Hotpoint Aquarius+ WDF740P Freestanding Washer Dryer - Polar White

We love it. It’s in our Top 5! This washer dryer is a great space saver and the Hotpoint Aquarius includes a brilliant 60 minute fast wash for smaller loads, and dedicated wool and silk wash for more delicate clothes. It will also easily handle 7kg of washing (35 T-shirts) and dry up to 5kg of garments (15 T-shirts). And it has clever sensor drying. The drum measures the moisture in your clothing and automatically stops when they’re dry – using less energy and saving you money too.

Product Reviews

"Very pleased with first ever washer dryer!"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Value for money, timer switch - wake up to clean dry washing!, sensor drying reduces drying time

Cons: can't seem to cancel a drying programme

"Was a bit dubious about buying a washer/dryer having heard negative things about them but I went for it and so far have been delighted with my purchase.

At first glance there are a lot of options which, if you are upgrading from an older machine with an on/off and start/stop button like I was, might seem a bit baffling! But, a swift read through the options in the manual and it all becomes clear.

It washes as well as any other machine, have to wait for one of my daughter's spaghetti covered tops before I can really comment on that. The drying is superb, once you realise that it uses steam and therefore, things feel slightly damp when they come out. But like the magic wipes on an aeroplane, they dry within seconds and require very little ironing seemingly regardless of which drying programme you use.

Another point worth noting; when I first selected a drying programme, I nearly fell over when it said three hours on the countdown timer. But, the dryer is sensor driven and will adjust the drying time as it's going. I went back expecting it to still have 2hrs to run and it said 5 minutes instead. Very useful little feature which I don't have on my bog standard tumble dryer.

My only gripe is that they have placed the start/stop button where you intuitively think the on/off button would be and I keep restarting a drying cycle which I can't seem to cancel. Very annoying to see the machine drying nothing.

All in all, what seems to be a great machine, looks great and does the job well. Would definitely recommend this to a friend."

"Very Good Washer/Dryer"

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

Cons: can't find any can at present

"This washer dryer was bought on behalf of on elderley male relative in his 80s.

He is finding it easy to use and reliable.

An advantage for him is that it is not a digital display and the controls i.e. wash setting dial can remain on the same stting all the time.

All he needs to do to turn it on to the same cycle is press one button for wash and one for the drying continuation.

Very Good"

"Just a washer-dryer"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use

Cons: Noisy

"Don't get excited about this product: it's a washer dryer that does what it promised when we bought it. Only downsides: it's noisy and takes too long to wash&dry."

"Generally a good machine"

Pros: Quiet, Easy to use

Cons: dial & doors stick out a bit

"This washing machine has generally proved a good purchase.

What you can't see when you buy online is that the main dial sticks out from the front of the machine, also the door sticks out and isn't flush with the main front - so when looking at the measurements add another 3-4 cm to the deapth or else - like me, it may not allow a door that covers the machine to close!

That aside, I've been happy with the machine.

The spin is quiet and really leaves the items well spun and then quick to dry.

Don't overload the drum or soap may remain on the garments.

Great digital display and range of wash programmes.

Worryingly haven't found any filter as yet, for fluff from the drier but it dries well, even if it takes a while, so probably best for someone who only needs the drier on the odd occaision.

It's easy to use and is a nice looking machine.

I would recommend it !"

"excellent machine"

Pros: Quiet, Easy to use, Good build quality

"I like this machine because it is really simple to use and you can choose the temperature for each type of wash - there is a cold wash through to 90 degrees.

The size of the drum is really handy, especially when using as a tumble drier. I would not reccomend if you use your tumble drier regularly as it can take upto three hours to dry a bundle of towels. It has a good 60 minute cycle in which it can wash and dry your items.

I would reccommend this machine"

"so glad I didnot take any notice of negative reviews I read - this washer is perfect. The washing and drying times can be adjusted to be much shorter depending on temperature selected, I am very, very happy with it."

Hotpoint WDF740P

Hotpoint’s Aquarius WDF740P comes with a large 7kg drum. It washes up to 35 T-shirts in one go, and can dry up to 15 T-shirts. It has a 1400 rpm spin that reduces drying time by wringing out excess water. So when it comes to drying, less energy is used – great for saving a few pennies. The WDF740P won’t cost you a fortune to run either as it has a B energy rating. Pretty good for a washer dryer.

With clever sensor drying, the WDF740P won’t waste a drop of water. It detects the level of moisture in your clothing and automatically adjusts the cycle to use the minimum amount of water and energy.

Built to cope with the washing and drying needs of the modern family, the Hotpoint Aquarius restores your white shirts to their natural sparkling glory but dries as well. A whopping total of 16 programmes give you plenty of washing and drying options. With everything from the expected synthetics and cotton cycles to the very special baby cycle that thoroughly rinses clothes for the most sensitive of skin.

Hotpoint generously provide a handful of extra functions that can be added onto your selected cycle. After you’ve chosen your programme and selected a temperature, the fun really begins. For an intensive, all encompassing soak choose super wash. If you’ve got a busy schedule then delay start will start the cycle only when you’re ready and the mini load setting is ideal for small laundry piles.
