Hotpoint Signature TCUD97B6HM Condenser Tumble Dryer, 9kg Load, B Energy Rating, White

Product information

Designed by Makio Hasuike exclusively for John Lewis

Boasting a huge 9kg capacity and as part of Hotpoint’s Signature range, the TCUD97B6HM 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 TCUD97B6HM’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 Signature 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.

Thanks to a soft motion motor, this tumble dryer delivers Woolmark Gold Accreditation. A smart valve water bottle has a high capacity for less frequent emptying, and 2 separate valves are on hand for rapid or precise emptying. The innovative wave design of the drum creates cushions of air maintaining the natural colour of clothes, so you know that your laundry will always come out in the best possible condition.

Other features on the TCUD97B6HM include an iScreen display showing detailed programme information and a memory function to store your favourite programme. A delay timer gives you the flexibility to dry clothes when it suits you. A cool white finish with a striking anthracite door tops off this machine.

Q & As

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely Poor Dryer. Bought this Aug 2013 and since purchase it takes repeated drying to do bedding and towels. Despite regular cleaning of the condenser unit and water removal the dryer is now showing a fault code meaning the thermostat has gone. Hotpoint have nationally attending to rectify a fire hazard within certain dryers and mine is included. But there,s a 5 week wait and we cannot have a repair for the fault specific to ours as they have no available engineers. We now have a dryer we cannot use as it,s not just a fire risk but it doesn,t dry and the thermostat fault could promote a further fire aswell. We will never buy Hotpoint again due to this inferior quality machine and poor customer care. 27 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hopeless, don't buy it!!!!! I put a lot effort into reading reviews to make sure I was buying the right dryer for my family. From the word go I was very disappointed in dryer's performance, particularly compared to other dryers I have had in the past. A normal load can take a number of repeated sessions before dry, I might as well give up with towels. i have really tried to check instructios and to persevere however i have lost the plot tonight after i have put a load on for about the 5th, time therefore i have decided it is time to put a complaint in to JL tonight and will be interested to see what happens!!! 12 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing tumble dryer No more damp washing hanging on radiators! This tumble dryer is amazing so happy that we purchased one with a condenser. This is the first time we've had one with a condenser so we are not limited where to place it. This is the second tumble dryer I have owned and with my previous one with a hose the window had to be open to let in cold air. The sensor is excellent so it knows when the clothes are dry. Highly recommend this product. 05 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Dryer Best tumble dryer I have used, has a huge variety of programmes and dries clothes very well. You simply set the programme and the machine does the rest and turns itself off when the clothes are dry. You can also set a drying time if you prefer. It deals very well with synthetics and delicate items, using the low heat settings. One reviewer has pointed out that it sometimes rolls large sheets and duvet covers together, but this is rarely a problem and doesn't affect many items. The machine is very well built and is made in the UK. George Henry Lee were superb during the sales and delivery process. 22 August 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed! After my Hotpoint tumble dryer decided to stop working, after a number of years, had not hesitation in purchasing another of the same make. Unfortunately, it was met with disappointment. I find the tumble dryer is ok for general drying of clothes but when I wish to dry bedding, I find that although it is a large drum to take a complete bedset, it ends up in a ball and therefore not completely dry. When drying towels, I cannot put too many in otherwise they take a very long time to dry. As its a condenser dryer, unless it's connected to a drainage pipe, the drawer needs emptying at the end of every cycle. On a positive note, the dryer is fairly quiet when it's running. Has a strong door and looks good. There are numerous drying cycles etc., plus once a cycle is complete the dryer turns itself off. 15 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good value Great size drum, quiet and dries clothes to perfection. Really happy with the quality of the unit for the price! Miele quality at half price! 01 January 2014
