Best buy tumble dryer

The fact that Miele, Bosch, Siemens, AEG and Samsung are the best brands for tumble dryers does not mean that they also have the best buy in their range. Dryers of these brands are generally much more expensive, especially Miele scores poorly when it comes to value for money, according to research by the Consumers’ Association. Do you need a new tumble dryer and want to know what the best buy is? Then take a look at our top 5 now!

Best buy washer dryer; what to look for

You should not underestimate buying a new tumble dryer. Not only because of the price, but also because there is more to it than you might think. Dryers have a number of specifications that determine whether a particular dryer suits your family or not. Because sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees when buying a dryer, we have compiled a list of tips for you. The following tips explain exactly what you need to consider when buying the best dryer for your household.
Types of dryers

There are different types of clothes dryers; the airflow dryer, the condenser dryer and the heat pump dryer. Airflow dryers are becoming less popular day by day because they have a very high energy consumption. The opposite is true for heat pump dryers; this type of dryer dries the most energy efficiently and is the most frequently sold. The condenser dryer is in between. The difference between the condenser dryer and the heat pump dryer is that the heat pump dryer works with a heat pump and a refrigerant, while the condenser dryer dries with a heating element. For this reason, the heat pump dryer uses less energy. In addition, the hot air from a condenser dryer can be harmful to your laundry. It will shorten the life of your clothes.

Condensate drain

Another way the airflow dryer differs from the condenser dryer and heat pump dryer is the condensate drain. The air dryer drains the moist air during drying through a hose to the outside. This is done through a window or a hole in the wall. With condenser dryers and heat pump dryers, most models give you the choice of drainage through the water drain or a reservoir. This is a condensate tray that collects the water, and you have to empty it into the sink after each drying cycle. If you have a water drainage system in the room where you will put your dryer, we recommend you use this option. This way you don’t have to worry about the moisture of the dryer. But if you don’t have a water drain there, the condensate pan is a very nice alternative.

Filling weight

The fill weight is one of the most important features of a clothes dryer. This is because it determines whether the size of the clothes dryer fits the size of your household or family. It indicates how many kilograms of laundry will fit in the drum. You want to buy a clothes dryer with an amount of fill weight that is proportional to the number of people in your household. Otherwise, it can make drying more difficult and increase your energy costs. That’s because with a clothes dryer that’s too small, you’ll have to wash more often, which means you’ll use more energy. And if the dryer is too big, you will have to save laundry or wash it with a half-empty drum – which is a shame because you will not get the most out of the energy consumption of the program. For this reason, we always recommend that you buy a tumble dryer with at least as much fill weight as your washing machine. That way, you can be sure that all your wet laundry fits in the dryer. Are you buying a new washer dryer and washing machine? Then use the overview below as an indication:

  1. A household of 1 or 2 people should buy a dryer with a 6 kg or 7 kg fill weight. A 6kg fill weight is not common for dryers, but a 7kg fill weight is.
  2. A family of 3 or 4 people will need a dryer with 8 kg fill weight. Most dryers have a fill weight of 8 kg.
  3. A family of 5 or more needs a dryer with 9 kg fill weight or more.
Energy rating
If you are looking for an energy-efficient dryer, you should look at the energy label. This indicates how efficiently the appliance dries. The type of dryer determines to a large extent how energy efficient it is. An air dryer has a high energy consumption, a condenser dryer slightly less and the heat pump dryer is the most energy efficient. Energy-efficient heat pump dryers are expensive to buy, but because they are so economical in drying, you save a lot on your energy costs. Therefore, a heat pump dryer in energy class A+++ is often the most energy-efficient option. With an A+++ heat pump dryer, you can save up to 888 euros in energy costs compared to a condenser dryer with energy class B.
Ease of use

A modern clothes dryer, like a new washing machine, offers all sorts of technology to make washing and drying as easy as possible for you. This includes options such as a self-cleaning condenser, lint filter, control via an app, delayed start and an illuminated drum. Do you think you and your household would benefit from such features? Then choose a dryer that features this technology.

Noise level

The noise level of a clothes dryer indicates in decibels (dB) how much noise the appliance produces while drying. The noise level of most clothes dryers is nowhere near the noise level of the average washing machine. But if you plan to turn on the dryer at night, for example, it can still be nice to have a quiet clothes dryer in your home. Tumble dryers are divided into 3 categories when it comes to noise level: loud, normal and quiet. A clothes dryer is given noise level “quiet” if it produces less than 65 dB. Most clothes dryers produce between 64 dB and 66 dB, but there are also several models that produce 63 dB or less.

Drying Programs

Dryers have different programs for different types of laundry. For example, there are special programs for wool, shirts, silk, bedding and towels. These programs ensure that your laundry is dried to perfection and your clothes remain beautiful for longer. Almost all modern dryers also have an eco-program, to further reduce energy costs. There are also several dryers with an ‘extra dry’ program.

Build quality

The build quality of a dryer says something about its sturdiness and expected lifespan. Looking at the build quality, all dryers are divided into basic class, middle class and top class. If the build quality is not mentioned with a dryer, the brand and the 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. These brands are generally a bit more expensive, and therefore score less well in the “price-quality ratio” category according to research by the Consumers’ Association. Brands that score better in this category are Beko, Indesit and Zanussi.
