It's a great looking machine and value for money at just under 300gbp. It only has cold fill so does your bit for the environment. It has all the washes you could want including fast washes and mini loads and it seems to take half as much a load as the previous Hotpoint I had which this model superseeded. The speed is very effective and the washing once spun therefore takes less time to dry.
It has no wheels and was difficult to put into place, it is rounded which is good with kids as no sharp edges but the front seems to fill out more space. Just watch your lino and make sure you have cardboard or hardboard under the machine as my lino ripped getting it into place. Some of the usual washes seem to take a long time but you have the option of the fast washes.
I am really pleased with my Hotpoint WF320, it fits in nicely with my other Hotpoint appliances which you worry about when one thing wears out and your other older appliances are still going. It has buttons now to press which is easier than the old dials but it does make it easier for the kids to play around with it, just have to remember to turn it off at the wall once used. It can get nosy when it does the final spin but on the other hand, I have to sometimes check I have put it on in the beginning as it is so quiet.
