    Same problem, plus ours leaks.

    I have a new 50 pint Frigidaire dehumidifier which will not drain
    through the connected hose. The hose is a high quality camper
    style, carefully connected and tightened. The machine empties
    completely into the reservoir, however.

I lost my hose connector. Now I go directly to the garden hose or tubing about the same size. With the metal end cut off the garden house it fits snuggly about the access tube.

First, is the dehumidifier high enough so that the hose isn't 'backing up'? Otherwise, attach a small radiator hose clamp to hold it on.

I attached a hose to the drain hose connector. When I insert it into the drain hole it is blocked by the back of the dehumidifier. What iw the correct way to insert? Can you send a better diagram?


The drain hose connector MUST be attached to the unit, before attaching the garden hose.
First, the connector is attached to the unit. Second, the hose is hand tightened to the connector.
If you haven't been doing it in this order, that's the problem.

Where does the drain hose attach to the goldstar dh504e dehumidifier?


First look at the top of the collection bucket - do you have a garden hose adapter (they can generally stored in a spot on top of the bucket cover. If so you can use a garden hose. If not, you can buy a length of plastic or vinyl tune at a hardware store.
looking from the back - look at left side and you'll see a knock-out. punch that out and look inside to see the hose connection (generally black plastic)
or
take out the bucket, and look at the right side at the bottom of the "roof" of the area here the bucket goes. there is a small tube pointing toward the back of the unit - right at the knock-out

for my machine, I went to home depot and bought a 20 foot length of the right diameter vinyl hose and it drains into a floor drain - I never have to touch the unit expect to clean the filter

Can a hose be attached to the LG 45 dehumidifier to allow to drain as it fills?


Yes a hose can be connected to this unit.

1. Remove the drain-hole cover from the back of the unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded hose connector.
3. Push the hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on the back of the unit

This is explained on the manual on page 12. Hope this helps

I need hose connection


Store bought products like these are extremely hard to get parts. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer, but don't expect much assistance from them.

Uggg, mine did not come with the drain hose. Any ideas?


I have the same model and bought a clear plastic hose at Home Depot, and drain it into a nearby bathtub. I don't have the size handy but just measure the diameter of the hose fitting, and make sure the hose has an inside diameter to match. Some stores sell hose by the foot; I bought a prepackaged roll.

LG Dehumidifier overflows when attachment tube/hose attached


  • After 1 year of wondering why the LG instruction manual said no more than shove the white hose connector piece into the rear of the unit until secure, and relying on 'hit or miss' that the drain hose would actually work, (rather than filling up the bucket), I have finally found the solution. Ironically, it came while I was on my knees getting serial number from behind the bucket before they would try to help me by phone. There I saw it! The black interior drain piece inside the unit (top right when you remove the bucket) that the white house connector must be secured over. (Nothing in the manual ever told me to look for this.) As for securing the unit in the back--under the big vertical flap (which must point up and remain outside the unit), there is a smaller flap or triangular piece. They say that should be inside the unit, which it doesn't seem to go, because it is parallel to the large vertical flap), but if you push hard enough it does click onto the unit, while allowing the large while flap to remain outside (with the arrow pointing up), making the entire piece secure. Check once more to see if the white hose connector piece is secured over the interior drain piece (a black plastic elbow piece, on the top inside right where you remove the bucket, as I've said), and you'll be good to go! LG should be ashamed of their manual writing on this and the time I wasted getting my two units to work. However, at least these units are not fatally flawed as I was beginning to think.

Push through the membrane with the drain connector. The membrane has a circular cut almost all the way through it, and pushing at it with the drain connector will pop out the little hole. I've done it with four LG units.

Lost suction to drain into hose connector


I've had a similar problem and I was told by Whirlpool that the hose has to run down along the side of the dehumidifier and not straight out. I moved it and things improved; then I moved it again and it got worse. So maybe you moved the hose while cleaning the vent, and moving the position around will help?
