Excerpt: "I bought this washing machine for my Mum who has failing eyesight and needed a machine that was not too complicated to use. It does not have an overwhelming number of buttons and the dial is easy for her to tell how many times she has moved it, therefore making it easier to find the right programme. I also have the same machine and am very pleased with it. I have not rated it super quiet but it is fine (no washing machine is ever quiet!
Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good, easy to choose programme
Summary: I bought this washing machine for my Mum who has failing eyesight and needed a machine that was not too complicated to use. It does not have an overwhelming number of buttons and the dial is easy for her to tell how many times she has moved it, therefore making it easier to find the right programme. I also have the same machine and am very pleased with it. I have not rated it super quiet but it is fine (no washing machine is ever quiet!
Pros: It has a spin speed of 1600 and the clothes come out nearly dry. There are no other strengths.
Cons: I bought this machine less than 2 years ago and it is now not functioning. The wash was never good, and was a disappointment from the start. You cannot tell where the machine is in the cycle and you have no options to skip through certain bits if needs be. The machine seems to be flimsy and cheap. Having spoken to an expert, they advised that since being taken over, Hoover are now considered a cheap and poor quality brand. I am now having to look for a replacement was...
Excerpt: I bought one of these 16 months ago but only just started using the daily wash as I have a newborn. Three weeks ago the door opened after the cycle had supposedly finished and flooded my garage floor (luckily it just missed the plugged in extension lead on the floor!); last week on the same cycle it kept spinning and spinning and overheated (transfering dyes from clothes that are ok to be washed together at 30° or 40° into each other and ruining the whole load) and I had...
Excerpt: Hoover OPH616 The Hoover OPH616 is a good value for money, powerful and efficient washing machine. The product is durable, comes with a 5 year guarantee and has a range of easy to use functions. I bought my OPH616 from a local electrical store near to my house for £250 6 months ago and consider it a really good investment. Appearance In terms of dimensions, the washing machine measures 85x60x52cm which is about the average size of a washing machine in the UK.
Excerpt: Annoyingly our washing machine broke down a few weeks ago and rather than getting it repaired my partner and I decided it would probably be best to just buy a new one. We did lots of research online to find the best brand, but they were all so expensive. Hoover washing machines did seem to get a few good reviews and is cheaper than the competition so we decided to go for that. We went for a OPH616 washing machine, and we bought this from Comet for £275.
Excerpt: So my 26 years old Hoover machine has come to the end of it's its life. Even though it made a lot of noise and when it was spinning went for a ride across the room it still did one hell of a good job. My clothes wore washed clean and when I took them out wore almost dry. My old Hoover washing machine was passed on it me in the family, of course I did not though much of it but it saved me buying a new one so it keep going for extra 6 years without breaking, washing my...
Seemingly a decent quality washing machine that performs well and at a good price

Excerpt: What is it about Christmas and domestic appliances? Last year it was our dishwasher that broke down three days before Christmas. This year it's the washing machine although it did have the courtesy to give us a few more days' notice. The dishwasher was on it's last legs admittedly; it's demise didn't really come as any surprise although the timing could have been better.
