How to make unit drain through hose, instead of filling bucket?


Assuming you have a hose connected to the bucket for drainage, it is necessary that the end of the hose be lower than the top level of the bucket or the bucket will fill before the hose drains. I see many people who have their units on the floor and run a hose up into a sink and wonder why the bucket fills. Gravity works.....if you cannot find a lower place to drain the water then you must raise the unit up on a table or stand of some sort to get the bucket higher than the drain.

The bucket fills up but we have to put a towel down because it leaks all over the floor. What could be wrong ?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the bucket fills with water and overflows on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DUD. Please make sure your dehumidifier is installed on a level that will support it with a full bucket of water. If the dehumidifier is moving when it fills with water then this could possibly be the cause of the bucket overflowing. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Stopped working


Does it act the same as if the bucket was removed? Likely your fill bucket switch is not connecting. Remove the bucket, press the switch and try to run the unit. If it powers up and "works" then you need to make sure the bucket has a good connection with the switch. If this did not work, remove the connectors to the switch and electrical tape them together and try running this again. If it works, your switch is bad. Replace. If you leave it electrical tape connected, the unit will not turn off when the bucket is full.

Water fills in the bucket and will not drain


I've got the same problem. It drained through the hose for 6 months, but recently stopped and now fills the bucket. I connected a new hose, but that didn't help. I found some debris inside the dehumidifier (where you connect a hose to), but removing that didn't help. I may try taking the unit apart to see if somehow a cricket or some sludge got built up inside.
I'll post my findings. Hopefully it won't be too complex or nasty!!

50 pint dehumidifier has drain hose connected but fills up the drain bucket and stops running....


safety switch is turning off the dehumidifier....you need to drain out the bucket more often....or put the drain hose into an actual drain....ive seen some people run a small plastic hose from the dehumidifier to the sump pump hole in their basement.

Power lose


I have a 45 pint. I have to slide the bucket in and out of the unit multiple times. Make sure to wait a few seconds after each time to see if it will recognize no water (sometimes the red light comes on, but then changes it mind). Also, I've found that leaving the bucket a little crooked will make it respond. It sucks, I know. Mine is only a year old too. Should not be a problem like this!
