“Worst buy ever”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by Leonnave (1 review written)

I agree with other reviews regarding the dancing washing machine - purchased May 2012 and have had engineers out twice - they replaced bits and bobs and it worked well again. Today I thought it was going to explode - I was actually quite frightened - the drum mid spin fell to the floor with concrete and bolts ! I took extended warranty and will contact help desk - I just thought I would google reviews before call and this has proven useful. I certainly will not buy Hoover washing machine… Read Full Review

Hi Julissa1965, we have had exactly the same experience. Had our machine for 2 years and the concrete weight smashed the waste pipe and dented the side of the machine. We now have £2500 of damaged timber flooring due to the waste pipe being cracked. Reply if you need more details.

same thing has happened with our machine - had the machine 2 years and the concrete block has broken. I have two children and need a washing machine but currys say they won't respond for 3-5 days because its out of guarantee.

“Hoover optima WMH 168D a Very poor machine”

Written on: 15/12/2013 by epickett100 (1 review written)

This is a joke, Has anyone had any joy with Hoover taking the machine back as a defective product or indeed currys. I have put up with my machine for 18months. I cannot take it any more. All the comment you mention are true, banging, walking bashing I dare not wash more than 1kg at a time! If just taken the top off and found the concrete weight to be fractured/cracked. This is really dangerous. The block a So has many wounds where it has whacked the top (say every wash) The springs are… Read Full Review

“Hoover NO NO NO!”

Written on: 02/12/2013 by yeldarb (1 review written)

Total RUBBISH!It knocks, it bangs, it moves. Mine has something striking the casing inside with such force it must be causing untold damage.All this and neither CURRYS NOR HOOVER are remotely interested. It is blatently obvious the machine has a design fault and as such is NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE and should never have reached the retail market. SHAME ON YOU Both Currys and Hoover. We the gullible public have been MUGGED… Read Full Review

“Don't Purchase this Washing Machine”

Written on: 03/11/2013

I purchased a Hoover WHM 168D-80 less than 18 months ago. The heavy front balance weight has now dropped and disintegrated denting the front of the machine in several places. Lots of noise and vibration. Hoover will not replace it and want to charge £119 for an engineer to look at it! They will not accept that it is poorly designed. I purchased it to replace e a BEKO and spent significantly more for waht I hoped was a more reliable machine - what a mistake that was. Rubbish machine and… Read Full Review

“Great machine for taking a walk around your kitchen”

Written on: 16/10/2013

I confess to limited washing machine purchase experience: only 40 years and 4 machines. Most have therefore lasted over 10 years and been truly wonderful. I then had the misfortune to purchase a Hoover WMH 168D - it will be the first and last product I ever purchase of that brand. Maybe WMH stands for Washing Machine from Hell? Remarkably, I still have it after about two years even though it is the most hopeless washing machine I have ever experienced and it now sports a dent in the front where… Read Full Review

“hoover never again”

Written on: 18/09/2013

Would give no stars or minus if possible. Never had so much trouble with an appliance which is less than 18mths old and on its 4 engineer visit. Can't spin a small load of handwashing as balance over rides. Sometimes balance of machine is disturbed by the washing in machine. Told can't get a replacement on warranty as it has to be 4 machine problems not resulting from washing movement. … Read Full Review

“hoover optima wash system wmh 168d”

Written on: 13/09/2013

I bought this machine in April 2012, because off the size off the drum. 2 months after having it the belt kept coming off. It made a banging noise when it spun and danced around the floor. 15 months later the concrete has gone on it and has dented the side panels off the machine. It has got to be one off the worst machines I have ever bought. I'm currently trying to contact hoover because this is by the reviews I have read a fault with the machine… Read Full Review

“Dancing and Noisy since new”

