By chance I came across a thread in another forum the other day, the poster had discovered that the parts diagram for a still current 2021 Hotpoint model, showed a split tub, which would make the bearings replaceable! It was suggested that it probably was designed by Whirlpool and is apparently made in china. Its also got a proper (parts and labour) 5 year manufacturer warrantee. I've not seen a Hotpoint offering that since the 1980s.

I bought a Hotpoint wf860 super silent 1600 spin. At the moment it's not silent while on spin. Not a banging noise, more of a persistent sound in tune with the spinning drum. Also get water on floor after wash ends. Directly below the soap drawer. I've checked the soap drawer before washing and It's fitted in ok. This machine is only 2 years old. The first problem I got was drive belt coming off. I tried to re-fit, with no luck so called a guy out, charged me £30 and said it’ll be fine now, but said it could be something else that started the belt to come loose. Are Hotpoint good make or should I steer clear of them?.
I was just looking for some opinions on the new Hotpoint Aqualtis range. I'm needing to get a new washing machine and really like the look of these and the fact that they are advertised as "super quiet". The problem is that, as they are new, there doesn't appear to be any reviews on the web, including Which?. So am just trying to decide wether to take the gamble on this or not.
