I have had my AEG T97689IH Lavatherm machine for just on 2 years. Our laundry no longer has peeling paint and everything does not become mouldy due to the condenser, and recycling heat exchanger.
It’s a great machine that is very economical and I’ve got use to the longer drying cycles compared to my old dryer that lasted 15 years. However the AEG model is much kinder on my clothes.
My one complaint is that the machine will stop when clothes are still very damp, and I need to finish them off on “time dry” setting. This is more prevalent when I’m...

Good machine .... but
Bought this dryer just over three years ago and it has (had) been excellent after a bit of experimentation about what settings worked best with particular types of fabrics. In a climate where a dryer is closer to a necessity than a luxury the good energy efficiency and ability to run a dryer without pumping more humidity into the house have been appreciated. At a rough guess it has run for over 1500 hours since new. Anyway, the motor blew up a few days ago and the replacement will be in the order of $500 (plus the labour) which is about $200 m...ore than I paid for my previous base model Hoover dryer which was still running fine after 14 years when I passed it on to my niece. Admittedly that was in Queensland where a dryer can gather dust through lack of use rather than my current location in Tasmania but still causing a bit of concern about newer AEG quality. On the other hand, I have owned a couple of apparently indestructible AEG washing machines which I suspect are still out there somewhere making the world a cleaner place. Would I buy another AEG dryer? Not if I lived in Queensland or anywhere having a dryer was an occasional convenience. Basically I could buy a new Hoover every year and throw the old one away and still be ahead financially. In Tasmania, maybe ... but I would sure be checking reliability reviews first.

I am very happy with the dryer. we bought it as a package (washing machine and the dryer) not very happy with the washing machine but the dryer is excellent.

Love this dryer
I love this dryer. Very quiet, dry cloths perfectly. The most i love is no more wet laundry room. The condensation water straight to the pipe. No much hasle. The only thing need to improve is the filter. Dried cloths may get the dirt from filter when removed from the dryer.

Questions & Answers
HELP how do we get this dryer to work effectively? We are a household that usually dries things on the line but occasionally we have to use a dryer. We have had this dryer for almost three years and it NEVER works effectively. Honestly I don't believe I have ever taken something out and thought yes, so nice and dry. Everything always feels still quite damp.Highly unsatisfactory especially after the sales pitch. We have spent hours pouring over the instruction booklet. Usually we are drying clothes that are cotton, or partially lined dried dry sheets and towels. Any tips gratefully accepted.
horriable dryer... premium price for poor quality. Doesn't dry clothes. Takes very long periods to dry items as in 5 hours or more..would not recommend
