2. LG F1496TDA 8kg Front Load Washing Machine

Like the last one, you will have to spend quite a bit to be able to afford this washing machine but once the purchase is made, you won’t have to look for an upgrade for a decade at the least.
LG F1496TDA boasts some nifty features to go with its hefty price tag but that is to be expected. Question is, how do they hold up in real life? The answer is simple: as advertised.
The machine is the very definition of reliability is one of the most cost-efficient purchases you can make. There are more costly machines out there – some from LG itself – but there is little question that this is their premier product.

All in One Top Loading
3. Samsung WA16J6750SP/SG Active Dual Wash 16Kg Top Load Washing Machine
Price: Pakistani Rs. 80,000/-
The Samsung Active Dual Wash comes in different models varying in wash capacity. If you are not concerned about wash capacity than its better to go with the lower wash capacity version as the other features remain largely the same.
This is a top loader so adding in clothes mid-cycle is extremely easy. The top of the washer is filled with lots of different options to customize your wash settings. There are different settings for different types of clothes which is a godsend for most people. You don’t have to worry about changing the settings every time you wash a batch of whites vs when you wash coloured clothes; the machine will do it for you.
On top of that, the buttons are all waterproof so you don’t have to worry about water messing up the electronics. It is an all around great purchase. Though it is on the lower spectrum of high-end machines, it comes with all the necessary features and convenience you can expect from this price range.
Mid Range Washing Machines
4. Samsung WW60J3263 with Diamond Drum with Ecobubble 6kg Front Load Automatic
Price: Pakistani Rs. 56,900/-
The Samsung WW60J3263 is king when it comes to efficiency in the mid-range. The machine comes with a plastic body and an elegant design. It comes with different wash settings for different types of clothes.
One of the key features of the Samsung WW60J3263 is the eco bubble. This is a feature that allows the machine to wash clothes with high efficiency at low temperatures. As low as 15 degrees and you get the same quality of washing you would get if you washed using a regular machine and scalding hot water. This saves up on energy consumption since you don’t have to heat up washing water beforehand.
It also comes with Quick Wash, a nifty feature that allows you to quickly wash a small batch of clothes in half the time it would take for a full load. It is incredibly useful when you only have a small set of dirty clothes that need washing.
5. Super Asia SA-606-AFW 6kg Fully Automatic Front Load Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 48,000/-
If you are looking for reliability in this price range you can’t go wrong with Super Asia SA-600-AFW. The machine is fully automatic, meaning there is nothing manual in it besides pouring the water-in and waiting for it to finish washing. There are different settings for different scenarios.
It comes with a 6 kg capacity, meaning it can take a medium-sized load without too much trouble. It won’t be enough for a busy household and you might have to do the cycle twice.

6. LG T8507TEFT0 9kg Top Load Automatic Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 49,500/-
This is one of the most complete washing solutions in this price range that you’re likely to find on the market. It comes in two main versions. 9 kg and 12 kg, you can decide your needed wash space depending on your needs.
This is an automatic washing machine which means it comes with a built-in control panel. Everything can be done with a push of a button. There are multiple wash settings for different purposes and cloth types.
One of the main features of the machine is the Diamond Drum feature. It allows the machine to use its drum and swing in two directions during a wash. This prevents the clothes in the washer from being tangled and extend their lifespan significantly.
The Punch +3 pulsator is another feature in the LG T8507TEFTO that allows the machine to become that much better at stain removal. Water is pushed vertically to improve the surface area of the clothes that is in its effective range. The water being pushed or ‘pulsated’ as they call it is, of course, infused with detergents.
7. Haier HWM120-1678 Top Loading Fully Automatic Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 48,500/-
This is a high-efficiency washing solution that you can’t go wrong with. The Haier HWM120-1678 is a top loading dryer washer combo that falls comfortably in the mid 50k range.
This washer boasts an anti-bacterial wash system. Which means that the mildew that is likely to set-in in an old machine cannot happen here due to a specialized AMT gasket. This prevents the stale smell that some old washing machines end up with after a long life span.
The Haier HWM120-1678 also comes with the Foam detection feature. This allows the machine to detect the foam in the machine at any given time. Including at the end of each wash. This makes sure that at the end of each wash the wash doesn’t end until all the foam on the clothes is washed away. Detergent stains that form on clothes are due to leftover foam after a wash and this way since there is no more foam, there is no more detergent stains.
As with all machines in this price range, this washing machine comes with a control panel filled with different wash modes for different types of clothes. You can decide how intensive the wash has to be. There are also pre-set modes for different clothes that prevent you having to re-configure the machine every time.
Budget Washing Machines in Pakistan
Since we are now in the lower price range bracket of the washing machines available in Pakistan. We have to lower our expectations a bit. We can’t be looking for the state of the art features since the machines that boast that kind of stuff within this price range are either lying outright or cutting corners. So instead, here we focus on reliability more than amazing features that would blow us away.
8. Dawlance DWF-1100A Top Load Fully Automatic Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 25,000/-
When it comes to reliability in Pakistan few have Dawlance beat in that regard. This is especially true since Dawlance is one of the most famous brands in the region and has a very strong support system to support its products after the purchase is made. This allows for more readily available repair staff for when and if the machine breaks. The ready availability of parts that may eventually stop functioning. And the ability to claim a warranty without having to go through international channels.
As for the machine itself, it is a solid piece of machinery that will get the job done. Interestingly enough, it comes with a neat little feature of Power Resumption. This means that if the electricity goes out during the middle of a wash, the Dawlance DWF-1100A will resume its power cycle after the power comes back online. This is especially useful for us living in Pakistan since load shedding is, at this point, an expected part of the day. This is added convenience of not having to restart the wash cycle is what tipped the balance in the favour of this machine for us.
9. Super Asia SA-608AWR 6kg Fully Automatic Top Load Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 17,000/-
Super Asia is an old brand in Pakistan and one that has a long history of being reliable and long-lasting. The Super Asia SA-608AWR is a fully automatic washing machine that comes with all of the basic features you can expect in a washing machine in this price range.
For a budget washing machine, this one comes with a lot of different features. These include an Aqua Inner Drum which is a custom shaped inner drum that allows clothes in a wash to have the maximum amount of contact with the drum during a wash. This speeds up the wash process so it takes up less time.
In this version, the dehydration holes in the drum are also very small so that clothes don’t get stuck and end up having abrasions and a short lifespan. While this may seem like a small change and a no-brainer, you’d be surprised by how many washing machines still have this feature.
This machine is big on flipping clothes mid-wash. Meaning a lot of effort has gone into making sure that clothes are fully rinsed and washed and the detergent gets into every nook and cranny possible. This is done by using the S-Pulsator technology which alters the shape of inner drum to facilitate this.
Note: Front Loading machines are usually a bit more pricey so if you’re looking for a good Front Loader you’re better off looking in the mid-range section rather than settling for something that cut a lot of corners to meet the price range while being a front loader.

10. Dawlance DW-5100 Single Tub Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 10,600/-
If you’re only looking for something to get the job done and are willing to put in a bit of manual effort, this washing machine will get the job done admirably. There is no control panel nor any preset modes to facilitate easier washing. You will need to know the ins and outs of the washing process since it’s not the most user-friendly of models.
It is a single tub, so be aware of that. It also a one-piece plastic body, which means it takes up little space so if your house is struggling for laundry space this can help ease the burden. The washing tub, however, is massive and is more than enough for two loads of wash.
Although the machine boasts low noise during operations we found this to be only somewhat true in some cases.
11. Super Asia SA-320 Single Tub 6kg Washing Machine
Price: Rs. 11,800/-
The entire focus of the Super Asia SA-320 is reliability. From its galvanized steel metal body to its sturdy inner drum, its all about being in it for the long haul. What this means is that this is the type of machine that will last you a lifetime – if you can live with the bare minimum of features that is. There are no fancy knobs here nor different settings for different types of clothes. This is a single tub product though with a respectable 6 kg space inside.
The body is made to be able to fit in small places. It is a convenient product to have at hand if you are running low on space in your household. The machine also boasts a Double Action Pulsator meant to bring that extra oomph to your washing cycle and get rid of those hard to remove stains.
If you are looking for something to last you a long while and don’t mind not having the latest and greatest, this is the machine for you.
