Replacement for 16 year old AEG which sadly is now end of life

Following the demise of our previous AEG (which lasted 16 years) we decided to stick with the same brand. So far, so good. Nice and quiet with plenty of options for all types of washes. It's a 10kg model which still fits in the same slot as our previous machine.

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.

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.

Very quiet and worth every penny

We looked at a few before deciding on this one. The others were missing rinse hold and/or hand wash. This one has both but worth spending another £300? Glad we did. 5 year warranty and lower running cost swung it for us. It takes a little longer to wash (drying takes longer as expected on a washer/dryer) but clothes come out what I can only describe as 'living soft'. You can trust the machine to do the thinking. It weighs your clothes taking guesswork out of equation. Very pleased.

A gem

I have had my new addition a week and what a gem! First time washer dryer for me. The instruction manual confused me at first as it isn’t basic enough for my understanding.So I used YouTube with the manual and found that’s much easier. It’s just nice to put washing on and come back a couple of hours later and it’s all clean and dry (just wish it could iron the hot cotton wash) Advice- use a damp cloth after tumbling round the door frame and drum to remove any fluff. It’s early days but so far I’m loving the ease of my laundry.

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.

It’s really worth it

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

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?
