. b) I am using a pistol grip clamp and a small food tray to catch droplets of water, but in no way a new item should be modified in any way right from the start.Update 8/28/2018:Machine STOPPED LEAKING. I don’t know what the deal is here, but I’m not complaining and adding 1 more star. What a roller coaster.Update 9/18/18:Still no leaks and yesterday I have loaded a heavy (with sweat) jiu jitsu gi size A3, both, pants an the jacket…and it fit!

    Surprised wonderful Package of Joy

    I searched and searched different companies, different stores, back and forth looking at more than 100 models. Finally I decided. I was blown away when the box arrived. I thought the washing machine that I truly searched for would be much smaller, just perfect for me to handle, (5’10, 190 pounds). I was shocked. Took it out of the box it is amazing. A diamond in the rough, A true replica of the expensive ones in the stores. I am so happy I made the decision to buy this. Now we are waiting for our friend to put in another wall outlet for our convenience, will let you know later how it washes. I love it already. Thank youMeiWaiTaiNan Burnett.

    All considered, it is an excellent portable washer

    First, when it was delivered to me I had to cut the plastic things off. Then I was trying to manuever the box to see the best way to cut it and where. To my surprise, I only needed to lift the box up, after taking out the styrafome. Then I unpacked it. The hardest step was taking the sink connection apart and finding out how exactly to connect it to the sink. Several Youtube videos helped me with that. Next step was connecting the water hose to the sink with the adaptor attached to the sink. You push down on the round, white thing while pushing up on the part under it. It is not hard to attach but to attach it correctly is challenging because you have to push up and hold the round, white thing down at the same time. It is not really that difficult but it is not so easy either. It finally cooperated. (Now, the more I connect it, the easier it gets.) I placed the water outlet tube in the sink and turned the water on. At this point, if the sink connection is not good, water will spew a little and/or drip. On the other hand, if it is well connected, it is amazing. The water will NOT come out until you turn the washer on, choose your 2 settings and press start. At that moment the washing machine will amazingly let the water flow from the sink. But at this point, watch where the other end of the hose connects to the washing machine. If it is not tight, it will leak. That has happened to me numerous times. Once the machine starts, just let it to its job. It is impressingly quiet while it works. Beware of where and how you leave the water hose where the water comes out. Twice it has slipped out of the sink and got water all over my floor. But you learn by doing and I now push it further down into the sink and observe the water when the machine starts emptying. It normally takes about 30 minutes to complete its wash cycle and spin. I have now used the machine for about 2 weeks and I AM satisfied!! My apt is small to I have to move the machine from the kitchen, over carpeting, the another room. To facilitate this, I bought a Vestil FWD 1824 3r fiberwood dolly with large wheels on Amazon. Mine came already assembled. It has made a big difference when trying to manuver the washing machine. Yes, the machine does have 2 wheels on the back, which are helpful, but with this dolly, moving it is much easier. Make sure to turn the water in your sink OFF before disconnecting the hose. One last comment: water CAN and does flow uphill! The water leaving the machine must go from the bottom of the washer to the top of my sink, which is a couple of feet. How it defies physics I do not know, Maybe it’s some kind of air or water pressure. So, in summary, I am very surprised that the machine can control the water flow in my sink and that water pressure can flow up. I must also say that yesterday for the first time, I cleaned the filter in the tub of the machine. It was rather dirty. Getting it off was easy but getting it back on was difficult only because I had not taken a good look at exactly how the bag with the filter was placed. It took several attempts but I finally got it to snap. Now that I know, the next time will be quite easy. The whole process and everything involved is easy once you get some experience. Like anything else. When you remove the filter at the bottom of the machine, be careful. I think water that did not flow up to the sink collected there, so when I took it off for cleaning, a good but unexpectedly came out. Solution: put a bowl under the black filter before you unscrew it to remove it. So in conclusion, I would definitely recommend this machine. One last word of advise: Read the directions before you start!

    Love it!

    I was initially going to return it because I could not figure out how to install it without water leaking but I got a friend to fix it and it works beautifully. 100% better than using a shared laundry room.

    Good washing machine

    I was able to fit this in my bathroom on one side of my sink. I can still use my sink and was able to hook up the given hose with my bathroom faucet and drain into the bathroom sink. It only works with cold water, but even with that limitation I am getting good results. The clothes come out clean. Also the spin cycle works very well. The clothes come out damp but not that wet. I have just been hanging them up to dry in my closet and leaving the door open so there is some breeze. With shirts, socks, underwear, etc… this works very well. When I washed a pair of jeans, I hung them over a hanger in my closet, and left them drying for 4 days or so. Then i had to reverse the jeans to dry the other side. so it took almost 2 weeks to hang dry in my closet. I have considered also getting a dryer but it is working very well just hanging everything to dry. Putting a fan on the drying clothes does help speed it up. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    1 year review

    After 1 year, I’m still pleased with this washer. The digital control is its worst feature because it’s unnecessarily complex. About 99% of the time, I select normal wash (power on, normal wash, start) The load size selector is meaningless. It doesn’t add more water, just more wash time. Sometimes, I forget to add fabric softener and just need a rinse and spin cycle. Not programed for that. I have to start a new wash cycle and stop it after the first spin.The maximum load size is about the size of a basketball. That’s one complete outfit, 2 bath towels or 1 bath towel and several hand towels. I have to wash my queen sheets one at a time. If you overload the machine, the top of the load doesn’t get wetI would buy it again and recommend it as the best alternative to a $500+ washer that weighs 200 lbs.

    Does a respectable job.

    Replaces broken old Haier portable I had. This B&D does a better job of spinning the water out of the clothes. I was disappointed that the water doesn’t always come up to the top of the clothes even if I set the water at the highest setting – L3. However, it seems like all the clothes get washed anyway. I just leave the washer in the same spot all the time so moving it around is not a problem for me. The faucet attachment it came with leaked, but Amazon had Danco Dishwasher Faucet Adapter | Dishwasher Snap Adapter Connection | 15/16-27Male or 55/64-27Female | Chrome (36108E) that worked. The hose was too short, but Amazon had Rubber Washing Machine Hoses (10 Foot – Black) by Kelaro. Yes, I needed to make adjustments and pay a little more, but it’s doing the job to my satisfaction.

    Life Saver for Renters!

    I absolutely LOVE this machine! I’ll spare you the backstory and just say that I faced a recent situation where the laundry room in my apt bldg was closed for awhile. Post-Covid I have no desire to go to a laundromat so I decided to buy this machine – it has saved me so much time, money and sanity. Here’s the lowdown:CAPACITY: I’m a single person, but I do a LOT of laundry (work clothes, regular clothes, pj’s – with sheets, towels, and blankets occasionally thrown in) so I decided to go with a larger machine. I’m a big girl, and I can fit at least 9 thick pairs of pants per load. If you’re smaller or have kids, you can fit more. Depending on the thickness, I can fit a whole queen sized sheet set. I maybe do a 1/2 load more than what I did in a regular wash machine.SIZE: This is not a “portable” machine in terms of size – it’s almost the size of a regular wash machine. If you don’t have a washer/dryer hookup and have to move this back and forth to a water source, a dolly is a must. I just leave it on the dolly and scoot it around when necessary. I’m in a larger one bedroom apartment, with an open living/dining area – so I have the space to leave it against the wall, cover it with a pretty tablecloth, and not have it in the way. If you live in a studio, you may want to look at a smaller version (.75 or 1 cubic ft).EASE OF USE: The trickiest part is the initial hose connection. I was very lucky and through some trial and error, I was able to fit the adapter that came with the machine to my kitchen faucet. I’m the least handy person ever, so I can’t give advice. However I was able to get some helpful info from the reviews here, and from videos and websites online. Once you get the hang of it, you connect the hose to the faucet, put the drain hose in the sink (or tub), plug it in, choose your settings and you’re good to go.NOISE: For the most part, it’s not bad. However it does get pretty noisy during the spin cycle. Thankfully , it’s pretty brief so it’s not a deal breaker.TIPS/TRICKS: A few things: 1) prevent leaks, always take a moment to check your hose connection (both where the hose connects to the faucet, and where it connects to the machine) and to make sure it’s tightly screwed on. 2) the drain hose is very light and can easily become dislodged – use a piece of string, zip tie or twist tie to anchor it to the sink. 3) For piece of mind, purchase a leak sensor. I was able to buy this one off Amazon for under $20.

