Buying a clothes dryer; what to look out for
Compare different types of dryers
The fill weight is one of the most important features of a clothes dryer. It determines how many kilograms of laundry will fit into the drum per drying cycle. We recommend that you buy a dryer with at least as much fill weight as your washing machine. This ensures that all your wet laundry fits into the drum of your dryer. Are you buying a new dryer and washing machine? Then use the overview below as an indication:
- A 6 or 7 kg dryer is suitable for a household of 1 or 2 people.
- A household of 3 or 4 people needs a dryer with 8 kg fill weight.
- A household of 5 or more people needs a dryer with 9 kg or more of filling power.
Ease of use
The build quality of a dryer says something about its sturdiness and expected lifespan. In terms of build quality, all dryers are divided into basic, medium and premium classes. If the build quality is not mentioned with a dryer, the brand and price can also be an indication of the build quality. According to the Consumers’ Association, these are the best brands for clothes dryers: Miele, Bosch, Siemens, AEG and Samsung. Of these brands, AEG, Bosch and Siemens have condenser dryers in their range. These brands are generally more expensive, and therefore score less well in the category “price-quality ratio” according to research by the Consumers’ Association. Brands that do score well in this category are Beko, Indesit and Zanussi. Zanussi also produces condenser dryers.
Despite Siemens falling under the ‘more expensive brands’, the Siemens WT43N202NL was awarded as the ‘best buy’ for a condenser dryer according to the Consumers’ Association, because it dries well and has quickly dried your clothes.
