Buying guide - Tumble Dryers


Energy Efficient Tumble Dryer

AEG offers a wide range of tumble dryer from B to A+++ rated. (A+++ is the most energy efficient and will have the greatest impact on energy costs.) Sophisticated heat pump technology can save up to 40% on energy compared to standard condensers, making it a cost-effective solution. 

Dry smarter thanks to ProSense which ensures the best energy consumption by quickly adapting the cycle to the load size. Choose a machine with an inverter motor. They're gentler on the drum and fan and can keep your dryer running longer. The result: shorter drying times and more consistent results. 

Tip: Don't overfill your dryer. If you leave room for your clothes to "breathe", they'll dry faster. 

Tumble Dryer Dimensions

The first step in choosing a tumble dryer is ensuring you have the space for it. 
Width: 60cm - A standard tumble dryer will fit your space.
Width: < 60cm - A compact dryer is perfect for smaller spaces. Hang it on a wall to maximise your space. Alternatively, if you have a standard front-loaded washer, you can stack a standard dryer on top. 

Tip: Running out of space? Consider buying a compact 2-in-1 washer dryer combo.

Tumble Dryer Capacity

When you think of capacity, it's often in terms of how many kilos of laundry you can fit into your machine. But there's more to consider: 
Household size: large families versus single 
Habits: how many times a week do you wash?
Type and size of wash items: For example: bedlinens, duvets, and curtains require a larger drum for the best results.

All AEG dryers are equipped with ProSense technology. ProSense uses advanced humidity and temperature sensors to adjust energy consumption for loads large and small. 


Our most advanced AEG tumble dryers cover 93 percent of all fabric types with delicated programmes for blends, synthetics, denim, cotton, wool, silk, down, lace and other delicates with programs including: 

  • Black delicates

    Our wool programme offers a no shrinkage guarantee compared to flat drying. It's so effective, Woolmark has certified a range of our AEG dryers. 

    Drying your silks in our machine results in less wrinkling compared to air drying. 

  • Houdini Jacket

    Help your favourite ski jacket stay new season after season. Use our Outdoor program and restore your clothes' water repellency better than air drying. 

  • Orange down jacket
    Down Apparel

    Use this programme to protect the appearance of down jackets and preserve their thermal insulation by up to 30 percent compared to air drying. 

  • Grey duvets

    Duvets can be difficult to dry. That's why we designed a program to handle bigger items like duvets and sheets.

Matching appliances

If you'd like to "match" your tumble dryer to your washing machine, our AEG models are made to pair. So you can stack them, or install them side-by-side and optimise your laundry space.

Tumble Dryer with Steam

ProSteam uses steam as a quick and easy way to refresh creased clothes so they're ready to wear. The short, gentle program reduces creases in dry fabrics. 

Sensor Dryers

Every AEG dryer in our 6000, 7000 and 8000 range features ProSense technology. Advanced humidity and temperature sensors detect when fabrics are dry and stop the program. ProSense saves time and energy and protects items from over drying. AEG's 3D Scan technology is available for 9000 series models. The unique sensor detects humidity on the surface and the inside of items. The result: fabric - from wool to silk and even down - is treated with precision and care. 

Smart Tumble Dryers

With the My AEG Care App, connect your laundry appliances to your phone for a smarter, faster way to care for your wash. Simply open the app and choose the temperature, fabric type and colour. And the app will tailor a program in response. For customized laundry care - all from your smartphone.

Save Space and Time

Line drying demands more space than tumble drying. And wrinkles fabrics which results in more ironing. AEG tumble dryers are much faster than line drying. Instead of spending valuable time hanging and collecting your wash, you'll enjoy 365 hassle-free drying days a year. 


Woolmark certification is a stamp of approval from the Woolmark Company. Rest assured our dryers are gentle enough for everything from wool to delicates.
