Safety instructions

The safety of AEG/ELECTROLUX 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/ELECTROLUX Service Force Centre.

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 machine with a jet of water. Danger of electric shock!

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 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.

Disposal

Packaging materials

The materials marked with the symbol are recyclable.>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!

The symbol on the product or on its packaging indicates that this product may not be treated as household waste. Instead it shall be handed over to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment. By ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling of this product. For more detailed information about recycling of this product, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or the shop where you purchased the product.

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.

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.

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

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 800, 700 or 500 rpm for model 1046 EL, and to 900, 700 or 500 rpm for model 1246 EL.

RINSE HOLD: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to prevent creasing.

Delay timer: programme start can be delayed up to 23 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.

3-compartment drawer for detergent and fabric softener.

Unbalance detection device: to prevent vibration during spinning.

The ECO valve allows total use of detergent and reduces water consumption so saving energy.
