The AEG T65170AV tumble dryer seems to be well manufactured and it has a desirable stainless steel drum, rather than zinc-plated steel. Clothes are usually dried well, although a mixed load can produce variable results with some items coming out very dry, whilst other, heavier, items are still so wet they have to be put back in for another cycle. The tumble dryer is acceptably quiet. The 'Filter' light (which when lit indicates that the filter needs cleaning), seems to be over-sensitive. It lights up very quickly and long before there's very much fluff in the filter to clean out. The AEG vent hose is a problem, as it is manufactured with a non-standard (for the UK) right-hand threaded spiral. All available hose connectors/adaptors/etc. are manufactured for a left-hand threaded spiral. Consequently it is not possible to fit the AEG vent hose into my left-hand threaded wall vent adaptor. AEG's decision to supply a right-hand threaded vent hose has turned what should have been a quick and simple installation procedure into a problem that has yet to be resolved. It looks like a length of AEG's right-hand threaded vent hose will have to be spliced onto a length of standard left-hand threaded vent hose using an inline slip connector. Untidy!
