I have a Hoover tumble dryer, and it is on it's last legs. The motor is going, and also the bearings are wearing out.

I've had a repair guy out and he said it isn't worth the cost of the repair and to replace it.

If money was no object I would buy a Miele, but I really would rather not spend that much!

What do you have that has lasted pretty well and does a good job? It needs to hold a big load - 8 or 9kg - because I have a big drum washing machine.

Piglet - indeed not, washing is somewhat precise in this house grin

Dewdrop - our current one has a sensor and I definitely want one on the next one.

Shattered - see that is really tempting, but I do find myself wondering if they makes things in the same way these days.
My Mum has had her dryer for 15 years, it is a vented one rather than a condenser admittedly, but I do wonder whether they make things to last that long anymore.

if you want to pick best tumble dryer for your needs, you need to tell us more. For example, small families are better with compact tumble dryers while families of 8 or more need bigger. Read this review, it explains all.

I've just had my Beko tumble drier replaced under warranty well I've got a credit note as refuse to have another Beko. It died at four months old and when the repair man came he showed me the inside. It was cheap sharp metal and he cut his hands trying to retention it. The first repair was the capacitor then the drum and finally the motor burnt out.
