"very good buy"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet

"This appliance is excellent, very quiet, excellent wash results and though some programmes long the hour wash does all types of clothes very well indeed. My last hotpoint lasted 13 years and was still going when I bought this one so if this one is as good I will be happy."

"Shorter wash helpful"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

"Very pleased with this washing machine. Some programmes are long but alter and change the wash to fit one of the shorter washes. I have a karate gi to wash twice a week and the 30 min wash brings this up very well I am especially pleased with this."

"best washing machine i've purchased so far"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

"This machine has been very good so far I've had it for nearly 3 weeks and haven't had any problems and it is very easy to use. The spin cycle is really quiet compared to my old machine. It is quite noisy when the water is going into the machine but most machines are like that. I would highly recommend this machine to friends and family."

"Dont bother"

Cons: Noisy

"This machine is a terrible comparision to my previous hotpoint machine.

The wash cycles are too long (normal 40 deg is over 3 hours!!) even then the clothes dont come out clean and often have to be re-washed.

noisy on spin

It all looks good on paper, but in reality this machine was a bad buy... I am very disapointed. Which is a shame as not in a position to buy an alternative.

Try another one in this price range"
