Operating Instructions

Operating Instructions

1 Safety

The safety aspects of AEG electrical appliances comply with accepted technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. However, as manufacturers we regard it as our responsibility to inform you about the following safety instructions.

Before Using for the First Time

Refer to the "Installation and Connection Instructions" further on in this user information.

If units are delivered in the winter months at minus temperatures: Store the washing machine at room temperature for a few hours before putting it into operation.

Correct Use

The washing machine is only intended for washing normal domestic washing. If the appliance is used for a wrong purpose or wrongly operated, the manufacturer cannot assume any liability for any damages.

Additions or modifications to the washing machine are strictly forbidden due to safety reasons.

Use only detergent which is suitable for washing machines. Refer to the detergent manufacturer's instructions.

The washing must not contain any flammable solvents. Also bear this in mind when washing pre-cleaned washing.

Do not use the washing machine for dry-cleaning.

Dyes /dye-removing agents may only be used in the washing machine if the manufacturer expressly permits use of these products. We cannot accept liability for any damage.

Use only water from the water mains. Use rain water or service water only if it meets the requirements defined in DIN 1986 and DIN 1988.

Frost damage is not covered by the warranty! If the washing machine is in a room subject to possible frost hazards, emergency emptying must be carried out if there is a risk of frost (see the Section "Carrying out emergency emptying“).

6

Operating Instructions

Child Safety

Packaging materials (e.g. films, polystyrene) can be dangerous for children. Risk of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.

Children frequently cannot recognise hazards involved in handling electrical appliances. Therefore, ensure that they are properly supervised during operation and never allow children to play with the washing machine -there is a risk that they can lock themselves inside it.

Ensure that children or small animals do not climb into the washing machine's drum.

When disposing of washing machines pull out the mains plug, destroy the door lock, cut off the electrical supply lead and dispose of the plug and remaining cable. This means that playing children cannot shut themselves in and cannot encounter a potentially lethal hazard.

General Safety

Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by qualified specialists. Incorrect repairs may result in significant risk to the user. If repairs are necessary, consult our customer service or your specialist dealer.

Never use the washing machine if the mains cable is damaged or the conrol panel, work surface or base panel area are so badly damaged that the interior of the unit is openly accessible.

Switch off the washing machine before carrying out cleaning, care and maintenance work. Also pull the mains plug out of the socket or,

– if it is permanently connected, – switch off the circuit breaker at the household power distribution box or completely remove the screw-in fuse.

If the appliance will be out of operation for an extended period of time, unplug it from the mains.

Never pull the cable to remove the plug from the socket. Always pull the plug itself.

Multiple connectors, couplings and extension cables must not be used. There is a risk of fire with overheating!

Do not spray down the washing machine with a water jet. Risk of electric shock!

The glass in the door becomes hot in the case of wash programmes with high temperatures. Do not touch!

7

for polyethylene, e.g. packing films.
for polystyrene, e.g. cushion parts (always CFC-free) for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clips.

Operating Instructions

Allow the washing solution to cool before carrying out an emergency emptying operation or cleaning the drain pump.

Small animals can chew the power cables and water hoses. Risk of electric shock and danger of water damage! Keep small animals away from the washing machine.

2 Disposal

Disposing of the Packaging Material!

Dispose of the packaging of your washing machine correctly. All pakkaging materials used are environmentally-compatible and recyclable.

• Plastic parts are identified with internationally standardised abbreviations:

>PE<

>PS<

>POM<

Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and should be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling.

Disposing of your old appliance!

When you put your unit out of operation one day, please bring it to your nearest recycling centre or to your dealer.

Operating Instructions

2Environmental tips

A pre-wash cycle is not necessary in the case of washing which is not excessively dirt. This saves detergent, water and time (and is gentle on the environment.)

If the indicated load capacities are taken full advantage of, the washing machine is especially efficient.

For small loads, use only one half to one third of the recommended detergent quantity.

Suitable pre-treatment enables marks and limited amounts of dirt to be removed. You can then wash at a lower temperature.

Wash slightly to normally dirty cottons with the energy-saving program.

There is often no need for the softener. Try it once! If you use a drier, your washing will become soft and fluffy even without a softener.

In the case of medium to high water hardness (hardness range runs to upwards, see "Detergent and care agents“), you should use a water softener. The detergent can then always be metered for hardness range I (= soft).

