Why is my Frigidaire dehumidifier leaking water from the bottom of the unit?


Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I have identified that a few possibilities to why water is leaking from the bottom of your dehumidifier could be a crack inside your bucket or condensation from the bucket. I would remove your bucket and look it over to see if you can locate any visible cracks or chips. How much water is leaking from your dehumidifier? If you can provide any further information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

Amana D965e-e dehumidifier leaking


I encountered a similar problem (using the bucket, but still getting water leaking onto the floor) with my 970E-E. The problem is a design flaw. If the bucket is not firmly pressed into the dehumidifier, there is a slight air gap between the bucket and the dehumidifier on the left side. Within the gap, warm moist environmental air cools. Water condenses in the gap and pools up at the bottom of the bucket shelf, eventually spilling over onto the floor. You can check and see if this is your problem by pulling out the bucket and inspecting for droplets along the left side of the bucket shelf. My solution was the bungie the bucket into the shelf firmly so that there is no air gap.

Leaking for no apparent reason.


2 things are generally the culprit. The water collection bucket is improperly installed or is cracked or the water tubing that drains into the bucket is clogged.

Check the bucket for proper installation and cracks and if that produces nothing move on to the clogged drain tubing below.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before preceding any further.

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

Hope I was able to help you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have the 25 pint unit and it leaks underneath the bucket. Water does get pulled into the bucket but when running water leaks out at the bottom and puddles on the floor. The bucket has been checked for...


If the unit is leaking under the bucket and you haven't been able to find a crack or hole in the bucket. The bucket may not be properly inserted in to the dehumidifier. Remove the bucket, empty it and reinsert it into the unit making sure that it fits in squarely (Top to Bottom).

If the above doesn't correct the problem, the drain tube to the bucket may be partially clogged. To check this, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar. But NO wire coat hangers. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the bucket and you will see a drain hole or tube at the top of bucket cavity. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in unitl you reach the bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

The dehumidifier will not run. It has power to the control panel but the "bucket full" light is flashing RED. We have a hose hooked up to the unit to drain the water and we have check the bucket...


Generally, the buckets on these units can be a little finicky. Especially, if the bucket is not installed properly. In other words, if the bucket doesn't trip the safety switch, when it's out in place and the "bucket full" indicator will remain on and the unit will not run. I suspect the hose attached to the bucket may have gotten the bucket slightly out of place and it's not triggering the safety switch. Turn the unit off, and reinstall the bucket,. Then turn the unit back ON. Make sure there is a little slack in the hose from the unit to the where ever you're draining the water to. In other words, the hose should not be pulling on the bucket.

As I said, they can be a little finicky, so be patient reinstalling the bucket. As it may take several tries, before you get it right.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

We had a hose attached to empty into a drain, but the hose came loose. Now it won't run because it shows the bucket is full.


Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

The bucket full light is on and unit will not run. Unit has hose adapter in use.


Look inside where the bucket goes in at the top right hand side is the bucket switch. Hold it in and start the unit. If it runs the arm on the switch must be bent SLIGHTLY until it makes contact with the button and the lite goes out with the bucket in.

Well life span is 3-15 years depends how long and hard you run them. 45 pint is about 1000sqft basment. rule of thumbs bigger better. run less and do a better job. I would start by filling the bucket and place in a dry shower see if you have a crack. cant find a source for the bucket discontinued this might be your problem. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-M7DH45B2A-%3d%3di1025984&PartID=1025984 Repair cost are about 40-50 and hour!!!! good luck

Leaking water onto the floor. bucket is filling, but is not overflowing. i'm stumped


Take the bucket out, fill it with water, and see if it has a hole or crack. Also look above the bucket and see if the drippage is coming straight down or being diverted by an obstruction.

Hopper not seated right


I had the same problem with my Kenmore dehumidifier. The bucket couldn't be properly seated because the plastic cracked slightly at the site where the bucket normally is held. Because of this, the button that it is supposed to be pushed in to keep the dehumidifier running wasn't pushed in all the way. A friend has a Kenmore with the exact same bucket- tried hers, and it works perfectly.

The problem I have now is that I can't find the bucket for sale.
