HOTPOINT RSG964JW SMART+ Washing Machine // Review


When I was asked to test out the Hotpoint RSG964JW Smart + Washing Machine, I was really excited, especially with the fact that it boasted a 9kg drum.

With two very messy boys and a Matt, my previous washing machine was always on the go and I never seemed to be able to get through the mountain of washing in my kitchen. Whilst I must admit my previous washing machine was an absolutely brilliant machine, the drum on my old washing machine was only a 7kg. This meant when the kids were ill at night and their bedding needed washing, I had to wash their duvets by hand in the bath. They took forever to dry, even if left to dry on the radiators.

With the Hotpoint RSG964JW Smart + Washing Machine, I can wash their duvets with no problem at all and with the 1600rpm spin cycle they come out of the machine nearly dry.

Over the last month, I have really put the Hotpoint RSG964JW Smart + Washing Machine through its paces and I am please to say that it has truly exceeded my expectations. It was easy to install and I didn’t need to read the instructions.

There are 14 different wash programmes available for every type of clothing. I’ve mainly used the Anti-Stain Turbo 45, Cotton and the Duvet programmes.

I found that all my washing was washed perfectly first time around.  Lucas has a habit of wiping his mouth on his sleeve especially after eating so his sleeves are always covered in food like spaghetti sauce. Cameron also fell over and gashed his knee really bad. His trousers were covered in blood. The washing machine managed to get these tough stains out with ease. This wouldn’t have happened with my old machine.

I must say here that the wash programmes are a lot longer than I am used to even using the time saver. However this is outweighed by the fact that you can wash a lot more clothes in this machine than my previous washing machine.

You can customise these programmes further using the display panel.

The display panel allows you to add an extra rinse, change the speed of the spin, change the temperature, delay the wash for up to 24 hours and reduce the time of the of the wash using time saver.

You can also lock the display panel to stop little fingers changing your wash halfway through the cycle through their love of pressing buttons!

It also has the button for Direct Injection

Direct Injection helps remove more than 100 stains at just 20 degrees. Direct Injection is a premix of water and detergent that is injected directly into the wash as a cleaning foam. This results in detergent enzymes activating faster, penetrating fibres better and therefore delivering a deeper clean even at low temperatures. You can turn this feature on when you have heavily stained clothes.

One thing I also really love with this machine is how quiet it is. Apart from filling up and when it’s about to spin, you wouldn’t even know it was on. For the first few washes I found myself going back into the kitchen to make sure it was working.

The Hotpoint RSG964JW Smart + Washing Machine is a cold fill washing machine that still boasts a A+++ (-10%) energy rating. It also comes with a 10 year parts guarantee for your peace of mind.

The washing machine also has a self cleaning function and turns off after 30 mins of inactivity.

Overall the Hotpoint RSG964JW Smart + Washing Machine is fantastic value for money at only £399.99.

The only problem I have now is finding the space to dry all the clothes.

    Ah a large drum! I love the extra features this has and who doesn't love quiet appliances which is good considering the 9kg drum and all the clothes and duvets you can spin lol.

    Sounds like a wonderful washing machine! 1600rpm is really good as you get your clothes almost dry when you take them out of the washing machine!

    My washing machine sounds like it's running round the house when it's turned on so I'd love a quiet one! Sounds like you've got your work cutout with all that washing haha!

    ohhh my washing machine is on it's last legs, it keeps making an odd noise and randomly pausing itself, next time I will stick with hotpoint!! I love that this one has an direct injection feature. The lock display function is a great idea too 😀 this sounds like a fab machine and I'll certainly bear this in mind for the future (Probably very near future the way my machine is going)

    What an amazing sounding washing machine – I love that it is quiet, our washer is quieter than our previous one but it is still quite noisy.

  8. Hannah Heartss May 31, 2016 / 2:38 pm

    Wow its huge! Can't believe how quite it is – mine is SO loud!!

    Wow you sure can fit a lot in there. I live on my own so a smaller washing machine works for me but I bet this is so useful for a family x

    I like that you can customize the programmes to suit your washing load and are even able to add extra time. That is one smart washing machine!

    This looks amazing – I have a machine with a tiny drum and it is quite basic. I would love this! Kaz x

    This washing machine sounds awesome, I don't personally own a washing machine in my apartment but if I buy a house in the near future this washing machine would be perfect. Love the fact that its not too noisy some machines are so loud.
