Here is Danby's official response to a similar question on their FAQ page for Dehumidifiers:
Q) When the dehumidifier is operating, is it normal for the expelled air to be quite warm? We find that the dehumidifier is warming up the room noticeably (a finished basement).
A) The warm air that is being expelled from your dehumidifier is normal. When the unit is dehumidifying the compressor is working which causes the compressor to become quite hot. In order to avoid having the compressor overheat, air is drawn by the compressor at a rapid rate and the heat is then transferred to the air which must be expelled from the unit. The warm air will stop shortly after the unit has reached the desired humidity. This warm air should not change your room temperature by more than a degree or two.

I think that I am having the same problem, but I'm not sure that this tube needs to be plugging into anything. However, my humidifier seems to be draining out of this tube rather than from the tray into the bucket.

SOURCE: My Danby dehumidifier leaks out
The drain tube or hole that drains into the bucket is probably clogged.
Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look in the cavity where the bucket was removed for a drain tube or drain hole. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) , that's appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Carefully feed the ZIP Tie into the hole or tube and thread it as far as you can. At some point the drain will curve, but you have to carefully get past this point. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. Once you have it half way out, be prepared for water to follow. This method should solve the problem.
