Trying to use the hose
This may not help because I'm not sure of what you have, but most dehumids when using a hose hook to a fitting on the tank. If that's what you have, before you hook the hose you have to either punch a knockout in the center of the hookup on the tank or cut it out. Hope this helps.
How does it work what do I do to operate it
Read the instruction manual and then after you understand that turn it on and set it accordingly. 35% for the humiodity might be a good starting pint.
It has a refrigeration system that blows room air across the evaporator coil then across the condenser coil. The evaporate coil gets cold causing moisture to condense and eventually drip into a collection device.
Dehumidifier keeps running and no water collects in the bucket
Sounds like a refrigeration problem, I am assuming the fan operates. Unplug it and let it set for about an hour. Plug it in and see if the compressor starts. If it does and you do not get water It is either low on gas or the compressor has failed. If the compressor does not start but hums it would need a new capacitor. If nothing the thermal overload has probably failed. This should get you started. Good Luck. If it is to involved they are not that expensive to replace.
