Not sure what you are calling the "collector". Most of the time, problems like this are caused by a build up of gunk at the point where the water, which has condensed and dripped down into a tray, leave the try and is suppose to go either into the water bucket or out the drain hose if that is attached. Because this area gets plugged up, the water has to go some where else, which results in leakage over the side of aforementioned tray.
The best solution is to remove all the covers to get to this drain area and clean it out, but that is a pain to do. I'd suggest trying to run a pipe cleaner or nylon wire tie back up into the area where the water is suppose to leave the dehumidifier on it's way to the bucket or hose. Flushing some water back that way with a turkey baster might work also, but would result in some splashing, causing a little additional temporary leakage.

I HAVE AIDYLIS DEHUMIDIFIER#0526011 THAT WHEN HOOKED UP WITH A FLOOR DRAIN STILL LETS WATER GO DOWN INTO THE CATCH BUCKET AND NOT COMPLEATLY OUT THE DRAIN


id ck the drain hose connection for build up of fouling material , the symptom you describe usually occurs when the hose cant drain all the water the machine makes

a wet/dry vac is perfect for this (set to wet) and some even allow you to turn airflow around to blow air as well , this is perfect to clear a stopped up hose (point end into bucket)

Why does it leak water all over the floor?


If condensate drains into an internal bucket, your dehumidifier may not be level or something may be preventing proper flow. If condensate flows through an external line to a drain, the line may be clogged.

How can I get it to empty out the extenal drain?


might your hose or drain fitting be clogged , if so it's a very common cause of no drain, i use a wet/dry vac backwards (blowing out) to gently push whatever it is out of the hose and fitings , wet /dry vacs have a gentle air flow not sharp/rough like compressed air !!! to make a messs on your floor

Unit is not collecting water and carpet is wet


Unplug it and let it dry out. Place it on old newspaper and start. Check the paper and look for the wet spot. That will let you know where the water is coming out of the unit. Check that area, it is probably a bad seal on the drain or a crack in the water container.

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.

Hi, I have a Haier HD306 Dehumidifier. I'm having an issue of the water dripping onto the floor. There is no crack or leak coming from the bucket itself. The leak seems to be coming from the back...


Hi,
When my unit did that, I found that it was because the drain tube was plugged with lint and/or dirt...
Run a large tooth pick or wire up inside the drain and see if the water doesn't start running right out of there...

No water collecting, unit running


the collector base under the tubes just collects water and drips it through a hole into the water bucket. there must be a loose hose(if it has one) or the base collector or bucket has a crack, as they usually are plastic. also if the unit is sitting on a very uneven floor this will happen

Fdk45p1 dehumidifier


Has anyone figured out how to get a 25-pint Frigidaire dehumidifier (model FDD25S1) to put water out the drain hose for continuous draining instead of into the bucket? It appears to be impossible to connect the hose in a way to avoid water leaking into the bucket.
