    Great price. I paid slightly more a couple of weeks ago from Appliances Online via eBay. Top service and very happy with the dryer.

    •  

      Sorry, $1200 for a dryer? Does it iron my clothes also at this price?

        It's a heat pump dryer.
        Unlike a normal dryer, it doesn't vent out water vapour & heat that lead to a humid/hot room & eventually moldy walls. It also uses a lot less energy than a conventional dryer and less electricity depending on usage.

          It's essentially a fridge in reverse.

          I'm not familiar with dryer, can the $495 Esatto heat pump dryer do all of the above?

          • +2 votes

            @ChubbyMastiff: All heat pump dryers are similar in fundamentals that way. None of them will emit water vapour, for example, like a vented dryer. There will instead be water collecting in a tray and you will need to empty it periodically. I think some machines may allow for a plumbing connection to allow for the water to drain out.

            @ChubbyMastiff: Absolutely, but can I sell one to you at more than 2 times the price? For many, apparently so.. Suckers.

              They're both not comparable like that. For starters, the Esatto is 7kg and the Bosch one is 9kg, and the Esatto has a 6-stars energy rating and the Bosch has an 8-stars energy rating. The Bosch ought to be more expensive by all rational means.

              Besides, one is made in China with a label stuck to it, and another is made by an an established, well-known German engineering and technology conglomerate and is made in Poland. I'd get the Bosch at $1200 instead of Esatto at $500, yes (I missed both deals, but that's another matter).

                @CocaKoala: Plenty of products made in China are very high quality, we all have Chinese made products in our homes, it all comes down to the company itself. Where do you think iPhones were made until recently? China. They have only recently started moving the production of iPhones to Sharp in Japan and Taiwan, (due to trade wars with China & US) but almost all their hardware until recently was made in China and no one said they were poorly made.
                If a company has good quality control, it's just as good in China as anywhere, and cheaper due to lower pay rates.

                    @CocaKoala: Then you don't have an iPhone or any smartphone? Of course, it's your choice, no argument there, however many don't realise how many products in their home are made in China because they have big brand names, such as Apple, Fisher & Paykel (Chinese made) and assume they are made in Germany, NZ, the USA etc.

                    •  

                      @DisabledUser110907: Which part of this is not clear to you? "My money, my choice".

                      Then you don't have an iPhone or any smartphone?

                      Yes, I do have a smartphone but it's just not made in China. You are asking a question and are "explaining" more to me like this has some relevance here - I don't care if any product that I already own is made in China, but I will not buy any more junk from China. I don't know what exactly is so difficult to understand in here.

                      I've made numerous purchases since the pandemic (dishwasher, air conditioner, router, mobile phones, leather recliner, laptop, etc.) and none of them are made in China. I know because I made sure of that before the purchase, and I am not going to change my mind about this and I know I am not alone.

                      •  

                        @CocaKoala: I think you are completely misunderstanding me, I don't like buying Chinese made products either, but it's almost impossible to avoid due to their dominance.
                        What phone do you have that is not made in China? I would love to buy one myself if it is decent, but I haven't found a single phone not made in China. Nokia used to be made in Finland, but not now that it isn't really a Nokia device, just the brand name sold off to a Chinese manufacturer (HMD).
                        I recently purchased a Breville espresso machine, thinking it wasn't made in China, being an Australian founded company, but there it was, on the back of the box "Made in China" I also thought my Fisher & Paykel Dishdraw was made in New Zealand, it's not, it's made in China (they've moved production out of NZ), there is no alternative to a dishdraw style dishwasher, which I need for the space I have.

                          Well, don't worry about my misunderstanding, and I definitely don't care about what other people want to buy with their money because it's their money.

                          I don't like buying Chinese made products either, but it's almost impossible to avoid due to their dominance.

                          This has not been true at all based on my experience. I didn't ever have to spend any considerable time trying to find items that are not made in China. Yes, they do dominate in making cheap products with a few exceptions (the stooges will immediately say iphone, iphone, which is also moving out of China now). If you're willing to pay a bit more for higher quality, there are plenty of choices.

                          What phone do you have that is not made in China? I would love to buy one myself if it is decent, but I haven't found a single phone not made in China.

                          May be you're not finding one because you're looking at xiamoi or other crap like that. Samsung is the world's largest manufacturer of mobile phones, and their biggest mobile phone manufacturing plant is in India.

                          PLENTY of Samsung, LG, Sony phones are either made in Korea, Japan, Vietnam, India, Brazil, or Indonesia. The last two phones that I recently purchased were an LG Velvet, which is made in Vietnam and a Samsung S20+, which I can't remember the manufacturing country of, but it certainly is not China. As a matter of fact, pick ANY Samsung phone and it will not be made in China: https://www.sammobile.com/where-are-samsung-phones-made

                          You want a dishwasher? Get a dishlex - made in Europe. Do let me know what else you want and I'll tell give you options to choose from. Just don't expect to pay cheap made in China prices if you want higher quality.

