Was £999.99.......hmmmmmm...slightly inflated RRP?
#4
Good find. But who are the kidding. A grand for a normal washing machine, or am I being a typical man that doesn't understand kitchen appliances?
#5

I bought a Hoover Optima OPH714D 16 months ago and its just developed a fault with the heater - not happy! Lucky this model hasn't got a digital display by the looks of it, if you don't get the selector knob in exactly the right spot on ours it plays havoc with the display too - so thats probably faulty as well! Hoover very 'generously' give you free parts cover for 5 years but they still charge you £110 for a callout, irrespective of how long it takes to fix. I'm considering taking it up with the retailer I bought it off under the Sale of goods act, but its just a big pain in the backside!

p.s. I'd research this model a bit more if you are interested in it, I'm not sure its the bargain it appears! Not voting BTW.

hi prof
im sure that if the plug is a moulded one ie you have to cut the wire to put another on then it must have a 2 year guarrantee by european law.
quote this to the supplier. im sure they just ignore it to suit them
pete

or of course check this with your local cab centre

Do yourself a favour and get a Bosch you will not regret it. £313 at John Lewis, and the best thing Comet can price match it so it works out better through comet as they currently have free delivery and installation.

Thanks, I will take a look when I get home but the guarantee I looked at said 12 months and their service centre said the same thing when I rang up. I've sent a letter to their customer service manager to let him know what I think of the product, not that it will get me anywhere! As mentioned above best to get something better than Hoover, like a Bosch. My previous washer was Bosch and had it for around 10 years. Only problem I can remember with it was a drum support spring that snapped after about 4-5 years causing the drum to drop down and out of line. Bosch customer service were excellent, they found out the parts I needed and sent them free of charge. I also bought a reduced end of line Bosch dishwasher last year and the connection hose was missing - again Bosch customer service sent one out free.

Have to say I've had my Hovver washing machine for 3-4 years now and it has been fantastic so I can't knock the brand myself!

This orignal £999rrp on this I think is an error as normally retails around the £300.00 mark. Much better deals do be had, I got my AAA rated 6kg Hoover for around £190.00 from comet and was able to take it away the same day.

I think this is a good explanation of what you mean here. It looks like its worth a shot but I'm dealing with Marshall Ward here so I don't hold any hopes out. I recently had to argue over a built in cooker from Tesco that developed a fault after 11 months use. Problem is I had the cooker for 15 months as the kitchen was waiting to be fitted for 4 months so it was out of the 12 months warranty. I eventually got a cheque for £150 out of Tesco, they didn't even bother to ask for a report or send anyone round after initially referring me back to the manufacturer and playing dumb. It all gets a bit frustrating though and I don't know if I can be bothered to go through it all again - it just makes me mad that prouducts don't last like the manufacturers would have you believe.
