Why Has it Scored 83?

our review analysis indicates that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 89%, based on 188 reviews.
This tumble dryer is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer tumble dryers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This White Knight tumble dryer has running costs of £650 over 10 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 880+ laundry dryers that we have calculated running costs for.
The C38AW has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Shorter than average cycle time
Quieter than average noise level
Smaller than average drum capacity
Does not have a built-in display

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each tumble dryer by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the tumble dryer is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec tumble dryers come to market, the older tumble dryers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
