No matter what kind of dryer you have, a condenser dryer has the same dimensions as a heat pump dryer, a clothes dryer and a dryer with a brushless motor. All appliances are designed to fit into the same spaces, so the size generally matches. Washing machine sizes are also taken into account, making it easier to fit them on top of or next to each other.
Wash dryer height
Nearly all wash dryers are 85 centimetres high, making it easy to save space by tucking the appliance under a sink or between cupboards. Before you put a dryer in a niche, it’s important to measure the height of the space properly to make sure it really fits. Most dryers have adjustable feet at the bottom that allow you to raise the height a few centimetres at a time.
Width of Dryer
Most dryers have a standard width of 60 centimetres. Do you want to put your washer and dryer next to each other? If so, be sure to check the direction of the door when buying a new tumble dryer to avoid both doors opening in the middle and them hitting each other.
Do you have enough room to fit your washer and dryer next to each other? If so, make sure they are always on a solid surface. This will prevent the vibrations from drying from not being absorbed properly, causing the parts inside to wear out much faster.
Depth of washer dryer
The depth varies the most out of all the sizes, ranging from 57.5 to 68 cm. If you want to place your dryer on top of the washing machine, it is important that the dryer does not stick out too far. After the washing machine is level, the dryer always comes on top. A dryer that sticks out too far, does not fit on the universal spacer and therefore will not be stable. If the difference is between 5 and 10 centimetres, there is no need to worry.
With a clothes dryer, depth is mainly determined by fill weight. The larger the fill weight of your dryer, the deeper the machine will be. You determine the fill weight based on the size of your household, the more laundry you have, the more fill weight you will need.
The depth of a dryer is always indicated including everything that sticks out. If the door of the dryer is convex and protruding, it will be included in the depth. The same goes for knobs and screens.
Keep in mind that you should always have room at the back of the dryer for all connections. Also, always put your dryer in a clean place to prevent dust and other debris from getting between the connections.
