Safety instructions
Safety instructions
It is most important that this instruction book should be retained with
the appliance for future reference. Should the appliance be sold or
transferred to another owner, or should you move house and leave the
appliance, always ensure that the book is supplied with the appliance in
order that the new owner can get to know the functioning of the appliance and the relevant warnings.
The safety of AEG appliances complies with the industry standards and
with legal requirements on the safety of appliances. However, as manufacturers, we feel it is our duty to provide the following safety notes.
You MUST read them carefully before installing or using the appliance.
General safety
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the machine
yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local Service Force
Centre or your AEG dealer. . Always insist on genuine AEG spare parts.
• Before starting the appliance check that the rated voltage and the
type of current indicated on the rating plate correspond to those
which exist where the dryer is installed. The type of fuse is also indicated on the rating plate.
• Never start the appliance if the electrical supply cable is damaged or
the control panel or worktop are so damaged that inner components
can be reached.
• Risk of fire: items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or
cooking oil constitute a fire hazard and should not be placed in the
tumble dryer
• If you have washed your laundry with stain remover you must execute an extra rinse cycle before loading your tumble dryer.
• Unplug the appliance before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance operations.
• Never pull the power supply cable to remove the plug from the
socket; always take hold of the plug itself.
• Do not lean on the open door, the appliance could turn over.
• Never spray the machine with a jet of water. Danger of electric shock!
• If the drying programme is interrupted in order to remove the laundry: the laundry and the drum could be very hot.

Safety instructions
Child safety
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous electrical appliances
can be. When the machine is working, they should be carefully supervised and not be allowed to play with the appliance - there is a risk
that they could become trapped inside.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film, polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into the drum.
Positioning and connection
• Follow the separate instructions for positioning and connection.
• Check that the appliance has not been damaged during transport.
Never connect a damaged appliance! If this is the case, contact your
dealer.
• The dryer must not be installed in a room where the temperature can
fall below zero or is higher than + 35°C.
• The dryer must be levelled.
• The dryer must not be positioned on a thick pile carpet as this would
prevent air from circulating freely through the ventilation slots.
• If the appliance is installed near a gas, coal or electric heater, an insulating non-inflammable panel must be inserted between the dryer
and the heater (size: 85x57.5 cm).
• The plug of the dryer must always be accessible.
• The dryer’s exhaust must not be fed into a cooker hood, or a chimney
or flue pipe designed to carry the exhaust from a fuel burning appliance.
• Ensure the room is well ventilated.
• A permanent connection to the mains power supply can only be carried out by a qualified electrician.

Safety instructions
Proper use
• For safety reasons, the appliance must not be modified.
• This appliance is designed for domestic use only. If the dryer is used
for any other purposes or is not used correctly, the manufacturer
accepts no responsibility for any possible damage that might occur.
• Dry only items that have been washed with water. Never dry items
that have been in contact with inflammable solvents (petrol, methylated spirits, dry cleaning fluid and the like). These are of a volatile
nature and could cause an explosion or a fire.
• Items containing rubber foam or materials similar to rubber foam
must not be dried in the appliance. Fire danger!
General instructions
• Starched fabrics leave traces of starch in the drum, therefore they
should not be dried in the appliance.
• If the load to be dried exceeds the maximum weight indicated, creasing may occur. For particularly delicate fabrics, the maximum load
should not exceed 1.5 kg.
• For your information: 70 per cent of fabric wear is caused by wearing the garments, 20 percent by washing and only 10 percent by drying them in a tumble
dryer. In your appliance, fluff accumulates in the filter. Only 0.03g fluff per Kilo
will be lost by your laundry when being machine dried.

Tips for environmental protection
Tips for environmental protection
• During washing, try not to use fabric softeners!
If the laundry is machine dried, it will remain soft even without using
fabric softeners.
• Shake out your laundry!
Shake out the laundry before putting it into the dryer in order to
reduce the drying time and creasing.
• Spin the laundry properly before drying it!
As a general rule, the more the laundry is spun, the more economically your dryer works.
In the following table, indications on consumption are provided,
according to the spin speed. The data refers to 6 kg of laundry that
have to be store dried.

