For some households, a top-loading washing machine such as the Hotpoint WTL500P is preferable to a front-loading one. There’s no difference in functionality: the Hotpoint WTL500P washing machine has an A rating for washing performance and an A for energy efficiency. Spin speed is 1000rpm. Up to 5kg of wash load can be dealt in a single wash, which can also benefit from choice features such as spin cycle control, automatic consumption control and crease reduction. Progress in any of the 4 programmes is shown in the LED display.
