Amana LWC 40 AW Pressure Switch
« on: January 02, 2011, 07:25:48 PM »
My washing machine leaks only in the Extra-Large-Load setting.  Seems to be OK in both Small and Medium size loads.

Leads me to believe the pressure switch  - Pat=rt # 40077201 - is faulty.

Is this a reasonable conclusion?
Could there be something else I should look at first?

Is this a "serviceable part"?

I have found prices ranging from $7.50 to $92.00 on the web.

The less expensive sellers are in the USA and I am in Canada (postal code K0L 1S0) - their web sites indicate they only ship in the USA.

I was planning on trying to contact a seller by phone to ask about shipping to Canada ($84 +  is a pretty big differential).

Any suggestions regarding a Canadian supplier who is charging a reasonable price would be appreciated.

Thanks Bob

It won't hurt to remove the pressure tubing and blow out the trash that is accumulated in the tub. That might be all it takes.
