“Terrific Little Runner”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by AlanHealy282 (1 review written)

We bought this condenser tumble dryer a little over 7 years ago. It's seen pretty heavy use by us - a minimum of one load a day and always 5 or 6 loads on the weekends. Being asthmatic, we use it to dry all our washing, especially as we have nowhere to hang out or air it. 7 years and it's still going strong, never gave us any trouble and has never needed repair. We clean out the lint and empty the bottle after each wash and rinse out the condenser every week, after the last load on Sunday… Read Full Review

“Dryer blew up”

Written on: 25/01/2015 by Whaleofatime (1 review written)

Had this dryer for approx three years. It has been used at most once every 2 weeks during the winter months only and mostly it's been used to dry off clothes which have been dried on a washing line or on a radiator. I had it on the last week for this exact purpose and after it had been on for about 20 minutes I heard loud sparking and banging noises, followed by a burning smell. I ran in to the kitchen to hear the sparking noises getting louder and louder then there was an almighty bang and I… Read Full Review

“Lasted just over a year”

Written on: 17/10/2014 by rcKeegan241 (1 review written)

Last night when we turned on the dryer it blew the main fuse. Checked the fuse - good. Plugged the dryer into another outlet - same thing - as soon as I turned on the outlet the main fuse blew. It's been drying progressively worse but unlike some other reviewer's it hasn't give us any hassle with the water sensor - perhaps because we've been fanatic about making sure the collector was empty before we turned on the dryer. Going to contact the seller and see what they say about the UK Sale of… Read Full Review

“Dangerous waste of money”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by sn00t (1 review written)

We have had our tumble dryer about 18 months. We don't use it unless it is raining, so through summer it isn't on that often. Today my wife plugged it in to use it, there was a loud bang and thick acrid smoke started to come out from underneath it filling the room. Would not trust again… Read Full Review

“MACHINES THAT DO NOT LAST”

Written on: 21/03/2014 by JonCrawford (1 review written)

I WILL TRY AND BE INPARTIAL FOLLOWING READING ALL OF THE REVIEWS ON THIS SITE. Bought our Beko DRCS68W just two years ago. We have not had any problems until yesterday. We use this no more than once a week and only then when we cannot hang out washing. We have adhered strictly to the manufactures instructions, regarding load, and filters,sensor cleaning and water removal at correct times. So everything has been okay and the clothes have always come out as per programme. Unfortunately… Read Full Review

“Total disaster”

Written on: 01/01/2014

This is the worst machine we have ever had. A walking disaster. The warning for full tank and full filter come on when the tank only has a few drops of water to empty and the filter regularly says full when it isn't. We have it in the garage and can't keep an eye on it but today it said full for both tank and filter when, literally, only about thirty drops of water came on so I cleared the tank and the filter and started it again only to find, half an hour later it said both were full again… Read Full Review

“do not buy”

Written on: 29/12/2013 by rock-god (1 review written)

I bought this machine a year ago but could not use it due to a safety recall saying that it may set on fire ! this was rectified 2 weeks later but the dryer has never been any good.Takes an eternity to dry anything , stops every 5 minutes telling me the water tank is full when it is not.Recently the heater element failed but was replaced under warranty . I cannot stress enough how bad this thing is...we are a family with three children so the machine does have alot of use but surely it should… Read Full Review

“A waste of money - worst tumble dryer in the world!”

Written on: 03/11/2013 by HullJe (1 review written)

Takes an eternity to dry anything, the filters are continuously dirty and it's always saying the water tanks full. It also leaves black marks on clothes which don't come out. The sensor which supposedly detects when clothes are dry doesn't work - I would not recommend this machine to anyone!… Read Full Review

“Works a treat!”

Written on: 12/03/2013

No issues at all. Had it 18 months. USe it around 3-4 times a week, dries all clothes we put in it perfectly. All I have to do is remember to empty the filter and water container. We have it placed in the garage but it does not seem particularly noisy at all. The first one I've owned and happy to have this model. Well done Beko!… Read Full Review

“Rubbish”

Written on: 17/11/2012

My beco has done approx. 18 months work and the heaters have expired. Argos refuse to replace, so in future I will never use Argos again and previous to this I was a loyal customer, and never buy Beco either. Mr A from Suffolk… Read Full Review

“Do Not Buy”

Written on: 12/09/2012 by oreilje (1 review written)

Bought this based on a budget - ran well for 6 - 12 months and has not ran properly since. Changed heaters ut to no avail. Machine will take an eternity to dry a full load. Has to be continually started so it will take days to get clothes to a nearly dry state. If left alone (not used for a week or more) it will dry the next load in one cycle but no more. I've tried to find out online about the problems and it is full of complaints about this machine. Problem is with the circuitry as far as I… Read Full Review

“Avoid. Won't last the year”

Written on: 21/04/2012

Now after running this BEKO condensing tumble dryer for a year, I think that people should know how bad this machine is. We are now onto a second heating element and the vibration and noise is terrible. These work really well for first 6 months and did a good job, but part are of poor quality and machine is just a total waste of money… Read Full Review

“Outstandingly Good”

Written on: 11/04/2012 by andy8771 (3 reviews written)

This was bought to replace a much more expensive Hoover Vision which was basically total and utter rubbish. We took a gamble with Beko as I thought it would be a badly designed cheap machine....how wrong I was. The water collection is great and nicely designed to be at the top so no more bending over grovelling about on the floor,the filter likewise,both are really easy to empty.It is compact compared to others on the market,it has a three sensor programmes as well as a timer all work exactly… Read Full Review

“Costly waste of space and customer service to match”

Written on: 20/03/2012

My partner purchased this product on line 6 months ago (somehow it had good reviews???) From day one the power would cut out but I thought i must be over loading it or one of the filters needed emptying. Despite all my efforts of following instructions to the T, the power cut outs happen more and more until now it doesnt really work at all. I am dreading my electric bill! The machine just seems to bake inside but not dry the clothes. I forever wiping away damp fluff from under the filter… Read Full Review

“So Far So Good”

Written on: 08/02/2012 by AmandaV (11 reviews written)

We replaced a Bosch 10 year old vented dryer with a condenser as the pipe had always been a problem when pushing back against the wall. The Beco was a lot better value than the Bosch. A 6kg drum holds more than a full washer load, and the large square door ( looks good) provides easy access. We are very pleased with the drying of the dryer but sometimes on the ready to iron, have to put the clothes back in for a while. The drawer which holds the water is placed well at the top of the… Read Full Review

“Great family dryer; still going after 4 years heavy use”

Written on: 19/01/2012

This tumble dryer is still going strong after 4 years of HEAVY family use (1-2 loads PER DAY). All you have to do is make sure you maintain it - clean the condenser once a month or every 3 weeks (takes 1 minute, maybe less) and it runs like clockwork. Recently it tripped the RCD but it was easy to diagnose that the element needed changing (simply unscrew the back, unplug the element and see that it no longer tripped the RCD). I ordered a new element on ebay for £35, which arrived next day, and… Read Full Review

“Overall very, very poor”

Written on: 17/09/2011

I would not recommend anyone purchase this product. Finally, after 3 years ours has thankfully given up the ghost (now we have an excuse to buy another brand/model). Basically, the dryer takes so long even to dry the smallest amount of washing, it costs a fortune to use. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for and this dryer is no exception. Really really bad, don't buy it… Read Full Review
