How to get dried dough out of a pasta maker?

The caption says it all. A little bit of dough (well, maybe more than a little) ended up **inside** my Imperia 150. It's dried out now, and by rolling and shaking the machine vigorously I was able to get out most of the chunks. But I can still hear a couple of pieces rattling around inside, and don't want them to emerge in the middle of a batch of fettuccine.

It's evident that the manufacturer did not intend for the end-user to disassemble this machine, and reassembly would presumably be a challenge. On the other hand, there doesn't seem to be any other way to get rid of these little nuggets of moldy dough.
