Fisher & Paykel AquaSmart WL42T26DW1 3.1 cu. ft. Top-Loading Washing Machine Review
The Fisher & Paykel AquaSmart WL42T26DW1: a high-end washer with excellent stain removal performance.
Designed in New Zealand, the Fisher & Paykel AquaSmart WL42T26DW1 is as exotic as a Kokako bird in the US, where this washer's manufacturer has yet to become a household name (it's pronounced PIE-kel, not PAY-kel).
Found on sale for around $775, this Fisher & Paykel is best for those who want excellent stain fighting performance from a higher-end washer that's a little bit different.
In our scientific tests, it excelled at stain removal and ease of use. Its ten year motor warranty is also impressive, though not unprecedented. As for drawbacks, its overly-simplified control panel lacks a time display, dirt removal is subpar and the "AquaSmart" moniker is undeserved considering how much water this top-loader used.
