EASY TO USE. GREAT RESULTS

published

I purchased my washing machine after lots of research. I found the price for the quality and size of the product to be the main draw card but the option to add items to a load that has already started, completely won me over.
The results i find are fantastic especially with 2 sporty kids. I love the Quick wash option as you get a great clean in 1/2 an hour and the fact that it heats the water within the machine rather than using the hot water tap (if you chose a hot wash) i find is a great function. I don't even have the machine connected to the hot tap!!!
Highly recommend and have done so to family and friends already.

Purchased in April 2017 at The Good Guys for $800.00.

Short lifespan, no support

published

Was whisper quiet when we first purchased but after about 3 years started to make a horrible noise on spin, F&P wanted around a $120 just to check plus whatever the replacement parts/labour would be. Its now just gone 4 years and the main bearing is failing, so loud you can't watch TV at the other end of the house and leaving a grease stain on clothes. I spoke with F&P and they basically said too bad, so sad. I accept that it's out of warranty but I got 9+ years out of our old cheapy Simpson front loader. 3 to 4 years is just plain poor but F&P seem to think that's acceptable.

Purchased in April 2015 at The Good Guys Physical store for $799.00.

Perfect for my need

published

I know it's been discontinued, but if you get this from good 2nd hand or refurbished. It's a great deal.
This is the first front loader washing machine that I have. I love it, I can wash from pillows to queen quilts..it's perfect for me to wash all of them. And it's save water to I just using it for 30 minutes wash.
Quiet, it's ok...it's not bother me...it's a normal sound

Great product and service

published

This is a very good washing machine. Clothes always come out clean even on a heavy wash. It is very gentle on your clothes. Many different washing options and spin speed options. Also has a wash boost option for heavily soiled washes. This machine is very quiet throughout cycle also. I would recommend this machine.

Error 105 - Has been behaving badly for some time and now is dead.

published

The customer support and technician have been very helpful but after 4 visits, replacing the lock twice and both the front and back controller boards. The washer is still not working.
This is less than 15 months old.

Now I would like a refund or a replacement with a better model washing machine that does not try auto balance and extend the cycle or just not spin at the selected spin cycle speed leaving the load wet.

Not cool. I was not asked what I would like to do and the support rep on the phone said he cannot change this because a replacement of the same model has been authorised. Funny how they have stock of a discontinued model.

Great washing machine

published

Really quiet washing machine.
Lots of programs for all needs.
It's great to be able to pick the spin speed and temperature for each program.

The only bad thing is that it tends to leak when there's almost nothing in the wash (a pillow or a bath mat).

Apart from that there's no issue

Great little front loader

published

Had a problem with ours after 6 months when it nearly shook itself apart due to an unbalanced load which dislodged one of the barrel support rods. Probably our fault rather than the machine's. The F & P techo was great, on time, left the job neat & tidy and gave us some good advice about loading the wash. It hasn't missed a beat since. Would absolutely recommend this machine (or rather its replacement model) for its quietness and performance - and the manufacturer for after sales service.

Spin doesn't work

published

Same issue as lady mentioned above... crazy spin cycle... gets down to spin stage and then skips minutes .... doesn't spin as an option on its own... and customer service said to change washing powder or use vinegar... and said no one had complained of this before!!! Technician came and said there was nothing they could do... will still try to resolve ...

Date PurchasedMar 2016

Not happy

published

I purchased this machine in March 2016 and have had the repairman out 3 times since then. Every so often the machine will get to either 11 or 8 mins left on the count down and will then just tumble the clothes instead of going into the spin mode. I was told to change my washing powder (BioZet) as they hadn't heard of it and maybe it was too sudsy, they also said to use vinegar in the fabric softener compartment. I changed washing powder but refuse the use the vinegar and it still happens. Today they changed a computer board at the back so I am waiting to see if this makes any difference.

I received a question about water coming out of a tap connection (not the tap itself) - I made a couple of suggestions and then recommended to contact a plumber. Actually, a general handyman may be a cheaper option...

DON'T EVER BUY THIS MACHINE

published

This washing machine is a complete dud. Will not go past 8 minutes to go and then 3 minutes to go, no matter which cycle you use. So a 30 minute cycle takes up to an hour and that is with me constantly readjusting the clothes and even having to wring out the sheets and towels by hand. Technician came out and said I use to much detergent and they are just too smart these days !!. Changed to liquid and no improvement what so ever. It is very frustrating to say the least.

How to shrink your best woollens

published

This washer works very well - last 2 front loaders were the same manufacturer.
However as winter was starting when I bought it I decided to wash all our woollens as I have done in all previous machines and as this machine setting has a delicate but not wool (something I did not realise at the time of purchase) I set it carefully to make sure all was OK and ended up after 2 loads realizing that I had effectively ruined conservatively about $500 + worth of jumpers - some matted and all shrunk. This is poor form as this company has produced machines that I have used for years that have NEVER done this. Be warned. Dryclean or hand wash your woollens - I am too scared to wash delicate items.

QuickSmart WH7560J2 (7.5kg)

My WH7560J2 was giving the error code 37, checked pump/filter and filter and cleared. Now when turned on, the control panel will not allow the washer selector to move from the cottons wash, and only makes a beeping sound when the selector is turned. Additionally, when a button is pressed, the only thing that happens is three quick beeps, with no change to the selection. Any help?
