Heather, Bridgwater Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Wadhing machine is good value for money and not too loud either. Mixture of cycles to suit your needs
Bad points:
Sounds daft but I didn't remove the travel bolts immediately. It's my first washing machine and I assumed the delivery man removed all necessary packaging but alas he didn't - I'd advise everyone to check so as not to make the same mistake as myself!

Good points:
Well, if it lasts as long as my previous Hotpoint (14 years) I will be well pleased!
Bad points:
I a not too sure that the cycles should be quite so long despite being able to adjust but I tend to do washing overnight and then I do not find time so annoying!?

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I understand technology is improving all the time and that (for the purposes of capitalism) companies have to bring new models every year, but I am SO glad I was able to by the particular OLDER model. I’d say we’re an average married couple who use the machine up to four times a week (clothes – multiple times a week, towels – every ten days or so, bedsheets – every two weeks, bathmats – change every week and the wash four in one go once a month). We don’t separate whites from colours, we don’t have any delicates, so all I needed was something that could handle 7kg and do a 40 degree wash at around the hour mark. This can do all that, it can actually do a 40 degree wash in well under an hour (45mins!)… so I actually do 60 degree washes that have cycle time of an hour! Also, I load the machine set the machine to start at a much later time – meaning I can load the machine at night – have it start at 5am-or whatever so it’s just finishes by the time I get up in the morning (means the wet clothes don’t sit in closed machine for too long). Bought it for the £300 mark (which is a really good price I reckon. Because Hotpoint is known for its washing machines unlike other makes which sell washing machine for much cheaper). My mum has had a Hotpoint for years and never really looked after it (i.e. set it to the cleaning cycle/cleared pump thing at the bottom etc etc) – yet it’s lasted pretty well.
Bad points:
It is noisy – but that doesn’t bother (we have a separate kitchen with door – but the sound still travels around the flat) me. Have used it multiple time every week since November 2015 – and only once were the clothes soaking wet once the cycle had finished – so had to do an extra spin… rinse (or whatever it is) cycle to sort that. Even though I use the Detol laundry product in the draw bit (in addition to the actual ball of liquid detergent in the drum itself) – the clothes don’t come out smelling of obviously pleasant or particularly fragrant – BUT THEY DEFINATELY COME OUT CLEAN. They just have quite a neutral or smell of nothingness, that’s all.
