Environmental tips
To save water and energy, and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these tips.
• Do not use a pre-wash for normally soiled washing.
• It is more economical to wash full loads.
• When washing small loads, reduce the detergent by half to two
thirds.
• Pre-treat stains, and then wash at a lower temperature.
• Use the energy-saving programme when washing light to normally
soiled garments.
• In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce
the amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturers recommendations.

the washing. Additional programmes are not necessary for washing that is soiled to a normal degree.
Various functions can be combined depending on
the programme.
PRE WASH
Cold pre wash before the main wash cycle which
follows automatically; with intermediate spinning
for COTTONS/LINEN and EASY-CARE, without intermediate spinning for DELICATES.
SOAKING
Approx. 1 hour at 30 °C or 40 °C, according to the programme set. Can
be increased to a maximum of 19 hours using the DELAY TIMER button.

further information regarding this please contact the AEG Customer
Care Department.
Before the first wash
0
14
Run a washing cycle without washing (COTTONS 95, with half the
amount of detergent).
This removes any residues from the drum which may have been left
during manufacturing.
Operating Instructions
Preparing a Wash Load
Sorting and preparing a wash load
• Sort washing according to the care symbol and type (see "Washing
types and care symbols").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent bunching up of washing and damage to washing,
close zippers, button up duvet covers and pillow cases, and tie up
loose straps such as from aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• Coloured, knitted fabrics, as well as wool and fabrics with appliqués
should be turned inside out.
• Place small and delicate items (e.g. socks, tights and stockings, bras
etc.) in a washing net, or pillow case.
• Handle curtains with care. Metal rollers or burred, plastic rollers must
be removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for
damage.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. This could discolour white washing or turn it grey.
• New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these separately the first time.
• Mix small and large items of washing. This improves washing efficiency and the washing is more evenly distributed during the spinning cycle.
• Shake out washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Observe tips such as "wash separately“ and "wash separately several
times".

Operating Instructions
Detergent and Conditioners
Which detergent and conditioners?
Only use detergents and conditioners that are suitable for use in washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Quantities of detergent and conditioners?
The quantity to be used will depend on:
• degree of soiling of the washing
• degree of hardness of the water supply
• load
2
If the manufacturer does not indicate the amounts to use for smaller
loads, for half-loads use a third less than the amount recommended for
a full load, and for smaller loads and EASY IRON use half the amount
recommended for a full load.
Please follow the detergent and conditioner manufacturers’ instructions for use and dosing recommendations.
Water softening
For medium to high water hardness (hardness class II upwards) a water
softening agent can be used. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent (underdosing)
for hardness class I (soft). Your local Water Authority can advise you on
the hardness of the water in your area.

Operating Instructions
If the washing results are not satisfactory
If the washing turns greyish and limescale deposits are present in
the drum
• Insufficient detergent has been added.
• Incorrect detergent was used.
• Stains were not pre-treated.
• Programme or temperature was not set correctly.
• If using modular detergents, the individual components were not
used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey stains on the washing
• Soiled garments with ointments, grease or oils were washed with insufficient detergent.
• The temperature selected for the wash was too low.
• A frequent cause is that fabric softener - particularly a concentrated
one - has come into contact with the washing. Wash out these types
of stains as soon as possible and use the fabric softener carefully.
If after the last rinse foam is still visible
• Modern detergents can still cause foam in the final rinse cycle. However, the washing is still sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white residues on the washing
• These are insoluble contents of modern detergents. They are not the
result of an insufficient rinse. Shake out the washing or brush it off.
Turn the washing inside out before washing it. Review your choice of
detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.

Water Drainage
The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe, the hook in the
drain hose is formed using the plastic “U-Piece“ supplied. The standpipe
should have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm (see diagram) thus ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose and
standpipe.
Important! It is essential to lay
the drainage hose without kinks.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top of the
curve in the hose end is no more
than 90 cm (35.4’’) and no less
than 60 cm (23.6’’) above floor
level.
The upright standpipe should
have a minimum, length of
30 cm (12’’) from the bottom of
the elbow to the top of the pipe
(see diagram). Make sure that it is
designed in such a way that the
end of the drain hose cannot be
covered with water.
Longer drain hoses are available
in lengths of 2.7 and 4 metres
from your AEG Service Force
Centre.

Installation and connection instructions
If you intend the drain hose from
the washing machine to empty
into a sink, make sure that the
sink is empty and the plug hose
is not blocked. Use the plastic
“U-Piece“ supplied.
Important! The end of the
drainage hose must not be
submerged in the pumped-out
water. Otherwise, the water
could be sucked back into the appliance.
