SOURCE: Drain problem
I have the same problem and after talking (mostly waiting) with Fedders repair, I have been told how to solve the problem. Plug up the drain hole on the right side (the one not connected to the drain hose). The drain hole extends down about 5mm, outside measures 10mm and interior measures 7mm. They do come with a drain hold cover. Not a replaceable part with a number. Off to the hardware store.

I raised mine up on a platform about 6 inches, and now mine works fine. Don't know why this is necessary, but atleast it works now.

SOURCE: Pump not pumping
It's not a one way valve, it's a water strainer. It has a barrel with a fitting on each end, the upper leads into the barrel, the lower has a strainer tube attached. When it's plugging up, it seems like a one-way valve because when you try to force water into the top, it pushes the lint and junk against the strainer screen, blocking it. When you try to force water in from the bottom, the water pushes the lint away from the screen, allowing a reduced flow. Some have an arrow; it's to indicate flow direction to keep the lint on the outside of the screen; the inside, being mush smaller than the barrel, would plug up much sooner. Before you replace the strainer, clean the lint & stuff out of the small pump reservoir (above the pump). If you don't, the strainer will plug up quickly again, if it can even get water to it.

Hey ya! To fix this u need to block that hose connection under the Dehumidifier. This will then re direct the flow to the Bucket collection mode. I have the same problem and resolved it this way after pullng mine apart. It looks like by default that hose connection at the bottom should have a plug/cap on it and after turning on ur dehumidifier this fills up then once full it starts to over flow into the bucket... Seems a strange design but thats how they have done it.
Hope this helps others.
