The water fills the bucket
Paul, there is a clog either in the hose or in the connecter tubing you have the hose connected to. Use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. NO wire cost hangers, though) that will fit into the hole at the hose connection. Carefully insert it into the hole and work in until you reach the bend of the tubing. Here's the tricky part, as you have to work it past this bend. Once you do and the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip tie, slowly pull it back out, while rotating it. This will loosen any clogs, so be prepared for water to follow.
Also. keep in mind that the hose should be no longer than 5'. As the dehumidifier relies on gravity to drain the water through the hose.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
