“Mines worked very well considering other reviews ”

Written on: 21/02/2016 by NinaHarrison312 (1 review written)

I've had this washer dryer for about 2 years and the only thing that's broken is the dryer function. It just doesn't heat up for the dryer function to work. Besides that all has worked as well as expected. Mine is quiet compared to machines that I've had before. I can only hear it when in the same room or if my house is completely silent and then I only hear the spin cycle. The only issue I have with the drawer, is that occasionally the fabric softener compartment will remain filled with water… Read Full Review

“Seems we were lucky with this eccentric machine”

Written on: 20/04/2015 by ascotrobin (1 review written)

Bought from Comet auction site a few years back and machine was used about every 3 weeks or so. Apart from having to clear fluff from filter a couple of times it worked adequately for about 5 years. However, time seemed elastic to it, display showed remaining time as 2 minutes for 15 minutes at times or remaining time suddenly increased during cycle. The drying function was often less effective than hanging things over the bath in Winter (perhaps Hotpoint can explain why a drying function… Read Full Review

“TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE GARBAGE!”

Written on: 19/11/2013 by spannerman88 (1 review written)

This machine is the worst washing machine EVER to be brought on the market! noisier than a boeing 747, you could dry your clothes quicker if you put them out in a storm and would end up with same result after three hours...soaking wet clothes! all in all it's about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike! only buy if you have an amazing sense of humour....and a deathwish… Read Full Review

“How is this possible!?!”

Written on: 16/02/2013

Firstly, this washing machine is not silent, it sounds like a monster truck is powering through my kitchen. Secondly, it it impossible to get it to do what you want, for example you can't get it to do just a dry or just a spin. It does indicate this is possible in the instructions but when you follow them to make it do a drying program, the first thing it does it the full on monster truck spin cycle, for what seems like an eternity. Thirdly, the spin....seriously...how long does a washing… Read Full Review

“Lucky it lasted so long”

Written on: 14/07/2012

I would l like to state that this is the first time I have ever written, or felt compelled to write, a review of any sort. If I'd read this review forum I'd never have bought a Hotpoint WD860 washer/dryer in the first place; having always looked for combined value for money and quality in the past, one should feel safe when purchasing what is seen as a 'Flagship' product. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, I feel lucky my machine has lasted so long, although being a single middle aged man and… Read Full Review

“AVOID”

Written on: 09/05/2012 by Zabby (1 review written)

Have had Hotpoint WD860 since 2007 - from day one we had issues! The "super silent" machine is anything but! Sounds akin to a jumbo jet taking off, or someone shovelling a bag of stones into the drum! Within the first months, we had them out to replace the motherboard. Took out the extended warranty with D & G and have since had them out numerous times (cant remember exactly how often, but since Sept last year, they have been 11 times and I am currently awaiting a senior engineer to visit on… Read Full Review

“Is this a dryer ????”

Written on: 09/11/2011

I have never known a dryer that takes in water before it starts drying. Is it a faulty dryer ? or is it normal for a dryer to take up to 3 hours!! The three choices of settings are all the same/useless. I had a set of towels which were almost dry on the washing line. I put them into the dryer to "finish them off" Set the dryer to cupboard dry. Bingo it started to take in water!!! 30 minutes later the dryer still showed 2 hours to finish. I turned the dryer off and waited. Eventually the door… Read Full Review

“Do not use this machine whilst you are out!”

Written on: 03/11/2011 by caroleproberts (1 review written)

There must be a fault with this design of machine I have had nothing but problems. Mainly the machine pours water out of the soap drawer as the waste gets blocked with fluff (about every 3 months). After the second year the waste pipe just used to come off so the entire contents were pumped out onto the kitchen floor. There is no easy way to clear the fluff accumulated by tumble drying you have to dismantle the machine, I watched the engineer do it so many times I just started doing it myself… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2011

Have read other reviews and have to disagree! I have had a couple of engineer visits one for the dryer not working and one when a couple of the plastic drum inserts came away but easily fixed. The machine isn't as quiet as you expect but in my case only in spin cycle. Start/cancel button is fine you just need to keep your finger on it until it cancels! Am currently looking for new washer/dryer for new kitchen and would choose Hotpoint again, quite happy all things considered!… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2011

