Disadvantages: Only lasted 1 year after being repaired 6 times to get it through the year
Just over 1 year ago I bought a hotpoint aquarius washing machine. We needed a new machine as the one we had was beginning to break down due to the regular use. We have three babies in the house and naturally the washing machine was in regular use.
We got this new aquarius machine and after a couple of months problems started appearing which necesitated calling for the repair man. During the year we had the repair man out now fewer than six times.
At the end of the year we were told that the washing machine was 'burnt out' and hotpoint gave us a full refund and told us not to buy another one because of the amount of use it was getting they would not guarantee that the next one would last any longer.
Clearly if you are in a household with a requirement for very regular use of the machine I would not advise a Hotpoint aquarius.
