You should have a drain hose connector. this connecter is inserted into the back of the dehumidifier. your hose can then be connected to the connecter. if you are also miising your connecter,sears or any store similiar will have one

I have installed a hose for draining but the water still fills the bucket and shuts off when it's full. I have a Whirpool Gold Serial# NQE1RSA O61 or 061 I see no model number anywhere


Janice, the problem may be with the drain hose being to long (shouldn't exceed 48") or it and the hose connection on the unit is clogged.The hose is easy to check, by disconnecting it and either looking thru it or blowing thru it.

To solve the clogged hose connector and interior drain tubing, do the following:

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 connection & interior 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 to 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. It may take 5 to 10 minutes for water to start flowing.

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.

I hope this helped you, Janice and thanks for choosing FixYa.

There is a hose hooked up so we don't have to empty the bucket all the time and it has stopped going through the hose - not sure why?


The reason it's stopped going thru the hose, is that either the hose is stopped up or the hose connection and interior tubing is clogged. When this occurs, water is diverted into the bucket.

The hose is easy to check for a clog. Remove the 5' section and either blow thru it or look thru it .

To clear a clog in the hose connection and/or interior tubing turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then do the following

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection hole . 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 to the floor drain.

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

MDL11-40AEN3. When connecting hose to unit for continuous drain, will not drain through hose (fills up bucket and shuts off). I've called Midea and they told me to tilt unit. That doesn't help


Dennis, the problem you're having is caused by either the drain hose being clogged or the drain hose connection and tubing being clogged. When this occurs, water is diverted to the bucket.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

Remove the hose and check it for for clogs. You can do this visually or by blowing thru it. If you find nothing there, it's the connection and/or interior tubing that is clogged.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the connection hole & 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. Be sure the drain hose is not kinked and is sloped down from the unit. In addition, the hose length on most dehumidifiers should not exceed 48".

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

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 have a hose hooked up in the back to continually drain water but it isn't working. I have to keep emptying the water. How do I get it to work? And if I take out the plug water leaks everywhere.


The problem you're facing is either a clog in the drain hose or a clog in the hose connector's tubing.

The drain hose is an easy one to insect and clean, if necessary. For the hose connector tubing, you need to do the following.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or 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 drain 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 it for drainage thru the hose.

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 helped you solve the problem. P;ease let me know. Thanks.

Continuous drain hose stopped working...worked fine until a couple of weeks ago


Paul, this is usually caused by 2 things: The attached hose is clogged or the hose drain connection and tubing are clogged. Before attempting any service work on the unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit:

The first one is easy to solve, by removing the hose, looking thru it or blowing thru it.

The second requires a little more work:

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or 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. Reinstall the bucket, 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 it for any leakage.

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 helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a new Frigadaire dehumidifier , 50 pint, which I have connected to a garden hose to be emptied into a drain in our basement. So far, after, two weeks, it fills up with water and we have to...


I'm really surprised that Frigidaire didn't know what the problem was. The drain tubing at the hose connection is clogged or the hose itself is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the bucket.

First, turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

The hose clog is easy to solve. Simply remove the hose and either look thru it for light at the other end or blow through it. Make sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet.

To clear a clog in the drain hose connector, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is appropriately sized to fit in the hose connector tubing.

Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you each the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Completing the above, should solve the problem. Then call Frigidaire and tell them how to solve the problem.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The water/mositure won't discharge through the hose into the drain; instead, it collects in the bucket.


Hi! Either the hose is clogged or the hose connection on the unit or the interior tubing to the hose connection is clogged. OR the hose is over 5 feet long. OR the hose is not sloped downward from the unit. The unit depends on gravity to drain thru a hose.

To clear a clog in the hose connection and/or the interior tubing:

Use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is appropriately sized to fit the inside of hose connect and tubing (NO wire coat hangers though). Carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hole and continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must, gingerly work it past the bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Slowly pull it back out while rotating (twisting it). This will help dislodge any clogs. When you start to reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

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

What setting do you have to have it on for the water to come out of hose only


The water collection bucket may have a hose tap in it. But, in your case the hose drain connection is on the side of the unit. You have to remove the cover of the hose connection, before you can connect the garden hose. Here's where it gets a little tricky, because the Owners Manual says to leave the bucket in place. However, the Troubleshooting Guide says to remove the bucket, if water is not draining thru the hose. Which to me, makes sense, because the unit can't recognize that the hose is connected, if the bucket is still installed, because it has a safety switch.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, here is a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.
