Check the positioning of the water bucket It may be slightly out of place and is not triggering the switch. If that doesn't solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit for 12 - 15 minutes. Then plug it back in and turn the Master Switch ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls and it may have reset itself.
If none of the above soled the problem contact the manufacture's Customer Support or Tech Service Dept.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
I am NOT aquainted with the Maytag Portable AC..... But There has to been a sensor that tells the unit that the water bin is full...... If there is any moisture on the sensor and touching a ground probe then even though the bin is empty the sensor is still making a connection to ground. If you can trace out the wire that goes to the sensor you can unplug it from the board till it dries out or you replace it..... Only if you do make sure you empty the bin often or you will have water every where because the unit won't shut off if the water bin is full..... Hope this helps

Move the unit to a location that is suitable for draining water from the unit. Remove the plug in the lower center of the back of the unit and allow the water to completely drain (Remember to replace plug.)
Remember...this is not the water tank on the side. This is the water than can collect in the bottom of the unit. Take it outside and drain it
I have the same exact problem suddenly. Unit is only 11 months old and not used that often. Bucket fills up and unit will switch to fan only. Drain hose (small black one) is not clogged but bucket keeps filling up. Never had to empty the bucket until yesterday, now I did it four times in one day (so far). Did you ever find a fix?
