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’.

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

2 answers

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.


In that case how do you know if the machine is not taking longer, never had a problem with water pessure of two previous front loaders

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.

Is this machine stackable?

1 answer

You can put a drier on top of the washer. Yes. I would recommend buying the rubber shock absorbers, which can be found at Bunnings. Although the washer is really quiet and has minimal movement it helps.
