How heavy is a dryer

Most clothes dryers weigh between 45 kg and 60 kg, regardless of whether they are an air-flow dryer, condenser dryer or heat pump dryer. Exactly how heavy a dryer is varies by size and model. For example, dryers with a large fill weight are often heavier than dryers with a small fill weight. The specifications of the dryer will tell you exactly how much it weighs. Dryers almost always weigh less than washing machines. For that reason – if you’re going to stack appliances – you always want to put the clothes dryer on top. This is because the clothes dryer probably can’t support the weight of the washing machine. Also, the chances of the dryer moving from its spot are very low with new clothes dryers. This is because the carbon brush free motor causes less vibration.
