1) Note: The selected programme is tested in accordance with EN 60 456. The
consumption values, however, can deviate depending on the following: water
pressure, water hardness, water inlet temperature, room temperature, washing
type and quantity, the detergent used, fluctuations in the mains voltage and the
selected programme options.
What does UPDATE mean?
The control system of your machine is fully electronic. The software
which determines this control system can be reprogrammed. If a further improvement to washing technology is introduced by AEG then
your machine can be updated.
The cost of the update will be advised at the time of the request. For
further information regarding this please contact the AEG Customer
Care Department.
13
Operating Instructions
Before the First Wash
0 1. Pull the detergent dispenser drawer out slightly.
2. Pour about 1 litre of water through the detergent dispenser drawer
into the washing machine. The next time a programme is started the
solution container will be closed and the ECO valve can function
correctly.
3. Carry out a washing cycle without any washing laundry (COTTONS 95,
using half the usual quantity of washing detergent). This removes any
residues from the drum and solution container which may have been
left during manufacturing.
Preparing a Wash Load
Sorting and preparing a wash load
• Sort washing according to the care symbol and type (see "Washing
types and care symbols").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent bunching up of washing and damage to washing,
close zippers, button up duvet covers and pillow cases, and tie up
loose straps such as from aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• Coloured, knitted fabrics, as well as wool and fabrics with appliqués
should be turned inside out.
• Place small and delicate items (e.g. socks, tights and stockings, bras
etc.) in a washing net, or pillow case.
• Handle curtains with care. Metal rollers or burred, plastic rollers must
be removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for
damage.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. This could discolour white washing or turn it grey.
• New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these separately the first time.
14
Operating Instructions
• Mix small and large items of washing. This improves washing efficiency and the washing is more evenly distributed during the spinning cycle.
• Shake out washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Observe tips such as "wash separately“ and "wash separately several
times".
Washing Types and Care Symbols
The care symbols help you chose the correct washing programme.
Washing should be sorted according to type and care symbol. The temperatures indicated in the care symbols are the maximum temperatures.
Cottons ç
Fabrics made from cotton and linen with this care symbol will withstand maximum wash actions and high temperatures. The COTTONS /
LINEN programme is appropriate for this type of washing.
Linen è ë
Fabrics made of cotton and linen which carry this care symbol will
withstand maximum wash actions. The COTTONS / LINEN programme is
appropriate for this type of washing.
Easy-cares ê í
Fabrics such as treated cotton, cotton mixed fabrics, viscose and synthetics which carry this care symbol need a softer wash action. The
EASY CARES / EASY IRON programme is appropriate for this type of
washing.
Delicates ì
Fabrics such as those with layered fibres, micro fibres, viscose, synthetics,
as well as curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful
handling. The DELICATES programme is appropriate for this type of
washing.
Wool and particularly sensitive washing 9 ì ï
Fabrics such as wool, wool mixtures and silk with this care symbol require a very gentle wash cycle. The WOOL /P (hand wash) programme
is suitable for this type of washing.
Important! Fabrics with this care symbol ñ (do not wash!) must not
be washed in washing machines.
15
Operating Instructions
Detergents and Conditioners
Which detergent and conditioner?
Use only detergents and conditioners which are suitable for use in automatic washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
How much detergent and conditioner?
The required quantity depends upon:
• the extent of soiling of the washing
• the hardness class of the mains water
• the amount of washing
2
Should the detergent manufacturer not specify the dosage quantity for
less than full loads, reduce the detergent accordingly: For a half load
reduce the quantity by 1/3. For a small load or an EASY IRON programme reduce the quantity by 1/2.
Observe the instructions for use and dosing provided by the detergent
and conditioner manufacturer.
Water softening
For medium to high water hardness (hardness class II upwards) a water
softening agent can be used. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent (underdosing)
for hardness class I (soft). Your local Water Authority can advise you on
the hardness of the water in your area.

• Insufficient detergent has been added.
• Incorrect detergent was used.
• Stains were not pre-treated.
• Programme or temperature was not set correctly.
• If using modular detergents, the individual components were not
used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey stains on the washing
• Soiled garments with ointments, grease or oils were washed with insufficient detergent.
• The temperature selected for the wash was too low.
• A frequent cause is that fabric softener - particularly a concentrated
one - has come into contact with the washing. Wash out these types
of stains as soon as possible and use the fabric softener carefully.
If after the last rinse foam is still visible
• Modern detergents can still cause foam in the final rinse cycle. However, the washing is still sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white residues on the washing
• These are insoluble contents of modern detergents. They are not the
result of an insufficient rinse. Shake out the washing or brush it off.
Turn the washing inside out before washing it. Review your choice of
detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.

The washing machine is provided with safety devices preventing backcontamination of the water supply and complies with local water authority requirements.
This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed into your home’s
water supply.
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.
Important!
– Appliances for connecting to cold water must not be connected to
hot water.
– Only use new hose sets for the connection.
Water pressure
The appliance is designed to operate within the following water
pressure units. Minimum 1 bar (= 10N/cm2 = 0.1 Mpa), maximum
10 bar (= 100N/cm2 = 1 Mpa).
• If more than 10 bar: Install a pressure-reduction valve upstream
• If less than 1 bar: Unscrew the inlet hose from the appliance at the
inlet solenoid valve and remove the flow regulator (to do this, remove
the filter with needle nose pliers and remove the rubber washer behind the filter). Replace the filter.

Installation and connection instructions
Water Drainage
The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe, the hook in the
drain hose is formed using the plastic “U-Piece“ supplied. The standpipe
should have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm (see diagram) thus ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose and
standpipe.
Important! It is essential to lay
the drainage hose without kinks.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top of the
curve in the hose end is no more
than 90 cm (35.4’’) and no less
than 60 cm (23.6’’) above floor
level.
The upright standpipe should
have a minimum, length of
30 cm (12’’) from the bottom of
the elbow to the top of the pipe
(see diagram). Make sure that it is
designed in such a way that the
end of the drain hose cannot be
covered with water.
Longer drain hoses are available
in lengths of 2.7 and 4 metres
from your AEG Service Force
Centre.
49
Installation and connection instructions
If you intend the drain hose from
the washing machine to empty
into a sink, make sure that the
sink is empty and the plug hose
is not blocked. Use the plastic
“U-Piece“ supplied.
Important! The end of the
drainage hose must not be
submerged in the pumped-out
water. Otherwise, the water
could be sucked back into the appliance.
Pump head of greater than 1m
Every washing machine includes a wash water pump for the removal of
wash and rinse water, which can pump fluids through the outlet hose
up to a height of 1m, measured from the surface on which the machine
stands.
For pump heads of greater than 1m please contact your local
AEG Service Force Centre.
