I had this to. Check to see if there is any packing tape just above the tank. The tape on mine was not tapping the tank shut; it had been there for a year (not interfering with anything), but i pulled it all out anyways, and the tank let go!

I need to be clear on what you said. you "can't find where to empty the water." Meaning you have removed the water collection bucket and don't know where to empty it? If that's the case, emptying it in a bath tub, is the easiest way.
However, if you meant, you don't know how to remove the water collection tank. It's on the front of the unit, below the air intake louvers. It simply slides/pulls out of the dehumidifier, when you pull on the indented handles on both sides of the bucket.
To assist you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual to a Danby model similar to yours. You can download and print it for future reference.
this part is the indicator to activate the interlock that stop your deshumidifier when water tank is full.
It activate a switch on the top right of the placeholder of the tank. when the switch is relaesed it tells you either thank is not there or full and light a red signal.
the center of the wheel should be back the pivot. if the pivot is broken, i don't suggest you to forced the switch activated unless you use the direct drain, or you might have water spilled over a full bucket!
All dehumidifiers have an interlock to prevent them from running when the tank is out. This is to avoid a mess with not tank for the water to collect in. I would say that your interlock switch is in a position which is telling the machine that there is no tank in the unit. Take the tank back out and look into the space with a flashlight to find the switch. It could be on the bottom or the top. Your operation manual might be helpful in locating the switch. Once you find the switch check it for operation. It should move or depress when the tank is put in. It probably is jammed and you will have to determine whether it can be fixed or you may need to replace it. If it moves freely then it is probably defective and will need to be replaced. Good luck.
Check your tank. Remove it and look to be sure that there isn't any shipping foam or foreign objects in the area which may be keeping the safety switch open. If the area is clear check the switch to make sure that it is not stuck and it moves freely. If that is OK replace the tank and make sure that it is installed completely and correctly. Try it again. If it still does not work I would take it back to the store and have them check it out under the warranty. Good luck.
