Whirlpool Ace Supreme is a modern and high-tech semi-automatic washing machine. It has a capacity of 7.5 Kgs, which makes it perfect for all kinds of users. Let them be bachelors, couples, or families.

Based on our tests, we have ranked it #1 as the best semi automatic washing machine under 10000 rupees. It is powered by a 1400 RPM motor. It is swift and will dry your clothes in no time. Make sure that you do not put them into the drier for too long, as the fabric can get damaged quickly at such speeds.

There are 3 wash modes on this device, and they are Normal, Delicate, and Heavy. Their names are self-explanatory, so I will not go into the details of explaining their functions.

To get rid of small hair and fluffs, it has a Lint Filter. It will collect all such residues, and stop them from going into its pores and creating a blockage. So, after each wash not only will your clothes be clean, but also your washing machine.

2. Best Runner Up: Godrej WS Edge CLS

Godrej 7.2 Kg Semi-Automatic Top Loading Washing Machine (WS EDGE CLS 7.2 PN2 M WNRD, Wine Red)
TypeSemi-Automatic
Access LocationTop
Energy Efficiency3 star
Capacity7.2 Kg
Top Speed1440 RPM
Weight29 Kg
Warranty5 years

Godrej WS Edge CLS is a semi-automatic top loading washing machine. The reason it has been included on this list is its build quality. Godrej WS Edge CLS is made from steel, which gives it an edge over its competitors. Usually, products in this price range are made from plastic, which is good, but not as reliable as stainless steel.

The capacity of this WS Edge is 7.2 Kg, which is perfect. It can be used by couples, small families, and bachelors.

You will find 3 wash modes on the control menu of this washing machine. They are Strong, Regular, and Drain. Strong and Gentle are to be used to wash clothes, while Drain is to dry them.

On the wash timer, you will see an active soak period in this washing machine. During this phase, the motor will stop and will allow the detergent to be soaked completely by clothes. After this timer ends, it will start to rotate on its own. This will help in much better cleaning of clothes.

The body of this washing machine is rust-free. It will not corrode any time soon. This characteristic will come in handy if you live in an area where humidity is high throughout the year.

You can get the Godrej WS Edge for about 9600 Rupees, and it comes with a warranty of 2 years. This warranty extends to 5 years on its motor. If you ask us, it’s the best quality washing machine in terms of build.

  • Very easy to use

3. Fully Automatic Washing Machine: AmazonBasics

AmazonBasics 6.5 kg Fully-Automatic Top Load Washing Machine (Grey/Black, Full Metal body, LED Display)
TypeFully-Automatic
Access LocationTop
Capacity6.5 Kg
Top Speed700 RPM
WeightNot mentioned
Warranty3 years

This is the only washing machine on our list that is fully automatic. All the other products on this list are semi-automatic, so this is your only option for a fully automatic washing machine under 10000 to 12000 rupees budget.

It has a capacity of 6.5 Kgs, which makes it incompatible for families. I would recommend it to couples and bachelors only. A washing machine’s capacity has to be more than 7 Kgs for it to be ideal for a family, small or large.

Its build quality is nothing short of amazing. Everything from its drum to the outer body has been made from stainless steel. This results in less vibration and noise.

There are a total of 10 wash programs on this washing machine, and they are Normal, Delicates, Jeans, Mini Wash, Intensive, Bulky, Quick, and Drum Dry. Apart from the last one, all of these are to wash clothes of one kind or the other.

One-Touch wash mode of this washing machine will allow you to wash clothes very quickly. Just put the laundry in, and the machine will automatically detect the wash cycle it needs based on its weight. This feature will help people who are inexperienced in washing clothes.

Additional features that you will like in this product are Automatic Tub Cleaning, Delay Start Function, Rat Cover Protection, and Child Lock Mode.

Its price is a bit on the upper side of 10k, but it is worth every Rupee. It is the most affordable fully automatic washing machine, so I think you can afford to spend a couple of thousands extra if you want one.

Pros
  • Most inexpensive fully automatic machine
  • Very easy to operate
  • Numerous wash modes
  • 3 years of warranty on motor
  • Build quality is terrific

4. Best for Brand Value: Samsung WT725QPNDMPXTL

Samsung 7.2 kg Semi-Automatic Top Loading Washing Machine (WT725QPNDMPXTL, White and Blue, Center Jet Pulsator)
TypeSemi-Automatic
Access LocationTop
Capacity7.2 Kg
Top Speed1000 RPM
Weight24 Kg
Warranty2 years

This washing machine from Samsung is a conventional semi-automatic washing machine. It does not have any fancy features and is there to get the job done.

