What is SmartDrive™?

SmartDrive™ Technology

It takes a lot of brainpower to make things really simple. That, in a sentence, is the essence of SmartDrive™. Traditional washing machines are made up of many moving parts. Their complexity also means there's a lot that can go wrong with them. Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive™ machines are made of just three main parts: a small computer, a flexible agitator, and a simple direct-drive motor. This means washing machines that can sense each load, use less water and run with less moving parts.

Fabric Sensing

Fabric Sensing

Fabric Sensing is achieved using our flexible finned agitator; the computer measures the resistance of fabrics to specific agitator actions. It senses the average fabric mix and optimises the wash cycle for it, including water level, wash action, time and rinse. With just two button presses you get expert wash results. Clothes last up to 30% longer compared to a pre-2004 SmartDrive™ washer.

Eco-Active™ Wash

Eco-Active™ Wash

A small volume of warm sudsy water is re-circulated through the clothes in a cascade effect. Then after this "pre-soak", cooler water is added and it agitates to finish the wash. The Eco Active™ wash saves energy, but best of all it achieves a better clean.
