My tumble drier just died after a long happy life? what now?

I have been looking online for a new cheap tumble dryer and have stumbled across a spin dryer ( i remember my Grandad having one). Does a spin dryer get clothes dry like a tumble dryer or is it just like a major spin in the washing machine. Also which is the most economical to run? any help would be appreciated. :)

It is 10ish years old so prob due to die. I used to stand on the top of it too reach the top of the cupboard and that made it squeak when it turned round until it got hot. Now its not turning and smells like burning lol.

Could be just the drive belt then, worth a bash I'd say.

You'd kick yerself it was just the belt and you slashed out on a new one wouldn't you.

I would buy a Condensor Sensor Dryer. They are dearer but save money in the long run as they stop when the clothes are dry saving Electricity...Also look for delay start if you have economy 7 because you can set it to go on at night...Indesit have one for £249 @ Additions Direct its called the IDCA735 or you can buy a timed dryer @£190.79 in Argos (Indesit IS70C) Good Luck :thumbsup:

Have you asked on freecycle? I'm pretty sure you have to offer something first, but there are some good things going on there. You just have to find your nearest one- look on google for freecycle UK
