Absolute value for money, reliable dryer
Since moving to Victoria from Queensland I have used this dryer on a daily basis. I load it with towels, jeans, sheets and it dries all of these pieces quickly and quietly. Although the dryer cycle is very quiet I do find the beeping when a load finishes a little annoying, repetitive and loud. Filter is easy to clean. Settings easy to navigate.

Fabulous dryer for the price
I bought this dryer last year after my previous one died. I looked at condenser dryers, heat pump ones, digital displays and decided on this model.
Its a whisper quiet machine, which dries efficiently, and is simple to use.
There are a few cycles to choose from, I've used them all and find the results to be excellent on all cycles.
I use the timer settings usually, and check on it intermittently, as I'm home most of the time.
I've always taken clothes out that are perfectly dry and not tangled up.

Cheap and does the job
Pretty quiet for a cheaper clothes dryer. Clothes always come out dry on the auto setting wich for a full load takes less than a hour. I definetly would recommend.

Simple well build Dryer
Had this dryer for close to 7 months now and it hasn't missed a beat, it replaced a previous Simpson dryer that was 20 years old, so simple to use, just put it on cotton's cupboard and the dryer does the rest, And it matches so nicely with my brand new Simpson top load washing machine, very happy Simpson customer.

Sensor not working properly
The sensor for the dryer is not working properly. Even after the dryer running for around 3 hours with Cotton Extra dry mode and just half loaded with clothes, the clothes are not drying up properly and remain partly wet.

Value for money
I normally put cotton clothes. Good quality dryer with a good price tag. Fantastic. It also work for delicate clothes. I strongly recommend it to anyone. The dry time is quick as well

Sensor doesn’t work!!
Purchased and straight away the sensor did not work. Have tried everything ex cleaning the lint, not overloading etc but still leaves the clothes wet. Inconvenient as I now have to take off wall, fit in car, drive across town and be left with no dryer while this gets sorted. Not good enough for a brand new dryer. Shouldn’t advertise as a sensor dryer if it doesn’t perform.
