I would check a couple of things. It is probably one of the fittings for the water / ice maker leaking either because a hose needs tightened or one of the plastic 90 degree elbows cracked. I would turn off the supply valve and see if it stops.
If you have no by-pass, or perhaps a valve in the system is faulty, simply but a 1/2"NPT fitting or nipple with Male threads both ends, or if necessary I use a 1/2"x 1/2" x 90 degree elbow and simply take lines off tank and join them together at the nipple or fitting you choose. That's a by-pass believe it or not. Or a simple piece of clear braided hose, with a barbed fitting clamped on each end with 1/2" NPT Male, then you can bend it around to where you need it rather than your lines.
Fire Hazard? How can a rubber hose that drains water, be a fire hazard? This inspector is jerking you around. Since there are no copper fitting that will fit the connector, use a flexible stainless steel water water supply hose, that's normally used on an automatic washer. You'll wind up with 2 female ends, but that won't matter. Be sure there is a rubber washer in the end you connect to the unit's hose connection and only tighten it enough that it won't leak. If you over tighten it, it will crack or brake the plastic male connector.
Just for my own information, why is a building inspector necessary for the installation and approval of a portable dehumidifier? You can respond bu clicking on the Comment link. Thanks
For water supply, use a braided stainless steel flexible dishwasher supply hose with 3/8 compression ends on each side and a 3/8 male NPT x 3/8 compression elbow adapter. There is a tee with 3/8 female compression x 3/8 male compression x 3/8 male compression which can be used between the hot water shut off valve and the supply tube to the kitchen sink faucet to get your hot water with no significant plumbing work. Make sure the drain hose does not run straignt down back to the dishwasher. (put a loop up to make sure no dirty water tries to go back to the dishwasher.) If installing drain to a disposer drain port, make sure the knock out plug has been removed. It's also easiest if the floor under the dishwasher is at the same hight as the rest of the floor in the kitchen. Make sure wire nut connections are tight for electrical.
Ironically, I just had to go through this ordeal myself. You would think they would include all the parts necessary to install these appliances, but they don't.
The fitting is a 90 degree elbow with 3/4 inch hose fitting to 3/8 inch compression fitting. The part number is W10273460. You can call Whirlpool at 1-800-442-9991, or you can purchase online at any of the following websites:
You can also go to your nearest hardware store plumbing section and purchase a universal dishwasher kit. The newer kits have the elbow included. If you aren't sure, make sure you ask a sales attendant. A universal kit costs about $15. The cost for the part listed above averages about $10.
The ice maker hookups are typically located at the bottom of the reverse side of the ref. You'll want to have enough slack in your supply line so you can roll the machine forward to clean, and service the machine while still leaving the water supply attached. So if you leave enough extra tubing on your supply line, you'll be ready for where ever it's located on the unit.
If you don't have water to the ref's location, you can purchase a complete icemaker hookup kit with a saddle self-tapping valve, copper or plastic supply line and the necessary fittings. This is typically tapped in to the cold water supply under the sink or on a cold water supply line under the house. If you run it thru cabinets or flooring, I recommend using the copper supply line.

They make pipe benders for you application. They are quite inexpensive. If you want to do it your self you can. Remember the total number of degrees you want is 90. Each cut is half the angle. Example 45+45=90. 30+30+30=90. and so forth.
I don't know your application but they sell larger radias 90 degree rigid conduit elbows at Home Depot or Lowes.
use teflon tape on the elbow if you did the back it off put some more on it and stop when its snugged facing the right direction now ive torqued them things pretty tight my self they don't strip that easy
