Washing our clothes is one of the (many) chores that we dread. The rattling of the washing machine gets on our nerves, making it impossible to relax – something which has grown even more annoying as we’ve had to spend an increasing amount of time at home during lockdown.
Which is why there is one household appliance that is high on our wish-list: The AEG Freestanding Washing Machine.
Why we rate it
The AEG Freestanding Washing Machine has an A+++ Energy rating and B-rated spin efficiency.
This design has a selection of wash settings: from duvet wash, cotton and eco-friendly, to wool, delicates and a quick wash.
It can hold up to 8kg and uses ProSense technology, which works by weighing each load and tailoring the cycle automatically, which helps to save water and energy.
AEG’s Washing Machine also features a ProTex gentle drum, which ensures your clothes do not snag and are protected during the wash.
What we love most is it is currently reduced in price at John Lewis & Partners. It now costs £349, down from £499.99.
What the reviews say
The Freestanding Washing Machine has been praised for its array of wash settings and quiet spin cycle by customers.
Here’s what reviewers say:
“Very quiet, plenty of washing options and good capacity.”
“So far so good – it’s quiet and washes well. Ive just got to get used to the best programmes for me.”
“Oh My Gosh it is the quietest washing machine I have ever used and I have usually purchased second hand and new washing machines before now.”
“My 3rd AEG washing machine. The first lasted 21 years, the second 17 years, so there was no way I was choosing anything else. This machine has everything I hoped for and more. Quiet, efficient and with more options than I have ever had. Highly recommended and excellent value for money.”
“This is a really good quality machine, has a big drum and is very easy to use. It also has a good spin dry so clothes are easy to dry once out of the machine.”
