There are many things that need to be taken care of when you move into a new home. Setting up utilities ranks toward the top of any to-do list. Before you set up any accounts, think about what utilities you really need and want. That list may include electricity, gas, water, hook up apartment pickup, cable and Internet. This is a good time to re-evaluate your priorities and budget.
What to do? Portable washing machines are pretty small — about three feet high and two feet wide. The operation is simple, even if there are a lot of steps. From there, you add detergent and run like a normal machine, occasionally having to drain or change the water depending on the cycle and machine. As with any appliance, specific models have hook up apartment features and instructions, so follow the manual that came with your machine.
Then in February , I discovered portable compact combination washer dryers and started doing research to find out which is the best. All this occurred in the middle of the night when my neighbors would be asleep to ensure successful smuggling. It took me a while -- and at least 10 small kitchen floods -- to figure out the best way to hook everything up, and my dog barked at the machine for three hours nonstop as it washed and dried its first load. But finally I could do laundry in my own apartment. The small combination appliance worked just as well as a normal washer and dryer, but took twice as long.

Skip to main content. Portable Washer and Dryer Combo for Apartments. Just tried using this last night before taking it to my daughter's apartment. I wanted to work out any issues she would have in her small place. I put it on a tote to raise it up so I could drain into the bathtub and used a pitcher to fill it. I also used a heavy duty extension cord as the hook up apartment on the machine is not long enough. The hose is a little confusing as it is in 2 parts with no instructions for how to put together. You do not need to use very much detergent at all and was very happy with the wash itself. Even though it has a separate spinner and is a little more work, I think it spins drier than a conventional washer.
