Suggest washing machine for less than 20k[max]


guys .... need to buy new Washing machine for my mom , brand doesnt matter to me.... it has to be fully automatic , very less effort needed after the process, and 6.5 kg should be sufficient

please suggest some good brands

I picked mine last month for :r:20,100. :)

IFB Elena VX

There's just one con against it...

It has got just 600-RPM dry spin, and that's pretty less for sure!
Our other IFB (Senator 6KG, 2 yr old model) is having 1100-RPM dry spin, and clothes come out much drier in that machine.

Since we get plenty of sunshine in our home, I picked up this model as ALL machines in our budget of about 20-25K are not able to dry clothes fully, and one has to spread them in sunlight.

Pick one wisely! :)


Insanity is Hereditary
I would suggest go with LG which is considered the best in the market as of now. Though I have bought an IFB still I am made to believe that LG offers the best product currently.

..... what extra benefit we will get from front load
Front loaders consume much less water and are gentler on clothes while still giving a superior wash.

And IFB comes with the longest warranty - 4 years!
Go for a machine with an electromechanical timer rather than one with all electronic controls.

4 years' warranty, and successive AMCs are also very attractive, apart from quick service in Delhi atleast!

New IFB machines have slimmed down a bit and now sport bigger & wider door, big diameter drum with shallow 'depth'!
We're liking this new machine slightly more than what we felt with our earlier IFBs! :)


Reclaimed and Recycled
LG direct drive comes with 10 years warranty on the motor. Quiet too. Service is also good, even in Tier 2 cities.
IFB used to be good, but lately their service even in NCR has been less than optimal. Maybe Delhi is different, but in Noida, I have heard they are not very good.

That said, all machines are good till they work. Once they go kaput its $#@$#@$
