Is It Safe To Put My Tumble Dryer In The Cupboard?

Posted 10th Apr 2019
I'm planning on getting a condenser tumble dryer. Unfortunately due to constraints within my rented flat, there is no room for one in the kitchen. I'm wondering if putting one in a cupboard that is 76 x 60 x 208cm would be ok?

Does anyone have theirs in a cupboard in the hall or under the stairs? If so, have any of you experienced issues due to this?

Thanks folks!

As long as it’s a condenser type and you leave the door open, it would be ok. I’ve got mine in a cupboard standing on top of the washing machine and have no problems.

As mentioned leave door open during use it needs air to come in and out
I had one in a cupboard for years without any issues

Reminds me of a joke:

How you turn the dishwasher on?

Answer is a little to rude though.
Good luck trying to find one that will fit in that cupboard space. It will be wedged in tight so not a good idea

Haha it’s definitely a tumble dryer. No idea why I typed dishwasher.

Thanks for the advice folks. My
Concern was overheating with it being such a confined space. The plan was to leave the door open and open windows in the house when in use.

opening the windows wont make any difference.
Oh. I thought extra cold air venting into the cupboard would be a good idea.

Exactly. Many Washing Machines and Tumble Dryers manufacturers fail to mention that it's inadvisable to place their white goods into a confined space. Doesn't matter if they are built and designed for this requirement. Unfortunately ALL white goods produce low frequency noise that if confined into a tight space, the resultant vibrations will transfer through the floors (especially laminate), floors and the kitchen units.
