MarQ had launched semi-automatic washing machines sometime back. However, lately, they launched a couple of fully automatic washing machines. These models have been an instant hit with the consumers. But are they really worth buying? Read this MarQ Washing Machine Review below to find out.
So, Do I recommend buying MarQ washing machines? Yes – for the right consumer
Will I rate them at par with LG, Bosch and IFB Washing Machines? No, Not yet
Are they a better bet compared to some of the other value (Cheaper) brands – Definitely yes
Which of the Models do I recommend buying? – Go for this Model (This one is a front load washing machine).
If you wish to buy something more value for money but are willing to sacrifice on the wash quality and feature available, then you can go for this Top Load Model.
I hope this gave you a gist of my rating of MarQ washing machines. Do read the complete article for detailed answers to the question I referenced above.
Update: – As per the latest court ruling, Flipkart won’t be able to use the MarQ brand name any further. I will keep you updated once Flipkart rebrands their product. You can read more about the ruling – Here
MarQ: Company Details:
As some of you might already know that the brand MarQ is owned and serviced by Flipkart. This is the reason that MarQ washing machines are exclusively available only on Flipkart. The installation and service of the product are carried out by Jeeves (Another Flipkart company).
The product comes with an at-home repair warranty. Flipkart also provides an option to extend this warranty by 2 years on most MarQ washing machines.
This is the reason you won’t find any details about MarQ service centres or call centre numbers. You have to call the Flipkart customer service number and register you complain. Jeeves executives will come down to your home and address the concern (at the time of writing this review)
Review of Best MarQ Washing Machines:
1. MarQ 7.5 kg Fully Automatic Front Load – MQFLXI75
As you would have noticed above, this is the washing machine that I recommend to buy. This is the latest model launched by Flipkart. It has all the features that any washing machine by a premium brand in the range of Rs. 30,000 would have.
Have a look at some of the User Reviews & Latest Price – Flipkart
- Fully automatic front load washing machine with a laundry capacity of 7.5 KGs
- The dries can operate at a max speed of 1200 RPM. This is one of the highest speed available in this price range
- This product offers 15 different wash programs including an 18-minute quick wash functionality
- The washing drum is made using stainless steel
- Uses a powerful belt drive motor. However, it would have been better if they would have offered a direct drive motor.
- A tub clean functionality is available to keep your washing machine hygienic and germ-free
- Anti-crease function comes inbuilt into the machine
- Options available to select wash temperature and spin cycle speed
- A few users face a delay in installation

2. MarQ 6.5 kg Fully Automatic Front Load –MQFLXI65
This is a slightly smaller model of the washing machine shown above. Hence, it is priced lower accordingly.
Check the Price difference between the two machines – Flipkart
Comparison: MarQ MQFLXI75 vs MQFLXI65
- The most obvious and visual difference between the two washing is the colour of the door. The MQFLXI75 has a much better looking black door while the MQFLXI65 has a regular door
- MQFLXI75 has a higher wash capacity of 7.5 Kg, while the MQFLXI65 has a 6.5 kg wash capacity
- The MQFLXI75 has a higher spin speed of 1200 RPM while the MQFLXI65 is limited to 1000 RPM
- Similarly, MQFLXI75 has 15 difference wash cycle options compared to 10 wash cycles available with MQFLXI65
- There is almost 2 to 3 thousand rupee difference between the two washing machine. MQFLXI65 obviously being the cheaper
So if you have a limited budget and can make good with a smaller capacity of the washing machine, you can surely opt for this one.
3. MarQ 7.5 KG Semi Automatic Top Load – MQSA75
However, if your budget is under Rs. 10,000 this is the washing machine that will suit you the best.
This is a semi-automatic washing machine with a good 7.5 KG laundry capacity. The build quality of the machine is really good compared to the price that you pay for this. This machine also features in my list of cheapest washing machines in India.
