All Hotpoint Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
At least it didn't catch fire like all the others
Why anyone would buy a hotpoint after the dryer fiasco is beyond me. Even if they were a great brand which sadly hasn’t been the case for well over a decade any company that takes that long to fix them doesn’t deserve customers.
Go for it! Our hotpoint managed to brake after 13 months, warranty was for 12 months. After arguing with them they agreed to fix it for £60 instead of £120. Quoted EU legislation, 2 years warranty, they fixed it. Main board broken, basically the most expensive part. Lasted 4 months (they suggested the warranty for repair is 3 months), broke again, now arguing with them. Hotpoint for me? Never again. It was a different model, but misleading customer service. Did not vote.
Looking at the other stuff ie washer/dryers this site is still 20% more expensive than other places even after using the code.
I knew this was going to get hot lol (party)
Nothing "Smart" when it breaks down. Load of junk. Want a cheap washing machine then buy a Beko. Want a decent washing machine then buy an LG.
Shhh don’t tell anyone, it’s worth it’s weight in gold :)
I have a Hotpoint washer I bought second hand around 5 years ago. Never had a problem with it.
£229 plus minimum of £100 labour charge / warrant for second year, £100 extra for third year makes it expensive you can get better ones with better warranty for the price if paying just one extra year labour.
Hotpoint = A load of junk .
Hi This very good quality n heavy rest all are very light material..
This or a George foreman?
Looks a bit too big for the back of the cupboard.
Ordered cheers Dude
You did wayyyyyy better than me, as I personally didn't know what the hell to make of it?, hehehehe. I know now, obviously ... :-D
I'm no expert but I've always kept them separate as I don't like the idea of combining two heavy-duty devices into the same unit, large heating coils and water are not an ideal combination. Personally we live in an old (read plenty of healthy airflow) house so we always dry indoors or line dry unless it's urgent. (y)
Thanks everyone for commenting, I will go for high end products , like grundig, samsing, lg with 5 yr guarantee.. :/
Would never use another Hotpoint appliance. Washer died 11 months in, died again 2 months later and they were totally uninterested in repairing and just wanted to sell me another appliance. Really poor product quality steer well clear.
thanks Roger, can you share your experience of the washer dryer concept. some reviews say it does not dry as good, or you have have a few goes to get it dry. doesn't sound economical in that case, but it is mixed reviews. not necessairyly this model, just about the washer dryer idea.
If the washing machine is as bad as the 3 links that do not work on here i'm out :/
Regardless, look how badly they have dealt with the situation. Numerous complains about their customer service. I don't have any appliance from this company
The incidents outlined has been identified as a technical issue with a very small percentage of washing machine production during periods of 2007 to 2009 could be affected. On becoming aware of the potential issue it was risk assessed under General Product Safety Regulations and was classified as ‘Very Low’ risk therefore it was concluded that no direct consumer notification was required. Model number: WMFUG942GUK Your model is not at risk Other than some tumble dryer issues, there's nothing in the last few years (meaning this model is included) that is a fire risk for washing machines. Find out for yourself: https://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/safety-notice
Difference is, when Samsung's phones started catching fire. They recalled them and fixed them quickly. This is an ongoing issue with Hotpoint and they are still not actually fixing the problem. Just because you got off scotch free it does not mean that these applicants do not have serious concerns over safety. This is not just a normal defect, it's not a part that is breaking sooner that expected. This is a design flaw in their appliances, one that is relatively easy to fix but too costly that they will do everything they can to ignore it. Sorry but you can usually pass a judgement about the morals of this company based on this fact. The last warning was issued in 2017, with 200, 000 members of the public waiting for a repair and millions still affected. Their washing machines and tumble dryers are a ticking time bomb, all it takes a little bit of flint to get on the motor and you have another house fire. They are not a good company on the basis they have no intention of fixing this. It's been years with this same problem, even the newer machines are affected by the same shabby engineer flaw If you want a Hot Point you will get one in your kitchen! Anyone who is awaiting a repair don't bother, demand a full refund from them instead. It's all OK until your house gets burnt down. InDesit, Hotpoint and Creda all the same OEM manafacturers
but take it at a deal level, its £211 for the washer, now add on any extra warranty you need at say £80 to £100 a year or even more if you go with the call out, for the labour charge and for 2 years its a £311 washer, want it to last 3 then its a £399 washer. Now if you are happy to take the risk and trust us its a big risk to go with just the standard 1 year warranty and hope it does not stop working then its a great price. However once you start adding on the labour call our or extra warranty for the labour side of the free parts warranty its expensive. If you are also happy with poor customer care, in general then this is the machine for you. If you think its disgusting how they have managed the dryer fiasco and not even consider the machine build quality you should stay away from them. How anyone can even try and defend a company that has not recalled or fixed all of the machines that have started fires is beyond me. As I said earlier any other company would have been long gone if they did this to their customer but like the phoenix these guys keep going because people think price over people lives, quality machines, good service :(
Back up to £89.99
Noticed a Saintsbury's microwave/grill (800w/1000w) for £60 in store today
hOTPOINT never again sorry even with this price.
