Re: Indicates full when empty
Hi, There should be a little actuating rod poking down from the roof of the bucket chamber which contacts the bucket-float at one end and a microswitch at the other.
Check this if you can to see whether it is present, absent, lying on the floor or just plain stuck.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

most units have a drain line kite . if you do this it means it becomes gravity dependent water must drain down hill you cant put a hose on it and then run it up and out of a basement window you know what i meen
dehums remove humidity from air inside unit the evaporator sits in drain pan , drain pan has some sort of line or tube witch leeds to the internal collection or bucket thats what you slide out and empty when its full , ther is some sort of sensor or float switch that lets you know wen full make sure unit is draining properly inernaly and full system is working properly
Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact. Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine. If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself. It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger. The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced. (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)
Dehumidifiers and how they work Heat pump dehumidifiers
Dehumidifiers use a heat pump (similar to an air conditioner's heat pump) or chemical adsorbents to remove moisture from the air without cooling the air.
A heat pump dehumidifier uses a fan to draw indoor air over a heat exchange coil. The coil is almost freezing. The water in the air condenses on the coil and is drained. A second heat exchange coil reheats the air, which the dehumidifier exhausts into the room.
A heat pump dehumidifier dumps heat lost from the compressor and fan motors into the air. It returns to the indoor air the heat generated by the dehumidifier turning water vapour to liquid. I got this off the internet
