ALDI got this wrong

I have Bought a lot of things from ALDI thinking they are thoroughly checked and meet the standards, but this cloths dryer has proved me wrong. After using the machine for couple of years the door has broken down and took really long get it replaced. When you buy white goods you expect to last long but again it didn't. Moved house and it will not turn on, it will trip the house fuse. Finally got read of it by council clean up. ALDI should go to a better supplier and test this products before selling. Disappointed!!!  Show details

I purchased the game Stirling (Aldi) 6.5 clothes dryer early last year in an Aldi off Woodville road it is just amazing it’s perfect it dryers my clothing within minutes and I don’t have to worry about going to my backyard to hang my washing I love it and I love the warranty and the options on warranty we should see more electrical equipment in Aldi and other big outlets.

Still working!

I thought this wouldn't last as long as it has so far. Its one of those cases where as soon as you unpack it you go "oh". Its a bit on the cheap and crumby side of things but amazingly is has been completely reliable and I even used it this morning. Not the biggest capacity, not the best quality but cheap!

Just ok

I'm not sure I would recommend this machine unless you were in desperate need for one and on limited funds. Ours lasted us a little under three years which for the price is not bad. We did have to claim a repair about a year in and it took so long to complete that we were not able to use the dryer at all for a couple of months. We were never able to use the highest heat setting as it would make the dryer overheat and shut down and the lint filter is at the back of the machine and its not easy to get off or empty. All in all it was just ok and I wouldn't buy another one.

Cheap Aldi dryer - does the job

This is n about to win any design awards! Its a very basic and cheaply made dryer from Aldis weekend special buys over two years a go. It's a bit crappy in sme ways (lint filter falls out due to being super cheap plastic) but its still working and has kept out clothes dry for two winters. Would I buy the same one again? Maybe, so long as I had realistic expectations regarding its very cheap price point. Its ok, not wonderful

Very basic model

We got this at one of those special buys at Aldi. It works but its just about the cheapest dryer available. Its pretty small and if you do a big load, it is often necessary to split the string in two. It's a bit on the plasticky side and probably won't last all that long but it came with a three year guarantee, so I guess I am OK for for. It works but I doubt I would get the same one again.

Good and bad - it works!

I am in two minds about this. yes, its has been good to be able to dry our clothes with but the build quality leaves plenty to be desired, then again, its still under warranty (3 years) so I am covered. This dryer is flimsy and light weight with some parts made from cheap plastic. The lint filter is just silly, it doesnt stay in place. It's also very large and can take a whole load right out of the washer so that good. It has both good and bad points and I suppose you get what you pay for at the end of the day.

A necessity in the southern states

There is no living without a dryer in Victoria and so we were very pleased to see these on special buy at Aldi just when we needed one. It is a larger size dryer with very simple controls. It feels a bit flimsy here and there but build quality is mostly OK and Aldi gives a long guarantee. It works well but can take quite a long time sometimes.

Doesn't dry towels Or sheets

It has never dryed towels or sheets well. Not bad for small items, but the reason I purchased a big dryer was for sheets and towels. It is now just over 3 years old (by 20 days) and have noticed it is not heating as well as it used to. Will put in a warranty claim, hopefully aldi still cover it.

Couldn't live in winter without it

Life in Victoria is hard enough in winter but without a dryer, forget it - it would be impossible! This is not the worlds flashest dryer but it does the job and always works. It is cheaply made with lost of plastic parts and is reasonably small. It has simple controls but it always starts and came with a decent guarantee from Aldi and was cheap!

Large Capacity Works Well

This turned out to be a good machine but I had my doubts about it at first. It is very light for its size and I wasn't sure about buying white goods from Aldi. They have a three year guarantee so thats what influenced to to go ahead. It has worked out well. It does do its job well and can take a lot of washing in one go. It has touch controls which are very easy to use. The lint filter isnt the greatest design but over all its worth the price,

I have been given this dryer but need a wall bracket. The bunnings one is too short and another generic doesn't allow for the duct . A spares website says the part is no longer available
