Look inside where the bucket goes in at the top right hand side is the bucket switch. Hold it in and start the unit. If it runs the arm on the switch must be bent SLIGHTLY until it makes contact with the button and the lite goes out with the bucket in.

How to trouble shoot our dehumidifier.


well this might be a small shortcomming of this model but as silly as it sounds even if you use a external hose to drain water from unit the float inside bucket still is active in unit so i bet if you look carefully the little float in corner of bucket is Just " not quite right" a little adjustment of this and im sure you can get it running again

Unit keeps cycling off and on with the "bucket full" light blinking


It appears as if the water may not be flowing through the hose.
* When you use a hose the unit must be located near the drain. If the hose is to long the water will not flow freely and cause the water to back up in the hose triggering the bucket full.
* If the unit is lower or the hose runs up hill even the slightest incline will cause the water not to flow backing up to the machine
* Hose must remain flat and in a down hill flow to the drain if you are running a longer hose than recommended. If you are have a long distance to run the hose elevate the dehumidifieer by placing it on a stand, milk crate, anything that will hold the unit. Be sure it is large enough and strong enough to support the unit to prevent it from falling. This will help siphon the water from the unit and prevent any water to back up the unit.
* If your using an old hose make sure there are no kinks and water flows freely through the hose. Any kinks or type of pinch in the hose will cause the water to back up

I hope this helps resolve your issue. This is the most common mistake when using a hose.

Our bucket full light is on but we only have a hose running out to the drain. My husband shorted out that circuit but the light still comes on and we can't turn on the unit. Any help with this? Thanks


The reason the light cam of the first time was because the either the attached hose is clogged or the hose connection of the unit is clogged. When this happens, the bucket full light comes ON, because of the clog or the bucket was not reinstalled properly and didn't trip the bucket, safety removal, trigger switch. Be sure the bucket is reinstalled so the the Top and Bottom fit squarely into the bucket holder.

Hopefully, your husband can undo what he's already done, clear the clogs and the unit may run again, as it should.

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

I have an LHD6594EBL dehumidifier that won't run and it keeps saying the bucket is full but the bucket is empty, we have a hose attached and don't use the bucket,


Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.

To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I am not sure of the exact model number, but the unit is rated for 70 pints. It shutdowns and lights the full bucket lamp, but the bucket is not full (there is a hose attached). I dis-assembled the unit...


The problem is that the hose connection tube that the hose is connected to, is clogged. That's the reason water was going to the bucket and the full bucket sensor was shutting the unit OFF

To unclog the tube, you will need an 18" long Plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire Coat Hangers, though) that is appropriately sized to fit into the hole. Before doing anything, Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit.

Carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hose connection hole/tubing and continue to gently push it in, until it reaches the bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work past this bend, until it bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, slowly remove it, while rotating it. This will dislodge the clog. As the Zip Tie is almost totally removed, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above should solve your problem. Will you still need the wiring schematic to reconnect the bucket safety switch? If so, please let me know.

The dehumidifier will not run. It has power to the control panel but the "bucket full" light is flashing RED. We have a hose hooked up to the unit to drain the water and we have check the bucket...


Generally, the buckets on these units can be a little finicky. Especially, if the bucket is not installed properly. In other words, if the bucket doesn't trip the safety switch, when it's out in place and the "bucket full" indicator will remain on and the unit will not run. I suspect the hose attached to the bucket may have gotten the bucket slightly out of place and it's not triggering the safety switch. Turn the unit off, and reinstall the bucket,. Then turn the unit back ON. Make sure there is a little slack in the hose from the unit to the where ever you're draining the water to. In other words, the hose should not be pulling on the bucket.

As I said, they can be a little finicky, so be patient reinstalling the bucket. As it may take several tries, before you get it right.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

We had a hose attached to empty into a drain, but the hose came loose. Now it won't run because it shows the bucket is full.


Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

I have the hose hooked up to the back but it keeps filling the tank and shuts off when it's full ,how do you just use the hose to drain


I believe you have to put a plug to drain that drains into the tank ,then it can only drain out the hose.

Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.
