Way i see it is smaller stores pay less rent. And stores further away from the city centre pay still less. I suppose you will want to swap your top loader for a further reduction.Been to couple of more stores today and noticed the big stores like Vijay Sales or Chroma don't negotiate much on price. The sales guys here don't have much discounts to offer - its all managed by the store. Whereas the smaller stores like Arcee or Kohinoor, offer much better discounts (like 15%+).
There are not much Google reviews and whatever is there is mixed on these stores.
Does anyone have any personal experience dealing with the smaller ones like Arcee and Kohinoor electronics?
i don't have this turbo wash feature on my LG, maybe this is why the water pressure requirement has risen from 0.3 bar to 1 bar with LG machines that have this feature. 0.3 bar will handle 9ft tank above with ease.blr_p
The turbo wash (water sprayed directly at cloths) function never worked in my new LG and I guess that's due to the only 9 feet or so, tank distance from the machine inlet.
I am thinking of adding a pressure booster pump with a 24l to 50l air filled tank, that way the pump doesn't have to turn on each time some one uses water( the washing machine wash/rinse cycle or a bucket of water is no more then 25l)
Finally got the Siemens WM14T461IN from Croma (Seawoods).
They offered around 14% discount on MRP after exchange with old machine. Buying experience from Croma is below avg, their staff just don't understand customer service.
But, delivered next day as promised and installed within 48 hrs after delivery. The Siemens engineer also charged Rs. 300 for a bush required to fit the filter on the stopcock.
Also. had to get a 16A switch/socket installed by an electrician.
This is what I could find for BLDC in amazon-In Bosch and Siemens, with 7.5 kg and above you get brushless motor - its called iQDrive in Siemens and Eco Silence drive in Bosch.
The 8kg might be a newer variant of the 7kg. Check the dimensions.Funnily enough the Bosch 8 KG BLDC WAT24464IN model seems to be slightly cheaper than the 7 Kg WAK24268IN model. I guess the only advantage would be lower power draw as the motor warranty is 10 years for both machines.
New in marketing literature, not so new elsewhereSeems that way as the 7 Kg has a lot more reviews on Amazon compared to the 8 Kg one. BLDC is still pretty new I guess.
Couldn't find any release dates on the official website though.
Bosch & Siemens are the same company so whichever make you choose they will all have Siemens manufactured motors fitted to them. Reliability is good, their working life is far longer than brush motors. Their overall torque and speed control far superior and finally their noise level is far far quieter.
