Product information

Please note: This product is not available in our shops for viewing. However, you can still place your order in store.

This AEG ProTex T86280IC condenser tumble dryer has a generous 8kg capacity, an extra large drum at 380mm wide for easy loading and operates a reduced noise level. This is a great dryer for any home.

The built-in sensors automatically stop the cycle as soon as your clothes are dry, saving you time and money. The LED display even keeps you fully informed about the status of your load. There is also an anti-crease function that kicks in after your drying cycle has finished, this rotates your clothes intermittently to reduce creasing and make the ironing a little easier.

The T86280IC has a full range of programmes selectable on its electronic display and simple push buttons. The sensidry range provides incredibly gentle drying, utilising the new soft pattern drum design and special airflow system. This gentle drying technology ensures that your clothes are given the best possible protection against fading and wear. The new wool programme is so gentle, that it has been awarded the Woolmark silver certification. Cottons, bed linen, duvets and delicates programmes are also featured.

There is also a handy 20 hour delay start function to keep you in control, whilst a bright LED interior light, means you can be sure to have collected every last sock.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it Exactly as described... And oh so quiet... Looking forward to many years of quality from this much trusted brand 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even widely mixed loads come out perfectly! I've had several tumble driers over a long period of time, but this one outshines them all and works perfectly. The controls are very easy to use and so versatile I still can't think of any requirement they haven't thought of, and the Extra Quick Mixed setting is good when time is short and the load is widely varied. The machine does release quite a lot of heat into the room, but against that, it is much quicker than any of my previous driers. 29 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dryer works well. Hope the service and instructions improve. I cannot fault the dryer after three weeks. The normally wasted heat comes back into the room which is certainly useful this time of the year. However the instructions are awful. I rang AEG and after pressing 99 buttons was directed to their service department in Bolton, where I waited 20 minutes before giving up. I emailed them for better instructions pointing out what I did not understand. After a few days I received a good reply and explanation. No problems with it now. 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works very well and is simple to use An excellent product that is easy to use,quite and works well. Bought for my elderly mother in law. I like the large opening to get the washing in and out. Found the instruction book a little confusing, you do need it for the initial set up however for the practicality of operating on a daily basis it is all very straight forward. Have been using the machine now for a number of weeks and am very pleased to have chosen this model which fits neatly in the corner of the garage. A very prompt and precise delivery with very helpful delivery staff - thanks John Lewis Highly recommended. 01 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Excellent drier but.... We have had this condenser drier for about 4 weeks now and have found it to be just great at actually drying wet washing. However we immediately noticed a horrible smell from the machine which transfers to the washing. It's a sort of plastic chemical smell, which gives you with a headache and which permeates through the house. We have to leave the door of the machine open & have tried wiping the inside of the machine all to no avail. Towels just smell awful when they come out, and we have to air stuff before it can get put away, difficult in winter! 05 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine Very impressed with the build quality,facilities and performance.a very good purchase. 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic build quality - great value for money! Our Hotpoint vented dryer finally gave up after only 3 short years of service; the cost of repair was more than the initial outlay, even with the 5 year Hotpoint parts warranty! After a lot of research and a little more investment than before, we opted for the AEG. The first thing we noticed was the superb build quality and finish; far superior to our previous Hotpoint! The machine feels solid and planted but yet it's very quiet when operating. It was an easy installation and set up. There's even a setting for the water conductivity depending on the water hardness. The instructions are concise and fairly easy to get along with. There's a tonne of features and settings to play around with; the display is clear and easy to understand. For the price, this really is an exceptional machine. Very efficient and great value for money......and a 5 year warranty as well!!! No brainer!! 23 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great quality & easy to use! We purchased this model last year when we were moving to our house. The machine looks great and sits well next to our AEG washing machine. It was really easy to install and we had it up and running in next to no time. The unit is really easy to use, with a very simple interface that lets you chuck your washing in and get a cycle started quickly. There are also a variety of cycles to choose from depending on what you want to achieve. The "cupboard dry" setting is particularly useful for us, as we can then put the basket of washing in to the airing cupboard or on hangers before it is bone dry and hard to iron etc. The only downsides for us have been that we occasionally find the washing to be wetter than expected when the cycle is finished. I don't believe this model factors in the load weight (unlike the matching washing machine), and it doesn't have the dryness sensor like the more expensive AEG model. On the whole though, I would happily recommend this unit to anyone. 16 April 2014
