Less wasteful drying
The Whirlpool AZA 9790 tumble dryer has a less wasteful drying process. Unlike a conventional dryer which uses a traditional heating element to heat the drum, similar to a hairdryer or electric heater, this dryer uses a more efficient heatpump technology. It uses compressed gas to generate heat and so is much more economical and less wasteful of energy.
A-40% Energy Efficiency
The AZA 9790 tumble dryer has an A-40% energy efficiency. This means it is 40% designed to be more efficient than an A-energy class dryer.
Fitted with Whirlpool's advanced sensor 6th SENSE technology, this dryer is intelligent when it comes to drying your clothes. Sensors continually monitor moisture in the drum and adjust the cycle time to achieve optimum drying results. Therefore, you no longer need to worry about your clothes being over-dried, and the dryer uses only the necessary resources.
Large drum capacity
With a large 9kg drum capacity you are able to dry larger loads including bulkier items such as towels and duvets. In addition, as there is more space for your clothes to rotate in the drum they will crease less.
For ultimate convenience this dryer has a wide opening door, to give you more space when adding and removing clothes. It also has a start delay option so you can choose at what time the dryer begins, as well as an indicator to tell you when to empty the filter.
This dryer has some special programmes including delicates and big items such as duvets.

I bought this dryer on August 25, 2014. It was slow to dry to begin with, and over the next few months, the dryer took longer and longer to dry, to a point where it would not dry at all. I called customer support in February 2015 and they sent a repairman. The repairman adjusted some settings but said that the problem was down to the heat pump technology used in the model which could not be fixed. I followed his suggestions to keep the room warmer and well ventilated, but the dryer still took up to 8 hours to dry a regular load of clothes. I called customer support again and they sent out another engineer in early May 2015. The response from the engineer was the same as the first. I called customer support again, this time asking to return the dryer. They told me that the service company reported that the dryer was fixed and that I would need to have another engineer out in order to confirm that the dryer does not work. The third engineer visit was on 29 May, 2015. He ran diagnostics on the dryer and his response was the same as the previous visit. I asked him explicitly to report that the dryer could not be fixed. I called Whirlpool customer service on 2 June, 2015, and they told me that the service company again reported that there was nothing wrong with the dryer and that I would need another engineer to visit, and that if they reported again that there was nothing wrong with the dryer I could be charged for the service call. I refused this, as I now feel they are running me around in circles until I give up. The customer service person would not put me through to a manager and would not provide a replacement or refund for the dryer or any other options.
So I am now stuck with this broken dryer with apparently no recourse, even though there is a one year replacement guarantee. You can not imagine how frustrating it is to wait 8 hours for a load of laundry to dry. AVOID!
The service I recieved from this company was second to none. I ordered it late at night and once I received confirmation from Amazon with the delivery date, I emailed them asking if there was any chance it could be delivered sooner. I received a prompt and courteous email back very quickly, with a satisfactory answer. On delivery day, even though I wasn't home, I know that the company called to say when they were about an hour away which was perfect. I can't fault the service and would highly recommend both the product and the company.
When I say long cycles I mean LONG CYCLES no half hour or one hour cycle is going to dry your mixed load in this heat pump condenser, sensor tumble dryer. If you want your jeans, towels sheets lets say 2-3 hours. Remember the A rating? and the 6th sense overdry protection. well tumble damper is what you get. A person can have 6th sense but a tumble dryer, well it's a machine so there goes that 6th sence. You will have to check if your washing is dry at the "end" cycle. Take out all the items and re-load with the damp items, because you are not allowed to interupt a drying cycle once started. Remember this machine is suppose to work out how long it takes to dry your mixed load.
There is also a drying time adjustment button so you can select the duration of cycle in ten minutes steps up to 180 minutes. well if this machine said "END" there is no way in hell this machine is going to let you use this option. we tried it and it said "ended" after a short time of tumbling..Read more ›
