This washing machine is great at cleaning clothes. The 40°C cottons wash does an outstanding job of getting clothes clean, so even the majority of tough stains should be removed. And the spin does a good job of removing water from your laundry.

This Hotpoint does a good job of cleaning your clothes on both the 40°C cotton and synthetic cycles. This doesn't mean that it always gets rid of the most stubborn stains, but you can expect a good all-round clean from this machine.

Independent washing machine tests 

We test how well each washing machine copes with tough stains, such as blood, chocolate, coffee, grass and red wine. We also carry out 50 separate ease-of-use assessments so that when you get your washing machine home, you can be confident it will be really easy to use.

That's because we don't think anyone should waste money on a washing machine that is anything less than excellent at washing and rinsing clothes. 

Every washing machine that we test – including Hotpoint models – get tested for a month at the Which? test lab

Hotpoint washing machine reviews you can rely on 

Most Hotpoint washing machines will cost you between £200 and £500, making the brand among the most affordable on the market.

Every Hotpoint washing machine we review spends at least a month being tested in our Which? lab – that's our Which? difference. Only then do we have enough information to bring you our independent washing machine reviews.  

But we don’t stop there. For a washing machine to be awarded Best Buy status, it not only has to be one of the highest scoring in our tests, it has to come from a reliable washing machine brand, too. We survey thousands of washing machine owners each year to find out about the niggles and problems that their machines have caused them. 

Brands with a poor reliability record can only be awarded a Best Buy when their machines do well enough in our tests and they provide a free five-year parts and labour guarantee. 

You can see for yourself how the major brands score on reliability in our guide to the best washing machine brands.
