I'm going to miss this

 

I have this machine, and everyone told me I would love it. I bought the set. Within the first year the pump broke, and the biggest problem is that all the parts have to be shipped to you. I am so glad I got the extended warranty. I just recieved a gift...

We Love Ours

 

I bought my fisher and paykel back in early September 08.  We run our home off a propane generator and a solar system.  I always had to do laundry with the generator.  Now I don't, The FP is one of the only HE washers that will operate off solar system...

Uses only 7 amps, solar compatible.  Direct drive motor, efficient. Makes cute beeping

None so far. But will report any I find

Save the planet while doing your laundry!

 

I love my Fisher and Paykel washing machine, but then I'm probably biased as it's the type I grew up with (being that I'm from NZ originally). I love the fact that it is so energy and water efficient!

Energy efficient, water efficient and great at getting your clothes clean

I've heard parts are hard to get hold of

Unreliable--failed twice in less than 4 years

 

Failed to drain twice in 3 1/2 years. It took over 3 weeks to get it fixed the first time it failed. Repairman did not have the repair parts (not a common model) and then parts were not readily available.

High RPM spin cycle nearly dried the clothes for your

Unreliable. Long repair time. Repair parts not readily available. High cost to repair

Don't waste your money or your time!

 

We needed a large washer,we spent a lot of time in research. We thought we'd found a real gem. WRONG... Within six months we had multiple issues with(too many suds). It doesn't indicate in our manual that you must use an H.E. detergent. Well, you'll...

Got Kids? You'll love this washer!

 

Must say this little machine has really impressed me! We purchased this unit awhile back, when I blew the transmission seal out of our newer Maytag. Being the third washer to meet it's fate at my hands in a period of 5 years, we decided to give...

Great machine all around, uses much less water & electric, compact and light-weight

Can no longer use the washer to felt projects, No other complaints about this item

Consumer review by:

So Far, pretty impressed!

 

Well, our 20 year old washer died and we went over to Lowes to see what was out there. We found the Intuitive sitting next to a front loader Whirlpool.. Anyway, we don't have the room for front loaders in our laundry room, so it ruled out the better...

Many features, physically light, MANY FEATURES

Potential Lifespan Issues, not much else negative to say

Don't even think about buying!

 

I bought this machine October 1, 2006 and it died on me today 7 short months later. The tub inside is tilted to one corner and is unusable. That's not even the worst part! Quite the story in just trying to get this thing serviced.

Good when it works

Near impossible to get serviced

Consumer review by:

Great washer (and dryer)

 

We were looking for a lot more capacity than our old Whirlpool gave us. Although the Whirlpool was a workhorse that gave us many years of good use (and still works very well), it simply did not have enough capacity for my family of five. In addition we...

Very efficient, relatively quiet, high capacity, multiple settings, doesn't take up

Very basic appearance

Fine washer with the funny name

 

Fisher and Paykel is not widely known or available in the US, but it is generally available at the Lowe's warehouse stores.

Energy Star saving both electricity and water. Burst proof hoses included. Space saving

Parts availability. (not yet needed, but hard to find on-line)
