INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
1
Safety
The safety of AEG electrical appliances conforms to the recognised
technical regulations and the legislation covering the safety of appliances. However, as manufacturers, we still regard it as our responsibility
to inform you of the following safety information.
Before Putting into Operation for the First Time
• Refer to the ”Installation and Connection Instructions” later in this
user information.
• When the unit is delivered in winter months with minus temperatures: Store the washing machine for 24 hours at room temperature
before putting it into operation.
Correct Use
• The washing machine is only designed for normal domestic washing.
If the unit is used for purposes other than that for which it is
designed, the manufacturer can accept no liability for any resulting
damages.
• For safety reasons, conversions or modifications to the washing
machine are not permissible.
• Use only detergents which are suitable for washing machines. Follow
the washing detergent manufacturer's instructions.
• The washing must not contain any flammable solvents. Also remember this when washing pre-cleaned washing.
• Do not use the washing machine for chemical cleaning.
• Dyes/dye removers may only be used in washing machines if the
manufacturer expressly allows these products. We cannot be held liable for any resulting damage.
• Use only water from the water mains. Use rainwater or service water
only if it meets the requirements outlined in DIN1986 and DIN1988.
• Frost damage is not covered by the warranty! If the washing machine
is in a room which is at risk from frost, an emergency emptying operation must be carried out when there is a frost risk (see the section
”Carry Out Emergency Emptying”).
6
Instructions for use
Child Safety
• Packaging components (e.g. films, polystyrene) can be hazardous to
children. Risk of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.
• Children often cannot recognise the hazards associated with handling
electrical appliances. Therefore, ensure the necessary supervision during operation and do not allow children to play with the washing
machine – there is a risk that children can get trapped inside.
• Ensure that children or small animals cannot climb into the washing
machine's drum.
• When disposing of the washing machine: Pull out the mains plug,
destroy the door lock, cut off the electrical supply lead and throw
away the plug and the left-over cable. This means that children at
play cannot shut themselves inside and in so doing be in danger.
General Safety
• Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by skilled
persons. Incorrect repairs can cause significant hazards. If repairs are
necessary, consult our Customer Service or your specialist dealer.
• Never put the washing machine into operation if the mains cable is
damaged or if the control panel, work top or base area are damaged
in such a way that the inside of the unit is open and accessible.
• Switch off the washing machine before carrying out cleaning, care
and maintenance work. Also pull the mains plug out of the socket or,
– if it is permanently connected, – switch off the LS switch in the
fuse box or completely unscrew the screw-in fuse.
• Never pull the cable to remove the plug from the socket. Always pull
the plug itself.
• Multiple connectors, couplings and extension cables must not be
used. There is a fire risk with overheating!
• Do not spray down the washing machine with a water jet. Electric
shock risk!
• The glass in the filling door becomes hot in the case of washing programs with high temperatures. Do not touch!
• Allow the washing solution to cool down before emergency emptying
of the unit, before cleaning or before emergency opening of the filling door.
• Small animals can chew the power cables and water hoses. Risk of
electric shock and danger of water damage! Keep small animals away
from the washing machine.

Disposal
Dispose the packing material!
Dispose of your washing machine's packaging correctly. All packaging
materials are environmentally compatible and can be disposed of without risk or incinerated at a refuse combustion plant.
The plastics can also be reused:
• The outer sleeve and the bags are made of polyethylene (code >PE<).
• The cushioned parts are made of foamed, CFC-free polystyrene
(code >PS<).
The card parts were made from recylced paper and should also be
returned in the waste paper collection.
Dispose the old appliance!
When you finally put your appliance out of operation,
please bring it to your nearest recycling centre or to your dealer.
2
Environment Tips
• The pre-wash cycle is not required for averagely dirty washing. This
saves washing powder/liquid, water and time (and does not harm the
environment).
• The washing machine is especially economical when you fully utilise
the stated filling quantities.
• For small amounts of washing, use only half to two thirds the recommended amount of washing powder/liquid.
• Suitable pretreatment enables stains and small amounts of dirt to be
removed. You can then wash at a lower temperature.
• Use the energy-saving program to wash garments which are lightly to
moderately dirty.
• There is often no need for conditioner. Try it once! If you use a dryer,
your washing will become soft and velvety even without conditioner.
• In the case of medium to high water hardness, (hardness range II or
higher, see ”Washing and Care Agents”), you should use water softener.
The washing powder/liquid can then always be metered for hardness
range I (= soft).

