Were all the packing materials removed from inside unit before start up , lots of times one misses a small piece of tape they add at factory to catch bucket , to keep it in place during shipping , this will prevent the unit from working as it makes control box think there's no bucket in place to catch water

Hose is connected but water goes into bucket


Did you punch out (or cut) the plug that the hose connects to? If not, its blocking the water from draining to the hose.

Also, make sure the unit is higher than the drain and that the hose is not kinked or clogged.

Please rate 4 stars if this is helpful. Thanks and good luck!

Why is my Kenmore Energy Star 50 pint model 251-50501012 dehumidifier leaking water after I disconnected the drain hose


If you reconnect the drain hose, make sure that it lays flat from the dehumidifier and into the sump pump hole. I did that and it solved my problem of water leaking onto the floor.

Water leaks out of the bottom of the humidifier and the bucket does not fill up. The water just leaks out.


Based upon my experience with the same problem on my Kenmore 54701 last summer: The condensate water collects in a plastic pan below the coils. This pan has a single drain hole where the water flows down into the bucket. When I suddenly found water puddling on the floor instead of in the bucket, I opened up the unit, and I found that the collection pan's drain hole had become blocked by "bioslime". I cleaned out the goo from the drain hole, and the problem was solved.

The coils frost up for Kenmore dehumidifier model 580.53701300 even the temp is > 70. the fan works fine. there is a few water in the water bucket. the humidity> 65%.


check the drain tube for blockage, maybe run a small rubber hose to clear out blockage so condensation can drain freely. Worth a try worked for me

I have a Kenmore 54501 dehumidifier


hi,

somewhere there is a "knockout" or "plug" or something similar you have to remove or replace it to get it to drain through the hose, there should be some documentation in the owners manual about it, try troubleshooting in the back of the manual. If not look directly into the hose outlet and see if theres a plastic plug there, if there is use a screwdriver or something similar to GENTLY remove the plug, you may have to just study the machine when its running to get a better idea of how the water drains, maybe the machine came with something like it in one of the plastic bags the accessories came in.

good luck
