Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the
wash cycle, because it is not evenly distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute
the wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed "Something Not Working".

Tips for environmental protection
To save water, energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend
that you follow these tips:
• Normally soiled laundry may be washed without prewashing in order
to save detergent, water and time (the environment is protected too!).
• Use the energy saving programme when washing normally soiled garments.
• The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded (for both
washing and drying cycles).
• When small loads are washed, use only half to two thirds of the recommended amount of detergent.
• The machine will consume less energy if the laundry is adequately
spun before being dried.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling can be
removed; the laundry can then be washed at a lower temperature.
9
Main features of your washer-dryer
• Programme and temperature setting using the programme selector.
• Stain programme for effectively treating stained washing.
• Energy saving programme for normally soiled cotton items.
• Speed for the final spin can be reduced to 900, 700 or 500 rpm.
• RINSE HOLD: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to
prevent creasing.
• Delay timer: programme start can be delayed by 1 to 19 hours (e.g.
to times with a more economical power rate).
• Programme progress display showing the programme steps selected
and the programme phase which is running.
• Because of its gentle washing action, the special wool cycle washes
your garments with extreme care.
• The drying programmes will enable you to have dry and soft laundry in a short time.
• 3-compartment drawer for detergent and fabric softener.
• Unbalance detection device: to prevent vibration during spinning.

Description of the appliance
PREWASH
The machine performs a prewash cycle at 40°C max. The prewash cycle
ends with a short spin in programmes for Cotton and Easy-cares, and
with emptying of the water only for Delicates.
This option is not available with the wool programme.
For use when washing heavily soiled laundry.
Important: the STAIN, PREWASH and QUICK WASH options cannot be
selected together: one automatically disables the others.
EXTRA RINSE

machine performs 4 rinses instead of 3.
This option is recommended for people who are allergic to detergents
and in areas where the water is very soft.
RINSE HOLD
When this button is pressed, the last rinse water is not emptied out, to
prevent the fabrics from creasing. When the programme has finished,
the corresponding pilot light on the programme progress display flashes
to indicate that the water must be emptied out.
To empty out water:
• press the START/PAUSE button: after emptying, the machine performs
the spin cycle required for the type of wash selected;
• select the PUMP OUT programme to empty out the water without
spinning.
Warning! The programme selector dial must be turned first to RESET
and then to programme “PUMP OUT”.
This option can also be selected for the wool programme: the last

Cancelling a programme
To cancel a programme which is running, turn the programme selector
dial to the RESET position: three flashing dashes will be displayed.
Warning! After a programme which ends with water in the drum
(RINSE HOLD option), turn the selector dial first to RESET and then to
the PUMP OUT programme.
Altering a programme which is running
To alter a programme, first set the machine to PAUSE by pressing the
START/PAUSE button.
Before the machine starts the heating phase, i.e. within the first 15
minutes for cotton programmes, 10 minutes for easy-cares and delicate
programmes and 5 minutes for the wool programme, the selected wash
cycle can be modified.
Warning! If the programme selector dial is turned first to RESET and then
to the new programme, the programme which is running is cancelled, the
water is emptied out and the machine re-starts from water filling. To
simply modify the programme which is running, turn the programme
selector dial to the desired position (avoiding the RESET position): when the
START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the machine restarts with the newly
selected programme from the point at which it was interrupted.
Opening the door after the programme has started
The door can only be opened before the machine starts the heating
phase (within the first 15, 10 or 5 minutes, depending on the programme selected - see paragraph above) and during the rinse phase.
Set the machine to PAUSE (by pressing the START/PAUSE button).
If the door does not open, this means that the machine is already heating, or that the water level is above the bottom edge of the door.
This prevents water from spilling out when the door is opened.

