There is a spin cycle. You wont have or want to wash out anything in the sink again! But if you have the need for a spin cycle alone that is a possibility.

Answer: 
Hello quasi and thank you for your question.
You may want to refer to the Anti-Wrinkle washer function which is the shortest cycle (shortest washing times). The total wash time is 34 minutes (including soak time) and washes for 11.5 minutes and rinses for 2 minutes. See page 16 of the Operator Manual located here: Read More

Answer: 
They are separate. And if you don't have the hot/ cold hook up for a machine and are going to use your sink faucet it's very easy to use as well. I hook it to the cold water hose and adjust the water temperature at the sink as needed.

Answer: 
The hoses are separate and made of flimsy plastic. If you are facing the back of the machine the connectors for the water hose inlets are located on the upper left hand corner. If you are going to install it in a permanent location, then buy the metal weave hoses that last up to 10 years.

It does have small wheels underneath, but it's not easy to roll from place to place. I bought a small furniture dolly (at home depot for about $20) to keep the washer on, making it so much easier to roll around.

Yes, casters come in the box. You have to gently put the machine on it's side to install them. This is how I discovered that the bracket supporting the motor and tub is plastic. This bracket was cracked on mine such that I had to return it.

Answer: 
No, but it takes very little detergent, 1/3 to 1/4 what you would use in a full size machine. You don't need foam to get your clothes clean, anyway. I usually add a dash on pine oil to the powder I use, or wash using ammonia.
This is a very small machine, don't overload it and it will get your clothes clean.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This washer was very easy to handle and set-up, I've had it for about a week. I chose to have a permanent stationary hookup, but this washer could be moved to a sink as it has wheels on the back which also made it easy to move by myself to its permanent location. I washed the first of two loads immediately after hooking it up, it was amazingly quiet and did a great job of washing both whites and darks. It spins to near dry making hanging clothes to dry a good option. I'm very happy with this washer and would recommend it to anyone. October 25, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Magic Chef Compact Washer Washer is lightweight, but tiny wheels on the back don't do enough to make it move easily. It has a digital memory, so if you wanted to change cycles, like one rinse instead of two, it would go back to what you originally programmed it to do, or start from wash all over again. It's small compact size was a plus, it fit where I needed it to. I'm wishing it had control knobs instead of digital. I would have kept it if it had the knobs. Needless to say, good value and cleans very well, I just want to control the machine, not the other way around. I'm still trying to find one with control knobs! If Magic Chef makes one like that, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Wasn't certain how this would work, but, it works as well as a full-sized washer. Just a few insights for people considering this item - the washer must be level or it will not spin (safety feature?), the adapter for the hose to faucet has two washers in it so select the correct washer for the way your faucet is threaded. I read one review where the person thought they were sent the wrong adapter. The adapter is threaded to work on a faucet the is threaded either on the inside or the outside. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I can't rate quality since it is a new purchase and I don't know how long it will last but it seems to be a high quality. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good investment, certainly save you the trips to the laundrymat. Can do all laundry except big comforters. Occupy minimal space. Great product October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This little machine is amazing I purchased this for my daughter. This little machine is a powerhouse. Clothes are very clean and do not come out soaking wet. The machine is sooooo quiet. No more sound than a dishwasher. Easy set up and easy to work. I was so surprised the first time we tried it. Ordered online and picked up at the store. Came exactly when they said. Very light and packaged well. We were able to get it up 3 flights in a matter of minutes. Within 45 mins or less we had it running. Very impressed with this little machine. It holds more than you think.. Just don't be foolish and overload it. The regular cycle takes about 34 minutes. Pretty fast. Would not hesitate to recommend it. Great for small apartments or condos. :) September 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Magic Portable Washer This product works well and cleans clothes. Best if you use small loads at a time. Follow the installation directions. I did have a small leak. I do not think I had hose tight enough. I used the adapter to hook to kitchen sink faucet. YouTube videos were also helpful. The machine is pretty quiet and pretty steady. Has only one set of wheels so not the easiest to move but not to hard. It works and better than going to laundromat. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This compact washer is a dream We made this purchase and then built the laundry closet to be sure the fit was correct. That was important since this washer will not be portable in our situation. The original hot and cold water hoses are plastic so we purchased separate high quality hoses to avoid future problems. The service person who installed the hoses was quite impressed with the washer. He suggested to place a large sheet of heavy art paper under the washer to reveal a water leak in the event one should occur. We also flip the H. and C. valves to off when the washer is not in use. The various choices of settings took me a few minutes to learn and are now easy to operate. Great choices, especially the ten minute wash/rinse/spin cycle. The machine is quiet in both wash and spin settings. Water level use is most efficient. The enemy of the wash cycle are large terry bath towels. They become heavy balls that bump noisily during washes. Wash cloths and small hand towels are OK. It is best to keep heavy items separate from light weights. I can wash five or six pairs of jeans with no problem. Add a bath towel and the bumping begins. My solution was to switch to thin or linen towels that cause no bumping. A full set of queen size sheets and pillow cases wash easily and spin exceptionally well. As I recall terry bath towels could also be problems in my previous large family washer. For the price, size and the results produced, I am a happy owner of this washer. July 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good Work very good and was easy to assemble. It is bigger so it fits more clothes then everyday regular wash machines. It has better mechanics. October 11, 2016
