When I connect a hose to the dehumidifier, it doesn't pull the water out and send it to the sump pump -- it goes directly into the bucket......do I need a special connection for the hose or something? ...


Patti, the problem is not the drain hose (unless it's clogged or exceeds 48" in length). The internal drain tubing to the hose connection is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the water collection bucket. To unclog the tubing do the following:

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection 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 it for water flow. It may take 10 to 15 minutes for the water to start flowing, so be patient.

I hop the helps you, Patti and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have had my Danby ddr606 unit for 4 years in my basement. It has been running with a hose connected to it that allows the water to drain in the sump pump so I do not have to empty the "bucket"...


Yes. Either the hose is clogged or the hose connection and it's tubing is clogged. When that happens, water is automatically diverted to the bucket. The hose is easy to check for a blockage. Simply remove it and either blow thru it or look thru it for daylight.

To clear the hose connection and tubing. Use an 18" long appropriately sized Zip Tie. Insert the end of the Zip Tie into the hose connection and carefully work it in. You will reach a bend in the tubing that you need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past. Continue to insert it until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The slowly pill the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you reach the tip of the Zip Tie, be prepared as some water may follow. Hook the hose back up, plug the unit in and turn it On. Set the humidity extraction level at 35%. Monitor the end of the hose for water flow, after about 15 - 20 minutes. If water doesn't start to flow, turn the unit OFF and repeat the above procedure. Also, remove the air intake filter and clean it if necessary.

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

DEHUMIDFIER STILL WORKS JUST WONT DRAIN WITH HOSE.


If it won't drain thru the hose, but is draining into the bucket instead, the problem lies either in the hose or the hose connection on the unit. Either one of the other is clogged. Remove the hose first and check for a clog, If none there, it's in the hose connection on the unit.

Use an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) and carefully insert it into the hose connection opening. Continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. Work it gingerly pass this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then, while rotating (twisting) it, slowly pull it back out. As you reach the end, be prepared for some water to follow.

Also, keep in mind the hose should be no longer than 5 feet and slope downward from the humidifier. It has no pump and relies entirely on gravity to drain the water.

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

Despite having a hose connected to the drain my dehumidifer still drains into the bucket. Is there a setting or a switch that I need to change?


sommrhome - You're having to empty it, because either the drain hose you have connected to the unit is clogged or the drain hole at the hose connection is clogged. Therefor, the water is drained into the tank, rather than the drain hose. Also, the drain hose should not be any longer than 5' and must drain down, as the dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies totally on gravity.

Remove the hose and check it for clogs. If clear check the drain hose connection, using an 18" long appropriately sized Zip Tie. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. Gingerly work past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The while slowly pulling it out, rotate the Zip Tie. This will dislodge the clog. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie removal, be prepared for some water to follow. CAUTION: BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE ABOVE TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

The above should solve the problem for you. 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.

I have a danby ddr7009ree humidifier which I am trying to drain with the hose in the back however water just keeps filling in the front bucket. I have removed the rubber plug from the back of the unit.


The continuous drain hole (where the hose is inserted) is clogged. To remove the clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. But NO wire cost hangers) that will fit into the hole.
Insert it slowly and push until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then, while rotating it, pull it out slowly. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also make sure that the drain hose, when reinserted is not crimped and the end is lower than the drain hose connection. The unit does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain water through the hose.

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

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.

How can I fix my Kenmore portable washer 100.49722990?


Most common cause for water leak
is around the water level sensor connection, a small hose from the tank bottom rear, to the control panel, if loose or removed it is a small constant leak. if loose snip 1/8 inch off the hose refit and pull a zip tie around it tight

if it were the drain hose or pump, it would usually be a very large leak that increases when the pump is running and floods the laundry

Serious leak, please help


The problem is the air hose that goes to the pressure switch. If you remove the washer casing, and inspect the wash tub on the right hand side you will see a plastic fitting near the bottom of the tub called the "air dome". There is a small rubber hose that is supposed to be attached to this fitting. This is the pressure switch hose. Sometimes they come loose and fall off. To prevent this from happening again, reattach the hose and place a small zip tie around it at the point where it connects to the air dome. Do not overtighten as it could damage the air dome fitting. Just make it snug.

Another possiblity is a drain pump that has started leaking. It is located in front of the wash tub, however, and usually doesn't leak as seriously as the leak you have. They typically create small stress crack along the seams and develop small leaks when they go bad. The pump is not serviceable and does not come apart. Once bad, they have to be replaced.

If you click on the following link, it explains how to get the washer case off so you can inspect the washer for your leak.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

I know the instructions are for replacing the water pump. I posted this just in case the pump is defective. The instructions for removing the washer case still apply.

Check for the air dome hose and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.
