This white Beko DRCS68W Condenser Tumble Dryer is a robust and functional dryer that is easy to install in the laundry room thanks to the condenser design. No plumbing or external connections are needed.

The Beko DRCS68W Condenser Tumble Dryer has a large 6 kg capacity, allowing you to do larger loads and making it perfect for busy families. What's more, it has a sensor to detect when clothes are dry, meaning that the machine operates for only as long as necessary, keeping your clothes in good shape and reducing your electric bills. A handy 60-minute timer is also included if you prefer to manually control the drying cycle of your Beko DRCS68 W Condenser Tumble Dryer.

The fluff filter is very effective at removing fluff from the load, and is easily cleaned. The drying action itself is excellent thanks to the reverse-action drum and final-cool tumble.

Getting all these features from a reliable brand at this price has to be one of the best deals around! Upgrade your laundry room with the Beko DRCS68W Condenser Tumble Dryer.

Now the question is should I purchase the cheapest condenser dryer I can find for say c.£200 ( C energy rated) or splash out £600+ for an A rated machine?

Which would work out cheaper over 5 years to buy and run? A or C ??

I'm tending to sway towards a C
#2
I have no idea but you have to spend £400 on energy over 260 weeks - so assuming you used it once a week it would have to cost £1.54 more energy per wash in the C rated machine to make the A rated machine cheaper over the 5 years. Assuming both need the same amount of washing powder. And assuming they both last 5 years. And assuming you have no great interest in the value of either/both at the end of the 5 year period.

Looks like a decent enough deal :)

... Assuming both need the same amount of washing powder...


Washing powder. In a tumble drier?
#4
yep, it's not knowing the volume of washing powder required that makes this such a hard decision :D

Yes, I was assuming none in both cases for this mathematical comparison

Bounce! I meant how many sheets of Bounce!!

To be honest I think I'd be happier with Beko appliances than a whole host of other economy brands for white goods - their quality was notorious not so long back (bit more for AV than white goods) and are on track to a way better quality level now.

Looking on their website, Which.co.uk doesn't have much positive to say about this machine. They only rate it at 46%
Just thought i'd share!

Review:

There's not much to recommend about this freestanding Beko dryer; it has high energy consumption and some very poor drying times, with a typical load of synthetics taking 2 hours.

The cotton program is better taking 147 minutes to dry a full load of 6 kg. This model has a poor condenser which allows moisture laden air to escape, therefore we recommend that this dryer is used in a well ventilated space - otherwise you could end up with a damp room.

The DRCS68 uses a humidity sensor to determine the length of drying time. You can manually set drying times of up to an hour if you prefer.

This model is child friendly - there's a safety lock to stop the door locking when not in use, so inquisitive toddlers can't get trapped inside, and the programs can be locked with a childproof setting to prevent little fingers changing them when your back is turned.

A warning light will let you know when to clean the lint filter, and you can also select whether you want a buzzer to tell you when your laundry is ready. The door can be fitted with left or right hinges.

Pros: Child safety door lock, childproof program setting
Cons: Condenser is poor, average energy consumption, very long synthetic program, noisy

so what does which? recommend for a condenser dryer?
#10
are the vented dryers better for drying quickly?
#11
the vented ones use heat from the room and therefore do dry a wee bit quicker kilo for kilo. Condensers act as a room heater.

I just can't work out whether it is cash positive to fork out for an A rated condenser. I don't want a vented one due to the damp air they will pump out
#12
£189.99 for this in sainsburys and currys when you use code 10BACK ;)
#13
Or for the same money, or less if you search hard, you can buy the white knight 77AW, similar spec, slightly higher load of 7KG, & made in great britain! Come on, this is the last we've got for white goods manufacurers here, support them. I know I will when I need to replace my tumble dryer, assuming they're still here.
#14
White Knight vented all the way for me!!
Have used WK for over 15 years with absolutely no problems
#15
why would you want a tumble dryer? it seems a bit of a con to me - to have to pay for the dryer and then the energy to use it too. Serous question btw.
#16
You have to pay for the energy to run one because the solar powered ones didn't sell very well. Something to do with people using washing lines when the sun was out.
#17
I've got the silver version of this -
much better than the Hotpoint we had before that cost £150 more.

Only problem with it is that the sensor isn't brilliant - most loads generally need an additional 20 mins beyond the point that the machine auto-stops thinking everything's dry.
#18
Had mine for a couple of years now and it's only ever let me down twice and that was my fault. I forget to clean the heat exchanger at the bottom of the machine and when it gets clogged it can't dry the laundry. It's very quick at drying and being a condenser dryer mean I have it in the spare bedroom in a cupboard. Think I paid £250 for it and it's better then the White Knights one I had (a hose split and leaked everywhere ruining the floor in was on, the ceiling and wall in the room below).
#19
Vented outside will generally be better if you have the option and far reduces the condesation these can create inside your home

If you have a younger family a tumble dryer is a very nice thing to have for the winter months for the towels and sheets etc that you undoubedly get through

It probably won't last very well but at £195 its cheap enough I guess not to have to (bad policy for environment but arguably better for the pocket) Downside is if it keeps breaking down the hassle and incoveneience compared witha saya Siemens / Bosch at more than double the price
#20
This might sound like a silly question but will this shrink clothes? I have a combi washer dryer and it is only good for towels, bedding and cotton shirts. I can't do anything else in as it shrinks and it is useless with jeans. I have a baby due March 2010 and I could really do with a reliable dryer which can handle baby clothes without making them any smaller!
#21
If you dry clothes at too high a heat or for too long then they will shrink in any tumble dryer.
This model will be no different in that respect to any other

Try drying on low heat. most baby clothes I believe are generally cotton so should be fine for drying but check labels
banned#22
Has anyone had much experience with Beko? they seem pretty new on the market so i'm kind of reluctant to get one.
#23
Not new, just becoming a bit more serious in the UK market - they were previously a bushesque budget brand selling basic quality electricals but now I believe they are selling a far higher quality than many budget brands but still maintaining a good price. Hardly a Bosch or AEG but hardly that price either.

It's a Turkish company.
