We have a washer-drier but I’ve never actually used the drying cycle on it. I prefer to use non-electric clothes driers. It saves on electricity and you can be getting on with the next load while the previous one is hanging.
I’ve compared Sheila’s Maids in a previous post – however, there’s only so much ceiling space available for drying laundry. And, if like ours your ceilings are low, floor-standing clothes driers are a great addition or alternative; we use both types. our 2-metre 4-lath Sheila’s maid hangs about one and a half loads of washing, the one above has seven 2.4 metre slats – a stonker!
We have two floor-standing clothes driers – my favourite is a vintage 4-panel wooden one that fans out from a central axis. It folds flat and takes up very little room.
