Looks like a good price for this, especially if you get the cashback on top. A couple of other places offering it for a similar price, but as far as i can see, delivery on top ruins it by about £20 or so.

Reviews look very good as well, so all in all not bad at all if you're after a new machine.

Delivery is showing as Next day for me just now with "FREE" so worth hopping on that if you can. Other dates available for free del too though

Laundry days are made easier and more economical with this AEG washer dryer. Using Optisense technology, every wash or drying cycle is tailored perfectly to the load.

As the formerly proud owner of AEG appliances, whatever the price, I now wouldn't touch one again with stolen money.

If it stays working, like any appliance - great. My last drier was good for over 6 years, unfortunately this one isn't so good, and if it stops working you have to endure the torment of "Serviceforce," The AEG set-up repairs "service," and I use the description of service very reluctantly. It depends on the individual companies which constitute Serviceforce. They claim a lot, but carry out very little, it has taken more than 6 weeks so far and it is still not fixed, an "appointment" is still more than a week away, but as there have been many no-shows, I doubt it will actually happen - so far only one part replaced (they carry no spares at all, so it has to be ordered and that's very hit and miss), but it's still bust. The "engineer" from Eastern Europe had little English, but far less knowledge of what the fault code meant, other than what I told him from an Internet search!

AEG do not care one little bit. John Lewis the retailer cares the same amount. (What has happened to John Lewis, the wheel really has come off their wagon.)

Pledges and on-line claims are made, stuff like same day service, and 3 hour time-slots, it's all fantasy it doesn't happen, it is a scam.

The same set-up is used for Electrolux and Zanussi too, so you will get this service with them too.

Buy at your peril, I thought it was a quality brand (and I was buying from a quality retailer).

I am far from the only one to experience this sort of problem:

and lots more.

Good service is all in the past.

Hot from me. Can't speak for the service (I have a 5 year warranty which I've never needed to use) but have had my AEG Lavamat washer/dryer for a few years now and am consistently pleased with it's performance. It is whisper quiet so much of the time that I think it's finished when it hasn't!! As a machine, I'd thoroughly recommend it, especially at this price.
bit useless drying capacity

Electrolux bought both AEG and the bankrupt Zanussi in the 1990's, and, ServiceForce, Electrolux's UK servicing operation, took on the servicing of both AEG and Zanussi shortly afterwards.

Ours is over 6 years (I think). Only complaint was that the dimensions was wrong on their web site years ago, having a galley kitchen, I had to cut the kitchen door jam off to get it in
Spec looks the same from first glance although display is updated.

Thanks OP.. ours is being delievered Tuesday

Got an AEG recently, the L75670WD, for £500~. Overall good, but really bad knocking noises. Far worse than the crappy washer it replaced. Seems the weight distributing function is pretty poor. Had a guy from AEG come look at it and said it was working as expected..

That's precisely what I would expect from them, unless it explodes into fragments and burns the house down, you are stuck with it the way it is. Even then you are likely to get blamed......... for putting clothes in it.

Wholeheartedly agree with you, again based on experience of the AEG brand over many years. What used to be a quality brand - very much on a par with Bosch and Siemens - is now more on a level with Beko.

The name AEG still suggests quality and commands a highish price. Believe me, it isn't quality, and it isn't worth anything more than a base-level Beko-style price.

It isn't even that good... it is an organisation it is merely a number of individual companies that use the name and trade as Serviceforce, and they also operate without that name as individual companies.

If you get nowhere with one, my advise is move house ;-) Even then check who holds the company with the franchise in the new area, some trade with different company names and same directors!
Do not buy it! I purchased one from John Lewis 2.5 years ago and it developed very bad noise over the time. It became even worse with drum going loose soon after 2 year warranty expired. After 2.5 years after purchase I had to dispose of it and purchase a different brand as it started soiling my linen with rusty smears and the noise was unbearable.
got this model, and its TERRIBLE! can't be compared to the old AEG quality, I have most of my appliances in home made by AEG because that was a brand I trusted...not anymore.. this is cheap made in china stuff just with an AEG badge, luckily currys took it back under the 14days.

went for an customer-returned john lewis model ( which is an actual AEG,not made in china,just rebadged for john lewis for about 240 ( retails at 600 new) and its brilliant.

You'll probably find this is a rebadged zannussi and made in Italy rather than Germany like aeg used to be. Better off with the Miele for similar money

I agree. Buy a genuine quality brand. Then you shouldn't have problems.
I bought a Bosch over 12 years ago and have not wasted one second of my time or one penny of my money on repairs as it has worked faultlessly. Which is exactly how it should be with washing machines.

12 years ago? It might as well be in another Universe... they have all changed now, I have great doubts ANY of these "premium" brands will see 12 years now :-(

Sadly, I think you're right. They're all being built now with components with a design life of considerably less than 12 years. 5 to 7 years would be nearer the mark, and a lot less than that for the cheaper ones. The one exception is Miele, and that's going to cost rather more than the others.

With their cheaper (albeit not very much cheaper) models with just 2 year warranties, they seem to have joined the rest and slashed the quality too.

That's bad news if they have. The best approach with Miele is to go for the lowest priced machine with a 10 year warranty included - but we're talking around £950 for that at the moment.

That was my plan to replace my 10yo Siemens machine, but next door's 4 recent visits to fix their 2yo Miele has put me right off!
