Safety
The safety aspects of AEG electrical appliances comply with accepted
technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. However, as
manufacturers we regard it as our responsibility to inform you about
the following safety instructions.
Before Using for the First Time
• Refer to the "Installation and Connection Instructions" further on in
this user information.
• If units are delivered in the winter months at minus temperatures:
Store the washing machine at room temperature for a few hours before putting it into operation.
Correct Use
• The washing machine is only intended for washing normal domestic
washing. If the appliance is used for a wrong purpose or wrongly operated, the manufacturer cannot assume any liability for any damages.
• Additions or modifications to the washing machine are strictly forbidden due to safety reasons.
• Use only detergent which is suitable for washing machines. Refer to
the detergent manufacturer's instructions.
• The washing must not contain any flammable solvents. Also bear this
in mind when washing pre-cleaned washing.
• Do not use the washing machine for dry-cleaning.
• Dyes /dye-removing agents may only be used in the washing machine
if the manufacturer expressly permits use of these products. We cannot accept liability for any damage.
• Use only water from the water mains. Use rain water or service water
only if it meets the requirements defined in DIN 1986 and DIN 1988.
• Frost damage is not covered by the warranty! If the washing machine
is in a room subject to possible frost hazards, emergency emptying
must be carried out if there is a risk of frost (see the Section "Carrying out emergency emptying“).
6
Operating Instructions
Safety of Children and Infirm Persons
• Packaging materials (e.g. films, polystyrene) can be dangerous for
children. Risk of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.
• The appliance is not intendet for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
• Children frequently cannot recognise hazards involved in handling
electrical appliances. Therefore, ensure that they are properly supervised during operation and never allow children to play with the
washing machine -there is a risk that they can lock themselves inside it.
• Ensure that children or small animals do not climb into the washing
machine's drum.
• When disposing of washing machines pull out the mains plug, destroy
the door lock, cut off the electrical supply lead and dispose of the
plug and remaining cable. This means that playing children cannot
shut themselves in and cannot encounter a potentially lethal hazard.
General Safety
• Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by qualified
specialists. Incorrect repairs may result in significant risk to the user.
If repairs are necessary, consult our customer service or your specialist dealer.
• Never use the washing machine if the mains cable is damaged or the
conrol panel, work surface or base panel area are so badly damaged
that the interior of the unit is openly 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 circuit breaker at
the household power distribution box or completely remove the
screw-in fuse.
• If operation is stopped, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and shut off the tap.
• 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 risk of fire with overheating!
• Do not spray down the washing machine with a water jet. Risk of
electric shock!
7
Operating Instructions
• The glass in the door becomes hot in the case of wash programmes
with high temperatures. Do not touch!
• Allow the washing solution to cool before carrying out an emergency
emptying operation or cleaning the drain pump.
• 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.
2
Disposal
Disposing of the Packaging Material!
Dispose of the packaging of your washing machine correctly. All pakkaging materials used are environmentally-compatible and recyclable.
• Plastic parts are identified with internationally standardised abbreviations:
>PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. packing films.
>PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. cushion parts (always CFC-free)
>POM< for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clips.
• Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and
should be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling.
Disposing of your old appliance!
When you put your unit out of operation one day, please bring it to
your nearest recycling centre or to your dealer.

Environmental tips
• A pre-wash cycle is not necessary in the case of washing which is not
excessively dirt. This saves detergent, water and time (and is gentle on
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.
• Suitable pre-treatment enables marks and limited amounts of dirt to
be removed. You can then wash at a lower temperature.
• Wash slightly to normally dirty cottons with the energy-saving program.
• There is often no need for the softener. Try it once! If you use a drier,
your washing will become soft and fluffy even without a softener.
• In the case of medium to high water hardness (hardness range runs to
upwards, see "Detergent and care agents“), you should use a water
softener. The detergent can then always be metered for hardness
range I (= soft).

