Great quiet machineHWF85AN1 (8.5kg)
This machine replaced a bosh.
I do love this one, it’s smaller on the outside and bigger on the inside. Quiet. Smooth. I can choose exactly how I want to wash my clothes. Quick, speed up or a soak. Honestly I really did not expect a great machine but it is. I can also add a sock if I’m quick enough.

Great value for moneyHWF75AN1 (7.5kg)
This washing machine is great. Works well. Easy to use. Affordable. Great cycle options. Gentle on my clothes. The quick cycle is super quick and efficient.
My favourite washing machine EVERHWF75AN1 (7.5kg)
I bought this last year after many 2nd hand machines died after only a few months. It has certainly held up to the hype, and has not skipped a beat, even after washing blankets, doonas, pillows and mattress protectors. Its great on water use and power, and cleans beautifully. I can't say enough good things about this underrated brand. I'm glad I researched Hair before buying. Otherwise I would have missed out on a great appliance. PLEASE don't use fabric softener as it clogs up and causes mould!!!!!

Washer is garbage, no general wash function.HWF-AN1 Series
Aside from the useless smart connectivity function, there is no general wash function. All of these specific programs and nothing where a busy, working, single parent can just drop a bunch of clothes into the drum and hit go. How did we get to the point where the ideas of some university graduate try hard with no life skills or experience dictates product function and design rather than what people actually want. The flimsy door feels like it is going to end up breaking as a result of the amount of force required to open it. This is the third a... Read morend last LG/Haier/GE piece of trash that I will own, none of the appliances I have work as intended or have useful function and don't get me started on the power wasting and useless cook top that is uncontrollable because of the so-called "Smart cycling" where I can't get a constant temperature. LG=Amateur and boorish design.

Peeling PaintHWF85AN1 (8.5kg)
Paint peeled off the front of the washing machine Model HWF85AN1 when removing the sticky tape within a few minutes of the unit being installed
Disappointing E&S will not replace this for another week, but at least at this moment in time they stated they will replace it.
Haier themselves were polite but useless
The machine has not even been used yet and I don't have much hope if it is already falling apart.

Good machine for $$$, shallow depth drum, handy WiFiHWF85AN1 (8.5kg)
I did my head in doing research prior to purchasing this machine.
So many reviews, so much miss information (even after ringing the manufacturer to confirm) the delayed start option NOT being present from review info.
The machine replaced an eight-year-old Samsung front loader 8 kg capacity and immediately I noticed on this new unit the shallow depth of the drum even though it is a stated larger 8.5 kg capacity. There is no way I could fit the same size load in this unit as I could my old 8 kg Samsung due to the reduced depth of the drum. (... Read moreSame circumference). Considering this though the features on offer suited my requirements and although I have only done a couple of washes I am happy with its performance. A little difficult getting the app and Wi-Fi connection talking to each other but all good now and I can confirm there IS a delayed start option accessible from within the app. Initially I wrote this feature off as I was happy with the purchase price and other features and was prepared to live without the delayed start option but very happy to soon learn this IS available from the app and works well. The spin cycle at 1400 RPM leaves the washing drier than my previous 1200rpm Samsung. I would recommend this unit but be mindful of the smaller sized drum which could be an issue for you.

Waste of moneyHWF85AN1 (8.5kg)
Bellow torn within 5 weeks. Neither manufacturer nor retailer willing to refund, rather accusing consumers of having a sharp item in the wash which is not correct. $700 + $85 delivery down the drain.

Not practical at allHWF85ANB1 (8.5kg)
My Haier 8.5kg machine in black colour is only 9 days old and obviously under warranty. It is not washing my clothes properly. White clothes stay dull, socks stay dirty, and stains are also not getting removed.
I wanted to figure out the problem. But its very dark door doesn't let me have a look inside. If i could look inside, i could get an idea if i need to adjust its wash cycles or set its higher soak timings to fix the problem. This specific model has no "drum light" inside and no "auto dosing" function as well. So the user cant trust th... Read moree machine that it can take appropriate amount of detergent itself. And the user cannot look inside to assess the problem as well. For normal white front loading machines, with transparent doors, i never thought about a drumlight. I had no idea how this black door going to annoy me in the future and i had no idea that i MUST need a drumlight with dark door. Obviously I realized it after using it. But retailers and manufacturers would just say you read the features and bought it. They don't want to accept that customer cant predict its consequences before using it. With all these problems, when you give a call to JB HIFI or HAIER, they tell you that a technician will come to check the machine. If it is customer's negligence or fault, then customer needs to give $150 to technician. And for customer's fault, they have a very long list You are putting too much detergent Or too less detergent Not using the correct wash cycle.

It's so quit, and after one year, I feel obliged to write something to thank the good engineering, and workmanship, and the honest pricing.

Good machine - but no timer delay and always showing AutoHWF85AN1 (8.5kg)
We bought this machine to replace our 16 year old Hotpoint machine from Europe. Although a very good machine it is missing some key functionality. There is no way to put a time delay on the machine - so you can't set the machine to run when you aren't physically near it. Which in my view is a fundamental flaw with the machine. Also the display is always showing Auto - so you actually can't see what program is running - in case you made an error and had to 'pause' the wash. Also the tray has water left in it at the end of every wash - you just need to empty it each time. Apart from these things the machine seems to wash the clothes well and it appears to be economical.

Excellent washing machineHWF85AN1 (8.5kg)
I load my machine up to the hilt and it still manages you wash the clothes beautifully.
They are appropriately dryed and love all the machine features. Can even connect with Wi-Fi.
The average eco cycle is a little long at around 50 mins. Or you have 15 mins express, nothing in between. Overall, great machine

Fake reviewsHWF95ANB1 (9.5kg)
Edit: Machine was repaired by Haier at no expense to me. Working well now. I probably overfilled it. That being said, a 9.5kg machine should not be limited to 7kg of bedding.
The above review by David is fake. Many of the reviews for the 7.5kg version are fake as well. Seriously, read the review. The English is odd, and no one speaks like that, or in that volume. Reads like a bad infomercial.
Anyway, I did a large load with our 9.5kg machine. The front door seal popped off, and it spilled water all over our wood floor. Twice... Read more we have re-attached the seal and it has popped off both times spilling more water. Now looking at the manual, I see this 9.5kg machine is limited to only 7kg for bedding. Why? I guess so that the seal doesn't pop off and leak water everywhere. What's the point of a 9.5kg machine that can't wash 9.5kgs as soon as a sheet or blanket is added? Anyway, I guess I need to call the warranty people.
Wish I never bought it!HWF-AN1 Series
I’ve only had this machine for 9 days. Done 3 loads.
Firstly, the instructions in the manual don’t match with the very tiny images that are so blacked out, I can hardly see them.
It has locked 3 times and it’s quite a task to unlock it.
It needs to do another spin or something as the clothes are still wet!
This one is the worst, after each wash there is a heap of water on the floor which is slowly dripping out from the bottom of the door!

Questions & Answers
Does anyone know how to use the download program function on this machine?
Is this machine able to fit queen doonas for washing?
I’ve noticed several comments about the unit being low to the ground. Is there a booster box/draw that’s compatible with the machine?
Why does my washing machine make a strange noise when the cycle starts like a wheezing noise then stops when filling with water also inside of drum is very stiff
