Worst dryer ever- don’t waste your money

Thumps the sheets into a bundle and doesn’t dry. I have tried to seperate the sheets, straight back into a big round ball wrinkled and not dry!! Show details

Started out great

Started out well. Not too noisy and dried clothes well. Used a couple of times a week but started to put black marks on light coloured fabric. Now, it simply will not start. The electrical panel seems to have frozen. Show details

Keep looking at other dryers!

I have been using this machine for approx 6 weeks and already the Start/Pause buttons, which are the most used ones, are starting to wear off. I will have to put tape over them before they wear through. Also, the auto sensor program: you have to keep an eye on what you toss in. Some items are still damp, whilst others are bone dry. A learning curve with that program. The timer program starts at 30 mins and goes up in 30 min increments to 2 hours 30. If you are using it for that long you have a serious problem! Overall I wouldnt recommend this particular machine and I went by the reviews on Appliances Online website, too! Bought to replace a reconditioned 34 year old dryer only problem was the door was cracked. Kinda miss it! Show details

It is terrible for planning

The dryer goes in ONE direction for far too long. When washing sheets or similar, they end up balled and banging around. I have to unravel multiple times per cycle. If I am out, the sheets will need REdrying. There is no conventional timer setting like 120 or 60 etc. It's based on the level of dry - who thought there were more levels of dry than just dry. Either way, I am unsure how it measures this and have no way to know how long it will take. I wish I bought a different machine.

Poor quality

My last F&P dryer went for more than 25yrs without a hitch. Finally broke down (starter capacitor) Bought new one which lasted 5 weeks before fan problem - rubbing on housing & min. 10 days for repair tech to come look at it. PP service. Don’t make ‘‘em like they used to. Show details

Lasted 5 years without a problem

Bought new from the good guys in 2017 and it has gone through 3 house moves and has now stopped drying the clothes due to what I believe is the thermostat. Overall I’m surprised it’s lasted this long compared to how long appliances last these days so I thought I would leave a review. I haven’t had it serviced or anything since I got it and it hasn’t malfunctioned in any way and I have used it constantly. I might just buy the same one again for my next dryer! Show details

Buttons on clothes, Cords get caught between dryer plastic wall edging and drum

Small buttons on shirts, cord on shorts get caught between drum edge and plastic trim on dryer wall. Only way to remove is to break them off/cut. Leaving loose pieces behind drum. Small items, ie socks, cloths etc go into lint filter and need rewashing as they are fluffy. Cannot change setting once dryer has started ie. temp. Need to power off and start again. I wish I had not upgraded my old F & P. Old model built differently internally and way better. If only I could return it and get my old dryer back.  Show details

Damages clothes

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.
