Whirlpool has recently introduced a 360° Bloomwash Pro washing machine line up. This is a series of fully automatic top load washing machines and in this article, we take a look at what its features, price, variants, colors and how it compared with the competition from LG and Samsung.

Whirlpool has provided plenty of cleaning and washing features in this washing machine which makes it a compelling product. In-fact the range claims to have aced in the industry’s most stringent soil removal test.
Whirlpool claims that Bloomwash Pro is No. 1* in cleaning performance and it removes up to 50* tough stains, ensuring the best-in-class cleaning performance. Let's take a look at what all this washing machine offers:
1. Hotmatic Technology(for a superior wash & customized fabric care):
Whirlpool Bloomwash Pro range comes with an in-built heater that operates in combination with its Advanced Microprocessor and Intellisensor. The advantage of this technology is that it brings a superior & customized wash experience basis fabric type.
How does it work?
With the help of AI + Intellisensors, the washing machine analyzes data & controls water temperature for different fabric types. The technology operates at 3 different levels - Warm, Hot and Allergen Free. The temperature varies from 35°C to 55°C respectively providing the ultimate cleaning experience basis your fabric type. Together with Advanced 360° Bloomwash Wash Action, Hotmatic Technology gets rid of up to 50* Tough Stains.
2. Unique Wash Action - 360° Bloomwash Motion
It’s unique 360° Bloomwash Motion is designed to provide superior cleaning results.
How does it happen?
Unlike how clothes move a horizontal circular fashion in any regular top loader, clothes in 360° Bloomwash moves in a vertical circular action, termed by Whirlpool as tumble motion action. The tumble action enables rubbing of clothes against each other creating conditions of a superior wash. Don't worry, rubbing of clothes is in such a way that there is minimum fabric abrasion.
3. 360° Spray (For Improved Cleaning & Water Saving)
The Whirlpool Bloomwash comes with a 360° Spray system. There are three nozzles located on top of the drum which sprays and recirculates the hot detergent water. It not only helps in improved rinsing but also saves up to 25%* water which means lower water bills and great for the environment as well.
4. Max Lint Capture With Dual Lint Filter
The prime mover has radial vanes at the bottom, which repeatedly pushes the water up, with a unique pumping tower, through the lint filter, ensuring max lint captured.
Features That Cater to Specific Problems
While the key features ensure the most of your cleaning requirements are covered, the machine has some specific features that cater to specific needs.
1. Solving for Hard Water Problems
Hard water is a big deterrent to proper cleaning in certain regions in India. The machine has a hard water wash function specifically for such deterrents. The intelligent hard water software adapts the machine programs for washing in hard water giving better detergent action.
2. Smart Sensors for Low Voltage & Low Water Pressure conditions
There are so many times we come across regular problems like voltage fluctuation which sometimes render our appliances in the reset mode. The machine has smart sensors built in which senses low water pressure and low voltage conditions. On normal resumption of voltage and water, the machine resumes, avoiding any inconvenience to you.
3. Laundry drying during monsoon with Power Dry
During the rainy season, it's not possible to use the balcony space to hang clothes for drying. And cramped balcony space in metro towns like Mumbai is another challenge. To cater to these problems, the machine has introduced 4 levels of drying - Gentle, Normal, Extra & Power
4. Delicates need more care: Baby Care Program
Greater care is required while washing clothes baby and delicate clothes. This program gives gentle care for your delicate clothes by first sanitizing them at a temperature of 45 Degrees and a double rinse wash. Softener is dispensed automatically thereafter during the wash cycle giving you fresh & soft clothes
5. Water-Savings via Catalytic Soak
Water shortage is another problem in various parts of India and this is where the Catalytic Soak feature of Whirlpool Bloomwash Pro Washing helps. The Catalytic Soak feature the soaks clothes in concentrated detergent water to ease the dirt before the motor starts working. Using this feature, the machine utilizes only about 1/3rd the amount of water and creates a high concentration of detergent which helps in getting rid of tough stains with ease.

On the other hand, both LG and Samsung are carrying the usual regular design. All these compared washing machines have solid build quality but Whirlpool wins by a margin in terms of design.
All these 3 washing machines have the same capacity of 7 kg so no differences there.
The power capacity of the machine is dependent on the RPM of the motor provided. Higher the rpm, the machine will be able to rotate the clothes with more power and hence better cleaning. Here the LG and Whirlpool provide a good 740 rpm motor. On the other hand, Samsung has a decent 680 rpm motor.
Whirlpool features a Hexa Bloom Impeller that moves the clothes in 360° wash motion so that the clothes rub against each other. LG has a smart motion feature that supports 3 kinds of tub movements for improving performance. Both Whirlpool and LG run edge to edge in this comparison of rpm and cleaning capabilities.