Actual consumption will vary from the indicated values depending on water pressure, water hardness, inlet water temperature, room temperature, type and quantity of washing, detergent used, variations in mains voltage and any option functions selected.

Before the First Wash

01. Pull out the washing powder drawer slightly.

2.Pour about 1 litre of water through the washing powder drawer into the washing machine. With the next program start, this will close the solution container and the eco-sluice can function correctly.

3.Run the washing cycle without washing (t/COTTONS/LINEN 95 °C, with half the amount of washing detergent). This removes residues left over from production on the drum and solution container.

13

Operating Instructions

Prepare washing cycle

Sort washing and prepare

Sort the washing according to the care symbol and type (see "Washing types and care codes").

Empty all pockets.

Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).

To prevent damage to the washing and tangled washing: Close zip fasteners, button bed and pillow covers closed, tie up loose strings e.g. of aprons.

Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags, anoraks etc.).

In the case of knitted coloured textiles and also with wool and textiles with jewelry attached: turn inside out.

Wash small and sensitive items (e.g. baby socks, tights and stockings, bras etc.) in a washing net, a cushion with a zip fastener or in larger socks.

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

Coloureds and white items must not be washed together in a washing cycle. This could discolour white washing or turn it grey.

There is often excess dye in new, coloured items. It is best to wash such items separately the first time.

Mix small and large items. This improves the washing effect and the washing is more favourably distributed during spinning.

Fluff washing before placing into the washing machine.

Do not place folded washing into the drum.

Pay attention to the care instruction "wash separately" and "wash separately several times".

14

Operating Instructions

Types of Washing and Care Symbols

Care symbols help you to choose the correct wash programme. Washing should be sorted by type, and according to their care symbols. The temperature indicated on the care symbol is the maximum wash temperature.

Cottons ç

Cotton and linen items with this care symbol are not sensitive to machine washing or high temperatures. The t(COTTONS/LINEN) programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Linen è ë

Cotton and linen items with this care symbol are not sensitive to machine washing. The t(COTTONS/LINEN) programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Easy-Cares ê í

Materials such as fine cotton, wool-blend fabrics, viscose, and synthetics with these care symbols require gentler treatment. The }(EASYCARES) programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Delicatesì

Materials such as layered fibres, microfibres, viscose, synthetics, and net curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful treatment. The Ã(DELICATES) programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Wool/silk and especially sensitive materials 9 ì ï

Woollens, wool blends and silk with these care symbols are particularly sensitive to machine washing. The s(WOOL)/Ñ (SILK)

P(Handwash) programme is suitable for this type of washing.

Important! Materials with the care symbol ñ(Not machine-washa- ble!) should not be washed in the washing machine.

15

Operating Instructions

Washing Detergents and Care Agents

Which detergent and care agent?

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

How much detergent and care agent?

The amount to be used depends on:

the dirtiness of the washing

the hardness category of the mains water supply

the quantity of washing

2 If the detergent manufacturer does not include dosing instructions for reduced loads, use one third less for half loads and only half of the full load detergent quantity for very small loads.

Refer to the detergent/care agent manufacturer's instructions on use and dosage.

Water softener

For medium to high water hardness (hardness class II upwards), you should use softener. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent for hardness class I

(= soft). The responisable water works will provide information on the local water hardness.

2

Since the water softener is rinsed in before the main detergent (water

 

pre-softening), 80% of the stated quantity of softener shown on the

 

package is sufficient.

Operating Instructions

If the washing results are not satisfactory

If the washing has turned grey and if limescale is deposited in the drum, then

Too little detergent was used.

The wrong detergent was used.

Special soiling was not pre-treated.

Program or temperature not set correctly.

If multi-component detergents are used, the individual components were not used in the correct ratio.

If there are still grey spots on the washing,

Washing soiled with ointments, grease or oils was washed with too little detergent.

Too lower temperature was used for washing.

A frequent cause is that softener - particularly that in concentrated form - has reached the washing. Wash out such spots quickly and use the softener concerned carefully.

If at the end of the last rinse foam is still visible

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

If there are white remnants on the washing

These are insoluble components of modern detergents. They are not the result of an insufficient rinsing effect.

Shake or brush out the washing. In future, perhaps you should turn the washing inside out before washing it. Examine your choice of detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.

33

Operating Instructions

Carrying out emergency drainage

If the washing machine no longer pumps off the washing solution, emergency drainage must be performed.

