The AEG 7000 dryer vs the AEG 8000 dryer

You're looking for an AEG Lavatherm dryer, but you're unsure whether you need a 7000 or 8000 series dryer. Do you want the machine to protect all types of laundry during the drying process? Then you should choose an AEG 8000 dryer, which has a different drum motion for every fabric. The AEG 7000 doesn't have this. In this article, you can read the main differences.

Difference in technology

AEG 7000 dryer

AEG 7000: dries at a low temperature

To save energy and protect your laundry from heat, an AEG 7000 dryer uses SensiDry to dry at a low temperature. The dryer doesn't heat up the drum with a heating element like a condenser dryer does, but it uses a heat pump that reuses the hot air. By constantly blowing the hot air back into the drum, you don't reach as high a temperature. This is better for your laundry, energy bill, and the environment. Your clothes will last longer.

AEG 8000 dryer

AEG 8000: low temperature and suitable for all laundry

An AEG dryer of the 8000 series not only uses a heat pump to dry at a low temperature, but it also has a different drum motion for every type of laundry. Do you have a soft woolen sweater or a silk blouse? The AbsoluteCare technology adjusts the drum's rotation speed to your laundry. This technology makes sure your favorite clothes continue to look good even longer, so you don't need to worry that they'll wear or shrink.

Difference in energy consumption

Energy label AEG 7000 dryer

AEG 7000: saves at least € 640 on energy costs

Among the AEG 7000 series of dryers, you can choose models with an energy label ranging from A+ to A+++. If you get an A+ model, you'll save at least € 640 on energy costs over the machine's entire lifespan. This estimation applies in comparison to a model with a B energy label and an 8kg load capacity. We assume that the machine lasts 12 years on average.

Energy label AEG 8000 dryer

AEG 8000: saves at least € 838 on energy costs

The AEG 8000 series of dryers are available with at least an A++ energy label. This will save you at least € 838 on energy costs over the dryer's entire lifespan. We're comparing the machine with a B energy label and 8kg load capacity here as well, using a dryer with an average lifespan of 12 years as an example. If you get an A+++ model, you'll save up to € 999 over its lifespan.

Difference in load capacity

Load capacity AEG 7000

AEG 7000: ranges from 7 to 8kg

Do you live alone or with 2 to 4 people? Then the 7000 series gives you the option of a dryer with a 7 or 8kg load capacity. This allows you to do the laundry multiple times a week. If you have a family with 3 or more kids, the drum of the 7000 series will be too small. Always make sure the drum is large enough, so you can dry a large amount of laundry in 1 go.

Load capacity AEG 8000

AEG 8000: ranges from 8 to 9kg

If there are 3 or 4 people living in your house or you have a household of 5 or more people, you should buy an AEG 8000 series dryer. This series has dryers with 8 to 9kg capacities, where a large family would need a 9kg model. If you have a small household but still want an 8000 model, it's no problem. The load sensor adjusts the drying time to the amount of laundry, which saves time and energy.

Difference AEG 8000 vs. 9000 dryer

Do you want the dryer to not only adjust the drum motion, but also evenly dry different fabrics simultaneously? Check the difference between an AEG 8000 and 9000 dryer. A 9000 model has a FiberPro moisture sensor that measures the moisture in your laundry. The dryer adjusts the heat distribution based on the amount of moisture in the fabric. If one article of clothing is a little more moist than other, it'll receive more care. That means you'll never need to sort your laundry again.
