When you pull the tank out and look on top-right of the underside of the machine, (image being on top of the tank while it's sitting in the dehumidifier), can you see the nozzle properly sitting there? Imagining that the collection tank is inside of the machine, the water should be dripping directly out of that nozzle, into the tank. Also make sure that nothing is attached to that nozzle, cause the water to be redirected elsewhere.

SOURCE: Water tank still gets full when connected to floor drain

Check the fitting where you connect the drain hose to. It may have a plastic seal that must be cleared out in order to use the hose drain. The plastic seal can be easily punched out.

SOURCE: water dripping outside the collector

I think that there is a 90 degree bend in the outlet on the bottom right front side of the collection tray that gets pluged with dirt, line etc. You can see this when you remove the collection container from the unit. I used a small piece of wire to clean out the hole and now the water goes into the tank and not onto the floor.

SOURCE: our Whirlpool gold dehumidifier is leaking water.

Do you use a hose with your dehumidifier? Could it be leaking? I have two machines in my basement. I use hoses on both. I had to do funny stuff to make the hoses not leak on the plastic 'blown' tanks. Even the cap that originally came with the machines were leaking before I started to use the hoses.

Check for holes in the tank as well.

Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier is leaking -- water isn't going into the tray, but seems to be leaking out into the floor.


Mine is doing the same thing. The bucket is dry and the floor is flooded, so it is not an inability to condense, and it is not that the bucket has overflowed, and the bucket does not have a leak. It had been working great and then this suddenly started happening, it's as if the water is not flowing along the proper route and instead is gathering behind the bucket.

De500 pump failure


I agree with Mike Kolbay's earlier very complete answer. The water intake to the pump is quite narrow, and clogs easily with accumulated lint and bacterial muck. While the covers are off the machine, thoroughly clean the drip tray and all the water passages. A piece of crud the size of your smallest fingernail can cause water to overflow onto the floor, rather than going into the tank.

Water is not collecting properly in the bucket. I ran it for an entire day, and only about half an inch collected in the bucket while more than that amount of water leaked from the unit. There was a puddle...

Our Whirlpool gold dehumidifier is leaking water. We have checked the water reservoir and it is in correctly and continues to collect water. But, water is seaping onto our floor from the dehumidifier.

No water collecting, unit running


the collector base under the tubes just collects water and drips it through a hole into the water bucket. there must be a loose hose(if it has one) or the base collector or bucket has a crack, as they usually are plastic. also if the unit is sitting on a very uneven floor this will happen

Amcor tc100 started to leak on the floor but is still working


Ive had same issue with this machine. i opened it up and cleaned the plastic channels leading into the tank. Dust can collect and block these channels, diverting the water onto the floor. This cleared that problem, but now the fan is not working, so im hunting for one going cheap...?
