Cleaning the filter
When the appliance is in use and
depending on the programme
selected there can be hot water in the
filler. Never remove the filter during a
wash cycle, always wait until the
appliance has finished the cycle, and
is empty. When replacing the filter,
ensure it is securely retightened. This
will prevent leaks and also stop
young children being able to remove
the filter.
The water inlet filters
If your water is very hard or contains
traces of lime deposit, the water inlet
filters may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean
them from time to time.
Turn off the water taps. Unscrew the
water inlet hoses.
Remove and clean the filters using a
hard bristle brush.
Replace the filters and tighten up the
inlet hoses.
Installation instructions
Slide out the 3 plastic pins and stop

Your new AEG washing machine has
been designed to be permanently
plumbed in to your home's water
supply and drainage system. How-
ever, If this is not possible, it may be
connected to suitable existing taps,

plumbing of the existing installation,
a variety of connectors are available
from good hardware stores and
plumbers merchants to suit most
domestic plumbing. Any alterations to
your existing plumbing must be
carried out by a competent person, or
qualified plumber.
The inlets on the back of the
appliance are colour coded, blue for
cold, red for hot.
Before connecting the hoses be sure
to fit the mesh filters supplied as per
pou )
If only a cold water supply is
avallable, connect the two hoses to a
cold water outlet by means of a «Y»
connection piece.
Installation should comply with local
water authority and building
regulations” requirements.
The appliance must be given a
separate cold water supply and not
be connected to a mixer tap, a single
outiet water heater or a booster
pump. A minimum water pressure of
7 psi is required for safe operation of
the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water
connection direct from the rising
mains, you may be abie to operate
the appliance from your cold water
storage system.
Installation instructions
Cleaning the filter
There should be a minimum distance
of 5.02 m (16% ft) between the
appliance's inlet and the bottom of
the tank.
There will be sufficient pressure for
the hot water supply from the hot
water cylinder if the height between
the appliance’s inlet and the bottom
of the cold water storage cistern (not
between the appliance and hot water
cylinder) is at least 2.74 m (9 ft).
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.
If you intend the drain hose from the
machine to empty into a sink, make
sure the sink is empty and that the
plug hole is not blocked.
If the machine is permanently
plumbed in, hook the end of the hose
into a standpipe installed for the
The standpipe must have an internal
diameter of at least 30 mm (1 % in),
in order that there is an air gap
between the drain hose and
-standpipe. Make sure, that it is
designed in such a way, that the end
of the drain hose cannot be covered
with water.
The water drain filter
A ciean filter is important for correct
functioning of the machine, and
should therefore be cleaned after
every wash. |

Important: Before connecting up the
machine to new pipework or to
pipework that has not been used for
some time, run off a reasonable
amount of water to flush out any
debris that may have collected in the
pipes. - |
Whether discharging into a sink or a
standpipe check that the end of the
drain hose is neither too high nor too -
low. The top of the curve in the
hose’s end should be no more than
90 cm (35.4%) and no less than 60 cm
(23.67) above floor level.

Place a container underneath to
catch any spillage.
Unscrew the fiiter.
If the filter is blocked and the
machine is unable to drain you will
need to drain the water from the
machine at this stage.
To do this, unhook the drain hose
from the standpipe or sink and hold
the end of the hose over a bowl on
the floor. The water should drain by
gravity into the bowl. When the bowl
is full, hook the hose back up and
empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure
until the water stops flowing out.

This control aliows you to choose the
desired drying time according to the
type and quantity of the load to be
dried. It can also be adjusted whilst
the machine is in operation to either
increase or reduce the drying time.
The control incorporates two drying

duration. The high temperature range
for cotton and linen items is marked
with a solid line, and the low
temperature range for synthetic
fabrics with a hollow line.
Heavy soil button
By pressing the heavy soil button, the
machine will take in cold water only
on programmes with a water
temperature of 60°C and hotter.
These would normally be hot and
cold, or hot fill only.
The water is then gradually heated to
the required temperature.
The effect is to improve the overall
wash performance, particularly on
biological stains such as egg, blood
and grass stains, and heavily soiled
fabrics, since the longer «cool-soak»
phase as the water heats up provides
the right conditions for the powder
and the water temperature to interact,
and achieve the best possible results.

