Notes:
Condenser dryers – heated air is continually passed through the load. Instead of exhausting the air, the dryer uses a heat exchanger to cool the air and condense the water vapour into a drain or collection tank. The air is then reheated and passed through the load.
Vented dryers – heated air is passed through the load, with the moist air vented out of the front of the appliance or through a venting duct.
