Safety
The safety aspects of AEG electrical appliances comply with accepted
technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. However, as
manufacturers we regard it as our responsibility to inform you about
the following safety instructions.
Before Using for the First Time
• Refer to the "Installation and Connection Instructions" further on in
this user information.
• If units are delivered in the winter months at minus temperatures:
Store the washing machine at room temperature for a few hours before putting it into operation.
Correct Use
• The washing machine is only intended for washing normal domestic
washing. If the appliance is used for a wrong purpose or wrongly operated, the manufacturer cannot assume any liability for any damages.
• Additions or modifications to the washing machine are strictly forbidden due to safety reasons.
• Use only detergent which is suitable for washing machines. Refer to
the detergent manufacturer's instructions.
• The washing must not contain any flammable solvents. Also bear this
in mind when washing pre-cleaned washing.
• Do not use the washing machine for dry-cleaning.
• Dyes /dye-removing agents may only be used in the washing machine
if the manufacturer expressly permits use of these products. We cannot accept liability for any damage.
• Use only water from the water mains. Use rain water or service water
only if it meets the requirements defined in DIN 1986 and DIN 1988.
• Frost damage is not covered by the warranty! If the washing machine
is in a room subject to possible frost hazards, emergency emptying
must be carried out if there is a risk of frost (see the Section "Carrying out emergency emptying“).
6
Operating Instructions
Safety of Children and Infirm Persons
• Packaging materials (e.g. films, polystyrene) can be dangerous for
children. Risk of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.
• The appliance is not intendet for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
• Children frequently cannot recognise hazards involved in handling
electrical appliances. Therefore, ensure that they are properly supervised during operation and never allow children to play with the
washing machine -there is a risk that they can lock themselves inside it.
• Ensure that children or small animals do not climb into the washing
machine's drum.
• When disposing of washing machines pull out the mains plug, destroy
the door lock, cut off the electrical supply lead and dispose of the
plug and remaining cable. This means that playing children cannot
shut themselves in and cannot encounter a potentially lethal hazard.
General Safety
• Repairs to washing machines may only be carried out by skilled
persons. Improper repairs can cause significant hazards for the user.
If your appliance needs repairing, please contact customer service or
your dealer.
• Never put the washing machine into operation if the mains cable is
damaged or if the control panel, work top or base area is damaged in
such a way that the inside of the appliance is openly accessible.
• Before cleaning, care and maintenance work, switch off the washing
machine. Also, pull the mains plug out of the socket, or - in the case
of permanent connection - switch off the LS switch in the fuse box
or completely unscrew the screw-in fuse.
• If operation is stopped, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and shut off the tap.
• Never pull the mains plug out of the socket by the cable. Always use
the plug.
• Multiple connectors, couplings and extension cables must not be
used. Fire hazard through overheating!
• Do not spray down the washing machine with a water jet. Danger of
electrical shock!
• The glass in the filling door become hot when high-temperature
washing programmes are used. Do not touch!
7
Operating Instructions
• Allow the washing solution to cool down before performing and
emergency emptying of the appliance, before cleaning the solution
pump or before an emergency opening of the filling door.
• Small animals can chew on power cables and water hoses. This can
cause a danger of electric shock and water damage. Keep small
animals away from washing machines.
2
Disposal
Disposing of the Packaging Material!
Dispose of the packaging of your washing machine correctly. All pakkaging materials used are environmentally-compatible and recyclable.
• Plastic parts are identified with internationally standardised abbreviations:
>PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. packing films.
>PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. cushion parts (always CFC-free)
>POM< for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clips.
• Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and
should be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling.
Disposing of your old appliance!
When you put your unit out of operation one day, please bring it to
your nearest recycling centre or to your dealer.
2
Environmental Tips
• You do not need to use a pre wash cycle or soak for washing with average soiling. This saves detergent, water and time (and protects the
environment).
• When loaded to the capacities indicated the washing machine is especially efficient.
• For small loads, use only one half to two thirds of the recommended
quantity of detergent.
• By pre-treating stains and marks you will be able to wash at a lower
temperature.
• It is often possible to wash without using softener. Give it a try! If
you use a drier, your washing will be soft and fluffy even without a
softener.
• For medium to high water hardness (from hardness range II, see “Detergents and Conditioners”) you should use water softener. The
detergent can then always be dosed as for hardness range I (= soft).

