Sensor drying

Prevent clothes from over drying and protect delicate fabrics thanks to the GTN38250HGCW's intelligent sensor drying. Simply set the level of dryness you need for your laundry and the tumble dryer will automatically identify the levels of moisture in the drum and stop the machine when the desired level has been reached.

Easy to use

The GTN38250HGCW's clear LCD display with touch controls is straightforward and easy to use. Select your program and the indicators will show you the time remaining during each cycle and the start of the delay timer. As a result, you can enjoy complete control over your laundry and schedule.

Useful functions

For complete versatility, the Grundig tumble dryer features 16 drying programs and three temperatures. The Anti-creasing function rotates the drum every 60 seconds for up to two hours after the cycle has finished. By keeping the laundry moving it helps clothes stay crease-free so you can cut down on ironing.

Auto cool down

Thanks to the GTN38250HGCW's auto cool down feature, you can comfortably unload your laundry once the cycle has finished. The cool down phase blows cool air into the drum just before the cycle ends to ensure clothes are cool to the touch.

Grundig still around

Grundig still around


The rights to use their brand name have long since been sold off by Philips (who own Grundig) and with white goods like this a Turkish company called Arcelik (don't laugh!) make the products.

Arcelik isn't a well known name but they make Beko, Blomberg and other names

My Panasonic american style fridge freezer is also made by Arcelik and so far it's been fine but was a little disapointed when I found out it came from the same place Beko's are made

It's worth doing the maths on these heat pump dryers. For this one, which is cheap, if you average three loads of drying per week it'd only become cheaper than a traditional vented dryer towards the end of the 5th year. For the more expensive heat pump dryers (£700+) you either need to do a huge amount of drying or, hope it lasts 10 years + for them to be economic, such is their initial cost vs a vented/condensing dryer.
Scorpion are you assuming energy costs won’t go up in your logic?
I got this about 6 months ago. It’s good enough, looks nice, wide range of options, easy enough to get rid of the fluff. One negative is that it auto senses, whether you like it or not. Which means I often have to re-do the dry cycle...and keep having to check it hasn’t switched itself off assuming it’s dried everything.
super hot - nice one. bought! have had my eye on this since november!

You say that as though it's a bad thing! If all else is equal I'd rather have the BEKO brand in my kitchen than a Grundig from Curry's.........................but if it was cheaper I could be persuaded!
Wouldn't this be the equivalent Beko model @ £379.99, which also isn't a Which? best buy.

The Beko best buy is A+++ energy rated.

yes my mum bought one of these and said the exact same thing it turns its self off leaving clothes slightly damp and then has to put it on again to get things dry as she likes but said was not a problem.
also one thing the salesman spun on her it was german made.
when by reading posts above its german design and turkish built by the looks of it if all posts are true.
personally i would never buy one of these.
stick with a condensor till tech is proved and price reduces down.

We have had one of these for over a year now and it is use every day.
The Condensate pump failed a couple of months back, Grundig sorted the local repair company without fuss and was repaired within 4days.
I bought one of these from Currys. The same problem as everyone else it switches off thinking the clothes are dry. I use cycle 9 which is a manual one and you choose the time to dry stuff. So far I haven't noticed it switching off.
I was slightly disappointed as I replaced my broken vented dryer that was 16 years old. Used to take around 50 mins to dry stuff but this takes over 2 hours. I was also told it was German built.
Does it need plumbing for water and waste pipes? Thinking to put in garage as a freestanding unit however I only have electric supply there.
I bought this product on Wednesday, anyone know if it's worth trying my luck to see if they'll discount it being within 14 days of purchase?

No. Standalone - all you do is empty the water from condenser tray after each run.

My Beko is now it’s 7th year and it still going strong. Never gets too hot to shrink fabrics .
very recommended

they lied
And the service for warranty is just appalling with automated emails:

Starts off with one of our reps will contact you within 24hrs then the problem is more serious so please allow more time - this goes on for weeks!!!

I'm sure I've read that hear pump dryers won't work in cold temperatures.

It'll probably have a tank.

Looks good but that one is £60 more and only comes with a 2 year warranty. The Grundig does seem good value with a 5 year warranty, would be interested in any opinions for owners...
I bought one from Currys eBay store when there was the 20% off ebay deal, got it for £324.99

So far am quite pleased with it, haven't yet had an issues with the auto sensor function and everything has come out dry.

Feels like a good build quality too.
Thanks CurleyFurley, will give it a go
got one 2 years ago

If you use the right settings it dries with sensor fine.

best with a decent washer that has an efficient spin to reduce the drying cycle times.

ours is an attached garage that gets copd and has been working fine into its second winter.

The annual kwh rating are based on 160cycles this is still rated at 230kwh.
(there are better out there the Heatpump tech has been improved.)

a good condenser/vented will be around 550kwh for an 8kg machine.

that's about £40py saving

check the condenser ratings you want A/90% or better.

when I bought the closest beko equivelant seemed to be dsx8341.

currys.co.uk/gbu…159
Is there any compromise on dryer results for integrated dryers with washing machine.

If not, does anyone have recommendations for washing machines available with Heat Pump Tumble Dryer.
Make sure you clean the condenser filter regularly. You only get 3 with the machine and if they get too clogged are a pain to clean.

probably worth giving the condenser a vacuum once a year.
Is a heat pump tumble drier just the same as a condenser drier. I’m a bit of confused as to what tumble drier is best?
Theres me going to buy it because i seen german name Grundig- only to find out its not German at all anymore- them stinkn Turks make these, wont be the same quality

Re badged as beko- yes i dont trust them if made in turkey-
Had a beko before and it was rubbish washing machine

bought a Samsung washing machine- Cant complain about it-
Will look for tumble dryer to match

A heat pump dryer is a more efficient condenser dryer. They use much less energy to dry a load. But they cost more.
