Dehumidifier reassembly problems

I have a GE #AHM65LKM1 dehumidifier. It's nearly 5 years old and was working great until it started leaking all over the floor. I (reluctantly) took it apart until I had access to the drain and found that it was clogged. After cleaning it out, I put everything back, but was unable to get the fan to turn without leaving the back off. I removed and reinstalled everything 4 times with slight variations, but obviously I'm still not doing something right. I tried running the thing without the back on and the fan turned, but no water was collected (overnight). Is there a way I can find out exactly how the beast should go together? It's not worth having it serviced.

Well I can appreciate your practical question and your efforts to reassemble your dehumidifier.  I did a search and the closest link that is similar to your situation is available for you to view.

days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction.  If this repair proves to be something not practical you can contact to discuss a newer dehumidifier.  I hope this helps and have a nice day.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the dehumidifier. Unfortunately, there is no breakdown available for this model. This would be one of those problems that will need to be seen, to determine, what is taking place and what will need to be done to correct it. I'm listing a site you can access for the nearest repair center to have a tech check it.

Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:


Sears Home Services.

 If you have any pictures that may help but again this could be difficult to determine, without actually seeing what is taking place.
