Hotpoint 9 kg GentlePower heat pump tumble dryer (H8 D94WB UK) - lifestyle 2

Hotpoint Introduces GentlePower Tumble Dryers

Following the launch of its GentlePower washing machine range, Hotpoint is introducing the new, perfectly matching, GentlePower tumble dryer, which helps to protect fabrics and care for the environment, whilst ensuring extraordinary drying performance.

The new 9 kg GentlePower heat pump tumble dryer, which is available in white (H8 D94WB UK) and silver-coloured (H8 D94SB UK), is a trusted partner in the home and delivers impeccable, compromise-free results thanks to GentlePower technology. The advanced air recirculation system uses a multidimensional hot air flow to reach every part of the laundry load and works in combination with special anti-stress drum movements, to guarantee gentle yet exceptional drying results whilst protecting the laundry during every cycle.

All of this is achieved with high efficiency thanks to heat pump technology that delivers energy savings up to £255 per year, and £3,318 over the lifetime of the appliance*. Unlike conventional dryers, the heat pump conserves the heated air and recycles it back into the drum for the most resource efficient way to dry clothes, towels and bedding.

What’s more, the advanced AutoCleaning condenser uses the water collected during the drying programme to automatically clean the fluff from the condenser at the end of each cycle. This advanced engineering means you never have to spend time manually cleaning the condenser filter. Additionally, the dryer also benefits from the practical DuoFilter, just inside the door, to capture most of the fluff generated during the cycle. This double filtration system can be easily removed after every load. Together, the AutoCleaning condenser and DuoFilter ensure long-lasting performance and reliability.

Kimberley Garner, Hotpoint Brand Manager, says: “We know consumers can often find that tumble dryers deliver inconsistent drying performance, over drying some items with others remaining damp, which is why we designed the GentlePower range. GentlePower tumble dryers ensure total fabric care, thanks to the efficient heat pump technology and multidimensional airflow, while delivering excellent drying performance regardless of the fabric type.”
