Hotpoint WMFUG742P review
|Review: July 2014|
Last updated November 2015
In a nutshell: The Hotpoint WMFUG742P is a relatively compact 7kg capacity washer with a moderate spin speed of 1400rpm and an A++ efficiency rating. It uses Hotpoint's new Smart Technology, which enables it to sense load size and manage water levels and wash intensity to optimise efficiency. It's a fairly-priced family washing machine, but noisier than its 8kg capacity counterpart, the WMFUG842P.

Stop worrying how sock get in during wash in drain machine is less than year old.
How do you work the smart button to choose wash Intensity, when smart button pushed all 3 lights flash and go off, same with easy iron button. What am I doing wrong ?

This washing machine is especially suitable for people with skin issues and allergies as it rinses thoroughly .
Has a baby wash too.
Hotpoint know their business unlike LG that does not rinse although they advertise medic washes skin care ETC just hopeless.

Had the machine 12 months and it has now broken down 3 times with the same problem, faulty pressure switch which stops the water supply. Would certainly not recommend.

Rubbish machine has broken down twice in 11 months - first time after just 6 weeks. Same problem and the engineers come and then can't get parts been without a machine for nearly 4 weeks. I would steer well clear and buy a more reliable brand with better after care and service. Their service centre is not helpful and just want to sell you aftercare tablets and extended warranties to earn more monies.

Faulty spin cycle. Repair man came out and said door wasn't shut properly. Guess this is the excuse they use because this keeps happening.
