Hotpoint Aquarius WMYL661P Freestanding Washing Machine - White

Fast spin speed, brilliant wash performance. The 6kg drum of this Hotpoint Aquarius will handle the laundry of a medium sized family with ease. One complete adult outfit is about 1kg, so you’ll get nearly a weeks’ worth of washing for one person done in one go! Both the wash and spin performance have been given an A rating, which means you’ll be getting the best clean results, and your clothes will be as dry as possible before they go into the dryer. You’ll love the quick wash too, as it can get a small load done and clean in just 30 minutes!

"so far so good"

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: long wash cycles

"Have only put 3 washes through so far, but happy enough with the washing performance of this machine.

As per every other washing machine review I've read, the standard wash cycles seem to take an unneccesarily long time (around 3hrs). I timed the "quick wash" at about 1 hour, with the spin taking a good 8 minutes alone - is that really necessary Hotpoint? The last 5 minutes spinning take out, what, a teaspoon of extra water... I can see the pump failing early having all those wasted minutes of dry-pumping!

Regards spin noise, it's ok, not excessively noisy, except I've noticed an annoying rattling noise which seems to be coming from a vibration in the door handle mechanism.

An interesting caveat that Hotpoint put in the user guide is an instruction to turn off the water supply when the machine is not in use, to reduce the risk of leakage. Wow, Hotpoint, really??!!

Above issues aside, the machine looks good, and is easy enough to operate. And no fancy digital displays to go kaput either!"

"Excellent Washing Machine"

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

Cons: cold fill only

"Really satisfied with my purchase, having previously owned a Hotpoint Aquarius I wanted to go for the same again. This model is much better with many more programmes and has a lovely fast spin, which is remarkably quiet. Didn't realise it was a cold fill only machine until it was delivered, but that is not too much of a problem."

"Good value machine, but limited"

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

Cons: Noisy, poor programming

"No fancy displays to go wrong, and an excellent access door that closes with a solid feel. Connections lined up nicely with those of the previous machine but there is only a cold water connection now, no hot (must be a combi boiler thing).

Programmes are easily understood but a step backwards on the Aquarius 1200 that it replaces. Let me explain; the old machine had a 30min wash cycle, and so does this, but it's limited to 800rpm as opposed to the old one's 1200rpm, even though you've selected 1600rpm (go figure). This means you have to select a drain and spin cycle (which gives you the full 1600 revs) AFTER the 30min wash, adding 15 more minutes to a cycle if you want full spin speed. Silly really. Clothes are still very damp after 800rpm.

You've left the same load in, so why can't it just spin at the speed you told it to under the programme you selected? It's noisier too, even at 800rpm. Oh well, that's progress for yer.

Can't fault ao.com - flawless!"

You’ll love the anti-bacterial programme, which is perfect if you’ve got little ones. This cycle will kill more bacteria and allergens then a regular wash, which is great if you have sensitive skin or allergies. The super/extra rinse programme is an additional setting that is great for allergies as it will remove as much detergent as possible.

There’s also an easy iron option, which is cracking if you hate being behind your ironing board. This wash is very careful with your clothes, ensuring they tangle less, giving you fewer deep creases.

This machine also has anti-stain technology, which is going to power through those hard to remove stains like grass and chocolate. In fact, it will get rid of 20 of the most difficult stains, all without using really high temperatures. Brilliant!
