    If anyone hasn't purchased a new f&p appliance lately, expect horrible quality, with continual issues.
    Our house has had 4 f&p appliances that came with the house, and 5 years later we have had an issue with every product. We also had 2 f&p dryers for a business (same model) and both of them have broken (was a reasonably easy repair but also was a $44 fix on a 3 year old dryer)

    Haier owns around 90% of f&p, and use the same low quality parts as f&p appliances.

    so sad to see such a good company get ruined with poor quality crap, especially since we have an old deep freezer from f&p (around 40-50 years old) and it still runs perfectly without an issue.

      this is really interesting! I went to HN to buy a new washing machine, my wife was keen on the f&p WH8560P3 (pretty good reviews etc). the sales rep said for the same price try the Bosch or the LG, and was hinting the f&p was mid range and wasn't great. unless you are buying a Bosch with "made in Germany" on it (adding about $1000 to the price) its not made in Germany. As I was standing there a bloke walked in and said to another sales rep "show me the LG which won the consumer magazine tests" and it happened to be the one I was being shown. the bloke took one look at it and said il buy it and that was that. They price matched the LG lg wv9-1409w with the F&P and it was a done deal for me!

    • My Mechanical Engineering friends who went to F&P Appliances didn't like working there. They said the management sucks.

      But on the other hand F&P Healthcare (which is still NZ owned) I've only heard positive comments from my friends who are working there

      Very interesting. I've had a F&P washing machine for 20 years and it's working like it's only a day old. I bought a new F&P oven a couple of years ago, be interesting to see how long it lasts.

      As an aside, I've had an old Nouveau dishwasher in my house for the 8 years I've owned it plus however long it was in there before and it works well. Bit smelly though 😁
      Could make for a good thread, long lasting appliances.

      • I have a 20 year old F&P Smart Drive. It broke down last weekend with error 43. I had to spend $3.50 to replace a microswitch. All good now.

    Agreed, bought a F&P cook top a few years ago from Noel Leeming and the quality is so bad the surface scratched within a week, but i guess you get what you pay for.

    I also had a Bosch induction cooktop in my previous property had a major fault and cost $700 to fix.
    A 3 year old Miele dishwasher had a faulty flow meter, a $45 part cost the Miele contractors $300 to install.

  • We have been using Asko WM and dishwasher. And we found them really good. Have solid built.
    Obviously comes at a premium.

  • Any feedback on dryer types? Pros/cons of heat pump ones? I’ve never owned a dryer

      Condenser dryers also draw in air from the room and heat it up to dry the clothes in the drum, but they differ from a vented dryer in the removal method of the damp air. Instead of being drawn out of a vent, the wet air is directed to a condensing chamber inside the machine. Here, the moisture is condensed and collected in a container as water. The warm and dry air leftover is fanned back out into the room.

      A key benefit of condenser dryers is that they are self-contained, and do not need to be connected to an air vent. This means they can be placed in any area of a house or apartment, rather than needing to go near an exterior wall or window.

      With condenser dryers, the container that holds the moisture needs to be emptied after drying each load. This is usually a quick process that doesn’t cause issues for most people, but it is something to consider, as it’s important not to forget to do this after each use.

      Vented tumble dryers are a classic option that most people are familiar with. These dryers work by taking air from inside the room, heating it, and then running it through the drum where the clothes tumble. The hot, moist air is then expelled through an air vent or hose.

      Vented dryers are the most affordable option, so they will suit those on a budget. They are also very effective in terms of drying time, making them ideal for those who need their clothes ready fast.

      If you’re looking into a vented dryer, you need to consider placement carefully. These dryers need to either sit near a window or an external wall, so that the vent can blow air outside through the wall, or the hose can be placed out of the window to release the damp air outside.

      • Depending on the model condenser dryers can be connected to a drain so there is no need to empty the water after each use.
        I have an LG Condenser Dryer that has this ability.

        • Yep, that's how I've always run mine. Very convenient.

      • Container doesn't need to be emptied after each load. Typically 4 loads if doing towels and sheets, although I guess it depends on how good your washing machines spin function is.

      • I'm not saying what you described does not exist, but most condenser dryers have two separate air streams. The one going through your laundry stays in the machine. A second stream, pulled from outside the machine and also vented out again, is used to cool the element which cools the internal stream.

        That way the moisture stays trapped.

      Heat pump dryers use less power, but they take far far longer to run a cycle, and they never truly dry clothes. They would be suitable if you want to just do one load a day and leave it running all day while you're at work, then let the clothes finish air drying on a rack or your bed before putting away. One other benefit is there's basically zero chance of shrinking clothes.

      Personally I hate mine and will be switching back to a condenser dryer asap. It just doesn't fit my lifestyle where I need to do multiple loads per day, and I can't stand paying a lot of money for a dryer that doesn't actually dry my clothes. I have bought top end Bosch gear for years and have had very good experiences with them. The last Bosch condenser dryer I had could dry a huge load in about 90 minutes with no shrinkage. Their new top of the line heat pump dryer takes 6-9 hours and clothes still come out slightly damp. What's the point? I've talked to Bosch about it and they say it's just how the times are changing and people simply need educating on how to work their lifestyle around the dryer. Unbelievable.

      I highly suggest buying a condenser dryer while companies are still producing them.

      • Wow, I’ve never had a drying cycle take that long! For us a full load of washing (nearing 8kg) takes about 2-3 hours?

        I only do the washing when there’s a big load, pretty much filling my 8kg top loader to the brim. Chuck everything into the dryer after. The clothes definitely come out dry. Ours is a F&P heat pump dryer, about 5 years old.

      • dryer takes 6-9 hours

        Holy shit, what would this cost in terms of power?

        • Not much as the heat pump runs very efficiently.

    I have a Simpson vented dryer and it does exactly what it's supposed to. You just have to vent them outside, not in to the roof cavity. It costs about $1 per cycle to run so unless you do multiple loads each day you'll never see the cost benefit of paying 5 X as much for a heat pump dryer.

    Condenser dryers sound like a good idea to me as well. I'd check out a few reviews before spending the extra dollars first.

      This is exactly my thoughts and experience when looking at the cost versus benefit. It just doesn't make financial sense (to us); hence why we have a vented dryer. Simple, cheap and effective. But understand others use cases are likely to be different.

    • Don't have a good spot to run a vented dryer to outside. Got a condenser drier and the atmosphere in the garage is a lot nicer.
      It's amazing the amount of water that it collects.

      If I was able to vent directly outside I would do that.
