1 Safety

The safety features of AEG electrical appliances comply with accepted technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. However, we also consider it our obligation as a manufacturer to inform you about the following safety information.

Prior to initial start-up

Observe the "Installation and Connection Instructions"in this instruction book.

If the appliance is delivered in the winter months and temperatures are below freezing: Store the washing machine at room temperature for a few hours before putting it into operation.

Intended Use

The washing machine is only intended for washing normal domestic washing. If the appliance is used for any other purpose or incorrectly operated, the manufacturer accepts no liability for any damages which may result.

It is dangerous to alter the specifications or attempt to modify this product in any way.

Only use detergents which are suitable for automatic washing machines, and follow the recommendations of the detergent manufacturer.

Garments which have been in contact with flammable solvents should not be washed. Also bear this in mind when washing precleaned washing.

Do not use the washing 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 liable for any damages.

This appliance must be connected to the cold water supply only.

Damage due to frost is not covered by the guarantee. If the washing machine is located in a room in which below freezing temperatures may occur, emergency emptying must be carried out (see "carrying out an emergency emptying“).

Operating Instructions

Child Safety

Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for children. There is a risk of suffocation! Keep all packaging well away from children.

This appliance is designed to be operated by adults. Do not allow children to tamper with the controls or play with the appliance.

Pets and children have been known to climb into washing machines. Please check the drum before use.

When disposing of the appliance, cut off the mains cable, and destroy the plug. Disable the door lock to prevent young children being trapped inside.

General Safety

Repairs to the washing machine must only be carried out by qualified personnel. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local AEG Service Force Centre.

Never operate the washing machine if the mains cable is damaged or the control panel, work top or base area are damaged allowing internal components to be accessible.

Switch off the appliance and isolate from the mains supply before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance work.

Do not use the mains cable to pull the plug out of the socket.

Adapters and extension cables must not be used. There is a danger of overheating!

Do not clean the washing machine with a water jet. There is a danger of electrical shock!

During high temperature wash programmes, the glass of the door may become hot. Do not touch!

Allow the water to cool down before cleaning the drain pump, carrying out emergency emptying or opening the door in an emergency.

Small animals/pets can chew on power cables and water hoses. This can cause the danger of an electrical shock to the animal and water damage to the appliance and property. Keep small animals away from the appliance.

2 Disposal

Packaging

Dispose of the packaging material correctly. All packaging materials used are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of without any danger to the environment.

• Plastic parts can be recycled and are identified as follows:

>PE<

for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags in

the interior.

 

>PS<

for polystyrene, e.g. padding (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.

When disposing of the washing machine!

Cut off the mains cable and destroy the plug. Disable the door catch to prevent young children becoming trapped inside. Use an authorised disposal site.

2 Environmental tips

To save water and energy, and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these tips.

Do not use a pre-washfor normally soiled washing.

It is more economical to wash full loads.

When washing small loads, reduce the detergent by half to two thirds.

Pre-treatstains, and then wash at a lower temperature.

Use the energy-savingprogramme when washing light to normally soiled garments.

In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce the amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturers recommendations.
