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.

On my unit, I found the drain hose moving out of position from the vibrating dehumidifier. The plastic pipe included a tab with an arrow on it. Once pushed through the drain hose hole, this tab lodged the pipe and attached hose into position.

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

Direct drain


2 possibilities: #1The port that you plugged the hose onto need to be drilled so the water can come out and enter the hose. #2 The hose cannot be higher at ANY point than the bucket. Physics rules apply and the water will always fill the lowest point. Keep the hose low or raise the dehumidifier up.

Hooked up garden hose but tank still fills with water and shuts down when full. Hose is not plugged


George, the hose may not be plugged, but the hose connector tubing in the unit is. To solve the problem, do the following.

Turn the unit OFF and Unplug it.

Disconnect the hose from the unit. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or 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 for 60 minutes or more and monitor the drain hose. The drain hose should be no longer than 5 feet and must slope downward, with out any bends or kinks.

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. Please let me know. Thanks.

Water overflows when filled how do I adjust?


Remove the tank and locate the switch and 'teeter' (that the tank sits on). Make sure the tank is able to move when filled. You will have to adjust the position of the switch to allow the filled (teetered) tank to shut the device off.

Is it possible for you to drain the water into a nearby floor drain using a hose?

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Doesn't run, turn on or anything............I think it has died. Bought in 2004. Any suggestions? 65 pint/2 speed. Hose connection to drain, no reservoir needed.


the full bucket switch on these models goes bad, o.k.,i know,you said its hooked to a hose to the drain so the bucket never fills up,but,seriously,test the "bucket full" (in the upper right hand area of where the bucket installs) shut-off switch,as this will kill one of these units if it goes bad as it carries all the units power through it at all times,i replace many of these every season,if this switch goes bad it shuts off the entire unit

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 :-)

Help! Water keeps filling the tank instead of going out the hose


Had the same problem. Make sure you tighten the house a little with pliers. Also, make sure the dehumidifier is up a lot higher than where you're draining it into. Mine drains into a utility sink. But I have the dehumidifier propped up onto a dresser. I cut a small piece of hose to run into the sink. Seems to be working now.

It will take 5 min or so to establish a water flow, so be patient after you hook everything up. Good luck.

Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.
