Won't drain into hose

My dehumidifier used to drain into the drain in the floor, but now it won't. The tub just keeps filling up and needs to be emptied. Before this problem, the dehumidifier leaked all over the floor. I am afraid to mess with it because it finally stopped leaking. Any suggestions?

If you can't get the manual for that on line, look for where the hose should be plugged in and plug it back in or replace it with another hose.

What is the drain size to run in copper for Zenith ZD300 dehumidifier. The inspector will not let us use a garden hose for drain as per you instructions. Fire hazard, we have to run a copper drain. What...


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

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.

Basement smells musty, fan won't stay on continuous


Barbara, are you running the unit in a continuous mode (i.e Using a hose to drain the unit)? Or is the water draining into the water collection bucket?

If you are not using a hose for continual drainage, the fan will not run constantly. It requires that, for continual operation.

Also, you may have the humidity extraction level set to high. Lower it to 35%. Also, remove and check the air intake filter, as it may need cleaning.

Dehumidifiers that are not Low Temp models have a difficult time operating in basement applications. Because the air temp at floor level is colder than at shoulder level. At temperatures between 40 & 60 degree F, regular dehumidifiers struggle to keep up. Raising it up off the flow on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water can really help.

I hope this was of assistance 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.

I have an LHD6594EBL dehumidifier that won't run and it keeps saying the bucket is full but the bucket is empty, we have a hose attached and don't use the bucket,


Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.

To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Permanent drain won't work... we attached hose but it keeps filling up and turning off indicating it its full. the hose is attached correctly but do we need to till the dehumidifier a tad backwards?


The pan itself should be sloped towards the back....ensure that the drain pan is installed correctly and that the hose or outlet fitting is not blocked . It will not do any harm to give it a little extra tilt especially if the floor isn't level

Bucket fills instead of going down the drain


You may have an unintentional trap in the line (an up and down up and down. Hose has to lay flat on floor to drain.

Need manual for fedder dehumidifer to hook up drain hose. need to know were drain hose connects.


Pull out the water collection tray. You will see a small pipe (about 1/2" diameter) in the top of the area where the tray came from. This is the "drain" that fills the tray. Connect a hose to this pipe and run the hose to a floor drain if you have one. I used a section from an old garden hose for my unit. There also may be a small opening in the back wall of the dehumidifier to route the hose more aesthetically.

Water will not go down drain tube


Sounds like you have a clog. Either try plunging the drain in the stationary tub or replace the line from the humidifer.. Just a thought

Dehumidifier emptys in the floor.


Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact.  Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine.  If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself.  It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger.  The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced.  (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)
