Drying machine: advice on choice and feedback
The process of washing today is quite fast, as modern manufacturers offer a wide range of home appliances. But after washing, you also need to dry things, and therefore the drying machine will help you. Choose it should be in accordance with certain tips.
Determined with dimensions
When buying a drying machine, you should first determine where it will stand. Modern models do not differ in compactness, so the type should be chosen depending on the room parameters. Most of the machines are delivered in the following sizes: up to 90 cm in height and up to 60 cm in depth. True, there is a smaller technique, but it has less drum capacity.
The drying machine should stand next to the washing machine, so the washing process will become more convenient and rational, and you will not have to run around with the basins of laundry around the house. Some models suggest that you can put a washing machine on top of them, but then you should give preference to the front-loading technique.
Choosing a drum
The amount of laundry depends on the capacity of the drum, which can be washed in one go. The optimum solution is a washing and drying machine with a volume of at least 100 liters. Remember that the drum should not be stuffed with linen butt - leave room to effectively circulate the air inside and smooth the laundry without crushing it.
Some models stop the drum during operation to start the process in the opposite direction. This serves as a guarantee that the laundry will not crumple. Some machines are able to operate in a non-stop mode, that is, special blades in the drying process are flipped over a certain trajectory.
Ideally, a drying machine should have a speed of rotation of at least 50 rpm, but this figure may vary depending on the washing program and drying. Pay attention and cover the drum - this is important for the quality of the dried laundry. It is better if the inner surface is made of strong materials, for example stainless steel. Dura-Finish is durable and durable.
Cleaning from moisture
All drying machines operate according to the same principle: the laundry rotates in the drum, is exposed to the circulating air, resulting in evaporation of moisture. The moist air produced by drying is removed from the drum of the machine. Modern washing and drying machine can work with two methods of moisture removal: forced ventilation or continuous circulation. In the first case, air is discharged outside the premises, and continuous circulation is typical for condensing-type drying machines.
Drying by program
There are many modes, based on which a modern drying machine operates. The instruction prescribes the right choice of the program, so that the laundry is soft, fresh and practically smoothed. Types of drying are very different:
- Drying by residual moisture. In this case, you get the laundry, which contains the specified process of moisture. In this mode, drying under the iron is highlighted, that is, ironing will be lightened, and drying in the cabinet - that is, things will not need ironing at all.
- Drying, depending on the type of fabric. To do this, simply select the control button on the panel, which indicates the type of fabric, and then the program starts.
- Drying by type of clothes. The program allows you to dry jeans, blouses and jackets in different temperature conditions.
- Many models of drying machines work in programsextra- or super-drying. But these modes are suitable for things from dense fabrics, and also multilayered.
If the program is selected correctly, then your laundry will not only be carefully dried, but also pleasant to the touch. As additional programs can be used for ventilation, cold blowing, when the laundry is blown with air at room temperature.
