Hotpoint washing machines have not only become more reliable but in my opinion are the best looking machines on the market, where other makes seem to have stood still in time and look rather dated. The machine pictured is the Hotpoint Ultima WMUD962 which is the top of the range, it comes with a silent motor, has a 9kg load and has a very fast 1600 rpm spin. If your machine is located in your kitchen this is the machine for you as its so incredibly quite.
Phillips Tumble Dryer from the early 1980`s still working after all these years. I used to work for Phillips in the 80`s and remember this model well. My customer in Chobham (Woking) who owns this dryer said that it is used all the time and in the 30 years that they have had it, it has never gone wrong or been repaired. Phillips domestic appliances was sold to Whirlpool and went down hill very fast. Appliances will not last anything like 30 years now although Bosch Neff & Siemens appliances still last well and a lot longer than our manufactures.
Hotpoint washing machine from 10 years ago still going strong. this is one of the last real Hotpoints before they were bought out by the Merloni group that are the owners of Indesit and Ariston.
The only thing wrong with this one was the lower concrete weight had come loose causing a lot of noise on spin.
Most people think its drum bearings when making this much noise.