Instructions for use
What Does ”Update” Mean?
The washing programs of your washing machine are controlled by software.
New types of textiles or new washing powders/liquids could, in the
future, require new washing programs. The software can be adapted to
these in most cases.
When new washing programs are available, you can also use them in
your washing machine by having the software updated.
For further information on the ”Update”, consult the Customer Service.
You can also ask the Customer Service about the costs of an ”Update”.
Before the First Wash
0 1. Pull out the washing powder drawer slightly.
2. Pour about 1 litre of water through the washing powder drawer into
the washing machine. With the next program start, this will close the
solution container and the eco-sluice can function correctly.
3. Run the washing cycle without washing (COTTONS/WITTE WAS, BLANC
95 °C, with half the amount of washing detergent). This removes residues left over from production on the drum and solution container.
14
Instructions for use
Prepare the Washing Cycle
Sort and Prepare the Washing
• Sort the washing according to care codes and type (see ”Washing
Types and Care Codes”).
• Empty pockets.
• Remove metal parts (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• To prevent washing damage and washing snags: Close zip fasteners,
button closed bed covers and pillow cases, and tie together ribbons,
e.g. on aprons.
• Use clothing made of double-layer fabric (sleeping bag, anorak etc.).
• On knitted, coloured textiles and on wool and textiles with fitted
decorations: Turn inside out.
• Wash small and sensitive items (baby socks, stockings, tights, bras
etc.) in a washing net, a cushion with a zip fastener or in larger socks.
• Treat curtains with particular care. Remove small metal rollers or
small, burred rollers or tie them in a net or in a bag. We cannot
accept any liability for damage.
• Do not wash coloureds and whites together in one washing cycle.
Otherwise, whites will discolour or turn grey.
• New coloureds often contain surplus dye. It is best to wash such
items separately the first time.
• Mix small and large items of washing! This speeds up theeffect of
washing and the washing is more favourably distributed during spinning.
• Loosen up the washing before loading it into the washing machine.
• Put the washing into the drum folded out.
• Pay attention to the care instructions ”Wash separately” and ”Wash
separately several times”!
15
Instructions for use
Washing Types and Care Codes
The care codes help you choose the correct washing program. The
washing should be sorted according to type and care code. The temperatures stated in the care codes are all maximum values.
Cottons ç
Textiles made of cotton and linen with this care code are insensitive to
mechanical stress and high temperatures. The program COTTONS/LINEN
(WITTE/BONTE WAS, BLANC/COULEURS) is suitable for this type of
washing.
Linen è ë
Textiles made of cotton and linen with this care code are insensitive to
mechanical stresses. The program COTTONS/LINEN (WITTE/BONTE WAS,
BLANC/COULEURS) is suitable for this type of washing.
Easy-Care Garments ê í
Textiles such as finished cottons, cotton mixtures, viscose and synthetics with this care code require mechanically more mild treatment. The
program EASY-CARES/EASY IRON (KREUKHERSTELLEND, DEFROISSABLE/STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE) is suitable for this type of washing.
Delicates ì
Textiles such as layered fibres, microfibres, viscose, synthetics and curtains with this care code require very gentle treatment. The program
DELICATES (FIJNE WAS, LINGE DELICAT) is suitable for this type of
washing.
Wool and Very Sensitive Washing 9 ì ï
Textiles such as wool, wool mixtures and silk with this care code are
especially sensitive to mechanical stresses. The program WOOLLENS
(WOL, LAINE)/P (handwash) is suitable for this type of textiles.
Attention! Textiles with the care codeñ (Do not wash!) must not be
washed in the washing machine!
16
Instructions for use
Washing Detergents and Care Agents
Which washing detergent and care agent?
Use only washing detergents and care agents which are suitable for use
in washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
How much washing detergent and care agent?
The amount to be used depends on:
• the dirtiness of the washing
• the hardness category of the mains water supply
• the filling quantity
2
If the detergent manufacturer gives no details of the dosing quantities
for minimum loads, add one third less for half loads and, in the case of
very small loads and for EASY IRON (STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE),
only half the amount of detergent recommended for a full load.
Refer to the detergent/care agent manufacturer's instructions on use
and dosage.
Water Softener
For medium to high water hardness (hardness category II or higher) you
should use water softener. Pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions. Always then meter detergent for hardness category I (= soft). The
responsible water works can provide information on the local water
hardness.
2
Since the water softener is added before the main washing detergent,
(water pre-softening), eighty percent of the softener quantity stated on
the package is sufficient.

