Hi, and welcome to this auction for a Hoover 'OPTIMA' (OPH 714D) A+AA energy rated, 7KG load washing machine. 

***Please note that this machine is being re-listed due to a total timewaster ("dotty-woo" do not bid! - your bids will be cancelled & I will report you to ebay!).***

This machine is being sold as FAULTY - fault/error code "E16" appears on the display panel (this apparently indicates that there is a fault with the "open circuit heater element").

The machine has only had about 14 months use and did wash extremely well, until this fault developed.  We then had a nightmare trying to get the machine repaired with unfortunately & unknowingly using a 'cowboy' repair company, who were totally clueless and unprofessional "Premier Electrics" of Southampton (who should probably appear on the BBC's 'Watchdog' programme).

As stated, it IS faulty, but may be ideal for a cheap 'spares or repair' option (these machines currently retail for around GBP260), if someone is willing and able to have a look at it (plumber/DIY/electronics expert), as it may be a really cheap & easy fix - I simply haven't got the time (I'm in the Royal Navy & constantly away). 

I'm auctioning it as it would be a real shame just to take it to the local tip (but I may if I have to).  We've also since bought a new LG machine, hence there is no need for this one.  I need the space in my garage too!!!

Local Pick up only please - cash on collection or PayPal.  Please also be aware that, as this is a faulty item, I cannot accept returns - sorry.

Please only bid if you intend to buy, but please don't hesitate to contact me if you have a query and I will try to answer as best I can. 

No reserve & 99p start, so grab a bargain.

Thanks for looking & good luck bidding!
