Really great value
We really like our machine and so much so our friends who used it over summer bought one for themselves. I love you can do a short 15 minute wash. Washing on cold is very good.
Great value for money. Takes a while to get used to the programs and not have things wash for hours but lots of short wash choices that do a good job
We have had for just under a year.
Purchased in July 2020.
Love this machine
Mixed colour wash is 1.18mins, which is only 10 mins longer than my last top loader. Energy rating and water rating is a great mean we don't spend extra on the wash. By far the best front loader I have used and previously owned LG, Simpson and Fisher and Paykel front loaders. The only CON I have is that the end tune is not very loud, but my last washer beeped every five minutes until the door was opened so I am readjusting.

Dead out of the box
We recently purchased an ALDI 9kg front loader, as we don't have a car we had to pay for someone to help pick up and deliver to our apartment. Unfortunately it doesn't work and the water pumps straight to the drain without washing. Rang the service provider to be told to return to the shop for a credit/refund. They weren't interested in a replacement or servicing it.
No other option available. Now we're going to have to pay for the delivery guy to come back and help us return to the store, also then we won't have a washing machine for several more weeks. Not a great option for us. We expected better ALDI.
Purchased in December 2020 at Bing Lee Online store.
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.

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 $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

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.

- Stirling 8kg STR-FL80 (Nov 2019)
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.
Purchased in December 2019 at ALDI for $399.00.
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
Purchased in August 2019 at ALDI for $199.00.
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
Purchased in September 2019 at ALDI for $349.00.
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...

- Stirling 6kg SFLW6 (July 2019)
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 $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.
