Flawed but still quality

I have gone back and forth whether to rate this 2 or 3 stars so I’d like to give it 2.5, 50 percent, satisfactory. The main reason for the low score is that the aeg 7000 9kg has the same main specs 1600 spin, steam etc and actually more useful features such as anti-allergy and a 1 hour wash/dry which this doesn’t? The okopower 4 hour wash/dry is pointless as you can set something similar manually. You can’t set a 1 hour wash dry so why not include it especially when the lower cheaper model has the feature???!! The okomix technology is again pointless. It makes a lot of noise and dilutes your liquid and conditioner . Now our clothes don’t smell as fresh as our previous Samsung washer dryer had them. Only way around this is to add something like unstoppables to the drum. Again the 7000 doesn’t have this and I believe the clothes coming out of that will smell fresher. So for the extra you get okomix and 5 years guarantee. Save yourself the cash and get the 7000. It has more features and is essentially the same performance apart from okomix. Of course the machine does have some pros and I’ll list them below: Pros: 1. It looks really good and suits our modern kitchen. 2. It feels quality. Had a good look and feel around other big name models in the stores and it feel the most solid and robust. 3. The dryer is better than our old Samsung one and needs less time to dry. 4. It’s range of washes are good but nothing the 7000 doesn’t have. Cons: 1. It’s noisy. Anyone posting a review this is quiet then I’ve either got a faulty model or you’ve come from a washing machine about 30 years old. The wash is slightly less noisy than the Samsung on a 1600 spin but the pumps and drain noises are very loud. On the dry the Samsung was miles quieter as it only drained once every 10 mins or so. This does a drain every second for whatever reason I dont know? It’s extremely annoying and makes the drying programme obnoxiously loud. 2. Lack of any quick wash or quick wash/dry again the lesser model has this why not the more expensive? 3. Okomix weakens washing liquid and conditioner thus clothes smell less clean. 4. It’s too big for standard bench sizes and pushing it back too far crushes the draining pipe. (Same issue with Samsung maybe it’s just washer dryers in general) 5. You get less features than a lesser model? Makes you feel why did I spend more and get the 8000. Honestly when looking at the two together I naively thought the 8000 would do everything the 7000 could and more so shelled out the extra. I was wrong.

Perfect for My Needs

I am a long standing fan of AEG washing machines and this one certainly does not change my opinion that they are one of the best manufacturers. Very simple to use and the results have been brilliant. Having the built in dryer function means a one stop process with very little creasing. All clothes have come out tangle free and easy to iron where necessary.

It’s really worth it

Pricy but worth it. It’s a massive time saver in household tasks

Simple and versatile

Good variety of cycles. Simple controls. Even extremely muddy clothes are coming out spotless. Large capacity (what I had considered to be a large load is only about 75% of full load capacity). Very pleased indeed with this product so far.

Perhaps the quietest washing machine?

This is without doubt one of the quietest machines available. Super silent even on the fastest spins with a full load. A wide variety of programmes which wash your clothes etc really well. What’s not to like about this machine. Oh, by the way, did I say this machine is quiet?

Very good machine

The washing function on the machine is great- detergent etc pre mixed and clothes come out well. The spin is very quiet, but very effective as clothes are not very wet when finished. The drum is also a great size. Still trying to work out best ways to use drying function on different items (mixed results of not dry enough or dried too long).

Impressively Great Product

I moved house recently and left behind my trusty AEG washer/dryer which was 14 years old. I hesitated buyer the top end of the AEG current range (Spring 2018) as reviews were a little mixed on the noise. However, my unit is in a cupboard and so I don’t hear it that much. I like the quick wash options as well as the fact that this machine takes a bigger load. I’m still a fan of the 1600 spin and don’t see any issue with creasing. The fluff is collected in a neat and easily accessible part of the machine. Overall, expensive at the top end but I’m happy with it and hoping this machine lasts as long and without problems as my last one. I should say that I’m a single household occupier so perhaps not using the machine as frequently as mostly family households.

Mack Bell

Firstly, the product does not fit under the average kitchen work top. The front top design is CURVED & protrudes.. a .bad design feature. In pulling out the draw it has broken. You cannot therefore put washing powder & Conditioner in the drawer. I asked for a replacement drawer 3 months ago & I have still not Received it !!. Secondly, the QUICK WASH programme is much too long at 50 minutes .
