Tumble Dryer Measurement Guide

Make sure your tumble dryer is the perfect fit with a little help from our handy measurement guide. We’ll give you some top tips so measuring up for that new appliance is easy.

How to measure

You’re measuring for a freestanding tumble dryer if: the machine will slot into a kitchen workspace.

Did you know? Most tumble dryers are freestanding models.

Freestanding tumble dryers

Tumble dryers are standard sizes, the only measurement that varies is the depth.

  • First, make sure you have the height, width and depth measurements of the space you’re putting your tumble dryer in.
  • Check these measurements against the tumble dryer you’ve got your eye on. You’ll find all the info in our product specifications section.
  • Remember that large drums can add extra bulk to a machine, and some control panels can stick out further than the stated depth.
  • Also, if you’re buying a vented tumble dryer, make sure you add on a few centimetres to the depth to leave room for the vent and hose.