Instructions for use
If the washing result is not satisfactory
If the washing is grey and limescale forms in the drum
• Not enough washing detergent added.
• The right washing detergent was not used.
• Special types of stain were not pretreated.
• Program or temperature incorrectly set.
• If binary wahing detergents were used, the individual components
were not added in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey stains on the washing
• Washing contaminated with creams, grease or oils was washing with
too little detergent.
• Washing at too low temperature.
• A frequent cause is that conditioner – particularly concentrated
form, ended up on the washing. Wash out such stains as quickly as
possible and carefully use the right conditioner.
If foam is still visible after the final rinse
• Modern washing detergents can still produce foam, even in the final
rinse. The washing is still sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white residues on the washing
• These are the insoluble components of modern detergents.
They are not the result of an insufficient rinsing effect.
Shake or brush off the washing. Perhaps in future you should turn
the washing before washing it. Check the choice of detergent and use
a liquid detergent if necessary.

Setting up and connection instructions
Prepare the Installation Location
• The installation surface must be clean, dry and free of floor wax residue and other lubricating coatings so that the unit does not slide
away. Do not use any lubricants as sliding aids.
• It is not recommended to set up the washing machine on deep-pile
carpets or on floor coverings with soft foam underlays, as this would
mean that the stability of the unit would not be guaranteed.
• Use ordinary rubber mats as underlays in locations with small-format
tiles.
• Never use wood, card or similar underlays to compensate for minor
floor unevenness. Always use the adjustable screw-type feet of the
machine.
• If, for reasons of space, it is not possible to avoid setting up the unit
next to a gas cooker or coal stove: Insert a thermally-insulating panel
between the washing machine and the cooker (85 x 57cm). This panel
must have an aluminium foil on the side against the cooker.
• The washing machine must not be set up in a room where there
is a danger of frost. Frost damage!
• The intake and drainage hoses must not be bent or pinched.
Setting Up on a Concrete Pedestal
When setting up the washing machine on
a concrete pedestal, it is essential for
safety reasons to fit stand plates in which
the washing machine is then adjusted.
The stand plates are available from the
Customer Service under spare part
number 645 425 058.
Setting Up on a Vibrating floor
In the case of vibrating floors, especially wooden beam floors with flexible boards, securely screw a water-resistant wooden panel at least
15mm thick onto at least 2 of the floor beams. If possible, set up the
unit in a corner of the room where the wooden floor is best firmly
installed and is therefore least likely to be susceptible to vibrations.
43
Setting up and connection instructions
Compensate for Floor Unevenness
Floor unevenness can be compensated for and the height can be corrected with the four adjustable screw feet. The height can be adjusted
in a range of +10 ... -5 mm.
To adjust the feet use the special spanner supplied for removing the
transport braces.
0 1. Slide the special key firmly onto
the hexagon head of the
threaded foot as far as it will go.
2. Adjust the screw feet so that the
unit is horizontal and stable. The
unit must not wobble over when
loaded.
3. If necessary, check the setting
with a spirit level.
Attention! Never compensate for
minor floor unevenness with
underlays made of wood, card
etc. Always adjust the adjustable
feet.

