tumble dryers

Postby hope07 » Mon Jan 16, 2012 8:23 am

Can anyone recommend a good vented tumble dryer. Ours has broke so got to get a new one.
Willing to spend about £250.
Do the dryers that detect when the liad is dry really work.
Also does anyone have a reverse dryer and are they better/ quicker?

Thanks Hope

I have a condenser tumble dryer and it is more efficient than my old one was. You just have to make sure you empty the water out.
My mum has one that is supposed to detect when the load is dry but tbh it's rubbish.
Mine is a zannussi one and i can't fault it actually.

I cant remember what mine is (will look when I get home) and its an energy efficient one and I absolutely hate it. My previous one was really good, this one (as Im no ironer) doesnt seem to get the creases out at all like the old one does so I wouldnt buy it again.

I've got an LG washer dryer (condenser dryer), which is absolutely fab. The dryness sensors work really well, and it even plays a jaunty little tune when it's finished :-)

I have a condenser LG dryer - it is plumbed in so I don't need to empty the container. The sensor is good as well.

The reverse ones are worth all the money - they are especially good for drying big stuff like bedding - because they never roll them into balls.

I was just about to recommend our Hotpoint one! :lol:
We've had it a good 7+ years now & it's still going strong. Doesn't seem to chew through loads of leccy either, which is always a plus point :wink:
Hope you're happy with your choice, Hope :D
