Hotpoint = the brand that seems to be most commonly subject to an urgent recall...
make sure you factor in £120+ a year labour warranty that there is a good chance you will need, takes it to a machine with a proper 5 year warranty price tag. "cheap reputable branded washing machine" great joke there :) :) :)
1 year labour and 10 years parts warranty , Does that makes it worth buying this machine ?
Another reason, like T.V's is so they don't have to price match.
Exactly. I've had a few. An Indesit lasted me for years, a Bosch died after 2 years. JL one was like a tank till it just collapsed after 10 years. Miele was great till the guarantee ran out and it was a fortune for a call out and parts. Got a Hotpoint 3 years ago and it's been great. In fact probably better than the expensive ones we have had Like I say washing machines should be worked out by the price divided by how many years they last (y)
Anything but Hotpoint! There's even been a Bosch at this price point recently so why would anyone buy a rubbish and potentially dangerous Hotpoint?
Our kitchen had all Hotpoint company appliances. Washer, oven, hob, extractor, fridge freezer and drier. Bought in 1997. Hob is still perfect, oven - changed a bulb, washer replaced with a newer model off a family friend after 10 years (only replaced the brushes), the replacement washer - I replaced the bearings when I inherited it (5 years later, with no other repairs, I updated to a larger capacity machine), the fridge freezer needed a door seal after about 14 years - updated to a new larger capacity model, the extractor - I replaced the motor after about 15 years (the extractor is still going strong, the drier was replaced due to the problems some had a few years ago (when it was replaced, it was working fine and it hadn't hadn't had any repairs) the replacement is still going strong. That's good going as far as I am concerned.

Hotpoint NM111064WCAUKN 10Kg Washing Machine with 1600 rpm - White - A+++ Rated - £369 with code @ AO£369£3998% off Free P&P Freeao Deals
Honestly we get loads in ours, more than the 8kg we had originally and more than the 9kg Samsung we had before this for a few months before it went back. If I think about machines of old you could still get in a kingside set so nit sure why yours wouldn’t. Might be worth dropping the manufacturer an email with pictures wondering if the size of the drum is incorrect. We can’t get a 10.5 tog super king duvet in iours but can get a 4.5 one.
But how much does your bedding actually weigh? Suppose it weighs 6kg. Do you think your machine will take another super king set in with the same load? Is it pushed in pretty tight? The point I'm making is that if these machines are supposed to take such heavy loads, what are these loads comprised of because I don't think it would be right to cram two sets of my bedding in my 10kg machine, it would be rammed in pretty tight.
we have a 10kg LG and get a superking, and two other single beds in at the same time without any issues, maybe you arent putting enough in it?
Sorry to hijack the thread, but does anyone have any opinion to voice on the capacity of washing machines? I have fairly good 10kg LG washer and I finally got around to weighing a load yesterday. I consider my LG to be pretty much full with a king size 800 thread count quilt cover, bottom sheet and pillowcases in it. Guess how much the load actually weighed? Just 4 kilos. How the heck could a 10kg machine ever fit a full load, and would it even be able to wash it effectively? Has anyone else ever bothered to weigh their washing and crammed in a full 10kg?
Avoid continental ovens like the plague, they do not cook evenly or anywhere near as well as a burner at the back of the oven, continental burners are under the base of the oven, I get non stop complaints about continental burners.
Missed that :)
Use the code LKA30 ;)
Would expect a twin oven grill combo at this price. My indesit came under this.
I have this cooker but with Fan oven. I would highly recommend a fan-assisted oven over a conventional one. My cooker also came with a big scratch at the bottom of the oven, which I didn't see until too late to complain. So, check it over inside out.

Screw Currys. Been waiting on a washing machine since Christmas eve. No order updates. Spent an hour on online chat waiting for update. Turns out no stock and no idea when it'll be back in stock. Had to cancel order, and hope they refund ASAP. Pretty desperate for a washing machine now!
"Stain removal to make sure your clothes always look their best" Wow, whatever next?
People still voting 'hot' on this - sick joke?
Hotpoint - come home to a real fire.

Just like car brands like volkswagen selling their products with different logos
Candy appliances are made by Hoover. Some Candy dryers I have been looking at are literally Hoover dryers with a Candy badge (not even cosmetic differences). Hotpoint also sell appliances under different brands such as Indiset. I have had no problem with previous Hoover/candy products but I would never buy a Hotpoint brand again, others may disagree.
I need a new one, Candy any good?
As I understand it you contact them on their number, they send out their nominated Technician - Hotpoint charge you a certain 'rate for the labour' and give the part for free. This way the Technician and Hotpoint are encouraged to spend time repairing rather than replacing - which of course is labour intensive. An independent Tech will swap out the part rather than messing about trying to fix it as labour is expensive. This is my opinion of how it works. No manufacturer can afford to offer a 10 year parts and labour warranty (not sure if Miele do?) - unless there's a catch somewhere.
Any ideas how this works are you supposed to use their tradesmen to carry out the repair and order the parts?

