Get your garments looking as good as new with the range of capabilities the AEG L8WEC166R Washer Dryer possesses.

This complete laundry solution also contains steam cleaning, which significantly cuts down on creases and time spent at the ironing board.

The AEG 8000 Series benefit from OKO Mix technology, which dissolves the detergent and combines it with the softener used to make one liquid form.

This creates a blend that can deeply penetrate fibres, ensuring a thorough wash before the drying process adds the finishing touches.

An OKO Power wash and dry cycle is among the options that are accessed by control dial, which can handle up to a 5kg load.

The dedicated steam programme can be used for dried, washed or worn once laundry, with no detergent required, as an ideal follow on.

This appliance bears the Woolmark Apparel Care Blue logo, which means items with 'hand wash only' in their care instructions are safe to be used with the wool cycle.

The outdoor programme specifically treats clothes with water-repellent properties, by thoroughly cleaning the hydrophobic coating on the surface layer.

Further features are found on the digital display, which can be initiated at the push of a button. Clear indicators are also found here.

Built-in sensors enable ProSense load detection, which measures exactly how much the contents weigh and shows the results.

Automatic adjustments to time, water and temperature can be made, without compromising on productivity, to save on resources.

The temperature and spin speed, the latter going all the way up to 1600rpm, can be changed manually and there's a pause and delay start button.

The stains-prewash mode can treat very dirty laundry ahead of a programme, while Quick Wash allows to cut down on the duration.

A short anti-crease function can serve as an add-on, with timed or automatic drying options that can get clothes iron, cupboard or wardrobe ready.

This model is A rated for both washing performance and energy efficiency, with an estimated annual consumption of just 172 kWh.

Useful InformationLike most modern washer dryers, this one is cold fill only. Some older washer dryers also have a hot water intake, but in reality, little hot water ever gets into these machines on most washes. This is because hot water cools rapidly in household water pipes, and by the time it starts to run hot the washing machine has almost finished filling. This is particularly true nowadays because modern washing machines use a lot less water than ever before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant washer dryer Crap service from Currys their team know how are a waste of money and their extended guarantee is useless

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly effective! I've had this machine for nearly two months, and I love it. It washes and dries really well, clothes coming out clean and totally dry. It has lot of options to tailor the washing settings to your specific load. It can take quite a long time to wash and dry, but becuase of the huge capacity this has not been a problem, even in our very busy houseful of 8 people including a messy baby and toddler! The spin setting is not as quiet as I would have like, but it is definitley livable. Overall I love this washer dryer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My opinion Overall a excellent machine,quiet easy to use and well laid out aesthetically pleasing . The only negative is that the steam function does not eliminate the need for ironing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the dryer, not so much the washing machine... The dryer is excellent and it made our life much easier. It dries 4-5 kg load reasonably fast. On the other hand, the wash performance and stain removal is only average and it takes forever to wash a fairly small load of laundry. Our biggest gripe, however, is complete unpredictability of the cycle length. You just don't know when it is going to finish as the machine keeps adjusting the time throughout the cycle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent washer dryer Having switched from a 12kg wash / 8Kg dry LG we thought this might not cope with our daily usage. However this machine is superb. Everything so far works as you would expect. Clothes come out bone dry. So many options. Nice and quiet. Can’t fault it. Had it two weeks and it does at least one programme a day and at the weekends several. Have had machines that don’t dry very well. This is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT, SO FAR Only bought on 1 March. Seems to be of really good quality - can Miele really be worth twice the price for less capacity? Mainly used on Cotton programme at 40 degrees - good that you can select temperature for the programmes. Very quiet in operation, washing much drier after spinning than our old Zanussi 1400rpm spin washer/dryer. With 5-year guarantee, hope this lasts as well as the Zannussi. Very pleased so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features but... Good features and very quiet but progamme cycles are long and build quality not what I would have expected. Filter drain door did not close properly and had to call engineer to replace catch. Drying times seem long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor fluff removal If you choose a programme with tumble drying clothes come out covered in fluff. It’s not a question of load size either it happens on small loads. I regret buying this very expensive machine.
