Advice on load capacity for dryers

The load capacity you need with a dryer depends on the size of your household. Make sure that the load capacity of the dryer is the same as that of the washing machine. It's annoying when not all wet laundry fits in the dryer in one go.

1 or 2 people

Do you often do small loads of laundry or are you alone or with two people? Choose a dryer with a load capacity of 7 kilos. This is enough if you don't have the laundry pile up a lot. If you do a large load of laundry in 1 go, choose 8 kilos.

Family with 1 or 2 children

A dryer with an 8kg load capacity is suitable for a family with 1 or 2 children. If you want to dry all the laundry at the same time, you need this space. Do you have small children at home? In that case, it's useful to be able to dry the clothes quickly in case of accidents.

Family with 3 or more children
