Apart from a minor problem,and I do mean minor, I find the machine does an excellent job.

published

I am retired now, so really my washing consists of light clothing, shirts, pants and shorts. A weekly wash of bed linen and a seperate wash of a towel or two. Ive found the results to be very good.

Amazingly happy

published

Fisher paykel washing is such a fantastic brand. It’s functions are very easy. No wrinkles and damage to clothes. It has inbuilt light which makes easy to look inside when it’s dark outside. It has a drum cleaner function which reminds of cleaning the drum time to time. Very happy with it.

Does a good job!

published

I separate the whites, greys and dark colour clothes. Easy to use features and controls. The machine takes in a big load and is not noisy at all throughout the wash. Delicates wash well.
Pretty happy with cycle times and the quality of the wash.

Don’t buy

published

Used to be a good washing machine, a bit noisy but ok. Purchased 5 years ago at Good Guys and took out extended warranty. Extended warranty means nothing if it starts failing after 5 years. Keep getting an error message and it won’t finish a cycle. Spoke to customer service about it, they were absolutely useless as well. Said it’s a long weekend, not much I can do about it now. Technician only works Monday to Friday. Like what sort of customer service is that?! What a joke. Fisher and Paykel will not accept any responsibility for a product that fails after 5 years. Will definitely not buy Fisher and Paykel again, I’m done

Electronic Led Display Failure too quickly

published

Overall good washing machine but if the electronic display led lights fail, it will cost around $450 for a technician to come fix it! Seems to fail between 2-3 years of use. No point having led and electronic displays when they fail so quickly. Other models I had in the past eg. LG lasted a lot longer with the led display.

Washes good but get something else!

published

I loved all the features of this machine. Good wash times and the clothes come out clean.
But.....
The first machine I got was atrociously loud within a week of receiving it so I got it replaced with a new one and this one makes a loud noise while trying to heat up the water and doesn’t heat it up. 2 lemons!! Maybe I’ll get lucky the third time around!

Fisher & Paykel WH7560P2, what is the washing tumble size between 7.5, 8.0 and 8.5 Kgs

It's in the model number. WH7560P is 7.5kg, WH8060P is 8.0kg and WH8560P is 8.5kg. The first 2 numbers represents the size.

Every time the washing machine goes into the spin cycle it has quite a bad rattle on the left-hand side. When first bought it never used to do this, now it has got progressively worse. does anybody have any advice?

Did you adjust its feet to make sure it's perfectly level?

I have noticed this too!! The rattle is more noticeable when its pumping out in spin, immediately before the pump cuts out and starts again.