    It is very big

    I got the Black & Decker 3.0 portable washing machine and so far since I got it I have done 6 loads and I have no complaints about the way that it washes. I am saving up for the dryer next so that I don’t have to dry my clothes on a drying rack but I just put the rack in front of my pellet stove and they are dry in no time. I must warn you though this machine is very big and I would say about the size of a full size reg washing machine. It is tight in my bathroom where I am using it but it is just me and I am OK with that but just wanted to let you know so you can really do the measuring before you buy it. I am glad that this machine will be able to wash my comforter, I put my queen size sheets and pillow cases and 2 large bath towel and 1 small bath towel and 4 wash clothes and it washed them without any trouble. Also I would highly recommend getting the dolly for it because it is 99 lbs so you will need that if you are planning on moving it around.

    Great washer.

    I got the washer yesterday. And washed 3 loads. It cleans wonderfully. And the spin cycle does a really great job.The only problem with it is the wheels. Are so small. You better keep it on a hard floor. This will NOT roll across even cheapo thin thin apt carpet.Outside of that. Its wonderful. I wasted my money on one of those 100 dollar plastic ones. And it broke from just sitting for some months. Really bad mistake. Buy a good product the first time.This one for what it costs, with a warranty for 2-3 years. Is IMMENSELY better than a cheaper machine. Dont make my mistake. Get something that isnt dollar store level quality.

    B&D portable washer

    Om my! What a game changer! Wanted something closer to a standard washer in terms of it doing it all on own and this single well washer does just that! Ensure that you clean the internal lint catcher frequently (if you dont have pets and/or long hair probably get away with once a month or so). Can do a full set of winter clothes (jeans, tshirt, hoodie, all under-clothes) all at one time, summer time can probably go 2-4 days depending on size! Was able to also do a queen sheet with pillow cases at once! Hang on shower rod over night and everything is dry by morning!

    I love my little machine

    I purchased this since I live in a small apartment with no washer or dryer and I’ve been using it for maybe 4 months and It works amazing. It holds a decent amount of clothes for at least me and my son we do 2 loads maybe 3 a week not bad and it’s better than going to the laundry place. I hang the stuff in a small rack in the bathroom and everything is dried if not by the night usually by the next morning. It does the job it’s supposed to. I go now once a month to the laundromat just to wash my big blankets. I make sure I have extra so I can change my blankets often and every 4-5 weeks I take them and problem solved. I saved myself weekly or biweekly trips to the laundromat and I get things clean in the comfort of my apartment.

    Overall, a great washing machine.

    I purchased this to replace a 17 year old Kenmore portable washer that was finally wearing out.I’m very pleased with the increased capacity and functions and overall performance.However, I can’t consider this to be portable; it’s far too heavy to move from spot to spot. In addition, the adapter doesn’t fit my kitchen faucet, although the faucet itself is a standard one.My son ended up making a trip to Lowe’s for plastic tubing and several clamps. The tubing was attached to the drain hose and I use a metal clamp to attach it to the outside of the faucet. We’ve attached the old Kenmore hose to the intake hose to fill the machine.As I said, the washer is too heavy to move to the sink, so I’m using it this way.

    Where do I begin…

    I bought this after my basement washing machine quit draining. I was resorting to the laundromat, but something about that place gives me the heebie jeebies. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a new washer and didn’t want to buy a lemon if I went with a used one. So after looking at a ton of options online, I finally went with this one based off of the reviews and the brand name. I’m very glad I did. It’s light enough that I can move it to my bathroom if I need to get it out of sight. It’s small enough that it fits in my tiny bathroom also. I use it in my kitchen though because my sink is deeper in the oven. I really wish I could put it under my kitchen counter, but I don’t have the skill to figure that one out. Sometimes it starts to smell but that’s usually because I haven’t done a load for a while. I use the L2 cycle, which is exactly 30 minutes long, and can fit approximately half a normal washing machine size load in it at a time. Which works for me right. I wash undies separately and don’t feel like I’m wasting energy or time anymore like I did when I washed them in the full size washer. The hookup was easy peasy too. You can theoretically buy a hose extender and a water line extender if you need to. The only only only thing that bugs me about this is how short the electric cord is. It’s maybe 4 feet? It would be ideal if it were closer to 10, because the instructions specifically say not to use it with an extension cord or surge protector. It wants it to be grounded in the wall, I guess? Idk, I’m not an electrician, but I do know that I can’t use this at the same time as my dishwasher, fridge, or microwave or I’ll flip a breaker if I’m using all 4. But I do use it with my fridge, microwave, toaster, and stove and I’ve never had an issue with my breaker. Also it’s pretty and sleek in appearance. Light weight enough to easily move it. And versatile enough to wash towels, sheets, clothes, and a lighter comforter in it (comforter was a 2 step process though – that was a little tricky, tbh, lol, but I did it!)

    1 year later, absolutely zero regrets

    I researched a lot before buying this washer last year. I think I watched every YouTube video and read every review out there for this and a dozen other washers before finally selecting this one. It has been 1 full year, and this probably remains the number one most important and non-regretful purchase I’ve ever made, in my whole life!It’s held up extremely well for a year of almost weekly use, I have no technical problems to report. I find it quieter than my dishwasher, and it really does get my clothes fully clean (and very dry, where they only need to hang for a couple of hours to finish drying). I wash all my clothes, towels, and even Queen-sized sheets and blankets. If I’m doing bedding I have to do several loads (like one sheet and a pillowcase at a time), but it’s still so much easier and less time consuming than trying to use my shared building laundry. Plus, no more quarters, no more stinky shared machines, no more people stealing my machines! I also find I use less detergent overall since this machine is so efficient, even if I’m doing more overall loads.I also find my clothes are holding up much nicer, because I’m hang-drying everything and washing in cold water. I like that it has the gentle cycle for especially delicate things.Some user tips:I personally would recommend liquid detergent over pods. Pods are portioned for full loads, so it’s a little wasteful to pay for a full load of detergent when it’s really only half a load at a time. With liquid detergent you can choose exactly how much to use at a time, and know that you don’t need as much as if you were running a big full machine.It is a little cumbersome to move—it only has two wheels on one side, so you have to tip it far in one direction to roll. In the beginning I rolled it back and forth to the sink every time between washes, but now I just leave it permanently next to the sink since I use it almost every week. If I need to move it over a couple feet I just lift it to move—I have a really bad back, but I’m able to lift it a couple inches to move a short distance no problem.I also recommend always double-checking that the tubes are fully secure on both the faucet and where they connect to the washer! I’ve made the mistake of not fully securing them and then flooding my floor… mostly my error. I do have to tape down the drainage tube to the sink (see picture) or it can fall off. When it’s done washing, I remove the drainage tube and pump out remaining water into a bowl on the floor so it doesn’t get musty. A little bit of work, but takes no more than 1 minute.Again, just tips for using, not at all deterrants to buying! I truly recommend this product so much, to anyone in any living situation. My neighbors even ask to come over all the time and use my machine instead of the building machines—it really is amazing AND worth it!

