  1. Dont go for IFB , Poor service and customer support. I bought a IFB Digi 5.5 Automatic with high expectation but the digital board which manages all operation was changed trice also the machine was creating lots of noise with vibration. Now again the digital (PCB ) is faulty and repair charges comes around 5k. I have done a 2 week research on best Washing machine to buy now and have decided to go with BOSCH. Not yet decided which model to buy. But have decided to get rid of IFB.

  2. We have videocon semi automatic Washing machine. It was purchased in June 1996. It is still working without any complaints. Fully satisfied with its quality.

  3. Never purchase the whirlpool. It is worst , in every six months we have to call the mechanic and two to three thousand expense is fixed.

  4. we used IFB front loading WM, But had very bad experience regarding service, spare parts (expensive), it worked well only for 2-3 years. Then it started giving problems every now and then. I don’t know whether it was due to bad machine or bad technicians. I w’ll never go foe IFB.

  5. Just buy cheap.
    After a long time in US I wen with 2 leading German brand washing machines (front loading). They are just engineered in Germany with most things substandard and made in China. Mostly plastic inside unlike the original Siemens. I have a 13 year old Siemens dishwasher that still original made in Germany and not China made and it works just fine now.
    Pla dont waste ur hard earned money on such expensive brands that only have the label but are dumping substandard Chinese stuff here for a premium. At least with the less expensive ones u will be less sad replacing every 3 years. Also i think it may be intentional but these crap never break down during warranty.

  6. No doubt big washing machines ae good for medium or large family but for small family big washing machine is a waste of energy as well as it costs a lot. From this point of view I guess samsung mini washer is a great option for small family consist of 2-3 members. Thanks a lot, got some idea about some best washing machines.

  7. This is a nice post about washing machine. This post has given the picture of five best washing machine or five best model of washing machine which will help the people to select a quality washing machine.

  8. I am using whirlpool washing machine since last 3 years. Now it has gear box problem spare parts & service cost around Rs 6000/. Model 621p ,6.2 kg. It is a worst product. Never buy it.

  9. I have been using IFB Elina since 2007. Worked great till 2014. Thereafter almost every part of the machine had to be changed. Luckily I had the AMC so my cost was limited but I surveyed (about 150-160 people in Delhi) with every brand getting mixed response. LG had an edge overall in machine life/performance but no company scored well on service quality though turn around time was equally good in almost all cases (within 24 hrs).

    I have now decided to switch to LG and selling IFB on Quikr and Olx.

  10. I have used LG Model WD 10165 TP for last 10 years. We used it carefully not using the spin at full speed. Last 10 years we replaced the circuit board once possible Rs2500 or so, then 2 years ago changed the drum ( damaged by our mistake of not removing sludge from drain in front) Rs 7500 and the door seal rubber. Recently it started behaving funny but that was due to low pressure from house tank. On connection to main it became OK. We also reset the control card. Now in its 10 th year machine is still OK. However the company handling the service technicians showed poor knowledge. He said drum is out of alignment when the problem is something else. “Replace the drum”- Then he found this machine is old and no spares are available. But thanks God , it is still working and problem was low water pressure.
    I think Bosch machine will be replacement if I replace because they can repair the control card in Bangalore.

  11. how can someone believe on these comments and go for purchase washing machine. but their experiences are useful to take decision if it is true. I am thinking to buy Samsung / Siemen / Bosch in maharashtra (Aurangabad) is service available ?

    • WASHING machines in india are many , but service network is an important issue after 4/5 yrs of purchase.
      also washing machine is basically a mechanical device controlled by electronics. The basic INDIAN washing machine manufacture companies are IFB and VDOCON., rest majority get it made from others and use their brand name. Whatever you buy plz check the after sales service network. best is to ask for PRESENT CUSTOMER contact no. Call him to ask for good and bad points. I am using IFB fron laoding for last 23 years…3 rd machine in my family and have refrered atleast 20 more to relatives and friends in last 15 yrs. EXCELLENT MACHINE…fill it , shut it and forget it.

  12. I’m dumb now…!

    I have been using An LG toploading fully automatic WM in Dubai for last 11 whole years. As sun rises in the east everyday, my machine works flawlessly for all these years. It’s a 7Kg machine and it’s enough for my small family with two kids.

    But in India, within this period, my papa has already changed three machines from Whirlpool and now ended up in a toploading machine from Godrej. Godrej machine has already started rusting issue and may have to change it in next year.

    The whirlpool machines were horrible and we have already decided not to go for it again. I’m from Thrissur, Kerala.

