Extra options

Noise level
Specified in decibels (dB). 15 dB correspond to whisper, 50 to 60 dB to conversation, 85 dB to traffic noise. For dryers, this parameter ranges from 61 to 69 decibels.
Although by and large the dryers are white, some of their parts are silver, gray, black, metallic and other colors, which allows the device to match the interior.
Despite the fact that the dimensions of the dryers differ little, it is worth paying attention to this parameter to make sure that the device can be installed exactly where you want.
Special marks
Dryers have other functions, for example, changing the direction of rotation of the drum, a drying sensor, etc. But these functions are called differently by each manufacturer.
