There’s clean, and then there’s 3D Zone Wash clean. That’s what Hotpoint calls its high-tech cleaning system, which uses a winning combination of innovative design and clever electronics to give you the choice of 40% more cleaning power, or 40% more energy efficiency*, the choice is yours. 

That extra cleaning power means there’s no need to soak or pre-wash your cutlery, crockery, pots or pans or put baked-on stains through twice. Just sit back and relax while your Hotpoint makes your pots pristine and your stainless steel shine.

It’s safer, too. Hotpoint’s dedicated Sanitising Cycle can maximise the hygiene of your dishes, by eliminating 99.999%** of bacteria.That means your dishes will come out spotless, and it delivers exceptional cleaning and drying performance too. 

A new way to wash

3D Zone Wash is a whole new way to wash. It adds an extra three spray points for better cleaning of heavily soiled dishes, pots and pans, and it enables you to focus on particular zones – so when you only need to clean a few items, you can focus the wash on just one basket.

3D Zone Wash delivers 40% better cleaning power than non-3D dishwashers, enabling it to cut through even the toughest stains, and it does it quietly and efficiently. It doesn’t just add more spray points: it combines them with a variable speed inverter motor to deliver consistent cleaning power to every part of the load, precision-targeting the water to the places that need it most.

That inverter motor is really clever. In fact, it’s Hotpoint’s most advanced motor yet. Instead of spraying at a single speed, its electronics analyse and optimise its performance to vary the speed and the water pressure. That optimisation makes sure that every item in the load gets the same powerful cleaning. As a result, 3D Zone Wash is incredibly efficient – it has an A++ energy rating – and it’s also incredibly quiet. Thanks to the combination of smarter electronics and improved insulation, the Hotpoint is much quieter than standard dishwashers.

It’s hygienic too. The interior is made from tough, long-lasting stainless steel and features 3-stage water filtration to give you effective cleaning power, and it delivers an extra antibacterial wash for both normal and heavily soiled crockery.

Smart inside and out

3D Zone Wash isn’t just about clever technology. It’s about clever design too. Design such as the colour-coded Flexiload baskets for effortless space creation and the Vertical Zone that enables you to secure pans vertically to free up more space in the lower basket. It’s big enough for 14 full place settings, and the 3D Zone Wash ensures they all get the same stellar cleaning performance. There’s also a handy Express 30 programme for those times when you don’t need to run a full load but you’re running out of cutlery or cups. It delivers the same incredible cleaning in just half an hour.

Hotpoint’s clever cleaning technology can be delicate too. While 3D Zone Wash removes even the toughest baked-on food, the Glass Care programme gently washes your most delicate tumblers and flutes to leave them sparkling.
