I bought this for speed , silence and convenience having 2 babies under 2 . I hoped this amazing machine would be value for money at 550GBP. After 14 months just after the warranty expired the PCB board is worn out - cost for part and repair = 243GBP !!!. AFter reading other reviews this is a very common problem . I wish I had bought a hotpoint for 240GBP now in the first place - my last Hotpoint lasted 10years & didn't cost me an extra penny !! can you believe that !! I should never have... (read more)

I have owned two AEG washer dryers both of which have irrepairably broken down. The first after two years and then I mistakenly bought another thinking it must be an improved model and that conked out after two and a half years. I would avoid AEG in future. (read more)

I carried out quite a bit of research when buying a AEG Electrolux L16830 and it appears to have paid off.

The machine is incredibly heavy but this appears to pay dividends as it is much less prone to vibration than cheaper machines.

Before my review of the AEG Electrolux L16830, I must stress that you'd do well to avoid purchasing from Pixmania. I found their customer service is very very poor.
I tried to contact them about 10 times over a 4-day period just prior to delivery, on their stated customer line. Each time, after listening to the recorded message, I would select the appropriate option, and then wait. The phone went dead after 30 seconds?
If you never need to contact them, and all goes well with delivery, and... (read more)

Having tried every detergent, liquid , powder and tablets in this AEG Electrolux L16830 now thinking of getting rid of the machine as cycles take too long with the additional rinsing and therefore more water and electricity.
