Complete with water softener

chestermikeuk's profile picture
5.1 Introduction
The water contains harsh minerals. The higher the content of these minerals the
harder the water is. Hard water can reduce the effectiveness
of the detergent, reduce the softness of fabrics and contribute towards shrinkage and colour fading.

This appliance is equipped with a water softener able to provide the right degree of water softening to preserve the fabric integrity, colour brightness and ensuring good wash performances at low temperature. The water softener should be adjusted according to the water hardness of your inlet water. A correct setting allows to achieve the best washing results and the
maximum garments protection.

To set the water softener correctly, please refer to 'How to set the water
hardness level'. 5.2 How to set the water hardness level The appliance allows you to chose between 7 levels corresponding to 7 different ranges of water hardness. Depending on the country, the water hardness is expressed in equivalent scales: e.g. French degrees (°f), German degrees (°d), English degrees (°e) and mmol/l.

If necessary, please contact your local water authority to check the water
hardness in your area. Check in the "Water hardness levels"
table which is the proper level. To set the water hardness level:
1. Press the On/Off button for a few seconds to activate the appliance.
2. Wait about 10 seconds for appliance internal check.
3. Touch the Stains/Prewash and the
Plus Steam buttons simultaneously (by touching the two buttons at the
same instant, as shown in the next drawing) for some seconds until the
display shows the default level C04 and the indicator goes on. It
means the water softener is active during washing only.

247 Minutes Cottons Washt Time (Std)?

launderess's profile picture
Four hours plus for a "normal" cottons wash? You'll have rags before long after repeating that lot often enough.

Fall behind on the washing and it would be quicker to go down to local launderette, otherwise you'll be using that AEG for days.

That's for the Eco wash cycle. Basically, you are supposed to pack the drum until you have to force the door shut and then the clothes will be washed in (energy-saving) 80F water long enough to achieve the same cleaning as a normal 140F Cotton cycle. It's all marketing so manufacturers can show off how energy efficient their appliance is, while still achieving the required A class cleaning performance.

All the other cycles actually heat to the selected temp and run faster - of course sacrificing energy efficiency in return. A recent survey by our consumer magazine showed that people do look for super efficient machines... but once they get them home and see the cycle time, they don't use the Eco cycle - negating the energy savings they initially bought the washer for.

Ok, got it!

launderess's profile picture
My AEG Oko-Lavamat has an "energy savings" cycle for cottons/linens. Claims to do a full load at 140F but with reduced energy use.

Far as one can see it does so by using less than the already puny amounts of water the machine already uses, but cycle time is greatly increased to around three hours. Obviously less water taken for wash cycle the less there is to heat, so there you are then.

Machine can get away with using such an even more puny amount of water for this ES cycle by running the recirulation pump constantly during the wash. This forces that small amount of water through the laundry.

4 Hrs???? Take the things to the creek and beat them with a rock in less time!!!!These cycle times get longer and MORE ridiculous!

Post# 920647 , Reply# 7   2/11/2017 at 03:05 (188 days old) by henene4 (Germany)        

4h isn't the worst. We had 6h already (that was BSH).

The more annoying thing is that the non-Eco versions actually are now upped to 3:15h across the board on the new series.
Time Saver however cuts that to 2:20h or 1:20h respectivley for the daily or quick option.
The new ÖkoPower cycle is about an hour long, has 2 rinses by default without an interim spin if I remember correctly. Extra rinse options are avaible, allowing for up to 5 rinses there. Each additional rinse adds 5 minutes, so that would be about 1:15-1:20h.

There are plenty of short options. And any american talking about these should keep in mind: 3:15h, that is for a 20lbs load, in a 24" size.

"that is for a 20lbs load, in a 24" size. "

launderess's profile picture
Well yes that is true; but one does not always have twenty pounds of wash at a go.

Well suppose could wash *all* whites such as undergarments, bath and kitchen linen, t-shirts... the lot in one wash, but that isn't always wanted nor desired.

Most H-axis washers are happiest at or near full load capacity for normal cottons/linens cycle. Smaller loads can and often do lead to issues with unbalanced loads and the stress that causes to a machine.

Back to matter at hand; still am not buying this whole three or more hour cycles for washing machines and or automatic dishwashers.

