Answer: 
Bucket has an inverted handle across the front of it that you gently pull out.
Manual suggests first pushing lightly on the sides first to dislodge the bucket fro the unit and then pulling the bucket on out.

Summers yield high humidity here and air conditioners really do not remove it. High humidity is tough on arthritic bones and so, does this make sense or is the unit for basements and garages?

Answer: 
This would work but is probably more than you need. It works for our 2500 sq. ft. condo on the Gulf coast. We have A/C that handles the humidity in the summer, but in the spring when it wasn't running we relied on this dehumidifer. I think they have a 30-pint version. Maybe you're better off with this large unit and not having to empty as often? Would be pretty loud in your smaller space.

Answer: 
There is a short slightly curved plastic tube that comes out of the unit with a screw on cap.
Assume the connection is the same as the connection for any hose. Appears to be the width of any standard hose but have not tried it myself . No extended tubing comes with the unit. Threads at the end of the tubing look the same as a hose connection.

No, the tubing/hose is not included. I consulted with a Home Depot employee and we bought a washing machine hose to connect to the back. It was under $10 and works beautifully. The washing machine hose is black and ugly; if you want a white hose you will probably have to buy a different type of hose (same diameter) plus a connector gadget to make it thread properly.

Answer: 
No. You have to get a regular garden hose....depending on what length you need. It isn't provided. It does have a place to screw the hose in. Just a standard size. I still had my hose from my last dehumidifier. It works really well, by the way!!!

Thanks for asking such a good question, Ken. This Frigidaire Dehumidifier model comes with an attached water bucket that is conveniently located in the front to make emptying easier; however, it does have a drain hose connection for continuous drainage. (Your retailer may offer an optional dehumidifier drain hose for purchase.) It needs to be 1/2" (12.7 mm) or larger. Alternatively, you may use a garden hose (see page 8 of the owner's manual). You will need to ensure there are no kinks or elevations in the hose and a nearby drain to where water can be discharged. If you choose to use the bucket, the drain cap must be screwed securely to prevent leakage. We hope you find this answer useful, Ken. Please feel free to reconnect if you have further questions!

Answer: 
Perhaps there's no moisture in the air and thats why it stopped collecting water. With me, it drips like crazy because the room has a lot of moisture & dampness. We empty out on a daily basis.

Without knowing the dimensions of where you have this installed, it is hard to be sure of any recommendations. I would suggest that you have at least 18" of unobstructed exhaust fan clearance.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1332 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable I purchased unit over 2-months ago and it has been has been running flawlessly in my basement recreation/office room. Originally started using manual bucket emptying but later switched over to a drain hose into basement drain. Both worked. The unit is set to run automatically until the humidity drops to a preset level. This has also worked with NO problems. It is summer and the outside humidity is normally 80 to 90%, but is 50% in my office area thanks to the dehumidifier. This has been a great unit and I am happy that I choose it. August 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work well, does the job! I purchased this dehumidifier when my wife and I moved into a 1920 house. Basement was damp and we were concerned about moisture seeping through the cement walls. It is a Michigan basement and prone to moisture seeping through. It is mid August, we've had lots of rain and so far so good. It has been keeping our basement dry for about a month and a half. Would highly recommend. You can hook a drainage hose to it and have it drain directly into a drain. First month we just emptied the bucket twice a day. It was always more than half full two times a day. Auto-shutoff works well. August 18, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nice looking, relatively easy to use, inefficient The unit is nice looking and very quiet especially with low fan setting. The controls are fairly easy and the continuous drain is good. However I'm not able to get below 60% humidity, even with constant setting and high fan. Its actually 65% or 70%, working as hard as it can, when it is humid outside. The unit is properly located in a closed 600 square foot space and I would expect to get at least 40% humidity as my other Hisense 50 pint dehumidifier gets in a similar situation. I would recommend for a very small space. August 9, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful but not beastly I seem to have to purchase a new dehumidifier every 3-4 years as I leave it running non-stop in my basement. My last one was an off-brand that was very loud but very effective at removing the humidity. I did research on what the best rated dehumidifiers were and the Frigidaire was at the top of the list. I really like the look of the design, the hose hookup, the buttons and it is very quiet. Sadly, it does not dehumidify very well. It cannot seem to ever get below 40%. I am hoping that it will at least last my 10 years or more. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it's supposed to do I purchased this smaller version of the 70-pint model only after the larger model broke down after just two seasons. This 50-pint model works wonderfully, as did the first model. Right now it's in my basement doing it's job well and efficiently. Frigidaire makes good dehumidifiers that are simple to operate and do an excellent job getting moisture out of the air. That's why I stuck with them even after my bad experience. I only hope I have better luck of this model lasting longer than the other. August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I bought this in late Spring of this year (2016) & I am glad I did. We have had wetter than normal Spring rains & it felt as if the house was musty a lot. The Frigidaire has done a wonderful job of removing the excess moisture from my home. The very first time I had to empty the bucket where the water collects was a real shock! It was difficult to wrap my head around the idea that all of that moisture was previously in my air, rugs, furniture, etc. The house is much more comfortable. It is easier to cool. The air conditioner doesn't seem to come on & stay on as much as it once did before I bought this unit. July 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet and effective I finally bought this unit in May, and we were very satisfied with the effectiveness in pulling out the moisture from our home. Upstairs it gets hot and humid during the summer, and this unit does the trick when we don't want to use the AC. Our basement is damp and cool all winter, and we look forward to being able to use it there when cold weather hits - our old dehumidifier would only work above 60 degrees. This Frigidaire will work to 40 degrees. And it is quiet enough to be in the same room it is run in! August 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does a really good good I bought this at the beginning of summer. I don't have A/C. It has been unusually hot and humid. This has made a big difference. I usually have to empty it twice a day since the tank is only 50 pints, it is easy to empty out. August 19, 2016
