Machine is great except it’s not. Good programs, great ease of use, look fine BUT for the love of god it cannot handle any imbalance. It seems only the smallest imbalance sends it into thump thump mode and then stops. Rearrange the load, start again and yep same problem multiple times

Just bought. Very noisy. 22 days to wait for a technician.
We used F&P top loaders for over 20 years - high quality and reliable products. Not any more. WA7560E1 delivered yesterday. It is very noisy. Called F&P for assistance. The earliest available appointment is in 22 (twenty-two) days. It looks F&P is extremely busy with repairs. Does that tell much about quality?

Beeps every cycle - too sensitive to weight distribution in barrel. Have to press start to make it go again.
1. This machine is too sensitive to weight distribution in barrel. We bought this machine, for the fact that it had a big barrel size, so we could wash blankets etc in. But it can’t handle a blanket. Even when the barrel is only 1/4 full, with a blanket or load of towels/clothes, every single time it goes on to spin - like after main wash, when it’s doing it’s 2 spray rinses - it stops, and beeps - repetitively. You have to go check it (after the beeps nearly drive you wild), see that the load is basically even inside, and press start for it to...go again, but for it to do the same thing after 5-10 minutes - basically not moving any further along in the cycle. So a wash load that would usually just do itself - like a machine should - needs humans to help it the whole way along - and so it does not just take 1 hour - it ends up much longer - depending on how quick you come to move it along. 2. Plus, there’s is no option to just put it on the Last rinse (final fill). So if you forget to put your fabric softener in, and you want to put it on another final rinse for this, it has to go through 2 spray rinses first, rinsing away all the fabric softener. Or, you have to remember to come and add the fabric softener on the last fill, or put it into “wash” again, then remember to come and turn off, then turn on again and put onto “Spin”. Take me back to the old mwachines that were manual, not electric. I find this so frustrating. A machine should work for what it is designed for.

I use my machine daily and use it to wash all types of fabrics and colours including delicate and heavy duty materials. Eg silks, satins through to work clothes Needing the heavy duty wash.

The quality is really good.
The quality of Fisher & Paykel washing machine is really good. We got it from my friend, and it has been lasting for five years since 2015, and now it is still in good condition.

In love with this product
Love this product; I have being using this product for more than 3 years without a single problem. I wash from rough to smooth cloths using the options given. Everything comes out perfectly. I can reduce the cycle times and select the spin speed to match the clothing type I wash. I would highly recommend this reliable product.
Purchased in February 2016.
We replaced our old fisher and paykel about 4 weeks ago with the larger 7.5kg top loader and its great. Very easy to use and quiet as well. The easy to use touch controls mean our daughters can use with ease and it uses less power and water than our old machine.
Fisher & Paykel WashSmart Top Loader
I usually put my daily change of clothes in the washing machine, and sometimes I wash my sheets.
Product Features/controls and their performance I am very satisfied
this washing machine can effectively clean my clothes, I think this is very good
I think the time, in the washing machine work, I can effectively use the time to do other things
Great washing machine
Bought this at the local mart at a discount. Not too bad function wise. However, tends to produce a weird sound when turning, and wish it has a child lock. Has not tried any delicates in it yet.
This is best WM from the best company there products never disappoint and this machine is real good for the price . It also brings out best colour in clothes . The water usage is very low and uses very less electricity and it drains cloth very well which is 80%job of dryer
This is great not to loud great washing always does the job has never failed quality not quantity I love this washing machine best in the world to me I will not use anything else it is that great I will buy another when I love as I am moving soon
I have never had a problem with this machine, the user interface feels new and futuristic, works extremely well for the price! Could not be happier, had this for quite a while now and not a single issue, it has many different options and fairly quiet for the large size
Don't waste your time
My experience with this machine has been terrible I bought the machine in 2015 excited as read on reviews how it cleans well etc. but within the first month I had issues with lint, had the service Tech came out gave me some hints on to make sure every wash fill water to full. Also advising me to use liquid instead of powder, as that might cause problem. Kept this up but still had the issue, eventually they gave me a new machine which was the 8 kg, had problems stopping and running loudly, with still lint problems.they replaced the electrical panel as it stopped working . Now 2018 it has stopped again saying bal, stops at 32 minutes., not a happy customer.
Should have gone for the Biger unit
We bought this on advice from the sales man at good guys that our family lot of cloths would all fit but we now wish we upgraded to the next size up as we have to do almost three washes as the drum inside takes up a lot of room and gives not much space for bulky items
A great brand.
Bought this washing machine to replace my old Fisher and Paykel washing machine. Kept with the same brand as I had been very happy with my old machine which lasted 20 years!!! Washes clothes really well. Simple to operate. Energy efficient. Great size for family of 4. It is a bit noisy, especially during the spin cycle. Good value.
Questions & Answers
Why does it take 39mins for a quick wash nearly as long as a normal wash?
