    Product Overview

    This Hotpoint washing machine will help you effortlessly tackle the week’s laundry. Because it has a 9kg drum capacity, it’s great for medium-sized households. And if you go through detergent too quickly, AutoDose technology automatically uses the right amount in every load, so you won’t have to guess. There’s also a Steam 3.0 function that adds vapour to get rid of bacteria, as well as getting rid of wrinkles, so say goodbye to drabby dresses. Plus, the Anti-Allergy programme is perfect if you have sensitive skin (or if hay fever hits you hard), as it removes 99.9% of allergens by using higher temperatures and extra rinses. 

    Key Features

    • 9kg drum capacity - great for medium-sized households

    • Steam 3.0 - get rid of bacteria, refresh and soften

    Great washing machine and so quiet

    5/5
    Bought another Hotpoint as our old machine had been going for 12 years. Excellent performance so far and we are doing fewer washes now as out old machine was only 6kg. Extremely quiet, even on spin cycle, so. Ideal for an open plan environment.
    Ian

    Good product - liking it so far!

    4/5
    Still getting used to all the features - but know that Hotpoint is a good reliable brand. Good large drum and really quiet spin - seems really efficient and overall I’m pleased.

    5/5
    Love the automatic dosing, makes doing the laundry so much quicker. The light in the drum means you never leave that "stray white sock" that ends up in the next "colour" wash again. Select silent mode and you wouldn't know it was on, perfect for open-plan kitchen -diners.

    • Connection
      Price
      £25

      We want you to get up and running straight away with your new appliance, which is why our expert team will connect your new item to your water pipes and make sure everything is working properly. Connecting it yourself? Make sure you remove the transit bolts. These will make a loud rattling sound if they’re left in place when you run a cycle. 

    • Remove & Recycle

      Regular price
      £20

      If you’ve bought a new appliance but you don’t want us to connect it for you, all you’ll need to do is disconnect your old one and empty it, ready for us to pick up.

      If you haven’t bought a new appliance, we can still collect your old one and take it away for recycling. Our experts will recycle it safely and responsibly in our state-of-the-art facility.

      The cost of our Remove & Recycle service goes towards safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are primarily covered by the product manufacturer.

      Also, while we’re picking up your appliance, if you’ve got any smaller kitchen electricals that need recycling – such as kettles, toasters or blenders – we’ll happily take those away too at no extra charge. Just pass them to your driver when we’re picking up your larger appliance.

    • Disconnection
      Price
      £10

      We’ll disconnect your old freestanding appliance when we deliver your new one

      • This includes the tricky job of disconnecting it from your water pipes

      Make delivery even easier by selecting all three connection and disconnection services in the basket. In one trip we can:

      • Disconnect and recycle your old appliance
      • Safely install your new one

      Just a quick note: if you’re buying a freestanding appliance to replace an old integrated one, we won’t be able to disconnect it

    • Unpack

      Appliances come with quite a bit of bulky packaging. We’ll unpack your item, let you inspect it then take away all of the plastic wrap and foam packaging.
