Our SmartDrive™ washers use our world first direct drive technology, which has revolutionised clothes washing and clothes and clothes care since the 1990s. By combining smart electronics with a direct drive motor, these washing machines can sense and respond to each load, delivering exceptional clothes care quickly and quietly.
Unique to Fisher & Paykel is 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 soapy water from the bottom of the drum into and through the clothes.
Our SmartDrive™ washers use our latest generation direct drive motors, removing cumbersome parts and improving our ability to sense what’s happening inside the drum. Without these old components Smartdrive™ Front Loaders are more reliable, produce less vibration, and noise levels during the wash are reduced to being whisper quiet.
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 an expert wash every time.
Our Front loaders are capable of diagnosing their own problems. A series of user warnings guide you to solve simple issues like “taps not on” or “overdosing detergent”. Should a more complex problem arise a series of fault codes will guide an authorised service person to a speedy solution.
Hot and Cold Fill
Unlike many others, our Front Loaders let you choose whether your water is heated in the washing machine or uses your hot water supply. You can connect to cold only and let the washer heat the water, or if you wish to use hot water from your supply, connect to both hot and cold. Depending on your hot water supply, this may be a more energy efficient option, and speed up the cycles.
