Question about Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier
My dehumidifiers sounds like it runs normally, but the water does not drain into the water bucket. It will collect the water around where the fan and coils are. So when it gets alot of water around that area instead of going in the bucket it drains on the floor. I'm scared to use it, because of a potential electric shock or something. It's not normal to be collecting around the coils - I have cleaned the air filter and tried to take off the outer coil cover and won't come off. I took out the screws but the cover won't come off. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Search for drain hole beneath coils probably plugged,mine was.

The dehumidifier has a non-removable tray under the coils (they look like radiators) that collects and drains the water away. If the tray or drain gets clogged with dirt or slime the water doesn't drain away well. Some water is picked up by the fan and is blown out the vent. Take the covers off the machine and give everything a good cleaning. If you get water on any electrical parts, let the machine dry thoroughly before plugging in.
