SOURCE: Help for old kenmore dehumidifier

Hello Sandy,
On mine, the filter is in the front. Behind the grill. To remove it, you have to remove the bucket first. Then you can see two tabs sticking down that say "Filter Front". You can reach your fingers up & behind it, grab the lip, and pull straight down. For me it requires more force than expected. With the filter out, put the bucket back in and turn it on. Make sure that there is air blowing out the back to verify that the fan still works. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I connected a hose to my dehumidifier to drain

Check the hose connection on the dehumidifier, as well as the hose for clogs. That is what usually happens when a hose is connected and it doesn't drain properly.

Also, the hose should be no more than 5 feet long and MUST slope downward to drain properly. As, the drain relies entirely on gravity. There is no pump.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Is there a place to connect a hose so dehumidifier will drain into a basement drain?


You don't say what manufacturer or model unit you have, but many models have places at the bottom of the collection pan for a hose connection. Just remember that the basement drain must be lower than the top of the drain pan or the pan will not drain out of the hose.

Hose connected but not draining and bucket filling


I am also an air conditioning tech, with same problem and same soleus dehumidifier problem. you must remove the plug and install the drain line hose adapter. Hose must lay flat and have no "hills" for water to drain. With this done pull your drain pan out and set aside. look under right side facing the dehumidifier and you will see a small spout. Has a lip like a little tea pot. Plug that spout. I used a foam ear plug used in work shops. Now give the front of dehumidifier a slight rise on front wheels about the thickness of a pies of cardboard 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch. Now put drain pan back in an start up. The problem is the drain pan was made with very little differance in pitch between the the hose drain and the bucket drain. Remember to check your drain hose periodically and the air filter also. Good luck

Our new Santa-Fe Classic dehumidifier is leaking water from the bottom of the unit. It's also sending a small amount of water correctly through the tube for dispersal. We've only had it for two...


The classic model drains thru the clear hose using gravity. The drip pan in that unit is about 1/2 way up in the cabinet. Make sure the drain hose exits the unit and runs flat or downhill. If the drain hose is coiled vertically or run up hill causing water to trap within the hose it can cause water to back up in the dehumidifier drip pan and overflow causing your problem. If your drain is higher than the base of the dehumidifier, you can raise the dehumidifier or you can purchase a condensate pump kit that will allow the drain water to be pumped up to 15 feet above the dehumidifier.

The drain hose may have become disconnected from the drip pan as well. To check, turn off the humidistat to stop the dehumidifier from running. Next disconnect the cord from the power supply. Remove the six screws holding the cabinet side (with the label) from the cabinet and remove the cabinet side. The drain hose connects to a nipple on the bottom of the drip pan.

I have Kenmore dehumidifier 580.54701 70. Connected to external drain. Showing 01 code in humidity setting screen. Will not run. Approximately one year old.


Your model Kenmore Dehumidifier, I believe was was made my Haier, for Sears under the Kenmore name. In which case "01" indicates a circuit failure shutdown and needs to be repaired by an authorized Sears service technician. As it may still be in warranty.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Kenmore Dehumidifier wont turn on. There is power to it ,all the indicator lights are on, it just wont start. What's wrong?


Check the over fill switch in the tank. If this is stuck it thinks the tank is full and won't come on. After that your compressor may be bad or the starter for the compressor. The Dehumidifier is basically a small air conditioner that condenses moisture in the air then it drains into the tank.

The bucket drain hole will not hold a hose. The threads are stripped. I would like to order a new bucket. Model#580.53509300 Serial number 308TA14498


Fortunately Kenmore products are normally better at offering replacement parts than many other brands out there.
Here is a Link to SearPartsDirect specific to your humidifier. You will need to look at the "cut sheet" and determine which part you are looking for. Based on your description, it sounds like you need a tank?
I do hope you find this information to be very helpful to you moving forward. Please offer feedback on how I did. :-) If you have further questions, problems, concerns, please let us know. :-)

Water leaks out of the bottom of the humidifier and the bucket does not fill up. The water just leaks out.


Based upon my experience with the same problem on my Kenmore 54701 last summer: The condensate water collects in a plastic pan below the coils. This pan has a single drain hole where the water flows down into the bucket. When I suddenly found water puddling on the floor instead of in the bucket, I opened up the unit, and I found that the collection pan's drain hole had become blocked by "bioslime". I cleaned out the goo from the drain hole, and the problem was solved.

Kenmore Dehumidifier Model 53701


Assuming the unit is level look for a blockage in the drip pan outlet causing it to overflow.

Good luck,

How do i hook up plastic attachment so i am able to run a hose to a drain for continual usuage DH404E


Most brands have a fitting molded into the drain pan that will let you attach a garden hose to the tank. You may have to drill a hole in the fitting to allow the water to drain through.

The water does not go into the tank in the unit, but leaks on to the ground.


Make sure the disc- like stopper plug for garden hose connection point on the rear of the unit is tight. Also with the pan removed make sure that the drain hole to the pan is not obstructed...good luck
