Hotpoint WMD960G: Top notch washing machine for larger families.

AdvantagesLarge drum. 15 wash cycles. Reliable manufacturer. 3 year guarantee.

DisadvantagesExpensive

" 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 actually more than I wanted to pay, but I trust the Hotpoint name and so preferred to go for quality rather than a cheaper option that may need replacing earlier. ..."

Hotpoint WMD960 Polar White.

AdvantagesDigital Display, Customisable, Memory, Delay Start

DisadvantagesWash times longer than stated, smaller porthole.

"...water supply, after calling the Hotpoint Service line I was given very helpful and prompt information - they were also good enough to tell me NOT to call out their engineers for the problem as they felt it may not be the issue I thought and if that was the case they would have to charge me for the callout. I thought this was excellent customer service given that many places would just take your money and say tough luck! Instead they worked with me ..." Read review

Hotpoint WMD960P Polar White

AdvantagesEasy to use, varied programs, super quiet

DisadvantagesCountdown timer occasionally gets lost

"...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 huge 8kg capacity drum and graded with an “AAA” washing and energy efficiency rating. It has a spacious front opening with a left-hinged door and child lock. It boasts 15 wash programs, including wool (Platinum Care Woolmark), silk, bed and bath, fast wash, ..." Read review

Hotpoint WMD960P - Economical, takes huge loads, useful cycles.

AdvantagesQuiet, economical, useful wash cycles.

DisadvantagesNone 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 washing is huge. To weigh your washing, stand on a weighing machine, weigh yourself, then pick up the bundle of clothes to be washed, and see what the difference ..." Read review

Versatile with a child lock option!

AdvantagesHalf load facility, Delay Timer

DisadvantagesNo 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. the display panel is still on). However, it is an exceptionally quiet machine. Regarding wash performance, a 40 degree wash only takes around an hour and ..." Read review

Hotpoint WMD960P

AdvantagesExcellent for the busy family

DisadvantagesNone so far

"...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 I only use about 4 of them. There is a wonderful half load facility, and quick wash facility for those times you need something in a real hurry - I use this ..." Read review

Quick review of Hotpoint WMD960G

"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!!

Quick review of Hotpoint WMD960G

"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.

Very noisy at 1600 spin, cycles take forever!

Advantageswasher and dryer in one.

Disadvantagescycles take forever, will make quite a noise when it operates at 1600 speed spin.

"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 a lot from this appliance. If I could return it I would get a low cost washer and dryer as two separate machines - thats what I have in my second property ..." Read review
