Question Compact washing machine for 2008 Mobile Suites

We have a Maytag washing machine that is no longer working properly.
Unfortunately, this model is discontinued & I'm having trouble finding another washer small enough to fit.
I'm really wanting a regular washing machine only, not a combo unit.
So I'm looking for recommendations - what compact washing machine do you have?

Bosch 500 series. VERY good quality. Full time with it for 4 years now. It is a 220V model so changing your dryer outlet to 220V is easy if it's not already that way.

Cummins, I'd love to have a Bosch & I know it would fit. But we don't have a 220 outlet, our washer & dryer are both 110.
Were you able to change the outlet yourself or do you need an electrician?
Do you still have 110 available for the dryer?
Also, (apologies if this is a dumb question) if you change that to 220, does that have any impact on being able to plug into a 30 amp pole?

You can change your washer 120V to 220V 20A easily, simply by using the black and white as the hots and bare for ground and change out breaker to a two pole 20A. Should still be okay if you have 14GA wire rated at 15A.

I did the work my self. Mine was different and I tapped the 30A 220V dryer plug.

Specs

Volts Hertz Ampers
240 60 12
Watts
2.880 max.

Do you think an adapter like this would do the job?

Your 220vac dryer will not work if plugged in to a 30 amp RV outlet. They are only 110v.

A 50 amp will provide two 110v legs for the 220vac dryer.

You would need two 30 amp outlets that are wired to opposite sides (L1 & L2) of the incoming 220vac. Then you would have 30 amps of 220v.

If they are both on the same side (L1 & L1) you will have 60 amps of 110v available.

Above is true about 30A at the pedestal. I do have a 220V gen if needed.
