Choosing an AEG washing machine

Many AEG washing machines have a drum capacity of 8kg or 9kg, making them roomy enough for most households. Like most brands, AEG focuses on producing freestanding models. However, there are some built-in AEG washing machines available if you're in the market for a machine that sits behind a cupboard door.

Most AEG washing machines are white, although it's possible to find silver variants of some models.
