That is exactly what you have to do. If you ever decide to just use the bucket, you will have to buy a hose cap, but they are relatively inexpensive. Hope this helps

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.

How do i make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it


Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

With this model is there a way to attach a hose to it so that I can leave it running continuously while the hose is draining into drainage hole in my basement? m7dh65b2a


Yes, there is a way to do it. As a matter of fact, your model (now discontinued) came with a short section of hose. However, you can still use a short 5' section of garden hose and achieve the same results. To find the hose connection (if you don't have your Owners Manual) remove the bucket and you should see what looks like a hose connection (which it is) behind where the bucket sits in the unit. If it is not there, inspect the back of the humidifier for a small 2"x 2" pop-out compartment door. Inside of that is the hose connection. Remember, dehumidifiers do not have pumps to pump the water out, they rely on gravity for water to flow through and out of the hose.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

How is the external tube for draining outside connected to the dehumidifier. Does the tube insert into the right angle nipple, then the threded end conected to a drain hose?


No. The tube inserts straight into the drain hole. Follow the 4 sets below.

1. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
2. Remove the drain-hole cover.
3. Push hose connector tightly into the drain-hole on Rear Grille.
4. Press the hose down and make sure the "Arrow" on the tab is pointing upward.

NOTE:
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting. Do not over tighten the hose when
connecting it to the hose connector, use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the plastic threads. Be sure the hose lays flat and has no kinks, as it will not drain properly.

I would like to SEE a picture of how to hook up a hose from the DH to a drain.( no manual & cant find one for this DH 304) TO lift the bucket off & drain has become to heavy for me. Thanks,...


My DH 304 is a hand-me-down so I don't have a manual but it did come with a hose attachment which is plastic tube with a threaded end to which you attach a hose. The other end of the tube goes through a hole in the back of the unit and then through a foam screen inside the unit to slip over the drain plug. Aligning the tube and the drain plug can be tricky; it is helpful to remove the bucket to see if you're getting the tube onto the drain plug. Once you have the tube attached to the drain plug, align the tube in the hole in the rear of the unit so that the tab on the tube is inserted into the slot at the hole in the back of the unit.

Have hose hooked up but it does not drain. Compartment fills with water and needs dumped manually. Want the hose to work so twice-a-day dumping in basement not needed. Thanks!


You connected a hose to the hose outlet on the catch tank ... right? The tank will not drain even though there are no kinks in the hose and the end is lower than the tank, right? Did you put a hole in the tank before you attached the hose? I will bet not ... and I will not laff at you ... I did the same.

Put a hole in the tank (where the hose attaches), reattach the hose and all will be well.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com :-)

I purchased a LG Dehumidifier MODEL LHD45EL and I followed instructions to attach a hose to it for the drain. I removed the drain hole cover and I don't see a drain hole connector or a hole to install it...


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

Drain hose attachment


Checkout this website...they have an owners manual you can download: http://us.lgservice.com/ A little hard to find, but it's there. In short, there is a small hole in the back of the dehumidifier between the cord handles. There will be a cap held in place over the hole by three small connectors. With some pliers, remove the hole cover. Take your hose connector and place it in the hole until it won't go any further (you can feel it hit the front of the water bucket). The instructions will show pressing the tab of your hose connector into the bottom of the hole to hold it in place. Don't know about yours, but mine is too long to do that. Connect a short length of garden hose to the threaded end of the connector and you've got it. Instructions say hose has to be flat leading straight from the dehumidifier to a drain, so don't place the draining end of the hose up in a sink or anything, use a floor drain. Hope this helps!