values can deviate from the stated values depending on the water pressure,
hardness, inlet temperature, room temperature, type and quantity of washing,
the washing powder/liquid used, fluctuations in the mains voltage and selected
additional functions.
What does "UPDATE“ mean?
Your washing machine's washing programs are controlled by software.
New types of textiles or new detergents may require new washing programs in the future. In most cases, the software can be adapted to this.
For further information on the "update“, please consult the Customer
Service. You can also enquire about the costs for an "update“ with your
Customer Service.
Water Protection Aqua Control
In the event of damage to the supply hose, the system blocks the further supply of water to the unit directly at the water tap.
If water escapes elsewhere, the drainage pump automatically pumps
off – even if the unit is switched off. The washing machine merely has
to be connected to the electricity mains.
14
Operating Instructions
Before the First Wash
0
Carry out a washing operation without washing (COTTONS 95 °C, with
half the quantity of washing powder/liquid).
This removes residues left over from production on the drum and solution container.
Prepare washing cycle
Sort washing and prepare
• Sort the washing according to the care symbol and type (see "Washing types and care codes").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• To prevent damage to the washing and tangled washing: Close zip
fasteners, button bed and pillow covers closed, tie up loose strings
e.g. of aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• In the case of knitted coloured textiles and also with wool and textiles with jewelry attached: turn inside out.
• Wash small and sensitive items (e.g. baby socks, tights and stockings,
bras etc.) in a washing net, a cushion with a zip fastener or in larger
socks.
• Handle curtains with particular care. Metal rollers or burred, plastic
rollers must be removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept
liability for damage.
• Coloureds and white items must not be washed together in a washing
cycle. This could discolour white washing or turn it grey.
• There is often excess dye in new, coloured items. It is best to wash
such items separately the first time.
• Mix small and large items. This improves the washing effect and the
washing is more favourably distributed during spinning.
• Fluff washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Pay attention to the care instruction "wash separately" and "wash
separately several times".

Operating Instructions
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
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 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 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 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.

Attention! Textiles with the care codeñ (Do not wash!) must not be
washed in the washing machine!
16
Operating Instructions
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, 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 class II upwards), you
should use softener. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent for hardness class I
(= soft). The responisable water works will provide information on the
local water hardness.
2
Since the water softener is rinsed in before the main detergent (water
pre-softening), 80% of the stated quantity of softener shown on the
package is sufficient.

Changing the spin speed
Continue pressing the spin speed/RINSE HOLD button until the indicator for the desired spin speed is
illuminated.
If you do not change the spin speed, the final spin
will be adjusted automatically depending on the
type of wash cycle:
– COTTONS/LINEN
1600 revolutions per minute
– EASY-CARES/EASY IRON
900 revolutions per minute
– DELICATES
700 revolutions per minute
– WOOL/P (Handwash)
900 revolutions per minute
The speed for the intermediate spin cycle is dependent on the wash cycle selected and cannot be altered.

Selecting the rinse hold function
Continue pressing the spin speed/RINSE HOLD button until the RINSE
HOLD indicator is illuminated.
If RINSE HOLD is selected, the washing will remain in the final rinse water and will not be spun.
The washing will not be spun throughout the entire wash cycle. As a result the cycle is a very quiet one. RINSE HOLD is therefore especially
suitable for washing at night.
Note: The laundry remains lying in the water until you drain or spin
(see section “Ending a wash cycle”). After 18 hours however, it is automatically drained and pumped.

