I found this and it also may have to do with the door seals...how 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 issues...as 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.

LXi H machines do not have rubber door seals, they have overlapping baffles to allow breathing of wash tank. If the leak occurs from no use over a period of time, you will have a dirty or worn fill vale letting water trickle into the wash tank. LX's don't have an overflow as they rely on probes and a machine turned on to control the water level. Repair kit is available, but it may just be some scale or dirt holding the seat open.

    I have an LX18 and the solenoid part of the drain is operational (looked at it move, checked voltage during operation, all normal) but something in the drain valve assembly, is letting all the water drain out during the wash cycle. Is physical removal and inspection of drain unit the next best step? Any tips on that parts inside valve?

Just had the same problem and had to level the machine. It was tilted slightly more forward and the water level probes are in the back so it was overfilling. When I leveled the machine it solved the problem. I also agree with the answer about the fill valve leaking by slightly. The error code is one I don't know. Hope this helps.

Out Profile Artica Model PS25NGMD will leak water from the bottom of the fridge on occasion. When it leaks it leaks a lot. Sometimes it will go days without leaking and then leak a lot.


If you remove the bottom kick panel below the doors you will see a connector that connects the water supply for the door to the tube coming out of the bottom of the door. Take it off / on might get a good seal if not you should be able to buy another. I found a couple places online that have all the parts to this model.

Water leaks from underneath and sometimes get error code 21


Hi, open up the door and with a flashlite look down and into the rubber boot. See if there are any cuts or holes. If so the boot needs to be replaced. Contact your local supply house for parts. If this is ok, remove bottom cover and watch with flashlite while unit is running for further leaks. Hope this helps

Every Couple of Days water leaks out from under the freezer. I bought it from Home Depot about 2 months ago. What do I do now?


every 8 hours of cooling ( compressor run time ) which may be every cople of days the frig has a auto defrost . your unit may use a a d control so it may do it an any time it decides to defrost . when defrosting the water goes through a drain and under the frig to a holding pan . if pan is cracked or if drain hose is not in the pan it would leak .. it should be under warranty so i would call maytag and im shure they will correct the problem .. mope this helps mm ..majic **** ...

Lately when i run my dishwasher, it leaks from the front but i can't seem to pinpoint where the leak is coming from


If the water is not overflowing the bottom due to a bad float/switch, check the perimeter door seals for any damage. There is usually no seal at the bottom of the door. Check around the pump and associated hoses for any signs of leakage. Make sure that the latch is holding the door tightly while operating.

Dish washer over filling?


The first thing you should do is clean the level probes in the unit. There are two probes sticking through the back of the unit and the water completes a circuit between these two telling the machine when it is full. If they are clean, you may have a faulty sensor or wiring.

Leaks while running


The water at the bottom is normal if you open it during the cycle. Leak means you need to replace the L-shaped black, molded gasket that is in the lower left or right of your door opening. Replacement is easy - requires no tools. Part can be purchased for about $10 each at Sears parts department.

Something leaking from dispenser frame


You can remove the frame around the dispenser by pulling it gently and then you access to the screws that hold the dispenser in place. Could be a spillage behind the frame. Good Luck.
