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. Great stuff.

 ADW750EAW WHIRLPOOL Owner's Manual by Frank Dituri;
Thanks to! 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.

Notes • If stations are already stored, the newly preset stations replace the old ones when the above procedure is completed. • If stations cannot be preset automatically, preset stations manually.

On water resistance
• Before opening or closing the cassette holder, be sure to wipe off water, dust or sand on the exterior of the Walkman. (The Walkman is not water-resistant with the cassette holder open.) • Since water in the headphones/earphones jack may cause rust, cover it with the attached rubber cap when the headphones/ earphones are not in use. • Since the Walkman is airtight, you may not be able to open the cassette holder because of sudden change in air pressure inside the Walkman, which happens after being transported on a plane or moving from a warm place to a cold place. To open the cassette holder see “Troubleshooting”. • The supplied headphones/earphones are not meant to be immersed in water or come in continuous contact with water. If they are accidentally dropped into water or get wet, dry them with a soft cloth. Never use an electric hair dryer. • If the Walkman or the headphones/earphones are immersed in salt water, be sure to wash them in non-running fresh water. Never wash them under running water, and never use soap or detergent. • Any sand or dust on the rubber packing will prevent the cassette holder from closing tightly, and water may leak in. Brush off the dust once in a while. • We recommend the packing to be changed every year. Replacement packing is available at an authorized Sony Service Facility.
