Find the ideal tumble dryer for you
AN APPLIANCE THAT SUITS YOUR NEEDS
When you are about to invest in a new tumble dryer that best suits both your lifestyle and needs, there are many factors to consider. The location and space available, the different types of fabrics you care for, ironing habits and how many loads you run a week all influence which tumble dryer you should select. Follow our simple buying guide that will help you find the right dryer for you.
SPACE & LOCATION
Whether you opt for a free standing tumble dryer, or one that's built-in behind a cabinet to fit in with your kitchen theme, you need to make sure that the appliance will fit.
How much space do you have?
60cm width - A standard tumble dryer will fit your space
< 60cm width – A compact dryer is perfect for smaller spaces – you can even hang it on the wall to maximise your space. Alternatively, if you have a standard front-loaded washer, you can stack a standard dryer on top.
Top-tip: Running out of space? Consider buying a compact 2-in-1 washer dryer combo.
Tumble dryer capacity and load sizes
How often do you run your tumble dryer on a weekly basis?
Less than 4 times a week – if you only do a few small loads per week, a 4-6kg dryer will suit your needs
4-6 times a week – a capacity of 7kg would be ideal and can handle a few larger items like duvets and jeckets
6+ times a week – Select a tumble dryer with a 8+ kg capacity if you dry often
Top-tip: Try your best not to overfill your dryer, if you leave some room for your clothes to breathe they will dry faster. If in doubt - select a tumble dryer with a larger capacity than you need.
Spend less time ironing
Choose a tumble dryer with ProSense humidity control and leave your laundry a little damp to simplify ironing. Alternatively you can select a tumble dryer with steam to avoid the need for ironing entirely.
Save energy with an energy efficient dryer
Dryers are rated between A and G for energy efficiency (A being the most money-saving and eco-friendly). The more efficient the dryer the more money and energy you’ll save in use, which can add up to a lot of savings over the years.
