Problem
Possible cause/Solution
The machine does not
empty and/or does not
spin:
The drain hose is squashed or kinked.
• Check the drain hose connection.
The drain filter is clogged.
• Clean the drain filter.
You have set an option or a programme that ends with
the water still in the tub or a that eliminates all the
spinning phases.
• Set the draining or the spinning programme.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
There is water on the
floor:
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates
too much foam) has been used.
• Reduce the detergent quantity or use another one.
Check whether there are any leaks from one of the inlet hose fittings. It is not always easy to see this as the
water runs down the hose; check to see if it is damp.
• Check the water inlet hose connection.
The drain or the inlet hose is damaged.
• Replace it with a new one.
The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not
been replaced or the filter has not been properly
screwed in after cleaning action.
• Refit the cap on the emergency emptying hose or
screw the filter fully in.
Unsatisfactory washing
results:
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been
used.
• Increase the detergent quantity or use another one.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.
• Use commercial products to treat the stubborn
stains.
The correct temperature was not selected.
• Check if you have selected the correct temperature.
Excessive laundry load.
• Reduce the laundry load.

is noisy:
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
Spinning starts late or
the machine does not
spin:
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in
because the laundry is not evenly distributed in the
drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse rotation
of the drum. This may happen several times before
the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume. If, after some minutes, the laundry is still not
evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not
spin.
• The laundry load is perhaps to little, add more
items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning programme.
The machine makes an
unusual noise:
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which
makes an unusual noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures a softer start
and more even distribution of the laundry in the drum
when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in
the drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate very
economically using very little water without affecting
performance.
The display shows the
alarm code
:
Anti-flooding system has activated.
• Pull out the plug from the power socket, close the
water tap and contact the Service Force Centre.

A
WATER DRAINAGE
There are different procedures to connect
the drain hose:
ENGLISH
31
With the plastic hose guide.
• On the edge of a sink.
• Make sure that the plastic guide cannot
move when the appliance drains. Attach the guide to the water tap or the
wall.
• To a stand pipe with vent-hole.
Refer to the illustration. Directly into a
drain pipe at a height of not less than
60 cm (23.6”) and not more than 100 cm
(39.3”). The end of the drain hose must
always be ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of the drainpipe (min. 38 mm —
min. 1.5”) must be larger than the external diameter of the drain hose.
• If the end of the drain hose is this (see
the drawing), you can push it directly into the stand pipe.
32 www.aeg.com
Without the plastic hose guide.
• To a sink spigot.
Refer to the illustration. Put the drain
hose in the spigot and tighten it with a
clip. Make sure that the drain hose
makes a loop to prevent that remaining
particles go in the appliance from the
sink.
• Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the
room wall and tighten it with a clip.
You can extend the drain hose to
maximum 400 cm. Contact the
service centre for the other drain
hose and the extension.
IN THE INTEREST OF THE ENVIRONMENT
• Connect the appliance to the FOUL system for the drain water. The sewage
works keeps the drain water for the
treatment before to release safely it into a river. Do not connect this appliance
to the surface drain system of the water
because it releases the drain water directly into a river or stream without a
treatment and this can cause of pollution. Contact your local water authority
to have more information.
