A dehumidifier is just a refrigerating machine with it's shirt hanging out and there is not much in the way of serviceable parts inside.
If the compressor runs - the throbbing sound - and it doesn't collect water then either the intake filter screen is totally clogged with fluff or the compressor has leaked it's gas away, in which case it might run continuously and get hot to no good effect.
If it doesn't run then it may be that the motor capacitor has failed, but that can soon lead to the compressor motor cooking itself; leaving you with an expensive doorstop.
The one thing you might get checked is the "bucket full" switch. There will be a floating part on the bucket which rises up when the bucket fills and eventually makes contact with another part which is connected to a small switch. If that switch has failed you might be lucky and get an inexpensive repair job done.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a suitable rating. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further.

Mine leaks. Had leaked at other times but i took the vacuum cleaner to the front drain spout, that leaks into the removable basin. That worked in the past, but i't's not working now . The water is overflowing at the back of the catch tray and leaking out through the bottom underneath. The holes are clear, so it shouldn't be doing this. I am stumped.

It is defective. The coils are not getting cold enough to condense water in the air. If you have the receipt and the unit is less than 5 years old, give LG a call for warranty repair.

I have a Whirlpool dehumidifier model AD50LJ0: the compressor starts but then appears to trip out. The fan keeps running. It does not condense and water. Can you help?

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.
