    But my problem is that frequent power cut in my area, and i've heard that it consumes lots of power & water.

    So kindly help me to choose good BRAND for washing machine.

    i guess you wont be having the issues in Top load when you have the frequent power cut and easy to handle
    the only issue with the Front load , its consumes water and problem in the frequent power cut

    go for IFB and wait for the experts to share the information

    Thnx guddu, any specific model?

    u mean TOP loading = fully automatic ?

    ^
    What are these terms: Impeller & agitator ?

    just now i read pros, cons and i found this:

    TOP LOADING WASHING MACHINE

    This is the most common type of washing machine. Clothes are placed into the top of the washer, and a lid closed over the top. There are two types, an agitator and an impeller. First, here are general points about top loaders:
    Pros

    Generally cheaper than front loaders.
    No fuss to throw more clothes in the wash midway through cycle.
    Faster wash cycle.
    Lighter weight.
    Biggest range available - especially large capacity washing machines.
    It can be moved easily from one place to another.

    Cons

    Water hungry
    Rougher on clothes

    Need extra space to open lid - not suitable for every laundry
    Not all Top loading washing machines come with a built in heater.

    @Kool. Earlier IFB was the leader when it comes to Washing Machines but now we find good ones from brands like Whirlpool, Samsung and LG. I currently have LG which has been working well for almost 3 years now. Top Loading consumes more water as compared to Front Loading. but I think Front Loaading sometimes has an issue with it's outlet getting bad. Considering your budget it's better to go for Front Loading.

    My budget is Rs.10,000 only (but i can increase 2k extra) No, i dont wanna spend on front loading. So tell me abt only semi-automatic or fully automatic.

    One thing I can think of right away is in Semi-Automatic you have two sections. One is for washing and the other for drying. So midway you need to manually transfer the clothes to the other section for drying.

    Automatic washing washing machienes hav digital timers and control so more cost of its control ckt, semi automatic ones hav simple spring timers.
    Buy automatic machiene only if u hav plenty of softwater supply.

    In PATNA, its soft water only. OK guys, i think u all are right. I should go for Automatic WM. so Now tell me some best brand with 2-3year warranty & sales service.

    By d way, what should i choose: Agitator or Impeller?
