The drainage port on the dehumidifier seems to clog and the basin fills up instead of the water draining out the hose .The filter is kept clean


You diagnosed the problem correctly. It occurs more than you would thin.

To solve the problem turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. If the hose is still connected to it, disconnect the hose and check it for clogs, first. If it's clear mob=ve on to the unit itself.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connector hole and tubing. Continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum, if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose for water flow..

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

Hope this helped you solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a new Frigadaire dehumidifier , 50 pint, which I have connected to a garden hose to be emptied into a drain in our basement. So far, after, two weeks, it fills up with water and we have to...


I'm really surprised that Frigidaire didn't know what the problem was. The drain tubing at the hose connection is clogged or the hose itself is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the bucket.

First, turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

The hose clog is easy to solve. Simply remove the hose and either look thru it for light at the other end or blow through it. Make sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet.

To clear a clog in the drain hose connector, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is appropriately sized to fit in the hose connector tubing.

Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you each the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Completing the above, should solve the problem. Then call Frigidaire and tell them how to solve the problem.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Leaking..no holes in bucket... sit correctly


From what you have described, it sounds like the tubing that drains water into the bucket is clogged.
To solve the problem, do the following:

1. Turn the Master On/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit.

2. Remove the bucket from it's holder. At the top of the bucket cavity, you should see a hole or
tubing that drains the water into the bucket.

3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is the
appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to
push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend,
until the Zip Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie.

4. Slowly start pulling it back out while rotating it (twisting it). This will break up any clogs. Once
you start nearing the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Following the steps above, should solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have an LG 45Ely6, the tank was reinstalled properly but it continues to leak. Can you help?


More than likely, the water drain tubing inside the unit is clogged& the water is not going into the bucket as it should. To solve this, do the following.

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF to OFF & Unplug the unit.
2. Remove the bucket and look up inside the bucket holder. You will see a tube or a hole that drains
the water into the bucket.
3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that is
appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie, until you reach a
bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie either
bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. While rotating (twisting) the Zip Tie, slowly remove it.
As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Our new unit will not drain through the garden hose into the drain it just keeps filling up the bucket


Despite it being new, it sounds like either the hose is clogged or to long (no more than 5 feet in length) or is kinked. The other may be, that the hose connection on the dehumidifier is clogged.

After checking the hose for clogs and length and finding nothing. The clog is in the hose connection tubing. To remove the clog do the following.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug it. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though, carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hose connector tubing, Continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will gingerly have to work the Zip Tie past this bend, until the Zip Tie either 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, be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Leaking on the floor


This can be caused by two things: The bucket is not inserted properly or the drain hole or tube inside the unit is clogged and needs to be unclogged.

When removing and reinstalling the bucket, make sure that it fits into the bucket holder "squarely" from top to bottom. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt downward at all.

To unclogged the drain hole or tube: Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit.
Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is appropriately sized to fit into the drain hole or tube. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and work it in slowly. You will reach a bend in the tubing and you will gingerly, have to work it past this bend. When the Zip Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie, slowly remove it while rotating (twisting) the Zip Tie. This will dislodge any clogs.

I have a Whirlpool Model AD25DSS1 Dehumidifier. I do not use the hose option but collect the water in the bucket. For some reason, the water is not going into the bucket but dumping on the floor. Looks...


It appears the hole or tube that drains water into the bucket is clogged. To unclog it, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers, though) that will fit into the hole or tube. You will see this hole or tube, once you remove the bucket.

Carefully insert the Zip Tie and slowly push it in, until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will gingerly have to work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you reach the limit of usable Zip Tie. Slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. As you continue to pull it out, be prepared for some water to follow.

This should solve the problem. Hope it helped you.

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.

To solve this, you will 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire Coat Hangers) that is appropriately sized to fit into the hole. To access this drain hole or tubing, remove the bucket and look in above where the bucket came out. You will see a hole or plastic tubing. Insert the Zip Tie carefully and work it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend and continue pushing it in, until it either bottoms out or your run out of workable Zip Tie.

My DeLonghi dehumidifier is collecting water but not into the bucket. Rather it leaks it all on the floor. I have cleaned the filter and even the coils to no avail. Please help.


The drain tube that drains the water into the bucket is clogged and needs to be cleared.

To do this, you will need at least an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar. (But, NO wire coat hangers) that will fit into the drain tube or hole. Carefully work the Zip Tie into the hole or tube and gently push it forward. You will reach a bend in the tubing, but you will have to gingerly work past this bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will help breakup the clog. Once you start reaching the end of the inserted Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above procedure should solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