Description of the appliance
Detergent dispenser drawer
Programme chart
Compartment for prewash or soak detergent and stain remover. The prewash
or soak detergent is added at the beginning of the wash programme. The
stain remover is added during the STAIN-Action phase in the main wash.
Compartment for powder or liquid detergent used for main wash.
It is emptied at the beginning of the wash cycle.
Compartment for liquid additives (fabric softener, starch).
It is emptied at the last rinse.
The quantity of additives must not exceed the “MAX” mark in the
drawer.
Before the first wash
Before your first wash, we recommend that you run a cotton cycle at
60°C, without any laundry in the machine, to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and tub.
Pour 1/2 a measure of detergent into the dispenser drawer and start the
machine.
18
Preparing the wash cycle
Sorting out and preparing the laundry
• Sort out the laundry according to type of fabrics and care labels (see
“Types of fabric and care labels”).
• Empty pockets.
• Remove any metal parts (safety pins, clips, etc.).
• To prevent the laundry from getting damaged and forming bundles,
it is advisable to close zips, button up pillowcases and quilt covers and
tie up loose straps such as those of aprons.
• Turn double faced items inside out (sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.)
• Turn coloured knitted fabrics, woollens and fabrics with trim inside
out.
• Wash small and delicate items (baby socks, tights) inside a laundry net
or in a pillow case closed with a zip, or in larger socks.
• Treat curtains with special care. Remove all metal or plastic hooks or
put them in a net or a bag. We decline any responsibility in case of
damage.
• Whites and coloureds must be washed separately: white items can
loose their whiteness.
• New coloured fabrics often have excess dyes; it is advisable to wash
them separately for the first time.
• Wash small and large items together; this improves the washing result
and the laundry is better distributed during spinning.
• Shake out garments before putting them into the machine.
• Insert each garment separately.

Types of fabric and care labels
The labels on garments help you to select the most suitable wash programme. The laundry should be sorted out according to the type of fabric and the instructions indicated on care labels.
Temperatures indicated on labels are always maximum temperatures.
Cotton 95
Linen and cottons marked with this symbol can be washed at high temperatures.
Cotton 60
Linen and cottons marked with this symbol are colourfast and can be
washed at 60°C.
Cotton 40 30
Garments marked with these symbols have delicate colours, therefore
the washing temperature must not exceed these values.
Synthetics (Easy-cares) 40 60
Mixed and synthetic fabrics marked with these symbols require a gentle
wash programme and they must therefore be washed using the specific
programme.
20
Preparing the wash cycle
Delicates 40 30
Microfibres, easy-cares or curtains marked with these symbols require a
very gentle treatment.
The DELICATES programme is suitable for this type of fabric.
40
Woollens and particularly delicate items
Fabrics such as wool, wool mix or silk marked with this symbol are particularly sensitive to machine washing.
The WOOLLENS programme is suitable for this type of fabric.
Fabrics marked with the
symbol (wool) can be machine washed only
if the label indicates “does not felt” or “machine washable”.
If the label has the symbol
(do not wash), the garments must not be
machine washed!
21
Preparing the wash cycle
Detergents and additives
Which detergent?....
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your appliance, it is
important to use the right detergent in your everyday wash, and only
detergents recommended for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and household textiles and
to make them last longer you should use different types of detergent
for different washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.
WHITES
We recommend the Ariel product range which is
biological and designed to provide excellent cleaning and stain removal even at low temperatures.
NON BIOLOGICAL
If you prefer to use a non biological detergent, which
does not contain enzymes we recommend Fairy. Fairy
provides good cleaning and stain removal.
COLOUREDS
For coloured items you should use a detergent which is
designed to clean while maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain bleach and therefore helps
to preserve colours.
DELICATE ITEMS
When washing delicates such as woollens, you
should use a product which is specially designed to
care for fine fabrics. Dreft Automatic is suitable for
woollens and other delicates.
LAUNDRY BLEACH
For additional stain removal you may wish to use a
product such as Ace Gentle Bleach which is used in
addition to your chosen detergent. Ace is suitable for all
washable fabrics including silks, woollens and coloureds.
STAIN REMOVER
For heavily soiled garments to be washed with STAINAction, you should use stain removers such as VANISH
In-Wash, Ecover Stain Salt and GloWhite Booster.

