Safety instructions
The safety of AEG 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 Service Force Centre.
• Never start the machine if the electrical supply cable is damaged or
the control panel is 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 and during the drying
cycle 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 60, 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.

>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!
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.
• 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 washer-dryer
• Programme and temperature setting using the programme selector.
• Stain programme for effectively treating stained washing.
• Energy saving programme 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 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.
• 4-compartment drawer for detergent, fabric softener and bleaching
agent.
• Unbalance detection device: to prevent vibration during spinning.

the spin cycle required for the type of wash selected;
• select the PUMP OUT programme D to empty out the water without
spinning.
Warning! The programme selector dial must be turned first to RESET O
and then to programme “PUMP OUT” D.
This option can also be selected for the wool programme: the last
rinse water is emptied out but the machine does not spin.
If the water is not emptied out, the machine automatically empties
itself after 18 hours.
The RINSE HOLD option cannot be selected for the automatic WASHING &
DRYING programme.
SPIN SPEED
Press this button to reduce the maximum speed of the final speed proposed
by the machine for the selected programme.

Cancelling a programme
To cancel a programme which is running, turn the programme selector
dial to the RESET O position: three flashing dashes will be displayed.
Warning! After a programme which ends with water in the drum
(RINSE HOLD
option), turn the selector dial first to RESET O and
then to the PUMP OUT programme D.
Altering a programme which is running
To alter a programme, first set the machine to PAUSE by pressing the
START/PAUSE button .
Before the machine starts the heating phase, i.e. within the first 15
minutes for cotton programmes, 10 minutes for synthetic and delicate
programmes and 5 minutes for the wool programme, the selected wash
cycle can be modified.
Warning! If the programme selector dial is turned first to RESET O and
then to the new programme, the programme which is running is cancelled, the water is emptied out and the machine re-starts from water
filling. To simply modify the programme which is running, turn the programme selector dial to the desired position (avoiding the RESET position):
when the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the machine restarts with
the newly selected programme from the point at which it was interrupted.
Opening the door after the programme has started
The door can only be opened before the machine starts the heating
phase (within the first 15, 10 or 5 minutes, depending on the programme selected - see paragraph above) and during the rinse phase.
Set the machine to PAUSE (by pressing the START/PAUSE button).
If the door does not open, this means that the machine is already heating, or that the water level is above the bottom edge of the door.
This prevents water from spilling out when the door is opened.

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.

The labels on garments help you to select the most suitable wash programme. The laundry should be sorted out according to the type of fabric and the instructions indicated on care labels.
Temperatures indicated on labels are always maximum temperatures.
Cotton 95
Linen and cottons marked with this symbol can be washed at high temperatures.
Cotton 60
Linen and cottons marked with this symbol are colourfast and can be
washed at 60°C.
Cotton 40 30
Garments marked with these symbols have delicate colours, therefore
the washing temperature must not exceed these values.
Synthetics 40 60
Mixed and synthetic fabrics marked with these symbols require a gentle
wash programme and they must therefore be washed using the specific
programme.

Preparing the wash cycle
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.

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
Garments marked with the symbol
should not be machine dried.
Duration of the drying cycle
The drying time can vary according to
• the final spin speed;
• the required degree of drying (extra dry, only for cottons, store dry or
iron dry);
• the type of laundry;
• the size of load.
The usual drying times 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
If you wish to modify the drying time when a drying programme is running,
first depress START/PAUSE button to set the machine to PAUSE. After modifying the time, depress START/PAUSE again to continue the programme.
Fibre residue
After drying fluffy fabrics, such as new towels, it is advisable to perform
a gentle rinse (progr. B) 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 cycle.
Warning! To prevent the formation of creases or shrinking of fabrics, avoid excessive drying.
Automatic washing and drying (NON-STOP programme)
The NON-STOP programme can be used with
• cottons, linen
• synthetics
It cannot be used for delicate fabrics and woollens.
Warning: the maximum load sizes for NON-STOP operation - washing
plus drying - are as follows:
- cottons and linen

Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain hose 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 “PUMP OUT” programme D and run it until the machine
stops.
• Turn the programme selector dial to RESET O.
• Press the ON/OFF button
to switch the machine off.
• 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

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
again.

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
Water inlet
Connect the
water inlet hose
to a separate tap
with a 3/4"
thread after havA
ing inserted the
small filter “A”
supplied with the
machine.
The other end of
the inlet hose which connects to the machine can be turned in any
direction. Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the hose and retighten the
fitting, making sure there are no water leaks.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too short and you do not
wish to move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially designed for this type of use.
Water drainage
The end of the drain hose can be positioned
in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink using the
plastic hose guide supplied with the
machine. In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the machine
is emptying.
This could be done by tying it to the tap
with a piece of string or attaching it to the wall.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch must be above the trap so that
the bend is at least 60 cm above the ground.
Directly into a
drain pipe at a
height of not less
than 60 cm and
not more than
90 cm.
The end of the
drain hose must always be ventilated, i.e. the inside diameter of the
drain pipe must be larger than the outside diameter of the drain hose.
The drain hose must not be kinked. Run it along the floor; only the part
near the drainage point must be raised.
