Customer Question

I bought a GE ADEL50 dehumidfier (the 2nd one I own)...the 1st one wouldn't drain via the hose I attached....couldn't find anything wrong..even bought a new hose to be sure it wasn't clogged....eventually it started working, but I don't know what caused it to start going into the hose instead of the bucket.
I bought another one for a rental property yesterday....bought a new clothes washing machine drain hose for it - installed it per the instruction manual.....nothing comes out of the hose, but water drips aggressively from the opposite side into the bucket which fills up & then shuts the unit down when I want it to run continuously. Is there something that restricts water to the bucket or is something clogged that lets water bypass the hose & alternatively goes to the bucket? Your "Troubleshooting Tips" does not offer any assistance....surely you must have numerous complaints regarding this issue?? Please advise what is going on with a brand new unit.....,hasn't had any time for anything to plug up the path to the drain hose.
