    Truly leading the way with drying technology, proper reversing equally both ways, no balling up of bedding.

    5/5
    A truly remarkable dryer & should be the standard for all manufactures. I am going to focus my review on the important points that stand out with this dryer for me & I feel it appropriate to mention the issues that led me to getting the F&P DH9060FS1. Having come from another premium Heat Pump dryer which was top of the range & had the auto rinse condenser & self-cleaning filter which was quite frankly the worst appliance I have ever owned, it balled up constantly not just bedding but loads with say PJ bottoms or trousers, it had started to tear sheets & pull buttons off things due to their being no reverse function. It took 6 hours to do a bedding load as had to keep opening the door letting out the heat that took ages to build up then start again using timed dry as the sensors would then think the load was dry, it would then ball up over & over again. Enough was enough. I have gone for F&P machine as I thought give a different brand a try. I was insistent on one feature I needed it to have, a reverse function & ideally it having an Inverter Compressor (more on this in my review). This F&P machine has both. Many of the dryers on the market that have a reverse feature reverse for say 20 seconds or so before going the other way again, this is due to a very basic design issue. The other machines on the market have one motor that drives both the drum & the fan that circulates the air at the same time. The fan will only allow be able to circulate air in one direction & not the reverse direction, this means you only get short reverses & during these reverses the fan does not move any air but is still rotating so air circulation stops momentarily. Cue the DH9060FS1 from F&P, this dryer is the first of its kind I believe to feature 2 separate brushless motors. One that drives the drum in either direction EQUALLY & a separate motor to drive the fan continuously & at variable speed (for the night-time Quiet mode to reduce noise or when using the Speed mode, it boosts the fan speed). This design allows the dryer to rotate in equal direction without impacting on air flows. On most cycles, it reverses the drum direction every 5 minutes & performs the new direction for another 5 minutes before reversing the other way. This is the first of its kind out there & is truly innovative that it is available on this domestic dryer. In my opinion this is the only way to stop tangling. Having a separate fan & drum motor (brushless) also means that there is less noise when using the drying rack as only the fan runs. The drum does not rotate so you have just warm air being blown over the flat rack so you will only hear airflow & the compressor. The next feature is the Inverter Compressor but let me explain what I am comparing to. The majority of your leading heat pump dryers from the lower end to the top end in cost have a fixed speed compressor, this means the compressor is either turned on or turned off. It’s true that heat pumps by their very nature do not get as hot as the electrical heating element dryers so are gentle on laundry however, they still can approach 50c by the end of the cycle. These fixed speed compressors cannot vary their output, they are literally providing 100% output (ON) or 0% output (OFF). This means you do not get variable temperature cycle options for delicate or wool items. The issue with fixed speed compressors is if you turn them off to try to control the temperature, the cold part of the system that removes the moisture from the airflow (& thus the clothes) would then stop dehumidifying the air so manufacturers keep the compressor running throughout the cycle. This F&P machine however has solved the above by fitting an Inverter Compressor, an Inverter allows the compressor (which generates the heat) to vary its speed & thus heat output. This means, if the compressor is running at 100% output, then full heat capacity is being generated (the same as a fixed speed model) but the compressor being inverter driven can also slow down, so it can slow down to say 50%, which in turn lowers the temperature of the air inside, particularly useful for delicate/wool items or anything else that requires a lower temperature to dry. The compressor is also able to go above 100% for short periods to get the temperature up as quick as possible (Speed Mode) before reverting to 100% output. The beauty of this control method is that when the compressor slows down it is still running, dehumidifying the air but the temperature of the laundry & airflow can be controlled very accurately. During say the Eco mode, the dryer will take longer to dry, as it runs the compressor at 80% output which means a slightly lower drying temperature which saves energy over the cycle. On quiet mode it slows it down even further along with the circulation fan for times when the rest of the house might be sleeping etc. This F&P machine has pre-set temperature cycles that range from Ultra Low, Low, Medium, Medium High, High, Ultra High. Each of these cycles relies on the compressor speeding up or slowing down once the temperature is achieved. Throughout the cycle it is normal to hear the compressor speeding up & down & being an Inverter it is quieter than the standard fixed speed. The sensors are very accurate at drying, I find the best setting is with the Dry & Extra Dry lights illuminated. The next step up would be Extra Dry. The dryness setting does take getting used to as it is pressing a button to light up the Damp/Dry/Extra Dry indicators. O.K. onto the negatives because there are a few annoyances on a machine in this price range. The machine has a steam function. There is no steam generator inside the machine though, the machine instead is connected to the water supply & it uses a very fine micronozzle to spray an ultrafine mist onto the items you are steaming. It is then reliant on the heat evaporating this spray mist to freshen items or to pre iron shirts. There are two hoses supplied to connect to your water supply, they are both about 50cm long & not long enough unless your water is directly behind the dryer. Secondly the supplied Y piece adapter to split your washing machine water supply pipe so that the dryer can be connected does not fit. I had to buy a U.K adapter costing about £1.50, still this is poor for a machine produced for the U.K market & the manufacturer should have provided 1 long water feed hose rather than 2 short ones as you can only use 1. I have chosen to fit the drainpipe connection, so I don’t have to empty the drawer, this was able to reach to the drain standpipe which is fitted next to the washer which is at the side of the dryer. Another thing that some may not realise, the dryer door is not reversible, meaning if your washer is next to your dryer, you will not be able to reverse the door to make loading your dryer straight after your washer has finished easier. I have chosen More things made of plastic, for example the door hinge is made of chrome coloured plastic & the inner door also whereas on my other appliance they were metal & glass. That aside the dryer is built well, there are no rattles & the door closes firmly. There is no Wi-Fi – the Australian/New Zealand Model comes with built in Wi-Fi as standard & advertised in this way. The U.K model despite being the same model does not have Wi-Fi available. The U.K website states that the machine has regular software updates, although without Wi-Fi or Bluetooth this will not be possible. A machine of this value really should have Wi-Fi & if regular software updates are advertised then how does the manufacture propose getting these onto customers machines if there is no connectivity? Personally, I am not fussed about controlling the dryer via an app however to be able to update software & download new programmes is attractive & the Australian model facilitates this via Wi-Fi although from reading reviews it is a feature that is not working too well currently.