Water Connection
3
The washing machine has safety features which prevent contamination
of the drinking water and which conform to the legal regulations of
the water authorities (e.g. for Germany: DVGW regulations). Other protection measures in the installation are therefore not necessary.
Attention!
– Units for connection to cold water must not be connected to hot
water!
– Use only new sets of hoses for connection!
Permissible Water Pressure
The water pressure must be at least 1bar (= 10N/cm2 = 0.1MPa), maximum 10bar (= 100N/cm2 = 1MPa).
• In the case of more than 10bar: Connect a pressure-reducing valve
upstream.
• In the case of less than 1bar: Unscrew the intake hose on the unit
side on the inlet solenoid valve and remove the flow regulator (to do
this, remove the filter with pointed pliers and remove the rubber
washer behind). Replace the filter.

Setting up and connection instructions
Water Inflow
A pressure hose 1.35m in length is supplied.
If a longer inflow hose is required, only a VDE-approved, complete set
of hoses with fitted hose screw connections offered by our Customer
Service is permissible.
– Sets of hoses in lengths of 2.2m, 3.5m and 5m are available for
washing machines without Aqua-Control.
– Sets of hoses in lengths of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.9m are available for
washing machines with Aqua-Control.
Attention! Never cut into pieces in order to extend the hoses!
Sealing rings are supplied either in the plastic
nuts of the hose screw connection or in the
enclosed pack. Do not use other seals!
0 1. Connect the hose with the angled connection to
the machine.
3
Attention!
– Do not lay the supply hose
vertically downwards. Rather,
turn it to the right or left as
shown in the diagram.
– Only tighten the screw
connection manually.
2. Connect the hose with the
straight connection to a water tap with a screw
thread of R 3/4 (inches).
Attention! Only tighten the screw connection
manually.
3. By slowly opening the water tap before putting
the washing machine into operation, check
whether the connection is free of leaks.

Setting up and connection instructions
Water Drainage
The drainage hose can either be connected to a siphon or hung in a
wash basin or bath tub.
Only original hoses may be used for extension purposes (max. 3m on
the floor and then up to 80cm high). The Customer Service stocks hoses
in lengths of 2.7 and 4m.
Attention! It is absolutely essential to install the drainage hose free of
pinches.
0
Water Drainage into a Siphon
The grommet on the end of the hose fits
all commonly used siphon types.
Secure the grommet/siphon connecting
point with a hose clamp.
Draining the water into a basin
Attention!
– Small basins are not suitable for
draining the water into them.
Water could overflow!
– It is not permitted to submerge the
end of the drainage hose into the
pumped-off water. Water could be
sucked up into the hose!
0
– When hooked into a wash-basin or a
bath tub the drainage hose must be
protected from slipping out of place
by the supplied slip-on elbow. Otherwise the repelling power of the draining water can press the hose out of the
sink.
Fix the elbow to the water tap or to the
wall with string.
47
Setting up and connection instructions
Delivery Heads over 1m
To pump off the washing / rinsing agent, every washing machine has a
pump which transports liquids via the drainage hose up to a height of
1m, calculated from the machine's floor.
For delivery heads over 1m, consult the Customer Service.

SERVICE
In the section ”What to do if ...” there is a list of some faults which you
can remedy yourself. Look there first if a fault occurs. If you find no
information there, please consult your Customer Service Centre.
Always prepare in advance for the discussion. By doing so you will simplify the diagnosis and the decision on whether customer service is
necessary.
Note the PNC-number and the
S-number. Both can be found on the
rating plate on the inside of the door
on your washing machine.
PNC .....................................................
S-No. .....................................................
Answer as precisely as possible:
• What form does the fault take?
• Under what circumstances does the fault occur?
When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?
– if you could have dealt with the fault yourself with the aid of the
Faults Table (see the section ”What to do if ...”),
– if several trips by the customer service technician are necessary
because he had not received all the necessary information before his
visit and must now e.g. fetch spare parts. These multiple trips can be
avoided if you prepare your phone call as described above.
