Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Most likely the sensor assy has failed. See section 6 of this link:

If your full light is on then check to make sure your collection bucket is not full. Empty as required.

If the bucket is already empty and the full light is still on, then you have a problem with the float level switch. This is a common problem on all models and is usually just the result of an improperly placed bucket interfering with the float mechanism. Take out the bucket and try jiggling the little float assembly with your finger to see if you can loosen or dislodge it. Make sure the unit is set to MAXIMUM so it will turn on right away if you manage to fix it that way. If this works, then try to see if you can tell what was interfering with the float mechanism and correct it.

Good luck.

We just bought the DE45EJ. We removed it from the box and plugged it in....nothing. No lights, no beeps, no hint of life. The power source is good. The room temperature is normal. The bucket isn't full...


If you just purchased and it won't turn ON, don't waste time trying to fix the unit. Return it to the place of purchase for a replacement unit or a refund.

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.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Kenmore Dehumidifier wont turn on. There is power to it ,all the indicator lights are on, it just wont start. What's wrong?


Check the over fill switch in the tank. If this is stuck it thinks the tank is full and won't come on. After that your compressor may be bad or the starter for the compressor. The Dehumidifier is basically a small air conditioner that condenses moisture in the air then it drains into the tank.

Our bucket full light is on but we only have a hose running out to the drain. My husband shorted out that circuit but the light still comes on and we can't turn on the unit. Any help with this? Thanks


The reason the light cam of the first time was because the either the attached hose is clogged or the hose connection of the unit is clogged. When this happens, the bucket full light comes ON, because of the clog or the bucket was not reinstalled properly and didn't trip the bucket, safety removal, trigger switch. Be sure the bucket is reinstalled so the the Top and Bottom fit squarely into the bucket holder.

Hopefully, your husband can undo what he's already done, clear the clogs and the unit may run again, as it should.

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

I have an LHD6594EBL dehumidifier that won't run and it keeps saying the bucket is full but the bucket is empty, we have a hose attached and don't use the bucket,


Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.

To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The bucket full light won't go out and the


Try resetting the bucket, making sure that it is set properly and triggers the safety lever/switch. If that doesn't solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If the bucket is installed properly, the unit should revert back to the original factory settings.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

Dont spend to much time trying to repair dehumidifier they are very cheap to replace. Most dehumidifiers have lots of problems because they are made so cheap. Just replace the dehumidifier you will tank me in the end.
