The Owner's manual was very helpful. The WEGA is about 35 years old and needed repair.
Your Website is pretty good und easily to handle.

Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to empty out the machine: â¢ pull out the plug from the power socket; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; â¢ place a bowl on the floor; â¢ put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water come out.
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. â¢ Place the end of the drain hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor. â¢ Select programme âPâ and run it until the machine stops. â¢ Remove the plug from the socket. â¢ 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, breakage of the affected parts. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C.
