Visually its a cracking looking machine, with a minimalistic user interface, just a dial and two buttons and a touchscreen that making choosing the cycle you need super easy and totally customisable. The loading Door is lovely and big so it makes loading into the ‘massive' 9KG drum really easy. The soap draw is nicely layed out with easy access to the salt draw that softens the water depending on what type of hardness you have. Included is litmus test so you can be really accurate with the PH values meaning you don’t waste salt. I have to be honest I was sceptical as to the WiFi function, and didn’t really see the point – but I’m a convert! Its so easy to set the function straight from your phone, throw the washing, powder/liquid and conditioner in and tap start! It will also send you reminder that your washings done which is handy as it runs pretty much silently through all the functions even the 1600rpm spin cycle. Id also recommend the app for discovering how to care for your laundry including how to deal with pretty much any type of stain you might encounter. With having such a huge capacity I’m finding I can do a whole weeks washing in two loads and some washes don’t need the works either as it seems to do a great job even on the 20 minute cycle. I love the powder premix function meaning the water is washing from the get go and not getting stuck as grains in my clothes. It’s even removed marks on my ski gear that I could never shift before. Like most men I’m allergic to ironing – but with this its made my life so much easier as it doesn’t seem to crease my cloths as much (again possibly down to the size of the drum). Overall its a cracking washing machine, that goes way beyond any machine I’ve owned in the past and should wash my garments better while saving me money due to it being A+++ rated. Very impressed.
Softer water, kinder to clothes
All mains water contains minerals that can be harsh on fabrics. These AEG washing machines are the first in the world with the technology to remove them. The ion-exchange filtering system optimises the water entering the drum for detergents and softeners to work at maximum efficiency, even at the lowest temperatures. Gentle enough to keep fabrics feeling soft and colours looking their absolute best.
