I have to buy front loading fully automatic washing machine.
My previous one was IFB which worked decently for 8 years before been down smile
Now I need to buy a new one.
Heard a lot about Bosch, so wanted to check from real users whether IFB is good or Bosch?
Also if any particular model you can recommend in 6kg or 6.5kg

Also if possible buy from reliance digital to get best offer….their Resq plans for service and warranty are very good

I am in Delhi so service is not an issue. LG somehow I am not inclined due to bad experience in their Fridge and AC. I am opting between IFB and Bosch

Why specifically Reliance digital? Flipkart also provides the same warranty plan

Wow thats great, my IFB has completed 8 years. Few minor repairs till now which costed 2K.

Now water inlet has problems so water not coming in automatically, and we did not opted for spending more money as IFB executive told last time that it has rusted from inside thats why sometime black dirt particles coming in clothes occasionally – he said use it until it work then do not spend more money on repair, thats why we did not opted for repair.

Does local mechanics repair it better and in less cost? I may again go for repair if 1K can make it working for another 1 yr or so (rather than spending 25k) smile

Can’t say… each repair was independent of the other… so ended up paying for it… Hopefully it lasts for 3-4yrs sad

If you want to repair ..then take contact number of Resq servicing person from reliance digital and ask him to attend your machine problem…

IFB=BOSCH>LG. IFB has great service when compared with LG. The recent model IFB Senotor wxs is great.

I understand that, but what i normally do is that i go to a local showroom spend 1-2 hours there to find the perfect company and model number and than buy it during sales on amazon or flipkart.
Now it may seem unfair to local showroom but those guys have overcharged me and my family for years so a little payback is ok.

Ok. Called few local washing machine repair guys, they will charge Rs 250 for home visit and then additional cost of parts/repair.
Let me check with IFB custcare whats their visit costs, etc, then will decide.

But looking at your 18 yrs IFB machine life, I am definitely planning to get it repaired (or atleast get quotes for repair).

Ifb have a great after sales service and a very competitive brand specially witlh washing machine.
They also give 4 year warranty
And they maintain the spare parts of their old models so it’s easy to get them repaired.
