Fisher & Paykel are renowned for producing quality appliances that can be relied on for efficient and reliable performance. An excellent top-loading option, this washing machine delivers shorter cycle times and a 1000rpm spin speed, perfect for those in a hurry.


SmartDrive™ machines combine a small computer, a flexible agitator and a simple direct-drive motor in a brilliantly simplified arrangement: load sensing technology and fewer moving parts offering a more efficient performance. Meanwhile, SmartTouch controls enable brilliantly easy and intuitive command of six cycles: regular, heavy, delicate, wool, allergy and quick.


Built for convenience and the daily rigours of a busy household, it features a soft-close ABS plastic lid mechanism, preventing them from slamming and jamming. And Fisher & Paykel’s finned agitator works to ensure less tangling, thereby delivering great clothes care.

Quick Wash

For when you are in a hurry, faster washing cycles are available. Best suited for a small load of lightly soiled laundry.

Wool Program

Safely wash your delicate woollens with this tailored program designed to provide the highest level of care for your garments.

Smart Drive technology

Your Fisher & Paykel washing machine will sense the size of the load and what types of fabrics you're washing and then tailor the wash cycle to suit. This increases the energy and water efficiency of the machine.

    Washes really well

    We’ve had this machine for 3 weeks and are already in love. It’s quiet, easy to use, thorough, flexible, and looks good. The lid feels a touch flimsy but it’s a soft-close so doesnt really matter. Delivery was quick and the price from AO was excellent

    Fantastic wash results

    I have been using this for about 1 month and loving the results. Such a nice clean wash and and easy to operate. Finding the auto fill awesome for saving energy and $$. Gets a bit noisy when spinning but doesn't bother us.

    Reluctant purchase

    My Samsung machine was recalled and I purchased this machine as I only had a 60cm space. Despite it being a forced purchase I am extremely happy with this machine. It has performed well and has a good choice of washing cycles. This is the third purchase I have made with Appliances on line and their delivery guys are the best, quick and pleasant.

    No complaints at all about our new washing machine. It gives a great wash & is far quieter than our old F & P during the spin cycle.

    Easy to use

    I bought this washing machine in January. The service from Appliances on line was exceptional as for various reasons they had to make three deliveries but were so unquestioning and obliging and efficient. However I do find the machine too noisy in the draining and spinning cycles which is a bit disappointing.

    Easy to use

    I bought this machine a month ago and so far, so good. It's very quiet and easy to use and seems to have a clean lint free wash. I replaced an old Simpson that had the ability to skip through/shorten cycles with a control nob but this is not an option with the digital controls. I just leave this new machine on the default regular wash, shut the lid, press start and walk away (takes 47 mins), so I can't comment on any of the other functions. Appliances Online are great, they provided a fast service and the delivery guy installed and connected the washing machine.

    Good machine, lid seems flimsy

    I bought the machine a month ago, it was delivered very quickly. It’s a good machine, easy to use. It is very deep so may be hard for some to get to the bottom of, also the lid seems very flimsy when compared with my last Fisher & Paykel machine.

    Great Washing machine

    This has been a fantastic washing machine. Takes a while to get used to not having to clean the lint after each wash, but clothes all look great and machine is so quiet and quick compared to my previous one. Smart drive means that the machine is compact as well and am loving the extra space in the laundry.

    A bit too small

    I bought this recently but I'm disappointed with the size of the bowl, my old one was a 7`5 kg Fisher and Paykel and this new one is a 8`5 kg which should be larger than my old one but its not its smaller. I do not understand how I can go from a 7`5 kg to an 8`5 kg and have a smaller bowl. I thought I was going larger not smaller.

    Brilliant! Quiet, efficient

    We are so happy with our top loader which we ordered on a Thursday evening and it arrived by 10am the following morning! We’ve had front loaders for the past 10+ years and we’re glad we switched. This top loader is quiet, efficient and seems to clean our clothes better than any of our previous front loaders and in less than half the time. It’s so easy to use and the cycles are quick, our laundry is now always tidy and the laundry basket empty!

    Easy to use and great functions

    This machine has everything I need. It’s so simple and easy to use. I love the automatic water level function and delay start. It has a soak function - you cannot start a load and leave the lid up when the machine is full of water due to an in-built safety feature. As a parent of three small children this is a great feature. It is a quiet machine and cleans my clothes very well.

    Not perfect

    I bought this a month ago. Appliances Online were the best deal, included delivery and old machine removal. Installers did not do a good job. Did not level the machine and departed before the machine finished its first test wash. The machine failed the test using just water, went out of balance. Now leveled and works OK but the pump is noisy.

