Hotpoint Aqualtis AQC94F7E1M Freestanding Heat Pump Condenser Tumble Dryer - White

Top quality drying technology from Hotpoint. Energy use is kept low thanks to heat pump technology, which takes the hot air created during a cycle and reuses it - no wonder it comes with an A+ energy rating! With an enormous 9kg drum, the AQC94F7E1M condenser tumble dryer can handle the drying needs of a large family with ease. 16 different programmes, and a choice of 2 drying temperatures, give you total control over your laundry. Its sensor drying feature automatically adjusts the drying cycle to help care for your clothes with no extra effort needed. It's made in Britain too, so you know you're getting brilliant build quality.

"I loathe this dryer - so difficult to use"

Cons: poor quality, Complicated, Expensive, Noisy, impossible to understand manual, impossible to understand controls, advertised as a+++ but only a+ on machine

"I've had this dryer now for a couple of weeks - found it impossibly difficult to understand the controls and the manual when it first arrived, so decided to hold-off reviewing it until I was more familiar with it. I still loathe it! In my ratings I've given 5 stars for features as it appears to do everything - except dry clothes with ease! I've just spent about half an hour puzzling over the stupid little pictures on the controls, trying to work out how to 'cool dry' some synthetics. There are two filters to empty, one of which is incredibly fiddly involving a door that drops down and four plastic clips. Once you've taken it apart it's hard to get back together and clip back in. The other filter is easy to get out, but almost impossible to open - I've twice broken a nail trying to get the two halves to open. The dryer is in the summerhouse in my garden - thank goodness it's not in the kitchen as it sounds like a jet engine starting up and doesn't get any quieter. If you're thinking about this dryer, I seriously suggest you think again. It's AWFUL!"

"Great addition to the utility room!"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good

Cons: none

"I went for the heat pump version for economy but unable to verify if this is beneficial.

What I can say is it is a nice piece of kit. Really makes a difference. It is easy to use, however, the filter cleaning although easy to do is a chore.

We have it in a utility room so noise isn't an issue but it will be noticeable in a kitchen, although no noisier than a washing machine.

Has plenty of selections for all requirements. Easy to set once familiar with the icons, etc."

The AQC94F7E1M offers top-notch drying performance with an array of features that are designed to make your life easier. It’s huge 9kg drum has space for around 45 adult T-shirts, plenty of room for the whole family’s laundry. Sensor drying helps by sensing the moisture of a load and adjusting the cycleaccordingly, meaning that you can just walk away and let the machine handle it.

Each cycle ends with an intermittent tumble that helps to reduce creasing and saves you even more time on the ironing. Turbodry and refresh settings help you to customise how your clothes are treated, getting those important items dried more quickly and helping to rejuvenate any items that have been left too long.

With an A+ energy efficiency rating it helps to keep costs down and lets you do your bit for the environment effortlessly. A 1 year warranty as standard adds a little extra peace of mind to an excellent drying package.
