Question about Windchaser WDH928 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Hose Drainage There is a knockout port on the side of the dehumidifier. I talked to some guys at work and they said I'd be able to hook-up a hose to have continuous drainage into my subpump instead of constantly emptying the drainage pan. Am I able to do this with the Windchaser?

Re: Hose Drainage

Yes, that is what the knockout port was designed for. Make sure the hose you get does actually thread onto the hose connection port before you punch out knock out. The hose should be a standard garden hose connector.

How to attach drainage hose to drain automatically

Because your model dehumidifier has an unusual continuous drain hook up, as compared to other brands, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your model. You will find the information on page 3. You can downlaod and print the, manual for future reference.

One thing the Owner's Manual fails to mention is the length of the garden hose that can be attached to the unit. It should not exceed 5 feet. As drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

I hope this has helped you. Please let e know. Thanks.

Trying to use the hose rather than emptying the bucket but water continues to drip onto bucket even tho connection to hose appears snug

This may not help because I'm not sure of what you have, but most dehumids when using a hose hook to a fitting on the tank. If that's what you have, before you hook the hose you have to either punch a knockout in the center of the hookup on the tank or cut it out. Hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool Gold dehumidifier with the hose set up for direct water release into a sink drain. I assumed once you hooked up the manufacturer hose provided it would be a direct drain process and...

I have a similar Whirlpool dehumidifier and a similar problem. Have you tried setting it to continuous mode? My understanding was that it would only divert the drainage to a side hose when in the continuous mode.

I've lost the manual. Can I hook a hose directly

yes you can, but you may have to drill it out to let the water out

Continuous drainage

Take out the drain pan and look in left hand top of the compartment and you will see a drain hole for the pan.Plug the drain hole with a small rubber plug, I used an electrical wire nut wrapped with tape and it worked fine.replace the pan and the water will run out the back. A 3/4" garden hose should work for the drain hole.

Missing hose adapter

It might be a problem since these units were made by Fedders for Maytag which is now owned by Whirlpool :inhale: but I found part number FD9520-010 "drain hose". If not, a length of dishwasher drain hose with a male garden hose fitting on one end would work fine

Drain problem

I have the same problem and after talking (mostly waiting) with Fedders repair, I have been told how to solve the problem. Plug up the drain hole on the right side (the one not connected to the drain hose). The drain hole extends down about 5mm, outside measures 10mm and interior measures 7mm. They do come with a drain hold cover. Not a replaceable part with a number. Off to the hardware store.

Tank still fills when we are using direct drain feature

check to see that the hose isn't clogged, and that the hose runs down hill from the tank all the way to the drain. if it is higher than the tank at any point in its path it will not drain. you may put the dehumidifier on top of a small platform to aid drainage. also check that the knockout removed so there is a hole to let the water go from the tank to the hose?
