Pressure Handwasher

Item #1152405
14 reviews
Ships from Manufacturer. Allow several weeks.
Today's Price: $49.95
Newly Improved Design!

Portable and quick, this little handwasher cleans small loads of laundry with very little water and soap, in only two minutes! When warm water is sealed in the airtight drum, the heat causes the air to expand, which builds pressure. This drives the soap and water into the clothing and combines with agitation to "blow" the dirt out.
  • Ideal for delicate fabrics (use lukewarm water)
  • New patented lid is easy to remove with built-in lever
  • Metal axle is now built inside the unit for sturdier construction and long-lasting use
  • Maximum load: 5 adult shirts or a pair of jeans
  • Works best on small loads
  • 17"H, 14"W, 5 lb
  • Imported

Note: This item is shipped directly from the manufacturer and can only be shipped to a physical address. Delivery may take several weeks or longer. It will ship parcel post to AK, HI and Canada (please call us for a quote: 1-800-438-5346).

Missionaries, travelers, college students, off-grid homesteaders and power outage victims will love this little handwasher. Several big improvements make this model much more stable and convenient than those we've offered in the past.
  • Wide base with 4 suction cups on the bottom
  • Secure handle and rigid arms
  • Solid metal drive shaft
  • Convenient, removable drainage tube (11-1/4"L) with slide in self-opening/self-closing valve - insert the tube and open the drain without spilling a drop
  • Water tight seal on lid
* NOTE: This product is drop shipped. This means it is shipped directly from the manufacturer and may take an extra week or two to be delivered.

"I bought this fully aware of the review regarding it's flimsiness. Assembled in a few minutes, it was even more lightly built than I had expected, but used carefully, it is doing what I wanted it to do. I touched the drain pipe inadvertently after a few loads and it separated from the collar that lug-locks it to the drain. Less than a pound of pressure. Apparently the pieces hadn't even been glued, just put together slip-fitted. I repaired it using crazy glue. Never pick this thing up when it has anything in the tub. The frame pops right off and the fastener covers pop out. I discovered that when I tried to pour out the liquid by picking the thing up and pouring after the drain pipe separated. If you can give it protected floor space that's level, and have a smooth surface to use it on it is superior to hand washing. A shame. The drum is sturdy, and if they had used ABS or even another 1/16th thickness of the members this could have been a good machine. It definitely could not survive a move assembled. I haven't attempted to disassemble it, so don't know if that is feasible. Not the quality I expected from Lehman's."

"This pressure washer was just plain crap! It requires one person to hold it and another to turn the handle...and the thing leaks after two uses. The handle can come off if turning fast too. Poorly made plastic. buy something stronger made of better materials. This is just not worth it!!!"

"Very flimsily made. Not stable while in use. Lid broke after five loads. Handle falls off when turned. Leaks. That having been said, the concept is good. So I threw this piece of junk out, and bought a large pickle jar with a clamp-down lid with a rubber seal. I put the clothes in there with some hot water and soap, then roll it back and forth briskly for a few minutes. The pickle jar works better than this silly contraption. I use this method to get out deep, long-standing stains, and to brighten up clothes that look dingy despite laundering. Works like a charm."

"I really like the product and have owned two. I had to buy the second one just to get a new lid and now this has broken. Hoping just to buy a new lid."

"The frame is not sturdy, it could be more robust, have quick release clamps to lift the barrel out. I use it in the tub where it fits but with little room, it gets the clothes well washed, the soap gets in. But the cotter pin holding the crank handle kept clipping me. After cranking it for a while I drain, open the top further agitate and remove to rinse - the frame is not sturdy - hope it lasts. I purchased it because the high dollar products being produced seem to be built with intended obsolescence. This was an alternative to buying expensive junk."

"this does do what it says it does. It does get your laundry clean, but it does not work well w cold water. It does not rinse well at all and the drain that comes with it is basically worthless. the frame is flimsy but usable, and the suction cups leave a lot to be desired. All in all it is decent for the price, far better than hand washing. I am just going to have to find a better set up for the rinse loads."

"This is an awsome product. I was so excited when I saw the box, that I had to try it out right away. It took about five minutes to put together, which was nice. The second handle that came with it stumped me a bit till I figured out that it was an extra piece. I put in some of the soap nuts that Lehman's sells along with some old stained washcloths. It took me less than 10 minutes to get them all clean! I'm very pleased with this washer. The only downside is that it's made from plastic, which I wasn't expecting."

"I finally got around to washing some hand-knitted goods with this last night. It assembled easy, almost didn't even need the pictorial instructions. It's likely that the manufacturer has responded to some of the build-quality concerns, because it seemed sturdy enough to me for the size loads it's built to wash. The included cotter pins kept everything firmly in place, and I saw no expansion in the mounting arms. I used about one third of the amount of detergent the instructions suggested, and my items were thoroughly sudsy after a couple minutes of agitation. I'm a fan of how simple this washer is to assemble and use, and I'm impressed with how little water it uses. Disclosure: I am a Lehman's employee."

"I raised 10 children and at one time to save money bought one of these. I eventually bought a 2nd one to do my husband's work jeans in. I loved it then and one of my children wanted mine so I am about to buy another one. I have washed sheets, adult sized work jeans, towels, etc. in these and always got clean clothes. The drain pipe is NOT suppossed to be permantly attached. It locks securely in place. If it came off with only "1 pound of pressure" you did not have it completely locked in place. In 13 years I have never had the lid come off. I do wish I had gotten a wringer and bucket for heavier items and will be doing this time. I really believe many of the complainers are not properly using their machines. You must use hot or warm water, that is what causes the pressure, thereby locking the lid and assisting the cleaning process. I suggest you read the instructions."
