AEG Oko Lavamat Turbo 16800
AEG Oko Lavamat Turbo 16800 Review I like the convenience of a washer-dryer combination. But having owned several British-made washer-dryers which proved to be unreliable and expensive to get repaired, I decided to spend some extra money on a German-branded washer-dryer with a reputation for quality.
I settled on the AEG brand because I liked the quality looks and the features. I chose the Oko Lavamat Turbo 16800 because it offered a 1600 rpm spin-speed as well as auto-sensing of moisture to stop the drying cycle automatically.
There are two automatic moisture levels which can be selected: ready-to-iron and ready-to-store. Another must-have feature for me was a built-in digital delay timer which allows me to program the washer-dryer to run when my electricity is at the cheapest rate. The timer can be set for delays of up to 19 hours in increments of 1 hour. This machine has been very reliable. It has not had any faults and it is now nine years old. I have been so impressed with it that I bought a second one to install at a rental property I own.
That machine gets much more use than mine and it has also been very reliable. There was just one fault when a pump blade was broken and I think this was because the tenant's child had a tendency to put small toys in the machine when her parents were't watching!
I would give this machine a rating of 5 out of 5. Choosing this model was one of the best decisions I have ever made Pros
- Wide range of features Cons
- Higher cost
- No half-load feature
