If I'm not mistaken, the F&P dryers are made by GE with just some cosmetic changes. I don't know anyone using one of their washers to know how they perform.

I've had a Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive washer since August 1999. This is an older model than the current EcoSmart, and does not have the detergent spray action that is featured on the EcoSmart. I've had no trouble with the machine. The 1000 RPM spin is great, I can dry a set of queen-size sheets in less than 15 mins.

The F&P dryer sold in the U.S. is manufactured by a Canadian company that also makes dryers for GE, so they are of the same basic design. I have no complaints about the dryer, other than that I wish it had fully electronic controls like the washer.

F&P is supposed to be bringing a new top-loading dryer to the U.S. sometime in 2004, and a new washer as well.

JFYI. It is Camco (GE's Canadian subsidiary) which makes the dryers for F&P and GE USA.

Besides being a very attractive and trendy dishwasher it is by far the biggest pile of excrement I have ever purchased. Read the other reviews about this dishwasher. If you get one piece of food in the drain it just stops working. I have had this happen 8-12 times in two years and have had the "brain" replaced as well. Each time the repair bill comes to 300-400 bucks. Anyone who tells you this is a good dishwasher can be considered an unreliable source... I am going to rip this thing out tonight and I'm going to buy a German dishwasher, at least I know German engineering is good. The engineers in New Zealand have had to been drinking on the job when they designed this waste of plastic..(a little bit of metal).


Dont ever buy a Fisher Paykel Product, You'll be sorry.. do some research

The OP was asking about *clothes* washers and dryers, not dishwashers.
