As I told a questioner, yesterday who was having the same problem: The operation a dehumidifier is based on the amount of humidity in the house or room where you have it placed. If the humidity level is low and you have the humidifier set on a low extraction setting, there would be little to no water in the bucket. However, if you have all the settings correct and you still don't get water in the bucket, the top 2 reasons for this are: The Filter needs cleaning and # 2 the drain tube or hole is clogged. The solution for cleaning the filter is a no brainer. The solution for unclogging the drain tube or hole is not that difficult. You will need a 12" to 20" long Plastic Zip Tie (or something similar, but no wire coat hangers), that's small enough to go through the drain tube or hole. When you remove the bucket look up and into the compartment that the bucket came out of and you will see the drain tube or drain hole. Slowly and carefully push the zip tie into the hole and continue to work it into the hole until you reach the curve in the tubing. This is the tricky part. Carefully and gently work it past the curve and about 4" more. Then start removing the Zip Tie as you slowly rotate it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you continue to pull it out, be prepared for water to follow it. If you have water draining out, your problem is solved.

If none of the above solved your problem, the condenser unit may be low on refrigerant. In which case, you will need a pro to service it.

Hope this information helps to solve the problem.

Is there a call back on unit lad704tdl dehumidifier


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are wondering if there is a recall on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL. I see that the bucket is not filling with water when your appliance is running. I don't believe there are any recalls. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. They should be able to point you in the right direction. Hope this is helpful.

The bucket fills up but we have to put a towel down because it leaks all over the floor. What could be wrong ?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the bucket fills with water and overflows on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DUD. Please make sure your dehumidifier is installed on a level that will support it with a full bucket of water. If the dehumidifier is moving when it fills with water then this could possibly be the cause of the bucket overflowing. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dehumidifier will run but the bucket won't fill. Is there a way to run my model without the bucket? I have a maytag m7dh4582a and do not have my manual. Could their be something else wrong with it?

Is it producing water or not??? If no water is being produced, then check out this tip...

If you are making water and it is just going all over the place then, the little spout coming off the bottom of the coil, that runs the water into the bucket is clogged with dirt and you just need to take a small toothpick or knife and work the dirt out of the spout...

Can I set my dehumidifier to turn cycle on and off while I am traveling


Normally a dehumidifier will run based on the humidity found in the air in the room it is located in, although many can be set to run all the time.

I don't believe your model can be set to run next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday because you will be home and th NOT run next Friday and Saturday because you will be traveling, for example.

Your machine should run on automatic until the bucket fills with water at which time it should stop running until you empty the bucket. Many buckets offer the feature of adding a drain hose you can run to a drain somewhere. Some people have a floor drain they use for such purposes. Others I have known sit the device on the counter and drain into a sink or in the bath tub and drain that way.

For best dehumidifying results, you should run your machine all the time.

I hope I have answered your quesiton. Thanks for considering FixYa.com
