Product information

Introducing AEG’s most efficient, high performance washing machine- the L89499FL AEG ÖKOMix with an A+++-50% energy rating and Woolmark Accreditation.

Technological innovations are aplenty in the AEG L89499FL, including pre-mixing technology and the ÖKO inverter permanent magnet motor. These technologies allow you to wash everything from large 9kg cotton loads to the most delicate handwash items, such as silk and cashmere whilst keeping a green conscience. Not only does this washing machine provide outstanding fabric care it consumes half the amount of energy of an A+++ rated machine, saving you money on electricity and water bills.

16 innovative wash programmes and jet system washing technology ensures your clothes will be cared for. Programmes include Super eco, delicates and even dry clean only. With the AEG ÖKOMix, detergent is first added to the water to make an instant, concentrated wash mix. AEG’s DirectSpray system then delivers this mix into the heart of your laundry where it begins to work immediately. This results in a more thorough, yet gentle wash that uses less energy and is just as effective at 30ºC as it is at 40ºC. The direct spray also ensures that the mixed water and detergent are evenly distributed throughout the load, avoiding bleach spots and stains on your clothes.

Thanks to the L89499FL’s outstanding efficiency there’s no compromise on wash time. A full 9kg load of soiled laundry can be washed perfectly at A+++-50% in less than three and a half hours, while smaller loads will be cleaned using the optimum amount of time, water and energy as determined by the machines intelligent sensors.

The ÖKOMix range has been awarded the Woolmark Green certificate for its exceptionally gentle care of woollen and cashmere garments. The L89499FL will treat all handwash only garments, no matter how expensive or delicate, with expert care.

A handy steam programme can also refresh dry clean only garments like suits and dresses for the ultimate in convenience.