Preparing the wash cycle
And in which form?
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they are also available
in different forms. Whether you chose a powder or liquid in traditional or
compact form is to own personal choice.
TRADITIONAL POWDERS
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do not sprinkle
powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS
Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of the detergent
drawer marked with the symbol
, start the machine immediately
upon placing the detergent in the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the specially designed dosing
device* which should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of
the machine drum.
COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also known) are available
in liquid or powder form, and generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most economical usage. Pour the
detergent directly into the dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the
detergent into the specially designed dosing device* which should be
placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer, please ensure the dosing
device/ball is removed before carrying out a drying programme.
FABRIC CONDITIONERS
These are ideal for improving “softness”, and also reduce static cling on
easy-cares and make ironing easier. They are available in two types:
• For example Lenor liquid fabric softener, for use in the
washing machine/washer dryer. The liquid fabric softener should be poured into the compartment marked
with the symbol . Follow the manufacturer’s dosage
instructions and never exceed the MAX level.
• Bounce conditioning sheets for use in a tumble dryer.
We recommend the conditioning sheets are pinned
(using a safety pin) to an article of laundry and placed
in the tumble dryer.
23
Preparing the drying cycle
As a dryer, the machine works on the condensation principle.
Therefore, the water tap must be open and the drain hose must
drain water into a sink or into the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.
Load

max. load
(dry weight)
Linen and cottons
2.25 kg
Easy-cares

Warning:
Loads of washed laundry exceeding these values must be divided
before being dried, otherwise poor results will be obtained.
Garments not suitable for drying
• Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains, woollen and silk,
garments with metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as
anoraks, bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not be
machine dried.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials similar to foamrubber must not be machine dried; they represent a fire hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions or hair sprays, nail
solvents or similar solutions must not be machine dried in order to
avoid the formation of harmful vapours.
24
Preparing the drying cycle
Drying symbols on garment labels
Always look at the garment label to check whether garments can be
machine dried.
The following symbols refer to drying:
Machine drying is usually possible
Normal drying (normal temperature)
Gentle drying (reduced temperature)
Do not machine dry
Garments marked with the symbol
should not be machine dried.
Duration of the drying cycle
The drying time can vary according to
• the final spin speed;
• the required degree of drying (extra dry, only for cottons, store dry or
iron dry);
• the type of laundry;
• the size of load.
The usual drying times are indicated in the programme chart. As you
become more familiar with the appliance, you will discover the drying
times that best suit your needs according to the various type of fabric.
It is a good idea to make a note of these times.
Modification of the drying time
If you wish to modify the drying time when a drying programme is running,
first depress START/PAUSE button to set the machine to PAUSE. After modifying the time, depress START/PAUSE again to continue the programme.
Fibre residue
After drying fluffy fabrics, such as new towels, it is advisable to perform
a gentle rinse to be sure that any residue that may remain in the tub is
completely removed and does not stick to garments dried afterwards.
After each drying cycle the filter should be checked and cleaned.
25
Preparing the drying cycle
Additional drying
Should the laundry still be too wet at the end of the programme, set
another short drying cycle.
Warning! To prevent the formation of creases or shrinking of fabrics, avoid excessive drying.
Automatic washing and drying (NON-STOP programme)
The NON-STOP programme can be used with
• cottons, linen
• easy-cares
It cannot be used for delicate fabrics and woollens.
Warning: the maximum load sizes for NON-STOP operation - washing
plus drying - are as follows:
- cottons and linen
max 2.25 kg
- easy-cares
max 1.5 kg
The drying time and the wash programme must be selected at the same
time.
The selected drying time can be modified during the washing cycle, by
first setting the machine to PAUSE. After modifying the time, depress
START/PAUSE button again to continue the programme.