Our consumer magazine had this diagram in their November 2015 issue. The left side says "140°F Cotton Normal, 142°F actual temp, half load, 1.09 kWh, 2:10 hrs. The right side is the 140°F Eco cycle: 93°F actual temp, half load, 0.5 kWh, 3:25 hrs. About half a kWh in energy savings doesn't sound like much - but if the advertising says "This cycles saves you more than 50% in energy costs... A++++++ energy efficiency", people will buy into it. As I said above, the survey showed that only about 20% of users actually select the Eco cycle, mostly because it takes them too long and they think that every cycle, not only the Eco one, is as efficient as the energy label says.

This AEG is rated at A+++ -70%, which translates into 100% more efficient than A, I think. At only 0.32 kWh for a 20 lbs. load on Eco, this cycle probably only "heats" to 77°F... and then you end up with 4 hour cycles.

TIME is a MORE valueable resource to many over water or energy.Esp if they follow the safety rules and run the machine only while at home and awake.This nonsense has to go!!!

Its all in the small print and screen Laundress, we thank our Euro testing labs for those wash times, you have the options of selecting options just over an hour which incidentally will still give us great eco energy efficient wash results than those resource guzzling behemouths in many basements. I are pleased you saw fit to test out our Euro style washers that give the best results in energy efficiency and eco resources AND you do get to see what a little warm heat can do with our heaters !!

My Asko has flexi options from 15 yrs ago, can do a 90d hot quick wash with 3 rinses and super 1600spin in just over an hour...

Energy Efficiency///

chestermikeuk's profile picture
Is nothing new in washing machine, Servis Domestic Appliances UK had a Multi-Fabric wash nearly 40yrs ago. consisting of a soak and tumble over many hrs (until you cancelled and selected rinse) this took advantage of the new generation of enzyme detergents such as Ariel which even now if you dumped all you clothes in a bucket or bathetub, added cool water and left steeping for a few hours would get similar results, again with the benefit of time to complete your wash...

AEG were never known to be fast. Miele was, and Bosch before the advent of VarioPerfect.

These high-load machines are optimized for loads in the realistic range, laundress, and AEG now has an incredible load size adjustment algorythm which they now advanced even further by adding an initial weight sensing via motor speed control.
These machines have 66l drums, equating to about 12-14lbs loads. Of all washers, tgese FLs are by far the best for partial loading in my opinion.

I`m afraid as long as the EU energy label lacks information on fabric wear and rinsing efficiency the craze about endless cycle times and overloaded drums isn`t going to stop any time soon.

Our consumer magazine tells us there is no reproducible method to test fabric wear at the moment, but I *think* the EU has no desire to develop such a test as it would be counterproductive to the current energy savings at all costs policy.

Post# 920718 , Reply# 21   2/11/2017 at 10:53 (188 days old) by henene4 (Germany)        

I don't quite have noticed any significant increase in fabric wear. I use these Eco cycles for overnight washing and such.

Overloaded drums should actually reduce wear. I mean, clothes can't move, thus no friction and less beating.
But rinsing sucks for the most parts, especially if there is no recirc system.

Anyhow, cycle programming has gone way more morbidly wrong then that.
Like BSHs 40C cotton cycle (not Eco) that uses more energy then the 60C version of that cycle.
2h easy care cycles, that use more water then then delicate cycles.
The basic elimination of prewashes on some machines.

These AEGs can cut down wash times down to ~1 1/2h or less for smallest loads.

There's also 4 new videos in English on the AEG youtube channel about 6000, 7000, 8000 and 9000 series washer dryers.

I've rarely seen Washer Dryers get a design update at the same time as the main washers and dryers, but the video seems to show the new design hidden in the shadows.

Not sure if thats because they are alluding to new models coming out shortly (hopefully) or if they simply didn't want to show the older style models in the new videos they've been releasing so hid it from view?!

However... although the older style Washer Dryers have converted over to the newer type model numbers on their websites they don't contain the Outdoor program which the advert talks about, so perhaps something new is on it's way?

Fabric abrasion ISO 3758

rolls_rapide's profile picture
Apparently the international textile labelling codes take into account:
the garment contruction;
the possibility of abrasion;
surface embellishments (i.e. stuck on with glue);
risk of solvents removing colour.

It does say cleaning effectiveness is not dealt with. (Look at the Frequently Asked Questions, last one).
