Is a Portable Washing Machine Right for You?

A portable washing machine is the ideal solution for people looking for an in-home laundry solution when there are no existing washer and dryer connections in your apartment, condo, or home. It is important to distinguish between the different models and options on the market today. Some models only provide washing functions, so you still require a drying solution. Other models, like the LG all-in-one washer and dryer, include both washing and ventless drying into a single portable appliance.

How Does a LG Portable Washing Machine Work?

A LG portable washing machine functions just like other front loading washers and dryers. The key difference is how you connect the water intake and discharge lines. Instead of connecting these to actual washer connections in a laundry room, they are connected to a kitchen sink conversion kit. The conversion kit includes connections for both the intake and discharge lines into a single piece, which conveniently attaches to most kitchen sink faucets. Once connected to the faucet, you turn the water on and select the desired water temperature. In cases where you are using either hot or warm water for the wash cycle, you do need to adjust the faucet to cold water for the rinse cycles. After the wash cycle is complete, the machine automatically starts the drying cycle.
