Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive™ washing machines use our world first direct drive technology, which has revolutionised clothes washing and clothes care since the 1990s. By combining smart electronics and a direct drive motor that connects directly to the wash drum, the need for a belt and pulleys is removed and the motor constantly provides feedback to a computer controlling the tumble and spin action. This two way communication allows SmartDrive™ washers to sense and respond to each load in an intelligent way providing exceptional clothes care.
Quick Vortex Wash Cycles
Fisher & Paykel have developed the Vortex Wash which speeds up the cleaning process so most cycles take less than an hour to complete. This is like an explosion in the midst of the tumble action which thrusts the sudsy water from the bottom of the drum into and through the clothes. By getting the cleaning agents and heat into the fibres of the clothes quicker the clothes get clean quicker.
SmartDrive™ technology uses a direct drive motor that removes the need for belts, pulleys and the traditional block of concrete to hold the machine down in spin cycle. Without these old components, SmartDrive™ washers are more reliable, produce less vibration and noise levels are reduced to a whisper quiet.

All of our products come with full warranties from the manufacturer. This means you can enjoy all the benefits of buying a brand new item – except at a clearance price!
The warranty period will vary from 1 to 5 years, depending on the manufacturer.
We have a 7 day DOA (dead on arrival) policy, which means that you are entitled to a full refund or exchange if the product is mechanically defective within the first 7 days of purchase (confirmed by the manufacturer).
The Appliances Online Customer Experience Team is dedicated to helping you with any after sales requests. If your new purchase ever needs any technical attention during the warranty period, all you need to do is give us a call and we will take care of the rest.
Customer Care Plans are available for all products. Care Plans are only available at the time of purchase. If you have purchased a Care Plan, we will pay for the parts, labour and service fees (where applicable) if your product suffers a mechanical or electrical failure subject to the terms and conditions set out in our Customer Care Plan brochure.
A separate Customer Care Plan must be purchased for each product that you buy from us. Your tax invoice will specify the period of cover. Your Customer Care Plan starts at the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty for your product.
To make a warranty claim, please contact the relevant manufacturer directly, or contact our Customer Service Liaison team on (02) 9694 0210. You will need your tax invoice when making a claim.
