Anyone own a Candy GOC590C Tumble dryer - Drain Pipe?

15
Found 13th Nov 2012
If anyone owns the above could they tell me - Does it have the option to drain the water into the mains along with the washers waste, to save having to empty the bottle.

Tried phoning Candy twice and got no reply, couple of reviews say yes and the same say no.

We currently have a white knight which lets the water go straight in to the washer stack and want the same feature again.

Thanks

The kitchen area is not my speciality but....Dryers are for.....drying?

Why on earth would it have a waste drainage?

Because the water retained from drying has to go somewhere, usually to an internal water tank, op is looking for one that'll allow drainage to be external......

My clothes come out my washing machine pretty dry. The dryer just kills the moisture left in the clothes, so no drainage needed.

First ive heard of a drainage dryer. Although i did mention the kitchen is not my speciality.
H'mmm.

Repair manual (mediafire.com/view/?41qmbjufkrfr1lr) shows only one motor. These doesn't seem to be any pumps or other means of mechanically emptying the condensate tank, just an overflow sensor to warn / shutdown in the event of high level.

I'd suspect that's just a safety feature - clothes should be pretty well spun dry before putting them in the drier - otherwise you'd be running up a huge bill evaporating more than a little water.

Hope that helps a bit

these driers work by condensing the evaporated water so you dont need to vent them

Ooops! Yep, read it wrong. Apologies
Managed to get through to Candy and they're going to find out.

Maybe my OP wasn't very clear. A condenser tumble dryer collects water in a container that needs to be regularly emptied, some models have the option of fitting a hose that will divert the water away from the container and into your drain. Saves having to empty the container.

Explain why that is so?

My dryer does not collect water. So my dryer burns the 5% water left in the clothes. And they dry in 5 mins...if that.

Made in england 1981 FYI.

1. The water isnt killed oO Google evaporation

2. You obviously have a vented dryer to an external wall (or a dryer that humdifies your house at the same time ) - do you get damp / mould in the dryer location?
