1) If using liquid detergent, a programme without Prewash must be selected.
2) To reduce creasing, this cycle regulates the water temperature and performs a soft wash and spin
phase. The appliance adds some rinses.
3) During this cycle the drum rotates slowly to ensure a gentle wash. It can seem that the drum doesn't
rotate or doesn't rotate properly, but this is normal for this programme.
4) Standard programmes for the Energy Label consumption values. According to regulation
1061/2010, these programmes are respectively the «Standard 60°C cotton programme» and the «Standard 40°C cotton programme». They are the most efficient programmes in terms of combined energy and
water consumption for washing normally soiled cotton laundry.
The water temperature of the washing phase may differ from the temperature declared
for the selected programme.

WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
11.1 The laundry load
• Divide the laundry into: white,
coloured, synthetics, delicates and
wool.
• Follow the washing instructions on the
laundry care labels.
• Do not wash white and coloured
items together.
• Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend
that you wash them separately for the
first couple of times.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty pockets and unfold.
• Turn multilayered fabrics, wool and
items with printed illustrations inside
out.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash heavy soil stains with a special
detergent.
• Be careful with curtains. Remove the
hooks or put the curtains in a washing
bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash laundry without hems or
with cuts. Use a washing bag to wash
small and/or delicate items (e.g.
underwired bras, belts, tights, etc. ).
• A very small load can cause balance
problems with the spin phase leading
to excessive vibration. If this occurs:
a. interrupt the programme and
open the door (refer to
"Opening the door when a
programme or the delay start
operates");
ENGLISH
b. manually redistribute the load so
that the items are spaced evenly
around the tub;
c. press the Start/Pause button. The
spin phase continues.
11.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you pre-treat these
stains before you put the items in the
appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use
the special stain remover that is
applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
11.3 Detergents and other
treatments
• Only use detergents and other
treatments specially made for
washing machines:
– powder detergents for all types of
fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate
fabrics (40 °C max) and woollens,
– liquid detergents, preferably for
low temperature wash
programmes (60 °C max) for all
types of fabric, or special ones for
woollens only.
• Do not mix different types of
detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the recommended quantity

• Follow the instructions that you find
on the on packaging of these
products.
• Use the recommended products for
the type and colour of the fabric, the
programme temperature and the
level of soil.
11.4 Ecological hints
• Set a programme without the
prewash phase to wash laundry with
normal soil.
• Always start a washing programme
with the maximum load of laundry
allowed.
• If necessary, use a stain remover when
you set a programme with a low

• To use the correct quantity of
detergent, check the water hardness
of your domestic system. Refer to
"Water hardness".
11.5 Water hardness
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you
use a water softener for washing
machines. In areas where the water
hardness is soft it is not necessary to use
a water softener.
To find out the water hardness in your
area, contact your local water authority.
Use the correct quantity of water
softener. Follow the instructions that you
find on the packaging of the product.

spacers.
Put the plastic caps in the holes. You can find
these caps in the user manual bag.
We recommend that you keep the packaging and the transit bolts for any
movements of the appliance.
14.2 Positioning and levelling
• Install the appliance on a flat hard floor.
• Make sure that air circulation around the
appliance is not impeded by carpets, rugs
etc.
• Level the appliance by raising or lowering
the feet.
• The feet may be tight to adjust as they
incorporate a self locking nut, but the
appliance MUST be level and stable. If
necessary, check the setting with a spirit
level. Any necessary adjustment can be
made with a spanner. Accurate levelling
prevents vibration, noise and
displacement of the appliance during
operation.
ENGLISH
27
• After having levelled the appliance,
tighten the lock nuts.
WARNING!
Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under the appliance to
compensate for any unevenness in the floor.

• Connect the water inlet hose to the cold
water tap with 3/4 thread.
CAUTION!
Make sure that there are no
leaks from the couplings.
Do not use an extension hose if the inlet hose is too short. Contact the
service centre for the replacement of the inlet hose.
14.4 Water drainage
There are different procedures to connect the drain hose:
With the plastic hose guide.
28
www.aeg.com
• Make a U shape with the drain hose.
On the edge of a sink
• Make sure that the plastic guide cannot
move when the appliance drains. Attach
the guide to the water tap or the wall.
To a stand pipe with vent-hole
• Directly into a drain pipe at a height of not
less than 60 cm (23.6”) and not more than
100 cm (39.3”). Refer to the illustration.
• The end of the drain hose must always be
ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of the
drain pipe (min. 38 mm - min. 1.5”) must
be larger than the external diameter of the
drain hose.
Drain hose end
• If the end of the drain hose looks like this
(see the picture), you can push it directly
into the stand pipe.
Without the plastic hose guide.
ENGLISH
29
To a sink spigot
• Refer to the illustration. Put the drain hose
in the spigot and tighten it with a clip.
• Make sure that the drain hose makes a
loop to prevent particles going into the
appliance from the sink.
To a wall-pipe
• Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the room
wall and tighten it with a clip.
You can extend the drain hose to maximum 400 cm. Contact the service
centre for the other drain hose and the extension.
