ahhhh, I absolutely loved this washer dryer! sadly I have had to replace it now, I bought a new candy washer dryer and I really wish I had my hotpoint ultima back
this washer dryer is great. it is really easy and simple to use, it holds a very large amount of washing / drying, and has lots of different functions to set it on the perfect wash.
it has an led function, and the most useful thing that I really miss with my new washer dryer is the fact that this hotpoint beeps when it has finished, to let you know, not continuously but enough times to alert you. I found this really handy, as I would just hear the beep, know my washing was done, and get it out straight away rather than leaving wet washing sat in the washing machine.
the only reason that we know longer have this hotpoint washer dryer is because things kept going wrong with it. first it was something to do with the heating element, then the stone on the bottom of it crumbled away. we had a few repairs done to it but the last time it broke it was too costly to repair so it made more sense to just buy a new one.
even though the washer dryer had a number of problems and only lasted a couple of years, I really loved it and I would say it is the best washer dryer I have used, it is just a shame it didn't last very long. having said that, I do use my washers heavily, we are a family of 4 and do 1 sometimes 2 wash loads a day, which could explain why it didn't last very long.
I would still recommend this to others and wish I would have bought another of the same one instead of trying a different brand. it is just so easy to use and has some really good little features.
The Hotpoint WDUD9640 is a freestanding washer drier which comes in the colours black and silver, both of which look great with any style of kitchen decor. It has a 9kg wash load capacity and a 6kg drying load capacity. It's one of the most stylish yet uptodate washer dryer combinations on the market, although almost 3 years old, and I highly recommend it to anyone.
It has a range of new and upcoming technological features - one of which I find very helpful. It's called the Delay Timer and allows you to delay the wash or dry cycles until a time of your choice even if the wash/dry is prepared to begin.
This washer dryer has very impressive statistics and specifications including a wide range of options located on it's exterior to help you select the best wash or dry options for your chosen load. It's freestanding and is fairly quiet and vibration free in comparison to other washer dryers. It's approximately 85cm/2ft9 in height and is easily operated on account of it's small yet powerful size.
It's rated A for energy efficiency, and also A for spin efficiency. It requires little energy to power and on average is estimated to consume 310 Kilowatt hours per year.
The machine does however have some faults as it can take a considerably long time to dry clothes. But for me this is it's only flaw and I would more than definitely recommend it to anyone, as I would definitely purchase it again and I would also purchase from this excellently developed brand again.
