AEG - Freestanding washer dryer - L8WEC166R

Long-lasting protection for washing and drying

The patented ÖKOMix Technology guarantees the most even washing and drying process in one go. Unlike other machines, ours pre-mixes detergents and softener to their most effective blends separately in water before they enter the drum. Meaning both are fully dissolved and activated when they reach the load. Making distribution more efficient than in any other washer dryer on the market. Ensuring that all fibres are penetrated and that the load is prepared for more even drying. So that every single part of every single item gets complete protection in less time.

Dual technology for sensitive care

Our DualSense Technology tailors the temperature and motion of the drum to different fabrics and adjusts programmes accordingly. Lower heat and controlled movement mean that everything from delicates to outdoor wear can be carefully and washed in one go. Both washing and drying cycles are certified by Woolmark Blue to safely clean even hand-wash only woollens in one process. For outdoor wear, a dedicated wash cycle cleans and protects technical fabrics to preserve their textures over time; and a dedicated dry cycle works to restore water repellency.

Adjusted cycles for absolute convenience

ProSense Technology® automatically adjusts washing and drying times to the size of the load. Enabling convenient and economical cycles – saving on time, energy and water – whether the load is small or big.

SMOOTHEN WITH STEAM FOR LESS IRONING

The option to quickly refresh clothes without putting them through comprehensive cycles also means they stand the test of time with less exposure to temperature and motion.

Love the dryer, not so much the washing machine...

by Daniela on 27 July 2019

The dryer is excellent and it made our life much easier. It dries 4-5 kg load reasonably fast. On the other hand, the wash performance and stain removal is only average and it takes forever to wash a fairly small load of laundry. Our biggest gripe, however, is complete unpredictability of the cycle length. You just don't know when it is going to finish as the machine keeps adjusting the time throughout the cycle!

Excellent washer dryer

by AllanF on 19 April 2019

Having switched from a 12kg wash / 8Kg dry LG we thought this might not cope with our daily usage. However this machine is superb. Everything so far works as you would expect. Clothes come out bone dry. So many options. Nice and quiet. Can’t fault it. Had it two weeks and it does at least one programme a day and at the weekends several. Have had machines that don’t dry very well. This is brilliant.
