This machine has been excellent

We had this model washing machine for 9 years without incident. When the washing machine required a major service, we decided that because it had been such an excellent machine, we replaced it with the current model which like its predecessor, is excellent.

Only worked for 3 years then had errors

Very disappointed with our purchase. There are frequent detergent marks on our clothes because it doesn’t wash very well. After three years it kept beeping every load saying it was unbalanced. We tried everything and even got it serviced. It didn’t fix the problem. I would never buy this brand again! Show details

Not enough expletives to describe machine

The very worst washing machine I've ever had.Always stopping for being out of balance,cleaning cycle uses vast amount of water and you can't select your own water level. Don't buy under any circumstances. Show details

After 7 years, I'm calling it - worst machine ever

I have had this washing machine for seven years, and I cannot begin to describe how much I hate it. It constantly has out-of-balance issues and is difficult to clean and troubleshoot. The out-of-balance issues can regularly turn a normal 40-minute wash into a two-hour ordeal. Genuinely not worth it. Avoid at all costs. Show details

Bad waste of money

IT will not fill with water to a full level even on full load. it tangles and knots up the bed sheets. it tangles up my work cloths and leaves gunge marks all over them even in warm water and using the liquid detergent.
Have had many fisher & Paykel machines before until now. The water saving sensor won't put enough water in it to wash properly and without a full agitator it rolls and knots up the cloths. Don't buy. Show details

Very Disappointed

I had been so happy with my previous Fisher & Paykel washing machine, that when it stopped working after many faithful years, I did not hesitate in purchasing another one, big mistake. I should have done my research and read reviews, as this new machine is terrible. Very noisy, out of balance and problems with the water level. So disappointed, an expensive mistake. Show details

Not happy

Can hear water going in to washer then seems to drain out, on checking water nowhere near covering clothes. Told by helpline to put on heavy duty wash. Ridiculous as clothes are very lightly soiled I prefer quick wash. Clothes smell of detergent.
Have tried adding water, wetting clothes first to add weight etc. Etc.
Really not happy with this expensive product and would love a solution.
There is no setting to control water level. Show details

Can't believe they sell a washing machine WITHOUT a lint filter!!!!!!!!

I am astounded that in 2018 Fisher & Paykel are selling me a washing machine WITHOUT a lint filter!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe I have to pay almost $50 to buy the part that should come with the washing machine????????!!!!!!!!!

Otherwise I am happy with the machine. I wash a lot of dark clothing and this is just not good enough.

The machine is filling up and it sporadically beeps 3-4 times, no error code both hot and cold water is on. It doesn’t stop the machine from working - I have reset, given a super duper clean out. Any ideas?

Contact the service number in the booklet provided. Unfortunately I hate my new machine so can't give any proper advice. I don't recommend this model.
