    The Hoover WDXOA 496AF Smart NFC 9 kg Washer Dryer pairs the latest clothes cleaning technology with the ability to pair with your Android smartphone.

    Its One Touch NFC feature lets you check up on your washing machine from your smartphone. Download the Hoover Wizard app to your handset, and you'll be able to download new cycles, and check up on your machine from your mobile.

    It works in the same way as contactless payments. Just hover your smartphone above the machine to instantly monitor and manage its settings through the app.

    Intelligent sensor washing

    An energy-saving KG mode uses an automatic sensor that weighs your laundry at the start of the cycle. Once your laundry has been weighed, the machine adjusts the cycle time, water amount, and electricity consumption to suit your wash load.

    Sensor drying

    With sensor drying, the machine stops the cycle when your clothes are dry, protecting fabrics, and saving energy. A maximum spin speed of 1400 rpm also helps to reduce drying times after a wash cycle.

    Cork Busy mum or dad
    Large drum
    Short wash option
    Stopped working after 2 months
    It shreds colour catchers, imagine what it does to clothes and that isn't even on full spin.
    Didn't come with a user manual. It has few instuctions for using from a smart device.
    Smart device does not work with android
    The drain/spin option takes 10 mins, I'm used to 3.
