Remodelista recommended the Miele 24-inch front loading washer, the Bosch Axxis Plus Series washer and the Asko Designer Series fully integrated washer in its 2013 article about compact washing machines. These appliances received high marks because of their advanced features, which are often omitted from compact washers.
A compact washing machine should fit into a 24-inches wide by 34-inches tall space. Their diminutive size means they can fit under kitchen cabinetry and in small closets. The Asko Designer Series washer accommodates a custom cabinet panel, which a consumer can use to camouflage the appliance. Also, some compact washers, like the Miele front loading washer, do not need a 220-volt outlet and can use a standard 110-volt outlet instead.
