Do Washer Dryers Need to Be Vented in the UK?

Most washer dryers do not need to be vented. There may be a couple of exceptions to this, but most washer dryers are condensers.

This means that all the water drained from your clothes during the drying process is removed using the same hose that removes dirty water from the washing cycle.

So, when you run a drying cycle on a washer dryer machine, you don’t need to worry about emptying a tank. You also don’t need to install a vent hose, as all of the water is expelled from the machine for you.
