W2880eco: the hot fill washing machine

Hot-fill washing machines have all but disappeared in the UK, making the W2880eco hot fill washing machine a true rarity. Promises behind hot-fill washing machines are meant to be lower running costs and reduced wash times, but are these true?

Manufactured by ISE, the W2880eco has been designed to be used with a ‘pre-heated tanked, solar or other renewable hot water sauce’. If your heating system has this, ISE says its machine can save you 71% on the washing machines running costs.

The washing machine can also be used as a regular cold fill washing machine. So we’ve tested it in both it’s hot/cold and just cold fill modes to find out how much of a difference it makes to cleaning, wash duration – and how much it can save you on your bills.

The ISE washing machine is also manufactured to be easily repairable if needed. ISE is so confident the W2880eco hot fill machine will last that it’s given it a free ten year warranty.

Members can find out if this ISE is worth the £1,050 price tag by clicking the link below, but if you’re not a member you can still get instant access to the results by signing up for a £1 trial.
