Front Loader Washing Machine, 8.5kg WashSmart™
This Fisher & Paykel 8.5kg front loader washing machine has a large capacity for family sized loads and cares for every fabric type with 13 wash cycles.
- SmartDrive™ technology for a quiet and reliable wash
- 13 wash cycles including Allergy, Handwash and SuperQuick
- Add a Garment function allows you to add items mid cycle
- 4.5-star water and 4-star energy rating
Our world-first SmartDrive™ technology combines smart electronics and a direct drive motor that connects to the wash drum directly, controlling tumble & spin action for a quieter, more reliable wash.
SmartDrive™ uses a direct drive motor removing the need for belts, pulleys and the traditional block designed to hold down the machine. Without these heavy components, there are less vibrations for a quieter wash.
Add a Garment
Missed an item from your wash? Our Add a Garment function allows you to pause your wash cycle, open the door and add or remove items, then carry on washing.
Quick wash cycles
Vortex Wash speeds up the cleaning process so most cycles take less than an hour to complete. During the tumble action, water is forced from the bottom of the drum up through your clothes so detergent and heat reach your fabric faster.
Easy to use
This machine has a cycle to suit every load type including delicates, sportswear and woollens. Select a cycle with the easy to use SmartTouch™ control dial.
Our front loaders can be installed with both hot and cold water inlets allowing for better energy efficiency and quicker wash cycles. Cold water can be heated within the washer or hot water can be drawn directly from your plumbing.
A liquid dispenser ensures detergent is distributed at exactly the right time in the cycle to optimise wash performance.
