Hotpoint WDAL8640P Washer Dryer, 8kg Wash/6kg Dry Load, A Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White

Product information

A handy all-in-one wash and dry performance makes this machine extra useful in the busier household. It hosts a huge 8kg load capacity for even the most demanding users, and you can wash and dry a very generous 6kg load in one go.

The excellent A-rated Hotpoint WDAL8640P washer dryer includes the most advanced anti stain treatment yet – this cycle removes even the most difficult stains thanks to its intelligent electronic water and temperature control. Other programmes include:

  • Dedicated whites cycle to ensure garments maintain their whiteness for longer
  • Anti-allergy programme eliminates harmful allergens for those with more sensitive skin
  • Quick 45 minute wash and dry cycle for when you are in a hurry
  • Eco drying option
  • Platinum Woolmark accredited cycle


The condenser dryer uses sensor drying which stops the cycle once the selected moisture level has been reached, so your fabrics won’t be over-dried or damaged. Sequence indicator lights provide instant feedback and inform on the status of the cycle.

Automatic Load Adjustment Information Automatically adjusts water level for a smaller load, thus saving time and money
Delicate Wash Information This wash cycle uses a lesser degree of agitation and the spin cycle uses a slow spin to extract water from your laundry. This reduces the agitation and abrasion on clothes helping to protect delicate fabrics

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a good product The product was faulty and only worked moderately well on a quick wash. It was really difficult to get through to Hotpoint in order to get the appliance looked at and when an engineer was able to be booked, he was not that helpful. Therefore, unfortunately, I would not recommend buying this product. I would like to add, however, that the John Lewis Technical Support team were very good in their handling of the issues I experienced and getting the matter resolved so that I was able to return the appliance and get a refund. So I would buy from John Lewis again and recommend them to others. 29 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by So simple to use. Easy to use. Large load so great for families. Only downfall and the reason it doesn't get 5 stars is you can't wash an 8 kg load and set to dry straight after.. You would think it would be designed to do this. 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suuuuuper great - easy to install and use, large drum too!!! 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washing Machine All I can say is that my wife loves the new Hotpoint Washer Dryer, quick wash followed by drying is very good, also it is really quiet. 14 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Back to the Gold Standard For many years I had a predecessor to this washer dryer. Having moved flat I inherited a separate washer and a dryer. At the earliest opportunity I have now upgraded to a new washer dryer, and it is good to have a familiar, reliable machine. 07 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by not a good dryer at all Good for washing but rubbish at drying had half a load and it took 3hours for dry cycle and still came out damp. Cant open door during drying cycle to check if dry. But all drying settings take hours. The function by where it detects when clothes are dry is rubbish clothes are still damp and you cant get it to go back on as it thinks there dry. John lewis customer care and delivery were great i asked to return the product due to it being rubbish and the recent hotpoint recall although mine wasnt part of the recall i still didnt feel safe leaving it on and going out. They took it back gave me a full refund no problems no questions asked. John lewis 5/5. Hotpoint product 1/5. Will buy again from john lewis. 29 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeds expectation Quiet, easy to use, value for money. John Lewis' delivery instructions and times were accurate. Excellent product. 29 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the money Couldn't ask for more for the money. It's quiet and cleans my clothes! Only downside is that the washes can take a long time, normally run it on time saver mode. 15 July 2014
