Who can tell me anything about this brand.  Local appliance guy tells me that as far as repair ease and a workhorse of a machine that this is it.  Tells me his techs buy these when they have their choice. Touting these above a duet?  Adivce needed.

Can't say I know anything about them myself, sorry.
Maybe Pegi or one of the other members can tell us what they know about them.

Hope you find our site helpful.

Never seen any of these yet, we do advise to buy the Duets as it what we know and like, are about like the LG but duets easier to work on a tad....I would imagine it would depend on what you know about and work on and what you can get parts for easily, can get WP parts anywhere, gotta get FP parts from FP...however I do understand you only need a screw driver to work on the fp stuff, so just what we have knowledge of seems to be what we recommend...human nature....

Just called Fisher&Paykel Customer Service (1-888-936-7872).  You have to be one
of thier Authorized Servicers for parts, manuals, etc.  >:(   
So, of course, I won't be buying thier appliances ! ! ! !   
If I spend $900.00 for a dishwasher ( ??? won't be happening), I want parts and service
ASAP ! ! ! !
                                           Just so we all know,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Fisher&Paykel makes a very good product when used as designed.  I highly recommend their laundry products for those that want a high efficiency, large capacity product at a reasonable cost.  Their dishdrawer dishwasher has had some issues, but the latest model works quite well.  As for the screwdriver, most the the dishdrawer doesn't even require one to service it.  Parts are obtained from an approved vendor or F&P itself. 

I have been servicing this line for several years now.  If that was all I worked on, frankly I would have little to do.

I've been trying to find more information about this brand too because I'm thinking of purchasing one.  My sister in law has it and she has never had any problem with the brand so far.

They make some beautiful stuff. Whoever designs it apparently actually talks to service technicians and makes their products easy to service. Most jobs on the dishdrawers don't even require tools and the most you need to service one is a #2 Phillips, a small flat screwdriver, a needle nose pliers, VOM and a brain. They can be tricky to the uninformed but once you work on one or two you won't want to work on anything else. The washers are great and relatively trouble-free. The driers seem a little complicated but are solid and reliable as well. The cooking products I have seen are very nice and well made.
