With the World Cup on our screens in November, and Eurovision on home turf next year, we'll be hosting friends and family for the long run. And, while hosting is a relatively enjoyable experience, having a washing machine making a racket over your football chants can be embarrassing!

Of course, with the cost of living crisis, investing in white goods can be a bit of a tall ask financially. So if your goal is to seek out a new machine, consider trading in your old appliance for a Hotpoint hero this October. An A-rated washer will not only save you money on energy and water in the long run, but you'll also help do your part for the environment too.

Christmas is less than 10 weeks away, and with football shirts and seasonal outfits on standby, you'll need a reliable and winning washer if you're going to survive the festive and footie period.

Until 31st October, you can sub off a substandard machine for an energy-efficient replacement. As part of AO's trade-in transfer window, they'll do the hard graft of picking up your old appliance for free and take it away to their recycling centre when they drop off your new one.

Yes, even if your machine is faulty, you'll be pleased to know that it still qualifies. Even if it's stopped working completely, you can still go for goal and have your goods in time for when you'll need them most. So whatever the football tournament has in store, you can guarantee it's coming home when it comes to sourcing the best new washing machine for your home.

Why choose a Hotpoint ActiveCare washing machine?

Let's face it, beer, ketchup, and pizza and red wine are all magnets to clothing whether you're cheering on the Three Lions, hosting a Halloween party or snuggling down for an early Christmas movie. Thankfully, Hotpoint's ActiveCare range is developed to protect your laundry by removing more than 100* of the most stubborn stains, even at temperatures as low as 20 degrees. 

Christmas can also be a time when we don our glad rags, so sequins, silk, and sparkle are all on the cards. Instead of spending money on unnecessarily dry cleaning (and finding the time to pick it up), choose a Hotpoint machine with a dedicated Delicate Wash programme for gentle cleaning. Selected models also have steam options, which will not only cut out creasing and can alleviate the need for an iron altogether but also get rid of bacteria, refresh and soften your clothes.

Prefer to be cosy and chic? That light-coloured cashmere jumper or scarf you often pair with a boots and leather skirt can be laundered using the wool programme which washes on cooler temperatures with a lighter drum motion. It'll also do a good job on those novelty jumpers so you can pull out those sassy slogan knits and questionable cardigans we forcibly wear for Crimbo cheer.

And, who can resist a crisp walk after festive food? While we're full to the brim with Turkey and the good intent for the year ahead, dogs and children can't resist zoomies or a muddy puddle. Thankfully, Hotpoint's washing machines not only remove stubborn stains, but they can remove them quickly, reducing the wash time by activating ActiveCare or the Rapid wash options.

If you're staying in-in, no one wants their washing machine to cramp the Christmas playlist or drown out a seasonal special on the telly, By opting for a Hotpoint washing machine, you can set and forget, whilst it works quietly in the background.

What's more, ActiveCare technology increases the cleaning power by +60% by pre-mixing the water and detergent to create a mousse that can remove even stubborn stains at temperatures as low as 20°C!**
