Product information

Designed by Makio Hasuike exclusively for John Lewis

The Hotpoint WMUD843BC washing machine is the obvious choice when your busy lifestyle demands a premium washing performance.

A generous 8kg capacity holds more than enough space for even the busiest household’s washing needs. Its 16 programmes include a reduced creasing cycle for easier ironing and an Eco wash that works at lower temperatures for excellent and efficient cleaning performance.

The Hotpoint WMUD843BC Woolmark Platinum Care cares for wool and cashmere garments as if by hand. The drum moves in only one direction during the cycle, which means the garments are held to the sides of the drum, passing through water at the base. This means there is less friction and no 'bobbling'.

Hotpoint have revolutionised washing with intelligent new Anti-stain technology. The Anti-Stain cycle on the WMUD843BC cleverly manages water, agitation and temperature to ensure the hardest of stains - including fruit, blood, chocolate, grass and felt-tip pen - are lifted, whilst constantly protecting colours and fabrics. And this all works without the need for pre-treatment.

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. An Eco Wash option saves around 50-70% of energy versus a 30 degree cycle.

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 iScreen display shows detailed programme information and includes a memory function to store your favourite 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.

Q & As

Hotpoint Signature WMUD843BC Washing Machine, 8kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White 4.9 5 17 17
Good choice Very pleased with this machine. It was not my first choice but I dithered and missed Jonelle's special offer on an AEG, however, this is a very good alternative. Washes well at all temperatures including the very Eco friendly 20 degree cotton wash. It has a huge drum which I have yet to manage to fill despite washing endless animal blankets and towels. The 1400 rpm spin is excellent. Any gripes? Yes, two small ones: one - there is no facility for washing a half load which would be a real bonus with such a big drum; two - we have been unable to find a filter and are concerned that we are not going to be able to remove the surplus pet hairs , we use a pet hair wash bag but they still build up. However, I would recommend this no nonsense machine for those looking efficient cleaning. 09 September 2014
Hotpoint Washer Bought this to replace my 14 year old Hotpoint washer and because of the excellent service this had given decided to stay with the same make but chose one with a larger drum and glad I did as this enables me to wash bedding in one load rather than two. Don't think I will use all the programmes on the new washer but do like the fact that I can control temperature, spin speed and length of wash on the programmes I use most frequently. Been very pleased with this washer so far and hope it continues to give the service I have had previously from a Hotpoint washer. 05 August 2014
Excellent machine This machine is great and so quiet. We read the reviews here before buying, so wanted to add our thoughts to some points raised. It's true that some cycles are pretty long. However, we mainly use the quick 'mix' cycles (30mins and 1hr) for everyday washes and they do clean well. I've also used the 'bed &bath' cycle for towels and bed linen and it seems that the machine will adjust the time down if the load is light. The door seal does retain some water (not unusual), but tuck a bit of kitchen paper in there for a minute and problem solved. All in all, very happy indeed with this machine. 30 July 2014
Hotpoint Signature WMUD843BC So far so good. The machine does everything that we want it to do and it is far quieter that our old machine that we'd had for 10 years (also a Hotpoint). I'll be well happy if this one lasts that long as well. Regarding the A+++ rating, we have a watt meter fitted and, although the cycles are long, it does appear to use little electricity. The large drum is a bonus as well as we can fit loads in...a benefit for a young family! 20 June 2014
Great !! What a great washing machine. Had a Hotpoint before and it lasted over twenty years!!!! This machine is quiet and efficient. The delivery men from John Lewis were so helpful too. 10 June 2014
Really quiet Really like this machine - easy to use and love the quietness of it. Fantastic that it uses both hot and cold water - especially when hot water available - surely this must be more economical. The only downside so far is that water lies in the rubber seal inside the machine - have to let this drain out through the 3 small holes and wipe down - this could possibly lead to quicker deterioration of the rubber. 26 April 2014
Hotpoint Signature WMUD843BC Washing Machine ~ brilliant Not had this too long but can say that the anti-stain definitely works and removed several previously stubborn stains. So quiet too. 22 April 2014
Very good value - and does the job! When my top-of-the-range machine eventually gave up the ghost, I was appalled to see how prices had risen since I last bought a machine, about 14 years ago. I still had fond memories of a very early Hotpoint ( a top-loader) which had lasted for 20 years without a problem, so I really don't know why I ever left Hotpoint to go for the very expensive machine I bought next (the one that has just died). Anyway, bearing all this in mind, and after reading all the positive reports, I went for it. I have now had my Hotpoint for about three weeks, and it is working beautifully. I had to get my head around the rather sophisticated controls, which seem to offer every option under the sun (I had become used to simpler stuff), but I've got the hang of it now, and it does an excellent job, and is very quiet. Good old Hotpoint! They really do make excellent washing machines. 08 April 2014
