Question about Danby DDR600R Silhouette Dehumidifier
My Danby Silhouette was working fine for about a year and a half. All of a sudden it started leaking at the back of the unit. Each time the unit is turned on, the water leaks from the back. It seems as though none of the water is going into the removable bucket, it is being drained out through the back. We contacted Danby but their only suggestion was to clean the filter (the filter was clean). I hope someone can help.
Unplug your device, clean the mess and remove the filter.
After you have cleaned out the filter, remove the water tank. Inside of the area where the water tank was at the top you will see a small opening (drain) which is where the water comes from. It is probably clogged...
Take a few Q-tips and clean the inside of it. There is still probably water trapped inside so expect more water to come down as you do this. Once you're satisfied that the small drain is cleared, you can put everything back together and you should be good to go!
I had the same problem and that fixed it.

Check that the removable bucket did not alter a water guide near the cooling fins