The washing programmes
This washing machine has a wide
range of programmes for optimum
washing of all types of fabrics.
The differences between the
programmes are the rotation rhythm
of the drum, the washing
temperature, the water level, use or
not of the spin cycle etc.
The dryer part of this machine is a
Turbo Condenser Dryer. |
During the drying cycle the machine
uses a small amount of water.
The clothes are dried by means of a
continuous flow of hot air which as it
passes through the drum, gradually
reduces the moisture in the laundry.
The moisture is then condensed
within the machine. The condensed
water is then drained away, together
with the cooling water, through the
drain hose. There is no need to
provide special ventilation in the
room in which the machine is
The duration of the preset drying time
may be shortened or extended during
the drying cycle. Do not extend or
shorten the drying period within the
8-0 minute cycle. During this time
both the machine and the faundry are
cooling off.
During a power failure it is advisabie
to remove the laundry from the
machine. After a short mains power
failure the machine will continue with
the selected programme once the
power is restored.

— the appliance is plugged in
— the water taps are on
— the drain hose is correctly
Then push the ON/OFF- button D .
The pilot light will come on and the
machine will start.
At the end of the programme
The machine automatically stops.
The door is controlled by a safety

Push the ON/OFF-button again
and the pilot light will go out.
When the programme has finished
you are advised to unplug the
appliance and turn off the water taps.
How and when to use the controls
The washer-dryer operates on the
condensation principle. For this
reason, when drying takes place, the
water tap must be open and the drain
hose must be hooked over the sink if
the machine is not permanently
plumbed In. The dispenser drawer
must be fully closed.
Only laundry washed in water should
be dried in this machine. In particular, |
the following fabrics should not be
loaded into the machine:
Clothes which were dry-cleaned or
cleaned with chemicai solvents;
Woollens or mixed woollens which
will shrink with heat;
Extremely delicate fabrics such as
silk and delicate synthetics;
Sponge, rubber and similar items;
Fibre glass items;
Fabrics tending to fray.
Wash ‘n’ dry
It is possible to programme the
machine to run automaticalty from
the wash programme through to the
drying programme without pausing. In
this case, the wash load must be no
more than 2.25kg (5 |b) for cottons
and a maximum of 1.5kg (2.2 Ib) for
synthetics. The drying time should be
selected at the beginning of the wash
programme. This is possible on all
programmes except the Wool, Silk
and Delicates (10-11-12-13-14
Drying times
The drying times of all fabrics will
depend on the extent to which they
have been spun as well as the fabric
characteristics. The higher the spin
speed the shorter the drying time.
To alleviate creasing, care should be
taken not to overdry clothes. All
clothes should be removed from the
drum as quickly as possible after
completion of a drying cycle.
Polycottons of tess than 70% cotton
should NOT be dried using «High
Temperature» drying.
Only polycottons with more than 70%
cotton content should be dried using
programme 6.
If you are not sure of the cotton
content use «Low Temperature»

Use of detergent and additives
Choosing the right washing
powder |
Always use a low lather powder. This
is important as too much lather
prevents the articles from being
properly cleansed and you may
damage the machine.
Use of washing powder
The washing powder should be
placed in the appropriate
compartments in the washing powder
dispenser drawer before starting the

The compartment marked with the
symbol {Il} is for the main wash
How much detergent?
Your washing machine has a unique
water circulation system which runs
continuously. This means that it uses
detergent sparingly.
Initially you are advised to use less
than the quantity specified by the
detergent manufacturer.
Subsequently it is worth
experimenting to see if your laundry
comes out clean with smaller
Powder residue left on the clothes at
the end of a wash indicates the use
of too much powder. If the drum is
only half-full, you can obviously use
less detergent.
Use of detergent, and additives
Use of liquid detergent
Suitable liquid detergent can be used
instead of washing powder.
In this case a programme without
prewash must be selected.
Pour the liquid detergent into the
compartment in the dispenser
drawer immediately before starting
the programme.
If the detergent has its own dispenser
ball, this should be used according to
the manufacturer's instructions.
Use of liquid additives
Any liquid additives for softening or
starching the laundry must be poured
into the appropriate compartment of
the washing powder dispenser drawer
before starting the programme.
The compartment marked with the
symbol 63 is for softeners or
starching agents.
Concentrated additives MUST be
diluted before pouring in the
