Safety instructions
Before using
your machine for
the first time
- Follow the installation and connection instructions
- Do not connect a damaged machine (e.g. damaged
during transport)
- Small quantities of water in the detergent/additive
compartment are due to factory tests
- To remove residue from manufacturing in the wash drum
and dispenser compartment, a wash programme without
clothes should be carried out - e.g. colour wash 60°C with
a 1/2 measuring beaker of detergent.
Safety instructions for the user
The safety of AEG electrical appliances is in conformity with
recognized technical standards and current legislation.
Nevertheless, we feel obliged to point out to you and other
possible users the following :
- Ensure before switching on the machine that the nominal
voltage and current type indicated on the manufacturer’s
plate correspond with the voltage and current type where
the machine is to be used. The necessary fuse protection
should also be read off the rating plate.
- If your ÖKO-LAVAMAT is in a room subject to temperatures
below freezing, the water must be removed from the
machine should the danger of freezing be expected.
- Before cleaning, care and maintenance, ensure that the
machine is switched off. You are completely safe if you
remove the plug from the power-point, or, in the case of a
fixed installation, when the circuit breaker is open or the
cartridge-fuse is completely removed (see installation and
connection instructions).
- Never spray the machine with a jet of water.
- Never pull the plug out by pulling on the cord, but rather on
the plug itself.

Do not switch the machine on if
the electrical cord is damaged, or
if the machine shows signs of damage to the
control panel, the work surface or the base
Repairs to electrical appliances may only be carried
out by qualified personnel. Incorrect repairs can result
in considerable danger for the user. Please only
contact our factory customer service or a repair
workshop approved by us. Only original AEG spare
parts fulfil all requirements.
Do not allow children to play with the machine, and
keep domestic animals away from it.
When disposing of the machine in a proper manner,
destroy the door locks and cut off the power supply
cord.
If the machine is improperly used or incorrectly operated,
no responsibility can be accepted for possible damage.
Securely attach the discharge hose to avoid the risk of
scalding and overflow.
In case of breakdown, close the water tap and
disconnect the machine from the power supply. The
machine is disconnected when the plug is removed or
the circuit-breaker(s) is (are) opened.
Keep packing parts away from small children. The
plastic sheeting is particularly dangerous.
If you are washing pre-cleaned garments, flammable
cleaning spirits must be completely evaporated.
Do not use the machine for dry cleaning.
If the machine is not connected to the potable water
supply, but to a rainwater or similar supply, please
observe the corresponding instructions.
This machine complies with EC radio disturbance
requirements 87/308/EC, EN 55014, DIN VDE 0875
part 1 and EN 55 011 - DIN VDE 0875 part 11 as well
as the standard concerning effects on power supplies
EN 60 555 parts 1-3 - DIN VDE 0838 parts 1-3.

The ÖKO-system
Your new ÖKO LAVAMAT from the AEG ÖKO System
fulfils all current and future requirements of modern wash
care and enables an individual and multiple choice of
programmes.
The most economical use of water, power and detergent
contributes to environmental relief and ensures the best
economy.
The uniflow
system
Through the uniflow system, the detergent is continuously
circulated. The system enables a 100% use of the detergent
with every programme and all wash temperatures. This
increases the cleaning effect and helps to save detergent,
compared with other machines without such a system.
Ribs
The ribs in the wash drum continuously carry the water to the
top. This ensures an intense and balanced soaking of the
wash.
Automatic
water level
control
The automatic water level control matches water
consumption to the quantity of the wash and type of fabric.
Packing
All materials used are biodegradable. They can be
disposed of without danger or burnt in rubbish
incinerators.
Note on the materials : the plastics can be used again and
are marked as follows: >PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer
covering and the bags on the inside. >PS< for polystyrol
foam, e.g. the padding, totally free from FCKW. The carton
is made from used paper and should be deposited in the
used paper collection.

For the sake of the environment ...
These instructions will help you to act in an environmentally
conscious manner :
ÖKO tips for
economic
washing
For normally soiled washes, programmes without prewash are provided. Compared to a programme with
pre-wash, you save on water and detergent.
Only use detergent with bleach additive if the wash is
soiled with spots which can be bleached. Bleaches are
particularly effective at high temperatures.
Consumption of the machine is most favourable when
it is full.
For light to normally soiled washes, the saving
programme is often sufficient; it uses lower temperatures
which are maintained for longer periods.
Spots and stains can be removed by appropriate pretreatment. This saves a programme for heavily soiled
clothes.
Use the detergent exactly as advised by the manufacturer. Too much "wates" your money and is bad for
the environment. Follow the instructions for lightly
soiled garments.
Savings on detergent and for the environment may also
be achieved if with medium to hard water you add
sufficient detergent for soft water and then add
separately a softener. This relieves our waters of a
certain amount of chemicals.
Use fabric softener only when necessary, e.g. with
synthetic mixed fabrics, to avoid static charging. If you
use a dryer, your wash will be soft and fluffy even
without fabric softener.

