Question about Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier
First, make sure the reservoir is empty. If you plug the unit in and see a green power light, but the unit won't run, make sure the reservoir is properly inserted.
Many dehumidifiers have switches or sensors to make sure that the reservoir is placed so that it won't leak. Look for these sensors and make sure the reservoir is engaging them. If your dehumidifier has a float or switch to indicate a full reservoir, make sure this switch isn't being tripped accidentally.

We are having the exact same problem with our LG dehumidifier. We got the exact same response from the consumer service number they list. We just want to know what the CH01 means. We have to drive to another town and pay them $25 just to look at it. We had an old Sears dehumidifier that we inherited that ran for years and this is what we replaced it with! We've had it one year. Is there any help out there?

Try feeling both sides of the outside of the bucket and make sure the bucket is flush with the dehumidifier. If one side is sticking out more than the other it may notbe engaged correctly which will cause a full bucket notification. If everything checks out ok there try takng the bucket out and push in on the button that the lever from the bucket engages on at the dehumidifier. If the light turns off after you push on the red button that means the bucket is not engaging correctly. If the red light stays on and it doesnt make a difference he button sensor may be defective. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

SOURCE: Bucket full light will not
The bucket full light is controlled by a manual 'float' switch in the bucket itself
-when the water level rises...it lifts the float ...turns on the light and does not allow the unit to operate because it believes it is full.
It is very common for the 'float' to gets misaligned, hung-up, etc. when you remove and re-insert the bucket. Sometimes the 'chain' gets twisted, turned...which does not allow the float to ...float...rather it is 'hung-up' which indicates it is 'full'...when in fact it is clearly not.
To check this:

Look inside where the bucket goes in at the top right hand side is the bucket switch. Hold it in and start the unit. If it runs the arm on the switch must be bent SLIGHTLY until it makes contact with the button and the lite goes out with the bucket in.
