The continuous drain hole (where the hose is inserted) is clogged. To remove the clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. But NO wire cost hangers) that will fit into the hole.
Insert it slowly and push until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then, while rotating it, pull it out slowly. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also make sure that the drain hose, when reinserted is not crimped and the end is lower than the drain hose connection. The unit does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain water through the hose.

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

Trouble with disposing of water. I have it hitched up with hose, but humidifier insists on filling the interior bucket. Help please


For the hose to work the unit must be elevated somehow so that the bucket will not fill. Or somehow the unit must be higher than the end of the hose. If you put the hose down an open floor drain that should suffice.

Direct drain


2 possibilities: #1The port that you plugged the hose onto need to be drilled so the water can come out and enter the hose. #2 The hose cannot be higher at ANY point than the bucket. Physics rules apply and the water will always fill the lowest point. Keep the hose low or raise the dehumidifier up.

Danby Dehumidifier DDR7009REE leaking water, bucket not full


Hi there,
The unit may need cleaning. You can contact Danby customer service (1-800-263-2629) to get in contact with a technician.
There may be something clogging the passage to the bucket and the water is finding the path of least resistance.
As well, it is important to remember to clean the filter once a month.

How do I switch from continuous drain to draining into the bucket? I have a Danby Pro dehumidifier. Thanks Tyler


Disconnect the hose and reattach the hose connection drain cap, that was removed when the hose was attached. The water will then be diverted into the water collection bucket

Hope this helped you, Tyler and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Danby ddr7009ree - continuous drain won't work


I have the same Danby unit and the same problem. When you take out the water bucket look inside and find the two holes where the water drips into the bucket. These holes are approximately 5/16" and 3/8" diameter. These holes need to be plugged. Your local hardware store has an assortment of specialized parts boxes. Find the box that contains "corks" of various sizes. They sell for about 20¢ apiece. I bought 5 within that size catagory and two of them worked! Problem solved.

Danby continuous water flow will not work on a dehumidifier it still fills the bucket


Please try the following:
1) Remove the bucket.
2) You will notice a round outlet/spout where the water drips from into the bucket.
3) Remove the plug from the backside of the unit (you will now see a hole to the bucket area).
4) Feed a hose through the hole from the back and attach the end of the hose to the round outlet/spout.
5) Place the other end of the hose on a floor drain outlet.
6) Put the bucket back into the unit.

When the unit is turned on, the water will now flow through the hose instead (into the floor drain). When you want to use the bucket again to capture the water, you will need to remove the hose.

I hope that helps.
