Instructions for use

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

1 Safety

The safety of AEG electrical appliances conforms to the recognised technical regulations and the legislation covering the safety of appliances. However, as manufacturers, we still regard it as our responsibility to inform you of the following safety information.

Before Putting into Operation for the First Time

Refer to the ”Installation and Connection Instructions” later in this user information.

When the unit is delivered in winter months with minus temperatures: Store the washing machine for 24 hours at room temperature before putting it into operation.

Correct Use

The washing machine is only designed for normal domestic washing. If the unit is used for purposes other than that for which it is designed, the manufacturer can accept no liability for any resulting damages.

For safety reasons, conversions or modifications to the washing machine are not permissible.

Use only detergents which are suitable for washing machines. Follow the washing detergent manufacturer's instructions.

The washing must not contain any flammable solvents. Also remember this when washing pre-cleaned washing.

Do not use the washing machine for chemical cleaning.

Dyes/dye removers may only be used in washing machines if the manufacturer expressly allows these products. We cannot be held liable for any resulting damage.

Use only water from the water mains. Use rainwater or service water only if it meets the requirements outlined in DIN1986 and DIN1988.

Frost damage is not covered by the warranty! If the washing machine is in a room which is at risk from frost, an emergency emptying operation must be carried out when there is a frost risk (see the section ”Carry Out Emergency Emptying”).

6

Instructions for use

Child Safety

Packaging components (e.g. films, polystyrene) can be hazardous to children. Risk of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.

Children often cannot recognise the hazards associated with handling electrical appliances. Therefore, ensure the necessary supervision during operation and do not allow children to play with the washing machine – there is a risk that children can get trapped inside.

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

When disposing of the washing machine: Pull out the mains plug, destroy the door lock, cut off the electrical supply lead and throw away the plug and the left-over cable. This means that children at play cannot shut themselves inside and in so doing be in danger.

General Safety

Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by skilled persons. Incorrect repairs can cause significant hazards. If repairs are necessary, consult our Customer Service or your specialist dealer.

Never put the washing machine into operation if the mains cable is damaged or if the control panel, work top or base area are damaged in such a way that the inside of the unit is open and 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 LS switch in the fuse box or completely unscrew the screw-in fuse.

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 fire risk with overheating!

Do not spray down the washing machine with a water jet. Electric shock risk!

The glass in the filling door becomes hot in the case of washing programs with high temperatures. Do not touch!

Allow the washing solution to cool down before emergency emptying of the unit, before cleaning or before emergency opening of the filling door.

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.

7

Instructions for use

2 Disposal

Dispose the packing material!

Dispose of your washing machine's packaging correctly. All packaging materials are environmentally compatible and can be disposed of without risk or incinerated at a refuse combustion plant.

The plastics can also be reused:

The outer sleeve and the bags are made of polyethylene (code >PE<).

The cushioned parts are made of foamed, CFC-free polystyrene (code >PS<).

The card parts were made from recylced paper and should also be returned in the waste paper collection.

Dispose the old appliance!

When you finally put your appliance out of operation,

please bring it to your nearest recycling centre or to your dealer.

2Environment Tips

The pre-wash cycle is not required for averagely dirty washing. This saves washing powder/liquid, water and time (and does not harm the environment).

The washing machine is especially economical when you fully utilise the stated filling quantities.

For small amounts of washing, use only half to two thirds the recommended amount of washing powder/liquid.

Suitable pretreatment enables stains and small amounts of dirt to be removed. You can then wash at a lower temperature.

Use the energy-saving program to wash garments which are lightly to moderately dirty.

There is often no need for conditioner. Try it once! If you use a dryer, your washing will become soft and velvety even without conditioner.

In the case of medium to high water hardness, (hardness range II or higher, see ”Washing and Care Agents”), you should use water softener.

The washing powder/liquid can then always be metered for hardness range I (= soft).

Instructions for use

What Does ”Update” Mean?

The washing programs of your washing machine are controlled by software.

New types of textiles or new washing powders/liquids could, in the future, require new washing programs. The software can be adapted to these in most cases.

When new washing programs are available, you can also use them in your washing machine by having the software updated.

For further information on the ”Update”, consult the Customer Service. You can also ask the Customer Service about the costs of an ”Update”.

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 (COTTONS/WITTE WAS, BLANC 95 °C, with half the amount of washing detergent). This removes residues left over from production on the drum and solution container.

14

Instructions for use

Prepare the Washing Cycle

Sort and Prepare the Washing

Sort the washing according to care codes and type (see ”Washing Types and Care Codes”).

Empty pockets.

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

To prevent washing damage and washing snags: Close zip fasteners, button closed bed covers and pillow cases, and tie together ribbons, e.g. on aprons.

Use clothing made of double-layer fabric (sleeping bag, anorak etc.).

On knitted, coloured textiles and on wool and textiles with fitted decorations: Turn inside out.

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

Treat curtains with particular care. Remove small metal rollers or small, burred rollers or tie them in a net or in a bag. We cannot accept any liability for damage.

Do not wash coloureds and whites together in one washing cycle. Otherwise, whites will discolour or turn grey.

