Electric Shock Hazard

Read and follow the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS outlined in this User Guide before operating this appliance, pages 9 – 11.

Failure to do so can result in death, electric shock, fire or injury to persons.

Please note: To obtain maximum efficiency, your Ecosmart™ washer has the ability to learn and adapt to the local environment. This may take several wash cycles, therefore maximum energy efficiency may not be achieved until a number of wash cycles have been completed.

This usually takes about 5 cycles.

Installation requirements


Your washer must be installed on firm flooring to minimize vibration during spin cycles. Concrete flooring is best, but wood base is sufficient providing the floor support meets FHA standards.

Your washer should not be installed on rugs or exposed to the weather.


Water temperature

Your cold water should not exceed 95˚F (35˚C) or your hot water exceed 150˚F (65˚C). Temperatures above this may damage your washer.

Shut off valves

Both hot and cold shut-off valves (faucets) should be available in the laundry area.


Water may be drained into a standpipe or set tub. The standpipe must be 1½” (38 mm) minimum interior diameter and must be open to the atmosphere.


This appliance must be supplied with 110V – 120 V, 60 Hz electrical supply and connected to an individual, properly grounded branch circuit, protected by a 15 or 20 amp circuit breaker or time delay fuse.

14 About your Ecosmart

How Ecosmartworks

The Fisher & Paykel Ecosmart’s ‘2 in 1’ wash system gives you the best of both worlds. Using a combination of front loader and top loader wash systems, the Ecosmart™ gives exceptional

wash results, and, at the same time, taking better care of your clothes than a conventional top load washer.

Phase 1 – Eco Activewash

Front loader type wash

The Ecosmart™ fills the bowl, at the selected temperature, with just enough water so that the clothes are 100% saturated.

This small amount of sudsy water is circulated through the clothes, up the specially designed portal and back onto the clothes in a waterfall effect.

The chemical action provided by a small amount of water, combined with detergent, rapidly targets soil and stains at fiber level, boosting soil removal and accelerating the wash process.

Phase 2 – Top loader type wash

After 4 minutes, your Ecosmart™ will fill with just enough cooler water to suspend the soil in solution. Agitation will then begin, moving soil away from the clothes. Because of its head-start, the wash requires less agitation than a conventional top loader wash.

About your Ecosmart™










Lid Lock

Your Ecosmart™ has a lid lock. This ensures the lid cannot be opened during the cycle, providing added safety for you and your family.

The LID LOCK light (above the START/PAUSE button) comes


on when the lid is locked to tell you when you cannot open


the lid.

Fig.16 LID LOCK activated


If the LID LOCK light is flashing the lid lock is in the process of locking or unlocking (ie while the machine coasts down or START/PAUSE has been pressed). During this stage the lid still cannot be lifted.

If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock the lid and the cycle will be halted. The machine will beep and the LID LOCK light will flash until the lid is closed and the START/PAUSE button is pressed.


Do not put anything down the slot in the top deck of your machine.

Do not try to disable the lid lock.

US 16 Wash cycles and options


The wash progress lights

The wash progress lights show all the tasks your Ecosmart™ will complete during the wash cycle. As each task is completed a light goes out, so you can tell at a glance how far the cycle has to go.

Advancing the wash cycle

To shorten the wash time, to rinse and spin only, or to spin only:

1 Select the wash cycle.

2 Press ADVANCE repeatedly until only the required number of lights remain on.


Note: the wash consists of two parts. The first

1Select wash cycle.

2Use the up or down arrows, or the options button, to select the wash options you want to use.


Softener/Bleach rinse


■■If you use liquid fabric softener.

■■If you use bleach.

This option changes the rinse to include a spray and deep rinse, so that the fabric softener/bleach will be dispensed correctly, and the machine sump will be thoroughly cleaned of bleach at the end of the cycle.

Note: we recommend the use of softener dryer sheets because liquid fabric softener has been known to cause an unpleasant build-up inside washing machines (refer to ‘Scrud’ page 23).

In addition, some wash loads are better washed using a cycle with a deep rinse. For instance, garments that have a lot of sand or sawdust in them, or garments where the color still runs. For these loads select the SOFTENER/BLEACH RINSE option, as this will change the rinse to include a deep rinse.


When you select SOAK your Ecosmart™ will stop at the end of wash and soak for 2 hours before completing the rinse and spin. During soak your washer will agitate for a few seconds every minute.

Time saver

TIME SAVER allows you to shorten the wash cycle for lightly soiled clothes. Selecting this option reduces the wash and spin times.

Time saver can be turned on or off at any time during the cycle.

Water levels

Auto water level

Your Ecosmart™ can automatically select the appropriate water level for the load.

1Place your clothes in the machine and press POWER.

2Select wash cycle (select AUTO water level if not automatically selected).


During fill the machine will pause occasionally to sense the water level. The machine will check if the water level is correct by using a series of two different agitate strokes (this may take over a minute). If it detects that the water level is not enough, it will fill with more water and re-check the level.

■■When washing an unusual load (eg large bulky garments, pillows), we recommend you manually select the water level and select the DELICATE cycle.

■■Manually select the water level if there is already water in the machine.

■■For a large bulky load or large single item (eg comforter) push the load down after the first fill.

Manual water level selection

The agitator has five levels marked on its stem that can be used to help you select the correct water levels. Select the correct water level by using the mark nearest to the top of the clothes.

■■The levels marked on the agitator do not correspond exactly to the level of water. They indicate the level of dry clothes suitable for the water level.

■■Your Ecosmart™ may occasionally add water during agitation. This is to maintain the water level due to the release of air trapped in the garments.

■■Out of balance loads, tangling or splashover can be caused by selecting a water level that is too high.

Spin hold

Use the SPIN HOLD option to:

■■ Remove drip dry garments from a mixed load before the wash goes into spin.

■■Minimize wrinkling that is caused when clothes are left sitting

in the machine at the end of the cycle.

When SPIN HOLD is selected, your Ecosmart™ will pause at the end of rinse, beep and the spin light will flash to tell you that it is waiting for another instruction. Press START/PAUSE to begin the spin.

Delay start

Fig.24 Selecting the

SPIN HOLD option

DELAY START will delay the start of the wash cycle for 1, 3 or 9 hours.

Press DELAY START once for a delay of 1 hour. Press again for 3 hours, a third time for 9 hours (and again to return to normal).

■■Once you press DELAY START your Ecosmart™ will begin the delay period, you do not have to press START/PAUSE.

■■Be careful if using DELAY START for non-colorfast clothes as dyes may run if the clothes are damp.

■■Your Ecosmart™ will not beep at the end of the cycle if DELAY START is selected.

Fig.25 Selecting 1 hour DELAY START option

Clothes care safeguards

To avoid accidentally damaging your clothes, there are a few options that your Ecosmart™ will not accept. For example, you cannot select a hot wash on the DELICATE cycle.

US 20 Wash cycles and options
