Best Washing Machine Buying Guide 2021

Let’s discuss some important facts about washing machines which are essential. Do not skip them.

  1. The reason why you should buy a front load washing machine is that it saves up to 40% water and electricity instead of a top load washing machine.
  2. Another reason is that comforters and pillows get soaked easily but in top load washing machines, they don’t soak properly.
  3. Water and power consumption are according to per wash program. You can expect 0.5KwH to 0.75KwH consumption per wash cycle from an 8Kg washing machine.
  4. You require a softener in case of hard water which will neutralize Calcium & Magnesium ions from water. It can be bought separately for less than ₹2000. No need to pay extra for this feature.
  5. Front load washing machine works in low water pressure also. You need a pressure pump if you frequently use the heater. Otherwise, it’ll consume more electricity.
  6. Every machine comes with an inlet pipe, outlet pipe, clamps, and bolts along with an installation guide. The regulator and washing machine stand must be purchased separately. You can purchase it separately as it doesn’t void the warranty.
  7. Brands try to attract you with fancy names like Aqua wash, Eco wash, Bubble wash. They don’t tell the real specs like power and consumption, and noise levels while washing and spinning. Do not buy a washing machine without checking these important features.

All these features and specs will be discussed for every product in this guide. The ideal size for a 4-5 member family is 8Kg. I’ll talk about 8Kg washing machines used for washing and spinning. Washer and Dryer is a different category and I’ll make a guide on it soon.

5. Panasonic 8Kg

5 star washing machine with 2000W and 1400 RPM motor. It comes with an Inverter Technology motor with a built-in heater and stainless steel drum. It has 16 wash programs and an Active Foam System. Before starting, the machine will create foam which will be helpful to clean clothes. It has a ‘pause N add feature’ which means you can pause the machine in between and add more clothes.

It has a Gentle Handwash net which is a net to wash soft and delicate clothes. It comes with Wifi connectivity called ‘Miraie Connectivity’ by Panasonic. It has Alexa and Google Assistant support along with Auto Diagnosis- error codes will appear on display in case of errors and you can call the serviceman at that time. It consumes 70L water per wash program. Its noise level while washing is 59dB whereas while spinning it is 74dB. It has 2 years comprehensive and 10 years warranty on the motor.

Let’s talk about the pros and cons.

Pros
  • Panasonic is popular for its top load washing machines but this is the first time Panasonic has launched front load washing machines. It is a new model with good features and quality. But Panasonic is new which is both a pro and a con.

Cons
  • Con because service and spare part availability could be an issue in all the pin codes. There is no problem in metros. But non metros and 3 and 4 tier towns should avoid it.

4. IFB 8Kg

5 star washing machine with 2000W and 1400 RPM motor. It comes with 4D wash system. The drum will rotate in 4 directions for better cleaning. It comes with a built-in heater, 14 wash programs, stainless steel drum, and an Aqua Energie Water Softener Filter (it is a filter that you need to install separately but it is provided as a feature in it). I’ll tell you something about it later.

It has cradle wash which is for washing the clothes of infants. It has a tub clean feature which is very common in all front load washing machines these days. The uncommon feature is protective Rat Mesh- which is a net below the machine to protect it from rats. It has an LED touch panel which is good. It consumes 71L of water per wash program. Its noise level while washing is 56dB whereas while spinning it is 70dB. It has 4 years comprehensive and 10 years spare parts support (not motor warranty).

Let’s talk about very interesting pros and cons.

Pros
  • It has an Aqua Energie Water softener which softens the hard water for a good washing. Washed clothes will be soft which is good.

Cons
  • But it is also a disadvantage because IFB’s installation team is very poor. They sell the same water softener at 4 times the same price. Instead of buying from them, you can get it from the market or Amazon as it will not void the warranty.

  • 2nd con is its 71L high water consumption.

  • It just comes with 4 years comprehensive warranty and no motor warranty.

If you can ignore them, then links are given below to buy. Do check them.

3. Samsung 8Kg

It’s a Non-rated washing machine. It is non-rated because it has been imported from Vietnam. It has a 2200W and 1400 RPM motor. It comes with Digital Inverter technology. It comes with built-in heater, stainless steel drum, and 22 wash programs (one is 15 min quick wash). It comes with Eco Bubble Technology which creates foam to remove dirt easily.

It consumes 60L water per wash program. Its noise level while washing is 56dB whereas while spinning it is 70dB. It has 3 years comprehensive and 10 years warranty on the motor.

Let’s talk about the pros and cons.

Pros
  • This is a good machine with low noise and low vibration which is good.

Cons
  • There is a problem with the lack of pause and reload function which is essential in front load washing machines because it allows you to insert clothes later. This function is available in all the latest machines. This is not present in it. If that’s not a con for you then do check it. It is an amazing washing machine.

 2. LG 8Kg

5 star washing machine with 2100W and 1400 RPM motor. It comes with Inverter Direct Drive technology which will rotate the drum with 6 different motions. It comes with a built-in heater, stainless steel drum, and 30 wash programs. There are basic 14 basic wash programs and the rest programs can be downloaded from the LG ThinQ app. I’ll call it a marketing gimmick. It comes with a Steam wash which is good for washing the clothes of kids.

It has fuzzy logic technology sensors. These are 4 sensors for the door, laundry, water, and imbalance of the machine. These will stop the machine and restart from the point where it stopped. It has a child lock and protective rat mesh which is good. It comes with a smart diagnosis. In case of an error, an error code will appear on the LG ThinQ app. It has an auto restart option which means that the machine will restart from the point it stopped during the power cut. Auto-restart is available in all front load washing machines.

But it was essential to tell here because LG dishwashers don’t have an auto restart option. It has LG ThinQ wifi connectivity but not many features can be controlled by it. It has a waterproof LED touch panel with all controls. It consumes 60L water per wash program. Its noise level while washing is 54dB whereas while spinning it is 74dB. It has 2 years comprehensive and 10 years warranty on the motor.

Let’s talk about the pros and cons.

Pros
  • This is an amazing washing machine rather than the most successful one.

  • It has good services.

  • Last year’s motor issues have been resolved. LG has changed the motor.

Cons
  • Let’s talk about cons- practically there are 14 wash programs out of 30 and honestly, you would use a maximum of 4-5 programs in the front load washing machine. 30 is just an advertisement to attract more people.

  • Its wifi function is not of much use. If these are not concerns for you, then this is an amazing washing machine.

1. Bosch 8Kg

5 star washing machine with 2300W and 1400 RPM motor. It comes with Eco Silence Drive Motor with a built-in heater, stainless steel drum, 15wash programs, and an anti wrinkle program which washes clothes slowly in half time to prevent wrinkles. I can surely say that it comes with Anti-Vibration side panels because they are sturdy and made of good metal sheets. It has foam detection technology.

  • Its water consumption is less.

  • It has useful features and no gimmicks.

Cons
  • Now let’s talk about the things I don’t like about it. The length of the inlet pipe and power cord is short same as last year. If these are not cons for you (they wouldn’t have been for me), then links are given in the above. Do consider it.
