You may be able to find a male to male pipe thread brass or copper or even reg. galvinised pipe or pcpvc or pvc anything that will fit in the hole ... or if the outlet is a male find a female union you can go to the hardware and ask for the pex pipe fittings, thats prob. the first place to look they have many sized pex fittings and next what you would then do is find a flexable vinal tube larger than the outlet threads and rap the threads with teflon tape a few times. then next use a hose clamp slide the larger tube over the threads and tighten the hose clamp and check for leaks jason

How do i make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it


Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

I don't know where the pipe connects to the dehumidifier, the threaded pipe which will bypass the collection bucket. I inherited the unit (sans manual) from my sailor son who used it in his boat.


Jeremy, you will either find it on the back of the unit. It will have a screw off plastic cap on the connection. OR when you remove the water bucket, you will see it inside that cavity, that the bucket is insert into. In both cases, it will look like a garden hose connection. The hose you attach, should not be longer than 5 feet. It relies entirely on gravity to drain.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

How is the external tube for draining outside connected to the dehumidifier. Does the tube insert into the right angle nipple, then the threded end conected to a drain hose?


No. The tube inserts straight into the drain hole. Follow the 4 sets below.

1. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
2. Remove the drain-hole cover.
3. Push hose connector tightly into the drain-hole on Rear Grille.
4. Press the hose down and make sure the "Arrow" on the tab is pointing upward.

NOTE:
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting. Do not over tighten the hose when
connecting it to the hose connector, use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the plastic threads. Be sure the hose lays flat and has no kinks, as it will not drain properly.

Do I need an attachment to connect hose to my new dehumidifier?


it should be generic. you just need a part with the same thread pattern. you could fix that a lot of different ways. as long as it screws in your ok. make sure you put some teflon tape on it to prevent it from dripping

To connect a drain pipe


Find where the leak is coming from. Is it coming from the connection where the tube goes into the dehumidifier or where the garden hose screws on? If it is where the garden hose screws on make sure it is screwed on all the way. If it is you may just need to replace the rubber washer in the garden hose.

I purchased a LG Dehumidifier MODEL LHD45EL and I followed instructions to attach a hose to it for the drain. I removed the drain hole cover and I don't see a drain hole connector or a hole to install it...


Remove the drain bucket. on the top there are two pieces that can be removed just by taking them out. they are just laying in there. 1 is the brush the other is the "drain tube insert" it is a plastic tube and has a threaded fitting on one end. take your garden hose with a female connector on one end just like you were going to install on your spicket outside of your house and connect it to the threaded end of the "drain tube insert" make sure you knockout the round plastic drain plug cover hole located in the back of the unit (it is behind where your power cord was stored) it has three tabs to break. remove drain bucket. take the drain tube with hose attatched and insert it into the drain plug hole in the back and attach it onto the drain outlet (the drain outlet is inside the drain bucket side at the top it looks like an elbow fitting) push the tube so that the flap with the arrow is flush with the back. once you get the "drain tube insert" almost all the way flush with the back -->if you look inside the drain bucket side you will see where it fits over the drain outlet

Connected Drain Hose - Is not draining, what gives?


Usually all you have to do is to remove any cap on the outlet fitting, attach the hose, & make sure it has a downhill run to the drain or well. Visual inspection should be enough to guarantee no obstructions exist.
