“Bucking the trend”

Written on: 28/05/2014 by Adalynnu443 (1 review written)

Well I've had this machine now several years and have nothing but praise for it, it has done what it should without fault or problem and NO I DONT work for or have any connection with Hotpoint. In common with any mechanical device they tend to work better when given a little attention from time to time. If it develops a problem (although honestly mine hasn't) it needs to be fixed, ignore it at your peril. Would you run your car for years on end with no attention, well yes admittedly some… Read Full Review

“Misleading Marketing - Rubbish Machine ”

Written on: 22/04/2013 by BluntLuke (2 reviews written)

I brought the Hotpoint WF541 a few years ago after my 15 year old 2nd hand Zanussi retired. I thought the machine was a decent brand, good spec, simple to use and looked o.k. However, it's never been as good as the old machine. And then there was the lights! About five and a half years after owning it, all the lights started flashing on the front of the panel. I looked in the manual - a few different things mentioned about certain lights flashing to indicate problems, but nothing about all of… Read Full Review

A small electrical component had burnt out, that's probably worth less than a pound... I decided to by an LG in the end - they're Korean and probably much better than anything made in the UK. I only found the part that had burnt out though, when I took the machine apart to remove the stainless steel drum, so that I could use the drum as a log burner on the patio. And my advice is that you do the same - because after further investigation I'm informed by others that have had the same problem; you'll likely need to have the washing machine re-programmed anyway by an engineer once you start messing with the circuit board. Hotpoint and Indesit = absolute junk.

“Worst machine ever and rudest staff me members!!”

Written on: 13/04/2013

I bought my machine 6years ago with a 5yrs guarantee and I've had it fixed twice.. Now my warranty has expired and that same problem has happened again.. Where do I stand?!! Get new machine!

“Rust”

Written on: 25/03/2013

Similar to other reviews, the front housing is also rusting on our machine. We've also just been told that the door latch needs replacing and also some internal "mother-board" or similar. Have had unit for 5yrs, but the rust has been apparent for at least half of that time. Not what you'd expect from a washing machine. You'd think that they would be built for a certain amount of contact with water… Read Full Review

“Front housing rusting”

Written on: 23/02/2013 by saltashscouse (2 reviews written)

We bought a silver Hotpoint Aquarius a little over 2 years ago and it has rust spots all over the front housing above the door. This looks awful and not what you would expect from a reputable company like Hotpoint. Although it is only cosmetic and does not stop the machine from functioning normally it is very unsightly. As the machine is out of warranty Hotpoint are unwilling to investigate… Read Full Review

“Glass Door Exploded ”

Written on: 07/01/2013 by Mapin (1 review written)

Bought this washing machine three months ago . Been using this machine daily with no problems until last week. The machine had washed the bedding and was spinning when there was a terrific bang. The glass door had smashed into the machine. The engineer said I must of had something in the machine - yes sheets how was that my fault. Has any one else has this happen????… Read Full Review

“A bad buy”

Written on: 29/12/2012 by Mrsangry2 (1 review written)

I have had this machine for just over 4 years and the bearings have gone which means it can't be repaired as we would have to buy a new drum. I had a Hotpoint machine previously which lasted over 10 years and thought it a good make. But how wrong I was. There is awful mould on the rubber round the drum and also I have noticed a bad smell like other reviewers. I still feel this is a new machine and am very angry to be forking out more money just after Christmas. Shame it says 'made in Great… Read Full Review

“Wheres the water?”

Written on: 09/10/2012

I hate this machine! It leaves my clothes dirty, unrinsed and sometimes with dry patches. Its all very well being ECO friendly but it lets minimal water into the drum so how can it clean my clothes? Utterly useless, I am now searching for a machine that will actually wash my clothes… Read Full Review

Same here, hate this machine if I put a kilo of clothes I may if I'm lucky get fresh ones out. Absolute garbage, less than 18months old and I can't even give it away as I wouldn't wish it on any one.

“Mouldy & smelly”

Written on: 17/06/2012 by julietmarie (1 review written)

Smells like a sewer when washing & laundry never smells fresh. Door seal is covered in mould & gunk no matter what I do & retains water. Although the door is left open when not in use because it is still coming into contact with the seal it might as well be kept closed! (Have checked other brands & this does not happen) Judging by other reviews this is a common problem that has been going on for some time - come on Hotpoint - sort it out! Front cover(silver finish) is also going rusty… Read Full Review

“wfh41g TERRIBLE MACHINE STAY AWAY!!!!”

Written on: 21/11/2011 by suzytuffs1 (1 review written)

Exactly the same as many other users have posted on here. I had to have the drum replaced 6 months ago. Then got the problem with the flashing lights, ive had to have 2 engineers out within a week, had the circuit board and motor replaced(which failed within 24 hours). Will definately not touch HOTPOINT again, and would advise everyone possible to stay well away from this machine!!!… Read Full Review

“Having only bought hotpoint appliances for the last 30...”

Written on: 23/04/2011

Having only bought hotpoint appliances for the last 30 years, I am bitterly disappointed with this washing machine. The front panel started to rust within a year - Hotpoint said it was cosmetic and would do nothing about it. The rubber round the door is covered in mould which won't come off. There is a continuous build up of mould inside the soap drawer, regardless of how often I clean it. It does not wash properly. I can't wait to get rid of it. I won't be buying anything from hotpoint… Read Full Review

“In common with other posters, same kind of experience...”

Written on: 22/04/2011

In common with other posters, same kind of experience - power board gone, with lights flashing and impossible to turn on the machine. Mould building up in the machine and smells of mildew, despite regular use. I have just been quoted '180 (I'm in Ireland) for a replacement power board and programming card, PLUS labour and callout charges. Needless to say, it's been poor value for money and I am going to dump this machine and buy a new (NOT a Hotpoint!) machine rather than throw good money… Read Full Review

“Thank God I`m not alone! I bought this rubbish just...”

Written on: 19/02/2011 by MartyHam (1 review written)

Thank God I`m not alone! I bought this rubbish just over 2 years ago thinking if I pay a bit more for a so called good brand it would last me. What a joke! Apart from the fact that it didn`t wash properly and the clothes stank after a wash it has now broken down and due to the crafty manufacture of this appliance is now irrepairable unless I pay £200+. This is due to the drum being encased in a plastic mould that cannot be replaced. I`ll never buy a hotpoint again and definitely will not… Read Full Review
