Product Overview

Give your clothes superior care with this AEG heat pump tumble dryer. With its 8kg drum, it’s perfect for medium-sized households. The intelligent AbsoluteCare® system allows you to dry mixed fabrics together without having to worry about damage. It controls drum movements and temperature inside during the cycle, to thoroughly and gently dry every fabric type. You can protect your favourite knitted items too, with the handy wool programme. This uses faster spin speeds to keep clothes flat against the drum – giving the same gentle results as flat-drying. It also has a silk programme which mimics natural air drying to look after delicates during the cycle.

Heat pump tumble dryers are super-efficient, but to save the most energy, programmes may take a little longer to dry your clothes than on standard dryers. It’s important not to overload the drum either, so they can perform at their best.

Fantastic and efficient tumble dryer

This is a wonderful tumble dryer. The heat pump technology means that you do not need a vent or a hole in your wall, you just need to empty out the water that collects in the compartment inside the machine. An 8kg drum capacity is ample for a family of four and also the running of a B&B. I have found that bed linen very rarely needs ironing after it has been in the tumble dryer when I use the anti-crease setting. It is not a silent tumble dryer, but is certainly quieter than our old one. The ProSense technology ensures that the load dries efficiently as it adjusts the time remaining on the programme based on the weight of the load. Overall it's a great tumble dryer. Works well and efficiently.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: None

Amazing Dryer, energy efficient, great features, fantastic technology and stylish too

I have not owned a heat pump tumble dryer before. The one we had was a vented dryer so it has different features. The AEG 8000 series dryer is amazing. It is a condensing dryer which means that there is no need to vent externally as the water is collected in the water container which is really easy to empty. However, if you don't want to empty the water container, you can connect the drainage pipe that is provided to automatically drain the water into your home drainage. The dryer has Prosense Technology which makes you feel that you are in a completely different world in terms of dryers. It uses sensors to determine the load weight and dryness and will adjust the time to dry, and weight accordingly. This can save a lot of energy. It has an A++ rating which means this dryer is very cheap to run. It has an 8kg drum capacity which is suitable for a medium-sized home. As a family of 4 this is perfect for us. It comes with several different programs to choose from, which hopefully simplifies your life as each presets various values for the wash. You don't need to make adjustments. However certain programs allow the dry time and dryness level to be altered. We have tried a few of the programs and the clothes have come out pretty well. There were a few occasions when the clothes were still damp so I had to extend the time. I think this is related to the type of clothes you are mixing together to be dried. I have found it better when you put the same type and thickness of clothes together, for example putting just shirts and light tops together in one cycle. I think the results are then better. The bed linen program is very good. I have tried this twice and the sheets came out dry with no creases. This is another feature I wanted to mention. The anti-crease option, which prevents creasing at the end of the drying cycle is great. It really makes a difference. Some shirts came out like they had been ironed already. I was impressed. Another important feature for families with small kids is the child lock. This feature is a must to have. My youngest daughter is 2 years old and tries to play with the buttons all the time but this feature helped us a lot. It is not cheap but the price is understandable if you take into consideration all the features that it has. I thought it is good in terms of noise too. If you are not happy with this you can select a quiet mode and also mute the end of cycle beeps! Great right? This dryer is very stylish yet modern, so it is a perfect match. Overall, I'm very pleased with this product. I really like this dryer and I will, of course, recommend it. So, thank you AEG for such a fantastic product!

Pros: Childproof Lock, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet Cons: Expensive
