Unit keeps cycling off and on with the "bucket full" light blinking


It appears as if the water may not be flowing through the hose.
* When you use a hose the unit must be located near the drain. If the hose is to long the water will not flow freely and cause the water to back up in the hose triggering the bucket full.
* If the unit is lower or the hose runs up hill even the slightest incline will cause the water not to flow backing up to the machine
* Hose must remain flat and in a down hill flow to the drain if you are running a longer hose than recommended. If you are have a long distance to run the hose elevate the dehumidifieer by placing it on a stand, milk crate, anything that will hold the unit. Be sure it is large enough and strong enough to support the unit to prevent it from falling. This will help siphon the water from the unit and prevent any water to back up the unit.
* If your using an old hose make sure there are no kinks and water flows freely through the hose. Any kinks or type of pinch in the hose will cause the water to back up

I hope this helps resolve your issue. This is the most common mistake when using a hose.

Water will not drain out hose even though hose is attached. It still just drains into the tank. This is a pain since it is in the basement.


I had the same problem....raised the unit 3 feet off floor, the drain hose is 4feet long... But the secret to getting unit to drain into hose if unit is set to Continous is...... TILT the unit back about 5 degrees with a half inch piece of wood under front wheels and She will drain into hose instead of bucket.... ......goldiejud@netscape.net

Won't drain from hose port


Either the hose is clogged or the hose connection and interior tubing is clogged. When this happens water is diverted to the bucket. Checking the hose is easy to do. If you find no clogs there, then the clog is in the hose connection on the unit and it's interior tubing.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection & 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 hose to the unit, 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 the hose end for water flow. It mat take 10 to 15 minutes for water to start flowing.

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

I hope this information will solve the problem for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Do I have to do something, not mentioned in the manual to get my unit to drain out the hose connection. I know people are stupid, so yes I did open the connection and attached my hose. It has a bit of...


This is usually cased by either a clogged drain hose ro the hose connection and tubing on the unit is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted into the bucket.

First, turn the unit OFF & unplug it.
To unclog the connection and it's interior tubing. Disconnect the hose and using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie appropriately sized Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip into the hose connection and the tubing. Slowly push it in unitl you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work is past this bend, until the Zip Tip bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull it out while rotation (twisting) it. This should breakup any clogs. As you reach the tip of the inserted Zip Tie, be prepared as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose to the connection, plug the unit back in, turn it On and lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. Monitor the hose periodically for water flow.

Be sure the hose slopes down and away from the unit and is not longer than 5 feet. As drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

NOTE: You may substitute something similar to a plastic Zip Tie. But, no wire coat hangers.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hooked up garden hose but tank still fills with water and shuts down when full. Hose is not plugged


George, the hose may not be plugged, but the hose connector tubing in the unit is. To solve the problem, do the following.

Turn the unit OFF and Unplug it.

Disconnect the hose from the unit. 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 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 for 60 minutes or more and monitor the drain hose. The drain hose should be no longer than 5 feet and must slope downward, with out any bends or kinks.

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. Please let me know. Thanks.

Why doesn't dehumidifier drain through hose? Even with the hose connected, the water still drips into the bucket and shuts off.

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 have the hose hooked up to the back but it keeps filling the tank and shuts off when it's full ,how do you just use the hose to drain


I believe you have to put a plug to drain that drains into the tank ,then it can only drain out the hose.
