Are condenser tumble dryer the best to buy, and do u have to do plumbing? …Are condenser tumble dryer the best to buy, and do u have to do plumbing? Thanks


They are better if you do not have a way to vent the hot, danp air out of the room where the dryer is situated.

If you can put a house through a window or vent grille then a conventional vented dryer is usually cheaper to buy and dry faster than condenser dryers.

It's not always pleasant having a window open in the winter which is the season where you can't dry clothes outside.

It's what suits your needs and property best.

Ps the condenser dryer collects the moisture in a bottle or trap which you empty when full or you can water your plants with. You don't need to attach to a drain so no pluming required.

I would buy through ebay at the minute, the AO black friday offers are working at 5% cheaper on there so there's a further £12.45 off through ebay.

I think you will be better off to get a Grundig from Currys, same manufacturer but 5 year warranty included. You will definetely need long warranty, things are not made to last anymore. Had 2 tumble dryers changed over the past 5 years, this is how bad they are. Not this brand, but Hoover and Hotpoint, anyway not much difference.
You may find Grundig at Currys with a code, or from Currys eBay, again with some discount if you're lucky. We've got our Grundig from Currys eBay 2 weeks ago for £270 but only 7kg.
If you go with this one, make sure you've got the option to pay for 5 years warranty, 2 years is not enough.

No plumbing required, 'just plug and play'. The best to buy are probably heat pump tumble dryers, there are more energy efficient but may take slightly more time to dry. Again, plug and play, but if your space is in the garage, forget about these, they can't be placed somewhere where is cold.
Heat pump are more expensive, but with some luck and voucher codes, you may find something for about £300. If you can, get longer warranty, regardless the type of the dryer you want, things are not made to last anymore.
Paid for a Grundig condenser (same make as Beko) £270 2 weeks ago from Currys EBay, but comes with 5 year warranty.

most have the option to plumb into a drain so you don't have to empty the water tray manually.
Thats a good one!

Its not quite as simple really.
Condenser dryer is more efficient then vented one. It takes about 50 minutes to dry 7kg load spun at 1400 rpm. I doubt vented will dry any quicker.
Heat pump is most efficient but more expensive and takes long time to dry.
My choice would be like this
1- heat pump
2- condenser
3- vented

Think of running costs and environmental impact.
If decided to go for a heat pump model tumble dryer it's worth noting you can't remove the condenser unit for easier cleaning. Unless there's now a model that now has that feature.

Worth checking if your condenser unit can be removed on which ever model you decide to buy.

And I can echo going for 5 year manufacturer guarantee. My Electrolux AEG failed at 2 years 8 months of light use. Wasn't worth paying more for a supposedly better brand
I have this, its very good.

Despite the fact the running cost is low, considering how much a heat pump dryer costs, you may not save a lot. However, with some luck, you may get it at a decent price. I was looking at a Samsung heat pump, the cheapest was £600, while a condenser was £200-300. I've decided to go with the condenser for 2 reasons: I've managed to get one with 5 year warranty and also because my space is in the garage, and a heat pump dryer will not perform well in cold environments.
I completely agree with the environmental impact and I would have got the Samsung if it was ok to use it in the garage.
I've recently purchased a vented tumble dryer. One without a sensor, just a timer and a high/low heat setting.

I initially purchased a Beko condensor but it made the room (my office ..) reallllly hot and stuffy, and it just didn't get the clothes properly dry unless I seperated loads into different fabric thicknesses. I sent it back and bought the vented one instead. Really happy with it. Cheaper, B energy rated (same as the condensor one), dries quickly, simple to operate, only one filter to clean.

I considered a heat pump dryer but just hate the idea of relying on sensors to decide when my clothes are dry!
Also its worth mentioning that with a condenser (unvented) drier the energy used to dry the clothes stays in your kitchen (or wherever its sited) and in the cold parts of the year actually goes to help heat your house. With a vented model most of the heat is wasted.
Also have had a Beko condenser for many years (7?) and it's worked perfectly and never needed any attention apart from cleaning the condenser occasionally.

A very good point, especially if you have electric heating anyway.
Is this heat pump or just condenser?

I've been very impressed with beko and see myself using their products more. I now have washer and fridge by them.

chest freezer, upright freezer, dishwasher, tumble drier here...all good except maybe the upright freezer which seems to suffer from brittle plastics. Beko freezers are unusual in that you can use them in an unheated garage.
Since no-one else has mentioned it - if you get a condenser dryer, make sure you empty the lint trap every time you use it, AND clean the condenser itself (usually in a hidden hatch at the bottom of the machine) regularly too (I usually do mine at least once a month). It makes a big difference to drying efficiency and prolongs the life of your machine. I used to buy & sell second hand white goods and there were multiple occasions where I was asked to dump dryers because people had bought new ones thinking their old one was no good, only to get them home and find they had clearly NEVER cleaned the condenser. A thorough clean and they were good as new. Crazy. (same applies to cleaning all the filters in your vacuum cleaner).

That I don't know I'm afraid... the heat pump type hadn't come in when I was still dealing with them. It may be that the new tech doesn't need cleaning, but I doubt it somewhat.... just a case of consulting the manual I suppose.

On my white knight model it's called a heat exchanger, if I remember rightly.

It's a long veined rectangular box that pulls out from the bottom left of the machine.

I use the shower head over the bath to flush it out. Quite a bit of lint and fluff come out that seem to have bypassed the filter.

I do this every 3 months or so.

Here is an example image of one from a Becko machine.
My Samsung a++ heat pump model has double filtering where the old condenser machines had one. They do also provide a long brush to clean the outside of the coil. not had it long enough to know how well the double filter works yet.

Its really not that slow either - not really noticeably slower than the B rated condenser type it replaced. Far less heat and moisture vented to the room too. was £200 more than this one though (with reward gateway staff discount direct from Samsung)
