What is SmartDrive™?

SmartDrive™ Technology

Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive™ washing machines use our world first direct drive technology, which has revolutionised clothes washing and clothes care since the 1990s. 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. This two way communication allows SmartDrive™ washers to sense and respond to each load in an intelligent way providing exceptional clothes care.

Quick Vortex Wash Cycles

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. This is like an explosion in the midst of the tumble action which thrusts the sudsy water from the bottom of the drum into and through the clothes. By getting the cleaning agents and heat into the fibres of the clothes quicker the clothes get clean quicker.

Whisper Quiet

Whisper Quiet

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.

SmartTouch™ Control Dial

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.

Add a Garment

Add a Garment

The ‘add a garment' option allows you to quickly add or remove a garment mid cycle.

Energy Water Efficiency

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.

Hot and Cold Fill

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.
