OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1
Safety
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:
Prior to initial start-up
• Observe the "Installation and Connection Instructions" below in
these user instructions.
• If the appliance is delivered during the winter and temperatures are
below freezing, allow the appliance to stand at room temperature for
24 hours before operation
Intended use
• The washing machine is intended exclusively for the washing of normal household washing in the home. If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended, or if it is improperly operated, the
manufacturer can assume no liability for damages which may occur.
• Additions or modifications to the washing machine are strictly forbidden due to safety reasons.
• Use only those detergents which are suitable for the washing
machine. Observe instructions provided by the detergent manufacturer.
• Laundry to be washed may not contain any flammable solvents. This
must also be taken into consideration when washing pre-washed
laundry.
• Do not use the washing machine for dry-cleaning.
• Dyes and bleaches may only be used in the washing machine if such
use has been expressly endorsed by the manufacturer of these products. We can assume no liability for damages which may occur.
• Use tap water only. Rain water and industrial water may only be used
if they fulfil requirements in accordance with DIN1986 and DIN1988.
• Damage due to frost is not covered by the guarantee! If the washing
machine is located in a room in which below freezing temperatures
might occur, emergency draining must be carried out if danger of
freezing occurs (see "Emergency Draining"). Furthermore, the inlet
hose must be disconnected from the tap and laid on the floor.
6
Operating instructions
Safety of children
• Packaging materials (e.g. sheet and Styrofoam) can be dangerous for
children. Danger of asphyxiation! Keep packaging materials at a safe
distance from children.
• Children are often unable to recognise the dangers involved with
electrical appliances. Provide for proper supervision during operation,
and do not allow children to play with the washing machine – the
danger exists that a child might lock itself into the appliance.
• Make certain that children or small animals do not climb into the
drum of the washing machine.
• If the washing machine needs to be disposed of, remove the mains
plug, destroy the door lock, cut off the electrical cable and dispose of
the plug and remaining cable separately. In this way children are prevented from locking themselves in and are not exposed life threatening danger.
General safety
• Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by trained
personnel. Improper repairs can lead to extreme danger. If repairs are
required, contact our customer service department or your authorised dealer.
• Never place the washing machine into operation if the power cable is
damaged or the control panel, the countertop or the base are damaged to such an extent that the inside of the machine is accessible.
• Switch off the washing machine before cleaning, maintenance and
servicing. In addition, pull out the mains plug or – in the case of permanent connection – pull the circuit breaker, or completely remove
screw type fuses.
• Never remove the mains plug by pulling on the cable. Always grip the
plug.
• Octopus plugs, couplings and extension cables may not be used. Danger of overheating!
• Do not clean the washing machine with a jet stream of water. Danger
of electrical shock!
• When high temperature washing programs are selected, the glass in
the fill-in door becomes hot. Do not touch!
• Allow the wash-water to cool before emergency draining of the
appliance, cleaning of the circulation pump or emergency opening of
the door.
7
Operating instructions
• Small animals may gnaw at electrical power cables and water hoses.
Danger of electrical shock and water damage! Keep small animals
away from the washing machine.
2
Disposal
Dispose of the packaging!
Dispose of washing machine packaging materials properly. All packaging materials are environmentally sound and can be safely disposed of,
or burned in a refuse incineration plant.
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<).
Corrugated components are made from recycled paper and should be
disposed of at a paper recycling station.
Dispose of your old appliance!
If, at some point in time, the service life of the appliance has expired,
please take it to your nearest recycling centre, or to your appliance
dealer, who will accept the old appliance for a minimal fee.

Environmental protection tips
• No pre-wash is required for normally soiled washing. This saves you
detergent, water and time (and is good for the environment!).
• If the indicated load capacities are taken full advantage of, the washing machine is especially efficient.
• For small loads, use only one half to one third of the recommended
detergent quantity.
• Stains and soiling confined to given areas can be removed by means
of appropriate pre-treatment. You can then wash at lower temperatures.
• Wash lightly to medium soiled cottons with the energy saving program.
• Softeners are often not required. Try it! If you use a dryer, your washing will be soft and fluffy, even without softeners.
• A water softener should be used for water within a hardness range of
mid to high (as of hardness level II, see "Detergents and Conditioners"). Detergent can then always be dosed for water hardness level I
(= soft).

