Pretty good overall
So far, so good. Dries clothes without shrinkage or any apparent damage, and sheets come out without wet spots thanks to the reverse tumble feature - this brand seems to have the only heat pump driers that have this! The drier seems to adjust the timer, reducing the time if the clothes are drier or the load is smaller, which is great to see.
Also looks great and fits well on top of my LG front loader.
Any minor issues I might be having are likely as I haven't taken the time to fiddle with the settings or am not used to the way it dries. There ...are times the clothes feel very, very slightly damp, but I'm thinking I might need to adjust the water hardness. I'd also like to have more control in the sense of having a program that I can throw in damp clothes off the line, but I haven't set up the app yet, so I'm guessing (based on previous reviews) this might give this option. All in all, I'm pretty happy with my purchase and would recommend it.

Wifi is a bonus. Reverse tumble is nice
Bought this to replace and 7 years old expensive dryer which gave us heaps of issue.
I read reviews before buying this from othet sources stating that the app for wifi was beep beep. Upon using it, I realize it does needs lots of background update for every single new function you use. So the starting is very tedious at least with the app.
Set up wifi was fairly easy. Need to wait a little for the word AP to show up after the wifi icon comes up. Not a big issue.
If you turn off the machine from your phone. The machines wifi turn off too. ...So you need to go to the machine to turn it on again physically before your wifi can access it again. Remote function need to be turned on first from the machine too every single time you turn on the machine, if you plan to use it later.

So after much researching I went ahead and purchased through AO.
Amazing. I couldn’t be happier. I replaced a 21 year old vented Hoover workhorse that sounded like a jet engine was landing in my laundry and left trails of dust in its wake so yes everything would have beeen an improvement.
I wanted one with an extra dry function and also an override timer so I could throw stuff in for 15 minutes and this has both. My towels are dry and fluffy and not damaged. Yes if I add in in too many sheets they do come out wrinkled but that is more me be...ing impatient than the machine. Using the functions as instructed means the sheets come out fine but I don’t have time for that so that would be the only downside. I’m saying that it works for me and I have no issues. I’m still getting across the functions but the cotton, mixed, bedding and delicate work fine and no shrinkage. Yes it about 2 hours to dry but that doesn’t phase me as that’s how long my old dryer took too. Given it’s pretty quiet I throw it on and don’t give it another through until my phone reminds me and as I had to open all doors and windows this is a definite upgrade. The timer functions means I can throw in damp items for about 30 minutes and it works a treat. The water is reused and the filter is super easy to clean. The measurements are a bit off and AO told us it wouldn’t fit on my current AEG washer but it does easily and no issue with stability etc. I’m so happy with this and hope to still be in a few years time.

Can't live without it
I have to dry everything for about 8 months of the year as I live bordering a rainforest. I've had the machine for about a year now and I absolutely love everything about it. I've tried all settings and everything comes out perfectly dry to my chosen settings. The cupboard dry feature is excellent and super handy to get the clothes out and put them away with very little wrinkles. I haven't quite figured out the drying rack yet, tried once and failed and haven't needed to try it again. It's great drying wool, no issues at all. The filter is amaz...ing. It catches everything, even sand from kids pockets. It's super easy to use. I love that I can take out the water waste and reuse it to water the plants. The time delay is super handy to dry at off peak. I find it really quiet to all other dryers I've previously used. It's a big machine and make sure to measure your laundry area prior to purchasing to ensure it fits.

Resolved all concerns about heat pump dryers
I did months of research on heat pump dryers before finally buying one - was very nervous about the numerous reviews on leaving clothes damp, etc, but with the way our laundry room is, heat pump was simply the best option for us. Waited till EOFY sales, got it at a great price (had Harvey Norman price match Appliances Online).
After all of that stress, I cannot believe how excellent this dryer is.
It has really good reverse tumble (goes for long enough to loosen any balled laundry), and the sensors seem to work perfectly - the loads are defini...

Look no further, this is the dryer you want with reverse tumble
So I waited a bit over two months before writing this review even though I wanted to do this on day one, I just wanted to make sure there were no quirks. For context I have used a clothes dryer to dry everything that I wash for years so it's very important to me my dryer does a good job and it's as economical as possible.
I need a reverse tumble action, particularly for bedding, so the Electrolux range of dryers caught my eye being one of the few makers that have a reverse tumble action. This feature actually make the machines slightly less ef...ficient and that's why most makers avoid including it- at the expense of your wet twisted sheets and duvet covers. The Electrolux EDH903BEWA clothes dryer did not disappoint and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this machine to everyone. I live in a hot climate so I no longer need to be worried when I get home that what I put in is going to be twisted, smell terrible and need to be rewashed, dried, untwisted and dried again. This machine has a reverse tumble action which keeps things from tangling to ensure everything you put in will be dry at the end of the cycle. I have used the added basket to dry wet shoes, used the bedding cycle for additional reverse tumble action, and a few of the standard cycles- all with great success. The sensors must work well because my stuff comes out perfect and not over or under dry. It has an added drain kit which is also handy so you don't have to worry about condensation or emptying a water reservoir, if you use it. The double air filter is excellent at collecting all the lint and the condenser/evaporator is really easy to access which is essential for cleaning- this is far better than sealed 'self cleaning' systems which are in other dryers, like from Bosch, as they're difficult to maintain long term. Just a couple of tips- make sure you set your water hardness like the instructions say and your dryer needs to be at least about half full with bedding for a load, if it's too empty the items tend to fall onto themselves and twist. If it's more full the items tend to tumble over one and other rather than into itself. I have had a twisted fitted sheet once in over two months and that's when I figured out it was probably related to being under-loaded.
Questions & Answers
I've looked at this model at Good Guys. Reverse action sounds great, so no balling of sheets. However, you can't pull out the heat exchanger to wash it and there's no extra final filter to protect the exchanger from lint that passes the main filters. How does that work please? I'm not sure if this is better or worse than other machines that either have another very fine filter or have "self cleaning" condensers. No one seems to mention this as a problem. Thanks for any feedback from users. Otherwise I'm on the brink of buying based on such positive reviews.
I have never pulled out parts of any dryer to wash and is not a technical person. However, regarding another fine filter. I am not sure of you have seen the filter when you are in good guys. As you take out the filter and open it up, attached in the middle is another layer with finer filter. Between my washes I have noticed that the layer does indeed catches the very fine lint. I am not aware of how it translate to protecting the exchanger, but hope this little info helps if at all.
Hi can you please tell me the noise level when drying
