Important Safety Information
1 Important Safety Information
The safety of AEG electrical appliances complies with the established
technical principles and statutory equipment safety regulations. Nevertheless, as manufacturer we have to draw your attention to the following safety instructions.
General safety
• Repairs of the dryer may be carried out only by trained personnel.
Incompetently carried out repairs can entail considerable hazards for
the user. Please get in touch with our customer service or with an
authorised AEG dealer when repair is necessary.
• Before commencing operation please make sure that the nominal voltage and type of supply specified on the type plate of the appliance correspond to the actual nominal voltage and supply type at the place of
utilisation. The fuse rating is also specified on the type plate.
• Never operate the dryer when the mains cable is damaged or when the
operator control mask, work plate or base shrouding are damaged such
that there is direct access to the interior of the appliance.
• Switch-off the dryer before carrying out any cleaning, care and maintenance tasks! You are quite safe if you disconnect the mains plug from
the power outlet or – if the electrical connection is permanent – if you
switch-off the circuit breaker in the fusebox or screw the fuse cartridge
right out of its holder.
• Never pull on the cable to disconnect the mains plug from the power
outlet. Always grasp and pull-out the plug.
• Don’t lean on the opened door; this could make the appliance fall over.
• Don’t use a water jet to spray-down the appliance. Danger of electric
shock!
• The covering hood for the filament lamp bulb for drum illumination
must be screwed-on.
• When closing the door, please check that the washing is not caught in
it.
• If you interrupt the drying process to take out laundry, bear in mind
that the laundry and the drum could be hot.
• Adaptors and extension cables must not be used. There is risk of fire
because of overheating!
5
Important Safety Information
Safety of children
• Children are often not aware of the dangers involved when handling
electrical equipment. Therefore provide the necessary supervision of
children when operating the appliance and do not let children play
with the dryer – there is a danger that children could become trapped
inside the appliance.
• Packaging parts (e.g. films, styropore) can be dangerous for children.
Danger of suffocation! Keep packaging parts out of reach of children.
• Make sure that children or small animals do not climb into the drum of
the dryer. For this purpose keep the door of the dryer closed when the
appliance is not in use.
Utilisation in accordance with the intended purpose
• Conversions or modifications of the dryer are forbidden for safety reasons.
• Use the dryer only to dry ordinary household laundry! The manufacturer accepts no liability for any damage resulting from incorrect operation or utilisation for an unintended purpose.
• Dry only laundry which has been washed in water. In particular, textiles
which have been treated with inflammable cleaning agents and solvents (petrol-ether, alcohol, stain remover and similar materials) must
not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire! Explosion hazard!
• Laundry items containing sponge rubber or rubber-like materials must
not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire!
• Washing that is in poor condition (heavily worn) and items with loose
fillings (cushions) that could break open must not be dried or refreshed.
There is a risk of fire!
• Washing with rigid components (foot mats) will cover the air slots; the
slots will also be covered if the drum is overfilled. Observe the maximum load of 5 kg. There is a risk of overheating which could cause a
fire!
• Only dry washing that does not contain any explosive objects (fire
lighters, spray cans). There is a risk of fire or an explosion!
• Clean the fluff filter after each drying procedure.
• Clean the condenser regularly.
• In the case of washer / dryer tower combinations, do not place any
objects on the dryer during use as they could drop down.
6
General Information
Installation and connection
• Check the dryer for Transportation damage. Never connect-up a damaged appliance! Contact your supplier if the appliance is damaged.
• If the tumble dryer has to be carried, first remove the plinth!
• Do not set-up the dryer in frost-endangered rooms!
• Set-up the dryer horizontal!
• If the dryer is placed adjacent to a gas, coal or electric cooking stove,
interpose a thermally insulating non-combustible plate between the
dryer and the stove (dimensions: 85x57,5cm).
• Do not place the dryer on high-pile carpet floors!
This would hinder air circulation at the ventilation slots!
• The electric power plug connector of the appliance must remain accessible even after erection.
• Check that the tumble dryer is not standing on the mains cable.
• The technical conditions of the electric power supply company for
making fixed connections of electrical appliances to the mains require
that such connections may only be made by an authorised electrician.
3 General Information
• Starched washing leaves traces of starch on the drum and therefore
should not be placed in the tumble dryer.
• If you exceed the maximum load stipulated in the program table your
washing is more likely to get creased! For very delicate fabrics you
should only fill in 1.5kg washing at the most.