What does "update" mean?
New fabrics or new detergents could, in the future, require a new
washing technique (e. g. an additional rinse, more water to wash in the
detergent, ...).
Your washing machine is prepared for this eventuality. The controller is
fully electronic. The software in which the controller is defined can be
re-programmed.
If a new state of the art is achieved in washing technology, you can
bring your washing machine up to the latest standard with an update.
For more information concerning updates, please contact customer
service. Customer service can also inform you of the costs involved in
an update..
13
Operating instructions
Before washing the first time
0 1. Pull the detergent drawer a short distance out of the control panel.
2. Pour about 1 litre of water through the detergent drawer and into the
washing machine. This is required in order to seal the wash-water container so that the ECO valve can function properly.
3. Run a washing cycle without any washing (t/COTTONS 95, with
detergent quantity cut in half).
This serves to remove residues resulting from production of the
appliance from the drum and the wash-water container.
Prepare washing cycle
Sort washing and prepare
• Sort washing according to care symbol and type (see "Washing types
and care symbols").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent bunching up of washing and damage to washing,
close zippers, button up duvets and pillow cases, and tie up loose
ends from, for example, aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• Coloured, knitted fabrics, as well as wool and textiles with appliqués
should be turned inside out.
• Place small and delicate articles (baby booties, stockings, bras etc.)
into a washing net, a pillow case with zipper, or in large socks before
washing.
• Treat net curtains particularly carefully. Remove metal curtain rail
rollers or burred plastic rollers, or wrap these in a net or bag.
We cannot accept any liability for damage.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. White washing
will otherwise turn grey.
• New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these
items separately the first time.
• Mix small and large articles of washing! This improves washing efficiency, and the washing is more favourably distributed during the
spin cycle.
14
Operating instructions
• Fluff washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Observe tips for proper care such as "wash separately" and "wash separately several times"!.
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
Textiles made from cotton and linen which bear this care symbol are
insensitive to mechanical stress and high temperatures. The
t (COTTONS/LINEN) program is appropriate for this type of washing.
Linen è ë
Textiles made from cotton and linen which bear these care symbols are
insensitive to mechanical stress. The t (COTTONS/LINEN) program is
appropriate 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 to be handled carefully in machines. 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 require particularly careful
handling. The à (DELICATES) program is suitable for this type of
washing.
Wool and particularly delicate washing 9 ì ï
Textiles such as wool, wool mixtures and silk which bear these care
symbols are especially sensitive to mechanical stress. The
s/P (WOOL/HAND WASHABLES) program is appropriate for this type
of washing.
Important! Fabrics with this care symbol ñ (Do Not Wash!) must not
be washed in the washing machine!
15
Operating instructions
Detergent and conditioner
Which detergent and conditioner?
Use only detergents and conditioners which are suitable for use in
washing machines. Always observe the manufacturer’s instructions.
How much detergent and conditioner?
The required quantity depends upon:
• the amount of washing
2
If the detergent manufacturer does not include dosing instructions for
reduced loads, use one third less for half loads and only half of the full
load detergent quantity for very small loads.
• extent of soiling of the washing
• hardness of tap water
Observe instructions for use and dosing provided by the detergent and
conditioner manufacturer.
Using Water Softener
In the case of medium to very hard water (from hardness band II) water
softener should be used. Observe the manufacturer’s instructions! Then
always use detergent dosing for hardness band I (= soft). Information
on the hardness of the water in your area is provided by your local
water board.
2
Due to the fact that the water softener is added before the main wash
detergent (pre-softening of the water), only eighty percent of the
quantity of water softener indicated on the package is required.

Operating instructions
If the washing results are not satisfactory
If the washing is grey and there are calcium deposits in the drum
• Too little detergent was used.
• The wrong detergent was used.
• Special soiling was not pre-treated.
• Program or temperature not set correctly.
• When using component detergents, the individual components were
not used in the correct proportions.
If there are still gray stains on the washing
• Washing soiled with ointments, grease or oils was washed with too
little detergent.
• Too lower temperature was used for washing.
• A common cause is that softener – particularly that in concentrated
form – has got onto the washing. Wash out any such spots as quickly
as possible and use that particular softener carefully.
If at the end of the last rinse foam is still visible
• Modern detergents can cause foam also in the last rinse. The washing
is however sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white remnants on the washing
• This is an insoluble material contained in modern detergents.
This is not the result of unsatisfactory rinsing.
Shake or brush the washing. Perhaps you should turn the washing
inside out before washing in future. Reconsider choice of detergent,
possibly use liquid detergent.

