HAIER HD308 DEHUMIDIFIER - THE HOSE TROUBLE
FOR CONTINUOUS WORKING AND WATER LOSS
COULD BE FIXED BY THE FRONT WARTER OUTLET


1) Unplug the machine before proceeding

2) Remove the water bucket. At this point the signal ''bucket full'' may light on. Notice it's impossible to activate the dehumidifier while the bucket is removed untill you put it back properly.

3) At the bucket's place, in a hole into the right upper corner, there's a metal switch wich is actived by the floater to make the machine stop automaticly when the bucket is normally full of water and for the signal light to respond.
Bypass the switch by wrapping it in a big chunk of some blue poster-gum sticker, then press it to the bottom BUT NOT TOO MUCH to make sure you don't break the metal switch or distort it. Put enough blue sticker gum to cover the hole flat to the rest of the plastic box.

4) Put some red Tuck tape the one used for car lights over the sticker gum BUT NOT TOO MUCH AGAIN, put it on the vertical side of the box around the hole only. You can also use vertical tape stripes to make eventual loss follow down to the lower plate normally holding the bucket (see step 5)
That will prevent the ''bucket full'' signal and stopping of the dehumidifier while working after the modifications.

5) Put a small piece of towel or absorbing cloth over the lower part of the inside box in case water condensing from the upper part of the inside box would drain.

6) At the front of the inside box, at the left upper corner, there's the common use water outlet wich drain normally the water into the bucket. Notice this part out of the front side is not very long, about an inch. Find about at least 4 feet of some aquarium air tubing or any transparent plastic soft tubbing FITTING EXACTLY the front water outlet. MAKE SURE THE TUBBING IS COVERING ALL THE OUTLET PART. USE A TUBBING A BIT BIGGER THAN THE OUTLET AND PUSH IT HARD TO MAKE IT FIT. DON'T GREASE OR MODIFY THE WATER OUTLET TO PLUG THE TUBBING. INSTEAD, HEAT THE TUBBING APPART IF NEEDED BUT NOT TOO MUCH AGAIN, this will povide elasticy to help you during few seconds placing the tubbing around the outlet. Notice the space between the outlet and the inside box edge is restricted. Tubbing not enough tight or tight enough but not well installed will unplug itself if not placed properly and may result in a hazardous drain to the floor.

7) Put a simple cable-tie (tie wrap) around the tube and pull BUT NOT TOO HARD, you don't want the water outlet to break! Make sure the tubbing is holding and verify each time you move the tubbing and-or the dehumidifier.
Some Crazy glue, epoxy glue or any harder stuff could make permanent tubbing option too, but DON'T USE HOT GLUE; heat of the gun tip and glue may damage or distort the tubing, and again water may infiltrate and drain out to the floor.

8)
MAKE SURE THE CHOSEN DRAINING SPOT IS TOTALLY FREE, NO CLUG. Dispose the dehumidifier on a solid straight surface holding close to the chosen draining spot as the sink, the bath, the toilet, the shower drain, the washing-machine drain, etc. Put the end of the tubbing over the drain spot.
NEVER PUT THE DEHUMIDIFIER DIRECTLY INTO THE DRAINING SPOT LIKE STANDING IN THE BATH OR THE SINK BUT BESIDE, OBVIOUSLY NOT TOO CLOSE TO FALL IN.
Make sure the dehumidifier is placed higher than the drain spot to ALLOW THE TUBBING TO DRAIN DOWNWARD, NEVER LOOP FORM OR UP AND DOWN SHAPE THE TUBE. ALWAYS ONE WAY : DOWN BY GRAVITY to make sure the water is not blocking and submerging the whole thing from inside.
(This experimentale tubbing way had not yet tested the water pressure on this model).

9) If needed,
with tie-wraps or tape, attach the tubbing to something heavy or designed for the task to help the tubbing keep pointing down it's way down the drain spot.

10) Plug the dehumidifier back, set it to function and ENJOY!


NOTICE THAT THE DEHUMIDIFIER WILL NOT STOP UNTILL YOU SHUT THE FUNCTION DOWN OR TEST IT'S LIFE TIME CAPACITY IN A CONTINUOUS WORKING.

PLEASE REPLY BACK IF YOU TRY THIS!
I NEED TO KNOW HOW LONG CAN A HAIER HD308 CAN LIVE THAT WAY BEFORE MALFUNCTIONNING OR STOPPING RIGHT DEAD.
THANK YOU

    HAIER HD308 DEHUMIDIFIER
    NOTE : FOR CANCELLING ''BUCKET FULL'' SWITCH ACTION: replace the blue sticker gum and tape for a pop-sicle stick: hold the switch pushed in the bottom, insert the pop-sicle stick upward tight, right beside the switch and bend it a little to make the switch go off. but not too hard the stick need to be still acting as a spring effect to maintain the switch pushed. You can glue it to the cover box with some epoxy or PL premium ceramic glue when the stick is in place.

Hello cccookies:
I had the same problem with my Haier (same model). My solution was not very elegant, but it worked:
1) Drain washer + tube and ensure they are completely empty (no water left inside).
2) Remove drain tube and wipe connecting part dry.
3) Wrap duct tape around the part onto which you would normally stick the drain tube. This will make it harder for the tube to slip off. (Make sure that the opening is not obstructed by the tape.)
4) Put back drain tube + metal clamp.
5) Use some more duct tape to connect the exterior of the washer to the drain tube, and vice versa. If you use white tape, it won't look quite as hideous, and you will still save yourself trips to the laundromat.
6) Always monitor washer when in use.
Hope this helps!

Why will Haier HLP21E drain following wash cycle, but not drain following rinse cycle/before spin cycle?


Hello Michael;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like your system just needs a good cleaning. Soap film will build up on the draining system components. You need to clean your float and insure it moves freely and makes contact with the float switch which turns on the pump. You may also need to disassemble your pump for cleaning.

There are products available for cleaning clothes washers, but these need to be used on a regular bases. I do not think they can clean enough to solve your current problem. Use after you have cleaned.

My washer has a LD in the minute screen how do i get this off


LD is an error code relating to poor drainage. Check the drain hose and/or pipe for a clog. It's also possible that debris could have worked itself into the drain pump, causing a delay in drainage. Fixing your drainage problem will fix the LD error code.

The OE code keeps coming up and the machine wont drain I checked and cleared all of the drainage tubes and it still is doing the same thing


If what you have done did not solve your problem, you will have to replace the drain pump motor. It can be done without taking the front off the washer with a little work. Unplug power from machine. Drain water from filter area. Remove screw from filter recess area, then use a putty knife on the side of the recess to pop the rectangular recess out. Remove two phillips head screws passing through metal to pump housing. Pull washer forward about 2 feet and lean it back against the back wall. reach under washer and depress tab holding pump assembly to washer base. It's easiest to remove hoses and disconnect electric plug to pump and completly remove pump assembly to replace pump motor, which is held onto housing by 3 phillips head screws. Reassemble and test.

The last 3 times after using my top load Kenmore clothes washer, a mud spot (1/2" diameter) keeps reappearing in the bottom of the cylinder. Should I use draino to clean the drainage system or clean the...


DO NOT use Draino or any other drain clog removal chemicals to clean a washer. It could damage the tub seal, drain lines and/or pump & impeller. If you wish to clean the washer, you need to access the drain pump and remove the drain lines and flush them out. The following link explains how you can access and remove the pump:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top

I would recommend you UNPLUG the washer and take it to a location where you can flush water through it. Preferrably outside, or in a garage. If you lie the drain hose on the floor and fill the wash tub with a garden hose, simple gravity will flush water through the tub basin, drain pump and drain lines.

If you have any questions about these procedures, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: The drain pump has only one moving part (the impeller). It is a common place for debris to collect. Remove the two drain hoses on the pump to inspect.

Draining extra water


Cut off the zip tie that holds the drain tube. Bring the drain tube as close to the ground as possible and siphon out the water - yes, that means sucking on that hose. Have a bowl handy to collect the water, or do it somewhere you don't mind getting wet. Just keep the end of the hose lower than the basin of water and you should have no problems.

Washer won't drain after wash cycle


It may be a blocked pump under the machine.
I removed debris that got clogged there when the machine drains.
1) unplug machine
2) tilt machine back
3) locate pump under front right corner
4) remove pump by pushing and twisting it counter clockwise - note the locking latch needs to be lifted at same time
5) look for debris blocking the drainage tubes.

No Drainage Stoppage?


The drain hose has to be higher than the full water tub level or it will keep draining out make sure your hose is high enough

F02 what does it mean


I have had this issue more than once. It was an easy fix for me (maybe a 20 minute job and best of all no money). For my F 02 error it was my 4 year olds socks that some how got down the drain line and stuck in the clean out. Here is what you do. There are 3 screws bottom of the front access plate. Remove these and the lower access plate will pop right off. Right in front you will see the pump and the drain line. It has a clean out right there. Unscrew the cap (be ready for alot of water to rush out, so have alot of towels ready). Once the water is drained remove the cap. The cap has a trap so that larger items do not get to the pump. This is where I find the socks stuck. Clean it out, tighten the cap back into place, put the access panel back on, and hit run. Has worked for me at leaste 3 times. Those pesky kid socks every time.