The machine is powered by a motor that has a maximum speed of 1000 RPM, so it packs quite a punch. It will wash and dry your laundry in the minimum amount of time possible.

Like all other semi-automatic washing machines, this one also has 3 wash modes. They are Normal, Intensive, and Delicate. Use intensive for washing heavy items such as curtains and bedsheets, reserve the other two for your own clothes.

If you have to remove some stains by hand, use its wash tray. It is installed on top of its dryer and drum, so you won’t have to bend over to get rid of those stubborn stains.

The build quality of the machine is mediocre. It is made from hardened plastic, which is prone to scratches. So, keep it away from any sharp objects and handle it with care.

Some of the other features of this washing machine are Buzzer (after each cycle ends), Lint Filter for collecting small hair and dust, Air Turbo Drying System for faster drying, and 4 Wheels for ease of movement.

You can get this Samsung washing machine for about 9900 Rupees, and it comes with a warranty of 2 years.

5. Good Washing Machine Under 10000: Whirlpool ACE Supreme Plus

Whirlpool 7.2 Kg Semi-Automatic Top Loading Washing Machine (ACE SUPREME PLUS 7.2, Coral Red, Ace Wash Station)
TypeSemi-Automatic
Access LocationTop
Capacity7.2 Kg
Top Speed1400 RPM
Weight28 Kg
Warranty5 years

Whirlpool makes some of the most reliable washing machines, and this model is no different. Whirlpool ACE Supreme Plus might look like any other semi-automatic machine, but it is much better, thanks to its amazing features.

The capacity of this washing machine below 10000 (INR) is 7.2 Kgs, so it is ideal for everyone from bachelors to families. However, I do feel that prominent families might find its capacity a bit less.

It comes with 3 wash programs, Delicate, Normal, and Heavy. You can switch between them using their knob on the control menu. Set the mode from this knob, and adjust the timing from the other, and your wash cycle will start.

25 Minutes of Soak Time is inbuilt in each of the wash cycles so that the clothes can get a thorough cleaning. This period will start and end on its own, so you do not have to do anything to set it up or break it.

Its 1400 RPM motor will dry your clothes to the maximum. It has one of the most robust motors on this list.

Whirlpool has provided 4 Wheels on this washing machine for ease of movement. So, if you want to move it from one place to another, you will not need any help. You would be able to do it on your own.

You can purchase the Whirlpool Ace Supreme Plus for about 9000 Rupees, and it has a warranty of 2 years on product.

6. Best Top Loading Washing Machine: Haier HTW62-187BO

TypeSemi-Automatic
Access LocationTop
Capacity6.2 Kg
Top Speed1300 RPM
Weight19 Kg
Warranty5 years

Haier HTW62-187BO is the best top loading washing machine under 10k rupees. All the products that we discussed until now were close to 10k, but not everybody can afford to spend that kind of money. This washing machine is for such people only.

It has a capacity of 6.2 Kg, which is neither good nor bad. It is ideal only for couples and bachelors. However, big families can use it too, if they break their laundry into smaller pieces.

There are 3 wash programs on it, out of which two are for cleaning, and the other one is for drying. They are Standard, Strong, and Drain. If you want, you can use both of them at once, but I would not recommend it. It will put too much pressure on the motor.

Thanks to its Cross Pulsator, the machine creates a steady stream of water in all directions, which results in better washing of clothes. All the dirt and hair separated from this steady flow is captured by its Magic Filter. It is located on the corner of the drum and collects these residues.

Even though the machine is made from plastic, it is built incredibly well. You can count on it to last for years to come.

The starting price of this Haier washing machine is 8400 Rupees, which given its features is quite a bargain. If you are low on cash, this is one of the best products that you can buy in this price range. It comes with a warranty of 2 years on product and 5 years on motor.

Access LocationTop
Capacity7.5 Kg
Top Speed1300 RPM
WeightNot mentioned
Warranty3 years

Earlier, we discussed the fully-automatic washing machine from AmazonBasics. Now, it is time to meet their semi-automatic one.

The machine has a capacity of 7.5 Kgs, which is excellent. It can handle a load of a big family with ease. Bachelors can use it too, but they will not be able to make the most out of its large capacity. If you are in search of the best budget washing machine in India, you can definitely go for this one!

There are 3 wash programs on this machine, Gentle, Normal, and Strong. The first one is washing delicates, the second one is for heavy stuff like bed-sheets and curtains, and the third one is for removing tough stains from everyday clothing items such as Jeans, Shirts, etc.

In all of these modes, there is an inbuilt Soak Period that will allow the detergent to soak entirely into the clothes. It improves its effectiveness, and the stains go much quicker. So, do not be bothered if the motor stops working in between cycles.

