Forgotten Something?

Missed an item from your wash? The Add a Garment function allows you to pause your wash cycle, open the door and add or remove items. Then carry on washing.

Wool and Sports Cycles

The special Woolmark-approved wool cycle cleans gently and beautifully. The sports cycle starts washing with cold water then gently heats up as it washes. This stops mud and stains from setting into the fabric.

Timed Liquid Detergent Dispenser

Designed for use with the pre-wash program, a dedicated liquid detergent dispenser ensures liquid detergents are distributed into the wash at exactly the right time in the cycle to optimise wash performance.


The soak option, which is not available in many front loaders, includes a one-hour soak and tumble sequence to help lift unwanted stains.

Interior Light

It's dark inside front loaders and the low energy LED interior light makes finding that last sock a lot easier.

Time Saver Wash Cycles

The Time Saver Option activates a special temperature profile and unique tumble sequence to speed things up even more when you are in a rush.

Fisher & Paykel 8.5kg FabricSmart Front Loading Washing Machine is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speeds up drying! In comparison with previous machines this one spins so well that the time for the clothes to dry after hanging them outside has reduced to only four hours on an overcast day and less on a hot sunny day. When hung inside they are dry within 24 hours compared to the two to three days previously

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guaranteed clean I bought this machine online without even seeing it, going by its power and water ratings. First time I used I was transported to washday heaven. Lint and hair free, clean and fresh smelling washing with bright colours and Tepeating myself -really clean. Quiet machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this product Had this for a couple of months now and it works great. Previous to this I had a electrolux frontloader - in comparision, this * Uses less water * Uses less Power * Washes twice as fast * Quieter * Has a lit-up barrel (easy to find those socks skulking at the back of the machine) * Can be used just on cold water, or with hot and cold (handy if you run of gas hotwater, in which case it's cheaper than getting the machine to heat the water up)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met All Expectations We purchased this machine a couple of months ago with the intention of keeping up with increased washing loads with our first child. It has met all expectations, it has great functions, easy to use and does an excellent job.