Operating Instructions
t } (COTTONS/LINEN, EASY-CARES)
Wash programme between 20 °C and 95 °C, may be used for all cotton
and linen washing (cottons/linen), easy-cares (blended fabrics, e.g., cotton/polyester) and synthetics. The wash programme adjusts to suit the
various types of fabric and quantities. If there is mostly cotton/linen a
suitable cottons/linen programme is carried out; if there is more synthetic material a programme for easy-cares is selected. If the machine
is loaded exclusively with easy-cares the quantity should not exceed
2.5 kg in order to avoid creasing.
w (STARCHING)
Separate starching, separate rinsing, separate conditioning or separate
soaking of damp washing (1 rinse, liquid conditioner is added from the
compartment æ, spin).
If a separate rinse is carried out do not put any conditioner into the
compartment.
v (DRAIN)
The water is pumped away after a rinse hold (without spin).
3
Rinse hold means: the washing remains in the last rinsing water and is
not spun.
K (SPIN)
The water is pumped out at the end of a rinse hold and spin, or hand
washed cottons/linen and easy cares are spun separately.
L (SHORT SPIN)
The water is pumped out at the end of a rinse hold and short spin, or
delicate fabrics (delicates, woollens) are given a separate short spin at
low revs.
à (DELICATES)
Wash programme for delicates at 30 °C or 40 °C.
s (WOOL) / P (Hand wash)
Wash programme (cold to 40 °C) for machine-washable woollens and
for hand-washable woollen fabrics bearing the ï care symbol (hand
wash).
Ñ (SILK) / P (Hand wash)
Wash programme at 30 °C for hand and machine-washable silk.
3
As silk is a very sensitive fabric, we recommend that you only wash one
item of clothing at a time, and that such items never be washed with
other rough fabrics. A still more gentle wash is possible for extremely
sensitive silk fabrics using the ] (TIME SAVER) button.
11
Operating Instructions
f (FASHION)
A particularly gentle special programme at 40 °C for modern fabrics
such as viscose, modal, cupro, lyocell, with a gentler wash action than
the à (DELICATES) programme, but washing more thoroughly than
the hand wash programmes.
g (REFRESH)
A special programme lasting approx. 20 minutes at 30 °C to give fabrics
a quick wash, such as, for example, very slightly soiled sports clothes
that have been worn only once.
<(EASY IRON)
Wash programme at 40 °C for easy-care fabrics that will only need to
be ironed lightly, if at all, at the conclusion of the programme.
2
ECO (ENERGY SAVING)
A wash programme at approx. 60 °C that is particularly economical on
electricity and water for slightly to normally soiled cotton and linen
washing (cottons/linen) with an extended washing time.
Programme Option Buttons
The programme option buttons are used to adapt
the wash programme to suit the degree of soiling of
the washing. For washing with a normal degree of
soiling such programme options as k (PRE WASH)
and ä (STAIN) are not necessary.
The different functions can be combined with one
another depending on the programme.
k (PRE WASH )
(Pre wash/Soaking)
Cold pre wash prior to the main wash cycle that follows automatically. Using the b (DELAY TIMER)
button pre wash can be changed to warm soaking.
e (SENSITIVE)

frequently such as when the wearer has sensitive skin. +Á (RINSE+)
may be selected in addition.
12
Operating Instructions
ä (STAIN)
For treating heavily soiled or stained washing. (In-wash stain treatment
or tablets are washed in from the compartment at the optimal point in

