Safety instructions

-Follow the installation and connection instructions

-Do not connect a damaged machine (e.g. damaged during transport)

-Small quantities of water in the detergent/additive compartment are due to factory tests

-To remove residue from manufacturing in the wash drum and dispenser compartment, a wash programme without clothes should be carried out - e.g. colour wash 60°C with a 1/2 measuring beaker of detergent.

The safety of AEG electrical appliances is in conformity with recognized technical standards and current legislation. Nevertheless, we feel obliged to point out to you and other possible users the following :

-Ensure before switching on the machine that the nominal voltage and current type indicated on the manufacturer’s plate correspond with the voltage and current type where the machine is to be used. The necessary fuse protection should also be read off the rating plate.

-If your ÖKO-LAVAMAT is in a room subject to temperatures below freezing, the water must be removed from the machine should the danger of freezing be expected.

-Before cleaning, care and maintenance, ensure that the machine is switched off. You are completely safe if you remove the plug from the power-point, or, in the case of a fixed installation, when the circuit breaker is open or the cartridge-fuse is completely removed (see installation and connection instructions).

-Never spray the machine with a jet of water.

-Never pull the plug out by pulling on the cord, but rather on the plug itself.

- Do not switch the machine on if

the electrical cord is damaged, or

if the machine shows signs of damage to the control panel, the work surface or the base

-Repairs to electrical appliances may only be carried out by qualified personnel. Incorrect repairs can result in considerable danger for the user. Please only contact our factory customer service or a repair workshop approved by us. Only original AEG spare parts fulfil all requirements.

-Do not allow children to play with the machine, and keep domestic animals away from it.

-When disposing of the machine in a proper manner, destroy the door locks and cut off the power supply cord.

-If the machine is improperly used or incorrectly operated, no responsibility can be accepted for possible damage.

-Securely attach the discharge hose to avoid the risk of scalding and overflow.

-In case of breakdown, close the water tap and disconnect the machine from the power supply. The machine is disconnected when the plug is removed or the circuit-breaker(s) is (are) opened.

-Keep packing parts away from small children. The plastic sheeting is particularly dangerous.

-If you are washing pre-cleaned garments, flammable

cleaning

spirits must be completely evaporated.

- Do not

use the machine for dry cleaning.

-If the machine is not connected to the potable water supply, but to a rainwater or similar supply, please observe the corresponding instructions.

-This machine complies with EC radio disturbance requirements 87/308/EC, EN 55014, DIN VDE 0875 part 1 and EN 55 011 - DIN VDE 0875 part 11 as well as the standard concerning effects on power supplies EN 60 555 parts 1-3 - DIN VDE 0838 parts 1-3.

The ÖKO-system

Your new ÖKO LAVAMAT from the AEG ÖKO System fulfils all current and future requirements of modern wash care and enables an individual and multiple choice of programmes.

The most economical use of water, power and detergent contributes to environmental relief and ensures the best economy.

Through the uniflow system, the detergent is continuously circulated. The system enables a 100% use of the detergent with every programme and all wash temperatures. This increases the cleaning effect and helps to save detergent, compared with other machines without such a system.

The ribs in the wash drum continuously carry the water to the top. This ensures an intense and balanced soaking of the wash.

The automatic water level control matches water consumption to the quantity of the wash and type of fabric.

All materials used are biodegradable. They can be disposed of without danger or burnt in rubbish incinerators.

Note on the materials : the plastics can be used again and are marked as follows: >PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags on the inside. >PS< for polystyrol foam, e.g. the padding, totally free from FCKW. The carton is made from used paper and should be deposited in the used paper collection.

For the sake of the environment ...

These instructions will help you to act in an environmentally conscious manner :

For normally soiled washes, programmes without prewash are provided. Compared to a programme with pre-wash, you save on water and detergent. Only use detergent with bleach additive if the wash is soiled with spots which can be bleached. Bleaches are particularly effective at high temperatures. Consumption of the machine is most favourable when it is full.

For light to normally soiled washes, the saving programme is often sufficient; it uses lower temperatures which are maintained for longer periods.

Spots and stains can be removed by appropriate pretreatment. This saves a programme for heavily soiled clothes.

Use the detergent exactly as advised by the manufacturer. Too much "wates" your money and is bad for the environment. Follow the instructions for lightly soiled garments.

Savings on detergent and for the environment may also be achieved if with medium to hard water you add sufficient detergent for soft water and then add separately a softener. This relieves our waters of a certain amount of chemicals.

Use fabric softener only when necessary, e.g. with synthetic mixed fabrics, to avoid static charging. If you use a dryer, your wash will be soft and fluffy even without fabric softener.