                          •  

                            @CocaKoala: Dishlex does not make a dishdrawer (or similar), as I said, Fisher & Paykel is the only brand that makes this format, which is a must for many in apartments.
                            I don't have room for a full-sized traditional dishwasher in a 1 bedroom apartment.

                            Obviously, in a house, this isn't an issue :)

                            Sony has pulled out of phones in Australia, so that isn't an option (not importing one for warranty reasons)

                            But I will take a look at a Samsung next time, good to know, cheers!

                            Surprisingly the new Xbox Series X is made in Malaysia, Sony PS5 in made in China (not Japan).

                            Anyway, time for me to do more research before my next purchase.

      as in can you feel the heat when you walk in when its on?

        Ignorable level in the room, you can feel a bit warmth if you stand in front of the machine but not at all suffocating as cheaper models.

    What are the metrics on the savings for a heat pump dryer? I would have thought putting the additional money towards solar would be better value for money, provided your able to run your dryer during the day.

    •  

      Probably. If you are using your dryer 2-3 times a week this might never pay itself back. Paying an extra $1,000 for a higher capacity solar system if you don't have solar installed yet would be a better investment.

      When I purchased mine I really did sit down and compare a $198 aldi dryer to the $1688 one I was buying. Short story was that over the 10 years the cost was going to be that close that there was almost nothing in it in terms of overall savings. Despite the 8x or 9x up front cost.

      Decided in the end if it was going to be the same monetary outcome - best I live with a high quality, quiet, heat pump one that also has zero condensation and has a number of great features. I'd enjoy the experience so much more than a loud, pipe running outside, sweatfest. No regrets thus far.

        What's the reliability like of these heat pump dryer? Will it last the 10+ years compared to the relatively simple design of a standard dryer I wonder.

        I know early heat pump dryers had a bad name for reliability but I find Bosch stuff to be pretty good so hopefully these go the distance.

        • +2 votes

          More complexity, more failure points. But it's heat pump technology which has been around for a long time and robotically produced in huge quantities. It's reliable enough, though it simply won't beat the rock dumb ultra basic fan + resistive element combo of an old fashioned dryer.

        • +1 vote

          Well your front loader won't last as long as your old top loader washing machine but many people bought those.

          Just like the front loaders, heat pump dryers are much better to your clothes.

          I own this model dryer. It isn't perfect in my eyes. The drawbacks is that it takes forever to dry things properly. Often two cycles.(a long one then the 20 minute warm cycle). It does a decent job of auto sensing when the stuff is dry and will end the cycle, but that doesn't always mean every item in the dryer is dry. Plus you have to plumb the thing otherwise you are forever emptying the draw of water (like I do) every time you do a full load direct from the washing machine. Plus the lint collector also needs to be regularly cleaned to keep the machine running well.

          But if you have kids, they are a life saver in the Victorian winter and you will get a few loads washed and dried in the same day with not a lot of power used.

    Wow.. Seems like a great price!
    I paid $1688 delivered for a WTW87566AU about 10 months back. Mine has a 9 star energy rating otherwise I'm not sure what the difference is.

    I've never had Bosch before in my life - loving the one I've got and I now assume all their models are high quality, quiet and trouble free.

      Given you’re in Melbourne I’d say essential. We’re in Queensland and use ours only about 10-12 times a year with a toddler so not essential but nice to have.

    I live alone and have a standard sensor dryer. I get home and change clothes, so I probably do laundry more than others. I use dryer 99% of the time.

    Works out to ~$8/mo for both the front-loader and the dryer.

    Something to keep in mind when you're looking at $800-1200 price increase on heatpump. If the slightly higher noise and humidity doesn't bother, take the savings. Invest in something, or buy yourself another toy.

  •  

    Are these completely sealed? I have a combined laundry/garage, and I don't like the idea of car fumes and petrol fumes from the mower going through the clothes. Even if you can't smell it in the clothes those particles are carcinogenic.

    I've asked this question a lot and everyone so far has forcefully answered that it's sealed without really knowing. I suspect none of these condenser dryers are truly sealed, but rather extract the moisture and heat from the air but let the air circulate between the drum and environment. Maybe a combo washer/dryer is truly sealed but I'm not sure about that either.

  •  

    Anyone stacked these on top of washers? Is the stacker kit just a gimmick?

      It's a very heavy unit, but you should be able to stack it. Wall mounting may not be possible though.
