Whirlpool has definitely made a difference in the domestic appliance market. With its sixth sense technology, they have been able to cater better to the needs of their customers. Most of their products come with sensors that can think logically making it far easier to handle the operation of appliances. Whirlpool LEQ 8033 SW Pro Series 8 heavy duty Vented Tumble Dryer is a perfect complement to any of the whirlpool washers. Though quite slim and compact in appearance, this dryer can take a laundry of 10 kilograms, which is double the capacity of majority of its competitors. Like all other Whirlpool products, this comes with an automatic sensor drying system.
The LEQ8033SW 10kg Vented dryer easily merges with a washer and any existing décor as it comes in a pure white finish. It shares a dimension of 914.4 millimetres in height, 686 in width and 743 in depth and weighs about 51 kilograms. It is a freestanding one but can be stacked up on to the washing machine too as it is very compact and slim. There are four adjustable legs that can be tweaked to get the machine to stand sturdy on the ground. The dryer is a front loading vented tumble dryer. The door of the dryer is positioned in the front and is wide enough for easy loading and unloading of clothes.
The most significant feature of this dryer is definitely its capacity. With a whopping 10 kilograms of laundry, it definitely has twice the drying space of any other dryer. This capacity enables one to finish work quickly and easily as the entire load can be finished in one shot. This is very ideal for people who have a large family or in places where the humidity rate is very high.
Automatic sensor drying:
Whirlpool LEQ8033SW White Colour Tumble Dryer packs an automatic sensor drying system that simplifies the whole drying procedure. With the help of this sensor, the laundry is monitored with the drying process getting adjusted accordingly. The moisture level present in the load is identified and the required temperature and time taken is automatically set by the dryer. This makes it trouble free for the user and ensures there is additional leisure time at hand.
Another highlight of this is that the drum continues to tumble intermittently to avoid the laundry from forming creases or wrinkles. Even though a cycle is finished, the drum continues this operation for nearly 120 minutes to keep the clothes free from tangle and folds.
Cyclogic colour coded controls:
As mentioned earlier, this dryer is better compatible with another whirlpool washer as there is a Cyclic colour code system embedded in its technology. With the washer and dryer being the same brand, these colour coded controls help in with operation of programmes. The entire laundry task gets simplified with the help of the colur coded controls on the washer and the average matching dryer too.
Programmes and Temperature settings:
Along with the automatic drying programme the dryer also has additional 8 different programmes to choose from. In the automatic drying programme, the dryer itself monitors the load and adjusts the temperature and time taken for a cycle to be completed. The jeans care programme enables the garment to be ideally dried. It avoids creasing and over drying too thereby avoiding streaks of discolouration. The dryer tends to keep tumbling intermittently to avoid creases, which normally occurs with drying.
There are four temperature settings that comes in handy with the drying programmes. The entire drying process is based on a heated drying rack, which is quite unique to this model. This quickens the drying process and is far more efficient enabling outstanding drying performance.
The accessories that come with this dryer are a 2 feet long vent hose together with a 100 millimetre metal ducting connection that aides in draining the water that gets collected while drying the clothes. Now with the use of the 4 way venting kit, users can easily drain the water despite outside venting not being possible. This is an optional accessory, which is available in any of the whirlpool outlets.
Whirlpool LEQ 8033 SW White Colour Tumble Dryer comes with a warranty of 12 months for both parts and labour.
