Maybe I could get one of these and put it in the place of the Bosch, and the Bosch where the Creda used to stand.

Oh yeah, my Creda W220VW got stolen.

I can't do much with it until tonight as it didn't come with a tool to remove the bolts and I left my toolbox at my folks. Ontop of that I have the kids so a lot of it will be done when they are in bed! They approve of it lol

On a sidenote you get a very cool dedicated guide on laundry, what detergents and cycles to use and a stain guide.

Oh, I really like the new round door! I never liked the classic Ariston/Hotpoint look! :)

Really stunning!

The beaut is plumbed in and currently running on the autoclean programme which spins at just a little faster than distribution speed in both directions! V fun to watch. And during this time my youngest son has projectile vomited all over me and him and the floor so the first challenge for the ultima is a sticky one! Errrrrrgh!

Dave the motor bearings were making it super noisy and I used that as an excuse to upgrade to a 1600 spin model as I dry in the tumble dryer a lot living in a flat. Couldn't really afford the tol aqualtis.

On a side note I ordered this from appliancesonline and what a fantastic service I have received!!!

Good Luck!

Hi Darren, best of luck with your new, beautiful Hotpoint! Remember not to overload it! The round door looks a lot better than previous models.

The first video is up on my YouTube page.

I'm filming the cotton cycle. They have improved the tumble speed which I'm impressed with. The pump now cycles on and off during the spin. The out of balance is better and I'm very pleased that the rinses are now sensor filled instead of timed fill and it tops up continuously through the rinse is the level drops! I love this machine!

I am glad your pleased with it after all up 3 flights of stairs is not the easiest way to get washers in your flat lol.

You should have considered a ground floor with ramped access :))

Fast wash 30 hasalso changed tumbles instantly while filling only 2 or 3 times then goes straight into long fast tumbles! I love this machine!

good to know fast wash 30 has changed, after looking on the manual on the hotpoint site, I see time saver can be selected on fast wash 30, does that mean it will do the fast 15 minute wash??

I like this washing machine a lot:)

Yeah and on the rinses fast wash doesn't spin, goes into medium speed tumbles at medium water level for longer than the previous fast wash.

Yep if you press time saver you get the 15min cycle!
