Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.
Great to be able to set channels again, on an old but stoll fine working TV

Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain pipe are clogged), proceed as follows to empty out the machine: â¢ pull out the plug from the power socket; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled; â¢ place a bowl on the floor; â¢ put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water out. Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come out slowly. At the end screw the filter again.
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. â¢ Place the end of the drain hose and the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor. â¢ Select the âDRAINâ programme âCâ and run it until the machine stops. â¢ Turn the programme selector dial to O (RESET). â¢ Remove the plug from the power socket. â¢ Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its place. By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding ice forming and consequently damage to the appliance. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C.
