You can also transport it as you wish with a weight of 5.4 kg. However, it will not be suitable for those who want to wash covers of sheets or laundry a little more voluminous, because it has a washing capacity of only 2.8 kg. On the other hand, it is perfect for a small auxiliary washing machine for underwear or for washing baby clothes, for example.
It washes properly provided certain conditions are met: you will need access to hot water for optimal results. If you only have cold water where you want to wash your laundry, washing will be less efficient. In this case, it is recommended to pretreat the stains on your clothes before washing them in the washing machine and run two 15-minute cycles. This small studio washing machine has short wash cycles, a single program with a timer that is very easy to use. Spinning is not the most efficient but for a device of this type, it does the trick. Due to its size, the OneConcept Sg003 has a washing and spinning power of only 180 W. In addition, it is RoHS certified.
This washer-extractor has an elegant design. Most of the appliance is made of transparent blue plastic and allows you to see the laundry inside. At the rear, it has retractable handles, designed for transport. The laundry is loaded from above, which is much more convenient.

It is more suitable for stationary use, its transport may be a little more cumbersome than for the others, it’s up to you.

Buying guide: how to choose the best mini washing machine
- Washing quality
- Spin quality
- Programs and handling
In general, it is believed that small washing machines wash less well than traditional machines, which has proven to be wrong in our reviews. This feature will obviously be the most important when choosing a small space washing machine. Be careful, depending on the brand this can vary greatly. The best way to get an idea is to look at the washing power in watts.
For washer-dryers with a small space, the spinning quality is not always very good. Some do not even have this function. Obviously, this option is really recommended to make your life easier, especially since you will always find some models that perform this task perfectly. The drying speed of your laundry will depend on the quality of the spin. Be careful, however, not to damage your laundry with too high a spin speed.
What is expected of a mini washing machine is to be able to handle it easily. Contrary to what one might think, certain devices reach significant weights, especially if they have wringers. It is really advisable to check this point carefully if you want to transport your device as you want, take it with you on your travels or take it out of the closet only when you do your laundry to save space.
Programs and handling
With more and more efficient models of small washing machines, you will find programs that are practical and easy to handle. When you think about the variety of laundry that you have, it is essential to pay attention to this characteristic. For optimal washing, you will want a machine that will not only wash but will adapt to any condition. Indeed, there are programs for delicate fabrics, others for thick fabrics etc.
Washing machines are products in which we want to invest. And since these are small formats, you can easily spend a little more to make sure you have all the functions you need. The prices of the models we have reviewed vary between 100 and 115 €. It’s a reasonable price for quality products, a small investment for a product that really makes your life easier.
