Great Dryer! Little hard to get use to...
Good dryer, dries all type of clothes and linen well. But does take alittle to get use to. Drying clothes direct from the washing machine works fine on auto sensor mode ( cotton or mixed) but can't use auto sensor mode if you want to finish off some clothes after being on the line. For this to do 'time dry' for a minimum of 30 minutes. it took us a frustrating night to realise this. Now we figured this out we love this dryer! so convenient to have a condenser dryer no ducting!

Works as intended
100% with Mango on this one, you do have to adjust the dryness level for this dryer to be satisfactory. When you purchase brand new, you get water testing kit that you're supposed to use to setup your dryer. I didnt use mine; i just set the dryer to '0' (soft water) to get max drying level.
If your clothes come out damp, perhaps you didnt do this step. And there are actually other factors that might affect the result:
1. If your laundrys dripping wet, dont throw in the dryer
2. If crumpled, shake them loose, the idea is to get more air flow in between so it dries more, faster and you can possibly skip ironing too
3. Set the dryer accordingly
4. Dont bother with dryer balls, they dont do a thing other than making noise

Takes a little fiddling, but works very well.
Out of the box, the dryer doesn't dry clothes well - clothes came out damp.
I had to try their "2-button trick" to change the internal setting to '0' to dry properly. See page 12 8.3 of this manual: https://resource.electrolux.com.au/Public/File/?Id=36253
It looks and feels like a quality unit. A little pricey, but I got a good bargain. It takes very large loads - even 7-8kg washes.
Some things to expect from a condenser dryer:
1) You have to empty the water tank after every use. The big plus is that internal laundries with little ventilation...

Just purchased, and first impression is CHEAP.
So we will shortly see how it runs, and I will update the review, but first impressions are this is very flimsy made and cheap feel. Previously had a F&P 8060P2 which failed at around 6 years / 300 cycles when it's drum started grinding on the seals. Hoping this one will be ok, but the build is so cheap feeling, everything in it is very lightweight compared to the older F&P that I have little confidence.
The door is so easy to flex with one hand you can easily break the seals with no effore at all...
I will update after a while of using.

This device works no better than leaving damp washing on a chair. I think I'd do better leaving the washing machine on a longer spin cycle. My previous cheapo dryer did a better job albeit with the result of a damp laundry.

Excellent money's worth
I purchased the dryer for winter as we have 3 boys. We needed it for the larger drying items like linen and towels. Dries perfectly, they come out soft, not wrinkled etc. Easy to set up, use and understand the manual.

Good price easy to use looks good great dryer. Electrolux are a good brand clothes come out dry not over heated not damp. no need for ironing which I love!

Easy to use and efficient. It is quite economical. Dries clothes effectively, has a lint catcher, comes with wall mounting brackets to mount and stickers reverse so you can use either way up. Runs quietly. Has an iron dry option to help avoid creases. Has a good delicate cycle for delicate materials.

Does the job well
I've now popped it in the Garage and will probably go back to a vented dryer and lots lots more line drying. This dryer is now taking FOREVER - I am not sure why. Initially it was pretty reasonable but over time its become noiser and taking much longer/leaving clothes very damp. I've resorted to using Time Only cycles for washing thats been 95% line dried.
Original review below (BTW didnt end up getting an Electrolux washer)
I purchased this Dryer after my 4 year old Fisher and Paykel dryer died for the fourth time.

Questions & Answers
The dryer often spins fast in one direction and balls up clothes. It's meant to be reverse action. Is something wrong?
I’ve just purchased the 8kg condenser dryer
And it’s coming out damp
I’ve tried changing the settings a number of times.
What am I doing wrong?
My new dryer does not dry. I have changed the water hardness setting but it is always cool no matter what program or how long i run it - is the cooling phase light always meant to be on ?
