Final Verdict |
A pricey option with some premium features. Certainly one of the best top loaders in India. You can get cheaper washing machines from Samsung or Haier though. Those machine won’t have the same look or the silent operation but will get the job done.
The LG T7581NDDLG does an exceptional job as a washing machine in all the things that matter. With a 6.5 KG wash capacity, this washing machine should be good enough for a family of 4 people. A regular wash cycle lasts a total of 45 mins which continues from where it stopped in case of a power cut. Pretty handy feature for those living in areas with frequent electricity outages. It features a total of 4 wash programs: normal, gentle, quick and strong wash. The inverter technology behind this washing machine is slightly better than Samsung’s Wobble technology and leads to lower vibration and less power consumption.

Design and Build Quality:
The LG T7581NDDLG has some interesting design features. The outer body is made of high quality stainless steel so you can be rest assured about the build quality. It also has plastic rat meshes which are quite helpful for Indian conditions.
This washing machine comes with smart hydraulic door which closes down slowly and automatically. However, you can’t open it and add clothes once the wash cycle has begun. We also felt that the LED lights on this washing machine aren’t very bright and difficult to see in the sun. Neither of these are huge problems though. Top loading washing machines in general do not allow adding of clothes mid-wash.
The LG T7581NDDLG is fairly easy to use. It takes 45 minutes to conduct one wash, rinse and spin cycle together. You will be surprised to see how little noise this washing machine makes. If you just enter another room from where the machine is, you will hear nothing. We were also impressed with the low level of vibration. This is mainly due to the inverter technology. It adds a special premium feel to the usability of this washing machine.
Another interesting feature we noted was the detergent mechanism. Instead of adding the powder or fluid from one side, the machine inputs the detergent from 3 different angles, leading to an even distribution.
The machine features 4 wash programs: normal, gentle, quick and strong wash. For daily use use clothes, just click on normal after adding the clothes in. The machine will do the rest. The wash quality on the LG T7581NDDLG is pretty good albiet not as good the more expensive front loading types. For woolen clothes you’d be advised to use the gentle wash function. A faster spin cycle on woolen clogs the machine and makes the drum shake a lot.
With a 6.5 KG wash capacity, this washing machine should be good enough for a family of 4 people. Of course like most other washing machines these days, the LG T7581NDDLG comes with tub clean feature which is great to descale the machine in case of a lime build-up.
One of the main features of this washing machine is the extremely low noise which is due to the inverter technology. If you notice the picture of the drum you can see it is slightly different than other conventional ones. It also offers a high degree of dust and rust resistance.

According to us, it is certainly one of the best top loading washing machines currently available in India. There is nothing seriously wrong with it, which explains why it is one of the best-selling washing machines on most online portals. The only that could be better is the price, but in reality, you end up paying a slight premium for LG’s innovative technologies when it comes to the inverter technology. It is a special washing machine that will leave you feeling happy due to it’s stylish design. Highly recommended for people who like beautiful and functional things. Read more reviews on Amazon..