Installation and Connection Instructions
Prepare the installation place
• The installation surface must be clean and dry, free of floor wax and
other smearing substances, so that the appliance does not slip off. Do
not use any lubricant as sliding aid.
• Installation on a high-veil carpet or floor tiles with soft sponge backs
is not recommended because the standing safety of the appliance is
then no longer ensured.
• By installation surfaces with small-format tiles, lay a conventional
rubber mat underneath.
• Small unevenness of the floor surface should never be levelled out by
laying pieces of wood, carton or similar elements, but rather basically
compensated by adjusting the screw feet.
• When it is unavoidable to install the appliance besides a gas or a
coal-fuelled cooker, due to spatial reasons: insert a piece of heatinsulating board (85 x 57 cm) between the cooker and the washing
machine; the board side facing the cooker must be provided with an
aluminium foil.
• The washing machine may not be installed in a frost-endangered
room. Frost-caused damages!
• Flexible feed and drain tubings may not be crinkled or squeezed.
Installation on a concrete base
When installing on a concrete base,
for safety reasons it is imperative
that steel plates are installed, the
washing machine is then installed in
these plates. The steel plates are
available from customer service
under ET-No. 645 425 058.
Installation on vibrating
floors
In the case of floors that vibrate, especially wooden floors with floorboards that flex, a water-proof wooden panel of at least 15 mm thickness must be firmly screwed to at least 2 floor beams. If possible, install
the appliance in a corner of the room: the wooden floor is more firmly
supported in the corners and thus has less tendency to resonant vibration.
41
Installation and Connection Instructions
Levelling on uneven floors
Using the four adjustable threaded feet, compensation can be made for
unevenness in the floor and the height of the appliance adjusted. The
height can be adjusted over the range +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
all the way to the stop.
2. Adjust the threaded feet so that the appliance is level and sits stably.
The appliance must not rock across the corners when operating under
load.
3. If necessary, check positioning with a spirit level.
Important! Never compensate for small areas of unevenness in the
floor through the use of wooden wedges, cardboard or the like. Levelling should only ever be performed by adjusting the feet.
42
Installation and Connection Instructions
Power supply
Details on the mains voltage,
type of current and the necessary fuse protection are to be
found on the rating plate. The
rating plate is above and
behind the door.
For permanent electrical connection within the electrical
circuit, provisions must be made which allow for electrical disconnection of the appliance from the mains with a contact opening of at least
3 mm at all poles. Suitable devices include circuit breakers, fuses
(threaded fuses must be entirely removed from the socket), ground
fault circuit interrupters and contactors. Permanent connection may
only be carried out by an authorised electrician.

Water pressure must be equal to a least 1 bar (= 10N/cm2 = 0.1 MPa),
and no more than 10 bar (= 100N/cm2 = 1 MPa).
• By more than 10 bar: connect a pressure reduction valve upstream.
• By less than 1 bar: Unscrew the flexible inlet tubing on the magnetic
inlet valve on one side of the appliance and remove the flow meter
(thereby remove the sieve by means of a pair of pointed pliers and
then remove the rubber washer behind it). Remount the sieve.

Installation and Connection Instructions
Water feed
A flexible pressure tubing of 1.3m length is supplied.
If a longer feed tubing is needed, a complete VDE-approved tubing set
with mounted screw connections, supplied by our customer service,
should be used exclusively.
– For washing machines without Aqua-Control, tubing sets are
available in lengths of 2.2m, 3.5m and 5m.
– For washing machines with Aqua-Control, tubing sets are available
in lengths of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.9m.
Attention! Under no circumstances may tubing be pieced together for
the purpose of lengthening!
Sealing rings are either inserted in plastic nuts of the tubing screw connection or contained in an accompanying packet. Do not use other
seals.

Installation and Connection Instructions
Water drain-off
The drain-off tubing can be connected either to a siphon or be hanged
in a washing or sink basin or in a bathtub.
For extension (max. 3 m floor length and up to 80 cm high) only original tubing may be used. The customer service supplies drain-off tubing
of 2.7 and 4m lengths.

Water drain-off inside a siphon
The spout at the end of the tubing fits all common siphon types.
Make the connection spout/siphon secure with a tubing clip.
Water drain-off inside a basin
For hanging in a wash basin, sink or bath,
the drain hose must be prevented from
moving using the detachable elbow supplied.
The tube could otherwise be pushed out of
the basin by the reactive force imparted by
draining water.
Small sink basins are not suitable!
Fasten the elbow on the water tap or on
the wall by means of the hole.
Delivery heights above 1m
Every washing machine is provided with a suds pump for draining the
washing/rinsing suds, which can deliver liquids via the drain-off tubing
up to a height of 1m, measured from the standing level of the machine.
For delivery heights above 1m please establish contact with the AEG
customer service.

SERVICE
If a malfunction should occur at the appliance, refer first to the section
"What to do when ..." in these user instructions. If you do not find any
applicable instructions there, contact your customer service centre.
(Addresses and telephone number can be found in the "Service Departments" section.)
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 S-number.
Both of these number can be found
on the rating plate on the inside of
the door of your washing machine.
PNC
......................................................
S-No. ......................................................
In addition to this please establish if possible:
• How is the malfunction noticeable ?
• Under what circumstances does the malfunction occur?
• Do an error message (( and an number) appear in the multi-display?
You will be charged even during the warranty period
– if you could have corrected the malfunction yourself with the help of
the malfunctions table (see "What to do when ..." section),
– if the customer service technician is required to make several trips
because he had not received all relevant information before his visit,
and must return, for example, to pick up replacement parts. This
additional driving can be avoided if your telephone call is well prepared, as described above.
