Conclusion: 

AEG is pretty good in making low budget tumble dryers. With sensor drying, reversible door and reverse tumble action, this AEG T65170AV dryer will work to suit your lifestyle. The design and the lack of digital display and timer, as well as the fact that the filter is not easy to clean are the reasons why some people opt for other dryers, but all in all, this AEG dryer is worth the money.
