Poor quality product

Purchased in July 2022 from Aldi. Stopped working for unknown reason. Informed residentiagroup.com about the fault. Waiting for someone to come and repair the product. It’s nearly 3 weeks now. Show details

Such a disappointing appliance

My mum bought this appliance for my husband and I as a 10 year anniversary gift, in August of 2022. She was visiting us in Melbourne from Cape Town, South Africa and no longer has the receipt. My item has lasted 15 months and now it will not dry my clothes. It spins. Water tank is empty. Though that is no surprise as my clothes are still sopping wet even after 5 hours of run time. A real waste of energy too. I’ve maintained it well and have always kept it clean but where does this leave me? Unable to provide proof of purchase and now sitting with a household of 6 with no way to dry our clothes in a timely manner. Show details

Dryer belt

We purchased our dryer last year and the belt has snapped! We were wondering if it is covered by warranty and if and when we can get a new one? Show details

Drum belt almost snapped after 11mths of running perfectly

Noticed the drum had stopped turning and then made a loud whining sound. Switched off and pulled it apart and found the belt is almost snapped in half. For 600 I expected it to last a bit longer. Show details

Why would you even consider any other brand

I must admit, I was very reluctant buying this dryer. I checked a lot if different outlets for the best product on offer and could not actually find anything available for a long time. My family member decided to gift it to me. Initially, I was not expecting much considering the price . I was very pleasantly surprised after first use.
Using the dryer for all kinds of fabrics and almost all the functions I am amazed with the value for money. Definitely, can recommend with full confidence to everyone. Look no further. Show details ·  1

Was really good when working

First few months it was great and happy how it performed compared to our old dryer. Then same problem as everyone else is getting started showing up. Initially, cleaning the lint collector then restarting the program works. Now it just won't work 4 out of 5 times. Clearly something is broken. Was able to contact support and told me they will send an email with ticket number and someone will contact me in 24-48 hours. No email came and 72 hours later, still no call. Tried calling their support hotline and can't connect anymore. Can I still return this? Iyem was purchased July/2021. Show details

Weapon of ear destruction

Our neighbour has one, running it sometimes hours a day. The distance is few metres from our bedroom, they leave the laundry door open to our way, I assume on purpose... Perfect weapon easily cause misophonia, I do understand why these nuisances ends up in a violent way. Buy one if you want to start a war of noise. Show details

good for a few months

Worked perfect for about 4 months then would not drain any water out. Had a load on for a good 10 hours and were still wet.
Also Tempo like to stuff people around.They Organised someone to come look at it and then cancelled the job without telling me. Also took a few goes to get a refund, they kept telling me they had refunded the money but they finally realised they had wrong numbers for bank account in which I emailed the bank numbers so how they put down the wrong bank numbers I have no idea! Show details

Questions & Answers

Daniel P
Daniel P · Clothes Dryer

I have a Stirling STR-HPD80W purchased July 2021 which is having issues with no water condensing out of the clothes into the condensation tray. The dryer gets hot and spins fine, all filters are clean. Yet it does not seem to be extracting water at all. I can confirm it is not the water pump as I have tested this by pouring water into the bottom reservoir manually, after introducing water manually it pumps it back to the condensate collection tray. When opening the dryer door the clothes are still wet.

It seems to be condenser related as the clothes remain wet no matter how long they remain in that dryer but I can't be sure, is there any chance spare circuit boards are available for this dryer in event of a bad PCB?

This is no good. You should still have a few month warranty left.

Product purchase date: 17/07/22

My cloth dryer is not working.
Informed Residential group under the warranty on 04/12/23.

Case number: 372359

After 5 and half weeks of waiting technician came only today. But still he did not have the parts to fix the unit.

Now I have to wait until parts to arrive.

Is this how you provide service to your customers?

How long do you expect me to wait?

W are you better make it refund?
