My LD301EL dehumidifier is missing a hose connector cap. How do I get another one.

This unit never had this cap. I am 82 years old and find emptying the water is too difficult for me. Please help.

Push through the membrane with the drain connector. The membrane has a circular cut almost all the way through it, and pushing at it with the drain connector will pop out the little hole. I've done it with four LG units.

SOURCE: LG LD65EL dehumidifier will not collect water

Make sure the filter is clean and also make sure the coils are cleaned. If these are clogged they will restrict airflow which will cause the coils not to remove the humidity from the air. LG recommends that you clean the air filter every 2 weeks. They also include a brush to clean the coils. If this still does not work you will need to contact LG for service or a replacement. They have a 5 year warranty on them so the ones that you guys have should still be under warranty. Make sure that you have your reciept when you contact them to prove that it is still under warranty. Keep me posted. Also please rate my solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

SOURCE: Water from LG 30 pt dehumidifier drains into

(assumming you are not an idiot, like the other solver suggested) you may very well have it connected to the right spot, many of these units, are not balanced well, (or are balnaced all to well, depending on how you look at it) The imbalance, basically makes the water drip to the front, instead of the back. Try to put something under just the front of the machine, to tilt it back, ever so slightly. Good luck

Why does water leak onto the floor instead of draining into the tank?

The hose connector should be capped or a hose connected and directed to a floor drain.

I have a Danby dehumidifier model DDR6011R and it runs but I have yet to empty any water from it. I have used other dehumidifiers in the same area and they take out tons of water. What's the problem

1st ck your humidistat settings yes the fan can run but not the compressor to take water out
2nd ck your filters could they be blocked ?
and last but not least if the unit is more than a few years old its not as efficient as newer units and will take much longer to work consider an upgrade to a newer unit , also moisture levels in basements vary due to season , winter not as damp as summer so volume of water removed will change
use an external humidy gauge to verify it working correctly there not so expensive now and can be gotten most places that sell dehumidifyers 70 % rh is considered normal

There may have been a failure in the area where water is collected and directed to the bucket but also check to determine whether the bucket is reinstalling correctly after it has been emptied.

Gayle, your unit has some age on it, but it may still be salvageable .

There are 5 basic, but solvable reason 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%. Or set to Maximum if yours
is a manually controlled unit.

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
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

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. As far as repairs are concerned: The unit is 14 - 16 years old and the cost to repair, may be as much (or close to it) as purchasing a new unit. If you decide to purchase a new unit, be sure it's a "Low Temperature" model, as yours is being used primarily in a basement application.

I hope I have helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Cannot connection drainage hose because of blocking cap. Do I have to disassemble whole cabinet?

The cap should just screw off the hose connector. You may have to carefully drill a 1/4" hose in the center of the threaded hose connector, once the cap is unscrewed. Some models require that, others don't.