    Why the quality is so bad in India..?

  13. Used LG washing machine for past 10 years. Need to change motor for dryer in 7th year and there were cracks in the washing tub in 9th year. Last week motor (gear tool) of the washing drum stopped working.Washing drums are not available now as its a 10 year old model.

    looking for new WM and preferably go for LG / Samsung.

  14. Hi guys,

    We are using samsung semi auto WM past 15 years with 2 times replacing the timer (very hard to find parts) and changed the spin motor in this 15th yr (local service from dealer end). This repairs were due to water log in WM.

    All semi-auto are good. the problem is service and parts availability.

    Now, we are buy LG full auto WM which has repair logging data to phone. Because repairs are unavoidable.

    My suggestion for buyers with range 10K BUY any Indian brand.

  15. Want to buy a semi automatic washing machine (6kg) with dryer function. Need suggestions on which brand and model i should go for. My budget is approx 12-13k Rs.

  16. best way to wash is only by hands are the 100 times better machine. rest every thing is money waste. after reading in to all comments. I should not buy a washing machine of any brand.

        • Whirlpool z the WoRST brand unleashing machine. With in 10 years I changed two Whirlpool guilt and semi automatic machines. So don’t go for this brand

        • Whirlpool z the WoRST brand washing machine. With in 10 years I changed two Whirlpool fully and semi automatic machines. So don’t go for this brand. In 2013 min I purchased fully automatic topload Whirlpool machine.
          All of sudden on 18.12.2016 machine is not working. Accordingly we have made complaint. We have very bitter experience in this regard. The service mechanic is coming for repair without having much knowledge. He is not at all showing interest in rectifying problem but prolonging the issue. He don’t know exact problem. First he brought v-belt and capacitor, charged Rs.1100/- including visiting changes. With that machine not for repaired. Further he told that PCB has to change. Accordingly he brought and fit in the machine, but no use machine still not in working condition. Then he told to replace motor with new one. After 3 days he brought set in the machine, but no use machine is not worked. This is very bitter experience, resulting forcibly purchase new brand LG washing machine.

      • Do not buy whirlpool else everything u may consider. The parts are costly and Service center guys are experts in looting customers.

  17. As per my idea IFB provide the best washing machine products. Its may be costly then other brands like videocon and onida to buy but more reliable products!!!

    And for washing machine repair services you should go with DELHI REPAIRS

    • Even I thought IFB is best machine…before I didn’t purchased…from the day one when I purchased..it was creating problem…every other day I had to call service person from company…and finally one day after 2 years of life…it came to end…one day when I left it in washing regular mode…i was busy with my kid…suddenly machine burst in fire…and my terrace caught fire..clothes burnt…!! Sometimes I wish I cud file case on IFB…always buy indian brands…when you buy foreign brands…sometimes good service centre is not available..and sometimes parts are not available…

      • Kritika.
        IFB is an Indian Brand the full form is Indian Fine Blanks it toatally an Indian company with headquaters in WB. there was a problem in your particualrly piece, infact you should take a legal action towards the company, and get your machine replaced. As far as I have used IFB i never had any complaint since 21 yrs now

  18. I would like to purchase fully automatic washing machine price range around RS16,000 to RS17000. I prefer better washing quality and the clothes shouldn’t be twisted each other and must be separated after wash. kindly suggest a better model suitable to mu choice. Thanks.

  19. I recommend Whirlpool washing machines. My personal experience- world class design and technology with low electricity consumption. And they have good customer care too.

    • Never purchase whirlpool washing machine..i was purchased for 15 0r 16 k in 2009..very 3 rd class quality of whirlpool.i uesed whirlpool fully automatic 6th sence 6.2 kg from last 6.5 yrs.every yr i spend 3000 rs. for maintananes..very low quality mother board..within warrenty of 1yr it was repair two times.
      now l am tired to repair it..so now i decided to purchase new machine of LG.. i recommended LG..only LG..i using lot products of LG but never any problem.now i will never used any products of whirlpool in whole life..

      • I purchased a LG front loading washing machine in 2013. Had frequent problems with the equipment. I had an annual maintenance contract. Kept the service center posted of the problems. Service was prompt on each occasion. They even replaced the circuit board on one occasion.

  20. I wana buy a washing machine under 35 k …I am from Patna ….I want to buy a front load ..is it durable….and which product I should buy please suggest me model number …as soon as possible ..is there any maintenance issue in front load

  21. I had been hunting for a good Washing machine since 3-4 months and my confusion was growing day by day.but through this forum my doubts are cleared and I am finally choosing the best.(in my view).
    Choosing the right gadget is always a very tideous job.but articles/forums like this help to a large extent.thank you everybody.

