I've bought one as I was looking for a vented drier with sensor. Best price I could find

You get 7 level sensor drying programmes to ensure efficient and economical results - by monitoring the amount of water left in the drum, it makes sure your clothes aren't damaged as a result of being over-dried.

Reverse tumble and anti-creasing features keep ironing to a minimum so everything is ready to wear in no time. A buzzer also lets you know when it has finished drying.

A 7 kg capacity is the equivalent of 21 shirts, so you get all the family's clothes dry quickly. There are 10 sensor and 5 timed programmes to choose from, including Cottons, Freshen Up, Synthetics, Delicates, Rapid Dry, Jeans and Shirts.

An accessible filter also ensures quick and easy cleaning and LED progress lights lets you know exactly where you are up to in your cycle.

A large porthole door makes everything is easy to load and unload for maximum convenience.

Looks good to me.



​I bought it to replace my condenser dryer. all reviews say it's excellent so fingers crossed

OOS, but similar price at co-op, if wanted

Thanks for posting. Typical, our vented (AEG Lavatherm) tumble dryer is on the way out, producing heat, tumbling but keeps stopping - call out plus hourly rate and possible repair very expensive and not guaranteed they can identify problem in one visit. So I think it's worth getting it replaced, but not sure whether to stick with AEG or get a different brand.

Op, how are you finding Beko ? Thanks.

C rated for energy...may as well throw five pound notes on the fire.

I bought this model about a year ago, it's much quicker than our old one at drying clothes.
The sensor drying works *most* of the time: occasionally when drying bed linen some will get wrapped up in itself and you'll get a ball of slightly damp sheets. Not a massive issue, would be fixed if I bothered to move the dial round to "Extra Dry", otherwise just running it again works.

I must admit it was a toss up between this and a Bosch when I got it, both were in the same price range with the same features, went for the Beko as their current reliability seems to be better than Bosch (Bosch reviews infer that newer machines are less reliable than old, Beko remains solidly reliable).

I should also add that the end-of-cycle buzzer doesn't stop until you turn it off, it beeps every minute until you do so

You made a good choice. Bosch appliances are nowhere near as reliable as they used to be, not a German marque any more. Beko had their share of troubles back in the day (e.g. appliances catching fire) but they've resolved these and are now in my opinion one of the most reliable brands out there.Have a 4 year old washing machine on at least 5 times a week and haven't had any issue with it yet, touch wood.
Next on my list is a Beko dishwasher to replace my ageing Hotpoint, the reviews on the Bekos at AO.COM are incredibly positive.,

I think the vented dryers tend to be lower rated than condenser ones, but I'm happy to be corrected if you can find a 'A' rated one.

I'm very tempted, but would prefer an 8kg+ as our Samsung washing machine can take up to 11kg load on some washes. Thanks for feedback.

Is there no way you can mute the end of cycle alarm? Thanks for feedback.

Beko do a 9kg as well. Has strong reviews on AO and other websites. Do note I don't work for them - just impressed by the performance of what I currently own.

I'll check out the 9kg, thanks.

I'll also check out the 'library for a recent copy of WHICH magazine' that reviewed tumble dryers (as I posted the question in "ask" section).

Indeed, all vented dryers are an inefficient waste of money. Condensing ones exist for a reason.

Most dryers are inefficient, still better than the 10+ year old one people will typically replace with this.

Thanks. And to think condensing ones existed because people didn't have access to an outside vent. I'm not an expert but can't understand why they can't both be 'A' rated. For me having it vented mean's I don't need to keep emptying the 'water container'. Our previous house owner used to own a gas tumble dryer, but we felt uncomfortable using in case it ignited, even though I'm sure it was perfectly safe.

As fatdeeman said new dryers still better than the 10+ year old ones. Maybe I should change from vented to condenser too.:)

Shows £199 for me?

The energy rating is a measure of efficiency, put simply it's how much energy is will use to dry a standard load of laundry. Rating go from A+++ to G, with A+++ being the best. This dryer has a C rating which means there are 5 grades above it.

1) A+++
2) A++
3) A+
4) A
5) B
6) C

Vented tumble dryers are basically like using a hair dryer on your clothes. They heat air and blow it into the drum as the clothes tumble. The evaporated water (steam) goes out the vent along with a load of hot air. So you're basically heating a load of air and water, only to lose it up the chimney.

A condensing tumble dryer, especially when combined with a heat pump, can be a lot more efficient.

To confuse things further, vented and condensing tumble dryer even use a different energy rating scale. A "C" rated vented dryer is similar to a "B" rated condensing dryer.

In real terms, moving from a "C" rated dryer like this may cost around £100/year to run. The most efficient models cost just £30/yr to run, a saving of £70 each year.

The tech spec of this Beko machine claims a running cost of 514kWh each year for a typical household. My A+++ dryer, by comparison, is rated at just 193kWh/annum.

I use 1.63kWh of electricity for each drying programme - that's about 24p based on 15 pence per unit of electricity.

Compare that to the Beko which uses 4.2kWh per cycle - 63 pence per load. I'm saving 40p on every wash load.

Incidentally, my condensing dryer has a drain hose at the back so you can pump water straight out, instead of into the container. So it never needs emptying.

would this not be a better deal for a few quid more

Yes, but most people on here don't appear to care about running costs...only purchase.

Thanks for very useful detailed advise, particularly that some condenser dryers come with a drain hose.

Yep fully agree. What's the point of sucking off all that heat that's supposed to dry your clothes and pushing it out into the atmosphere!

Indeed, a condensing dryer will release any waste heat into the room, which can be useful if you have any items drying on a rack in the same room which can't be tumble dryed.
