What does "update" mean?
The control system of your machine is fully electronic. The software
which determines this control system can be reprogrammed. If a state
of the art in washing technology is reached, your machine can be
updated.
The cost of the update will be advised at the time of the request. For
further information regarding this please contact the AEG Customer
Care Department.
12
Operating Instructions
Before Using for the First Time
0 1. Pull the detergent dispenser drawer a short distance out of the control
panel.
2. Pour about 1 litre of water through the detergent dispenser drawer
into the washing machine. When this has been done, done the ÖKO
lock can function correctly.
3. Run a washing cycle without washing (COTTONS 95, with half the
amount of washing powder).
This removes any residues from the drum which may have been left
during manufacture.
Preparing a Wash Load
Sorting and preparing a wash load
• Sort washing according to care symbol and type (see "Washing types
and care symbols").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent bunching up of washing and damage to washing,
close zippers, button up duvets and pillow cases, and tie up loose
straps such as from aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• Coloured, knitted fabrics, as well as wool and textiles with appliqués
should be turned inside out.
• Place small and delicate articles (socks, tights, bras, etc.) into a washing net or a pillow case.
• Handle curtains with care. Remove metal strips or plastic hooks.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. White washing
will otherwise turn grey.
• New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these
items separately the first time.
• Mix small and large articles of washing! This improves washing efficiency, and the washing is more favourably distributed during the
spin cycle.
13
Operating Instructions
• Shake out washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Observe tips such as "wash separately" and "wash separately several
times"!
Washing Types and Care Symbols
Care symbols assist in the selection of the correct washing program.
Washing should be sorted according to type and care symbol. The temperatures indicated in the care symbols are maximum temperatures.
Cottons ç
Textiles made from cotton and linen with this care symbol will withstand maximum wash actions and high temperatures.
The COTTONS/LINEN program is appropriate for this type of washing.
Linen è ë
Textiles made from cotton and linen with these care symbols will withstand maxiumum wash actions and high temperatures.
The COTTONS/LINEN program is appropriate for this type of washing.
Easy-care washing ê í î
Fabrics such as treated cottons, cotton mixtures and synthetics with
this care symbol need a softer washing action.
The EASY-CARES program is suitable for this type of washing.
Delicates ì
Fabrics such as those with layered fibres, micro-fibres, as well as synthetics and net curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful
handling. The DELICATES program is suitable for this type of washing.
Wool and particularly delicate washing 9 ì ï
Textiles such as wool, wool mixtures and silk with these care symbols
require a very gentle wash cycle. The WOOLLENS/P (Hand washing)
program is appropriate for this type of washing.
Important! Fabrics with this care symbol ñ (Do Not Wash!) must not
be washed in the washing machine!
Detergents and Conditioners
Only use detergents and fabric softeners suitable for automatic
washing machine use. As a general rule follow the instructions of the
detergent manufacturers.
14
Operating Instructions
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 lower 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 wool,
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 coloureds.
15
Operating Instructions
And in which form?
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they are also available in different forms. Whether you choose a powder or liquid in
traditional or compact form, is down to personal choice.
Traditional Powders
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do not sprinkle
powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
Liquids
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.
Compact
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/ball in a washer dryer, please ensure the
device/ball is removed before carrying out a drying programme.
Fabric Conditioners
These are ideal for improving „softness“, and also reduce static cling on
synthetics 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 w. 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.
16
Operating Instructions
How much Detergent and Fabric Softener?
The amount to be used depends on
• the load:
If the detergent manufacturer does not make any specifications for
small loads, use a third less for half loads, and for very small loads
only use half of the amount of washing powder recommended for a
full load.
• the soiling:
For only lightly soiled washing use less washing powder. Follow the
instructions of the detergent manufacturer and load.
• the water hardness:
The harder the water, the higher the dosage! You will find the quantities to use according to water hardness on the detergent packet.
Using a Water Softening Agent
In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce the
amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturers recommendations.

Operating Instructions
If the Washing Results are not Satisfactory
If the washing turns greyish and limescale deposits are present in
the drum
• Insufficient washing powder has been added.
• Incorrect washing powder was used.
• Stains were not pretreated.
• Program or temperature was not set correctly.
• When using modular washing powders the individual components
were not used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey stains on the washing
• Washing soiled with ointments, grease or oils was washed with insufficient washing powder.
• The temperature selected for the wash was too low.
• A frequent cause is that fabric softener especially a concentrated one
has come into contact with the washing. Wash out these types of
stains as fast as possible and use the fabric softener carefully.
If after the final rinse foam is still visible
• Modern washing powders can still cause foam in the final rinse cycle.
The washing is nevertheless sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white residues on the washing
• These are insoluble contents of modern washing powders. They are
not the result of an insufficient rinse.
Shake out the washing or brush it off. Turn the washing inside out
before washing it. Review your choice of powder, possibly use liquid
detergents.

Installation on a Suspended Floor
Suspended wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration. To
help prevent vibration we recommend you place a waterproof wood
panel, at least 15 mm thick under the appliance, secured to at least 2
floor beams with screws. If possible install the appliance in one of the
corners of the room, where the floor is more stable.
Levelling the Appliance
Self adjusting foot: The back right foot of your washing machine is
designed like a spring leg. This makes the machine very stable even at
high spin speeds.
If the washing machine is not stable proceed as follows:
0 1. Set the three adjustable feet to length of 10 mm. Use the supplied
spanner.
If the self adjusting foot does not reach to the floor:
2. Manually extend the self adjusting foot to the required length.
3. Check the appliance is level using a spirit level.
Important! Never use strips or shims of wood or cardboard etc. to
compensate for any uneveness in the floor. Always use the adjustable
feet.

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.
38mm (11/2“)
diameter standpipe
Min 30 cm (12“)
When discharging into a standpipe 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.
Max 90 cm (35,4“)
Min 60 cm (23,6“)
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.
If you intend the drain hose
from the washing machine to
empty into a sink, make sure
that the sink is empty and the
plug hose is not blocked. Use
the plastic “U-Piece“ supplied.
