Product information

An excellent performer in all areas, the AEG L98699FL 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 1600 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 9kg 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. A large LCD display makes customising washes even more effortless.

The L98699FL 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� wash
  • Wool / silk: ideal for woollens, as well as delicate fabrics that need to be washed by hand
  • Easy iron: helps prevent tangling and creasing, reducing the need to iron
  • Delicate
  • Duvets
  • Anti-allergy

AEG L98699FL This machine replaces an old premium AEG that has been in service for 14 yrs. I had considered the better spec LG at the same price, but give the 14yrs service thought it was a sure bet. First impressions - Well, not quite a quite as expected. Certainly quitter on the spin cycle, but the pump is a lot noisier, to the point where it is actually worse than the noise generated on the old AEG's spin cycle. Using the programs was pretty much intuitive, which it had to be really, given the quality of the instruction manual. Whilst I thought the addition of a light in the inside was more of a gimmick, it is actually proving useful for finding 'that lost sock'. Only time will tell if this lives up to the old AEG. Had I not have had the exposure to the old one that I had, I probably would have bought the LG, which seems better value for money on paper, and has a 10 yr warranty. Only time will tell if I have made the right choice. John Lewis did, as usual, provide first class service, thanks chaps! 12 February 2014
Better than expected. After 2 months the washing machine has proved to be excellent in the versatility of available programs from grandchildren's food-soiled clothes to Welsh flannel blankets and has exceeded our expectations. Delivery and installation was efficient and to plan 03 December 2013
Excellent machine After 14 years of constant use my old AEG died - and so I decided to buy a replacement. After much research and realising the £100 cash back I ordered this online - after 3 weeks of using it - I am very happy. the drum is huge! it cleared my backlog of washing in three loads! - i have not used all of the programmes as yet but 20 minute quick wash is fantastic and all programmes can be cut short to save on time. I love it so much and hopefully I look forward to another 14 years! 04 November 2013
VERY PLEASED! GREAT MACHINE! Difficult to get over enthusiastic about a washing machine, but after much deliberation I decided to go for this one, despite the negative comment from one of the reviewers below. (Also too good to miss the £100 cashback and 5yr guarantee). I have now been using it for 4 wks, it is a brilliant machine and has every possible programme you'll ever need. It's definitely worth spending the extra bit of money for the larger 9kg drum size, it's amazing how much you can get in it, 2 sets of king size bedlinen and plenty of room to spare. Brilliant for family use. I haven't had any problems at all with it, however, it does take a little while to get used to the many programmes available, there seem to be so many options to tailor the washing programme to your own specific needs. AEG seem to have thought of everything. Also great delivery service and efficient installation and removal of old machine, thanks JL! 04 October 2013
Avoid! I ordered this AEG machine to replace my Bosch which broke down after 10 years of constant daily use. There is no doubt that this AEG machine is solid, well built and looks superb. The stainless steel user panel looks beautiful, the touch screen is intuitive and the large silver door has a solid "clunk" when opened and closed. There is also an interior light in the drum. Unfortunately, the looks are the only good thing about this machine. If you actually want to wash your laundry, then my advise would be to steer clear of this machine! No matter what cycle I used, pretty much all of my laundry was totally ruined by this machine. My laundry had holes in, stitching coming apart, fraying, unbelievable colour loss (despite a cold wash, colour care powder and a gentle cycle with reduced spin), and extreme bobbling and piling. I am quite sure that my clothes were thoroughly clean after going through such an aggressive wash in this machine, they were just falling to bits afterwards and could not be worn again. It has cost me a small fortune to replace some of the items ruined by this machine but the most upsetting thing is that some of the items simply cannot be replaced. John Lewis were brilliant in arranging to remove and refund the AEG machine and I have gone back to a Bosch after this dreadful experience. One thing is for sure, my clothes may not be quite so spotlessly clean in the Bosch, but at least they are intact! I don't know if the AEG I had was faulty, but I for one would not be prepared to risk my laundry in another AEG to find out! 26 August 2013
Excellent machine 1. The machine is so quiet! 2. Weighing of the load by the machine prevents overload and advices on quantity of detergent 3. Easy to use settings 4. Nice big loading door 5. unsure why it needs an internal light I hope to see the promised improvement in my electricity and water usage reflect in lower bills! 15 August 2013
Great Machine! Have had this machine for a few weeks now after my old AEG finally passed away. What a difference a few years of technology makes! I'm so far very pleased with the performance and straightforward controls. I especially like the 'steam' feature which I use frequently either to refresh clothes or after a cotton cycle on full 1600 spin which makes ironing so much easier, dries quicker too. Massive drum size, door opens fully to 180 degrees so easy to load. Lots of programmes to choose from and washes and spins very quietly, though it has a 'quite' wash setting which I have not yet used. My only one small niggle is the red LED display is hard to read in bright light or at certain angles, but I really am picking. A bit pricey but a well built machine. Very happy! 10 March 2013
Good buy Although I have only had my machine for a day, I had plenty of laundry to do as my old machine died last week. The instructions with the AEG were straightforward (even for someone over 60) and the machine is quiet and efficient. The clothes are not quite as dry as I expected, but much drier than the old 1100 spin. I have used the eco setting and the quickwash and both worked well. So far so good. The drum is cavernous and having the laundry actually weighed as it went in was great. Very pleased. 06 February 2013
