Also check to see that the nut on the male connection to the external water tank is tight. Mine dripped because the nut was loose.

Since, I believe your model s a multifunction unit (Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier), Which can be operated together or separately. There are two things which may be causing this problem. If the dehumidifier function is operating the water collection tank o bucket may be full and needs to be emptied. In conjunction with this, the air intake filter on the inside front of the unit may be dirty or clogged.
There is a third thing that is also playing a role in this. The tubing that drains the water into the tank may be clogged. Which causes the water to backup and overflow. You can clear any clogs by using an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, that is appropriately sized to fit inside the tube or hole. Insert it carefully and work it in past the bend in the tube, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The rotate (twist) it as you carefully remove it. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. CAUTION: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE OF THE UNIT, TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF & UNPLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET.
Also keep in mind When dehumidify mode is selected, the indicator light will shine ORANGE. Air is
dehumidified as it passes through the unit,without being in full cooling mode. The fan will operate on medium speed. If room temperature is 25°C (77°F), fan speed can be adjusted; otherwise fan speed is fixed to "low". Note: The warm air exchange hose must vent inside the room when using Dehumidify Mode, not outside as it does when cooling. If the unit is vented outside, some cooling will occur.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
