I don't have the exact dehumidifier as yours, but on mine it's as simple as removing the hose, then the water fills the reservoir. Does it look like yours will do the same? If so, the hose fitting is also a sensor that will shut the unit off when it is full to avoid leaking onto the floor.

Tip

Dehumidifier VS. Air conditioner


A dehumidifier is basically the same thing as an air conditioner but both coils (condenser and evaporator) are in the same unit meaning a dehumidifier exhaust warm air in the same room it is in. running a dehumidifier would make an air conditioner run more because of the warm exhaust, when you run an air conditioner it acts like a dehumidifier and dries the air. As far as saving energy it all depends on the size of the AC and dehumidifier and the size of the room. If you want warm dry air, use a dehumidifier; if you want cool dry air run the AC but not both.
How do all these parts fit together to pull moisture from the air? It's fairly simple, but very effective:
  1. A fan collects air from the surrounding area and pulls it into the dehumidifier.
  2. As the air passes through, it comes into contact with the dehumidifier's cooled coils. These coils use condensation to pull moisture from the air. The collected moisture remains on the coils and drips into the dehumidifier's reservoir.
  3. The dehumidifier reheats the air and exhausts it back into the room.
A dehumidifier usually has a removable plastic bucket for are reservoir; most buckets also have a place where you can hook up a hose so the collected water can drain straight into a floor drain or pump. This frees you from having to remember to dump out the water. But don't worry too much about the reservoir overflowing -- most dehumidifiers also have an automatic shut-off. If you're using a dehumidifier in extremely moist conditions,however, or if you need to keep your dehumidifier on all the time, you should look into a unit with a built-in condensate pump, which regularly pumps water out of the unit's reservoir rather than simply relying on gravity to empty it as a hose does.

How to set the dehumidityfier to drain through a hose than the bucket


As you're facing the rear of the unit, you will see a drain hose connection with a drain cap in place, don near floor level. Using a garden hose, no longer than 5 feet, remove the drain cap and save for future uses. Connect the garden hose section to the drain hose connection. Roll the dehumidifier to within 5 feet of a floor drain and place the hose at the inner edge of the floor drain. Be use the hose is sloped down and without bends or kinks. Plug the dehumidifier in, turn it ON and set the humidity extraction level at 35 - 40%. Monitor the hose to make sure its draining after 15 minutes of operation.

Keep in mind, the drain hose relies entirely on gravity to drain. It will not drain, if the hose is not sloped it's entire length down from the unit.

To assist you further, I have included a link to your Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.danby.com/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DDR586R%20EFOM.pdf

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I do not have the adaptor for my maytag dehumidifier model #M7DH45B2A to attach the garden hose for continuous drainage. Where can I get one, or could you give me the specifications so I can go to the...


The drain hose connecter, which accepts a garden hose type coupling is an intricate part of the unit. It is not removable. If yours broke OFF, that's a different story. However, that Part # 5214A20027A Drain Hose Connect is no longer available. As are many other parts for Maytag Dehumidifiers, that were manufactured by the now defunct, Fedders.

Unfortunately, I do think you'll be able to run out to the local hardware store and get parts to fabricate one. As the lion's share of the part is internal. http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/partinfo.php?partsID=282294&modelsID=116727&typeName=dehumidifier

I'm sorry I don't better news for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Why does my bucket fill when I have connected a continuous feed hose for discharge? The hose does not seem to empty the humidifier.


Check to make sure the drain hole connection on the Dehumidifer's reservoir, that you have the hose hooked to, isn't plugged.

Also, you might want to see if the hose connection on the reservoir, still has the "knock out plug" still in place. Look at the hose connection on the reservoir, and if you can't see through it, or put a screwdriver through it, you need to punch it out the middle with a screwdriver. Open up the hole as much as you can so it will drain into and through your hose.

Check your hose also, as it might be plugged, disconnect it and blow through one end to make sure the water can flow through it.

Those are the only three things that could be preventing it from draining out the reservoir, through the hose connection, and through the hose to your drain.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Need manual with exploded diagram


If your model has a condensate (water) reservoir, there should either be a threaded hose fitting located at the bottom of the reservoir that will accept a standard garden hose, once you punch out the plug inside the threaded coupler.

If you do not have a threaded hose coupler on your unit's reservoir, remove the reservoir and look inside the area above it and there should be a small hose fitting that you can attach a standard garden hose to, to allow for constant draining without having to use and empty the condensate reservoir daily, etc.

If you don't have either of these items, you'll need to purchase a new condensate reservoir with a hose drain attachment to allow use of an auxillary drain hose. You'll need to contact Maytag customer service for the correct parts and assistance.

Haier 30 pint dehumidifier continuous drain problem.


Many just attach the hose at the reservoir; from your description, Haier apparently has a separate location. Check that the point that the hose attaches has an opening (many don't, they expect you to drill it). It should then drain through gravity. Check to make sure that no part of the drain hose is higher than the bottom of the reservoir, otherwise it can't drain. It won't siphon because each time the the tank empties, the suction is broken and the siphoning can't continue.

Connected Drain Hose - Is not draining, what gives?


Usually all you have to do is to remove any cap on the outlet fitting, attach the hose, & make sure it has a downhill run to the drain or well. Visual inspection should be enough to guarantee no obstructions exist.