Before the wash
Sort the washing
Check that the fabrics are machine washable. This
information is provided by the usual international
washing symbols :
High temperature wash
Coloured wash
Synthetics
Delicate fabrics
Wool
Sort the wash according to type, degree of soiling and
temperature.
Woollen items with only the Wool symbol
are not
suitable for machine washing. To wash woollen items,
the additional note “does not mat” or “machine
washable” is necessary.
The items with the following symbols are unsuitable for
machine washing :
Hand wash
Do not wash
Dry clean
Do not dry clean
Bleach possible
Do not bleach
12
Observe the recommendation “wash separately".
New, dark coloured items often have an excess of dye.
During the wash, this can be transferred to lighter
coloured fabrics. It is better to wash such items
separately the first time.
Treat stains as soon as possible, while they are still
fresh, with water, soap or appropriate pre-wash
treatment (stain spray, pre-wash paste etc)
Pre-wash
treatment
Empty Pockets
In particular, remove metallic objects (paper clips,
safety pins etc.)
Button pillow slips. Close zip fasteners, hooks and
eyelets. Tie loose belts and apron strings together.
Worked coloured fabrics, wool and fabrics with attached
decorations should be turned inside-out.
Small and delicate objects (e.g. baby socks,
stockings) can be easily washed inside a small pillowcase with a zip fastener or in larger socks.
Treat curtains with particular care
They can be damaged simply by open windows or on
being removed (so-called “runs”). Place small metal
rings or edged plastic rings in a net or bag.
We can in no case assume responsibility for damage.
Only spin-dry curtains if it is approved by the manufacturer.

Notice for Test Institutes :
For tests similar to IEC 456 (new) with standard load A the
maximum load is 4,05 kg.
Whenever possible, wash with a full load as this ensures
maximum efficiency.
Do not overfill. This has a negative result on the washing
results.
With synthetics articles particularly prone to creasing, you
should reduce the load.
Opening
the washing
machine
To open the drum, press the button on the drum lid, press
the drum lid down and open slowly. Load the washing and
then close the drum and washing machine lids.
Caution: before closing the appliance lid check that the
drum lid is properly closed.
Loading
As far as possible, mix large and small articles in the wash.
This improves washing efficiency and makes for more
efficient distribution of the wash during spin drying.
Do not load folded washing.
14
Detergent
You may use all modern detergents suited to domestic
washing machines.
The use of the detergent depends on the type of wash and
the degree of soiling.
Choice of
detergent
Soiling is differentiated according to :
Dirt, e.g. dust, soot, sweat, grease etc.
Bleachable stains, e.g. red wine, fruit, vegetables
etc.
Protein stains, e.g. blood, milk etc.
The different types of washing products are :
Washing powders containing bleach
Liquid detergents, not containing bleach
Colour and delicate detergents, not containing
bleach, often also not containing optical brighteners,
gentle on fabrics
Wool detergents, free of bleach and enzymes,
particularly gentle on wool fibres
Curtain detergents with light proof optical brighteners
to avoid yellowing through the effect of sun light.
“Kit” detergents
These allow separate dosing of basic detergent, water
softener and bleach and stain removers.
Water softeners for softening of the mains water
Bleach or stain removers, for localised use on
stained articles or as an additive when using bleachfree detergents.
Pre-treatment for localized use on stains
Fabric softeners prevent electrostatic charge build up
on synthetic fabrics and gives the wash a soft feel
Starch and fabric conditioners give body to the
fabrics and facilitate ironing
Dyes and dye removers may only be used if authorized
by the manufacturers of these products
15
Detergent
Quantities
The quantity of detergent used depends on the size of the
wash, the hardness of the water and the degree of soiling.
Follow the instructions on the detergent packet.
Your local water supply company can supply information
concerning the hardness of the water.

There are three compartments in the detergent and
additive dispenser.
Compartment 1
Compartment 2
Compartment 3
Adding Detergent
= softener for programmes
without pre-wash ; washing
powder and powder softener
for programmes with pre-wash
or soak.
= washing powder for the main
wash ; for programmes with
pre-wash, also the softener.
= Liquid additives (fabric softener
and conditioner, starch)
Please note the following :
For programmes with pre-wash and addition of
detergent and softener in the same compartment, first
add the detergent, then the softener.
If you prefer liquid detergent, please use the
measuring beakers supplied by detergent
manufacturers. Add the detergent in accordance with
the manufacturer’s instructions.
When using liquid softener, follow the manufacturer’s
instructions.
Fill the additive compartment only up to the “MAXI”
level, otherwise the additive will spill over prematurely
and without any effect into the machine.
When using thick softener concentrate and starch, it
is recommended to top up the compartment to the
“MAXI” level with water.
If you wish to use starch in powder form, dissolve it
according to the maker’s recommendations and pour
the solution into the compartment. Choose the “fabric
softener” programme.

