    Love, love, love it!

    I have had my Fisher and Paykel Washsmart for nearly a year and I love love, love it!
    Being able to add a garment in the wash cycle is great. It washes better than my last machine and spins them dryer as well. My clothes definitely look and feel cleaner! The size is great for our family of 4 and it fits my king size sheets in no worries, never have a backlog of washing because I can do big loads. Time delay is awesome means i can set it to Finnish by the time we get out of bed :) great multitasking lol sleeping and getting the washing done! I have also used the 10min time delay even tho I originally thought I would not need to, I put the clothes in with the 10min time delay and go for a shower, I don’t need to remember to go start the machine, I can just keep on getting ready. Have used the 15min wash a couple of times, is great to get you out of a jam :) it’s also easy enough for my husband and two teenage boys to use :) another bonus! I am so glad we made the right choice this time as our last one I didn’t like at all, but this one I love!

    Perfect for those extra special items

    I am fortunate enough to have an extremely talented mother who has dedicated an enormous amount of her time into knitting, crocheting and sewing garments out of very delicate fabrics for my four little ones. As well as a wonderful mother in law, who as a well experienced professional dressmaker, creates the most beautiful princess dresses for my little girl which are so unbelievably detailed that they look incredibly like the dresses seen in Disney movies.

    The countless amount of hours, not to mention the painstaking work involved when dealing with such intricate detail only add to the beauty and sentiment of each piece.

    To ensure the greatest care is taken when washing these particular items I usually hand wash them myself. Often a very time consuming task, albeit worth it for peace of mind knowing that the garment will not be ruined in the wash.

    After over five years of hand washing, I no longer have to wash these items myself. The ‘hand wash’ cycle on the Fisher and Paykel WashSmart Front Loader actually is gentle enough to wash these garments with the highest amount of care.

    I am so relieved and incredibly pleased to be able to use the ‘hand wash’ cycle with the confidence that not only will the machine be gentle with the items, but actually get them thoroughly clean at the same time.

    Yet another huge time saving feature for me, as well as absolute peace of mind.

    Sometimes it's just the little things that make a big difference

    With the wet weather which we have been experiencing over the last few days I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to run a drum clean as well as empty the filter. Both of which were well overdue.

    I know that they aren’t terribly exciting features of any Front Loader, but I thought it was important to mention the incredible ease at which both operations can be performed.

    It’s just nice to know that both necessary functions which should be performed on a regular basis can be done without any complexity. Both are very straight forward, and I feel that due to this added ease of operation it isn’t something that one would dread having to do.

    Sometimes it truly is just the little things in life that make a big difference. I can see that Fisher and Paykel have put a great deal of thought into every aspect of this amazing front loader.

    Wet weather is no longer a bother

    Up until now I have been able to dry my families’ clothes successfully on two lines of rope tied in our backyard. After starting the Fisher & Paykel WashSmart Front Loader Review I had to add another line of rope to be able to meet the amount of clothing which I am able to wash in the space of a day.

    It is safe to say that we are going to need to invest in a clothes hoist as soon as possible as I am finding new ways to get the most out of my Front Loader. For example, using the time delay feature I am able to set the machine of an afternoon at around 6pm for it to start at 6am the following day (the time delay feature goes up to 12hours). Throughout the evening if I do come across anymore items of clothing which needs to be placed into that wash, I can still do so thanks to the ‘pause’ feature.

    This means that I am able to set and forget the front loader and in the morning I have a load of washing to hang. Even greater, by using the ‘wrinkle free’ option, even if on a Sunday we happen to sleep in, the WashSmart has such innovative technology that it will continue to cycle the clothes every 15minutes so as to keep the clothes free of wrinkles.

    It just feels wonderful to be ahead of at least one duty around the home and it truly does give you so much more time in your day.

    With the cold and rainy weather we have been having recently it has really made me realise how much I can get done during clear weather. Of course I still wash clothes on cold and rainy days, as a family of six I need to. It’s much smaller loads though as our clothes airer can’t hold too large of a load, and by spinning the clothes at 1400rpm the clothes dry perfectly indoors, and much faster than they would usually if not using such a high spin speed.

