Really happy with my choice
Really happy with my purchase. Easy to mount, easy to use, perfect size in my small laundry just disappointed that being upside down the digital display is also upside down.
Purchased in May 2021 for $503.00.
Leaves black marks on the clothes and damages them which is a repetitive issue. F&P replaced original dryer with new dryer same model, a year later same problem. Have discovered whole threads complaining about this. Manufacturers fault that reveals itself years later. Do not buy, it has ruined our clothes.
Do not buy!
Dryer rolls sheets in a tight ball which prevents it to dry and it comes out very creased! Same with clothes, bought it for the wrinkle free function but it does the opposite!

After 13 years two loads a day every day my old Fisher & Paykel dryer died going to miss the beast never let me down that was until I bought the new one today love it hope I can get the same life out of it as I did the old one great products always my first choice.

Most disappointed this dryer
Fine with small items, but sheets spin into a ball so have to keep constantly pause dryer to sort this out and only 1 sheet can be dried at a time. Also this dryer isn't very efficient at drying. I have never written a review before, but this is done out of frustration and to warn anyone considering Fisher Paykel to look elsewhere.

does not dry sheets or clothes
spins the items in all one direction so sheets just spin into a ball and it beeps to say it is finished to find the items still saturated. This happens repeatedly. doesn't even dry clothes properly. Had another brand machine for a similar price for years but went with this for the F&P name. sorry i did. not a good machine compared to others in the price range on the market. would not recommend at all. also pits lint out everywhere even when the lint filter has been emptied.

My clothes dry quicker on the line, in winter. It’s easy to use and nice and quiet, but it takes 3-4 hours to dry a load of washing! I thought it was broken when I first tried it so got the service team to come check it for a fault. Apparently it’s working as it should be. To say I’m unimpressed is an understatement.

Good simple dryer.
This drier replaced my old F & K of about 15yrs old which still performed ok but had issues with the paint work which had peeled off due to the heat in one area. This new one looks impressive and operates quieter than my old one. It's still easy to clean the filter & has simple operating dials. I hope the paintwork lasts.
It makes our life easy!
We as couple just love this dryer. It dry our clothes so fast and perfectly specially sensitive fabric with perfect condition. The consumption of electricity as rating is not that good but rest best.

Useless and not fit for purpose
Had a Fisher & Paykel 4.5kg for many years worked till it wore out
This new unit DE4560M1 is useless.
1- The small items like hankies etc get caught in filter due to the very very poor design
2 - If you want to mount off floor the bracket system is such that you can not. The bracket system and hole alignment in rear only allow upside down high wall mount.
3- The old 4.5Kg allowed the user to select amount of drying, this is now found only on larger KG models.
Summary - would never recommend, if I had kept box it would have been sent back.
I previously had a Fisher and Paykel dryer which was great. When it died I was unable to get it repaired because spare parts were no longer available. I got this dryer because I had been so happy with the last one. The new one is a piece of rubbish in comparison. The settings are not very useful because you cant set the dryer for either the time or the dampness level you want. Additionally small items like handkerchiefs get sucked into the filter and block it.

Can't complain, does what it says, no issues
We bought a Fisher & Paykel dryer after having such a good experience with a F&P washing machine, and have not had any issues whatsoever. Hard to say that it's "great" because it's really just a dryer, but as far as dryer's go, I guess it's awesome. Auto sensing is fantastic, just put clothes and push ON and not have to worry about anything until it turns itself off. The only slightly annoying thing is that socks (or other small items) sometimes get caught in the lint filter and then come out full of fluff - would've been an easy fix with an extra plastic arm preventing this from happening. Otherwise, it's great.

Great Clothes Dryer
This clothes dryer is easy to use and sensors the clothes to adjust drying times to suit. Able to hang on the wall and vent either front or rear using a panel.
Best dryer I have ever owned
Ab fab dryer, automatically switches of when it sensors the clothes are dry, it's fast efficient and quiet. I must admit I bought it because it was the biggest capacity dryer on the floor, without buying a massive, expensive fancy dryer with more dodads and dohickeys than this old lady wanted or needed, but I am extremely happy with it. Well done F & P, an awesome product @ a good price.

Good and reliable
Good and reliable dryer, it has auto-sensing which stops automatically to prevent my clothes from shrinking and stuffs. The noise level is pretty low and it doesn't produce that much water vapor, so it doesn't make the room very damp.
Starts of amazing dies to soon
The fisher & paykel dryer is an amazing dryer its quiet and dries my clothing sheets and blanckets on 1 cycle. No need to iron my delicate clothing as it comes out perfectly straight.

this perfect cant live with out
had dryer just over a 1year now very easy to operate and has,nt missed a beat does the towells perfect dont use much of the settings just leave on auto
Purchased in March 2018 at Harvey Norman.
Excellent Machine, can't fault.
Used for all types of washing, especially over the Winter months when outside drying is not possible.
Certainly handles heavy loads up to 6Kg wet weight with ease.
Variable drying modes are very useful,enabling drying of heavy duty to delicate items successfully.
Ease of cleaning of lint filter a good feature.
Make sure you have good ventilation in laundry if drying heavily wet loads, as moisture accumulates quickly unless you have the unit vented to outside.
Purchased in May 2019 for $389.00.
I brought this as I got a great deal, as this was a slight dent on top of the machine. I saved $150.00 by this slight mark. The machine is excellant and drys my sheets well. The settings are so easy to use. I used mine on a very humid Brisbane morning and it dried the sheets well. I always clean the front lint filter after each dry. I actually wash mine and leave it to dry. I also clean inside the door and the drum after each load. I have had an older F@P for years and they just keep going. Also this model dosnt overheat as well, so my small laundry dosnt get very hot from the dryer. This co knows how to make dryers.

Purchased this March 2018 as the Bosch dryer I had for 2 years stopped heating and wasn't energy efficient with the crease option making it turn every few minutes. It also didn't dry my clothes/towels. This F & P dryer is fantastic in comparison. It dries everything regardless of the load size and is simple to use.
I wouldn't be without it even though I usually only use it once a week for towels.
