Warnings

Follow the instructions for installation and electrical connection.

Before

– Do not connect the appliance if it is damaged (for example dur-

installing...

 

ing transport).

 

Any water found in the detergent dispenser drawer is there as a result of factory testing.

To remove any manufacturing residues from the drum and the tub, carry out a wash cycle without any laundry, with the machine set on the 60°C coloureds programme and with 1/2 a measure of detergent.

AEG household electrical appliances comply with general techni- Warnings cal safety manufacturing standards and with all safety regulations

on the use of electrical appliances. However, the manufacturer is obliged to bring the following safety points to the attention of the user:

Before using the appliance, make sure that the voltage and type of current indicated on its rating plate correspond to the mains voltage and type of current in the place where it is to be installed. The rating plate also gives details of the electrical protection required.

If the appliance is installed in a location which is not insulated against frost, the emergency emptying procedure (see “Emergency emptying”) should be used whenever there is any risk of the temperature dropping below zero.

Always disconnect the appliance before cleaning it or carrying out any maintenance. To be absolutely safe, check that the plug is removed from the socket or that the mains switch or safety circuit breaker are in the OFF position (see instructions for installation and electrical connection).

Avoid spraying the appliance with water.

Never remove the plug from the socket by pulling the cable; always take hold of the plug itself!

Never start the appliance if:

the power supply cable is damaged

there are obvious signs of damage in the control panel area, to the top or along the base.

Repairs must only be carried out by qualified persons. Inexperienced repairs can seriously endanger the user.

Always contact the Service Centre or an authorized dealer. Only genuine AEG spares comply with all standards!

115

Do not allow children to play with the appliance and keep pets well away from it.

For safety, when disposing of the appliance make sure that the door catch is inoperative and cut off the power supply cable.

The Manufacturer accepts no liability for damage caused by incorrect or improper use of the appliance for purposes for which it was not originally designed.

Never put your hands in the drum whilst it is still rotating.

Never touch the glass in the porthole door when the appliance is being used on a high-temperatureprogramme; the glass gets very hot and can cause burns.

There is a danger of scalding if the porthole door or filter cover are opened during operation.

The water drain hose must be properly fixed to avoid any risk of scalding or flooding.

In the event of a fault, close the mains water taps and disconnect the appliance from the power supply by pulling out the plug or switching the safety circuit breaker (or breakers) to the OFF position.

Keep packaging materials away from children, especially cellophane which is particularly dangerous.

If washing garments which have previously been dry cleaned, first make sure that any remaining inflammable solvents have completely evaporated.

If the appliance is to be connected to a rainwater or other similar source of water instead of the mains water supply, follow the Water Board regulations.

The Manufacturer accepts no responsibility for accidents resulting from failure to observe the above safety recommendations.

MADE

 

 

 

This new machine is part of AEG’s ÖKO-Systemrange, which

 

meets all requirements for modern handling of laundry with

 

reduced consumption of water, energy and detergent.

 

This is a rinsing and spinning process developed by AEG which

ensures the best washing results with reduced water consump-

 

tion.

 

The automatic metering device automatically regulates the amount

Preliminary softening of the water, achieved by means of a two-

You are advised to dispose of all cardboard packaging in special

 

paper collection containers so that it can be recycled.

Ecological suggestions for economical washing

For medium soiling, use programmes without prewash. This will save detergent and water.

Always wash full loads for maximum savings.

Use the “ENERGY SAVING” (Economy) programme for normally or lightly soiled cottons and coloureds.

For best results, even at low temperatures, remove individual stains from laundry before washing.

Use minimum amounts of detergent. Follow the instructions on the pack.

118

Installation instructions

All transit devices must be removed before installing and connecting the appliance.

Using a spanner, unscrew and remove the rear right-handbolt.
