Absolute waste of money

Stopped working after 2 years. Mind you it took forever to dry anything prior to it dying. Waste of money. Avoid at all costs, do not waste your money on this rubbish machine Show details

Good cheap dryer - simple but effective

This was the cheapest dryer going when I bought it and its has put in three solid years. Its not about to won any beauty pageants but it does the intended job and has run without a hitch for years. It makes a big difference to have a dryer in Melbourne. Its very simple to use and was extremely cheap to buy.

Don’t buy!

Door fell off the third time I used it! Clothes rolled up into a ball so it took extra long to dry. Attempting to get it fixed under warranty. Wish me luck! I am a fan of Aldi products but this 6.5 kg Stirling brand dryer is an absolute disappointment.

Slipping belt

I find cheaper equipment is as good as the big name brands even if you have to improvise,If you find this dryer to slip in the cold weather. Always unplug from main power,remove the back plate and replace the spring you find on the belt tensioner with a slightly shorter one from the hardware store,This will pull the belt tighter and should eliminate your slipping problem,this same technique could work with other machines.Be careful not to use too short springs as this could put too much strain on the appliances.

Do not buy

worked for a year then died

would not by any capital equipment from Aldi

The unit looks brand new. We are shifting home and are throwing it out.

It was hardly used and I could not find the purchase document

Hopefully the metal can be recycled rather than land fill

Ok for a while

Purchased an aldi clothes dryer 3 years ago, its a 6 kg.

It was such a good dryer and still is but recently its started to make a louder annoying noise when its operating.

Has been more quiet in the past and has a squeaking noise. Maybe needs new bearings.

Was $179 when we needed a dryer because of all the Qld rain.

Has been great, has numerous drying heats and times, stainless steel drum, looks good. Can be floor or wall mounted and comes with the button sticker panel either way up.

Tho now we have it right way up and took the old panel sticker off to apply the new one but its bubbling and not sticking well.

Still dries the same but with the noise after 3 yrs. Have no, other complaints and very happy with it other than the noise.

Does the job

It's nothing fancy, but the price tag is reflective of that. I usually just use the 1 hour cycle. There are options to have a light air dry or more heat. It's not intelligent enough to know when the clothes are dry, so you have to just keep checking. It's good for winter when nothing dries for days or when it's raining for days on end.

Today I went Aldi to buy a clothes dryer. It was a reasonable price $269 so I brought it home set it up and as soon as I turned it on it didn't work. The machine wasn't tumbling the instructions didn't help either. I ended up returning it. And getting another one from Harvey Norman. What a long day!!

Terrible !! DO NOT purchase the Stirling Dryer. The lint filter keeps coming out and because the dryer only dries in one direction sheets end up I a big ball and don't dry. Worst purchase ever !! This is the worst dryer I have ever had and will never recommend anyone purchase this. Money wasted.

Leaking water - new 6.5 model

Only run it a few times and found it is leaking so will probably return it. Have never known a dryer to leak water before.

The controls on it make it look like a sensor dryer but it is not - the "modes" are just different run times - well featured for the price though.

Disappointing as we are usually happy with Aldi gear but it seems that dryers are not something they do well.

Hi, I have a Stirling 6.5kg dryer, it’s 2-3 years old, when I press the power button the control panel turns off.
Any solution how to fix this?

The small tab on the upper side of the door needs to be pushing a switch in the dryer. It was brocken in mine.
