This machine is literally a life saver! Cleans and rinses my clothes absolutely perfect.
It doesn’t wear out any clothes at all, this machine is really quiet and can hardly hear it even at night time.
My favourite feature is how you can set a setting to your favourite meaning you can just turn the machine on and click “ favourites “ then start and it knows what you want.
I LOVE THIS MACHINE
Wow ! I never thought I would enjoy wash day so much as I do now.
This washing machine is a dream and it is so quite you don't know it is on and cleans the clothes really well.
Some times with my old Simpson, I would have to re wash the clothes a second time to get them clean.
I have had this machine for 7 months now and everything is A1.
Great value large washer!
After our old 7.5kg F&P finally died, it was a no-brainer to get another, only bigger to accommodate the family. The new machine is quiet, fast and exceedingly simple to operate. It always gives good results and washes quietly. I love the simple buttons to operate it and the fact that I can use the agitator from my old machine as a spare part is a bonus, although hopefully I'll never need it. Surprisingly light for a large machine, but still feels reasonably well made for the price. It also never seems to go off balance when on spin and I like being able to throw in a couple of extra items mid-wash - something you can't do with a front loader!
This was our first washing machine we bought with our own savings and will never change!! This wash smart edition is truly helpful and hasn’t given us a unwashed item back since we bought it two years ago! On a rare occurance the machine will tell us to reload the towels if they are too heavy on one side but other than that it’s a perfect machine
Best machine ever
Got this machine to replace the LG 9.5kg no agitator we had for 7months and what a disaster that machine was.
This machine is so much better and quicker.
Its very quiet
Can't fault it so far.
Very well balanced with hardly any movement.
We only had a 7mm gap each side and it still works well even though they they recommend a 20mm gap each side.
Would definitely recommend.
This is our third Fisher & Paykel over the yearsa
We have 2 of these machines
We originally bought a 8.5kg machine for our holiday house and were really impressed with it. When our old Hoover packed up after 21 years we decided to buy the 10kg version for home. It easily manages the amount of washing we get in a family of 5. I like the ability to delay the wash and put it on the night so that I can hang the clothes out in the morning before I go to work. Both machines are simple to use and are relatively quiet. I also like the function which tells me how long the wash has remaining. The clothes come out clean and well spun. Having 2 machines speaks volumes for my recommendation.
Very happy with this machine.... To start with it looks good, you can set your wash to what you want...The only downside, I like warm water to wash in, we are on the land, but it puts some hot in to dissolve washing liguid, then cold.... It washes clean and you can spin to the desired result..

Very economical washing machine so far and has been easy to use and was on a good sale price. Can only hear it when one is near the laundry room and is very quick and efficient. Am quite happy with the purchase so far and did visit quite a few stores before settling on this make and model.
Would don't buy any other!
This is a great machine. From small loads to very large, this machine weighs the load and adjusts as required and it cleans well. I have never had to rewash anything. If a load is out of balance (eg towels), the machine adjusts water level and moves the load around until it is balanced correctly. It will try to balance the load itself for approx five minutes, if it is unable to, it beeps to alert you. Great feature! Cleans a queen bed doona beautifully. Spin cycle is great, gets rid of most of the water making drying time less. The timer is g...reat as you know exactly how long each load will take. Also has delay function. washing powder usage is less than other machines, cleaning quality remains high. Really pretty quiet for a washing machine. Teenagers watch TV Iin the next room with laundry door open and have never complained or closed the laundry door! Fave feature is the beeps when machine has finished it's load. The only issue I can see for small homes is that it is a large machine. Fits great in my laundry but smaller homes might want to measure before purchase. Also great value for money, I've never had a problem with it, (5yrs old) and I do 2-3 loads per day!
its good size washing machine for 4 members of family
I use to have front loader machine and its brokes and bought this new one top loader machine , The main benifits of this machine is you can put more clothes then front loader machine with same size capacity. Never tangle the clothes, smooth running, diffrent wash cycle suits your needs also best in spinning
Brilliant. Bought a few weeks ago to replace my 20 year old F&P no trouble machine. I bought it so I could was my horse coats duvets etc without overloading. It is easy to use and I love the way it is similar to old machine. Great design of top of machine so dirt is easy to wipe out. It is so quiet, even with a full load that I have to keep checking to see if it is working. Saved me heaps of time and power as I can wash all the sheets, duvet covers in one go. I would recommend the large model over the smaller one as you never know what you will need to wash.
Yes...Big Washing Capacity
Bought this bad boy because our little LG Front Loader finally died after 8 years. Good bye my little friend!!
We chose a top loader because we are a tall family of 4, and let's face it, front loaders are for younger, short people that have good knees, and
good backs. We have called the Fisher and Paykel WashSmart the BOSS..... for a good reason. The BOSS has a 10kg capacity, it lets me load it to the max, 1 load in the BOSS = 3 loads in our old LG. I can manually select the water level which I like. The 30 minute wash cycle is all I need. ...
