Does what it says on the tin. Nothing more, nothing less.
As we live somewhere that rains almost non-stop over winter, we tend to lean pretty heavily on our dryer to keep us clothed. Over the 8 years or so prior to buying this machine, we flogged two secondhand dryers to death, with the third now mothballed in case our main dryer fails. Our logic being that we thrash our dryers, therefore we'd be better off buying a lightly used high-end brand for peanuts instead of a new cheapie (and this is still a good option IMHO).
The main reason we bit the bullet and bought a brand new dryer is because said (...now mothballed) dryer was acting up and we couldn't find a decent replacement on Gumtree at the time. I also didn't have the time to go through the existing dryer and get it running again (although it is now; it was a simple lint-related issue). Enter the Beko. Whilst it would be nice to spend the big bucks on a heat pump dryer, I'm not convinced that the reduction in running costs would offset the extra spend ... especially given that our dryers seem to have a lifespan of around 3 years. As such, we went for a conventional dryer. The Beko got the nod due to a combination of European build quality and ducted rear venting. The latter is an excellent feature, allowing us to duct water vapour out of the laundry through an open window ... and no, it doesn't cause a draft to flow through the rest of the house - a properly sealed laundry door helps here. We put all sorts of clothes in this dryer. The missus likes her clothes to be extra crispy, and her attire is made from all sorts of synthetic textiles. We also put everything else in here from my 100% cotton work shirts (including a few fancy pants Rhodes & Beckett examples) to light blankets and not a single item has been ruined. The sensor functions work really well most of the time, although there will be the occasional cycle (say 1 in 10) where the machine will forget to stop drying once the dryer's contents reach optimal dryness.

Basic and reliable unit
Decent amount of heat, does what its supposed to. The only shortcomings are that because it doesn't have bells and whistles, the drum only turns in one direction and is prone to hotspots. If drying sheets, it would be wise to check on it ever so often, pull out/fluff the sheet about. Dryers should never be running unattended anyway as its a fire hazard, so this hasnt been too much of a hassle to me.

Drys quickly and is quiet
This dryer is gentle on my clothes, is quiet and dries items quickly. The only downside is that it stops itself when sheets and large towels or quilts aren’t dry. The larger items seems to get rolled into a ball and are damp in the middle. But overall this dryer is great because it is so gentle, allowing me to use the dryer for delicate items and also drying in half the time of my old dryer without over heating my clothes.
Dont buy this dryer
Yes it will dry clothes but it creases them terribly. No point adjusting the settings because you will end up with either dry very creased clothes or slightly damp clothes. It also doesn't respond well to just a couple of items in the dryer, it stops drying even though clothes are still wet. I cant wait for it to break down so I can replace it with another brand.
Impressed and affordable
I bought this dry as I was on a limited budget but still wanted something with a good energy rating and a decent size. I can't fault it. There's loads of drying cycles to chose from and a alarm to let you know it's finished. ( this can also be silenced)
Quick drying but...
I use this for all types of clothes, kids school uniforms, work shirts (M&F) and heaps of sports gear.
It works really well but the only draw back is the constant 'wrinkle guard'.
Don't know if it's just me, but whatever cycle I put it on it won't just stop when the clothes are dry. Every few minutes it rolls around a few times then stops again. This is frustrating if you want to put it on at night.
Must have For Winter!
We live in freezing victoria and drying clothes in winter is just about impossible without a dryer. This works admirably and is simple and easy to use. It has a few nifty features that make it better than usual. First up it reverse tumbles which means all the clothes don't end up in a ball, secondly it has an interior light - never seen that in a dryer before an lastly it senses when the clothes are done - yes! Its a good dryer!

Product low lifespan
I brought my Beko driver from Bing Lee. At the time I was recommended the brand, I was told it is popular in Europe. To my disappointment the product only last me 4 years and no Warranty cover (only last 2years). This is my only Beko products in the house and I must say even my Samsung washing machine and my parents’ dryer from another brand last longer (more than 6years n still running great) than my Beko. I call the technician to check to see what wrong with it and it cost me $120 for him to tell me what wrong with it.. and now I got a quote ...for just to replace part for $290.00 plus another service fees. The technician say the front panel is faulty..I think it is better to buy a new dryer but never again Beko.. esp if their products only last pass warranty date...and price of repair is equal close to buying a new 1.
Purchased this dryer as washing was getting on top of me its a great dryer only down fall is sometimes it will tell you it's done when everything is still wet. Bonus is it comes with a silver pipe you can stick out your window/door to stop condensation which we all hate. Very handy appliance to have in your home especially those rainy days
Really Good Dryer
I have been pleasantly surprised by this dryer. I was so used to not having one before we got this that it took me a while to get used to it. I am pretty keen on it now though! The best way to use it is to finish off half dried clothes and sometimes all it takes is 15 minutes to have everything perfect. The dryer is huge and could take the whole washing load if needed. It seems very strongly built and works well.
Great Dryer From Beko
I finally agreed to get this last winter and what a difference it made! Warm fluffy towels instead of cold half damp ones for a start. I had not heard of Beko before but the build quality is good and solid and its well designed. It is simple to operate and has worked flawlessly since we have had it. It was excellent value and provided it keeps running without issue, then I will be happy.
We bought this dryer last month. It has been fabulous. great capacity. Plenty of drying options and cycles. Well made and quiet. It was also a great price. It's mostly used for finishing the drying id still a bit damp. I would definitely recommend this clothes dryer. It is exceptional value. It was bought from The Electrical Discounter in Underwood Brisbane.
No more Hanging out on the line
I literally no longer hang my clothes on the line to dry.
This Beko clothes dryer is the best value for money dryer out there. It can pack in an incredible 6 kg of clothes. Has some very book features and options for different types of drying. Even auto spins once the dry cycle is finished to prevent creasing.
Excellent budget price dryer
Purchased from Gumtree a year ago for $100. Possibility the best $100 I’ve ever spent. I’ve stacked it on the matching washing machine & it works perfectly. Always use the extra dry setting & add 20 mins at the end if required. Like the washing machine it reminds me of a cheap Kmart kettle but is a budget model. I highly recommend this dryer.
It work fine
It take me around 60 mins to dry a big basket of clothes with high heat. If I load 3/4 full of machine, the clothes still wet a lit bit. It run not too noisy like the one I bought before. The only thing i dont like is it make a lot of small fabric further when finishing.
Love it highly recommend
The dryer is fantastic. Its super quiet and gets the job done, ive had a few dryers over the years and this is the best I have ever used. Sleek and looks good and is great on power and water. Love the light so you can see inside for any pesky hiding socks
Needed every day
It is a great machine with that all9ws you to dry your clothes and or linen to what you need. Ready to iron or extra dry. Has a handy light inside that allows you to see if it has missed anything while taking it out. It is also large enough for a family of 5
Good and quiet.
I love the style of this dryer. It is very quiet and drys the clothes quiet fast. It is not loud and runs smoothly. My previous 7 kg didnt seem to fit as much as this one does. It drys the clothes fast and all the way through. Inly bad thing is once the cycle finishes the light stays on..

Fabulous dryer even though I've never heard of Beko, I recommend it
This dryer is fabulous. I'm surprised how quick and quiet it is. My old Hoover must have been 20 or more years old, so replacing it was difficult. I'd never heard of Beko but with so many new brands on the market these days just took a chance, plus the price suited my pension
Questions & Answers
My Beko DV6120X was making squeaky noises then eventually drum stopped spinning, checked the belt and is intact I’m assuming next port of call was the rear axle or spindle?? The part that sits smack bang in middle of drum at the rear, I manually tried rotating the drum after removing the back cover and top. Is it a rear axl/spindle issue? If so can anyone offer advice?
can the dryer be wall mounted upside down above the washing machine
Hi Allan Hall,
Thank you for your enquiry. All of our dryer models are designed to be either placed on a solid surface such as the floor or on top of a washing machine using a stacking kit in situ. They cannot be mounted on the wall due to the weight of the machine.
can the dryer be hung upside down on the wall