So I bought Beko Condenser Pro DCX93150W from Currys for £279 minus voucher for £20 and I'm happy like Larry. No problems, quick drying time (as some people complain on it-3h of drying), little noise doesn't realy bother me, as at least I know when it finished job and I have to take of loundry out. Thanks for advice
If you're looking for a stop gap Beko is a solid bet. John Lewis do a condenser one for 300 if you find it in stock. Good ratings and also good score on which I believe. Looks nice too. It's exclusive to John Lewis but you can find virtually the same device through retailers like ao if you care to look around.
It is a dilemma. I am actually burying my head in the sand on it to be honest. If we turn it off and on 3 or 4 times it will finish a load but clearly it’s broke. I was going to look this week for January sales but one thing for sure, never a Bosch again! Sorry it is not much help but I am lost .. hoping some good branded bargain appears.
So what did you bought? I'm on fence also. I need it ASAP (in 1-2weeks time), but I can't make my mind. Tumble dryers have short warranty and IMO there is no point spend to much on it, as savings from heat pipe you'll see after couple years and question is: will it work for couple years? In 2-3 years plan i wish to change/refurbish my kitchen so I'll get rid most of non-build in appliances (with big loss), so I don't see any point to spend to much. How to trust recommendations as cheap Candy (9 and 10kg models) have mixed reviews? Same with Beco? 4.5 star, but so many people complain on noise, leaks and poor Customer Service. You can spend double, but leading manufactures every so often are making crappy models... So did you made your mind? Any advice for me?
If only my utility room wall didn’t border my lounge but good point. I would love to avoid another as outside vented best. I bought an expensive Bosch one. 3 repairs in first 11 months so they replaced with new with 1 month guarantee. 5 years later it has died again. Not sure what to buy. You cannot trust Bosch anymore.

I'd buy this but my Neff still going strong after 16 years
Wish this was a Miele
Just a warning, I bought one of these (from their eBay shop) and it developed a fault after 14 months. Hotpoint refused to replace/fix unless I bought into an annual warranty which cost 85% of the cost of a new dishwasher. Would never buy from these people again. Just my ten pence worth.
£200 can't complain at this price. Thanks OP

Yea with d&g? Goodluck. All they do is cover you... everything else you still need to gonthrough hotpoint. Last summer I had to take legal action as I was left without a washer dryer for over 30days. Eventually they replaced it with a new one but kept the old one in the flat along with all the parts that were supposed to be used to fix it. Had to call council and pay to collect and recycle. It happened again with the new one just over a year old and it broke down for 30days and was fixed this Sunday. No compensation, no complaints department no one gave 2 s**ts from hotpoint and d&g have nothing to say. Goodluck.
That is probably true, hence I went for the care & repair plan as well. £2.00 per month - £24 per year for peace of mind (y)
I would stay away from new hotpoint or whirlpool products.... ive had a nightmare over the last 6years since moving to our new place. Washer dryer constantly breaking down. Oven constantly breaking down... customer service and repair time is ridiculous and no compensation offered. Spend a little more and get a brand you can rely on.
We have an EW74P which looks almost identical to this. It's coming up to 10 years old now and has been pretty much faultless, it's used everyday. The only things replaced were the top oven Thermostat at around six years old (£20) and only a few weeks ago the grill element (£15),it was used almost everyday so it lasted well....both simple DIY jobs if you are keen enough to have a go, plenty vids on YouTube etc,the grill took 10 mins to fix. If it's built the same as the older model it's a decent cooker.

HOTPOINT Aquarius TCFS 93B GP 9 kg Condenser Tumble Dryer - White £219.99 at Currys PC World£219.99Currys PC World Deals
Looking for tumble dryer and found this one . Seems like a good deal £80 off from the main price!
Well my tumble dryer from them was part of a recall program because quite a few of them were catching fire and guess what? The replacement got recalled also. I agree here, no way would I buy from these brands again.
Only a few models had safety recalls a couple of years back but overall they have far fewer recalls than any other budget manufacturer. Personally I swear by Beko appliances. Our washing machine is 7 years old and has been faultless. Our fridge and cooker are newer than that but have also provided excellent service thus far.
Thanks. Beko were unsafe a few years back. Have they improved safety.
Spamming???? Fake News. I had to get a new washing machine so was looking around. I posted low budget, Mid range budget and premium budget for Washing Machines and Washer Dryers, even poitning out extra discount for people in addition to the Currys 10% off code for items in some cases, already reduced. I also left product feedback on the item I actually purchased too which was a Samsung Washer Dryer. When the time is right, you'll probably see me posting deals for things like routers or Microsoft Office etc. and a range of other items NOT just one retailer as your fake news says. I'm guessing you troll other people too, so I will simply not let you concern me, as some people have been more positive in comments on my posts which does help when you are new to this.
I was merely pointing out a pointless fact just as you did, I have nothing against your pc related deals, I'm waiting intensely for your next one, come on its been 11 months (cheeky) The only issue I have is against people like yourself, who feel the need to post negatively on others deals when they make the effort to post for the benefit of others. The op has made the effort to post 7 deals in the space of a day that have all gone hot and maybe helped others out. The op hasn't posted every single item from pcworld have they, it appears they posted only the items they deem a good "deal". Why is that an issue? Usually I find that the ones posting negatively either never post deals or hardly ever do and you fall into this category. Maybe it has upset you that the op has matched the amount of deals you have posted in nearly 9 years in just one day, I don't know (cheeky)
Ignore him op, all his deals are PC based, not sure what the issue is, think he may have donated his brain to science (cheeky)
Hotpoint Washer and Dryer, what could possibly go wrong?
and? I have only started posting. They are good deals when you factor in the extra 10% code AND if you are able to use a workplace employee perk scheme where you may get as much as 8.5% off as well if you pay with an instant gift voucher code. Its how I just bought my machine. On top of that, there is a small possibility that topcashback may still pay up, They don't always notice a discount code used....

You will get more life out of an LG than you ever will with a hotpoint that’s for sure. 8 years plus is good for a washer nowadays sadly though hotpoint washers come with a little friend who visits every few months unless you are really lucky. But you do pay the £120 for the visit though and some of them aren’t good talkers.
Good Luck. My LG broke down after 8 years. Was looked after and only average use. Was a washer dryer so not a cheap one.....
