You can test it out by disconnecting the power cord, wait five minutes and plug it back in. If it retains the original settings you are good to go. If you are wondering before purchasing a new unit ask before you buy.

You need to determine what's "running". Here's why: There are three things that must be working to extract water. The
'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled
with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a
blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing
air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from
air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled
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.

Hey friend, thanks for your post!
It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt
