The Hotpoint freestanding 8 kg washing machine (NSWM 863C W UK), launched in November 2019, has been developed to care for clothes and effectively remove even the most stubborn every day stains without requiring pre-treatment.

The Anti Stain 40ᵒ programme is a dedicated cycle that effectively tackles the most widespread every day stains, without requiring the user to pre-treat their laundry. The Anti Stain 40ᵒ programme automatically adjusts the temperature of the wash and activates intelligent Digital Motion Technology, which achieves up to 10 different drum rotations to optimise the performance of the detergent.
