Question about LG LD65EL Dehumidifier

3 Answers

LG Dehumidfier did you ever figure out how to get the water to drain into the hose instead of the bucket - we bought a LG LHD45EL a week ago. Ipushed through the memberane and pushed onto hose in back (no way to tighten or screw on that I see) feel tight, but water still goes onto bucket - I have tried duct tape - must be another answer - nothing I saw in manual or LG site to help. Did you resolve the issue with yours? Thanks Chris

When you install the drain tube, be sure that it is placed into the drain hole in the dehumidifier. You then will be able to "latch" the tube at the hose end by lowering onto the outer hole opening. This maintains a tight connection and the water will drain properly.

Chris, easy fix my friend.
The plastic hose must be directed into the flow tube. Take out the bucket, push the plastic drain hose onto the drain flow tube that can be seen on the right side. As long as these pieces stay together it will drain into the hose instead of the bucket. Make sure unit is level or tilted back slightly. Sam

Does not shut off and overflows


In most cases this problem is caused by the water collection bucket not being installed properly. It may not have been pushed in far enough to allow the full switch to activate when needed. Be sure that each time you remove the bucket to empty it and then reinstall it, that the lift handle of the bucket is all the way in down position and that the bucket is fitting squarely into the holder from top to bottom.

Note: Your specific model has been discontinued by LG. However, some parts are still available if needed.

If you run your dehumidifier constantly and don't want to make a repair to it. You may want to consider using a drain hose, rather than the water collection bucket. This would require a floor drain close to the unit, though.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have a lg lhd45elt8 dehumidifier i bought used i want to hook up the hose connection i see on the back a plastic chip that needs to be removed and the hose pipe is just inserted? then connect a drain...


I own this dehumidifier. To connect it to a garden hose for drainage you first need the special connector pipe/adapter that comes with the unit. It's white plastic and about a foot long, It may be stored in the top of the bucket drawer, where it ships from the factory. Your hose connects to the threaded fitting on one end. The other end is inserted into the hole in the back of the unit. You slide it straight in until it mates with a drain connection inside the unit. You can see this black pipe connection if you pull the bucket drawer all the way out and look in the very top right hand corner of the opening of the unit. Once the white tube is fully and correctly inserted you'll find two plastic tabs on the tube near the hose connection. The larger tab points straight up and blocks the tube from being inserted too far. The smaller tab points down and hooks into the slot in the bottom of the round opening to keep it from getting knocked loose. Your dehumidifier should now drain through the hose instead of into the bucket. Of course, be sure your hose is routed across a floor to a drain or sump pump located lower than the unit, since the water flows by gravity.

I have LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier this humidifier and it's not collecting any/very little water, even after we had 1-week of rain and seepage in teh room it's being used it. Is there some type of filter/part...


Cleaning the air intake filter certainly won't hurt. Also, check the humidity setting. You may have it set to low. In addition, it wouldn't hurt to check the drain tube or drain hole (whichever one your unit has) that's just above the bucket. You'll see it once you remove the bucket. It may be clogged and is not allowing the water to drain properly. Using a 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) that will comfortably fit into the hole ... Carefully and gently run it as far as you can into the drain hole or tube. The tricky part is when you reach the bend in the tube. So, tread carefully. Once you have it inserted as far possible, as you rotate the Zip Tie, slowly pull it out. Rotating it, will loosen any debris. Be prepared for water to follow.

If none of the above solves the problem, the compressor in the dehumidifier may be low on refrigerant gas and will need to be recharged.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Is it possible to attach a hose to drain the water continuously without my having to empty the bucket every day? If so where and how do I do that? Thank you.


The easiest way is to put a hole in the bucket( by using a a hole saw) and attach a pvc fitting(male adapter with a rubber washer and nut) and hook a hose or pvc pipe that will drain the unit of its water. Good Luck

Bucket fills up instead of water flowing out hose


There must be a blockage in the hose causing the water to back up and flow into the bucket. Try pushing a flexble peice of wire through the hose to unblock it.

Push through the membrane with the drain connector. The membrane has a circular cut almost all the way through it, and pushing at it with the drain connector will pop out the little hole. I've done it with four LG units.
