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 our Service Centre or your AEG dealer.
• 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 washing machine with a jet of water. Danger of electrocution!
• 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 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 the dangers of electrical appliances.
When the machine is working, children should be carefully supervised
and not 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 - suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into the drum.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, pull the plug out of the socket, 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.
• Laundry must not have any trace of inflammable solvents; be particularly careful when washing items that have been previously dry
cleaned.
• 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.

Tips for environmental protection
To save water, energy and 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!).
• 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.
• Try not to use fabric softeners. If the laundry is machine dried, it will
remain soft even without using fabric softeners.
• 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
• Temperature regulated by selector knob.
• The spin phases can be suppressed in order to obtain a gentle washing for
extremely delicate items.
• The anti-crease function can be selected for synthetics, delicates and
woollens: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to avoid
creases forming.
• 3-compartment drawer for detergent and fabric softener.
• Unbalance detection device: secure position and silent operation of
the appliance.

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
In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce the
amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturers’ recommendations.
Information on water hardness can be obtained from your local water
supply authority.

Cleaning and maintenance
After each wash
At the end of the wash programme, pull the dispenser drawer out a little to let it dry.
Leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate.
If the machine is not used for a prolonged period:
Close the water tap and unplug the appliance.
Periodic cleaning
Bodywork
Clean the outside of the machine with warm water and a neutral, nonabrasive household detergent. Rinse with clean water and dry with a
soft cloth.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products
to clean the bodywork.

Cleaning and maintenance
Detergent can also accumulate inside the
drawer recess: clean it with an old toothbrush. Refit the drawer after cleaning.
Drain filter
The drain filter
collects threads
and small objects
inadvertently left
in the laundry.
Check regularly
that the filter is
clean.
Open the filter
door.
Place a container under the filter and unscrew it; some water will come
out of the filter.
Pull out the filter.
Clean the filter
under a running
tap, then refit it,
screwing it in
securely.
Water inlet filter
If you notice that the machine is taking
longer to fill, check that the filter in the

Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharging (pump is blocked, filter or drain hose are
clogged), proceed as follows to empty 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 come out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for
example the appliance is built into kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the
drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come out
slowly.
Finally screw in 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 that of the inlet hose in a bowl
on the floor.
• Select the draining programme and run it until the machine stops.
• Remove the plug from the 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 breakage of the affected parts.
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, it is due to
the modern technology of new washing
machines which 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 arise, or to repair a fault due to incorrect use, the call-out
will be charged even if requested within the guarantee period.

Something not working?
Problem
The door will not open
Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin
28
Possible cause
Solution
The programme is still
running.
Wait until the end of the
programme before opening
the door.
The door lock has not yet
released.
Wait about 2 minutes for
the door lock to release.
The “anticrease”
option has been selected.
Empty out water in order
to be able to open the
door.
The unbalance detection
device that prevents
excessive vibration during
spinning and ensures a
stable position 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,
the spin cycle will be
performed.
If, after about 5 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 or the temperature have 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
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not impeded by
carpets, rugs etc. Check that the machine does not touch the wall or
other kitchen units.
• The floor surface must be clean and dry, without any wax or polish
residue to avoid any possibility of sliding. Do not use sharp implements to move the appliance into place by sliding it across the floor.
• It is not advisable to place the machine on long-haired rugs or carpet
or on layers of foam-rubber as this will affect its stability.
• Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.
• If the appliance is positioned on flexible floors, especially wooden
beams with flexible floorboards, use a 15 mm thick, water resistant
panel of wood, screwed to at least two of the floor beams. If possible, position the machine in a corner of the room, where the beams
are more solidly fixed and tend to be more stable.
• Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of
wood, cardboard or similar materials under the machine.
• If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas
cooker or coal-burning stove, an insulating panel (85x57 cm) covered
with aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be
inserted between the two appliances;
• The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature
can drop below 0°C.
• The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.
• Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.
Levelling
Carefully level by screwing the adjustable
feet in or out. Never place cardboard, wood
or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the
floor.

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:
1. 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.
2. 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.
36
124973710 AEG LAV 60 gb.qxd

Installation
3. 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.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase,
50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum
load required (2.2 kW), also take into account any other appliances in
use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket.
The manufacturer does not accept any responsibility for damage or
injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution.
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 must be performed by a qualified electrician.
