I am looking for a new dryer but there are ordinary ones and condenser ones, which i havent had. Looking for the most economical i can, my last one had rear hose which i had piped outside, so dont know if need condenser type.
interested in any advice on these, need large 6/7kg capacity too. Is the condenser just for eco friendly reasons or other???

any advice appreciated peops thanks.

They are a bit more expensive but I think it was worth the money. The reviews are usually quite on these too.

one with a sensor and a long guarantee, the sensor knows how dry it is (adjustable) and turns onto cold tumble for a while, saves energy and creases less.

the outside pipe one is the best type, stick with that if you can

the condensor is slower and uses more power, and is usually plumbed in to a water supply and drain pipe (it uses cold water to condense with)

didnt think was a sensor, my old one just stayed at one heat no matter what number i put it on. enough is enough for that old faithful.

Only a very small minority of condenser dryers need plumbing in, Very rare in fact these days. Most condenser dryers have a container which collects the water, You have to empty occasionally.

Vented dryers usually use less energy.

I've got an idesit condenser dryer and as it's made by Hotpoint I'm actually quite surprised to say it's still working after over a year. Every other Hotpoint product I've had as gone faulty within a year or gone totally kaput within two or three years. It's used about two to three times a week so it's done well.

White Knight are very highly recommended, My mums got one and it must be 10 - 15 years old and still going strong...!!!

oh ok, that helps, yeah my energy bills are high enough, so prob best to stay with the vented type, by the looks of it. didnt know if the white knight ones where cheap because they ate more electric.

i find my condenser one dries clothese quicker than a normal one as long as you dont stick to much in, as its a bigger drum alot of people tend to stick more in, i dry everything, i dont have a clothes line, and my leccy bills are about £100 a quarter, my heating and hob is gas, but oven and everything else is electric
