So very happy

Plenty of useful program options with easy to follow controls. Washes incredibly well and cycle times are reasonable. Auto dosing is a nice feature to compliment the auto load sensing. We are very happy with the generous 10kg capacity. The manual is easy to follow and explains all functions well. Show details

Flooded first wash!

The machine ran well for the first 15 minute cycle but completely flooded the soap dispenser on the second 60 minute wash. The amount of water that flooded out of the machine was enough to completely flood the laundry space. Water remained pooled in the soap dispenser and wouldn’t drain! Replacement machine seems to be running okay but time will tell! Show details

Brand new machine with incorrect soap dispener floods the floor on first wash!

Brand new machine was delivered 2 weeks ago and has the wrong soap dispenser installed. It flooded the laundry floor on first use.
It has taken 2 weeks for a Haier technician to come to find the fault due to his job queue. He was a great guy so no blame on him. The machine is to be replaced by Haier.
Its now 2 weeks before Christmas, I wonder if Santa will be bringing it. He's gunna need a heavy duty sleigh!
I'll let you know how long it takes! Show details

Questions & Answers

DeePee · HWF-AN1 Series (UV Protect)

I bought this machine in January 2022 and it has been generally working well.
Over the past couple of months it has developed a squeaking noise as the drum turns, which seems to be from the drum rubbing on the rubber seal.
I can recreate the noise by hand turning the drum while the machine is empty.
I'm hoping a Haier rep can tell me if this a known condition due to normal wear and tear or should I be booking a warranty service call?

I have the same issue, yet my machine was only a few weeks old. I had a technician out who diagnosed a faulty motor. The motor was replaced, but the issue still remains. What was your outcome?

Features

  • The Haier HWF-AN1 Series washing machines can wash clothes for a household of 3-4 people (the 8kg and 9kg models), or 5 or more people (the 10kg-capacity model).
  • All washing machines have a 4.5-star energy efficiency rating and 4.5-star water rating, making them environmentally friendly options for doing your laundry.
  • With 14 wash cycles, 6 spin speeds and 5 temperature settings, customising your laundry sessions to achieve your desired level of cleanliness is within sights.
  • The special UV Protect wash modifiers has been scientifically proven to remove 99.9% of bacteria.
  • Eco mode reduces energy usage by 44% and water usage by 25L compared to a regular wash on a Cotton cycle. This is an impressive feat on a machine that already rates 4.5 stars for energy efficiency and water consumption.
  • A Smart dosing feature intuits the right amount of detergent needed per wash depending on the cycle, which helps reduce waste.
  • A Refresh Steam cycle is an innovative way of using steam to deodorise clothes and remove wrinkles from them.
  • If you’re in a rush but need to wash the clothes, a Speed Up Function or the Express 15 wash cycle is handy if you just need a quickly wash slightly soiled clothes.
  • This washing machine has ways of keeping itself clean. These include an Anti-Bacteria Treatment on the drum and detergent dispenser, and a dual nozzle spray, which removes foam and dirt from the door and gasket after each wash cycle.

Here’s what reviewers think so far:

  • The ability to heat water up to 90 degrees Celcius was appreciated, as was the fact that the machine can heat its own water up.
  • Fast spin speeds up to 1400rpm were a plus point for reviewers. The spin cycle produced drier clothes compared to other machines with slower spin cycles.
  • The washing machines operated quietly, including the Spin cycle, which is usually the loudest stage of the washing process.
  • UV Protect was cited as a welcome addition for eliminating bacteria. Reviewers liked that it added an extra measure of protection during COVID-19 times and for cold and flu seasons. It was also reported to help with odours.
  • The high energy and water efficiency ratings made this washing machine economical to use.
  • Smart-app functionality allows you to control the washing machine from your smart device, which reviewers found handy once they figured out how to use it.
  • Some reviewers took issue with the usable capacity of the machine, which they thought could be larger.
  • The manual was said to be confusing sometimes, or missing information. This can be frustrating when there are so many different functions and features on the machine to explore.
