Portable washers and dryers are ideal for apartments because they are smaller in overall size than standard washers and dryers. They also have a smaller laundry capacity than standard-sized washer-dryers, but get clothing just as clean. Haier, Whirlpool, Kenmore, and Danby are some of the top-rated portable washing machines.
Portable washers can be installed for temporary or permanent use. They often come with a variety of types of cycles. They can usually be rolled instead of lifted, since some have casters on the bottom for optimum mobility. Some of the top-rated washers have adjustable legs so that they can stand on an uneven surface, and others have plates that can be installed to ensure they are quiet when running.
