Haier HLP23E Touch Pulsator Washing Machine 4 Cycles 1.46 cu ft

If the HAIER HLP23E Top Load Washer goes any smaller than its tiny frame, it could be mistaken for a dollhouse appliance. The plastic tub seems to emphasize this idea. However, this tiny top-load washer has the capability to thoroughly clean each load while remaining affordable and being user-friendly.

Interior Features
  • The HAIER HLP23E Top Load Washer offers 4 water level options even with its small size. The water levels affect the time of operation, one level setting the duration at a mere 7 minutes while another reaches the maximum of 90 minutes.
  • The portable washing machine operates with minimal noise and vibration.
  • The machine offers 4 preset wash cycles, including soaking, permanent press and delicates.
  • Standard preset cycles include the standard wash, quick wash, gentle wash, spin dry and gentle.
  • All other cycles besides the wash only have a spin dry stage at the end. There is also a spin dry only feature.
  • The spinning cycle speed can reach a maximum of 690 rpm.

    Exterior Features

  • This Haier washing machine model has an end of cycle signal for convenience. The signal can alert the user to load another set of laundry or to go about other business.
  • The time remaining indicator helps the user plan his or her time better and to know whether to wait the cycle out or not.
  • The tub is made of plastic.
  • The tub has a capacity of 1.6 cubic feet.
  • The
    overall color of the washing machine is white.

    Dimension Specifications

    Height: 34.72 inches
    Width: 20.08 inches

    This portable washing machine beats the power of hand washing, by a mile. The Haier HLP23E fits into any room, even students’ apartments. For a small machine, it can generate a lot of power. There are enough wash cycle options to cover all sorts of fabrics and degrees of soiling. It has a clear display that shows the stage of the cycle the current load is in. The machine can easily accommodate the laundry of small households and single member homes. The spin dry can effectively dry the laundry overnight.


    This is a starter machine, which means it should be replaced in case of household expansion. It does not have a dispenser tray for fabric softener. The laundry can get twisted and turned and may need some serious ironing after cycle. Drying does take a long time. It may not be successful if done in a short time. The washing machine is not Energy Star compliant. The unit can sometimes tremble during operation.


  • can perform all basic washing machine functions
  • has special cycles for delicate fabrics
  • convenient estimated time remaining display
  • small and portable
  • quiet operation


  • the unit is not that energy efficient
  • starter washing machine
  • lacks convenient features
  • can vibrate or tremble during operation

    Love this thing

    For the purposes intended, this machine is great. Size is good, bearing in mind it is a portable machine. The wash gets clean. The machine is quiet. Setting it up is easy. They even have wheels you can attach to it to truly make the machine portable. It is light enough and easy to carry (has handles on the side).

    If you want to: wash bulky blankets, spin clothing until it's almost dry, have perfect washing dynamics (no 'twisting') or every convenience feature (eg bleach and softener compartments) -- then this might not be the right machine for you.

    This machine is perfect for avoiding the laundromat. Hooks up to a kitchen or bathroom sink. Can drain into either as well. Plug it in to a regular wall socket. That's all. Saves money, time, trips up and down stairs. It's cleaner and safer than the laundromat. Perfect for students, apt dwellers, older folks, people starting out, single persons, busy professionals, households with babies, etc.

    This washing machine fills a niche. I really like mine and would purchase another Haier any time.
