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.
The manuel was exactly what I needed and I received it promptly. Thanks

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Important: You must disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply, before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance work.
Emptying the water reservoir
Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a reservoir. The reservoir must be emptied after each drying cycle to ensure efficient operation when the machine is next used. If this is not done a safety device trips: pilot light on the control panel comes on and the programme stops, leaving the laundry damp. The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of a programme.
Use only soap and water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Important: Never use abrasive or caustic products.
Cleaning the filter
The tumble dryer cannot operate efficiently with a clogged filter. The filter collects all the fluff which forms during drying and it is therefore essential to remove and clean this filter after each drying programme.
You should not be alarmed by the amount of fluff which collects on the filter; this is due to normal wearing of the fabrics dried and not to incorrect operation of your machine. Rubbing of the fibres during normal wear and washing forms fluff. If laundry is dried on a line, this fluff simply flies away, whereas inside the tumble dryer it collects together and swells considerably as a result of the drying action.
The reservoir must be re-inserted correctly. Handy tip: The condensed water may be used in a steam iron or to top up a battery, etc. In this case it must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter).
Cleaning the condenser unit
Clean the air condenser periodically, 3 or 4 times a year depending on how frequently the dryer is used. Pull out the condenser, holding it at the top, and remove all fluff. Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the shower if necessary.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff. Clean the rubber seal round the porthole door and the seal of the condenser in the inner door with a damp cloth.
