Question about Frigidaire FDL50R1 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Dear sirs I have a 70 pint frigidair dehumidifier model number FDL70S1. I attached a garden hose to the dehumidifier and ran the hose to the sump pump. Instead of the water running thru the hose to the sump pump,somehow it drains into the bucket which needs to be emptied when full defeating the purpose of the garden hose. Please advise.

Hello! Have you checked to make sure that the connection of the garden hose at the humidifier drain port is not leaking? If you see that it is, you can most likely remedy this by removing (if there is one) the rubber washer inside the female end of the garden hose, and replacing with a new one. These can be found at any home improvement/hardware store. I'm assuming, too that you have the hose running through the port on the left side of the unit, and that the bucket is correctly installed. If all of these "check out", then you may have a crack in the drain connection within the dehumidifier.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I have a FDL70S1 Frigidaire 70 pint dehumiifer that runs for 3 minutes then shuts off. I have tried to set the timer for it to run longer but it wont. Do you know what is wrong with it?


Hello lynn crisp, thank you for your post!

From what you have explained regarding your Frigidaire dehumidifier it sounds like the sensor or control panel has become faulty. I would recommend resetting your dehumidifier and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for ten minutes. Is your dehumidifier under warranty? If so, you may want to reach out to the manufacturer for a resolution to the problem. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I appreciate your post, Lee Silvey!

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FDL70S1, will only work in continuous mode. Sounds like you could have a possible issue with the sensor or control panel. Are you under warranty? I would advise you to speak with your manufacturer to see if any further resolution can be provided. -Matt

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier send water outside bucket?


Good Afternoon Jean,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DWD, is putting the water that it collects out onto the floor as oppose to the bucket. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

Soleusair 45 pint dehumidifier won't drain through hose


We have a Soleus Air 30 pint that initially would not drain through the hose that we attached and dropped down the sump drain. After reading here, I tried tilting it back about a quarter inch and that didn't fix the problem. Then I tilted it forward a quarter inch (I put a couple pieces of cardboard under the back wheels) and it started draining properly. It is doing a marvelous job of dehumidifying the house now!

Check the float valve in the top of the bucket. It may be stuck in the UP position. If that the case, jiggle the float valve arm to get it to return to the DOWN position. That should solve the problem.

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.

50 pint dehumidifier has drain hose connected but fills up the drain bucket and stops running....


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.
