- Heat pump tumble dryer anyone?
Yeah we do. Beko Dry&Save (DPU 8360 W) 8kg load, A rated.
I really rate it. Expensive up front but I did the sums and reckoned it would pay off the difference compared to a “normal” drier in two to three years.
Good things: big load, large door, fairly quiet, knows how long it has to go, easy access to filters, little light inside, easy controls, time delay and anti-crease, outflow can easily be plumbed in to save emptying the water tank all the time.
Bad things: dust/lint filters need emptying all the time.Posted 4 years ago
Haven’t had to clean any filters.
In a couple of years?? How? Where does the lint go? 😕
The beko one has reminder lights to clean the filters but basically it is the pre-filter every couple of cycles and the main filter every six or so. Fortunately it is a very quick job as the pre-filter just lifts out and the main filter has a nice turn handle that makes you feel like you are installing a new CO2 scrubber on the space station 😀Posted 4 years ago
You always have to clear the filters all the time on tumble driers!
It wasn’t so bad on our previous one which was an absolutely ancient tumble drier (e.g. controls were on or off). That one was vented and didn’t really have a filter so it just blew all the lint out the vent hose 😕
But yeah I think most modern condensing driers you’ll have to empty the filter pretty regularly, so I’m intrigued by sl2000’s Bosch.Posted 4 years agofootflapsSubscriber
Would this be the same Beko who can’t be arsed to recall unsafe products?Posted 4 years ago
