November 30, 2023 - 4 min read 

Are you one of the legions of Aussies who are turning their backs on fast fashion in favour of buying fewer but better-quality garments? Not only is ‘slow fashion’ easier on your wallet, it’s also kinder to the planet, with fewer clothing items winding up in landfill. But the question is: how can you make sure your clothes go the distance? Fisher & Paykel understands the value of premium garments and has created laundry appliances that are specifically designed to keep your clothes looking and feeling their best. Every fabric has its own needs for the best care. Fisher & Paykel laundry appliances are purposefully designed to deliver remarkable fabric care, regardless of the garment.

Fisher & Paykel Makes Life Easier

Fisher & Paykel washing machines are built to deliver remarkable fabric care that can help extend the life of your garments, from delicate items to durable ones and everything in between. With smart technology and tailored programs, these machines can handle everything from designer jeans and fine knits to school uniforms and special occasion outfits. So, you can be sure that your clothes are always kept in tip-top shape. Fisher & Paykel knows how important your clothes are to you, so they’ve designed laundry appliances that are specifically tailored to keep them looking and feeling their best. With every fabric requiring its own unique care, Fisher & Paykel washers and dryers are purposefully designed to deliver exceptional fabric care, no matter the garment. 
“As long-standing manufacturers of quality appliances, Fisher & Paykel is known for technology that makes life easier by helping you save time, effort and on running costs,” says Peter Simic, The Good Guys Buyer – Laundry.

 “Fisher & Paykel washing machines not only provide an excellent clean, but also give options that help you to care for all fabrics and preserve the qualities that we love in your garments. Think tailored washing programs for every fabric, and Steam Refresh to freshen clothing items between washes.”

Are you ready to invest in the care of your favourite pieces? Or maybe you’re looking to slash your dry-cleaning bill with do-it-all laundry appliances? Then it’s time to make Fisher & Paykel your new best friend in fabric-care.

“Fisher & Paykel washing machines deliver brighter brights and whiter whites, all while being gentle on clothes, making them last longer."

Smart Tech To Streamline Washday

At the heart of Fisher & Paykel washers is SmartDrive™, innovative sensor technology that provides accurate control, with the ability to change direction and speed of the drum gently to avoid damaging garments.

“SmartDrive tech is so impressive,” says Peter Simic. “It senses the load type as the cycle progresses, then sends the information to the motor’s computer to adapt the wash action and water level for each unique load, delivering the quickest and quietest wash, netting you savings on energy and water bills.”

Auto Dose For Easy Washing

What’s the easiest way to select the right amount of detergent for each load? Get your washing machine to do it for you! Fisher and Paykel washing machine front loaders such as the Fisher & Paykel 10kg Front Load Washer use Auto Dose to dispense the exact amount of liquid detergent required based on load size – resulting in less waste, less hassle and less detergent residue, with the added convenience of not needing to fill the dispenser for every wash.

“Auto Dose not only takes the guesswork out of measuring for each load, but also saves you from potentially damaging clothes with too much detergent,” says Peter Simic. “A drenching of detergent builds up as residue in the drum, and on your clothes.”

Save On Trips To The Drycleaners

Thanks to the fabric-friendly and deodorising Steam Refresh function, your Fisher and Paykel washing machine can bring lightly worn clothes & musty stored garments back to life without the need for a full wash cycle and give you the ‘dry clean’ effect at home! Steam Refresh uses steam instead of detergent and chemicals to freshen up your garments between washes – a fantastic alternative to costly dry-cleaning.

“Steam is the detergent-free way to refresh and deodorise clothes and can protect the shape and colour of your fabrics,” says Peter Simic. “The other bonus is less ironing because steam naturally and gently removes wrinkles.”

Fewer washes also mean less wear and tear on fabrics, so your clothes – and your bank balance – will last much longer.
