Are you wanting to make one that uses no electricity or what type are you thinking of?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I'm looking for something that uses very little water with size being a problem. Its not the electricity that I mind so much... I just want/need something more cost effective and septic tank friendly. And a wringer to get most all the "wetness" out of the fabric.

A compact front loading machine would be what you are looking for, like the one below. Or, are you trying build one?

Trying to build one. Trying to minimize my footprint, you know?

See the video below! This is a great idea, especially for camping! The wash water can be reused if you have a third bucket, too!
