Choosing a suitable washing machine for the home is often fraught with uncertainty. After all, most buyers do not understand the jargon used by the companies. That is why it is important to do some research into what each machine offers. You need to look at how it does or does not match your requirements.

For a small household, a machine with a loading capacity of 6–8 kg should be enough. While the fully automatic feature is very handy, it uses much more water. So, keep the water supply of your area in mind while making a choice. Now, medium-range washing machines can be a bit difficult to fit into a monthly budget. So, you could look at EMI options from finance companies like Baja Finserv.

To help you make the right choice, here is a list of 10 great fully automatic top load washing machines. Each of them is available for less than Rs 20,000.
