It may be time to clean out the drain channels, which is a moderate maintenance job. Not too hard to perform for a DiY'er. But, have you checked to see if your dehumidifier is part of the recently announced recall? I remember seeing Frigidaire 70s on the list; (one or two factories make the machine, many companies label it as their own)
Please check the link for the recall and check your owners manual for cleaning procedure. You can download a copy from Frigidaire's website, too. Home Page

My Comfort-Aire Dehumidifier has started leaking water. The unit works fine but the water bucket does not retain all the water. As the bucket fills there are slow leaks. Also, sometimes when replacing the...


It can have leaks from the condenser to the bucket. The piping and hoses should be checked all the way. Perhaps even replaced or at least cleaned. I don't think it is wise to do this yourself. Because in the system also can be algae, bacteria and viruses. And you need tools and skills to replace defective tubes, pipes or gaskets.

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier send water outside bucket?


Good Afternoon Jean,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DWD, is putting the water that it collects out onto the floor as oppose to the bucket. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

Why doesn't water drain into the hose?


My dehumidifier was dumping condensate onto the floor instead of through the hose to the floor drain. The solution turned out to be making sure the unit was level. No worries since then.

Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier is leaking -- water isn't going into the tray, but seems to be leaking out into the floor.


Mine is doing the same thing. The bucket is dry and the floor is flooded, so it is not an inability to condense, and it is not that the bucket has overflowed, and the bucket does not have a leak. It had been working great and then this suddenly started happening, it's as if the water is not flowing along the proper route and instead is gathering behind the bucket.

Danby Dehumidifier DDR7009REE leaking water, bucket not full


Hi there,
The unit may need cleaning. You can contact Danby customer service (1-800-263-2629) to get in contact with a technician.
There may be something clogging the passage to the bucket and the water is finding the path of least resistance.
As well, it is important to remember to clean the filter once a month.

Water will not drain into reservoir. Instead the water drains/leaks onto the floor.


First, is the unit level? Tipped a bit to one side or the other, or front to back could be the issue.
Next, is the drain hole clear? locate where the water drip from into the bucket and push a wire up there to ensure it is clear. use something like a garbage bag tie.

The water seems to leak out the sides where the bucket goes in instead of the bucket filling up with water it goes on the floor.


sounds like the drain line might be clogged, with a piece of wire stick it in the line and see if it clears it. Hope this helped tim
