Summary: This washing machine takes 3 hours and 15 minutes to do a 60 degree large wash which I am not very pleased about! My clothes have come out of the wash faded and the texture of the fabric looks battered and ruined. As for my jeans, they have shrunk considerably. If I had known that this machine was not as good as my old indesit washing machine by being so slow and ruining my clothes I would not have bought it! Very disappointed!
Pros: Wash cycle may take a little longer as this is a cold fill only machine
Summary: All in all this machine is great value for money, with simple and logical controls. It is very quiet and as it is cold fill only it doesn't drain off from your hot water tank. The only draw back is that if you want to do multiple loads in a day then this machine takes longer longer due to the fact that it heats it's own water.
Excerpt: this washer washers clothes well but is very loud sounds like draining all time and spin very loud had hotpoint out 3 times they said nothing wrong and had to have drum replaced mine cracked not even 2 years old yet geting a new one today a samsung we live in a bungalow and can here it in every room my mates got one and hers is loud too
Excerpt: I have had this for a few months now. no problems so far. Have this in white colour. instruction manual is wasy to understand and very descriptive with all settings and combinations of temperatures needed. dont normally need to use higher temps as most things now wash at 40. But easy to change tem if needed. Fitting was easy! positioning of machine is easy. The washing settings are easy to understand and change for different types of wash.
Excerpt: We have had this excellent washing machine for just over 6months and I am very pleased with it When we lived on our sailing boat we had a very large bucket with a tap at the bottom as a washing machine!The clothes were left overnight and the gently rocking (or not so gentle )of the boat did the hard work.
Excerpt: We purchased this washer after having a really bad experience with another brand. It is sleek looking and doesnt take up to much space, also it is easy to clean- the detergent draw is removable so can be washed. It has many settings, the ones i use mostly are the white wash- which takes on average 2 hours. The flash cotton, which takes 45 minutes or less and goes upto 60 degrees and is thorough enough to remove minor stains.
Has certainly reduced this household's carbon footprint

Excerpt: My 3 year old washer/dryer broke about a month ago and the engineer advised us that it would cost around £200 to replace the motherboard. Instead of having it repaired we decided to buy a new machine (actually, scrap that - my lovely Mum bought us a new machine - thank heavens for Mum's!).
Excerpt: Having used automatic washing machines for 30 years, I must say this is the worse machine we have ever had. It just doesn't take in enough water. The cooler washes are very poor. Many things have to go through twice. Does not rinse properly. Clothes come out streaked with detergent. Have had repeated visits from Hotpoint engineers who insist nothing is wrong. Wash can be improved by putting about a gallon of water in with the wash.
