"We bought this washer dryer in November 2008. Within 2…"
We bought this washer dryer in November 2008. Within 2 wks it was no longer drying, so we called out an engineer to fix it. This visit was the first of a huge number of visits, fortunately covered by the extended warranty we took out on the machine. This warranty finally ran out in November 2011. When contacted by D&G about why I had not renewed the cover and whether the machine was still running fine, I almost lost it.... It may have been a lemon from the start, but I am not willing to try any other Hotpoint washing machine...Read moreLess

"Do not buy this machine! We bought it just over…"
Do not buy this machine!
We bought it just over 2 years ago. There appear to be some bad batches, of which I guess we got one. Ours was sort of broken from the start, and has been breaking down every other month. Mostly it is the heating element in the dryer, but now the motor has given up as well. We will never buy a Hotpoint again!
The single advantage of this machine is that it is really easy to use, but if it doesn't work....Read moreLess
"This washer-dryer replaced one I had owned for 10 years!…"
This washer-dryer replaced one I had owned for 10 years!
It is so much quieter when running than my old machine. I can actually stand next to it when it's spinning and have a conversation.
Has a good capacity (7kg) so I can wash big loads and so it is on less often. I have washed single duvets without any problem, the big door helps loading and unloading.
It has an extra fast spin cycle so clothes come out dryer after washing (I used to spin my washes twice on my old machine).
The dial is easy to understand. It has 'mini load' and 'time saver' options which I use quite often.
Haven't used the dryer option much but seems to dry clothes faster than my previous machine.
All in all, I'm very pleased with this machine!
(I've not rated durability because I don't feel I have owned it long enough to comment)Read moreLess
