“Hotpoint WMD960 Polar White.”

published 07/01/2009

ProDigital Display, Customisable, Memory, Delay Start

ContraWash times longer than stated, smaller porthole.

I recently purchased this washing machine as a replacement for an older, tired Whirlpool Washer/Dryer. My previous machine was a 1000rpm speed and was deafeningly loud. Although I was initially dubious by the claims of the machines "super silent" features, I was very impressed by the performance...

“Hotpoint WMD960P Polar White”

published 15/03/2010

ProEasy to use, varied programs, super quiet

ContraCountdown timer occasionally gets lost

Having been unhappy with our last washing machine, an LG, we opted for a family favourite in Hotpoint, and we were not disappointed. The Hotpoint WMD960 washing machine comes in white as WMD960P or “graphite” under model number WMD960G. It is a Hotpoint Ultima, 1600 spin washing machine, with a...

ContraExpensive

I have had the Hotpoint WMD960P Washing Machine for about a year and, bearing in mind I probably go through about five loads of washing a day (I have a large and dirty family!!), it has certainly been put through its paces. I bought it off of an electrical company on Ebay for £459.00, which is...

ProQuiet, economical, useful wash cycles.

ContraNone so far.

This is a great washing machine, very quiet. I chose the 8kg size because I hate to waste water, soap powder and electricity on a small wash, when you can wash a much bigger pile of clothes using the same amounts. I wanted to see what 8kg of washing looked like, and I discovered that 8kg of...

ProHalf load facility, Delay Timer

ContraNo handwash setting

On the whole a very easy to use machine, especially regarding program selection, and it also comes with a clear digital display. The machine remembers your last wash setting, so it is easy to start the next one. It gives a beep when the cycle has finished, although it does not switch off (i.e...

Very impressed with this machine. Excellent for families. Has a huge drum, plenty of choice of programmes that you can adjust to your own requirements and save in the memory. Variable spin up to 1600 which really dries your clothes. Child lock (essential) to stop them from changing your cycle while in use. Digital timer showing how long left, half load and Eco option. Can't find anything negative to say about it. Would highly recommend. Purchased from Appliances online. Best price and paid £9.99 to have delivered next day. Excellent service!!

Very good for the first three months, then it stopped working. Repaired under guarantee - Entire 'brain' and pump replaced. Now two weeks later F18 errors even with a light load. I am not impressed. I can not exchange, and have to live with it. F18 is 'unbalanced load' and is aparently my fault for loading the machine incorrectly. Never had the error before, and now the error occurs with even a few shirts! Looking for a new machine, and will dump this one before the end of the month. F18 halts the program and the washing has to be restarted. F18 occurs every second or third wash. Avoid this machine.

“Hotpoint WMD960P”

published 09/05/2011

ProExcellent for the busy family

ContraNone so far

I have had this particular model of the Hotpoint WMD960P for around 8 months now and can honestly say that I have no complaints at all. I needed a washing machine that could cope with a high capacity and this is certainly true of this model. With a plethora of settings available I have found that...

How they can call this machine super silent I don't know. Users who say it is quite are not using the 1600 spin (granted this is only on offer for the cotton cycle). Although visually the machine looks good with a digital display, the brains seem very old and I am very disappointed as I expected...
