7Kg Condenser dryer with 3 year parts and labour guarantee, only £199 at Co-Op electricals

Found 25th Jan 2015
After my dryer went kaput a few days ago I've been looking for a replacement, all of the lesser brands seem to only offer a one year warranty and the decent Bosch dryers start around £300 with two year warranties.

I think it's a good deal, with free next day delivery included as well.

Needs 'White Knight' in title.

Needs 'White Knight' in title.



Crosslee PLC, formed by the tumble dryer division of 'Philips', British manufactured....perhaps they should not have a 'stigma' attached.

And this Which award.

Have to say, never had a White Knight personally...but my parents have had a tumble dryer going for about the past 15 years (standard, not condensed) and although the bearings squeak a bit these days they still are no sooner to replacing it.

Would be better going for the Bosch one on here yesterday,bigger load ,sensor dryer,B class so a slight energy saving as well.Sure it was £249.Was black though.

I did not know they had a 'Stigma attached'. White Knight have been around for a long time. They produced a gas heated dryer many years ago that had a good reputation along with the conventional dryers they produced. I have no idea of today's quality.

Yeah just had a look,all gone pity.Mines has got the dreaded bearings squeak.

Bought the C86A7W the other day from Amazon, £177 delivered, slight better spec than one listed.
Replaced our C83AW which lasted 7 years, took a good battering through the baby clothes years.
Highly recommend White Knight, difference between a B & C rated drier, doubt you'd really notice. Ours certainly doesn't seem to put a dent in the electricity bill

Promotion doesn't give electric consumption figures, but White Knight similar machines equate to around 67p per cycle. That's vey high and makes this machine 'an avoid'.

This should not even be considered, even if they gave the machine away. Unless you wish to prop up ailing power generators.

Potential buyers should bare in mind that an average user would be financially better of by spending £500 on the Bosh WTW 863S1GB as the electric consumption is nearly a third cheaper.

The only possible justification for purchasing these power guzzling machines is if you were a very light user, or you were fitting out somebody else's property and didn't have to pick up the bill.

67p doesn't sound too bad. Never thought about it before or checked mine, I was expecting about a quid. What's a good/average cost per dry?

Dumbstruck, so you would prefer to pay an extra £300 upfront than an extra 25-30% on your electricity bill? That would take a Long time to pay for itself even with regular use...

We got an Indesit a couple of years ago for around £200 with discount codes from Very/Isme, IDCE8450BH...once again only a years warranty (not had any problems though) but a more energy efficient B rating.

myoung90 - How Kaput is your tumbler? If it works in every way but heating, then it's about a £7 fix. Happened to our Hotpoint condenser tumbler.

Argos have a Candy condenser 9kg load B rated sensor dryer reduced from £299 to £199 have a look if this one goes out of stock !

How? My Zanussi washer dryer has stopped drying. Everything seems to work except the heating. I think the washing machine heats the water tho.

When I plug it in it trips the RCD

Checked all of the obvious things already, it was bought second hand so it doesn't owe me much but still a PITA.
