How it works


This Fisher & Paykel Top Loader has 12 cycles to choose from. Regarded to be one of the most energy efficient 8.5 kg Top Loaders on the market.

What is SmartDrive™?

Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive™ machines are made of just three main parts: a small computer, a flexible agitator, and a simple direct-drive motor. This means washing machines that can sense each load, use less water and run with less moving parts.

Eco-Active™ Wash Technology

Giving an impressive 4 star energy rating the Eco-Active™ Wash is proven to boost soil removal, be more effective at killing bacteria, and save on power bills.

SmartTouch™ Controls

e SmartTouch™ Control Dial accesses SmartDrive™ technology through 12 cycles: Regular, Heavy, Delicate, Wool, Easy Iron, Bulky, Allergy, Quick, Bowl Clean, Rinse, Spin and Sports.

Easy Installation

The self-levelling feet system makes installation easy and ensures the washer stays level. This minimises out-of-balance and vibration, which keeps noise levels to a minimum.

Designed to Match

With matching control panels and finishes our Top Loader washers and Compact Dryers make the perfect pair not only looking good but also allowing extra space in the laundry. You can place a Vented Dryer inverted overhead or place any dryer alongside.

Strong Safe Lid

FabricSmart™ has an extremely robust, soft close glass lid made from laundry chemical resistant 6mm glass. The kitchen quality soft close mechanism makes it family-safe, avoiding any slamming or jamming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great All-Rounder [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had this washing machine for 6 months and we are certainly happy with our choice. The three delivery gentleman wore a Fisher and Paykel shirt with the company logo on it and they looked and behaved in a friendly and professional manner. They installed the machine and gave it a test run, cleaned up and we’re just a great team. The washing machine has many cycle choices. Regular is great for the everyday loads, Gentle is fantastic for jumpers and tracksuits that you don’t want to go pilly or fluffy. The Bulky load is just fantastic for the doonas, blankets and mattress protectors. As we use all of these loads it’s great to watch the machine perform adjustments to balance the loads. It’s amazing how much fits into the machine and everything we have washed in the last six months has come out of the wash pill and scum free, wonderfully cleaned and not tangled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great options, clean clothes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love that you have options of tailoring the load size and the time, relating to whether the load is very dirty or just needs a light clean. The washing always comes out smelling great, looking clean and lint free. Its also really helpful that the machine tells you how long is left for a load to finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this machine. The only thing I would change is when you a delicate cycle it doesn’t spin all the water out. So it’s quite wet at the end of the cycle. The other thing is the fabric softener dispenser can come apart sometimes during the cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I bought this during lockdown, sight unseen. I based my decision on reviews and specs and was not dissapointed. I love this machine! It is so much more efficient than my old clunky Whirlpool and I am amazed at how water efficient it is. Best thing to happen to me in lockdown!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant machine! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to use! Great wash. Good choice of settings. Especially like that it doesn't take hours for one wash. This is my third F&P washing machine. Wouldn't buy any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large compact unit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this a couple months ago replacing our 17yr old F&P unit. It’s so easy to use. It’s a bigger tub than our previous one. Reasonably priced. Very happy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F&P washer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Excellent top loader, great size and easy to use. Love that you can set up your own wash preferences and auto water level works well.
