    Hi All,

    I have decided upon IFB Senorita Vx, 800 RPM, Front loading. Can anyone know about the ideal RPM for washing machines?
    The sales person told 800RPM is ideal for daily wear clothes. Is 800RPM ok? I am afraid if RPM is more like 1000/1200 the clothes will be torn easily. If 800 RPM is ok for clothes, then for blankets and heavy wash, will it be ok? Or should i go for higher RPMs.

    Can some one give your comments on RPM speed and longevity of clothes?

    Hi,

    I use 800rpm for daily clothes like night dresses, for office wear and delicate wear i use 400 rpm and for heavy wash (bedsheets & towels) i use hot water + 1200 rpm.
