I have a similar one

I have a similar book at home. I think it might be a little earlier. Covers models L5 and DL1? Something like that--I'm a little fuzzy.
Anyway, it's pretty thorough. Goes in depth about how to add soap and how and when to add water softener, and how much of each kind, etc. etc. The "demonstrator" was supposed to fill in this information in the booklet. Did you know that when you bought a Laundramat, a home economist was supposed to show up at your house and teach you how to use it? Thought that was pretty cool.
The other cool thing about this book is that it's a laundry "cookbook". Instructions for laundering different kinds of things are called recipes. There's even a separate recipe for how to wash powder puffs!
Now THAT'S thorough!
