Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier
I had the same problem. The plastic tube that routes the water out the back doesn't fit tightly. It took a couple of weeks but the bucket would fill and the darn thing would shut off.
My first attempt was to put a hose clamp over the adapter. The clamp was simple enough but then the bucket wouldn't go back in. Using a small saw, I carefully cut a notch in the bucket. WARNING: Make sure that whatever you cut doesn't reach low enough that when the bucket fills, the little float thingy shuts off the unit before it starts to leak. Anyway, that still leaked. The problem is that that plastic tube is stiff and slippery and doesn't seal well.
What finally worked for me was to take the adapter off, go to the hardware store and buy some clear plastic tubing. I found some that fit very tightly over the tube inside and, with the hose clamp, sealed well.

The water is not pumped it is gravity feed so unless the sink is lower than the unit it will bypass over the adaptor and into the fill bucket

Good morning friend, thanks for your post!
Based off what you're explaining it sounds like your Frigidaire dehumidifier might not be leveled. Any time your dehumidifier is not properly leveled water will not drain out the rear but instead into the bucket. I would recommend checking to assure your appliance is leveled. If your dehumidifier is leveled detach the hose to make sure nothing is blocking the water for exiting into the hose. If those steps are unsuccessful and you continue to get water into the bucket please respond back and I can research more information for you. Best of luck. -Matt
