Amongst the top load washing machines Whirlpool is one of the few having models with a built in-heater to provide cleaner washes.

Unlike other most washing machines, this model comes with an attractive/different look. Would highly recommend this machine if a good front load washing machine is outside of your budget. Check for service center close to your place and service fees, before you purchase.

9 . IFB 6.5 kg Fully-Automatic Top Loading Washing Machine (TL-RDS/RDSS Aqua, Sparkling Silver, Aqua Energie water softener)

This machine is quite from specifications perspective. Quite a few people have purchased and reviews have been mixed. It is on the list for that reason. Be aware of delivery issues and customer service availability, especially outside of major cities. It is sad to see the IFB reputation on quality and customer service nose dive after Samsung and LG have entered the market. If there was no deterioration, based on earlier washing machines would have been first few recommended. It comes with one extra year warranty at 3 years for product. Warranty on motor is same most others at 10 years.

Conclusion:

We have reviewed 10 best top loading machines based on multiple criteria of quality of machine & washes, delivery and customer service, features provided and value for money. Based on that recommend Samsung, LG as for the first two spots. Samsung model is in first place because of value for money. Otherwise LG machines also contend for first spot. There is tie for next level recommendation between Bosch and Whirlpool – mainly because of delivery and customer service availability in across all areas of the country. Otherwise Whirlpool is in 3rd and Bosch in close 4th place.

As most do not have hot water feature in top load machines, reviewed 2 good machines from Whirlpool. These are at 5th and 6th place because of being slightly more expensive, but lower than front load washing machines. These are good buys if your budget and/or preference does not allow for the more expensive front load machines.

Rest in ranking are average machines, with their share of mainly customer service and quality issues, but check them out Godrej, IFB, Haier and AmazonBasics.
