AEG T65170AV Vented Tumble Dryer, 7kg Load, C Energy Rating, White

Product information

This AEG T65170AV vented tumble dryer has a large 7kg capacity, making it ideal for use in a busy household.

This dryer has dedicated programs to take complete care of your clothes: take advantage of the refresh program to freshen up your once-worn, stored and naturally dried items, and there are also specialist jeans and wool care programs.

You can dry any size load using a perfectly proportionate amount of energy: this dryer adapts the cycle length to suit the exact size and dampness of each and every load, so you achieve perfect drying results using the lowest amount of energy possible.

The start of a cycle can be delayed by 3, 6 or 9 hours to suit your needs, allowing you to take better control over your time. You can also customise this tumble dryer to suit your space with the reversible door.

Vented Tumble Dryer
The vented dyer expels warm air from the machine via a venting kit. It is essential that this air is vented outside, therefore the appliance must be situated near an outside wall. Vented dryers come with a venting kit consisting of a venting hose and connectors for the appliance and wall.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does a good job Wide door is very helpful. Drying ability is very good and auto reverse ensures clothes don't knot up while sensor switches off when they are dry if I forget. Only complaint is that we are temporarily using the vent hose provided out of a window while we refurbish the utility and it keeps pulling out of the screw-in adaptor. If it had been 3 metres long instead of 2, this would not happen. Other than that, a very good machine and worthwhile purchase. Very pleased 18 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by An Excellent Piece of Equipment I needed a new Tumble Dryer and as I had purchased a Washing Machine from John Lewis before, and having experienced their efficient and courteous service, there was no other choice. The item arrived in excellent condition, delivered in the most polite way. It performs very well, as does the aforementioned Washing Machine, that has been no trouble and has given good service for the past two years. Thank you, David R. 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful and " hard to do without" product. Ordering on line was easy. My old machine was removed at reasonable cost, so I just had to link up the venting hose and start to use it. Being a newer model, it is a bit more sophisticated than my old AEG but very simple and easy to use. I am delighted! 10 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Knots It leaves some clothes in knots, tights, sheets and some how all the clothes end up inside a duvet if not closed. 10 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Suits my needs for drying Does what it says, would have liked less options with heat levels, but am getting used to it 27 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not completely impressed! I am disappointed in the drying results from this machine. The settings are not designed to allow the user to choose either temperature or time of the drying! The user manual states that the 'Cotton' settings are designed for clothes with a double dot in the dryer symbol of the label. From that, I can only conclude (even though the drying temperatures are not stated anywhere in the manual - another frustration!) that it is a fairly hot temperature and therefore avoid using it for anything other than towels and cotton sheets. However, if I select 'Synthetics' - which is for clothes with one dot on the label, the clothes are often still damp when the dryer stops, even when set on 'strong dry'. This is especially the case with jogging trousers with quite thick waistbands. These don't dry properly on a synthetic setting and I can't risk shrinkage by using a cotton setting. They therefore end up on the drying rack, which defeats the purpose of having a fancy dryer! I'm very frustrated at not being given the option of simply selecting a temperature and time and being able to set the machine for 'a few more minutes' if something is not quite dry. I would not recommend this machine for anyone who wants that flexibility. On a positive note, the John Lewis delivery men were extremely helpful and not only took my old machine away but took 10 minutes to assist with the installation of the new one. Thank you! 05 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product but annoyed that door switching wasn't made clearer I really like this dryer, it's large, I like the push door, just really like it. However it's not quiet - ours is in an outhouse so not an issue for us but it's not quiet. I was also frustrated as i bought it specifically because it could have the door opening either way and then when i got it i find out i have to pay someone to do this for me! I haven't done it yet as I'm sure that will be a hefty fee. That should have been made clear in the description as it made it sound as if you could do it yourself. Apart from that it's great! 29 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great but clothes can be slightly damp I wouldn't recommend this machine. I would have given it 5-stars but sometimes the clothes are damp, even on the "Extra Dry" setting and there is no way to force it to keep drying. It needs a button that says 30 minutes more. 23 September 2015
