Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier
It sounds as though the collection pail is not installed correctly, or the hose fitting cap is loose. Make sure that the pail is seated correctly & the cap is tight. Inspect the bottom for rust perforation, too, although this is a long shot. If this fails, then the cold coil may have broken away from it's mount, & is dripping in the wrong place. Inspection with the cover off will reveal any misalignment or broken components. Repair as required.

So I just had this happen with my Frigidaire fad704dwd dehumidifier. I went to basement and heard it running and sounded off. The compressor was running fan was off which is bad and humidity said 30. I then pushed the off button and it stayed running. I was able to fix it. To make long story short it was a bad ground. I took the plastic back, sides, and front off. There was a green ground (main ground) and Green/yellow ground (fan ground) on the front coil with a bunch of rust. Removed the grounds connected them both together and cleaned the surface area and used a new stainless screw nut and screw to remount the wires to evaporator coil. Everything started working fine after that and I put it back together. Good Luck
Hey friend, thanks for your post!
It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt
