Safety instructions
The safety of AEG/ELECTROLUX 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.
General safety
• Repairs to the machine must be carried out only by qualified personnel. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons could cause serious
danger. Contact your local AEG/ELECTROLUX Service Force Centre.
• Never start the machine if the electrical supply cable is damaged or
the control panel or worktop are so damaged that inner components
can be reached.
• 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.
• Never spray the machine with a jet of water. Danger of electric shock!
• During high temperature wash programmes the door glass may get
hot. Do not touch it!
• Let the water cool down before carrying out emergency emptying or
before opening the door in an emergency.
• Small animals can gnaw electric wires and water hoses causing electrocution hazard and damage due to water leaks.
Positioning, connection, starting up
• Follow the instructions for positioning and connection.
• Carry out a first wash without laundry (COTTONS 60, with half the
amount of detergent) in order to remove any manufacturing residue
from the tub and the drum.
• Should the machine be purchased in winter, when temperatures can
be below 0°, leave the appliance for 24 hours at ambient temperature
before starting it.

Safety instructions
Child safety
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous electrical appliances
can be. When the machine is working, children 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.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into the drum.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the electrical supply
cable and destroy the plug with the remaining cable. Disable the door
catch in order to prevent children from becoming trapped inside
while playing.
Proper use
• This appliance is designed for domestic use only. If the machine is
used for any other purposes or is not used correctly, the manufacturer accepts no responsibility for any damage that might occur.
• For safety reasons, the appliance must not be modified.
• Use only detergents suitable for washing machines and follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
• Garments which have been in contact with flammable solvents
should not be machine washed.
• Do not use your machine for dry cleaning.
• Dyes and bleaching agents may only be used if specifically permitted
by the manufacturer of these products. We cannot be held responsible for any damage.
• Always unplug the appliance and turn off the water tap after use.

Disposal
Packaging materials
The materials marked with the symbol
are recyclable.
>PE<=polyethylene
>PS<=polystyrene
>PP<=polypropylene
This means that they can be recycled by disposing of them properly in
appropriate collection containers.
Machine
Use authorised disposal sites for your old appliance. Help to keep your
country tidy!
The symbol
on the product or on its packaging indicates that this product may not be treated as household waste. Instead it shall be handed over
to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment. By ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you will
help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and
human health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste
handling of this product. For more detailed information about recycling of
this product, please contact your local city office, your household waste
disposal service or the shop where you purchased the product.
Tips for environmental protection
To save water, energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend
that you follow these tips:
• Normally soiled laundry may be washed without prewashing in order
to save detergent, water and time (the environment is protected too!).
• Use the energy saving programme when washing normally soiled garments.
• The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded.
• When small loads are washed, use only half to two thirds of the recommended amount of detergent.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling can be
removed; the laundry can then be washed at a lower temperature.
• If the water has a medium or high degree of hardness (starting from
hardness degree II, see “Detergents and additives”) water softeners
must be added.
The amount of detergent can then be adjusted to hardness degree I (= soft).

Main features of your washing machine
• Programme and temperature setting using the programme selector.
• Stain programme for effectively treating stained washing.
• Energy saving programme for normally soiled cotton items.
• Speed for the final spin can be reduced to 800, 700 or 500 rpm for
model 1046 EL, and to 900, 700 or 500 rpm for model 1246 EL.
• RINSE HOLD: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to
prevent creasing.
• Delay timer: programme start can be delayed up to 23 hours (e.g. to
times with a more economical power rate).
• Programme progress display showing the programme steps selected
and the programme phase which is running.
• Because of its gentle washing action, the special wool cycle washes
your garments with extreme care.
• 3-compartment drawer for detergent and fabric softener.
• Unbalance detection device: to prevent vibration during spinning.
• The ECO valve allows total use of detergent and reduces water consumption so saving energy.

Description of the appliance
Detergent dispenser drawer
Compartment for prewash or soak detergent and stain remover. The prewash
or soak detergent is added at the beginning of the wash programme. The
stain remover is added during the STAIN-Action phase in the main wash.
Compartment for powder or liquid detergent used for main wash.
It is emptied at the beginning of the wash cycle.
Compartment for liquid additives (fabric softener, starch).
It is emptied at the last rinse.
The quantity of additives must not exceed the “MAX” mark in the
drawer.
Before the first wash
Before your first wash, we recommend that you pour 2 litres of water
into the main wash compartment
of the detergent drawer in
order to activate the ECO valve.
Then, run a cotton cycle at 60°C, without any laundry in the
machine, to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and
tub.
Pour 1/2 a measure of detergent into the dispenser drawer and start the
machine.

Preparing the wash cycle
Sorting out and preparing the laundry
• Sort out the laundry according to type of fabrics and care labels (see
“Types of fabric and care labels”).
• Empty pockets.
• Remove any metal parts (safety pins, clips, etc.).
• To prevent the laundry from getting damaged and forming bundles,
it is advisable to close zips, button up pillowcases and quilt covers and
tie up loose straps such as those of aprons.
• Turn double faced items inside out (sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.)
• Turn coloured knitted fabrics, woollens and fabrics with trim inside
out.
• Wash small and delicate items (baby socks, tights) inside a laundry net
or in a pillow case closed with a zip, or in larger socks.
• Treat curtains with special care. Remove all metal or plastic hooks or
put them in a net or a bag. We take no responsibility for any damage.
• Whites and coloureds must be washed separately: white items can
loose their whiteness.
• New coloured fabrics often have excess dyes; it is advisable to wash
them separately for the first time.
• Wash small and large items together; this improves the washing result
and the laundry is better distributed during spinning.
• Shake out garments before putting them into the machine.
• Insert each garment separately.

The labels on garments help you to select the most suitable wash programme. The laundry should be sorted out according to the type of fabric and the instructions indicated on care labels.
Temperatures indicated on labels are always maximum temperatures.
Cotton 95
Linen and cottons marked with this symbol can be washed at high temperatures.
Cotton 60
Linen and cottons marked with this symbol are colourfast and can be
washed at 60°C.
Cotton 40 30
Garments marked with these symbols have delicate colours, therefore
the washing temperature must not exceed these values.
Synthetics 40 50 60
Mixed and synthetic fabrics marked with these symbols require a gentle
wash programme and they must therefore be washed using the specific
programme.

Detergents and additives
Which detergent and additive?
Use only detergents and additives for washing machines. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
How much detergent?
The quantity depends on:
• the load:
if the manufacturer does not provide any indications on the amount of
detergent for small loads, use about one third less than the suggested
amount for half loads and half the amount for very small loads;
• the degree of soil:
use a small amount of detergent for lightly soiled garments. Judge
the amount according to the detergent manufacturer’s instructions
and size of the load;
• the water hardness:
the harder the water, the more detergent required. Instructions
according to water hardness are given on the detergent pack.
Liquid detergent
Liquid detergent can be poured directly into the main wash compartment
of the dispenser drawer immediately before starting the programme, or
a special dispenser can be used that is placed directly in the drum. Measure the detergent according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Adding a water softener (descaling product)
A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree
of hardness (from degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to
degree of hardness I (= soft). Information on water hardness can be
obtained from your local water supply authority.

Cleaning and maintenance
Door seal
Check from time to time the door seal and
eliminate eventual possible objects that could
be trapped in the fold.
Drain pump
The pump should be inspected regularly and
particularly if
the machine does not empty and/or spin
the machine makes an unusual noise during draining due to objects
such as safety pins, coins etc. blocking the pump.
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the appliance.
If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.
Open the pump door.
Place a container close to the pump to collect any spillage.
Release the emergency emptying
hose, place it in
the container and
remove its cap.
When no more
water comes out,
unscrew the
pump and remove
it. Always keep a rag nearby to dry up
spillage of water when removing the pump.
Remove any objects from the pump
impeller by rotating it.
Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its
seat.
Screw the pump fully in.
Close the pump door.
Water inlet filter
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the
filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked.
Turn off the water tap.

Cleaning and maintenance
Unscrew the hose from the tap.
Clean the filter with a stiff brush.
Screw the hose back onto the tap.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain pipe are
clogged), proceed as follows to empty out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled;
• place a bowl on the floor;
• put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water come out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for
example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen
the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come
out slowly.
At the end screw the pump again.
Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop
below 0°C, proceed as follows:
• Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap.
• Place the end of the drain hose and the inlet hose in a bowl placed
on the floor.
• Select the “DRAIN” programme
and run it until the machine stops.
• Turn the programme selector dial to O (RESET).
• Remove the plug from the power socket.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its
place.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding
ice forming and consequently damage to the appliance.
When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0°C.
30
Important!
Every time you drain the water through the emergency emptying hose
you must pour 2 litres of water into the main wash compartment of the
detergent drawer and then run the DRAIN programme. This will activate
the ECO valve allowing a total use of the detergent in the next wash.