    One thing that used to really be a bother during wet weather was the time it would take to dry necessary items of clothing indoors- without them taking so long to dry that they retain a damp odour. I love that this is no longer a concern for me and I am just so grateful for being given the opportunity to review this amazing Fisher & Paykel WashSmart Front Loader.

    Post holiday washing no longer a nightmare

    Home from holidays and everything felt damp and humid so I emptied 3 suitcases and sorted them. I quickly had the girls pink and purple stuff on for washing. Grubby, wet and stinky kids clothes that hadn’t been washed in a machine for 2 weeks. I chose the everyday cycle but put the temp up and the soil level. Pleased to say those clothes look and smell great again. I then put on a load for timer so that this morning I could wake up to another load ready to be hung out. I’ve only been home for less than 24 hours but all the washing is done!! 6 loads!! I absolutely love the add a garment as I regularly find something in the wrong pile or dropped on the way. This is such an easy machine to use with so many variables I feel my clothes are always clean and gentle even on an everyday cycle for clothes I previously would choose delicate. Here is a photo of part of the washing I have been working my way through.

    15 mins quick cycle a saviour

    Before we went on a recent holiday I had occasion to use the 15 min cycle. The kids sleeping toys seemed a bit grubby and I only realized the morning we were leaving. I had a few other bits so threw them in for a 15 min cycle. I didn’t have much time til we had to leave and needed to get them dry too!! I couldn’t believe it when the little white bunny was actually clean. And he smelled really good. We managed to get the sleeping toys cleaned and dried and packed by the time we were leaving! Thanks F&P for my new favourite function.

    I now have so much more time in my day!

    Since starting my Fisher and Paykel WashSmart Front Loader review one of the best things it has brought into my life is time. I am noticing that I feel less overwhelmed by the amount of work that there is to get through in a day simply because I have more time on my hands.

    Firstly, with the ability to run a “SuperQuick” wash I am able to get a quick lightly soiled load washed and ready to hang in roughly fifteen minutes. It’s perfect for things like pyjamas, you can throw them in at breakfast and have them washed, hung and dry by dinner.

    Although it is such an extremely fast wash, the clothes do come out perfectly fresh, clean and in excellent condition. The extra speed does not adversely affect the garments in any way, it is still gentle on all fabrics.

    Even if it isn’t the warmest of days, because of the 1400rpm the clothes leave the front loader incredibly spun and dry extremely fast, which again is another time saver.

    * it takes less time to wash the clothes

    * it takes less time to dry the clothes

    * it actually gives you more time in your day

    I am not really a very organised person, and I often forget to do certain things even if it is a task I perform so regularly that it should simply be routine. For example, my husbands weekend shirts. There have been countless times where Friday will come along and I will hear my husband ask me “Rochelle do you know where my weekend shirts are?”

    Of course I know where they are! They are right there in the dirty clothes basket… But of course I don’t actually admit to the exact location. Now there isn’t really a worry. Even if I leave it until Friday afternoon I can still have them washed and air dried indoors in under eight hours.

    Whilst on the topic of forgetting things, I simply cannot praise the ‘add a garment’ feature enough. It is truly wonderful! Of course I am going to forget items. Even if I don’t forget an item someone is guaranteed to spill something on themselves whilst a wash is running and I am able to pop it straight into that wash without having to leave it until he next one.

    I love the amount of extra time this experience has given me and I am truly grateful to everyone at Mouths of Mums and Fisher and Paykel for giving me this life changing opportunity.

    True to their word

    “You know that washing mashing you are reviewing Rochelle? Well there is NOTHING like it on the market. It has a one of a kind motor and something like 30 patients pending…”

    My husband is a man of few words. So when he came home from work and informed me about how amazing he thought the Fisher and Paykel WashSmart Front Loader is I was really very surprised. I was impressed that he had taken the time to do his own research on the machine.

