SOURCE: when hose is attached, bucket fills up

The hose connection was ok, but, the hose itself was a lttle, I mean little bit higher than the connector, and as a catch all to not allow flooding, will then drip back into the bucket. I laid the entire hose down and then up a little bit to the pump and it works great. Thanks for all the help

SOURCE: haier 30 pint dehumidifier continuous drain problem.

Many just attach the hose at the reservoir; from your description, Haier apparently has a separate location. Check that the point that the hose attaches has an opening (many don't, they expect you to drill it). It should then drain through gravity. Check to make sure that no part of the drain hose is higher than the bottom of the reservoir, otherwise it can't drain. It won't siphon because each time the the tank empties, the suction is broken and the siphoning can't continue.

SOURCE: CH1 IS SHOWN AS WELL AS THE BUCKET FULL LIGHT

I have a LG model LHD65EBL that first started icing up along the top edge during humid days. After several months of this, it finally stopped working and displayed CH01 with the bucket full indicator flashing.

I took apart the dehumidifier, removed the temperature sensor from the coil and rubbed it between my fingers. I then plugged in the unit and it started right up, confirming either a sensor or other circuit problem related to that sensor. For my model unit, I ordered sensor assembly #6877A30013L from RepairClinic.com for $21.75 + shipping.

When I received the assembly, I measured the new and old sensor with an ohm meter: new sensor = 5.5KOhms, old, defective sensor = 5.34KOhms. I installed the new sensor assembly and the unit is working fine.

Just because the bucket full indicator is flashing along with an error code does not mean there is a problem with the bucket full switch.

SOURCE: I have an LHD6594EBL dehumidifier that won't

Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.

To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

No it is not the cord.

Try it with the bucket instead of the hose.

Let us know what happens.

Why is water going to the bucket instead of getting pumped out the hose? Does this mean the pump has quick working?


It is possible that the drain hose is not properly positioned. It is very fussy about that. Here is a link to the manual on PDF. See pages 8 thru 12.

Dehumidifier is not draining out of the hose.


The hose is most likely clogged. Try blowing into the end of the tube to loosen up the dirt in the water tank. You can use compressed air if you have it but plan on water spilling out of the back to be safe.

Hose hooked up but bucket fills anyway. Hose is attached to internal nozzle. Is that right?


The problem you're having is generally cause by the drain hose or drain hose connection being clogged. When that happens water is diverted to the bucket. To solve this problem do the following:

First disconnect the drain hose for clogs to check for a clog.. Also, the hose should be no longer than 5 feet. If the hose is clear, the clog is in the hose connection or tubing.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor ithe hose for drainage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers

I hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Soleus Air Dehumidifier, Model SG-DEH-70-1A, I cannot get it to drain through the hose rather than into the bucket. The instructions say to simply hook the hose up, which I have done, but it...


Several things play a role in the problem you're having.

1. The length of the hose. Shouldn't exceed 5 feet.

2. Is the hose sloping downward from the unit with out any kinks or twists. Most dehumidifiers rely
entirely on gravity to drain the water by hose. It will not drain up and over anything.

3. Is/was there a knockout plug on the dehumidifiers hose connection, that was not removed?

4. Is there a clog in the hose? If so, the water will divert to the bucket.

5. The unit's hose connection or interior tubing is clogged. To solve this problem do the following.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connector hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Then monitor the hose for water flow.

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

It sounds like the unit should have came with a plug for the hole. You can probably obtain a plug from a home improvement or hardware store or even improvise one yourself. Also, make sure the unit is pitched so that the water actually runs towards the hose.

What setting do you have to have it on for the water to come out of hose only


The water collection bucket may have a hose tap in it. But, in your case the hose drain connection is on the side of the unit. You have to remove the cover of the hose connection, before you can connect the garden hose. Here's where it gets a little tricky, because the Owners Manual says to leave the bucket in place. However, the Troubleshooting Guide says to remove the bucket, if water is not draining thru the hose. Which to me, makes sense, because the unit can't recognize that the hose is connected, if the bucket is still installed, because it has a safety switch.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, here is a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

My direct drain connection seems to have quit working. The drainage bucket fills rather than the water exiting the drain hose.


The line may have "gunk" built up in it. I would suggest checking the drain line to make sure it is not blocked.
