Very good price for heat pump condenser dryer. Very energy efficient.
I had an AEG heatpump condenser dryer. The humidity in our laundry emitted by this dryer was considerable. It was a nightmare to get all the fluff off the condenser vanes to keep it efficient and the bearing on the main blower failed just outside warranty. The blower is £151 to replace currently (if you fit it yourself) which is more than the price of a cheapo vented dryer. I'd buy one again if they had significantly improved cleaning and maintenance but I'd want a 10 year parts and labour warranty and an extractor fan which would probably negate some of a the energy efficiency savings.

The best A rated tumble dryer I had was a White Knight with an 8 hour overnight cold dry setting. The problem with that was the increased run time eventually led to a failed drum bearing. Wish I'd just fixed it as they don't make it anymore but I gave it to a friend and bought the AEG.
This unit is made for JL by Electrolux. Was looking at this 2 weeks ago and was personally put off by this.

Puts me off too!

Never again.

Second heat pump drier I have had. First AEG model lasted 6.5 years. I do not dry clothes any other way as I am disabled and can't stand long, and now cannot reach up to hang clothes on a line, therefore I need it to be cheap as possible to run.

I now have the JLDTH17 model (8kg capacity), it is now 18 months old, and while expensive it is fantastically economical, although one reason it has been SO cheap to run is because it wasn't working for so long!

Repairs via the AEG/Electrolux/Zanussi "Serviceforce" network has been a genuine first grade nightmare which John Lewis have been unable to speed up, or even get them to attend according to their own claims - Electrolux simply do not care (see their customer service reviews!) however JL have compensated me very significantly for the TEN WEEKS it was out of action and various other problems they caused (such as the filthy internal condition when it was returned)

Won't be buying ANYTHING AEG/Elexctrolux/Zanussi or their re-branded JL models ever again because the service from Electrolux/Serviceforce is so bad - regardless of how reliable their machines are, (and generally they are OK) but if it goes wrong, you WILL have problems from them, and be faced with wasting days to weeks hanging around while they fail to attend, with wet washing draped everywhere.
