Rated 4 out of 5 by Nickie999 Rather Noisy
Luckily we have a remote utility room with a thick fire door but if we didn't the noise the condenser makes would be very annoying. It's like having an air conditioning unit in the room which of course it is, in effect, but fridges are similar and are not anything like as noisy. For the money I'd expect better on that front.
The machine has lots of settings for dryness (on the cotton programme only mind you) - which you can pre-programme and forget, effectively calibrating your machine. All good, but it does not explain whether having a water softener is the same as having ultra soft water for the mineral content function to work, so I am playing with that setting as things are seeming slightly damp coming out, although it does not over-dry deliberately. I am sure we will settle on a usable setting.
Warning - you are supposed to leave to stand for an hour before use (as it contains a compressor). This is not made clear up front - the advice is buried deep in the instructions. A large label on the door might be more sensible. You can ruin a compressor if you transport on it's side and don't leave to settle.
