12.4 Fluff in the fabrics
During the washing and/or drying phase,
some types of fabric, (sponge, sweatshirt)
could release fluff.
The released fluff could stick to the
fabrics during the next cycle.
This inconvenient increases with
technical fabrics.
To prevent the fluff in your laundry, we
recommend that you:
• To do not wash dark fabrics after you
washed and dried light coloured
fabrics (new sponge, sweatshirt ) and
the contrary.
• To dry this type of fabrics at open air
when they are washed the first time.
• To clean the drain filter.
• After the drying phase, clean the
empty drum, the gasket and the door
with a wet cloth.
The indicator
comes on. The door is

13. HINTS AND TIPS
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
13.1 The laundry load
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that
are on the laundry care labels.
20
www.aeg.com
• Do not wash together white and
coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend
that you wash them separately for the
first times.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted
illustrations.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent heavy
soil stains.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove
the hooks or put the curtains in a
washing bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash in the appliance 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. If this
occurs, adjust manually the items in
the tub and start the spin phase
again.
13.2 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.
13.3 Detergents and additives
• Only use detergents and additives
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 for
woollens only.
• Do not mix different types of
detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the correct quantity of
detergent.
• Obey the instructions that you find on
the on packaging of these products.
• Use the correct products for the type
and colour of the fabric, the
programme temperature and the
level of soil.
• If your appliance has not the
detergent dispenser with the flap
device, add the liquid detergents with
a dosing ball (supplied by the
detergent's manufacturer).
13.4 Ecological hints
• Set a programme without the
prewash phase to wash laundry with
normal soil.
• Always start a washing programme
with the maximum allowed load of
laundry.
• If necessary, use a stain remover when
you set a programme with a low
temperature.
• To use the correct quantity of the
detergent, check the water hardness
of your domestic system. Refer to
"Water hardness".
13.5 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 know the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water authority.
Use the correct quantity of the water
softener. Obey the instructions that you
find on the packaging of the product.
13.6 Drying hints
Prepare the drying cycle
• Open the water tap.
• Do a check if the connection of the
drain hose is correct. Refer to

appliance.
Use the gloves. Remove the external film. If
necessary, use a cutter.
Remove the cardboard top. Remove the
polystyrene packaging materials.
Remove the internal film.
Open the door. Remove the polystyrene
piece from the door seal and all the items
from the drum.
ENGLISH
29
Put one of the polystyrene packaging
elements on the floor behind the appliance.
Carefully put down the appliance with the
rear side on it. Make sure not to damage the
hoses.
Remove the polystyrene protection from the
bottom. Pull up the appliance in vertical
position.

2
Remove the polystyrene block fitted on the
door seal (if present). Pull out all items from
the drum.
Remove the power supply cable and the
drain hose from the hose holders.
30
www.aeg.com
Remove the three bolts. Use the key supplied
with the appliance. Pull out the plastic
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.
16.2 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
31
• 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.
16.3 The inlet hose
• Connect the hose to the back appliance.
Turn the inlet hose only left or right.
• Loose the ring nut to set it in the correct
position.
45

O
O
• 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.
Water drainage
There are different procedures to connect the drain hose:
With the plastic hose guide:
32
www.aeg.com
• Making an U form 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
33
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 that remaining particles
go in 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.
16.4 Water-stop device
The inlet hose has a water stop device. This
device prevents water leaks in the hose
because of its natural ageing.
The red sector in the window «A» shows this
fault.
If this occur, close the water tap and contact
the service centre to replace the hose.