Written on: 01/08/2013

Bought this machine 15 months ago and since day one it has clattered and danced its way around two kitchens. At first we thought it was just our old wooden floorboards, and lived with it... but now, in a new house with solid floors the problem remains. The machine has also started making a strange noise like a belt buckle is inside the drum. Got it cheap at the time (£269) and I reckon I will have more trouble trying to get Hoover or the retailer to look at it than I will just buying a new… Read Full Review

“not hoovers best”

Written on: 14/03/2013

Having read the reviews here we did have similar problems with machine banging and moving around the kitchen. However when I rang hoover/candy within warranty they sent an engineer to do a software upgrade to our machine this has fixed all spin problems no banging no dancing around kitchen etc. The engineer explained that the size of drum is very tight inside the cabinet and the early models had a step up spin the upgrade alters this to a smoother transition to top spin speed it worked.

We have been experiencing exactly the same problems with our WMH 168D and I was very pleased to read that it can be sorted out with a software upgrade. Unfortunately my machine is 15 months old so I will telephone Hoover tomorrow!

“Our washing machine comes alive”

Written on: 08/03/2013 by JulietCurtis (1 review written)

It's only one step up from taking your clothes to the local river and rubbing them against a rock . The drum bangs and crashes against the sides of the machine from start to finish ...... Which is unfortunate and obviously extremely tedious as the cycles are so, so long . Imagine having a studio apartment or a flat ....... It just wouldn't be possible . We do try and put the machine on when we go to work so we don't have to tolerate the noise pollution . When we return home no doubt about it… Read Full Review

“worst washing machine ever”

Written on: 24/02/2013

I've now had mine nearly two years and no end of trouble, it stops mid cycle and goes onto "cold wash" or doesnt drain properly, even with the filter cleaned and replaced, it is very temperamental and doesnt seem to like a full load. The only way i can currently get it to function is if I put it on a drain cycle at least once after every wash and then no guarantees. Such a dissapointment and an absolute waste of money. I would honestly say the worst electrical item I have ever bought. Oh and… Read Full Review

I brought the 7lb Hoover washing machine in Silver.. just dreadful, this machine is so flimsy and does not wash clean. I've been washing clothes for over 40 years, with no problem so I know it's nothing to do with me over loading or using too much soap/conditioner. This machine has a mind of its own, cutting down washing time and then turning out clothes still dirty, even on a 95 programme!
6 times out of ten I have to wash them again.
Be careful using the full 1200 spin, it will pulp your clothes. I've had this machine for 2 months. Waste of money. Think Hoover should stick to making Hoovers.

I only wish I had read the other reviews before I bought my hover washing machine . An optima wmh168d. It is the noisiest machine I have ever had . It is so noisy it wakes me up if I run it during the night. It makes strange banging noises which the engineer said was caused by the. Machine arranging the load.

Hoover WMH168D Washing Machine

The Hoover WMH168D washing machine has a generous 8kg capacity and has the capability of expertly handling of even the largest loads, giving one a light laundry day. This machine has fast spin speeds of 1600 r.p.m that basically means that you don’t need to wait for a long time to have your clothes dry, which many Reevoo consumers loved. The Hoover WMH168D washing machine contains a wide range of modes that can cater for different types of laundry including materials such as silks, sports and other delicates, and still giving an insurance of higher level for all garments.

At Idealo, some clients said that they had satisfaction after using the machine for two months with one pointing out that they had a large family of four children, hence they needed something with a large capacity and that is the reason they went for the Hoover WMH168D washing machine. They added that the machine was efficient and quite even though they did have an issue with the spin taking a while to get started.

Many customers at Reevoo were happy with the good choice of programmes on Hoover WMH168D washing machine, with the inclusion of the smaller wash, and on top of that plenty of spin speeds. Some customers said that they were impressed with the machines quietness. Some said that the drum was big but it couldn’t go back so far that one had to get on their knees to check if it was empty. Customers at Comet gave the Hoover WMH168D washing machine a high rating on quietness, features, ease of use and its washing ability, with many saying that the machine was superb and good value for money.
