Clothes dryer reviews

We test nine clothes dryers in the CHOICE labs, including models from Electrolux, Fisher & Paykel, Simpson, Whirlpool and more.

Last updated: 20th August 2014

With so many types and features on offer, shopping for clothes dryers can be pretty intimidating. Although their job is pretty simple, a smart buy will save money and time in the long run – so it pays to do your homework. Luckily we've already done it for you! We test nine models, priced from $299 to $739, to tell you:

  • what to buy
  • which dry clothes fastest
  • which use the least energy
  • which cost the least to run
  • which are quietest.

Need to know the right type for you and what to look for before you start shopping around? See our clothes dryer buying guide for our expert advice and tips.
