Important

Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the ma-chine is stable during the spin.

If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the wash cycle, because it is not evenly distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute the wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed "Something Not Working".

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.

9

Main features of your washing machine

Programme and temperature setting using the programme selector.

Stain option for effectively treating stained washing.

Energy saving programme for normally soiled cotton items.

Speed for the final spin can be reduced to 900, 700 or 500 rpm.

RINSE HOLD: the laundry is left immersed in the final rinse water to prevent creasing.

DELAY START (delayed start):

programme start can be delayed by 30 minutes to 23 hours (e.g. to times with a more economical power rate).

Because of its gentle washing action, the special wool cycle washes your garments with extreme care.

Description of the appliance

Detergent dispenser drawer

Programme chart

Compartment for prewash detergent and stain remover. The prewash detergent is added at the beginning of the wash programme. The stain remover is added during the STAIN-Action phase in the main wash.

Compartment for powder or liquid detergent used for main wash. It is emptied at the beginning of the wash cycle.

Compartment for liquid additives (fabric softener, starch). It is emptied at the last rinse.

The quantity of additives must not exceed the “MAX” mark in the drawer.

Before the first wash

Before your first wash, we recommend that you run a cotton cycle at 95°C, without any laundry in the machine, to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and tub.

Pour 1/2 a measure of detergent into the dispenser drawer and start the machine.

18

Preparing the wash cycle

Sorting out and preparing the laundry

Sort out the laundry according to type of fabrics and care labels (see “Types of fabric and care labels”).

Empty pockets.

Remove any metal parts (safety pins, clips, etc.).

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 decline any responsibility in case of 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 (Easy-cares)

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

20

40 30

Preparing the wash cycle

Delicates

Microfibres, easy-cares 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

40

 

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.

Fabrics marked with the symbol (wool) can be machine washed only if the label indicates “does not felt” or “machine washable”.

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

21

Preparing the wash cycle

Detergents and additives

Which detergent?....

To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your appliance, it is important to use the right detergent in your everyday wash, and only detergents recommended for use in automatic machines.

To maintain the appearance of your clothes and household textiles and to make them last longer you should use different types of detergent for different washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.

WHITES

We recommend the Ariel product range which is biological and designed to provide excellent cleaning and stain removal even at low temperatures.

NON BIOLOGICAL

If you prefer to use a non biological detergent, which does not contain enzymes we recommend Fairy. Fairy provides good cleaning and stain removal.

COLOUREDS

For coloured items you should use a detergent which is designed to clean while maintaining the original colour. Ariel Color does not contain bleach and therefore helps to preserve colours.

DELICATE ITEMS

When washing delicates such as woollens, you should use a product which is specially designed to care for fine fabrics. Dreft Automatic is suitable for woollens and other delicates.

LAUNDRY BLEACH

For additional stain removal you may wish to use a product such as Ace Gentle Bleach which is used in addition to your chosen detergent. Ace is suitable for all washable fabrics including silks, woollens and coloureds.

STAIN REMOVER

For heavily soiled garments to be washed with STAINAction, you should use stain removers such as VANISH InWash, Ecover Stain Salt and GloWhite Booster.

22

Preparing the wash cycle

And in which form?

Not only are there different types of detergent, but they are also available in different forms. Whether you chose a powder or liquid in traditional or compact form is your own personal choice.

TRADITIONAL POWDERS

Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum.

TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS

Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer marked with the symbol , start the machine immediately upon placing the detergent in the dispenser drawer.

Alternatively the detergent is measured into the specially designed dosing device* which should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.

COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS

Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also known) are available in liquid or powder form, and generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most economical usage. Pour the detergent directly into the dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the detergent into the specially designed dosing device* which should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.

* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer, please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed before carrying out a drying programme.

FABRIC CONDITIONERS

These are ideal for improving “softness”, and also reduce static cling on easy-cares and make ironing easier. They are available in two types:

For example Lenor liquid fabric softener, for use in the washing machine/washer dryer. The liquid fabric softener should be poured into the compartment marked

with the symbol . Follow the manufacturer’s dosage instructions and never exceed the MAX level.

Bounce conditioning sheets for use in a tumble dryer. We

recommend the conditioning sheets are pinned (using a safety pin) to an article of laundry and placed in the tumble dryer.

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

Maintenance Wash

With the use of low temperature washes it is possible to get a build up of residues inside the drum.

We recommend that a maintenance wash be performed on a regular basis.

To run a maintenance wash:

The drum should be empty of laundry.

Select the hottest cotton wash programme.

Use a normal measure of detergent, must be a powder (such as Ariel Futur).

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.

30

Cleaning and maintenance

To remove the drawer from the machine, press the button in the rear lefthand 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.

Door seal

Regularly check to see, if there are deposits or foreign objects in the rubber seal behind the door and remove them.

Drain filter

The drain filter collects threads and small objects inadver-

tently left in the laundry. Check regularly that the filter is clean.

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.

31

Cleaning and maintenance

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. To do this, depress the small yellow button on the hose.

Clean the filter with a stiff brush.

Screw the hose back onto the tap.

Emergency emptying out

If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain hose 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 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 and run it until the machine stops.

Turn the programme selector dial to RESET.

Press the ON/OFF button to switch the machine off.

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 the formation of ice and, consequently, damage to the appliance.

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

32

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

-E20: problem with water draining

-E40: door open

At the same time the light END flashes and some acoustic signals can be herd.

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/ELECTROLUX Service Force Centre.

Something not working?

Problem

Possible cause

Solution

The unbalance detection device that prevents excessive vibration during spinning has cut in.

Spinning starts late or the machine does not spin

If the laundry is not evenly distributed inside the drum at the beginning of the spin cycle, the machine detects this and tries to redistribute it more evenly by means of a few drum rotations.

Only when the laundry is more evenly distributed will the spin cycle be

performed, at a lower speed, if the laundry is not evenly distributed.

If, after about 6 minutes, the laundry is still tangled, the machine will not spin. Therefore, if the laundry is still wet at the end of the cycle, it is advisable to redistribute it manually inside the drum and to select the spin programme again.

36

Something not working?

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.

Building-inInstallation

Recommendations regarding the construction and fitting of a base when the installation requires an integrated appliance to be raised

Where the appliance has been raised by mounting onto a wooden base provided by the installer. The material used to construct the base should have a non slip surface, be water repellent and if possible be one solid piece.

If it is not possible to use one solid piece, due to the additional height required, ensure that any additional strips of timber are glued and screwed to the underside of the base (see Fig. F).

With the appliance installed adjust all four feet ensuring the machine is stable, and a clearance of approximately 5 mm is left between the top of the machine and the underside of the worktop.

A final check for stability should be carried out with the machine on spin with a load, this will identify the need for any further fine adjustment to the feet.

A strip of beading approximately 605 mm W, x 5 mm H, x 25 mm D must be screwed down into the base directly in front of the machine’s feet, this will provide additional security.

If required an additional door magnet, part number 1242394-00/3 and disc, part number 1242393-00/5 are available from spare parts.