Cleaning and maintenance
After each wash
At the end of the wash programme, pull the dispenser drawer out a little to let it dry.
Leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate.
If the machine is not used for a prolonged period:
Close the water tap and unplug the appliance.
Periodical cleaning
Exterior
Clean the outside of the cabinet with soap and water only. Rinse with
clean water and dry.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products
to clean the cabinet.
Detergent dispenser drawer
After a while,
detergents and
fabric softeners
leave deposits in
the drawer.
Clean the drawer,
from time to
time, by rinsing it
under a running
tap. To remove the drawer from the machine, press the button in the
rear left-hand corner.
To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive compartment can be
removed.
Detergent can also accumulate inside the
drawer recess: clean it with an old toothbrush.
Refit the drawer after cleaning.
35
Cleaning and maintenance
Drain filter
The drain filter
collects threads
and small objects
inadvertently left
in the laundry.
Check regularly
that the filter is
clean.
Place a container
under the filter and unscrew it; some water will come out of the filter.
Pull out the filter.
Clean the filter under a running tap, then refit
it, screwing it fully in.
Water inlet filter
If you notice that the machine is taking
longer to fill, check that the filter in the
water inlet hose is not blocked.
Turn off the water tap.
Unscrew the hose from the tap and remove
the filter.
Clean it with a stiff brush.
Refit the filter and screw the hose back onto
the tap.
36
Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain hose are
clogged), proceed as follows to empty out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled;
• place a bowl on the floor;
• put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for
example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen
the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come
out slowly.
At the end screw the filter again.
Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop
below 0°C, proceed as follows:
• Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap.
• Place the end of the drain hose and the inlet hose in a bowl placed
on the floor.
• Select the “PUMP OUT” programme and run it until the machine
stops.
• Turn the programme selector dial to RESET.
• Press the ON/OFF button to switch the machine off.
• Remove the plug from the power socket.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its
place.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding
the formation of ice and, consequently, damage to the appliance.
When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0°C.
37
Something not working?
If, during the spin cycle, the machine makes an unusual
whistling noise, different from the noise made by traditional washing machines, this is due to a new type of
motor.
If water is not visible in the drum, this is due to
the modern technology of new washing
machines that use less water than traditional
machines.
Troubleshooting
If a problem arises, you can try to solve it yourself following the
instructions below.
If you call out an engineer when one of the following problems arises,
or to repair a fault due to incorrect use, the call-out will be charged
even if requested within the guarantee period.
During machine operation the following alarm codes may be displayed:
- E00: problem with the water supply
- E10: problem with water draining
- E20: door open
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button
to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem persists, contact your local AEG Service Force Centre.

Something not working?
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
The unbalance detection
device that prevents
excessive vibration during
spinning has cut in.
If the laundry is not evenly
distributed inside the drum
at the beginning of the
spin cycle, the machine
detects this and tries to
redistribute it more evenly
by means of a few drum
rotations.
Only when the laundry is
more evenly distributed
will the spin cycle be
performed, at a lower speed,
if the laundry is not evenly
distributed.
If, after about 15 minutes,
the laundry is still tangled,
the machine will not spin.
Therefore, if the laundry is
still wet at the end of the
cycle, it is advisable to
redistribute it manually
inside the drum and to
select the spin programme

Unsatisfactory washing results
If the laundry looks grey and lime scale is found in the drum
• Too little detergent has been used.
• An unsuitable detergent has been used.
• Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.
• The programme/temperature has not been correctly selected.
If grey stains remain on the laundry
• Laundry stained with ointments, grease or oil has been washed with
an insufficient amount of detergent.
• The temperature selected for the wash programme was too low.
• Fabric softener - especially the concentrated type - has come into
direct contact with the laundry. Wash these stains immediately and
pour fabric softener carefully.
Foam is still visible even after the last rinse
• Modern detergents often produce foam, even in the last rinse. However the laundry has been completely rinsed.
White residue is left on the laundry
• This is due to insoluble components in modern detergents and is
therefore not the result of insufficient rinsing. Shake or brush the
laundry. In future, it may be better to turn garments inside out before
washing them. Check the choice of detergent; try using liquid detergents.

containing the instruction booklet.
You are advised to keep all transit devices so that they can be refitted if the
machine ever has to be transported again.
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not impeded by
carpets, rugs etc.
• Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.
• Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of
wood, cardboard or similar materials under the machine.
• If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas
cooker or coal-burning stove, an insulating panel (85x57 cm) covered
with aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be
inserted between the two appliances;
• The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature
can drop below 0.
• The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.
• Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.

Recommendations regarding the construction and fitting of
a base when the installation requires an integrated appliance
to be raised
Where the appliance has been raised by mounting onto a wooden base provided by the installer. The material used to construct the base should have
a non slip surface, be water repellent and if possible be one solid piece.
If it is not possible to

With the appliance installed adjust all four feet ensuring the machine
is stable, and a clearance of approximately 5 mm is left between the
top of the machine and the underside of the worktop.
A final check for stability should be carried out with the machine on
spin with a load, this will identify the need for any further fine adjustment to the feet.
A strip of beading approximately 605 mm W, x 5 mm H, x 25 mm D
must be screwed down into the base directly in front of the machine’s
feet, this will provide additional security.
If required an additional door magnet, part number 1242394-00/3 and
disc, part number 1242393-00/5 are available from spare parts.
