On mine, the filter is in the front. Behind the grill. To remove it, you have to remove the bucket first. Then you can see two tabs sticking down that say "Filter Front". You can reach your fingers up & behind it, grab the lip, and pull straight down. For me it requires more force than expected. With the filter out, put the bucket back in and turn it on. Make sure that there is air blowing out the back to verify that the fan still works. I hope this helps.

There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that allows air passage) if it's filled with dust and obstructions, no air can move...no water. There is a blower motor that mus move the air. If it is seized up an not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor uses condensation from the air moving across its coils (like the moisture than forms on a cold glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

Now that you've had a chance to vent your frustration, Mike. Did you check the outlet the unit is plugged into, to make sure that it's working? Amazingly enough, I answer questions like yours all the time. And, you know what? 80% of the time, the problem is with the outlet. It's either the circuit breaker was tripped or the interior of the receptacle was damaged. And that's not counting a loose wire connection on the receptacle. So, either test the receptacle or plug the unit into another one, that's on a different circuit.
If by chance you have to replace any parts, your Kenmore Dehumidifier was manufactured for Sears, by Whirlpool. So, parts are interchangeable. And, as my son says, "If all else fails, read the Owner's Manual.

I think the problem may be caused by the humidity extraction level you have the unit set on. (i.e. It's set to high). Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. This will allow the unit to run longer and extract more humidity, before it either shuts off, because the humidity level has been reached or the bucket is full and needs to be emptied.
Don't forget, the air intake filter should be cleaned regularly.
Hope this helped you. Please let me know.
