The AEG L6FBG842R freestanding washing machine gets top marks for allergy and quick settings. But what else?
Best features?Weighing of loads ensures this machine can adjust washing times to minimise water and electricity use. It has an Eco TimeSave for an energy-efficient wash that’s as speedy as possible, too. There’s a 20 minute wash for a 3kg load that could get you out of a tight spot, too, and a programme for outdoor items and an anti-allergy cycle among the selection.
The verdictsWe reckon this is a good value buy with a large enough drum size for many family homes, and all the cycles you’d want, including if you have someone with allergies in your household. Although it’s a tad noisier than some of the AEG machines we recommend, it still does very well for quietness.
On the AEG site, it’s an overall 4.5 out of five for the machine from pleased reviewers. They commented on its large door – making access easy – the quietness of the maximum 1400rpm spin, and the effectiveness of the spin in getting clothes as dry as possible.
For those who purchased this model at Currys, the average verdict was 8.8 out of 10 with build quality, ease of use, and the noise level getting the highest ratings. The machine’s users were happy with the clear and easy to operate control panel, the ample washing options, and appreciated the 20 minute quick wash.

Want a quiet washing machine? The AEG L8FEC866R freestanding washing machine is a good bet.
Best features?This machine’s quieter than many and gets a Quiet Mark accreditation for its prioritisation of noise reduction. It’s designed to dissolve detergent and fabric softener before it goes into the drum for better distribution and cleaning results. You can complete a wash cycle in 59 minutes, too, to save time and energy.
The verdictIt’s a big thumbs-up from us for this machine’s noise level because even in a utility room, but especially in an open-plan scheme, a washer can be an unmissable presence.

If someone in your home has dust mite allergies, you’ll like the cycle that ensures the temperature is constantly above 60°C to get rid of them.

Best features?Hate ironing? You’ll love the fact that this machine has a steam feature that can be used at the end of a cycle to reduce creasing.

You can select both options together to get a wash that promises to be energy efficient and as speedy as possible.

The clear display is welcome, too.
