Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fisher & Paykel washing machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] For the last 30 years I have had F & P washing machines and have been so happy with them. After 20yrs my machine broke down so I bought the equivalent new model. As always it does a brilliant wash, however when the water drains from the machine it is so loud, in fact I had the repair man out and he said the pump needed to be replaced, however because I had only had the machine 2 days it was replaced. The replacement is just as loud, extremely disappointing as none of the older machines I’ve had were noisy at all. If I had to choose a machine again I would not choose this machine for that reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fisher & Paykel rocks! I love my purchase! It's efficient on time & water, & it's quiet. My last F&P WM lasted 16 years, was sad to see it go, but my new one makes me soooo happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing I absolutely love my new washing machine after putting up with my old washing machine for years I don't know why I didn't upgrade sooner!! Takes up less room in my laundry than my old washing machine even though bigger capacity! Extremely happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy! I purchased m new washer about a month ago and I was very happy with the whole process. I installed it with the help of my teenage daughter using the easy to follow instructions. The washer itself is very easy to use and so much quicker than my old front loader. I was a bit confused at first about the self cleaning lint filter but it seems to be working well. On the whole, for my large family of teens it is a brilliant size, efficient and so easy to use the kids are helping with the washing.

Questions & Answers

I have an 8kg clean smart F&P top loader (no agitator). I get nasty fluff/dirt/lint marks on my black/dark clothing. Is there a compartment tucked away somewhere on this machine that I am unaware of that requires cleaning. I do a hot wash regularly.

Asked by: Cheryl
Thanks for your question Cheryl. F&P advise washing lint givers like towels & flannelette sheets separately from lint collectors like synthetic fabrics. They also suggest reducing load size or adjusting the amount of detergent used, as the detergent is used to help keep lint under control. Failing that, please contact your closest Harvey Norman store and our friendly team can review in more detail.
