Home Depot specs for Hotpoint 3.7 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer say "Included Items"="Hoses,Power cord" , however, I just found the Hotpoint manual online which states hoses are NOT included with this model. Can someone verify hoses are included?

Does water level cover clothes?

This question is from 3.6 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
March 20, 2015
I don't understand the whole "it fills 14 inches on the super setting" thing, whether that's how high the water reaches when it's empty or when it's full. I don't just want my clothes to be wet, I want them to be swimming. In the HE machines I can't even see any water.

How high is the "super" level (halfway, to the top, etc.) When the machine is empty vs full?

Is there a way to make it fill to the top?

I experimented with the different wash cycles water levels. The Super mode gets the water up to the top of the agitator. Somewhat disappointing were the rinse level water levels. Recommend using the Power Rinse option for best results. Power rinse water level is the same as Super wash water level.

The tub is 16 inches deep. I personally turned the Options knob to Power Rinse which makes it fill with a little more water too per the directions. When I tried the Super level one time there was so much water, it looked clear to the top, it worried me that it was too full. I haven't tried that again. I use the Extra Large water level and my clothes are swimming in water. I have never tried filling the machine with NO clothes just to see how deep the water is. But there is plenty of water. I am single woman. I don't know how many clothes you want to put in at one time! I bought this one because I read that the HE machines don't get the clothes wet. This one is like the old style machines that really used water. The only drawback is that it doesn't use much hot water. If you want hot water you have to turn off the cold water faucet. But I haven't needed that. I hope this reassures you. For me with clothes and water in the tub the Super level went clear to the top. I was afraid it might overflow. Read Less

Can you select the water temperature for the rinse cycle?

This question is from 3.6 DOE cu. ft. Top Load Washer in White
Asked by
Maryland
Read all my Q&A
November 30, 2014
I've heard that in many new washers, you can't select the temperature of the rinse cycle, and that the default is a cold water rinse. Can I somehow get this washer to have a warm or hot water rinse? If not, what would happen if I manually add hot water to the tub when the machine is filling up during the rinse cycle? This is important to me because in my experience, warm/hot water rinses rinse more thoroughly than cold water rinses. Thank you.

It has the Hot/cold, Cold/Cold, Warm/Cold setting that is standard for most 'old school' machines. I know that some of the digital machines have more advanced settings where you can choose a rinse setting independant of the wash temperature, but this one is not so fancy as that.

Or, if you happen to catch it during the rinse cycle , you can add it during the rinse cycle (meaning the lid does not lock).
Although I find it easier to put the detergent and the softener in all at the beginning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 474 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A washer that washes! Finally, a machine that does the job without second guessing you on should this load be washed as directed or shall the machine over rule you. I love the fact it starts right up and begins the process of cleaning and does a good job. September 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A darn good value We bought the washer and gas dryer as a set 8 months ago. Washer spins the clothes really dry. It is quiet and washes the clothes just fine. The gas dryer works like a charm also. Wish it had a light in the drum though. So far very happy with purchase. September 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fed up with HE! We purchased this washer and matching dryer after owning one of the top of the line HE top loads. HE is horrible! Nothing was clean and we ended up washing everything twice. This washer is absolutely wonderful! The water level is high and our clothes are actually covered with the water! The agitator is just like the old washers and rotates your clothes back and forth and under and over making sure they get clean. The first thing I washed was a King Sized quilt and it handled the job just great! It's fairly quiet and I honestly don't have any complaints at all. If you want a high water level make sure you get this model with the power rinse feature and wash on Super. I'm so glad to have a Good non-HE washer and truly clean clothes again! September 15, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gave it 1 year I gave this washer a year of light use. First, be aware you will not have "hot" water per new regulations by the government . I called and said the "hot" water was lukewarm at best. I think the person repeated 3 times the new regulation regarding the temperature of the water. If they send a tech out and nothing is wrong with the washer, you will be charged with a service call. I do not overload my washer and most of my loads are small. Whether this is a factor, I really don't know. However, when the cycle is done, the clothes, sheets, or towels come out like an accordion. Luckily, the dryer takes out the wrinkles. But if you wanted to line dry, you are going to have to use an iron when they are dry. Also, there is no delicate cycle. I am donating this and buying a better washer. September 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buy Another Brand If your accustomed to rigorous washer agitation and full rinse cycles this isn't the washer for you, I wouldn't recommend this washer to anyone and I am considering donating it and getting another brand or saving and buying another brand for Christmas. We have only had it for a few hours and already placed a service call, hopefully the product is defective and its poor quality isnt standard or what others are giving 4 or 5 stars. I am very disappointed. Keep in mind - appliances are not refundable, spend the extra money and get another brand. In all fairness the matching dryer is great, but as I said I am truly disappointed with the washer. After taxes, etc a total waste of 450$. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Repeat Washer I use this washer in a rental house. It must be a good one because the last tenant took it with her when she moved. This purchase is simply a replacement washer. September 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by decent product compared to the water saver unit without an agitator, it is way better. The cloths feel clean now. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A real washer It's nice to find a real washing machine that has a real agitator and uses enough water to actually get the clothes clean. These things are getting hard to find. This one runs quietly. The price is pretty good, too. August 25, 2016
