By combining smart electronics and a direct drive motor that connects directly to the wash drum, the need for a belt and pulleys is removed and the motor constantly provides feedback to a computer controlling the tumble and spin action.
WashSmart™ Front Loader utilises our SmartDrive™ technology to eliminate the belt drive, delivering the ultimate clothes care. Using our direct drive motor this washer is whisper quiet. A revolutionary Vortex wash gets clothes cleaner faster. In fact the majority of the 13 cycles when set to wash at a temperature 30°c or lower will complete the cycle in well under an hour.
What is SmartDrive™?
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.
SmartDrive™ technology uses a direct drive motor that removes the need for belts, pulleys and the traditional block of concrete to hold the machine down in spin cycle. Without these old components, SmartDrive™ washers are more reliable, produce less vibration and noise levels are reduced to a whisper quiet.
Quick Vortex Wash Cycles
Fisher & Paykel have developed the Vortex Wash which speeds up the cleaning process so most cycles take less than an hour to complete.
SmartTouch™ Control Dial
The SmartTouch™ Control Dial is your interface to SmartDrive™ Technology. It distils 21 years of SmartDrive development into a user-friendly interface, to deliver and expert wash every time through 9 and 13 pre-programmed wash cycles.
Hot and Cold Fill
Unlike many other Front Loaders ours can be installed with both hot and cold water inlets. This gives the option of cold water heated in the washer, or both hot and cold direct from the inlet, for better energy efficiency and quicker wash cycles.
Energy Water Efficiency
Our SmartDrive™ Front Loaders deliver a 4.5 star Water Rating as well as a 4 Star Energy Rating, making them one of the most efficient front loaders on the market.
