3kg dryer,condenser or vent,washer dryer doesnt actually dry

Postby smilinglou » Tue Aug 24, 2010 11:31 am

Is it big enough, I have enough nappies for 2 loads of washing and lots of clothes, I wont be using the dryer all the time just to catch up or if it's really difficult weather, also it's energy rating D, that's bad isn't it :-? it's the only one near us on ebay :giggle:

A couple more questions:

Condenser or vented dryer?
We have a washer dryer but it makes the clothes nice and hot, damp and very steamy but not dry, anyone know why?

energy rating of d is bad but lots of tumblers are a d,

3kg is tiny and wouldnt be worthwhile for me, i try to only use mine when weather is bad, but that tends to end up being at least one full load once a day... and mines a 6kg

think about how big your washing machine is. mine only just fits 2 day's of nappies and is 6kg. but a 3kg dryer would then only fit half of one load. which in theory is fine if you only want to use it for the odd item, but when it's peeing down with rain and you've got a whole wet load and no dry nappies/clothes, chances are you'll want to put the whole lot in at once.

personally i wouldn't. U can't dry much, i wouldn't get one even if i were single. Condenser though for sure, unless u have a vent lit installed in ur house

Def go for a condenser dryer. D rating is bad, our new one which is the same as our old one is A and wasn't expensive at all, we bagged it for £85 and it is a 7.5kg load!
Try Comet auction website, you can pick up a bargain there some times http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source ... RXtKHmiv5Q
