I'm on my 3rd Hotpoint......bearings have never lasted more than 3 years and I need a new one now; one where you don't need ear defenders and one that is built to last.

just check hotpoint ebay - the 35% code prices appear to have been already discounted there - not such a good deal

Don't waste your money, This will be in the landfill within 3 years.

Hotpoint is just a sub brand of Indesit and Indesit is owned by Whirlpool the US appliance's brand. The one thing that connects all three brands is poor reliability. The best low cost washing machine brand is Beko, mid-range Bosch and higher up Miele although personally I don't think Miele represents good value nowadays as they are only marginally more reliable than Bosch which is only marginally more reliable than Beko. About 2-3% difference between each brand in failure rate.

Whatever you buy you should get a washing machine with a long warranty that includes both parts and labour. Even Miele has something like a 8% failure rate. Washing machines are mechanical devices with a lot of moving parts. It's not hard to find a washing machine with 5 years full warranty for sub £300 that would equal £60 a year or less for guaranteed use or just £5 a month.

You could have this one for just over £300 after you've paid for the 5 year warranty on top and got about £10 back via top cashback.

or this one for about £288 after cashback

It just doesn't make sense to pay £200 on a washing machine that can fail shortly after warranty and then be looking to purchase a replacement. Better to have at least 5 years of guaranteed use from a higher quality washing machine and actually save yourself a lot of money for just a small initial increase in price. Last time I looked at Hotpoint (indesit) washing machines figures they were down at something like 66-72% reliability that is a 28 to 34% failure rate.

Unfortunately, we bought a Hotpoint after going through 2 Bosch machines in 5 years- the engineer said to buy a cheap one and throw it when it breaks down. Seven years down the line and it's still going strong....... Maybe they have changed.

Hi, I am looking for a 9 KG machine - where do we check these reliability / failure % ratings please? and also how are Samsung machines please?

The best advice I can give based on what I have researched - is check for whether it has a sealed drum, whether it has a filter flap at the front for easy access.

The best machines are the ones that are made with the best engineering and parts but also the best for repair. Machines nowadays are made not to be repaired so many sealed parts which reduces manufacturing costs (the iphone approach to washing machines lol)

You wouldn't buy a car that didnt have a bonnet that couldn't be removed to do a repair so dont buy a washing machine that cannot be repaired easily.

When you buy a new washing machine you get first 12 months labour and parts manufactors guarantee on it anyway where did you get 5 years from or was it Samsung because Hotpoint never give 5 years guarantee

My 20 month old Beko Eco 8Kg washing machine bought for a bargain £232 failed last week. After investigating I found it was the motor. It, like many ECO AAA+ machines use a induction motor, which have a pile of on board complexity to simulate the needed energy pattern they need to magnetically induce the motor to turn. The motor costs as much as a new machine to replace.
It's a common story that these machines are built to fail and be replaced shortly after the 1 yr warrenty is over.
I will be claiming a repair back from the retailer - legally we have the expectation of a reasonable period of using the goods.
The machines which last 15 years + (like my old one) don't have complex induction motors, they have motors which are simple, rarely fail, and have replaceable carbon brushes to turn the motor which only cost £12 to replace. All repairs apart from the control board and motor on washing machines cost buttons and are easy to do.

Yes you can do but you should factor in how much your are paying for that insurance. Coop electrical does it at cost so its less than £100 typically but many others charge much more and in the case of monthly payments like AO much, much more. Also if you buy an unreliable washing machine and rely on the warranty then clearly you may have frequent visits which is your time wasted.

Which do the reliability survey for the uk as sadly general domestic don't release figures on failure rates for their insurance policies. You can get free or low cost trials for Which which is worth doing. I tend to do a free or £1 trial every 2 to 3 years or so.

Hotpoint - no thanks!

I've had water leaking out the front of the soap tray on a couple of washing machines, both had blocked and partially blocked water nozzles caused by soap powder in the holes above the tray, my current one also had black mould partially blocking one of the two crossing inlet jets at the back so that most of the water would miss the conditioner section of the draw.

Except that an induction motor, if it and its driver circuit are built properly, is so much better than a brushed motor. It is quieter (the brushes are what make the noise), it is more efficient and it doesn't require maintenance (brush replacement). All washing machines have electronic control anyway - it's what enables the motor to run at different speeds.

Good stuff and I agree. However, it seems that Co-op's extended warranties are the same price regardless of brand. Well at least the one for the model you link to and a Hotpoint are the same. The Hotpoint is £10 cheaper (only ~5%) but then it has 1kg less capacity and a slower spin (1200 vs 1400rpm - and there's a square law relationship going on so that's more significant than it seems). Both would lead to less stress on the drum bearings, the failure of which I believe is a prime cause of expensive repairs. I wonder if the reliability of this reduced performance Hotpoint is considered similar to the Beko?

The insane rush for efficiency at the expense of reliability effectively creates more waste and inefficiency - machines are built to meet pointless efficiency targets but not reliability targets.

The black mould that many see in their washing machine is caused by washing at low temperatures you should wash at a very high temp every so often so that you clean the machine and prevent mould growth.

You can run it at 90 deg until your electricity meter engages warp drive, but it won't get rid of the mould in the nozzles and in and around the soap drawers. - in fact it might even make it worse as it steams more!
