2 temperature settings
Noise level 49dB(A) emitted
Filter system included
Water usage ~ 11L/cycle
Energy rating status A+
Size is 82H x 59.5W x 57D cm
Warranty 1 year labour plus 10 years for parts

Hotpoint Dishwasher Overview:

  • Up next we have an Integrated solution and it’s the Hotpoint White Full Size Integrated Dishwasher code LTB4B019 which is one of the better solutions if you need a dishwasher which can be integrated into your kitchen layout. Home deliveries are generally less than 5 working days and unlike the previous model, you can choose the recycling and installation services which can be around £100+ extra when seen at the time of our review (please note that installations for the integrated model are not always available and may need to be organised locally)
  • This integrated dishwasher has 13 place settings and an energy A+ rating status which means lower utility bills at the end of the day. The layout of the racks is well spaced out and it gives plenty of room for various cutlery, pots, dishes, cups, bowls and glassware. You get 4 cycles here which includes the prewash and the economy mode but please be aware that there is no quick wash option for this particular model.
  • The best cycle we have seen is the economy mode however the Intensive cycle works even better on heavier soiled plates and pots and the drying system works in a few minutes off the residual heat system. The basket racks can hold everything in securely in place and the cutlery basket works great to fit in all those knives, forks and spoons.
  • You get 2 temperature settings here along with 4 programmes which include the economy mode, prewash, intensive and the indicators for the salt refill and rinse are provided as standard. The noise level is low at just 46 dB(A) the dimensions are slightly smaller at 82cm high by 59.5cm wide by 57cm deep and it comes backed with the same warranty of 10 years for parts and 1 year for labour.

Swift home deliveries
Install & recycling options
Optional credit card plans
Larger 14 place settings

30 minute quick wash
Water usage ~ 9.5L/cycle
Energy rating status A++
Size is 85H x 60W x 59D cm

Hotpoint Dishwasher Overview:

  • Our third Hotpoint dishwasher and probably one of our favourites is the Hotpoint White Full Size Dishwasher reference code HFO3C22WF which comes with more place settings and a higher energy rating status than the previous 2 models already outlined. Unlike the integrated model, this model does include a quick wash solution of just 30 minutes which is a lot better than waiting over 1 or 2 hours to get your washing done.
  • One of the main attractions here is the 3D Zone Wash Technology mechanism which allows you to choose either more power or more energy efficiency and the results from heavily soiled dishes and pots are quite impressive. While this appliance will cost you more, you do get an improved solution when it comes to water pressure and water calibration in conjunction with the Inverter motor provided. This helps to hit the right spots at the right time so to speak.
  • There are 14 place settings here along with 9 programmes and it comes backed with the higher A++ energy rating status. Some of the programmes you can expect to get are prewash, economy mode, quick wash, intensive and you have the ability to adjust the top basket rack if needed to suit larger items underneath.
  • You get the same warranty as the rest (1 year labour & 10 year parts) and the dimensions to note when it comes to installation is 85m high by 60cm wide by 59cm deep. There are the indicators when rinse aid or salt needs to be added and the delay starter works longer up to 24 hours.
  • The noise level is lower here also at just 43 dB(A), the level of water used on average per cycle is also lower at just 9.5 litres per cycle and it comes with the overflow protection along with the child lock solution for any little ones in your home

Part 3: Video Overview Summary

For your convenience, a short video summary is also outlined below which covers most of the main points you need to know before you commit to any purchase – feel free to check it out which will only take a few minutes of your time

Part 4: Main Pros & Cons to be aware of:

Main Pros to be Noted:

  • One of the main attractions here is definitely the excellent cleaning results seen over and over again with getting all of your dishes, cups, cutlery and pots spotless clean. When it comes to getting the job done, this appliance does not disappoint
  • When the appliance is running at full power, the low levels of noise emitted are so low and you hardly even notice it is even switched on.
  • The top adjustable tray rack is a nice bonus to have especially when it comes to fitting in larger pots and pans – the more flexibility you have, the better you are off in the long run.
  • Overall, we believe they provide great value for money for what you are getting. They may not be the best Dishwashers around, but they can certainly do the job impressively at a price range many people can afford.

Main Cons to be noted:

  • Some of the models lack a child lock protection function which is available on other dishwasher brands (it is available on model code below HFO3C22WF though)
  • The ability to handle larger plates such as 28/30cm diameter on the integrated dishwasher is somewhat limited also. You need to adjust the top basket rack to accommodate larger dishes from what we have seen.
  • There is no Smart connectivity capability, so everything needs to be controlled and managed by yourself and some of the cycles take far too long to complete in particular the economy mode
  • The delay starter works up to 8 hours long where we have seen other dishwashers with longer capabilities. Only a select number of Hotpoint dishwashers gives the 24-hour delay starter.
  • Installation and recycling services are not always available on every single model in the range – you need to double check them individually, especially when it comes to the Integrated dishwashers and there doesn’t appear to be any quick wash option on the integrated dishwasher either

Part 6: Conclusion & Optional Feedback

After reviewing the various Hotpoint dishwashers, we can definitely recommend these dishwashers as they provide great value for money and they deliver excellent cleaning results over and over again. The controls are really easy to manage so there are no complications when operating these dishwashers. In addition, the filter works fine and the level of noise emitted is hardly noticeable which is a major plus and the ability to clean those dinner pots means a lot less work is needed on your end after your family gatherings.

For different washes, the programmes available work as you would expect and the simplicity of operation is a big advantage unlike other dishwasher types that can be somewhat difficult to navigate. Further information on our top recommendation plus customer reviews can be viewed below…
