You can really load tall wine glasses.
The bottom tray falls off the 'rails', tipping the tray over and potentially damaging parts.

Barbara, Scunthorpe Frequent user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's a very good wash on the normal cycle as that is what I use mostly, though the pre wash is good it seems to take forever. There is plenty of room for stacking after a Sunday 2 course lunch for 6 adults and 2 children. The machine is very quiet especially compared to my old one. It basically does what it says and very too, I'm very pleased with this product.
Bad points:
My only complaint with the machine is that you get the Finish triple whatever tablets free with the washer, no problem there you think, but I had to call the engineer because we had a problem with a missing part for the outlet pipe and he told me that even for hard water areas if your salt and rinse aid were kept full you only need to buy the shops own value dishwasher tablets and not the hugely expensive ones the dishwasher came with as they are the 3 in 1 and basically you are overloading the salt and rinse aid which could cause discoloring, milky looking glasses etc which is what happened to me. I have done that since April 2013 and it has washed perfectly ever since. It's a shame it can't be written on all the blurb instead of pushing the expensive one, but sadly it is all down to advertising and trying to get more money out of us, so don't be fooled.

Good points:
The pause button, much easier to unscrew and acces the filter than the previous model, better designed cutlery basket and choice of positioning it.

Good points:
Good Value and does the job well. Both my previous Hotpoint dishwashers have lasted 15 years each!!! No problems with either. Like the hot fill facility on this machine as it runs from my combination boiler.
