This front loader 8.5-kilogram WashSmart machine is great for the typical Kiwi family, and here's why.
With an 8.5kg capacity, this front loader washing machine has a large capacity for family loads, but it is also versatile enough to wash every fabric type with 13 wash cycles. These cycles include Allergy, Handwash and SuperQuick.
How many times have you started a load of washing only to find you've forgotten to put something into the machine? This is a thing of the past in this model thanks to the Add a Garment function which allows you to add items mid cycle.
This Fisher & Paykel machine has a 4.5-star water and 4-star energy rating, which are important considerations in these environmentally-conscious times.
This SmartDrive machine uses a direct drive motor so there are no noisy belts, pulleys and the traditional block which holds down the machine. Without these heavy parts, the machine vibrates less and gives you a much quieter wash.
Vortex Wash really accelerates the cleaning process so most of the cycles take less 60 minutes to complete. During the tumble action, water is forced from the bottom of the drum up through your clothes so detergent and heat reach your fabric faster.
The liquid dispenser means that detergent is distributed at exactly the right time in the cycle to optimise wash performance.
