Kenmore dehumidifier, Model number 580.54501800 still getting 'bucket full' after replacing the switch. Now what?.

Replaced the switch with new switch (part number 6600A30003C). Still displays the same error (01) and the bucket full lite is on. The bucket is not full. I removed the bucket and pressed the switch several times as recommended and get the same result..."bucket full" The humidifier is only two years old. The bucket has been emptied and replaced less than a dozen times. I have a hose connected to the dehumidifier so I don't really need the bucket. How can I get the dehumidifier to work? Not sure I want to spend a lot of money on what seems to be a very poor appliance. Your help and suggestions are appreciated.

I'm having the same problem. I think it may be the float. I took both lids off the bucket and the float looks like it's supposed to have to have two prongs that allow it to fit into holes in the top of the bucket. Mine only has one prong because the other must have broken off or worn down so it doesn't seat in the holes correct;y, making it not interact with the red switch correctly. Is it supposed to be making contact with the switch when it is full or when it is empty. I'm guessing full. If I just remove the float altogether, won't that fix my problem?

I removed the float and put the bucket back in but still same message. I also taped the switch so that it was depressed and put the bucket back in but still same error message.
