Environmental tips

To save water and energy, and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these tips.

• Do not use a pre-wash for normally soiled washing.

• It is more economical to wash full loads.

When washing small loads, reduce the detergent by half to two thirds.

Pre-treat stains, and then wash at a lower temperature.

• Use the energy-saving programme when washing light to normally soiled garments.

• In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce the amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturers recommendations.

Operating Instructions

Before the first wash

0 Run a washing cycle without washing (COTTONS 95, with half the amount of detergent).

This removes any residues from the drum 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.

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".

Operating Instructions

Detergent and Conditioners

Which detergent and conditioners?

Only use detergents and conditioners that are suitable for use in washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Quantities of detergent and conditioners?

The quantity to be used will depend on:

• degree of soiling of the washing

• degree of hardness of the water supply

• load

2

If the manufacturer does not indicate the amounts to use for smaller loads, for half-loads use a third less than the amount recommended for a full load, and for smaller loads and EASY IRON use half the amount recommended for a full load.

Please follow the detergent and conditioner manufacturers’ instructions for use and dosing recommendations.

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.

Operating Instructions

If the washing results are not satisfactory

If the washing turns greyish and limescale deposits are present in the drum

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.

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.

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.

Permanent connection

In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a 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 should only be performed by a qualified electrician.
