A higher priced product does not necessarily mean a good product. In this review, I will be talking about some of the Cheapest Washing Machines in India that you can buy online. Machines that you can buy under Rs. 10000 in India. I will be covering both, the cheapest Semi-Automatic as well as Fully-Automatic washing machines.
Which is the Best Budget Washing Machine?
If you are looking for a Washing Machine that is Cheap as well as works really well, I suggest go for the Washing Machine by MarQ (Flipkart Brand). It is a semi-automatic washing machine that has a huge capacity of 7.5 Kgs. Flipkart also gives you a 2 Year comprehensive warranty on the product and 5 Years on the Motor.
The paragraph above gave you the gist of the article. Continue reading below for a more detailed review. This article will cover affordable Semi as well as fully automatic washing machines. I will first start off with Semi-Automatic ones below:
Cheapest Semi-Automatic Washing Machine in India:
1. MarQ MQSA75 – 7.5 Kg Semi-Automatic (Under Rs. 10000)
MarQ by Flipkart is a remarkable product. It is made using ABS plastic. This makes it highly durable and will ensure your washing machine lasts you for years to come. This is easily amongst the best washing machines that you can buy under Rs. 10000 in India.
The product cleans the clothes really well. I was really impressed with its dryer performance. It also does not have a lot of vibrations and noise (Generally semi-automatic washing machine do have high levels of vibrations)

Bonus Mention – Cheapest Mini Washing Machine in India
This is probably the most cost-effective and budget-friendly machine on the entire list. I would suggest this machine only for bachelors or someone who is looking for a short-term or temporary solution to washing clothes.
The product has a capacity of only 3 Kgs. You can wash around 5 to 7 clothes at a time (Depending on the load). This has only one drum, so once you have done with the wash cycle. You will have to manually fit the dryer drum and add the clothes again.
So, as you realize, even though the product is cheap, it does require a lot of effort to wash small quantity of clothes.
