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.

Frank it sounds like to me that it needs to be shut off a while, Was there a power outage or did you happen to shut it off and try to restart it real fast. If so then the compressor can not push the freon through. let it sit for about 8 to 10 minutes so the pressure drops and then restart it. Otherwise it will just burn up the compressor

these units are notorious for losing their refrigerant charge,if the compressor isn't running that is one reason why, have a gauge put on the system to see sealed system pressures otherwise the low-pressure switch could be bad,you can test this with a continuity meter
