Electrolux EW6C5722CB: the best cheap
Electrolux offers an attractive condensation model at an affordable price. It is highly appreciated by users for its various programs, its relatively quiet operation (66 dB) and its correct capacity of 7 kg.
In addition, this machine has a SensiCare system that adjusts the drying time (thanks to special sensors) to the moisture content of the laundry to prevent overdrying. In this way, you save time and energy by preserving the new look of your clothes longer.
However, it is not the appliance that is the least energy consuming since it is classified B, with an estimated annual consumption of 503 kW. Its consumption still remains below other competitors offered at the same price.
On the practical side, you have the possibility to schedule a delayed start (up to 20 hours). You can also choose the opening position of the porthole (the door is reversible and you have four options for the placement of the handle).
According to the users, this machine dries the linen correctly and quickly. The different drying modes can confuse a little (at the beginning) people who are not used to using a machine with so many programs.
Indeed, this model includes several modes (fragile, programmed drying, denim, synthetic, sports textiles, actualize, mix, easy ironing, synthetic ready to put away, sheets, etc.) so that you can adapt the cycle to your linen.
Other practical points are the different indicators on the machine: remaining time indicator, filter indicator, empty tank indicator, clean capacitor indicator, child safety. A beep alerts you when the current program is finished.
In the end, this model will be suitable for a small family thanks to its capacity of 7 kg. The SensiCare sensor system helps preserve new clothes longer, and the different programs available offer a wide choice of cycles for various types of laundry. This model consumes a little more than the models you find in the mid-range.
Beko DCY824: the cheap alternative
We all know the Turkish brand Beko, which has quickly established itself with its cheap home appliances. Beko has been able to develop better quality products while keeping the attractiveness of its prices, as is the case for the DCY824 tumble dryer.
This front-loading unit is also a condensing model that uses Sensor technology: thanks to humidity sensors, the unit determines the drying time for optimal results. The laundry does not turn unnecessarily to avoid damaging clothing and overuse in electricity.
It has a capacity of 8 kg, it is rare for a device at this price, but significant. It is perfectly suited for a family of three or four people.
Effective, this model is classified in category B. We can obviously do better, but at this price, we must recognize that we can not have everything.
The range of features it contains is another asset of this model. It has everything you need in terms of programs: from dry-ironing to dry-overs, to sturdy textiles such as delicate clothes, and special express and fresh programs.
It has an automatic anti-crease option, interior lighting of the drum and offers a delayed start-up to 24 hours.
We also appreciate the valuable indicators of the washing machine price in Bangladesh: a visual indicator of unwinding, remaining time, end of cycle sound indicator, saturation indicator of the plush filter or even full tank.
It is equipped with anti-vibration walls that reduce the noise; it is thus possible to reach an acceptable sound volume of 66 dB.
The plus: the Aquawave drum, equipped with cells, which reduces the friction between the linen and the drum, thus preserving the clothes.
In the end, this Beko model that offers a capacity of 8 kg, and various practical programs including an anti-crease function, a delayed start, and various indicators, is a good choice among the devices in this range. However, this model is the most energy-hungry of our selection (class B).
The best mid-range tumble dryers
When you are ready to put more than the minimum price, you have more requirements in terms of performance, capacity, energy savings, discretion, and features.
In this range, we have selected two models of tumble dryers, the characteristics of which justify the dedication of a larger budget.
Hotpoint AQC92F7TM2: the best midrange
Hotpoint is affiliated with the Whirlpool group in the United States and Haier in Asia and specializes in major household appliances. It is an advantage? Products that highlight an original design, innovation and especially ecology. A good point that did not leave us indifferent.
This Hotpoint is a front-loading condensing dryer with a porthole. For heat pump dryers, a larger investment will generally be required. But this does not mean that the Hotpoint is not a champion in the economy.
Located in the energy class A ++, it achieves 60% electricity savings compared to a standard model, since it consumes only 260 kWh per year, based on 160 cycles of drying per year.
For comparison, the Beko DCY824 introduced just before, has an annual power consumption of 561 kWh. It, therefore, reaches the energy performance of a heat pump dryer, the financial investment less. With a capacity of 9 kg, it can easily support the laundry of a family of four to five people.
Its somewhat futuristic design is nice, with an LED display in the middle, a function dial on the left and a bracket on the right with the various warning lights. There are many buttons on the other hand: its handling can be a little difficult at first.
