It’s here! It’s here! It is finally here! I couldn’t wait to open it. My Costway compact portable washer from Giantex was finally here. I was so happy that I could finally do my laundry again…
…No more laundromats for me! YAY!
Once I got it out of the box, I picked it up to see how heavy it was and if I could move it on my own. Yes! I can pick it up without any problem.
This mini portable washer looked like it would fit right into a little girls playhouse. I see it fitting right next to the tiny stove, microwave, oven, and sink. That’s how small it is. It’s a mini washing machine! It’s so freaking cute!
What Costway Mini Twin Tub Washing Machine Offers...

- The Spin Timer has a 5-minute timer.
- There are two water inlets. One for the washer tub and one for the spinner tub.
- The gravity pump connected to the bottom of the machine helps facilitate water drainage.
- 17.6 pound capacity between the Twin Tubs. 11-pound washer capacity and 6.6-pound spinner capacity.

- Spinner and washer can be run at the same time.
How it works
The Wash Cycle – Washing My Clothes
After the wash cycle is complete, I switch the Wash Selector to Drain. It drains the water out into the bathtub.
There are multiple ways to rinse your clothes. I refill the washer tub without soap and rinse my clothes…
…I’ve seen some connect a hose to the water inlet on the spinner to rinse their clothes.
- The washer uses very little soap.
- The washer tub has the 11-pound capacity.
- Inside has water fill lines S-Small, M-Medium, H-Heavy load.
- Small lint filter installed at the back of the washing machine tub.
Off To The Bathroom To Do Laundry
I choose the bathroom to set up my washer. It’s quick and easy. Besides, it’s already a place built for being wet.
First, My shower head detaches from the base and can be easily used to fill the washing tub. Others have used buckets to fill the washer tub.
The washer comes with a hose to hook to the faucet but it wasn’t long enough for my needs.
Secondly, I also wanted to use the bathroom so I could drain the water into the bathtub.
The washer is elevated 5″ from the floor. This helps the gravity pump drain the water out…
…The other option is to set the washer directly into the bathtub.
The spinner reminds me of a salad shooter. Ha!
It spins out most of the water from your clothes.
They feel damp. About 90% of the water was spun out during the spin cycle.
- The spinner can hold up to half of the washer load at one time.
- It has a 6.6-pound capacity.
- It’s not a dryer. It is what a spin cycle would be on a normal washer.
- The spinner stops when you open the lid as a safety feature.
Storing This Small Washing Machine
Here is where the compact and portable comes in handy. After the laundry is done, all I have to do is pick up the mini portable washer and place it in the closet. Because it is so small it doesn’t take up a lot of room.
It makes a great small washing machine for apartments without washer dryer hook-ups. Also makes a great washing machine used in a Dorm, RV, Camper, Condo or on the Road.
It can be stored away from prying eyes. No need for the neighbors or the landlord to know about it.
- Environmentally friendly and energy saving.
- Energy Level 3, Consumption .101
- Water Capacity 5.0Kg, Consumption 50.0Kg
- Saves on water.
- Uses less detergent.
- Is compact and space saving.
What Others Are Saying About The Costway Small Compact Portable Washer
This little machine is amazing. I did several loads by pouring in the water using a bucket. –John & Linda
Been using this for about two weeks. I am impressed with the quality. –Ruth
I live in a house with roommates but there is no laundry machine 🙁 I HATE public laundromats and it’s ultimately the biggest hassle because I have to stay there until it’s done since I don’t feel comfortable leaving and coming back. After debating and researching for a couple months, I finally decided to purchase this. I AM SO HAPPY I DID!!! Having my very own mini laundry machine (Washer & Spinner) in the comfort of my own home/room is amazing! —Kim
OMG! I absolutely love this machine. The washer gets everything super clean and the spin dyer sure is better then I excepted! Within a few hours, most everything is dry. I am now able to clean my 6-year-old uniforms and jerseys more often without running to the laundromat! —Mary
I had no idea that I would go ga-ga over a little washing machine! I’ve had it for about 6 months. I absolutely love this little machine and bought a second unit for my daughter to use in her apartment. It is amazing how clean the clothes get and how dry the spinner gets them. I am saving so much energy because now I not only use this little machine, but I also hang my clothes up to dry on a clothes rack. — Sue
Would I Buy This Mini Portable Washer Again?
Yup! Yes! Ya! Absolutely!
I love this little washing machine. Hated having to do laundry at the laundromat.
It saves me time. With it being so small I can use it without the neighbors or the landlord knowing about it. Now I need to add a mini compact electric dryer using a standard house 110v plug. HEE HEE! I have my eye on one!
F.A.Q – Costway Small Compact Portable Washer
A: The box says Costway on it but it doesn’t say what it is.
A: It’s the company that sales Costway Washing Machines.
A: Yes it does! I wash two regular sized bath towels at a time. Since terry absorbs so much water I didn’t want to overtax the agitator with the weight of the towels.
WOW! I’m so glad I bought my little washer! — Nicky