Operating Instructions
Wash Time Display

The wash times for the wash programmes
depend on the usual washing practice and
the ambient conditions at the place of installation. The washing type and quantity,
the type of washing detergent, the water temperature and the room
temperature etc. can influence the duration of the wash programme.
What does “UPDATE” mean?
The wash programmes in your washing machine are controlled by software.
New types of fabric or new detergents may require new wash programmes in the future. In most cases, the software can be adapted to
this.
For further information on a possible “update” please contact customer
service.
Anti-flood system Aqua Control +
Aqua Alarm
In the event of damage to the supply hose, the system blocks the further supply of water to the unit directly st the water tap.
If water escapes at another point, the drainage pump pumps the water
off automatically - even if the unit is switched on. It is merely necessary for the washing machine to be connected to the mains. If the antiflood system responds, a warning signal sounds at the same time.
15
Operating Instructions
Before the First Wash
0
Run a wash cycle without washing; t } (COTTONS/LINEN, EASYCARES 95) programme with half the amount of washing detergent. This
removes any residues from the drum and solution container which may
have been left during manufacturing.
Preparing a Wash Load
Sorting and preparing a wash load
• Sort the washing according to care symbol (see “Washing Types and
Care Symbols”).
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent the washing tangling and being damaged: close
zippers, button up duvet covers and pillow cases, and tie up loose
straps such as from aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered fabric inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• In the case of knitted coloured fabrics and also wool and fabrics with
jewellery attached: turn inside out.
• Place small and delicate articles (baby booties, stockings, bras etc.)
into a washing net, a pillow case with zipper, or in large socks before
washing.
• Handle curtains with particular care. Metal fittings or burred, plastic
fittings must be removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept
liability for damage.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. This could transfer colour to white washing or turn it grey.
• New coloured items often have an excess of colour. It is better to
wash such items separately the first time.
• Mix small and large items of washing. This improves the wash efficiency and the washing is more evenly distributed during the spin cycle.
• Shake out washing before placing into the washing machine.

Operating Instructions
Washing Types and Care Symbols
The care symbols help you choose the correct wash programme. Washing should be sorted according to type and care symbol. The temperatures indicated in the care symbols are all maximum temperatures.
Cottons ç
Fabrics made from cotton and linen with this care symbol will withstand maximum wash actions and high temperatures. The t }
(COTTONS/LINEN, EASY-CARES) programme is suitable for this type of
washing.
Linen è ë
Fabrics made from cotton and linen which carry this care symbol will
withstand maximum wash actions. The t } (COTTONS/LINEN,
EASY-CARES) programme is suitable for this type of washing.
Easy-care washing ê í
Fabrics such as treated cotton, cotton mixed fabrics and synthetics
which carry this care symbol need a gentler wash action. The t }
(COTTONS/LINEN, EASY-CARES) and < (EASY IRON) programmes are
available for this type of washing.
Delicates ì
Fabrics such as those with layered fibres, microfibres, synthetics and curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful handling. The
à (DELICATES) programme is appropriate for these types of washing.
Viscose í ì
Modern fabrics such as viscose, cupro, lyocell, modal and others require
particularly careful handling. The f (FASHION) programme is appropriate for these types of washing.
Woollens, silk and particularly delicate wash items 9 ì ï
Fabrics such as wool, wool mixtures and silk which carry these care
symbols require a very gentle wash cycle. The s (WOOL)/P (Hand
wash) and Ñ (SILK)/P (Hand wash) programmes are suitable for this
type of fabric.
Important! Fabrics which bear the care symbol ñ (Do not wash!)
may not be machine washed!

Operating Instructions
Detergents and care agents
Which detergent and care agent?
Use only detergents and care agents which are suitable for use in washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
How much detergent and care agent?
The required quantity depends upon:
• extent of soiling of the washing
• on the hardness class of the mains water
• the amount of washing
2
If the detergent manufacturer does not give any metering quantities
for small loads, add a third less for half a load or only half the amount
of detergent for small loads for < (EASY IRON) which is recommended for a full load.
Observe the instructions for use and dosing provided by the detergent
and conditioner manufacturer.
Water softener
For medium to high water hardness (hardness class II upwards), you
should use softener. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent for hardness class I
(= soft). The responisable water works will provide information on the
local water hardness.
2
Since the water softener is rinsed in before the main detergent (water
pre-softening), 80% of the stated quantity of softener shown on the
package is sufficient.

