Product information

The Hotpoint TCM580BP Aquarius Condenser Tumble Dryer provides 8 kg of space to dry all of your family's clothes with ease.

Hi-Low heat setting

The optional heat settings of the Hotpoint TCM580BP allow you to choose how your clothes are treated. More delicate garments can be dried on a lower heat setting to protect them, whereas towels and sheets are ideal items for the warmer setting, getting them dry nice and quickly.

Anti-Ageing

On the theme of protecting your clothes, this Aquarius Condenser Dryer also prevents your clothes from aging via the innovative wave design drum, which lifts your clothes, ensuring they are gently floating on warm – preserving their natural softness and colour.

Large capacity water bottle

Hotpoint's new water bottle is much larger so you can get through more loads with less emptying – which means less effort on laundry day.

Anti-tangling technology

The reverse tumble action helps get your clothes dry evenly and without tangling, so they are less creased and easier to iron.

Timed tumbling

With an easy to use timer, the Hotpoint TCM580BP gives you great flexibility. You can dry set a drying cycle anywhere from 2 hours to 20 minutes, to suit the type and dampness of your load.

Consider the Hotpoint TCM580BP Aquarius Condenser Tumble Dryer in white for intuitive and sensible drying for you and your family.

The wife says look out for a new Tumble Dryer and this seems a good deal but, there are lots of cold votes. So why the ' frigidity', am I missing something here? Help; but I'll vote hot just for the posting!

Trying getting something with a sensor, ideally you want a dryer that's using heat pump technology. They are rated A+ and use far less energy.

I have a 9kg acqultis not heat up. But don't use it every day so cost of running a condenser over initial outlay is acceptable.

Here a link to the one I brought from tesco direct for 274 - 100 with boost. So total cash cost 174.

Oh and hotpoint 10 year guarantee is worthless. Its only for parts and only when their engineer fits them at 115£ call out fee.

If you buy an idesit, creda or hotpoint machine they will come with a green sticker on the back. Signifying they are safe and have be modified since the dryer on fire safety recall.

How much more can one learn from a single post.

We've had hotpoint tumble dryers and there certainly not the most reliable, ours was always going wrong and breaking down, through it away in the end but haven't got a replacement as yet.

​I bought it because reviews were very good and for many people it lasted years. I m yet to try so cannot say but reviews in amazon and currys are very good. one can go for Indesit or other brands if higher budget like 250+ but 8 was looking for dryer under £200 and this had best reviews.
Can people please commwnt why they think this deal is cold ? there are overall very good reviews for this item : reviews . condenser dryer with energy rating a++ cannot be compared as they £650+ and this is just £200. please suggest.
Can folks please suggest why you think this deal is cold despite it having overall good reviews (see the deal link) . condenser dryer with energy rating a++ should nit be compared with this as they are very pricey £650+ and this is just £200 with energy rating b which I do nit think is bad . please suggest.
With condenser there are 2 technologies the newer more efficient is heat pump ,even with those it appears there has been a step change in efficiency on some newer models during 2015(rating down from over 300kwh to 230kwh

For overall annual running cost you have to factor how much you will use to get the payback periods.
The numbers on the ECO sheet are based on 160 loads a year(mix of full and1/2)

Probably the best priced/ratings heat pump is the Beko DSX83410(I think a currys special)
seen at £350 230kwh A(91%) rated condensing
(also available as the Grundig in different styling + 5y warranty was £399)

this Hotpoint is 628kwh and C(72%) condensing

So if you do the standard No of drys at £0.14kwh that's £44py and the Hotpoint chuck 3 times as much water into your room.

A 8kg Beko non heatpump DCX83100 560kwh and B rated condensing is £220.

The next leap to higher efficiency heat pump models needs a big jump in price.

Personally I think there are better spec machines around at this price point certainly sensor ones should be a available.
Neutral for me.

thanks for answer. I have decided to return and will do some more research before buying another
What is not clear is the life span of newer tech driers - high initial cost and often short working life make a mockery of cost per dry.
Newer tech heat pumps might be more efficient but dont forget they take much longer to dry stuff which is why they are so efficient. I imagine speed of drying is a key factor to consider.
we have a hotpoint tc71n ultima condenser dryer for the past 18 years.used everyday never called out an anyone perfect .can be connected to the waste so no emptying water tank, fluff filter easy to clean. totally reliable.