Drying
End of drying cycle
If the laundry is not removed at the end of the cycle, the dryer performs an anti-creasing phase (duration: 30 minutes maximum).
If you do not remove the laundry, the dryer will stop automatically at
the end of the anti-creasing phase.
The “EINDE/FIN” and “FILTER/FILTRE” lights remain lit and the buzzer
sounds for 2 minutes.
The light of the “START/PAUSE-MARCHE/PAUSE” button goes off and
a flashing zero appears on the display.
Switch the tumble dryer off
Turn the programme selector dial to “UIT/ARRET”; all the lights go out.
The appliance is switched off.
Remove the laundry.
If you open and then close the door before turning the programme selector dial to “UIT/ARRET”, all the lights corresponding to the
phases making up the performed programme come on and the display shows the duration of the programme.
Important!
If the drying programme has to be stopped before it reaches the
end, we recommend that you turn the programme selector dial to
position “AFKOELEN/REFROID.” and wait until the end of this phase
before removing the laundry. This will avoid a build-up of heat
inside the appliance. To do this first turn the dial to “UIT/ARRET”
and then to “AFKOELEN/REFROID.” and depress “START/PAUSEMARCHE/PAUSE” button.
Clean the filters
To ensure free circulation of air during the drying cycle, the fluff filters must be cleaned after each drying cycle, before removing the
laundry.

Adjusting the level of conductivity
Adjusting the level of conductivity
Water contains, a variable quantity of limestone and mineral salts of
which quantities vary according to geographical locations thus varying its conductivity values.
Relevant variations of the conductivity of the water compared to
those prefixed by the factory could slightly influence the residual
humidity of the laundry at the end of the cycle.
Your dryer allows you to regulate the sensitivity of the drying sensor based on
conductivity values of the water by using the following procedure.
Procedure:
Turn the programme selector dial to switch on the appliance
In selection mode press simultaneously the buttons 3 and 6 until «C0»
appears on the digits.

This position on the programme selector dial can be used to freshen the laundry (e.g. to
remove a persistent odour of moth-balls).
Load
It is often difficult to estimate the weight of items to be dried. We therefore recommend that
you adopt the following guidelines:
• cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
• synthetics: drum no more than half full;
• delicate fabrics: drum no more than one third full.

Hints & Tips on drying
Hints & Tips on Drying
Care symbols
Before placing articles of laundry in your tumble dryer, check the care
labels to ensure they are recommended for tumble drying.
Basically, this fabric can be tumble dried; however the manufacturer does not
specify whether it can be dried with normal or low temperature.
Normal drying (normal temperature)
Gentle drying (low temperature)
Do not tumble dry
If none of these symbols is found:
Dry cottons, as well as mixed fabrics, at normal temperature. Press the
“LAGE TEMP/DELICAT” button when delicate cottons have to be dried.
It is advisable to take into consideration the care symbols on garment
labels when buying them.
• Wool, eiderdowns
Do not dry any woollen items in the tumble dryer! They can felt!
Eiderdowns can be tumble dried only if the corresponding care symbol is present.
• Fabrics sensitive to high temperatures
Dry fabrics sensitive to high temperatures (such as acrylic or viscose)
and items bearing the
care symbol using a synthetic drying programmes.
• Tricot garments, knitwear
Tricot garments and knitwear tend to shrink.
Do not overdry these items. High quality products are less likely to
shrink.
• New coloured fabrics
Do not dry new coloured fabrics with light-coloured laundry. This
could lead to discoloration!

Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters are clean.
The filters collect all the fluff which accumulates during drying and
they must therefore be cleaned at the end of each programme, before
removing the laundry, with a damp cloth.
The filter in the inner door must be removed for cleaning.

In the chapter “Something not working?” some problems that can be
solved by yourself are listed. Read this section in the event of problems.
If you are not able to find a solution, contact the Service centre. It is
close by and, if necessary, an engineer will soon be with you. (Addresses and telephone numbers are given on the enclosed form).
In all cases, set your speech before calling, in order to facilitate
troubleshooting: the engineer will be able to decide whether a service
visit is necessary.
Take note of the serial number (Ser. No.) and the product number (Prod.
No.) indicated on the rating plate.

• When the fault occurs.
When can a service visit be charged during the guarantee period?
- when it should have been possible to solve the problem by yourself,
with the help of the troubleshooting chart (see section “Something
not working?”)
- when the engineer has to come out several times because he has
not been given all the relevant information he needs and so, for
example, has to fetch spare parts. Repeated trips can be avoided if
you prepare your call to the Service centre as described above.
