Condenser fail

To be fair I bought this as part of a new years sale package where it came with a washing machine. I read sale and stopped at dryer, I so wish I had read that online ad properly. I absolutely do not recommend this product. The only way it dries any of my clothes is when its set to the highest setting, god forbid I put towels or bedding's in there because it does Sweet FA. I just get a big wet round ball of wet linens. So when it rains and I need my bedding's dried, I save myself the trouble & I take my stuff to the nearby laundromat

Wish I had never bought this dryer

Clothes straight from the washer will dry but only on the hottest setting.
I put one sheet at a time to try to get the sheets to stop bunching and going into a wet football shape. The sheet still bunched up and does not dry even with the addition of dryer balls and three tennis balls . Only saving grace is that the windows don’t mist up. Overly expensive dryer with poor performance.
We will not buy Haier brand ever again.

Lemon

Stops prematurely after 10-15 mins, plays a tune and says END but clothes are wet and slightly warm. Show details

The worst!

This dryer .. just does not dry! It uses a ridiculous amount of power and ties your clothes, sheets or towels in a wet knot. The absolute worst.
Save your money and invest in a clothes horse Show details

Hate it!!

Clothes take forever to dry, can be u to 6 hours or more sometimes. I let the sales woman talk me into this as she has one and it's the best ever. Hated it from day, give me back my dryer the fogs up the laundry please, at least it dried. Had for under 18 months and now when it tries to spin it makes a really little ud noise and I can't use it. Would never buy one of these dryers again Show details

Have had the dryer for 1 week sheets don’t dry just roll up into a ball have to keep stopping the machine to untangle them. Have spoke to Haier they are not interested they just want your money also clothes don’t come out dry on auto.

Not a great dryer

Bought my condenser dryer May last year. Hasn't been great from the start but thought I was using the wrong drying cycle. Been very hit or miss when it comes to the cycle completing and actually drying the clothes. Now not drying at all, cycle keeps ending prematurely and filter light flashes even though filter and condenser are perfectly clean. I have a technician booked to come look at it, wish I had read these reviews before buying! Show details

Love it

Loves the way it makes your clothes look fresh and look new but annoying how it sometimes won't do a cycle for longer the 5 mins and keeps flashing filter even tho it's clean Show details

Purchasers, I feel your frustration!

I don't even own one, but am staying somewhere where the holidaying owners do. What torture this piece of rubbish is, for ALL the shared aforesaid reasons. I will avoid this brand in future, luckily not having ever spent a cent on one.

Sheets that ball up and couldn't possibly dry as a mass. Stop-starting. Machine stops after 2 minutes. Nothing has ever been removed dry.

Useless

Purchased approximately 2 years ago for $800. Lucky I extended the warranty. Worked ok for first 3 months. Persisted with it, but it bunched up the sheets, took longer than it was programmed to dry, filter light kept coming on, making an awful grinding of gears noise. We are on our second dryer and it is just as bad, already had a technician come and repair, now it’s leaking water, and the grinding of the gears noise is back. Show details

Rubbish!!!! Don't bother buying

I've had this dryer for 4 months, from day 1 it's never worked properly. Constantly flashing filter, saying my clothes are dry but are still wet!!!! Cannot dry clothes at all. Haier are wanting to 'fix it' when clearly it's just a dryer that doesn't work. Haier are selling dodgy products!!! Show details

A garbage clothes dryer. Filter light constantly flashing and simply does not dry clothes. Don’t buy one

This “dryer” has never dried clothes properly from day one. Now it will only run for about five minutes and then stop with a flashing filter light. This dryer has only been used for about 20 cycles. I will be throwing it away and buying a different brand. Show details

Dryer that just won't dry!

I try to use to air clothes still damp from the line. Turn on for 1 min then it stops. Sometimes it starts again for 1min then stops. The filter light flashes indicating it needs emptying, even though it's clean. This can continue for hours and no change to the clothes - still damp. If I'm trying to dry a wet load? - forget it. It just won't happen no matter what setting you try. Terrible machine. I DO NOT recommend. Show details

A dryer that doesn't dry!

I'd give it less stars, but the least I could have was one. Had this dryer for a little over a year now and will say that it is completely useless waste of money and energy! It does not get anything dry, Sheets roll up into a solid wet ball repeatedly and take 4-5 cycles to get 80 percent dry, put clothes straight in from the washing machine and 2 minutes later it's stopped and tells me it's done. This does not dry a thing and have upgraded to my parents 30 odd year old fisher and paykel dryer. WTH Haier...?
My recommendation is to purchase a clothes airer instead. Show details

What do reviewers think of the Haier HDC80E1?

Reviews of the Haier HDC80E1 were mostly negative. Most reviewers said that the dryer didn’t dry their clothes. A number of users had the same problem where the dryer would run for a few minutes and then indicate that the cycle was finished, even though the laundry had come straight from the washing machine and was still wet. Those who managed to get it to mostly dry their clothes said that it took 4 to 5 cycles to do so.

Reviewers also said that the dryer constantly indicated that the filter needed emptying, even though it was clean. They also reported that their laundry constantly bunched up into a ball, perhaps partly due to the drum only spinning one way.

Overall, the mood of reviewers was captured concisely by one reviewer, who said that the machine was a “useless waste of money and energy”.
