This report shows you five established, reliable tumble dryers, performing as owners expect. Our unbiased recommendations are based on combined owner rating scores, which we also share with you.

This ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if the owner ratings reveal poor performance.

The Best Tumble Dryers 2019

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of tumble dryers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the tumble dryers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile this Top 5.

Well Rated Finds The Best UK Products

Our Notes on this Market

2017
This is our third year of researching the UK’s best tumble dryers for sale. This 2017 update sees last years Top 3 shift around. We lose the AEG and White Knight machines, and these are replaced by the Hoover AquaVision and another model from Beko.

It is still a confusing market for the consumer to navigate. We found many nondescript model names, and subtle differences in load size and styling, that make comparison slow.

When making our 2017 report, we found around 100 tumble dryer models at Tesco, 80 at both Argos and John Lewis and around 130 at Amazon. We included both vented and condenser dryers in our calculations. All are freestanding.

The Indesit Ecotime has hundreds of new owner reviews since our July 2016 report, and still retains an average rating of 4.7. Impressive.

You can view the full rating data for 2017, and the Top 5 for 2016 and 2015 here.
