1 Safety
instructions
The safety standards of AEG electric appliances are in keeping with the
recognised rules of technology and the law governing the safety of
appliances. Nevertheless as a manufacturer we are committed to familiarise you with the following safety instructions:
General safety
• Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by qualified
personnel. As a result of incorrect repairs considerable dangers for the
user may result. Please contact our customer service department or
an authorised AEG dealer in the event of repairs being necessary.
• Never start the washing machine if the mains flex is damaged or the
control panel, work top or base area are so damaged that the inside
of the washing machine is accessible.
• Switch off the washing machine before carrying out any cleaning,
care and maintenance work! You can make totally sure by pulling the
mains plug out of the socket or - if permanently connected – by
switching off the fuse switch in the fuse box or by unscrewing the
plug fuse right out.
• Multiway plugs, joints and extension cables must not be used. There is
risk of overheating!
• Never use the flex to pull the plug out of the socket but pull the
actual plug.
• Do not spray the washing machine with a water jet – danger of an
electric shock!
• During washing programs at a high temperature, the glass of the
door heats up. Do not touch!
• Allow the suds to cool down before cleaning the pump or carrying
out emergency emptying.
• Small animals can nibble at power cables and water hoses. Electric
shock hazard and danger of damages from water!
Installation, connection and initial operation
• Please follow the separate Installation and connection instructions.
• Run the first washing cycle without washing (
/Cottons 95,
with half the amount of washing powder) to remove residues on the
drum and suds container caused during production.
• If the machine is delivered during the winter at freezing temperatures: store the washing machine for 24 hours at room temperature
before starting it.
5
Safety instructions
Safety of children
• Often children are not aware of the dangers involved in handling
electrical equipment. Therefore please ensure they are adequately
supervised whilst the appliance is on and do not allow children to
play with the washing machine – there is a risk that the children may
lock themselves in the appliance.
• Packaging (e.g. plastic films, polystyrene) could be dangerous for children – danger of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.
• Please make sure that children or small animals do not climb into the
drum of the washing machine.
• When disposing of the washing machine pull out the plug, cut off the
flex, dispose of the plug and remaining flex and destroy the door
lock. This hinders children from locking themselves in and endangering their lives.
Intended use
• Only use the washing machine to wash normal domestic washing. If
the washing machine is used for any other purpose or is incorrectly
used, the manufacturer adopts no liability for any damages which
may result.
• Conversions or changes to washing machines are not permitted due
to safety reasons.
• Only use washing powder which is suitable for washing machines.
Please follow the instructions of the washing powder manufacturers.
• The washing may not contain any flammable solvents.
Please observe this above all when washing prewashed laundry.
• Do not use your washing 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 liable for
any damages.
• Please only use water from the mains. Only use rain or industrial
water if it meets the requirements of DIN1986 and DIN1988.
6
2
Disposal
Dispose of the packaging!
Dispose of the packaging material of your washing machine correctly.
All packaging materials are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of without any danger or burnt in the refuse incinerator.
The plastic parts can be reused:
• The external plastic cover and the bags inside are made of polyethylene (marking >PE<).
• The padding is made of CFC free expanded polystyrene
(marking >PS<).
The boxes are made from recycled paper and should be returned to the
old paper collection.
Dispose of your old washing machine!
When you eventually stop using your washing machine please bring it
to the nearest recycling centre or to your dealer who will take it back
for a small fee.
2
Environmental tips
• For normally soiled washing you do not need a prewash. In this way
you can save washing powder, water and time (and not pollute the
environment!).
• The washing machine works particularly economically if you exploit
the maximum loads.
• For small quantities of washing use half to two thirds of the recommended washing powder quantity.
• By suitable pretreatment stains and a certain amount of dirt can be
removed. Then you can wash at a low temperature.
• Wash slightly soiled to normally soiled cottons with the energy saving
program.
• Often you do not need a fabric softener. Just try it! If you use a washing machine your washing will become soft and fluffy without softener.
• For medium to high water hardness (from hardness range II, see
"Washing powder and conditioners") you should use a water softener.
The washing powder can then always be measured as for hardness
area I (= soft).
7
The most important features of your
appliance
• Setting the program using the program selector, temperature selector
and type of washing buttons.
• Stain program for effectively treating stained washing.
• Energy saving program for slightly soiled to normally soiled linen.
• Maximum spin speed 1200 revolutions per minute, speed for the
final spin is automatically adapted depending on the washing program:
(Cottons/Linen)
1200 revolutions per minute
(Easy Cares)
1000 revolutions per minute
(Delicates)
1000 revolutions per minute
(Woollens)
1000 revolutions per minute
• Speed for the final spin can be changed to 1000, 700, or 400 revolutions per minute.
•
(Rinse hold) can be added: the washing remains in the final
rinse water, it is not spun.
• Delay timer: program start can be delayed by 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours
(e.g. to times with a more economical power rate).
