Hotpoint Experience TCEL87B6P Condenser Tumble Dryer, 8kg Load, B Energy Rating, White

Product information

Boasting a huge 8kg capacity and as part of Hotpoint’s Experience range, the TCEL87B6P condenser tumble dryer features a variety of specialised drying programmes and functions to ensure that your family’s laundry is dried to the highest standard.

The TCEL87B6P’s 7-level sensor drying system precisely monitors the temperature and moisture inside the drum, automatically switching off when they reach the chosen level of dryness. It helps protect clothes while saving energy and money.

This Hotpoint Experience tumble dryer also includes anti-allergy action. A patented high temperature control system neutralises allergens for complete peace of mind and is ideal for those with sensitive skin. Whichever cycle you opt for, the reverse tumble action helps to detangle clothes and speed up drying.

An innovative heat and enjoy programme allows you to pop your towels and bathrobes in for a quick blast of heat, for a warm sensation after a bath or shower. Other features on the TCEL87B6P include an LED interface with programme progress indicators, keeping you updated at all times. A 9-hour delay timer gives you the flexibility to dry clothes when it suits you.

Excellent value for the monry Having bought a Hotpoint washing machine earlier in the year. My Hotpoint family is complete and I would recommend Hotpoint to anyone 11 June 2014
Good and practical product Bought this product because it was going to be my first tumble dryer. First time user and not so sure what to look for. Price is good and economical for a first dryer and although there were few negative reviews about malfunctioning dryer on first day.... It worked well for us so far. We have used it for 3 weeks since deliver and everything alright so far. Very happy but cannot say about future though. Hoping that it will last. 06 May 2014
Certainly an Experience (Bad!) Machine delivered on time by very nice John Lewis delivery. Unfortunately the machine wouldn't work, fault lights came on. Contacted John Lewis who said it would be quicker to get Hotpoint engineer out than replacement machine. Hotpoint Engineer arrived a week later and said he couldn't repair and machine needed replacing. One week later replacement machine arrived. Worked once and then kept stopping and showing water collector needed emptying but there was no water in it. Fed up, contacted John Lewis to pick up and re fund. Now two weeks as someone forgot to put in request for pick up. Coming this Thursday but John Lewis has now had my money for four weeks and I haven't had a working product. Very very disappointing all round and won't be touching any Hotpoint or Indiset stuff in future. My advice, steer clear of this product. I will have waited in four times by the time this gets picked up! This only got one star as there isn't an option for no stars. 18 March 2014
Couldn't be happier ! Having purchased a similar washing washing machine from John Lewis 3 years ago I decided to go with this model. It's in the utility room so I can't comment about noise and steam too much but a lot quieter than my old hotpoint which lasted 10 yrs and used twice a day. Clothes nice and dry and lots of settings so separating washing items is a good idea, I'm very happy with our choice and the price, the sensor setting is great !! As usual John Lewis service is faultless they gave me a 30 min warning for 8am and the delivery guys were really lovely as you would expect from JL. 19 January 2014
Laundry smells so fresh! I got this dryer and it has made me very happy. My laundry is dry much more quickly and best of all it smells so fresh compared with my old dryer. I have not noticed any tangling/knots and I can confirm the dryer drum does alternate directions periodically, as stated in the product description. It is also very quiet compared with my old dryer. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I agree with another reviewer that it does warm up the room slightly. To me, this is actually a lovely bonus as my house is high ceilings and single glazed windows and so is quite cold, and the dryer seems to have warmed and dehumidified the room - I think the house even smells better when I walk in! But I can see that this might be a problem in a low-ceilinged or smaller room situated in, for example, a flat or apartment which is already quite warm or not well-ventilated. I wouldn't say a huge amount of heat is given off, so don't be too put off by it because it is a great dryer in all other aspects. 07 January 2014
Buy It! This is an excellent dryer which is up to the task. It is in daily use by a family of 5 - including 3 teenagers - so it gets plenty of loads. Great British product sold by a great retailer at a good price. Delivery experience was superb too. 31 December 2013
HOT & KNOTS !! A wonderfully huge drum !! But over complicated number of options for drying ! Once I had re-read the very comprehensive instruction manual a couple of times the instructions did fall into a pattern of use / type of loads but ..... So HOT ! This is my 1st experience of a condenser drier - had no idea that the drier would emit such heat / make the air so hot ! I leave the drying room door wide open and manage to heat the 1st floor of house ! We are all walking around feeling so hot ! The dogs are panting too !! So suggest the location of the drier is important to make sure there is a vent or door in the same room as the drier. Also the air in rooms feels very slightly moist ? !! ? I would be interested if there was data on moisture content emitted ?! KNOTS ! Everything was going so well until I dried loads of bed linens - so far the sheets / duvet covers just twist into knots so you have to keep returning to 'un-knot' !! It 's really surprising the machine doesn't alternate tumble directions. If there are any tips on how to reduce knots - please ? !! Although generally content with the drier I do think my old more basic Hotpoint drier - simple, limited drying options, reverse tumble action and vented to the outside - was all I really needed and current machines are far more #over# complicated for me and my family needs. PS I have also realised - because my drier has a drying sensor - that my old washing machine doesn't have a powerful enough spin to remove significant moisture ! So now I'm looking at replacing washing machine - Ohhh no !! 23 September 2013
