Product Overview

This Candy tumble dryer is full of fantastic features to help you enjoy effortless laundry days. With its 8kg capacity, it’s perfect for any medium-sized household. Its efficient heat pump technology recycles hot air inside the drum, making it really economical to run. This model also uses sensor drying technology to work out how much moisture is left in your clothes, stopping the machine when they’re dry. This means you’ll only use the energy you need, and your garments will be protected from over-drying too. You can even download new cycles from your compatible smartphone, thanks to NFC connectivity.

Heat pump tumble dryers are super-efficient, but to save the most energy, programmes may take a little longer to dry your clothes than on standard dryers. It’s important not to overload the drum either, so they can perform at their best.

Great service

After been messed about by another company we decided to use ao.com we find them very professional and kept informed throughout the process we will be using them again

Great dryer

Great value tumble dryer. Simple screen to follow as can be timed or set on a specific material type. Water collects in the front of the door which is visually easy to see when getting full. Only downside is it's a bit on the noisy side.

Great tumble dryer

Great service! A very economical tumble dryer. Takes a little getting used to with the programs. Yes it does take longer to dry a load but not to much of a problem there. Towels come out fluffier. Still very happy with it.

Good entry-level tumble dryer

Controls could be clearer and the waste water accumulating in the porthole will take some time to get used to, but the main reason I bought this was for its energy efficiency. It has replaced a 15-year old cat D condenser, so hopefully it will be easier on the electricity bills.

Pretty good

We had a BEKO tumble drier for several years and I was reluctant to change. Unfortunately there wasn't any in stock and with the mounting pile of washing the Candy's was the next best. There are some clever design improvements that I've noticed over the BEKO, the filter is far easier to clean and the water collecting in the door makes it obvious when it needs emptied. Perhaps a digital display of how long would have been nice but I found that with my old one it changed so much as the dampness was measured by the sensors that it didn't really reflect the time left anyway. All in all very pleased with the dryer, loads of room and A++ efficiency. L


Very pleased with this purchase,fast delivery as well.
