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 the packaging materials used are harmless to the environment and can be recycled.
• Plastic parts are marked with standard international abbreviations:
>PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. sheet wrapping material
>PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. padding material (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.
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
Running Time Display
3
14
The running times of the washing programs
depend on the usual washing practice and
the ambient conditions at the installation
location.
The washing type and quantity, the type of washing powder, the water
temperature and the room temperature etc. can influence the duration
of the washing program.
The washing machine saves from each program the running times of
the last wash cycles and calculates from them the average running time
for a washing cycle. This average running time is shown by the multi
display during the next wash.
After several washes, the running time shown in the multi display is
thereby adapted to the usual washing practice and the ambient
conditions at the installation location.
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.
For further information on the ”Update”, consult the Customer Service.
You can also ask the Customer Service about the costs of an ”Update”.
Water Protection Aqua Control +
Aqua Alarm
In the event of damage to the supply hose, the system blocks the further supply of water to the unit directly st 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. When the water protection
system responds, a warning signal sounds at the same time.
15
Instructions for use
Before the First Wash
0
Carry out a washing operation without washing (COTTONS/BLANC
95 °C, with half the quantity of washing powder/liquid).
This removes residues left over from production on the drum and
solution container.
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”!

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 (SANS REPASSAGE), only half the
amount of detergent recommended for a full load.
Refer to the detergent/care 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.
47
Setting up and connection instructions
Compensate for Floor Unevenness
Automatic Adjustment Foot: Your washing machine's rear left foot is
of a spring leg design. This guarantees good stability of the unit, even
at high spinning speeds.

0 1. Adjust the three adjustment feet
to the setpoint 10mm. To do this,
use the supplied special button to
remove the transport safeguard.
If the automatic adjustment foot
still does not reach the floor:
2. Manually extend the automatic
adjustment foot (rear left) by the
necessary amount.
3. If necessary, check the setting
with a spirit level.
Attention! Never use wood, card
or similar underlays to compensate for minor floor unevenness. Always use the adjustable screw-type
feet of the machine.

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?
• Does the multidisplay show an error message?
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.
