WARNING: A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a serious
safety (shock) hazard. Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of
safely.
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.

Site Preparation
Site Preparation
• The installation surface must be clean and dry.
• Do not install on a deep pile carpet.
• If the appliance is installed next to a heat source (e. g. cooking appliance), a heat insulation pad (85 x 57 cm) must be placed between the
washing machine and the heat source.
• Do not install the appliance where the temperature may fall below
freezing or rise above 35°C.
• Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is easily
accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.
Levelling the Appliance
The appliance must be levelled using the adjustable feet. Use a
screwdriver to adjust to the feet until the appliance is level.
11
Venting
Venting
The appliance expels hot, moist air which must be able to flow freely
from the tumble dryer vent.
Tumble Dryer Vents
View from left
Rear view
View from right
The most efficient way of venting the expelled air is via a vent hose
through to the outside.
12
Venting
Venting through a Vent Hose
The vent hose expelling the hot air should be 100 mm diameter and no
longer than 4 meters. Avoid bends in the vent hose as this will reduce
the air flow. The maximum length of the vent hose may be:
4 meters with 0 bends, or
2 meters with 2 bends.
If the vent hose is to be permanently installed to the outside, a wall box
or suitable cover should be used on the outside wall.
Example:
A vent hose (Part number: 647 000 010) and wall box (Part number:
647 000 020) are available from your local AEG Service Force Centre.
Ensure the vent hose is not squashed. The drying efficiency of the
tumble dryer will be affected and may cause the safety cut outs to
operate.
1
Warning! The vent hose must not be connected to a flue pipe or
chimney designed to carry the exhaust from a fuel burning heating
appliance.
13
Venting
Venting without a Vent Hose
If a vent hose is not connected to the tumble dryer, the air can be
expelled into the installation room providing the following precautions
are observed.
• The vent(s) in use must be at least 30 cm from the wall or any other
object.
• Any vent less than 30 cm from a wall or other object must be closed
using the cover provided.
• The installation room must be well ventilated during the drying cycle.
14
General Information
3General Information
• To prevent creasing do not exceed the maximum load stated in the
program table.
• When using fabric conditioning sheets, we recommend the conditioning sheet is pinned (using a safety pin) to an article of laundry
and placed in the tumble dryer.
• When using fabric conditioning sheets or drying starched washing in
the tumble dryer, it is important to clean the drum to prevent a build
up of any residues/deposits. See maintenance and cleaning section.
• Please ensure the appliance is easily accessible to an engineer after
installation.
2Disposal
Packaging
• Dispose of the packaging material correctly. All packaging materials
are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of without any
danger to the environment.
• The external plastic covering and bags inside are made of Polyethylen
(marking >PE<).
• The padding is made of CFC free expanded polystyrene
(marking >PS<).
Tumble Dryer
When disposing of the tumble dryer.
• Cut off the mains cable and destroy the plug.
• Disable the door catch to prevent young children becoming trapped
inside.
• Use an authorised disposal site.

Environmental protection tips
2 Environmental protection tips
• Your laundry will become light and soft in the tumble dryer even without a fabric softening agent.
• Loosen your laundry before loading it into the dryer. This helps to prevent lengthy running times and creasing. Ensure your laundry is well
spun.
