Summary: Ordered at the weekend and Hotpoint rang me on the Monday to arrange delivery. Arrived when they said it would, well packed. A bit noisy, makes my floor rattle but does what it says on the tin!
Such a shame about the paddles - otherwise a good machine

Excerpt: *Reason for purchase* We have a cute kitchen - otherwise described as extremely small. Thus we needed an appliance that had petite dimensions. Now is an opportune time to mention the dimensions of the WDL 5490 P - Width 59.5cm Height 85cm Depth 53.5cm The depth is the all important dimension here...
Excerpt: We bought our washer dryer to use mainly as a washer, but we wanted a back-up if our tumble dryer went wrong. I hate the house looking like Widow Twanky's laundry when the tumbler goes wrong!! I have to say that this particular washer dryer has been one of the most reliable we have ever had.

Excerpt: I live in a rented flat and after my last machine packed up it was replaced by the land lady with this one. It is a good reliable machine and is great for the five or so loads I do a week. Living in a flat without a garden I also use the tumble dry mode for trying sheets and towels.

Excerpt: Our landlady kindly replaced our washer /dryer earlier this Summer after our last one died - after only 18mths use. This new machine is very good. It is very easy to use which is a bonus in our flat as my other flatmates are not ones for reading instruction manuals!
Excerpt: We have had this machine for about five months now and I find it to be very good. I use it primarily at the weekend and do about four to five loads over the two days, so perhaps that's not particularly heavy use.
Not A Machine I Would Ever Buy Again, And The Service Is Poor