If the washing results are not satisfactory
If the washing has turned grey and if limescale is deposited in the
drum, then
• Too little detergent was used.
• The wrong detergent was used.
• Special soiling was not pre-treated.
• Program or temperature not set correctly.
• If multi-component detergents are used, the individual components
were not used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey spots on the washing,
• Washing soiled with ointments, grease or oils was washed with too
little detergent.
• Too lower temperature was used for washing.
• A frequent cause is that softener - particularly that in concentrated
form - has reached the washing. Wash out such spots quickly and use
the softener concerned carefully.
If at the end of the last rinse foam is still visible
• Modern detergents can also cause foam in the last rinse. However,
the washing is still sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white remnants on the washing
• These are insoluble components of modern detergents. They are not
the result of an insufficient rinsing effect.
Shake or brush out the washing. In future, perhaps you should turn
the washing inside out before washing it. Examine your choice of detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.

Installation Safety Precautions
• Do not tilt the washing machine onto its front or onto its right side
(viewed from the front). Electronic components can get wet.
• Check the washing machine for transport damages. A damaged unit
must never be put into operation under any circumstances. In the
event of damage, please contact your supplier.
• Ensure that all parts of the transport safeguard are removed and that
the unit is splash protected, see "Removing transport safeguard".
Otherwise, the units or neighbouring furniture can be damaged when
spinning.
• Always insert the plug into a correctly installed earthed socket.
• In the case of permanent connection: A permanent connection may
only be made by an authorised specialist.
• Before putting the machine into operation, ensure that the mains
voltage and current type shown on the unit's rating plate correspond
with those at the place where the machine is being installed. The fuse
rating is also found on the rating plate.
• Should work be carried out on the water supply installations in order
to allow the machine to be connected properly to the water supply,
this work must be carried out by an authorised installer.
• Should work be carried out on the mains supply in order to allow the
machine to be connected properly to the electricity supply, this work
must be carried out by an authorised electrician.
• The mains lead may only be replaced by the customer service or by an
authorised electrician.

wet.
• Never transport the unit without the transport safeguard. Do not remove the transport safeguard until the appliance is at the installation
location. Transporting the unit without the transport safeguard can
damage it.
• Lift the appliance neither by an open filling door nor by the base.
When transporting the unit with a sack trolley:
• Attach the sack trolley only at the side. The sack trolley shovel must
not be longer than 24 cm, otherwise the float switch can be destroyed.

Installation and connection instructions
Prepare the installation place
• The installation surface must be clean and dry, free of floor polish
residues and other greasy coatings so that the unit does not slip
away. Do not use lubricants as a 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.
• Minor unevenness of the floor surface should never be levelled out by
laying pieces of wood, card or similar materials, but rather should always be compensated for by adjusting the screw feet.
• If, for space reasons, it is not possible to avoid setting up the unit directly next to a gas or coal-fired cooker: install a thermal insulation
panel between the cooker and washing machine (85 x 57cm) which
must have an aluminium film 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 hazard!
• Flexible feed and drain tubings may not be crinkled or squeezed.
Installation on a concrete base
If the unit is set up on a concrete base,
for safety reasons it is essential to fit
stand plates in which the washing machine is adjusted. The stand plates are
available from Customer Service under
the spare parts number 645 425 058.
Installation on vibrating floors
Where the floor vibrates, particularly in the case of wooden beam
floors with pliable boards, securely screw a water-resistant wooden
panel at least 15mm thick onto at least 2 floor planks. If possible, set up
the unit in the corner of a room, as the wooden floor is optimally restrained there and is therefore least likely to be subject to resonance vibrations.

Installation and connection instructions
Compensate for floor unevenness
Automatic adjustment foot: The rear left foot of your washing machine is designed as a spring leg. This means that it guarantees that
your unit will stand securely even at high spin speeds.
If, nevertheless, the washing machine is unstable during spinning,
please proceed as follows:
0 1. Set the three adjusted feet at the
nominal value of 10 mm. To do
this, use the supplied special
spanner to remove the transport
safeguard.
If the automatically adjusting
foot does not reach the floor:
2. Automatic adjustment foot (rear
left) manually for extending the
reqired dimension.
3. If necessary, check the setting
with a spirit level.
Caution! Never use wood, card or
similar underlays to level out minor
floor unevenness. Instead, always adjust
the adjustment foot.

