Safety instructions
The safety of AEG appliances complies with the industry standards and
with legal requirements on the safety of appliances. However, as manufacturers, we feel it is our duty to provide the following safety notes.
General safety
• Repairs to the machine must be carried out only by qualified personnel. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons could cause serious
danger. Contact your local AEG Service Centre.
• Never start the machine if the electrical supply cable is damaged or
the control panel or worktop are so damaged that inner components
can be reached.
• Unplug the appliance before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance operations.
• Never pull the power supply cable to remove the plug from the socket; always take hold of the plug itself.
• Never spray the machine with a jet of water. Danger of electric shock!
• During high temperature wash programmes and during the drying
cycle the door glass may get hot. Do not touch it!
• Let the water cool down before carrying out emergency emptying or
before opening the door in an emergency.
• Small animals can gnaw electric wires and water hoses causing electrocution hazard and damage due to water leaks.
Positioning, connection, starting up
• Follow the instructions for positioning and connection.
• Carry out a first wash without laundry (COTTONS 60, with half the
amount of detergent) in order to remove any manufacturing residue
from the tub and the drum.
• Should the machine be purchased in winter, when temperatures can
be below 0°, leave the appliance for 24 hours at ambient temperature
before starting it.

Safety instructions
Child safety
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous electrical appliances
can be. When the machine is working, children should be carefully
supervised and not be allowed to play with the appliance - there is a
risk that they could become trapped inside.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film, polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into the drum.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the electrical supply
cable and destroy the plug with the remaining cable. Disable the door
catch in order to prevent children from becoming trapped inside
while playing.
Proper use
• This appliance is designed for domestic use only. If the machine is
used for any other purposes or is not used correctly, the manufacturer accepts no responsibility for any damage that might occur.
• For safety reasons, the appliance must not be modified.
• Use only detergents suitable for washing machines and follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
• Garments which have been in contact with flammable solvents
should not be machine washed.
• Do not use your 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 responsible for any damage.
• Always unplug the appliance and turn off the water tap after use.

Disposal
Packaging materials
The materials marked with the symbol
are recyclable.
>PE<=polyethylene
>PS<=polystyrene
>PP<=polypropylene
This means that they can be recycled by disposing of them properly in
appropriate collection containers.
Machine
Use authorised disposal sites for your old appliance. Help to keep your
country tidy!
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.
• If the water has a medium or high degree of hardness (starting from
hardness degree II, see “Detergents and additives”) water softeners
must be added.
The amount of detergent can then be adjusted to hardness degree I (= soft).

Preparing the wash cycle
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 take no responsibility for any 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.

Detergents and additives
Which detergent and additive?
Use only detergents and additives for washing machines. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
How much detergent?
The quantity depends on:
• the load:
if the manufacturer does not provide any indications on the amount of
detergent for small loads, use about one third less than the suggested
amount for half loads and half the amount for very small loads;
• the degree of soil:
use a small amount of detergent for lightly soiled garments. Judge
the amount according to the detergent manufacturer’s instructions
and size of the load;
• the water hardness:
the harder the water, the more detergent required. Instructions
according to water hardness are given on the detergent pack.
Liquid detergent
Liquid detergent can be poured directly into the main wash compartment
of the dispenser drawer immediately before starting the programme, or
a special dispenser can be used that is placed directly in the drum. Measure the detergent according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Adding a water softener (descaling product)
A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree
of hardness (from degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to
degree of hardness I (= soft). Information on water hardness can be
obtained from your local water supply authority.

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 (store dry or iron dry);
• the type of laundry;
• the size of load.
The usual drying times for the timed programmes 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 or degree of drying
If you wish to modify the drying time or the degree of drying when a drying programme is running, first depress START/PAUSE button to set the
machine to PAUSE. After modifying the time or degree, 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 programme
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.

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:

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 10 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.

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.

Installation
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not impeded by
carpets, rugs etc.
• Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.
• Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of
wood, cardboard or similar materials under the machine.
• If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas
cooker or coal-burning stove, an insulating panel (85x57 cm) covered
with aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be
inserted between the two appliances;
• The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature
can drop below 0.
• The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.
• Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.
Levelling
Carefully level by screwing the adjustable
feet in or out. Never place cardboard, wood
or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the floor.
Water inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a separate
tap with a 3/4"
thread. Do not use
already employed
hoses for water
connecting.
The other end of
the inlet hose
A
which connects to
the machine can
be turned in any
direction. Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the hose and retighten the
fitting, making sure there are no water leaks.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too short and you do not
wish to move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially designed for this type of use.

(Nero/Process Black pellicola)
Installation
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 Centre to replace the hose.
Water drainage
The end of the drain hose can be positioned
in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink using the
plastic hose guide supplied with the
machine. In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the machine is
emptying.
This could be done by tying it to the tap with
a piece of string or attaching it to the wall.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch must be above the trap so that
the bend is at least 60 cm above the ground.
Directly into a
drain pipe at a
height of not less
than 60 cm and not
more than
90 cm.
The end of the drain hose must always be ventilated, i.e. the inside
diameter of the drain pipe must be larger than the outside diameter of
the drain hose.
The drain hose must not be kinked. Run it along the floor; only the part
near the drainage point must be raised.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase,
50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum
load required (2.2 kW), also taking into account any other appliances in
use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket.
The manufacturer does not accept any responsibility for damage or
injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution.

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 must be performed by a qualified electrician.
Important: The power supply cable must be easily accessible after
installing the machine.
