Bosch Axxis Series : WTE86300US 24in Condenser Electric Tumble Dryer
Experience energy-efficient drying with the WTE86300US, an Axxis condenser dryer that comes with a stylish design and useful, intuitive features such as the 11 drying programs and the WrinkleBlock tumbling action system.
- The unit comes with 11 drying programs for customization, based on whatever kind of load you might have. - The WrinkleBlock system tumble dries the load for one hour to remove wrinkles. - The LED display lets you control and set up electronic settings with ease. - The stainless steel drum is more durable compared to plastic and porcelain tubs and can withstand faster spin cycles. It is less prone to chipping paint, which reduces the risk of snags in the load. - The machine uses a high volume air flow and moderate heat for safe drying of clothes. - The wool cycle is perfect for drying delicate fabrics. - The reduced ironing option produces loads with less wrinkles. - The touch up cycle reduces the drying time for lighter loads. - The electric energy source requirement makes this more functional than gas dryers and you can plug it in anywhere there’s an electrical outlet. - There’s a timed dry option so you wont have to check on the load before it is done. - An audible signal tells you when the machine is done drying. - The interior drum light makes looking for missing pairs of clothing easier. - The lint filter indicator tells you when the lint filter needs maintenance. This prevents the blockage of the filter, which could clog the drainage tubings and vents. - The built-in moisture monitoring system automatically detects the amount of moisture in the load and adjusts the drying cycle accordingly. - The stackable design allows you to save on space in the laundry room.
One of the main advantages is the stackable design. This is a compact dryer, perfect for small apartments, but it allows you to save more in space when you stack the dryer over the washer. The LED controls are also easy to use. The machine works quickly without any noise. It does a great job at drying clothes well and fast without damaging the fabric.
This is truly just a basic dryer with none of the drying cycles that are present in other models. Unfortunately, there is no Air Fluff/No heat drying cycle, which is perfect for drying delicates and comforters for added softness, no jeans cycle for drying denim wear, and no active wear cycle for drying athletic gear.
Another disadvantage is the flimsy design of the lint filter, which tends to break down first. Regular maintenance of the filter is a must or else it clogs up fairly often. Finally, the machine emits a loud sound at the end of each cycle, which cannot be turned down unless you place felt padding underneath.
