• If the appliance is delivered in the winter months and temperatures are below freezing: Store the washing machine at room temperature for a few hours before putting it into operation.

Intended Use

• The washing machine is only intended for washing normal domestic washing. If the appliance is used for any other purpose or incorrectly operated, the manufacturer accepts no liability for any damages which may result.

• It is dangerous to alter the specifications or attempt to modify this product in any way.

• Only use detergents which are suitable for automatic washing machines, and follow the recommendations of the detergent manufacturer.

• Garments which have been in contact with flammable solvents should not be washed. Also bear this in mind when washing precleaned washing.

• Do not use the washing machine for dry-cleaning.

• Dyes and bleaching agents may only be used if specifically permitted by the manufacturer of these products. We cannot be held liable for any damages.

• This appliance must be connected to the cold water supply only.

• Damage due to frost is not covered by the guarantee. If the washing machine is located in a room in which below freezing temperatures may occur, emergency emptying must be carried out (see "carrying out an emergency emptying“).

Operating Instructions

Child Safety

• Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for children. There is a risk of suffocation! Keep all packaging well away from children.

• This appliance is designed to be operated by adults. Do not allow children to tamper with the controls or play with the appliance.

• Pets and children have been known to climb into washing machines.

Please check the drum before use.

• When disposing of the appliance, cut off the mains cable, and destroy the plug. Disable the door lock to prevent young children being trapped inside.

General Safety

• Repairs to the washing machine must only be carried out by qualified personnel. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local AEG Service

Force Centre.

• Never operate the washing machine if the mains cable is damaged or the control panel, work top or base area are damaged allowing internal components to be accessible.

• Switch off the appliance and isolate from the mains supply before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance work.

• Do not use the mains cable to pull the plug out of the socket.

• Adapters and extension cables must not be used. There is a danger

of overheating!

Disposal

Packaging

Dispose of the packaging material correctly. All packaging materials used are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of without any danger to the environment.

• Plastic parts can be recycled and are identified as follows:

>PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags in the interior.

>PS< for polystyrene, e.g. padding (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.

When disposing of the washing machine!

Cut off the mains cable and destroy the plug. Disable the door catch to prevent young children becoming trapped inside. Use an authorised disposal site.

2

Environmental tips

• It is not usually necessary to Pre-wash or Soak normally soiled washing. This will save you detergent, water and time (and protect the environment as well).

• It is more economical to wash full loads.

• When washing small loads, use half to two thirds the recommended quantity of detergent.

• Pre-treat stains, if necessary, and then wash at a lower temperature.

• It can be possible to wash without fabric softeners, if clothes are dried in a tumble dryer, as this can give soft and fluffy results.

• In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce the amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturer’s recommendations.

To amend programme settings selected by mistake, turn the programme selector to OFF. This restores the original settings.

COTTONS/LINEN, EASY-CARES

Wash programme from 20 °C to 95 °C, generally used for all Cottons/

Coloureds (cotton/linen), Easy-Cares (mixed fibres, for example cotton/ polyester) and synthetics. The programme is suitable for different fabrics and loads. Once a temperature has been set, the machine will automatically select a COTTONS/LINEN or EASY-CARES programme as appropriate. If there are Easy-Cares only, do not exceed the load weight of 2.5 kg, to avoid excessive creasing.

Operating Instructions

STARCHING

Separate starching, separate conditioning, separate treatment of damp clothes (1 rinse, liquid conditioner is washed in from the

æ compartment, spin).

This can also be selected if a separate rinse is necessary. In this case, you do not need to add anything to the compartment.

DRAIN

To drain the water after a rinse hold (without spinning).

3

The effect of Rinse Hold is that the washing is left to soak in the last rinse water; it is not spun.

SPIN

Draining the water after a Rinse Hold and Spin, or separate spinning of hand-washed Cottons/Coloureds and Easy-Cares.

SHORT SPIN

Draining the water after a Rinse Hold and Short Spin, or separate Short

Spin of delicate fabrics (delicates, woollens) at low spin speed.

DELICATES

Wash programme for Delicates at 30 °C or 40 °C.

WOOL /

P (Handwash)

Wash programme (cold, up to 40 °C) for machine-washable wool and hand-washable wool items carrying the

ï care symbol. (Handwash).

SILK /

P (Handwash)

Wash programme at 30 °C for hand and machine-washable silk.

3

Since silk is a very delicate material, we recommend washing only one item at a time (if possible), and never washing together with other, rougher fabrics. An even more gentle treatment can be selected for extremely delicate silk items, using the TIME SAVER button.

FASHION

A special care programme at 40 °C, for modern textiles such as Viscose,

Modal, Cupro, Lyocell, providing gentler handling than the DELICATES programme, and a stronger cleaning action than the Handwash programme.

REFRESH

A special programme of approx. 20 minutes at

a maximum temperature of 30 °C for quick washing of items such as sports wear, which have been worn once and are only slightly soiled.

11

Operating Instructions

EASY IRON

Wash programme at 40 °C for easy-care items which, after this programme, are to be ironed only lightly or not at all.

2

ENERGY SAVING

Special energy and water saving programme at about 60 °C, for lightly to normally soiled Cottons/Coloureds (cotton/linen), with extended wash time.

