Went for a brand name thinking it was a safe bet, how wrong we were, will never buy another Hoover product ever again and have warned friends and family not to buy anything made by Hoover. The Machine was ok for about the first two weeks, then problem after problem which were fixed as luckily we purchased an extended warranty. The filter clogs up and has to be cleaned every 3 weeks, which is quite a messy job, the noise the spin cycle makes is like if we were drying a load of bricks and the… Read Full Review

Our Hoover Nexta 8 washing machine is approximately 2 years old and has never functioned well. One of the paddles on the drum fell off, fortunately within warranty. After we got past the obligatory "well that's never happened before" and "have you been washing trainers in it" questions the Hoover engineer reluctantly turned up and repaired it. Virtually from new the machine has often decided to mark some whites with a thick black streak so we have to run the machine empty at peak temperature… Read Full Review

Argggggggg!! This machine drives me insane, it does not do what you want it to do half the time, just goes on any old cycle it wants, sometimes after using the dryer it will then fill up with water and wash the clothes again and then the dryer will no go back on, it just re-washes, had an engineer out 3 times to this machine, Dont get one!… Read Full Review

The experience we had is similar to other Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF7148 owners. Now, just a month out of its retailer's warranty it has stopped working altogether: starts a wash but then stops within a few minutes. Given that we've had the service engineer out to look at the machine several times in the last twelve months, we don't feel inclined to pay (now we're out of warranty)for the engineer to come again. It feels like a hopeless case. In the past yeat the filter has clogged up weekly, the wash… Read Full Review

We bought our Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF 7148 with some deliberation but decided that the size and energy efficiency spoke for itself, but the extra effort in getting the clothes ironed flat after a normal wash cycle made up for it.
Like many others we have had trouble from the start with the filter blocking... this would be ok if you could get the machine emptied with ease but every three weeks to unclog the machine is a bit excessive.
We too had to have the engineer out as the machine "had a mind… Read Full Review

Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF7148 is Quite simply dreadful. it's unreliable and when it does work the wash quality is poor compared to previous washing machines. Spend your money on something else!… Read Full Review

The Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF7148 is a truly useless and frustratring piece of equipment.
Unreliable, has a 'mind' of its own, dryer awful, leaks all over the floor. A complete waste of money. I've spent £200 over the last year on labour costs to have it repaired twice. Clothes come out creased to hell after a drying cycle that takes all night. This machine simply cannot work out if it's supposed to be either washing or drying (badly). I've had one of these for 18 months now and on month 13 it… Read Full Review

My experience with this Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF7148 has been poor - it breaks down often and when it is working you can never be sure that they cycle you ask for is what you will get!… Read Full Review

My Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF7148 stopped working as the filter clogged and smoke was coming out of the drum. Good customer service so far i am expecting an engineer to come out in 5 days time. About the machine: You have to ensure that drying is not selected at the beginning of the cycle or you will dry washing automatically… Read Full Review

Compared to previous washer dryers, this Hoover Nextra 8 HNWF7148 is not very good at cleaning and is terrible at drying and sometimes has a mind of it's own (ie. the selected program isn't always what you get!)
Expect some very long program times for both washing and drying, I get that anyway. Do not, like me, buy based on large capacity and quoted functions, in reality it has turned out to be not very good!… Read Full Review