  22. We provide doorstep washing machine repair service in Delhi and NCR area. Anyone interested can book online repairdelhincr . com

      • Sorry. I have Siemens washing machine with 5 Years aging . It is having major issues with in 2 years & now the drum and bearing is broke down. My recommendation is not to go with Siemens.
        Service Cost is expensive , AMC is pretty expensive & all the angles it’s not good to go.

      • IFB has a very poor customer service and issues of spare parts..i had to beg them and finally they changed whole stuff which was made functional after three attempts..plz never buy it….

    • If you buy whirlpool w m u may have to change pcb assy once in 2 yrs. Which costs around 4000/- . this is the case with many buyers. I changed twice since i purchased whitemagic pro in 2012. Better will be bosch/siemens

  23. If u choosing top load….go 4 onida…its good in quality…rust free body…in built brush…care 4 washing…onida is good 4 indian consumers…

    • Don’t go for onida washing machine. I have been using last 3.5 Years (Onida W/M topload 6.5kg WO65TSB5AG SPARKLE 65 B Silver – Automatic). I have spend more than 10k for repairing itself. Do not go for it. Servicing also worst (we have to follow up every time). I send my grievance to onida They haven’t replied yet. Other product like tv is good from onida.

      • Exactly same thing we have experienced with Onida Sparkle…. Never never think of Onida… It’s the worst brand that I have ever seen

  24. please go for semi-automatic washing machine, if you have hassle-free use for many years with meagre or no maintenance charges. these machines have less mechanism, most of the issues you can fix on your own.
    i bought two sophisticated fully-automatic machines one after another, which last at the maximum 5 years only.
    Fully automatic machines are good until you don’t get any repairs. all the mechanics (including authorized) are less-educated and do not have clear idea of solving problems that crop up in these machines which involve lots of sensors. finally they spoil it and you have no other option other than put it for exchange ( you will hardly get Rs. 600 to 1000 only) investing another bulk amount for next machine. maximum life of these fully automatic machines are 5 to 6 years only irrespective of brands and models if you daily use it because you want to wash cloths of school going children in your house. they are designed to long last only for that much period irrespective of kind of water you use: hard water, good water.


      • nitish- you will regret for this purchase later in life…
        feeling sorry for you choosing godrej, that era ended long back,,,

        • dont purchase IFB washing machines machine is good but service is worst very poor service no body take care about service

          • I agree, Never buy any washing machines if the service is worst. One of the example is IFB which I am facing for almost 2 years and intend to replace so many parts despite of singed an AMC. whenever they are replacing parts they would say plastics and rubber is not cover under the AMC. They are fooling the customer and technicians are not educated to solve the problems

          • Totally agree with you … m using IfB front load machine since 8 years… though happy with technology , their after sales service is horrible… its too costly… whether you took AMC or not….. service not on time and you end up paying a lot with harassment … technicians are too do not detect problem very well … and waste time… worst after few years they stop taking AMC as machine become old….

  25. Hi frnds,

Who make 4yrs complete warrenty and 10 yrs parts support availibilty this brand menufectre in india so i suggest this model

    • too general a comment in the ever changing world scenario.
      we used a semi auto Videocon WM which performed almost 15 trouble free years.
      we simply discarded that to replace it with better appearing Semi auto WM -Videocon, believing the technology must have improved and things may be far better.
      the new one is performing horrible. hardly about after an year this had some or other issue and have been replacing some or other part every month or so – costly and non reliable. no proper after sale service from Videocon. will soon be discarding this with never never ever to buy a Videocon again.

  26. Planing to buy Lg with onam offer in kerala. Cost is only 13000 for tpp load automatic,,, any suggestions please.. Shop owner insisting to buy IFb cost around 24000/-but after reviewing ifb demerits, i hope better lg with semi budget… But Wat about power consumption?? Any suggestions pls,,, thank all

    • My Dears,
      I read some some of your reviews and i want to suggest you that don’t buy LG fully automatic WM, as its from my bad experience from LG and the outsourced service personals in malappuram district, Kerala. I bought a high end fully automatic WM F1480YD25 with dryer for 50K 2 years back from Kannankandy, and now fully automatically out of order. I registered the complaint before 2 WKs but bad response from sales and service end. call center only to register and handover the work order. Until now not repaired, messages informing “Parts pending”. very bad experience with the unqualified so called Engineers. i really regret by buying LG. Now i’m looking for a good replacement for a family of 6 in which four of them school going. Any suggestion please,,,

    • Don’t take sudden decision. 🙂

      LG executives tell all new tech features which are actually problems.
      Once you used to the machine u will come to know it.

