Question about GE Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

I have a GE 40 pint dehumidifier. It is supposed to train either into the bucket or to a hose. I have the hose attached, but it will not run unless the bucket is in place and the hose does not work> only the bucket fills. How can I fix it so that the hose works and the bucket does not fill? Pleaase reply to mbrodkey@netscape.net. Thank you.

Others have had this problem, and are annoyed by it. One fellow in an Amazon Review fixed it, and here is what he said:
This dehumidifier came with the house I bought 6 months ago. It sucks the water out of the air very well. I had to empty the bucket once a day. I finally figured out how to attach a hose (you have to punch through a rubber barrier with the adapter) and haven't had any problems. The unit is very noisy and I can hear it humming from the 2nd floor. When I move it around a few inches, the noise reduces, but it gets loud again after a while. I might wrap the non-functioning sides with foam to help with the noise.

Not sure what rubber barrier he's referring to, but maybe it will make sense to you- hope so.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

What setting do you have to have it on for the water to come out of hose only


The water collection bucket may have a hose tap in it. But, in your case the hose drain connection is on the side of the unit. You have to remove the cover of the hose connection, before you can connect the garden hose. Here's where it gets a little tricky, because the Owners Manual says to leave the bucket in place. However, the Troubleshooting Guide says to remove the bucket, if water is not draining thru the hose. Which to me, makes sense, because the unit can't recognize that the hose is connected, if the bucket is still installed, because it has a safety switch.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, here is a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

50 pint dehumidifier has drain hose connected but fills up the drain bucket and stops running....


safety switch is turning off the dehumidifier....you need to drain out the bucket more often....or put the drain hose into an actual drain....ive seen some people run a small plastic hose from the dehumidifier to the sump pump hole in their basement.

Haier 30 pint dehumidifier continuous drain problem.


Many just attach the hose at the reservoir; from your description, Haier apparently has a separate location. Check that the point that the hose attaches has an opening (many don't, they expect you to drill it). It should then drain through gravity. Check to make sure that no part of the drain hose is higher than the bottom of the reservoir, otherwise it can't drain. It won't siphon because each time the the tank empties, the suction is broken and the siphoning can't continue.