If the washing machine is in a room where there is a risk of frost, emergency drainage must be performed if there is a possibility of frost.

In addition: unscrew the inlet hose form the water tap and place it on the floor. Empty the drainage hose.

1Warning! Switch off the washing machine before performing emergency drainage and pull out the mains plug.

Installation Safety Precautions

Do not tilt the washing machine onto its front or onto its right side (viewed from the front). Electronic components can get wet.

Check the washing machine for transport damages. A damaged unit must never be put into operation under any circumstances. In the event of damage, please contact your supplier.

Ensure that all parts of the transport safeguard are removed and that the unit is splash protected, see "Removing transport safeguard". Otherwise, the units or neighbouring furniture can be damaged when spinning.

Always insert the plug into a correctly installed earthed socket.

In the case of permanent connection: A permanent connection may only be made by an authorised specialist.

Before putting the machine into operation, ensure that the mains voltage and current type shown on the unit's rating plate correspond with those at the place where the machine is being installed. The fuse rating is also found on the rating plate.

Should work be carried out on the water supply installations in order to allow the machine to be connected properly to the water supply, this work must be carried out by an authorised installer.

Should work be carried out on the mains supply in order to allow the machine to be connected properly to the electricity supply, this work must be carried out by an authorised electrician.

The mains lead may only be replaced by the customer service or by an authorised electrician.

37

Installation and connection instructions

Installation of the appliance

3

Washing machines with curved panels are not suitable for installing

 

under units.

Transporting the appliance

Do not place the washing machine on its front or on its right side (viewed from the front). Otherwise, electrical components can get wet.

Never transport the unit without the transport safeguard. Do not remove the transport safeguard until the appliance is at the installation location. Transporting the unit without the transport safeguard can damage it.

Lift the appliance neither by an open filling door nor by the base.

When transporting the unit with a sack trolley: Attach the sack trolley only at the side.

Remove transport packaging

Important! It is essential to remove the transport packaging before putting the appliance into operation. Keep all parts of the transport packaging in a safe place for future use.

0 1. Open both hose holders on the appliance's rear side and remove the hoses and mains cable.

2. Pull both hose holders off the appliance with a strong pull.

Important! When fitting the plastic caps, press until they snap into the rear panel securely.

39

Installation and connection instructions

Prepare the installation place

The installation surface must be clean and dry, free of floor polish residues and other greasy coatings so that the unit does not slip away. Do not use lubricants as a sliding aid.

Installation on a high-veil carpet or floor tiles with soft sponge backs is not recommended because the standing safety of the appliance is then no longer ensured.

By installation surfaces with small-format tiles, lay a conventional rubber mat underneath.

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

If, for space reasons, it is not possible to avoid setting up the unit directly next to a gas or coal-fired cooker: install a thermal insulation panel between the cooker and washing machine (85 x 57cm) which must have an aluminium film on the side against the cooker.

The washing machine must not be set up in a room where there is a danger of frost. Frost hazard!

Flexible feed and drain tubings may not be crinkled or squeezed.

Installation on a concrete base

If the unit is set up on a concrete base, for safety reasons it is essential to fit stand plates in which the washing machine is adjusted. The stand plates are available from Customer Service under the spare parts number 645 425 058.

Installation on vibrating floors

Where the floor vibrates, particularly in the case of wooden beam floors with pliable boards, securely screw a water-resistant wooden panel at least 15mm thick onto at least 2 floor planks. If possible, set up the unit in the corner of a room, as the wooden floor is optimally restrained there and is therefore least likely to be subject to resonance vibrations.

40

Installation and connection instructions

Compensate for floor unevenness

Floor unevenness can be compensated for and the height can be corrected with the four adjustable screw feet. The height can be adjusted in the range +10 .. -5mm.

To adjust the feet use the special spanner supplied for removing the transport braces.

01. Slide the special key firmly onto the hexagon head of the threa-

ded foot as far as it will go.

2. Adjust the screw feet so that the unit is horizontal and stable. The

unit must not wobble over when loaded.

3. If necessary, check the setting

with a spirit level.

Important! Minor unevenness of the floor surface should never be levelled out by laying pieces of

wood, card or similar materials, but rather should always be com-

pensated for by adjusting the adjustable feet.

41

Installation and connection instructions

Electrical connection

Details of the mains voltage, current

type and required fuses can be found on the rating plate. The rating plate is located at the top above the filling door.

