Benefits

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.

AEG - Freestanding washer dryer - L8WEC166R

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 washed and dried 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.

AEG - Freestanding washer dryer - L8WEC166R

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.

AEG - Freestanding washer dryer - L8WEC166R

EXCELLENT RESULTS USING LESS TIME AND ENERGY

Our ÖKOPower NonStop 4h/5kg programme offers the most efficient washing and drying cycles in the shortest time possible. Designed to wash and dry 5kg in four hours, it represents the most economical performance available on the market today, saving both time and energy.

AEG - Freestanding washer dryer - L8WEC166R

SMOOTHEN WITH STEAM FOR LESS IRONING

The steam programme from relaxes the fibres in your clothes to reduce wrinkles and avoid ironing. Ensuring they look and feel better for longer. 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.

Avoid for the money better quality elsewhere

by Essvee on 27 June 2021

I’ve had this machine for 2 years. I paid a premium thinking this would last trouble free for many years. How mistaken I was. The heat element broke and now it won’t spin. Just a joke.

Hello Essvee,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review regarding your AEG Washer Dryer.

I am saddened to hear that your appliance has developed a fault which has caused the heating element to break and now the appliance will not spin.

If your appliance is still covered under the manufactured warranty we would strongly advise you contacting our consumer care department on 03445 612 612 and have them arrange for an engineer to inspect and repair this appliance.

However if you are now outside the manufactured warranty, we would suggest contacting our After Markets department on 03445 610 529 to discuss out fixed price repair options.

Washing

by JAH on 26 May 2021

This machine is great, very smart, well made and the controls are easy to use. The only down side is the dual use of the touch buttons can, at first be a little strange.

All Good

by LPJR on 11 February 2021

We have had the washer/dryer 6 weeks now. Our old washing was a 10+old budget machine that sounded like a freight train in the last years. So I think any new washing machine would have impressed, but we decided to pay a little more and go for a quality washer dryer.
From the unboxing it had that feel of a quality build. We liked the design, the silver trim is a nice touch. Not over the top like some designs.
We have been impressed with all the washing cycles used so far. Clothing coming out in much better condition than our old machine. Wool cycle works very well. I like the feature that weighs your clothing and then tells you how much detergent to put in.
It is soo quiet compared to the old machine. At first we kept checking it was on. Noise picks up on the spin as you would expect but still not that loud for the 1200 spin. The cotton 1600 spin is a little noisier but overall very impressed with the sound levels.
We have never had a washer dryer before. We chose this for the washing and drying of technical clothing. We have washed down jackets and water proof coats and this has impressed the most. The down Jacket kept its fluffyness and came out dry.
We are still playing around with the quick cycles, there could be improvements here but overall very impressed.
Last test will be reliability. Unable to comment on that yet but hoping for the best.
