SOURCE: How to connect drain hose?

You need the white pipe that came with it. Remove the circle on the back left of the unit with pliers or a screwdriver. Take out the bucket. screw the hose to the pipe. Push the pipe through the hole in back and break through the rubber membrane. In front, connect the white pipe to the elbow pipe at the top. Make sure the smaller tab on the white pipe (back of machine) is pointing down and the larger one up. The smaller tab goes behind the back cover and (sort of) holds the pipe in place. You still need the bucket in place for the machine to turn on.

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 50 pint dehumidifier has drain hose connected but

safety switch is turning off the dehumidifier....you need to drain out the bucket more often....or put the drain hose into an actual drain....ive seen some people run a small plastic hose from the dehumidifier to the sump pump hole in their basement.

I love this dehumidifier, but can not figure out how to connect a hose to the bucket so that it continually drains, as opposed to the bucket filling up. Where is the connection for the hose on this unit?


Terry, the hose connection should be on the rear of the uni, covered by a screw off cap. The hose can be not longer than 48" and should slope down and straight to the floor drain. As, proper drainage relies entirely on gravity.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where can I get hose ,hose attachments for my Goldstar dehumidifier? Can not locate my manual or attachments.


Fortunately, it doesn't require a special hose, as a standard Garden Hose Connection is on the left side of the water collection bucket. You may have to carefully drill a 1/4 " hole in the center of the connection, once you unscrew the drain cap. The hose should be no longer than 5' , as the drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

When attaching the the hose, be sure that the female hose connection has a washer in it or it will leak. Hand tighten the hose connection firmly, being careful not to crack the plastic hose connection on the tank. Also, be sure that the float valve in the tank is in the DOWN. position or the unit will not run.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Where do i find the model number for an older model goldstar dehumidifier and where can i buy a hose to connect it directly to the sump pump?


Any garden hose will fit the drain connection on your dehumidifier. However, the hose can not be longer than 5 feet. As the drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain. Connecting it directly to a sump pump is not a good solution. Allowing the hose to drain into the sump pump's water collection tank is your only option.

Hope this helped you.

Where does the drain hose attach to the goldstar dh504e dehumidifier?


First look at the top of the collection bucket - do you have a garden hose adapter (they can generally stored in a spot on top of the bucket cover. If so you can use a garden hose. If not, you can buy a length of plastic or vinyl tune at a hardware store.
looking from the back - look at left side and you'll see a knock-out. punch that out and look inside to see the hose connection (generally black plastic)
or
take out the bucket, and look at the right side at the bottom of the "roof" of the area here the bucket goes. there is a small tube pointing toward the back of the unit - right at the knock-out

for my machine, I went to home depot and bought a 20 foot length of the right diameter vinyl hose and it drains into a floor drain - I never have to touch the unit expect to clean the filter

Why did my dehumidifier start draining into the bucket when I put the drain hoze? Previous to putting on the hoze it was draing out the back.


Check for crub which may be blocking the drain hose. Blow the hose out by connecting it to your outside garden hose and turning on the water full force. Then reattach it to your dehumidifier.

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

Check the connection where you attached the hose. It may be plugged or covered by a plastic film from when it was molded.

Lost suction to drain into hose connector


I've had a similar problem and I was told by Whirlpool that the hose has to run down along the side of the dehumidifier and not straight out. I moved it and things improved; then I moved it again and it got worse. So maybe you moved the hose while cleaning the vent, and moving the position around will help?