• Automatic load adaptation with fuzzy logic: sensor controlled washing process, water quantity dependent on foam and load. This ensures
the best washing and rinsing results with the lowest automatically
adapted water consumption.
• 4-chamber compartment for washing powder and fabric softener:
temporally delayed addition of softener, washing powder and stain
removing agent enables environmentally friendly washing and
improves the effectiveness of the detergents.
• ÖKO gate: ensures that the washing powder is fully exploited by automatically closing the suds container during the wash cycle.
• Scoop ribs in the washing machine drum: ensure washing is wet fast
and equally.
• Anti-unbalance control system: for stability and smooth running.
• Extra water switch: suds cooling only or suds cooling with extra rinse
can be set.
• All-round water protection.

1) Note: program setting for testing in accordance with EN 60 456
Before using your machine for the first time
0 Slightly pull the detergent compartment out of the control panel.
0 Pour about 1 litre of water through the detergent compartment into the
washing machine.
Only once this has been done does the suds container close and the
ÖKO gate can function correctly.
0 Run through a wash cycle without washing (
/COTTONS 95,
with half the amount of washing powder).
This removes residues on the drum and suds container caused during
production.
14
Preparing the washing cycle
Sorting out and preparing washing
• Sort out washing according to the type and care symbol (see "Types
of washing and care symbols").
• Empty the pockets.
• Remove any metal parts (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• To prevent washing from getting damaged and forming bundles:
close zips, button up duvet covers and pillow cases, tie up loose straps
such as from aprons.
• Turn clothes made from double layer fabric inside out (e.g. anoraks,
sleeping bags).
• For knitted coloured fabrics as well as woollens and fabrics with
appliqué: turn inside out.
• Put small and delicate pieces (baby socks, tights) in a washing net, a
pillow case with zip or in larger socks.
• Handle curtains with special care. Remove metal strips or plastic fins
or tie them in a net or a bag.
We accept no liability for damages.
• Keep coloureds and whites separately in different washing cycles,
otherwise whites will turn grey.
• New coloured fabric often contains excess dyes. Wash this laundry
separately for the first time.
• Mix small and large pieces of washing! This improves the effectiveness of the wash and the washing is distributed better when spinning.
• Shake out washing before putting it into the machine.
• Unfold the washing before putting it into the drum.
• Observe tips for proper care such as "wash separately" and "wash separately several times"!.
15
Preparing the washing cycle
Washing Types and Care Symbols
Care symbols assist in the selection of the correct washing program.
Washing should be sorted according to type and care symbol. The temperatures indicated in the care symbols are maximum temperatures.
Cottons ç
Cotton and linen fabrics with this care symbol are resistant to the
mechanical action of the washing machine and high temperatures.
The
(COTTONS/LINEN) program is suitable for this type of
washing.
Linen è ë
Cotton and linen fabrics with this care symbol are resistant to the
mechanical action of the washing machine.
The
(COTTONS/LINEN) program is suitable for this type of
washing.
Easy-care washing ê í î
Fabrics such as treated cottons, cotton mixtures and synthetics with
this care symbol need careful handling. The
(EASY-CARES)
program is suitable for this type of washing.
Delicates ì
Fabrics such as those with layered fibres, micro-fibres, as well as synthetics and net curtains with this care symbol need particularly careful handling. The
(DELICATES) program is suitable for this type of
washing.
Woollens and particularly delicate washing 9 ì
Fabrics such as woollens, wool mixtures and silk with this care symbol
are particularly delicate in respect of the mechanical action of the
washing machine. The
(WOOLLENS) program is suitable for this
type of fabrics.
Important! Fabrics with the ï (hand washing) or ñ (do not wash!)
care symbols must not be washed in the washing machine!
Washing powders and conditioners
Which washing powder and conditioner?
Only use washing powders and fabric softeners suitable for washing
machine use. As a general rule follow the instructions of the producers.
16
Preparing the washing cycle
How much washing powder and fabric softener?
The amount to be used depends on
• the load:
If the washing powder producer does not make any specifications for
small loads, use a third less for half loads, and for very small loads only
use half of the amount of washing powder recommended for a full
load.
• the degree of soiling of the washing:
For only slightly soiled washing use less washing powder. Follow the
instructions of the washing powder producer and load.
• on the degree of hardness of the tap water:
The harder the water, the higher the dosage! You will find the quantities to use according to water hardness on the washing powder packaging.
Liquid detergent
Add liquid detergent using the dosing device provided by the detergent
industry. Please follow the instructions on the package.
Using a water softener
For a medium to high degree of water hardness (from water hardness
area II) water softener should be used. Follow the manufacturers
instructions! Then always dose detergent for hardness area I (= soft).
You can find information about the local degree of water hardness
from your water utility.
2
As the water softener has to be added before the main detergent (presoftening of the water), 80% of the water softener otherwise needed is
sufficient.

Troubleshooting
If the washing results are not satisfactory
If the washing turns greyish and limescale deposits are present in
the drum
• Insufficient washing powder has been added.
• Incorrect washing powder was used.
