Purchased Model WA8060P1 and have no end of problems.After the warranty ran out we had to have the logic board replaced and then six months later water starts leaking from the bottom of the appliance
We always thought Fisher Paykel was a name that could be trusted and on reflection that was a myth.
Will never go anywhere near this companies products ever again,BE WARNED from the reviews their products are not worth the exorbitant prices they charge.
Love it still after 3yrs
Many cycles. Tried all and extremely satisfied. Delicate cycle very good for a top loader. Cycle times accurate and love that I can spin one item of clothing and does not go out of balance. Use it regularly and it hasn't missed a beat. Also has a good fast spin. Love it.
Quality Machine; Very Efficient and Clever.
So quiet and easy to use. Most cycles are under 50 minutes. Clothes are clean, no lint, no tangles, and using the 1100 Spin Cycle clothes are almost dry. ECO is great for those on water restrictions or not using fabric softener. Delay start is best to capitalize off peak night electricity. Clever, the first 8 minutes of the wash cycle, water and detergent are mixed then sprayed over the clothes. The barrel is filled to set level after that time. Note; Detergent must be poured into the centre of the agitator. Tip: To soak clothes longer than the...maximum 2 hours just turn the machine off at the wall or the machine will auto drain. I manually set the water level based on the agitators 5 levels; the auto fill is a bit too conservative. The machine doesn’t have cycle advance which I miss, as changing any setting other than the water level will completely restart the cycle. Rinse cycle is a short wash then rinse of about 30minutes. Design by Kiwi’s in mid 2015 and built in Thailand (WA8060P1). This machine is quality right out of the box and the user guide should be read. Purchased May 2016. No Problems thus far. Replaced Simpson 756 Encore 7.5kg, 16 years old, noisy, 15% bigger barrel, water and power hungry. .
Quiet and great washing machine
Have had this washing machine for a few years. The stand out feature is its quietness and also a range of cool modes such as Eco power mode and duvet mode. It also senses the amount of water and the type of fabric so quite handy. No problems so far. Clothes come out clean however there may be some residue left on it depending on how dirty your clothes are. There is also the option to rinse the machine on its own but I found that to be a waste of water and energy as it doesn't do much.
Washes clothes well with no lint left on clothes. Spin cycle is very good, clothes come out nearly dry. Doesn't tangle or rip clothes. Quick and efficient, I have a family of 4, and wash most days and I find the 8kg is just right. I have used this machine since the start of January 2016. The only bad thing I found was the auto water fill does not fill the right amount in the tub, so I manually use med or high water level depending on the amount of clothes to be washed and this solves the problem without a hassle. I would recommend this machine.
Didn't work from day 1
went to use the machine the first time, dial would only go to regular. Other options wouldn't work properly either.
Technician came and ordered part. He returned to fix the machine three weeks later. Machine worked for a day. Again dial wouldn't work. Technician returned. Needs a tech expert to come and put another part in. That was two weeks ago have not been able to get a date for the repair and we are without a working washing machine.

I just bought a WA8060P model machine and it turn display and power off from the machine once washing cycle is completed. Is this normal?
