Great small size machine
Machine is quiet and spins really well. This is my second Fisher Paykel slightly larger and this one has an eco feature. First one lasted 20yrs. Really happy with this machine.
Tangles and gets off balance on regular basis
Limited internal space due to large agitator. One queen size quilt cover is maximum load and this will tangle EVERY time and the machine will get off balance EVERY time. It also gets off balance if I wash towels. I have played around with load size so as not to overload, but problem remains. I need to stand by the machine EVERY spin cycle to rectify problems. For other loads, anything like a long skirt or trousers, will get tangled in the agitator.
I have had this machine for 2 years and while it is still operating without any mechanical issues, I have just bought a cheap washing machine to replace it. Washing is now considerably easier! Perhaps if you only need to wash single sheets and small towels it would be fine.
Moving with the times
Still apply the old-fashioned way of sorting clothes into darks and whites.
This machine in particular is good in that the favourite option is automatic. This means that the water fills in such a way that you are not over using water by the amount of water you require. The machine fills just enough to thoroughly wash and rinse the clothes. This then also reduces the cycle times of your wash..
Having mentioned this, you also have the option to use the different cycles. For example choosing the delicate option, it really is a more gentle wash.
I like the size of this machine because it is big enough to wash your bigger items like bedspreads, blankets etc.

Quiet and reliable
I have been using my washing machine for over a year now, and I absolutely love it.
My previous washing machine was a noisy beast; this one is so quiet that I often forget it's on. It just gives a few beeps when it is done and that is pretty much it.
The 6kg size is perfect for our family of 3; it handles everything from delicates to soiled clothes. It's super straight forward to use and finishes the cycles quickly. I'd researched my options before purchasing and had seen a lot of good reviews for this machine. I feel it has definitely lived up to that feedback - it's been used at least once a day for a good 15 months without any issues whatsoever.
You can't go wrong buying this one!
I love this. I have had previous issues with machines quickly showing mold regardless of of airing them and cleaning them as per the instructions. I have had no such problems with this machine. I love how quiet it is when washing and how it doesn't crease my clothes as much as other machines
Damage pillows and water leak
Not very happy as we chucked in some small pillows in cases and they split right open even on delicate wash! We also after this had water leaking from somewhere in the back. As its in warranty were just waiting for someone to pick it up and have gotten it swapped for a different model but by the same make
It is a quiet machine and it clean well.The clothes does not tangle after washing and the spin cycle take out most of the water.
A good feature is it tells you how long it will before the washing ends.
And the price on the machine was reasonable.
I love this washing machine and would never go with another brand again. It does tend to go off balance with a heavy load but every machine I've had does that. I did need the extended warranty but the service guy came out so quickly and fixed it with ease. No problems since
Love this machine
Good washing machine for an apartment for 2 users. It does have the lint problem but that 's common for all F&P machines. Found out the hard way that softener does not go well with the eco cycle as my clothes still came out with softener. Panel functions were flexible enough. I did find it pricey for a small machine but I guess I'm paying for the brand.
No Regrets - a reliable machine
I have had this machine for 2 years and it has not skipped a beat. It does not have all of the additional features that the next model up has but this might be why it is so reliable, ie less to go wrong. Also, I have found that I can still do everything that the next model does if I want to but just in a more manual way. eg, it may not have a soak function but you can of course just pause it to soak. The spin is really good and clothes come out nearly dry. Clothes do not get tangled. The lint removal is automatic and if I have a very linty load..., I occasionally run the wash cycle with no clothes to clear it, but it is very seldom. Also, we are on tank water, and a solar plus hydro electric system and we have had no problems at all with this machine. I recommended it to my mother in law who has also recently bought one. I am very glad that I bought this machine.
The Washing machine actually built to last.
Washes the clothes well even in cold water. Almost drip dry when I remove the clothes. A real workhorse machine that can handle the capacity. You have to realize the direct drive motor in this machine and no need to run a gearbox is what makes Fisher & Paykel great.
