The modern laundry is more than just a functional work zone. It should also be a beautifully designed and considered space too. With the new laundry range Fisher & Paykel have considered not just the need for improved functionality with regards to steam cleaning and de-wrinkling, but also the need for matching appliances that are not only beautiful to use, but also designed to match, so that the laundry space need not be hidden away.
What’s so special about the new Fisher & Paykel laundry range?
COMPLETE FABRIC CARE
The new range is formulated with fabric care in mind, to allow consumers to wash their most cherished garments without worry. Their new washing machines are crafted to meet the unique needs of every fabric.
This new machine WH1260F2 has 14 wash cycles including Sports, Allergy and Wool, with extra wash options such as Soak and Time Saver.
ActiveIntelligence™ Technology automatically optimises the cycle by adjusting the wash time and auto-dosing detergent to suit the level of soil
Intuitive controls with clever washing hints help consumers get the best results. The LCD display is easy to use and provides a simple interface to select from 14 wash cycles; including Wool, Allergy, and Quick 30. The specially-designed cushioned drum provides a gentle, effective washing action, protecting clothes while delivering an optimal wash performance.
Also introducing the Steam Refresh cycle, which is perfect for de-wrinkling clothes and reducing odours without the need for a full wash cycle. The new OptimiseWash options Eco, Speed and Quiet that sit alongside wash cycles such as Hygiene and Silk.
Fisher & Paykel have included WiFi capability for regular software updates, so this washing machine is always up to date, and they have now added Auto-dose mode that dispenses just the right amount of liquid detergent based on the size of the load, with the added convenience of not needing to fill the dispenser for every wash.
The best program by far is the Quick 30 minute wash. When time is short, a consumer can select a quick 30 minute wash without compromising cleaning and fabric care. The unique Vortex Wash allows most cycles to take less than 1 hour to complete. Water is forced from the bottom of the drum, so detergent and heat reach the clothes faster, cleaning quickly and avoiding over-washing.
WASH LARGER LOADS
The large 12kg drum can wash both small and large loads as well as bulky items like a king-size feather duvet. The wide door opening makes it easy to load and unload. The benefit of a large capacity is time saving, as a full week’s laundry can be done in just a few loads.
A QUIET, RELIABLE WASH
SmartDrive™ uses electronic feedback from the direct drive motor to intelligently adjust the wash action for better fabric care. There are fewer moving parts for a reliable, quiet and efficient wash.
HEALTH & HYGIENE
Health and hygiene are core drivers of Fisher & Paykel’s approach to product design. Since 1934 F&P have been designing laundry innovations that have resulted more effective wash cycles and functions , but also provided noticeable improvements for those with sensitive skin conditions. The new steam refresh program gently heats clean water and freshens clothes without the need for detergents.