      Never buy LG. If you already bought, pls give ur feed back

  27. Hello everyone, I’m happy to introduce our new products which are in stock right now, the washing machine that uses beads instead of water. It cleans faster than anyother machine, the xeros washer replaces the majority of water in a wash cycle with tiny polymer beads that remove stains and dirt. We have our agents or representatives all over the country.

  28. using 7kg front load whirlpool without any issues for 9 years, should say it is imported and excellent m/c. recently it started to have some issues, service was prompt, and replaced timer and lock, cost me around 7k. now after 4 months it is having issues again with door lock. i think once u start to have issues, go for a new machine instead of repairing ’cause u end up paying as much in an year or so…thinking of buying a new one

  29. I need to buy a washing machine which can efficiently work even in da use of high salt water please suggest da best one

  30. actually nice reviews……..From all these comments i just go for LG..siemen and bosch are costly…but yet they are good…very good indeed!!!!
    BUTwhich model is good in LG??? MODEL NAME PLEASE?????

  31. I was using ifb since 10 yrs not satisfied, so just now I bought lg direct drive , RSVP 29,500 (after exchange) service is good but it is leaking , 2 time service men came and did something , but still it’s same so planning to give a written complaint , when I bought my priority was less vibration and good after sale support , except lg and samsung others doesn’t have direct company service so response will be poor

  32. Hi everyone. nice reveiws, hope they are genunine. After seeing aall the reviews I have three brands inview – LG, Seimens and Bosch. Can any one tell me the good place to compare them and buy the best one In Hyderabad. Is it Reliance, Croma, Bajaj, Thirumala, etc.

  33. Program 9 Wool
    2Kg 40’C 800rpm 40m
    No speedwash, no intensive, no rinse plus. May be due to maintain wool’s life.
    But temp and spin can change.

    Program 10 Shirt
    2Kg 40’C 400rpm 1h05m
    Rinse plus 8m, intensive 5m, speedwash saves 5m.

    Program 11 Jeans
    3Kg 30’C 800rpm 1h37m
    Speedwash saves 5m, Intensive 5m, rinseplus11m.

    Program 12 Super30
    3.5Kg 30’C 800rpm 30m
    Temp and speed can change. No rinseplus, no speedwash, no intensive

    Program 13 Super15
    2Kg 15m. And same as super30.

  34. Program 6 Daily wash
    2.5Kg 800rpm 40’C 57m
    Rinse plus 9m, speed wash saves 11m, intensive 12m, temp max 40’C
    This is also less expensive.

    Program 7 Delicate/Silk
    2Kg 30’C 600rpm 43m.
    Speed wash or intensive variation 5m. Rinse plus 6m.

    Program 8 Sports wear
    30’C 800rpm 2Kg 55m
    Speed wash or intensive variation 5m. Rinse plus 7m.

  35. Program 3 Hygiene
    Preset 40’C max 60’C. 6Kg 800rpm time 2h38m. (25m more than Cotton)
    But Intensive 2h53m. Much lesserthan Cotton Intensive.
    Speed wash 3.5Kg. 2h03m. Rinse plus is 16m. So rinsing may be really good. This not have a prewash.
    I may not use this. Speed wash cotton is more economical.

    Program 4 Easy Care
    3Kg 800 40’C 1h35m
    Rinse plus 9m. Intensive 5m. Speedwash saves 31m.
    I think speedwash easycare is less expensive than that of Cotton.

    Program 5 Easy care with prewash
    Take 31m extra.

  36. I didnt wash in 6kg cotton or 6kg prewash
    I will not. I am not ready for work it with full load.
    I think Cotton 20’C with speed wash (3.5kg) is economical. If need, I can choose rinse plus also
    So time will be 1h20m and 10m extra for rinse plus, if I select it.

  37. Program 2 Prewash
    (Prewash with Cotton program)
    Best of my knowledge it is the longest program in that machine
    Here, i didnt got the company manual
    In the machine, the LED disply shows preset details and options are same as Cotton except the timings.
    Preset time is 2h47m 6kg.
    Speed wash 1h54m 3.5kg.
    Speed wash + rinse plus 2h04m 3.5kg.
    Rinse plus 2h59m 6kg.
    Intensive 3h56m 6kg.
    Intensive + rinse plus 4h07m 6kg
    Intensive + speed wash I told we cant select this both together.
    I dont know electricity for this cycle.

