Esatto 7kg Heat Pump Dryer EHPD7 $619 (23% off RRP) Delivered with Bonus 1 Year Warranty Extension @ Appliances Online

1420

For those that were disappointed to find the latest Stirling heat-pump dryer on Aldi is based on a Kogan and not an Esatto unit, here's a good deal on Appliances Online. Not the best price it's ever been, but pretty close. I have no experience with it myself, ordered it yesterday, but reviews everywhere are very positive.

P.S: First-time poster here, please don't grab your pitchforks if I messed anything up.

        It takes noticably longer than an old school dryer.

            @deal01: I have this dryer. It can take 3 or 4 hours for a particularly wet or large load. Average I think is typically 2 hours.

            •  

              @tonyamazing: Thank you !

              •  

                @deal01: I've had a Teka heat pump dryer for a few years and I find that that tonyamazing's experience holds (although mine is closer to 5 hours at the top end).

      •  

        It's not quick that's for sure. But haven't noticed the hit on my power bills that I did with the old type of dryer which is nice.

      •  

        Takes a but longer but uses less power so shouldn't do worse that breaking even on power use.

          But you still have a large capital outlay compared to a normal dryer.

          We've found heat pump dryers have an average 10-year running cost of $588, compared with an average of $1523 for vented dryers. And that's based on one run per week – if you're a heavy dryer user then the savings will be bigger, and you'll rapidly justify the higher purchase price.
          Of course, the flipside is also true – heat pump dryers are expensive to buy and if you rarely use your dryer then you won't recoup the initial outlay through energy savings, so consider your usage patterns and the total cost of ownership (purchase price plus running costs) before deciding which dryer technology to pursue.

            @spaceflight: At this price it's not much different to a traditional dryer with regard to capital outlay though so defo a decent price and saving.

            @spaceflight: jebus once a week? we're a 2 person house hold with 3 cats and a dog, I think I run our dryer every second day.. I can't imagine being a family with kids :insertfearemojihere:

            •  

              @lulzenberg: How do you make a full load of washing every 2 days?

              Do you ever hang your clothes out to dry?

              •  

                @spaceflight: 2 days is 4x shirts 4x pants 4x undies 4x socks 2x undershirts 2x singlets for two people, not to mention the dog's winter jacket that will have undoubtedly been soiled in some manner. This would be about a full load.

                and no, not during winter or summer.

                we have started using the deep freeze for our jeans though which is going well.

        Forever. And sometimes they are a little damp.

      wow that's really cheap! Was this promo recent?

        Hey mate, it was an afterpay promo, actually got it for $495 delivered

          I got one of these. Esatto appliances are very low cost (And from my experience low reliability brand - judging from my always-frost up freezer which I threw out and fridge that just gave up the ghost today) but for the heat pump dryer - if you are a heavy user like me the dryer will pay for itself quickly (I use it for hours a day lol).

    Worth noting that this unit cannot be wall mounted if that's an issue for anyone

    This dryer cannot be wall mounted but can be stacked on top of a compatible front load washing machine or simply placed on the floor, if you have the space.

    •  

      Thanks for this. I have a Bosch Washing Machine - do you think it will be any issue sitting it on top of it? Just wondering if mounting brackets work cross-brand?

      •  

        I'm not sure - maybe check the Bosch manual as to whether it specifically states that you can't put other appliances on top. Dryer mounting brackets are generally universal but maybe this model doesn't have the upper support and mounting holes to be able to do this, plus the bottom standoffs that hold it off the wall when pivoted

        •  

          Mounting brackets arent universal, they're different from brand to brand. And you cant mount heat pump/condenser dryers, that goes for all brands.

              @spaceflight: No, you cant. They're not designed to be hung, they dont sell kits for them and if people are hanging them then they're using their own brackets and they will probably fall off the wall after a period of time (some are as heavy as front loaders). The only ones you can hang up (because they're light) are vented dryers. See here if you dont believe me: https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/home-services/dryer-installat...

                What an assumption!
                They are using their own brackets, brackets that were custom engineered and made for the job. Brackets that are mounted into bricks with an engineered design.

                and they will probably fall off the wall after a period of time

                It will never fall of the wall, it was engineered to stay there!

                      @spaceflight: You're a very stubborn person arent you? You just hate to be proven wrong. Instead of listening to the expertise and experience of others you argue with them. I'm amazed you've lived as long as you have without learning anything from others. I just showed your comment to my colleagues and they all laughed and shook their heads.

                      You're also forgetting you cant mount them upside down, so how are you going to reach the controls when they're 7 feet in the air mounted on a bracket? Condenser dryers can be stacked ontop of the washing machine people, its not hard. Most people get rubber mats to put over the top of the washer and stack them. The idea of a bracket is just stupid - it only works for light vented dryers and even then we've seen them fall off walls because people dont mount them properly.

