WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
dry without hems or with cuts. Use
a washing bag to wash small and/or
delicate items (e.g. underwired bras,
belts, tights, etc. ).
5.1 The laundry load
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured, synthetics, delicates and
wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that
are on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and
coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend
that you wash them separately for
the first times.
• A very small load can cause balance problems with the spin phase.
If this occurs, adjust manually the
items in the tub and start the spin
phase again.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers, hooks and poppers. Tie up
belts.
5.2 Stubborn stains
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
We recommend that you pretreat
these stains before you put the items
in the appliance.
For some stains, water and detergent
is not sufficient.
Special stain removers are available.
Use the special stain remover that
is applicable to the type of stain and
fabric.
5.3 Detergents and additives
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.
• Pretreat hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent
heavy soil stains.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove the hooks or put the curtains
in a washing bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash in the appliance laun-
• Only use detergents and additives
specially made for washing machines:
– powder detergents for all types
of fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate
fabrics (40°C max) and woollens,
– liquid detergents, preferably for
low temperature wash proENGLISH
13
HINTS AND TIPS
grammes (60°C max) for all
types of fabric, or special for
woollens only.
• Do not mix different types of detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the correct quantity of
detergent.
• Obey the instructions that you find
on the on packaging of these products.
• Use the correct products for the
type and colour of the fabric, the
programme temperature and the
level of soil.
• If your appliance has not the detergent dispenser with the flap device,
add the liquid detergents with a dosing ball (supplied by the detergent’s
manufacturer).
5.4 Ecological hints
• Set a programme without the prewash phase to wash laundry with
normal soil.
• Always start a washing programme
with the maximum allowed load of
laundry.
• If necessary, use a stain remover
when you set a programme with a
low temperature.
• To use the correct quantity of the
detergent, refer to “Water Hardness”
(5.5).
14
www.aeg.com
5.5 Water hardness
If the water hardness in your area is
high or moderate, we recommend that
you use a water softener for washing
machines. In areas where the water
hardness is soft it is not necessary to
use a water softener.
To know the water hardness in your
area, contact your local water authority.
Use the correct quantity of the water
softener. Obey the instructions that
you find on the packaging of the product.
6. BEFORE FIRST USE
1. Make sure that all transit bolts are
removed.
2. Make sure that the electrical and
water connection are available.
3. Put a small quantity of detergent
in the compartment for washing
phase.
4. Set and start a programme for
cotton at the highest temperature
without laundry. This removes all
possible dirt from the drum and the
tub.

1) To reduce the creases of the laundry, this cycle regulates the water temperature and
performs a soft wash and spin phase. The appliance adds some rinses.
2) During this cycle the drum rotates slowly to ensure a gentle washing. It can seem that
the drum doesn’t rotate or doesn’t rotate properly. Consider this as a normal functioning
of the appliance.
3) The maximum spin speed is suitable with cottons items. Set the spin speed and make
sure that it agrees with the type of laundry. If you set a spin speed a 800 rpm or less,
the appliance performs a short spin. If you set No Spin option, only the drain phase is
available.
4) The maximum spin speed is suitable with cottons items. Set the spin speed and make
sure that it agrees with the type of laundry. If you set a spin speed a 800 rpm or less,
the appliance performs a short spin.
5) Set this programme to decrease the energy and water consumption maintaining a good
washing performance.
6) Standard programmes for the Energy Label consumption values. According to regu-
lation 1061/2010, these programmes are respectively the «Standard 60°C cotton

The water temperature of the washing phase may differ from the temperature
declared for the selected programme.
Steam programmes1)
Steam can be used for dried, washed
or worn once laundry. These programmes can reduce creases and
odours and make your laundry more
soft.
Do not use any detergent. If necessary, remove stains by washing or
using localized stain removal.
Steam programmes do not perform
any hygienic cycle.
Do not set a Steam programme with
these types of items:
• items where it is not specified on
the care label as being suitable for
tumble drying.
