Best purchase of 2021!
I bought this around 2 weeks ago following my parents moving out of state, which left me without a laundry solution. So far, I am more than pleased.
I live with my partner and we adhere to quarantine pretty strictly, but work outside of the house around 3-4 days a week. This easily handles our laundry needs with about 2-3 loads once a week and works as well as any full size washer I have used.
It has handled a small dog bed, towels, sweatpants, tough work aprons, etc. like a pro. It can fit a king size plush blanket without a problem. Load sizes have been a bit tricky to figure out, so I do wish there were size indicators inside the drum or more guidance in the manual as the difference between a medium and a large load (which determines how much water it pumps in) is a little difficult to work out. So far the only thing we haven’t washed are our bedsheets, which I am admittedly a touch concerned about.
I was concerned about washing my clothes in only cold water, but they come out just as fresh and clean as I’m used to, and seem to be a lot softer for it as well. My parents used it to do a small load right before they left and were also very impressed. We’ve used powder and liquid detergent and it handled both well. I have no tried any in-laundry scent boosters yet, but plan to and will update when I do.
The lint traps are quite clever and VERY easy to clean out, which is something I was concerned about. I would recommend getting a sink strainer of some kind as, depending what’s in the load and how many you do back to back, it can spurt out quite a lot of lint that doesn’t get caught in the filters.
The spin cycle gets the clothes surprisingly dry and even does better than my parents’ full size Samsung, in my opinion.
Set up was a total breeze. Took us maybe 10-20 minutes altogether and the hardest part was just maneuvering it in our small space.
I definitely recommend it for anyone in a small space needing a laundry solution. The price is absolutely worth it, especially when you factor in the sheer convenience of not having to go back and forth to a laundromat or friends/family.
I put a 3 for energy efficiency just because I have not yet gotten my electric bill since hooking it up and I pay a flat rate for water, so I really don’t know what the impact is there.

Review based on a Magic Chef 3.0 Compact Washer
My review to this product is 10+. Does it’s work! Just don’t get fooled by the word compact, this is not a small washer. This product is built Like a normal washer but a lil smaller. Capacity wise, excellent! Noice wise great! Only issue you might run into is the connection for the faucet. And for that all u need to is ask someone associate at Home Depot for help. In my case it fit perfectly next to my vanity but I had to reroute the hoses to avoid them getting damaged when pushing my washer all the way back against the wall. Also I purchased additional hoses to reach my water connection to my bath tub. Remember that u can always ask an associate, they will show u the connections that will fit perfectly.

It does what it's supposed to
I purchased this over a month ago as a short term option because our washer & dryer are both old and stopped working, and our house is old and the hook ups are in the basement, and we can't fit regular sized ones down the stairs. (Stairs are narrow, and our old ones were flat back, which they don't make anymore). This washer works well for us. We have 3 daughters so I do a lot of laundry, and so far, it hasn't let me down. The only issues I have with this is that it takes 51 minutes for a bulky wash to finish, and sometimes I have to put it on an extra spin cycle to wring out excess water. Other than that, I have no complaints so far.

I bought this on June 13th, 19. This washer is only 23" wide and 23" deep so it's smaller than specified but it fits into my small space perfectly. My friend installed it with ease. The digital controls are easy to operate, it's very quiet and doesn't shake or vibrate, the final rinse cycle is the only time it might be somewhat louder. The clothes come out of it rinsed thoroughly. My old GE washer was 39 years old, they don't make them like that anymore, but I hope this MC lasts a long time! Excellent price for great quality!

Great washer. Quiet and works very well.Bigger tub than I thought and cleans my clothes, towels and sheets very well. Some loads come out almost totally dry and need little time in my dryer. Fits my space very well. I could not be happier. The price was good also. Controls very easy to understand and easy to operate.