  38. Program 1. Cotton
    ( hard-wearing fabrics – as per manual)
    Preset time 2 hour 13 minutes. Spin 800. Weight 6 Kg. Temperature 60 degree Celcius.(in machine LED disply)
    We can change temp to 40, 30, 20, cold, 90, 60.
    Similarly spin 800, 700, 600, 400 and no spin.
    Water consumption and electricity details by company’s manual
    Cotton 90 degree Celcius is 76 litres. 2,45kwh. Time 2 hours and 30 minutes.
    I dont know why they put comma in electricity. It may be yearly. Realty I dont know
    And for all other temperatures in this mode, the time and water is same. That is 2h 15minutes and 68 L.
    Electricity for 60 C is 1,60 40 C is 0,95 20C is 0,30kwh
    Here we can understand each 10 ·C need approximately 0,30kwh
    And we can select rinse plus. Then time shown in the disply is 2h and 25m
    And for intensive is 3h22m
    Intensive + rinse plus is 3h33m
    And speedwash 1h20m
    Speed wash + rinse plus 1h30m
    Note: ( If we select speed wash, the laundry weight for cotton shows 3.5kg instead 6kg. )

  39. Available rpm 800,700,600,400, no spin.
    500 isnt there.
    Temperatures cold, 20, 30, 40, 60, 90 degree celcius.
    Delay wash 1 hour to 24 hour.
    4th button is ‘speed wash’. Actually I dont know how it works.
    It is not a main program. Main programs are in the wheel
    It is making some adjustment in the overal process what we selected from wheel.
    Thus overal time reduces. In some program it reduces just 5 minutes. In some programs 30 minutes. I dont know weather the machine works hard for this.
    In common sense time reduces means electricity also reduces.

    5th is (Intensive wash)
    This seems just opposite of speed wash.
    5 – 30 minutes are taking more for different wheel selections.

    6 th ‘ Extra rinse’ additional rinse by one more water taking and one more spin.
    Speed wash and intensive wash cant select together.

  40. Program controller
    1. Wheel model ( Main program selector )
    2. Push switches 6. These push switches are just below the LED disply
    Each push switch has each functions
    First- Temperature
    Thrird-delay start
    Fourth-speed wash
    Fifth-intensive was
    Sixth-extra rinse
    Original programs are in the wheel switch. First we have to rotate the wheel.
    If we want, then we can change some alterations by using the 6 switches.

  41. Yes. Water consumption seems really low.
    Electric consumption I dont know
    One notice sticked infront of the machine
    In that dryer seems D class. And one A+ is there. I dont know it for washing quality or for overall performance.
    The realty I dont know.
    The company man said that the detergent should be front loader detergent.
    In supermarkets it costs 225 per Kg.
    And 10gm per 1Kg clothe.

    • Yes. After sale service is important.
      Whenever I check on internet most of the opinions are against IFB
      I dont know why.
      Most of them are saying their service is bad.
      Realty i dont know. Now I gave advance for Bosch.

  42. Continuation of my previous article.
    Negative side:
    1. For mine, the dryer makes an inconviniency since 2002.
    Shaking is the problem. If the load is low or high it will shake.
    I have to exactly put the medium load for dry.
    We cannot simply put the wet cloths to dryer
    We have to remove the major water first. But jeans and bedsheet it is difficult.
    And we have to evenly distribute load. Large cloth under and small cloths above
    But still balancing problem. The dryer will work but in a half speed due to shaking.
    If it able to overcome that speed, then it will work properly. The speed lags due to shake
    For reduce shake, I have to catch the machine.
    For every 3 drying I normally gets this luck ones.
    The occurence is more in evening time. So Iam thinking it is due to the low power of motor also
    The dryer motor for mine is 110W.
    So, I suggest 130 is minimum and 150 is reccommended.
    So, the drier can able to cross over the problematic speed and evening problems
    This is my opinion. Iam not an engineer.
    1. Whirlpool semi-automatic 1-2 1-2 handwash whitemagic is good but drier should be more than 130 Watts.

