Important Safety Information
1Important Safety Information
The safety of AEG electrical appliances complies with the established
technical principles and statutory equipment safety regulations. Nevertheless, as manufacturer we have to draw your attention to the following safety instructions.
General safety
• Repairs of the dryer may be carried out only by trained personnel.
Incompetently carried out repairs can entail considerable hazards for
the user. Please get in touch with our customer service or with an
authorised AEG dealer when repair is necessary.
• Before commencing operation please make sure that the nominal
voltage and type of supply specified on the type plate of the appliance correspond to the actual nominal voltage and supply type at the
place of utilisation. The fuse rating is also specified on the type plate.
• Never operate the dryer when the mains cable is damaged or when
the operator control mask, work plate or base shrouding are damaged
such that there is direct access to the interior of the appliance.
• Switch-off the dryer before carrying out any cleaning, care and
maintenance tasks! You are quite safe if you disconnect the mains
plug from the power outlet or – if the electrical connection is permanent – if you switch-off the circuit breaker in the fusebox or screw
the fuse cartridge right out of its holder.
• If the appliance will be out of operation for an extended period of
time, unplug it from the mains.
• Never pull on the cable to disconnect the mains plug from the power
outlet. Always grasp and pull-out the plug.
• Don’t lean on the opened door; this could make the appliance fall
over.
• Don’t use a water jet to spray-down the appliance. Danger of electric
shock!
• When closing the door, please check that the washing is not caught
in it.
• If you interrupt the drying process to take out laundry, bear in mind
that the laundry and the drum could be hot.
• Adaptors and extension cables must not be used. There is risk of fire
because of overheating!
5
Important Safety Information
Safety of children and infirm persons
• The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm
persons without supervision.
• Children are often not aware of the dangers involved when handling
electrical equipment. Therefore provide the necessary supervision of
children when operating the appliance and do not let children play
with the dryer – there is a danger that children could become trapped
inside the appliance.
• Packaging parts (e.g. films, styropore) can be dangerous for children.
Danger of suffocation! Keep packaging parts out of reach of children.
• Make sure that children or small animals do not climb into the drum
of the dryer. For this purpose keep the door of the dryer closed when
the appliance is not in use.
Utilisation in accordance with the intended purpose
• Conversions or modifications of the dryer are forbidden for safety
reasons.
• Use the dryer only to dry ordinary household laundry! The manufacturer accepts no liability for any damage resulting from incorrect
operation or utilisation for an unintended purpose.
• Dry only laundry which has been washed in water. In particular,
textiles which have been treated with inflammable cleaning agents
and solvents (petrol-ether, alcohol, stain remover and similar
materials) or have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking
oil must not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire! Explosion hazard!
Thouse textiles should first be washed in hot water with extra
detergent.
• Laundry items containing sponge rubber or rubber-like materials
must not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire!
• Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be
placed in a tumble dryer. Damage to the tumble dryer can result if
metal reinforcements come loose during drying.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps should not be placed in a tumble
dryer.
• Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble
dryer to eliminate the effects of static electricity.
• Washing that is in poor condition (heavily worn) and items with loose
fillings (cushions) that could break open must not be dried or aired.
There is a risk of fire!
6
Important Safety Information
• Washing with rigid components (foot mats) will cover the air slots;
the slots will also be covered if the drum is overfilled. Observe the
maximum load of 5 kg. There is a risk of overheating which could
cause a fire!
• Only dry washing that does not contain any explosive objects (fire
lighters, spray cans). There is a risk of fire or an explosion!
• Clean the fluff filter after each drying procedure.
• In the case of washer / dryer tower combinations, do not place any
objects on the dryer during use as they could drop down.
Installation and connection
• Please follow the separate Installation and connection instructions.
If necessary get some advice from your local chimney sweep or
building authorities.
• If the tumble dryer has to be carried, first remove the base strip!
• Check the tumble dryer fortransport damages. Under no
circumstances should you connect a damaged appliance! Please
contact your supplier in the event of damages.
• Do not install the tumble dryer in rooms which are in danger of
freezing!
• Install the tumble dryer level!
• When installed next to a gas, coal or electric heater: a heat
insulating, non-flammable board must be inserted (dimensions:
85x57.5 cm).
• The plug of the appliance must be freely accessible after installation.
• The dryer should have its own waste air guide that is independent of
the waste air guides of other appliances.
• The outgoing air from the tumble dryer may not be led into a smoke
or chimney flute.
• Do not lead the outgoing air into a shaft which serves to ventilate
rooms in which heating is installed.
• Do not adjust or cover the waste air outlet.
• The waste air hose must not be crushed or have kinks. This would
result in lower drying performance, longer drying time and increased
consumption of energy. A large build-up of waste air could cause the
fuse to trip.
• Do not install the tumble dryer in a room in which heaters with coal
and oil connected to a chimney are located in which the under
pressure is 0.04mbar or more.
7
General Information
• Provide sufficient ventilation to avoid underpressure from forming.
• In accordance with the technical connection conditions of the power
utilities, a permanent connection to the power supply may only be
made by an authorised electrician.
• The dryer sucks in air. You should therefore keep the area around the
appliance clean and also not store any flammable items that may be
sucked into the appliance (e.g. cat litter, shavings) in front of it. There
is risk of fire!
3General Information
• Starched washing leaves traces of starch on the drum and therefore
should not be placed in the tumble dryer.
• If you exceed the maximum load stipulated in the program table your
washing is more likely to get creased! For very delicate fabrics you
should only fill in 1.5kg washing at the most.
• For your information: 70 per cent of fabric wear is caused by being
worn, 20 per cent by washing and only 10 per cent by being dried in
a tumble dryer. As the fabric is worn down, fluff gathers in the fluff
filter. When using a tumble dryer, only approx. 0.03g fluff per kilogramme washing is produced.
8
Disposal
2Disposal
Packaging
Dispose of the packaging material!
Dispose of the packaging material of your tumble dryer 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.
Disposal of the old appliance!
When you eventually stop using your tumble dryer please bring it to
the nearest recycling centre or to your dealer who will take it back for a
small fee.
1
Warning! When disposing of the tumble dryer, 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.
The materials can be recycled in accordance with their markings. Standard tools (crosshead screwdriver, hammer) are sufficient to dismantle
the old appliance.

Environmental protection tips
2 Environmental protection tips
• Your laundry will become light and soft in the tumble dryer even without a fabric softening agent.
• Loosen your laundry before loading it into the dryer. This helps to prevent lengthy running times and creasing.
• Ensure your laundry is well spun.

Service
In the chapter "Something not working?" 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. It is nearby and if necessary can reach you quickly.
(Addresses and phone numbers can be found in the Warranty
Conditions/Service Departments)
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. They are both on
the type plate behind your tumble dryer’s door.
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 "Something not working? "),
– 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.