Choosing the wash programme
The wash programme is chosen with the programme
selector, the temperature adjustment knob and the buttons.
For normally soiled articles, choose a programme without
pre-wash. For dirty articles choose a programme with prewash or use the “intensive” button (refer to the button
description). For protein based stains (blood, cocoa), we
recommend a programme with pre-wash. For heavily
stained articles (fruit, vegetables, tea) press the INTENSIVE
button.
Programme
selector
The programme selector contains settings for main and
additional programmes (refer to the list of programmes).
Temperature
selector
The temperature selector can be infinitely varied to all
necessary temperatures. The setting of the temperature
starts the programme.
18
During the programme, the dial of the programme selector
rotates in steps and indicates which part of the programme
is running.
The programme
indicator
By combining main and additional programmes with the
buttons, a programme for all needs can be obtained.

button
You may reduce spin speed with this button for all
programmes. If you do not press this button, spinning
takes place at maximum speed.
20
End of programme
At the end of the programme, the machine can be
opened. Buttons which may have been set should be
released by pushing again. Set the temperature selector
on "0" position.
Remove the washing.
Check that the drum is completely empty, as otherwise
articles could be damaged in the next wash cycle (e.g.
shrinking) or could colour other articles.

Maintenance and care
Clean the dispenser compartment from time to time to
remove remaining detergent.
Dispenser
compartment
The wash drum is made of rust free stainless steel.
Rusty objects not removed from the wash can cause rust
spots to appear on the drum. These spots can be
removed using stainless steel cleaner. The customer
service has suitable products available.
Wash drum
When correct quantities of detergent are used, descaling
of the machine is hardly necessary. If need be, use only
brand name descaling products with corrosion protection,
designed for washing machines. The customer service
has suitable products available.
Descaling
The control panel and controls should be cleaned in case
of need only with lukewarm water.
Control panel and
controls
25
Cleaning the lint
filter
Regular cleaning of the lint filter is important
If you wash articles containing a lot of lint, clean the filter
after every wash. Place the water discharge hose in a flat
container placed on the ground, to completely empty the
machine.
- Open the flap door of the filter compartment by pressing
it inwards with a finger at the hinged side.
- Turn the filter knob counterclockwise and pull the filter
out.
- Clean the filter thoroughly.
- Refit the filter and turn the knob clockwise.
26
What to do if ...
... The washing machine does not work at all ?
Is the machine connected to the power supply?
Was a programme selected?
Was a temperature selected?
Are all the lids closed?
... No water runs in ?
Is the water tap open?
Is the filter in the water inlet blocked ?
... The spin cycle begins after a delay ?
The electronic unbalance control system of the ma
chine has operated due to unfavourable distribution of
the wash. The wash is separated by reversing
movements of the drum, redistributed and the spin
cycle begins again. This can occur several times until
the unbalance is removed and spinning can finally
begin.
... The washing machine vibrates or does not stand
still ?
With very small loads (e.g. only a bathing costume) the
machine may vibrate. This has no effect on operation.
Are the adjustable feet properly adjusted? Follow the
instructions for installation
Is the discharge hose bent ?
Are the transport securings completely removed ?
Follow the instructions for installation
... The detergent in the main wash foams strongly ?
Was too much, or the wrong detergent used ? Check
the quantities added more precisely.
... Water runs out from under the machine ?
Is the inlet hose connector loose ?
Is the hose clamp on the discharge hose loose ?
Is the discharge hose damaged ?
Is the lint filter cover properly closed ?
... The wash results are not as usual ?
Was the wrong quantity or the wrong detergent
added ? Insufficient detergent leads to grey washes
and scale deposits in the machine. Check the
quantities more exactly.
Were special stains pre-treated ?
Were programme and temperature correctly chosen?
... Despite pre-treatment, stains are not removed ?
They may be stains which cannot be removed by
washing. Ask a specialist.
Problems you
can solve
yourself
27
... Grey traces are found on the finished wash ?
Too little detergent was used for articles stained by
ointment, grease or oil. The quantity of detergent is
insufficient to dissolve grease ?
Was the temperature chosen too low ?
... Traces of fabric softener are found on the finished
wash ?
In such cases, usually fabric softener, in particular in
concentrated form, has gone directly into the wash
outside of the machine. Such spots should be
washed out as quickly as possible.
... At the end of the programme, there are white
detergent deposits on the wash ?
It is usually a case of insoluble elements of modern
detergents. They are not the result of insufficient
rinsing. Possible solution: brush out or shake out, or
turn articles inside out for washing.
... After the final rinse cycle, suds are still visible ?
Modern detergents can cause suds even in the last
rinse cycle, but this has no influence on the rinse
results.
... The wash is not spun sufficiently and there is
water remaining in the drum ?
Is the discharge hose bent ?
Has the maximum height of the discharge hose of 1m
been exceeded ?
28
