    Product Overview

    This washing machine from Hoover is a great choice to keep your clothes at their best. It has an 8kg drum capacity, which is perfect for medium-sized households. ActiveCare technology uses the perfect combination of detergent and water to give clothes a really deep clean, making it ideal for removing stubborn stains. If you’re dashing around your home doing all the chores, you can keep an eye on the laundry from your phone using the hOn app, so you’ll be able to check when a cycle is finished if you’ve another one lined up. Plus, this model is great for open-plan living, thanks to the Eco-Power motor. Because it uses magnets instead of noisy brushes, it’s not only longer lasting, but much quieter to run too, meaning you can even have it on at night.

    Measuring up tips

    This is a freestanding washing machine, so it won’t fit behind an integrated kitchen cupboard door. Just make sure you measure the space where you want the washing machine to live and add 7cm onto the depth to make sure there’s enough space for the pipes needed to connect the appliance.

    Washing machine

    5/5
    Quiet, efficient and attractive machine. It performs beautifully and the clothes were never as clean.

    Hoover H wash 500 washing machine

    4/5
    Washes well but abrupt opening and closing of the water inlet valves causes a noise throughout our pipework, this did not happen with our previous machine. Easy to load through it's large door, and the 15 minute rapid care care wash is very useful and efficient.

    Very pleased

    5/5
    Used it a good few times since installation as had a backlog of washing. Nice quiet machine and no problems so far. Not figured out the WiFi yet, but you don't have to use that. Nice that it is not too deep as I had limited space hence purchasing this machine. Really big door opening so easy to load and unload.

    • 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

      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.
