Features we love

My Cycle

Take the hard work out of washing with the smart My Cycle option. This brilliant feature remembers your favourite washing programmes - including any adjustments you make to the spin speed and temperature. Simply press and hold the button to store your most-used cycles to the machine’s memory.

Time Saver

When you’re in a hurry, the Time Saver function on this Hotpoint washing machine will come in really handy. With a simple press of a button, this option can reduce the duration of certain cycles by as much as 50% - which saves both water and energy. It’s best for uses on loads that aren’t heavily stained and will mean that you won’t have to wait around if you need a shirt clean in time for work.

Woolmark Green Certification

This gentle programme uses low temperatures and a slow spin cycle to carefully wash delicate items such as wool, cashmere and hand-wash only garments. Awarded with the highest Green Certification from Woolmark, you can wash your winter favourites with complete confidence.

Great washing machine!

This washing machine is brilliant, it does everything I want it to do and is the best machine I've owned. Not only does this machine look great but with its big 8kg drum and 1600 spin, it washes clothes brilliantly and they come out a lot drier than my previous 1400 machine. I was also surprised at how quiet it is, even when on full spin, it purrs along and then beeps to let you know when the cycle is finished. It has a lot of good features but my favourite is the child lock, this stops little fingers (and little cat paws in my case) from accidentally changing your settings or stopping/starting the machine. Although it has a lot of really useful cycles that I'll probably never use, my top 3 are the cottons, bed & bath and the 1 hour fast wash, all 3 of these give the full 1600 spin which can be reduced if needed and the temperature can also be changed if necessary, on all of the cycles. There is also a 30 minute fast wash which is very handy if your'e short of time. The washing liquid drawer is nice and big and easy to fill with liquids or powders, this is a big improvement on my old machine which often caused me to spill washing liquid down the front. The drawer is removed in a slightly different way to every other machine I've owned, but this was fairly easy to work out after reading the instructions and having a few goes. I found this machine very easy to install (though helpful to have 2 people) and even easier to use. I've struggled to find any bad points, my only criticism is the fact that because of it's shiny black finish, it does tend to show every bit of dust, but that really is me struggling to find a negative. Overall, it's a great washing machine which I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Pros: Ease to use, Looks good, Quiet Cons: Expensive

Hotpoint WMAO863K

The Hotpoint WMAO863K 8kg washing machine was really easy to install. All I had to do was remove the drum bolts, connect the waste pipe, attach the cold water hose and plug into the electricity. It's a really stylish machine and looks really good. The machine has an 8kg capacity drum which I found was easily large enough to complete full loads for our family of 5. There are loads of different wash options to suit whatever your needs are but my favourite is the Fastwash 30. This completes a full wash cycle for lightly soiled items in 30mins. Perfect if you are in a rush. Another handy feature is the countdown timer indicating how long until the wash completes, this is great for planning whether someone will be about to take the washing out which is essential in a busy household like ours. I was also impressed with the safety features of the appliance. Firstly the machine will turn itself off 30mins after the wash cycle completes. This stops the worry of leaving the machine unattended if you need to go out. The 2nd safety feature I really liked was the child lock. Once activated, the machine can't be turned off, the programme can't be changed & any tampering or pressing buttons results in a loud bleep alerting me that one of my young children are interfering with the machine. I found the cycle delay timer very useful as it allowed me to load the machine at night, set the delay timer & the machine would come on first thing in the morning saving me time while getting kids ready and getting ready for work. The machine is very quiet compared to our previous machine which was a leading brand and only 2.5yrs old so I am very impressed with it. I would certainly recommend this machine, I have nothing negative to say about it and having not previously purchased any Hotpoint products I would have no hesitation in doing so in the future.

Pros: Child Lock, Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet

Awesome washing machine - does everything we need and more

Our old washing machine had started to play up so we needed a new one and chose the Hotpoint WMAO863K. Despite not installing a washing machine before, I managed to install this without any issues. It was just a matter of taking out the transit bolts, connecting the cold water pipe, plugging it in and moving it into place. It's standard sized so fitted into the gap where our previous washing machine had been. I really like the look of the washing machine with its black outer, silver buttons and LED display. It also has a particularly large door which makes it easy to put washing in and out, as well as a big, clear porthole to keep an eye on progress. With an 8kg drum, it's a good capacity for a family with a toddler who seem to wash clothes all of the time! In addition, this Hotpoint has an energy rating of A+++, which is as efficient as it can get and is good to know when we use it so often. When it comes to washing clothes, there's 12 different wash programmes, including things like a baby programme and a bed and bath programme which are all preset with different spins and temperatures.. On top of this, you’re also able to do clever things like alter the spin speed and temperature of the water on the washes, then save the settings using the inbuilt memory called MyCycle. On certain cycles, you can also select the Time Saver function which speeds up your wash, plus there’s a delay timer so you can set the machine to start anytime in the next 24 hours. All buttons are labelled and it's quite intuitive to use. In terms of the little things, I really like the fact that the display shows a countdown of how long the washing machine cycle is left and the childproof lock means that my toddler can’t mess with the settings like she could with our old machine. The washing machine obviously makes a sound when switched on, but it's not unbearable. It's just the noise of a washing machine and is actually quieter than our previous one. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Hotpoint and would happily recommend it.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good
