Possibly there is a knock-out plug that has to be removed for the water to flow into and out of hose

Hose attachment to drain water to sump pump not working. Is there some plug of some type that has to be removed to allow water to enter hose? Can not find manual.


If you hooked up the hose correctly, you had to remove the drain cap.

If the hose is longer than 5 feet, that's part of the problem. The hose must slope down and straight to a floor drain. It relies on gravity to drain.

Although you just purchased it, the hose connector and inner tubing may be clogged. This is another reason water is diverted to the bucket. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connector and tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose for water flow. It may take 5 to 10 minutes for water to appear.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solves the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Although I have attached a hose for continuous drainage, the unit still empties into the bucket. Any thoughts about what is going on?


What is going on is that either the hose is to long (should not be more than 48" long) or it's clogged or the hose connection and it's tubing is clogged. When any of the aforementioned occurs, water is diverted to the bucket.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.
Disconnect the hose and check it for a clog and it's length. If none is found, the clog is in the hose connector on the unit or in it's tubing. To clear the clog, do the following:

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the connector & tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow.Reconnect the hose making sure it slopes down and away from the unit, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose for water flow. Keep in mind, drainage relies entirely on gravity. The water will not drain up.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers

Check the float valve in the top of the bucket. It may be stuck in the UP position. If that the case, jiggle the float valve arm to get it to return to the DOWN position. That should solve the problem.

Trying to use the hose rather than emptying the bucket but water continues to drip onto bucket even tho connection to hose appears snug


This may not help because I'm not sure of what you have, but most dehumids when using a hose hook to a fitting on the tank. If that's what you have, before you hook the hose you have to either punch a knockout in the center of the hookup on the tank or cut it out. Hope this helps.

Is it possible to attach a hose to drain the water continuously without my having to empty the bucket every day? If so where and how do I do that? Thank you.


The easiest way is to put a hole in the bucket( by using a a hole saw) and attach a pvc fitting(male adapter with a rubber washer and nut) and hook a hose or pvc pipe that will drain the unit of its water. Good Luck

How do you hook it up to a floor drain?


With most portable dehumidifiers use a bucket to catch the condensate. Then the bucket is full the dehumidifier stops, then you need to empty it and replace the bucket to get the dehumidifier to start working again.

To make this unit run continually, the bucket can be modified so a garden hose can be attached and the hose can be feed into a floor drain. To do this look at the bottom of the bucket, there should be a hose connector where you can attach a standard garden hose. You will need to drill out the center of the hose connector with a 1/4" drill bit. Then you can attach the hose to the bucket and the other end into the floor drain.

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

Connection for continuous discharge


There unit should have come with a small plastic tube. One end should have a thread connecion for hose hook-up. There should be an opening on the back of the unit that you push the tube through to connect with a little elbow tube inside the unit. You should be able to see the elbow connector from the front of the unit by removing the water bucket. Just push the plastic tube in from the back until it fits snuggly over or into the elbow tube and replace the water bucket. Run the connected hose to your sump pump.

When hose is attached, bucket fills up


yes: hose allowed the bucket to be bypassed yes: bucket was there only for the switch to power can you pass a finger through the hole where the hose connected? probably not, right? most of these buckets have a knockout area inside the hose connection. Try prying it out or even drilling it out if required. remember that once you remove hose, you must purchase a plug hose end connector to continue bucket only useage.
