Safety instructions
The safety of AEG 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 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!
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).

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.

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
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 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 filter 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 DESCARGA 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.

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

heating phase.
The unbalance detection
device that prevents
excessive vibration during
spinning has cut in.
Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin
If the laundry is not evenly
distributed inside the drum
at the beginning of the
spin cycle, the machine
detects this and tries to
redistribute it more evenly
by means of a few drum
rotations.
Only when the laundry is
more evenly distributed
will the spin cycle be
performed, at a lower speed,
if the laundry is not evenly
distributed.
If, after about 10 minutes,
the laundry is still tangled,
the machine will not spin.
Therefore, if the laundry is
still wet at the end of the
cycle, it is advisable to
redistribute it manually
inside the drum and to
select the spin programme.

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.

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 to a
separate tap with
a 3/4" thread.
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.

Installation
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. Run it along the floor; only the part
near the drainage point must be raised.
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.
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.