    Very pleased

    I have had this washer for just over 2 months now and I am well pleased with it. I did my research on different washing machines (that can be used without hookups) beforehand and decided on this one in part because of the warranty and the brand. It works well, simply no issues there. The way it washes seems a little strange, as it will swish the clothes around for maybe 1-2 min, then stop for 1-2 min. It still washes my clothes well. It is smaller than a typical washing machine of course and can’t hold as many clothes. The spin cycle gets them dry enough that when I leave them on a drying rack indoors, they dry usually in about 24 hrs.It is not that loud, although that wouldn’t really be an issue. You can hear the water swish in the machine, you can hear the sink when its filling with water, you can hear water rushing out when it drains, and you can hear the motor working to make the clothes move, although I’d say that’s the same noise level as the water swishing as the clothes move.I live in a pretty small apartment with no hookups and wanted to save money from not going to the laundromat and I wanted the comfort of doing laundry in my own home. I fully recommend this machine. I have already saved more money than I would have spent at the laundromat. My setup has my washer in the bathroom with the inlet hose connected to the sink and the drain hose also draining into the same sink. I have them connected with a rubber band so the drain hose stays in place. Figuring out how to attach the inlet hose to a sink took a little while, but I had to take the water aerator off the bathroom sink and then it was able to attach with the attachment it came with. There are issues people have mentioned that I would like to address.Someone said the spin cycle on normal is set to 55 min and it seems to be a mistake in the programming. Mine initially said this too, but after my first use, it now says 5 or 9 min, depending on the cycle.Other people have mentioned that the washer will start draining water out of the drain hose before the water level is filled up enough, or if you use a bucket. I believe the issue there is the drain hose is not elevated high enough. It seems kind of weird, but if the drain hose is only raised high enough to drain into the bathtub for example, I had the same issue where the water would start draining before it filled to halfway (or if I added more from a bucket). Then, I raised my drain hose higher to drain into the bathroom sink, which is just about the same height as the washer, and now it fills almost to the brim and doesn’t drain water prematurely. The manual says the drain hose needs to be elevated to about 34 inches high for this reason I’m sure.In case people don’t read the manual or notice, there is a little filter on the inside wall of the washer which needs to be cleaned about every 10 washes or once a week or something like that. Its a little net that fills with lint and is very easy to clean.

    Initial Review Before Actual Use! (Will Update Soon!)

    I hesitated for weeks before ordering this washing machine from Amazon. I don’t mind going through the return process for something that is easy to package and drop off at my local UPS. The thought of having to return this washer for whatever reason gave me a mini panic attack. My biggest concern was it arriving with dents. I am happy to report that this was not the case. Not even one minor scratch or dent. This was not due to the packaging, which does not provide enough protection. Arriving dent-free has more to do with how it’s handled during delivery. I got lucky there. This washing machine is going in my tiny house on wheels (when the build is finished) but I wanted to give it a try before my return window closed. So I hooked it up to my kitchen faucet. I didn’t need to buy anything for this. The included attachment fit. Whether this is the case for you will depend on the type of faucet you have. Mine is an inexpensive but relatively new faucet. I wasn’t expecting to have an issue. I didn’t use any tools. I just hand-tightened the attachment to my sink, screwed the hose to the attachment then the other end to the “cold” inlet on the back of the washer. Turned on the cold side of my faucet and did the test run (rinse, drain) that is suggested in the owner’s manual. It is suggested to use a wrench (a quarter of a turn) after hand-tightening everything but I didn’t bother. I was planning to stand next to the machine the entire time to watch for leaks. Another happy report — No leaks! (I’ll use the wrench when I install the machine properly in my new tiny house). After the test cycle, I put in a medium size load with some detergent. We will see how that goes. I value reviews of products more when the reviewer has actually used the product for an extended period of time. I’ll update this review after a couple of months of consistent use.Noise – This was a concern for me since the machine will be in a tiny house. The machine makes a variety of noises. You can hear it vibrating during the spin cycle. You can hear the water sloshing back and forth during the wash and rinse cycles. During these two cycles, you also hear the sound of the drum rotating. You can hear the water when it runs into the machine and when it drains out. I would not want to have a conversation with someone while sitting next to this machine in operation but none of the sounds it makes are offensive. It’s a washing machine. It sounds like a washing machine. It will be at one end of my tiny house (bathroom). With the door closed, I don’t expect to hear much, and certainly not enough sound to be bothersome.Appearance – I like the clean and simple design. The buttons are easy to push and make it simple to select a variety of different cycles. The door has the “soft close” feature which is unnecessary but a nice, added feature. I admit that this feature did influence my decision to purchase this model. (It’s the little things :).Portability – The machine has 2 wheels in the back. When this is sitting flat on the floor, you won’t be able to roll it anywhere. It sits solid and doesn’t move without effort. I needed to move it off a rug in my kitchen before I did the test run so I just sort of shimmied it back and forth until it was off the rug. If you need to move it farther than a few feet, you stand behind the machine, reach around the sides until you find the hand gripes located close to the front of the machine, and then tilt the machine back towards you. You keep tilting it back until you feel the wheels engage (the machine will begin to move so you’ll know). At this point, you can very easily move it. I suffer from chronic pain from degenerated discs and I had no issues wheeling this machine from my living room to my kitchen.

    I was afraid to buy this but I made the right choice.

