Hotpoint washer dryers in a nutshell...well, when considering buying a washer dryer what is the main objective? Surely it’s space saving? One of the primary reasons people go for a washer dryer is because they don’t have the space to accommodate a separate washer and dryer. But are they as efficient as two separate models, that is the question?
Hotpoint Washer Dryers
Hotpoint certainly seems to think so; they offer value for money, energy efficiency and style, in one complete package.
Design wise, Hotpoint washer dryers are available in white, like the WDL520P, graphite, silver, black, stainless steel and aluminium. There’s a colour to suit all kitchens whether they are clean-cut and contemporary or country-esqe and comfy.
The drums in Hotpoint washer dryers range from 5-8kg, but it’s always keep in mind that a washer dryer can wash more than it can dry, for example, out of a 7kg wash cycle, only 5kg could be dried efficiently so it’s always best to wash a smaller load if you’re doing a complete wash and dry cycle. Maximum spin speeds range from 1200 to 1600, and can be tailored on all the Hotpoint washer dryers to suit your specific needs.
Hotpoint also make both freestanding and built-in models, so if you’ve got a swanky hidden kitchen and don’t want your appliances ruining the flow, a built-in model like the BHWD129 is most definitely for you – even if it’s just to keep your undies hidden from view.
In terms of energy efficiency, washer dryers are never as eco-friendly as a washing machine alone because dryers are the biggest consumers of energy in a household. But, hold it, because Hotpoint have made some impressively green, A rated washer dryers like the Hotpoint Aqualtis AQM8L29IV, you can have all the space saving benefits of a washer dryer while still being a green queen, or king.
Obviously, the further you travel up the Hotpoint range, the more features you get, but all the washer dryers from the Aquarius all the way up to the Aqualtis have the quality you’d expect from Hotpoint.
