John, Carlisle Retired

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Quiet, does not seem to increase room humidity, clothes not creased
Bad points:
Clothes feel slightly damp so still need to air for a while. Difficult to find extra-dry setting. On-line help links to about 30 documents many repeating each other and not clear what one to download - filled my download folder. Controls assume will be on ground level but ours is stacked.

Lester , Solihull, West Midlands Retired

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is a phenomenal machine. We've had it for 2 weeks so far and we are extremely pleased with it. We got it to replace a 10 year old machine which was very high on energy consumption for poor results.

It has a lot of programmes, based largely on the type of fabric being dried - including a mixed load - and the degree of dryness required. The degree of dryness is measured by sensors near the door opening and so far we have found these to be accurate within a fine margin, with excellent results.
Each time we use the machine we are getting better at "reading" the programmes to get the best result, and results continue to improve. As a catch-all it will also just run as a hot or cold timed drying cycle, which doesn't utilise the sensors.

The efficiency is excellent, with very quick self-adjusting drying times and very efficient use of energy. In normal running I believe the machine consumes less than 1 kilowatt, which is a great improvement on any previous machines we have owned.

The programmes and settings are intuitive, and the machine is very easy to use. The door is big, with a wide opening, and there is a drum light which stays on for about 30 seconds after the machine is started.

It comes with a frame that is assembled on the non-rotating part of the inside of the door frame so that you can dry shoes, trainers and large bulky garments like trousers without them rotating - the drum rotates about the fixed frame while the garment/shoes and the frame remains still.

We are doing the drying in half the time as we were previously, and all in all we are feeling smug about a very good buy!

Bad points:
This machine is on the expensive side, and I have seen a breakdown of overall cost of ownership which state that this machine will not recoup initial cost plus running costs over a cheaper, but less efficient machine, for a number of years. However, the drying experience with this machine, in terms of time saved, and overall usability, is so great that recouping costs is becoming less and less important to us. Even so, we will eventually break even.

Manufacturer's Description

The WT48Y700GB condenser dryer gives you an A++ energy rating thanks to its heat pump technology. Recapturing the heat from air as it leaves the drum and recirculating it means it will save you a whole lot of money on your electricity bills. Its 8kg drum has an internal light to illuminate any stray socks, and it’s self-cleaning so there’s no need to spend time doing it manually. Sensor drying means that it will adapt automatically to fit the load, so you get great results every time with next to no effort on your part.