New coloureds often contain surplus dye. It is best to wash such items separately the first time.

Mix small and large items of washing! This speeds up theeffect of washing and the washing is more favourably distributed during spinning.

Loosen up the washing before loading it into the washing machine.

Put the washing into the drum folded out.

Pay attention to the care instructions ”Wash separately” and ”Wash separately several times”!

15

Instructions for use

Washing Types and Care Codes

The care codes help you choose the correct washing program. The washing should be sorted according to type and care code. The temperatures stated in the care codes are all maximum values.

Cottons ç

Textiles made of cotton and linen with this care code are insensitive to mechanical stress and high temperatures. The program COTTONS/LINEN (WITTE/BONTE WAS, BLANC/COULEURS) is suitable for this type of washing.

Linen è ë

Textiles made of cotton and linen with this care code are insensitive to mechanical stresses. The program COTTONS/LINEN (WITTE/BONTE WAS, BLANC/COULEURS) is suitable for this type of washing.

Easy-Care Garments ê í

Textiles such as finished cottons, cotton mixtures, viscose and synthetics with this care code require mechanically more mild treatment. The program EASY-CARES/EASY IRON (KREUKHERSTELLEND, DEFROISSABLE/STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE) is suitable for this type of washing.

Delicates ì

Textiles such as layered fibres, microfibres, viscose, synthetics and curtains with this care code require very gentle treatment. The program DELICATES (FIJNE WAS, LINGE DELICAT) is suitable for this type of washing.

Wool and Very Sensitive Washing 9 ì ï

Textiles such as wool, wool mixtures and silk with this care code are especially sensitive to mechanical stresses. The program WOOLLENS (WOL, LAINE)/P (handwash) is suitable for this type of textiles.

Attention! Textiles with the care codeñ(Do not wash!) must not be washed in the washing machine!

16

Instructions for use

Washing Detergents and Care Agents

Which washing detergent and care agent?

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

How much washing 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 filling quantity

2If the detergent manufacturer gives no details of the dosing quantities for minimum loads, add one third less for half loads and, in the case of very small loads and for EASY IRON (STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE), only half the amount of detergent recommended for a full load.

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

Water Softener

For medium to high water hardness (hardness category II or higher) you should use water softener. Pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions. Always then meter detergent for hardness category I (= soft). The responsible water works can provide information on the local water hardness.

2Since the water softener is added before the main washing detergent, (water pre-softening), eighty percent of the softener quantity stated on the package is sufficient.

Instructions for use

If the washing result is not satisfactory

If the washing is grey and limescale forms in the drum

Not enough washing detergent added.

The right washing detergent was not used.

Special types of stain were not pretreated.

Program or temperature incorrectly set.

If binary wahing detergents were used, the individual components were not added in the correct ratio.

If there are still grey stains on the washing

Washing contaminated with creams, grease or oils was washing with too little detergent.

Washing at too low temperature.

A frequent cause is that conditioner – particularly concentrated form, ended up on the washing. Wash out such stains as quickly as possible and carefully use the right conditioner.

If foam is still visible after the final rinse

Modern washing detergents can still produce foam, even in the final rinse. The washing is still sufficiently rinsed.

If there are white residues on the washing

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

Shake or brush off the washing. Perhaps in future you should turn the washing before washing it. Check the choice of detergent and use a liquid detergent if necessary.

34

Instructions for use

Carry Out an Emergency Emptying Operation

When the washing machine no longer pumps off the washing solution, an emergency emptying operation must be carried out.

When the washing machine is in a room where there is a frost risk, an emergency emptying operation must be carried out when there is a frost risk.

Also: Unscrew the intake hose from the water tap and lay it on the floor. Empty the drainage hose.

3If RINSE+ (SPOELEN+, RINCAGE+) is set, an additional rinse is performed in the case of the programs COTTONS/LINEN (WITTE/BONTE WAS, BLANC/COULEURS), EASY-CARES (KREUKHERSTELLEND, DEFROISSABLE)/EASY IRON (STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE) and DELICATES (FIJNE WAS, LINGE DELICAT).

No additional rinse is set when the unit is delivered.

Set Additional Rinse:

01. Turn the program selector to COTTONS/LINEN (WITTE/BONTE WAS, BLANC/COULEURS), EASY-CARES/EASY IRON (KREUKHERSTELLEND, DEFROISSABLE/STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE) or DELICATES (FIJNE WAS, LINGE DELICAT) with any temperature.

2.Simultaneously keep the button PRE WASH (VOORWAS, PRELAV.) and the button QUICK WASH (KORT, COURT) pressed for at least 2 seconds. RINSE+ (SPOELEN+, RINCAGE+) lights up on the program run indicator. The additional rinse is set. It remains saved until you cancel it again.

3The additional rinse increases water consumption and the program run time.

Cancel Additional Rinse:

01. Again turn the program selector to COTTONS/LINEN (WITTE/BONTE WAS, BLANC/COULEURS), EASY-CARES/EASY IRON (KREUKHERSTELLEND, DEFROISSABLE /STRIJKVRIJ, SANS REPASSAGE) or DELICATES (FIJNE WAS, LINGE DELICAT).

