To be used specifically to dry clothes that are hung up yo dry in a room at a temperature of about 15 degrees c.

This will be used in a spare bedroom.

If it warms the house a bit that`s a bonus

Don't know about the voting, it seems to have gone haywire of late.

But, a dehumidifier with clothes setting can be more cost effective than a tumble dryer and can double up in the normal means of dehumidifying a room.

FWIW I have a heat pump tumble dryer but upstairs (we have a devon long barn so it's like a long thin ship and air doesn't move well) we have a Meaco from John Lewis. It costs about 2p an hour when on full but we leave it on automatic which means it probably is only on 3-4 hours a day (initially it will be on more until the humidity in your home is reduced). It dries clothes at the same time if you want it to and has a specific setting for just that.

I dont get why you want a dehumidifier. You can just buy a condensing tumble dryer that you can put absolutely anywhere without the need of any work being done which would be more efficient & cost you less money in running costs...

Not really sure, think it depends how loud you can live with, we got this one last year and works well:
12L Screwfix

Also tried a few others but were not as good.

Some others on the website with reviews.

A dehumidifier will not dry your clothes overnight. Its too busy drying the air

The only way your clothes dry is by evaporation either by heat (tumble dryer) or by time (& at 15 degrees it will take days).

Dehumidifiers take water from air not wet clothes.

You are wasting your time thinking about it & your money if you buy it for the purpose of drying clothes.

So why do they laundry functions and can dry a full load in about 4 hours .
That's my understanding anyway

Show me on the internet where you read that?

I am totally lost by what you are saying.

"Rapid control of humidity and indoor laundry drying. Controls mould, condensation and bacteria growth"

The first line in the description refers to general indoor humidity and excess humidity caused by laundry dried indoors on an airer, over banisters or radiators etc. It removes excess moisture in the room atmosphere by cooling down the air and collecting the condensed water in a tray inside the machine which is emptied when full rather than drying clothes.

What ultimately are you needing?
Something to dry you clothes on or in? And how small do you need it?

I have a large hanging frame in a bedroom that I use in winter to dry clothes on
They will dry in there own in there gradually because they are in a warm house
Just something to keep the humidity levels in check and a lot of people say dehumidifiers aid the drying process, at least that's what j thought
#20
Just looked at some of the reviews and it seems the dehumidifier has got a Turbo laundry button/setting. This is just for boosting the appliance to collect the amount of excess moisture in the room when wet clothes are just hung up to dry.

Yes that's what I want
Have you ever owned one?

Rather than buying a dehumidifier (which are expensive to run) I would suggest just getting the small moisture collecting boxes with the silica inside from pound shops and put on the window ledges first and see if that makes a difference to the humidity and perhaps buy a small fan heater to heat the room to speed up the drying process.
#23
I've only ever hired a dehumidifier when we had a burst pipe under the stairs to draw any water out of the carpet and skirting board. If you're doing a lot of washing why not buy a small tumble dryer and put it in the airing cupboard or on top of your washing machine.

Dehumidifiers do help a little with drying clothes as they remove moister out of the air but would probably only cut drying time by about 10%. They obviously also help prevent mould and condensation building up so are sometimes recommended as an aid.

That's because there were some people enforcing their opinion as fact, which is unfortunate.
I use a dehumidifier now for this exact purpose because I'm saving up for a tumble dryer in the meantime. I use a Mitsubishi MJ-E16VX-E1 and it has a 'laundry' setting that we use. In essence it halves the drying time for us especially when I position the louvres towards the clothes rack. This comparison is to when we used to just literally leave the clothes drying on the clothes rack. It used to take three days for the clothes to dry and now it's one to one and a half days.
Feel free to PM me for any questions.

how long have you owned the meaco I had for just over a year and John lewis give 2 years warranty but they refused to send it off to be fixed and wouldn't replace it either so ended up with a refund. The sensor on it failed so it was constantly on wouldn't turn off when the water tray was full. was good while it lasted though kept my cellar nice and dry.
