Haier home appliances are one of the fastest growing in India. With modern technology, reliable performance, high durability and fair price, Haier washing machines are one of the preferred choice of the Indian demographic.
Haier started off by selling top loading washing machines. Their 5.8 Kg HWM58-020 is the best-selling fully automatic top loader in India. They introduced various iterations of the 5.8 Kg model and it was in 2017 that they introduced front loading washing machines in India.
The success of front loaders is still hazy and hard to determine as pioneers like IFB, Bosch and LG have a strong foothold in this segment. However, the near zero pressure technology employed by Haier could give it a much-needed boost and persuade many to opt for it as competing brands like Bosch requires a stable high water pressure supply for its proper functioning.
Haier front loaders are definitely feature rich. If they maintain the durability and performance expected from Haier, they are sure to rule the front load segment too in the long run.
