Found 11th Mar
Beko DCU8230W 8kg condenser tumble dryer Available at 199 at co op electrical with 3.99 delivery charge. Found it cheapest at co-op. Nicely reviewed at revoo. I bought 5 year cover at 78.57 as well so giving me a piece of mind for 5 years. Nice one if you are looking for one.

Someone’s living in the past!
Have got one of these, it's been great so far (had it 3- 4 years)

Ours has not caught fire yet, but with any tumble drier I have a smoke alarm right near it.
It looks so sad

Thanks, DTGC8000W looks like a newer model and with 55cm depth so a sleeker model. I like this one better so have cancelled with co op and going to order this one. Thanks for sharing.

heat pump for low energy use (No idea what happens to the water vapor on these)
vent for normal usage
condenser if you don't want to have a vent going out of the wall

I think this is the BEKO I have and really rate it so far
Edited by: "josh971" 12th Mar
We have this model, and whilst it did go wrong around 12mths old it was repaired quickly by BEKO.

Unlike my previous condenser drier this one has a thin(ish) pipe that can be detached from the water tank feed and is small enough to sit inside a waste pipe (can be run into the washing machine waste standpipe). With this placed into the waste the condenser tank never need emptying. (but you must still regularly clean the fluff and condenser unit , which is nice and easy to remove).

I usually go for more expensive brands, but the build quality on this is much better than I expected, to the point where I would now rather buy a Beko over certain more expensive brands (especially Samsung, and Smeg whose domestic appliances I have owned have been unreliable rubbish).
We have had this exact model for a year and it is brilliant. So much so that we bought one for my sister!
Had this for about 4 years with lots of use and it's still going strong.
Your having a laugh!!! I bought this brand new from Curry’s for £99 last month.
Would you be able to dry a 13.5 feather and down double duvet in a 8kg. I’ve never owned a tumble dryer. TIA

Duvets are hit and miss if they get tangled up you may need to untangle it and put it back in

Would do that over airing regardless

Beko have spent a fortune on product development lately. Most of my white goods are Beko. No issues at all.

I have a heat pump beko dryer. A full 7kg load can take up to 3 hours to dry, which suits my lifestyle as I just do one load daily, but not everyone's, especially those with children.
Less than full loads are done quicker and it works out with sensor dry when to stop.

Same as a condenser the water is collected in a tank to be emptied, but this can be emptied into a drain automatically on my model.

Overall, they are slower, but much cheaper to run, mine uses significantly less than 1kw an hour.

I went for a condenser dryer. Itll take a long time to recoup the £150 extra cost in energy savings. On top of that, heat pumps are reputedly less reliable.
If ordering the 8000model from JL (to get the 2 year warranty) you can get another £12 off by asking them to price match Hughes. Worth keeping an eye to see if that discount changes... it was £25 off when I ordered mine a fortnight back and seems to fluctuate

Same but in black and its been great for us. Used daily for 3-4yrs and its spot on
Thanks buddy. Just submitted JL price match request (retrospectively). Hope they will accept that Hughes 12£ discount voucher is available to everyone

Thanks mate. I was about to order from JL but saw your message and have now requested for price match. Let’s see what they say. Cheers

JL confirmed to price match it to 197 but price on JL has gone up to 259.99 but since I have the confirmation of price match to 197, I have ordered anyway :). If anyone is still looking then be quick as it’s still 209 on Hughes.

50% increase in a matter of weeks on a Dyer is absolutely terrible. However the increase on your grandfathers house is good.

Its not worth it if the Heat Pump version costs something like £600+ , but as they have come down in price they are looking more worth it. Some figures suggest it would cost you £30 per year compared to £100 to run. So in 3 years you have saved £210 , even more if you do a lot of drying. There is more to go wrong, but potentially its worth it, especially worth looking if it comes with 2yrs+ parts and labour.
Thanks. Just got it via the ebay store with the 20% off and free delivery.
