Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Fan won't shut off

I recently replaced the fan motor on my dehumidifier. When I went to turn it on, it kept saying "bucket full." So I jiggled the red button just above the bucket and it stopped doing that. But now it will not turn off. I've tried jiggling the red button but to no avail. I hate to open this back up but I will. Sigh. I'm not very handy--just getting the fan replaced with no instructions was nothing short of miraculous for me--but if that's what it takes, I will. Thanks.

Hi. Is there an error "01" in the screen where the digital humidity level is indicated.

Error code 01 - unit has a sealed system leak; most warranties are 5 years.

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.

Broken Fan, Lost manual and Parts List


As I've recently posted a message, I've a similar unit with broken internal fan. I just placed an external fan in front of the unit and blowing front to back. With the air circulating, the unit is humming along happily and bucket fulls of water to harvest!! Don't bother fixing the fan motor, if that is the only problem, just place a small external fan instead.
