Which One is Best in LG Vs. IFB Washing Machine?

In built-design: LG Vs IFB

The in-built design and used material play an important role in the durability of the washing machines. The chassis of the washing machine is generally made of steel and coated with a specific material like zinc to prevent corrosion and the inner tub is made of stainless steel. The outer case is made of plastic, it is not bad because used plastic material has also good durability and it makes the product lightweight.

LG and IFB both are made from good materials for high durability. The LG Washing machine models are made of good stainless steel material. The tub guard, water pump, and drum housing are made from plastics. Similarly, the IFB washing machine chassis offers great stability and the inner wash tub is made of stainless steel that prevents rust and provides good durability to the washing machine.

If we compare the same capacity models of LG and IFB washing machines then we can say that IFB offers more portability than LG while in the case of RPM, the LG has the upper hand. As we know that high RPM means fast-drying, so LG has the clean edge for high RPM.

The design of both washing machines is fabulous and the sleek design provides a premium look to washing machines. The operating panel of the washing offers an easy-to-operate service. If we compare the control panel of both brands then we can say that the LG control panel is fairly easy to operate than the IFB washing machine control panel.

Features and Functions: LG Vs IFB

Energy Efficiency

Almost all models of LG and IFB washing machines come with a star energy rating. There is no doubt that these star ratings show the energy efficiency of a product but do not mean that it is the only way you can save your money, proper cleaning and caring also help you to save your money and enhance the productivity of the product and it is also true for washing machines. A three-star energy rating washing machine can deliver more productivity if you protect the washing machine from dust, direct sunlight, and do proper caring of its motor, so do not only purchase due to high ratings, other features are also important.

Noise Level

When we compared the noise (dB) and drum vibrations then LG performance seems better due to its inverter technology, but it is not far ahead of the IFB noise level. The multiple movements of the drum produce noise in all models but all top brands try to reduce the noise level, we can say that these two brands are good stand on this parameter.

Wash Function

Nowadays many brands offer a large set of wash functions, even up to 30, according to me it looks like a marketing strategy instead of practical use. Because most consumers use a maximum of 8-10 wash functions and it is well enough for the best quality result. Both offer a wide range of wash functions for all types of fabrics according to capacity and price segment. We could not find any bigger difference in wash function varieties, the only name of wash function has changed but both washing machines offer a similar type of wash function for clothes.

Technology 

Both brands come with various technologies and offer similar types of mechanisms apart from some key differences that are inbuilt heater, smart diagnose auto restart, auto tub clean. The LG washing machine is equipped with direct drive technology that reduces vibration noise and offers a more smooth washing experience while the IFB washing machine offers express washing technology and a softener cleaning mechanism for best wash quality even for higher PH value (hard) water.

Price: LG Vs IFB

Prices vary according to capacity and technology if we compare 6kg capacity the LG price is slightly higher than the IFB washing machine, but when we move upper for higher capacity we found that there is a very narrow gap between prices. LG comes with advanced features like wi-fi connectivity and offers a wide range of varieties that would be flexible for you to choose the right one while medium capacity like 6-7kg IFB  offers more budget options with a great warranty.

Post-Sales Service: LG Vs IFB

LG has been offering its services for a long time and has a wide network of service centers so LG has a deeper reach than IFB. IFB has been expanding its service center and in the last three years it has done fabulous but still, IFB has to go longer, but for all metro cities, it has a sufficient number of service centers.
