Very Disappointed - Cooks clothes - but now happy with customer service.
I purchased this vented dryer from a well known online retailer on the 3/1/2021 which was delivered on the 5th Jan 2021. On the very first modest load it cooked the clothes. On reading other reviews I see that other people have had similar problems with the "clothes dried sensor". The filter canister is also an issue and not very efficient as it lets fluff escape . I contacted the retailer immediately and I'm still waiting for a technician to turn up. Meanwhile I can't use it. Very very disappointed.
UPDATE - I finally got through to customer ...service. They asked me what I wanted so I said that I wanted to return the dryer and get a refund. They were very pleasant and helpful. It was picked up withing 48 hours and my refund just came through today. It's a shame about the dryer but the customer service excellent and I am happy with the result. Chris.

Ruins most clothes
Does anyone else have an issue with clothes getting stuck in the rim of the door? This dryer has ruined so many clothes. It chews everything - collars of school/business shirts, anything with a drawstring. We literally have it yank the clothes out of it, and they’re covered in grease and ripped. It’s driving me nuts.

Huge condensation & fluff problem
Can't say I am happy with this dryer. There is a major problem with condensation, it drips down the walls, ceiling & floors are wet. Beside the condensation, there is a fine layer of fluff everywhere in the room every time it gets used. Pay the extra for a better brand. I regret not returning it within 30 days to the vendor to exchange.

Massive condensation issue
We have had our esatto drier for few months and the condensation is a big problem. Our window is fully open and still so much condensation.tou can see the drops running down the walls, floor gets slippery.we don’t put any paper or cardboard products in the laundry cause the get soaked.big concern for us. Should of stuck to a know brand.

I bought this condenser dryer because of the price and reviews and absolutely love the condenser dryer. It works so well and I can’t believe the amount of water collected each time I use it.
Would recommend it highly

Caused a fire that almost burnt my house down
I had this dryer for 2.5 years before it caused a fire. As other reviews have mentioned, the lint filter is not fine enough, it allows lint into parts of the dryer where it can catch fire. I cleaned the filter before every use, but this did not prevent the fire.
Well, it did catch fire, by the time I realised it was on fire the flames were licking the wall. I was minutes away from losing my house.
Appliances Online don't even respond to my emails requesting comment or a refund.
These dryers are cheap, but may cost you your life.

I dry al types of clothing, towels sheets etc. The dryer is great and clothes come out wrinkle free. Only one downside it is heavy on electricity. But no condensation in laundry or house is a big bonus. I would highly recommend this product.

I purchased my Essato 7kg after my old dryer died. Unfortunately it tangles sheets and quilt covers so they don't dry evenly and at times does not automatically stop when the clothes are dry. The clothes have been so hot, once I have realised it is still on, that that are to hot to touch. Very disappointed

Won’t last long
I am on my third replacement from appliances online. It might be a faulty batch maybe, but the lint filter does not fit well so a lot of lint and dust is getting past the filter and getting sucked into the machine. I don’t have a clothes line and being a family of 5 I rely on the dryer a lot and with this fault this machine won’t last very long. The condenser feature is good though- there’s much less humidity compared to a vented dryer.

I cannot fault this dryer. I have had it for almost four years and it has never let me down, dries clothes and sheets perfectly. Great for delicates, and clothes come out crease free every time
Essato is a brand I purchased though (appliances online).
Delivery 7/8/18 at $415. So far I have had this for over a year and is working very well.
Normally I would choose a well known brand but since my last washing machine was Simpson and lasted only 6 years. Not worth paying more if it will break down so quickly.

perfect for softening towels
towels sheets and damp washing
I find the controls very easy to work with the different settings
great for delicates and great for towels and thicker clothing

Excellent all round!
I purchased this dryer two months ago and it has been used quite a bit this winter. It worked out of the box with little set up beyond a read of the instruction book. It is fairly quiet and dries my clothes well. On the few occasions where it is not quite dry enough I put it on extra, but usually the automatic setting does well for almost everything. I bought the extra 3 year warranty and asked for the name of my local repair man as I live in regional NSW. This was provided promptly by the people who handle the servicing for Esatto. The m...achine has been great, no condensation on this very cold winter has been a boon and the machine I hope is saving me money with it's six star rating. In addition it was half the price of the Bosch model (although the Bosch was 9 kg) 7 g is a good size and exactly matches my washing machine. Time will tell if it is good in the long run, but it has certainly started off well drying my clothes gently with no tangles to my satisfaction. Emptying the water and cleaning filters is not a chore. Overall a good experience and I would recommend.

amazing product for the price
Works well and is not as expensive as the other dryers. Extremely happy with the product. Has a 2-year warranty. It was delivered from appliance online. I use it to dry everything on the auto mode and it works . Is extremely simple to use

Amazing value given the price
Purchased the Esatto from appliances Online as my old dryer died suddenly.
Thought it would be terrible at drying but alas not it's actually a heap better than the model I had which was double the price.
Lots of different settings and fairly quiet this is a great buy.

It tangles my clothes & they don’t dry right through
I have to use a clothes dryer just about daily, due to allergies & hypersensitivity to so many different things. So when my old clothes dryer sadly broke down after 12 years, I purchased the Esatto 7kg Clothes dryer in hope of the same drying experience I previously had. But NO, this clothes dryer, I find tangles my clothes into a ball & they don’t dry in the middle where they’ve become intertwined. I’ve never had this problem before & I’m not sure what’s causing this clothes dryer to do this, I have the same clothes & towels, they just don’t seem to dry in this esatto clothes dryer.
Basic dryer that does the job
Bought this after our Simpson dryer died after a long, malingering, painful screaming death. So far so good. Dries clothes well and the fact it switches itself off when clothes are dry is a big bonus in saving electricity. It seems to be quieter than our previous dryer. The price was great for a 7kg so I consider it excellent value.
Entry level products can be great, this is one!
Value for money right here. Even better when the whole transaction is via Appliances Online, I ordered at 8pm via the phone and it was delivered PM the next day and they took my old one away - wow.
Easy to unpack, reasonable easy to install via the wall mount bracket. The included stick-on template for drilling the mounting holes in the wall is a fantastic idea.
The instructions are clear.
It dries the clothes.
It has a simple user interface (buttons), and is quite in operation compared to my old Simpson. I do agree with others ...
Questions & Answers
Does anyone else have issues with the lint filter? I am on to my third replacement machine since the lint filter does not sit tight so a lot of lint is getting past and sucked into the dryer.

Can i put my 7kg dryer on top of my 6kg washer both esatto brand?
I have mine on top of my 8kg system so I don't see what the issue would be.
Hi Terri, Yes this will be fine. There are a number of rubber dryer stacking mats available on the market which we recommend placing in between to assist with vibration and protection. Thanks.