    He has always been enthusiastic about motors. If something has a motor he always tends to do research on how good the motor is. After all the motor is what drives the device so I guess if it’s as amazing as the rest of the product features then you know you are getting an exceptional machine.

    I believe that in life all you really have to go by is your word, in the case of companies occasionally they over commit on their product features or become over enthusiastic about slight advancements. This is definitely not the case with the Fisher and Paykel WashSmart front loader.

    When they say that their “WashSmart Front Loader utilises their SmartDrive technology to eliminate the belt drive, delivering the ultimate clothes care. Using their direct drive motor this washer is whisper quiet. A revolutionary Vortex wash gets clothes cleaner faster.” They actually mean it.

    The clothes are definitely washed faster, but they are also cleaned much better with this new technology. In fact I tested this out by not using stain remover spray on my husbands business shirts simply to see what results I would get. The WashSmart definitely delivered. I was just so impressed that I showed my dad what an amazing difference there is.

    I have been using the Fisher and Paykel WashSmart for two weeks now and I can say with great confidence that the WashSmart delivers the results that Fisher and Paykel describes. In fact it has truly exceeded my expectations and is an absolutely wonderful appliance.

    Not a great deal of devices impress my husband or my father in the way that the Fisher and Paykel WashSmart has. It is simply technology at its best.

    Loving it!

    Did my video review on Thursday and then did 4 loads of washing! What a machine! Quick cycle for the gym gear and it still came out smelling great! I also tried a handwash cycle and it too was great. Gentle yet the slight stain from the kids came off my brand new cotton/cashmere top! And that add a garment function is almost a regular. If only I could remember to check all the spots for dropped clothes I wouldn’t need it. I got rid of the old clunker this weekend as I just know this machine is really perfect for our family. Thanks Fisher and Paykel and Mouths of Mims for letting me review this machine. I will try hubbies shirts next. The last machine made such a tangled mess of them I started taking the shirts to the laundromat… let’s see what this one can do.

    Thanks to all the reviews!

    My 17 year old washing machine blew up recently. So after a quick look around and comparisons, I whittled the list of possible machines down to a few. Then I saw that the Fisher Paykel Washsmart 8.5kg front loader was the machine that was reviewed here on Mouths of Mums. It shot to the top of my list based on the fantastic reviews by the testers, and the willingness of Fisher Paykel to put their machine out there for such market testing. We were able to go and pick up the machine from Harvey Norman, installation was a breeze (and my husband likes to think that he is handy – usually not so! ), and it is a great washer! So quiet, lots of setting options, and all that I needed in a machine.

    wow havent times changed.

    My daughter in law has one of these with the new front loaders doing the washing and drying all in one. It was on my christmas list but i did not get one. Maybe next year. Love the child lock on the front door too. Little fingers cant open them. Also compact and saves space in the laundry.

    Love love love the add a garment feature

    After reading MoM reviews I decided on purchasing the fisher & pay keel washsmart front loader….. Best decision ever made.
    I have never owned a front loader before and was so used to adding in that forgotten sock into my old top loader but with the add a garment feature on the washsmart it is never a problem.
    I also love how quiet this machine is, luckily it beeps when the cycle has finished so I know it’s done.
    One of the other main features that I love is the cycle count down, I can easily sees how long is left for the wash cycle so I know weather to wait the 2 mins to hang it out before leaving the house.
    I would definitely recommend this washer to others looking at purchasing a new machine.
    I had decided I wanted to go with a front loader this time so that I could add cupboards and bench top to my laundry to allow for extra space for folding clothes etc and this washer as been the perfect fit for our laundry and family!

    Love Fisher & Paykel

    I’ve tried the Simpson machines and after converting to Fisher & Paykel I couldn’t be happier. With advanced functionality, easy to use display and controls, and many features that are just perfect for my little family’s clothes. It’s a brand I trust to last the distance and I have yet to find a fault with the machine. Very happy and wish I converted earlier!