2.Simultaneously keep the button PRE WASH (VOORWAS, PRELAV.) and the button QUICK WASH (KORT, COURT) pressed for at least 2 seconds. RINSE+ (SPOELEN+, RINCAGE+) goes out in the program run indicator. The additional rinse is cancelled.

Setting Up the Unit

3Washing machines with curved panels are not suitable for substructures.

Transporting the Unit

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

Never transport the unit without using the transport safeguard. Do not remove the transport safeguard until you reach the installation site. Transporting the unit without the transport safeguard can result in damage to the unit.

Never lift the unit by the open filling door or by its base.

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

Remove the Transport Safeguard

Attention! It is essential to remove the transport safeguard before putting the unit into operation! Keep all parts of the transport safeguard in a safe place for possible later transport (moving house).

0 1. Open both hose holders on the rear of the unit and remove the hoses and the mains cable.

Setting up and connection instructions

Prepare the Installation Location

The installation surface must be clean, dry and free of floor wax residue and other lubricating coatings so that the unit does not slide away. Do not use any lubricants as sliding aids.

It is not recommended to set up the washing machine on deep-pile carpets or on floor coverings with soft foam underlays, as this would mean that the stability of the unit would not be guaranteed.

Use ordinary rubber mats as underlays in locations with small-format tiles.

Never use wood, card or similar underlays to compensate for minor floor unevenness. Always use the adjustable screw-type feet of the machine.

If, for reasons of space, it is not possible to avoid setting up the unit next to a gas cooker or coal stove: Insert a thermally-insulating panel between the washing machine and the cooker (85 x 57cm). This panel must have an aluminium foil 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 damage!

• The intake and drainage hoses must not be bent or pinched.

Setting Up on a Concrete Pedestal

When setting up the washing machine on a concrete pedestal, it is essential for safety reasons to fit stand plates in which the washing machine is then adjusted. The stand plates are available from the Customer Service under spare part number 645 425 058.

Setting Up on a Vibrating floor

In the case of vibrating floors, especially wooden beam floors with flexible boards, securely screw a water-resistant wooden panel at least 15mm thick onto at least 2 of the floor beams. If possible, set up the unit in a corner of the room where the wooden floor is best firmly installed and is therefore least likely to be susceptible to vibrations.

43

Setting up 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 a range of +10 ... -5 mm.

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

threaded 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.

Attention! Never compensate for minor floor unevenness with underlays made of wood, card etc. Always adjust the adjustable feet.

44

Setting up and connection instructions

Electrical Connection

Refer to the rating plate for details of the mains voltage, current type and the necessary fuses. The rating plate is located at the top behind the filling door.

; This unit conforms to the following EU directives:

the ”Low Voltage Directive" 73/23/EU with changes

the ”EMC Directive" 89/336/EWG with changes

Water Connection

3The washing machine has safety features which prevent contamination of the drinking water and which conform to the legal regulations of the water authorities (e.g. for Germany: DVGW regulations). Other protection measures in the installation are therefore not necessary.

Attention!

Units for connection to cold water must not be connected to hot water!

Use only new sets of hoses for connection!

Permissible Water Pressure

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

In the case of more than 10bar: Connect a pressure-reducing valve upstream.

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

45

Setting up and connection instructions

Water Inflow

A pressure hose 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.

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

Sets of hoses in lengths of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.9m are available for washing machines with Aqua-Control.

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

3Sealing rings are supplied either in the plastic nuts of the hose screw connection or in the

enclosed pack. Do not use other seals!

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

Attention!

– Do not lay the supply hose vertically downwards. Rather, turn it to the right or left as shown in the diagram.

– Only tighten the screw connection manually.

2. Connect the hose with the

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

Attention! Only tighten the screw connection manually.

46

Setting up and connection instructions

Water Drainage

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

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

Attention! It is absolutely essential to install the drainage hose free of pinches.

Water Drainage into a Siphon

The grommet on the end of the hose fits all commonly used siphon types.

0 Secure the grommet/siphon connecting point with a hose clamp.

Draining the water into a basin

Attention!

Small basins are not suitable for draining the water into them. Water could overflow!

It is not permitted to submerge the

end of the drainage hose into the pumped-off water. Water could be sucked up into the hose!

– When hooked into a wash-basin or a bath tub the drainage hose must be protected from slipping out of place by the supplied slip-on elbow. Otherwise the repelling power of the draining water can press the hose out of the sink.

0 Fix the elbow to the water tap or to the wall with string.

Service

SERVICE

In the section ”What to do if ...” there is a list of some faults which you can remedy yourself. Look there first if a fault occurs. If you find no information there, please consult your Customer Service Centre.

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 the

S-number. Both can be found on the rating plate on the inside of the door on 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 dealt with the fault yourself with the aid of the Faults Table (see the section ”What to do if ...”),

if several trips by the customer service technician are necessary because he had not received all the necessary information before his visit and must now e.g. fetch spare parts. These multiple trips can be avoided if you prepare your phone call as described above.
