Please, can anyone recommend a good tumble dryer? Mine has been pulling threads on flannels, towels and similar items, something which hadn’t been a problem with my previous one. It is now on its way out and I’m worried my new one will do the same, I would welcome any help/suggestion's you can give me. Thanks in advance.

Bosch but check that the model is European made as opposed to Chinese. Usually European ones have a five year guarantee, Chinese two/three.

Whichever make you decide - get one that is Heat Pump. Slightly more expensive to purchase, but large savings in cost of running it.

I’m sure there was a thread on here not long ago about Bosch tumble dryers. I can’t do links but recommend you read it.

I have just read this - it was on a forum and wax originally talking about a washer-dryer:

Dryer vent was snagging and twisting and tearing all my clothes. Called LG and they said to schedule repair. Instead, I searched further and took out my dryer lint trap and noticed it was all clogged up with lint in the bottom, causing the corner of the trap to stick up and snag clothes. I took a metal coat hanger and cleared out all the stuffed up lint in the bottom of the trap. The lint trap slides in completely flush, again, and no more snagging of clothes, etc!

We have had excellent luck with Asko.

My Bosch is great - I have had it about 15 years.

You can’t do better than a Miele heat pump dryer.

Miele or Beko, both great brands. We bought a Beko condenser tumble a few months ago to replace our 20 year old Bosch. It's great - fast, efficient and the preset programs are just right for mixed loads, towels etc.
