We were bought this tumble dryer as a moving in gift for our new house, finally having space to put a tumble dryer.

We went for the condenser type because there is no need for a vent to the out side, which up here in the north west of Scotland is the last thing you want during a winter gale, believe me!

OPERATION..

The controls for the dryer are easy to understand and operate, the timer is settable up to 120 mins and is clearly marked. The heat setting is a 'push in/out' type with two options, low or high. There is a light that comes on when you need to empty the water bottle, but more about that latter on. The instruction book is fairly good, but i didnt pay to much attention to it.

INSTALLATION..

The dryer is quite heavy and i would advise you to sweet talk who ever delivers it to your home into getting it as close to its final resting point as they can! May be offer them a cuppa and they might unpack it for you? helpful because you need to lift it up off its wooden base it comes on and slide this base out of the way before resting the dryer back on the floor.

Installation is of course easy as there is no hose to mess about with, only the mains plug.

TECH STUFF..

The machine can handle 6kg of wet washing, this is what most washing machines take so its pretty much load for load. Energy rating is C, but in real terms its about 80pence per hour to run, we have a card meter for the electric and you can see how much money you use as you use it. A full load will take around an hour and a half to completly dry, costing £1.20, the less you put in, the quicker it will dry.
Hight is 85cm, Width is 59.5cm and Depth is 60cm. So should fit under most work tops.

GENERAL..

Back to the water bottle then, getting it out of the dryer can be a challenge, you first have to lift and slide a vent to remove it, then you can get at the bottle which holds 3.5L. The bottle is long and thin and when full weighs arround 3.5K, get that water moving about side to side and soon the floor and you will be covered!! I know from experince and wet legs!! So keep both hands on the bottle and go slow!!! Best thing is to empty it after every drying day as it fills up quickly!.
The fluff filter in the door will need cleaning regulary, just rub it with your hand to clean it, I still want to know where all that fluff comes from??? and why my clothes havent fallen apart yet, because there is a lot of fluff on my filter!! If the filter isnt cleaned the machine may not operate, but dont worry, just wipe the fluff off.
There is the condenser unit too, that just needs rinsed out under the taps in the bath to keep it clean.

Sounds like alot of maintaince, but each stage only takes about 20 secs to clean.


One added bonus is that while its running, alot of warm air is put into your house, which up here on the coast is a big advantage.

So if your looking for a dryer, go and have a look at this one, its well made and easy to use. I reccomend it.

I have a Creda dryer and love it. I wish I'd gone for a condensing model though, instead of the vented. Living in a flat, I can't knock a hole through the wall for the exhaust, the windows are really high up too and the hose won't stretch. I have one of those "condensers" (from Argos - £15 which you put ice in - really must write a review), it's useless though and I have to vacuum after using the dryer because of dust. Excellent op! Ciao for now - J

Great review - In Scotland you can't live without a tumble dryer - well you can but only if you want to live in damp clothes lol xxx
