Water alarm is on. How do i drain. I think I need to hook up a hose in the back of the unit to drain but I don't know the procedure. There are three drains that look ike they would accept a hose, one high on the unit and two low ones. Can you tell me what to do to clear the alarm?

The hose is optional. If you are lucky enough to have a drain nearby, then route the hose downhill from any of the three holes on the back. But it won't pump the water uphill out a window. In that case, you will have to install the ginormous external tank and empty it every day. fun fun

Water is coming in through the entry hose and running straight out the drain hose. No agitate, no spin, just constant water. Happened after I tried to wash three towels & got an imbalance alarm. R


Is the discharge hose higher than the machine? If it is Lower it will never fill. Don't think there is a shut off in the hose to stop the water discharge.

Don't see anywhere to hook up hose to the bucket? So that it will continously drain. Model HDN655E-rb


The drain plug should be on the rear of the unit about 1/2 way up the back of the unit. It has a screw off cap and rubber plug. Keep these & don't lose them. You will need them, whenever you stop using the hose drain. Most folks put them in the water bucket for safe keeping.

The garden hose can not exceed 48" in length and slope down and straight to the floor drain. Drainage relies entirely on gravity.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a hose hooked up in the back to continually drain water but it isn't working. I have to keep emptying the water. How do I get it to work? And if I take out the plug water leaks everywhere.


The problem you're facing is either a clog in the drain hose or a clog in the hose connector's tubing.

The drain hose is an easy one to insect and clean, if necessary. For the hose connector tubing, you need to do the following.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.

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.Reconnect the drain hose, 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 drainage thru the hose.

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


Hope this helped you solve the problem. P;ease let me know. Thanks.

My AMana AP077R portable air conditioner was plugged in but turned off. Alarm went off, checked drain...no water to drain. Unplugged, plugged back in...an hour later, alarm went off again.


Kathy, it sounds as if you are using a hose to drain the water to a floor drain.

If that is the case, do the following after turning the unit OFF & unplugging it:

1. Disconnect the hose from the unit and check the hose for clogs.

2. If none are found in # 1, the clog is in the unit's hose connection and/or internal tubing.

3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) insert the Zip Tie carefully into the hose connection on the unit and push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull it back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you reach the end of the exiting Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

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

I have a lg lhd45elt8 dehumidifier i bought used i want to hook up the hose connection i see on the back a plastic chip that needs to be removed and the hose pipe is just inserted? then connect a drain...


I own this dehumidifier. To connect it to a garden hose for drainage you first need the special connector pipe/adapter that comes with the unit. It's white plastic and about a foot long, It may be stored in the top of the bucket drawer, where it ships from the factory. Your hose connects to the threaded fitting on one end. The other end is inserted into the hole in the back of the unit. You slide it straight in until it mates with a drain connection inside the unit. You can see this black pipe connection if you pull the bucket drawer all the way out and look in the very top right hand corner of the opening of the unit. Once the white tube is fully and correctly inserted you'll find two plastic tabs on the tube near the hose connection. The larger tab points straight up and blocks the tube from being inserted too far. The smaller tab points down and hooks into the slot in the bottom of the round opening to keep it from getting knocked loose. Your dehumidifier should now drain through the hose instead of into the bucket. Of course, be sure your hose is routed across a floor to a drain or sump pump located lower than the unit, since the water flows by gravity.

You gonna have a drain for the reservoir to clean the unit and a drain for the ice bin and then a connection for inlet water. The water valve is the key. Look for it.

Water is leaking into the dishwasher when it was not on. The water is really dirty and fills over time. How do I make it stop? It is not on automatic or on at all.


Hi, The water is dirty, do you think it is water draing back into the d/w from the sink? You need to raise the dishwasher drain hose that hooks up to the sink. Make sure the highest point of the drain hose is over the connection where the drain hose hooks to.
If it was fresh water filling the dishwasher, the water would be clean.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Water not draining, how should the switch be set?


Hi There,

I am not an expert, but I have the same dish washer. The washer motor may not run in reverse. I had the same problem and a couple of the timer switches and the started relay were bad.
Fixed it but two years later it has the same problem. BTW, my unit still has a timer relays, the new once don’t'

Also don't switch on the delime switch, this will hold the cycle until you switch it off again.
Regards,
Thomas
