The installation and setup of the machine is simple. Gets the job done very well with our daily clothes and office attire. Washing Features were all present in this unit. i think the cleaning cycle time is not accurate. The warranty period is very long given that this is the cheapest among other 7.5kg model. Lastly, the size is only good for small family.
Great basic Front Load Washer
Really happy with this washing machine. It's quite basic, but very easy to use and cleans very well. It looks and feels like a high quality build too. Quite a lot of wash settings too (23!) and i like the extra rinse option which you can add on. Great appliance!
It's ok, but would be better if it spun for longer.
We just wash normal clothes, not overly dirty. My husband is visually impaired, so wanted something he can easily set to use. Many of the new models in electrical stores have flat touch screens now, which are useless to him. This machine has an easy dial and buttons to alter other settings, making it easy for him to use.
The machine seems to clean and freshen the clothes nicely, but does not spin for very long even on the longer wash cycle and fastest spin setting. The clothes take much longer to dry than our older machine.
Awesome cleans whites to whites if I didn’t get this washing machine I would highly still be using my old clunker.very happy with my purchase i totally recommend this machine.
Purchased in January 2019.
Sometimes needs to reset dial by spinning three times for some reason. Other than that very happy about it thank you also this was a great washing machine and for a great price

I purchased this washing machine for my holiday home 31/012/2019. Being in a holiday home the machine has had very little use. I have recently arrived home from an overseas trip and need to self quarantine for 2 weeks. As such I arrived at my holiday home with a suitcase full of dirty washing only to find a hole in my washing machine door with a large section of glass on the drum. The home has been vacant and no one has access to the home and as such the glass was not damaged by human intervention. Being in quarantine I cannot return the machine to Aldi and I cannot purchase a new machine.
Purchased at Roasebud for A$399.00.
Stirling 8kg front load washing machine
Once I adjusted the balance the machine worked fine. It washes clean.
The shirt cycle is excellent. I am pleased with the number of washing cycles. The spin speeds enable to select for quick drying or minimise creasing with slower speeds. Value for money
Purchased in February 2020 at Churchill Centre Kilburn for A$300.00.
Best Wash Machine Ever
Bought a 8kg front load Black edition wash machine in mid January 2020 for a bargain.
Turned out to be the best wash machine we ever had
Only critique: Aldi should consider a delivery option in their bulky items on sale.

Super washing machine.
Great washing results, with all types of fabrics. Love the 8 kg saves a lot on water. Extremely quiet during washing cycle.
The only negative point everything comes out very wrinkled.
Great and dose not use a lot of water and it's got the time and everything else
Great great great great washing machine and dose not use a lot of water and it's got the time and everything else and catches all the dust from the clothes
Only had this machine a couple of months and absolutely love it. Easy to use, lots of options. Only fault is spin cycle can be a bit loud, but got used to it in a couple of days. Washes just as well as the more expensive ones. Would highly recommend
Used for linen and mixed clothing . Worked at the beginning, but washing ended with wet item, no spin... gentle washing to all item... the circle times are underestimated... after 12 month of purchased the technician has to come first time... two month later the machine shows an error of E33, according to Sterling Manufacture unrepairable... it lasted all up 14 month . Refund received in our account same day...
Product bad, customer service very good...

