BROWNLIE, Frequent user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Simple to use. Quiet spin.
Good value for price I paid.
Bad points:
The 1400 spin is only available with long programmes like the one lasting 3 hours. The quick wash has a very low spin speed at the end and requires a separate spin making the quick wash not so quick after all. I choose mainly the 1 hour anti stain wash which has a 1200 spin included though that still leaves the washing wetter than I would have liked. Needed a new valve as it arrived broken and filling up with water constantly. Hotpoint only interested in my paying for a service guarantee so I had to get an independent engineer to explain the problem to me as Hotpoint said if it was something I had done I would have to pay to have it fixed. The engineer said it needed a valve even though it was brand new. He also said he had done a similar repair recently on the same model which he said was an Ariston model which now traded under the Hotpoint name. However it is about one year old now has so far had no further faults. Door hinge a little fragile as far as build quality goes.

Geraldine, Yeovil Busy mum or dad

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The machine has a timer to let you know how long before the wash cycle ends.
Finding that you can change wash times and temperatures on some of the cycles is a bonus. It also has a good spin at 1400 so washing dries much sooner.
Bad points:
The machine door feels a little flimsy and surplus water can gather in the machine door seal

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The economy cycle is great as my clothes rarely get very dirty and all they need is freshening up quickly.
Bad points:
I am not keen on the detergent & conditioner dispenser. Why a rotating system?
