    New tumble dryer 4th Mar 18 at 9:25 AM
    We are looking to buy a new tumble dryer and would like to hear some recommendations if anyone can offer some? Looking for a condenser one (so no hole needed in wall), grey (to match washing machine) and have around £300 but could spend little more if necessary. Looked in Curry’s but not that impressed. Doesn’t need to take huge loads, just small clothing/towels/bedding. Any advice on brand/where to buy one would be much appreciated.

    I heard some good reviews about the hoover dynamic. Been also looking at some tumble dryer within my budget I think this is a good one.

    Probably a better selection at AO - although the gray/silver choice does limit things
    good delivery options too

    Hi

    If you want it to match the washing machine have you looked at the tumble dryers available from the make of washing machine you have? Anything else I!!!8217;m sure wouldn!!!8217;t match.

    Look at heat pump models.

    which washing machine do you have?

    Bosch.
    Avoid AO unless you like SPAM.
    And avoid Whirlpool brands including Hotpoint and Indesit.

    Miele - had ours for about 15 years. We collect the condensed water into 4L plastic milk bottles and use it in the steam iron - it's effectivly distilled water so markedly reduces the need to clean the iron!

    Collected water should be filtered to remove residual fluff.

    Join "Which?" for £1 and check their reviews.
    Nice to save.

    Bought a condensing one also to avoid a hole in the wall a little more than two years ago. Chose AEG and am very satisfied with the performance. Not noisy and does the basic job of drying the clothes well.

    Thanks all! Lots to look at. We have a Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine and they do a tumble dryer equivalent in grey actually! Will look at its reviews

    Mine was Beko and £369 or so, but it's really good. Fits a large load in too.