  43. Continuation of my previous article
    Postive side – for mine
    (1) With in 10 year no service required. After that one service from a local servicer regarding the leak in drain valve. Now every 3 months we are doing that self. Because it is not much technical.
    (Drain valve leak what I mean is, the drain valve rubber washer getting old and losing its elasticity. Due to this valve fails to hold water in the wash tub. The leak increases with the mud sedimented inside valve. So open the valve and clean the area)
    (The leaked water goes through drain hose. It cannot drip on floor)
    (2) Timers, selecting knobes, switches are working perfectly as new one. When electricity go timers automatically pause and resumes when power come back. This is not a new feature but, still some semi automatics not have this. And it is really useful in Kerala where unexpected power failures are high. We normally change the timer even machine is working. Still perfect.

  44. In 2002, we bought a semi automatic.
    Whirlpool 1-2, 1-2 handwash whitemagic 6Kg @ 8500 Rs.
    Positive side – for mine – Still it is working.
    Old age complaint – for mine – (1) drain valve minor leak due to rubber washer oldage. Now we are clean self the drain valve area in every 3 months for stop increased level of leak. (2) Rust came below the structure. One side down like a punctured car. Now it is the right time for patch it. (3) Automatic spin break system for accidental opening and safety failed. But automatic switching still perfect.
    For your knowledge all the above 3 are appeared only after 10 years.

  45. My another question.
    Is anybody has / had IFB-Serena ?
    Which year you bought ?
    Is any complaints for Serena and which year ?
    Is the service team corrected it ?
    Is it costly service ?
    Is it still working or not ?
    If anybody has / had Serena. Otherwise please. Dont answer for my question.

  46. Which is the best washing machine in fully automatic ?
    Searched 3 months.
    Still I dont have proper answer.
    Several comments are everywhere. But difficult to take a decision. Because most of the comments are not reveal the relevant information.

    • You can buy and famous brands product.. but you have to check only one thing … who will provide you good after sale service ??? … it will depends the availability of nearest service center… so before buying this, check the after sale service quality of companies …

  47. You can go with BOSCH or Seimens brand in india. IFB now have not good quality as he earlier known in india for front loading washing machine.

  48. sir can you tell me which one washing machine is best to me…actuly i want purchase best washing machine for my home but i am unable to decide which brand is best…according to me i am very much interested in IFB but i have already used IFB but presently it is out of order but it service is very good since 1998 to me.

  49. After doing some research on the internet, and by asking my friends, frankly, i have concluded that in India the two reliable washing machines could be LG and Siemens.

  50. I am planning to buy Bosch 6.5kg WAE20260IN washing machine. Although its a phased out modal last Nov 13. I am getting a good deal. I dont see any issues in support from Bosch in future. I already had chat with them.
    Any suggestion guys?

  51. Hi,
    I would like to share my experience which might help you to choose the best one out of all the brands. I own 5.5 KG front load SAMSUNG washing machine(Model#WF8552SEH). I bought this after a long research and frankly speaking, I feel blessed having it and by the way it performs. I’m using it for the past 5 years, I use it weekly twice or thrice, believe me I haven’t faced any issue with it. I recommend you to go for SAMSUNG front load 5.5KG washing machines if you looking for a budgeted one and if there 4 to 5 family members and beyond 5.5KG if there are more than 5 in your family.

    If you are looking for a costlier one, I would recommend SIEMENS or BOSCH but still SAMSUNG has major command on home appliances in INDIA and has good customer service.

    All the best.


    I….being a techno savvy did lots n lots of research on whether wich brand is good for washing machine…….wich washing machine to buy……after all dis…..i can say this very cery confidently tht SIEMENS is the best brand of washing machine u can get in india…..and BOSCH is also very good…!!!!!

    And I am saying this taking into consideration each & every aspect tht u think of…..while buying a washing machine…..its washing quality…..built quality….durability….features….technology…..service….spare parts….u just be confident abt al these…!!!!

    And I am not doing any marketing of any company….but its my humble request tht…..if u really wanna buy the best washing machine….go for SIEMENS….or BOSCH….!!!!!

    it wil look a bit costly for u….but its better than spending tht sameamount of money in getting any othr machine repaired…!!!!

    I just recently bought a new washing machine SIEMENS WM12E361IN…..Costing around Rs.42,500…..& Its damm Awssum…!!!!!

  53. Hi ! I am thinking of buying LG W/M with Dryer 8 kg / 6 kg Model F14a8yd25 . Can Someone please let me know on hand experience with this machine. It would be gr8 if I come to know by 15 November 13 . Looking forward to your on hand personal experience please. Is it worth buying?

