Whirlpool 6.5 kg Fully Automatic Top Load Washing Machine (WM Premier 652SD)
The whirlpool washing machine comes with many efficient technologies that make washing clothes just a fun. This is a fully automatic machine from clothes washing to drying. And, with the capacity of 6.5 Kgs, it is easily suitable for a family of five to eight members.
Whirlpool may not be a leader in the washing machine market since IFB and LG leaving no stone unturned in producing advanced products. But when comes to product quality, durability, and hassle-free customer service, Whirlpool is one of the best brands you can rely on. For excellent wash to your clothes, you can try this brand new Whirlpool automatic washing machine, which, despite being good in quality, in fact, is cheaper than IFB washing machines from the same price category.
Built and Design
Whirlpool WM Premier 652D is 28Kgs in weight, 87cm in height, and 54cm in depth. Its top window is transparent allowing the user to review the running washing process inside. It can be operated with some easy to understand buttons placed on top at user’s side.
In user’s control, the washing machine lacks digital display but that is not a big drawback as it hardly affects user’s usages efficiency.
As far as its built quality is concerned, metal and stainless steel are dominating top to bottom. Outer body of this is made with metal having rust proof coating on it and tube is made with steel confirms long lasting durability as well. In terms of built quality, the machine appears to be pretty solid, if it is handled with a care, it might not need service for many years.
This Whirlpool machine is based on the Agipeller washing method wherein clothes forced to move through the water at a greater speed for removing dirt from it. For a regular wash running this machine in delicate mode is advisable. Agipeller technology is hard on clothes thereby very effective in removing dirt but it can potentially damage to fabrics as well. This is the best technology for washing jeans, though.
Some washing machines fail to fill drum when water pressure is low. Especially those lives at top floors and closure to water tank face such problems regularly. In such cases, a washing machine should have some effective technology for filling drum even on a low water pressure. Whirlpool WM premier 652SD comes with the ZPF technology for getting drum filled at 50% faster speed even when water pressure in user’s place is lower than 0.017 Mpa. In fact, this technology remains effective even when the tap is just seven ft down from main water tank.
Although it lacks inbuilt heater, which in a way is a good thing because that is lowering electricity consumption burden, it has an inbuilt dryer based on Whirlpool’s signature Max Dryer technology. The dryer does good work in drying clothes after a complete wash.
Users can choose from five wash modes: normal, heavy, delicate, whites, and speedy. There are eight wash programs on this machine. It also provides to choose from spin & rinse and spin only wash modes.
I am a big fan of “quick 30” and a special wash program for child clothes in LG washing machines. Whirlpool WM premier 652SD does not have such dedicated wash programs.
Warranty and Installation
According to the company’s service commitment, standard installation and demo service is free of cost. Two years warranty does not cover damage to outer body, plastic parts, and any accessories attached to this washing machine.

I rate this Whirlpool WM Premier 652SD with good marks for its sturdy built and simplistic washing control options.

In 2016 Whirlpool should offer some extra features for making its washing machines little smarter as well. Those like to have a stable machine with Whirlpool India’s reliable service can purchase this washing machine.
