Question about GE 30 Pint Portable Dehumidifier
I hooked up the hose to allow constant running but the tank fills rather than draining thru the drain hose?

Others have had this problem, and are annoyed by it. One fellow in an Amazon Review fixed it, and here is what he said:
This dehumidifier came with the house I bought 6 months ago. It sucks the water out of the air very well. I had to empty the bucket once a day. I finally figured out how to attach a hose (you have to punch through a rubber barrier with the adapter) and haven't had any problems. The unit is very noisy and I can hear it humming from the 2nd floor. When I move it around a few inches, the noise reduces, but it gets loud again after a while. I might wrap the non-functioning sides with foam to help with the noise.
Not sure what rubber barrier he's referring to, but maybe it will make sense to you- hope so.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Paul, there is a clog either in the hose or in the connecter tubing you have the hose connected to. Use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. NO wire cost hangers, though) that will fit into the hole at the hose connection. Carefully insert it into the hole and work in until you reach the bend of the tubing. Here's the tricky part, as you have to work it past this bend. Once you do and the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip tie, slowly pull it back out, while rotating it. This will loosen any clogs, so be prepared for water to follow.
Also. keep in mind that the hose should be no longer than 5'. As the dehumidifier relies on gravity to drain the water through the hose.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
