GoldStar DH504EL Dehumidifier

Can I convert the unit to only use the drain hose instead of the bucket, so I don't have to empty the bucket? It would be great if the unit kept running and kept emptying via the attached hose eliminating the need for the bucket.

    MNTech - thanks for getting back to me. It does have a tube (onto which I attached a small piece of garden hose) and I'm using it. But every day the bucket is still full and the unit shuts off. If I take out the bucket the unit shuts off automatically...if I put the bucket in the bucket fills up instead of expelling the water out of the tube...so how do I bypass the bucket so only the tube is being used? Is it possible to take the bucket out and still make the unit run (utilizing the tube for expelling the water)?

Your dehumidifier should have come with a tube which would allow you to do this very easily. I beleive the part number is 5214A20027B.

    Your original post was very incomplete. You did not state that you had the tube, or that the bucket was still filling. You did not state how you attached your drain hose to the unit. The tube passes through the dehumidifier from the back, by the cord wind up pegs, to the front where it collects the condensate before it can enter the bucket. If it is hooked up properly and you are filling the bucket you have an obstructed drain hose. (kinked?) Please don't rate me as a "thanks for trying" when you have withheld information pivotal to the diagnosis.

I have a Goldstar GHD30 dehumidifier. I have not used it in awhile. I plugged it in to run it today and it does not turn on. I cleaned the screen and tried different outlets, nothing works. HELP!


Check the condensate collection bucket. If the bucket is not inserted correctly the dehumidifier might think the bucket is full and thus not turn on.

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

hey i just got paid by some guy to haul away a broken fan(currently fixing) DH504ELY5 dehumidifier on my model with bucket removed front facing you reach to the far right the orfice there drains to the bucket id only assume just get the proper od hose(even clear) from a hardware store attach it and it should be fine- take back panel off(plastic 6 screws and youll have to gently pry the "clips" out of the steel back-dont worry if one breaks the screws will still keep the back on on reassembly) there is a hole with a foam kinda adhesive tape over it it is perforated for the purpose of an external hose feed it through there and out of the hole thats in the middle of where the power cord winds up for storage-all will be a straight shot on reassembly no twists or turns try that should do the trick and you can keep the bucket on there:)
