Why Has it Scored 86?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 84%, based on 79 reviews.
This tumble dryer is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer laundry dryers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Zanussi tumble dryer has running costs of £1,400 over 10 years, which puts it in the most expensive 9% of all 840+ tumble dryers that we have calculated running costs for.
The ZDC8203W has some great features:
Quieter than average noise level
Shorter than average cycle time
Has a moisture sensor
Has a reversible doors

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.