Operating Instructions
If the washing results are not satisfactory
If the washing has turned grey and if limescale is deposited in the
drum, then
• Too little detergent was used.
• The wrong detergent was used.
• Special soiling was not pre-treated.
• Program or temperature not set correctly.
• If multi-component detergents are used, the individual components
were not used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey spots on the washing,
• Washing soiled with ointments, grease or oils was washed with too
little detergent.
• Too lower temperature was used for washing.
• A frequent cause is that softener - particularly that in concentrated
form - has reached the washing. Wash out such spots quickly and use
the softener concerned carefully.
If at the end of the last rinse foam is still visible
• Modern detergents can also cause foam in the last rinse. However,
the washing is still sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white remnants on the washing
• These are insoluble components of modern detergents. They are not
the result of an insufficient rinsing effect.
Shake or brush out the washing. In future, perhaps you should turn
the washing inside out before washing it. Examine your choice of detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.

Installation and connection instructions
Installation of the appliance
3
Washing machines with curved panels are not suitable for installing
under units.
Transporting the appliance
• Do not place the washing machine on its front or on its right side
(viewed from the front). Otherwise, electrical components can get
wet.
• Never transport the unit without the transport safeguard. Do not remove the transport safeguard until the appliance is at the installation
location. Transporting the unit without the transport safeguard can
damage it.
• Lift the appliance neither by an open filling door nor by the base.
When transporting the unit with a sack trolley:
• Attach the sack trolley only at the side. The sack trolley shovel must
not be longer than 24 cm, otherwise the float switch can be destroyed.

Installation and connection instructions
Prepare the installation place
• The installation surface must be clean and dry, free of floor polish
residues and other greasy coatings so that the unit does not slip
away. Do not use lubricants as a sliding aid.
• Installation on a high-veil carpet or floor tiles with soft sponge backs
is not recommended because the standing safety of the appliance is
then no longer ensured.
• By installation surfaces with small-format tiles, lay a conventional
rubber mat underneath.
• Minor unevenness of the floor surface should never be levelled out by
laying pieces of wood, card or similar materials, but rather should always be compensated for by adjusting the screw feet.
• If, for space reasons, it is not possible to avoid setting up the unit directly next to a gas or coal-fired cooker: install a thermal insulation
panel between the cooker and washing machine (85 x 57cm) which
must have an aluminium film on the side against the cooker.
• The washing machine must not be set up in a room where there is a
danger of frost. Frost hazard!
• Flexible feed and drain tubings may not be crinkled or squeezed.
Installation on a concrete base
If the unit is set up on a concrete base,
for safety reasons it is essential to fit
stand plates in which the washing machine is adjusted. The stand plates are
available from Customer Service under
the spare parts number 645 425 058.
Installation on vibrating floors
Where the floor vibrates, particularly in the case of wooden beam
floors with pliable boards, securely screw a water-resistant wooden
panel at least 15mm thick onto at least 2 floor planks. If possible, set up
the unit in the corner of a room, as the wooden floor is optimally restrained there and is therefore least likely to be subject to resonance vibrations.
47
Installation and connection instructions
Compensate for floor unevenness
Automatic adjustment foot: The rear left foot of your washing machine is designed as a spring leg. This means that it guarantees that
your unit will stand securely even at high spin speeds.
If, nevertheless, the washing machine is unstable during spinning,
please proceed as follows:
0 1. Set the three adjusted feet at the
nominal value of 10 mm. To do
this, use the supplied special
spanner to remove the transport
safeguard.
If the automatically adjusting
foot does not reach the floor:
2. Automatic adjustment foot (rear
left) manually for extending the
reqired dimension.
3. If necessary, check the setting
with a spirit level.
Caution! Never use wood, card or
similar underlays to level out minor
floor unevenness. Instead, always adjust
the adjustment foot.

