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?

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.

I don't see a place to hook up a hose for continuous run into the sub-pump pit. I removed the drip pan and still don't see a place to hook up a hose.


On some models a separate extension tube gets installed through a knockout on the back panel. The extension tube fits into the part where the condensate drips into the pan; the opposite end has threads for a hose. This tube (if applicable to your model) should have been in the box with the unit. There isn't any information on the brand or model you have. Looking at the instructions for your model should also provide an answer. If you no longer have the instructions, turn the unit on and try to locate where the condensate drips into the pan. The hose would have to connect from there.

Direct drain


2 possibilities: #1The port that you plugged the hose onto need to be drilled so the water can come out and enter the hose. #2 The hose cannot be higher at ANY point than the bucket. Physics rules apply and the water will always fill the lowest point. Keep the hose low or raise the dehumidifier up.

Hose connection location


It's generally part of the water collection container. It will look like a garden hose connection. But, their is a plastic knockout that will have to be removed. If it's not part f the container, remove it and look in inside the cavity where the container was, for a hose connection like I described above.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

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 Kenmore 54501 dehumidifier


hi,

somewhere there is a "knockout" or "plug" or something similar you have to remove or replace it to get it to drain through the hose, there should be some documentation in the owners manual about it, try troubleshooting in the back of the manual. If not look directly into the hose outlet and see if theres a plastic plug there, if there is use a screwdriver or something similar to GENTLY remove the plug, you may have to just study the machine when its running to get a better idea of how the water drains, maybe the machine came with something like it in one of the plastic bags the accessories came in.

good luck

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?
