Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the ma-chine 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.

Main features of your washer-dryer
• Programme and temperature setting using the programme selector.
• Stain option for effectively treating stained washing.
• Energy saving programme for normally soiled cotton items.
• SOAK programme for heavy soiled items. The machine performs a soak at
30°C. By pressing the DELAY START button the soak time can be prolonged
up to 10 hours max. This programme cannot be used with WOOL programme. The Soak programme ends with water in the tub. Before selecting
the desired washing programme, drain the water setting the drain programme.
• 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 START (delayed start): programme start can be delayed by
30 minutes to 23 hours (e.g. to times with a more economical power
rate).

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.

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.

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 InWash, 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 your 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 easycares 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.

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

(dry weight)
Linen and cottons

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 foam-rubber
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.

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
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 the
rinse cycle 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.

material of the device will not withstand the high temperature during drying. Pour the liquid detergent directly into the main wash compartment.
Switch the machine on by depressing the ON/OFF button.
Select the wash programme.
Select the required options by means of the relevant buttons. If possible, do
not select a spin speed lower than that proposed by the appliance to avoid a
too long drying time so saving energy.
When automatically washing and drying it is not possible to select a spin
speed lower than 900 r.p.m. for cottons and 700 r.p.m. for synthetics.
Select the drying time.
Start the programme by depressing the START/PAUSE button.
At the end of the programme, turn the selector dial to RESET and press the
ON/OFF button again to switch the machine off.

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
Maintenance Wash
With the use of low temperature washes it is possible to get a build up of
residues inside the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance wash be performed on a regular basis.
To run a maintenance wash:
The drum should be empty of laundry.
Select the hottest cotton wash programme.
Use a normal measure of detergent, must be a powder (such as Ariel Futur).
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.

Cleaning and maintenance
To remove the drawer from the machine, press the button in the rear lefthand 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.
Door seal
Regularly check to see, if there are deposits or
foreign objects in the rubber seal behind the
door and remove them.
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.

Cleaning and maintenance
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. To do this, depress the small yellow button
on the hose.
Clean the filter with a stiff brush.
Screw the hose back onto the tap.
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 “DRAIN” 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.

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:
- E10: problem with the water supply
- E20: problem with water draining
- E40: door open
At the same time the light END flashes.
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/ELECTROLUX 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 6 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
again.

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.

Set the hose correctly
by loosening the ring
nut. After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten the ring nut again to
prevent leaks.
Do not connect to a hot water supply.
The inlet hose is provided with a water stop device,
which protects against damage caused by water
leaks in the hose which could develop due to natural ageing of the hose. This fault is shown by a red
sector in the window “A”. Should this occur, turn
the water tap off and refer to your Service Force
A
Centre to replace the hose.

with the letter «L» or coloured red.
The plug moulded on to the lead incorporates a fuse. For replacement, use a
13 Amp BS1362 fuse. Only ASTA or BSI approved fuses should be used.
The plug must not be used if the fuse cover/carrier is lost. The cover/carrier is
indicated by the coloured insert at the base of the plug.
A replacement cover/carrier must be obtained from your local AEG/ELECTROLUX Service Centre.
Permanent connection
In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply (mains), with
a minimum gap of 3 mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable
for the required load in compliance with the current electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any point.
This operation should only be performed by a qualified electrician.

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

use one solid piece, due
Additional pieces of

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.
