SOURCE: DeLonghi dehumidifier hose by drain tray leaking

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.

Dehumidifier manual


Good morning friend, thanks for your post!

Based off what you're explaining it sounds like your Frigidaire dehumidifier might not be leveled. Any time your dehumidifier is not properly leveled water will not drain out the rear but instead into the bucket. I would recommend checking to assure your appliance is leveled. If your dehumidifier is leveled detach the hose to make sure nothing is blocking the water for exiting into the hose. If those steps are unsuccessful and you continue to get water into the bucket please respond back and I can research more information for you. Best of luck. -Matt

Pump not working


If you've checked power to the pump and it isn't working, it needs replacing, unless it's blocked with slimy deposits. Try a vacuum cleaner on the drain hose outlet

Our new Santa-Fe Classic dehumidifier is leaking water from the bottom of the unit. It's also sending a small amount of water correctly through the tube for dispersal. We've only had it for two...


The classic model drains thru the clear hose using gravity. The drip pan in that unit is about 1/2 way up in the cabinet. Make sure the drain hose exits the unit and runs flat or downhill. If the drain hose is coiled vertically or run up hill causing water to trap within the hose it can cause water to back up in the dehumidifier drip pan and overflow causing your problem. If your drain is higher than the base of the dehumidifier, you can raise the dehumidifier or you can purchase a condensate pump kit that will allow the drain water to be pumped up to 15 feet above the dehumidifier.

The drain hose may have become disconnected from the drip pan as well. To check, turn off the humidistat to stop the dehumidifier from running. Next disconnect the cord from the power supply. Remove the six screws holding the cabinet side (with the label) from the cabinet and remove the cabinet side. The drain hose connects to a nipple on the bottom of the drip pan.

Contact Therma-Stor service for further inquiries at 1-800-533-7533 - they are located in the USA and are very helpful.

Bought a Delonghi dd50pc dehumifier last week for my basement and I have the hose going uphill and out a window but the pump always shuts off after 3-4 minutes, filling the tank instead. Now when I lay...


You really answered your own question. The pump in the dehumidifier only has so much water lift capacity. By trying to run it up and out, you have exceeded the maximum lift capacity. Using a floor drain or even a bathtub drain in the basement will probably work, as long as the hose is not to long.*
However, if you can use a floor drain, there's no need to use the pump function. You can use the continuous drain on the back of the unit. using the drain hose provided for that application.

*The 13 ft lift capacity noted in the Owner's Manual includes whatever length of hose you're using to get to the window. As there is some friction loss involved. But, they fail to point that out.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Is it possible to buy a tube that will allow me to drain my dehumidifier (Whirlpool Accudry AD25BBL6) into my ejector pump that I use with my air conditioning unit?


A standard Garden Hose will work. However, the hose can not be any longer than 5 feet and must always slope downward. As, there is no pump in the dehumidifier. It relies entirely on gravity to drain thru a hose. So, unless your condensation pump is within 5 feet of the dehumidifier, it won't work.

Hope this helped you. Please let e know.

Edwin, according to the Owner's Manual, when this happens the drain hose is not connected properly. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, then disconnect the hose and reconnect it. Plug the unit back in, Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and press the pump button. If the hose is connected properly, the pump should tunr on and pump the water out.

To help you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for a Delonghi model like yours. Once you go to that page, click on the Acrobat Reader Icon and download the Owner's Manual. You may print it is you like.
