Excerpt: We brought one of these Hotpoint washer-dryers and the noise level and amount of vibration from the machine when it was on its spin cycle (even at the rise stage) was appalling (yes we had removed the transit bolts!). We had to have an engineer out within a week. No problem from Hotpoint there, they replaced it within a couple of days. What the engineer said was that it sounded like the drum casing was too small for the drum.
Pros: Looks good and stylish
