Very disappointed with the sheet drying selection. I called out a technician after 12months as the drum was not always reversing so the sheets ended up in a tight bundle, I had to stop the dryer & unravel. After the technician replaced a part he said if it didn’t work again to put towels in with the sheets. Not done that & don’t use the dryer to dry sheets & that was the main reason I purchased this dryer.
I use the ordinary or heavy settings for towels and sheets. The washing takes a whole day otherwise. The towels alone take several hours; and the sheets have the problems you describe AND take hours. I too am super-disappointed in my drier. For me, about to replace my kitchen appliances, and a formerly loyal F & P customer, their brand is now verboten for any future purchases.
How much is a new heat pump, for this dryer model number please DH8060P1
My machine has just started making a horrible loud notice when on. It still works fine, but I need to close the door to laundry just for some peace. It is about 21 months old. Any ideas?
What is the matching washer for this dryer? FP customer service are horrendous. Not only do they have no clue what they are doing but think this is a technical matter. Seriously no one in technical support even answers calls.
Does the dryer stop automatically when it been set on everyday cycle? I did an everyday cycle and towel cycle, both were still going after 2-3 hours. I had to manually stop the dryer and find out that all the clothes and towels are already completely dry. But why the dryer does not stop itself even when all the contents are totally dry? we talking about going on long long time.
you might find that you've got the 'wrinkle free' button on. It is basically giving everything a shuffle to make sure nothing settles and creases. If this button is in the 'on' position, turn it off and you should find it fixes your issue. The button is next to the Dry Temp buttons.
We bought a new Fisher & Paykel washing machine 20 years ago. We had 3 power boards replaced while under warranty (within 3 years) the 4th time the power board needed replacing when it was out of warranty we bought a new washing machine. At the time we were told Fisher & Paykel washing machines do not suit a humid/tropical environment such as Cairns where we live. Has Fisher & Paykel's technology changed in the last 20 years to make them more resilient/suitable to a tropical environment? I have just purchased Model *WH7560J3 but hasn't been picked up yet so most probably would get a credit towards a different washing machine. Any feedback is welcome!!
If you use a softener do the clothes come out with its sent as my Miele took away the smell?
Dryer was working fine and all of a sudden it would not dry clothes.Replaced heater,thermostat and heater sensor with new parts.Still won't dry clothes tumbler does turn,Called fisher and paykel technician would not speak to me as I am not qualified technician although I do have some knowledge in this field.was informed to look up U-tube of how to repair this machine but since it has been deleted.Now power button is on ,live current transmitted to heater,However when pressing start button power is dead from motherboard to heater.Tumbler still works fine.There's a short circuit somewhere which restricting heater from starting.This machine only has one thermostat and three sensors.I'm thinking of by-passing the humidity sensor.Thank you, waiting for reply.
Brand new dryer constantly reports H2O error and tank full. It has done 3 loads in its life. There is no water in tray, or puddle under dryer. Water tank firmly seated. I have checked hose for kinks (none), done a factory reset to no avail. No lint in trays. The hose did not drip at all when I pulled it off spigot, which I thought was odd. Where's the water draining to? I'll contact F&P but for an expensive dryer, this shouldn't be a thing.
Has anyone had this issue? Is it something I can fix?
can anyone tell me the difference between the F&P DH8060P1 & DH8060P2 condenser dryers. D
Due to limitation, I do not want to install the drain hose. I understand I need to empty the container every time it finishes. However, any chance (rare or often) I need to empty the container when I run a maximum load (i.e. 8kg)?
Empty it at the end is not a problem, but having to do it in the middle every time is a big hassle.
Thanks in advance.
higher spin speed on wash to remove excess water.
Warning: overloading (heavy) items will damage bearings - not cheap.
reduce number of items if heavy.
My question is if I empty the container at the end of every cycle, how likely do I need to empty it in the middle of the wash? Is an empty container BIG enough to go through a full load of cycle?
Is it possible to wall mount this machine using Zenith wall mount kit from Bunnings?
Hello, does this spin in both directions?
Yes, but infrequently. I suspect the reason that it reverses direction infrequently is that it uses energy to stop and change direction. In this section of the market, where they are trying to score 7 star energy rating, they can't meet 7 stars if they stop and change direction then restart. A result of this, as MANY people have mentioned, is that sheets just tumble into a tight ball, and never dry. I am stunned as F&P dryers have been in my family for years and were awesome. A dryer that has a 7 star energy rating (for clothes obviously) that just balls up sheets and never dries them, is a farce in my opinion. Not sure if all heat pump dryers have the same issue, but I suspect they might..
What is the best cycle to use to get the clothes to come out hot so I can fold the creases away? Bought this yesterday and tried several but they come out dry but not hot.
Wondering what error code 32 is in fisher & paykel dh8060p please?
