On Tuesday I collected this beauty. Story goes that it was brought by a chap with some redundancy money, and never used/needed. 21 years later (So it falls into this forum!), a house clearance place cleared the gentleman's house and sold it on, and i ended up with it. Machine is brand new, plug still cable tied to the back and transit bar in place, and complete with sealed instructions and a sample One Wash pack of Persil Finesse! Im in 2 minds about it, keep it new or run just one wash in it, think im gonna keep it new but they all say that! Unfortunaltey the box and lower polystyrene packaging got damaged moving it but the machine is still unmarked and intact.

I believe this is the only WM32 on the internet, as I cant find an image of one on any archive eBay threads etc, and the Hotpoint site has the wrong manual for my machine. Score!

Pictures to follow. Do comment! :D

That's cool.  I'd be dreading opening the box myself though and wanting to keep it NIB  lol . But for what, I'd open it as well. And use it at least once, hell why give that pleasure to some one else. We're only here for a short while.   Or don't use it until there's a meet somewhere and let everyone enjoy it's first go.

Final one

Full front, lid off showing the transit bracket in place. This must be the last Hotpoint WM to use a pull on push off timer and dial. Date codes to Sept 1995, production started in April 1995 according to the Service manual for it.
