I am constantly getting very small holes in clothing especially linen and fine cottons from mens shirts to bed covers

published

When ironing i would see very small areas of broken thread I looked into it and thought it was coming from the machine as it uses little water causing the garment to be under the agitator against the blades. I had the agitator changed but it’s still happening

Constant need of repairing....

published

Terrible washing machine. Bought 2 years ago. Had to call Fisher & Paykel service for repeated repairs. This is now the 7th. Springs keep rusting, breaking and squeaking. Lid cracks as a result of it. Door does not lock properly after a while, design fault as a tech had to cut and modify a piece now. Now the "suspension" is broken and cannot spin.

Disappointing, not the reliability of older F & P washers

published

After 4 & half years the rinse cycle always rumbles the machine out of balance. So frustrating, the machine is level and clothes are not out of balance. Of course out of warranty and calling a repair person has its expensive issue. Planning to try and replace rods diy. Online parts for rods is $100. Hope it’s worth it. Our last F &P washer lasted 15years. What is going on with this company. Sorry! will never buy another F & P

Purchased at JB Hifi Home.

If I could give it zero , I would.

published

This machine has a the bane of my existence since I bought it. It has ruined all my clothes and chews everything.
It is always out of balance , and it actually leaves the clothes filthy after a wash. Washing anything large or bulky is a no no. they come out disgusting, even after completing a bowl clean. Makes no difference. This machine should be recalled and discontinued.

Avoid if unfinished cycles and endless beeping annoys you

published

The out of balance issue is outrageous. Our 3 year old machine has not worked properly for 6 months. Replacing suspension rods after 3 years should be a product recall especially as constant beeping may cause you to pour fuel on it and set alight. F&P response is to send a technician because it is out of warranty. This is a major failure and clearly well known at this point, no need for a technician just send parts. 10 minutes to replace with a phillips no 2 screwdriver, not paying $150 to fix a near new machine. Our previous F&P machine was 16 years old and $50 for new main seal and bearing made it good as new. Should never have sold it. Any wonder landfill sites are full of these pieces of junk. Never again.

Purchased in for $850.

30 years of using fisher and paykel

published

Well this reminds me of using my mothers twin tub. Having been using your brand for over 30 years this unit destroys fabrics and towels. Without the agitator the cloths come out tangled into a ball and throws the machine off balance with every wash no matter how I put the cloths in. I am using more detergent as the cloths are not coming out clean as with my old 8kg machine.
You are set with the programming in many cases preventing changing water levels etc, yes you can use the bulk program but still not allowing me to change to suit the load.
I am about to get my old machine repaired and replace this new machine.
Very dissatisfied.

Dont buy

published

Clothes still come out soaking wet. Often have to put spin cycle on after a load of washing finishes.
Water smells as it comes out cold section.. high efficiency off is not enough water to wash large load or bulky items and u can't change water level to a level you want. Wouldn't even sell this 2nd hand to someone.

Great pity Fisher & Paykel isnt a name you can rely on anymore.

published

What do Fisher & Paykel have to say about all the terrible reviews re the Series 7 top load machine. I've always been a F&P fan but as i was about to purchase a new machine the terrible reviews have stopped me going ahead. Any recommendations on a another Top Load that works reliably, washes the clothes well.

F&P. Stop the crap getting into the design department and listen to the 'grey hairs'. Experience DOES count.
Disappointed you have ruined a great name.

Purchased many FP products over the years but this is the worst machine ever. Have had to have it repaired 3 times in 2 years and it still bangs as it washes.

Absolute piece of crap Seriously DO NOT PURCHASE ONE

published

Obviously no quality control during manufacture.
Machine would leave clothes dirtier than when they went in.
Constantly going out of Balance
Decided to replace the suspension rods. only to discover that one of the screw retaining brackets had not been installed during manufacture and there was only one retaining spring how could it possibly centre the bowl no wonder there are problems.

It’s a Lemon!

published

If you like washing without water, seriously, well this washing machine is for all the grubby people in the world. I want my money back or it replaced. I am ready to email A Current Affair. I purchased this from The Good Guys at Penrith, NSW. I hand wash with buckets throughout my home. My mother takes all my bigger items to her house for me. This machine cost me the bomb! What idiot passed this washing machine? Obviously someone who doesn’t use it, because it is un usable. No water, bangs around loudly and stops. No one told me about the no water issue for starters from The Good Guys. I asked for a big washing machine because I have a family of 6 and wash weekly for a childcare centre. You can imagine how that’s going.