    One, it takes just the right amount of space. I live in a small one bedroom, about 600 Sq ft and it fits behind my bathroom door, at around 17 x 17 inches of bottom space and 30 inches tall to 40 inches with the lid open.I purchased a small dolly to help move it. Since the washer is difficult to maneuver just on its own. It had two small wheels but you have to tilt it and that is not easy in small spaces. I purchased the “Trimate KD Furniture Dolly, Square 16 x 16”. Its very solid plastic, has a modern pop look and putting it together was extremely easy. It does not come with locking wheels, so if you need that, it might be a deal breaker. But I’ve done fine without the locks.The hook up to water has been slightly challenging. It fits my kitchen sink with the adapter it came with. The male fitting fits a female fitting of 3/4” inches. I have a handheld shower head and if I remove it, I can attach the hose with a “Garden Hose Adapter 3/4 GHT Male x 1/2 NPT Male Connector”. You can also fill it up manually, but this requires constant supervision, and it needs to be done at wash, at rinses. The machine will stop and will only continue if you fill it with water.The issues: The reason why the machine leaks has all to do with the water supply hose and the drain hose. You need to make sure that the water hose is tight at both ends to avoid spilling. When you turn on the tap, it’s best to do so at a small to medium opening, not the whole way because that adds too much pressure. I only turn the tap on when I know it needs it. Once you start using it, you’ll hear a hum when it’s trying to receive water. You can leave the tap on if you want but only at low pressure. It makes very low noises. It’s discreet and I’ve heard dishwasher make more sounds.The drain issue: when draining, it’s best to bring the hose up to level with the sink or same height as the machine. That avoids the drain spilling from the bottom. And the drain hose needs to be pointing a wide and deep enough basin. So a kitchen sink, a bathroom tub is okay. A bathroom sink? Maybe not, because they can be shallow. And too much water leaving the machine all at once creates a spill.Water: it’s best when using cold water but you can use warm, as long as it’s not too hot. It uses as much as the settings you choose. It has five wash settings and each of them are customizable for load size, rinse cycles and spins. More rinses means more water, higher loads means more water, longer washes, more water. You choose depending on your needs.I’ve found that using fabric softener is sorta useless because the detergent is scented and the effect is lost by the time clothes are rinsed. It’s best to use detergent with softener. And if you’re using pods, you might need to dissolve them ahead of time. I dissolve my liquid detergent in a small bucket and add it to the wash. Traditional soaps are better than eco ones because enzymes are less effective in cold water, but you can do research on your own brand.I’ve been able to wash one weeks worth of clothes in one load. I’m a 5’3 woman who wears one set of clothes. It can also wash one queen size duvet cover with pillowcases and a bath sheet. Or a fitted sheet and a blanket. I was also able to wash a twin comforter very well. It’s important to clean the lint trapper after each use, since it traps hairs and loose fabric. I leave the machine open for a few hours after use to avoid trapping moisture in the drum. Since it leads to smells.I would not recommend this to wash small pillows or shoes because the impeller motion and spin destabilizes the machine and it goes off. If you have heavy shed pets, this is also not ideal unless you de-shed your clothes because the lint trapper is too small and it wouldn’t wash well. I’ve been able to do loads all the way to the top but with light items. Not jeans or anything heavier. Those need more space and more water.There’s really a big learning curve with this machine. It becomes yours because there’s no other choice. I’m happy I bought it because it’s cute and it saves me 10$ a week. I can air dry all my clothes easy because the spin leaves them damp, not wet. I hope it lasts and that the $216 I spent (I bought used, good, returned) are worth it.

    Works great, hookup was easy, adaptors were perfect

    I LOVE this washer! My machine arrived in perfect condition. It was very easy to set up, came with everything including the faucet adaptor for the quick connection water hose. You definitely need a washing machine dolly if you plan to move it from it’s storage location to the sink- the 2 wheels under the machine are not adequate for rolling/maneuvering the machine. Once on the dolly, the machine is very stable and stays in place during the entire washing process, even during long spin cycles. It’s very quiet, I don’t think neighbors would be able to hear it, even downstairs neighbors. My clothes come out just as clean as a regular washing machine even using only cold water. I suggest using a wire mesh strainer over your sink drain to catch the lint, quite a lot of large lint pieces come out the drain hose and could clog pipes.This 3.0 cubic ft machine is quite large, it fits in my coat closet for storage. It’s too big for my small bathroom but fits fine in the kitchen. The tub is large enough to wash a good-sized load of clothing, towels or bed linens. I can fit a “summer weight” down alternative queen comforter in there but a thicker comforter would not fit. I specifically bought this size machine so I would be able to wash my Queen bedding, I solved the thick comforter problem by switching to 2 “summer weight” comforters inside my queen duvet cover for winter (you still get all the warmth and fluffy thickness) so each comforter can be washed separately. Heavy faux fur throw blankets and bathroom rugs fit fine and wash beautifully.You only need a very small amount of detergent, 2 TBSP or 1 pod is plenty. If I have heavily soiled items, I soak them in very hot water with some oxy clean and detergent in the sink for a few hours then throw them straight into the washer, no need to wring them out. I haven’t figured out any way to use the soak feature with hot water yet. This machine uses barely any electricity and a small amount of water (about the same amount of water as a shower) The wash cycles are quite long but I don’t really mind. The small inconveniences drastically outweigh the hassle of taking clothing to a laundromat or having to use a community laundry room.I’m very happy with this machine. If you’re on fence about it, just GET IT. It will save you money and time.

    One Year Review: A Great Little Machine! (0.9 Cu. Ft. Model)

    I live in an apartment building with an on-site laundromat. As anyone who’s had to use shared laundry facilities knows, it can be a real hassle having to schlep your laundry to the laundry room only to find that all of the machines are in use and/or half are out of service. Not to mention the added expense of paying $2+ per load, per machine. It adds up.This little washer has been a godsend. I can conveniently do my laundry in my own home and on my own schedule. No more waiting on people who aren’t paying attention to their machine cycles or having to check back in to see if any machines have been freed up. And the added privacy of not having to flash my skivvies in front of people while loading/unloading machines is nice, too.Anyway, regarding everyday use:As per my review title, it’s great! Works just like a regular full-size washer except with maybe 1/3 the capacity (guesstimate). One full hamper’s worth of laundry can be split up into 2 – 3 loads, depending on what/how much you’re throwing in there. BTW, I don’t recommend trying to stuff as much laundry as you can into the tub. Being a pulsator-type washer, overfilling it won’t make for efficient washing. Also, it doesn’t really fit bulky bedding items like duvets, comforters, and heavy quilts. Unfortunately, I still rely on my apartment building’s laundry facilities for those. However, it can handle lightweight bedding items like fitted sheets, flat sheets, and pillowcases/shams just fine.Operation is simple; it only has five wash modes to choose from, three load size options, and limited cycle customization options. Nothing fancy, just the basics needed to get your laundry clean. Check out the product photos that show the control panel to give yourself a better idea. Wash cycles can be as short as 19 minutes, to as long as 68 minutes depending on what you select.The spin cycle does an excellent job of removing excess water. It spins up surprisingly fast for such a compact machine and leaves laundry as damp as any regular full-size washer.Next to the water inlet is a warning label that states not to connect the hose directly to a hot water tap. I do, however, regularly use WARM water and haven’t noticed any adverse effect on the machine.The lint trap inside the wash drum does a good job of capturing lint, hair, and even shredded paper like forgotten receipts or potentially life-changing lottery tickets. However, if you’re concerned that any stray lint might clog up your plumbing, you can always get one of those lint traps that attach to the end of the drain hose.A few tips:I recommend getting a small dolly if you need the washer to be mobile for easier storage. Unfortunately, the built-in wheels the machine has don’t really make for easy maneuvering. Also, make sure the dolly has locking casters to keep the washer from shimmying away from where you parked it during the spin cycle.This washer can be pretty noisy during agitate cycles and definitely during the spin cycles. If you’re able to set it up in a room with a door (like a bathroom), do so to spare yourself from the noise.I attached the included snap coupling adapter to the faucet on my bathroom sink. I also stuck a faucet aerator inside the adapter to keep water from coming out in a splashing torrent when I want to wash my hands or brush my teeth. I used a 2.2gpm laminar flow aerator since the usual 1.5 makes the washer take a long time to fill with water.Lastly, don’t go nuts with detergent. As with any washer, frivolously pouring detergent with reckless abandon can gunk up the insides of the machine and cause premature wear on the motor and/or pump AND cause the washer to develop a bad smell. For a machine this size, maybe a tablespoon of detergent – MAX – will do.

    Amazing washer for small house! Do not listen to the bad reviews.