Something not working?
If during the spin cycle the machine makes an unusual
whistling noise, different from the noise made by traditional washing machines, this is due to a new type of
motor.
If water is not visible in the drum, this is due to
the modern technology of new washing
machines that use less water than traditional
machines.
Troubleshooting
If a problem arises, you can try to solve it yourself following the
instructions below.
If you call out an engineer when one of the following problems arises, or to repair a fault due to incorrect use, the call-out will be
charged even if requested within the guarantee period.
During machine operation the following alarm codes may be displayed:
- E10: problem with the water supply
- E20: problem with water draining
- E40: door open
An acoustic signal is clearly audible.
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button
to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem persists, contact your local AEG/ELECTROLUX Service Force Centre.

Unsatisfactory washing results
If the laundry looks grey and lime scale is found in the drum
• Too little detergent has been used.
• An unsuitable detergent has been used.
• Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.
• The programme/temperature has not been correctly selected.
If grey stains remain on the laundry
• Laundry stained with ointments, grease or oil has been washed with
an insufficient amount of detergent.
• The temperature selected for the wash programme was too low.
• Fabric softener - especially the concentrated type - has come into
direct contact with the laundry. Wash these stains immediately and
pour fabric softener carefully.
Foam is still visible even after the last rinse
• Modern detergents often produce foam, even in the last rinse. However the laundry has been completely rinsed.
White residue is left on the laundry
• This is due to insoluble components in modern detergents and is
therefore not the result of insufficient rinsing. Shake or brush the
laundry. In future, it may be better to turn garments inside out before
washing them. Check the choice of detergent; try using liquid detergents.

Service
In the section “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.
(Addresses and telephone numbers are given on the enclosed leaflet).
In all cases, explain your problem carefully, in order to facilitate troubleshooting: the engineer will be able to decide whether a service call
is necessary.
Take note of the serial number (Ser.No.) and the product number (Prod.
No.) indicated on the rating plate.

Furthermore, try to specify, as precisely as possible:
- The symptoms of the fault
- When the fault occurs
- The alarm code displayed
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.

Installation
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not impeded by
carpets, rugs etc.
• Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.
• Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of
wood, cardboard or similar materials under the machine.
• If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas
cooker or coal-burning stove, an insulating panel (85x57 cm) covered
with aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be
inserted between the two appliances;
• The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature
can drop below 0.
• The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.
• Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.
Levelling
Carefully level by screwing the adjustable
feet in or out. Never place cardboard, wood
or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the
floor.
Water inlet
Connect the
water inlet hose
supplied with the
machine to a
separate tap
with a 3/4"
thread. Do not
use already
employed hoses.
Important!
Before connecting up the machine to new pipework or to pipework
that has not been used for some time, run off a reasonable amount of
water to flush out any debris that may have collected in the pipes.

Installation
The other end of the inlet hose which connects to the machine can be
turned in any direction. Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the hose and
retighten the fitting, making sure there are no water leaks.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too short and you do not
wish to move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially designed for this type of use.
Water drainage
The end of the drain hose can be positioned
in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink using the
plastic hose guide supplied with the
machine. In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the machine
is emptying.
This could be done by tying it to the tap
with a piece of string or attaching it to the
wall.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch must be above the trap so that
the bend is at least 60 cm above the ground.
Directly into a
drain pipe at a
height of not less
than 60 cm and
not more than
90 cm.
The end of the
drain hose must always be ventilated, i.e. the inside diameter of the
drain pipe must be larger than the outside diameter of the drain hose.
The drain hose must not be kinked.
For a correct functioning of the machine the drain hose must
remain hooked on the proper support piece situated on the top
part of the back side of the appliance.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase,
50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum
load required (2.2 kW), also taking into account any other appliances in
use.

Installation
Connect the machine to an earthed socket.
The manufacturer does not accept any responsibility for damage or
injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution.
Permanent connection
In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a
double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply
(mains), with a minimum gap of 3 mm between the switch contacts and
of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the current
electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any
point.
This operation must be performed by a qualified electrician.
Important: The power supply cable must be easily accessible after
installing the machine.
