    Would be if they'd ship it to me, but not via eBay they won't. I live in Canberra…but eBay deems it Regional NSW, and Appliances Online has excluded Regional NSW from delivery. Can buy through their website…but where's my 15% then?

    Same for their other large items.

      Change your postcode to 2000 and buy it

      When you get the confirmation email from eBay call appliance online and update you address and postcode to Canberra

      This works because they deliver to Canberra anyway

      Feel free to confirm the above using the appliance online hotline

        "This item doesn't post to QLD Far North" Does that work for other areas as well?

          I think they probably did intend to exclude FNQ because, well, $$$ I guess.

          They advised me last night that they do freight to Canberra (though I knew this, because on their website it's no issue). I expected they'd get back to me with something like lazydavy's advice above, but haven't heard yet. I was actually after a washing machine (same story), though wouldn't mind a condensing dryer too!

        Thanks for the tip. Ordered with postcode 2000, and contacted them via eBay message to change delivery address. Getting delivered to Wodonga VIC.

    Great price. I think we paid $1800 a year ago

    Anyone know how this went/compares in Choice compared to LG H802SJW on this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/456401

      Overall Rating 14th vs 1st.
      Overall Score: 72% vs 84%
      9kg vs 8kg
      Cost to dry 1kg of items $0.18 vs $0.09

        What makes LG better compare to Bosch? I have no idea about either one but have seen Bosch bought by many but no mention about LG.

          Pips Bosch on Energy efficiency 9 star vs 7. And shorter drying time. Most of the heat pump dryers are all quite similar though. Generally no bad points except they don’t alternate the direction they spin. So can get some tangled sheets. I have the Bosch 9kg washer, so will likely get this to match. Better fit under a 600mm deep bench top too. The LG is deeper.

          • +1 vote

            @LeftHandSeat: To put the 7 vs 9 EE stars into perspective: the LG manual quotes energy consumption as 115kWh for 52 uses. If we take the most energy-intensive cycle from the Bosch manual, it comes to 129kWh for 52 uses. That's 14kWh difference, which is about the same as a 10W led globe used for 4 hours a day over a year. Use less energy-intensive cycles and the difference is even less.

            In other words, while less is good, beyond a certain point diminishing returns kicks in and you're talking four-fifths of bugger all.

        Thanks for the info. Bit concerning it came in at 14 - I was expecting somewhere in the top 4 :(

      •  

        What models were 2nd and 3rd? Very concerning that it pulled up 14th!

      Choice Mag is a joke. You need to look at how they weight each category. They frequently give certain aspects a higher importance that make better items seem worse than they are and vice versa, crappy items better than they are.
      They once gave an absolutely crap tv the highest rating due to ease of use, never mind that the actual picture quality was appalling. I’ve seen many things like this, it’s why I cancelled my subscription years ago.

  •  

    Paid $1,350 late last year so a great price.

  •  

    I'm getting $1,242.90 with PHOENIX discount this end. How did you get $1,181?

    Loving my free solar one

  •  

    Can anyone explain why this can't be wall mounted ? Also having trouble with justifying $1200 for a dryer (but am pretty sure if I did buy one, it'd turn out to be easy to justify.. sigh :-)

    We have a very vanilla F&P wall mounted unit and it gets used perhaps a dozen times a year..

    •  

      Because its weighs 56kg and doesn't have a wall mount? There is a stacking kit though, so can be stacked on a Bosch washing machine. Appliances online also advertise a generic rubber stacking Appliance APL600 Washer/Dryer Mat.

    • +2 votes

      Someone’s already responded to the wall mount question so I’ll skip it. If you rarely use a dryer then you probably don’t need this. Short story is energy efficient dryers are worth the extra cost if used frequently. More info on the link: https://www.canstarblue.com.au/electricity/how-much-energy-d...

  •  

    Bought the APL600 mat from appliance online. Worst nightmare. It's made from recycled rubber so when the dryer is running, the whole house would smell like burning plastic. i have to leave the house everytime when the dryer is running

  •  

    Back in stock it appears.

  •  

    Are there any heat pump dryers that can be wall mounted?

  •  

    How do you connect a drain hose from this dryer to the laundry sink to avoid having to empty the water reservoir every time?

    Just bought a new dryer. There is an online calculator that u can use to see which is more cost effective. Turns out after the massive initial outlay for a heat pump, it would take 10 years to break even using it 6 times a week. We don’t use it that much so it would take even longer. The environmental factor is a thing to consider too, a regular dryer uses more power each use but there are far more components in a heat pump, which would no doubt use more energy to manufacture. Ended up going a regular dryer.

    •  

      Yep we use our conventional dryer maybe once a week at most

      •  

        Depends on how frequently you use it. Usual calculation is once a week. I have this model bought last year. We run it everyday for a family of 5. Fantastic. Runs during the day utilizing Solar. One of the best I have ever purchased.

    •  

      What was your math? This dryer is only $1181 for a top shelf German made heat pump dryer. You pay pretty much the same for a top shelf German made regular dryer. So where is the massive initial outlay?

    I bought this for 1500 1.5 years ago from a ebay sale.
    Good dryer with 7 star energy rating.
    recently had a issue with water pump, was covered under 2 year warranty.
    Guy replaced told me that it's a known fault,which gets easily fixed with water pump replacement.

  •  

    Also do not forget heat pump dryers are much gentler on clothes and come in larger capacities, need to take capacity into consideration when comparing running costs between vented dryers and heat pump.

  •  

    Far out I paid on amercian express points $1800 for this! Good dryer I like it. But the wife complains the clothes are left a little damp, She wants them bone dry which I believe damages the clothes alot more. Do the newer dryers leave your cloths a little damp on purpose?

      The condenser style of dryer is designed that way yeah. They won't come out toasting hot like the traditional dryers, and will instead dry completely shortly after being taken out of the dryer. Some items you may have to hang on an airer for a little bit. It's certainly safer for the clothes, as it doesn't damage the fabrics anywhere near as much.

    •  

      I found the same, you can just set it to the higher drying level, but you have to press that button every time.

    I bought this dryer last night and it was delivered by 11am this morning. That was really fast!

    •  

      Same. Though mines coming this afternoon. They must have expected a run on them and had them ready to go with the delivery agents. Great service really.

  •  

    Is this for nsw only?

  •  

    Can definitely recommend this for small bathrooms/laundries and European Laundries. Have found if u whack it on the sportswear setting they come out pretty toasty warm

    We have 7kw of solar panels and full monitoring and I find it difficult to work out when the dryer ran from our electricity use graph, our baseline use barely changes. Truly amazing.
