Question about Haier 45-Pint Dehumidifier
The unit runs, but there isn't any water in the bucket no matter how long it runs or what humidity level it is set at.
You most likely have a freon leak, or the compressor is not running. When the machine first turns on you should be able to see if the compressor is running or if it is just the fan. If the compressor is not running it does have a start devise and a relay on it that can be replaced. If the compressor is bad, most units have a 5 year warranty on the compressor, so contact the manufacturer for warranty service. If the compressor is running you have a freon leak, and it would need to be found, repaired and the freon replaced. This is a large repair, estimated charge for a leak repair would be around $149.99 The reason is the long time it takes to find the leak, and all the parts needed. Drier, valve, freon, etc.. Good luck, and I hope it is only the relay. You can get those relitively inexpencively. 3 in 1 kits are also good for a hard to start compressor. They give the compressor a little more kick to start it. They are about $28.00 and easy to install once you are to the compressor. I hope this will FixYa.

I just fixed this same problem on my HD456 (which i've had for 3 years now). there was no water being collected in the bucket. my review of postings on this site led me to 3 prime suspects: fan, compressor, or freon system. there would a smell of water condensation and hints of moisture on the front vents. compressor sounded like it was running, and unit was heating up as expected. there was no noticable air flow from either front or back of the unit. and, also, when i shined a flashlight into the rear panel, i could see the fan blade having real trouble turning. in my case, the circular housing of the fan blades was brushing against the surface (closer to the motor). this was causing the fan not to circulate air properly. i simply moved the c-shaped compression ring on the fan rotary shaft further away from the motor, and that fixed the problem. also, a couple shots of wd-40 in some choice locations in and around the fan motor has greatly reduced the noise level during operation. it takes some work to actually get inside far enough to access the fan motor (and i ended up with two extra screws, not remembering from where i had removed them!), but it is well worth the effort (especially if you wipe up any residue that may have built up), because this is a simple fix and also lowers the noise. this model has gotten slammed with some bad reviews, but in all fairness, with a little tweaking it can be improved greatly (although, true, we consumers should not have to be the ones taking on the chore of fine tweaking Haier's production quality issues!)

If you trying to remove humidity, the setting or percentage of humidity to you want to remove should be set low. it's actually the humidity that will be left in the air. In the Hot Summer months, you want lower humidity, as opposed to the Winter months, when you want higher humidity.
"Plastic cup inside the bucket" - that's got me stumped. But, I suspect, it may be a float valve to turn the unit off, once the bucket reaches the full level. The water enters the bucket through a drain tube or hole from inside the dehumidifier, above the bucket.
By best advice, since this is a new unit, that you recently purchased, is read the Owners Manual/User Guide and become thoroughly familiar with the proper operation of your Dehumidifier, as well as how to properly maintain it. As, they aren't maintenance free.
