How to make your laundry more efficient for your lifestyle...



When life’s too short to be doing laundry, you want washing and drying clothes to be as efficient as possible. Since the laundry can take up valuable time and space in your home, a functional laundry will help free up time for you to do better things.

Whether you live alone in a studio apartment and do laundry twice a week, or family demands make it a time-intensive daily activity, laundry is easier when everything is in order.

No matter what size house or household, Fisher & Paykel has front- and top-loader washers and dryers to help lighten the load, no matter what size house or household.

When space is limited in a studio apartment, and a laundry is simply a single appliance in a cupboard, a washer dryer combo is a two-in-one solution that will save space as well as time.  

Compact all-in-one front loaders are easy to install under a bathroom or kitchen bench-top or into a hallway cupboard and will wash and dry an average load in less than three hours. Specific wash cycles range from delicate to heavy, so you can wash gym gear, delicate’s and towels without worry. And as no venting is required for installation, it means less humidity in a small studio space.




Space is equally valuable in apartments where washers and dryers are likewise hidden behind cabinetry. Side-by-side front-loading machines allow for usable benchtops above, or stacked machines make for efficient use of cupboard space.

With revolutionary SmartDrive™ technology, Fisher & Paykel washers intelligently adjust and optimise the wash cycle for better clothes care. Condensing dryers are quick and efficient and those with heat pump technology dry clothes gently at lower temperatures, which makes for better results and use less energy than condenser or vented dryers




Townhouses may have a small laundry room, but when space is still at a premium, stacking front-loading appliances will free up valuable floor or storage space. Perfect pairs of designed-to-match washers and dryers look good and perform well with complementary designs, dimensions and easy-to-use interfaces.

And because you love your clothes, Fisher & Paykel FabricSmart™ washing machines care for your precious garments. Your favourite pieces will look and feel like new with specialist cycles for woollens, delicate’s and gym gear.

In a rush? Most wash cycles take less than an hour to complete with Fisher & Paykel Vortex Wash, and the Time Saver option activates a special temperature profile and unique tumble sequence to speed things up even more when time is of the essence.

Family home

Larger laundries are a must-have when your kids’ come home in dirty school clothes and muddy sports gear. And while larger laundries offer more room to move, good design and functionality is no less important for efficient time and space.

Fisher & Paykel’s top-loading washing machine is the perfect choice for meeting the demands of families who do lots of washing, which is why it was voted as Australia’s most popular top-loader by Canstar Blue. The SmartDrive™ technology and flexible fins in the agitator work together to optimise the wash and offer superior fabric care. Based on the resistance of the load, the fins determine the fabrics, sense the soil levels and provide continuous feedback to the motor, creating thousands of specific ‘wash profiles’ in comparison to other brands that only have up to six wash profiles.

Fisher & Paykel’s top-loading washer ranges in capacity from 5.5 to 10 kilograms to handle family-sized loads and bulky items, such as doonas. And because the machine might be going all day, SmartDrive™ allows for a reliable, quiet and efficient wash while maintaining performance in back-to-back cycles.

So now you have the laundry sorted, you’ll always have fresh, clean clothes at the ready for doing better things.

Time saving and oh so smart, say hello to the LG TWIN Wash...


Everyone is busy - whether it be work, family, kids, friends, trying to have a social life or all of the above! Our day to day lives are hectic at the best of times and because of that I know that finding new ways to save time is always a good idea, especially on the less than exciting things like laundry!  

So it’s time to start saving a few precious moments of your day to day life, and what better way to do it than with the new LG TWIN Wash – smart, efficient and most of all time saving! 


First and foremost, the feature I am most excited by is the Dual Loads feature, yes you heard me correctly - you can wash 2 loads at once! With the uniquely designed Mini Washer for those all-important small loads and delicate items, you can do two loads of washing at the same time - boom, life is already better, getting all your washing done in a flash is my type of washing machine! And as an added bonus, even though it’s a front loader it has a Mid Cycle Pause feature, so you can always get that lost sock in.

My next favourite time saving and life changing feature is the Washer/Dryer Combo. The front loader in the LG TWIN Wash also doubles as a dryer, so you can load it, set it to wash and dry, and then come back and TA-DA it’s all done in one click of a button! The Washer/Dryer Combo also saves you valuable floor space in the laundry by having just the one laundry specific appliance… and isn’t storage space just the best thing in the world?! Time to say hello to more of it!

Now we all love a bit of technology, it’s the way of the modern world and now you can get tech-y with your laundry appliances too! The LG TWIN Wash smart phone integration feature means you can manage your laundry anytime and anywhere through your mobile phone with the LGSmartThinQ app! You can remotely start or monitor the wash cycle while you’re at work, on the move or even outside watching your kids play – excited much?! 


And I just need to add because it is such a major factor for me and I’m sure for many of you, that this washing machine is oh so sexy… sleek, modern and with an anti-fingerprint stainless finish - what is that you say? literally your fingerprints won’t end up all over this, so you don’t need to add that to your cleaning list, hallelujah!

Although mundane daily tasks like laundry exist when we would all much prefer to be sunning ourselves, sipping a cheeky vino and reading a book, LG makes it a whole lot better with inventions like the Twin Wash! Now, when will they make a robot to actually load the washing for us?!
