Small, cheap, fairly light weight, ease of use
Sensor Fault - clothes are still damp when selector is turned to cupboard dry or extra dry..
Heating Fault - No longer heats, mechanical fault
Beko were the cheapest sensor vented tumble dryer in Currys in October 2008 priced at £150.
The dryer seems to take close to 2 1/2 to 3 hours to dry (cupboard dry) a half load of washing. Almost double the amount of time a Hotpoint dryer used to take to dry the same type of load.
The sensor does not accurately sense when the clothes are actually dry. The a majority of larger paneled clothes and laundry do reach a level of drying however, the seams, double layers of cloth and smaller paneled clothing will not sufficiently dry to an acceptable standard. It seems to sense the clothes are dry about 30 minutes before they should come out.
Now our unit no longer heats as though the heating element has failed.
No best pleased!
