Dehumidifier water will not drain to hose

    Can't get the hose connected securely so it behaves as if the bucket is full. Sloppy fittings, I guess.

As for the drain most have a plastic pan and this is sometimes the type that has to be removed and dumped or a hose has to be attached and the hole it attaches to has to be cut out for self draining.
If the threads are fouled up all I can suggest is a lot of Teflon tape or pipe dope or cut out and replace the fitting with something that will correct the problem.

If this helps please rate me as high as you can and thank ytouu for using fixya.

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.

I raised mine up on a platform about 6 inches, and now mine works fine. Don't know why this is necessary, but atleast it works now.

SOURCE: Water from LG 30 pt dehumidifier drains into

(assumming you are not an idiot, like the other solver suggested) you may very well have it connected to the right spot, many of these units, are not balanced well, (or are balnaced all to well, depending on how you look at it) The imbalance, basically makes the water drip to the front, instead of the back. Try to put something under just the front of the machine, to tilt it back, ever so slightly. Good luck

SOURCE: DeLonghi dehumidifier hose by drain tray leaking

I think that I am having the same problem, but I'm not sure that this tube needs to be plugging into anything. However, my humidifier seems to be draining out of this tube rather than from the tray into the bucket.

Dehumidifier manual


Good morning friend, thanks for your post!

Based off what you're explaining it sounds like your Frigidaire dehumidifier might not be leveled. Any time your dehumidifier is not properly leveled water will not drain out the rear but instead into the bucket. I would recommend checking to assure your appliance is leveled. If your dehumidifier is leveled detach the hose to make sure nothing is blocking the water for exiting into the hose. If those steps are unsuccessful and you continue to get water into the bucket please respond back and I can research more information for you. Best of luck. -Matt

Why is my Kenmore Energy Star 50 pint model 251-50501012 dehumidifier leaking water after I disconnected the drain hose


If you reconnect the drain hose, make sure that it lays flat from the dehumidifier and into the sump pump hole. I did that and it solved my problem of water leaking onto the floor.

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.

Why doesn't water drain into the hose?


My dehumidifier was dumping condensate onto the floor instead of through the hose to the floor drain. The solution turned out to be making sure the unit was level. No worries since then.

Hose connected but not draining and bucket filling


I am also an air conditioning tech, with same problem and same soleus dehumidifier problem. you must remove the plug and install the drain line hose adapter. Hose must lay flat and have no "hills" for water to drain. With this done pull your drain pan out and set aside. look under right side facing the dehumidifier and you will see a small spout. Has a lip like a little tea pot. Plug that spout. I used a foam ear plug used in work shops. Now give the front of dehumidifier a slight rise on front wheels about the thickness of a pies of cardboard 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch. Now put drain pan back in an start up. The problem is the drain pan was made with very little differance in pitch between the the hose drain and the bucket drain. Remember to check your drain hose periodically and the air filter also. Good luck

Our new Santa-Fe Classic dehumidifier is leaking water from the bottom of the unit. It's also sending a small amount of water correctly through the tube for dispersal. We've only had it for two...


The classic model drains thru the clear hose using gravity. The drip pan in that unit is about 1/2 way up in the cabinet. Make sure the drain hose exits the unit and runs flat or downhill. If the drain hose is coiled vertically or run up hill causing water to trap within the hose it can cause water to back up in the dehumidifier drip pan and overflow causing your problem. If your drain is higher than the base of the dehumidifier, you can raise the dehumidifier or you can purchase a condensate pump kit that will allow the drain water to be pumped up to 15 feet above the dehumidifier.

The drain hose may have become disconnected from the drip pan as well. To check, turn off the humidistat to stop the dehumidifier from running. Next disconnect the cord from the power supply. Remove the six screws holding the cabinet side (with the label) from the cabinet and remove the cabinet side. The drain hose connects to a nipple on the bottom of the drip pan.

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.

I connected a hose to my dehumidifier to drain the water. The water is still going in the dehumidifiers tank. What else do I need to do?


Check the hose connection on the dehumidifier, as well as the hose for clogs. That is what usually happens when a hose is connected and it doesn't drain properly.

Also, the hose should be no more than 5 feet long and MUST slope downward to drain properly. As, the drain relies entirely on gravity. There is no pump.

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