Product information

Please note: This product is not available in our shops for viewing. However, you can still place your order in store.

Every fabric in your laundry will be safely cared for with the huge 8kg capacity Zanussi ZDC68560W tumble dryer.

Thanks to a brilliant SmartSense+ sensor, this machine shuts off as soon as clothes are dry: this means that even the most delicate fabrics will not be exposed to over-drying. Additionally, the AutoSense+ system has 5 automatic drying levels, and bases the drying time on the humidity level of the load. Even the heaviest loads will dry in one go - no need to constantly check your laundry!

You can easily enjoy fewer loads, less hassle and more free time, as the ZDC68560W will handle your household’s laundry with ease with its massive 8kg capacity drum. The bigger drum also ensures a better hot air flow through the machine, resulting in faster drying times.

Ironing is easier with this dryer too, as it provides your clothes from the dryer almost crease-free with its two-way tumbling action. Even when you are drying woollen garments, the dedicated wool cycle minimises drum movement to protect and care for wool items.

excellent Can take a bit getting used to. Dries really well. 22 March 2014
Best dryer ever Fantastic, best one I've ever had,and over the past 28 years and 4 children,I've had a few. just remember to empty the condenser and de fluff every time you use it, good selection of programs.just a tiny tiny hic up but don't let it put you off, won't dry woollens that are too wet, but just wrap them in a dry towel for a while before you try to dry them and it's ok, in fact I would probably marry this dryer, defiantly recommend this one. 19 March 2014
worst product ever This machine is so bad .The first machine arrived september 2013 and broke down 6 weeks later stopping every 5 minutes and indicating the water tank was full when it was empty. It was repaired with a new panel board but broke down 2 days after that. Was replaced by John Lewis with the same model and guess what? The same problem again 5 weeks after purchase. Apparently the float is too big for the housing and needs to be replaced. So a manufacturing fault! Very disappointed with this product as it hasn't worked for a month out of 7 months. 17 March 2014
Dryer sensor is poor We bought this dryer to deal with a large family household. The size was good but ultimately the sensor in the machine only works if the clothes are really damp. If something is slightly damp or parts of the clothing are damp like the waste on a pair of jeans then the machine won't sense it so won't dry at all. So the big problem with this machine is that there is no manual over ride. Which I think goes to show that the designers on this product haven't done enough research. So after 3 months of use I would say we are very disappointed. 04 February 2014
Wonderful!! I have only used the dryer a few times so far, however I am well and truely impressed and wish I had bought one before. My old dryer was a vented one and such a nuisance to use, this is great, so easy and efficient. 29 January 2014
Good for cottons and bed linen I bought this at a much lower priced than advertised. Firstly, the auto sense does get some getting used to. At first I didn't believe it would work but I tested it out and it does dryer in a much faster time than you think and cuts off. The timer will start at 2hrs for example but it only takes an 1hr. Great! However, if you want to dry delicates the auto sense technology can leave things a little damp. My advice is to set cotton towels and bed linen to Extra Dry and cotton bed linen/underwear/ to Strong Dry. If you prefer things slightly less dry you can choose Cupboard Dry setting. I'm still trying out other settings but nothing is bone or over dry which is a big plus, as an old traditional high or low setting machine can make them. At first they feel a little damp still when you take them out but the minute the air hits them they are dry. It's just a strange feature of the auto sense I guess. If you want a high or low heat setting only dryer this is not the dryer for you. If you want to experiment and save a bit of money on drying time then this machine is for you. You will need to experiment a little for the best drying times and settings. I think this is the same for all auto sense dryers. Machine is easy to clean but people with arthritic hands might find the lift out of the lint catcher in the drum of the machine a little tricky until you get used to it. The water tank is huge and at the top of the machine. Ignore warning lights to empty and clean and just switch off the machine and do it next time if you like. I've given it 4 stars but wish it had a high and low function as a fall back. It does have a timer function but this is in delicates and you have to click intensive button if you want clothes to dry. Timer delay is also a plus. Not bad - but takes some getting used to and I wouldn't have paid more than the sale price. 10 January 2014
Lightning Fast Dryer Wow ! What a great dryer this is. It did 8kg of our 2 year old's washing including a towel, sheets, duvet cover, pillowcases etc in 1 hour and 5 minutes ! I am impressed, that was on cupboard dry setting. Very easy to use and easy to clean and empty the filters. Delivered by polite man and woman delivery team. Thank you for a great product and great service ! 08 January 2014
Efficient and Simple to Use Machine is in regular use and we have found that it dries faster than the machine it replaced (a Which? best buy when purchased) and that it is easier to use. It is also quiet in operation and doesn't have an irritating audible alarm. So far we are very pleased with it. The only feature of the machine that we are doubtful about is a door catch that works by pressing the door inwards at a marked point, but it has worked well so far. Our last machine lasted only 21 months before it conked out, we hope this one will last longer. This Zanussi was almost a Which? best buy, but so far it is outperforming a machine that had been a Which? best buy. 08 January 2014
