Choosing the right AEG washing machine for you

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.

AEG's cheapest washing machines don't have much in the way of extra features, but more expensive models have wifi-connectivity. This means you can connect to the AEG Care app on your smartphone to control and monitor washes remotely. Some also have automatic detergent dispensers, so you just fill up a large tank with liquid detergent and fabric conditioner and the washing machine only uses what it needs.

All AEG appliances come with a two-year guarantee as standard to protect against manufacturing faults and defects that occur during this warranty period.

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