Pauline , Wigan Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bought this as a replacement for my previous Hoover machine which I had been very happy with. So far it's living up to expectations although slightly noiser than it's predecessor.
The quick wash cycles are great and it automatically adjusts itself for a half load.
Spin speed is good. I think the 5yr parts guarantee is excellent.
Bad points:
Sometimes jumps around on spin cycle even thought not overloaded and noisier than my previous Hoover machine.
Also preferred my 8kg drum. 6kg seems quite small to me now but that's not the machines fault!

Good points:
good, efficient machine , spin speeds are exellent and the large drum although handy can cause problems, see below.
Bad points:
when washing bulky but lite items such as duvets not enough water is put into the machine resulting in an unsatifactory wash , this is all caused by the automatic half load which could do with a manual on/off switch .

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very large drum which takes a large family load. Nice big door. Very useful 29 minutes (30degC) and 44 minutes (40degC) cycles for clothes worn once with normal levels of soiling. Still washes really well when following reduced washing liquid soap usage suggested by manufacturer.
Bad points:
Soap dispenser is a bit flimsy as other reviews say.

Manufacturer's Description

Overview

Hoover’s Optima OPH148 is a bright white washing machine that’s able to wash 8 kilos of laundry at a time. It boasts an A+ rating for energy efficiency, and it’s equipped with 12 wash programmes, including wool, hand-wash, quick wash and pre-wash, allowing you to take care of a wide range of fabrics, whether they’re lightly or heavily soiled.

For added convenience the Hoover Optima OPH-148 has a large, 180°-degree porthole, which makes it incredibly easy to load. Plus, it offers a number of variable spins speeds (maximum of 1400 rpm), so you can opt for a high spin cycle if you want to reduce drying times. This is particularly handy for cottons.

Meanwhile, you can use the delayed timer to start the Hoover Optima OPH148 at a time that suits you, which is great for taking advantage of low off-peak electricity rates. Just prepare your laundry, pick a programme and the machine will begin at the time you’ve selected!
