If you’re on the market for an incredibly small washer, one that fits right on your counter of an RV or small mobile home, you’ll be happy to hear the best washing machine for the job might be the Costway Mini Washing Machine. With dimensions of 20 x 14 x 13.5-inches and weighing 14 lbs, it’s easy to use, move, and store.

Why We Like It – Costway Mini Washing Machine

With dimensions small enough to fit on a counter, the Costway Mini Washing Machine offers one of the best options for incredibly small spaces, like an RV or mobile home. For much larger washing machines, read our review on the GE GTW750 washing machines – Alexa integrated for smart functions.

Pros
  • Includes a spin cycle
  • Incredibly compact design
  • Affordable
Cons
  • So-so performance
  • Only washes clothing

Performance

Given the size and what you pay to have a Costway Mini Washing Machine, we weren’t incredibly hopeful about its performance. As far as washing clothes, it does a good job. Where it fails, however, is how much it can handle; a measly 5.5 lbs of clothing. There’s two wash cycles—Normal and Soft—with a timer control. It also includes a spin cycle to force excess water out. That, too, did a good job, but still suffers from small loads of 1.1 lbs. In that case, it might not be a great washer for the best wearable blankets.

We felt the Panda Compact Washing Machine performed a few steps above it. It handles 11 lbs of wash and has 6 wash cycles for unique clothing. It’s nearly $300 more and not as compact as the Costway Mini Washing Machine—but still very small.

Design

The Costway Washing Machine is portable by design. It’s such a little washing machine, you’ll forget that you have one. It’s certainly one of the smallest washing machines on our list, with dimensions of 20 x 14 x 13.5 inches. And it weighs just under 14 lbs, so it’s very easy to move around the house and use. With it being such a small portable washer, this will fit perfectly in an RV, even better than the Super Deal Portable Twin Tub.

Value

The Costway Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub flips back and forth between good value and okay. It largely depends on your needs, budget, and available space. Do you already have a small dryer, and live in a small mobile home, or RV? Then the Costway Portable Washing Machine is perfect for you. Do you still need a dryer? Then you’re better off getting a Giantex Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub because it’s a mini washer dryer combo; it’s a compact washing machine with a secondary space for drying.

Costway Mini Washing Machine Wrap Up

Given the Costway Mini Washing Machine’s so-so performance, we still found it to be worth its price. You’re getting what you paid for: a compact washer that can handle a small number of clothes in the smallest space possible. Lacking a drier is negligible if you’ve bought a compact dryer already.
