10.1 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.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.
• Remove 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 :
– Laundry without hems or with cuts
– Underwired bras.
– Use a washing bag to wash small
items.

• 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.
10.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove these
stains before you put the items in the
appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use
the special stain remover that is applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
10.3 Detergents and additives

13.4 Water drainage
There are different procedures to connect the drain hose:
With the plastic hose guide.
ENGLISH
31
• 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.
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.
32 www.aeg.com

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.
13.5 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.
