Why is water going to the bucket instead of getting pumped out the hose? Does this mean the pump has quick working?


It is possible that the drain hose is not properly positioned. It is very fussy about that. Here is a link to the manual on PDF. See pages 8 thru 12.

What size copper drain line do I need to run for a Zenith model ZD300 Dehumidifier. We can not use the bucket. Inspector of job wants a copper drain run for the Dehumidifiers.


That's got to be the dumbest thing I have heard today. This is a portable unit and is not equipped to have a copper line connected the the continuous drain. Only a 48' long garden hose is necessary to drain to a floor drain. Now, if you're trying to drain some other way. Keep in find that this model does not have a pump. It relies strictly on gravity to drain. In other words it will NOT drain UP.

Hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.

If the hose adapter/hose is connected to the condensate drain correctly but water is still leaking into the tank then their must be a blockage in the pipe.

If you need any further assistance then please just ask.

How to attach drainage hose to drain automatically


Because your model dehumidifier has an unusual continuous drain hook up, as compared to other brands, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your model. You will find the information on page 3. You can downlaod and print the, manual for future reference.

http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/123922.pdf

One thing the Owner's Manual fails to mention is the length of the garden hose that can be attached to the unit. It should not exceed 5 feet. As drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

I hope this has helped you. Please let e know. Thanks.

We have Danby Model DDR557HE-7 and cannot locate our Manual. We need to disconnect hose and have excess water go to bucket. How is this done?? If we had copy of Manual we wld be able to search same...


All Danby dehumidifiers, regardless of the model number operate the same way.
The link below to a 50 pint model should provide all the info you need.

http://www.danby.ca/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DDR5009%2C_6009%2C_7009REE_EFOM.pdf

However, I think you'll find that draining into a bucket is not an option. As the hose drain relies entirely on gravity to drain. So, it will not drain down and then up into a bucket. The hose drainage method, is designed to drain into a floor drain or a sump.

Hope this helps you.

How do I install a hose so this humidifier drains automatically?


Look at the drain pan, it might have a garden hose connection that you might have to knock out, mine is not the same model but it may be similiar, and then run it to a floor drain or such. Good Luck

Where can we get a part to plug the hole so the water will drain out the hose? The hole is not round so it makes it more difficult to plug. HDN 655E 65 pints Thank you. Bob


Bob, you don't need to plug the hole for the water to drain out the hose. Once you remove the hose connection cap and connect a hose, no longer than 5 feet (a garden hose will work), the water will drain from the hose and not into the bucket. That is, unless the drain tube is clogged. In which case, an 18" long, plastic, Zip Tie, appropriately sized to fit in the hole, works well to unclog it.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hooked up garden hose for continuous mode but it Problem with the Whirlpool AD35USS Dehumidifier Hooked up garden hose for continuous mode but it seems the water is going into the bucket and not through...


First, the hose should not exceed 5 feet in length. There is no pump in that model dehumidifier. It relies totally on gravity to drain through the hose.

If all of the above is as stated above, I suspect that hose or the tubing inside the hose connecting is clogged. Which forces the water into the bucket rather than the hose.

To remove the clog in the unit, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar, that is appropriately sized to fit into the hose connection/drain hole. NO wire coat hangers though.

Carefully feed the Zip Tie in to the hose connection. About 6" in the tubing will bend. You need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie to work with. The slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating it. This will breakup clog. As you near the end of the Zip Tie coming out, be prepared for some water to follow. DO NOT perform any of this while the unit is plugged in to the wall outlet.

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