    Great product. A little fussy in that you need to remve the fluff ever time you use it or itll stop the next cycle part way through but it definitely helps keep it in good order. Definitely better than our last one which was well used but no where near to the standard of this.

    Candy heat pump tumble dryer

    Tumble dryer was east to instal, easy to follow instructions and has been a good product so far. Happy!

    Great dryer

    Really good dryer. Features on the dryer make it easy to remember to do the filter and empty the water. Also very quiet.

    Tumble drying novice

    Overall good product but the WiFi connection does not work as it had to be a specific internet level Overall just still learning how to use it

    Very impressed

    Really pleased with this item. I was sceptical as some reviews have said drying takes ages but if it’s on the right setting we haven’t found it to be slow at all - it had a couple pairs of jeans dry within 2hours. It is a little bit loud at first but after the first 20mins of the first wash it quieted down a bit and we don’t really notice it now. The water tank in the door is great as you can easily see when it needs emptying. The lint trap is easy to clip out and clean. Overall very impressed. I haven’t tried the smart feature yet so can’t comment on that.

    Some minor design flaws

    Its OK, however the routing for the condense drainage pipe is not great. Very easy to kink this when installation the machine and unless you have access to the back of the machine ocne its installed its impossible to tell if its kinked or not. Pipe is also fairly short. Small socks get caught in the door too easily, covering them in link. Only one of the program settings makes the clothes truly dry. Most programs do not allow you to select super dry. Its quiet though and hopefully low running costs. AO deliovery was spot on as usual.
