Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the
wash cycle, because it is not evenly distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute
the wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed "Something Not Working".

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 programme when washing normally soiled garments.
• The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded (for both
washing and drying cycles).
• When small loads are washed, use only half to two thirds of the recommended amount of detergent.
• The machine will consume less energy if the laundry is adequately
spun before being dried.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling can be
removed; the laundry can then be washed at a lower temperature.

• RINSE HOLD: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to
prevent creasing.
• Delay timer: programme start can be delayed by 1 to 19 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.
• The drying programmes will enable you to have dry and soft laundry in a short time.
• 3-compartment drawer for detergent and fabric softener.

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 decline any responsibility in case of
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?....
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your appliance, it is
important to use the right detergent in your everyday wash, and only
detergents recommended for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and household textiles and
to make them last longer you should use different types of detergent
for different washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.
WHITES
We recommend the Ariel product range which is
biological and designed to provide excellent cleaning and stain removal even at low temperatures.
NON BIOLOGICAL
If you prefer to use a non biological detergent, which
does not contain enzymes we recommend Fairy. Fairy
provides good cleaning and stain removal.
COLOUREDS
For coloured items you should use a detergent which is
designed to clean while maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain bleach and therefore helps
to preserve colours.
DELICATE ITEMS
When washing delicates such as woollens, you
should use a product which is specially designed to
care for fine fabrics. Dreft Automatic is suitable for
woollens and other delicates.
LAUNDRY BLEACH
For additional stain removal you may wish to use a
product such as Ace Gentle Bleach which is used in
addition to your chosen detergent. Ace is suitable for all
washable fabrics including silks, woollens and coloureds.
STAIN REMOVER
For heavily soiled garments to be washed with STAINAction, you should use stain removers such as VANISH
In-Wash, Ecover Stain Salt and GloWhite Booster.

Preparing the wash cycle
And in which form?
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they are also available
in different forms. Whether you chose a powder or liquid in traditional or
compact form is your own personal choice.
TRADITIONAL POWDERS
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do not sprinkle
powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS
Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of the detergent
drawer marked with the symbol
, start the machine immediately
upon placing the detergent in the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the specially designed dosing
device* which should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of
the machine drum.
COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also known) are available
in liquid or powder form, and generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most economical usage. Pour the
detergent directly into the dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the
detergent into the specially designed dosing device* which should be
placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer, please ensure the dosing
device/ball is removed before carrying out a drying programme.
FABRIC CONDITIONERS
These are ideal for improving “softness”, and also reduce static cling on
easy-cares and make ironing easier. They are available in two types:
• For example Lenor liquid fabric softener, for use in the
washing machine/washer dryer. The liquid fabric
softener should be poured into the compartment
marked with the symbol . Follow the manufacturer’s dosage instructions and never exceed the MAX
level.
• Bounce conditioning sheets for use in a tumble dryer. We recommend the conditioning sheets are
pinned (using a safety pin) to an article of laundry
and placed in the tumble dryer.

Preparing the drying cycle
As a dryer, the machine works on the condensation principle.
Therefore, the water tap must be open and the drain hose must
drain water into a sink or into the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.

Garments not suitable for drying
• Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains, woollen and silk,
garments with metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as
anoraks, bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not be
machine dried.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials similar to foamrubber must not be machine dried; they represent a fire hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions or hair sprays, nail
solvents or similar solutions must not be machine dried in order to
avoid the formation of harmful vapours.

Drying symbols on garment labels
Always look at the garment label to check whether garments can be
machine dried.
The following symbols refer to drying:
Machine drying is usually possible
Normal drying (normal temperature)
Gentle drying (reduced temperature)
Do not machine dry
Duration of the drying cycle
The drying time can vary according to
• the final spin speed;
• the required degree of drying (store dry or iron dry);
• the type of laundry;
• the size of load.
The usual drying times for the timed programmes are indicated in the
programme chart. As you become more familiar with the appliance, you
will discover the drying times that best suit your needs according to the
various type of fabric. It is a good idea to make a note of these times.
Modification of the drying time or degree of drying
If you wish to modify the drying time or the degree of drying when a drying programme is running, first depress START/PAUSE button to set the
machine to PAUSE. After modifying the time or degree, depress
START/PAUSE again to continue the programme.
Fibre residue
After drying fluffy fabrics, such as new towels, it is advisable to perform
the RINSE programme to be sure that any residue that may remain in
the tub is completely removed and does not stick to garments dried
afterwards.
After each drying cycle the filter should be checked and cleaned.
Additional drying
Should the laundry still be too wet at the end of the programme, set
another short drying time.
Warning! To prevent the formation of creases or shrinking of fabrics, avoid excessive drying.

Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain pipe are
clogged), 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;
• place a bowl on the floor;
• put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for
example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen
the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come
out slowly.
At the end screw the filter again.
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 drain hose and the inlet hose in a bowl placed
on the floor.
• Select the “DRAIN” programme and run it until the machine stops.
• Turn the programme selector dial to O (RESET).
• Remove the plug from the power socket.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its
place.
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.

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 the following alarm codes may be displayed:
- E10: problem with the water supply (phase light EXTRA RINSE is on)
- E20: problem with water draining (phase light RINSES is on)
- E40: door open (phase light WASH is on)
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 Service Force Centre.
If the alarm code EFO (water leakage) appears on the display, contact the Service Force Centre.

Problem
Possible cause
Solution
The unbalance detection
device that prevents
excessive vibration during
spinning has cut in.
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 15 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.

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.

Installation
The inlet hose is provided with a water stop
device, which protects against damage
caused by water leaks in the hose which
could develop due to natural ageing of the
hose. This fault is shown by a red sector in
the window “A”. Should this occur, turn the
water tap off and refer to your Service Force
Centre to replace the hose.

Water drainage
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.
If you intend the drain hose from the machine
to empty into a sink, make sure that the sink
is empty and the plug hole is not blocked. Use
the plastic “U -Piece” supplied.
Min. 30 cm.(12")
Min.60 cm.(23.6")
Max. 90 cm.(35.4")
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.
When discharging into a stand3 pin
pipe 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.
