Hisense 8kg washer 8 months old
After using for 8 months, twice a week for 1-2 adults, I am disappointed that the door of the machine will not open. Service wait on phone takes 1 hour. Then another wait to get a service appointment. Then another wait for service person.
Machine purchased from JB HiFi Erina with included delivery for $549. Harvey Norman/Domaine were $50 more exxy and wanted $70 to deliver. Disappointed a new machine has this door lock issue and the supplied manual is useless.

You get what you pay for
The only reason I gave it a 3 star instead of 2 is the price point which seems affordable, however I have a few things I do not like about this washing machine. Firstly being the noise.. it is incredibly loud and sounds like an aeroplane taking off. I really do not like the cycle options at all. I am use to an LG that has a quick 30 cycle, however this washing machine only offers a quick 15 which it is not 15 min, more like 30-45 min and the other cycle options display '1 hr+' are more like 2 hours + long. I find this annoying that it incorrect...ly displays the time left on the cycle. I have also found on the quick 15 cycle, I feel as though the clothes are not particularly as clean and smell a bit damp almost (even when using fabric softener and detergent) If you can stretch your budget, I do think LG or Bosche would be a better option, however it is not a terrible washing machine if your after a cheaper alternative and have time to wait out the 2 hour long washes.

Questions & Answers
I have just done a load of washing ,it's has ended but the door won't open
good luck with getting any help
Hi there - I'm trying to work out the best setting to use for a load of washing when I have a mix of different clothes - just purched this new machine - nothing in the user manual lets me know
There is a 55 min cycle called Mix. I use it for soiled jeans, towels, sheets, tea towels. I use quick 15min fast wash for 30 mins for lightly soiled clothing. Just press right side temp button twice for extra time on fast wash.
Oh excellent - thanks very much for that info - very helpful - cheers
You are most welcome!
Does this hisense washer machine HWFM8012 has hot water inlet? At the back is only for cold water? Can I put a Y adapter so it can use cold and hot water.
