Question about Maytag M3DH30B2A Dehumidifier
After not having used in 4 years, my dehu seems to be missing the attachment that the hose hooks to. There's the tube that goes into the tank, but seems like there was a hose nipple to attach to. I never used the tank.

Hey ya! To fix this u need to block that hose connection under the Dehumidifier. This will then re direct the flow to the Bucket collection mode. I have the same problem and resolved it this way after pullng mine apart. It looks like by default that hose connection at the bottom should have a plug/cap on it and after turning on ur dehumidifier this fills up then once full it starts to over flow into the bucket... Seems a strange design but thats how they have done it.
Hope this helps others.

No just connect the hose and open the hole to the unit to drain and return to usauge. it will fill to the drain opening and drain.

Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,
Hope this helps to solve your problem.

Yes, there is a knock out hole at the back of your unit. Refer to page 3 of this manual for the exact position:

You may not have the hose adapter installed properly. If it does not connect with the black drain pipe inside the unit, water will bypass the hose adapter and go into the bucket.
I own this dehumidifier. To connect it to a garden hose for drainage you first need the special connector pipe/adapter that comes with the unit. It's white plastic and about a foot long, It may be stored in the top of the bucket drawer, where it ships from the factory. Your hose connects to the threaded fitting on one end. The other end is inserted into the hole in the back of the unit. You slide it straight in until it mates with a drain connection inside the unit. You can see this black pipe connection if you pull the bucket drawer all the way out and look in the very top right hand corner of the opening of the unit. Once the white tube is fully and correctly inserted you'll find two plastic tabs on the tube near the hose connection. The larger tab points straight up and blocks the tube from being inserted too far. The smaller tab points down and hooks into the slot in the bottom of the round opening to keep it from getting knocked loose. Your dehumidifier should now drain through the hose instead of into the bucket. Of course, be sure your hose is routed across a floor to a drain or sump pump located lower than the unit, since the water flows by gravity.
