My DeLonghi dehumidifier is collecting water but not into the bucket. Rather it leaks it all on the floor. I have cleaned the filter and even the coils to no avail. Please help.

I don't know if the problem in mine si due to clogging. Rather a clear tube behind the bucket is just releasing the water. I don't know where it's supposed to be connected. Any ideas?

The drain tube that drains the water into the bucket is clogged and needs to be cleared.

To do this, you will need at least an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar. (But, NO wire coat hangers) that will fit into the drain tube or hole. Carefully work the Zip Tie into the hole or tube and gently push it forward. You will reach a bend in the tubing, but you will have to gingerly work past this bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will help breakup the clog. Once you start reaching the end of the inserted Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above procedure should solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Have a dehumidifier, Delonghi DE500P. Unit operates but no water collecting in bucket.Level set to 35%. Can freon be added to recharge?


the short answer is yes , but id caution you on the need too first?

first check the basics:
bucket full lite not on (blinking)
filters clean ?
both fan and compressor inside running (sometimes the fan runs but the compressor does not?) listen carefull for them both?
if your unit needs recharged odds are it's not financial feasible to do so , first you have to fix cause of gas leaking out ? what ever that is ? then you need to add service ports and finally you need a gas charge , this would or could cost hundreds of dollars , a entire new unit is less 200 bucks unless you do all this work your self , but id tend to think if you had all the tools and knowledge to do that youd not of asked here in the first place

Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier is leaking -- water isn't going into the tray, but seems to be leaking out into the floor.


Mine is doing the same thing. The bucket is dry and the floor is flooded, so it is not an inability to condense, and it is not that the bucket has overflowed, and the bucket does not have a leak. It had been working great and then this suddenly started happening, it's as if the water is not flowing along the proper route and instead is gathering behind the bucket.

Does not collect water in bucket but runs all the time


Does it have a filter?
http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/953

also:

"
It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises."

De500p dehumidifier pump stopped working, help!!!


I only got as far as disconnecting the filter between the small water bucket and the pump. I was able to get the pump working again after I cleaned the water bucket and filter by flushing them repeatedly with fresh water. The lines after the pump contained cloudy water, but I figured since the pump was able to push it out past the pump already, it shouldn't cause problems this far down. It saved a lot of time and hard work not having to disconnet the rest of the tubing or take the water bucket off. I also realized if I disconnet the first water collection tubing from just under the front panel and point the open end down, all the water in the bucket flows out. This part is so easy to get to. Just pull out the big collection tank and it's right there on the left toward the back. I can do this every week! Maybe then nothing will sit long enough in the small water bucket to turn into any kind of filter-clogging material.
