This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Just seen this on the Currys website, seems like a good price for a 10Kg load capacity tumble dryer and it's a heat pump model.

Considering the 8Kg is £330, and the 9Kg is £430, this seems like really good value.

Why do people spread this myth on this site? I have had two Heat Pump dryers after many conventional dryers over decades before that, and speed is pretty much indistinguishable. My current heat pump dryer dries a full 8kg load eg. towels in 1hr 39m (99 minutes) according to the display, but in practice usually finishes several minutes quicker than this. They come out bone dry.

I can also vouch for this, Bosch 9KG of towels displays 3 hours on the display but once it gets going and the sensor detects the humidity left the time does go down quicker than it first displayed, just remember don't open the door until its finished (as that can add another 30 minutes every time) and they work fine.

I've had two & they've both been considerably slower than previous standard condensers.... that's been my experience - take it or leave it... I use a heat pump as only two of us & in no hurry. If I had a large family it would def be an issue
yes they take longer but they dry at a lower heat i wouldn't go back to a normal dryer
I have opted for the A++ rated BEKO DHY7340W from co-op electrical @ £310 (after code) and added a 3 yr warranty @ £38. Delivering this saturday.
Uhm.. anyone else using the dry buddy?

Would you mind sharing what manufacturer/model these were please? I have a Candy heat pump dryer and you could probably dry towels quicker by hanging them inside.

Both Aeg, current one is John Lewis own label, but all made by AEG. When they work... fantastic, but unfortunately the AEG service network "Serviceforce" are horrendous, so if they bust it's a nightmare!

Well I don’t know the definitive answer but relevant is the fact that this month Which tested two Beko tumble dryers, one condenser and the other heat pump. The later took longer to dry.

The heat pump machine was also more expensive but, they say, in a couple of years you would get the difference back becase it was much cheaper to run.

Models were DTBC1001 and DTBP9001W, verdict for both was “Best Buy”.

One is also a 9Kg machine and the other machine a 10Kg! The clue is in the model numbers

Does anyone have their heat pump tumble dryer outside in garage? How's the condensation on the machine for you?

During the cold snap, ours was dripping water from the gaps in the front side of the dryer, sent it back regardless as it was first and last time we buy Candy. Also took 3-4 cycles to "dry" half a load with one bath towel and one hoodie amongst other items.

I get what people are saying about energy saved but if you're gonna use 3-4 cycles to get something dry, which takes 6+hours then I really don't see the point...

Also they still weren't dried evenly after so many cycles..

Either the brand is shoddy, or the technology is just too much hassle. Thinking going back to condenser.

I'm sure everything I have read says NOT to put a heat pump dryer in a garage or out building. They don't like temps less than 5 degrees.

Ok.

Now that the cold snap is over and it's been over 5C during the day, I tested my heat pump dryer before it's collected and it still takes 3-4 cycles to dry straight from Washing machine. It's uneven drying with duvet covers and bed sheets having patches.

So for those of us that does not have the space or utility room to house a dryer indoors, what alternatives are there to having a tumble dryer other than condenser or vented? Given that vented you have to have ducting extract outside or into one of those venting drain boxes 50/50 says it works
Edit: garage is 7C on the temp probe gun at the moment... Quick google says vented is best for garage. So much for energy saving..

Yes, nor above 35, which can happen in an uninsulated garage even when it is several degrees lower outside or indoors.

In which case, it wasn't Hotpoint nor indesit fault for causing the fires but customers who didn't read the manuals or heed the words of said range 5C to 35C.
Oh shucks.



Eta: sarcasm if you didn't realize... Yes the case was more to do with vented dryers, mechanical faults and people not cleaning out the lint.

You later said your dryers were AEG, rebranded or not. How does this have any relations to this Beko brand? The clue is in the name.

Even Which? state that "It’s not unusual to see a heat-pump dryer take an extra 10 minutes per kg of clothes in comparison with a vented or condenser dryer – that’s more than an hour per load for a 7kg capacity dryer"

So to answer your initial question, I and others on HUKD, have experienced longer cycles and they do not come out bone dry.

In any case, I'll take your advice with a pinch of salt because of the manner you present it so matter of factly.

I had a John Lewis one a couple of years back and it was awful. wouldn't dry anything properly, all the clothes were damp after hours of being in it, got my money back and went back to a vented dryer which is superb and clothes are bone dry within an hour.