    Been using for a while now, handles normal loads with ease, cleans clothes well and doesn't break them (had issues with previous washers). Pretty quiet, and even the fast wash is good. One issue with it is the size. If you're regularly washing large (Queen) duvets, you'll have dramas with it pushing up the lid. I would have thought they'd fit. Apparently not. Works fine for blankets and towels, but my bamboo duvets seem to puff up in the wash. Odd.

    Wazzie 24 · 2018-10-15

    Great machine with great features

    Totally pleased with the Fisher and Paykel 8.5KG Washsmart machine. It runs so very quietly and the auto fill feature takes the guess work out of what water level to use. The machine automatically senses the load and fills to a level to give an effective wash. The 1000 rev per minute spin speed results in a much drier result at the end of the cycle. Wash cycles are pre-programmed, however, you can personalise the cycles to use different water temperatures and spin speed, plus you can also do a spin only. For anyone thinking of a new washing machine purchase, Fisher & Paykel has my recommendation.

    Almost Perfect

    I bought this unit almost a month ago. It is the third one that I have owned and at this time I think it could be the best except for one perceived fault. The previous models that I owned did not cause any electrical interference. This one does. I am aware of every stage of every cycle by the loud static that almost drowns out my radio in the morning. The pulsing of the agitator is quite distinctive from the variations in the spin cycles. I am unaware of any effect on the TV as I only wash in the mornings so that is not a concern for me. I complained to Fisher and Paykel and received an email response from "Paula" informing me that there were suppressors built in and therefore the problem was at my end and could be solved by obtaining a better signal. The signal is more than adequate and has never been a problem with any other device. I have been told by others that there are problems with the newer models of this brand of washing machines. The interference is the reason that I had to mark down the star rating for "Features" in my evaluation.

    Thoroughly recommended.

    I brought this about a month ago and am impressed. The main thing I like about it is I can programme it of a night before I go to bed. When I get up of a morning the washing load is done. Also this is convenient due to the cheaper time to use electricity i.e. 10p.m. - 7p.m.

    Good machine but lint filter is a real problem

    I am reasonably happy with the overall operation and performance of the Fisher & Paykel 8.5 WashSmart Top Load washing machine. My gripe is with the operation of the lint filter. When I used the machine for the first time I noticed a lot of lint gathering on dark coloured items in the washing machine. I first thought it was a tissue that had mistakenly gone into the washing machine but on closer inspection I realised this wasn’t the case. I read the instruction manual that indicated that there was an automatic lint filter that cleaned itself. I then went online to see if others were talking about this issue. Imagine my surprise when I saw MANY people were talking about the exact same problem. The solution was to purchase a separate lint filter for approx $45 and fit it to the machine. This filter is produced by Fisher & Paykel. For F&P to go to the extent of producing an external lint filter to fit to their machines, and then expect people to purchase this to make the machine operate correctly means the machine is not fit for purpose when it is sold. I find this totally unacceptable and disappointing. Unfortunately it has coloured my view of the washing machine and I would not recommend it to friends.

    I bought this a month ago and while it has taken me some time to adjust to a smaller load machine I am more than pleased with it. It is so quiet and washes well to boot!

    Bought this washing machine Fisher & Paykel WA8560G1 WashSmartâ„¢ 8.5kg Top Load Washing Machine. over a month ago NOT HAPPY. it has been made more compact which makes it more difficult getting large items in and out of the washing machine and it is deeper which makes it harder to reach right to the bottom for those elusive socks and nickers. Would not buy this again and the SERVICE SUPPORT FROM FISHER & PAYKEL IS Painful, rude and useless. This is not the same size as my last F&P washer don't care what they say and if I had seen it would never have bought it. I love my ONLINE APPLIANCES WEBSITE but hate this toploader.

    I bought this machine a month ago. The only thing I don't like about it is having to remove the filter to put the liquid in, plus that it only beeps a few times once the cycle has finished and if you don't hear it, you sometimes forget to empty it. Other than that, very happy.

    WashSmart better than AquaSmart

    I like the ability to choose the water level or use auto-fill. For some things, like sheets, more water works better. On my old AquaSmart (bought during the drought) there was only auto-fill and sheets were mangled. I like that most options are on the dash with no need to drill down the menu. I love the soak option! Most importantly the wash is a good result i.e. much cleaner and not mangled. The delivery, installation service was incredibly fast, efficiently and helpful. Machine was delivered next day! (In Wollongong!) Amazing! Previous reviews raved about how quiet the machine is. Well it is reasonably quiet but I don't think exceptionally so.

