5 years in and still working like a dream
This TEKA dryer was our first heat pump (replacing an older Condenser dryer) and it was our first TEKA appliance- we've since purchased a lot of their other products (Washing Machine, Coffee Machine, Oven and Cooktop). We purchased it from Masters around 5 years ago now and we are still so happy with our purchase. From a value perspective, it was hard to go past sitting at half the price of the other leading brands. Providing you keep the lint filter (in door) and the base filter clean, its really effective at drying our large loads of clothing...and we'd use it almost every day (sometimes many loads in a day) as a family of 4. It's worth reading the manual and playing around with the different programs and intensity levels (there's a lot of options!) as we've found they do work very differently depending on load size and clothing type, etc.

Stopped working in less than five years. Excellent after-sales support.
This is an amended review to account for the after-sales support I have received. I will leave my original one-star review at the bottom.
After-sales support is excellent. Both the person I emailed and the person on the phone (Sarah and Jessica respectively) were knowledgeable about the dryer, gave suggestions of what was broken, and were happy to send me the service manual and parts schematic.
Sarah also offered to send me the part that she suspected was broken gratis. This arrived two days later, and was the solution needed to get my dryer going again.
Residentia group provided excellent support for my dryer even though it was out of warranty.
My original surly review below....The dryer stopped working in less that five years. The dryer does not start instantly when the buttons are pressed, it just beeps multiple times. If I unplug it for a long time it will occasionally work. Sometimes if I press several of the front panel buttons it will start, but this has no pattern to it. Whitegoods should last longer than five years.

With a large family it is hard to keep up with all the washing and drying! Our Teka heat pump dryer is amazing and we are very happy with it! It is cheap to run and does an amazing job at drying when our washing line is just full and of course during the wet weather! Our machine runs several times a week and does not skip a beat!
Great for the Family and Wallet
I use my TEKA heat pump dryer multiple times a day. It has a great energy rating and performs amazingly. It has various settings for me to choose from and a great display showing me how long there is to go on the cycle. I would highly recommend.

Easy to use. I haven't had any problems with any types of clothing. Surprised at how good the quality is for the price. I would definitely this brand again A
Purchased in March 2018 at Bargains Online for $1,000.00.
Was a bit worried as we were looking at the bosch series 8, but could not justify the extra cost and this one does the job just fine. Have used it a few times now and its perfect. Will see how it stands up over a few years. But this is one of the few with a 3+2 year warranty.

Still going strong
We got the Midea branded version of this. We've had it for 3 years now and haven't had any problems.
The condenser works well. It does not create any humidity.
Just have to remember to clear the secondary lint filter in the bottom hatch every once in a while.
And put the dryer onto high intensity setting so it dries completely.
Been a really solid purchase. No regrets.
Purchased in February 2017 for $1,100.00.
Happy we spent a little extra on a heat-pump machine.
We have had it for ~3 years now I guess. It has been really good to us. Fantastic in an apartment, Does not create its own weather like the normal tumble driers. Would buy it again.

Bought this dryer for my wife. Used this most of the time specially during winter/rainy season. It is very cost effective. We didn’t see significant increase in our electricity bill.

Best appliance I have ever purchased
This heat pump clothes dryer is fantastic. This machine is at the lower price point for heat pump driers so I was a bit skeptical. Our laundry is tiny and does not have a window. This condenser dryer is brilliant leaves our unit completely dry, not hot air or steam at all. Dries huge loads in record time. I could put a tiny load in for 60 mins and it will automatically stop in 35mins because its senses that the clothes are dry. I can put a huge load on for 60 mins and it will add 15mins after it senses that the load is still damp. Excellent!
Replaced my Miele
I was originally keen to purchase a Fisher&Paykel based on the reviews on this website, but it wouldnt fit in my euro laundry. I settled on a Miele which the David Jones salesperson convinced me was a better choice, but ended up returning it after it constantly kept stopping, beeping and not drying properly. I've had my Teka for about a month and am SO pleased with it. I wouldnt have known about it if it wasn't for productreview.com.au, and although I was initially hesitant based on the limited reviews they all had really positive comments. The...dryer is incredibly energy efficient, super quiet, easy to use and I've had no issues with residue dampness at the end of a cycle. It's fairly easy to empty the water and lint trays. The price makes it even better - it was about 30% cheaper than the Miele (when DJ's had a sale).
We bought this dryer to replace the Electrolux vented dryer that developed a fault. We’d hardly used it as it was expensive to use. The Teka is amazing. It uses about a quarter of the power of the one it replaces. I just love it. You do have to clean 2 lint filters and empty a water tank each load, but it’s worth it. Just hope it’s more reliable than the Electrolux.
Great price for a super energy efficient dryer
This is a very low power dryer that saves money. Although it takes a little bit longer per cycle than a couple conventional dryer it is well worth it!
Although traditionally more expensive I managed to get it for a great price by using price beat with appliances online and am confident it will pay for itself once a few years.
Best dryer I have ever owner - Money saver
I did a lot of research into Heat Pump Dryers before making my purchase. This model was at the lower end of the price point, and I was dubious about purchasing it due to how cheap it is and I was not familiar with the brand. I have owned the dryer for four months and I wouldn't be without it, I will never go back to a vented dryer.
It did take a couple of weeks to get used to selecting the optimum programmes for different wash loads, but once that was sorted, the dryer consistently dries clothes thoroughly, is quiet and has no condensation...and leaves the clothes static free. I live in an apartment, where a clothes dryer is a necessity and found that I saved over $100.00 on my last electricity bill which i can only put down to the efficiency of this machine.
After 5 months of using TEKA THPD70
Before making that decision to buy this machine
countless search for reviews and price comparison if it is worth the risk.
1. I bought it from Appliance Online during their sale last July 2017 with 3 years warranty in total and free
delivery. Getting a 3 years extended warranty for a peace of mind- overall 5 years warranty.
2. Functionality- Most of the time we use MIX with highest intensity and anti- crease (1 hour and 52 mins)
tips - 1 more spin in your washing machine before you put in the dryer (18 mins full spin)
- Off peak hours electricity use also helps reduce the bills. ...
Questions & Answers
Just wondering if this is the same dryer as the Solt GGSHPD70? Is the Solt one rebadged?
How can we get the additional 2 year warranty? Is there a registration link to follow?

I use this dryer in the cycle extra cotton with high intensity, it's 4:31 minutes (the longest I believe). almost always a few of the clothes are still humid at the end of the cycle but when I run it again soon after stop beeps announcing the clothes are "dry" which are not totally dry then I have to leave some in my clothes liner. my washing machine is smaller than is not the dryer is really full. I have this dryer for probably 3 1/2 years and still can't get it to dry properly. For example, I never have got bed linen set full dry in despite sometimes running it for 2 cycles in a row) I have tried all cycles. I clean the filter regurarly, any suggestions? I read the reviews and it seems like I have another machine. winter is coming and it's always a nighmare. my email is [Contact Details Removed]
