Love Your Laundry
The science of fabric care is a delicate balance – water, temperature, detergent, and movement come together to give the best results for delicates, durables and everything in-between.
Pair a washer powered by SmartDrive™ with the autosensing technologies of a Condenser dryer for the ultimate in fabric care.
The modern laundry is no longer just a functional work zone, it is beautifully designed and considered space featuring appliances that are styled to match and mirror one another both in aesthetic and in features.
Whether side-by-side, stacked, or distributed to suit your laundry space and patterns of use, these appliances are designed to be proudly on show.
The Science of Fabric Care
Different fibres wear for different reasons, so to truly care for your fabrics first means understanding them.
With so many clothing and fabric options available today, it can be difficult to know how each should be treated for the best results.
Fisher & Paykel laundry products incorporate more than 80 years of expertise and understanding in the nature of fabric fibres to remove the guesswork.
Customized to a wide range of fabric types, they intuitively sense the parameters of your load to deliver the cleanliness and care your garments demand.
Everything in balance
By customizing the measures of water, temperature, detergent, time and mechanical action, the wash cycle can be changed to meet the specific requirements of any fabric.
The best wash cycle not only cleans clothes exceptionally but also delivers the care needed to extend the life of garments, from delicates to durables and everything in-between.
Generations of expertise in washing have informed the specifications of our wash cycles – each developed and tested to keep your cherished clothes looking better for longer.
Warm water swells fibres, helping to release dirt particles so that the detergent and machine action can play a more effective role in the cleaning process. Gentle warmth under 90ºF is the perfect temperature to protect natural fibres such as wool.
Detergent molecules attach themselves to dirt, making them bigger, heavier and easier to wash away by the swishing and sloshing of the tumbled water.
Changes in speed, direction and water flows provide the agitation needed to shake loose dirt particles. An effective wash creates a ‘tumble drop’, where clothes fall from the top of the drum into the water below. This gentler action is perfect for synthetic fibres which require a more delicate wash.
Experience over generations
Fisher & Paykel has decades of expertise and pioneered innovative laundry technologies in the pursuit of the perfect wash.
This obsession with the detail is evident in every Fisher & Paykel washing machine.
The right balance and control over the acceleration and deceleration profiles at the right time helps to agitate the garments, opening the fibres to enable a proper clean
The rotational action promotes ‘tumble drop’ that helps to remove dirt before carefully considered spin speeds delicately extract moisture from the clothes without stretching.
Through this deep understanding of fabrics and fibres we have been able to create wash and dry cycles that are customized to care for even the most delicate garments.
Quiet and efficient direct drive motor technology that provides accurate control, with the ability to change direction and speed of the drum gently to avoid damaging garments.
Vortex Wash speeds up the wash cycle without compromising cleaning and fabric care by forcing water from the bottom of the drum, so detergent and heat reach your clothes faster.
The Steam function uses gentle, humid heat to open the weave of fibres, making for a more effective wash cycle.
The choices we make in our homes are a reflection of our own personal values. We choose products that are sustainably produced, ethically manufactured and that reduce our impact on the environment.
From the clothing we wash and dry, to the detergents we use and the appliances that we choose, the laundry is a deeply considered space – where decisions are made that demonstrate our commitment to the way we live our personal lives, and to the wider impact we have on the world around us.
These same considerations are woven through the fabric of Fisher & Paykel’s design ethos, with appliances crafted with care in mind – care for your garments, for the environment, and for the things that are important to you.
Through decades of product testing and refinement, Fisher & Paykel front load washing machines are both compact and powerful. With a wash capacity of 2.4 cubic feet – the equivalent of 18 bath towels in one cycle – weekly wash cycles can be reduced to save time, energy and water.
Time Saver Option
The Time Saver option activates a special temperature profile and unique tumble sequence that speeds up the wash, saving time without compromising performance.
A Quieter Wash
World-first SmartDrive™ Technology controls the tumble and spin action within your washer, minimizing vibrations and noise levels for a quieter wash that takes better care of your clothes.
Add a Garment
We know modern life is busy. The Add A Garment function allows you to pause the wash cycle to add any size items that may have missed the wash or remove those that accidentally made their way in.
Care in Every Detail
We believe great appliance design plays a vital role in delivering the best outcomes for your clothing and for the environment.
Perfect results in the laundry are those that give the best care for your garments while reducing our impact on the world around us.
These values are brought to life in every Fisher & Paykel laundry appliance through our focus on human-centred design.
Auto-sensing technology cleverly senses the moisture level within the drum, stopping the cycle at the right moment to prevent your clothes from under or over drying. This means clothing lasts longer and the appliance only uses as much electricity as needed.
Condensing technology removes water from the dryer into a tank or drain. This reduces moisture and allergens released into your home when compared with a front venting dryer. A healthier choice for allergy sufferers.
Designed to Match
Rigorous testing across a wide range of fabric and garment types informs the settings of our drying cycles. Each is customized to best suit the needs of specific fibres and materials, and designed to be used with the matching washing cycle of Fisher & Paykel washing machines.
Not all items that require drying benefit from a tumbling action. A custom-built dryer rack places your precious possessions such as sneakers, hats and soft toys at the centre of the drum for gentler drying.
