Tumble Dryers on Finance

Drying clothes in the UK can be difficult thanks to the lack of sun and uncertain weather. A tumble dryer makes it much easier to dry clothes, towels and bedding quickly and easily.

However, as a tumble dryer gets a lot of use it won't last forever. By buying a tumble dryer on finance from a catalogue you can replace a broken or old dryer for minimal initial outlay using a spread the cost payment plan such as pay weekly or pay monthly.


AO is one of the largest online retailers specialising in home electricals including tumble dryers and washing machines. AO have many of the products on their website available for next day delivery, which means you will be able to replace the dryer in no time at all.

This should avoid the washing piling up too much. You can pay for orders with a credit or debit card. You can also apply for attractive finance deals. If you are spending over £250 in a single purchase then you can apply for a buy now pay later finance plan.

No deposit is required for any of the finance plans available from AO.com. The interest rates are quite low, typically lower than if you bought on a credit card.


Argos sell lots of different tumble dryers and washing machines. These are available for home delivery at a time and date to suit you. If you want to spread the cost and pay monthly then you can do so interest free using the Argos card. An Argos card can be used like a credit card, but also has buy now pay later plans available.

If you spend over £150 in one transaction then you could have interest free finance for 6 months. To avoid interest you will need to repay the entire loan by the end of the 6 months.


Littlewoods is another catalogue store which sells lots of different tumble dryers. As well as paying for the tumble dryer with a credit card, you can apply for finance packages. Littlewoods have very fair prices and often run good promotions. Littlewoods offer 0% interest free finance on pay weekly spread the cost plans although if you have bad credit or no credit history you may find it difficult to get approved.

As long as you are spending over £100 then you can apply for a whole year of interest free finance. This is an excellent way of spreading the cost.


Currys have lots of tumble dryers in store that you can actually look at. Some of the tumble dryers are also available to collect from the store, although you will have to ask whether or not this is possible.

Currys have a number of different finance options, including simply 10, where a 10% deposit needs to be paid and then 10 further installments. They also offer buy now pay later plans which can spread the cost out over up to 12 months.

Top Tips

If you've already been rejected for credit it's normally best to wait awhile before you re-apply elsewhere.

Always compare different catalogues and stores to find the best prices.

Always read the terms and conditions in full and understand exactly how much you'll have to pay back.
