For its usage, the clothes are put into the tub, detergents follow suit, water is next in line, and then you set the machine in motion after you must have set the timer. After this operation, the clothes are removed and placed outside to dry like every other laundry.
Nonetheless, the machine also has its advantages which includes water conservation, low power and time consumption.
Additionally, it takes up less space due to its petite size. If you’re a bachelor in a room self-contain or a flat, and you have limited space, you could try out this type of washer. Even more, the machine is mobile, so you can move it from the bathroom or wherever you want to use to another place of storage.

More so, it is relatively bigger than the single tub washer. For each tub, there’s a timer to time its operations. The tub assigned for washing makes use of a pulsator to move the clothes gently or vigorously in water while the drying tub makes use of a turbo drying system. After the washing, the clothes are manually transferred to the drying tub to drain the moisture.
It takes up more water, power and time than the single tub washer. Although the power consumption isn’t as much as the fully automatic washers. It can also be moved around.
