Score 4.0/10
Good points:
As a previous owner of a Zanussi vented tumble dryer that worked without hitch for ~12 years, I had high hopes that a new, more modern version would be even better. Build quality and options offered appear good....but see bad points.
Bad points:
First use was a medium load of mixed cottons, including two small bath towels. The suggested programme was over 2 hours (bit of a shock after the previous machine that dried such a load in ~50 or 60 mins), after the cycle finished many of the small items were wet at the edges and both towels were still very damp. Put the towels back in on a timed 1 hour cycle..and they were still not dry. Second load was 5 towels, 3 hand towels and two medium bath towels, again the programme cycle didn't dry them and an extra 1 hour got them to the point that I hung them on a rack in the sun to finish off i.e over 3 hours 20 mins and still not dry!. Note that both loads had been washed and spun dry at 1600 rpm. Contacted supplier and returned the item as faulty. I/we were enthusiastic about the "heat pump" technology on this unit and hoped it would save us money in lower electricity costs - this unit may have been faulty or the technology isn't quite there yet?

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Efficiency
Cost for this specification
Drying capability
Noise
Bad points:
None - if it doesn't dry to your satisfaction, put it on the correct cycle and/or put it on again. At a third of the running cost of a normal unit, you could put it on 3 times and be no worse off!

Good points:
It dries clothes – ultimately
Bad points:
Don't buy this dryer – it's very expensive – I'm always prepared to pay more for a tumble dryer because the more expensive ones tend to do better on easy care cycles. My last tumble dryer, also a Zanussi gave me dry crease free shirts. This dryer gives me wet creased shirts. I am very disappointed – Once more, don't buy this dryer.

Manufacturer's Description

Thanks to its innovative heat-pump technology, this front loaded Zanussi ZTH485 condenser tumble dryer is 40% more energy efficient than an A rated model saving you money on those costly electricity bills.

The AutoSense+ system in this dryer automatically selects the right drying time for each and every load, and the dryer also senses when the clothes are dried to the level specified. The automatic two-way tumbling action helps prevent creases from forming, which means less ironing.

A range of programmes are on hand to help with all of your drying needs. Choose from speciality programmes such as wool refresh, baby cycle and jeans. An easy to read LCD display keeps you updated at all times. A delay start function enables total flexibility.
