Question about Whirlpool AD50USS Dehumidifier
HAVE CONNECTED GARDEN HOSE TO DRAIN BUCKET BUT DOES NOT DRAIN OUT. BUCKET FILLS AND DEHUMIDIFIER SHUTS OFF.
I have a similar model. There are two drains, one for the hose and one directly into the bucket. The hose one is supposed to be lower, but I had to put a 3/8 inch block under the right side of the unit to get the water to favor the hose instead of the bucket. Another possibility is that the far end of the hose is higher than the near end. If you can't lower it, you can put the whole dehumidifier up on blocks. One other thing to check is that the hose has a rubber washer in it where it connects to the unit. Use a tissue to see if this connection is dry. If it leaks, it will just drip into the bucket.

I had the same problem....raised the unit 3 feet off floor, the drain hose is 4feet long... But the secret to getting unit to drain into hose if unit is set to Continous is...... TILT the unit back about 5 degrees with a half inch piece of wood under front wheels and She will drain into hose instead of bucket.... IF this don't work , I will eat the [email protected]

I had a sililiar problem. I think I tightened tthe hose after putting a new rubber gasket on hose fitting, Also checked angle of hose.

safety switch is turning off the dehumidifier....you need to drain out the bucket more often....or put the drain hose into an actual drain....ive seen some people run a small plastic hose from the dehumidifier to the sump pump hole in their basement.
