Mine had the same problem. Make sure the unit is tilted towards the side with the hose attached (hose side low)

Dehumidifier is not draining out of the hose.


The hose is most likely clogged. Try blowing into the end of the tube to loosen up the dirt in the water tank. You can use compressed air if you have it but plan on water spilling out of the back to be safe.

Why does water leak onto the floor instead of draining into the tank?


The hose connector should be capped or a hose connected and directed to a floor drain.

Once you punch a hole in the receptacle, what type of screw cap would fit.


Most of the hose/drain connections i have seen on these have a std gardenhose fitting so you can use a std garden hose to direct the water over to drain, caps for garden hoses are easyly available from any garden supply store , but i do caution you on your thought process of hooking up a hose makes this a maintence free option, it does not as hose and filters still need constant cleaning , especally in high humidity seasons

Our dehumidifier isn't draining into tank anymore and shuts off.


Daniele, the drain hole or drain hole tubing, that that flows thru to the bucket may be clogged. To loosen & remove the clog, do the following:

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & unplug the unit.

2. Remove the bucket from the unit.

3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though).That's appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tube. Carefully insert the Zip Tie in to the drain hole or tube and continue to insert it until you reach a bend in the tube. You must gingerly work it past this 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. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Completing the above, should dislodge any clogs and water will start draining back into the tank. Be sure that you have the humidity extraction level set on 35%, after you turn the unit back ON.

My Danby dehumidifier leaks out of the bottom. Water not draining into the tank but around the tank therefore out of the bottom between the tank and the dehumidier itself


The drain tube or hole that drains into the bucket is probably clogged.

Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look in the cavity where the bucket was removed for a drain tube or drain hole. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) , that's appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Carefully feed the ZIP Tie into the hole or tube and thread it as far as you can. At some point the drain will curve, but you have to carefully get past this point. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. Once you have it half way out, be prepared for water to follow. This method should solve the problem.

I cannot find my manual for the Westpointe dehumidifier. I need to know how to fix it so that it uses a drain instead of the tank. It is set up with the hose which is directed to a drain. However, I...


Make sure the hose is clear. Did you put a hole in the attaching place for the hose? Most tanks come with no hole even though there is a hose place in the tank.

I want to change my deLonghi Dehumidifier from emptying into the container to continuous flow into the sink. I was given this from a friend, not new and dont have a manuel or the hose to change it over....


You may have a older model that has a collector tank with a protruding tube on it. If so just cut the end off the tube and slide on a piece of clear 9.5mm internal diameter PVC / Rubber tubing suitable for a fish tank air / water pump and secure it with a nylon tie wrap.

Continuous external draining for newer models with clear collection tanks.
If the appliance is to be operated for long periods of time but you are unable to empty the tank, you are recommended to use the continuous drain facility.
• Drill the inside of the drain spout using a small drill bit. This is located behind the rear grlle in the lower centre of the opening.
• Fasten the rubber hose to the spout. For models without drain hoses supplied, we suggest you purchase a rubber hose around 2m long, with an internal diameter of 9.5 mm.
• Make sure that the hose is not higher than the spout, otherwise water will remain in the tank; also check that the hose is not twisted. N.B: Keep the rubber bung. You will need it to plug the hose or close the spout if you revert to draining into the tank

Change my dehumidifier from draining by hose, to reservoir


I don't have the exact dehumidifier as yours, but on mine it's as simple as removing the hose, then the water fills the reservoir. Does it look like yours will do the same? If so, the hose fitting is also a sensor that will shut the unit off when it is full to avoid leaking onto the floor.

Won't dehumidify


Almost certainly needs recharging with refrigerant gas. This is a job for a refrigeration engineer.

Tank still fills when we are using direct drain feature


check to see that the hose isn't clogged, and that the hose runs down hill from the tank all the way to the drain. if it is higher than the tank at any point in its path it will not drain. you may put the dehumidifier on top of a small platform to aid drainage. also check that the knockout removed so there is a hole to let the water go from the tank to the hose?
