I have three hotpoint products, washer dryer and fridge freezer over £1100 worth, they are all rusty and they are all three yrs old, I'm disgusted at how awful these item look considering how much money was spent on them, my last washer and dryer lasted me 10yrs..I bought hotpoint thinking they would be just as good, how wrong I was, I'm now getting on to hotpoint as the rust is so bad on the door seal it was leaking this morning, and flooded my kitchen, ..I can't afford to replace an item...

Have the Indesit 1400 - also have mould on clothes and in drum and drawer. I am constantly cleaning it. Thought it was just me. I have also noticed alot of our clothes are getting small holes in them - as though they are catching on something. The electric screen keeps flickering which gets sorted if you tap it but today the door wouldnt open after the cycle finished. Indesit wont come out for a week despite me having cover. Im on my third phone call to them. I have wet clothes inside which... (read more)

Less than 2 years old Foul smelling, mouldy seals from month one, even after wiping seal dry every wash. Have replaced complete seal over 3 times in under 2 years. Its the loudest washing machine we have ever heard and vibrates itself all around the kitchen.

The 5 year manufacture guarantee on parts is only valid if you pay Indesit £140 to come out and undo... (read more)

Yes the seal does go a bit mouldy but so has every other washing machine I've owned. It doesn't come off on the clothes, they come out smelling and looking clean and fresh. I use liquitabs in mine. I like the look of it, its A rating and the fact that there are only 4 wash programs. It's so simple to use. (read more)

I've owned my Indesit Moon for 4+ years and it's fabulous so I'm the 2nd person to love my moon! I generally use the 30 degree wash as it gets everything clean (although I pre-soak really dirty whites, mud and blood), only takes about 30 minutes and is sooo quiet. The rubber door liner has gone black and mouldy but it doesn't come off on the clothes on the 30 degree wash and isn't smelly. The removable door dispenser takes powder, liquid and conditioner and other types can be put directly... (read more)

I bought my moon over 3 years ago, it was a bargain at the time only £169, and have never had a problem with it. The rubber seal can get a bit dirty but once cleaned doesnt smell bad or affect my washing in anyway. Ive used lots of different washing products (usually ones on offer) and have always had lovely smelling clean clothes. I find that the different cycles are enough for my use, the 60 wash may be a tad long. The washing machine looks great and is easy to use. The main reasons I... (read more)

Rubbish. Rip off. Dead duck. White elephant. (Mouldy rusting elephant) Doesn't wash properly. Clothes smell musty and come out covered in mould.

This is the worst washing machine I have ever owned - I hate it so much and wish I'd never bought it. The only good thing about it is that it looks nice but every other thing about it is rubbish.

My washing has been smelling really bad for months, bleached the black mould on the door seal, took the door off and bleached everything there but still the smell was soooo bad. I am insured for my appliances with British Gas, they came and changed the door seal and gave me some OUST cleaner.

Where to start.....Mould on all the rubber surfaces, and in the soap dispenser. It's impossible to clean, so each wash features the mould coming off the seal on to the clothes during the cycle and onto the washed clothes when they are removed from the machine.
The functions are pretty useless too, no hot wash, and the fast spin is only available on the 60 degree wash cycle. The 30 degree wash cycles are totally unfathomable to work.
We have tried various cleaning products to remove the... (read more)