This washing machine is made entirely from Plastic but take nothing away from its durability. It is scratch and rust-resistant, so it will last for many years while maintaining its quality.

Its other unique features are Buzzer (makes noise when the wash cycle ends), Castor Wheels, Auto Temperature Cut-off, Auto Balancing Spin Tub, and waterproof control menu.

You can buy this AmazonBasics product for about 9000 Rupees, and it comes with a warranty of 2 years on product and 5 years on its motor. It is an incredible deal, given its price

8. LG Washing Machine Under 10000 Rs: LG P6001RG

LG 6 Kg Semi-Automatic Top Loading Washing Machine (P6001RG, Dark Grey, Roller Jet Pulsator)
TypeSemi-Automatic
Access LocationTop
Capacity6 Kg
Top Speed1350 RPM
Weight30 Kg
Warranty2 years

LG P6001RG is a semi-automatic 6 Kg washing machine. It is smaller in size and capacity than all the other products that we discussed until now, so it is ideal only for couples and bachelors. People looking for bigger ones should look at some of our other reviewed products.

As you would expect, it has 3 wash programs, and they are Gentle, Normal, and Strong. Switch between from its control menu, which in itself is waterproof. So, you can operate the machine easily even with wet hands.

It is powered by a 1350 RPM motor, which is a bit too powerful for laundry of 6 Kg. So, I would recommend you not to leave your clothes inside the drier for too long. It might elongate the fabric of delicate clothes, or damage them in any other way.

LG has installed a Lint Collector on the edge of the tub to collect all the fibers detached from clothes during washing. They will not form any blockage inside the machine or attach to other garments.

Beside its drum on the top, you will find a Collar Scrubber. It will help you get rid of those stubborn stains from the collars of a shirt with ease.

Even though the machine is made from Plastic, you will not have to worry about its build quality over time. It is rust-free, so if you live in a high humidity area, it will still maintain its strength.

Warranty2 years

Panasonic products are some of the best in business. They are reliable, budget-friendly, and loaded with features. The Panasonic NA-W65B3RRB washing machine that we are going to discuss is of the same nature.

The W65B3RRB is a semi-automatic washing machine that has a capacity of 6.5 Kg. It is a perfect little package for couples and bachelors. It is well designed and looks elegant.

Panasonic has provided only 2 wash modes on it to keep its production cost low. They are Regular and Strong, and you can use either one of them to do your laundry. Once you are done with that, turn its knob on Drain mode, and dry your clothes in the drier.

Both of these wash modes have Active Soak Mode for better mixing of detergent with clothes. It will become much more effective, thanks to this procedure.

Its Lint Filter absorbs all the small fabrics and hair that are released from clothes during the wash. You would be surprised by the impact of this little thing on the cleanliness of your clothes. Just make sure to clean it from time to time, as it gets filled up pretty quickly.

The company has installed 4 castor wheels on the bottom of this washing machine to help with this movement. A single person would easily be able to take it from one place to another.

You can get this beautiful little washing machine for about 8900 Rupees. Its price does not do justice to its features, which is a good thing for you as a customer. It has a warranty of 1 year on product and 2 years on motor.

Best Washing Machines Under 10000 (INR) – The FAQs

Which is the best washing machine under 10000 rupees?

We discussed the AmazonBasics washing machine at number 3 on this list, which we feel is the best value for money product. However, it has a greater price tag than 10k, which gives it an unfair advantage over its competitors. Under the budget of 10,000 rupees, the Whirlpool Ace Supreme Plus would be your best companion. It has plenty of features and a reasonable price.

What speed motor do I need for my laundry?

Motor’s speed is responsible for the functioning of a washing machine. I would recommend you to get a product that offers at least 900 RPM. At this speed, it will not consume much electricity and will dry your clothes quickly.

Should I save some more money and get a fully-automatic machine over semi-automatic?

Yes, you should if you can. Fully-Automatic machines are much better than semi-automatic ones. They clean and offer a whole lot of features for their price. Their only downside is the higher cost. A good fully automatic machine will cost you around 15k to 25k rupees, so save up to this amount before you purchase.

How often should I get my washing machine serviced?

Servicing will keep your washing machine up and running. I recommend you do it every 3 to 4 months. However, it will vary a lot, depending on your usage. If you use it extensively, you might have to get it done even more frequently.

Verdict

Under the fixed budget, all the products seem the same, as they have very similar features. So, it can be tough to find the best washing machine under 10000 rupees. What you can do to overcome this issue, we have tested 14 washing machines below 10000 rupees and provided you with the top suggestions only.
