Safety instructions
The safety of AEG/ELECTROLUX 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/ELECTROLUX Service Force 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 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 90, 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!
The symbol
on the product or on its packaging indicates that this
product may not be treated as household waste. Instead it shall be handed
over to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and
electronic equipment. By ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you
will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and
human health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste
handling of this product. For more detailed information about recycling of
this product, please contact your local city office, your household waste
disposal service or the shop where you purchased the product.
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 programmes when washing normally soiled garments.
• The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded.
• When small loads are washed, use only half to two thirds of the recommended amount of detergent.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling can be
removed; the laundry can then be washed at a lower temperature.
48
132974420_gb.qxd

• 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).
Main features of your washing machine
• Programme and temperature setting using the programme selector.
• Stain option for effectively treating stained washing.
• Intensive option for heavy soiled laundry.
• Energy saving programmes (90E), (60E), (40E) for normally soiled
cotton items.
• Speed for the final spin can be reduced to 900, 700 or 500 rpm.
• RINSE HOLD: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to
prevent creasing.
• Delay Start: programme start can be delayed up to 23 hours (e.g. to
times with a more economical power rate).
• Programme progress display showing the programme steps selected
and the programme phase which is running.
• Because of its gentle washing action, the special wool cycle washes
your garments with extreme care.
• 4-compartment drawer for detergent, fabric softener and stainremover.
• Balance control device: to prevent vibration during spinning.
• The ECO valve allows total use of detergent and reduces water consumption so saving energy.

Before the first wash
Before your first wash, we recommend that you pour 2 litres of water
into the main wash compartment
of the detergent drawer in
order to activate the ECO valve.
Then, run a cotton cycle at 90°, without any laundry in the
machine, to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and
tub.
Pour 1/2 a measure of detergent into the dispenser drawer and start the
machine.
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.

Door seal
Check from time to time the door seal and
eliminate eventual possible objects that
could be trapped in the fold.
Drain pump
The pump should be inspected regularly and particularly if
the machine does not empty and/or spin
the machine makes an unusual noise during draining due to objects
such as safety pins, coins etc. blocking the pump.
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the appliance.
If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.
Open the pump door.
Place a container close to the
pump to collect any spillage.
Release the emergency emptying
hose, place it in the container
and remove its cap.
When no more water comes out,
unscrew the pump and remove
it. Always keep a rag nearby to
dry up spillage of water when
removing the pump.

Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to empty out the
machine:
pull out the plug from the power socket;
close the water tap;
if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down;
open the the pump door;
place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the emergency emptying hose
into the bowl. Remove its cap. The water should drain by gravity into the
bowl. Whe the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose. Empty the bowl.
Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out;
clean the pump if necessary as previously described;
replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after having plugged it;
screw the pump again and close the door.
Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below
0°C, proceed as follows:
Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap.
Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in
a bowl placed on the floor and let water drain out.
Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the emergency emptying
hose after having put the cap on again.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding ice
forming and consequently damage to the appliance.
When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature
is above 0°C.
Important!
Every time you drain the water through the emergency emptying hose
you must pour 2 litres of water into the main wash compartment of the
detergent drawer and then run the drain programme. This will activate
the ECO valve avoiding that part of the detergent remains unused at
next washing.

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 it is possible that
an acoustic warning signal sounds, the FIN (END) light blinks and the
following alarm codes may be displayed:
- E10: problem with the water supply
- E20: problem with water draining
- E40: door open
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button
to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem persists, contact your local AEG/ELECTROLUX Service Force Centre.

heating phase.
The unbalance detection
device that prevents
excessive vibration during
spinning has cut in.
Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin
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.

Something not working?
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.

Service
In the section “Something not working?” some problems that can be
solved by yourself are listed. Read this section in the event of problems.
If you are not able to find a solution, contact the Service centre.
In all cases, explain your problem carefully, in order to facilitate troubleshooting: the engineer will be able to decide whether a service call
is necessary.
Take note of the serial number (Ser.No.) and the product number (Prod.
No.) indicated on the rating plate.

Furthermore, try to specify, as precisely as possible:
- The symptoms of the fault
- When the fault occurs
- The alarm code displayed
When can a service visit be charged during the guarantee period?
- when it should have been possible to solve the problem by yourself,
with the help of the troubleshooting chart (see section “Something
not working?”)
- when the engineer has to come out several times because he has
not been given all the relevant information he needs and so, for
example, has to fetch spare parts. Repeated trips can be avoided if
you prepare your call to the Service centre as described above.
