Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.

How to wash
This appliance is designed for saving water. However, for people with a very delicate skin (allergic to detergents) it may be necessary to rinse the laundry using an extra quantity of water (extra rinse). The extra rinse is available only with the cotton, synthetics or delicate programme.
Selection of the EXTRA RINSE option
Press simultaneously PREWASH and QUICK WASH buttons for about 2 seconds: the EXTRA RINSE light in the programme progress display comes on. This function stays permanently on. To remove it press PREWASH and QUICK WASH buttons again until the EXTRA RINSE light comes off.
Selection of the DELAYED START option
To delay starting of a programme, press the DELAYED START button before starting the machine. The figures corresponding to the selected delay will be displayed for about 5 seconds, after which the duration of the selected programme will appear on the display. If the SOAK button has been pressed the selected delay will correspond to the soak time. If no delay time is selected the soak programme will last about 30 minutes. When the START/PAUSE button is pressed, the selected delay will appear again on the display and the machine starts its countdown.
