Worked well without much use for 3 years then packed it in
Purchased our Gorenje D754BJ 3 years ago. Worked well until a bearing packed it in (out of warranty of course). Had a friend who had recommended however shortly after he recommended his packed it in with the same problem at 4 years old.
Our dryer had not had a significant amount of use and at a price of around $700 I would expect more than 3 years. Anyway I will not be caught again by this company.
Purchased at Appliances Online for $700.00.
Reasonable until it stopped working 2 months post warranty
Bought a Gorenje condenser dryer which was fine until it stopped working 2 months post warranty period (2 year warranty).
Understand that given the cheaper price, the built of the dryer isn't the greatest, with the finicky lint door and discernable tumbling sounds.
However, in hindsight, would have been more cost effective to invest in a more solid dryer since I read that dryers are typically meant to last at least 10 years.
KEEP ON BANGING
All I wanted was a dryer I could turn on and off as I needed with a warm and hot setting. Unfortunately most dryers these days have "Sensors" which adjust your drying time and detangler which turns the machine on and off and is tumbles different ways. This means they are now noisier, take longer, are more complicated and really do a lousy job. The instructions and help line was useless and now I can not put my dryer on at night as with all the stopping and starting it is impossible to sleep through instead of a constant hum like my last old wonderful drying and they cost far too much.
Not as bad as the rest of my gorenje appliances
I liked the colours so I bought a few gorenje appliances when I moved house. This is the best of them, but it's still pretty bad. It's made of soft plastic that scratches / scuffs very easily, has no sensor function, and puts out the most alarming amount of water when it dries. You need to run the hose into a drain outlet, so if your laundry only has the one outlet for your washing machine (as every laundry I've ever owned has), you'll be in trouble. We had to put the hose into a bucket, which constantly gets tipped over. Fun times.

Questions & Answers
Is it quiet? Can you set it for 15 minutes? How often does it start and stop? Where does the water go? Is their an internal container? How do you empty it?
It's not overly loud but certainly not silent. You can't set a timer but there are a lot of different settings, some short and some long. When I dry business shirts it only takes about 15-20 minutes on the shirt setting. It uses a sensor so the setting you choose might come up with a certain time that counts down but it might count down faster or slower depending on how wet the load is and how long it is taking to dry according to the sensors. Not sure what you mean by how often it starts and stops. It comes with a pipe that you can set up to feed the water into your laundry sink otherwise there is a reservoir container that needs to be emptied after each load and is very simple to do, just slide it out and tip it over the sink and the water comes out of a little pipe at the end.
It's not very loud, but I found Gorenje to be absolutely rubbish quality - the two other Gorenje appliances I got all got sent back with the dryer. The fridge and the washing machine were delivered broken / not working, and they fell apart in my hands. Dryer worked ok, but I sent it back anyway because I found the door very flimsy and the plastic very brittle.
The one I replaced it with is much louder, so the Gorenje one is fairly quiet (but by no means silent).
