So after seeing a video posted by a friend on Facebook, I went and gave this a bash and hey-presto!

It worked.

http://www.radiolive.co.nz/VIDEO-Fisher-and-Paykel-washing-machines-play-NZ-national-anthem/tabid/439/articleID/36179/Default.aspx

Quite hilarious - and annoying - and patriotic.

Anyone else got any interesting appliances?

They did this when I used to sell them 13-14 years ago. It's just that YouTube hadn't been invented yet.

First appeared on the internet around 2001. Amazing what a You Tube video can do.

If your modern one doesnt do it, then it could be that elba ones do.
Elba is the F&P budget brand so i wonder if the logic boards have been bought into them.

My 20 year old Gentle Annie finally blew up last night so i havent been able to test it, but i know the ones i used to sell 5 years ago did it.

Oh horror. I tried it on my newish f&p washing machine and it played the Australian National Anthem. Time to kick it into touch, maybe - in 4 more years, underarm...




don't mess with me.... i'm the hd insider....
