This is ok
This is very cheap compare to all other heat pump dryer out there, I bought it while on sale for $579. Just one thing is that it get messy all the lint not staying in the box even though i clean after every load

Not great for small enclosed spaces (like apartment laundries)
I purchased this because it had a much higher energy efficiency rating than my old vented dryer and because I thought I would not have to leave my small apartment laundry doors open to run.
I assumed the efficiency might lead to clothes drying properly, but it now takes about twice as long to dry a full load (full load from a 7kg washing machine). The laundry doors I still have to leave open, or I get a water dripping off the bottom of them, which means I have to install an exhaust fan now to stop the doors from getting water damage.
The set...tings on it really don't work - if you want dry clothes, you have to put it on Cotton Extra, or they will just come out damp. I have tried nearly all of the settings and clothes types. I do like my clothes very dry though, not 'cupboard dry', or 'ironing dry', but dry. The only thing this dryer may have over my old vented Simpson is the energy savings. But without being able to directly compare loads and measure the usage, I can't really comment on this.
Purchased in January 2020 at Appliances Online for $550.00.
Questions & Answers
Hello - I purchased my Essato heat pump dryer last week and have had the sensor lights for the filters and water container come on 4 times in the past 30 minutes (even when they are empty). It was on the 10 minute cool air cycle. The same problem is not happening on warmer cycles (baby care or auto). Please let me know what I need to do. Thank you!
Hey Emma, it sounds like you cleaned both filters as this has to be done each load. I'd check the manual online then I would get.onto the seller. You may need a service call. Sorry I can't add any more.
Hi, my dryer takes around 4-5 hours to dry one normal sized load of washing is this normal?
That is too a long time. Clean both filters before each use. Double spin towels and heavy wets. A normal load I would giveat least 3 hours but not 4-5. But it.may still be damp at waist bands and thick bits. I dried mostly on "jeans" setting for everything. Hope this helps.
does this dryer come with a drain tube?
It does. The instructions for the appliance shows how to connect it (default is draining into container). If I'll have time on the weekend I'll create the video on how to disconnect container tube, mount it and connect the drain tube... Tips and tricks etc. It is simple, but somehow not straight forward.
For those who are interested I filmed how to plumb the dryer (redirect the moisture draining from onboard container to the washing machine drain outlet) and best practice how to clean filters to keep in in working order for the long time: https://youtu.be/3eem7F2XMJ8
Thankyou! The dryer had a clear plastic plug on the end that the manual did not say remove and I coudlnt figure out how to put it on, your video saved me a lot of hassle! Apprieciated!