Absolute rubbish! Bought the machine 3 years ago as it was supposed to be brilliant. It broke down within a month and at least once every two months goes wrong. Spends more time being repaired or out of action than working. At one stage my clothes were stuck in the machine for days before we could get someone out and on another occasion the water was filled with black bits where the heating element burnt out. My daughter's work clothes for the next day were in it but they couldn't get someone… Read Full Review

“Hotpoint WD860 WASHER/DRYER ”

Written on: 03/11/2010

Hotpoint WD860 WASHER/DRYER
The worst peice of equipment, not just appliance, I have ever bought.
It it now where it belongs, ON THE TIP at Stockton Heath Warrington.
There must be an inherent design fault with this machine,I have had 3 machines, 12 Engineers Visits, 4 main control boards, 2 Display Boards, 1 Motor and I can remember how many thermal cut-outs.
This machine has nearly caught fire,apart from the dog barking in the night and me shutting the machine off, I do not know what may… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/06/2011

I totally agree, badly designed or cost reduction approach to the system, leaving it flawed. Had our machine for ~ 4 years , needed a repair with the first 6 months. Had a couple of new thermostats and suffers from leaks on the heating system getting clogged with fluff. It does need a thorough good clean every few months, all door seals, heating system and drain sump, otherwise it leaks or the fluff catches fire and normally results in a new thermostat. Our does get used at least once every day, but I would hope other makes/models are better? I do all the work myself now - will keep it going until it dies.....

Written on: 25/10/2010

My partner had her wd860 several years ago. It broke down within 7 months of having it. f13 seems to be a common error. Her WD860 has had the motor pack up. Thermostat packing up.The noce blue display pack up. Fortunately she had it insured so its been fixed over and over again. I would say dont buy it. For the past few months its has been ok but that will not change either of our views on it. avoid… Read Full Review

“Do not buy this machine! ”

Written on: 26/05/2010

Do not buy this machine!
I had three replacement machines before it was out of warranty.... I stopped using the tumble dryer but even then the heating element burnt itself out and to be honest scared the life out of me when i opened the door to a horrific smell and bits of metal in my washing load.

I originally went for this machine because it looked stylish, but it was totally unreliable in both the washing and drying modes… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2010

This is the WORST washer dryer I have ever had, since Jan 2010 to date, this breaks down every 2-3weeks and have to call out the engineer and its always the same thing, the dryer goes and a fault comes up F13 and then it wont switch off until you unplug this from the mains. I have 2 young children and am having to go to the launderette in between engineer visits. I am now looking into getting another make and model as i will never again purchase Hotpoint washer/dryer. This one states it a… Read Full Review

“Hotpoint WD860 - DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!! I am now on...”

Written on: 31/01/2010

Hotpoint WD860 - DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!! I am now on my 3rd replacement due to faults that the engineer could not fix - I would happily throw it away if I could get refund but I am caught in the nightmare of the Hotpoint policy which is to replace it if they can't fix it.
MAIN FAULTS
It leaks constantly, won't dry clothes even if you leave it on for 3 hours, it is noisy, regularly blows up (sparks flying, burning smell, house fuses blown)
ANNYOYING FAULTS
Programs are complicated and the… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2010

We eventually replaced this with a reliable bosch. We bought it two years ago and broke down almost to the day our 1 year warranty ran out. Hotpoint (Indeshit) wanted over hundred quid to come out with no guarantee of repair. They must think we are naive. I suppose we are for buying a supposedly reliable make.
We have had our local repair man (who used to work for Hotpoint, when they were hotpoint and he told us Hotpoint are now owned by Indeshit and are very poor quality. We have had it… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2009

hi after reading the other reviews it is quite comforting that it is not just me..... well the drawer leaks. Every time I dry or wash I have to pull my machine into the middle of the room, put a towel and a black plastic bag under the corner to stop it weaking over the floor. Engineers have been very nice... but am getting a bit fed up now on having to book the engineer ever two weeks. I have tried everything, turned the water pressure down, put calgon in very wash but it still leaks… Read Full Review
