Two months old and already not working...
Purchased new machine Nov 2019 and already stopped. All lights flashing. Key lock keeps beeping (even when power off). Cannot set to any programme. All settings flash like a machine possessed! Have to wait a week for service person to visit. (Customer Service took over an hour to answer even after 7pm). Not impressed that machine couldn't even last two months!

What a impressive looking machine
This Fisher and Paykel washer really earns its title washsmart machine ..with one step easy to follow preset options with a push of a button your ready to go. Washes are great bringing your clothes out fresh as a daisy

Washing results looks as good as new
Multi coloured wash, easy function set. Just turn the dial to set your required wash. You can even set it as your favourite. Add your detergent, close lid and off you go. Set cycle about 45 min. You can even set the spin speed. Washes clothes better than any other washer that I have had. My wash is now bright and white. This is my favourite by far.
Purchased in January 2019 at The Good Guys for $899.00.
Bought a fisher and paykel 7kg top load washer for around $750, from Harvey Norman. Only used it around 50 washs over 2 years. Now will not spin, out of balance. Whatever you do, it won't spin. It's on level ground, levelled. Even with nothing in the machine, still out of balance. Will never buy a fisher and paykel appliance again, which is disappointing as I had my last one for 12 years, that's why I bought one again. DO NOT BUY FISHER AND PAYKEL TOP LOAD WASHERS.
Lint galore and is shredding my towels
I bought this top loader after having a few front loader issues, and if I could send it back I would. I really dislike this washing machine. It has shredded my towels, no matter what cycle and the lint issue on clothes is ridiculous. Not a fan and am considering getting in touch with Fisher and Paykel, failing that selling it and cutting my losses.

Great for my little family
Great for washing blankets and child's bedding great for my daughter who gets dressed eight times a day great for any growing family I love that it's so easy to use and I haven't had to rip a sock or two out from going in the pipes great work guys love it
Quick and thorough
Some washing machines are rediculously difficult to operate especially digital ones but this one is straight forward and has wash times that don’t go for too long if you choose. I have the 7kg size which is ok for 1 queen doona maximum. Next time I’d prob opt for a bit larger but it spins and washes very well overall.
We bought one of these second-hand and are so happy with it. The machine washes my husbands clothes extremely well (not easy being a tradie). It’s water consumption is quite high though so don’t expect it to be savings there. It also takes a while even on a quick wash. Overall a great machine to wash clothes thoroughly.

Great washing machine - cleans well- exactly what I was looking for
I use this washing machine several times a week and overall, I have been happy with it. I was everything from clothes, to woollens and delicates to heavy duty clothes.
It is big enough to handle my blankets etc.
it washes delicates well - although the spin cycle leaves them a little wet, this is to be expected.
I find the functions easy to understand and operate.
I wish you could program a favourite cycle as it defaults to warm wash and I usually wash cold, but this is my only improvement.
The cycle times are reasonable. My last F&P quick cycle was a little faster, but I can't complain with 40ish mins.
Very happy! I hope it lasts as long as my last F&P
Works well but cheaper than before
We have had this for over five years and it still running! It thought it would pack up about a year ago and it was making a screeching noise went it emptied but it somehow got over it. If you know the old days of Fischer and Paykel, you will know that these modern machines are no where near as solidly built but hey, five years and still going strong so thats not too bad (by today's standards)

Third time buyer
Just bought our third F&P Top Loader in about 40 years. The other two did great service, including years of washing nappies, and withstanding interstate moves.
There are a couple of irks though about the changes that F&P has made to the top loaders. What happened to the lovely blue colour on the control panel? The silvery grey is boring in comparison. More importantly, the change to the colour scheme and the fonts used have made the writing very hard to read when selecting options, and the 'button' area that needs to be pressed to change a ...selection is nearly invisible except in extremely good light. Front loaders are a far better option for seniors (no bending, and generally they are more familiar with the operation of these) so the clarity of writing on the machine is important for them, as well as anyone who doesn't have the best eyesight or the brightest laundry. And a plug for The Good Guys. $75 to have the new machine delivered, installed, packaging removed, and old machine taken away, is worth every cent.
Great fits what I need washed at the time and does wash the blankets fitting well in machine
No so far so good. As it should be for a machine. None as it's got something to do with cleaning lol.just the fact if being able to wash mine and my family clothing is great. Water rating isn't to bad better than some also energy rating so far so good
Reliable Family Washer
We have two boys so the washer seems like its always on. School clothes, sports clothes, the latest spill. This is our second Fisher & Paykel machine and we know they are very reliable. Our last one was over twenty years old and still working when we replaced it! The controls are simple and its build strong, We anticipate having this one for twenty years too if possible.
This gets used every day at our place and never misses a beat. We have had great reliability although the water pump did go through a month or two of making a screeching sound which it stopped doing after a while. It may not be the most advanced or the softest on clothes - it is more of a typical traditional family washer. I would prefer a front loader but this model suits us well at the moment.
very gd washer
i really like this washing mashine it cleans well the clothes and also save energy it finish cleaning the clothes in less time then another mashine and clean them well also the size of this mashine is gd and can fit anywhere i would recommend this mashine for everyone. yeh
Questions & Answers
My washsmart will not spin what can I do. Load was unbalanced but I righted it then removed load wet. Machine refuses to spin. Help
What does washer advance do
Now that's a technical question, Ken. Haven't tried that function as I basically wanted a machine that was going to wash, rinse & spin off the clothes without too many hassles (ie not getting out of balance, etc) without me having to check on it every 5 minutes. I'd imagine that by pressing the 'washer advance' button it would shorten the length of the cycle, but that's a guess.
Next time the machine is being used, why don't you press the 'washer advance' button to see what happens?
That's how I find out what some of the functions are.
