Would recommend extending the warranty on this one.

Hotpoint aren't great machines. They are made by same company that makes Indesit and spec are similar. The plastic paddles inside the drum broke off on ours within a month of buying it and they refused a repair under warranty, saying that the damage had been caused by a coin or an item of clothing. Had to pay for them to fix it. Needless to say I would not purchase another Hotpoint/ Indesit machine.

Reference the paddles - They will only occasional come off if hit repeatedly, many, many times by heavy trainers.
Usually its caused by a foreign object getting in between the drums from clothing pockets - the foreign object smashes the fixings for the paddles and then eventually they come off.
My washer is about 8 years old and I have never had to touch anything on my hotpoint. Look after it and it will look after itself.
Example - I pulled a small cup full of coins out of a sump and the customer said that they were not hers.

Key word here is parts, pay a fortune for labour, when a company makes machines where you get to know the engineer by name and gave them on your Christmas card list you know they make bad machines

I had mine for 2 years so far the worst machine I bought it keeps making me pay for it to be fixed spent over £400 when it came out now it's not working again water doesn't come out changed the hose under the sink now it's the valve inside the machine today it came on had it on for 1hour 47min lowest wash set time with 20min remaining it stopped said rinceing on the electronic then it keeps blinking and it doesn't change then switched the machine off had to restart again with 20mins remaining its keeps blinking and nothing's comes on left it off now what could be the problem any help would be appreciated thanks I did call a engineer he said if replacing a item valve will cost £30 and call out charge is £30 so I will have to pay £60 don't know what to do

We grew up with hotpoint as it used to be a great brand, bought all new appliances for new kitchen, and had so many problems 2 dishwashers in 18 months, when it broke again took the hard decision to bin it but the washer we just paid the additional warranty for the labour for about 4 years but again it came to the point where enough is enough. Sadly you may be at that place as well, there are plenty of good makes out there that won't keep costing you, it's a big decision to take but like cars you get to the point where you say enough is enough

This seems a good replacement proper 5 year warranty by the looks of it though I haven't checked past the title

Is there any water inside the machine?

Read the reviews on Hotpoint machines before buying one. I wish I had because I definitely would have gone for a different make had I done so.

Are hot point reliable
