Why does water leak onto the floor instead of draining into the tank?

There is no hose attached, just an open hose connector in the back.

The hose connector should be capped or a hose connected and directed to a floor drain.

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier send water outside bucket?


Good Afternoon Jean,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DWD, is putting the water that it collects out onto the floor as oppose to the bucket. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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.

Why doesn't water drain into the hose?


My dehumidifier was dumping condensate onto the floor instead of through the hose to the floor drain. The solution turned out to be making sure the unit was level. No worries since then.

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

/my dehumidifier has a hose attachment on the back. how does that work?


The hose attachment is used in place of the water collection bucket, to drain the water directly into a floor drain or a sump pump holding tank. A garden hose is connected to the "hose attachment" and run to the floor drain or sump pump holding tank. However, it will not drain UP, only DOWN.

Hope this helped.

How do I connect the hose? lost manual


If you asking about the drain hose. There's what looks like a hose hookup on the back of the unit, down near the floor. It's probably plastic and is threaded to accept a garden hose. You may have to carefully knock out the opening of the plastic connector, to allow the water to drain into the connected hose. The hose then should go to a floor drain or sump pump. Keep in mind, the water will not drain up.

I have the hose hooked up to the back but it keeps filling the tank and shuts off when it's full ,how do you just use the hose to drain


I believe you have to put a plug to drain that drains into the tank ,then it can only drain out the hose.

When you install the drain tube, be sure that it is placed into the drain hole in the dehumidifier. You then will be able to "latch" the tube at the hose end by lowering onto the outer hole opening. This maintains a tight connection and the water will drain properly.

Problem with draining water through hose


I bought one of the FDL70S1 Frigidaire dehumidifiers today for my shop, and found that the $5 hose I bought to drain it through the floor wouldn't tighten down completely, allowing the hose to twist and wobble, a sure indication that it was not water tight. Simply adding a second washer, as described in another answer here, allowed me to tighten the hose sufficiently to produce a tight fit with no play between the hose and the dehumidifier. It hasn't leaked. I know it is a threads-per-inch issue, and I am stumped as to why Frigidaire would supply these units with a different thread pitch than the standard GHT (garden hose thread) 3/4" - 11.5 tpi. The threads on the unit appear to be 3/4 NPS - 14 tpi. Go figure!

Drain hose not working


Hi, had the same problem. Not a glogging one. I have the model DDR503H. If it is insisting on filling the reservoir, it is because you haven't put the cap you removed from de back of the unit to plug the hose on the tank water exit. You have to first remove the tank and on the roof of this space, you will see the water tank exit where you can screw the cap removed from the back. You place back the tank into the unit and now the water won't have other choice then leak thru the hose. Also. to clean up the filter, I don't need to unscrew the top cover. I just remove the tank and on the roof of the space, there is a grey handle with arrows on it and I just pulled down, it comes out and you can then clean it up.

Hope this help,

Steeve
