I know this is not for everyone and is hardly the season but this is a great price for a heat pump dryer with pretty decent reviews from John Lewis. A+ energy rating

Heat pump dryers are the latest innovation in tumble dryer design. A form of condenser dryer, heat pump dryers are more energy efficient.





Hot, humid air from the dryer is passed through a heat pump for re-use, conserving much of its heat and using up to 50% less energy.

Preventing over-drying – a sensor identifies the level of moisture in the drum and automatically stops the cycle when the optimal dryness is achieved. Save time and money, and ensure laundry benefits from better care and protection.

Heat pumps save energy...,

but are more complex internally and far more to go wrong with time - repairs more expensive too, and take longer to dry your clothes.

so yes, this is a great deal at this price.

the Equivalent non-heat pump equivalent will dry quicker, costs less to buy, more to run, less to repair if things go wrong.

your choice!
Can’t complain about my heat pump drier. Sure they’re not as fast as the more conventional driers, but the cost saving is significant. I have mine in the shed as no ventilation is required, the water collects in the door and you simply empty out once collected. Suits my needs perfectly

Have any of those moaning about heat pump on this thread actually used it for significant amount of time. I have used gas vented dryers, the clothes come out harder. These heat pump ones are great, clothes come out soft and fluffy. Have been using non vented heat pump dryer for 3.5y. never going back to anything else! Ignore the clueless whiners on this thread and go for one. Yes you can use the water produced for indoor plants. No issues for 3.5y. even if it broke down tomorrow I would still buy another heat pump without batting an eyelid.

Well, there's no real point getting vented ones anymore, normal condensing ones are around the same price and they heat the room up too and you can put them anywhere there is a power point.
Heat pump ones are just more efficient condensers but you need to weigh this up against greater initial cost and possibly more to go wrong with them. So a lot will depend on how much you will use it, eg only 1 or 2 loads in the winter, or every single load year round.
Another alternative is just a washing line in the dryer months or an airer and a dehumidifier in the winter. I use a dessicant dehumidifier which will dry a load of washing in 2 to 4 hours and use around 1 to 2 kwh whilst keeping room humidity at a decent level and also providing a bit of heat. Doesn't destroy your clothes either.

good to know, I always thought heat pumps were better because the water/vapour is pumped straight out rather than the extra cost/energy in condensing it back to water, at least that's how I picture it.

If anything heat pumps are a hassle as you have to have a hole/exhaust to pump out to!

No that’s the beauty of them. Mine collects in he door. I assume this will too or have another place it collects the water and then simply poor away. You can attach a small drain pipe (rubber hose) bit really there’s no need.

Mine is great, costs less than half to run than my vented and the water collected is recycled on my plants

Very tempting, between this and the logik at curry's for me (business.currys.co.uk/cat…ory). What warranty do John Lewis offer nowadays?

EDIT: The Logik one is slightly more efficient with a bigger drum, but this one has a drain hose which I'd much prefer as I can dump it where the current vented one goes.

Heat pump dryers are kinder to your clothes and safer too as they're less likely to catch fire as they don't contain an element ( hybrid ones do ) . It's when lint comes into contact with the element that has plagued condenser dryers.

My Beko heat pump dryer dries a full load in around 2 hours, It's been used daily in the winter months for the last 2 years without fault.
Great deal, had one of these about three years. Doesn't seem to take any longer to dry stuff than our old condenser. Works a treat and cheaper to run

Personally I am not sure if it is a good idea to base it on the drain hose. I would say go for the more efficient option as it will save you money. Emptying the water isn't as bad as it sounds and you can always recycle it on your plants.
I've still got my WK Vented which is 12 years old, I wouldnt touch these or condenser ones. We use them in work and the clothes either come out slightly damp or take 3-4 hours to dry!!
Great price if youre after one though

About 1 in 10 post on heat pump dryers say similar, but when 90% are positive I always wonder what is causing the issue. Going by how heat pumps work I'd guess a cooler working environment? Load size plays a lot on it too, if for work are they industrial sized machines?

I use my ancient vented dryer 4 or 5 times a week, at 3 units less per wash in theory a heat pump should save me at least 75 a year.
Cheers. Just ordered our first ever heat pump machine. Savings a year sold it cf to other variants.
Tumber?
My heat pump dryer is much faster than the old condenser dryer i had.

Yeah, my Bosch heat pump is surprisingly not that slow. It seems to dry more evenly than my old condenser too. I would never buy a non-heat pump again.

Got myself a gas tumble dryer - can’t beat it for running cost.
We have an ASHP & heat pump tumble dryer . Saves us a small fortune !! One thing I would say is go for the biggest drum possible as we have found the higher the drum the quicker the drying time .

Our last Beko lasted 12 years and had a hard life ! Only thing I had todo occasionally was reset the heating element in the back ( small reset button ).

We have a Sharp heat pump & truthfully it seems quicker than the condenser dryer. Much quieter too .

Heat pumps tumble drier can either have a drawer like a condenser or can be plumbed into house waste pipe
Had a Beko heat pump dryer for around 8 years now only issue I had was the drive belt came loose so clothes wasn't drying easily fixed.
I've had a Candy heat pump dryer for the last 2 years. It's good but it caused a condensation problem in the conservatory so it's now in the garage where it works fine.

Great summary. They seems to be about 50% cheaper to run than condenser tumble dryers (£35 v £70 per year) but they seem to take twice the length of drying time. We bought a new dryer this year and went condenser as on days we use the tumble drier we typically do 2-4 loads in a row. I ignore the repair cost as at this price it will definitely be cheaper to buy new than repair unless you can do it yourself.
Happy with ours. Don't put too big of a load & use the dry plus plus setting. Wife always wants to put it on for an extra half hour but she overfills it in my opinion. Easy to empty & clean filters. Lives in a big cupboard.
I've got a Samsung heat pump tumble dryer. The bugger cost £500 at the time and seems to need cleaned every 5 minutes. The heat exchanger is so hard to clean that the only thing that seems to work to dry it out and turn off the warning lights is running a fan heater into it, probably undoing whatever environmental good we had aimed for

Mine arrived today, very happy so far. Word of warning that due to coronavirus the JL social distancing policy is doorstep delivery which for me almost meant on the outside til I asked niceley to use his trolley to get it up and onto the door step.
Thanks a lot the other half kept nagging me for a new dryer. Was waiting for the right deal and this had me absolutely sold.

Never been so excited for such an appliance :O can't wait to throw my pants in it.
Shame the warranty on this is only 1yr. My last Beko condenser dryer which I bought 2yrs ago only lasted more than a year before it broke, but luckily I had the sense to buy an extended warranty from Very who replaced it with a like for like model.

We’ve got a Samsung but not had similar. It could be a fault?
worth trying to sort it while under warranty. Their customer service is pretty decent.
269 for a heat pump is incredible value. Unless they've radically reduced in price over the last 5 years...
