SOURCE: I hooked up a hose

Hi, check to make sure the drain hole connection on the Dehumidifer's reservoir, that you have the hose hooked to, isn't plugged.

Also, you might want to see if the hose connection on the reservoir, still has the "knock out plug" still in place. Look at the hose connection on the reservoir, and if you can't see through it, or put a screwdriver through it, you need to punch it out the middle with a screwdriver. Open up the hole as much as you can so it will drain into and through your hose.

Check your hose also, as it might be plugged, disconnect it and blow through one end to make sure the water can flow through it.

Those are the only three things that could be preventing it from draining out the reservoir, through the hose connection, and through the hose to your drain

Take care

SOURCE: we have a zenith dehumidifier

I've had the same issue with mine. I am a 12 year refrigeration tech. I checked the float switch which would normally cause that indication light. However manually pushing the switch and then checking it with an electric meter that was not the case. I think that is instead, an error code set by the manufacturer to assist the service tech when or if this failure occurs during the warrenty period. I also checked the next possible failure in the sequence of opperation which would be the compressor overload relay. That is sometimes why, as some people have posted, that after when unplugging the unit, it operates for a short time then again fails. In my case that was the failure. If that would have not been it than I would have tried the compressor start relay. I purchased the overload relay from my local HVAC/plumbing supply for around 7$. The control can easily be replaced by any handy homeowner. Also, as a service tech, 7$ and two wire nuts is better than a 145+$ service call.

I'm just looking for a owners manual for a Whirlpool Dehumidifier model AD50USL3 to see if there is anyway to connect a hose to run to a drain instead of having to empty the water collection chamber.


If your looking at the front panel of the unit look on the left side of the bucket there is a cover for the optional hose attachment.

I have a GE dehumidifier that i hooked a garden hose to for direct drain. it will work okay for awhile then will only drain into the drain bucket. is there something i can do to ensure that it will drain...


This seems to be a fairly frequent complaint on these GE dehumidifiers, and none of the solutions I've read here or anywhere else have fixed mine. My hose is clear, straight downhill, tight to the nipple with a good gasket, no plugs visible in the nipple, but has always filled the bucket rather than drained through the hose (and it's always bone dry). After two years of this and emptying the bucket, I'm about ready to disassemble it to see if I can fix it but with all of the other unresolved complaints I've seen GE should step up to the plate and post a solution.

How to install a new water pump on a big Green machine?


I have replaced this pump before, and had the pump "seize" again. I hooked the output of the bissel to a siphon pump to pull a vacuum while i had the input hose (with the little filter) submerged in a bucket of water. After i got the pump started, I submerged both the inlet and outlet hoses (after the trigger handle) into a bucket of warm water and turned the spray switch on to circulate clear water through the whole deal