    This is an honest review from a normal, reasonably intelligent individual.First things first, the majority of the bad reviews of this product are from people who clearly lack the intelligence to read a basic instruction manual. Let me debunk a few of the common things I saw in the bad reviews prior to purchasing.1. Yes there is ONE cycle out of about 36 different cycle options that is 2 hours long. If you take less than 2 minutes to read the basic instructions provided, it points out exactly why this specific cycle is so long. It is an eco mode that thoroughly spins your clothes in order to make the drying time significantly less, saving energy and money. If you don’t want to use the eco mode, just select a different cycle setting, it’s incredibly easy to avoid. Most of the cycles are between 30 and 50 minutes like a normal washer.2. Some reviewers have posted pictures of their clothes all knotted up claiming the spin cycle is too strong. If you look at these pictures you can clearly tell they have completely overloaded the washer. You can only fill it to a maximum of 3/4 full, otherwise you might encounter issues like this and leaking. Once again, all it takes is maybe 2 minutes to read the provided instructions to avoid this. I have washed about 10 loads of laundry so far, including 2 very heavy loads, and have not experienced anything like this. I will update my review if this happens to any of my laundry, but so far every load has been completely normal.3. Several reviews state it doesn’t connect to a standard faucet and/or doesn’t come with the necessary parts to connect to a standard faucet. YES, IT ABSOLUTELY DOES. It comes with everything needed and easily connects to a kitchen faucet. If you’re not aware of this, yes you have to unscrew the nozzle on the faucet in order to connect the new nozzle that connects to the hose from the washer. It’s incredibly simple and easy.4. Most of the bad reviews are because of damage in shipping. If you’re trying to save a few dollars by ordering from a third party seller, don’t. Just buy directly from Amazon and they will replace quickly if any damage occurs during shipping. Luckily mine arrived in perfect condition and the shipping box was incredibly easy to disassemble.Ok on to my reviewMy wife and I live in a very small house in southern California. It does not have washer and dryer hookups. Prior to purchasing this washer we had the smaller (I believe) .7 cubic foot model. It leaked from the moment we got it, so much so we had to put a towel under it anytime we wanted to use it. It was great, but it could only handle about 1/4 of a normal washer load so it would take hours to do laundry. It had other issues as well and eventually after about 4 years of use, the spin cycle stopped working. It smelled like a burning motor so we got rid of it and ordered the larger 1.7 cubic foot model. This washer is incredible. We absolutely love it. It handles much larger loads and is exponentially quieter. It has so many cycle options. The biggest benefit for us, knowing we will probably be moving into a larger place with standard washer and dryer hookups, is the fact it can be connected to either a standard faucet or normal washer and dryer hookups. It came with everything needed to hook it up to a standard faucet. The leg levelers on the bottom are great and very sturdy. It is such an amazing value for the price. If you’re looking at other models, just go for it, it’s absolutely worth it.

    It is overall excellent for apartment

    I bought my 2 Cu ft Washer about 4 months ago.Pros:-it cleans clothes pretty well, gets most of the dirt and oil off of my clothes, comparable to a regular washer in that ability.-Small, fits in a nice 2’x2’ corner-Uses less than 10 gallons of water per tub fill on large load if you’re worried about the “water filled Furniture” clause in your apartment’s lease.- easy to set up, had to get an adapter for my bathroom sink and buy a slightly longer hose to reach it.- it does not make a lot of noise, atleast my neighbors haven’t complained, but I only run it between 7am-9pm just for good measure.- It can wash a Queen Size Comforter.- it can wash 3 large hoodies at a time with no balance issues .- it can wash 2 pairs of 34×30 denim jeans, I tried 3 once but it started shaking real bad from getting unbalanced. Didn’t get any warning about it being unbalanced though.- for regular Tshirts, Underwear, socks, towels, etc go ahead and fill up the tub, it won’t have an issue.Cons:-It is definitely rough on clothes, the delicate cycle isn’t delicate. I’ve noticed some excess wear and tear on my clothes since I’ve started using it. Nothing has been ripped to shreds yet, but if your clothes are really delicate i’d recommend hand washing instead of using this.- when using Hot water and trying to fill it up, it will not fill up all the way without encouragement. I have to keep pressing the start/stop button to get it to keep filling up to the appropriate level. On a large load it’s about 3 to 4 times. I only have it hooked up to the left hose inlet (the cold side that is supposed to be able to handle hot and cold if you have a single faucet). Kind of annoying but not a big deal, lot less annoying than going to the laundromat.- The lint trap on the side of the tub does not like to stay in place. It is made of plastic and the hook tab that holds it in place gets deformed after a couple cleanings. Pretty easy to fix though, just bend the hook tab back in place(carefully the plastic is more flexible than stiff but definitely a point of failure in the future). Have to do it every 2-4 lint trap cleanings. It not staying in place doesn’t seem to effect the ability or the discharge of the washer.Closing remarks:All in all, good washer. I’m very happy i bought it and besides the extra wear and tear on clothing and some minor annoyances as well as my paranoia of it leaking water (has had no leaks thus far) I absolutely love it. Very convenient, will definitely be saving some money. I also bought the sister 3.5 Cu Ft Black and Decker dryer and the stackable stand Black and Decker makes for it. The Dryer is absolutely amazing, 5 stars no complaints whatsoever, for the Queen comforter and pillows you’ll have to run 2 or 3 times but that’s to be expected. The stand seems a little iffy, not very sturdy but it hasn’t collapsed in the 4 months I’ve been using it so it’s alright.

    Clean clothes were never so easy for apt dwellers. (2.0 Cu. Ft. model)

    I do not like having to waiting for someone else to finish their wash, spending 5-6 minutes cleaning the washing machine before I use it, , or making plans to go to the laundromat when it’s broken. I do like a clean machine that’s always available.Putting it on a dolly with locking wheels is NOT an option. To maneuver it using the handholds and two small wheels at the back you have to tilt it back to engage the wheels. It weighs 80 lbs and I was leery of tilting it a bit too much and dropping it or wrenching my back (I’m 72, younger ppl may not have that worry). It also (IMO) doesn’t turn that easily. But once it was a dolly it glides though a small apt with ease.Hooking it up to the sink is fast and easy, just a minute or two.While it was running I went out into the hall and could not hear it during any of the cycles and In the apt I can hear the TV clearly (at normal volume) even during the rinse cycle.Even with a 2.0 Cu.Ft. tub it’s still smaller than standard machines. For me there was a learning curve on what is a medium load vs large load. Clothes were still clean, just a little tangled and not as spun dry as could be.I strongly recommend following the directions to level the machine before use. It has two leveling feet in front to make this fairly easy. So be sure to level it so the tub is upright when it goes into the spun cycle.To be honest, I do not think it will stand up well to rough handling and abuse. But if you take care of it I believe it will last for years. Level it. Don’t overload it (directions say to not fill the tub more than 3/4 full). Be gentle when removing and cleaning the plastic lint trap in the tub. Remember to clean the pump filter in the back of the machine every month. Just do the maintenance any type of machine needs.

    Better than expected for a portable machine

    This Black+Decker 3.0 cu. ft. clothes washer was programmed better than I expected for a portable machine. After using it for nearly a year, I found that there were two unexpected features that help it do a better job. First, if the clothes are out of balance when it starts to spin after the water drained out (and makes a clunk-clunk noise) it will immediately stop and fill with water. It’ll then agitate the clothes some more in an attempt to rebalance the clothes. This adds about 15 minutes to the cycle and seems to work each time I saw this happen. To prevent this extra step, I try to load the clothes evenly so it’s balanced in the first place but sometimes it can’t be helped.The second feature is being able to increase the amount of water for the rinse cycle. If you start at the medium level of water to wash, you can increase it to large for the rinse cycle. You just have to be there to press the pause button when it starts filling with water. After resetting the water level, press the same button to resume the cycle.While I would have preferred to get a larger, “normal” size machine to replace my 1970s standard size machine, this portable one is what I could get to fit through the basement door of my old house. At 3.0 cu. ft., it’s nearly the same size as my old washer. This also has an impeller, rather than an agitator, but it seems to do a good job.All-in-all this is a pretty good machine for not too much coin. Hopefully it lasts for many years.

