Safety instructions

The safety of AEG 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 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!

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).

To prevent the laundry from getting damaged and forming bundles, it is advisable to close zips, button up pillowcases and quilt covers and tie up loose straps such as those of aprons.

Turn double faced items inside out (sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.)

Turn coloured knitted fabrics, woollens and fabrics with trim inside out.

Wash small and delicate items (baby socks, tights) inside a laundry net or in a pillow case closed with a zip, or in larger socks.

Treat curtains with special care. Remove all metal or plastic hooks or put them in a net or a bag. We take no responsibility for any damage.

Whites and coloureds must be washed separately: white items can loose their whiteness.

New coloured fabrics often have excess dyes; it is advisable to wash them separately for the first time.

Wash small and large items together; this improves the washing result and the laundry is better distributed during spinning.

Shake out garments before putting them into the machine.

Insert each garment separately.

Types of fabric and care labels

The labels on garments help you to select the most suitable wash programme. The laundry should be sorted out according to the type of fabric and the instructions indicated on care labels.

Temperatures indicated on labels are always maximum temperatures.

Cotton 95

Linen and cottons marked with this symbol can be washed at high temperatures.

Cotton 60

Linen and cottons marked with this symbol are colourfast and can be washed at 60°C.

Cotton

Garments marked with these symbols have delicate colours, therefore the washing temperature must not exceed these values.

Synthetics 40 50 60

Mixed and synthetic fabrics marked with these symbols require a gentle wash programme and they must therefore be washed using the specific programme.

Preparing the wash cycle

Delicates

Microfibres, synthetics or curtains marked with these symbols require a very gentle treatment.

The DELICATES programme is suitable for this type of fabric.

Woollens and particularly delicate items

Fabrics such as wool, wool mix or silk marked with this symbol are particularly sensitive to machine washing.

The WOOLLENS programme is suitable for this type of fabric.

If the label has the symbol (do not wash), the garments must not be machine washed!

Preparing the wash cycle

Detergents and additives

Which detergent and additive?

Use only detergents and additives for washing machines. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

How much detergent?

The quantity depends on:

the load:

if the manufacturer does not provide any indications on the amount of detergent for small loads, use about one third less than the suggested amount for half loads and half the amount for very small loads;

the degree of soil:

use a small amount of detergent for lightly soiled garments. Judge the amount according to the detergent manufacturer’s instructions and size of the load;

the water hardness:

the harder the water, the more detergent required. Instructions according to water hardness are given on the detergent pack.

Liquid detergent

Liquid detergent can be poured directly into the main wash compartment of the dispenser drawer immediately before starting the programme, or a special dispenser can be used that is placed directly in the drum. Measure the detergent according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Adding a water softener (descaling product)

A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree of hardness (from degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to degree of hardness I (= soft). Information on water hardness can be obtained from your local water supply authority.

At the end of the programme

The machine stops automatically. A zero appears on the display. An acoustic signal is clearly audible. The END light comes on in the programme progress display.

If the light (OVERDOSAGE) comes on it indicates that too much detergent has been used. At the next wash carefully follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions. Measure out detergent according to amount, type, degree of soil of fabrics and water hardness.

This light could come on also when the drain filter is blocked.

If the RINSE HOLD option has been selected, the water must be emptied out before opening the door either

-by pressing the START/PAUSE button (the laundry will be spun at the speed corresponding to the selected type of fabrics. The spin speed can be reduced by means of the SPIN SPEED button)

-or by turning the selector dial to O and then to DRAIN “C” and pressing the START/PAUSE button again. In this case the water will be emptied, but the laundry is not spun.

Turn the selector dial to O. Remove the laundry from the drum.

Check that the drum is empty so as to avoid any forgotten items being damaged in a subsequent wash (e.g. shrinking) or their colour running into a load of whites.

Close the water tap.

Leave the door open to prevent the formation of mildew and unpleasant smells.

Cleaning and maintenance

After each wash

At the end of the wash programme, pull the dispenser drawer out a little to let it dry.

Leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate.

If the machine is not used for a prolonged period:

Close the water tap and unplug the appliance.

Periodical cleaning

Exterior

Clean the outside of the cabinet with soap and water only. Rinse with clean water and dry.

Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products to clean the cabinet.

Detergent dispenser drawer

After a while, detergents and fabric softeners leave deposits in the drawer.

Clean the drawer, from time to

time, by rinsing it under a running

tap. To remove the drawer from the machine, press the button in the rear left-hand corner.

To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive compartment can be removed.

Detergent can also accumulate inside the drawer recess: clean it with an old toothbrush.

Refit the drawer after cleaning.

28

132996650.qxd 26/09/01 14.30 Pagina 29

(Nero/Process Black pellicola)

Cleaning and maintenance

Door seal

Check from time to time the door seal and eliminate eventual possible objects that could be trapped in the fold.

Drain filter

The drain filter collects threads and small objects inadvertently left in the laundry. Check regularly that the filter is clean.

Open the filter door.

Place a container under the filter and unscrew it; some water will come out of the filter.

Pull out the filter.

Clean the filter under a running tap, then refit it, screwing it fully in.

Water inlet filter

If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked.

Turn off the water tap.

Unscrew the hose from the tap.

Clean the filter with a stiff brush.

Screw the hose back onto the tap.

29

132996650.qxd 26/09/01 14.30 Pagina 30

(Nero/Process Black pellicola)

Cleaning and maintenance

Emergency emptying out

If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain pipe are clogged), proceed as follows to empty out the machine:

pull out the plug from the power socket;

close the water tap;

if necessary, wait until the water has cooled;

place a bowl on the floor;

put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water come out.

Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come out slowly.

At the end screw the filter again.

Frost precautions

If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as follows:

Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap.

Place the end of the drain hose and the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor.

Select the “DRAIN” programme “C” and run it until the machine stops.

Turn the programme selector dial to O (RESET).

Remove the plug from the power socket.

Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its place.

By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding ice forming and consequently damage to the appliance.

When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0°C.

30

132996650.qxd 26/09/01 14.30 Pagina 31

(Nero/Process Black pellicola)

Something not working?

If during the spin cycle the machine makes an unusual whistling noise, different from the noise made by traditional washing machines, this is due to a new type of motor.

If water is not visible in the drum, this is due to the modern technology of new washing machines that use less water than traditional machines.

Troubleshooting

If a problem arises, you can try to solve it yourself following the instructions below.

If you call out an engineer when one of the following problems arises, or to repair a fault due to incorrect use, the call-out will be charged even if requested within the guarantee period.

During machine operation the following alarm codes may be displayed:

-E10: problem with the water supply (phase light is on)

-E20: problem with water draining (phase light is on)

-E40: door open (phase light is on)

Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem persists, contact your local AEG Service Force Centre.

Unsatisfactory washing results

If the laundry looks grey and lime scale is found in the drum

Too little detergent has been used.

An unsuitable detergent has been used.

Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.

The programme/temperature has not been correctly selected.

If grey stains remain on the laundry

Laundry stained with ointments, grease or oil has been washed with an insufficient amount of detergent.

The temperature selected for the wash programme was too low.

Fabric softener - especially the concentrated type - has come into direct contact with the laundry. Wash these stains immediately and pour fabric softener carefully.

Foam is still visible even after the last rinse

Modern detergents often produce foam, even in the last rinse. However the laundry has been completely rinsed.

White residue is left on the laundry

This is due to insoluble components in modern detergents and is therefore not the result of insufficient rinsing. Shake or brush the laundry. In future, it may be better to turn garments inside out before washing them. Check the choice of detergent; try using liquid detergents.

In all cases, explain your problem carefully, in order to facilitate troubleshooting: the engineer will be able to decide whether a service call is necessary.

Take note of the serial number (Ser.No.) and the product number (Prod. No.) indicated on the rating plate.

Furthermore, try to specify, as precisely as possible:

-The symptoms of the fault

-When the fault occurs

-The alarm code displayed

When can a service visit be charged during the guarantee period?

-when it should have been possible to solve the problem by yourself, with the help of the troubleshooting chart (see section “Something not working?”)

-when the engineer has to come out several times because he has not been given all the relevant information he needs and so, for example, has to fetch spare parts. Repeated trips can be avoided if you prepare your call to the Service centre as described above.

Installation

Unpacking

All transit bolts and packing must be removed before using the appliance.

Using a spanner, unscrew and remove the rear right-hand bolt and lay the machine on its back, taking care not to squash the hoses. This can be avoided by placing one of the corner packing pieces between the machine and the floor.

25

Remove the polystyrene block from the bottom of the machine and release the two plastic bags which are fixed under the filter door.

2 1

Carefully remove the right-hand bag (1) then the left-hand bag (2) by pulling them towards the centre of the machine.

Set the machine

upright and

remove the two remaining bolts

from the back.

Pull out the three

plastic spacers from the holes into which the bolts

were fitted.

Plug the open holes with the plugs which you will find in the plastic bag containing the instruction booklet.

You are advised to keep all transit devices so that they can be refitted if the machine ever has to be transported again.

Installation

Positioning

Install the machine on a flat hard floor.

Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not impeded by carpets, rugs etc.

Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.

Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of wood, cardboard or similar materials under the machine.

If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas cooker or coal-burning stove, an insulating panel (85x57 cm) covered with aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be inserted between the two appliances;

The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature can drop below 0.

The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.

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

Levelling

Carefully level by screwing the adjustable feet in or out. Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under the machine to compensate for any unevenness in the floor.

Water inlet

Connect the water inlet hose supplied with the

machine to a

separate tap with a 3/4"

thread. Do not use already

employed hoses.

The other end of the inlet hose which connects to the machine can be turned in any direction. Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the hose and retighten the fitting, making sure there are no water leaks.

The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too short and you do not wish to move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially designed for this type of use.

Installation

Water drainage

The end of the drain hose can be positioned in three ways:

Hooked over the edge of a sink using the plastic hose guide supplied with the

machine. In this case, make sure the end cannot come unhooked when the machine is emptying.

This could be done by tying it to the tap with a piece of string or attaching it to the wall.

In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch must be above the trap so that the bend is at least 60 cm above the ground.

Directly into a

drain pipe at a height of not less than 60 cm and not more than 90 cm.

The end of the

drain hose must always be ventilated, i.e. the inside diameter of the drain pipe must be larger than the outside diameter of the drain hose.

The drain hose must not be kinked. Run it along the floor; only the part near the drainage point must be raised.

Electrical connection

This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase, 50 Hz supply.

Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum load required (2.2 kW), also taking into account any other appliances in use.

Connect the machine to an earthed socket.

The manufacturer does not accept any responsibility for damage or injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution.

Installation

Permanent connection

In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap of 3 mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the current electrical regulations.

The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any point.

This operation must be performed by a qualified electrician.

Important: The power supply cable must be easily accessible after installing the machine.
