Optimum results

The laundry is made simple and easy with the Hoover WDXA496A2 Washer Dryer.

I like the varied wash and dry cycles
I would have liked to have the 59 minute wash cycle at 60 degrees and this isn't on any more

This is very easy to use, and understand. Love the fact you can delay your washes, and also set the dryer to come on straight after. Means I can load it at night to start in the morning and by the time I come home I've got nice dry towels.
I find it pretty difficult to get the weight right for washing versus drying. So sometimes the stuff is still damp. Also this being my first washer dryer - the fluff that comes onto your dark washing is a real nuisance.
