Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW 3.5 Cu. Ft. White Top Load Washing Machine Review
Hotpoint's HTWP1200DWW is a cheap washer that does as advertised.
There are three different cycles: Colors, Whites, and Permanent Press. In addition, you can set each of these cycles to either a light or heavy setting. You can also set the washer for a small, large or super sized load. Temperature wise, there's cold to cold, cold to warm and warm to hot, in real terms these temperatures ranged from 85 to 124 degrees. Finally, you can turn power rise on or off which is supposed to wash away an excess fabric softener. Doing the math, there are 108 different settings. Although that's a lot of settings, it doesn't offer a lot of control. For example, spin speed and water usage will be beyond your ability to effect.
Additional Wash Options
Beyond the wash cycles, temperature, and load size, the Hotpoint HTWP1200DWW has a power rinse feature used to wash away excess fabric softener. It would have been nice to see the option to add an extra spin at the end due to the high water retention that this washer had. We'd also like to have been able to control the spin speed in order to curtail some of the damage that this washer did.
