With its Inverter Direct Drive motor, the LG FH0FANDNL02 guarantees you longevity and a more silent operation than any of the ordinary washing machines (no more will your washer vibrate as it where haunted).
That is because such motors eliminate pulleys and belts and are directly connected to a drum. Lesser parts mean lesser breakdowns and even lesser noise.
It also makes the washer one of the most energy-efficient models since less electricity is needed to get the parts moving (never hurts when you save a few bucks on the electricity bills, right?).
Does the thought of washing your child’s muddy clothes gives you nightmares or is your and hubby’s white uniforms you are more worried about?
Either way, the LG can handle it all as it is armed with the 6 Motion Direct Drive technology.
This includes scrubbing, rolling, tumbling, filtration, stepping, and swing to give you clothes just as fresh and soft as new (no stains too tough for this bad boy).
Furthermore, for such stains and to maintain health quotient, you can also give the clothes a wash in 60-degrees water with the in-built heater.
Also, from wool, silk to cotton, with multiple washing modes like delicate, wool, baby care the washers can clean all kinds of clothes without harming the fabric.
These modes also include a Quick wash for the light soiled clothes and will give clean clothes in just 30-minutes.
Plus, since it is based on fuzzy logic, the machine automatically uses the required amount of electricity and washing powder based on the load further saving you a few more bucks.
This is a one of a kind feature that helps LG standout from the pack and makes diagnosing problems a breeze.
All you need to do is download the SmartThinQ App and make a call LG customer services. Now, place the phone on the appliance and voila, in minutes, you will the problem and solution on your mobile.

The stainless steel drum does not corrode and will last you for years to come. Cleaning both the tub and drum is easy as it comes with auto tub cleaner.
The water is heated to about 85-degrees for the cleaning as it eliminates all kinds of bacteria while the 1000rpm speed ensures all the water is rinsed out in quick-time.
Power cuts can be a real pain in India but not for this washing machine at least as this restarts from exactly where it stopped without pressing a button.
The touch panel is really easy to use and is waterproof so you do not have to dry your hands before using it.
This washer has a 6.5kg capacity which as a general rule of thumb means it can wash 25 t-shirts at one time which make it ideal for a family of 3 or couples.
There really isn’t much I can fault about his washing machine except that is does not have a hard water softener.
So if you live in an area with hard water, I would you can check out washing machines with in-built water softener at our post on the best washing machines in India.
It is also more expensive than other 6.5kgs washing machine but also much more advanced and easy to use and thus worth its price tag.

- Fully-automatic top load washing machine: Affordable with great wash quality, Easy to use
- Capacity 6.5 kg :Suitable for families with 3 to 4 members
- Warranty: 2 years on product, 10 years on motor
It is one of the few top load washers to feature an inverter motor which is a huge money saver in the long run as it is energy efficient and also less noisy.
Furthermore, the motor has a BMC protection which fully covers the motor preventing any kind of dust, rodents or corrosion from impairing its functioning.
The turbo drum gives the clothes a rigorous wash without harming the fabric as it utilizes a strong stream of water and pulsator jet that move in opposite directions.
Plus, there are 3 mini pulsators as well that move the clothes up and down (so even stains like wine, chocolate or grease will not bother you anymore).
There are also wash programs like Pre Wash and gentle for Sarees and wools and special programs like Strong and Quick wash.
The side waterfall prevents detergent residue on clothes by mixing it up efficiently so you do not have to worry about skin irritation and allergies that detergents can cause.
And the best thing of all is that this LG washer also is based on Fuzzy Logic which means it will automatically set the timer and amount of water, electricity and detergent need as per the load.
Just like its front-loading brother, you get to enjoy the benefits of the SmartThinQ App with this.
It allows you to download wash programs and repair around 86 programs all by yourself with detailed instructions (no longer to do you have to for and pay technical staff).
When you pay big, you would want your money’s worth, isn’t? Well, with a Stainless Steel drum that does not corrode, BMC motor protection and tempered glass door, the LG will last you well beyond its warranty.
Oh, and the tempered glass door not only gives you a view of the whole twisting and turning on the inside but also has a smart soft-close so it does not bang and crack or break.
You get the automatic restart function here as well so when it comes to washing clothes, power cuts are not a worry.
The time delay lets you set the wash program between the next 3-18 hours so you can have the clothes washed while you enjoy the movie or are at the office, meeting, etc.
It also very sleek and lightweight and thus should easily fit in your balcony or bathroom without overcrowding it and can be moved from one to another with ease (perfect for people living on rent).
At 700rpm spinning speed, the drying is also quicker than cheaper top load washers whether it is clothes you are drying or using the auto tub clean feature to keep it and, in turn, your clothes smelling fresh.
On the downsides, it will cost you much higher than some of the other top load washer but nonetheless, it is still cheaper than front load washers.
There is also no heater so it does not sterilize your clothes like the front loader above buy you could always use an external water heater.

#3: Samsung WA62M4100HY/TL (Budget Pick)
Looking for an efficient and effective washing machine on the cheap? The Samsung WA62M4100HY/TL is just that (no wonder it is a best-seller).
- Samsung Fully-automatic top load washing machine; 6.2 kg Best Wash Quality and Water efficient
- Product Warranty: 2 years comprehensive warranty on product and 10 years on motor
- 680 rpm: Higher spin speeds helps in faster drying
One of the most unique features of this Samsung washing machine is its Diamond Drum where the holes are about 25% smaller than before and have an embossed washboard.
This is especially helpful when washing delicate clothes because they do not get stuck into the drum while the special embossing keeps it gentle on the clothes.
But at the same time, it gives a wash rough enough to remove even the most the stubborn of stains with its center Pulsator jet which prevents clothes from tangling and 5 level spray.
These sprays help dissolve the detergent better so there isn’t any residue and the washer uses less water (no damage and 100% clean clothes, you really could not have asked for more).
Furthermore, it also has multiple washing modes. So whether you wanted to give the clothes a quick wash, soak them, etc. there is a mode for all clothes.
Lastly, there is a lint collector at the bottom and it is this placement that makes it so efficient at entrapping everything even at low water levels.
This means you get the same washing results with each cycle even if you have a lesser load to run.
And when the lint filter needs cleaning the indicator light lets you know about it so there is no guesswork involved.
Not just washing, the dryer is just as equally good at drying as well which comes down to its Turbo Drying System (they are so dry, you can iron them straight out of the washer).
The turbo dryer is so powerful that it also completely dries out the tub after you run the auto tub clean feature. This prevents the growth of mildew so both your washer and clothes remain clean and germ-free.
Even with the tub cleaning, there is no guesswork needed as there is a special indicator for that as well which saves you both time and water
With the Auto Restart feature, you no longer have to worry about power cuts, the machine restarts automatically from the same settings without needing your attention.
The tempered glass door gives you a clear view of all the action inside and does not crack easily under pressure. It is also scratch resistant and thus will easily last you for years.
Being a top load washer, it is also much easier to place than front load washers as they take up lesser space. And its 6.2kg capacity makes this the perfect washing for any couple with a low budget.
It is not as advanced as the LG washer since it does not come with a smart diagnosis.
There is also no in-built heater so you will need to use an external source if you want to give the clothes a hot water wash.
