thanks, yea i am having problems adding a direct link ,when ever i post a deal it happens.

Was £999.99.......hmmmmmm...slightly inflated RRP?

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?

poor spec in product info as well ,cold!

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.

NOOOOOOOOOOO dont buy a hoover....the biggest load of carp i have ever had!!!!!!!!

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.
