Product Overview

Make laundry days effortless with this tumble dryer from Smeg. With an 8kg drum, it’s ideal for medium-sized households. It uses clever heat pump technology to thoroughly dry the load while saving energy. It works by recycling hot air created inside the drum so heat isn’t wasted. Intelligent sensor drying protects clothes from over-drying by measuring the moisture in your laundry and automatically stopping the cycle when everything is dry. It also has a wool programme which uses cool air and gentle drum movements to leave your favourite jumpers and scarves looking as good as new.

Heat pump tumble dryers are super-efficient, but to save the most energy, programmes may take a little longer to dry your clothes than on standard dryers. It’s important not to overload the drum either, so they can perform at their best.

Solid looking TD

It's a first TD we ever bought, but does the job as expected. Wife is pleased enough and she quickly found this TD easy to use.

smeg tumble dryer

great product from smeg , can be used as soon as you unpack it ,easy to use with a large water container and drys cloths well

2nd time we've bought a SMEG heat pump td.

We replaced our washer dryer , with a stand alone washing m/c and this smeg heat pump tumble dryer. We bought the earlier model 3 years ago, and was good to see a newer model for sale. Moved house hence the purchase. Works really well, although we did buy a rubber mat for noise absorption.

My new best friend!

Having never owned a tumble dryer before, I don’t have much to compare this model to. However, it has transformed my life! I’m over the moon with my purchase and wish I’d bought in sooner. Life is so much easier for me now. I went for a decent brand as I like to always buy the best that I can afford. This philosophy has meant that all of our white goods and small electrical items have lasted well, without breakdowns. Hopefully, the same will apply to this latest purchase. The machine is easy to use and very good at what it does. We still need to explore some of the settings but so far, we have absolutely no complaints. The service from AO.com was fantastic and we’ll definitely use them again.

Smog dryer

This dryer looks good and works perfectly for all our needs, laundry comes out very refreshed

I wish I bought it sooner!

After years of no tumble dryer my husband finally gave in and bought me the Smeg Heated Pump Dryer after long research. I am so pleased with it I don’t know what I did before we purchased it!
