Is there an internal storage tank for that unit. It is probably the drain tube for condensate. Put it into a bucket, run it, and see it water accumulates. If so, that's what it is, and must be put into a bucket, that then must be emptied frequently.

Bucket removal is extremely difficult. What should I do?


There's usually a piece or tubing that hangs down into the tank and you need to pull your tank past this when removing it to drain your dehumidifier. Are you lifting from the top or bottom? Try the opposite of what you are doing. Sorry I don't know your model specifically, but often there's an outlet or cap at the bottom of the tank that can have a plastic piece of aquarium type tubing hooked to it. This way if you can elevate the whole dehumidifier, say on a counter, the water can just drain into a sink or if you're a real conserver into a storage tank to use to flush your toilet or water your grass.

What sixe diameter tube do I use to hook up to empty dehumidifier


Hello Friend, that's a great question!

In order to better assist you I would need your model number please. The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located behind the bucket on your dehumidifier. With this information I can provide you the correct part number. Thank you! - Z

How do I fix leaking dehumidifier?


units that leak some times are a total loss but not allways , sometimes its just not being used on level surface (water seeks level allways) , there are lots of ports inside that need to be kept clean for all the units water to drain out , look inside with a flashlight to see if any buildup is obvious that might be cleaned off ? if not a last effort is to remove cover to see 1st hand what cause is(remove power plug 1st) , rust /mold/dust are all common things to find inside that affect units operation

My GE basement dehumidifier is overheating. The bucket still collects water and the fan works, but the unit is putting out alot of heat. My dad is visiting and has taken the whole thing apart. Any...


Yes, the first suggestion is I hope your dad can get it back together without any parts left over (LOL). Over heating is generally caused by an clogged or dirty air intake filter. Simply removing it and vacuuming it or if it's really dirty, washing it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid will clean it. Rinse it thoroughly, shake off excess water and allow to dry completely. Never operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so, can damage the unit.

Getting back to the heat for a moment and where you're using your dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers do generate heat, it's not abnormal. Operating it in a basement can cause it to over heat. This happens because the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level. Dehumidifiers struggle in temperatures below 65 degrees F (unless you have a Low temp unit, designed for basement applications). Raising the unit up off the floor, on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that an handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water, will generally resolve the problem.
Actually, a basement application , higher is better.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I noticed today our Goldstar dehumidifier was running, but the back was all frosted up. What does that mean?


That's an indication, that the filter needs to be removed and cleaned.
Turn the unit OFF & unplug it before removing the filter. You can vacuum the filter or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter installed.

If the coils continue to frost, but not defrost, they also should be cleaned.

I need to replace the part of my Maytag dehumidifier (Model # M7DH45B2A AR) that triggers the motor to work - it sits across the back or middle of the right hand bucket and has a sort of paddle on it I...


Here's a link to where you can find the "doohickey" your looking for. It's really called an activation switch. There's also an exploded view of the parts for your model. Also, if you can't find it for Maytag, try Fedders. They make the same unit and actually made the one you have with the Maytag brand name on it. The model numbers will be almost identical. Juts drop the 'M' off the front.

Hope this helps with the part and the repair.

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.

Hi, I have an LG dehumidifier, model number LHD650EBL. I have a hose attached and inserted directly into a drain in my basement, bypassing the water tray. Problem is, my dehumidifier is saying...


Try to see if operating the float lever by hand can make it turn off the 'bucket full' message. Maybe use a rubber band or tape to keep it in the on position vs. the 'bucket full' off position.

Check to see if the bucket has to be inserted for the unit to operate, and if the bucket has a nozzle to hook a hose up to at the bottom. I have a dehumidifier of a different brand that has this feature that works with the bucket in, but with the drain nozzle on the bucket connected to a plastic tube that leads to a drain for continuous operation without having to empty the bucket.

How is your hose attached to the unit if it isn't attached to the bucket?

Good luck on this repair.
