Hotpoint is made in UK and is much better choice for only £186.09 inc delivery (unbetable price, next cheapest is £229). Create new account (new email) on very website and use code 6GRRX for 10% off. If you use quidco 7% the price you paid will be £173,60.

Sorry link didn't work for some reason. Just go to very.co.uk and search Hotpoint TCFS73BGP

Nearly 70 bought in the last 48h.

I bought this exact same model from Argos 10 days ago from my local store at this price and its still this price in store today with free delivery if you don't want to do it through Ebay Argos you can do it direct with the store.
I have used it quite a lot since getting and am really please with it so I can recommend it.
looks nice

as this is a tumble dryer thread, I hope nobody minds me dropping this here..

please check the serial number of your dryer if it is a hotpoint, indesit or creda, as a report came out yesterday stating there is a fire risk on models sold in the last 11 years

bbc.co.uk/new…765 there's a link halfway through the article to check your machine

Thanks, checked mine before and its on the list. Its the fibers left over from the drying tat are setting on fire so make sure you clean the filters regularly.
The Hotpoint referred to by kris1234 can handle only a 7kg load, so not really a direct comparison.

Good price for this one and I was tempted as we bought a 9kg washing machine and our existing 7kg tumble dryer can't handle a full load. Downside is that there's no reverse tumble, so clothes will be more likely to crease when you take them out.

It's amazingly hard to create a 9kg load, I've yet to hit the limit on mine.
A quick question for tumble dryer owners. Can one keep it in a garage where the temperatures might get quite low without any impact to the machine?

We keep ours in our outhouse which in not heated and we have never had a problem, however I will state the obvious and say that a condenser machine like this (and ours) will hold water in both the tank and some of the internal pipes. This in short means that if you do not empty the water out of the machine it will be liable to freeze in the winter and this could crack the tank and/or the pipes as well as causing damage to the condenser unit. To ensure the pipes are clear of water and the condenser unit is dry it is a good idea to run the machine empty for 5-10 mins.
Which one would people recommend this or a vented?
Don't buy it better ones coming up black Friday by other retails

I checked both my Hotpoint and my mums Indesit tumble dryers last night on the recall site here and both are affected. I had to register them and now awating an engineer to fix them. God know how long that will be .

​i wouldn't recommend either, to be honest. Vented dryers are very inefficient and, despite being condensing, this one has a poor energy rating. B doesn't really cut it these days and will be a lot more expensive to run than a more efficient model.

Should be fine, unless it gets down to below 5 degrees in there and you try using a condenser dryer like this one. From the bottom of the Argos link (and I've seen the same info elsewhere, I've been eying up dryers for a couple of weeks):
"If this appliance is installed in an unheated, cold room (for example: conservatory, annex, shed or garage) the optimum ambient storage temperature must be 5°C or above. If placed below this temperature the appliance performance will be considerably affected and in some instances may not operate at all until the ambient temperature rises above 5°C."
Makes sense really, condensation is dependant on temperature! A vented dryer would be fine.

Can you even get A rated rumble driers though? There used to be some available but they only achieved this by taking about 8 hours to dry your washing, presumably just by blowing air on it.

Yes, you can get full green label A+++ models if you like. Above this B model there are 4 energy grades, A, A+, A++ and A+++ l

B is about as rubbish as it gets these days, hence cheap dryer but high running costs.

I have never seen an A+++ one but found an A++ for £500. Of course the big question is, how much would you have to use a more economical tumble drier for it to pay back the investment? If you could get an A+++ for the same price as a B then it is a no brainer, but when you are talking hundreds more, you have to work out how much you use it and how many years it would have to last. For some people, that means buy the cheaper, less efficient model.

​I agree with that reasoning, it's a bit like paying another £2000 on a diesel car to get an extra 15mpg when you only do 10000 miles a year and it takes 5 years to break even, it's great to have a very economic tumble dryer, but unless you get a great deal, it will take you years to get the saving back.

You obviously don't pay much attention to the news. (_;)

Anyway, Hotpoint closed its UK plants several years ago, most machines are now made in Poland.

Thank you for this! Just discovered that mine is one of the affected models. oO

Hopefully, this image will work now. It's a photo of the eco labels from my A+++ washers and dryer, just for reference. Dryer is on the left.

http://webmail.jaffacake.net/miele.jpg

B rating looks a long way down the list these days. Used to be pale green when these ratings first came out. Typical running costs shown on the label, a great way to compare machines.

The Candy dryer in this deal claims the following:

Edited by: "ro53ben" 25th Nov 2015
Working out those number a bit further, this Candy model uses 617kWh per year for 220 loads - that's £86.38 each year based on 14pence per kWh of electricity - 40 pence per wash load. Amazing that you're going to spend half the purchase cost on electricity each year.

In contrast, my A+++ machine will use 192kWh per year, or £27.02 in electricity - 12 pence per wash load. That's a bigger saving than even I expected, I bought the product mainly based on features and brand reputation.

Assuming you expect a product like this to last 10+ years, the electricity running cost for the Candy over 10 years is £593.60 more than the A+++ appliance. That's also assuming the Candy lasts that long and wouldn't need to be repaired/replaced.

It's clear to me that an green rated appliance costing around £800 is likely better value than a cheap one like this.

If, like us, you use it occasionally, then you might as well throw the eco thing in the air.

Yes, you can pay twice as much and get one that costs half as much to run.

This is an excellent dryer. I bought one last time it turned up on HUKD and it's great. Easy to use etc. and is happy to sit in my garage (no, I had nowhere realistic to vent one, hence why a condenser)

To be clear, you can spend twice as much as cost less than a third to run - that's the point.

Sure, if you only use it very infrequently then it's pointless. I get that. But why buy one at all for such infrequent use?
