Reliable washing machine

published

I bought this machine specifically for its quick wash function which is only 30 minutes. Its a great time saver and washes well. Easy to use dial for selecting the program want. I especially like the drum clean function which washes the machine through as super hot cycle. Great value for money and simple to operate. Would definitely buy and fisher and paykel washing machine in the future, this one hasn't let me down yet.

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $750.

Very Happy With this machine

published

The washing machine has a lot of features to make your clothes clean and look great. The machine is not harsh on the clothes items provided you separate the clothes and choose the appropriate cycle. It has a 15minute and 30-minute option, and an everyday option which I use a lot for 1 hour, steam refresh for shirts, doona covers not a problem, the machine is so quiet on all spin dry cycles and no hopping around the laundry. I have had this machine for nearly 2 years and I'm very pleased, it was a good price.

Total satisfaction.

published

Fisher and PayPal have continued there quality workmanship with this model. I speak with experience having had one for fifteen years now and still working well. The controls are simple to understand and easy to apply. If you are a bit on the lazy side and throw all types of clothes in it will still handle it ok. The machine will do delicates without any damage to clothes. At the end of the wash the clothes are almost dry.

Washing machine Review

published

This machine handles every thing from dooner covers, blankets, work clothes, along with all wool jumpers, so there really is great versatility with this machine. The spinning cycle is absolutely fantastic and if required can be ran as many times as you like, which is great for blankets.

Purchased in for $999.

This is a great machine! Never had any issues! Washes my clothes really well! Plenty of features and controls easy to use. I use the 30 minute wash cycle and if want something cleaned super well I pick a longer setting.

Not so quick nor smart

published

Got mine 4 years ago and wouldn’t recommend washing towels or bedsheets unsupervised. It will try to balance the weight by slowly spinning. Instead of stopping and provide an error code after a few tries like my previous F&P top loader does, it just rebalances until you manually stop it! Few times when I set the timer , it was still revaluing after a couple of hours!
The section for softener fills up with water or sometimes still left with 1/2 the softener after the wash.
Would change back to top loader once this one dies.

Disappointing Washing Machine - lasted 5 yrs

published

we are a family of 3 , machine used 3 times a week
started off well for a couple of years, quiet and did the job
after 3 years started getting noiser
after 5 years , lights missing of display and not switching between wash and spin cycles.. you have to stop and restart spin and rinse cycle manually
would expect better than 5 years from a mid range machine
too expensive to repair, won't buy F and P again.

Better off washing by hand than using this deserves no stars

published

I've never believed front loaders clean clothes better than top loaders but have moved to tank water so thought I'd give one a go to save water. Absolute joke. NOTHING comes out clean although I am only using everyday cycle because 2+hrs for cotton cycle is ridiculous. Any water savings would be wiped out by extra power usage. I'm only washing normal clothes not really dirty stuff so as soon as house renovations are finished this piece of junk will be replaced by a top loader that may use more water but at least clothes come out clean.

Noisy while working and failed after 5 years

published

From the start this machine vibrated horrendously in use, just washing the family clothes. It used to travel across the floor. I had to brace the underfloor to cut down on the vibration. After 5 years, the main bearing gave up. The repair tech said it wasn't worth replacing the bearing as the machines are too hard to pull apart and by the time we had covered his labour costs, we'd have paid for a new machine. So we had to buy a new machine (Bosch this time)

Rusted out after two years

published

Extremely disappointed with this machine. It's only three years old and has serious rust and metal peeling issues on one side. Sitting beside a wall, we didn't notice until we were moving house and now we've been told it's outside the two year warranty. I would expect a washing machine to last more than two or three years. Feel like they should last ten! Especially at this price point. Very poor build quality.

The load is too heavy for the machine to spin, and the load is unevenly spread over the drum. You have probably washed a blanket or duvet

Hi washing Liquid OR powder goes on left hand side, softener goes in the middle. Use as little of these products as possible as per the instructions.
