    Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 160reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Perfect for an apartment I was deciding between the Haier and the Magic Chef and went with the Magic Chef because of the extra cubic feet.The one con: Yes, it leaks at the sink level. I either turn off the water between rinses or just let it leak a little, it is just leaking into the sink. Perhaps going to the hardware store would solve this problem...but so far I haven't seen the point.The pros:-I can wash my Queen sheets, two towels and a hand towel all at the same time. I could wash all my clothes for the week in one run...but I like to split my darks and lights.-Lots of run options, so you can run a quick load for smaller, not so dirty linens.-It spins really well. Currently I am playing with the air dry option, which is just a spin cycle, since the towels take awhile to air dry.-It doesn't take up too much space, Note: It will not fit under a table, read the dimensions online.-I don't have to go to laundromat! (True for every portable washer, but still if you are just generally considering a portable washer) 01/21/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by BE ADVISED THIS MODEL HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED Be advised before buying that this model is no longer available from Magic Chef and no replacement parts can be obtained. We got it just over 90 days ago and now need a replacement part that no longer exists. Neither Magic Chef nor any replacement sites I've visited even recognize the model number. We were told via phone by Magic Chef that this items is no longer available. Bear in mind that if anything goes wrong with this model you're just out the money. 04/05/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by very good washer machine I ordered this machine and was worried at first about having it ship to my home after reading the reviews.I seen many had theirs ship to Walmart, but i took the chance and had it ship to my home and let me say it came very fast and in great condition.The washer was pack great .I love this machine it was very easy to hook up .I did my first wash and was very happy how great this washer really works .Since i am a single mom with one son this machine really came in handy for our small home .Great size it really holds a good amount of cloths ,I was shock how clean they came out .The only down fall is no wheels to move around it does have back wheels but find it hard to use them to help me move it .So with that said i don't mind since my kitchen has a nice area to keep it in. I seen the reviews with leak issues but i have no issues with hose leaks or any kind of leaks .This machine is very good and so happy i bought it . 02/11/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Washer! Hello Everyone,I am a 27 year old guy that just purchased this great washer about a week ago. I was going back and forth on getting this washer or the smaller Haier one. After reading a lot of reviews and watching youtube videos on how this machine works I went ahead and decided to buy it. First thing let me tell you that walmart has the cheapest prices for washers so go with them. I did all the research I could. Second i have to say that everyone that posted a review regarding how great this machine is its the TRUTH! I got the washer earlier then expected! I hooked it up to my kitchen faucet and began to wash. The washer was a little bigger then I expected from the pictures but it is not huge. The only things that I had to do for this washer was go to homedepot and get metal hoses because the connector that goes into the faucet would leak. So what I did I purchased the nice heavy hoses they came in a two pack and I am using the hot water hose for the washer. One thing that you do have to do if you are using one hose is connect to the cold connection that is behind the washer. This I found out because when the washer is rinsing it gets water from the cold connection. Now how to control the temp its the trick. For example if I am washing towels I want to use hot water. So what i do i turn on just the hot water let it fill up and then after its done i switch to cold for the rinse cycle.Now nobody on the reviews explained what the 3D water fall is. I figured it out as well!The 3D water fall is the washer sucks water from the bottom of the tub and sprays it on top of the clothes. This feature is so awesome I have never heard of a washer doing this. It is great because the clothes on the top get water and soap as well.Only one issue is that it only comes with two little wheels on the back so in order to move it around you have to tip it back and roll it which can become a pain. I am a young guy and I can move it myself or my partner helps me move it. So for an older person that cannot move heavy things I would not recommend this washer unless you set it up and it stays in one place. I was thinking of going to a hardware store to see if I could put wheels on it.How Clothes come out?The clothes come out great they are clean and smell clean as can be. Oh the washer also does two rinses on the longer cycles so on the 2nd rinse that is when i add my softer and the clothes smell soo fresh and clean. It is amazing how this little machine can do a way better job then the big washers in my complex.So if you are thinking of getting this washer I say get it! it is worth the money and it will save you laundry money in the long run. 07/19/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by An unbeatable Walmart buy for a superb washer! Magic Chef's Compact Washer is the answer to an apartment dweller's dream --- or those who have limited space for laundry equipment.This is an amazing product --- at an amazing Walmart price. It is sturdily constructed and well-manufactured with easy instructions and gets the job done beautifully, perhaps better than my former Whirlpool stack machine/dryer. In shipping, it is double-boxed and packed tightly with styrofoam and heavy-duty cardboard, so nothing can move or become dislodged. Delivery was made by FedEx exactly as promised.The instructions for attaching the water intake hose to your sink faucet, however, may seem a bit confusing. Hint: After you've attached the adapter to the water intake hose, just place it under the faucet spigot, pull down lightly on the white ring and let it "spring" up into place to lock the hose onto the spigot. I made the mistake of attempting to screw it on to the faucet. Not necessary.Also, when you register the product at, they'll tell you that you need to send/fax a copy of your sales receipt to them. And the serial number of your product is on the sticker on the back of the machine.Let's hope Magic Chef develops a compact dryer, as well, and available at Walmart. I'd be their first customer! 11/09/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by magic chef 1.6 top load portable washer I purchased this machine within the last 2 months! It is an amazing washer :) I don't know how I have lived in apartment without this machine.The instructions that come with it really do not answer your questions or concerns.This was my experience: The hoses that come with it are not that good....I went and purchased a stainless steel hose with a better quick connect that attatches to faucet.I had a problem at the beginning of actually running the machine because it worked as stated, but when it came to the *rinse* cycle, it would not fill with water...I had to look it up on line.....make sure the hose from the faucet is connected on the back of machine to the *COLD* outlet can control the water temp to either hot or cold, or mix does not matter..the *BIG ISSUE* is connect hose to the *cold* outlet on back of machine....once I did that, it went right through the entire cycle...NO PROBLEMS!The setting on the front of machine for water temp MUST BE SET ON COLD.....or it will not complete the can use all HOT water.....but water temp setting on front of machine MUST BE ON COLD......what an awesome it :) 11/20/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Nice washer. Make sure you have water drain outlet I received my MC 1.6 washer at the door faster than I thought. Had to unpack it outside and wasn't too bad to carry it in.. The hoses have plastic connectors and might leak for you.. I had to buy 12' hose with metal connectors.. That fixes any small leaks. It does advertise it can connect to a kitchen sink but had to buy a 9.5 foot drain hose, small tube and metal fastener , didn't cost much, but you just can't take the drain hose of this one and put it in your sink and bought the drain hose to reach the bathtub... and that's for those who don't have a washer area in their apartment... Overall it washes really good and spins fantastic as long as it's level. The first drain of water sometimes gives an error. I just stick my hand down in there and loosen up the clothes, press start/pause again, and it drains okay. That doesn't happen all the time! Again it's a nice washer and I can imagine any other cheap brands would be even more trouble, so I'm glad I bought this one. Creates very nice clean clothes that are sometimes already dry. Good product, but be ready to be resourceful if you don't have a washer/dryer area with no drain.. But I like it very much overall.. 11/08/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Washer Machine!!! This washer machine is amazing! It's a nice size and compact. It's a very powerful machine. It left my clothes feeling really clean and washed. For the spin cycle, my clothes came out almost completely dry! Even though the machine is powerful it's surprisingly very quiet! You can barely hear it at all when it's at work. Great for apartment life. Would recommend. 03/29/2014
