Very Basic front loading model. Only basic functionalities.

Flipkart delivery was awesome. I got it very next day. I am using this washing machine for last 10 days. I earlier had 'Samsung' front loading washing machine, which worked for 10 years and finally it halted, so I brought this IFB DIVA. n First of all this is a 'very very basic front loading model. It has very limited functionalities. Looks like IFB wants to compete with other vendors like LG & Samsung low end markets. I guess thats the reason IFB introduced this IFB diva 6 kg washing machine nnConsn1. Only three temperature modes (cold-hot-warm). My early samsung had the option to choose different temperate modes. n2. Front transparent door is made up of some fibre kind of plastic material. It is not a GLASS one. My old samsung had glass door. May be IFB reduced the price by making these compromise. nn3. Biggest flaw is the 'detergent adder' which has only one slot. My old samsung one had 3 slots (one for the first wash detergent, one slot for 2nd wash detergent and 3rd slot for the liquid conditioners/dettol). Now in this IFB diva, we can't add both the liquid and powder detergent at first itself. So it can't take the washing powder at first and fabric conditioners at the rise time. We have explicitly add the conditioner at the rinse time. This is BAD. n4. No Pre-wash or Soak time mode. n5. No Delayed start n6. Temperature setting wont work in Quick wash mode. (Temperature set only works in some mode) n7. The Tap connector which IFB provided has NO Adapter. We had to buy the adapter outside. This is really bad, as we were not aware before the installation that the we have to buy the tap adapter separately. When the guy came for installation, he told me that there is no adapter and then I went outside to purchase that. It costed me 300/- extra. This is bad. They should provide the basic connectors. nn8. Max revolution 800. nProsn----nEnd of the day, even though this is a very basic model, but the maker is IFB, which is trustable one. I hope it will function good. It has everyday necessary basic options, which is fine. nnAdvice to the buyers: This washing machine as very basic functionalities. If you want to buy, checkout and compare the functionalities vs the price with the other makers (Bosch, LG, Samsung) and then buy.
