Disappointed! Not really sure if i'm using it properly as the instructions are so bad.
I'm really struggling with this dryer! My past machine was a cheapo vented dryer and I upgraded to the heat pump dryer with the impression that they were a better machine. I'm not sure if it is this brand that is causing me problems or it is just the way heat pump dryers are (having never owned one before), but so far no good!
It takes a really long time to dry clothes. My vented dryer use to take a bit over an hour to dry a load, this one is close to 4 hours for the same load! I've tried all the cycles and generally everything comes out fe...eling damp and I have to hang it out to finish drying. When the dryer is running for so long i'm not sure if you are actually saving that much energy compared to the vented or condenser dryers? Energy rating was one of the main reasons I purchased this machine. My other issue with the dryer is that the instruction manual is terrible. It doesn't tell you much at all. The dryer came with a hose to drain the water out, but I've searched everywhere and can't work out how to install it (no mention of a hose in the instructions) If anyone knows this please let me know! Sometimes the dryer turns off and beeps after just 10 minutes and I can't get it going again. There's a icon flashing on the screen that I assume is trying to tell me something is wrong, but the instruction manual doesn't have a description for that particular symbol so I have no idea what it means. Also the manual says to clean the heat condenser every 2 months and wipe the moisture sensors when clothes aren't drying properly but doesn't say any more than that, so I have no idea how to find these things let alone clean them.. Good things about this dryer...I like that it has a light inside. Honestly that's about it for me so far! I've emailed Teka asking for some better instructions, but if I don't have any luck i'm going to seriously consider returning it and going back to the vented dryers.
Cool laundry but very slow drying
Replaced an electrolux standard model with this heat pump model, may be cheaper to run but takes so long for the clothes to dry, not really happy, would not purchase again. I would question if it actually is cheaper to run as it runs for so much longer than the conventional one. No steamy laundry so that's a plus, maybe I'll just vent a normal one next time.
