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.

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.

How do you hook up drain hose to model HDN455 RB


Remove the bucket and remove the plastic cap on the bottom of the bucket. Then take the rubber insert out of the cap and save it. You will use it later. Using the hose that came with the unit, thread it through the cap opening and add the washer to the cap. Screw the cap to the mating connector on the bucket. Be sure to use the washer or the connection will leak. Now, thread the hose through the round hole and extend the hose to the back of the unit. And finally, replace the bucket in it's original position in the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I attached a hose to the drain hose connector. When I insert it into the drain hole it is blocked by the back of the dehumidifier. What iw the correct way to insert? Can you send a better diagram?


The drain hose connector MUST be attached to the unit, before attaching the garden hose.
First, the connector is attached to the unit. Second, the hose is hand tightened to the connector.
If you haven't been doing it in this order, that's the problem.

Can a hose be attached to the LG 45 dehumidifier to allow to drain as it fills?


Yes a hose can be connected to this unit.

1. Remove the drain-hole cover from the back of the unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded hose connector.
3. Push the hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on the back of the unit

This is explained on the manual on page 12. Hope this helps

Unit is repeatedly freezing up


Almost all dehumidifiers now have automatic defrost, but if you are seeing frost is just one small area, it means there is a refrigerant leak. Check your warranty to see if the sealed system is covered longer than one year. Generally, if it is, most manufacturers will replace the unit (rather than repair it, as the repair is rather expensive compared to the cost of a new unit). If you do not have any sealed system warranty coverage left on it, don't fix it. Buy a new dehumidifier.

LG Dehumidifier overflows when attachment tube/hose attached


  • After 1 year of wondering why the LG instruction manual said no more than shove the white hose connector piece into the rear of the unit until secure, and relying on 'hit or miss' that the drain hose would actually work, (rather than filling up the bucket), I have finally found the solution. Ironically, it came while I was on my knees getting serial number from behind the bucket before they would try to help me by phone. There I saw it! The black interior drain piece inside the unit (top right when you remove the bucket) that the white house connector must be secured over. (Nothing in the manual ever told me to look for this.) As for securing the unit in the back--under the big vertical flap (which must point up and remain outside the unit), there is a smaller flap or triangular piece. They say that should be inside the unit, which it doesn't seem to go, because it is parallel to the large vertical flap), but if you push hard enough it does click onto the unit, while allowing the large while flap to remain outside (with the arrow pointing up), making the entire piece secure. Check once more to see if the white hose connector piece is secured over the interior drain piece (a black plastic elbow piece, on the top inside right where you remove the bucket, as I've said), and you'll be good to go! LG should be ashamed of their manual writing on this and the time I wasted getting my two units to work. However, at least these units are not fatally flawed as I was beginning to think.
