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“).

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).

Draining of the water after Rinse Hold and Spin, or separate Spin for hand-washed Cottons/Linen.

ECO (ENERGY SAVING)

Energy and water saving wash at approx. 60 °C for lightly to normally soiled Cottons/Coloureds (cottons/linen) with an extended wash time (cannot be combined with the ]/QUICK option).

Programme Option Buttons

The programme option buttons are used to adapt

the programme to suit the degree of soiling of the wash. The programme options are not needed for

normally soiled washing. The different functions can be combined together,

depending on the programme.

k(PRE-WASH)

Warm pre-wash before the main wash, which follows automatically; intermediate spin in the

t(COTTONS/LINEN) and }(EASY CARES) programme; no intermediate spin in the à (DELICATES) programme.

ä(STAIN)

For heavily soiled or stained washing. In-wash stain treatment products are washed in at the optimum time as the programme progresses.

Can only be selected with wash temperatures of 40 °C and above, as stain treatment products are only effective at higher temperatures.

1)Note: Programme setting for testing in accordance with standard EN60 456. 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.
