It’s okay, but has started shredding clothes
This machine isn’t well designed. The filters don’t really work and leave debris in the drum. Cleaning The filter leaks water all over the floor. Cycles are longer than stated.
Today it’s started shedding clothes. I pulled out the washing and there was a big hole in a couple of items. The machine is cleaned regularly and was not overloaded. Really disappointing.
I tired to contact them about it, but the chat is ‘full’.
Purchased in July 2020 at Bi-Rite Home Appliances for $800.00.

Very happy with our new machine!
We needed to replace our old 8kg front loader and so glad we chose this Fisher & Paykel model, very easy to use, very quiet and clothes come out almost dry!

Great washer a must have at home.
The washing machine exceeded our expectations.
Everything we have washed so far comes out really clean. The cycles are so easy to use. Even the instructions manual was really easy and direct to what needs to be done.
The installation guide was very detailed and easy.
When the machine is operating it is so quiet you don’t know if it is on or off. It has a subtle sound when it has finished the cycle which is nice. I timed all the cycles we have used and it is surprisingly accurate on the time it shows it will take to do the cycle.
8 kg capacity is a good amount of clothes which, is good for a family with two kids.
It has a drum clean cycle which I recommend to use once a week or fortnight. ...We are really happy to have picked this model and it matches with our dryer which is a Fisher & Paykel too also great product.
Questions & Answers
Hello, I have recently purchased a F & P front loader WH8060j3. When I set the everyday wash , cold water it advises 59 minutes however it always go over from 15 mins or more - the 30min wash, also cold water can go over by approx 5-7mins. is this normal? Carmel
As far as I know this is fine as those minutes is the time the machine is taking to fill water, which depending on your water supply may vary depending on the pressure of the water pipe.
However I always use the everyday wash of 104 minutes (default) setting.
This said I have never taken the exact time the machine takes from end-end.
why is it that there are no posted answers to your online questions? IS this a sign of poor service response?
Not really. I am quite happy with the Fisher & Paykel products I purchase so far. Fridge, washer and dryer. Soon going to get a Freezer. Perhaps yo can contact them directly on their website. I did a purchase of water filters at the beginning of the week and the live chat was working and ready to assist.
