Hotpoint Launches New Washing Machine Range

Hotpoint has launched a brand new range of washing machines, which effectively remove even the most stubborn every day stains without requiring pre-treatment.

The new range is available in capacities of seven, eight, nine and 10 kg, providing flexible options to suit a variety of households and lifestyles. Designed to care for your clothes, the brand new washing machine range benefits from a series of innovations, which work together to effectively remove common household stains. What’s more, the range further benefits from the new Extra Touch button, allowing you to add a final touch of care to your laundry, including a Rapid Option and a Steam Hygiene function.

The new Hotpoint 8 kg washing machine (NSWM 863C W UK) benefits from the Anti Stain 40programme, a dedicated cycle that effectively tackles the most widespread every day stains, without requiring you to pre-treat your laundry. The Anti Stain 40programme automatically adjusts the temperature of the wash and activates intelligent Digital Motion Technology, which achieves up to 10 different drum rotations to optimise the performance of the detergent. This function works to specifically treat and eliminate the most common household stains, improving the overall performance of the wash, while protecting and caring for your laundry.

The new Hotpoint range of washing machines further benefits from the Full Load 45 programme, perfect for consumers that require flexibility from their laundry appliance. Research into consumer preferences has found that stain removal, protection of clothes and quicker wash cycles are purchase drivers within the market for laundry appliances*. Full Load 45 effectively washes an entire load in just 45 minutes without compromising on performance, allowing you to get back to caring for what matters most.

To add a final touch of care to laundry, the appliance features the brand new Extra Touch button, enabling you to select a rapid wash, or to add steam, at the touch of a button. Pushing the Extra Touch button once activates the Rapid Option, which allows you to reduce the length of the wash by up to 50 per cent**, while guaranteeing optimal performance. Increasing flexibility for users, the Rapid Option cycle, along with the wide range of other programmes available on the new Hotpoint range of washing machines, such as Rapid 30′, Woolmark and Eco Cotton, allows you to tailor your choice of cycle to suit your own individual needs and preferences. By simply pushing the Extra Touch button twice, the Steam Hygiene function is initiated, activating a 20 minute steam cycle. The Steam Hygiene programme injects freshness into clothes naturally, purifying laundry while eliminating up to 99.9 per cent of the most common bacteria. Furthermore, the washing machine boasts an Anti-Allergy programme, which neutralises and removes 99.9 per cent of allergens including dust mites and pollen, perfect for those that suffer with allergies and sensitive skin.

The brand new Hotpoint range of washing machine (NSWM 863C W UK) benefits from an efficient ‘A+++’ energy rating and boasts a stylish and contemporary design. What’s more, the appliance further features a brand new user interface, control panel and dial, making operation both smooth and intuitive, and maximising ease of use.

Catherine Balderson, Senior Hotpoint Brand Manager says: “Hotpoint is passionate about manufacturing products that protect and care for consumers’ clothes and laundry, and the brand new range of washing machines is a perfect example. Thanks to its series of dedicated and innovative features, such as the new Extra Touch button and Anti Stain 40 programme, consumers can benefit from an outstanding, yet gentle, cleaning performance, meaning that they are now able to remove even the most stubborn household stains, while caring for their clothes.”
