A rating!

Good! Maybe that's because the Aqualtis leaves the clothes almost dry. One model gets down to 38% residual moisture only, isn't it?

Wow that looks really nice!!! :D Not to sure I'd put a full 6kg of laundry in there to dry though, when you compare the size of that drum with a normal standalone 6kg dryer, but I bet it produces some good results drying wise with a smaller load!!

The drum's actually pretty huge. Although, not quite as big as a dryer.

My point exactly!) You'd probably get a decent sized load in there because after all they are 8kg wash load drums but 6kg drying is a push from what Ive seen of their drums in the shop :) Very nice idea though I'm hoping Hoover do the same with the current VisionHD machines, I'd love to have a machine that can wash large washload but can also dry clothes :D:D!

You can call it a crumpledryer when putting in a 6 kg load :-)
Guess overloading any tumbledryer along with only 38% residual moisture will give an A rating energy wise.

I think thats only on the 1600 Aqualtis from what Ive read so i doubt the 1400 version can get it down to as low as that but hey, you never know!! LOL
