Question about Maytag M7DH65B2A Dehumidifier
Have you checked to see if the drain nozzle is directly over the collection tank where the water can go there instead of on the floor? Is the collection tank fully installed and not cocked sideways? Is there are hole in the collection tank? If you are using an external drain hose, is the gasket at the connection in good shape and is the connection tight? Is the drain hose lower than the connection at the unit in all places. One part of the drain hose higher than the unit and it will not drain. Are you emptying the collection tank regularly? Make sure the drain is clear of any obstructions and the water is flowing into the tank as it should if you are not using an external drain.

It is to be expected that a dehumidifier would produce water.
It is supposed to condense on the cold evaporator and drip down into the pan that you drain.
So it appears to me you are saying that it is not dripping down into the pan. Which means either you are not draining the pan as you should, or there is something preventing water from getting into the pan for you to drain. Which is it?

Many dehumidifiers have a float switch that prevents the unit from spilling over with the water that has been drawn out of the air. Sometimes this switch goes bad and must be replaced. If your dehumidifier is overflowing, you can test the overflow prevention switch with a volt-ohm meter.
1) Unplug the dehumidifier and remove the switch.
2) Disconnect the leads and clip the leads to the terminals on the switch.
3) Check the pan or reservoir and empty it if necessary, or make sure the drain isn’t clogged.
4) Straighten any kinks or bends in the unit’s hose.
5) Set a volt-ohm meter to the RX1 scale (or to K-Ω or Ω resistance on a digital meter) and depress the bar or trip lever on the switch. If the meter’s needle shows no continuity as the switch is clicked back and forth, the switch is probably faulty and will need replacement.

Hi friend, thank you for your post!
I have identified that a few possibilities to why water is leaking from the bottom of your dehumidifier could be a crack inside your bucket or condensation from the bucket. I would remove your bucket and look it over to see if you can locate any visible cracks or chips. How much water is leaking from your dehumidifier? If you can provide any further information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt
