Fisher & Paykel IWL16
25" Top-Load Intuitive Eco Washer with 3.7 Cu. Ft. Capacity, 13 Automatic Cycles & 1000 RPM Spin Speed


No Longer Available

A machine so intelligent that it senses the average fabric mix of the load and creates the optimum wash cycle based on what it 'feels'. With sophisticated electronics and a revolutionary direct drive motor, Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco is born out of 70 years of laundry innovation.

The Smart Drive system connects a programmable motor directly to the agitator by a single stainless steel shaft. There are no belts, gears or pulleys to break down. The clothes washer senses each load, sets the water level and adjusts the wash action to produce a superior wash.

With a top spin speed of 1000 RPM, this washer reduces drying time by up to 30%. A time saver option allows you to wash lightly soiled items in less time, and through load sensing, the perfect amount of water is used every time.

The durable lid is injected with a glass bead-filled SAN core and virgin ABS skin to provide a non scratching surface to work on. A removable lid and agitator makes the task of cleaning simple. There's no need t o empty slimy lint traps either as the automatic lint filter ensures lint is pumped out with the wash water.

For delicate items the system operates at very slow agitate speeds. This means you can machine wash clothes you would normally only hand wash.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by this washing machine is above the normal We are happy with this machine, however we recieved a model we did not want due to false information from the sales desk. 9/3/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by nothing fancy but it's GREAT!!!! I LOVE this washer! It's very simple looking but does a fantastic job getting clothes clean. Very quiet machine. I would buy it all over again. 7/30/08
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent washer This has proven to be an excellent washer. We replaced a Maytag Neptune that managed to make it 6 years, and like the FP much better. It holds a LOT of clothes and all the features function as advertised. I have no idea how it "senses" how much water to use, but it does. I've opened it during the wash and the water is always just covering the more and no less. I also like the fact that it's a direct drive washer a lot. It's much lighter than the Neptune or other front loaders and was easier to carry into the house and move around to get in the right place. The one small complaint is that when you want to use fabric softener you've got to make a setting for an extra rinse, and then you've got to turn off this setting when you don't want to use fabric softener. There needs to be a button dedicated to this setting on the washer so you don't have to cycle through all the options looking for it, as we only use fabric softener with certain loads. In all other functional repects, however, this is an excellent washer. 7/2/08
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool Spaceship! This thing sounds like an alien spaceship, it's all muted whirs and clicks and purring. It is quiet even when spinning the clothes dry and very stable. The controls seem like they are going to be complicated but really aren't. It's not too heavy, when I first looked at it I thought it was going to feel cheap because it's kind of plasticy and rounded but it turns out to feel nice and solid. I though the lid was weird at first, the lid is the whole top of the washer ( not counting the controls ), I'm used to the lid being inset into the top and having an inch or so around the edge but the full lid seems better since it eliminated a place for grime to accumulate. We're happy with it so far after a couple months. 1/20/08
