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 B rated for both washing performance and energy efficiency, with an estimated annual consumption of just 172 kWh.
