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.

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.

Whirlpool AD50USS Dehumidifier WILL NOT DRAIN THROUGH HOSE


I have a similar model. There are two drains, one for the hose and one directly into the bucket. The hose one is supposed to be lower, but I had to put a 3/8 inch block under the right side of the unit to get the water to favor the hose instead of the bucket. Another possibility is that the far end of the hose is higher than the near end. If you can't lower it, you can put the whole dehumidifier up on blocks. One other thing to check is that the hose has a rubber washer in it where it connects to the unit. Use a tissue to see if this connection is dry. If it leaks, it will just drip into the bucket.
Good luck!

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.

Our new unit will not drain through the garden hose into the drain it just keeps filling up the bucket


Despite it being new, it sounds like either the hose is clogged or to long (no more than 5 feet in length) or is kinked. The other may be, that the hose connection on the dehumidifier is clogged.

After checking the hose for clogs and length and finding nothing. The clog is in the hose connection tubing. To remove the clog do the following.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug it. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though, carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hose connector tubing, Continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will gingerly have to work the Zip Tie past this bend, until the Zip Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then pull the Zip Tie out slowly, while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you reach the inserted end, be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

We have a Frigidaire 70 pint dehumidifier (model LAD704DUL). We hooked up the hose so we could use the continuous drain feature but the unit just keeps draining into the bucket. We followed the...


This happens quite frequently. It''s due to a clog in the hose or the a clog in the hose connection tubing. If you unit has a float valve in the top of the bucket, be sure that it's not stuck in the UP position. To resolve clogging problem, do the following:

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Disconnect the hose from the unit
and check for clogs and remove them if necessary.

2. If no clogs were found in the hose, the clog is in the hose connection tubing. Use and 18"
long, plastic ZIP Tie, appropriately sized to fit in the hose connector tubing. Carefully insert the
Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire coat hangers, though) into the hole and continue to push
it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until
the ZIP Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable ZIP Tie. Then while rotating (Twisting) the
ZIP Tie slowly pull it out. As you reach the inserted end of the ZIP Tie, be prepared for some
water to follow.

That should solve the problem. Be sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet and that it slopes downward from the unit, with no kinks in it.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know, Thanks.

I have a danby ddr7009ree humidifier which I am trying to drain with the hose in the back however water just keeps filling in the front bucket. I have removed the rubber plug from the back of the unit.


The continuous drain hole (where the hose is inserted) is clogged. To remove the clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. But NO wire cost hangers) that will fit into the hole.
Insert it slowly and push until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then, while rotating it, pull it out slowly. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also make sure that the drain hose, when reinserted is not crimped and the end is lower than the drain hose connection. The unit does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain water through the hose.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

How is the external tube for draining outside connected to the dehumidifier. Does the tube insert into the right angle nipple, then the threded end conected to a drain hose?


No. The tube inserts straight into the drain hole. Follow the 4 sets below.

1. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
2. Remove the drain-hole cover.
3. Push hose connector tightly into the drain-hole on Rear Grille.
4. Press the hose down and make sure the "Arrow" on the tab is pointing upward.

NOTE:
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. Be sure the hose lays flat and has no kinks, as it will not drain properly.

Have hose hooked up but it does not drain. Compartment fills with water and needs dumped manually. Want the hose to work so twice-a-day dumping in basement not needed. Thanks!


You connected a hose to the hose outlet on the catch tank ... right? The tank will not drain even though there are no kinks in the hose and the end is lower than the tank, right? Did you put a hole in the tank before you attached the hose? I will bet not ... and I will not laff at you ... I did the same.

Put a hole in the tank (where the hose attaches), reattach the hose and all will be well.

I want to change my deLonghi Dehumidifier from emptying into the container to continuous flow into the sink. I was given this from a friend, not new and dont have a manuel or the hose to change it over....


You may have a older model that has a collector tank with a protruding tube on it. If so just cut the end off the tube and slide on a piece of clear 9.5mm internal diameter PVC / Rubber tubing suitable for a fish tank air / water pump and secure it with a nylon tie wrap.

Continuous external draining for newer models with clear collection tanks.
If the appliance is to be operated for long periods of time but you are unable to empty the tank, you are recommended to use the continuous drain facility.
• Drill the inside of the drain spout using a small drill bit. This is located behind the rear grlle in the lower centre of the opening.
• Fasten the rubber hose to the spout. For models without drain hoses supplied, we suggest you purchase a rubber hose around 2m long, with an internal diameter of 9.5 mm.
• Make sure that the hose is not higher than the spout, otherwise water will remain in the tank; also check that the hose is not twisted. N.B: Keep the rubber bung. You will need it to plug the hose or close the spout if you revert to draining into the tank

Drain hose not working


Hi, had the same problem. Not a glogging one. I have the model DDR503H. If it is insisting on filling the reservoir, it is because you haven't put the cap you removed from de back of the unit to plug the hose on the tank water exit. You have to first remove the tank and on the roof of this space, you will see the water tank exit where you can screw the cap removed from the back. You place back the tank into the unit and now the water won't have other choice then leak thru the hose. Also. to clean up the filter, I don't need to unscrew the top cover. I just remove the tank and on the roof of the space, there is a grey handle with arrows on it and I just pulled down, it comes out and you can then clean it up.

Hope this help,

Steeve
