Door has developed cracks on the front panel. Apparently not covered by warranty.

Works fine, just normal washing. Controls are easy to use and we are satisfied with the cycle times. It does t@ke a little bit too long to dry. Machine could be higher as when you are older, putting in and taking out is sometimes hard.

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $1,580.

No star Garbage

published

It’s a washer dryer combo stopped working just about an year time. Service call took 1 month or more to arrive. The guy said super confident he fixed though I told him, yes it will look heated but after he out of my front door, I did a washer dryer cycle and returned fully drenched/ socked cloths. Waiting for Monday to raise another service calls and I am sure will take another month and half. Terrible, never buy this

Great to begin with but now noisy

published

When we first started using it was great but now after only a short time the dryer makes this horrible loud sound which never stops. We have had a technician come to fix but says there is nothing wrong with it and it is only a little air escaping but when we first started using it was not doing this.

Useless, Slow and nearly caught fire!

published

Should not have bought. Even on quick cycle it takes around 4 hours to wash and dry. After just 18 months wont dry and nearly caught fire!! not happy! Also - the amount of lint after each load - accumulates around door.

Never again

published

The machine failed three times in 3 years- all separate faults. We had product care from Harvey Norman who eventually just gave us a credit to replace with another brand. We were out of pocket as we lost our reloading product care warranty and also cost of machine was now higher. The after sales was also frustrating, lots of phone calls promised to be returned but never were.

Purchased in for $1,300.

Was doing fine, then just completely died.

published

With a family of 5, this machine held up admirably for just over 2 years. It's very loud, and sometimes a heavy wash/dry cycle will take 7 - 8 hours BUT generally it did the job.

Right after warranty expires though, it starts emitting a burning smell and the barrel stops turning. I called for machine repair and they said it wasn't worth it, I just needed to dump it and buy a new one.

So, yeah, I expect a reasonably expensive whitegood to last much longer than 2 years. But after reading all of the other reviews here, I can see there are many others who's machine died early and suddenly. I do not recommend. Good luck if you choose to get one.

Purchased in for $1,100.

Absolute garbage

published

Within 4 months of buying we needed a replacement dryer part and bearings went. Tech company terrible made appointments and never showed up after 6 months finally replaced with new washer. Told me if it happened again it was the fault of solar panels and they wouldn't replace it. Within 4 months of having the new one same issue.....so frustrated just bought a top loader from Samsung will never purchase Fisher panel again.... they also need to review their service people in regional Vic.

Faulty Parts

published

Very disappointed with this machine. The seal gasket melted within months and then came off entirely and the silver detail peaked within the year. Having the faults repaired has been a time consuming exercise that has involved repeat calls to the customer service centre - the first representative did not accurately record the details of the fault or order the correct parts to repair. I would not recommend this product.

My daughter has just bought washer/dryer combo but said it isn’t drying her clothes, had only her undergarments in, after two drying cycles they were still quite damp! Is she using a wrong setting?

I find this too. Only dries well if not much in the machine. So wash then take half out. Or just do 2 loads instead of 1. Not an ideal solution, wish I'd known this before purchasing it.

I found my clothes came out of the dryer quite wet so I just made a clothesline in the carport. This machine is overpriced crap.

When using the drying function only. I just like to use a dryer to finish off the drying process when clothes have been hanging out. Can you just put in for 5-10 minutes and open the door to check then keep opening and checking till its dry? Or does it have to do a full dry cycle and you can't open the door?

If you put them in for 5 mins then want to open it you have to wait like half an hr for the machine to "cool" before the door will unlock..

What have reviewers thought of the Fisher & Paykel WD8560F1 Washer Dryer?

There were more negative than positive reviews of this washer dryer. Reviewers who left negative feedback said that their machine needed repairs in as little as 1 year after purchase.

A number of reviewers were also less than impressed with the after sales service. They found it difficult to get through to customer service, experienced long wait times on the phone, and said that staff didn’t return calls or action requests when they said they would. The overall sentiment was that the aftercare was inadequate for a product that should last years.

One common point of praise for this machine was how quiet it was. Reviewers were also divided on the washer dryer’s performance; while some said it was efficient and clothes came out clean and dry, others said that it took over 6 or more hours for their laundry to finish, and that sometimes their clothes didn’t come out dry.
