Safety instructions
1 Safety instructions
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.
• 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!
• 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!
101
Safety instructions
Safety of children
• 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) must not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire! Explosion
hazard!
• Laundry items containing sponge rubber or rubber-like materials
must not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire!
• 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!
• 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!
• In the case of washer / dryer tower combinations, do not place any
objects on the dryer during use as they could drop down.
102
Safety instructions
Installation and connection
• First take-off the base shroud before carrying the dryer!
• Check the dryer for Transportation damage. Never connect-up a
damaged appliance! Contact your supplier if the appliance is
damaged.
• Do not set-up the dryer in frost-endangered rooms!
• Set-up the dryer horizontal!
• Do not place the dryer on high-pile carpet floors!
This would hinder air circulation at the ventilation slots!
• If the dryer is placed adjacent to a gas, coal or electric cooking stove,
interpose a thermally insulating non-combustible plate between the
dryer and the stove (dimensions: 85x57,5cm).
• The electric power plug connector of the appliance must remain
accessible even after erection.
• The technical conditions of the electric power supply company for
making fixed connections of electrical appliances to the mains
require that such connections may only be made by an authorised
electrician.
103
General information
3 General 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.
• When using so-called "fabric conditioner sheets", a deposit on the
fluff filter may result, which can cause a blockage. We therefore
recommend not using fabric conditioner sheets.
• 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.
104
Disposal
2 Disposal
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!
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.
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.
The materials can be recycled in accordance with their markings. Standard tools (crosshead screwdriver, hammer) are sufficient to dismantle
the old appliance.
105
Environmental protection tips
2 Environmental protection tips
• When washing, do not use soft rinsing agent!
Your laundry will become light and soft in the laundry dryer even
without a soft rinsing agent. Just try it!
• Loosen your laundry!
Loosen your laundry before filling it into the dryer. This avoids lengthy
running times and creasing. Pre-dry your laundry adequately!
A general rule is: The better you spin-dry your laundry before final
drying, the more economical will be the function of the dryer.
In the following table we give an overview of specific consumption
data depending on the spinning speed. These data are valid for 5kg
laundry dried with the program 2 R COTTON CUPBOARD DRY:

If the amount of laundry is not enough for a particular degree of
drying (e.g. 4 R HAND IRON), you should dry it in stages for best
economy: Fill the dryer and select the program 4 R HAND IRON; after
the end of this program take out your laundry for ironing. Finally dry
the remaining laundry with the program 2 R CUPBOARD DRY.
• Use the SPECIAL CARE (S) button only for fill weights up to 2.5kg!
• Clean the fluff strainer after every drying run!
• Empty the condensate container after every drying process!
1
Caution! The condensate is not suitable for drinking or for use with
foodstuffs.
You can use the collected condensate as distilled water in the
household, but first pour it through a paper filter bag.
• Clean the condenser regularly!
The dryer consumes less energy if you clean the condenser regularly.

Service
In the chapter "Troubleshooting" 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 "Troubleshooting "),
– 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.
