Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW 3.5 Cu. Ft. White Top Load Washing Machine Review
Hotpoint's HTWP1200DWW is a cheap washer that does as advertised.
For this Hotpoint washer you are the detergent dispenser. No drawers or pans, just dump a cup of your favorite detergent directly into the Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW and hope it gets distributed evenly.
The Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW will slam shut when you let go of it. Though simple and effective, it may prove a challenge for anyone attempting to multitask.
Ease of Use
The Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW was simple to use, but it wasn't easy. For example, after setting all the dials to their desired settings, you pull the main knob and the machine rumbles to a start, but it never gives any signal that its done. Also, the four dials that control the washer are simple and straightforward, but are so simplistic that there seems to be gaps in their coverage such as a lack of a heavy-duty cycle or the ability to add an extra spin to help dry out our clothing. Finally, when all our laundry was done, we found it a tad difficult to get our load out as all the material inside clung to the sides in wet clumps. This washer would not be recommended to anyone with a back problem because they will need to do some light acrobatics to retrieve their items.
"Four knobs and a door that slams", sounds like the start of a dirty joke. However, it's the control scheme to the Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW.
