I'm so glad I was able to find a site to download my missing manuals. Very reasonable prices and they kept me informed about the process and I had my manual within less than a day. The only thing I wish was an option is a 100% English version with no spanish or anything. But overall great site.
The manual is complete with excellent quality! One suggestion, show number of pages and weather it is multi-lingual. The AD 600 Manuel is about 76 pages and over half is non English. This results in a larger print job than usually needed. Having this information, one could select the desired pages for printing.
This is an excellent handbook. We had no information on the appliance until we obtained this and are now able to use the appliance to its full potential. Strongly recommended.

HINTS AND TIPS
You are advised not to leave your laundry too long, especially when damp. Damp laundry produces moult and unpleasant smells. Moult stains cannot be removed. Sort your laundry. Study carefully the chart in this booklet explaining the symbols used on clothes labels (see page 6). The following points are particularly important : - a line under the bowl means that the garment cannot be washed using programmes for resistant fabrics such as cotton and linen; - do not mix coloured garments with whites; - anticrease materials like polyester/cotton should be treated as synthetics; - non-resistant fabrics like acrylic and most curtain materials should be treated as delicate fabrics; - the wool programme is designed specifically for pure new wool. Other types of wool and wool mixtures may shrink or felt if machine-washed. Woollen garments should be spun briefly immediately after washing. Temperatures We suggest that white cotton and linen, if it is not excessively soiled, can be washed at 60Â° instead of 90Â°C. There should be no reduction in performance, but there will be an energy saving of approximately 30%. The same applies to a lesser extent to fast coloured garments. They usually require a temperature of 60Â°C but if they are not excessively dirty, you will have satisfactory results at 40Â°C. Garments with non-fast colours should not be washed at temperatures above 40Â°C. If fast and non-fast colours are washed together, they should be treated as non-fast colours and therefore the temperature should not exceed 40Â°C. Resistant white and coloured synthetics can normally be washed at 60Â°C but also in this case 40Â°C is sufficient if the laundry is not excessively dirty. Delicate synthetics, synthetics with non-fast colours and woollen garments must never be washed above 40Â°C. As you already know, your washing machine can also wash with cold water. However, it must be remembered that the detergents currently on the market have not been designed for cold washes and that in winter, when the water is very cold,