Programme option buttons

The programme option buttons are used to adapt the programme to suit the degree of soiling of the wash. The additional PRE-WASH and STAIN options are not needed for normally soiled washing.

The different functions can be combined together, depending on the programme.

PRE-WASH (Pre-wash/Soaking)

Cold pre-wash before the main wash, which follows automatically. The DELAY TIMER button is used to switch from Pre-wash to warm Soaking.

SENSITIVE

Special extra programme function that gives an extra rinse along with better fabric care (less drum movement). This is ideal when frequent washes are necessary, for example in cases of sensitive skin. RINSE+ can still be selected as well.

STAIN

For heavily soiled or stained washing. (In-wash stain treatment products (salts or tablets) are washed in at the optimum time as the programme progresses.)

3

With the WOOL/

P (Handwash) setting, the programme option buttons cannot be used.

The multi-display indicates the estimated duration, in minutes, of the programme.

These timings are estimates and can vary.

During the programme countdown, the remaining time can be recalculated due to any of the following: incoming water temperature, type and quantity of laundry, out of balance spin detection and foam detection.

Operating Instructions

What does "UPDATE" mean?

The control system of your washing machine is fully electronic. The software which determines this control system can be reprogrammed.

If a further improvement to washing technology is introduced by AEG, then your machine can be updated. The cost of the UPDATE will be advised at the time of the request.

For further information regarding this, please contact the AEG Customer Care Department.

Anti-flood Aqua Control + Aqua Alarm

The inlet hose has a mechanical built in safety device. In the event of the filling hose failing, the safety device will automatically shut off the water supply.

In the event of a leak within the machine the float switch, which is mounted in the base of the appliance, will operate the drain pump and an audible signal will be heard

The system will operate as long as the appliance is connected to the mains electricity supply, even if the programme selector is in the off position.

15

Operating Instructions

16

0 Run a washing programme without laundry (selecting COTTONS/LINEN,

EASY-CARES 95, with half the normal amount of detergent).

This removes any residues from the drum which may have been left during manufacturing.

Preparing for a wash cycle

Sorting and preparing the washing

• Sort the washing according to care symbols (see Section "Types of washing and care symbols").

• Empty out the pockets.

• Remove metal objects (such as paper clips, safety pins, etc.).

• To avoid damage and tangling: close zips, button pillow-cases and duvet covers, tie together loose tapes and strings (for example on aprons).

• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside out (sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.).

• Knitted coloured fabrics such as woollens and other materials with decorations or jewellry should also be turned inside out.

• Wash small, delicate items (such as baby's socks, tights, bras, etc.) in a washing net, cushion cover with a zip or in large socks.

• Special care must be taken with net curtains. Remove metal or plastic rollers liable to snag or tie the curtains up in a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for any damage.

• Coloured and white washing should not be washed together in the same cycle. Otherwise, whites can discolour or turn grey.

• New coloured garments often have excess dye. It is better to wash these items separately for the first time.

• Mix large items with smaller ones. This gives more effective washing and distributes items better during the spin cycle.

• Shake out the washing before loading it into the washing machine.

• Separate items from one another before placing in the drum.

• Pay attention to care advice such as "Wash separately" or "Wash separately several times"!

Operating Instructions

Types of washing and care symbols

Care symbols help you to choose the correct wash programme.

Washing should be sorted by type and according to care symbols.

The temperatures indicated on the care symbols are the maximum wash temperatures.

Cottons

ç

Cotton and linen items with this care symbol are not sensitive to machine washing or high temperatures. The COTTONS/LINEN, EASY-CARES programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Coloureds

è ë

Cotton and linen items with this care symbol are not sensitive to machine washing. The COTTONS/LINEN, EASY-CARES programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Easy-Care washing

ê í

Materials such as fine cotton, cotton-blend fabrics and synthetics with these care symbols require a gentler machine wash. The COTTONS/

LINEN, EASY-CARES and EASY-IRON programmes are suitable for these types of washing.

Delicates

ì

Materials such as layered fibres, microfibres, synthetics and net curtains with this care symbol require careful handling. The DELICATES programme is suitable for this types of washing.

Viscose

í ì

Modern fabrics such as Viscose, Cupro, Lyocell, Modal, etc. need particularly careful handling. The FASHION programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Wool, silk and especially sensitive washing

9 ì ï

Fabrics like wool, wool blends and silk with these care symbols are particularly sensitive to machine washing. The WOOL/

P (Handwash) and

SILK/

P (Handwash) programmes are suitable for these types of fabrics.

Important! Materials with the care symbol

ñ (Do not wash) should not be washed in the washing machine.

Operating Instructions

Detergents and Conditioners

Which detergent and conditioner?

Use only detergents and conditioners which are suitable for use in automatic washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.

How much detergent and conditioner?

The required quantity depends upon:

• the extent of soiling of the washing

• the hardness class of the mains water

• the amount of washing

2

Should the detergent manufacturer not specify the dosage quantity for less than full loads, reduce the detergent accordingly: For a half load reduce the quantity by 1/3. For a small load or an EASY IRON programme reduce the quantity by 1/2.

Observe the instructions for use and dosing provided by the detergent and conditioner manufacturer.

Water softening

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.
