It simply just works fine and cleans thoroughly. This washing machine don't produce lots of noise, quite silent actually, and the vibration is also minimum. It has various programs and settings but mostly I put it in Everyday mode around 1 hour. Although the timer sometimes is not really accurate, e.g. 5 minutes may take longer than 5 minutes. But overall, great washing machine with nice timer sound as well.
I was sick of built to break cheap washing machines and decided to go quality. No regrets at all, this machine does everything very well, I am so happy with my purchase. Delivery man set it all up and showed me how to use everything and took the old one away. The only issue I have is keeping the the rubber seal around the door clean but just have to keep on top of it. Great load capacity and cycle selections. Quiet and efficient. I would highly recommend. Takes great care of our clothes even the delicates.
Purchased in January 2019.
Waste of money
Dirt, Lint etc from clothing ends up in seals. Lint catcher doesn't "catch anything at all. It's also placed at the bottom, front, right hand side of machine. You are required to "unplug" a small hose to get to the filter. This hose, is very low to the floor. It pours water from it and there is no way of catching it except for using towels!
The machine has also started to make very loud spinning noises. It was very quiet at first but not any longer.
I had top loaders before this and will definitely be going back to them!
Pleased With This Washer
This is a our first Fisher and Paykel front loader. After many reliable years with their top loaders, we though we would use them for a front loader. Water efficiency was up the top of our list and this machine is very good in that dept. It does a super job of making the clothes feel very clean and spins up so fast that they barely need drying when done. We are hoping for a long life from this but so very, very good indeed.
Cleans well and a quiet machine so can have on at night time without too much trouble. I wish I had of bought the one which you can stop and add items into For only about $60 more which would have Been so much easier in hindsight. But a good machine none the less
Best washing machine I've ever had!
Suitable size for our family size of four (two adults, two children). Much quieter than our previous top loader Fisher Paykel machine. I use the quick cycle for a smaller load of less dirty clothes, the everyday cycle for longer wash of dirtier clothes and delicate cycle for delicate office clothes. Haven't have to use the heavy cycle and the timing function. The machine washes and rinses our clothes thoroughly without wearing them out in comparison to the top loader. Water-saving too!
Strong and reliable
Bought this washing machine three years ago from Good Guys still going very well. Had a compact size with various washing cycles. There is an option with ironing function, but it doesn't work a lone, means you need to use the whole cycle and the garments will come out somehow ironed. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it.
Works well but not a quality built machine
It cleans and rinses really well . Was quite when new . After three months technicians had to change shock absorbers because they worn out pretty quickly . Just had him out today a few months after . Same problem . Shockers need replacing again . Great service technician . Build quality isn't great . I am also a service technician
Well spend monies on this machine
It does every mode selected to perfection. The washing machine is very quiet, doesn't vibrate or shake while in process operation providing you follow the installation procedure correctly. Easy to program, after completion of washing cycle it does give notice. Very easy to clean, easy to operate. The washing is clean, not damaged as the top loader doe especially with the screw in centre In conclusion,a well spend monies on this machine.
Questions & Answers
Our machine is only a year old and has a terrible smell. I always leave the door open and regularly do the drum cleans. It has a musty/stagnant water smell and it’s gross.
I would like to know the water consumption of each setting of this machine. I cannot seem to find this information in the online manuals.
varies depending on cycle selected and quantity and type of clothes.
Towels need a lot more water to wash than sheets, cotton shirts.
The sensor in the machine will determine the optimum qty of water for each wash.
