Every wash is different and our machines offer bespoke results. Think of the programme time first presented as a "best guess".  

The sensors in the machine after approximately 15 minutes will start to calculate if the wash needs a little longer or if it can save time and energy but not over washing unnecessarily and reducing the time.

The washing machine automatically adjusts the program duration to the amount of washing. The sensor also measures how dirty your laundry is. As soon as the detection is complete, the "kg" indication disappears. You now see the shortened program duration; the washing program starts. Every AEG washing machine has a ProSense load sensor. 

As soon as you press the start button, the washing machine weighs how much laundry is in the drum. The drum rotates a few times while "kg" flashes in the display.  And the calculating sensors have started to measure and make their calculations.
