2. Technologies used in Washing Machines

ParameterLG T70SKSF1ZIFB TL RSS Aqua
TechnologiesSmart Inverter Direct DriveTriadic Pulsator Wash and
Belt Drive

In the comparison of washer technologies, I found LG washer quite advanced compared to IFB.

  • Smart Inverter Direct Drive: It consists of the inverter motor, which optimizes the energy consumption in accordance with power requirement.
  • The Triadic Pulsator gently removes the stubborn dirt. The powerful Swirl jets will dislodge dirt from every corner of the fabric. And, its mechanical centre punch action pushes the dirt out of clothes.
  • Belt Drive: It uses belt and other intermediary parts in power transmission. It’s almost opposite to the direct drive. And, it’s also way inefficient and ineffective compared to direct drive.

Winner: LG T70SKSF1Z Washing Machine.
