Haunted by the Candy Aquamatic 3!

Some of you may remember my early trials and tribulations with my Candy Aquamatic 3. Eventually, after much experimentation and the help of a flashlight, I mastered this ancient washing machine, and I actually grew to be quite fond of her!

Imagine my surprise to receive the following e-mail message yesterday:

"Hi,

I'm sorry to bother you with such a silly demand, you're probably a very busy person, being a professor and all, but do you remember writing this:

http://dvc-in-italy.blogspot.com/2007/02/laundry-day.html

This is the only instructions I could *ever* find about this washing machine in the entire Internet! I'm living in Italy (Trento, TN) and I got that machine in my appartment and I have no clue how to operate it!

Did you ever find a manual or instructions for it? Is there any clues you could give me? Anything at all, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks in advance and sorry again for bothering you about this.

VĂ­tor Souza"


Well, I was more than happy to help Vitor out! After all, I too remember how temperamental this little machine can be! If you're interested in my reply, just click the link in Vitor's message above.

Vitor, I hope that you get your Candy Aquamatic 3 working, and I wish you the best of luck. By the way, I should also admit that I'm just a little envious that you're there in Italy, struggling with this machine. You've brought back such fond memories!

Tuscany is a majestic, enchanting place. Where else can you drink wine relaxing in the vineyard it was grown, sleep in historic villas, and learn to cook from master chefs. Take a look at some of my photos at http://www.tuscanway.com/tuscany/photos/. Enjoy!
