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-wash for normally soiled washing.

It is more economical to wash full loads.

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

Pre-treat stains, and then wash at a lower temperature.

Use the energy-saving programme 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.

13

Operating Instructions

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 further improvement to washing technology is introduced by AEG then 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.

Anti-flood Aqua Control + Aqua Alarm

The inlet hose has a mechanical built in safety device. In the event of the filling hose failing, the safety device will automatically shut off the water supply.

In the event of a leak within the machine the float switch, which is mounted in the base of the appliance, will operate the drain pump and an audible signal will be heard

The system will operate as long as the appliance is connected to the mains electricity supply, even if the programme selector is in the off position.

14

Operating Instructions

Before the first wash

0Run a washing cycle without washing (COTTONS 95, with half the amount of detergent).

This removes any residues from the drum which may have been left during manufacturing.

Preparing a Wash Load

Sorting and preparing a wash load

Sort washing according to the 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 duvet covers 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 fabrics with appliqués should be turned inside out.

Place small and delicate items (e.g. socks, tights and stockings, bras etc.) in a washing net, or pillow case.

Handle curtains with care. Metal rollers or burred, plastic rollers must be removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for damage.

Do not wash coloured and white washing together. This could discolour white washing or turn it grey.

New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these separately the first time.

Mix small and large items of washing. This improves washing efficiency and the washing is more evenly distributed during the spinning cycle.

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".

15

Operating Instructions

Washing Types and Care Symbols

The care symbols help you choose the correct washing programme. Washing should be sorted according to type and care symbol. The temperatures indicated in the care symbols are maximum values.

Cottons ç

Fabrics made from cotton and linen with this care symbol will withstand maximum wash actions and high temperatures. The programme COTTONS/LINEN is appropriate for this type of washing.

Linens è ë

Fabrics made from cottons and linens with this care symbol will withstand maximum wash actions. The programme COTTONS/LINEN is appropriate for this type of washing.

Easy-care washing ê í

Fabrics such as treated cotton, cotton mixed fabrics, viscose and synthetics with this care symbol require chemically more gentle treatment. The programme EASY CARES/EASY IRON is suitable for this type of washing.

Delicates ì

Fabrics such as those with layered fibres, micro fibres, viscose, as well as synthetics and Curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful handling. The DELICATES programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Wool, silk and particularly sensitive washing 9 ì ï

Fabrics such as wool, wool mixtures and silk which carry this care symbol are particularly sensitive to mechanical stress. The programmes WOOLLENS /P(hand wash) and SILK/P(hand wash) are suitable for this type of fabric.

Important! Fabrics with this care symbol ñ(do not wash) must not be washed in the washing machines.

16

Operating Instructions

Detergents and Conditioners

Which detergent and conditioner?

Use only detergents and conditioners which are suitable for use in automatic washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.

How much detergent and conditioner?

The required quantity depends upon:

the extent of soiling of the washing

the hardness class of the mains water

the amount of washing

2 Should the detergent manufacturer not specify the dosage quantity for less than full loads, reduce the detergent accordingly: For a half load reduce the quantity by 1/3. For a small load or an EASY IRON programme reduce the quantity by 1/2.

Observe the instructions for use and dosing provided by the detergent and conditioner manufacturer.

Water softening

For medium to high water hardness (hardness class II upwards) a water softening agent can be used. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent (underdosing) for hardness class I (soft). Your local Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in your area.

Insufficient detergent has been added.

Incorrect detergent was used.

If using modular detergents, the individual components were not used in the correct ratio.

If there are still grey stains on the washing

Soiled garments with ointments, grease or oils were washed with insufficient detergent.

The temperature selected for the wash was too low.

A frequent cause is that fabric softener - particularly a concentrated one - has come into contact with the washing. Wash out these types of stains as soon as possible and use the fabric softener carefully.

If after the last rinse foam is still visible

Modern detergents can still cause foam in the final rinse cycle. However, the washing is still sufficiently rinsed.

If there are white residues on the washing

These are insoluble contents of modern detergents. 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 detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.

34

Installation and connection instructions

Installation-Site preparation

The installation surface must be clean, dry and level. Do not install on a deep pile carpet.

Minor unevenness of the floor surface should never be levelled out by laying pieces of wood, card or similar materials, but should always be compensated for by adjusting the screw feet.

If the appliance is installed next to a heat source (e.g. cooking appliance), a heat insulating pad (87 x 57 cm) must be placed between the appliance and the heat source.

Do not install the appliance in locations where the temperature may fall below freezing.

Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.

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.

44

Installation and connection instructions

Levelling the appliance

3 Self adjusting foot: The rear 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 still not stable during spinning, proceed as follows:

0 1. Set the three adjustable feet to the nominal value of 10 mm.

Use the supplied spanner.

If the self adjusting foot does not reach the floor:

2. Manually extend the self adjusting foot (rear left) 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 unevenness in the floor. Always use the adjustable feet.

Water Drainage

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.

Important! It is essential to lay the drainage hose without kinks.

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.

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.

50

Installation and connection instructions

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.

Important! The end of the drainage hose must not be submerged in the pumped-out water. Otherwise, the water could be sucked back into the appliance.
