I have had great results with this washing machine. I have been using it for 8 months and I do at least 9 loads of laundry a week and the clothes always come out clean. There are a variety of settings and temperatures that I used depending on what clothes are being washed. The washing machine is not too loud either which is great with a baby in the house. The washing machine stays clean and does not have any lingering odors. I would recommend this washer because of the ease of use, its settings and the fact that the clothes are well washed without getting worn out. I previously had not heard of Hotpoints but I am very pleased with their products so far.
