Fantastic Dryer - Does the job
Bought it about a month ago and so far so good. Setup was easy, took one person, about 20mins in total (~1 hour including first test dry).
Usage is as simple as just following the instructions in the manual. Common logic applies. Don't stuff it to the brim, only dry one or two bulky items at a time, keep towels and clothes separate, be patient, and it works a charm. All our items have always come out super dry so far. I've read some reviews on the old 8kg one which said otherwise. So maybe the technology has improved, who knows, but this one ...does what you expect - it dries things, and well. Other comments: - The dial is very satisfying to turn to select an option - Simple, easy to use - Relatively low noise. Ours is in the garage so not noticeable. - Water chamber is a bit small, draining is a bit awkward, and it could be susceptible to mould in the long run. So we ended up just routing to a bucket and throwing it on the garden every now and then. - It has a light on the inside. Nice touch, very useful. - Rack drying is an awesome feature.

The dryer that doesn't dry.
This dryer is great in theory but poor in practice. I was attracted to this mainly for the energy efficiency and the fact that it doesn't pump hot/damp air into my home. It does do both of these things well, unfortunately it is terrible at actually drying anything. It twists clothing like none of my other dryers ever have and sheets are even worse. Sheets become so tangled that it is actually a struggle to untangle them. I have tried to dry sheets with full loads, medium loads and loads with a single sheet. There has not been one occasion where...the sheets have been dried or even close to. For such an expensive product I would expect it to at least get the basics right. After owning this for a month now I am noticing some of my clothes are getting misshapen from the stretching and twisting. If it was possible to return this for even half my money back, I would.

Great Clothes dryer
Dries every time, heaps of features, love the large LCD screen, Drying rack,
I had never owned a dryer before and did so much research before buying which I think has really helped as I know what i wanted and what was best for energy as well.

Questions & Answers
Hello, do you sell a wall mounting bracket for the DH9060 Heat Pump Dryer?
Since most of comments are relating to sheets not drying, I want to know if extra dry function helps in getting the sheets dry?
You have to use the sheets mode. When I first got it, I forgot to put it on sheets mode and they would get all twisted. But once on sheets mode they dry perfectly fine.