                      But I urge you spaceflight to mount one on the wall. Maybe when the repairer comes out to look at the damage in your laundry you can argue with him as well about 'engineering' techniques :)

              •  

                @theRev: You can mount them on the wall if you have brackets that support the weight - you can buy generic ones that would do it, but you better be sure its mounted properly or bad things will happen!

          •  

            @theRev: Generally not recommended to put anything on top of a washer because of the lack of stability thus the object over it most likely will fall. Besides that, washers mostly have just a plastic on top and it is not designed to have dryers over it unless your manufacturer state this information.

            • +1 vote

              @Clubbermga: No they're hard plastic shells, vented dryers are fine most people just put a towel down to stop scratching over time. With condenser dryers you can buy rubber mats that are designed to go over the top and disperse the weight of a condenser dryer. Some dryers like Mieles weigh as much as the washers and they sell their own stacking kits for those. Everything else though is pretty safe to stack the important thing is that you make sure your washer is level and not rocking around the place when its first installed, otherwise its fine. Most people do it that way if they're limited with space.

          Hi there

          I have an LG front loader with narrow depth of top 475 and width 600. Do you think I can stack this dryer on top of the washer?

          TIA

          •  

            @Nkl1986: The width would be fine. With the depth the legs will be right on the edge which might be ok with the stacking mat. Is there a lip on the edge?

            •  

              @dan086: Thank you. No there is nothing at the edge

              I am just thinking if it’s okay to not have legs and just stack it on mat above the washer

        I have this exact set up with four anti-vibration pads between them. No major movement.

        I have a stacking mat on top of my washer and dryer on top been using that for 5 years without any issues

      So if you are replacing a dryer you've got that already works to "save money", it's going to be about 884 loads of drying till the break even point.

      So say you do 2 loads a week, every single week, you are looking at about 8.5 years to break even, pending nothing going wrong with the more complex, cheap Chinese heat pump dryer in nearly a decade of use 🤔

          So yeah if you are going to try and sell your old dryer and not just give it away or something then you are probably looking at more like 7 to 8 year break even point.

        Yes, but your old dryer is free in the calculation. It's better to compare the difference of the prices instead of the full price with 0.

        •  

          I don't think that would be the best way of doing it, as you already have your old dryer.

          Fair enough comparing the difference if you are starting from scratch and either don't own a dryer or are replacing a broken one, but if you have a working one then its value is really only 2nd hand prices, not what you paid for it, and 2nd hand appliances don't fetch that much. Probably $50-150 as I mentioned in the previous post.

        Can't argue with the dollar cost. This is assuming that the tumble dryer you are replacing is brand new and has no wear.

        Each household has different loads too. Before child, my partner and I were doing one load every 1-2 weeks. After one child especially during illnesses, we're doing about 5 loads in a week. I can't imagine what it would be like with multiple children. It adds up quick.

        • +2 votes

          Yeah the payback time obviously slides with how many loads of drying you do.

          If you dry everything and never use a washing line then the payback period might by shorter… If you hang stuff up to dry and only use dryer for when you are rushed and/or bad weather then financially it almost definitely doesn't make sense.

          But people make buying decisions all the time that don't make financial sense, so don't let that stop you people 😅

      • +3 votes

        I did just this. Replaced my perfectly fine vented dryer (sold for $150) with a heat pump dryer form and earlier OZbargain deal (Bosch).

        You also need to consider that your thermal envelope of the house will improve as you can remove the hole in the wall for the vent - or the benefit of no condensation in the laundry (no opening of windows to let the cold in) and no risk of cold which will trigger a repaint of the walls which costs money too. So your air quality and thermal comfort in the house will improve. Hard to put a $ figure on this - but it's worth a lot to me! There is also the benefit of lower noise levels.

        On the downside the dryer runs longer (still uses far less engird - don't think when it runs longer it costs more - the longer cycles are cheaper. Compare it to a car driving fast or slow to the destination. You use less petrol going slower. Mine takes 2.5 to 3 hours to compete a cycle.

        Some people complain that the clothes are not as dry anymore with a heat pump dryer (you hear this for all models). In my opinion: put that all down to user error - they did not read the manual and don't know how the sensor works or don't clean the filters.

        To buy this purely to save money …. not a good idea. To increase comfort and even go break even - go for it!

        •  

          This is what I forgot to mention. The kicker was a damp and mouldy laundry (my fault for not leaving ventilation fan on). There is also a cost to ventilating all that tumble dryer moisture as well.
