Hotpoint Signature WMEF722BC Washing Machine, 7kg Load, A++ Energy Rating, 1200rpm Spin, White

Special offer

Product information

Designed by Makio Hasuike exclusively for John Lewis

Enjoy outstanding cleaning performance with the Hotpoint WMEF722BC washing machine. Its 7kg capacity holds more than enough space for a busy household, and with 16 programmes there is a setting for every wash load.

The anti-allergy cycle is particularly acclaimed: this programme uses a combination of high temperatures and extra rinsing to significantly reduce major allergens, and is endorsed by Allergy UK. Hotpoint’s revolutionary Anti-stain cycle cleverly manages water, agitation and temperature to ensure the hardest of stains are lifted - including fruit, blood, chocolate, grass and felt-tip pen. It constantly protects colours and fabrics too, and this all works without the need for pre-treatment.

Using the dedicated Whites cycle your clothes are kept brighter for longer, and your woollens will be perfectly cared for too thanks to the wool cycle being endorsed with the prestigious Platinum Care Woolmark. Hotpoint’s innovative Sunwash Hot and Cold system fill, saves money and energy as hot water use is regulated, as and when required, for the perfect washing results. The machine will only draw in hot water on washes over 50 degrees. Washes of 20, 30 or 40 degrees will draw in cold water only.  A "Y" connector is supplied with the WMEF722BC for connection to cold water only supply.

Selecting the intensity of your wash is easy too with the cleaning action selector: simply decide between Delicate, Normal and Intensive options. And with a Time Saver option, you can reduce the length of programmes for when you need your clothes in a hurry.

A handy digital display provides information on the selected programme, and the time remaining until the end of the programme. The delay timer lets you choose when you want the programme to start, for ultimate convenience. A cool white finish with a striking anthracite door tops off this machine.

For over 100 years, Hotpoint have made life easier and delivered outstanding results with their innovative and intelligent appliances.

Very quiet machine Very happy to write this review the machine is everything and more,you are virtually choosing your own programme. The temperature control and reduce time options means you can wash your clothes at your own programme and know your washing will be clean even at lower temperatures.i have used several Combinations and been very happy with all results. The machine has both hot and cold fill which very few makes offer. 08 July 2014
really good machine I have always had hotpoint machines. When bought this one it was a bit daunting as my other machine was select cycle and start. This is the same but wash takes bit longer and has time saver which I use all the time. I am very pleased with it. Don't be put off by all the simbles on the front. The hand book was self explanatory thank you hotpoint 08 July 2014
No 50 or 90 deg wash! Just received the washing machine the other day. I bought it because it was a hot and cold fill and not many makers produced them now. I am very disappointed to find there is no 50 or 90 deg wash on this machine - two setting I have always used on other makes. I feel It is more hygienic to wash dish towels, hand and bath towels at 90. Washing powders claim to take out stains but that does not kill germs. I very seldom use 60 and the setting for 40 takes in no hot water. I assumed there would be a 50 setting taking in hot and cold water :-( I should have enlarged the photo of the machine settings on here before buying but assumed it would have a 90 deg wash as I've never had one before that didn't. Must say the low temp washes have turned out well and it's a very quiet machine that spins really dry. I will just have to go back in time and boil my dishcloths and towel in a pot :-) 07 June 2014
Excellent choice Very pleased with the result of my choice of washing machine. It is easy to operate all the different functions of use especially using the time saver. All washing needs less drying time afterwards and less ironing and therefore I save more time in doing the task. I am very satisfied with my choice. 23 May 2014
delightful product. delighted with our hotpoint washing machine - efficient - simple to use - so very quiet.. 22 May 2014
Easy to use Bought this washing machine as a replacement for my old Bosch. I am pleased it has hot and cold fill as it is more economical to use. I am enjoying using most of the 15 different programs which my old one did not have. I find it very quite and so far I am pleased with it. The reason I am giving only 4 stars is because I have only had it for about a month. By registering the warranty you get 5 years on parts and by buying through John Lewis 2 year warranty. 30 April 2014
Delighted with product So easy to use and very easy to streamline each programme to your needs. Would definitely recommend. Also excellent service with delivery. Delivery Team were extremely courteous and helpful. 24 March 2014
Hotpoint Signature Received this today and really pleased with the product so far. A bit of finger trouble to start with (my old washing machine was 14 years - so technology has moved on a bit from then) but John Lewis/Hotpoint soon put me right. Hope this machine lasts as long as the last one!! 08 March 2014
