AEG - Heat pump dryer - T8DSC849R

Bespoke protection for your clothes

The programmes in our unique AbsoluteCare® system precisely control the movement and temperature of the drying drum. Woolens are kept flat against the drum to replicate flat drying. Outdoor garments are given just the right amount of heat to restore the full functionality of their waterproof membrane. Every fabric gets the right movement and temperature to dry it completely, while preserving its quality, look and feel.

Safe, low temperatures

AEG SensiDry technology draws moisture out of fabrics at half the temperature of conventional tumble dryers, without significantly extending the drying time. This ensures that fabrics are never subject to unnecessary heat. Your clothes will keep the textures they had the day you bought them, for longer. And the low temperature helps you save energy, too.

AEG - Heat pump dryer - T8DSC849R

Saving you time and energy every day

Our dryers feature ProSense technology, which uses advanced humidity and temperature sensors to adjust the drying time and energy consumption for every size of load - whether it’s a day’s or a week’s worth of washing. This saves time and energy, while gently protecting the clothes that you love and wear every day.

Fuss-free filter for efficiency

Only AEG dryers feature the ÖKOFlow Filter System, an extremely efficient filter that is easy to reach and clean. Conventional dryers have multiple filters. If you don’t clean them all, energy consumption increases. With only one filter, an AEG machine dries every load effortlessly and maintains its effectiveness and energy efficiency.

Shorter drying cycles, better care

Thanks to improved air flow design, AEG dryers dry faster and more efficiently than conventional heat pump driers. So your clothes are better cared for even though the drying cycles are shorter.


Prevent your clothes from shrinking. With the AbsoluteCare® system you will dare to dry garments you never thought possible – even your softest wool sweater. Our Woolmark certified tumble dryers tailor the drum movement and drying temperature to your garment. Your wool sweaters retain their shape and texture, no shrinkage guaranteed.

Nice Dryer With Low Running Costs

by Colin106 on 05 September 2017

I have had the AEG T8DSC849R heat pump tumble dryer for a couple of months now and given it a pretty good workout drying all the families washing. First impressions – It looks good – the brushed steel of the front panel nicely matching in with the rest of the kitchen. Installation is easy because it does doesn't need ducting out and in operation it’s very quiet so even drying clothes late in the evening for the next day isn’t a problem. Next thing to like is the size of the door. It’s huge. And behind it is a drum that’s just as big – it’s virtually the whole width of the machine so it easily swallows big items like one of the kids single bed duvet and would probably dry a double bed duvet without to much problem as well. Use wise, it’s simple to select one of the programs on the large dial, make any adjustments with the touch panel such as level of dryness and press start. All of the programs display an approximate time that they will take to complete, and as the cycle runs the machine monitors various sensors to optimise drying and keep the cycle as short as possible. So - How well it dries. AEG in it’s marketing makes a great deal of it’s Absolute Care technology for washing and drying. They have gained Woolmark accreditation meaning that hand wash woollen items can be machined washed and dried in it’s machines. My daughter has a hand wash woollen throw on her bed that she absolutely loves and till now has forbidden me to wash because she didn't want it to stretch or go ‘weird’. I’m happy to report that after washing it in my new AEG washing machine on the wool program, the dryer did a great job – spinning the drum faster than the usual programs so that the contents stayed ‘stuck’ to the side of the drum and didn’t tumble around which is what causes the fibres to get matted. It has no stretching either and it still folds square. So now it smells better and she still loves to snuggle under the throw. Another way to tell that the dryer is being as gentle as possible with the washing is that the filter doesn't seem as full of fluff from the clothes at the end of the cycle as with my old non AEG driers. The standard level of dryness is what AEG calls cupboard dry which takes a little getting used to – as the washing comes out nice and warm but a little damp. I've found that if it’s taken out and folded within a short while of the cycle finishing the dampness quickly evaporates and the clothes don’t need ironing (leastways in my house anyway!) I have used about half of the programs so far including wool and duvet, but it’s the synthetic or mixed programs which take about an hour that get the most use. Everything comes out nice, fresh and easy to fold. Finally – Running costs. The machine has an energy rating of A++ which is impressive for a tumble dryer. It’s mainly down to the heat pump technology which recycles as much energy as possible. Well with no other changes since getting the AEG tumble dryer at the end of June and the AEG washing machine mid August our average electricity usage has gone down according to the Smart Meter. It also comes with a full 5 year parts and labour warranty so it fixes my costs for the next 5 years. To recap - As a single working dad to 3 girls of school age, I wanted a machine that was simple to use, quick and quiet so I can run it in the evening if I have to, economical and have a good warranty. This AEG machine more than fits my criteria which is why I give it top marks.
