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.

Water is leaking out of the bottom


I get this complaint once in a while , most times it boils down to a unit that's being used on a Non level surface , most units are designed to gravity drain , if its not level , then Gravity is pulling wrong direction on unit so it drips on floor ;not in bucket

drips also can come from a frozen evap coil , this is a sure sign of blocked air flow and possible gas charge over heat (leak) unplug unit for 48 hrs to see if water continues to drain out , if so yep it's iced up

My danby dehumidifier is suddenly leaking from the bottom .. I have a hose that runs down my drain in the basement .. It was all working great until a month ago .. now there is water leaking from...


Turn the unit OFF and unplug it. Disconnect the hose from the outlet on the unit. Using a plastic 18" Zip Tie, that will fit easily into the drain outlet, carefully insert the Zip Tie and insert it as far as you can. You will reach a bend in the tubing, so gingerly work it past that bend. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it will allow, start pulling it slowly back out, while rotating it. This will dislodge any clogs, so be ready for water to follow. It also would be wise, to clean out the tube or hole that drains into the bucket, as it may also have a clog in it.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem, Joanne.

Help! Water keeps filling the tank instead of going out the hose


Had the same problem. Make sure you tighten the house a little with pliers. Also, make sure the dehumidifier is up a lot higher than where you're draining it into. Mine drains into a utility sink. But I have the dehumidifier propped up onto a dresser. I cut a small piece of hose to run into the sink. Seems to be working now.

It will take 5 min or so to establish a water flow, so be patient after you hook everything up. Good luck.

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

Water tank still gets full when connected to floor drain


Check the fitting where you connect the drain hose to. It may have a plastic seal that must be cleared out in order to use the hose drain. The plastic seal can be easily punched out.

Danby water tank


this part is the indicator to activate the interlock that stop your deshumidifier when water tank is full. It activate a switch on the top right of the placeholder of the tank. when the switch is relaesed it tells you either thank is not there or full and light a red signal. the center of the wheel should be back the pivot. if the pivot is broken, i don't suggest you to forced the switch activated unless you use the direct drain, or you might have water spilled over a full bucket! Martin!
