    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.

    Serena Aqua SX : Front Loading
    WM12K268IN : Front Loading
    FH0B8QDL22 : 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.
  • WAK24269IN : 1200 rpm
    Serena Aqua SX : 1000 rpm
    WM12K268IN : -
    FH0B8QDL22 : No Spin/400/800/1000 rpm
    This is the speed in which the washing machine will spin for drying your clothes during the cycle. The larger the spin speed the more water will be expelled during a cycle. Spin speeds are measures in revolutions per minute (RPM).It is the washing machine's fastest spin speed. Normally the spin speed is 1000 or 1200 rpm and the fastest spin speed can be 1400 to 1800 rpm but a washing machine with a slightly faster spin speed than the normal speed does not make much difference in drying clothes but the time required to remove water from clothes may vary with the spin speeds.

    This feature prevents your clothes from creasing while they lie in the machine. It is useful while washing delicate clothes like synthetic,silks, etc. which tend to crease more and need to be removed immediately after the spin cycle is over. As the name shoes this functionality does not allow the water to drain from the drum after the end of the spin cycle. It is upto the user to empty the drum, the rinse hold button can be pressed again and the machine will start draining the water and proceeds the drying cycle.

    We've all done it – left a sock on the stairs, then realised it's too late because the wash cycle started. Or perhaps you've put a red garment into a white wash by mistake. Now there's a solution to this problem: the Reload Function. It allows you to open the door early in the cycle to add or remove the offending items.
