This is a beautiful item and it has a huge glass door as you can see, looks more like a washing machine as opposed to a drier .So hot, so reliable and amazing results .The water container holds a lot empty every time you use (and the fluff filter is easy to reach the water container is at the top), filter for fluff is under door and condenser fluff container is at lower left side(requires cleaning around once a month, hose under a running tap!)
On opening, a light pops on just like a fridge ! The light goes off when cycle starts or door closes or cycle has ended.
The electronic display is great and accurate and the programmes are easy to use.
One flaw , which is very annoying is that if you lean over the button it resets the drying cycle and it is a very touch sensitive start button , and if the door opens it doesn't show how long has elapsed, so it takes you back to the original start cycle time. But because it is brainier than me, it somehow has a chip in it to automatically detect when stuff is dry anyway so doesnt do another 2hr cycle!
Between 'cycles' it sort of stops and you think "right, I can open door now that is it done" then it starts rolling the clothes over again in around a minute as it switches between modes!
Apart from this annoying 3 beep noise, that you get (and it can be switched to OFF) but handy, it lets you know it has ended, same as a microwave oven, and if you ignore it it beeps again and you want to take a hammer to it as it says OK IVE DRIED YOUR CLOTHES- ATTEND TO ME! I think it does a 3 beep tone every minute for around 5 minutes then it ends.
Built well and after owning for 9 months I would heartily recommend to all, its such a smashing drier!