• For your information: 70 per cent of fabric wear is caused by being
worn, 20 per cent by washing and only 10 per cent by being dried in a
tumble dryer. As the fabric is worn down, fluff gathers in the fluff filter. When using a tumble dryer, only approx. 0.03g fluff per kilogramme washing is produced.
7
Disposal
2 Disposal
Packaging
Dispose of the packaging material!
Dispose of the packaging material of your tumble dryer correctly. All
the packaging materials used are harmless to the environment and can
be recycled.
• Plastic parts are marked with standard international abbreviations:
– >PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. sheet wrapping material
– >PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. padding material (always CFC-free)
– >POM< for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clips
Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and should
be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling.
Disposal of the old appliance!
When you eventually stop using your tumble dryer please bring it to
the nearest recycling centre or to your dealer who will take it back for a
small fee.
1
8
Warning! When disposing of the tumble dryer, pull out the plug, cut
off the flex, dispose of the plug and remaining flex and destroy the
door lock. This hinders children from locking themselves in and endangering their lives.
The materials can be recycled in accordance with their markings. Standard tools (crosshead screwdriver, hammer) are sufficient to dismantle
the old appliance.
Environmental protection tips
2 Environmental protection tips
• Your laundry will become light and soft in the tumble dryer even without a fabric softening agent.
• Loosen your laundry before loading it into the dryer. This helps to prevent lengthy running times and creasing. Ensure your laundry is well
spun.
• Remove as much water as possible from the washing before drying!
This is based on the principle: the better you spin the washing before
drying the more economical the dryer is.
In the following table we give an overview of specific electric consumption data depending on the spinning speed. This information is
valid for 5kg laundry dried with the program COTTONS CUPBOARD DRY

Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the condenser
1
Important! When the CONDENSER (WARMTEWISSELAR) display lights,
it is essential to clean the condenser. Otherwise your dryer might suffer
damage. In addition energy consumption will be increased if the condenser unit is covered with fluff.
For information on cleaning the condenser see section "Cleaning and
maintenance, cleaning the condenser".
Cleaning the filter area
1
Important! A small amount of fluff may reach the area around the filter in spite of the fluff filter. Therefore you should clean the entire filter
area from time to time, or at least every three months.
0 Remove the fluff filter.
0 Hold the filter lid by the top and pull it
forwards until it is released from both
holders.
0 Remove the fluff from the entire filter area
– preferably with a vacuum cleaner.
0 Press both pins of the filter lid into the
holders on the door until they click in.
0 Reinsert the fluff filter.
0 Press against the filter lid until it clicks
into the lock.
25
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the drum
1 Warning! Do not clean the stainless steel drum with abrasive deter-
gents or steel wool!
Fabric softeners or lime in the water can cause a scarcely visible deposit
to form on the drum. The dryer is then no longer reliably able to
recognise how dry the washing is. When the washing is removed from
the dryer it will be damper than you expect.
0 Wipe the inside of the drum and the drum fins with white vinegar to
avoid a build up of residues/deposits effecting the sensors. This is particularly important if you regulary use fabric conditioning sheets or dry
starched items in the dryer.
Cleaning the panel and operating parts
1 Warning! Do not use household furniture polish or aggressive detergents.
0 Wipe over the panel and operating parts with a damp cloth.
Only use warm water.
Cleaning the door seal
0 Rub the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after the drying procedure.

Service
In the chapter "Something not working" some disturbances have been
summarised, which you can solve yourself. If you do not find any
helpful information there, please contact your local customer service
centre. It is nearby and if necessary can reach you quickly.
(Addresses and phone numbers can be found in the Warranty
Conditions/Service Departments)
Be well prepared before you phone. This facilitates the diagnosis and
the decision as to whether a customer service visit is necessary. With
our checklist you can gather important information before making
your call:
Make a note of the PNC number and the S number. They are both on
the rating plate behind your tumble dryer’s door.
PNC
................................
S-No ................................
If possible establish:
• How is the disturbance evident?
• Under what circumstances does the disturbance occur?
When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?
– if you could have solved the disturbance yourself with the help of the
Troubleshooting table (see section "Something not working"),
– if the customer service engineer has to make several journeys because
he did not receive all the necessary important information before his
visit and now e.g. has to fetch spares. You can avoid these extra trips
by preparing your telephone call properly in the way described above.