    The best front loader I've seen!

    The only fault I found it this machine is that it isn’t a top loader, ( I love to be able to put that last sock etc in at the last minute.) Great for smaller laundries but busy families.

    I love it!!

    So it’s been a couple of months now and I have only fallen more and more in love with this machine. 2 weeks ago a vomiting bug went through our household – myself and 3 out of 4 kids. The 2-year-old in particular went through almost my entire linen closet of sheets and towels in one night! And the next day, the good old Washsmart lived up to all expectations, and I managed to clean the whole lot in one day! I counted 9 loads in the end, including 2 doonas, 2 pillows, several stuffed animals, mattress protectors, sheets, towels, pyjamas, you name it, I washed it!!

    So yes, overall I have been nothing but impressed every step of the way so far with this washing machine. Being a large family of six, we are never short of things to wash, and the Fisher Paykel Washsmart does it all. It is quiet enough to run overnight, quick enough to do a load before school, and I feel like I am doing my bit for the environment by using such a highly star-rated appliance.

    I'm convinced

    So I listed my old top loader on Gumtree today. I guess that means I’m officially converted to the fisher & Paykel wash smart front loader! I spent my queens birthday public holiday catching up on washing. I washed and hung out 3 full loads. And then it started raining! I thought to myself “I’ll just leave it a bit, looks like it might just be a passing shower”. 3 hours of torrential down pouring later and I discovered the spin cycle program on the washing machine! Now I just have to finish it all off on the dryer and pray that the school uniforms will be ready for the morning!!

    Apart from today’s episode, I am slowly discovering all of this machine’s sneaky tricks! It’s great. I have my cabinet makers coming this week to finish fitting out my new laundry. I hope to get a work bench fitted over the top of my new machine and existing dryer. Will post a picture when it’s all pretty and complete!

    the short 15 load is brilliant

    I am in australia with my daughter and top loading machines are a fairly new thing to me. I love them for the big loads they take, I wish I had had one when my son had a problem with bed wetting.
    My top loader does do a short wash, but not a short as 15 mins, but I guess it is all part of something new…

    i am interested that you can open the machine to add a forgotten item, what happens if the water level is over. the door……….i have a few memories of that.

    Wet weather is no longer a bother

    Up until now I have been able to dry my families’ clothes successfully on two lines of rope tied in our backyard. After starting the Fisher & Paykel WashSmart Front Loader Review I had to add another line of rope to be able to meet the amount of clothing which I am able to wash in the space of a day.

    It is safe to say that we are going to need to invest in a clothes hoist as soon as possible as I am finding new ways to get the most out of my Front Loader. For example, using the time delay feature I am able to set the machine of an afternoon at around 6pm for it to start at 6am the following day (the time delay feature goes up to 12hours). Throughout the evening if I do come across anymore items of clothing which needs to be placed into that wash, I can still do so thanks to the ‘pause’ feature.

    This means that I am able to set and forget the front loader and in the morning I have a load of washing to hang. Even greater, by using the ‘wrinkle free’ option, even if on a Sunday we happen to sleep in, the WashSmart has such innovative technology that it will continue to cycle the clothes every 15minutes so as to keep the clothes free of wrinkles.

    It just feels wonderful to be ahead of at least one duty around the home and it truly does give you so much more time in your day.

    With the cold and rainy weather we have been having recently it has really made me realise how much I can get done during clear weather. Of course I still wash clothes on cold and rainy days, as a family of six I need to. It’s much smaller loads though as our clothes airer can’t hold too large of a load, and by spinning the clothes at 1400rpm the clothes dry perfectly indoors, and much faster than they would usually if not using such a high spin speed.

    One thing that used to really be a bother during wet weather was the time it would take to dry necessary items of clothing indoors- without them taking so long to dry that they retain a damp odour. I love that this is no longer a concern for me and I am just so grateful for being given the opportunity to review this amazing Fisher & Paykel WashSmart Front Loader.
