Operating instructions

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

1 Safety

The safety standards of AEG electric appliances are in keeping with the recognised rules of technology and the law governing the safety of appliances. Nevertheless as a manufacturer we are committed to familiarise you with the following safety instructions:

Prior to initial start-up

Observe the "Installation and Connection Instructions" below in these user instructions.

If the appliance is delivered during the winter and temperatures are below freezing, allow the appliance to stand at room temperature for 24 hours before operation

Intended use

The washing machine is intended exclusively for the washing of normal household washing in the home. If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended, or if it is improperly operated, the manufacturer can assume no liability for damages which may occur.

Additions or modifications to the washing machine are strictly forbidden due to safety reasons.

Use only those detergents which are suitable for the washing machine. Observe instructions provided by the detergent manufacturer.

Laundry to be washed may not contain any flammable solvents. This must also be taken into consideration when washing pre-washedlaundry.

Do not use the washing machine for dry-cleaning.

Dyes and bleaches may only be used in the washing machine if such use has been expressly endorsed by the manufacturer of these products. We can assume no liability for damages which may occur.

Use tap water only. Rain water and industrial water may only be used if they fulfil requirements in accordance with DIN1986 and DIN1988.

Damage due to frost is not covered by the guarantee! If the washing machine is located in a room in which below freezing temperatures might occur, emergency draining must be carried out if danger of freezing occurs (see "Emergency Draining"). Furthermore, the inlet hose must be disconnected from the tap and laid on the floor.

Operating instructions

Safety of children

Packaging materials (e.g. sheet and Styrofoam) can be dangerous for children. Danger of asphyxiation! Keep packaging materials at a safe distance from children.

Children are often unable to recognise the dangers involved with electrical appliances. Provide for proper supervision during operation, and do not allow children to play with the washing machine – the danger exists that a child might lock itself into the appliance.

Make certain that children or small animals do not climb into the drum of the washing machine.

If the washing machine needs to be disposed of, remove the mains plug, destroy the door lock, cut off the electrical cable and dispose of the plug and remaining cable separately. In this way children are prevented from locking themselves in and are not exposed life threatening danger.

General safety

Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by trained personnel. Improper repairs can lead to extreme danger. If repairs are required, contact our customer service department or your authorised dealer.

Never place the washing machine into operation if the power cable is damaged or the control panel, the countertop or the base are damaged to such an extent that the inside of the machine is accessible.

Switch off the washing machine before cleaning, maintenance and servicing. In addition, pull out the mains plug or – in the case of permanent connection – pull the circuit breaker, or completely remove screw type fuses.

Never remove the mains plug by pulling on the cable. Always grip the plug.

Octopus plugs, couplings and extension cables may not be used. Danger of overheating!

Do not clean the washing machine with a jet stream of water. Danger of electrical shock!

When high temperature washing programs are selected, the glass in the fill-indoor becomes hot. Do not touch!

7

Operating instructions

Allow the wash-waterto cool before emergency draining of the appliance, cleaning of the circulation pump or emergency opening of the door.

Small animals may gnaw at electrical power cables and water hoses. Danger of electrical shock and water damage! Keep small animals away from the washing machine.

2 Disposal

Dispose of the packaging!

Dispose of washing machine packaging materials properly. All packaging materials are environmentally sound and can be safely disposed of, or burned in a refuse incineration plant.

The plastic parts can be reused:

The external plastic cover and the bags inside are made of polyethylene (marking >PE<).

The padding is made of CFC free expanded polystyrene (marking >PS<).

Corrugated components are made from recycled paper and should be disposed of at a paper recycling station.

Dispose of your old appliance!

If, at some point in time, the service life of the appliance has expired, please take it to your nearest recycling centre, or to your appliance dealer, who will accept the old appliance for a minimal fee.

2Environmental protection tips

No pre-washis required for normally soiled washing. This saves you detergent, water and time (and is good for the environment!).

If the indicated load capacities are taken full advantage of, the washing machine is especially efficient.

For small loads, use only one half to one third of the recommended detergent quantity.

Stains and soiling confined to given areas can be removed by means of appropriate pre-treatment.You can then wash at lower temperatures.

Wash lightly to medium soiled cottons with the energy saving program.

Softeners are often not required. Try it! If you use a dryer, your washing will be soft and fluffy, even without softeners.

A water softener should be used for water within a hardness range of mid to high (as of hardness level II, see "Detergents and Conditioners").

Detergent can then always be dosed for water hardness level I (= soft).
