SOURCE: Dehumdifier won't drain

You just need to get the water flowing and start the siphoning process by taking out the water bucket while it's full of water and raising it up high enough to start the water flowing. Once the water starts flowing, you can put the bucket back and the water will keep flowing (by capillary action). If the bucket empties completely, you may have to do it again periodically to get the water flowing again.

It looks like it is simple to get the filter out but we are finding it to be imposible. How can we take it out. It doesn't just pull down.

SOURCE: My 35 pint (42 54351) dehumidifier is only ~2

There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit, set
the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

I hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Why is my Kenmore Energy Star 50 pint model 251-50501012 dehumidifier leaking water after I disconnected the drain hose


If you reconnect the drain hose, make sure that it lays flat from the dehumidifier and into the sump pump hole. I did that and it solved my problem of water leaking onto the floor.

Soleusair 45 pint dehumidifier won't drain through hose


We have a Soleus Air 30 pint that initially would not drain through the hose that we attached and dropped down the sump drain. After reading here, I tried tilting it back about a quarter inch and that didn't fix the problem. Then I tilted it forward a quarter inch (I put a couple pieces of cardboard under the back wheels) and it started draining properly. It is doing a marvelous job of dehumidifying the house now!

I have lost my instruction manual and cannot change te temperature and humidity settings. How do you do this?


Here is a link to an Owner's Manual for a Haier 45 pint dehumidifier. Not sure if yours exactly like it or not, as you didn't mention a model number. You can download and print the manual for future reference.

The bucket fills with water even though the humidifier is attached to a hose


Most of the units do not require the bucket to be in place, when the hose is attached. However, since you didn't list the Model Number of your unit, I can't be sure that's the case with yours. However, if you click on the following link, and enter the correct model number, you can download and print the Owners Manual for future reference.
