Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier
SOURCE: Connecting a drain hose
Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.

Patti, the problem is not the drain hose (unless it's clogged or exceeds 48" in length). The internal drain tubing to the hose connection is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the water collection bucket. To unclog the tubing do the following:
Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection hole 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 it for water flow. It may take 10 to 15 minutes for the water to start flowing, so be patient.
I hop the helps you, Patti and thanks for choosing FixYa.
