Overall drying time Subscribe
Dryness of clothes For dryers tested after 2012. This assessment considers what state your clothes are left in at the end of the drying cycle. Some dryers may leave clothes damp and in need of more drying. Alternatively, garments could be over-dried, meaning the dryer has been drying for longer than it had to, which is inconvenient for you and pushes up energy costs. It also increases the risk of laundry being damaged, particularly clothes made from synthetic fabrics. Subscribe
Evenness A poor score indicates that some items, typically jeans, pillowcases and sheets, were left damper than other items. Subscribe
Condensation unit efficiency Applies to condenser dryers only. We measured how much water from the clothes the tumble dryers collected. Subscribe
Creasing How much ironing was needed on men's shirts dried using the synthetics program. Subscribe
Noise The lowest scorers were fairly loud – the motor was audible, as was the movement of air and the drum, and the noise of falling linen was quite forceful. Subscribe
Brand reliability How reliable this brand of tumble dryer is. Subscribe
Ease of use
Ease of use Includes the ease of using and programing the dryer, loading the drum, and cleaning the lint filter and condenser unit. Subscribe
Energy use
Energy use This rating allows you to quickly compare how energy efficient this model is versus other tumble dryers we've tested. It's based on the cost per equivalent load, not the maximum amount the machine can dry. Subscribe
