The White Knight ECO86A is the latest model in the sensor-drying range which builds on the success of the ECO83A. The ECO86A offers all the same microprocessor-controlled electronic sensors which work with a user selectable drying function, where you choose the dryness level you want from a choice of 6 settings and the sensor stops the programme early if it senses the clothes are already dry to that level.
This energy-efficient, 7kg tumble dryer also has an LED digital display, delayed start capability, and the option to turn off the anti-crease function. According to a Which? Magazine tumble dryer review carried out in July 2009, a typical electric dryer costs around £95 a year to run while the White Knight ECO86A only costs around £38, giving an estimated saving of just under £60.00 a year!
If you are planning to stack your tumble dryer on top of a washing machine, it is essential that you use the stacking and restraining kit to keep them safely attached to each other. Just check the box above before adding to cart.
Gas tumble dryers were pioneered in Europe by Crosslee plc, one of the largest manufacturers of tumble dryers in Europe with their White Knight brand. Gas dryers function in exactly the same way as electric dryers except for the energy source, which is mains gas. White Knight's tests show gas dryers produce 50% less carbon than typical electric dryers, and have 60% lower annual running costs.
IMPORTANT: Your White Knight Gas Tumble Dryer must be installed by a gas engineer registered with the latest HSE approved 'Gas Safe Register' scheme which replaced the old Corgi registration. Visit www.gassaferegister.co.uk to find a local engineer. Please satisfy yourself you can find a competent, suitably qualified engineer before taking delivery of your new gas tumble dryer as the cost of returning an unwanted appliance is your responsibility.
