Wait for the Beko brigade...
I can hear them rattling closer & closer...
Looks like the anti Beko group turned up early.
not a beko. cold
why beko?
As much as I rate heat pump dryers - just bought one myself, this is far too expensive. Most people won't know what they are & those who do aren't likely to be swayed by a brand name... Not voted, but IMO not hot...
Crazy price! This is a stonker of a buy! My Miele is about 10 years old (no heat pump), but looks like there is plenty of life in it yet. Would highly recommend.

Expensive? I am struggling to think what alternative Heat Pump dryer there is with A++ rating and a 5 year warranty for £530 quid.

I am lumbered with an unreliable AGE/Electrolux-made JL branded one which was more than this 18 months ago. (Never again!)

Currently a Bosch with measly 2 year warranty is about 430 quid, and with most brands these days (Miele included!) you need the warranty as they just don't last now, and this type NEEDS to last to get your money's worth compared to a standard type!
Quidco are also offerring 5% on all Miele products for the next 5 days.
Looking into this you'd need to keep this about 11 years to pay off any saving. Heat pump dryer costs about £23 per year to run in elec vs about £59 for a good rated condenser (£200-£300).

Plus there's more to go wrong with these due to the exchange. Lack of common parts and compatibles also means may be more expensive to fix.
Nice one. Good timing as one was needed.

Not done the calculations for some time, as I am on to my second Heat Pump drier, the first lasted nearly 7 years, and back then for my usage I was at break even point in the middle of the third year, with costs being a bit higher for machines and electricity being much higher, it might be a bit adrift now, (although machines are a bit more efficient than my original HP Dryer) but can't see the figures being very different now, I can't be bothered to work it out for the reasons below, but of course it needs thinking about.

If you use a dryer for two days in the middle of winter it is a silly option, but if like me you use it all year and a LOT, say easily ten full loads in a typical week then it is very much the right option. I am disabled and couldn't hang a shirt on a line now if my life depended on it, so this is the ONLY option for me, servants cost much more! ;-)

Not to mention the lower temperatures compared to a standard dyer really DO cut the need for ironing, which for me is an even bigger benefit.

Is ANY machine worth fixing now once out of the warranty period? Labour costs are silly never mind parts.

Bought a German Blomberg for £430 inc VAT with a 3 year warranty. Huge capacity, great features, A+++ rating... That's 20% less than this Miele... But your money, your choice... Cold for me in terms of VFM

2 years hoping it doesn't go bang for the (actually nearer to) 19% saving.

19% cheaper means losing 40% of the warranty though, and it is true they ARE more expensive to repair.

Its always a gamble, deciding what gear to buy, but must admit I wouldn't be backing Blomberg as a brand over Miele either, even though I am not carried away by the mythical Miele reliability these days.

You pay your money and take your chance.

My crappy AEG built machine is German too, btw.

Wait for those who think £530 for a drier is a good deal and believe this will last 20 years when Miele will only put their money where their mouth is for 5 years. These people believe technology and efficiency will not improve in 20 years and it is worth while using a 20 year old device.

I have a 18 year old Bosch only because a dryer is the last resort. An indoor cloths drier first and if not dry use the dryer. May be 1 hours a month, if that! It's all about efficiency and washing in advance.

I've just bought this... Anybody recommend anything better (better value for money, I mean...)?
Our old Bosch (class B energy rating) is approaching 8 years old but still working fine. Have been talking about replacing it when a bargain pops up - 5 years warranty and reduced power consumption fits the bill. Thanks OP!

10% for MIELE10 = £70
5% quidco = £31.50
£100 Miele cashback

Work out how many hours a month you use it for and calculate the payback time compared to a lower cost less efficient machine. If over 5 years then you run the risk of losing if this 5 year warranty machine breaks down.

A lot of it is risk of breaking down. But it all depends on usage.

You must be talking fridge-freezers. Yes, they are the only ones guaranteed to work down to -15c ambient.

Agree with you about the guarantee. Bought a Bosch dishwasher from John Lewis and 10 months later,
the heat pump went. Thankfully covered by warranty or would have cost £99 (part)+ £100 (labour).
Can't trust even the brand names that are regarded really good.

You are so right
Under £500 after Quidco & Cashback - bonkers price!
that price seems very high given the energy savings. would be surprised if you break even during the life of the machine.

Daft comment. Android is an open operating system that runs on hundreds of different manufacturers / tens of thousands of different device combinations, not a hardware manufacturer. Apple is a company whose operating systems run on a very small numbers of closely managed hardware devices. How does your analogy compare to Beko & Miele machines? I own Miele, Apple and Android devices and don't understand what you're on about.

Miele still closely manage their manufacturing and supply chain. In the world of washers, they do not have sealed drums like the others.

Many other appliance manufacturers have taken to being assembley agents for various parts manufacturers without so much attention.

I agree it it's not a direct comparison but it's as close as you'll get in the appliance world of manufacturer behaviour versus smart mobile phones - best thing not to compare them at all though.

Back to the deal - voted hot for the model and price!

My Miele dryer is still working well after 8 years (warranty was 5 years). it was doing something strange at the 6 year mark when proofing my sportswear and Miele fixed it for free with a software update even though it was out of warranty.
