The next step is to open the lid and add the recommended amount of detergent to the main wash tub.

Step 5: Loading Your Clothes

Next, add the laundry load, not more than what’s specified in the washer’s manual, followed by closing the lid.

Step 6: Starting the Washing Machine

Can you fill the Pyle portable washer with water instead of connecting to a water source?

In an ideal scenario, you would connect the Pyle portable washer to a water source. However, in the worst-case scenario, you can fill up the water manually.

But you need to remember that your washer may need to drain and refill based on the wash cycle that you have selected.

So, the short answer is yes you can fill the washer with water but a lot depends on what cycle you are using.

Are Pyle portable washers quiet?

In general, the Pyle portable washer is quiet, but at times it may vibrate a bit depending on the size of the load and the type of cycle you are running.

It’s good to have this washer placed over a thick carpet or surface that can absorb some of the sound and vibration if you are too conscious of the noise.

Do you need to place the drain hose in a specific way so that it drains easily?

The drain hose depends on gravity to drain the water from the washer, so it is important to make sure the hose is installed in such a way that water can flow out freely.

Placing the drain hose above the drain hose level may make it difficult for the water to exit the washer.

Does it vibrate when spin drying?

The amount of vibration is entirely dependent on the balance of the load, the size of the load, and the type of load in the washer.

For example, if the load is not evenly distributed within the washer, the clothes can shift and cause the drum to become off balance, which can lead to an increase in vibration.

Likewise, heavier loads such as blankets, towels, and multiple jeans items can add to the vibration as well.

That being said, in most cases, the washer will vibrate, but it should not be excessive.

Final Thoughts

Installing your Pyle portable washing machine is easy and does not require any special prep work.

Just make sure to connect the water inlet and drain hoses correctly, add the recommended amount of detergent, and load your clothes properly, and it should be good.

Lastly, don’t forget to read the user manual carefully, as it will have the key information about how to use your washing machine along with proper maintenance tips.
