Question about Whirlpool Dehumidifiers
The drain tube that fills the bucket is clogged. To clear the clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that will fit into the drain tube or hole. You will need to turn the unit OFF and unplug it before clearing the clog. As well as, removing the bucket.
Carefully threat the Zip Tie into the hole or tube and work it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it bottoms out or you run out of workable Zip Tie. Then slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. When the Zip Tie is almost all the way out, be prepared for water to follow.
Hope this helped you solve the leaky problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Check to make sure your drain hose connector plug is properly fitted. If this is loose or missing, then some of the condensate will drain out onto the floor. See page 6 of the manual for detailed instructions and illustrations about the drain hose connector and the plug.

Hi friend, thank you for your post!
I have identified that a few possibilities to why water is leaking from the bottom of your dehumidifier could be a crack inside your bucket or condensation from the bucket. I would remove your bucket and look it over to see if you can locate any visible cracks or chips. How much water is leaking from your dehumidifier? If you can provide any further information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt
