SOURCE: Model AD50USS1 Dehumidifier, discharge hose

The problem is that either the discharge hose is clogged, to long. 48" is the standard length. In addition, the hose connector on the unit and it's interior tubing may be clogged.

The hose is easy to check for a clog. Simply remove it and either look thru it or blow thru it. If the hose is clear, the clog is in the hose connection and/or the inner drain tubing. To unclog it, do the following.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection & 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. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose end, for water flow. It may take 10 minutes or more for the water to start flowing.

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
.

Hope this helps you unclog the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My dehumidifier is not discharging water out of the hose. It all collects in the tank, which I have to keep emptying


Skooter, the problem you're having is a result of either the drain hose being clogged or the inner tubing of the hose connection is clogged. When this happens the water is diverted into the bucket. To solve the problem do the following:

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection and 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. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose end for water flow. . Be patient, as it may take up to 10 minutes or water for water to appear.

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

The hose discharge does not work


This may be as a result of a clog in the hose or inside the hose connect tubing of the unit. When this happens, water continues to go into the bucket. To troubleshoot and solve the problem, follow the directions below.

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet.

2. Disconnect the hose (which should be no longer than 5 feet) and inspect for clogs. If any found,
remove them.

3. If the hose was not clogged, use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar. That is flexible and appropriately sized to fit into the hose connection. NO wire coat hangers, though.

4, Carefully, insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie.

5. While pulling it back out, rotate (twist) the Zip Tie. This will help dislodge any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

6. Reconnect the hose to the coupling and make sure that it has a downward slope and no kinks or significant beds. The water drainage relies entirely on gravity. Then turn plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level at 32 - 35%.

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

Hi, I have an LG dehumidifier, model number LHD650EBL. I have a hose attached and inserted directly into a drain in my basement, bypassing the water tray. Problem is, my dehumidifier is saying...


Try to see if operating the float lever by hand can make it turn off the 'bucket full' message. Maybe use a rubber band or tape to keep it in the on position vs. the 'bucket full' off position.

Check to see if the bucket has to be inserted for the unit to operate, and if the bucket has a nozzle to hook a hose up to at the bottom. I have a dehumidifier of a different brand that has this feature that works with the bucket in, but with the drain nozzle on the bucket connected to a plastic tube that leads to a drain for continuous operation without having to empty the bucket.

How is your hose attached to the unit if it isn't attached to the bucket?

Good luck on this repair.

Make sure the hose is clear. Did you put a hole in the attaching place for the hose? Most tanks come with no hole even though there is a hose place in the tank.

Has anyone figured out how to get a 25-pint Frigidaire dehumidifier (model FDD25S1) to put water out the drain hose for continuous draining instead of into the bucket? It appears to be impossible to connect the hose in a way to avoid water leaking into the bucket.

Make sure the coils are clean. (check the inside part of the coils. If they look ok then see if your compressor is running. if its not running then it could be any number of things. I recommend that you have a pro look at it
