Every fibre cleaned and protected

Advanced OKOMix technology blends detergents and then softeners with water before they enter the drum. This ensures that every fibre is cleaned and cared for with the right mix of detergent, even for shorter cycles. Every thread, every stitch, every fibre, expertly protected.

Caring for clothes, saving water and energy

ProSense technology intelligent sensors optimises and displays the estimated wash time within 30 seconds of starting the wash cycle. Whether it is a few shirts or your entire weekly laundry, the wash time, water and energy consumption adjust to ensure they are only washed for the exact amount of time required. This ensures that fabrics suffer less wear and tear, maintaining colour and texture.

Keeps your clothes looking and feeling impeccable

The steam refresh program enables you to refresh your garments without washing with detergent and water. This ensures less wear and tear on fibres so they can maintain their look and textures for longer.

The gentle way to care for wool

The Woolmark Green certification in washing will treat each item in the gentlest possible manner, meaning you can safely wash all of your hand wash only woollen garments.

AEG 8kg Front Loading Washing Machine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laundry is a breeze My new AEG washing machine was delivered recently. I already have done several loads of washing. It was quite easy to learn how to operate it even though there's a lot of complexity hidden behind the controls. Love the low water usage since we're on tank water. Love the quiet operation and spin compared to our previous machine. Love that you can wash woollen items. Love the 20 min 3 kg cycle. And the flexibility available to adjust most settings. Everything I've washed has come out well cleaned and reasonably well-dried from the spin. Hope to receive my AEG dryer soon so my laundry will be a breeze, even in the Tas winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine Exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with our purchase. Cleans our clothes extremely well and our clothes come out smelling soo clean and fresh. Love how simple it is to use and the large number of wash cycles available. It also has a great look with a large digital display. It is great to feel excited about doing laundry again. We also purchased the matching dryer and are extremely happy with this purchase as well. The stacking kit for the washer and dryer is also great and handy with the pullout shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, quality brand. I recently purchased this washing machine along with the 8000 series heat pump dryer and am pleased I did. I can wash queen size bedding with ease and the anti allergy and outdoor wash cycles are great for pet bedding and stubborn sports gear. I use the 57min OKO power if I want to speed things up and it washes well. Love that I can add forgotten items to the front loader once started before it goes into lock mode. Would definitely recommend both washer and dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but clothes quite creased Went for the AEG because it has all the features I was looking for. I'm very happy with it except the clothes are quite creased, even after reducing the spin speed and changing the wash cycle. The door doesn't open automatically once the wash cycle has finished so I am conscious that this may cause mould around the door seal in a humid climate. My previous washing machine was 17 years old, an Asko Asea. The AEG was the best option for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple operation We bought this brilliant machine almost 2 months ago. The main reason we bought it was because of the wide range of functions that are simple to operate. One of the best things is when the machine shows you how many kgs it will wash on each cycle in the time specified. Then you can refine the selection to make the cycle shorter and again it changes how many kgs it can wash. Perfect wash every time. Can’t wait to get the matching dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capacity! I purchased this washing machine a couple of months ago and am very happy with the range of wash options and it's great capacity. I love the fact that I can fit so much into my new front loader and that everything comes out nice and clean, with no white soap residue marks, well spun and not badly creased. I also bought the matching dryer which has lots of great features and does a wonderful drying job with no humidity in the air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly and reliable I have done lots of research and watched heaps of video reviews of different brands and products before purchasing the AEG washing machine and dryer package because these are something we use almost every day and for the next 5- 10 years. It's been more than a month since we bought the package, my mother in law loves it. She doesn't know English much but can use the washing machine with no drama. The dryer is even more fantastic. It turns my inlaws from negative to positive for using a dryer to dry their cloth. What she thought was using a dryer will make the cloth smell bad, shrink and be damaged. In fact, the dryer gives her a good surprise, easy use, no smell and no shrinking. The quality is solid. It is easy to tell from the one we use before. I love the dryer too because the water tank and filter are easy to clean. I highly recommend the package for families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AEG 8kg 8000 series review Needed to replace my 16 year old washing machine a few days ago and opted for the AEG 8kg 8000 series because its 5 star energy and 4 star water use rating. I like the future where it senses the weight of the load before it starts the washing cycle as this prevents me from overloading the machine. So far so good. I am really happy with my purchase and hope it performs as well as my previous machine has done.

Does this washing machine need to be connected to the hot tap or does the machine heat the water itself?

Asked by: Ange
Hi Ange. Thanks for your question. This washing machine heats it's own water, so doesn't need to be attached to a hot water tap. Hope this helps with your query.

Hi there- can you open this machine during the cycle?

Asked by: MoniB
Hi MoniB, thanks for your question. The door stays locked until the spin & drain cycle is completed. If you pause the cycle, you need to manually select the spin & drain cycle to unlock. Alternatively, the appliance will empty the water out automatically after approximately 18 hours, unlocking the door. Hope this helps!
