Goldstar Dehumdifier - draining through hose not working

I have a hose attached to the drain on the dehumdifier with a hose clamp (so it wont fall off) and have made sure to elevate the unit higher than the drain itself with proper pitch on the garden hose.
The bucket still fills up however. What could be causing this and what should I do next?

    The connection where the hose meets the internal connection is leaking, but water also comes through the hose. I have tried everything I can think of but am unable to stop the leak.

Check the connection where you attached the hose. It may be plugged or covered by a plastic film from when it was molded.

Hi- I have a Kenmore dehumdifier that has stopped filling up with water. It sounds like it is working but no water is in the tank. Any ideas?


A dehumidifier works with heat, so you should see if it is getting warm or not. Although the fan is working (sound you hear) it might not be working other than the fan. If you have a clamp on amp meter you could see how many amps it is drawing which is usually quite high.

Where can I get hose ,hose attachments for my Goldstar dehumidifier? Can not locate my manual or attachments.


Fortunately, it doesn't require a special hose, as a standard Garden Hose Connection is on the left side of the water collection bucket. You may have to carefully drill a 1/4 " hole in the center of the connection, once you unscrew the drain cap. The hose should be no longer than 5' , as the drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

When attaching the the hose, be sure that the female hose connection has a washer in it or it will leak. Hand tighten the hose connection firmly, being careful not to crack the plastic hose connection on the tank. Also, be sure that the float valve in the tank is in the DOWN. position or the unit will not run.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

How do i hook up plastic attachment so i am able to run a hose to a drain for continual usuage DH404E


Most brands have a fitting molded into the drain pan that will let you attach a garden hose to the tank. You may have to drill a hole in the fitting to allow the water to drain through.

Tank fills up but connected to hose FDL70S1


I had the same problem. It seems that you need to add another hose washer to the drain hose that connects to the dehumdifier. I wasn't able to tighten it enough by hand to keep it from leaking. BE CAREFUL ! ! The plastic connector in the dehumdifier is just that PLASTIC so don't try to overtighten with a pliers, etc... I still get a minimal amount of water in the bucket but only have to dump every 4-6 weeks, if even that.

Dehumdifier won't drain


You just need to get the water flowing and start the siphoning process by taking out the water bucket while it's full of water and raising it up high enough to start the water flowing. Once the water starts flowing, you can put the bucket back and the water will keep flowing (by capillary action). If the bucket empties completely, you may have to do it again periodically to get the water flowing again.

Connecting a drain hose


Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.

I have the same problem. I believe it is because it has a refrigerent leak. When there is little refrigerent, the begining of the coil will freeze up. I would really suggest calling the manufacturer. It is defintely something to do with this specific model