    Big load in a “small packaage”

    For the last year and a half I’ve had one of the small portable washer that have the tub on the left and a small spin bin on the right. While it was great for small loads, it was not good for doing larger items like blankets or a bed comforter. I was looking for 3 cu. ft. portable washers for a long time and most of them have the same layout (controls).SIZE CAPACITY: When I saw the Black+Decker 26.5 lb washer, I wasn’t sure how that translated into cubic feet so I went to the B+D website and it is listed as a 3.0 cu ft washer for the BPWM30W model.SOUND LEVEL: I’ve done large, medium, and small loads. The washer is definitely quieter when doing a small load and the shaking while spinning is not significant. When doing medium or large loads, the noise level is louder when spinning, but nothing that exceeds what I would hear with a regular sized washing machine.HOSES & QUICK CONNECT: The machine comes with 4 foot rubber hoses so while waiting for this to be delivered, I purchased some stainless steel hoses with an elbow. My thinking was that the stainless steel hose would be better to withstand the pressure of the water while it was in “off” mode (the faucet stays turned on, but the water is automatically stopped from going into the machine when it’s done filling). DON’T MAKE THE MISTAKE I MADE.While the stainless steel hoses are fine, the end with the threads doesn’t work properly with the quick connect that comes the washer. The quick connect part to which you tighten the hose is not round, it’s hexagon shaped. So there was a noticeable leak where the stainless steel hose and quick connect met. That leak then travel along the hose down onto my floor.Since I changed to using the washer at my kitchen sink, I also used the original 4ft. hoses that came with the machine and it works perfectly with the odd hexagon shaped end of the quick connect — absolutely not leaks.MOBILITY: I’ve read many reviews for 2.0 and 3.0 cu. ft portable washers, and something they have in comment is that the wheel that come on them are ridiculous small. Not only that, you have to tip the machine in order to use the two wheel.Rather than dealing with that silliness, I bought a washer dolly with 4 locking wheel and set the machine on top of that. The feet of the washer feet perfectly on the corners of the roller without having to expand the size of the dolly. An advantage of placing the washer on a dolly is the ground clearance. When it comes tie to clean the drain pump on the bottom of the back, there is enough room to place a bowl to catch the water. If the you leave the machine directly on the floor, then the water that comes out of the drain pump will be leak onto the floor unless you place a towel there.OVERALL: I’m very happy with this washer it’s capacity. It may be portable, but it can handle washing a queen-sized blanket and/or comforter (NOT feathered though — I only take those to the dry cleaner).

    Reliable portable washer

    It’s almost 2 years since I purchased this product and all I can say is it’s worth buying. I live in an apartment and we are on the 2nd floor. It’s a hassle dragging our clothes to our apartment’s wash room. It’s easy to install. The instructions on how to use the machine is pretty easy. The product is very reliable and I have no complaints since I started using it.

    This machine is very good, but the settings are very confusing. I did return it, as it is hard to move. The wheels are useless! It just couldn’t be moves by rolling it on a carpet or pergo flooring. To pick it up was ridiculous! One handle is on one side in the front and the other is in the back on the other side. It is so awkward to lift that way! For disabled people its impossible. There is NO convenience at all. Its shameful because it works well. The hoses are too short too. They also need to make the attachment for the sink to be able to release water when it’s hooked up. I had one like this, so you could still rinse things if needed.

    Worth it!

    It’s easy to setup and use. The main issue you might run into is how to get the nozzle that drains water to stay in place in the sink you hook it onto. If you are renting it saves money and time. The rinse cycle is powerful and clothes come out clean.

    OMG, I LOVE this thing!

    Moving into a small apt, I found myself in need of a laundromat for the first time in over 20 years. I hated it… and over the next few years, I hated it even more. I hated it so much that I finally sat down and researched the possibility of getting laundry done in this small apartment without laundry hook ups.I looked at those plastic, mostly manual devices and thought they had promise. But the more I researched, the more I realized that the high-end machines seemed pretty close to the real thing and I just might make them work here.I actually move this thing through my apt to the bathroom where hooking up the water and exhaust is easiest. That led to the one single negative on this unit that I’ve found in the few months of owning it. The pair of wheels on this thing are not adequate for rolling over thick carpet. The unit needs to be at a 45º angle before the wheels engage – that might work on a hard surface, but not here with carpet and tight corners to get aroundI bought the Nefish Furniture Dolly that is PERFECT – solid as a rock. I can move it vertically and lock it in place while running a load so the spin (which is extremely effective) doesn’t send the machine wandering.The included sink adapter worked perfectly on both the bathroom and kitchen sinks. Doesn’t leak a drop. The exhaust hose is well-designed to go over a tub wall and stay in place. I haven’t had the hose move on its own causing a flood – that’s the #1 issue with this whole setup.So, so happy I bought this thing. I decided to go high end and haven’t regretted it. I think this was money well-spent.for scale – the table to the left is 24″ tall – this thing is almost as big and a regular unit.

    I like everything about it. I do have a question. I want to order another filter. The one that’s inside the washer the little filter bag. A just in case I need it thing. I’ve looked on Amazon & Black & Decker website & can’t find one. Any ideas? Thanks

    Works perfectly

    No complaints. It drains into the sink well, as long as you keep the sink clear, and you can control the heat with the sink controls. It does quite a bit of clothing but be sure not to overload it, it’s still a small washing machine, don’t expect it to do more than what it’s made for.

    So far, so good!

    I wanted to upload a video of me, unpackaging the washer machine. I can say the delivery was done well & I had no dents and I am pleased with Amazon delivery services. To be honest, this washing machine is basically a starter kit, I kind of wish I got the bigger one, but I am still pleased with it. When looking at the reviews I just wanted to honestly know how many items can fit in it since it was the smaller version of the Black & decker machine. I work at a hospital and of course we wear scrubs, so washing is very vital to me because I have to wash my scrubs very often. I am 5’9, and my scrubs are a size large top and bottom. I was able to fit in 4 scrub jogger pants, 3 scrub tops, and two scrub jackets with 1 undershirt & 3 underwear & 2 bras. So a total of 15 items. I would say fill to your own capacity, I had no problem with the items that I put in because they weren’t denim and they were soft clothing. It washed excellent, spins great, and rinsed wonderfully! And the items were super dry when they came out and not wet and soggy. I have carpet in my unit so I would recommend a dolly. I thought that I wouldn’t need it but I really do because I have carpet and where I have the washing machine set up to wash is not where I plan on keeping it. So moving it back-and-forth through my house is a little bit of a hassle. I can say I wish the extension cord was longer, but thank God I had bought one from five below, so I was OK. Installing it was very easy as a woman who is not too handy and has ADHD, it was a breeze. Hopefully this review stays the same and I don’t have to come back and edit it because it’s no longer working, but I did put insurance on it for 36 months because I read filing a claim would only take about five minutes and they will send out replacement parts if it’s not working.

    This thing is definitely HUGE!

