How a condenser dryer works

Condenser dryers use an electric heating element that causes the air inside the drum to reach a high temperature. That heat air, along with the centrifuge – the hard spinning of the drum – removes the moisture from the laundry. Because a condenser dryer dries at a higher temperature than, say, a heat pump dryer, your laundry dries relatively quickly. In addition, condensation dryers usually have two options for removing moisture; you connect it with a drain hose to the water outlet, or you use the built-in water tank. You have to empty this after every drying session, for example in the sink.
