My first tumble dryer
Member Name: Willow_Warren
Advantages: Simple, large drum, not too deep
We bought this tumble dryer as we were fed up of having loads and loads of washing hanging around the house, on airers and over the radiators, during the weeks of dam and wet weather we had this spring. Since having it delivered it has had weekly use.
This model is not as deep as some models which is useful if you are a little short of space, however it does have a large drum, I have to confess I do not know what 7kg of washing looks like, but it has not struggled with what I have sensibly put into it.
It has very simple operation, two heat settings and a timer which, is any thing up to 120 minutes, it doesn't have a sensor but you soon get used to how long things take to dry. It also vented rather than a condenser, but I think this makes it more simple and less likely for something to go wrong. I did however have to buy a longer hose for it to reach the door as the one supplied is quite short.
It basically does the job for what we bought it, it dries the clothes evenly and leaves them lovely and soft. I use it to dry complete loads of washing and also to "finish stuff of" which we have hung outside which usually takes about 20 minutes, so being able to set the time accurately is a good thing with this machine.
It doesn't have a consensor or sensor, but it is a good basic machine.
Overall very happy with the first few months of ownership.
Summary: Good machine, does what it says