  54. These days …………. Videocon is just a crap….. we purchased a new machine and its just 2 yr old now and It works only 15 days in a month other days we have to open it and show it to mechanic

  55. panasonic washing machine is good? i want to buy one and has seen samsung diamond drum and panasonic which is of 16k. not able to decide to which brand i should go for? any suggestions please?

  56. lg or samsung ?? both dirt cheap south korean companies..i own whirlpool and its is made in italy..and that good enough reason to buy it…don’t buy anything which is manufactured in india even if it is a mercedes benz car…go for a siemens or bosch washing machines…made in germany..

    • dont be so negetive about indian company and quality of their product. Samsung might be a dirt cheap korean company according to you but definitely has more market share than italian giant whirlpool in home appliance market in india

      • We’re sick & tired of repairing this always leaking whirlpool W/M – spent more than twice its cost in last 3 years. Now its again dead and lying there.

    • I recently bought Bosch wash machine and a sealed (New) peace laying inside my house for installation. I had to register a call for installation and trying to connect with them over Bosch Toll Free # 1-800-266-1880. Till this movement, I never had a chance to talk to them. Check your luck

  57. I want to buy washing machine but which one is good .Semi-automatic or Automatic which is good and why .Price comparision and energy efficeant.

  58. I am using Samsung top load fully automatic washing machine for the last 9 years and there was only 1 instance where I had to call the customer service guy. he turned up promptly within hours of my call and the problem was a 50 paise coin from one of my clothes, which had got stuck somewhere . Servicing charge is reasonable. I think Samsung would be my choice again, as I am planning to go in for a new machine for the sheer reason of a higher capacity due to additions in my family.

  59. Wanna thank you all guys for giving feedback on almost all brands, however, even I am planning to buy a new automatic top loading, but bit confused. earlier I had shortlisted, Whirlpool, IFB, LG. But after going through above feedback, will keep my self away from IFB and Whirlpool. But did anybody noticed, there is very little or no negative feedback on Samsung. Can anybody tell is this the best buy machine.
    Can we have one name from Samsung/LG/IFB/Whirlpool, which suits average Indian for top loading 8kg machine.

    • Pls never buy IFB..I bought one 7 KG fully automatic front loading whose warranty was for 4 years. After it was 4 years and 1 month old, the motherboard got spoiled..AFter numerous phone calls and inspection, the authorized service agents said, it cannot be repaired, parts have to be imported and will not be available etc etc …Now I have to buy another washing machine just after 4 years. IFB’s customer service is THE WORST. Pls NEVER buy IFB

  60. Is LG Front loader washer , an energy saving Washing Machine? What is the Power consumption and water consumption? Can you please give your feed back.

  61. Want to buy a front load washing machine with 6 kg capacity & budget of 25 k. The brands in my mind are LG and IFB. LG comes with Direct Drive with 6 motion including Baby care. LG 6 kg supports max of 4.5 to 5 kg due to burden with direct drive drum. Where as IFB have standard washing with belt drives which support full of 6 kg of cloths without Baby wash and have automatic programming concept which supports for older people to operate it. We are 4 with one new born baby. Finally, which one is best in these two brands in service, spare parts, warranty, durability and power consuming as well. Please do help me out…

  62. I purchased whirlpool in 2010. Had an issue and gave a complaint but the service guys never fixed it till now, nearly 50 days. Top brand but not service after sale. Wast of money. On top of that, they do not respond despite repeated calling, emailing. They sent a third party service guy who was very rude with my old mother. They come at whatever time they want and behave very badly. Very disappointing. Planning to purchase a new washing machine again, but a different brand this time.

  63. Thanks for the comments. i also have bad experience with IFB . It needed very costly repairs after 2.5 years and later also. And then they try to sell you AMC , which doesn’t cover many parts! Obviously servicing is a good business. I gave up on them. No IFB

  64. Thank you Nideesh for an enlightening topic on washing machines, which generates a lot of interest and valuable comments. Tomy’s comments are most mature indeed and I totally agree with him, while Saajan’s comment on March 4, 2013 at 4:36 PM is hilarious as the spelling of “important” was incorrect. To confirm with Tomy’s comments, I do agree with him about the IFB washing machines as there is one in my bungalow languishing for many years without being used as it leaks all over, in spite of changing numerous parts at great expense right from the time we bought the machine. Yes, if Saajan had put IFB before the “washing machines” then the spelling was very correct indeed :).

  65. If u want best washing results go for FRONT LOAD machines.
    Best machines in Front Load are No.1 LG, 2. IFB.
    If u are spending Rs.25000 and above LG and IFB’s are best products for life long.
    i have been using LG front load for 5 years still no problems at all.

