A quiet machine that cleans clothes very well even with fast wash cycles. It has a number of features - I love the 7kg capacity and how easy it is to use. Also love the soft close lid in case little fingers find their way in the laundry room. It's also I nice looking machine with easy to read buttons.
Very happy with this product.
Couldn't be happier, as my old machine (nearly 25 years old) was on the way out went in search of a new one, can't fault it, has been wonderful, fairly quiet and very easy to use. lots of different options (I must admit that I just use the basic cycle) good choice of spin speed as well. Very easy to use
This is our 2nd Fisher & Paykel. The last one survived 11 years and is now kept in the shed for washing dog beds. This one is so much quieter, especially after the rather noisy mating calls the other one makes during the spin cycle or when it tried to goose step across the laundry when it was unbalanced. Does a great job and the unbalanced load warning is extremely handy. If this one does as well we will be very happy.
Great for washing
Cleans clothes very well. Clothes stay looking like new. It isn't loud and has many features you can choose from such as easy iron, allergy, hand wash, heavy duty and regular. It is economical on energy and saves energy and water if used on cold. Best washing machine I have used!
Best ever Washing Machines
This is my 3rd Fisher & Paykel washing machine. Each machine has been fantastic. My adult kids are still using the 2nd one as I have retired to the country. The machines work flawlessly for over a decade. I have never required any repair work on any. This brand is the gold standard in washing machines. Highly recommended.
A lovely little machine, washes well and has a great cycle..not too long , clothes come out beautifully clean and I haven't noticed any extra wear and tear on clothing. Nice compact little machine which is why I purchased it..my other machine would not fit in the space that the builder had provided..This only just fits on the tiled area..Purchased when we moved in here in 2015 still going strong
this is best brand ever, fisher & paykel is such quality and affordable, would always recommend this brand. best white good i have ever purchased, even though it is a bit loud and the cycle is short. very gentle on clothing and cleans and rinses clothing very well. all good
Very Good So Far
I've only had this machine for a couple of weeks, so this is an early report:
7 Kg is a good size for me (household of self and a cat) as it allows washing of pillows and blankets. The wash when competed is well on the way to drying if spun at 1000 RPM.
As mentioned by others, the agitation on regular is quite aggressive, and I will mainly use the quick or delicate cycles. My first wash of sheets on regular wash produced somewhat tangled sheets.
Really easy to use. Some functions such as water level, warm wash water temperature and sp...in speed can be reprogrammed into the washer's memory, but it isn't really needed as operation is so straight forward. The one function that can't be reprogrammed as far as I can see is the 'soak' period, which at 2 hours is way too long for me. Can anyone help me here?
Reliable efficient and quiet to run.
This F & P washes clothes brilliantly from heavy duty to delicates with a slower spin speed. It's quiet to run I even put it on before going to bed and it doesn't disturb us at all. It stays in place and also has a shorter load duration and is gentle on clothing whilst still washing clotbes efficiently.
Washes well. Quiet operation. Love the fact that you can set your regular cycle and auto levels. Also like the remaining time display. Replaced a 16 year old Fisher & Paykel washing machine which was still working but making a bit of noise. Top loader as I have difficulty bending for a front loader.
April 1st 2018 Update: Fantastic machine
Washes well and can be customised for different wash options saving time as wash, rinse speed and time don't have to be adjusted every time. I generally wash on Quick cycle as our clothes aren't very dirty, they rather just need freshening up. I use Regular for sheets and towels. IUt is very quiet.

This washing machine is great! Fast and clean!!!!
I bought this washing machine about half years ago when we moved into a new house. The experience is so great because after the spin cycle, the clothes becomes extremely dry although the whole processes lasts for 15 mins. Our whole family enjoy using it and it provides us with great convenience.

So far so good
After years of reliable hoovers and simpsons we hit a bad patch of second hand machines. We decided to bite the bullet and go new again. We read the reviews and this seemed like a good machine. We don't like electronic machines, but couldn't find something with good enough reviews, so we decided to suck it and see. This machine seems fast and reliable. We have had no unbalanced loads, despite several loads I was sure would be problematic based on past experience. The operations are pretty simple. Just need to remember to turn the hot hose on if doing a warm wash, which they recommend about once a week if you normally do cold (allegedly keeps the machine clean). So lets see how it goes.
