DO not buy hotpoint, they are utter crap these days. Pay a few pounds extra and buy a Bosch, Siemens, Zanussi, Electrolux, or Miele which will last longer and be better for the enviroment.

"Hotpoint washing machines come with a free 5 year parts guarantee to offer you complete peace of mind." This is worthless as they will rip you off with the call out and labour costs which are NOT free. If they really had faith in the quality they would offer free parts AND labour.

Couldn't agree more, my last one lasted 18 months with the common hotpoint bearing failure. A bearing & seal kit's about £20, the labour's over £100. They also closed down manufacturing in peterborough this year, couldn't care less about the british. Google hotpoint & find out for yourselfs. No disrespect to the OP.

totally disagree with the anti hotpoint comments, my hotpoint is now 6 years old never had a thing wrong with it always overloaded and is used daily.... prior to that I had a zanussi and will never touch another the engineer was in and out to it all the time, as was my bosh top of the range diswasher I now have changed that to hotpint and never had any problems with that either.

Apparently it is increasingly common for some manufacturer's new washing machines, particularly the budget ones from the lower quality manufacturers (hotpoint included it seems) to come with completely sealed tubs and under sized bearings these days, so the bearings may not last very long, and a worn bearing on such a machine will require a whole new tub and drum assembly and could cost over 200 quid in parts alone.

My last machine was a Hotpoint, it lasted 9 years, although the first set of bearings did fail after just 12 months (I believe there was a design fault in the model I had) and our previous 2 washing machines were Hotpoints also. Unfortunately Hotpoint is now just an Indesit brand, and I gather the quality has suffered. Which? magazine rate them as below average for reliability.

My current machine isn't a Hotpoint, and I won't be buying Hotpoints in future, although I do regret not fixing my old machine. My new machine is more costly to run as like most modern machines it lacks a hot fill so has to heat the water electricaly rather than using the gas heated hot supply.

May seem like a good price, avoid like the plague though. We had the washer dryer version of this model until recently, the machines are not well made at all and are very loud, this goes for the washer or washer dryer model.

We had 3 engineers out in 9 months and hotpoint wanted to keep repairing it, in the end I had to get trading standards involved and send out 2 letters to the retailer, one warning of action, when that was ignored another stating 7 days of impending small claims action.

I then got a full refund from the retailer and a nice sum towards a better machine, buy a BOSCH. Research before you buy, it's crap, sorry.

Well we had a Wirlpool, lasted 14 monthe and the bearings have gone in the drum, after many calls and emails , the bottom line was " Many of our customers feel the benifit of taking out extra insurance " Great dont buy anything from them.
