Empty tank, but "filled" light still on. Won't turn off

Ny Maytag dehumidifier was working fine. I emptied it, then plugged it in again and I get the light under "filled" and no action. In fact, it will not turn off unless I unplug it. Is there a reset button somewhere?

Many thanks, Joan

Be sure that you all have the bucket fully installed against the bucket switch, to see if the switch is bad, remove the bucket and press in on the switch, if the compressor starts then the bucket is out of place if it does not start then the bucket switch needs inspection

Fill light on and beeps but holding tank is empty


If it is like mine, the plastic part attached to the float in the collection bucket is broken and no longer actuates the switch that indicates the collection bucket (holding tank) is full. When I checked several years ago, the replacement part was no longer available. I used tape to keep the switch in the position that allowed the dehumidifier to operate and attached the hose connector to allow the condensate to drain. The collection bucket isn't needed anymore with this arrangement.

My dehumidifier full light is on but the unit is empty and the fan motor won't work. Is there a way to reset it? Is that why the fan motor won't work?


This is generally causes by improperly installing the water collection bucket after removing it to empty it. Or the float valve in the top ow the water bucket s stuck in the "UP" position. Some Maytag models have a float control that moves from left to right, depending on how much water you want it to collect, before having to empty it. It may be stuck in the center position and needs to be moved left or right.

When installing the bucket, be sure that it fits into the holder "squarely" from top to bottom and makes contact with the bucket removal safety switch at the back of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Maytag electronic dehumidifiers full light stays on


Take out the bucket and locate the "full" switch in the upper right of the area where the bucket slides in. With the unit on, try pushing it in and see if the "full" light goes off.
If so, that switch is fine - if not try to adjust if and replace it if required. Those are generally micro-switches and firms like Radio Shack would have if your appliance parts dealer does not.
