Coming with 16 programmes this heat pump condenser tumble dryer from Smeg will definitely be able to keep up with your drying needs. Tailored programmes for certain items of clothing such as shirts and jeans means that this tumble dryer doesn't damage your clothing as it alters the drying temperature to the appropriate level.

Delay timer

Having a 24hr time delay feature provides great convenience, as you can set your drying to start at any time meaning you can do your laundry to suit your schedule.

You don't need much - if you already have a PayPal account then usually you'll just have a few questions to answer, if you don't have a PayPal account you just need to register with them.

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method".
