Keeps on going

published

I thought I would write about our old washing machine (which we are about to replace), because it has done it's job. We wanted a relatively cheap machine, while we were moving locations quite a bit, and for the first five years or so it worked without a problem. The rubber seal did eventually "go", and at this price it wasn't worth repairing. However, we've kept it going for another year by just using an industrial grade sealant. Overall, I think this is money well spent
Simple, works

Only had this machine for 2 years

Only had this machine for 2 years and 5 mths and it has blown the motor, a very expensive repair. We are a couple with low laundry needs, so the machine is not heavily used. F&P have no compassion in regards their product, that is, stuff you mate, it's your problem. Never again will we buy a F&P product.
Cheap and easy to run
Bad customer service and short life span

Good

Was very happy with the quality of the wash - we wash nappies, so this is important - the options available including extra rinse and prewash allow you to tailor the cycle to suit the load you are washing. The time delay function is great as it lets you set the cycle to be ready to hang out when you get home or first thing in the morning. The machine also does not shake the walls down like our previous westinghouse!
Delayed wash, digital time display, number of options and quality of wash - we wash nappies, so this is impornant.
None, working smoothly after 6 months of family loads and nappies.

The machine is great, very efficient, the only problem is, its so loud when its in spin, I often have to close the laundry door its so loud, it sounds like an jet winding up to take off
Everything about this machine is brilliant
the noise when its spinning

Good

OK, but I would choose a more reliable brand in the future. Spin speed is excellent for the price. Electronics is what lets this machine down. Why can't manufacturers make those mechanical dial controlled machines of the past which were super reliable?
1200rpm max. spin speed, water conservation, fabric sensing to adjust water usage and wash time.
Noisy during wash (noiser than my previous LG front load washer). The bottom plastic cover has deteriorated over time. After 23 months of use, I have had an "electronic fault" whereby the washer did not spin.

Terrible

Excellent

I have recently bought this item and am extremely happy with it! As I mentioned in the cons, the instruction manual is next to useless, but it is not too hard to work it all out for yourself. It is still early days, but I opted for the extended 5 year warrenty just in case...

If you are in the market for a front loader, I would highly recommend this one, as it has loads of features and settings and F&P are a somewhat reputable brand - I have owned a F&P toploader before and was happy with that too!
Digital display, delay start, quick wash cycle
Instruction manual is useless
