Difference in technology
AEG 8000: suitable for all laundry
If you want to dry your woolen sweater or silk blouse, the AbsoluteCare technology will benefit you. With it, the dryer adjusts its drum motions and rotation speed to the type of laundry, so your clothes retain their shape and don't wear as much. With a silk cycle, the drum slowly rotates to the left and right. This reduces creases, and you won't need to worry about wear.
AEG 9000: suitable for drying all laundry simultaneously
Like an AEG 8000 model, the 9000 series adjusts its drum motion to the type of laundry. That way, your clothes will continue to look good for longer. Besides AbsoluteCare, the 9000 series also has FiberPro. This is a moisture sensor that measures which parts of your laundry are the wettest. If one item of clothing is wetter than another, the dryer will adjust the heat distribution. That means you won't need to sort everything before putting it in the drum.
Difference in energy consumption
AEG 8000: saves € 838 to € 999
Among the 8000 series, there are dryers with an A++ or A+++ energy label. If you get an A++ model, you'll save at least € 838 on energy costs over the machine's entire lifespan. This estimation is made compared to a condenser dryer with a B energy label. For this estimation, we assume an 8kg model that lasts 12 years on average. An A+++ model saves € 999 over its lifespan on average.
AEG 9000: saves € 999
The 9000 series has an A+++ energy label by default, so it's the most energy efficient of all the AEG dryers. Let's say the heat pump dryer lasts 12 years. You'll save € 999 on average over the machine's entire lifespan. We make this estimation compared to a condenser dryer with a B energy label. We assume an 8kg model here.
Difference in load capacity
AEG 8000: ranges from 8 to 9kg
When buying an AEG 8000 dryer, you can choose either an 8 or a 9kg load capacity. If you choose 8kg, the drum is big enough for the laundry of 3 or 4 people. If you choose an 8000 dryer with a 9kg load capacity, it's suitable for 5 or more people.
AEG 9000: only 8kg
AEG's 9000 series currently only has an 8kg model. This can dry the laundry of 3 or 4 people. If you have a large family, it's possible that the drum fills up more quickly and that you'll need to dry multiple times.
