    One of my model M7DH45B2A Maytag 45 PINT Dehumidifiers has started leaking as has been described. I have it hooked to a hose which goes to a drain pipe to the outside of the house. It is not leaking where the hose hooks to the plastic tube allowing external draining, but is soaking the shelf that the dehumidifier is sitting on, as well as the floor.

    This may not resolve tdmiller's problem, but I figured out my own problem. In simplest terms, my drain hose was plugged.

    I had noticed a couple of months ago that my bucket kept filling up (though the hose being hooked up should have bypassed the bucket completely). The flat area above the bucket always had moisture on it, so I at first assumed I had a leak. I also noticed what appeared to be a drain hole on the flat surface, but did not think much of it at the time. I think I must have re-positioned the unit to be tilted more towards the rear. What I discovered today is that the water was dripping into the back of the unit, then from there was leaking onto the shelf. I have unclogged the hose, and anticipate that I have resolved my own problem.

    same problem. Had done it at other time but i took the vacuum cleaner to the front drain spout that leaks into the removable basin. That worked in the past, but i't's not working now . The water is overflowing at the back of the catch tray and leaking out through the bottom underneath. The holes are clear, so it shouldn't be doing this. I am stumped.

    Water is slowly leaking from the unit onto the floor. The hose does not appear to be clogged, the water collector is half full and the unit has automatically shut off as if full. The hose is connected directly to a drain. WHAT GIVES???

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.

Our machine is collecting water but I have a drip coming from the bottom onto the floor? It is coming from the behind the collection area?


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.

Water leaks out of the bottom of the humidifier and the bucket does not fill up. The water just leaks out.


Based upon my experience with the same problem on my Kenmore 54701 last summer: The condensate water collects in a plastic pan below the coils. This pan has a single drain hole where the water flows down into the bucket. When I suddenly found water puddling on the floor instead of in the bucket, I opened up the unit, and I found that the collection pan's drain hole had become blocked by "bioslime". I cleaned out the goo from the drain hole, and the problem was solved.

My dehumifier is leaking. The collector pan is fine. I took the covers off and could not detect anything. It is pretty simple...air blows by the coils, condenses, collects and runs into the pan. Looks...


TRY IT ON LOW FAN SPEED AND SEE IF IT LEAKS , MAKE SURE IF THERE IS A HOSE OR SMALL DRAIN PAN UNDER COIL   THAT IT IS CLEAN AND FREE OF DIRT .SOMETIMES ON HIGH WATER IS BLOWN PAST DRAIN PAN AND DRIPS ON FLOOR , THIS MAY BE A BAD DESIGN. IF THERE IS A FILTER CLEAN IT

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

With an external pipe or even the bucket attached it seem to leak onto the floor below, what am i doing wrong


You may have a blockage in the metal or plastic collection pan under the coil that sweats to take water out of the air. Possibly some pet hair, lint etc. Have you cleaned it lately? Could the pan be rusted through somewhere? Is it level? Could you the collection bucket be cracked at or near the hose connection?

Amcor tc100 started to leak on the floor but is still working


Ive had same issue with this machine. i opened it up and cleaned the plastic channels leading into the tank. Dust can collect and block these channels, diverting the water onto the floor. This cleared that problem, but now the fan is not working, so im hunting for one going cheap...?
