Question about LG LD65EL Dehumidifier
Make sure hose is flat with no high or low spots. Blow or **** out hose and pour somr bleach water through hose.

Had the same problem. Make sure you tighten the house a little with
pliers. Also, make sure the dehumidifier is up a lot higher than where
you're draining it into. Mine drains into a utility sink. But I have
the dehumidifier propped up onto a dresser. I cut a small piece of
hose to run into the sink. Seems to be working now.
It will take 5 min or so to establish a water flow, so be patient after you hook everything up. Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

I fixed the same problem, finally. At first it was sufficient to clean the outside hose (it was filled with a **** builtup). Then it stopped working again. I decided to open the unit and see how easy it is to clean the inside drain hose. It is very easy. Once you unscrew the back panel (8 screws total if i remember correctly) you can access the back and you see the drain hose that connects to the drain outlet. To remove it and clean it, you will have to unfasten the big capacitor (3 screws). Then, remove the hose and clean it (mine was full of that same **** stuff). Reinstall - you will need a tie wrap to connect the hose at the top, as it is from the factory. Very easy operation and now the dehumidifier is draining again.

Remove the drain bucket. on the top there are two pieces that can be removed just by taking them out. they are just laying in there. 1 is the brush the other is the "drain tube insert" it is a plastic tube and has a threaded fitting on one end. take your garden hose with a female connector on one end just like you were going to install on your spicket outside of your house and connect it to the threaded end of the "drain tube insert" make sure you knockout the round plastic drain plug cover hole located in the back of the unit (it is behind where your power cord was stored) it has three tabs to break. remove drain bucket. take the drain tube with hose attatched and insert it into the drain plug hole in the back and attach it onto the drain outlet (the drain outlet is inside the drain bucket side at the top it looks like an elbow fitting) push the tube so that the flap with the arrow is flush with the back. once you get the "drain tube insert" almost all the way flush with the back -->if you look inside the drain bucket side you will see where it fits over the drain outlet

(assumming you are not an idiot, like the other solver suggested) you may very well have it connected to the right spot, many of these units, are not balanced well, (or are balnaced all to well, depending on how you look at it) The imbalance, basically makes the water drip to the front, instead of the back. Try to put something under just the front of the machine, to tilt it back, ever so slightly. Good luck
