Vented vs condenser
I Vented models These take the damp air produced by drying clothes and expel it from the room usually through a flexible exhaust hose hung out of an open window or connected to a permanent vent through a wall. Pros: Theyre cheaper and generally use less energy than condenser models. Cons: Youll need to install the dryer near a window or outside wall and the exhaust hose must be kept short and straight otherwise theres a risk of fire. Installing a permanent vent means drilling through your wall. I Condenser models With this type of dryer, the moist, hot air is cooled inside the machine and the resulting water is collected in a removable water reservoir. However, with a bit of know-how, most condenser dryers can also be plumbed straight into a drain. Pros: You have more freedom over where you install the dryer it neednt be near a window or wall. Cons: Theyre more expensive. If you choose a poor model, youll still have to cope with damp air and the possibility of mildew. You need to empty the reservoir regularly if it isnt plumbed in. Cons:You can inadvertently choose drying times which are too long, and over-drying clothes makes them stiff and more difficult to iron. It can take a while to learn which times work best for different sizes of load and types of fabric. I Sensor models These detect the moisture in your washing and stop the program automatically when its dry enough. Pros: Theyre very simple to operate, and drying times tend to be shorter than those of timer models. Theres less danger of your clothes ending up overdried and stiff than with timer models. Cons: Theyre more expensive than timer models. You might be limited to a few set periods if you want to choose your own drying time.
Some condenser dryers dont collect all the water
load. They are slower and inefficient to use if you want to dry a lot of washing, and theyre not as easy to load because they have small doors. And pushing clothes inside them can make the tumble dryer move about. The same basic dryer is sold under several different brands. The Creda, Hotpoint, Indesit and Crusader compacts are all the same basic model. I Built-in Integrated, or built-in, models are hidden behind a kitchen cabinet door, but there are fewer models to choose from. Again, the same basic model is available under several brand names.
I Installation Vented driers need to be sited near a window or where you can create a permanent vent through the wall. Condenser dryers are more flexible; some can be plumbed straight into a drain, while others rely on you emptying the water reservoir regularly. Some condenser dryers dont collect all the water, so should be used in a wellventilated area to avoid creating mildew. I Capacity and creasing Most dryers have a maximum capacity of either 6 or 7kg of dry cotton washing. Although machines with 8, 9 or even 10kg capacities are now available, most people dont fill their washing machine to capacity, so wouldnt make best use of a 10kg dryer. Most machines leave clothes creased. Even clothes dried in the machines that have the best creasing scores would still need ironing.
Other types of dryer
I Compacts Compact dryers are about 20% smaller than a full-sized tumble dryer, but can dry only half as much washing per full
Timer vs sensor
I Timer models With timer models, you decide the duration by turning the machines dial to a specific time or program label for example, the cupboard-dry program. Pros: Theyre the cheapest type. You select your own drying times, so you know how long it will take.

Save pounds with our tips on energy-efficient drying. I What do energy ratings on tumble dryers tell you? Energy-class labels on tumble dryers are meant to help you choose a more energy-efficient model. The classes range from A (the highest rating) to G (the lowest). Generally speaking, tumble dryers use a lot of energy, so most models are C-rated. However, weve found that the labels dont always correspond with how much electricity a machine uses to dry a load. Also, the energy class of a tumble dryer depends on which program the manufacturer selects for the test. So, for example, the White Knight CL 847 is A-rated but only because White Knight elected to test it on a special lowenergy program, which can take up to seven hours to dry a load. We aim to make our own
energy-consumption ratings more realistic. We use four different programs, which reveals wider differences between models than the energy labels do. You can find our ratings in the product summaries. I Energy-efficient drying Even though most tumble dryers have a C-class rating, the energy they use varies by around a third. And, with a million tumble dryers sold in the UK every year, that adds up; a washing line is far more energy-efficient. If you bought one of ourA-rated Which? Best Buy tumble dryers for example the AEGElectrolux T59800 Lavatherm (se p8) you would save nearly 31 a year compared with a G-rated product. However, even if you dont opt for an A-rated dryer there are a few things you can do to use less energy. Try to fit the maximum load in your tumble dryer every time. Use a high spin speed on your washing
machine to get your washing as dry as you can. Clean the lint filter every time you use the machine. A blocked filter prevents the hot air from circulating freely, so clothes take longer to dry. Make sure the room the dryer is in is well ventilated. This stops the tumble dryer from overheating. If it overheats, it takes longer to finish drying a load. With sensor models, dry clothes for ironing together with other clothes. Start the load with an iron-dry setting, remove the clothes for ironing, and then put the rest on a cupboard-dry program. I Are there any energy-saving dryers? Tumble dryers use a relatively large amount of energy. White Knight introduced the firstArated dryer to the UK in 2003, now called the 84AW. AEG-Electrolux followed in 2005 with the T59800 and John Lewis in 2006 with the JLTDC01.