Installation and connection instructions
Electrical connection
Details of the mains voltage, current
type and required fuses can be
found on the rating plate. The rating plate is located at the top
above the filling 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.
;
This appliance complies with the following EC directives:
– The "Low Voltage Directive" 72/23/EU with changes
– The "EMC Directive" 89/336/EU with changes
Water connection
3
The washing machine has safety features which prevent back-contamination of the drinking water and which conform to the national regulations of the water authorities (e.g. for Germany: DVGW guidelines).
This means that additional protective measures in the installation are
not necessary.
Important!
– Units for connecting to cold water must not be connected to hot water.
– Use only new hose sets for the connection.
Permissible water pressure
The water pressure must be at least 1 bar (= 10 N/cm2 = 0.1 Mpa), maximum 10 bar = 100 N/cm2 = 1 Mpa).
• If more than 10 bar: Connect a pressure-reduction valve upstream.
• If less than 1 bar: Unscrew the inlet hose on the unit side at the solenoid intake valve and remove the flow regulator (to do this, remove
the filter with pointed pliers and take out the rubber washer behind).
Replace the filter.

Installation and connection instructions
Water inflow
A pressure hose 1.5m 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.
– Hose sets in lengths of 2.2m, 3.5m and 5m are available for washing
machines without Aqua-Control.
– Hose sets in lengths of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.9m are available for washing machines with Aqua-Control.
Caution! 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
Caution!
– Do not lay the infeed hose vertically downwards. Instead, turn
it to the right or left as shown
in the diagram.
– Tighten the hose connection
only by hand.
2. Connect the hose with the straight connection
to a water tap with a R 3/4 (inch) screw thread.
Caution! Only tighten the screw connection manually.
3. By slowly opening the water tap before putting
the washing machine into operation, check that
the connection is free of leaks.
47
Installation and connection instructions
Water drain
The drainage hose can either be connected to a siphon or hung in a
wash basin or discharge basin or a bath tub.
Only original hoses may be used for extensions (max. 3m laid on the
floor and then up to 80cm high). Customer Service stocks drainage
hoses in lengths of 2.7 and 4m.
Important! It is essential to lay the drainage hose without kinks.
0
Water drain-off inside a siphon
The grommet on the hose end fits all
standard siphon types.
Secure the connection between the
grommet and siphon with a hose clamp.
Water drain-off inside a basin
Important!
– Small basins are not suitable for
drainage. Water could overflow!
– The end of the drainage hose must not
be submerged in the pumped-out water. Otherwise, the water could be
sucked back into the unit.
0
– When hanging in a wash basin or a
bath tub, the drainage hose must be
secured with the supplied attachable
bend to prevent it slipping. The backsurge force of the escaping water
could otherwise force the hose out of
the basin.
Tie the bend to the tap or the wall using
a piece of string.
Delivery heads over 1m
To pump off the washing / rinsing solution, every washing machine has
a drain pump which carries liquids up to a height of 1m via the drainage hose, calculated from the machine's standing surface.
Please contact Customer Service for delivery heads of over 1m.

In the chapter "What to do if...“ , some faults are listed which you can
remedy yourself. Look there first if a fault occurs. If you do not find any
information there, please consult your Customer Service. (You can find
the addresses and telephone numbers in the section "Customer Service
Centres“.)
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 S. number. You will find both on the rating
plate on the inside of the door of
your washing machine.
PNC .....................................................
S. No. .....................................................
Answer as precisely as possible:
• What form does the fault take?
• Under what circumstances does the fault occur?
• Does the multi display show an error message?
When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?
– If you could have remedied the fault yourself with the aid of the fault
table (see the section "What to do if..."),
– If several journeys by the customer service technician are necessary
because for example he did not receive all the important information
before his visit and must collect spare parts. These multiple trips can
be avoided if you prepare your phone call as described above.
