In addition to launching new outdoor cooking systems, refrigerators and the Companion cooking range, Fisher & Paykel unveiled new laundry appliances, cooktops and freestanding cookers at its gala event on Tuesday night.
There are two models in F&P’s new 10-kilogram washing machine range: the CleanSmart (WL1068P1, RRP $1,349) and the WashSmart (WA1068GI, RRP $1,199).
The CleanSmart is very much a new direction for F&P, with style much more prevalent in this release that in its previous washers. The machine includes a soft close glass lid on the exterior and no agitator on the inside. Control for the machine’s functions is via the SmartTouch Control Dial, which is influenced by Gaggenau’s knob on its induction cooktops.
For those consumers who like a visible agitator and prefer the traditional white veneer, F&P’s WashSmart model will be the preferred choice.
Both machines have 4-star energy ratings, while the CleanSmart has a 4-star WELS water rating and the WashSmart has a 3.5-star WELS rating.

There are three new Gas on Glass cooktops in the Fisher & Paykel cooking range: the 600mm 3 Burner (CG603DNGGB1, RRP $1,399), the 600mm 4 Burner (CG604DNGGB1, RRP $1,399) and the 900mm 5 Burner (CG905DNGGB1, RRP $1,599).
Even the photopraphy of F&P's Gas on Glass cooktops is stylish.
New to the freestanding cooker market will be two new 900mm models, differentiated by the choice of a Gas on Glass or a Gas on Steel cooktop. New pricing has been announced for these models.
