How it works


The FabricSmart™ Front Loader is Fisher & Paykel's ultimate washing machine for fabric care. With outstanding water and energy efficiency, and premium features like an Interior light, Time Saver Option, Soak and a Woolmark approved Wool cycle. It is designed to match a Fisher & Paykel vented or condensing dryer.

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 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
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 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)

Lint and hair free, clean and fresh smelling washing with bright colours and Tepeating myself -really clean. Quiet machine

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as a top loader. Bought this product 1 year ago. F&P is my favourite brand, however, Cycles are very long and slow so with a family and lots of washing, getting sheets done on weekend can take all day long. It has been hard to level out the washing machine so it doesn't move around during spin cycle. I also find it does not wash clothes as well as the top loader. my mum and friend also have the same washing machine and feel the same. I miss my top loader and would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great efficient and quiet with plenty of options I can't fault this machine. A full range of wash programmes, full range of temperatures (from cold right up to 90 degrees), delay start, range of spin speeds - the works. Wash times range from about 30 minutes to over 2 hours. We use the cotton wash which is just under an hour almost all the time. Seems to be gentle on cloths. Huge capacity. It operates quietly - it is in our garage right under our bedroom and we can barely hear it. The previous F&P top loader was clearly audible.
