This dryer is amazing and exceeded our expectations. We wanted to move away from a conventional dryer and use a more energy efficient Heat Pump Dryer. Spent much time reading negative reviews, with many reviewers claiming this dryer does not dry clothes. This is not the case, and we are wondering how these users are using this dryer. We've used it for 2 weeks and find clothes are completely dry at the end of the cycle. Have also been impressed with the feel of clothes, particularly sheets and towels which are left very soft. We also find this dryer is much quieter, and does not overheat the room, so we often let clothes dry at night. I'm so glad we chose this dryer and it's definitely worth the extra cost.
Pretty but doesn't dry
I purchased this.dryer last month to match the washing machine. This dryer replaces my 32 year old.Hoover that was still working. Unfortunately it doesn't dry completely and even putting the washing back in doesn't dry it so I find I'm stringing up or draping it over chairs. My quilt covers end up in a knotted ball that are almost impossible to untangle (buttons done up and reverse working). I have checked the manual in case it's me...but it isn't. I don't recommend this dryer, it's a waste of money.
Great energy efficiency

Purchased in July 2019 for $1,299.00.
Love it! It is quiet, does not heat the laundry up and most importantly does not need to be vented as it collects the water in a container. It has an internal light (simple feature but great to have). It is quicker than I thought and very energy efficient. Have not used the internal rack yet but it looks fantastic for shoes or delicate items. Well worth the extra $$$ to get a quality item.

Questions & Answers
Thanks Vanessa, does your bedding tangle or after a cycle do you have to pull it out untangle it and put it in for a bit more? The only reason I ask is I bought a different brand and it would spin for 5 mins then do a quarter turn back- which did nothing- and this was advertised as a reverse tumble action so I'm looking for something better.
If I do my quilt cover up before washing it then its fine. If I don't close it then things seem to end up inside it in a ball. This dryer does more than 1/4 reverse turn but its not as much reverse spin as forward spin.
So I sent Electrolux a message on their site and got no response, which is discouraging. The product information says there is a reverse tumble action- does it dry both ways, like for equal amounts of time in each direction? Can it dry sheets and doona covers without getting tangled up?
I must admit I do not know. I have just run the bedding cycle now and watched to see what happens. I can tell you that the reverse spin is very short compared to the forward spin and does sound slightly quieter. There is certainly still fan noise and air flow but it does sound slightly different. it isn't a 50/50 forward/reverse more like 90/10
