Garden hose connected but water fills tub

We have a garden hose hooked up according to the instructions in the book, but the water keeps filling the bucket vs. draining through the hose. Any suggestions of what we can try or should we just return and try another?

The dehumidifier runs just fine with the exception of water filling up in the bucket. I want the water to drain continuously into a drain. How do i fix this?

well 1st not all machines are made to be a continuous drain type , if so your machine would have come with instructions on how to convert it over for this function , aside from that a little low tech approach to this (not too great looking though) is to drill /melt a hole into drain bucket just big enough to allow a hose bulk head fitting to be screwed into it (hardware store item) and use a simple garden hose for the drain connection

Have model 043-6121-4 connected with a garden hose yet the bucket continues to fill.

Where are you running the hose to drain it? If the end of the hose is higher than the top of the bucket, then the bucket will fill and overflow. The drain hose must drain out into some place that is at least lower than the top of the bucket. That way the bucket won't overflow. Basic physics.

I have hooked up a garden hose and the unit still fills the unit's container. What am I doing wrong?

You have to plug the hole for the bin if you want to use a hose to drain unit.

How do i make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it

Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

Can I hook this up so itd empies directly into the floor drain?

yes, there should be a bucket that fills with water, on the outside of the bucket, there should be a cap you can screw off, once off you can attach a garden hose to that bucket and the other end goes in the drain.

I have the hose hooked up to the back but it keeps filling the tank and shuts off when it's full ,how do you just use the hose to drain

I believe you have to put a plug to drain that drains into the tank ,then it can only drain out the hose.

Need manual for fedder dehumidifer to hook up drain hose. need to know were drain hose connects.

Pull out the water collection tray. You will see a small pipe (about 1/2" diameter) in the top of the area where the tray came from. This is the "drain" that fills the tray. Connect a hose to this pipe and run the hose to a floor drain if you have one. I used a section from an old garden hose for my unit. There also may be a small opening in the back wall of the dehumidifier to route the hose more aesthetically.

Tank still fills when we are using direct drain feature

check to see that the hose isn't clogged, and that the hose runs down hill from the tank all the way to the drain. if it is higher than the tank at any point in its path it will not drain. you may put the dehumidifier on top of a small platform to aid drainage. also check that the knockout removed so there is a hole to let the water go from the tank to the hose?
