My direct drain connection seems to have quit working. The drainage bucket fills rather than the water exiting the drain hose.

The line may have "gunk" built up in it. I would suggest checking the drain line to make sure it is not blocked.

How to make unit drain through hose, instead of filling bucket?


Assuming you have a hose connected to the bucket for drainage, it is necessary that the end of the hose be lower than the top level of the bucket or the bucket will fill before the hose drains. I see many people who have their units on the floor and run a hose up into a sink and wonder why the bucket fills. Gravity works.....if you cannot find a lower place to drain the water then you must raise the unit up on a table or stand of some sort to get the bucket higher than the drain.

Whirlpool AD50USS Dehumidifier WILL NOT DRAIN THROUGH HOSE


I have a similar model. There are two drains, one for the hose and one directly into the bucket. The hose one is supposed to be lower, but I had to put a 3/8 inch block under the right side of the unit to get the water to favor the hose instead of the bucket. Another possibility is that the far end of the hose is higher than the near end. If you can't lower it, you can put the whole dehumidifier up on blocks. One other thing to check is that the hose has a rubber washer in it where it connects to the unit. Use a tissue to see if this connection is dry. If it leaks, it will just drip into the bucket.
Good luck!

I love this dehumidifier, but can not figure out how to connect a hose to the bucket so that it continually drains, as opposed to the bucket filling up. Where is the connection for the hose on this unit?


Terry, the hose connection should be on the rear of the uni, covered by a screw off cap. The hose can be not longer than 48" and should slope down and straight to the floor drain. As, proper drainage relies entirely on gravity.

Do I have to do something, not mentioned in the manual to get my unit to drain out the hose connection. I know people are stupid, so yes I did open the connection and attached my hose. It has a bit of...


This is usually cased by either a clogged drain hose ro the hose connection and tubing on the unit is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted into the bucket.

First, turn the unit OFF & unplug it.
To unclog the connection and it's interior tubing. Disconnect the hose and using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie appropriately sized Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip into the hose connection and the tubing. Slowly push it in unitl you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work is past this bend, until the Zip Tip bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull it out while rotation (twisting) it. This should breakup any clogs. As you reach the tip of the inserted Zip Tie, be prepared as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose to the connection, plug the unit back in, turn it On and lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. Monitor the hose periodically for water flow.

Be sure the hose slopes down and away from the unit and is not longer than 5 feet. As drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

NOTE: You may substitute something similar to a plastic Zip Tie. But, no wire coat hangers.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I want to add a drainage tube to the unit so I don't have to keep emptying the collection container. How do you de-activiate the "full bucket " switch? I have the Kenmore Model #...


Roren, once the hose is properly installed, it's not necessary to deactivate the bucket switch. Unless, the tubing inside the hose connection is clogged, the water should drain through the hose. However, the hose should not be longer than 5 feet and should drain down and away from the unit. As the drainage relies entirely on gravity.

If you have already tried this and was unsuccessful, the hose connection drain is clogged. You can use an 18" plastic Zip Tie, inserted carefully into the drain hole connection to loosen the clog and remove it. But, you'll have to gingerly work it past a bend in the tunbe, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then while pulling it back out twist the Zip Tie to dislodge the clog. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also, check the hose for clogs before connecting to the unit.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Water fills in the bucket and will not drain


I've got the same problem. It drained through the hose for 6 months, but recently stopped and now fills the bucket. I connected a new hose, but that didn't help. I found some debris inside the dehumidifier (where you connect a hose to), but removing that didn't help. I may try taking the unit apart to see if somehow a cricket or some sludge got built up inside.
I'll post my findings. Hopefully it won't be too complex or nasty!!

Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

Has anyone figured out how to get a 25-pint Frigidaire dehumidifier (model FDD25S1) to put water out the drain hose for continuous draining instead of into the bucket? It appears to be impossible to connect the hose in a way to avoid water leaking into the bucket.

Problem with draining water through hose


I bought one of the FDL70S1 Frigidaire dehumidifiers today for my shop, and found that the $5 hose I bought to drain it through the floor wouldn't tighten down completely, allowing the hose to twist and wobble, a sure indication that it was not water tight. Simply adding a second washer, as described in another answer here, allowed me to tighten the hose sufficiently to produce a tight fit with no play between the hose and the dehumidifier. It hasn't leaked. I know it is a threads-per-inch issue, and I am stumped as to why Frigidaire would supply these units with a different thread pitch than the standard GHT (garden hose thread) 3/4" - 11.5 tpi. The threads on the unit appear to be 3/4 NPS - 14 tpi. Go figure!