    Samsung,whirlpool and videocon are not worth to buy and inferior quality.

    • IFB has the worst service… the service person STOLE the main board of the washing machine.
      Even after complaining to the customer care no one bothered to help us.
      After asking to send some other service person, another Shady guy comes by. He tells that the board is an older one and will not come in a box as it is out of production.
      Again the IFB Customer care has no solution to this.
      Damn IFB… its a vortex which sxxxs money.

  66. none of the review actually useful. read all the comments no one is agreeing to one brand which is best or worst. its all mixed replies and nothing decisive can be made out of it.

    • Chetan,
      If there were a single brand which was better than others in all respects, people would have gone for only that. Other companies would have closed down. Each one will have some merits and drawbacks. Depending on our priorities we need to choose. The priority will vary from person to person. It could be power consumption, silent operation, cost, good service, looks, less water consumption, better cleaning of soiled clothes, durability, more functionality, more programs, slow spin to avoid damage to delicate clothes, fast spin for better drying etc etc. No single machine will be best in all respects.

  67. IFB is no way related to Germany. There is another IFB in Germany which is different. This IFB stands for India Fine Blanks. There was a time when IFB was considered the best in India for front loading machines. But today they are one of the worst in India due to quality issues and poor support. I was forced to throw away one due to frequent board failure and irresponsible support. It is advisable to keep away from IFB.
    There are complaints about Samsung regarding clothes getting torn due to excessive high speed spinning during rinse.
    So far I have not heard any serious complaints about LG.

    • I have an IFB front loading W . machine. It has given us a lot of trouble just after an year of purchase.Very Loud noise while spinning action, with severe vibrations and moving farther away from its kept position. AM charges are too high and services erratic and irresponsible. And IFB is an Indian brand..not German. No one should buy this. I am suffering with this worst piece of W.machine for about 4 years. Will buy a SAMSUNG /BOSCH /SIEMENS very soon

    • I agree with you people. IFB has frequent problems and the customer service is terrible. They take away the machine and kept there for months. This happened around 5-6 times.


  69. I have used Whirlpool 1-2-3 top load 6 Kg for since last 3 years. It is the worst machine I ever bought. Ever since I bought, it is full of problems. Then you have to take AMC (after the warranty expires after one year) without which continuing with the machine is immpossible. That means a hefty amount that company charges every ear. Now I have decided to buy a new one.

    • Hi,
      I agree with you completely. My experience is similar to yours. Bought this Make Washing Machine along with a large Refrigerator of the same Make about 4 years back from Big Bazaar Hyderabad. Ever since, have been forced to regularly shell out money for failing parts for both the Washing Machine as well as the Refrigerator and the amount is in thousands. Washing Machine’s PC Board conked twice costing Rs. 3200.00 apiece. Had to replace parts on the Refrigerator couple of times costing around Rs. 1900.00 and Rs. 1700.00 – Once within the Warranty period, as the Company insisted the parts were not covered under warranty. Refrigerator’s Door Handle is so flimsy, it keeps on coming off. They send their Representative promptly upon contacting with an issue , but their contention is that the parts that have failed cannot be repaired and have to be replaced by the Customer. This brand is CRASS. Have used Sanyo fully automatic machine in the past continuously for 14 Years on a daily basis and was still going strong – Gave it away to the Domestic Help and bought this Garbage. No more spending a penny on these junks. Planning to go for IFB BOSCH now. Just sharing my experience to prepare others to be careful

    • All FRONT LOAD machines gives best washing results for washing BED SHEETS.
      Select HOT water for bed sheets and above 95 degree Celsius recommended. Always use HIGH EFFICIENT detergent powders like SURF automatic, ARIEL matic powder.

    • I have recently purchased , aissvaryam company washing machine.. which is really good.. You can buy fully automatic washing machine from 15k….. Which is affordable price..

  70. I brought Siemens wm 5.5kg which is washing quality is very best and outcome is encouraging. timely it works even electricity is less in comparisons with other brands, same options are quit open for daily busy workers. with learning it is German made.

    • Videocon is the worst company. Within an year of purchase I have lot of problems with water draining out and the drier also. Even thought there is 1 year warranty, nobody turns up and they do not have spare parts to supply!

    • siemens & bosch washing machine is very energy effvient. that use only 40lit water for6kg load.energy use only 0.42unit/wash.

  71. While searching for purchasing washing Machine for my friends new house, i have somany confusions before seeing this post. thanks for showing us top and leading washing machine brands in indian market.
