Product Overview

A great machine from Hoover. The Hoover VHV781NC has reverse tumble action which moves clothes around in different directions. This prevents tangling and reduces creases, meaning much less ironing. There are 10 programmes to choose from in all, including sensor drying. It measures the moisture level in the drum to know when clothes are dry so you don’t have to keep checking. Of course, if you want to dry delicate items or hang-up work shirts with a little moisture left in them, there’s also the option of timed drying available. And if you want to make the most of cheaper night-time electricity, the 24 hour delay function is incredibly useful too.

    Brilliant value for money

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good, large opening door, money-saving sensor, anti-crease option, delay start timer, generous load size

    Cons:small flimsy filter

    "I strongly recommend this outstanding Hoover tumble dryer. I've been amazed at the amount of features included and it blows my previous Whirlpool machine out of the water. I had a long wish-list of features - including a left-opening door (which very few have), a digital 'time remaining' display and delay timer. This dryer ticked every box and it's worth a lot more, especially now that I've used it for a few weeks. The controls couldn't be easier. It's very quick to set, and the sensor drying is excellent. Sometimes it cuts the drying time by half. There are two slight negatives, although neither would stop me buying the machine again: Firstly, it doesn't dry mixed loads well. If you have even a small hand towel with clothes, everything ends up damp, even if I've had it on the bone-dry setting. But in fairness, Hoover do recommend not doing that anyway! Mixed clothes fabrics are fine together. Secondly, the fluff filter seems to be very small and flimsy; I can't imagine it lasting for a few years. It's not as quiet as my previous dryer but I wouldn't call it noisy by any means. Buy it!"

    not very good

    Pros:looks good

    Cons:Complicated, Expensive

    "I have always had a hoover 8kg tumble dryer, so when I needed a new one I went for the sensor one .The sensor only works if you have a full 8kg load, as do all the other settings, I have only had the dryer for 2 weeks and had the engineer out all ready. The only dry I can use is the timed one. again unless its a full load. Also it knots the washing, which I have never had with a tumble dryer before, The engineer said its a new design on the drum, so I am very disappointed with this."

    Excellent appliance

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, Quiet

    "Very happy with our new tumble dryer. Has a lot more settings than our own one, but I will probably still dry by time. Easy to use with a very good size capacity. Good value product."

    Simple to use - good value for money

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, Quiet, looks good

    Cons:inserting the vent was a problem

    "It might be simply a design fault with the machine I received, but it took me over an hour just to try and push the vent into the back of the machine. Seems the little clips on the vent are a fraction too short so the vent refused to push in and clip fully in place. I gave up in the end and used tape to hold it in place. Other than that, only having had the machine one day, it's nice and quiet, drys well, but the instructions for how to use the Timer function isn't all that clear - I've yet to work that out. Nice large 8kg drum, even takes a king-size feather duvet but needs several times on a Bone Dry setting to fully dry it. I'm very happy with this machine."

    Not very good

    Pros:Value for money

    Cons:no temperature control, too many inefficient settings

    "Our old tumble dryer was at least ten years old. It had a timer and two settings, high and low and took no time at all to dry our clothes. My hairdryer has more drying power than the new machine, it has many options but sadly 'dry my clothes quickly' isn't one of them. I wouldn't recommend this machine to anyone unless i really didn't like them."
