I recently purchased the Hotpoint WDF740P Washer Dryer and have not been disappointed.
I went for this machine for the larger capacity (7kg for washing; 5kg for drying) and the spin speed (1400rpm).
The digital display shows how much time is left of the programme, which I have found especially helpful.
The child lock is a really useful function.
There are a good number of programmes. The baby wash is particularly useful, we use reusable nappies and they have come out so clean, even obliterating a damp smell that had been lingering. I have used this particular programme on baby clothes and whites too - it appears to have loosened even the most ground in dirt - my previously slightly greying whites have come out so bright and my son's school shirts have come out sparkling! All on a 40 degree wash.
The fast wash is really useful. This lasts 43 minutes at 40 degrees.
I have tried the quick wash and dry cycle once and found that the items came out a little crisp so would perhaps not use this again. I do prefer to do an extra spin before drying if the selected cycle has not reached 1400rpm so I prefer for cycles not to automatically dry.
I was initially a little disconcerted by the time taken for drying. By default, the digital display suggests that this will take 3 hours which seems an extraordinarily long time. I have however, discovered that this adjusts itself towards the end of the cycle so the drying sensor works well. In addition, it is possible to set the machine to dry for a specific time period should this be the preference of the user.
The machine beeps when it has finished and on the baby cycle the door remains locked until the start button is pressed - a useful safety feature. The drum also turns periodically once finished to prevent creasing and items come out lovely and soft.
