Dryer without drainage hose
Want to buy a new clothes dryer, but one without a hose? A heat pump dryer with a tank is the right dryer for you! This is because dryers with a condensate tray do not need to be connected to the water drainage system and there is also no need to route a drainage hose to the outside.

Dryer without a drainage hose, is that possible
Residual water is collected in a condensate tray
Dryers are designed to extract residual water from your laundry after it comes out of the washing machine. This releases a moist, warm air that, of course, has to go somewhere. Often, the moisture is removed with a hose, either to the water drain or outside, but there is another way. The following points show the ways in which dryers get rid of moisture.
- With hose through the water drain: with the help of a drain hose, the damp air is led to the drain. However, this is only possible if you have a water drain in the room of the dryer.
- With hose to the outside: the moisture is removed with a drain hose to the outside. For this, it is important that you have a window near your dryer. If you don’t have a window in your laundry room, you can put a special hole in the wall for this.
- Collecting in a reservoir: the moisture is drained into a reservoir, also called a ‘condensation tank’. If you choose a dryer with a condensate drip tray, you will not need a drain, window or hole in the wall. Just be aware that you will need to empty this container regularly, about every drying cycle.

Types of dryers
And are different types of clothes dryers, not all types of clothes dryers are available with a condensate tray. Below you can read exactly what the difference between different clothes dryers is.
Heat pump dryer
The majority of clothes dryers sold today are heat pump dryers. This is because they have a longer life and dry a lot more economically than the alternatives by using a very low drying temperature. This keeps your energy bills low, is better for the environment and also ensures that your clothes last longer. Almost every heat pump dryer has energy class A+, A++ or A+++. Most are very energy efficient and have energy label A+++. Almost all heat pump dryers have a reservoir, but pay specific attention to this to be sure!
The condenser dryer uses a high temperature when it dries your clothes and is therefore less energy efficient. When using a condenser dryer, your laundry will wear out a little faster and your energy bill will be a little higher. Most condenser dryers have energy class B. Almost every condenser dryer has a water tank that needs to be emptied after every drying cycle, but be sure to check this when you buy.
The vented dryer has the highest energy consumption per cycle and is the least efficient. They also only have a hose that leads outside, so they do not have a condensation pan. Because the energy consumption per cycle is so high, but also because vented dryers do not have a water container, we do not recommend this type of dryer.
The heat pump dryer and condenser dryer are clothes dryers without a hose. Both types, in most cases, have a condensate tray that needs to be emptied once in a while. Of these two types, the heat pump dryer is the most economical. It uses a lower temperature when drying, so it consumes less energy and your laundry will last longer.
Tip: If you choose a dryer with a self-cleaning condenser, you do not have to clean the condenser yourself. This keeps the dryer energy efficient. Only heat pump dryers have a self-cleaning condenser.