For permanent electrical connection within the electrical circuit, provi-

sions must be made which allow for electrical disconnection of the appliance from the mains with a contact opening of at least 3 mm at all poles. Suitable devices include circuit breakers, fuses (threaded fuses must be entirely removed from the socket), ground fault circuit interrupters and contactors. Permanent connection may only be carried out by an authorised electrician.

;This appliance complies with the following EC directives:

The "Low Voltage Directive" 72/23/EU with changes

The "EMC Directive" 89/336/EU with changes

Water connection

3 The washing machine has safety features which prevent back-contami- nation of the drinking water and which conform to the national regulations of the water authorities (e.g. for Germany: DVGW guidelines).

This means that additional protective measures in the installation are not necessary.

Important!

Units for connecting to cold water must not be connected to hot water.

Use only new hose sets for the connection.

Permissible water pressure

The water pressure must be at least 1 bar (= 10 N/cm2 = 0.1 Mpa), maximum 10 bar = 100 N/cm2 = 1 Mpa).

If more than 10 bar: Connect a pressure-reduction valve upstream.

If less than 1 bar: Unscrew the inlet hose on the unit side at the solenoid intake valve and remove the flow regulator (to do this, remove the filter with pointed pliers and take out the rubber washer behind). Replace the filter.

42

Installation and connection instructions

Water inflow

A pressure hose of 1.35m in length is supplied.

If a longer inflow hose is required, only a VDE-approved, complete set of hoses with fitted hose screw connections offered by our Customer Service is permissible.

Hose sets in lengths of 2.2m, 3.5m and 5m are available for washing machines without Aqua-Control.

Hose sets in lengths of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.5m are available for washing machines with Aqua-Control.

Important! Never cut into pieces in order to extend the hoses!

3

Sealing rings are supplied either in the plastic

 

nuts of the hose screw connection or in the enc-

losed pack. Do not use other seals!

0 1. Connect the hose with the angled connection to the machine.

Important!

– Do not lay the inlet hose vertically downwards, instead run it to the right or left as shown in the diagram.

– Tighten the hose screw connection only by hand.

2. Connect the hose with the

straight connection to a water valve with a screw thread R 3/4 (inches).

Important! Only tighten the screw connection manually.

3. By slowly opening the water valve before putting the washing machine into operation, check that the connection is free of leaks.

Installation and connection instructions

Water drain

The drainage hose can either be connected to a siphon or hung in a wash basin or discharge basin or a bath tub.

Only original hoses may be used for extensions (max. 3m laid on the floor and then up to 80cm high). Customer Service stocks drainage hoses in lengths of 2.7 and 4m.

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

Water drain-off inside a siphon

The grommet on the hose end fits all standard siphon types.

0 Secure the connection between the grommet and siphon with a hose clamp.

Water drain-off inside a basin

Important!

Small basins are not suitable for drainage. Water could overflow!

The end of the drainage hose must not

be submerged in the pumped-out water. Otherwise, the water could be sucked back into the unit.

– When hanging in a wash basin or a bath tub, the drainage hose must be secured with the supplied attachable bend to prevent it slipping. The backsurge force of the escaping water could otherwise force the hose out of the basin.

0 Tie the bend to the tap or the wall using a piece of string.

Delivery heads over 1m

To pump off the washing / rinsing solution, every washing machine has a drain pump which carries liquids up to a height of 1m via the drainage hose, calculated from the machine's standing surface.

Please contact Customer Service for delivery heads of over 1m.

In the chapter "What to do if...“ , some faults are listed which you can remedy yourself. Look there first if a fault occurs. If you do not find any information there, please consult your Customer Service. (You can find the addresses and telephone numbers in the section "Customer Service Centres“.)

Always prepare in advance for the discussion. By doing so you will simplify the diagnosis and the decision on whether customer service is necessary.

Note the PNC number and

S. number. You will find both on the rating plate on the inside of the door of your washing machine.

PNC .....................................................

S. No. .....................................................

Answer as precisely as possible:

What form does the fault take?

Under what circumstances does the fault occur?

When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?

If you could have remedied the fault yourself with the aid of the fault table (see the section "What to do if..."),

If several journeys by the customer service technician are necessary because for example he did not receive all the important information before his visit and must collect spare parts. These multiple trips can be avoided if you prepare your phone call as described above.