• Special stains were not pretreated.
• Program or temperature was not set correctly.
• When using modular washing powders the individual components
were not used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey stains on the washing
• Washing soiled with ointments, grease or oils was washed with insufficient washing powder.
• The temperature selected for the wash was too low.
• A frequent cause is that fabric softener especially a concentrated one
has come into contact with the washing. Wash out these types of
stains as fast as possible and use the fabric softener carefully.
If after the final rinse foam is still visible
• Modern washing powders can still cause foam in the final rinse cycle.
The washing is nevertheless sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white residues on the washing
• These are insoluble contents of modern washing powders. They are
not the result of an insufficient rinse. Shake out the washing or brush
it off. Perhaps you should turn the washing inside out in future
before washing it. Review your choice of powder, possibly use liquid
detergents in future.

Troubleshooting
Executing an emergency emptying
1 Warning! Switch off the washing machine and pull the mains plug
before an emergency emptying!
If the washing machine no longer pumps out the washing suds an
emergency emptying must be carried out.
Caution! The washing suds, which flow out of the emergency emptying
hose can be hot. Risk of scalding! First allow the suds to cool down
before an emergency emptying!
0 Put down a flat container to catch the suds draining out.
0 Pull down the flap in the left corner of
the base strip and remove it.
0 Release the emergency emptying hose
from its holder.
0 Pull the emergency emptying hose out a
little.
0 Place the container underneath to
catch the water.
0 Release the plugs of the emergency emptying hose by turning them anti-clockwise and pull them out.
The suds drain out. Depending on the
amount of suds, it may be necessary to
empty the container to catch the water
several times. To do this, temporarily
close the emergency emptying hose again
with the plugs.
34
When the suds have drained out completely:
0 Push the plug firmly back into the emergency emptying hose.
0 Push the emergency emptying hose back in a little and let it catch onto
the holder.
0 Replace the flap in the base plate and close it.
3
When the washing machine is completely empty, the ÖKO gate can no
longer function correctly. Therefore before the next wash fill in approx
1l water (pour it in through the washing powder compartment).
Cleaning the suds pump
1 Warning! Switch off the washing machine and pull the mains plug
before cleaning the suds pump!
0 First execute an emergency emptying (see previous section "Executing
an emergency emptying").
0 Place a floor cloth on the floor in front of the lid of the suds pump. Left
over water could flow out.
0 Unscrew the lid of the suds pump by
twisting it anti-clockwise and pull it off.
0 Remove any foreign bodies which may be
in the pump housing.
0 Check whether the impeller of the pump
can be turned. (It is normal for the pump
to jerk when running.) If the impeller
cannot be turned at all please contact
your customer service department.
0 Replace the lid (insert the ridges on the
lid into the guiding slots) and screw on
tightly in a clockwise direction.
0 Close the emergency emptying hose, push
it in and fasten it.
0 Close the flap.
35
Additional Rinse/Water Cooling
The washing machine is set up for extremely low water consumption.
• However, for people who suffer from an allergy to detergents, it can
be useful to rinse with more water (additional rinse).
• It may be necessary to cool the water before it is pumped out in order
to prevent damage to plastic waste pipes (water cooling).
You can activate these functions using the More Water Switch.
3
The program duration and water consumption are increased by water
cooling and/or the additional rinse.
Position "1": Water Cooling
The water is cooled prior to pumping out at the end of the main wash
(by adding cold water). This setting is only effective for
(COTTONS/LINEN) at a temperature of over 40 °C.
Position "2": Water Cooling and Additional Rinse
The water is cooled as in position 1, and an additional rinse is also performed during the
(COTTONS/LINEN),
(EASYCARES) and
(DELICATES) programs.
3
As supplied the More Water Switch is set to position 0.
Making the Adjustment:
0 1. Pull out the detergent drawer until the More
Water Switch is accessible in the frame on the left.
2. Set the More Water Switch to
"1" (water cooling) or
"2" (water cooling and additional rinse).

Service
In the chapter "Troubleshooting" some disturbances have been summarised, which you can solve yourself. If you do not find any helpful information there, please contact your local Customer Service Centre.
Addresses and phone numbers can be found in the separate “Guarantee
Conditions/Service Departments“ (supplied with the appliance).
Be well prepared before you phone. This facilitates the diagnosis and
the decision as to whether a customer service visit is necessary. With
our checklist you can gather important information before making
your call:
Make a note of the PNC number and the Serial number (S-No.). They
are both on the type plate behind the door of your washing machine.
PNC ........................................
S-No. ......................................
If possible establish:
• How is the disturbance evident?
• Under what circumstances does the disturbance
occur?
When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?
– if you could have solved the disturbance yourself with the help of the
Troubleshooting table (see section "Troubleshooting "),
– if the customer service engineer has to make several journeys because
he did not receive all the necessary important information before his
visit and now e.g. has to fetch spares. You can avoid these extra trips
by preparing your telephone call properly in the way described above.
