Have you thought about something like this?

NewAir AI-100CB Blue Portable Ice Maker

I have this exact machine and it works pretty well. Takes a little bit to get going but once it does it should serve you well.

there are other options...my mother used to wash a lot of things in the kitchen sink with woolite.

Hmm..edit to add this-went and looked around the site and i'm intrigued...i love simple things and old things or updates to old things. This kinda fits all those.

This would store easily..and is green..would use less water and it would be good excersize!

I think it needs to be a little shorter. Dimensions say 28 inches tall (rounding up). I think my lockers are 24". I have it written down somewhere.

Now we are too small. Only 14 and an 1/8th inch tall. I'm looking now for something in a 20" range. If I can find something big enough to wash more than a pair of fuzzy socks but still fit in the storage area, I'm so getting one. I absolutely HATE laundry mats and washing by hand long term, yeah that ain't happening.

That Sears one says 120V and 10amp circuit needed. Sounds reasonable. Also says 60KW a year which is a useless number without know how often it is being used. Says 1 cubic foot capacity but doesn't specify how much water it uses. Assuming it fills to the top twice (wash and rinse) with nothing else in it (no clothes), it's 15 gallons of water. That's worst case. 1) it probably won't fill to the very top, 2) the rinse probably doesn't use that much water 3) what's the point of using it empty? Realistically 8 gallons maybe?

a bucket and one of these will do-

The added benefit is the bucket and washboard can double as musical instruments, of sorts... Thus you can wash your clothes AND have your own jug band.
Just remember when shopping for a washboard- COLUMBUS.

I tried the wash board method last summer. I'm happy to report that I've got a nice relationship with a laundromat again. I even used a barrel to wash quilts. It's not worth a few bucks to wash your own laundry, but it's interesting to try. There's a reason we don't do that anymore.
