Check the collection bucket, to make sure it is installed tightly. If that checks out OK, the drain hole or tube that dumps water in to the bucket is clogged. To clear the clog, remove the bucket and look up under the top were the bucket rests. There will be a hose or a drain tube, Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers), that will fit into the hole or tube, carefully insert The Zip Tie and push it into the hole or tube. The Zip Tie will reach a bend in the tube that you need to gingerly, work it past the bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie, slowly pull it back out, while rotating it. This will dislodge the clog. Once you have the Zip Tie almost removed, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above should solve your problem. Hope this info helped you.

There may have been a failure in the area where water is collected and directed to the bucket but also check to determine whether the bucket is reinstalling correctly after it has been emptied.

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier FAD704DWD send water outside unit?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DWD, is putting the water that it collects out onto the floor as oppose to the bucket. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

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.

It appears the hole or tube that drains water into the bucket is clogged. To unclog it, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers, though) that will fit into the hole or tube. You will see this hole or tube, once you remove the bucket.

Carefully insert the Zip Tie and slowly push it in, until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will gingerly have to work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you reach the limit of usable Zip Tie. Slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. As you continue to pull it out, be prepared for some water to follow.

This should solve the problem. Hope it helped you.

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

My dehumidifier does not collect any water.


One of two things is happening here.

1. Either the compressor isn't running or...

2. The water is not being routed to the collection bucket properly. This dehumidifier has an option to connect to a hose that can be routed to a drain. Look in the back of the unit to see if you see a connection that could accomidate a garden hose. If you see this and there is no hose connected you may be dumping the water on the floor instead of the bucket. This could explain why your carpets are damp.
