One simple question.


Especially bed sheets.

Yes and yes. But it's overpriced and takes bloody hours to dry anything! It also gets condensation on the inside of the window- not had a dryer do that before.

I don't have the samsung, but an AEG - and like Tronk it's unbelievable how frustratingly long it takes to dry everything.

It's also super-sensitive to fluff - I have to clean all three filters really frequently or it stops working.

I think the main problem is it seems to just gently huff warm air at the clothes, which is probably better for them, but I almost miss unloading steaming jeans with burning hot zips!

Omg I'm so glad I'm not the only one. It takes two settings, 2 maybe 4 times to dry my washing it is driving me potty.

I have the John Lewis one that is actually made by aeg. It takes forever and won't work if there is any fluff anywhere. But it doesn't shri k my clothes!!

If you had a spin dryer it would get an extra pint out of the washing & it would dry faster.

They spin at 2800rpm & the centrifugal drainage gets the water out better than the horizontal position the washing machine spins at.

I do and I love it but I always find i need to dry stuff for another 15 mins after it thinks it's finished to get stuff super dry.

I do find I need to clean the filter very often and use an old paintbrush to get the fluff off the metal by the filter. Then it works much better.

I have the John Lewis one as well. I've learnt to just ignore most of the settings and just use Extra Dry or whatever. And be quite organised - so load it the night before and set it to come on at 6.30 etc. It hates men's jeans and heavy hoodie type stuff.

But it's cheap to run. Our fuel bills have come down since getting it as, presumably, don't have the heating on so much to try to dry clothes. I' recently stacked mine on top of the washing machine and I thinks it's drying better.

I agree re the cheap to run. My electricity bill for the last 3 months when I've had the dryer is nearly half of what it was before! (With an old c rated dryer).

Must admit. I wouldn't notice any savings due to having air condition on in the house. Hoping will notice a difference in the winter tho. Although I feel the amount of times I have to put it on to dry it would cost more then my last tumble. Has anyone got any tips in how to get bedding dry. I've got superking I've tried just one sheet at a time, as well as all bedding nothing works.
