Dreadful is about the only word I can use to describe this tumble dryer, I've used it for a couple of weeks now after my mum loaned it me while I had my own dryer repaired - thank goodness it's now working properly again and I could give this awful White Knight 38AS back as I never want to use it again!
The dryer has a 3kg capacity, which is small considering there are six of us in this house but really it's big enough for us as I prefer to dry my washing on the line outside (weather permitting).
It's very slow and doesn't dry certain things at all, jeans and towels you have no chance of getting dried although it can just about cope with smaller items (like a toddler t-shirt and maybe a pair of tights).
This also gets surprisingly hot during use, which isn't good as I have a busy household and really this does get hot enough to burn tender young skin.
The dryer is on wheels which is handy as my own isn't so when I drop something behind or to the side it's a bit of faffing to shift the dryer to reach what's dropped - and to be honest half the time I just leave whatever it is there until the next time it needs pulling out for cleaning. The 38AS is excellent in this regard as it means I can just wheel it around and pluck up whatever it is I've dropped.
Still, a more portable dryer doesn't make it any better considering it doesn't do the job of drying my clothes - I'm a bit disorganised with my washing anyway and need an effective dryer, unfortunately this isn't effective in the slightest and I'm so glad to have my own dryer back again.
WHAT IS IT?
An electric tumble dryer that is made by White Knight.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
This tumble dryer is very easy to use because it has only one dial for you to set the time for how long you want it to dry for. There is a button also to pick if you want low or high heat. You can put 3kg of wet clothes into this dryer but I do not ever put that much in and use it for just a few items at a time.
WHAT I THINK
I like this dryer because it is very fast at drying my laundry, it is a little bit noisy sometimes but I do not care about that because it is kept in my conservatory so does not disturb us at all even if I have it on at night. I think it is best to shake out the damp laundry before putting it into the dryer because that stops it from creasing and helps it to dry more even also.
The dryer has a long fat pipe that my husband has made a hole in the wall for so that the hot air goes outside, I think this works good and even if I have had it on for a long time I do not get any condensation in my conservatory and the wall behind the dryer does not get damp. I do not know what you would do if you can not put this pipe through the wall to go outside because when I look outside a lot of water and steam comes through it and they would go into the air in your home if you cannot send it outside.
I like to use the high heat setting because that dries my laundry very quickly but sometimes I use the low setting for my daughters lace tights and dresses because they are not supposed to go in the dryer but on this setting they are never damaged. I have dried towels and jeans in the dryer on the high setting but they take a very long time and I would like to dry those outside when I can. I think the towels come out of the dryer a bit hard even if I have used fabric softener and they are best to be dried in the open air.
This dryer is very easy to clean because you can pull the filter out and remove any fluff that has stuck to it. I do this every time I use it because if you leave it for too long the fluff makes the dryer start to smell when you are using it. I wipe the top and sides quite a lot because it shows up a lot of dust and dirt, I think dust is attracted to it because of how warm all of the sides get when it is being used.
I think this White Knight tumble dryer cost about £150 and I think that is very good value because it works very well and is effective at drying my laundry and keeping it safe while it is inside the dryer.