    4/5
    First impressions are positive for this machine. It has a retro feel with high end touches to bring it into the premium banding. The touch sensitive buttons are immediately responsive, the screen provides nice animations for each cycle and the menu is nicely laid out. It’s pretty straight forward to use and allows customisations so you can personalise cycles to your own needs. The machine feels sturdy and well made. The large drum and menu allows you to select settings for heavier or bulky items, so fitting in a duvet won’t be a problem. The shelf for footwear is sleek in design and can be easily stored. The machine itself is impressively quiet and there is a further quiet setting for minimal noise. Surprisingly, the animated screen lacks a count down timer so, bare this in mind if you would miss this feature. The Fisher & Paykel website lacks clarity when it comes to all features. Some features listed on their online documents state WiFi, Alexa and Google connectivity. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case as there is nothing mentioned in the manuals and no app on App Store as of yet. Customer services for the brand confirm WiFi connectivity so a little confusing remains. Based on my first cycle, the towels have come out feeling soft, fresh and lacking the ‘burn’ feeling that I have previously experienced. Programme lengths are slightly longer but not by much and a absolutely worth it when you feel the clothes and look at the energy usage. The added steam function is perfect for less ironing so its worth it for that already. Easily plumped in for both water and drainage so no emptying if you have the facilities to plumb in a waste. I’m sold with the unit so far and am happy to have Fisher & Paykel alongside my other German appliances.

    Very pleased!

    5/5
    Excellent appliance with more options than my previous heat exchange drier. Dries very well and option for eco or speed. Significant improvement on drying a full load of towels compared to my previous drier in terms of dryness and speed. Clearing filter is easier too which is useful as this is a vital task to keep drier working optimally. Once again delighted with a Fisher & Paykel product.
