Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It does a good wash & gets the clothes clean.
Bad points:
I updated my Hotpoint 12 rpm spin washing machine to a 14 rpm spin, but it's not as good as my old one! The clothes come out wetter than before & therefore takes longer to dry in my tumble dryer. Not at all impressed & wouldn't buy another Hotpoint! :(

Manufacturer's Description

Make your laundry days as easy and hassle free as possible with the Hotpoint HE8L493P Washing Machine in a classic white finish.

Fit more in

With an ample load capacity of up to eight kg, the HE8L493P Washing Machine is perfect for busy households, making it easy to fit more into one load, saving time and money.

Leaving only 53% of water after each wash, the 1400 rpm helps clothes dry quicker so you can have your family’s favourite outfit clean and dry in no time.

Care that suits each load

With the HE8L493P you’ll be able to tackle stubborn dirt and stains with any one of the 16 programmes and variable temperatures.

You’ll have the perfect cycles for all your delicate garments and underwear that requires gentle care with the selection of special care programmes such as Ultra Delicates, Silk or Lingerie settings.

Perfect for school shirts, the useful Shirt programmes reduces the amount of creases when washing to limit the time you spend ironing them.

The Woolmark Platinum Care wash offers you low spin speeds to stop any friction between clothes to keep them in the best condition for as long as possible.

This A+++ washing machine also has an Eco cycle for those who are more environmentally conscious using only the necessary without wasting any heat or energy. When in Eco mode, the HE8L493P will use less than the standard 52.7 litres per cycle, making it extremely cost effective to run.

The machine offers a choice of 16 cycles, so there’s a setting for every laundry day.

On hand to help

Check on wash cycle settings and other information using the dials and LED indicators to help you time your loading and unloading.

Fill your laundry room with practicality and functionality for easy use with the Hotpoint HE8L493P Washing Machine.
