    It makes my life easy. I like it!

    published

    I like a washing machine with an agitator compared to the one without. I set and forget this model so I really like it.I don't have to keep changing the settings. It has a timer so I know when the wash is going to finish. It has a pause button in case you need to add more clothes.The only thing I don't like is, it doesn't collect the lint or it doesn't have a lint bag so sometimes the lint are left on the clothes specially the blacks. Overall, I am very happy with it coz it makes my life easy.

    Computer died after 3 years, just out of warranty

    published

    Worked okay for 3 years. Then the computer died. Terrible. Never buy another Fisher Paykel product again. I Rang the call centre. Service fee will be about $150 and the new computer part over $100. Not sure it's worth having it fixed as high probability of something else failing after. Lousy quality product.

    I have owned this washer for just on 3 years it has been faultless. I was just reading some of the reviews on it and am surprised at some of the negativity. I wash large loads daily and sometimes multiple loads, to date no issues, in fact friends have used my machine and gone and purchased their own straight away. to my knowledge they haven't had issues either. Great machine would buy again along with any other Fisher & Paykel products.

    Terrible washing machine

    published

    Purchased my F&P in 2012 from Good Guys who guaranteed me that it was a top quality machine, what a waste of money! The agitator wings snapped within 4 months so it got replaced under warranty, yet again within 12 months the crappy plastic agitator broke, clothes are being streaked with lint and soap scum, I hate the bloody thing.

    Update 2016 - the electronic panel has now gone!

    CRAP!

    published

    Bought this machine just 2.5years ago. Usually use the machine once a week, twice a week at the most. There is only 2 of us, no children and we work in the office. Our clothes were hardly heavily soiled. This F&P washing machine is over rated, so called 'smart'. Hardly the case, died on us suddenly! Priced at more than $900 I would have expected more years out of this machine. Disappointed to find similar reviews posted here about this machine. Wished I had looked before buying. Never again F&P. Not keeping my hopes up on your customer service either. Your machine and your brand is CRAP!

    Love It!

    published

    I have had my machine for almost a month now and am loving all the functions, particularly the delay start (with numerous options for how long you want to delay) and the time remaining on the digital display. I also like being able to set certain functions such as cold water, water saver, time saver etc and that it remembers them for future washes. After reading other reviews, I am a little worried about the lint issues but have no complaints so far. Might look into the lint filter that faypa mentioned if needed.

    Excellent machine, once again F&P deliver great quality.

    published

    We've had ours for about six months now, replacing our former piece of junk 'NEC' which was on it's way out (what a terrible excuse for a washing machine). I'm not an expert on washer's, but this machine does exactly what you need it to do when it comes laundry (which isn't a big ask)

    It has automatic pre-settings for water levels and fabric types, the clothes don't tangle, it spins the heck out of them until they're almost completely dry, and it doesn't damage delicate's. I can't honestly say one bad thing about it, marvelous machine!

    Hope the new one is alright

    published

    I purchased my new F&P Fabricsmart 5 days ago from appliances online. They took old Betsy, a Hoover 920 and my trusted workhorse for 28 years. Unfortunately, the new machine only lasted 4 days due to an electronic problem. Appliances online have been great and they are delivering a replacement machine on Mon.
    I really like the size
    It stopped working
