(More customer reviews)All the things I wish I was. Seriously, this replaced our 27 year old Kenmore. The Kenmore
was a workhorse, but the Fisher and Paykel is light-years ahead of it. No need to set the
water level, the machine figures it out (you can override it if you wish). No need to set
the wash temperature, it's done for you (you can change its default). Unbalanced load?
Machine takes care of it.
There's some serious technology here. They use a brushless DC motor to power the tub. Unusual,
considering there's AC right out of the wall. But this allows speed control without clutches or
pulleys, and since the motor is connected directly to the tub, there's no belt either. Energy Star?
At the end of the cycle, it spins amazingly fast, and the clothes come out significantly drier
than you'd expect. Less work for the dryer to do. We have yet to generate a load the machine
Needless to say, I'm impressed.
