Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between condenser and vented tumble dryers?
ACondenser tumble dryers work by pulling the water out of the clothes and storing it in a water trap, where it stays until emptied. Vented tumblers extract the water from the clothes as steam, and pass it through a vent in the back of the machine so it can be disposed of outside.
QWhat are the benefits of condenser vs. vented tumble dryers?
ACondenser tumble dryers are easier to set up, and don't require any special modifications to the room - however they do require the condenser unit to be regularly emptied to remain in peak condition. Vented tumble dryers can run without needing maintenance, but require a hole drilled in an outside wall to fit the vent.
QWhat is the average noise level of a tumble dryer?
ATumble dryers can be quite noisy, with an average noise level of around 65Db. This means they will be loud enough to be disruptive when in full spin cycle, and can be easily heard several rooms away.

Tumble Dryer Buying Guide

Tumble dryers take damp, clean clothes and rotate them in a heated drum, removing the moisture from the clothes to dry them quickly and effectively. There are two main types of dryers - condenser and vented. Here are the main advantages and differences between them:

Condenser Tumble Dryers

These dryers work by taking the moisture from the damp clothes and storing it in a water trap, which must be emptied after every couple of cycles. These dryers have no need for hoses or vents to remove the moisture, and so are more suitable for smaller apartments, or places where setting up an outside vent would be troublesome. However the tradeoff is a need to empty the water trap frequently, otherwise you may find the dryer not working as effectively.

Vented Tumble Dryers

These tumble dryers work by separating the moisture from the damp clothes, then venting the damp air outside via a hose. The venting means that there is no need to empty water traps after every cycle, making it simpler to use. However the dryer may require specialist installation, especially if the vent needs to be placed through an exterior wall.

Sensor Drying

Some more advanced models of tumble dryer will have a moisture sensor installed. This sensor detects the dampness of the clothes, and automatically adjusts the cycle to give just enough time for the clothes to be completely dried. This saves both time and money, since the dryer will automatically stop once the clothes are dry.

All our tumble dryers are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used per cycle, and the cheaper the dryer will be to run. Look for a dryer graded at A++ or above for the best efficiency in daily use.

Capacity

The capacity of the drum in your tumble dryer will determine how many clothes you can fit in a single cycle. Drum capacity is measured in Kg, with a single Kg being equivalent to a single outfit. Bigger dryers have bigger capacities, which may be necessary for families - single people and couples may find it far cheaper and more energy efficient to buy a smaller dryer.

Programs

Most models of tumble dryer contain several different programs for clothing of different material, as well as different temperatures and spin levels for more delicate pieces of clothing. While not all of these programs may be necessary, more programs is generally a good sign of a higher-end and more capable tumble dryer.

Many dryers also contain an anti-crease setting - this causes the the drum to rotate unheated at the end of cycles, in order to minimise wrinkling on laundry. This setting is extremely helpful if you plan on leaving laundry tumbling while you go out, or overnight. If left unmoved, your cleaned laundry will develop unsightly creases, as the clothing is all jumbled up and folded at strange angles from the spin drying. However periodically rotating the drum causes the laundry to shift anew, stopping creases developing.

A larger drum capacity means more clothes can be dried at once.

Drying Systems

The drying system shows the technology used by the tumbler to dry clothes. Different systems have both positives and negatives.

We found 419 tumble dryers that are heat pump tumble dryers, which makes heat pump the most common drying system amongst new tumble dryers. We found 398 laundry dryers that are condenser tumble dryers, making condenser the second most frequently found drying system amongst new laundry dryers.

Noise Levels

'Noise Level' denotes how much noise the dryer makes when it's running, measures in decibels (dB).

Across the range of laundry dryers, the noise levels range from 40dB to 75dB. The noise levels of most laundry dryers range from 65dB to 67dB. The Hotpoint AQC9BF7E1, which sells for $363.08, has the loudest noise level and is a 69dB noise level tumbler. The tumble dryer with the quietest noise level is the Samsung DVE52M7750W, which is a 40dB noise level tumble dryer and sells for $449.00.

Less noise makes for a nicer atmosphere while your washing is drying, and means the machine is less likely to disturb and annoy people.
