Kenmore Dehumidifier 251.90701-automatic pump not empting bucket

Why doesn't the bucket empty automatically? It has been working for over a year. This is a new phenomenon. I have cleaned it, and it looks O.K. Could it be the hose?

SOURCE: Dehumidifier Error?

This error code indicates that the problem is most likely a shorted defrost thermistor or possibly a pinched wire going to the thermistor. You will need to replace the sensor assembly - part # 6877A30013L. The Sears website has it listed for 9.99 + shipping. The humidity sensor & defrost thermistor come together in a wiring harness that plugs onto the main circuit board. It is fairly simple to repair. Just remove the front & rear grill & the metal cabinet. Remove the thermistor from the copper tube on the cooling lines; remove the humidity sensor from the front of the evaporator; pull the wire plug off the bucket switch; & remove the small 7 pin plug from the main circuit board inside the metal control box. Reverse procedure to install new sensor assembly.

SOURCE: dehumidifier runs but does not collect water

I have dehumidifier Whirlpoot Gold Model #39R171E Serial #H/XE11M1K 6203A it was working fine last year, but this year it is not collecting any water, it is running for day. I opened it, cleaned the filter (which was mostly clean) & it still has not water in bucket. What is wrong & is it possible to fix it by myself.

SOURCE: 'bucket full' light on, but bucket empty

There is likely a switch operated by a float to turn that light on and turn off the compressor, sometimes manufactures use a rubber "O" ring on the float shaft and they can slip. take the cover off the pump and check the float or in some cases one of two floats are used. Once float turns the pump on and off and the second float shuts OFF the compressor and turns ON the full reservior light.

I have an LG energy star auto start dehumidifier (about 3 years old). It works fine. How can I hook it up to drain into my laundry sink automatically? It would save me the effort of emptying the bucket...


Unfortunately, draining into a laundry sink is not an option. As your model does not have a pump, it relies entirely on gravity to drain with a 48" length of garden hose. A floor drain is the perfect way to go, if you have one.

To further assist you, I have included a llnk to your model, which has been discontinued. You can download and print the manual for future reference if you like.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.
