SOURCE: My Danby dehumidifier leaks out
The drain tube or hole that drains into the bucket is probably clogged.
Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look in the cavity where the bucket was removed for a drain tube or drain hole. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) , that's appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Carefully feed the ZIP Tie into the hole or tube and thread it as far as you can. At some point the drain will curve, but you have to carefully get past this point. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. Once you have it half way out, be prepared for water to follow. This method should solve the problem.

Daniele, the drain hole or drain hole tubing, that that flows thru to the bucket may be clogged. To loosen & remove the clog, do the following:
1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & unplug the unit.
2. Remove the bucket from the unit.
3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though).That's appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tube. Carefully insert the Zip Tie in to the drain hole or tube and continue to insert it until you reach a bend in the tube. You must gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Slowly pull it back out while rotating (twisting) it, This will help dislodge any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.
Completing the above, should dislodge any clogs and water will start draining back into the tank. Be sure that you have the humidity extraction level set on 35%, after you turn the unit back ON.
