Have been waiting for a Miele sale to replace my old dryer. Now they offer 30% off on select laundry appliances. This TKB 350 WP 8KG TUMBLE DRYER seems to have decent reviews. It's a heat pump dryer and is super energy efficient 7*.

      what's the diff between heat pump & condenser dryer ?

      • +3 votes

        A condenser dryer works on the same principle as a normal "old school" dryer but doesn't need to be vented as it catches the moisture internally (you can plumb into a drain or empty the water container as you go). Great since you can put it in a cupboard, but still uses heaps of electricity. A heat pump dryer also doesn't need to be vented but uses some sort of black magic to dry clothes (something like a mini air conditioner condenser or something), and uses a truly negligible amount of electricity to do so. We bought a heat pump dryer last year, use it every day (2 young kids), and have not noticed any difference in our power consumption. If you can stomach the increased cost over a normal dryer, I highly recommend it.

      AFAIU, it's a heat pump condenser, i.e. it uses both technologies.

    •  

      Thanks, updated the post with those details.

    Looks like a discontinued model. Same price at TGG, Bing Lee and DJ

    •  

      TGG, HN, DJ, Bing Lee etc are all just proxies which redirect you to Miele. You then place an order directly with Miele. E.g., you can't use a discounted DJ gift card. There's a thread on Whirlpool on this.

      Not sure if TKB 350 is discontinued, but I have a Miele dishwasher and washing machine which are both loooong discontied by now, but still do the job well with virtually no maintenance or issues. Would have bought them again. To me, it's more about the right price than the year of the model, when it comes to Miele.

      •  

        Interesting business model. Is it possible to buy floor stock @ DJ or are they purely just for display only?

        •  

          I don't think DJ even have them on display, at least I never saw Miele big appliances there.

      •  

        You are able to use Gift cards for wherever you are purchasing from as payment.

        Eg, if you buy via dj’s - you are paying dj’s and can use discounted gift cards

          Unfortunately not with Miele appliances. Here is a sample dryer on DJ, try clicking PURCHASE there and see where it takes you.

          @uk3000:

          Online must be different to instore.

      •  

        This also means you're locked into Mieles bullshit ecosystem. You'll pay their extortion rates for parts and repairs. No generics available. If you're going to get this, pay the extra $250 to bump the warranty to 5 years or you'll be paying at LEAST that for your very first breakage at 2 years.. and every other following.

    Might want to add that you get a bonus fragrance "BONUS FRANGRANCE FLACON - COCOON" save $14.95

  •  

    I like my string, hell of a lot cheaper, energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

  •  

    For this price I hope it irons, folds the clothes up and puts them away for me as well.

    I’m about to buy one at the moment and if buying in a combo with a washer you get $200 off the dryer. I’m getting a tdb130 at $1700 less $200 less 10% gift card which is $1350.

    The dryer posted is a superceeded model but still good.

    You also get free delivery, install, take away if the old machine and 6 months of detergent if buying in a combo.

    This only works out if buying a combo though!

    The shipping to me (regional I guess) was $45, which made the total $1,444

    Tfw your dryer costs more than your washing machine?

  • +2 votes

    I own one of these, it's an absolutely fantastic dryer. From the LED lights to how quiet these things run, it's amazing. The added perk are the fragrance flacons, I've never had washing smell so good before! I'm yet to try the green flacons, I have one here but the blue and yellow ones are phenomenal!! Bit expensive as they only last around 50 dry cycles but once you smell your clothes after you'll never go back!

  •  

    As an update for shipping, gawd be prepared for a run around. The "desired date" for delivery on the shopping form is really only when "you want it to arrive at their own warehouse". They (COPE) then may or may not call you on that day, and arrange for possible delivery in the next day or two after that.

  •  

    I ordered on Thursday and delivery was confirmed as tomorrow. Let’s see if they come through with the goods.

    I suspect they will as I have a time allocated as well.

    What great service. Thy called to give me notice and I got an sms that directed me to a website that tracked the location of the truck ala Uber.

    Just ran the first cycle and the machines are so quiet!

    •  

      Got mine too and loving it. Did you get the drain hose connected to the sewer or leave in standalone mode?

      •  

        Yep, into my laundry trough. I can’t believe the washer weighs 100kg! Not sure how heavy the dryer is…

        •  

          Just beware of potential water backflow if connected alongside with the washing machine's drain hose. It very well can happen when the washer starts pumping out its drain water. A non-return vale should be installed, it's mentioned in the dryer's manual. Miele say the it's available as an optional accessory but it's nowhere to be found on their website. Maybe I should give them a call.

        • +1 vote

          @uk3000: good point. It’s a separate tube to the trough and a different entry a point so shouldn’t need a return valve.

          Dryer weighs 60kg. No wonder it was hard to shift across a little. Compared to the F&p top loader it replaced (which I lifted myself) they are tanks!

        •  

          @Onnzo:

          Yep much heavier but so much better than my old dumb vented dryer, in every other single way :)
          BTW, did you have success buying at DJ's with a discounted gift card? Not sure if they sell Miele at their Adelaide CBD location but certainly worth checking next time I'm after anything like this.

        • +1 vote

          @uk3000: Sure did. Got $200 off in a combo, free delivery, installation and takeaway of the old machine plus $100 of detergent and 10% off with the DJ’s cards!

          Saved about $800 off RRP.

        •  

          @Onnzo: A true blue OzBargainer approach!

        •  

          @Onnzo: have you given it a go with sheets and large items/ a full load? A few reviews saying it wont actually get them totally dry even on the extra dry setting. Seems odd!

        •  

          @911r: tried the washing machine but not the dryer yet. Have been air drying whilst there is still a bit of sun. Will try it out next load and report back

        •  

          @Onnzo: Great, thanks heaps!

        •  

          @911r:

          Hi 911 - Ran a relatively empty load of sheets in the dryer and it didnt feel dry after the first cycle. Tried it again and it still felt cold/damp. Normal clothes were fine though.

        •  

          @Onnzo: thanks for reporting back. I wonder if this is common to heat pump dryers, will need to do some research. Thanks so much!

        •  

          @uk3000: The non return valve is a separate purchase from their parts department on Melbourne cost me $82.50 including delivery. (Haven’t received it yet.)

  •  

    Anyone know if we can delay shipping? Maybe upto a couple months?

    • +1 vote

      when I purchased, I had the option to choose a delivery date (instore). Not sure how far out you can schedule though.

  •  

    Anyone have any luck with drying sheets? Seems widely reported they stay damp and also in @Onnzo's experience.