Is a washer-dryer the all-singing, all-dancing solution for a small kitchen? Read on
If youre pushed for space, you may be tempted by a washer-dryer rather than a separate washing machine and tumbledryer. Sometimes this may be cheaper, too: for example, our John Lewis Best Buy is 58 less than its cheapest ownbrand washing machine and tumbledryer. You also have a greater choice of models these days, and larger drum sizes are now available. Despite this, a dual-purpose machine will mean compromises. Some wash clothes well, but for drying theyre usually slower, less efficient and take a smaller load than a decent tumble-dryer. This may not matter to you only just over one in four people in our survey regularly uses their machine for drying. Our Best Buys (p17) have lots of useful features. The AEG-Electrolux and John Lewis machines cost 500 less than the Miele and score only slightly less. The Tricity Bendix WDR1241 (p18) is worth considering as a budget buy, even though its not a Best Buy. Bosch and Zanussi-Electrolux were updating their range as we tested, so their models dont feature here.
HOW TO BUY
What you should look for
WASHING PROGRAMS Programs at different temperatures for cottons, man-made fibres and delicates are standard for washer-dryers. Some machines have options such as soak, stain removal, extra rinse, rapid, intensive and half load
DELAYED START Some models let you program them to start washing between one and 24 hours later. This means you can do the washing overnight to take advantage of cheap electricity. If you use delayed start at night, fit a smoke alarm nearby
Questions to consider
I WHAT TYPE? Like washing machines, freestanding washerdryers are easy to fit under a worktop. Built-in (integrated) models hide behind a kitchen cabinet door, but there are fewer models to choose from. I FINDING THE MODEL Retailers such as John Lewis and Currys will order a model for you. Independent electrical stores can bend over backwards to track down any model, and many manufacturers keep lists of dealers. Online stores can offer big savings, but check delivery charges and customer reviews before buying. I DELIVERY AND DISPOSAL Delivery usually costs between 15 na 20. Under the WEEE directive (see p4) householders are not banned from disposing of WEEE in their bin, but doing so can be harmful to the environment. I INSTALLATION Some retailers include this as part of delivery. Independent shops often offer this as an incentive. Place machines on an even surface to prevent noise and vibration. Use the adjustable feet to ensure the machine is level.
VARIABLE SPIN SPEEDS These help protect woollens and other delicate items. Its useful if the default spin speed for your machine is higher than 1,000 revolutions per minute (rpm). This is usually indicated by having the numbers 12, 13, 14 or 16 in the products model name (12 representing 1,200rpm, for example)
DRYING Machines usually dry about half as much as they can wash, so you need to remove half the load for drying. Clothes are easier to iron when they contain about 12 per cent moisture. This isnt something that you can assess yourself, so automatic programs and suggested iron-dry times can be useful. All our Best Buys have iron-dry programs

! Keep this instruction booklet on hand in order to refer to it when necessary. Take it with you when you move, and, should you sell this appliance or pass it on to another party, make sure that this booklet is supplied along with the dryer so that the new owner may be informed about warnings and suggestions on how the dryer works. ! Read these instructions carefully; the following pages contain important information on installation and suggestions on how the appliance works. ! Ensure that the end of the tube is not directed toward the air intake vent at the rear of the dryer. ! The vent tube should not exceed 2.4 metres in length and should be kept free of any possible accumulation of fluff, lint and water by shaking it out frequently. Always ensure that the tube is not squashed. Permanent venting In conjunction with the vent tube we recommend using a Wall/Window Vent Kit, available at a retail location or the nearest Spare Parts Dealer. Wall mounting 1. Leave an opening in the wall to the left of the dryers proposed position. 2. Keep the tube as short and straight as possible to prevent condensed moisture from backing up into the dryer. 3. Similarly, the duct in the wall should slope downwards towards the outside. Window mounting 1. With a stacked dryer the hole in the window should ideally be made below the vent. 2. The tube should be kept as short as possible.
