Do dryers damage clothes ? Always interested in buying one


Yes, clothes are getting smaller, but according to my wife I am getting fatter.

Do dryers damage clothes ? Always interested in buying one


To A Certain Extent yes, when you tumble dry(and also when you wash) you have to clean the fluff out of the filter. The fluff are fibres from your clothes so they become less soft over time,
You have to wash and dry in very gentle cycles to minimise the degradation, it's a slow process, takes about a year to make a well worn t-shirt thin enough to see through though.

A heat pump tumble dryer like this is, is a bit different though, it doesn't dry your clothes to a completely dry state which helps to reduce the fibre loss massively (unless you choose to have the drier make your clothes bone dry, not doing that is one of the reasons why it uses a lot less energy) This seems very odd at first, wrong even but after a a few times you'll realise that it takes about ten mins for them to dry on the hangers, In a pile in your house etc.

Using the correct settings keeps the loss reduced and the energy use down.
Worse than line drying, but not likely to rip clothes and infinitely less hassle than pegging out, bringing in..
Also If you can get it plumbed to a waste pipe it makes it less hassle.

Eta, it will shrink clothes if you use the wrong settings - tumble drying a wool sweater on the wrong setting will make a large into a child's size.

For the bosh driers you can buy racks that go inside to dry wool and shoes without the tumble.

Not a bad deal. Same on ebay argos store and £524 on hughes ebay store. Probably with same CB deal
Im just waiting for the next samsung deal
DV90N8289AWEU £525 that was before xmas on samsung site parts and labour 5 years.

Gutted i missed that
These are pretty decent units BUT take out the extended warranty, we are on our 3rd one of these, the heater pump went on the previous 2, one after 2.5years and the other after a month (all replaced under our extended warranty). Also they have to be placed inside the house - not in the garage

As above has said take out a warranty as my neighbour has had two which has failed after a couple of years and each time they’ve been informed that they are not worth repairing. Also I’m not sure how long it takes to pay for the extra investment in electricity savings, if ever. We just have a normal condenser type but now mostly use our dehumidifier with laundry mode which doesn’t shrink or damage anything.

Agree with this. We're on our 2nd heat pump drier and if had the choice again would have gone for regular condenser. Bought a Bosch Classixx 7 drier for my mum at £257 last month opposed to almost double what I paid for our heat pump. Back of a fag packet calculation, it will take about 8 years for the £ difference to be realised.
I can’t attest for its reliability but I have this dryer (I’ve only had it for a month), I’m very happy with it.

2.5 years! Anything less than five for one of these and i would take it back to the shop for a refund under consumer rights.

I bought a Bush dryer from Argos - £130 quid. it live in the Garage and still going strong 5 years later
OK it's vented, but it comes with various settings for Cotton, mixed, synthetic and anti-crease. also airing, dry or Bone dry against all of those.
cons. it has a hose which is fed through the back garage door
I need to empty the fluff.

just sayin'

There are other benefits to heat pump dryers than just the energy consumption. i,e they're kinder to your clothes and far safer as they don't have an element like conventional dryers etc.. hence less likely that lint from your clothes will end up making contact with the element potentially causing fire etc...

Yes they take a little longer to dry but still use around half the energy. Mine takes around 2 hours for a full load.

Is the install the same?

I have a Samsung top of the range, which just died. I thought I took out the 5 year warranty, but apparently it only comes with 2, then you have to register for the additional 3.! Annoyed.

Heat pump for us, is good at saving money, but clothes are rarely dry.

Mine takes ages and we have to put it on numerous times.

Mine are always dry.

Same install for condenser or heat pump (no external pipes). Heat pump should be placed within house as opposed to garage due to the way they work using ambient heat rather than a heated element

I would just recommend getting the cheapest, decent rated one. It's simple technology so no need for fancy gadgets. Paid 150 for mine an indersit and 10 years later as good as new

Mine is perfect.

Sensor dry is always spot on and it actually dries in semi-decent time considering it’s a heat-pump. Did it ever work well? Have you cleaned your sensor?
I have a smeg heat pump dryer, it's worked great so far though not sure if all heat pumps are as bad as each other though?

Which sensor?

It's not been great from the start but that's because we are used to a conventional tumble dryer. We always clean everything out and tend to use the 1.5 hour cycle, next one up is 3 hours and that seems to do the same job. Thanks for your reply BTW

At the moment is a combination of it sounding like a train and simply leaving the clothes slightly damp. The latter is the real issue, we've tried all types of settings and I'm a geek so read the manual well.

Does the drum spin ok? Empty the dryer and turn the drum by hand. It should be quite firm but shouldn't move side to side/up and down.

Might just be a snapped belt (cheap fix)

Mine is the Bosch WTR85V21GB (so I think this deal might be a newer model) - as I mentioned above somewhere, I haven’t had it long enough to speak for its reliability. However, as function goes it hasn’t skipped a beat, the best I’ve ever owned. I’ve also got it plumbed in, if that makes a difference to performance.

Do you use the maximum spin setting on the washer before putting clothes in the dryer? I found the higher spins make a massive difference

I’m not sure if this makes it clear (or if you have a Bosch). They are where the circles are, but on the inside of the drum. Just below the lint trap.

There are two metal bars, those are the sensors. Give ‘em a wipe.

It was the motor, replaced the motor (£110) then all is good.

Thank you

Ìt was making a grinding noise. When I took it apart I found that the blower (fan) was rubbing against the plastic rear casing and had ceased (which also ceased the drum). I've not worked out why it happened yet. Going to give Bosch a call tomorrow.
