Re: dehumidifier leakage

My dehumidifier leaked after about one year of perfect operation. I unscrewed the face plate exposing the cooling grill and found out that debris was blocking the drainage hole that fed into the water bucket. The debris came from zip ties used to bunch some wires together. Apparently they got brittle (from the constant cooling and warming?), fell apart and managed to make it's way to the drainage hole. Cleared it out and worked fine again.

Re: dehumidifier leakage

Dehumidifier Leaks Water If water drips or pools at the base of your dehumidifier: 1) Disconnect the power. 2) Check the pan or reservoir and empty it if necessary, or make sure the drain isn't clogged. 3) Straighten any kinks or bends in the unit's hose. 4) If it still leaks, check and/or replace the overflow switch. Then, if necessary, call an appliance repairperson or take the unit into an appliance repair shop.

My dehumidifier is leaking from the bottom. Was working fine. Bucket is only collecting about an inch of water. any suggestions

The problem is due to clogged tubing inside the unit. To solve the problem, do the following:

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers

I hope I was able to help you solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dehumidifier' problem

1. Very few companies manufacture their own dehumidifiers. 2. Due to cost concerns, the coils are made of steel (not something like stainless steel) and will rust / corode, causing refrigerant leakage, often times after only a couple of seasons. 3. Maytag is not the Maytag of 15 years ago. They cheapend their product to lower cost, looking for increased sales, and have been bought out by Whirlpool.

Dehumidifier leaks

Either there is a hole/leak in the tray, or the drain line is clogged. You are giong to have to access the tray to determine this: standing water is plugged line and no water is busted pan. This will determine your avenue of approach.....

Water in the floor

Not sure what you are calling the "collector". Most of the time, problems like this are caused by a build up of gunk at the point where the water, which has condensed and dripped down into a tray, leave the try and is suppose to go either into the water bucket or out the drain hose if that is attached. Because this area gets plugged up, the water has to go some where else, which results in leakage over the side of aforementioned tray.
The best solution is to remove all the covers to get to this drain area and clean it out, but that is a pain to do. I'd suggest trying to run a pipe cleaner or nylon wire tie back up into the area where the water is suppose to leave the dehumidifier on it's way to the bucket or hose. Flushing some water back that way with a turkey baster might work also, but would result in some splashing, causing a little additional temporary leakage.

Dehumidifier leakage

I was under the impression that the drain hose connected to the bucket with a screw on connection such as with a garden type hose.

Won't drain into hose

If you can't get the manual for that on line, look for where the hose should be plugged in and plug it back in or replace it with another hose.