Good front loader for medium/small loads
The 6kg barrel will 'just' wash a large queen sized blanket but not a queen sized quilt unfortunately.
It can wash a load of clothes in 15 minutes which is super helpful for people short of time and can heat up the wash water to 60 degrees for a more through and hygienic wash. Lots of wash cycle options and ability to add a custom wash programmed to your settings.
The spin cycle is quite loud (runs up to 1200 rpm) ,but apart from that and the smaller barrel size, the ALDI warranty guarantee is what sold me on the well priced and modern looking machine. Looks more expensive than the $349 I paid for it and I have no regrets.
Great washing machine. Awesome warranty offered
We purchased from aldi. Great machine. Large enough for our family of four. Quick wash cycle works well and I find it easy to use. I had a small issue with the machine and it was repaired in my home in a timely manner and fixed well. Price was great at $499. I would recommend this machine. Excellent A+++
Purchased in May 2014 for A$499.00.
Cheap yes but try and get it fixed when it breaks down that's when they palm you off. Error E62 RRR Never heard of that, must be technical. No hot water and over 2 hours to do a wash. Worked fine until about 4 months out of warranty. Not worth fixing even if I could find out what was wrong with it
I bought a Sterling front end loading washing machine from Aldi in 2009 and cost me half of what the going price was for the front end loaders in the electrical stores. I love it. Cleans the clothes very well. Yes, I have had a couple of problems with it but lets face it, you are going to with any washing machine.
Hardly German Quality
A terrible disappointment! Yes it was cheap, and that is about it. It does not wash clothes properly and even on longer cycles, clothes do not look washed at all. Clearly misrepresentation of product. It sells as a washing machine, and performs as a water and power waster. I would have expected more from Aldi as their food is good, but their white goods sometimes miss the mark. This one certainly did. Just a hassle to try to return it again as it is a large object and the service for Stirling white goods is appalling! There is no after sales service. The company is called Tempo and they offer little to no assistance at all.
waste of money
i bought this washing machine and from the start it was noisy ( you can hear it a few houses away with all my house locked up) it sounded like a machine gun and thats no exaggeration! then it kept pouring water all over my floors with every wash, i called the warrenty company and they sent a repair man who said the job was too big for him as the inside drum had shaved a whole in the barrel that holds the water, after 4 weeks of hearing nothing more, i called the company again to ask how long they expect a household to live without a washing mac...hine for especially having 4 kids! they then said they were trying to source parts from the manufacturer, after another week of no word from them i called again, only to be told, i had to take the washing machine back to aldi for a full refund! i only owned this machine for just over 2 years, luckily, it was covered by a 3 year warrenty...
No after sales service!
My machine is not holding the softener back until last rinsing cycle.
Softener disappears with first washing cycle.
Tempo, a contractor to ALDI should handle after sales and warranty issues.
After explaining my problem Tempo declared this as a NONE fault and as a normal behavior of this particular machine.
ALDI customer service is repeating this unprofessional diagnose after I complained the unprofessional behavior of Tempo.
End of story for ALDI but not for me.
I logged now a complaint with NSW Fair Trading.
I will never buy anything of value from ALDI again!
- 7.5kg Front Loader (Jan 2011)
- Selected Review
Broke down 6 months out of 2 yr warranty
Initially I said it was excellent and while it worked it was. My initial review said :
'I paid $349 (it came into the shop at $499 but was reduced). For that price for a top loader that is so far working fine (cleans our clothes well on the one hour cycle. I think it is a good machine so far and has a good warranty (2 years). The instruction book lists the “Ordinary clothes” cotton cycle as being 1 hour and 37 minutes in duration, but this is incorrect. The machine shows it to be 2 HOURS and 38 minutes! Tempo confirmed this with me on the ...‘phone. Tempo Australia also gave me the following error reset instructions (these are exactly as given to me. They had no other reset code for any error apart from E11 and hadn’t heard of other errors): Buttons: Pre-Wash = K1 Delay = K2 Temp = K3 Spin Speed = K4 Add Garment = K5
Questions & Answers
Has the 9kg front washer have
different load sizes to select from?
E.g., small medium or large wash ?
My machine washes well and I'm pleased with it except that some items of clothing (singlets, nylon work shirt, T shirts) come out smelling. They didn't smell when I put them in the machine. The smell is like the item has been on the line in the rain for weeks. A horrible musty smell. Has anyone else experienced this?
twin had a heart attack last Friday .. In order to keep the
frustration of her current machine, leaking and doing damage to the property she’s renting, I thought i would try and buy her a front loader. Is it still possible to buy the 7.5 kg Stirling washer for $349 https://www.productreview.com.au/listings/stirling-aldi-str-flw75-july-2018