The Gusto combi one at £89 is still available
Thanks For Posting (y)
Never had a problem with 4 Hotpoint products, two fridge freezers and two washing machines, I dont think they are worth paying more than you would for a Beko though so would always price up Beko as well, plump for whichever is cheaper.
Luckily sales 'experts' focused in the South Wales area aren't the ones that spend their hard earned cash on white goods all over the UK. They just want the commission so will say whatever they need to in order to push through a potential sale. If that means preying on unjustified, yet in all likelihood, isolated consumer fear of Hotpoint products then so be it. You claimed that Whirlpool/Hotpoint are highly unreliable yet still haven't provided any evidence to support that claim beyond you doing mystery shopping. I, along with many others I'm sure would be grateful if you could perhaps provide any evidence whatsoever to your claims against Whirlpool and associated brands beyond personal opinion.
I'll just leave this here. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/beko-cfg1552w-frost-free-fridge-freezer-17520-wcode-hughes-ebay-2965453 Anyone with a brain would buy a Beko over a Hotpoint. - I do a LOT of mystery shopping for many independent retailers across South Wales. My tasks predominantly are to assess what products are recommended. Most of the people I assess have significant background knowledge in the white goods sector, and I can honestly say this: The vast majority of independent sales experts refuse to sell or don't sell Hotpoint or other Whirlpool products because of their poor reliability or poor reputation. They tend to recommend Miele for washing machines if budget is high, and Beko for washing machines/fridges etc if budgets are low to moderate. You need to accept the fact that Hotpoint products are abysmal nowadays.
Risk? Let me put it this way. While driving a car, there is a low risk your tyres may suffer a puncture. Does that mean we shouldn't buy cars? No, it means when we use a car, a fridge freezer, a phone.. we accept that there's a small risk it may develop a fault or something may break. Did the Hotpoint appliance in the Grenfell disaster have a fault with that model to warrant a recall? No, according to the experts. Out of curiosity, do you have any factual data to back up your assertion that "Whirlpool make some of the least reliable white goods you can buy" or is it just a personal opinion? Reliability will vary depending on a number of factors. You can pay £1500 for a Bosch fridge freezer and see it break down or develop a fault within 12 months when someone else buys a £300 Hotpoint fridge freezer with no issues in the same time period. :D
A low risk is still a risk. Plus Whirlpool make some of the least reliable white goods you can buy. Not taking into account the fire element of my argument, you simply can't ignore that you can definitely buy something more reliable for a similar price, if not £50 more. I'd rather pay the little bit extra for quality.
