Buying Guide - Washing Machines


Washing Machine Dimensions

Whether you want a freestanding washer or one that's integrated (or built in), the first step is to make sure it fits. You can start by understanding the space you have:
Width: 60-48cm - we recommend a front-loading washer

Tip: If you have a small laundry area, consider purchasing a 2-in-1 washer dryer combo. Remember to choose a front-loadingunit if you want to stack your tumble dryer. Check out our AEG stacking kit

Washing Machine Capacity

When it comes to deciding on the capacity for your washing machine, you should consider a few things:
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 will require a larger drum for the best results. 

All AEG washing machines are equipped with ProSense technology. ProSense uses weight sensors to adjust water and energy consumption depending on the load. This saves time and money and ensures your clothes are protected. 

Quiet and quick

There are two additional things to consider when choosing a washing machine: 

Silent Running Cycles

Our washing machines maintain a noise level as low as 47 decibels. So doing laundry doesn´t disrupt the peaceful environment of your home. 

Quick Programmes

You can wash your clothes using short programmes in as fast as 20 minutes for a small load (3kg). For bigger loads, choose the OKOPower programme (on selected machines). The OKOPower programme washes clothes in 59 minutes with great results and the new MYWash programme lasts only 49 minutes. 

Smart Washing Machine

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. The app will tailor a program in response. For customized laundry care - all from your smartphone.

Matching appliances 

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

Two Machines

Washing Machine with Steam

Steam is a good choice if you´re avoiding winkles and ironing. AEG ProSteam® Technology washing machines feature the PlusSteam option that allows you to reduce wrinkles by up to a third by adding steam at the end of the wash cycle. Or you can use a seperate steam cycle as a quick and easy way to refresh rumpled clothes.  


Woolmark certification is a stamp of approval from the Woolmark Company. Rest assured that our AEG machines are gentle enough for washing wool - including delicates. 

AEG ÖKOMix washing machines are certified* by Ariel and Lenor. That means they offer optimal cleaning and distribution of fabric softener on the items you love. Every thread is given just the right treatment. Keeping your clothes feeling newer, longer.

It´s the little black dress guardian

Imagine a washing machine that you can trust to keep your colours as vibrant and blacks as true as the day you bought them. Yet never compromising on cleaning performance. Washing deeply. Thoroughly. Every time. At last, there is no need to compromise performance for care. Only AEG SoftWater Technology purifies and softens water, delivering 60 degree cleaning performance at just 30 degrees. Maintaining the colour, shape and feel of every garment. Wash after wash. It´s more than a washing machine. It´s the guardian of your clothes.

No fading, wash after wash*

Softer water, kinder to clothes. Because our advanced SoftWater Technology purifies and softens water before it enters the drum, detergents can work much more effectively at low temperatures, delivering 60°C cleaning performance at only 30°C. So colours will keep their intensity wash after wash, and black won´t fade to grey. 

*Test for colour-fastness performed on black polyester after 50 washing cycles at 30 degrees. 

Cuts the creases by one third*

ProSteam® technology cuts the creases by one third and minimizes the need for ironing. Your clothes are quickly refreshed without being exposed to the complete laundry process, protecting them from wear and tear. 

Colours love salt

Without coming into contact with your clothes, the salt activates an ion-exchange filter that softens the water and removes harsh minerals and impurities. So colours will keep their intensity wash after wash and blacks won´t fade to grey.

Meet the everyday classic preserver

Quality clothes are made to be worn, but everyday pieces need care to maintain their condition. In AEG 6000 Series washing machines, every load is measured to tailor each cycle and calculate just the right amount of water and energy the wash requires.

Cares twice as effectively

ProSense® Technology adjusts time, water and energy consumption to the size of the load, even if it is just a single shirt or your entire weekly laundry. This is thanks to specific sensors that will intelligently control the cycle settings and take care that your clothes are only washed for the exact amount of time needed. This ensures that fabrics suffer less wear and tear, maintaining colour and texture for longer. 

With ProSense® Technology you get:

Faster load detection - quickly adapts the cycle after the programme starts. 

Higher accuracy - optimises the cycle based on the textile type by detecting the load size and measuring the water absorption. 

Greater flexibility - adapts the cycle for even the smallest loads (1-2 kg).
