A great condenser dryer for a great price
When we moved to it new home we wanted a new dryer and washing machine with good capacity so we could do less loads.
I did a lot of research about brands and decided to try a condenser dryer to avoid the heat and moisture in the air.
Price is always important and I thought I had to drop about a grand for the appliance until I stumbled upon the Gorenje brand online. I have not heard of it before but it turn out to be an European Brand from Slovenia. I read the reviews I could from sites in Europe and decided to take the punt. I'm very ha...ppy with my decision. The appliance is very easy on the eye. Have internal lights, a myriad of settings to make sure you choose the right one for the clothes and it is quiet. I highly recommend checking these out whenever you need to buy or replace yours.
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).
