Q & As

Siemens WT48Y801GB Condenser Tumble Dryer, 8kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, White 3 5 2 2
Great, if you have all day for clothes to dry I bought the previous manifestation of this iQ700 heat-pump condenser in early 2011. It worked fine at first, though markedly slower in drying than a long-serving, basic AEG that had preceded it for over a decade. I put that down to the heat-pump technology - though longer drying times rather offset claims to use less electricity. After two years, however, drying times were getting silly - 3 hours,4 hours and longer for cupboard dry cottons. Just before the guarantee expired, an engineer came, stripped it down, declared it perfectly maintained and in good order. He said he could find nothing wrong. Drying times improved a little, however, after his visit. After a few months, however, they are worse than before, despite continued diligent fluff cleaning etc on our part. The "time left" indicator is useless, regularly registering the same time for hours at a time. Last, modest sized cotton wash was on five hours and still not dry. Useless. A very expensive mistake. I'm planning to switch to a conventional technology dryer. 17 December 2013
For the conscience consumer The beauty of this top of the range tumble dryer has to be the A+++ energy rating. Ideal for any large faminly or the energy conscious comsumer. With the self cleaning heat pump condenser you only have to clean the lint filter, making it less of a fuss between uses. This appliance can also be plumbed into your waste pipe so no need to empty the condenser drawer. This appliance also comes with additional accessory of a woolens basket so you can dry anything from your winter woolies to sports shoes. Even the little ones favourite soft toy can be dry in time for bed. 12 December 2013
