  • Choose the perfect programme for each and every one of your laundry loads with the clever Hotpoint HE8L493G Washing Machine.

    Fit more in

    With an ample load capacity of up to 8 kg, the HE8L493G Washing Machine is perfect for busy households, making it easy to fit more into one load and saving time and money.

    Leaving only 53% of water after each wash, the 1400 rpm helps clothes dry quicker so you can have your family's favourite outfit clean and dry in no time.

    Care that suits each load

    With the HE8L493G you'll be able to tackle stubborn dirt and stains with any one of the 16 programmes and variable temperatures.

    You'll have the perfect cycles for all your delicate garments and underwear that requires gentle care with the selection of special care programmes such as Ultra Delicates, Silk or Lingerie settings.

    Perfect for school shirts, the useful Shirt programmes reduces the amount of creases when washing to limit the time you spend ironing them.

    The Woolmark Platinum Care wash offers you low spin speeds to stop any friction between clothes to keep them in a like-new condition for as long as possible.

    This A+++ washing machine also has an Eco cycle for those who are more environmentally conscious, as it washes without wasting any heat or energy. When in Eco mode, the HE8L493G will use less than the standard 52.7 litres per cycle, making it extremely cost effective to run. 

    On hand to help

    Check on wash cycle settings and other information using the dials and LED indicators to help you time your loading and unloading.

    Fill your laundry room with practicality and functionality with the Hotpoint HE8L493G Washing Machine in a graphite finish.
