Perfect Machine!

We have had this machine for a few years now and we love it. The range of functions is perfect and easy to understand and use. Towels always come out mega clean and fresh. I use the eco setting for everything. We use half as much detergent as we used to in our top loader. This is our first front loader so we did a lot of research and both sceptics, growing up on our respective mums whirlpool. I love using the top speed on the spin cycle as it halves the drying time. Heavy cycle is perfect for dirty, muddy items. Great clean for cat hair on blankets too. Drum clean function comes in handy after heavy use. Excellent results on my delicates as well (I always use wash bags for this).

Reliable washing machine

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. Show details

Very Happy With this machine

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. Show details

Total satisfaction

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

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. Show details

Great machine! Can’t live without!

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. Show details

Not so quick nor smart

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. Show details

Disappointing Washing Machine - lasted 5 yrs

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. Show details

quiet and stable

reliable , I had a top load and current front load, both work well and quiet which was a sought for when i looked for a washing machine
another good feature i like is the front door it bigger than usual washing machine, easy to put in and take out clothes
i usually wash cotton made clothes, but it does have lots other options Show details

Noisy while working and failed after 5 years

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

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. Show details

Is the Washing Machine supposed to have a liquid dispenser separate (Fits in)? I bought this machine a few months ago and they told me it takes either without changing anything. I'm feeling I'm missing a piece??
