It is likely that the water filter needs to be replaced if the dehumidifier is not collecting water.
The water filter should be replaced every 6 months for optimal performance. If it is not collected water, it may also be a sign that the dehumidifier is not draining properly. In this case, try cleaning out the drain tube located at the back of the unit.