Where to put your dryer
Place your dryer at a distance from gas ranges, stoves, heaters, or cook tops because flames can damage the appliance. If you are going to install the appliance under a work counter, be sure to leave a 10mm space between the top and any other objects on or above the machine and a 15mm space between the sides and lateral furnishings or walls. This is to ensure proper air circulation. Make sure that the back vents are not obstructed. Make sure you put your dryer in an environment that is not damp and has proper air circulation throughout.
The Dryer dries your laundry by drawing in cool, clean and relatively dry air, heating it, and then distributing it through the clothes as they are gently tumbled. For optimum performance, the moist air is then blown out through a vent tube at the back of the dryer. When the dryer is in use, there has to be adequate ventilation to avoid the back flow of gases into the room from appliances burning other fuels, including open fires. Mobile venting A vent tube must always be fitted when the dryer is used in conjunction with Mobile Venting. The tube must be fitted securely into the back of the dryer (see Dryer Description). If possible, it is always best to connect the tube to a permanent outlet close to the dryer. If permanent installation is not possible, the dryer will work just as well with the tube passing through a partly-opened window.
Depending on how often you use your dryer, it is essential that areas A and B are checked periodically to remove lint or debris. The vent tube adaptor must be fitted securely thus preventing any humid air from being emitted back into the room. ! The Dryer should not be pushed so far back that the tube adaptor is pulled out of position or the tube is squashed or bent. ! The tube should be kept clear of the air intake vent and kinks or U bends must be avoided as these will obstruct the tube or trap condensation.
Open window venting The end of the tube should be directed downwards, to prevent warm moist air from condensing in the room or in the dryer. Changing the plug The wires in the power cord are coloured in accordance with the following:
Green and Yellow (Earth) wire to terminal marked E, symbol , or coloured green and yellow. Blue (Neutral) wire to terminal marked N or coloured black. Cord clamp
13A ASTA approved fuse to BS1362. Brown (Live) wire to terminal marked L or coloured red.
! Ensure that the dryer is adequately ventilated and that the end of the vent tube is not directed towards the air intake duct. ! The vent tube must always be fitted for optimum performance. ! Make sure that the vent tube and air intake vents are not obstructed or blocked. ! The dryer must not recycle exhaust air. ! Misusing a tumble dryer may create a fire hazard. ! Do not discharge exhaust air into a flue which is used for exhaust fumes from other appliances that burn gas or other fuels.
Make sure of the following before you insert the plug into the the electrical socket: q The socket must be grounded. q The socket must be able to sustain the machines maximum power, which is indicated on the rating label (see Dryer Description). q Power voltage must be within the values indicated on the rating label (see Dryer Description). q The socket must be compatible with the dryers plug. Should this not be the case, replace the plug or the socket. ! The dryer must not be installed outdoors, even if the space is sheltered. It can be very dangerous if it is exposed to rain or storms. ! Once installed, the dryers electrical wire and plug must be within easy reach. ! Do not use extension cords. ! The power cord must not be bent or squashed. ! The power cord supplied is fitted with a BS1363 plug and a 13 amp BS1362 fuse. If you need to replace the fuse, use only those rated at 13 amp (13A) and ASTA approved to BS1362. Moulded plug ! The plug must not be used without the fuse cover in place. If a replacement fuse holder/cover is required, it must be of the same colour coding or wording as shown on the base of the plug. Replacements are available from authorised dealers.
! If the plug being replaced is a non-rewirable type, then the cut-off plug must be disposed of safely. DO NOT leave it where it can be inserted into a socket and create a shock hazard. ! The power supply cord should be checked periodically and replaced by a cord specially prepared for this dryer and fitted only by authorised technicians (see Service). New or longer power cords are supplied at an extra charge by authorised dealers. ! The manufacturer denies any responsibility should any of these rules not be followed. ! If in doubt about any of the above consult a qualified electrician.

Installation Description Start and Programmes
Easy Iron Programme
Easy Iron is a short 10 minute programme (8 minutes of heat followed by a 2 minute cool tumble period) which fluffs the fibres of clothing that have been left in the same position/location for an extended period of time. The cycle relaxes the fibres and makes them easier to iron and fold. ! Easy Iron is not a drying programme and should not be used for wet articles of clothing. For best results: 1. Do not load more than the maximum capacity. These numbers refer to the dry weight: Fabric Maximum load Cotton and Cotton mixtures 2.5kg Synthetics 2kg Denim 2kg 2. Unload the dryer immediately after the end of the programme, hang, fold or iron the articles and put them away in the closet. Should this not be possible repeat the programme. The Easy Iron effect varies from one fabric to the next. It works well on traditional fabrics like Cotton or Cotton mix, and less well on acrylic fibres and on materials such as Tencel.
Laundry Warnings and Suggestions
Special shoes This is a programme to dry one pair of sports shoes sized 37-46 (4-11). q The shoes must have been washed and spun at a minimum spin speed of 400rpm. q They must be used with the shoe rack provided. If you tumble shoes in the drum you will damage your dryer. q Remove the filter from its position in the front of the dryer and fit the rack. q Tuck the laces inside the shoes and load shoes with toes down and soles facing you. q Drying times will vary dependant on the size and style of shoe. If shoes are not completely dry at the end of the programme, run the programme again. ! Do not dry shoes with Gel inserts or flashing lights. ! Only dry shoes made from Synthetics or Canvas materials. ! When finished remove shoe rack and replace the filter.
Maintenance and Care Troubleshooting
Special sports This is a programme for tumble dryer safe garments, such as Tracksuits and Shorts marked with the symbol. q It can be used for load sizes up to 1.5kg q We recommend that garments are turned inside out before drying. q This programme will take up to 130 minutes. The actual time will vary depending on the size and density of the load and the spin speed used in your washer. q Loads dried using this programme are usually ready to wear, but on some heavier garments the edges may be slightly damp.
! If the On/Off light is not lit; Press the ON/OFF button and then select programme.

Sorting your laundry
Wash Care Labels Look at the labels on your garments, especially when tumble drying for the first time. The following symbols are the most common: May be tumble dried Do not tumble dry Tumble dry at high heat setting
Check symbols on clothing labels to make sure that the articles can be tumble dried. Sort laundry by fabric type. Empty pockets and check buttons. Close zippers and hooks and tie loose belts and strings. Wring out each item in order to eliminate as much excess water as possible.
! Do not load dripping wet clothes into the dryer. Tumble dry at low heat setting Maximum load size Items not suitable for tumble drying Do not load more than maximum capacity. These numbers refer to dry weight: Natural fibres: 6kg max (13lb) Synthetic fibres: 3kg max (6.6lb) ! DO NOT overload the dryer as this could result in reduced drying performance.

At the end of a drying cycle, cottons could still be damp if you grouped cottons and synthetics together. If this happens simply give them an additional short period of drying.
Special clothing items
Blankets and Bedspreads: acrylic items (Acilan, Courtelle, Orion, Dralon) must be dried with special care on LOW heat setting. Avoid drying for a long period of time. Pleated or creased garments: read the manufacturers drying instructions on the garment. Starched articles: do not dry these with nonstarched items. Make sure that as much of the starch solution is removed from the load as possible before placing it in the dryer. Do not over-dry: the starch will become powdery and leave your clothing limp, which defeats the purpose of starch.
Times are approximate and can vary depending upon:
Amount of water retained in clothes after spin cycle: towels and delicates retain a lot of water. Fabrics: items that are the same type of fabric but different textures and thicknesses may not have the same drying time. Quantity of laundry: single items or small loads may take longer to dry. Dryness: If you are going to iron some of your clothes, they can be taken out while still a bit damp. Others can be left longer if you need them to be completely dry. Heat setting. Room temperature: if the room where the dryer is located is cold, it will take longer for the dryer to dry your clothes. Bulk: some bulky items can be tumble dried with care. We suggest that you remove these items several times, shake them out, and return them to the dryer until finished.
The table below presents APPROXIMATE drying times in minutes. Weights refer to dry garments: Cottons High (full) Heat Drying times 800-1000rpm in washing machine

! Do not over-dry your clothes. All fabrics contain a little natural moisture, which keeps them soft and fluffy.

