Great Idea for a small Skoolie washer.

We are just moving into an apartment, downsizing from our home, getting ready to begin a Skoolie and hitting the road.
One of the apartment challenges is washing clothes. Our new apartment of course doesn't have a washer and dryer or the place dedicated to put one.
So I was looking on line for portable washers and came across this, a small, OK, tiny, (1 Cu Foot.) drawer-sized washer by LG. I think it is newly introduced on the market. Check it out.

Actually.....
What I've been using for the last year is a LG full sized front load washer and a Panda 110v 1500watt dryer. LOVE THE SET UP!

PAN60SF bought new with 2 shipping dents on CL for $60
LG WM2101HW (2014 model) (direct drive transmission) used on CL for $100 with pedestal!

Mounted the Panda to top of LG, and it comes in just under 70" and fits in back of my double rear door bus.

I wash a huge load, then split the load to dry.
It's only me and Buddy (dog) on my bus... But, I wouldn't see a problem with a couple with a kid or 2



Not mine, but same dryer

I went to Lowes and looked at the unit. Great.. One could wash a couple of pair of pants or one set of sheets, etc.
Came home and went on the LG web site and downloaded both the owners and install manuals. The sales literature and both manuals all state that this unit cannot be used separate from certain LG washers.
I went to Appliance Parts Pros web site and downloaded a parts diagram for this washer.
It looks as though there is a power switch on the left-hand corner that can be removed and a power cord added.

Yes, 110v and 1500 watts... Like a big stainless steel hair dryer.
Couldn't be happier!

It'll hold about 8 T shirts, socks and underwear.

If I wash jeans (which I don't often wear) I'll dry 3 pair of jeans, several shirts, socks and underwear.

Plenty big enough for a couple of people

This is a little bigger but still doesn't require much juice. One side is a washer, the other side will spin dry (centrifuge) the clothes but still requires a dryer or line to dry.