I will never buy Hotpoint again. Bought top of their range microwave, hood and cooker. Microwave never worked from day one. They replaced it after an engineer came out to make sure my electricity supply was not to blame for the fault. Luckily it was a new extension with new certified wiring so could not use that excuse. Oven lasted 6 weeks and the touch buttons would not turn oven on, error f03, engineer came out could not fix it. Waited 3 weeks for parts. Engineer came back fitted parts oven did not work plus now door was locked. Said he will have to get another engineer out from whirlpool to calibrate the parts as he didn't know how to. Told him not to bother as I had been without an oven for a month. and ordered a neff instead.. Currently taking Very to court for refund. Oven still sat here. Oh and their 10 year guarantee is not worth the paper it is written on, hotpoint just want to sell you a care plan. They charge you for the labour under the guarantee but will not send you parts under the guarantee unless their engineer fits it at a high cost. E.g. Handle needs replacing, easy job to do yourself but they won't let you. The engineers even try to sell you products when they turn up. If you buy hotpoint be prepared for their arrogant useless customer service and salesmen, I mean engineers ! oh and big phone bil
I have 2 hotpoint appliances and will never buy from them again. The quality of product is poor and their customer service awful.
Nice find! Even better is Quidco code BICOOKING for another £25 off. Edit the OP, although it’s getting frosty anyway. Another 1% cashback too.
£20 gift card on £250 spend @ Vouchercloud https://www.vouchercloud.com/aocom-vouchers
Amazing, this works better than the real one and less than half the price at rrp.
What with the toy till posted earlier and now this, nothing like grooming your kids aspirations. Buy them a chemistry set or a raspberry pi :)
Problem is you can only wash your smalls in this.
Thanks, I ordered a couple of them as presents for my nephews.
Thanks, managed to get the Daewoo that was on sale which ticks most of the boxes. Turned out to be a bit of a frantic fridge freezer hunting day on Saturday...
Rubbish hotpoint don’t bother cheaply made, rubber seals have come apart from my fridge door and freezer, got a water leakage in the fridge and I I only bought it 14 months ago.Put a bit more money in and buy a decent fridge these don’t last long.
Hotpoint in my experience cheap and rubbish. Badly designed and they break down. Save your pennies for better brand
Clearence in fridge freezers might help (y)
Thanks OP, looks to be a good price. I'm looking for a fridge without the water dispenser and probably would've gone for this, even though it appears to have a plastic back. https://www.which.co.uk/news/2018/04/check-to-see-whether-a-fridge-freezer-fridge-or-freezer-is-a-safety-concern/
Same as me. Just got a call from the store now saying it has been cancelled that another person has reserved it, out of curiosity I asked for price said £54.93
Any update on price?
Just reserved one to collect but it was at £54.93.. Hoping I'll get them to double check the clearance price 🙏
Looks space age too.
Hotpoint deduct 10% at checkout (once in your basket) and then the ebay 10% voucher code :)
Has the price gone up or am I missing something?
If it helps, their phone number is: 0344 822 4224
ah ok. Will look further into their installation service. Thanks for the reply
Sorry Gibbles should have made it clearer, installations not included in that price (they do offer it as a service when they arrange delivery but I’ve already got an electrician fitting a new kitchen so didn’t ask about it). I assume you’d have to remove the old unless they were installing
firstname.lastname@example.org - give me strength. They have a domain but don't use it for business grade email (annoyed) Heat btw!
1000 clubcard points is only worth £10-£30 Might be better looking elsewhere if better
£300 refurbished at Coop Ebay site £580 at Currys and nearest model AEG L6FBI841N at JL is £430 £105 extra for 5 years warranty makes it £450 inc delivery for 5 years at £90 per year. Defo would have bought this had I not purchased a 8 kg 1200 RPM Beko from the Coop Ebay at £160 with just one year warranty.
That AEG washing machine is a damn good buy (y)
according to hotpoint site this is only 700w not the 750w co-op site claims so it might be a bit lightweight
£46.38 @ Hotpoint Clearance, free delivery. 2% Quidco. 2.02% TCB
Bekos are great. Most of my appliances are bekos dishwasher fridge washing machine dryer
Yes that's true
yes but make sure its both parts and labour
The guarantee would cover with any problems thoghe?
Just don't buy hotpoint indesit or whirlpool the company is setup to make money from doing repairs or charging for guarantees sry op
I cant comment on the microwave but that coffee machine is a steal at that price. Note: this is coffee maker gets great reviews and is the best that Which? has reviewed.
The title is misleading as there is no delonghi microwave on their website
Can't find the microwave. Do you have a link?
Seems like so-so prices to me (skeptical)
