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.

Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the shower if necessary.
â¢ Close the small cover and re-insert correctly the
reservoir â¢ Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow stop downwards to lock firmly it
â¢ Close the small door and press the
button again to allow the programme to continue.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff. Clean the rubber seal round the condenser cabinet and in the inner part of the small door with a damp cloth. Important! Do not use pointed objects or utensils to clean the spaces between the plates, as this could damage the condenser and make it permeable. Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops upwards and close the door. Do not use this appliance if the condenser has not been fitted.
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 drum
When your laundry does not reach the desired degree of dryness, in other words, when it turns out either too dry or too damp,we advise you to clean the inside of the drum with a cloth soaked with vinegar. This will eliminate the slight patina that has formed in the drum (due to residues of detergent and softeners used in the washing, and to the lime contained in the water), which prevents the probes from detecting the correct degree of dryness.
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 buzzer will sound for 1 minute. The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of a programme. Proceed as follows: â¢ Open the small door at the lower part of the cabinet â¢ Turn the yellow stop upwards â¢ Pull out the reservoir â¢ Open the small cover and let water flow down
Cleaning the air intake grille
Using a vacuum cleaner remove the fluff from the air intake grille at the back of the appliance.
