The air intake filter may need cleaning. Also, check the humidity setting. You may have it set to low. In addition, it wouldn't hurt to check the drain tube or drain hole (whichever one your unit has) that's just above the bucket. You'll see it once you remove the bucket. It may be clogged and is not allowing the water to drain properly. Using a 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) that will comfortably fit into the hole ... Carefully and gently run it as far as you can into the drain hole or tube. The tricky part is when you reach the bend in the tube. So, tread carefully. Once you have it inserted as far possible, as you rotate the Zip Tie, slowly pull it out. Rotating it, will loosen any debris. Be prepared for water to follow.

If none of the above solves the problem, the compressor in the dehumidifier may be low on refrigerant gas and will need to be recharged.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Haier 45-pint dehumidifier unit cannot be turned on. It has been running fine last few days.

The first thing that comes to mind, is have you emptied the water collection bucket recently? If so, be sure that the bucket was properly reinstalled and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

If you haven't emptied the bucket in the past few days, it may simply be full and will not start until it's emptied.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Put empty bucket in,it runs for minute,then shuts off. need a switch that won't shut off. Where could I find one my zip code is 44451.

The switch may not be the problem. However, a dirty or clogged air intake filter or the humidity extraction level set to high could be.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.
Remove and clean the air intake filter thoroughly. Be sure the filter is completely dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.

After the filter is dry, reinstall it, plug the unit and turn it ON. Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. If you have an analog unit (No LED screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.

And finally, be sure that the water collection bucket is installed properly and is not vibrating loose when the unit runs. It should fit squarely into it's holder, making contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, it should not tilt down at the bottom of the bucket.

All of the above should solve the problem and you won't need to purchase a new switch. But, in the unlikely event, that you will have to. You will need to furnish the Brand Name of the unit and the Correct Model Number. As, they are not all the same.

My dehumidifier full light is on but the unit is empty and the fan motor won't work. Is there a way to reset it? Is that why the fan motor won't work?

This is generally causes by improperly installing the water collection bucket after removing it to empty it. Or the float valve in the top ow the water bucket s stuck in the "UP" position. Some Maytag models have a float control that moves from left to right, depending on how much water you want it to collect, before having to empty it. It may be stuck in the center position and needs to be moved left or right.

When installing the bucket, be sure that it fits into the holder "squarely" from top to bottom and makes contact with the bucket removal safety switch at the back of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

Dehumidier works fine! However it leaks water even when the bucket is empty and started. Some water collects in bucket but most runs out on the floor. What is wrong?

The drain hole of drain tube, that transports water to the bucket is clogged.

To solve this problem, do the following:

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers

I hope this helps you solve the problem.

Why is the red water full light on and not worrking?

Usually, when the red water full light glows, it means that the water collection bucket is full & needs to be removed and emptied. Once that's done and the bucket is reinstalled properly, the red light will go out and the unit will turn back ON.

My dehumidifier is only a couple months old and is leaking water all over the floor while collecting in the bucket too. Why and how can I fix it? - I will take it back under warranty but would rather just...

The leaking problem usually happens for 2 reasons,

1. If your unit is equipped with a float valve inside the top of the water collection bucket, it's stuck in
the UP position. Turn the unit OFF and unplug for the wall outlet. Remove and empty the bucket
if necessary. Look at the foam ball on the end of the float valve arm. If it's in the UP position
jiggle it, so that it returns to the DOWN Position. That should stop the wter from overflowing the

2. If the bucket is not installed properly into the bucket holder. Remove the bucket, empty the
bucket, if necessary and reinstall it. Be sure that the bucket fits "squarely" into the bucket
holder from top to bottom and that it does not tilt downward at the bottom.

It's also a good idea to check the pump switch for continual draining, to make sure it hasn't been accidentally turned ON.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I own a Whirlpool Dehumidifer Model Number AD 70USS1. I have a drain hose connected to the unit, however, recently the unit's internal collection bucket fills with water to the point that the...

superstee - You're having to empty it because either the drain hose you have connected to the unit is clogged or the drain hole a the hose connection is clogged. Therefor, the water is drained into the tank, rather than the drain hose. Also, the drain hose would not be any longer than 5' and must drain down, as the dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies totally on gravity.

Remove the hose and check it for clogs. If clear check the drain hose connection, using an 18" long appropriately sized Zip Tie. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. Gingerly work past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The while slowly pulling it out, rotate the Zip Tie. This will dislodge the clog. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie removal, be prepared for some water to follow. CAUTION: BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE ABOVE TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

The above should solve the problem for you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Attached a pump to drain collected water. The

the water should still collect into the tank. the dehumidifier had a float switch that shut the unit off when the tank is full. In turn it should have a second switch, probably a float switch that turns the pump on and off so that the pump doesnt continue to run when there is no moisture in the tank
