Question about Amana ALW780QA
My washing machine wont stop filling up. Thus causing flooding. what can i do ?
Somewhere attatched to the tub/lower water hose is something called a pressure chamber- this will need cleaning out. its identified by a plastic/rubber tube leading from it to a higher switch/unit. in the first instance you can blow some compressed air down the tube to see if that helps. it seems that you may need to do more hot washes. remember isolate machine.

When i checked the intake and found it clean, I noticed a tube running running from the bottom of the bowl to the water level swith location.
I removed this tube and blew through it and found it had perished.
This tube is a air pressure switch which turns the water off.
Cut ends of tube and reattach.
Fixed in less than an hour.
Hope this helps

This isnt a suggestion just a reply this information was quiet handy for me as i had the same problem thinking i would have to get a repair man or a new one the only difference with mine was the hose somehow managed to come away from the chamber at the bottom. i turned the washing machine over and put it back on. hurray washing machine fills at the set level and finally have a working machine again
