Top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022

Despite your need and interest, the shopkeepers will always try to sell the washing machine that they want to sell. He will try to lure you irrespective of what you want n order to make maximum profit. As a result, you will end up buying the wrong washing machine which will cause dissatisfaction and frustration. All the money you spent will be entirely wasted. But not anymore! In this article, we bring to you the list of the top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022.

Front Load Washing Machines – Buying Guide

1. Which one should you buy- Front-load or top load?
Front-load washing machines use 40% less water and electricity as compared to top-load washing machines. Thus they are far better than top-load washing machines.

2. Capacity-
2.1. For 2-3 members of the family, a 6 KG washing machine is the best.
2.2. 7 Kg washing machines are the best for 3-4 members.
2.3. For up to 5 members of a family, an 8 Kg washing machine will suffice.
2.4. For more than 5 members, a 9/10 Kg washing machine is the most appropriate one.
*In this article, we will discuss 8 Kg front load washing machines.
The other size variants of these models are given in the VM-One Recommended washing machine list. You may check them as per your needs. The Washing machines we have recommended are washers and not dryers. Spinning the laundry will merely squeeze out water from the clothes. However, they must be dried in sun for 1-2 hours.


3. Power and water consumption of top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022-
Power and water consumption declared by the brands are per wash program. It is declared in accordance with one wash of 8Kg clothes. Approx a washing machine uses 0.5-0.75KwH power without heating. Usage of heater raises power consumption.

4. Rotation Per Minute (RPM)
RPM is recorded during spinning speed. More RPM means better spinning and better rinsing of clothes.

5. Accessories-
With washing machines come 1 inlet pipe, 1 outlet pipe, clamps, and an installation guide. Regulator and stand must be purchased separately as brands don’t give them. However, they can be purchased from the outside market rather than from the installation team. This will not hamper the warranty. Don’t be misguided by the installation team of any brand.

6. Adaptability as per the type of water-
For hard water, you may buy any washing machine. All you need to do is buy an attachment which costs around Rs 1000. Put it on the inlet. It will soften hard water and that is it.

7. De-Scaling of these top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022
De-scaling is essential in the case of hard water. It must be done once in 3 months for hard water and once in 6 months for normal water.

8. Number of Wash Programs-
 A huge amount of wash programs is just a marketing gimmick. Huge numbers attract us. But in reality, we use only 2-3 wash programs. Other wash programs are useless. Concentrate on features that are genuinely good. More wash programs have no benefits.

9. Water Pressure
For low water pressure, the front load washing machine is good but only if you are using it without a heater. For heating and quick wash, a pressure pump is essential.

10. Extended Warranty for these top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022-
Generally, brands give 2 years comprehensive and 10 years warranty on the motor. But is it enough? A good extended warranty package is a must for overall coverage. You can buy any package but we recommend Go Warranty.

Number two in our list of top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022 is IFB 8 Kg 5-star 2022 model with 1400 RPM motors. It comes with 4D wash programs, 14 wash programs, and a stainless steel drum- Crescent moon. The Crescent moon design increases friction for effective cleaning. Aqua Energie feature is a device that mixed detergent and water well. It enhances the wash quality.

IFB offers power steam wash. Auto Imbalance Vibration control is an amazing feature that does not let clothes cater at one place while spinning.

This enhances the extraction of water from clothes. It has a foam detection feature, unlike others. It will detect the excessive foam that hampers good wash and will remove it itself. More foam is formed due to the Aqua Energie feature. High low voltage protection feature is good as in India there is a lot of voltage fluctuation. The laundry adds option is also available till some time after starting of wash program.

The anti-crease cycle is a gimmick. IFB claims there will be no crease after the wash. We, however, don’t believe it. The delay start option allows you to program the washing machine for later use. It has an LED display and self-diagnosis. Error code will be displayed on display in case of an error. The noise levels while washing are 56 dB and while spinning are 70 dB. It consumes 71L of water per wash program and weighs 75 Kg.

*Along with 4 years comprehensive and 10 years warranty on motor, it also has 10 years spare part support. Samsung does not offer it but IFB has offered it. If a particular part fails, then you can purchase it and replace it easily. It costs Rs 34,000 which is a fantastic thing.

Top 5 Front Load Washing Machines in India

3. LG 8 Kg 5-star model- Top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022

Third, in the list of top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022 is LG 8 Kg 5-star model with 1400 RPM motor. It comes with an inverter direct-drive motor. A direct-drive motor with a drum is used to reduce power consumption and noise level but we couldn’t see such results in this LG machine. This machine is not bad. Direct Drive motors work well.

It has 14 wash programs but with the LG ThinQ app, 20 more wash programs can be downloaded. However, we only use 2-3 wash programs. It has stainless steel drum and 6 motion Direct Drive tech. This complicated term performs a simple and common function- the drum will rotate and hassle up clothes. All machines do this but LG has termed it as DD 6 motion which is a marketing gimmick.

Pros

Cons

  • It is good & has all features. Almost all brands provide such features.
  • The direct-drive motor is good but doesn’t have unique changes.
  • It weighs 60Kg whereas other machines weigh around 70Kg. The 10 Kg lesser weight is due to its not-so-sturdy body.
  • Its downloadable wash programs. It is not a feature that you can download 20 programs. The choice is yours.
  • It is over-prized. Rs 35,000 have been fine. Rs 39,000 is certainly too much.

Laundry can be put inside and programmed for wash later.

4. Samsung 8 Kg 5-star- Top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022

The fourth front load washing machine in our list of top 5 front load washing machines in India 2022 is Samsung 8 Kg 5-star model with 1400 RPM motors. It comes with digital inverter tech, 22 wash programs, and a stainless steel drum- diamond drum. A diamond drum means a diamond-shaped drum that creates friction for effective cleaning.

It has AI control. Samsung Smart Things app will remember your wash patterns and wash programs. Then it will recommend you the top picks and will also decide the spinning speed. AI control feature is good but not extraordinary. Almost all washing machines have different names. Eco bubble tech is merely a unique name. It means the machine creates more bubbles to extract more dirt.

Pros

Cons

  • It is good and has many features.
  • It doesn’t have the Pause N Reload function. Check as per your need.
  • The bigger con is that this machine is made in Vietnam. That is why Samsung gives 3 years warranty to build trust. Manufacturing in Vietnam raises the issue of the availability of spare parts. Samsung has given 10 years warranty on the motor but what about other parts?
  • Its built quality is not that sturdy.
