Top critical review
not very happy
7 December 2018
I am writing this review after using my IFB front load for 6 years and then switching to LG front load.
my IFB wasing machine bearing problem came just after 4 years. i did not get it rectify as it was costing 4K..i left it as such. but it was working fine with fault until now then PCB fault came which was costing another 4k. so i thought of discarding this one and getting the new one.
this time i wanted to go for LG for better customer support and device reliability as suggested by various forums and personal experience with LG fridge, microwave and 2-3 year old washing machines with relatives.
after purchasing LG washing machine i have found the major issues which might be of concern to someone:
1. the drum quality of IFB is way better than LG
2. The touch screen of LG washing machine may not be reliable for the long run
3. in child lock mode, the machine can be stopped from the front panel. next time if you want to run the program, it will not start from where you left. this is a big issue for me because my kid will more frequently switch off the machine. everytime i have restart the program.
one more thing i want to add is that recently i did normal drum clean, inlet hose clean & filter clean operation for my relatives LG washing machine. for this i opened the top bonnet and seen inside. I found IFB is much better and systematic in comparison to LG.
but because of there bad service IFB is loosing craze these days. They design products that just last till warranty period.
