Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier
My dehumidifier is probably 5 years old. I have had it repaired once at the local Maytag repair shop. Now it is overflowing in the floor. I do not have it
hooked into a drain. The bucket fills and it doesn't cut off. It remains on and keeps removing water, then continullay overflows unless I remember to go downstairs and empty it. Then I have to put the shop vac hose in the bucket to remove some of the water so that I can empty the bucket. Also **** up all the water in my basement floor. What is the matter? I know that it needs cleaned and the little thingly in the bucket is in place. Can I use a hose into a basement sink? Will it drain if the sink is higher than the dehumidifier? I'll admit I am a little dumb here.
I have a drain in the basement floor but I really don't want to remove the
plug and put a hose in it. Can you advise me?????
Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact. Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine. If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself. It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger. The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced. (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)
