You may have a trap in the line accidently. The hose should make a straight gradual downhill run to a drain area. If it goes up and down up and down it will create a trap that will stop the water. Also try blowing through the line to make sure it is clear. Good luck!

Water will not drain out hose even though hose is attached. It still just drains into the tank. This is a pain since it is in the basement.


I had the same problem....raised the unit 3 feet off floor, the drain hose is 4feet long... But the secret to getting unit to drain into hose if unit is set to Continous is...... TILT the unit back about 5 degrees with a half inch piece of wood under front wheels and She will drain into hose instead of bucket.... ......goldiejud@netscape.net

Leaking dehumidifier When hose is attached it still drains into cotainer


The hose of the hose connector on the unit may be clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the bucket.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Disconnect the hose from the unit and check the hose for a clog. If none is found, the clog is in the hose connection tubing, inside the dehumidifier. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tire or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though). Insert the tip of the Zip Tie into the hole and continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. Gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then pull the Zip Tie out slowly while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie be prepared, as some water may follow. Reattach the hose, plug the unit in and turn it ON. Set the humidity extraction level at 35% and monitor the hose for water running out. Be sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet and is sloped downward to the floor drain. As drainage relies on gravity.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The water/mositure won't discharge through the hose into the drain; instead, it collects in the bucket.


Hi! Either the hose is clogged or the hose connection on the unit or the interior tubing to the hose connection is clogged. OR the hose is over 5 feet long. OR the hose is not sloped downward from the unit. The unit depends on gravity to drain thru a hose.

To clear a clog in the hose connection and/or the interior tubing:

Use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is appropriately sized to fit the inside of hose connect and tubing (NO wire coat hangers though). Carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hole and continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must, gingerly work it past the bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Slowly pull it back out while rotating (twisting it). This will help dislodge any clogs. When you start to reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. 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.

The water fills the bucket and bypasses the hose I have attached wich should just empty the water into a drain.


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.

I have a hose discharging water from back . but bucket still fills up. ive checked hose for clogs ive checked pump for proper operation. ive tried to block drip spouts going to bucket that just made water...


The clog is not in the hose. It's in the hose connection tube inside the unit. To unclog it use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is flexible and will fit into the hole. NO wire coat hangers though. Gingerly work it into the hose connection hose, until you reach a bend in the tubing. This is the tricky part, as you have to get past this bend. Be careful and work it past the bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie, slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will dislodge the clog. Once the Tie is almost all the way out, be prepared for water to follow.

One other thing. If the unit stops operating check that the bucket full light is illuminated. If it is remove the bucket and empty the contents and then check the seal between the hose and the drip tray. If there is a small leak then replace the hose gasket and re-tighten the hose.

FYI - Your humidifier does not have a pump. It relies entirely on gravity to drain, when you use the hose connection.

That should solve the problem.

Have hose hooked up but it does not drain. Compartment fills with water and needs dumped manually. Want the hose to work so twice-a-day dumping in basement not needed. Thanks!


You connected a hose to the hose outlet on the catch tank ... right? The tank will not drain even though there are no kinks in the hose and the end is lower than the tank, right? Did you put a hole in the tank before you attached the hose? I will bet not ... and I will not laff at you ... I did the same.

Put a hole in the tank (where the hose attaches), reattach the hose and all will be well.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com :-)

Fdk45p1 dehumidifier


Has anyone figured out how to get a 25-pint Frigidaire dehumidifier (model FDD25S1) to put water out the drain hose for continuous draining instead of into the bucket? It appears to be impossible to connect the hose in a way to avoid water leaking into the bucket.
