Frequently asked questions

  • Do washer dryers need a vent?

      Washer dryers are condenser dryers, which use a condensation process to remove moisture from clothes, and then drain the condensed water away. So Washer Dryers do not need a vent.

  • Can I run Wash only or Dry only cycles?

      Yes, you can wash or dry clothes separately.
      So, if as example, it’s a nice sunny day you don’t have to run a dry cycle after your wash, you can just hang the clothes out instead.
      Or if you just need to dry some items, you can also choose specific dry only cycles.

  • Can a washer dryer be used in a garage?

      Yes, a washer dryer can be kept and used in a garage.
      But, it is advised that the garage should be at least 10°C for the washer dryer to operate properly.
      If the garage is colder than 10°C, you may need to install a space heater to keep the temperature up.

  • Are washer dryers all cold fill?

      No, not all washer dryers are cold fill. There are still some washer dryers that have a hot water connection, but these are becoming increasingly rare. The vast majority of washer dryers on the market are now cold fill only.
