Connie, we have had a Welbilt machine ever since they first came out and love it. We still use it fairly often. As for getting a manual, I did a google search specifically for bread machine manuals. Several sites popped up, but I thought this one was the best: http://www.breadmachinedigest.com/b ... neric-bread-machine-instructions.php
It has a lot of very useful information, and for a manual go to the archives. They have all (most ?) of the different brands listed. Click on "Welbilt" and several different models are displayed. Click on yours and there you are. Good luck!

I was given a Welbilt Bread Machine by my Mother-In-Law who hadn't used it in years. It seems like it would be a great bread maker, except I don't have any user manuals or anything to go with it. The company went out of business a while ago, and I've had no luck with google on getting much. Do any of you have some basic instructions for it or anything? Its model number: ABM 3900. I've seen instructions for the 3800 and 4400 models, but I have a feeling they'd be a bit different.
You said that you saw directions for ABM 3800 and that yours is number 3900. if they both make the same size loaf and they both have the same shape pan, then I would certainly try using the 3800 directions. After all, after you put in the ingredients, the machine does the rest of the work. Is there an illustration of parts that you can compare?
One little tip: make a note and tape it to your machine reminding yourself to attach the plastic blade to the base of the pan before putting in your ingredients. I have forgotten this step and had to scoop out the dough mixture and start all over again!
I think Joan gave some good advice. Also you might do a search on ebay to see if anyone is selling an instruction manual for your machine. Perhaps a thriftyfun member has the same machine and would be nice enough to make a copy of her manual and send to you or atleast post enough info here for you to make a simple loaf of bread. I know I misplaced the manual/cookbooklet for my old Rival crock pot. I looked high and low for it and finally I went on ebay and sure enough someone was selling that exact cookbooklet with all my favorite recipes.
I don't suppose your mother in law knows where the manual is, does she? Does she remember how to use the bread machine at least? I guess you wouldn't be asking here.
Well good luck!
I Goggled "Welbilt Bread Machine Recipes" and got this site that has some recipes and instructions, places to order parts, etc.
Hope this will be of some help to you.

Hi, I found this link with some information..For the bread machine..Here it is..I hope this helps..MaryC
Go to www.craigslist.com & then click on your state & then your city or the nearest one to yours. Go to the wanted column & put in your request. I have used craigslist for about 3 years & have had great luck in obtaining so many items.
I have 8 different bread machines and I use the same recipe with all of them. Just add the liquid first and then the rest.
This link has manuals for several Welbilt ABMs, but not the 3900: http://welbiltmanuals.blogspot.com/
I'm guessing you can look at the pictures and find one very much like the 3900. Good luck!
I actually have the Welbilt bread machine, and my instructions have said to always add the DRY ingredients first, in this order:
Some of these items are not in all recipes...just keep in mind if the recipe lists all wet ingredients first, just read recipe from the bottom up. Good luck!
Thanks for all the great responses. I tried going with the instructions for the lower model, its close to what I have. I suppose its just trial and error though :p
Thanks for that bit of information though, sewcut! I had no idea dry ingredients would go first.
I need the instructions for a WELBILT Bread Machine ABM-100-3.

I have a Welbilt ABM-100-3 bread machine that I bought years ago. I believe that it was the first bread machine for sale in the USA, and they quit making it long ago. The same style machine was sold that made different size loaves, mine makes a 1-1/2 to 2 lb loaf, the others only made a 1 lb loaf. I'm not sure if the one that made smaller loaves had a different model number or not. I have the directions and recipe booklets for mine, and would be happy to copy them for you. E-mail me if you can't find them anywhere else. In this machine, always add the yeast 1st, followed by the remaining dry ingredients. The water gets put over the other ingredients (on top).

Just wanted to thank Nigella for giving the link to that website. I just bought a Welbilt bread machine at my local thrift shop with no directions. I think this site will be very helpful to me. I'm sure glad someone asked the right question and that so many of you had good answers. I am confused though because many people on other sites said wet ingredients first, some said yeast first, and others said dry ingredients first. I guess once I read the manual for my machine once I figure out which one it is I'll be able to figure out which goes first in my particular machine. But it's great having all this useful information at the touch of a computer keyboard button. :o) (10/01/2007)
Just moved to sea level from 9000 ft altitude and dusted off my Welbilt bread machine but there are no instructions to be found. Thanks for your input and wish me luck. After so many duds at high altitude, we're really looking forward to having home made bread again! Will let you know how it turns out!
Editor's Note: High altitude cooking is a whole new learning experience, especially baking. Here's a good link: http://urc.colostate.edu/titles/P41.html
They say: "High altitude has its most pronounced effect on the rising time of bread. At high altitudes, the rising period is shortened. Since the development of a good flavor in bread partially depends on the length of the rising period, it is well to maintain that period. Punching the dough down twice gives time for the flavor to develop.
In addition, flours tend to be drier and thus able to absorb more liquid in high, dry climates. Therefore, less flour may be needed to make the dough the proper consistency."

I would assume that you could put the dry or wet first, as long as they are separated. I did do this with my welbilt, I put the wet stuff on the bottom, dry on top, then the yeast. The loaf turned out great. I think the trick is to separate the liquids from the yeast, so either way should work fine. (12/28/2007)

Has all that you'll need. (01/07/2008)
There is a manual on Ebay that I saw, it is item number 150254042153 (06/05/2008)
For welbilt bread machine manuals go to the following site. It has manuals for almost all the welbilt machines in pdf.
Go to this site for Welbilt manuals. I finally found the manual for the ABM 3500, 8200, Y2K2, and 2H60 models. Good luck.
I have the instruction manual for the Welbilt bread machine, model ABM 100, in perfect condition, it technically belongs to my mom who said to post it, she'd like to have $6 for it, that would include postage, I can accept concealed cash, MO, or PayPal money transfer, anyone needing one feel free to email me if interested in it. The email used for posting on sites is bethetruth AT gmail.com.
TY so much for reading,
Wishing all a happy holiday,
I purchased a Welbilt bread machine with no manual on Fri. I logged onto the Hillbilly Housewife on Sat. They have general instructions on how to use a bread machine with no manual. I made bread that Sat. night no problem. Just place wet ingredients first, yeast last. I have the 3500. I made delicious whole wheat bread with only whole wheat flour. Hope this helps! (02/09/2009)
If your machine has a timer function, (and you intend to use it), you must add the yeast last. Wet items on the bottom, dry items on top, and yeast last. (02/27/2009)
Does anyone have any ideas where I can get recipes and directions (or the manual) for using the Welbilt ABMIH70 bread machine? Thanks.

By Laurie from Meredith, NH
I had a Welbilt bread machine given to me, with no instructions. The serial #-n516072764, the model number is ABM 2100.
Could you please tell me where to get a copy of the book for this machine? Thanks.
I don't know about a book, but Retrevo.com might help you get directions for it. (09/05/2010)
