This could be from a couple things, first is that as units get a little older, the drains and pans start to clog because as your removing water from the air, your also removing dirt. Sometimes this dirt builds up on the bottom of the pan and over time, it clogs the drain. This will allow the pan to overflow and spill over on the side that has the lowest spot. One way to tell is to shim up the back about an 1/8th or an inch. If it leaks from the front now, your drain is clogged. If it drains fine and the drip in the back goes away, you have corrosion in your pan and you'll need to take it apart an clean it, aluminum tape it, and silicone it to get back to full operation.

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.

The water is not going into the collection tank and just leaking all over the floor


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.

Dehumidifier leaking onto floor.


You should clean off the condensor coils with a vaccum and soft brush. Also, check up inside the area where the condensate drips into the collection reservoir (or goes directly into a hose attachment discharge) to see if something is partially obstructing the water flow and is dripping onto the floor, etc.

You might find that you've got some buildup of dust, dirt, and some other gunk that is mis-directing the water (condesate) that the dehumidifier is drawing out of the air.

Lastly, check the unit to see if it's level, but frankly, I highly doubt that's the issue, based on the 5+ years of good working service for you.

So long as the unit is still running and keeping the humidity in check, (if the above steps don't resolve the issue), I'd continue using it until it finally quits running, but I'd put a plastic boot/shoe mat under it to catch the small puddles of water.

The dehumidifier should draw the small puddles, so it'd be less expensive to get a $4 boot mat than dropping another $240+ for a new unit, as your's seems to be working fine, aside from the occaissional puddle issue.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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

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.
