This machine was not for me....

published

We have only owned front loaders and this by far tops the line for being the most harsh on our garments and manchester. It definitely washes and with that comes pilling in saying that I believe it would be a great commercial machine for heavy items. Auto-dosing is not very effective even after altering the pre set to the highest option.

On the upside this machine has very quick cycles and if you dont have alot of delicates/gentle machine washables this machine maybe for you.

Have contacted Fisher and Paykel spoken with a lovely lady named Maureen who has been knowledgeable and professional. Will keep posting updates

Purchased in February 2019.

I’ve had Meile Bosch and LG all their flagship models which have failed me at up to $4599 for a front loader.

Am now looking at cheaper options such as this F&P.

When it washes is there a pump that circulates water to the top of the drum?

What is the auto dosing like? Can you adjust the amount of detergent etc?

I'm not sure about pump..you can check in data sheet or speak o sales person as I dont watch the cycle. What I can say is clothes are very clean. Autodose - doesn't work. Tried different brands of liquids, tried increasing dosage through menu. Tried cleaning tray. But not really bothered I just put liquid into manual section and happy. Ive had machine for 4 months. That's my only complaint. For the price with 5 yr factory warranty great value.

When you say auto dose doesn’t work what doesn’t work about it? Is it not dispensing enough ?

Yes, go to F&P website and search extended warranty deals there are a few white good items and only 1 washing machine included. Its the factory extended warranty. No retailers knew about it or promoted it. Still very happy with it.
