I love my top loading washing machine. It has many features that save money like the 'quick wash' and quick spin' facility plus I can change the temperature of the wash load so easily by just turning a dial.
It also lasts for years my previou hotpoint top loader lasted 16 years before being beyond repair and with a family of four kids that is a huge achievement for a washing machine!
The lid of this machine has a detachable powder/liquid container, three of them for pre wash, wash, and conditioner. The fact its detachable means it can washed easily from all that gunk that tends to build up.
This particular top loader has a drum which turns around the same as a front loader, one section has opening doors on the drum which then click back together to close.
It has a filter at ground level which needs cleaning once in a blue moon to ensure those little things that get into our washing does not block any pipes.
I also like the maintenance insurance cover via Hotpoint. I have the extended warranty which means all repairs are free and if they cannot repair it they will give you a new washing machine.
And this is actually true as when my last top loader from Hotpoint could not be repaired anymore after 16 years I got this brand new one !!!
The only down side has been a little rust to the lid which when I reported it Hotpoint replaced at no cost.
I highly recommend this washing machine and Hotpoint's extended warranty.
