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

Other
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.

Negative

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

Very cheap for a heat pump drier, they do save money but it would have taken 20 years to recover the initial £900 cost when I last calculated it. Happy with our Beko washing machine. Our hotpoint condensing dryer, a replacement for one of the flammable models no longer fully dries clothes, just gets close and stops no matter what cycle it's on. I've cleaned the metal sensor strip but figure I'll have to call hotpoint out. How many months for them to attend given they're probably still busy preventing fires?

I was told by engineer that came to fix my dishwasher, that the concept of these is great but they take ages to set the clothes, like literally 4-5 hours. No experience myself and perhaps he was exaggerating so would be interested to hear any other people's experiences

Be careful with that word "engineer", bit like your mechanic complaining about computers on cars, just because he cannot be bothered to go back to school to learn how to deal with them. You don't complain about the 60 mile to the gallon you get

The "Heat pump" is where this dryer gets its heat , old fashion type use a great big electrical heater element, some use gas.
A "heat pump" is basically just like a refrigerator but in reverse - it uses "refrigerant" and a pump to raise and lower the pressure, Increase pressure = increase temperature.

This is a very efficient way of taking heat out of the air to create higher temperatures.
Admittedly, there are more parts to go wrong, but refrigerators have been around for 100 years, the've got this technology nailed.

the 4-5 hours sounds like 'night mode'

​hi, we had one of these heat pump beko dryer, takes ages to dry and it was broken within 3 years, I paid nearly £500. total waste of money, now I have basic hotpoint without sensor drying cost me under £200 and dry cloths in half the time if not less than the heat pump one. thanks

I have recently bought a Beko DHR 73431W 7kg load heat pump tumble dryer from AO for about £350. It replaces an old Bosch dryer. I was happy to risk the longer drying times for better economy (A++ rating).

So far, it's been good over the last couple of months. I can't comment on reliability, although Which? seem to give them quite a high rating for tumble dryers.

We try to line dry family clothes where possible, in which case, the 'Dark Sky' weather phone app is very useful.

Your £200 hotpoint or not? which is yours

8 Year Cost (purchase price + 6 cycles per week)
Hotpoint TVM570P £1,433.83
Hotpoint TCFS83BGG £1,712.87
Hotpoint TCFS83BGP £1,732.87
Hotpoint TVFS83CGG £1,742.91
Hotpoint TVFS83CGP £1,742.91

Hotpoint TCM580 £1,891.63
Hotpoint SUTCD 97B 6PM £1,934.96
Hotpoint SUTCD 97B 6KM £1,942.96

You could have bought up to three of the above with the savings.
The point is that purchase price is only a fraction of the cost.

You forgot to mention the part where it costs an arm and a leg to run.

Thanks.

The only thing hot about this deal might be your house, when it catches fire...

I have a condensor pump Zanussi dryer. It took a little getting used to but works brilliantly.......

Just thought I would add my tupence worth.

I bought this dryer a couple of weeks ago and it is absolutely brilliant. Faster than my one year old B rated hotpoint condenser. It is also quieter and it uses less electricity. Condensor cost me 68p per load, this beauty is costing me 19p per load. Yep do the maths. It only has a one year warrant from Beko but I upgraded to a 4 year warranty for £84/ £4 per month. All in all a fantastic dryer.

Nice find OP!