    Product was very heavy for me and my son to bring up 3 flights of stairs 100lbs felt like 300lbs. Other than that , so far so good had it for over a month . I recently got rid of my old portable washer because the pump hose stopped working properly and Honestly I needed an upgrade from a semi automatic to an automatic. I have done queen sized blankets , jeans towels and bath rugs( just be mindful of what type of material the rugs are) clothes come out so fresh and clean. I am relieved I don’t have to wash my clothes after strangers. Get yourself a portable dryer if you can!

    Love this washing machine

    I live in a one bedroom apartment, it’s small in my machines going into my kitchen. I was using the smaller black and decker washing machine portable .9 ft.³. It was great but I decided I wanted something bigger and I got this black and decker 3.0 ft.³ and oh my goodness it’s huge. It is loud. It’s in my kitchen and when I turn my TV on, I have to turn it up loud to hear it because the machine is out loud. I can wash a full load of clothes. I can wash king size sheets with towels in the same load. I could also watch my king size comforter. I am so excited I don’t have to go to the laundromat to wash my comforter that’s how big this washing machine is. I bought the cart with wheels to make it easier to roll to and from my kitchen sink. I also have the laundry rack by Magic Chef where the dryer sits on top. It seems bulky but it’s perfect. I’m really enjoying this washing machines. In fact, I try to find things to wash. I’m so so happy with it.

    Very good washer

    I have done 3 loads so far and am really pleased. I can see from the dirty water being drained that the washer is really cleaning well. Also, the spin cycle is strong and gets most of the water out so line drying will be much quicker. Love this purchase!

    So far, so good

    I received my new Black + Decker Model BPW30MW, 3 cu ft portable clothes washer a couple of days ago. It actually delivered a day sooner than originally quoted which worked just fine. Just a word of warning, this unit weighs in at 100 lbs. by itself not including the box and protection styrofoam. I was able to move it through the house on its 2 wheels and that did include over a throw rug so it can be moved around. During the unpacking, I did find a small dent on one side but nothing I couldn’t live with. I was sure to remove all the styrofoam including some pieces of broken packing inside when I installed the bottom plate so look closely. There is a large formed piece of packing material inside the top of the machine that keeps the drum from moving around when you are transporting the washer and I suggest you leave that in place until you have placed the unit in its final resting spot. That drum rolls around inside the machine very easily and that packing keeps it in place. In my situation, the machine was placed in a laundry room so will not be moved again except to clean under it. I used my current water supply hoses and stored the new ones that came with the machine for future use if necessary. I also remove the forming neckpiece from the water discharge hoses because my waste standpipe is directly behind the machine and I see no need for that forming piece. Before starting any wash, I ran the test program as indicated in the manual and saw no leaks or movement of the machine during operation. Please note, use a level to balance the machine out because its agitation motion is very strong it has very high-speed spinning. I have accumulated quite a bit of laundry because my other washer broke a few weeks ago. With that said, I have gone through two large loads of tee shirts and one large load of jeans so far without a hiccup. That is a good thing. I will continue to wash back-to-back loads tomorrow starting with the bedding (king-sized sheets, etc.). That should be a good test of new-off-the-shelf reliability. So far, so good. I understand this is just the first few washes I have performed so far but, the clothes come out very clean and spun dry to the point where I can cut down on my dryer time. They are actually spun dry better than my old full-sized washer could do. After a couple more weeks of use, I will add to this review. just for the record.

    Works great

    I have had this for several months and it still works great. It is trial and error on how much to put in, but works great. I prefer just doing small loads, because it only takes 30 minutes, and they are wrung out pretty good. It don’t take long to hand dry. I love, love, love, this.

    Wonderful washer!

    This is the 2nd compact washer I bought, and the first one died after a month of use. I was heartbroken! So I looked for a while and then I found this one.I wish I had bought this one first! The first thing that attracted me was the brand name. I should have bought a brand name to begin with, but you live and learn.I love the size of this washer. It’s actually a bit smaller than the 1st one I bought, but it’s a workhorse!I just wish it had a beep to let you know it’s entering the rinse cycle so I can add fabric softener. It doesn’t have a built-in dispenser.I use detergent sheets so I can’t speak about sudsing.It gets my clothes really clean, and it spins the water out.I don’t have to go to the Laundromat anymore!I bought a furniture dolly and the washer rolls out of my bathroom and into my closet.I did have a problem at first. You need to know that when the drain hose is too low, the washer won’t fill up, it will continuously drain the water. Be sure to raise the hose at least as high as you bathroom sink. Once I figured that out, I fell in love with the washer!

    Maybe the best little washer ever!

    The B&D portable washer is like the larger washers, but smaller! Great for those with not much to wash.While it does have a few issues, it does the job quite well as long as you do not overload it to the point the clothes don’t swirl around in the water when its running. So the less you put in it, the better it washes.Here are what I Like and Dislike about this little washer.I like:Doesn’t take up a lot of space!Does everything automatically like a full sized washer does.Doesn’t have a separate spin drying drum like other portable washers.Clear door so you can see your unmentionables being washed.Easy to clean lint trap.You can set the load size number of times it will fill and rinse.Comes with almost every adapter you need to hook it up to a standard sink faucet.I dislike:The power cord is only 5ft 6inches long. Had to buy an extension cord.The water hose to connect to faucet is short (4ft long).The washer will self drain if the drain hose is placed in the tub. So you have to put in sink.The washer only fills halfway even if I set it to Large load and only fills to top it set to Heavy+ Large.VERY Annoying:There is a plastic cover that you have to screw into the very bottom of the machine. The problem is that you have to put the machine on it’s side. Problem is that the cover has no orientation markings (this side up, towards front) that would indicated where it’s supposed to go in and the manual doesn’t tell you anything. And you will spend time bent over trying to figure out just HOW to get it to fit properly. I opted not to do it since there was still some water in the machine the pump did not suck out after using it and I did not want to risk damaging the machine by putting it on it’s side.

    Life changing!

    I’ve had this washer for a year and I love it. I can even fit my lightweight bedding into it. I haven’t been to the laundromat since I got this and the panda dryer. There is a little bit of a learning curve with getting it hooked up and finding the right settings but don’t let that deter you. Once you get it figured out it takes 30 seconds to hook up and start washing. It’s very quiet too. I put it on a dolly to roll it to my sink and it doesn’t shake at all when it’s running. Ive rented my apartment for 7 years and I can stay here with all of the conveniences of a house now.

    Life saver!

    I needed a washing machine at my grooming salon to wash towels but had nowhere to have washer hookups installed. Decided to take the chance on one of these to put in my storage room and I’m so glad I did. Works amazingly! No more lugging laundry bags of heavy towels to the laundromat. I put about 5 standard sized towels in each load (not sure if I could technically fit more, but don’t want to push it), they come out smelling super fresh and everything drains right into the utility sink behind it. Installation was very easy, even as someone with zero experience with hooking up washers. Came with everything I needed to hook up to the sink. Very happy with this purchase.. Saves me so much time and money!

    A GAMECHANGER for small spaces

    The media could not be loaded.

