Vented (8kg), Hoover Tumble dryer (new but graded) for £119.99 @ Appliance Universe

Found 21st Nov 2015
This might be a slightly obscure post but I have been going mad with lots of searching online for the 'right' tumble dryer. I wanted to share this amazing deal - for those of you looking for large capacity vented tumble dryers. (Vented dryers might not suit everyone but are ideal for us as we have access to an outside vent).

The deal is for an 8kg vented dryer by Hoover and it includes free delivery. The products are graded which means they are new but might be a bit dented and/or scratched or neither! It is pot luck but at such a good price, would it matter?
When researching, I looked at second hand prices but thought it was too risky to buy something that would need repairs sooner rather than later...and for a little bit more at least newer products come with a warranty!
Although I was super tempted by this product, we paid a little extra and bought a 9kg vented Candy from the Coop electrical site...the extra capacity was really important to us as we have young kids and are constantly washing and struggling with drying!
Hope the above deal helps someone out!

Thanks for posting. I’ve added the merchant to the title.
Here’s a ‘Help’ link which gives tips and advice on thread posting.

Thank you Mod!
Does it have a year warranty?
I am pretty sure I when I spoke to the company they said it came with a one year warranty but please do contact them yourself for confirmation. It's a shame the website does not give this info!
Year warranty says so on the website if you look folks
Sorry. That's for new items
Has anyone ordered from this site before? Thanks
Out of interest which model and price did you buy, we also struggle to dry clothes with three dirty kids always keeping the washer on!
There definition of graded: "

Minor cosmetic damage (nothing which will affect the operation or warranty).

- Damaged packaging.

- End of line."
Great price for an 8kg tumble dryer! Vented dryers are more efficient anyway, unfortunately I had to buy a condenser due to lack of space.
I did phone up this company last week...I wanted to know if they were taking stock of any 9kg vented dryers but nothing was coming into their store that met our needs.
In the end after agonising over 1kg (8kg or 9kg), we went for a 9kg and bought a Candy vented dryer from cooperative electrical. I used the code STAR10 to get £10 off and with free delivery we had it with us the following day - yesterday.
Pleased with it...it's currently drying its 4th load!
Forgot to add when I spoke to Appliance Universe about the Hoover dryers, they told me the damage was superficial - small dents and/or scratches but it in no way affected the performance of the dryer. It was definitely under a warranty but I just can't remember the finer details. Posting it on here was done on a whim, really!

Forgive my ignorance, I am not being critical , but how are vented ones more efficient?
Taken from Which? website...

Is a condenser dryer better than a vented one? Condenser dryers collect moisture from wet clothes in a water reservoir, which you must empty when it is full. Vented dryers simply expel the moist air from the room through a hose. Condenser dryers are usually seen as more convenient as you don't have to place them near a wall vent or hang a hose out of a window. However, they're more expensive to buy than vented machines and use more electricity.

There's a big difference between being critical and merely asking a question

From here: http://www.whitegoodshelp.co.uk/tumble-dryer-buying-advice/

Vented dryers are cheaper, they are also simpler, more reliable and mostly more economical to run*. According to Which? “on average, vented tumble dryers use about a fifth less energy than condenser dryers to dry a full load of cottons.” *NOTE: this is no longer strictly true, see “super energy efficient tumble dryers with heat pumps” section below.

Condenser dryers have been around a long time now and manufacturers seem to be putting most of their efforts into developing them rather than the vented type which have probably stopped evolving now. Some condensers now have large heat pumps (which look like a fridge compressor) that recycle otherwise lost heat and are said to much cheaper to run. It’s no longer accurate to say vented dryers are always cheaper to run because a few of these condensers are remarkably cheap to run now (the lowest I’ve heard of so far has quoted costs of only £37 a year* – Panasonic NH-P80G1).

However, the downside to the “highly efficient condenser dryers” with heat pumps is greatly increased drying times and greatly increased purchase costs. Therefore you need to think about how long it would take to get the extra purchase costs back in reduced running costs. I know of one example where Which? say it could be up to 7 years. Check out the energy labels before deciding whether any particular dryer is more, or less energy efficient.


It seems the margins between the two types are getting narrower these days, is the TL;DR answer, so I've learnt something today myself.

*Not sure how old the quotes above are, as the AEG T75280AC condenser dryer I have (about three years old), is rated at £26.88 a year on average!
NO vented tumble dryer is worth anything unless you can actually VENT it outside and can keep the vent hose clean.

Otherwise the house will be full of fluff and dripping from condensation.

9kg condensor dryer, great deal
Please avoid. 5 weeks ago had a really bad experience with this company. I bought because the produce was £40 cheaper than buying brand new but it didn't work properly when it arrived. I was told by the company that I should contact the manufacturer and claim off the warranty. Why it was only an hour old! It was dented and came with no intstructions, screws, feet to mount the kitchen door etc. It was an integrated tumble dryer. I read up about my consumer rights and called the company to say I was not happy about having to call an engineer out to get the item fixed and eventually after a hard battle I got them to agree a refund. I was in the area the following day and returned the item direct. Warehouse has massive amounts of stock and all dented etc. Not a good impression. The overall manager is out in Cyprus. Good luck! Has anyone read the google reviews of the company. I suggest you do. Apparently they know they have negative reviews and are trying to turn the company around! It may take some time. My advice buy from a reputable company as this is a complete false economy.
ive been looking to buy a graded tumble dryer as its hoing in a cupboard, any better sites about
I received my order a couple of days ago,not the model i initially ordered, no packaging, casing is severely dented and scraped, was going to sign for it as recieved damaged but the courier told me to reject delivery,which i did, company are reluctant to refund saying that is what to expect from a graded product, so unless you can view the item in the flesh i wouldn't buy
