Question about Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Gold dehumidifier with the hose set up for direct water release into a sink drain. I assumed once you hooked up the manufacturer hose provided it would be a direct drain process and water would not collect in the normal catch basin. Is there a switch or someting to make the water come out of the hose instead of going into the catch basin which fill up quickly?

I have a similar Whirlpool dehumidifier and a similar problem. Have you tried setting it to continuous mode? My understanding was that it would only divert the drainage to a side hose when in the continuous mode.

Once you punch a hole in the receptacle, what type of screw cap would fit.


Most of the hose/drain connections i have seen on these have a std gardenhose fitting so you can use a std garden hose to direct the water over to drain, caps for garden hoses are easyly available from any garden supply store , but i do caution you on your thought process of hooking up a hose makes this a maintence free option, it does not as hose and filters still need constant cleaning , especally in high humidity seasons

How do I connect my dehumidifier with a hose directly to a drain


Are you much of a handyman? Most folks set their dehumidifier on a counter or elevated and run the exhaust tubing right into a sink or toilet. You could collect the water to flush a toilet or water the grass if you are handy. I've never seen anyone connect directly to a drain though.

There was a build-up of a snotty white substance in the hose which blocked it from draining. Any idea what this substance could be?


Hi,
That is an Algae that will grow in damp places... like the dehumidifier hose...
No major problem... just clean the hose with fresh water or replace the hose...

Had the same problem. Make sure you tighten the house a little with pliers. Also, make sure the dehumidifier is up a lot higher than where you're draining it into. Mine drains into a utility sink. But I have the dehumidifier propped up onto a dresser. I cut a small piece of hose to run into the sink. Seems to be working now.

It will take 5 min or so to establish a water flow, so be patient after you hook everything up. Good luck.

Dehumidifier emptys in the floor.


Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact.  Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine.  If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself.  It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger.  The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced.  (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)
