Re: leak help

Must remove side covers and inspect where leat is comming from. most common is the main motor or drain pump. possibly a small hole in the pressure switch pipe if it has one.

My dishwasher is leaking from the bottom of the front door. I can't seem to get to the drain filter. Can that be removed? I think there may be a clog in it.

If the leak is from the bottom of the front door than it is most likely the door seal. If the leak is from beneath the unit and appearing to leak out from the front there are many sources for the water.

Check the seal around the door. It may have some residue that has collected prohibiting the seal. The water in the machine actually sits in a tub. The seal on the door prohibits the water leaking as the spray arm rotates.

To test the door seal start the cycle and stop the unit as soon as the machine begins the spray cycle. Open the door and observe that the tub is full but still below the edge. Dry the seal around the door. Place colored paper towels or cloth beneath the door as close to the door seal as possible, Continue with the cycle and observe for water leaks. Stop allow the unit to sit a few seconds open door and observe the seal. You are looking for the location that it is leaking.

If you can confirm that the seal is leaking you can purchase replacement seals, On some models they can be easily replaced.

In my experience I have not seen a filter in the return line. If there is a blocked return hose the unit would not leak. The tub would remain filled after the cycle. There is an overflow switch that prohibits the tub from overfilling if the tub has not emptied between cycles.

Maytag washing machine leaking water

Hey, Maytags never need servicing!, or so the advertising used to say. However, a leak is really not a "machine" problem, it is a plumbing problem: If it is leaking from a door seal (all the way around the door including the bottom edge), replace or reglue the door seal. If it is filling up too high inside, it may cause excessive pressure on that seal. If, however, the leak is between the machine drain and the floor pipe, you will need to pull out the machine and inspect the seals...change as necessary...have fun!

I have a Whirlpool Gold GU3600XTSY0 Model. There is slow water leak from the right side bottom front of the dishwasher. It looks like the water is leaking from a sensor on the bottom. The sensor has a...

I would look at the door seal being a problem as well. if the water level float were leaking, it would be worse then just a little water. The door seal is always the first to go. these seal can be replaced by pulling the old one off and pushing the new one back in place. should be able to buy new seal from the people the unit can be bought from.

Leaks water from bottom of door. Error code E7 ?

I found this and it also may have to do with the door old is the unit...if door seals get old and stiff..(not soft and pliable) they sometimes leak...after usage the heat and moisture may cause them to swell and or become soft thereby sealing better...but this is what I found in the user manual.

Machine displays "E7" on LX30 model or "CLEAN PROBE" on LX40 model.
1. Clean water sensors inside tank.
It suggests contacting Hobart if this fails but I also found this problem is associated with fill in an E4 error...this what you do in that case....

Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

Good Luck and I hope this helps...let me know if it doesn't and i am sure I can get to the bottom of it...thanks for rating my effort...the Fang.

Leaking dishwasher

what sort of soap powder do you use
some soap powders foam a lot in machine causing dishwasher to leak through seals
also check that the machine is square that is the door is closing parallel with cabinet
do not use power balls in machine just standard dishwasher detergent and separate rinse aid
