Never really let me down apart from the poor door design.
The handle when pulled moves the metal bar inside the washer to release the door. the link is a flimsy piece of plastic inside the door, which mine has broken twice
To replace it if the door is closed, you have to cut around the door panel by the handle and jam a screwdriver in the correct place to open the door. The screws are inside part the door to take it apart. Cost about £45 for another piece of flimzy plastic and a new door skin.
ive sold mine and replaced it with an LG washer dryer, its fantastic. I have 3 more items by hotpoint. As soon as they give me any grief, im binning them. Hotpoint a trusted product? I dont think so!