    Generally well satisfied

    Replaced a similar 10 year old 8.5kg F&P top loader which died just before Christmas when a burst hose connection filled the electronic control unit with water. I was extremely impressed with the way the logistics system of Appliances on Line delivered my new machine the day after ordering it; at a competitive price; and keeping me informed at every step along the way, including a final delivery time within half an hour and visual tracking of your truck coming through the streets to me. It was a hot day but there were no complaints about carrying the machine up a flight of stairs, setting it up, testing it, and taking away the old one with the packaging from the new one. The other main retailers could not sell me one before Christmas unless I was prepared to collect it myself and they often charged extra for taking upstairs, setting up, removing the packaging and the old one. Turning to the new machine: it is taller but narrower than the squatter previous one. In my case this smaller footprint unfortunately means because of its extra height, I have to shift it to fully open an access door to my roof cavity. The machine works as it should and probably uses a little less water than the 10 yo one. I like to use it to soak sheets by filling the bowl with water and bleaching powder but I haven't found a cycle yet that doesn't start by slightly filling the bowl and then pumping it out presumably to flush out any previous residue. It also locks the lid at more times making it harder to manually control for such purposes. This is nit picking. It seems well made, comparatively good value and washes the clothes well with an appropriate range of cycles. After just over a month I'm a well satisfied customer .

    Quiet Achiever!

    We have only had our new F.P. 8.5kg top load washer for a month or so and could not be happier with it's performance so far. Due to back problems, we changed from a front load M/C to a top load. We liked the front loader's minimal use of water, but the new washer allows us to vary the amount of water according to the wash size, so not much more water used. No more back problems, items are easily reached and they come out much cleaner than our old washer. We cannot believe how quiet it is, for the first few washes having to open the laundry door to make sure it was still washing. Quiet, stable, easy to use, flexible control of water level, water temp. and wash times - we are delighted with our "Quiet Achiever" and incidently, amazed and delighted with the service from Appliances On-Line.

    Thrilled with our purchase

    Our wonderful Fisher & Paykel washing machine died and after the funeral we upgraded to their new bells and whistles model. It is fab. So much better than the upmarket expensive European brand we bought for our city pad. Fab service too - thank you

    My Review

    I am pretty happy with my new washing machine.... although, at this stage I have a couple of regrets. I have had to change to liquid cleaner washing. In my previous machine I could put the powder in a small amount of water IN the machine, and agitate it to dissolve it before adding the clothes for washing cycle. Powder is much cheaper than liquid, and I can't be bothered mixing and dissolving it by hand before putting it in. I like my machines to do everything for me, Also, I could soak the whites over a night or two before adding the coloureds and doing the wash cycle. This is not feasible in this machine as it only allows for a few minutes of soaking.

    Easy features on dash

    I bought my Fisher and parkyl washing machine and I'm so pleased with it. One of the best features i like is the adjustment on the spin cycle, how you can adjust the spin to suit the wash, and all the ease of all the other adjustments, you only have to pause and the adjust.

    Great purchase

    It's been over a month since purchasing this machine and I'm super happy. It's water efficient, love the long soak cycle, quiet and large. Initially I was questioning the small amount of water used and whether clothes would be thoroughly washed - No issues at all. Great communication with staff and installation was quick and easy. A very happy customer.

    Another good machine from Fisher & Paykel

    I bought this machine to follow in the steps of my earlier model, and thus far have not been disappointed. The greatest plus for these machines is their fast spin cycle which spins the clothes almost dry. I have not known another brand to achieve such thorough drying, and if you compare the speed of various washers you'll find F&P are by far the fastest. They do that without excessive noise, which is a bonus.

    Great washer, simple to use.

    This is the second F&P top loader we have owned, the first one lasted for 17 years, and was still working when replaced. The new washer does a great job, however we would highly recommend purchasing the lint filter as an optional extra.

    Great machine

    Upgraded my 15 year old F&P to a new one. Bigger on the inside, smaller on the outside. Simple to use, so far so good!

    Very happy with this washer.

    My old F & P 7.5 kg top loader died after about 15 years. I was so impressed with the trouble-free service from this machine that I was pretty confident to go again with F & P. The positive reviews on this site for the WA8560G1 confirmed my decision. In the last month the new washer has performed as expected - flawlessly.

    F & P

    Bought a F & P washing machine to replace my old noisy unreliable washer. So far this new washer has been excellent. Extremely quiet, water efficient, and cleans clothes well. Great service, price, product. Thumbs up to Appliances Online.

    Re: Fisher & Paykel WA8560G1 WashSmartâ„¢ 8.5kg Top Load Washing Machine. So far this has been a terrific buy. Simple to use and seems to do the job effectively. No complaints after a month's use. The delivery guys arrived on time (or a few minutes early), were efficient, friendly and the removal service of the old machine was greatly appreciated!

    Compact and efficient!

    I bought a Fisher & Paykel washing machine 20 years ago and just had to replace it a month ago, with another Fisher & Paykel. This to my knowledge is the best product on the market. I just Love my washing machine.
