Ok I hear you say, what makes this a good deal? - or should I say what made me buy it!
Bottom line if you compare this to pretty much every other tumble dryer on the market
1) It above 7kg load
2) Its can pump condensate to drain - life to short to empty buckets
3) Its very environmentally friendly
4) Beko have a good reputation see Reevoo
5) AND Price + running cost over 8 years (6 cycles week) = £860.06
6) Damaged box - goods are suppose to be ok (At least one left - (Dont forget to pay on credit card for easy of argument)
Only two cheaper where
White Knight ECO86A Gas - 8 years £832 - Gas no thanks
Beko DHY7340 A++ 7kg - 8 years £855 - for the extra £5 extra 1kg
Oh its spelt wrong, they've added a W to the code
Beko DHY7340 C rating, much cheaper to buy but 8 years though = £996
Nearest Bosch - 8years = £1155 - No drain facility :(
Note - some boschs evaporate condensate to atmosphere - mays well use the radiators to dry.
Had to spend an extra £60 over 8 years buying a similar looking BEKO - WX842430W (Currys another one with the W) Washing machine, both appliances will be seen from the kitchen internal window) :(
*** Dont buy this if its your going to put it in your cold garage / porch it need 5 degree C of ambient heat, it wont work in winter ***
Before you say it - I know I need a life!
But in my spreadsheet the average 8 years was £1500, the dearest where Whirlpool, Hotpoint, Bosch, Miele 8 years at £2000 to £2500.
Refitting a kitchen so if you take an average saving, multiply by Dryer, Washing Machine, Fridge, 2 Ovens, Hob, Freezer, Microwave, Dishwasher, Extractor - you work it out :)
