Free Standing

Freestanding is the most commonly used washing machine. They can be fitted anywhere or left standing on their own at the place you want and attach it to a waste pipe to drain the water.

Front Loading

There are two types of loading:

  • Front Loading: It allows you to add the laundry by opening the door which requires slightly more space than the top loading machines. If your laundry room is small in space, this washer can be stacked.The space required to open the door may vary with the door opening angle which is normally 90 to 180 degree.
  • Top Loading: In this type of loading you have to add your laundry from the top. Some top-loading machines still provide you the freedom of adding laundry even after the cycle has started.The door can be detachable or fixed in this type of loading unlike front loading washing machines.
  • Fully Automatic

    There are two types of washing machines

  • Fully Automatic : In this type of washing machine no manual intervention is required because you just need to add the laundry manually and rest of the work is done automatically. Fully automatic machines can either be front loading or top loading.
  • Semi Automatic : This is the most commonly used washing machines in India. As the name shows it's a partially automatic machine.This type of machines are generally top loading because they have two separate tubs for washing and drying. In this type of washing machine you have to add the required amount of water manually. Also the washed clothes from the washer tub to spin tub needs to be added manually.

    The Senorita Aqua SX comes with some amazing features like auto restart, self-diagnosis, multiple spin options, child lock, rat mesh to keep away the rodents, foam control system and auto imbalance system.The 3D Wash system which evenly distributes water at 360 degrees and removes stains with utmost diligence. Crescent shape moon drum prevents the clothes from rubbing against the wall of steel drum reducing wear and tear on clothes during a wash. It even comes with a special built in Aqua filter  that treats hard water and improves the life and performance of the washing machine.

    With over 100 programs for wash this machine is apt for all kinds of clothes. The machine consumes 43 Ltr of water with energy consumption of 0.93 KWH for wash program duration of 33 to 134 minutes.

    Design- This sturdy washing machine comes in a classy looking silver color, weighs 71kg and has dimensions of 675 x 570 x 880 mm and has a 7 segment LED display. It looks very stylish and can complement any home.  One doesn’t have to bend too much to put clothes inside the machine.

There is also an extended support for 10 years in which if you need replacement of spare part that will be done free of charge. You have to incur only the cost of the spare part. The rest including service and fitting charges will be borne by organization.

    Performance, Two wash tests were done on this machine. First with six pairs of clothes. One scoop of any matic detergent is enough. We normally opt for Surf Excel matic or Ariel Matic. Since the clothes were not sensitive or woolen, timer was set for 1 hour. After one hour, clothes came  out clean and fresh ready for drying out in the sun or in a dryer.

     Next wash test was on undergarments and timer was set for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes when checked all undergarments were washed perfectly. There was no sign of wear and tear. Even bed sheets, curtains,wollens  can be washed conveniently in the machine.

    Cleaning the machine is also very easy. You may use IFB Essentials Descal to remove limescale deposited by water due to continuous wash from machine parts after thirty-forty washes. This powder is a little expensive as one time wash with Descal cost Rs. 160.

    Noise –IFB make little noise which will indicate that a motor is running but not to level of disturbance. Also once wash is complete the timer goes off only once. It can be a disadvantage to those people who needs constant reminder that the washing is done.

    Disadvantages

    -The Washing machines requires cleaning with a descale powder after 30 washes and it is an added expense.

    -It cannot be easily transported if you move homes due to it's weight.

    -Also across various online portals,  feedback indicates a general dissatisfaction about the service given by the company.

    Summary

    With excellent wash performance and brilliant wash care programs, this sturdy machine is a boon especially for working women or those who do not have help.