     This New Yorker can’t recommend this mighty washer enough!!! I have been using for about 1 month and this compact portable washer is the perfect addition to my apartment.To address the complaints about the back wheels not really working; these are accurate as you have to tip the machine sooooo far back in order to get the weight of the machine on the wheels. I keep mine in my kitchen and simply pick it up and walk it over to the sink. It’s really not THAT heavy but I am a strong gal.Bedding, denim, delicates you name it and i’ve washed it. I honestly think it washes my clothes better than the crusty industrial washers I was using in my last building.Things to Note:-The machine instructions say to only use cold water. I was slightly annoyed at that but then i was reading that cold water actually gets stains out better so joke was on me.-My old sink does not allow for the machine to control the water output so if the machine is done filling up then the connection between the sink and hose sprouts a little leak. I just stay close and know the cycle pattern now to turn on/off the water. The only time it beeps is when something is wrong or the cycle is done. So I have to listen for this faint buzzing noise to know it’s trying to fill up with water.-The first time I plugged it in and pushed the buttons then went on my way. I came back to what seemed like a clean load but after hang drying realized that because I didn’t allow the washer to fill up with water for the rinse cycle I had dried clothes that had a bit too much detergent on them. Now I have it dialed in– I always use the “normal” cycle on a medium load size setting which is only 30 minutes and listen for it draining into the sink so I can turn the water back on at the 16 minute mark and again at 8 minute mark (sometimes the second rinse time varies).-The first few times the spin cycle started i was actually concerned with the speed and velocity that the washer was going to fly around the room. It did not. And now I’m used to it. The spin cycle (video attached) is soooo powerful.-As mentioned, the cycle is only 30 minutes!!!! I love that it’s so short but gets my clothes soooo clean.-My setup is a little alternative. Since I store the washer in the kitchen, the sink is higher and so I thread the drain hose into my over-the-sink dish drying rack and secure by setting down a cast iron pan because the last thing I need is the drain hose coming loose and spraying detergent water all over my kitchen.-I purchased a long wardrobe bar to drill into the wall and S hooks to maximize how much i could hang dry at once!-There’s a yellow tag on the machine that estimates your electricity consumption for this machine will be roughly $6!!!!!! I paid $6 just to do 2 loads in my last building. But most importantly, drying and dryer sheets are bad for your clothes and the earth!I considered buying a cheaper plastic version on amazon for maybe $100 and I’m sooooo glad I sprung for the Black + Decker machine.

    Just buy it why don’t cha

    No issues with mines. If properly installed for sink fitting it is perfect. I ordered this in Feb 2023 & and I’ve use it every week for me and toddler daughter since I’ve purchased it. This has been such a blessing to be honest ! It’s DOESNT need a Dolly if u have it in the right place (where it will be mainly used) & as long as you have strength you can pick this up easily with some effort. It has two small handles to move it and if you keep long nails like me pick it up from holding the inside. If you’re on the weaker side then yes I recommend a dolly. This don’t rocket science. The bad reviews I believe are coming from users who have screwed the light bulb in but forgetting to flick the switch. I hope this helps. Shalom everyone 🤍

    3 years and still going strong

    Bought this thing back in 2020 for obvious reasons. Back then I was only doing 1-2 loads a week. Now it’s 2023, and I’m using this washer more than ever, 3-5 loads a week. It’s held up perfectly over the past 3 years and is still going strong.I put it on a rolling dolly with brakes to make it easy to move around and have a diverter for the shower head to hook it up to. The pump does require that the exhaust hose be higher than the wash basin to work, so I stuck a suction cup hook to the shower wall to hang it. And the exhaust hose itself was too short, so I bought a universal washing machine hose that fits multiple diameters, cut it to size, and silicone glued it to the original hose.Overall, one of the best things I’ve ever bought.

    Great product

    This is a great purchase. It is heavier than some plastic body alternatives. It is great for fragile cloths. It can wash very gently. The quality of the product after a year of use seems to be very high. Honestly, it doesn’t seem to be able to wash hard, I mean for very dirty heavy cloths. Even the heaviest option doesn’t seem to be that heavy wash. But it does the job, it might not be suitable to wash the cloths for mechanics. So technically, it’s always very quite and never damages cloths but it cleans and dries well enough.

    7 months into the washer.This is the best purchase I have ever made!! The only con I have is the size, too small. I wash in multiple loads but I rather do that than make multiple trips to the laundry mat. I save the money and the hassle in the long run.Please make sure to tightly seal the water hose into the machine to avoid leakage.

    3.0 Black and Decker saved me!!!!!

    The media could not be loaded.

     I did not know that id was going to be so big, (almost a regular sized washer) but I made it work in the space that I needed and pretty happy about the purchase so far only thing I disliked was getting this bad boy up the steps. Reading is fundamental the product weights 100 pounds and was fairly hard to get up steps but I called for help and that was handled. The wheels are odd on the product so I opt for a dolly no more weird wheels. Drain hose is short if your planning on leaving it stationary In a kitchen you mite need a longer hose. I used the water hoses out the box I haven’t had any leakage so far I’ve only washed 3 loads. I have the product under a magic chef compact dryer stand and on a dolly for mobility. I will say this is on the pricey side but just so darn convenient. The washer has many different programs and washes good. I paired it with a 3.75 black and decker dryer for the ultimate experience. In one of the photos that’s one of those queen size throw in the washer. So you can see just how much you can fit. It says 26 pounds of clothes can fit. I’ll be back with a photo of that paired with the dryer when it gets here! So far so good!

    Best $250 I’ve spent

    Value proposition:- I’m a single guy in a 1br apartment in a historical building, so this guy has been a game changer. The alternative was paying $5 in quarters for a small wash and dry at the laundromat across the street. No thanks. Return on Investment (ROI) is strong here. If you’re a sporty person like I am and do say two loads per week – one light, one dark, it pays for itself in six months. In my case, it’ll be sooner.Setup:- I have this setup semi-permanently in my kitchen near the sink and use the adaptor to hook it up and then detach it after use. I have to take off the aerator on my sink to use the adaptor, so sometimes I just leave the adaptor on the sink for a few days but this makes doing dishes a bit messier. It’s not difficult taking the adaptor on and off; if you’re busy it’s just another thing to have to do. If using the kitchen sink, make sure you don’t have a “shower head” style head only because it won’t work with that I wouldn’t think.- My only real complaint with the setup is that the drain hose is a little too short to comfortably reach the sink so I ended up using a mini bungee cord to make it reach, hooking the bungee cord around the faucet. You could also get an extra PVC hose to extend the drain hose, it appears to be about 1″ in diameter. For drying, I got a simple metal drying rack from Amazon, whatever the top choice was, and it works well.Functionality:- This gal works beautifully and cleans my stuff every bit as well as my parents’ $1.5k+ machine. It is a top loader but agitates gently like a front loader, so it doesn’t damage your stuff like one of those older machines. I use the Kirland Signature pods that come in the orange conatiner with this machine and they work well. I do hope that isn’t too much detergent for the machine, which is the .9 version, but so far no side effects.-On settings, it’s curious that the “heavy” load cycle is shorter than the “normal” load cycle. Not sure how that happened. I use “heavy” because it’s already 63 minutes. There are also “gentle” and “rapid” cycles that are shorter so you have flexibility.- Basically, the way clean water works is that you turn on the sink after hooking up the intake hose, and the machine only lets water in when it’s needed. To get warm water you just turn both taps on all the way and for cold, you use the cold, just like you normally would with a sink. The manual says to use cold water only but I’ve used warm water for whites with no side effects. I have yet to try hot only. Just proceed at your discretion realizing if there is damage to the machine it could void the warranty. Honestly, it seems unlikely it would cause damage, it’s probably just some legal thing.Wrap-up: That’s really it, I’m a happy camper and could not think of a single $250 purchase that I’ve made that has been a better investment and improvement to quality of life than this beauty. I end up using it pretty much every day because I’m a sporty guy and the load size is small-ish. That said, I can wash everything except for like a duvet in there so it’s perfect for one person.