This tumble dryer has been designed for home, and not professional use. This dryer must be used by adults, and the instructions in this booklet should be followed carefully. Do not touch the appliance while barefoot or with wet hands or feet. Unplug the machine by pulling on the plug, not the cord. Children must not be in proximity of the dryer when in use. After using the dryer, turn it off and unplug it. Keep the door closed to make sure that children do not use it as a toy. The appliance must be installed correctly and have proper ventilation. The air intake vents behind the machine, the outlet vents and the vent tube should never be obstructed (see Installation). Never direct the vent tube outlet towards the air intake at the back of the machine. Never allow the tumble dryer to recycle exhaust air. Never use the dryer on carpeting where the pile height would prevent air from entering the dryer from the base. Check to see if the dryer is empty before loading it. The back of the dryer could become very hot. Never touch it while in use. Do not use the dryer unless the filter is securely in place (see Maintenance). Do not use liquid fabric softeners in the dryer, add it to the final rinse of your wash. Do not overload the dryer (see Laundry) for maximum loads. Do not load items that are dripping wet. Tumble dry items only if they have been washed with detergent and water, rinsed and been through the spin cycle. It is a fire hazard to dry items that HAVE NOT been washed with water. Carefully check all instructions on clothing labels (see Laundry). Do not dry garments that have been treated with chemical products. Never dry articles that are contaminated with flammable substances (petrol, oil, paint, hair spray, creams, cooking fat or oils). Do not tumble dry rubber, foam rubber, plastic, plastic foam, nappy pants or liners, polythene or paper.
Do not tumble dry large, very bulky items. Do not tumble dry acrylic fibres at high temperatures. Complete each programme with its Cool Tumble Phase. Do not turn off the dryer when there are still warm items inside. Clean the filter after each use (see Maintenance). Do not allow lint to collect around the dryer. Never climb on top of the dryer. It could result in damage. Always follow electrical standards and requirements (see Installation). Always buy original spare parts and accessories (see Service).
Recycling and disposal information
As part of our continued commitment to helping the environment, we reserve the right to use quality recycled components to keep down customer costs and minimise material wastage. q Disposing of the packaging material: follow local regulations, so the packaging can be recycled. q To minimise risk of injury to children, remove the door and plug - then cut off mains cable, flush with the appliance. Dispose of these parts separately to ensure that the appliance can no longer be plugged into a mains socket.
Disposal of old electrical appliances
The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old household electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on human health and the environment. The crossed out wheeled bin symbol on the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it must be separately collected. Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for information concerning the correct disposal of their old appliance.
Saving energy and respecting the environment
Wring out items to eliminate excess water before tumble drying (if you use a washing machine first, select a high spin cycle). Doing this will save time and energy during drying. Always dry full loads - you save energy: single items or small loads take longer to dry. Clean the filter after each use to contain energy consumption costs (see Maintenance).
Switching off the electricity
Unplug your dryer when not using it, when cleaning it and during all maintenance operations.
Check the drum after each cycle
Turn the drum manually in order to remove small items (handkerchiefs) that could have been left behind.
Clean the filter after each cycle
The filter is an important part of your dryer: it accumulates lint and fluff that is formed while drying. Small items could also become trapped in the filter. When finished drying, therefore, clean the filter by rinsing it under running water or with your vacuum cleaner. Should the filter become clogged up, the airflow inside the dryer will be seriously compromised: drying times lengthen and you will consume more energy. It may also damage your dryer. The filter is found in front of the dryer trim (see diagram).
Cleaning the drum
! Do not use abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel cleaning agents to clean the drum. A coloured film may start to appear on the stainless steel drum, this may be caused by a combination of water and, or cleaning agents such as fabric conditioner from the wash. This coloured film will not affect the dryer performance.
Description Start and Programmes
External parts in metal or plastic and rubber parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Periodically check the vent tube and any permanent venting fixture to make sure that there has been no accumulation of fluff or lint, and remove it. Remove lint that collects around the filter and the outlet vents.
Removing the filter: 1. Pull the plastic grip of the filter upwards (see diagram). 2. Clean the filter and replace it correctly. Ensure the filter is fully located flush into the tumble dryer trim. ! Do not use the dryer without replacing the filter.
! Do not use solvents or abrasives. ! Your dryer uses special bearing components which do not need lubrication. ! Have your dryer checked regularly by authorised technicians to ensure electrical and mechanical safety (see Service).
