I am looking out for a tumble dryer and this seems a decent price for a heat pump. I am concerned about the reviews but am thinking this might be a good pairing with our AEG washer dryer (we always have the dryer to fall back on if the Hoover packs up).
Full load synthetics fully dry is just less than 2 hours, my load yesterday used 0.91kw, it had cotton socks in it too, plus jumpers, leggings. I keep reading about 4 hour loads but I've never had one. Cottons, towels etc take longer but I'd say 3 hours max. I don't find it noticeably long. The display does tell you how long left. About 2/3rd full of towels and piillowcases used 1.15kw to totally dry.
How long does your full load take? I’ve been told that with the heat pumps you are trading lower running costs for longer drying cycles but I don’t know anyone with one personally to verify.
I’ve have this tumble dryer works fine I’ve had it for over two years
I've got the integrated hoover heat pump and it's been fine. I don't understand those having issues with dryness. Even when I take a load from an 8kg washing machine into the 7kg dryer (there's 3 levels of dry to chose from) it always comes out dry. You need to air it a little bit after, I think the air is a little moist or the residual heat makes clothes not feel dry, but a couple of mins later they feel completely dry. Had it for nearly 2 years. It's on a smart plug - A full load uses about 1.2 -1.6kw but I do have loads that are 0.9kw, I just use whites of synthetics progs, Last load was synthetics and that was full load 1.3kw to completely dry. It's just me and the dog and I'm using less than 7kw a month, that's a pound a month to use. My Dad has a hoover condenser about same age and that uses about 5kw per load.
