Hi,

Might it be that the unit simply needs a full thorough cleaning including the tiny spaces between fins? Dust can gather and block air passage on many of the components of a dehumidifier not only on the filter. in some extreme cases, the unit could be undercharged (insufficient) coolant. A service shop engaged in the business of cleaning and repairing air conditioners should also be able to work on your unit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Goldstar dehumidifier is still draining water, but is forming snow/ice out the top of it. I've had a couple of years and has worked beautifully. Any suggestions?


Your unit has a sealed system leak. The sealed system is warrantied for five years. Find your receipt and call an authorized LG dealer to initiate an exchange.

Why did my dehumidifier start draining into the bucket when I put the drain hoze? Previous to putting on the hoze it was draing out the back.


Check for crub which may be blocking the drain hose. Blow the hose out by connecting it to your outside garden hose and turning on the water full force. Then reattach it to your dehumidifier.

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

Hi,

Two possibilities:
1. Continuous running and there is water coming out of the unit to the floor drain; the unit is just doing its job. It is probably just that there is that much humidity in the room;
2. the sensors are faulty or were bypassed during the repair - the sensor would be testing the water coming out, if there is water, the unit continues to work, if none, then it shuts off. Most would also have an overfill float switch, again which could be bypassed, that likewise control whether the unit will continue to run or stop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