48
Installation and connection instructions
Electrical connection
Details of the mains voltage, current
type and required fuses can be
found on the rating plate. The rating plate is located at the top
above the filling door.
For permanent electrical connection
within the electrical circuit, provisions must be made which allow for electrical disconnection of the appliance from the mains with a contact opening of at least 3 mm at all
poles. Suitable devices include circuit breakers, fuses (threaded fuses
must be entirely removed from the socket), ground fault circuit interrupters and contactors. Permanent connection may only be carried out
by an authorised electrician.
;
This appliance complies with the following EC directives:
– The "Low Voltage Directive" 72/23/EU with changes
– The "EMC Directive" 89/336/EU with changes
Water connection
3
The washing machine has safety features which prevent back-contamination of the drinking water and which conform to the national regulations of the water authorities (e.g. for Germany: DVGW guidelines).
This means that additional protective measures in the installation are
not necessary.
Important!
– Units for connecting to cold water must not be connected to hot water.
– Use only new hose sets for the connection.
Permissible water pressure
The water pressure must be at least 1 bar (= 10 N/cm2 = 0.1 Mpa), maximum 10 bar = 100 N/cm2 = 1 Mpa).
• If more than 10 bar: Connect a pressure-reduction valve upstream.
• If less than 1 bar: Unscrew the inlet hose on the unit side at the solenoid intake valve and remove the flow regulator (to do this, remove
the filter with pointed pliers and take out the rubber washer behind).
Replace the filter.
49
Installation and connection instructions
Water inflow
A pressure hose 1.5m in length is supplied.
If a longer inflow hose is required, only a VDE-approved, complete set
of hoses with fitted hose screw connections offered by our Customer
Service is permissible.
– Hose sets in lengths of 2.2m, 3.5m and 5m are available for washing
machines without Aqua-Control.
– Hose sets in lengths of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.9m are available for washing machines with Aqua-Control.
Caution! Never cut into pieces in order to extend the hoses!

– Do not lay the infeed hose vertically downwards. Instead, turn
it to the right or left as shown
in the diagram.
– Tighten the hose connection
only by hand.
2. Connect the hose with the straight connection
to a water tap with a R 3/4 (inch) screw thread.
Caution! Only tighten the screw connection manually.
3. By slowly opening the water tap before putting
the washing machine into operation, check that
the connection is free of leaks.

Installation and connection instructions
Water drain
The drainage hose can either be connected to a siphon or hung in a
wash basin or discharge basin or a bath tub.
Only original hoses may be used for extensions (max. 3m laid on the
floor and then up to 80cm high). Customer Service stocks drainage
hoses in lengths of 2.7 and 4m.
Important! It is essential to lay the drainage hose without kinks.
0
Water drain-off inside a siphon
The grommet on the hose end fits all
standard siphon types.
Secure the connection between the
grommet and siphon with a hose clamp.
Water drain-off inside a basin
Important!
– Small basins are not suitable for
drainage. Water could overflow!
– The end of the drainage hose must not
be submerged in the pumped-out water. Otherwise, the water could be
sucked back into the unit.
0
– When hanging in a wash basin or a
bath tub, the drainage hose must be
secured with the supplied attachable
bend to prevent it slipping. The backsurge force of the escaping water
could otherwise force the hose out of
the basin.
Tie the bend to the tap or the wall using
a piece of string.
Delivery heads over 1m
To pump off the washing / rinsing solution, every washing machine has
a drain pump which carries liquids up to a height of 1m via the drainage hose, calculated from the machine's standing surface.
Please contact Customer Service for delivery heads of over 1m.

In the chapter "What to do if...“ , some faults are listed which you can
remedy yourself. Look there first if a fault occurs. If you do not find any
information there, please consult your Customer Service. (You can find
the addresses and telephone numbers in the section "Customer Service
Centres“.)
Always prepare in advance for the discussion. By doing so you will simplify the diagnosis and the decision on whether customer service is
necessary.
Note the PNC number and S. number. You will find both on the rating
plate on the inside of the door of
your washing machine.
PNC .....................................................
S. No. .....................................................
Answer as precisely as possible:
• What form does the fault take?
• Under what circumstances does the fault occur?
• Does the multi display show an error message?
When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?
– If you could have remedied the fault yourself with the aid of the fault
table (see the section "What to do if..."),
– If several journeys by the customer service technician are necessary
because for example he did not receive all the important information
before his visit and must collect spare parts. These multiple trips can
be avoided if you prepare your phone call as described above.
