I bought this washing machine for my new kitchen and it is just what I was looking for. I have recently redone the kitchen and was looking for something stylish and functional that went with my design. I like stainless steel appliances but they are a little pricey, so it had to be black. After some research the hotpoint stood out in its price range as it looks great, had a good spec and is a decent brand.
Up to spec?
This machine has a large load capacity (9 kilos) and this definitely comes in handy with my 8 week old baby's ability to dirty half a dozen outfits in one day.
One advantage that attracted me to the hotpoint is its claims of quietness. The wash cycle is certainly very quiet although on spin it is understandably rather louder. It is still much less noisy than my old machine and vibrates a lot less.
The machine has fully customizable wash options and the menu and icons are straightforward and easy to use.
So far it has been reliable with no problems. Although I have only had it a couple of months the baby means it has had to withstand a lot of use.
Price and value
I paid around 400 pounds for the washing machine from argos and was pleased as the price included delivery, installation and the removal of my old machine, which was very convenient.
