Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

Unit keeps cycling off and on with the "bucket full" light blinking


It appears as if the water may not be flowing through the hose.
* When you use a hose the unit must be located near the drain. If the hose is to long the water will not flow freely and cause the water to back up in the hose triggering the bucket full.
* If the unit is lower or the hose runs up hill even the slightest incline will cause the water not to flow backing up to the machine
* Hose must remain flat and in a down hill flow to the drain if you are running a longer hose than recommended. If you are have a long distance to run the hose elevate the dehumidifieer by placing it on a stand, milk crate, anything that will hold the unit. Be sure it is large enough and strong enough to support the unit to prevent it from falling. This will help siphon the water from the unit and prevent any water to back up the unit.
* If your using an old hose make sure there are no kinks and water flows freely through the hose. Any kinks or type of pinch in the hose will cause the water to back up

I hope this helps resolve your issue. This is the most common mistake when using a hose.

I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    Hooked up garden hose but tank still fills with water and shuts down when full. Hose is not plugged


    George, the hose may not be plugged, but the hose connector tubing in the unit is. To solve the problem, do the following.

    Turn the unit OFF and Unplug it.

    Disconnect the hose from the unit. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run for 60 minutes or more and monitor the drain hose. The drain hose should be no longer than 5 feet and must slope downward, with out any bends or kinks.

    NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
    .

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

    The dehumidifier drain hose does not drain when a hose is connected properly and is set at ``Continous Run``.The light on Continous setting is orange,is this normal? Raymond Benoit


    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Whirlpool-Parts/Dehumidifier-Parts/1172075/0042/106/Model-AD25BBK0/1198/0907000?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=AD25BBK0&subCompDesc=Cabinet&brandDesc=WHIRLPOOL&modelDesc=DEHUMIDIFIER&blt=11

    I would suspect the float first, IF the unit is level. But it could also be blocked with gunk and you will need to check the drain holes. I have always found a guitar string is an affective clean out of drain lines and holes.

    The orange light indicates that your bucket is full, so if it isn't then it is most likely the float above.

    Hello, I need a dehumidifier of 50pint or more that stop when the humidity level is reach and will restart when is too high. I look for a lot of brand and model and I cannot find one thanks for your...


    The fifty pint capacity might be a challenge ... think about this ... 6 + gallon tank @ 7+ pounds per gallon ... 42 pounds of water to drag from the dehumidifier to the drain? Who is going to do that?

    All dehumidifiers run at some % of humidity (via Humistat), (like you are asking about) i.e. come on at some % above the setting and go off when the setting is reached. I suggest you find one that has a standard one or two gallon tank that also features a hose connection in the tank. Run the hose from the tank to the floor drain in your basement or a drain near what ever room you are trying to dry out. When you connect the hose --- you will have to put a hole into the fitting on the tank for water to flow. The idea of the tank is that the machine will run on the setting until the tank fills up ... at which time the tank full switch will not allow the machine to run again until you dump the water (and you want to drag a 6+ gallon tank, 42+ pounds, around?) . If there is a hose attached, the tank never fills up.

    Some dehumidifiers feature a pump to which will pump the water to a near-by drain. You may be able to rig such a setup yourself using a small pump like a fish pond pump or similar.

    You may want to consider using two dehumidifiers (with or without hoses) rather than one BIG machine. I run two machines from a major USA retailer (one in each end of the basement) and they run into the near by sump and the system works fine @ my house.Thanks for your

    The water won't run continuously out, instead the tank fill up. I have it set up to run continuous but the tank keeps filling up. I have the Westpointe dehumidifier.


    Some dehumidifiers don't require that the bucket be in place, when a drain hose is attached to the unit. I'm not sure that's the case with yours, because I'm unfamiliar with the Westpointe brand. You should also check the drain connection that the hose is connected to. It may be clogged, which forces the water into the bucket instead of draining through the hose. If you have something flexible like a long plastic Zip Tie, that can easily be run into the hose connection and slowly pulled back out, while rotating it should loosen any clogs. Be prepared for water to follow. Do not use a wire coat hanger to do this and be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting it.

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

    Attached a pump to drain collected water. The


    the water should still collect into the tank. the dehumidifier had a float switch that shut the unit off when the tank is full. In turn it should have a second switch, probably a float switch that turns the pump on and off so that the pump doesnt continue to run when there is no moisture in the tank

    Dehumidifer shuts off when tank is only 1/4 filled


    Sensor calibration . Make sure you are using the factory bucket, I believe it senses the weight of the bucket and water combined.Check and make sure the platform is not taped for shipping .

    Tank still fills when we are using direct drain feature


    check to see that the hose isn't clogged, and that the hose runs down hill from the tank all the way to the drain. if it is higher than the tank at any point in its path it will not drain. you may put the dehumidifier on top of a small platform to aid drainage. also check that the knockout removed so there is a hole to let the water go from the tank to the hose?
