Aldi Stirling Dryer Still Alive!
Not bad for the price in general.
~Use the dryer with all types of clothes especially winter clothing when we use the machine often. It dries most of the clothes with the given setting.
~Different settings obviously give you different result in terms of generally mixed clothes drying.
~ It is gentle enough but not when it comes to some wool clothes and socks that it becomes smaller from its normal size when you never use dryer before. I guess, it is a matter of balancing the temperature and knowing which type of wool fabrics that go smaller tha...
Purchased in June 2016 for A$315.00.
Dripping water same as others
We purchased 'stirling tumble dryer' 2017.
We have purchased many many Aldi products since they have been in W.A , without issue,other than 'change of mind', and returned within 60 day period.
We only used the 'tumble dryer apx 20 times over 2 yrs, other than a few weeks ago, it was wet & windy, so I decided to put clothes straight from machine into dryer, prior when we had used it was from washing line to just finish drying.
I noted some water had dripped, onto my machine, but thought nothing of it, until the next week, it was literally 'dripp...
Purchased in June 2017.
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.
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!
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,
Really Good Dryer
Best value dryer available, I think. We paid only $269 but its big and roomy and can handle a full load straight out of the washer. Its got push button controls and you can mount it upside down or right way up! Its failry quick but we only use it to finish clothes mostly, so its hard to tell. It has a decent guarantee (3 years) so you are well covered if anything goes wrong.
Cheap But Works OK
This is a cheaply made dryer with plastic parts everywhere but I am still glad we have it. In Geelong it gets very hard to dry clothes around this time of year and this helps a great deal to finish them off. Its just got a timer and heat switch - thats it. Oh and you have to remember to empty the flimsy lint filter. Its cheap and it does the job
Love love love my dryer!!
Worth every dollar i spent. Easy to use, looks great! Haven't used my clothes line in so long.
Defiantly worth investing in one if you haven't already. Very easy to clean , the vent is easily accessible And has a decent amount of room inside for clothing oh an its alot quiter than my last dryer
Better Than I Thought
I had my doubts about buying an appliance like this from Aldi but its been great and it came with a three year warranty. It takes a whole load of washing, no problems and its been perfectly reliable. It's a little bit noisy sometimes but all dryers can be. Cleaning the lint filter is easy and there is no other maintenance to speak of. Its cheap, it works!
Hand me down
My mum originally bought this is has been used extensively by an active household with several tradies also using it before she gave it to me. I have always put my sheets in a washing bag and I use dryer balls so I have never gotten balled up sheets. Dry time is fast and definitely has been a valuable purchase by my mum.
Good for the price
Purchased for first house and works good but can't fill very much as it will stop and you need to arrange or take out clothing for it too keep drying. for bigger loads it takes a long time to try and sometimes multple times through the dryer. But once you work out the right amount of time to amount of clothes ratio it works fine.
Questions & Answers
How do I turn the lock function off
There has never been water in the water tub on the top, it dries the clothes good, just wandering if thats how it should be.
