** Is there a best way to flush out the "crud"? **

I've never heard a recommended method. Some technicians have said they've had pretty good luck with a piece of bent wire. I don't know if maybe you could find a long pipe-cleaner type brush which could be used?

** or should i NOT put water in that air dome? **

The bottom of the air dome is open to the outer tub. As water in the tub rises it forces air higher into the dome and eventually up the tube to the pressure switch. Any water (and chemicals, etc.) you put in the dome will eventually end up in the washer (until it gets drained).

After cleaning, before you reattach the tubing, make sure most of the water is out of the machine. If the water level is too high, not enough air will be in the air dome to activate the water level control switch.