Will only buy Fisher&Paykel washing machines
My first Fisher&Paykel was pur hased many years ago.Wont even consider other brands even if are more reasonable.
My four daughters all have same brand but larger as they need with growi g fa ilies.Colours and whites bright gentle wash. Many selections for fine fabrics and very hard working when required for the footy clothes n denims. Also great for blankets etc.If i can give it 10 STARS I Would.
Great, reliable machine
Very happy with this fisher and paykel washing machine. Super quiet, water efficient, and cleans clothes really well and is also kind on clothes , towels etc. Different spin cycles and self balances and beeps when finished the wash We are a couple but would recommend to families as well.
Great washer, easy to use very user friendly
Cleans and rinses very well never had a problem with soap residue
Extremely gentle on clothes no excess creasing or crushing after the spin cycle
Very quiet during the whole washing cycle especially during the spin cycle
Lots of options you can pause or stop mid cycle to add more washing
updated after 15 years with another F&P
Had a F&P 6.5 kg top loader for 15 years till bearing went, didnt hesitate to by another . Very sleek design and simple to use and doesnt tangle your clothes into knots. Fast spin at 1000 rpm leaves clothes very dry and yet is very quiet as well. Got a good deal at HN and looking forward to another trouble free 15 years
Excellent machine so far - newly purchased - 8 loads of washing - clothes covered in pet hair!
Our last washing machine from a different brand was nothing but useless junk leaving washing powder on clothes! So after coming from that type of machine I have found - 7kg machine won't fit donna's or sleeping bags. I am currently using He labeled washing liquid and the a full lid of un-diluted vanish powder, a full to the top fabric softener amount (about a cap full) and am yet to find any powder on the clothes washed, at Time of writing put a jumper through with hay seeds on and has managed to not leave any seeds on the jumper, nor other clo...thes that were in that wash load there isn't a lint filter net, like on some machines but so far am yet to have any real lint on any clothes especially after previous machine all but destroyed clothes and created lint! (GGRRRR!!!) but unlike other machines where a lint filter is non-existent this machine has a different type of lint filter, that can be pulled out and cleaned probably recommended regularly with a heavy user! At present the machine is very quite during operation with the exception of spin dry, but isn't overly loud, enough that you can hear it, but tune out, unfortunately one feature to be careful of is that it defaults to warm wash every use - haven't worked out how to save that cold water settings yet, but user manual stipulates a warm wash should be used every 5 wash's regardless of what's been through, user manual is not difficult to under or follow either, even for someone that isn't technologically advanced, the user panel is very easy to press a light touch is all...user manual states to not use any cleaning products or wet hands so will be keeping that in mind, user manual says it has an overload feature that tells you you have to much washing in the machine great idea, yet to experience that (thank goodness!) I got a 2 yr warranty but optional of extending that for an extra few years, I will be trying to follow the manufactures care instructions carefully so hoping with that 10 years from now I'll still have it if I follow it, thankyou for reading and thankyou to my parents for giving me a 'no interest loan' so I could buy it!!! Happily putting washing through, will be cleaning wardrobe out and putting that through!! P.s whirlpool toploader was my previous machine from hell!!! So if you don't like this machine don't every in your life buy that particular one, not one good review it!!! Check out the reviews from it!!! Hopefully in a year will give an update someone remind me/prompt me
- WashSmart WA7060G2 (7kg)
The technology of this washer feels superior. So quiet so easy to program. Not keen on the agitator wings they feel they could endanger clothes and catch but there has not been a problem, never used the water saver as I am concerned that the lower level might affect the wings. I love love love this washing machine
I have had two of these machines the last one lasted 20 years of hard labor, if you want a top loader at a good price you cant go wrong with these units, just make sure you measure the door way in to your laundry if you buy a bigger machine than the one you have PS the cloths dryers are also excellent,
Clean clothes really well even if very big load. Works same as front loader it's Quiet and compact, water saver Excellant that you can add to wash after it starts. Was extremely easy to install even for a lady. I have a 8.5kg myself so I was pleased to buy the 7kg for other family members.
This is the second Fisher & Paykel washing machine I have had. The first one I had for 15 years and possibly could have had it repaired but decided to buy a new one. All my family, on my recommendation, have Fisher & Paykel washing machines. As long as I don't overload it the clothes don't crease. I like the beeps when the washing is finished and it is quiet.