I love this machine! Has been amazing from day one. My partner is a farmer so constantly washing muddy, greasy, dirty clothes and coming out clean every time. Can be a bit on the louder side but we have a
Large laundry that can echo. Love that you can pause for it to start in so many hours. Love it’s
This machine is a quiet machine that doesn’t make much noise, appears to not move around a lot. Does not wear out clothes, favourite thing about the machine is that the washing powder spreads through the machine and doesn’t stick to clothing and leave powder marks. The water ratio is not the best
Nice little unit
Six weeks, and does the job.
I purchased the extended warranty as I have an existing electronic control board memory.
It is quick and quiet.
I bought it, (in a hurry), after using this site to decide what machine to purchase. My old trusty F&P started leaking around water pump, (couldn't be bothered fixing it).
I have read some reviews about water splashing up on the high water setting. I checked this by opening up the lid and sticking my head in while the machine is washing. I saw a few little drops onto the angled side. I solved this by pulling my head out and closing the lid.
I live in NZ. I ordered online. When it was in store, (three days, man), I picked it up.
One year on, still good, still the same. No problems at all.
Reliable Little Gem
This wasn't what i expected, when i washed the childrens play clothes. They came out clean & fresh no messy residue .Which ive had issues with other brands. Hard working machine well worth it's weight in washing power! The machine wasnt to loud which is a issue for me as laundry room near children's bedroom. Can rely on Fisher &Paykel!
Easy and Quite
This machine is very easy to install being a light model.The cleaning phases are easy to manouvre as you run through your particular wash cycle.The final result finishes with the cloths being nicely cleaned and thre rinse cycle also does a nice job extracting the water.Our machine is whisper quite,although it is situated in a closed off laundry.The Eco Rinse and wool cycles would be my favourite features.
My mum had a 6kg washer that broke down after 15 years. SO I bought her this replacement. When it arrived, the drum looked half the size of her old one. It gets good reviews, but it is way to small to wash enough stuff, so we ended up changing it. This is not for someone who washes their sheets and towels frequently
Love my washing machine
Only purchased my fisher and Parker machine 3 weeks ago and have found it to be super quite even during the spin cycle. Have found that my washing is coming out cleaner and removes more stains. The rinse cycle is perfect, doesn't tangle clothes around the agitatior. The settings are easy to use and easy to understand. Cycles are short with the option to increase the washing time.
Excellent results - good value
We replaced our 15 year old 10kg Fisher & Paykel after we gave it to someone that had several kids. The 6kg model is more suitable in size for our needs now and is just a easy to use as its functions are the same, and since it has similar workings so we expect it will last as well.
It washes well
Is economic with water
It is hard to unbalance loads
It noiser than many front loaders - but it's so much faster.
Note: we reset the spin rate down from 1000rpm to 750 as we've found that is more than enough and is quiter too.
Well made reliable and a good size for average sized laundry areas. Since getting around 12 years of use from the previous F and P machine I decided to upsize to this model.
The auto everything function does a great job of washing clothes and has options for delicates reducing the speed of the impeller blades so as not to damage clothing articles.
Heavy duty mode seems to work very well with the appropriate quality powder and additives to remove grease/oil stains from my overalls.
Very happy with this model and easy to set up level with adjustable feet for flooring uneveness.
A great product you will be satisfied with for many years.
Questions & Answers
Can the F& P MW 60 do cold only washing?
Hi, we got our new MW60 yesterday and I am going crazy trying to figure out how to do just a cold wash. Seems that you can't change the temp setting on this one (warm wash seems to be it's thing) and that is upsetting as we only ever used cold wash with our other smart drive that was 18yrs old. Can anyone help with my dilemma.
Hi,my F/P quicksmart which is 2,5 yers old never had a problem, just now suddenly as I was going to startmy usual wasing after turning it on and trying to set it sarted beeping and can't do any programming, not letting change just a few lights on and beeping even after i turn it off at the power point because can't even turn off on the machine itself, it goes on for about 10sec than it stops beeping and ....any idea what can be done? Part from calling a service man.... Thank you
It is hard to diagnose the problem without seeing it could be the top board were you turn it on .which is about 80$ depending were you live if in Australia.the other thing could be the lid safety switch try tapping the lid or make sure the lid is fully closed if you lift the lid to the up position it will lift straight out and you can clean it .hopefully it's not the main board as its about 150$ for that board and if you can't do it yourself the service Guy is going to charge his labor on top of that .hope this helps
