AEG L98480FL Freestanding Washing Machine, 8kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White

Product information

An excellent performer in all areas, the AEG L98480FL washing machine is an ideal family appliance.

Energy efficiency defines this AEG appliance: it is A+++ energy rated, and A-rated for washing and spinning. A 1400 rpm spin speed ensures clothes are easier to dry, while the time delay option lets you set this machine to wash whenever is convenient for you. This AEG machine also houses Aqua Control, an internal flood prevention system, for peace of mind when washing.

A large 8kg capacity gives you plenty of space to wash bigger loads. The specially designed extra-gentle Protex drum provides care for clothes, while the OptiSense washing system allows you to tailor cycle settings. AEG’s unique LogiControl touch display makes customising washes even more effortless.

The L98480FL is handy for smaller washes too: the incredible ultra-quick programme washes 3kg of clothes in just 20 minutes! Perfect when you need those jeans washed quickly.

Other programmes include:

  • Super eco: works specifically with cold wash detergents to use 83% less energy than a 40°C wash
  • Wool plus: A cool down at the end of the wash phase minimises shrinkage
  • Easy iron: helps prevent tangling and creasing, reducing the need to iron
  • Delicate

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washing machine This AEG like all their product is first rate. well made works well and extremely quite. I decided on Aeg after my old machine(not an AEG) bearing needed replacing and was shocked at the price.This made me look at spares on other makes and the AEG spares are a third of the price of a lot of other makes on the market. 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Replacing a classic! Bought to replace an old AEG washer that served faithfully for 17 years the new model demonstrates how how technology has moved on in that time. Extremely quiet, the powerful machine works quickly, efficiently and with faultless Eco credentials. A real bonus is I can wash clothes and don't have to worry about water for a bath as the machine [as are most modern machines] works only on a cold feed. Full marks AEG. Let us hope it can last 17 years? 24 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Programs not thought out well Here are my findings after 1 month of researching washing machines and 4 months of usage. Positive aspects The facia makes it look like a serious quality piece of kit. Everybody that saw it in my kitchen was actually wow'ed by it. Apart from when on full spin, you hardly know it is on!. It hasn't badged a millimetre from the location I put it in four months ago. The two progammable memory buttons are useful because, all washing machines nowadays have extended their program times to ridiculous lengths and so I set the memory buttons for shortened times and lower temps for one press use. It has the largest 8kg drum of all the other brand machines I checked and, it is only slightly smaller than AEGs 9 kg version. This machine takes my kingsize duvets (if fed in correctly) and it is the main reason I bought it, I took my biggest duvet to the shop before buying. The door closes comfortably and the duvets do get cleaned well on about 1hr 30min 40C. This saves tons of money and monthly trips to the laundrette. Negative aspects OK, my main grip is the terrible program settings and the unresponisive touch buttons. The machine allows you to "adjust" temperature, time and spin but with buttons that are unresponsive, sometimes I press them three times before the setting changes. Problem with adjustments: When I reduce the time to say 1hr 40mins the machine ignores this and adds another hour. This is really stupid. Default settings are too long and at too high temperatures which means manual setting everytime (with difficult to use butttons) unless your memory buttons cover what you need. The 1200 spin is not very effective, items come out too wet so a separate 1400 spin is required for those programs without 1400 spin eg the 20min wash. Buy if, washing larger kingsize duvets is important to you and you don't mind unresponsive buttons, otherwise buy the 8kg Siemens WM14Y591, it has an excellent program panel, but you will struggle with larger kingsize duvets. 25 February 2015
