Question about DeLonghi Dehumidifiers

Open Question

I cannot get my DEM8.5/10 to drain continuously even though I have removed the rubber bung , have no kinks in hose and exit end of hose lower than outlet from machine. Any ideas?

The machine is 3 years old and during the past two winters I have been able to continuously drain. Dehumidifying would stop for a time if temp. was too low but then restart along with continuous drainage as temp. rose. This winter however after a cold spell dehumidifying restarted as before but condensate this time would only pass into internal tank which requires daily emptying.

SOURCE: Hose Drainage

yes, that is what the knockout port was designed for. Make sure the hose you get does actually thread onto the hose connection port before you punch out knock out. The hose should be a standard garden hose connector.

You can test it out by disconnecting the power cord, wait five minutes and plug it back in. If it retains the original settings you are good to go. If you are wondering before purchasing a new unit ask before you buy.

SOURCE: haier 30 pint dehumidifier continuous drain problem.

Many just attach the hose at the reservoir; from your description, Haier apparently has a separate location. Check that the point that the hose attaches has an opening (many don't, they expect you to drill it). It should then drain through gravity. Check to make sure that no part of the drain hose is higher than the bottom of the reservoir, otherwise it can't drain. It won't siphon because each time the the tank empties, the suction is broken and the siphoning can't continue.

P1 constantly goes on throughout the day. I do not know if I have the setting right or if the drain hose is connected properly.


First, the drain hose should not be longer than 5 feet and should be draining downward, with no kings or bends in the hose, The dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain the water.

As far as it running all day is concerned, some dehumidifiers have a "Constant" or "Continual" setting. Which means it runs constantly. Either while dehumidifying or defrosting. In addition, most Danby dehumidifier models are designed to have the fan run even when the compressor is not running. This is in order to circulate the air in the room and make the unit work more efficiently. This is a standard feature and cannot be programmed to stop.

Hope this answered you questions.

Can I set my dehumidifier to turn cycle on and off while I am traveling


Normally a dehumidifier will run based on the humidity found in the air in the room it is located in, although many can be set to run all the time.

I don't believe your model can be set to run next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday because you will be home and th NOT run next Friday and Saturday because you will be traveling, for example.

Your machine should run on automatic until the bucket fills with water at which time it should stop running until you empty the bucket. Many buckets offer the feature of adding a drain hose you can run to a drain somewhere. Some people have a floor drain they use for such purposes. Others I have known sit the device on the counter and drain into a sink or in the bath tub and drain that way.

For best dehumidifying results, you should run your machine all the time.

I hope I have answered your quesiton. Thanks for considering FixYa.com

Our dehumidifier is full of ice, is this normal or an indication of more serious problem. It is 3 1/2 years old and has been in constant use since purchased.


If the room tempature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

The dehumidifier runs all day but there is only a little water being produced. We have humidity set at 35%, and the actual readings are much higher. This is only a year or so old. The last machine worked...

My dehumidifier is frozen solid


Unplug it ... let it defrost.

Set it to a higher % humidity and make sure the fan is on its fastest speed. If you can set it not run continually (a selection option), do that. Also, set a small fan close by to move more air around the machine. If you have the option, put a hose on the collection device to drain to a sewer.

As your space starts to dry out, set the humidity setting to a lower number. This may take a week or more.

I believe perfect humidity is slightly above 50% - no need to try to get to 40% except in unusual circumstances. If that is the case, get a second device. Or, if your space is large, you may want to add a second device.


I hope this info helps you and your problem is solved.

After reading comments and complaints from other frustrated Maytag owners, I just went out and bought a new LG EnergyStar dehumidifier. I'm taping the receipt inside a plastic bag, along with the user manual, to the side of the machine. Hope this one works for a LONG time! Ronnisue
