Question about Whirlpool Dehumidifiers
When I try to use the hose connection for the dehumidifiers to automatically drain into my sump pit, they do not and just fill up the buckets and shut off when they are full. How do I fix it so that they will drain themselves through the hose and not shut off?

SOURCE: Connecting a drain hose
Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.

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.

Hey ya! To fix this u need to block that hose connection under the Dehumidifier. This will then re direct the flow to the Bucket collection mode. I have the same problem and resolved it this way after pullng mine apart. It looks like by default that hose connection at the bottom should have a plug/cap on it and after turning on ur dehumidifier this fills up then once full it starts to over flow into the bucket... Seems a strange design but thats how they have done it.
Hope this helps others.

SOURCE: Dehumidifier Error?
Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).
Replaced the main controller board to fix it.
For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.