Giving F&P one last go
after the disappointment of not being able to buy the same machine that served us well for 14 years we had to choose between three different models that were essentially the same bar a few extra washing functions. quite frankly the machine has 6 different cycles with a lot of variations with in each why you would want is just beyond me. it's confusing enough. It also has a smart mode so you don't have to set any thing which is great.
this was the least expensive of the machines but I wouldn't pay another $600 to the top of the range when it...'s essentially the same machine. The installation was easy though we have a slightly sloping floor in the laundry and the adjustment in the legs were not long enough to level it perfectly so it's tilting forward a touch. It has an install test mode which I like as it tells you if you installed anything wrong. as it happened I mixed the hot and cold hoses because it was the reverse to our old machine and it's not clear on the this machine with no contrast between the H & C symbols and the rear panel but the install test mode picked this up, tick good feature. The machine feels more fragile than the older one it replaced. When moving it the sides flexed a lot. running the machine it seems a lot quieter but I expect as they age they get noisier so comparing it to a 14 year old machine may not be a fair comparison.
Best washing machine I have ever owned!
All clothes are cleaned very well. My husbands work clothes and very dirty kids clothes all come out clean. I can even put the dark and light clothes in together and they come out clean and not covered in fluff. I would definitely recommend this washing machine to anyone who is looking at buying a new machine.
so much room!
love this washing machine! It's HUGE!! just the 2 of us at home, but my boyfriend works in a dirty and dusty environment and our old front loader just wasn;t getting the clothes clean. The first wash in this new one was amazing. Delayed on/timer is a life saver. It's a quiet machine, especially with spinning. Lots of options depending on what load you are doing. Eco friendly settings too
Cleans Very well. Had this washer for 5 years doing non stop washing at caravan park. Never had one problem. Have another park now and will replace terrible MAYTAG washers with either Fisher & Paykel or Speed Queen.
Cant recommend these machines highly enough.
No Belts...No gearboxes... Direct drive motors are wonderful.
If only more people knew about these everyone would have one.
I am almost 74 still caring for children & have used many brands of washing machines throughout my lifetime .This washing machine would be by far the best l have used it holds great capacity doesnot tangle clothes is quiet & washes to perfection the only drawback is it diesent hang out the clothes .
The love I have for my new washing machine
As a family of 7 it gets a run for it's money. It is quiet, small, and has a range of different wash cycles.You can add more washing in after you have turned it on when you have found more washing in one of the kids rooms. It is perfect!
Excellent washing machine
Cleans clothes very well, runs quietly.
Only thing it doesn't do is continue to beep when the wash has finished. Have looked up if this can be programmed but can't find any instructions. Our old model continued to beep until lid was opened. So we have had to do a couple of washes again as we have forgot that the wash has finished and we have gone out and come home to smelly clothes
Big enough for QB quilts!
After buying a front loader washing machine (different brand) and having a very poor experience, I decided to go back to Fisher & Paykal. Definitely a great choice!
I'd previously had a second hand small 5kg Fisher & Paykal top loader, which lasted me 7 years. I gave it to my mother when I moved interstate, and it is still going strong.
I have found that laundry powder doesn't dissolve well in my 10kg top loader on a cold cycle, which isn't a big deal as my clothes are mostly washed in cold or warm water with eco friendly laundry liquid....My clothes come out clean and smelling fresh every time! And the fast spin cycle leaves the clothes very close to dry, meaning less time waiting for my clothes to dry on the line. The noise is minimal and able to be blocked out with general household sounds (the TV, children playing, radio, etc...).
This machine was a great buy. It is so quiet that you think that it is not on. My wife also likes it because its features are so simple to use as she hates appliances with to many gadgets we even showed our kids how easy it is to use. We have only had it for a few weeks but everything about this machine is excellent. Our clothes come out nice & clean and has no trouble handling our queen size sheets & doona covers. We would recommend this machine-10 out of 10.
Best machine I have ever owned.I actually look forward to getting up & doing the washing,even asking everyone if they have any washing for me to do!!It washes beautifully on all cycles & the clothes come out fresh & clean,from delicates to towels.So much fits into this perfect workhorse.It has many great features such as auto programming & water levels,or adjust to suit your needs.It is simply the best,better than all the rest.

new but realy love it
I have just purchased this machine after the Simpson I had was unrepairable after around 5 years, (never again a Simpson) the machine is quite easy to use and hopefully reliable over the long term, so far I am very happy, the controls are easy to use, a very nice touch it to have the lid loaded with a spring so that it closes slowly and does just drop, I believe that this washing machine is built throughout with the same thought.
Excellent customer service
Recently replaced the control panel in my washing machine. Called Fisher and Paykel Customer service on Sunday 8 January at 5.30pm..to organise a service. Whilst details were taken over the phone received email re call out scheduled for Monday 9 January between 12pm - 5pm with a fee of $145 + parts.
Serviceman arrived at 1pm replaced control panel and reduced the call out fee. Replacement of control panel cost $94...
Received email from Fisher and paykel confirming service...Well done Fisher and Paykel for your efficient customer service both on the phone and the serviceman.
Love this machine!
Had this for almost 3 months. Do usually 1 load per day. Love the auto water level and the delay start function. Cleans clothes well. Can fit entire queen sheets, mattress protector and doona cover in all at once. Quiet machine. Great options. Don't know what the other reviews are about, i can't fault this machine.
