I just found the owners manual online, and it says to remove the plug from the back and insert hose, then to use the plug from the back to plug where the water runs into the tray.

SOURCE: The water won't run continuously
Some dehumidifiers don't require that the bucket be in place, when a drain hose is attached to the unit. I'm not sure that's the case with yours, because I'm unfamiliar with the Westpointe brand. You should also check the drain connection that the hose is connected to. It may be clogged, which forces the water into the bucket instead of draining through the hose. If you have something flexible like a long plastic Zip Tie, that can easily be run into the hose connection and slowly pulled back out, while rotating it should loosen any clogs. Be prepared for water to follow. Do not use a wire coat hanger to do this and be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting it.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

Testimonial: "That worked.....unclogging the hose. Thanks!"
I could not find the user manual for your particular model but the manual for the MDF1-30AE model indicates that the P2 code is when the bucket is full or not in the right position.
If you have already emptied the bucket and the error remains I would recommend checking around where the bucket goes as there should be a switch that gets pressed by the bucket when it is in the proper position.
My guess would be that when you are putting the bucket in it is not properly hitting this switch.
