Try cleaning the filter first. Wash it with water and let it dry overnight. Then make sure no debris is blocking the inside of the spiggot which fills the pan. The spiggot can get blocked by dust anddebris or insect webs. Clean thoroughly with a rag and your finger.

It can have leaks from the condenser to the bucket. The piping and hoses should be checked all the way. Perhaps even replaced or at least cleaned. I don't think it is wise to do this yourself. Because in the system also can be algae, bacteria and viruses. And you need tools and skills to replace defective tubes, pipes or gaskets.

Robert, The water tubing that runs form the interior of the unit to the water bucket is clogged to solve this problem, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then do the following.

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: Is you don't have access to a Zip Tie, you can use something similar that flexible, like a long pipe cleaner. But, NO wire coat hangers.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

It runs but leaks water, water won't stay in bucket


Denise, there are several things that can cause the problem.

1. The water collection bucket is not installed properly. Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. While you have it out, look at the top of the bucket, is there a float valve near the top. If so, it may be stuck in the DOWN position, which tells the dehumidifier the bucket is not full yet. Jiggle the arm of the float valve to see if it moves freely. Reinstall the bucket bucket "squarely" from top to bottom into it's holder. The bottom should not tilt down at all, if installed properly.

2. The drain tube to the bucket may be clogged. To solve this problem do the following:

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

3. The water you're seeing may not be from the bucket overflowing or leaking. It's condensation that is has built up on the cooling coils and is dripping down under the unit. If this is the case, it's an indication that the coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Warm water and dish washing liquid works well to clean the coils. Be sure to rinse them with a damp rag, dry thoroughly and spray a light coating of WD40 on them.

I hope that all the information I have provided will help you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Goldstar DH305 is leaking water. I've cleaned the filter and coils and have taken the bucket out and put it back to be sure that it is in properly but it is still leaking.


Terryle. the problem may very well be a clog in the drain tube to the bucket. Even a partial blockage can cause it. Follow the instructions below to resolve the problem.

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit.

2. Remove the water collection bucket from it's holder and set it aside.

3. Inside the top of the bucket holder cavity, you should see a small tube or hole that drains water
into the bucket.

4. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is
appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the tip of the Zip Tie into the hole
and continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly, work the
Zip Tie past this bend. Until it bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly remove
the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared,
as some water may follow.

5. Reinsert the bucket into it holder, making sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the
holder. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set you humidity
extraction control on 32 to 35%. If you have a manually controlled unit, set it on Maximum and
take it for a test drive. In about 30 minutes or so, you should be able to tell if it's still leaking or
not.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

The dehuidifier has started leaking water out of the bottom of the unit. Water bucket is correctly installed.


Hi,
This is usually caused because of dirt buildup where the water runs out into the bucket...
Find the little tube or spout that runs the water into the bucket... then use a small toothpick or canned air to clean it out and get the water flowing out of it again...

My dehumidifier is only a couple months old and is leaking water all over the floor while collecting in the bucket too. Why and how can I fix it? - I will take it back under warranty but would rather just...


The leaking problem usually happens for 2 reasons,

1. If your unit is equipped with a float valve inside the top of the water collection bucket, it's stuck in
the UP position. Turn the unit OFF and unplug for the wall outlet. Remove and empty the bucket
if necessary. Look at the foam ball on the end of the float valve arm. If it's in the UP position
jiggle it, so that it returns to the DOWN Position. That should stop the wter from overflowing the
tank.

2. If the bucket is not installed properly into the bucket holder. Remove the bucket, empty the
bucket, if necessary and reinstall it. Be sure that the bucket fits "squarely" into the bucket
holder from top to bottom and that it does not tilt downward at the bottom.

It's also a good idea to check the pump switch for continual draining, to make sure it hasn't been accidentally turned ON.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

If the unit is leaking under the bucket and you haven't been able to find a crack or hole in the bucket. The bucket may not be properly inserted in to the dehumidifier. Remove the bucket, empty it and reinsert it into the unit making sure that it fits in squarely (Top to Bottom).

If the above doesn't correct the problem, the drain tube to the bucket may be partially clogged. To check this, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar. But NO wire coat hangers. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the bucket and you will see a drain hole or tube at the top of bucket cavity. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in unitl you reach the bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, slowly remove the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Compressor and fan working but no water


Take the bucket out and remove the two (black colored phillips head) screws at the bottom of the front panel, just above where the bucket was. Push the bottom of the panel to the side a bit to release the retaining tabs from the metal side panels and pull the bottom of the panel forward to remove the panel from the top tabs, leaving wires attached. Put the bucket back in place and observe the coils while compressor and fan run for several minutes (5 to 10 minutes will do). If coils do not get cold, or only get cold over a small area, you have a refrigerant leak. A refrigerant leak is not economical to repair. Most dehumidifiers have a 5 year sealed system warranty, so round up your receipt and call LG with the model and serial number (located on a sicker behind the bucket) to get an exchange unit. Going from memory here, but I think you can reach LG at 1-800-256-0000.

Water leaks around the bucket even the bucket is in place-bucket collects a little bit of water


It sounds like you need to check the drain under the cooling section. It can fill with dust, lint, cat hair, spiders, etc. and prevent water from draining into the bucket. First, unplug the unit. Don't do anything with AC power present. Then, remove the 2 screws under the front panel where the air filter slides up in and pull off the control panel. There are "snap" latches in the plastic near the top that can be (are) hard to undo, so be careful. You might want to have work gloves on because of sharp edges. Prying with a screw driver will cause permanent dents in the plastic. Also, there is a small, sleeved bunch of wires that goes up the left side to the operator buttons and display. Be careful not to damage it and the circuit board it goes to. Set the front panel aside, wire attached. There is no need to disassemble any of that. The drain is a small 3/8" hole in the black plastic floor of the cooling area at the front, right side. It seems to have a fitting for a hose that feeds through to the back of the unit. Clean any foreign material from it and everything else. Test it, with the bucket in place, by pouring some water in, if you want to. Then clean the dust off of everything so it looks new. Don't get the circuit board wet. Re-assemble, being careful with the front panel wire so it is not pinched and does not prevent easy removal/installation of the filter, and it should be OK.

Leak


Mine did this last year. I took the housing off of the left side and found a clear plastic tube had popped off the fitting, I put it back on and it worked fine. The tube was toward the lower front of the unit.