The stylish looks of the L89499FL with a large glass door, control panel and sleek silver frame will complement any interior. The LogicControl touch display is made of high quality stainless steel and has an anti-fingerprint coating. Thanks to the intuitive menu guide, this washing machine is extremely easy to operate.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Having had an AEG 'OKO' for 15 years, I knew the new version would be a good quality machine. It has indeed come up to expectations. My only difficulty is getting used to a 9 kilo load rather than a 5 kilo loading! I am still experimenting with all the different programmes available, but all seem to work well. 10 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine! I bought this machine as I have a lot of clothes with delicate clothing that my old Bosch washer quite often ruined by shrinking them. Research told me that an AEG washing machine is best for delicate and wool fabrics. I was particularly impressed with the Woolmark accreditation. This is a brilliant machine. It has a variety of settings, including delicates, silk & wooden. It has an express 20 minute wash which is quick, powerful and effective. There is a cycle especially for duvets / pillows which spruced up our old pillows nicely. It hasn't shrunk any of my clothes or left cottons with small holes in the fabric. The temperature and spin speed can be changed on each setting - I am confused by other reviews which say that the machine is often unresponsive when trying to change the settings. I've not had any problems with my machine. Overall, the machine is quiet, powerful and effective. I like the fact it has an eco button which reduces the length of the long washing cycles. I would highly recommend this machine. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect all rounder - love its enviromentally friendly credentials! Disclosure: I was selected by the manufacturer to receive this product free of charge in return for an honest impartial review. This is a great washing machine with a large drum and some great features. It weighs the washing as you put it in so no risk of overloading and ensures the clothes are cleaned most effectively. There are lots of programmes which can be a little daunting but after trying out a few it was easy to work out the favourites and which work for which purpose. I really like the way you can customise your wash to suit by reducing the time, temperature and spin on some programmes as well as adding in a prewash for really grubby clothes. I have been really impressed with the great job the washing machine does on a load of clothes and had no issues with the quality of the clean at all. It is especially brilliant when you consider that it delivers such high performance on such efficiency. There are also two steam settings which are perfect for dry clean only clothes or for freshening up suit jackets. I would recommend this washing machine to anyone looking for an all-rounder that suits lots of purposes. Great work AEG! 22 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top product, top results, top of the class My family and I were delighted that AEG selected us to receive a free washing machine in return for an honest review of its performance, which is what I will attempt to do. Given how advanced this machine is, and knowing that a huge amount of the latest tech has gone into it, the design and operation of the machine is familiar, simple and clever. I was a little worried that you might need to be a computer programmer to operate it, but this was not the case, and regrettably I have no excuses not to use it! We found that the machine works equally well on all settings and delivers a well balanced and thoroughly cleaned result. A few features warrant special mention: There are 4 compartments in the drawer, allowing you to put vanish or calgon into the machine and get it released at the right time. I have no idea how this ever worked in other machines, such a simple addition and so useful to help clean kids mud stained clothes. The scales are also brilliantly simple but really useful, I now know how many T Shirts and socks I can safely stuff in before its a full load, especially helps with unbalanced loads as well. My wife volunteered a very delicate hand wash only blouse which had sadly encountered some wine at a party and which she had written off as ruined. However, the combination of stain remover and gentle but thorough hand washing rescued the garment and it genuinely was 95% perfect after this. I can't say it was quite as perfect as TV ads would have us believe, but, certainly it rescued the top and returned it to near perfection. Lastly, we love the eco wash, we use this for large heavy loads that can be left overnight, safe in the knowledge that not only will it be quiet, but it will cost next to nothing to get a perfect result, from what we could tell on our meter, perhaps a third of the cost of a standard wash, yes it takes longer, but, who cares! 19 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The quietest washing machine ever! I was selected by AEG to receive the product free of charge in return for my honest review. This is the quietest washing machine I have ever used! Even when it was spinning it wasn’t at all noisy. The washing machine does have a fair few features so I was slightly overwhelmed at first, but it is actually really simple to use. The steam function has to be one of my all-time favourite features; from working in an office and being sat down all day, I find that my jackets and trousers can get elbow and knee marks. The steam function, which even works on dry clean only clothes, freshens everything up and puts them back into shape. The clothes come out very slightly damp, but they are fresher and it will save me so much time and effort by not having to take them to the dry cleaners so often. Overall the machine is well made and sturdy. It also looks good and fits well into a modern kitchen/utility area. Highly recommended! 18 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT- exceeded my expectations Being a mother of two young children, laundry features heavily in my daily routine so I was very excited when offered this washing machine FOC by AEG in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. Having previously owned several high-end branded washing machines I consider myself to be a knowledgeable, demanding and critical consumer, but this machine has completely exceeded my expectations. The 9 Kg load capacity is perfect for washing all my family’s towels, or all the bedding from our 6ft bed in one wash, so I now do fewer washes. It is incredibly energy efficient, weighing the load in the drum and adjusting the wash cycle so as not to over-wash, even if only a small load is inserted. It advises me as to the amount of detergent needed to achieve a perfect result every time. Water and detergent are premixed before being sprayed in to the drum leading to perfect cleaning results while minimizing the use of detergent and water, and a fourth compartment for stain removing agents ensures that the stain remover is added at the optimum time to achieve the best cleaning result. It is the first washing machine I have used where I can say that I am confident that the clothes will be perfectly clean even on a 30-degree wash. The machine’s sleek modern design is attractive. It offers a multitude of very useful programs. I love the Woolmark approved program for hand-wash only sweaters and the steam program for freshening up a suit or dry-clean only dress. The machine is easy to use and allows you to customize your programs with the press of a button to change the temperature of the wash or its duration. By far it is the best washing machine I have used. 18 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded expectations A faultless machine delivered with care and attention to detail 14 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice machine, warranty misold The machine ticks all the right boxes for us. Quiet in operation, plenty of programs to choose from, easy to use, easy to install, high quality build standard and looks good in the modern kitchen. The product was delivered to us at a conveniently agreed time slot by very helpful delivery guys who carried from the street into the house. The only issue I have with the purchase is that John Lewis advertised the machine as having a 5 year warranty, however after registering it on the manufacturer's web site it only comes with 2 years. I notified John Lewis but they have referred me off to go back to the manufacturer to sort it out which is a bit disappointing. 30 January 2015
