Here is a link to the part you need to hook up a garden hose to the unit. Or if you would be interested in trading me the float inside of the water bin, I could send you my exact hose that came with my dehumidifer. Let me know at . I do not have a place to drain mine out and the piece of plastic on the float that shows when the bucket is full is broke.

I have the same model and bought a clear plastic hose at Home Depot, and drain it into a nearby bathtub. I don't have the size handy but just measure the diameter of the hose fitting, and make sure the hose has an inside diameter to match. Some stores sell hose by the foot; I bought a prepackaged roll.

The dehumidifier runs just fine with the exception of water filling up in the bucket. I want the water to drain continuously into a drain. How do i fix this?

well 1st not all machines are made to be a continuous drain type , if so your machine would have come with instructions on how to convert it over for this function , aside from that a little low tech approach to this (not too great looking though) is to drill /melt a hole into drain bucket just big enough to allow a hose bulk head fitting to be screwed into it (hardware store item) and use a simple garden hose for the drain connection

I need a danby hose connection drain plug

From what I understand it has a hose connection for the drain. If you go to one of the big box stores they sell caps that will fit the end of a garden hose or sprinkler hose and close it off.

I do not have the adaptor for my maytag dehumidifier model #M7DH45B2A to attach the garden hose for continuous drainage. Where can I get one, or could you give me the specifications so I can go to the...

The drain hose connecter, which accepts a garden hose type coupling is an intricate part of the unit. It is not removable. If yours broke OFF, that's a different story. However, that Part # 5214A20027A Drain Hose Connect is no longer available. As are many other parts for Maytag Dehumidifiers, that were manufactured by the now defunct, Fedders.

Unfortunately, I do think you'll be able to run out to the local hardware store and get parts to fabricate one. As the lion's share of the part is internal.

I'm sorry I don't better news for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The water doesn't drain through the site to which I attached the hose. Instead it drains through a quarter inch hole (which appears to be a manufaactured hole, not a crack or break)to the right of...

It sounds like the unit should have came with a plug for the hole. You can probably obtain a plug from a home improvement or hardware store or even improvise one yourself. Also, make sure the unit is pitched so that the water actually runs towards the hose.

Where does the drain hose attach to the goldstar dh504e dehumidifier?

First look at the top of the collection bucket - do you have a garden hose adapter (they can generally stored in a spot on top of the bucket cover. If so you can use a garden hose. If not, you can buy a length of plastic or vinyl tune at a hardware store.
looking from the back - look at left side and you'll see a knock-out. punch that out and look inside to see the hose connection (generally black plastic)
take out the bucket, and look at the right side at the bottom of the "roof" of the area here the bucket goes. there is a small tube pointing toward the back of the unit - right at the knock-out

for my machine, I went to home depot and bought a 20 foot length of the right diameter vinyl hose and it drains into a floor drain - I never have to touch the unit expect to clean the filter

Danby ddr7009ree - continuous drain won't work

I have the same Danby unit and the same problem. When you take out the water bucket look inside and find the two holes where the water drips into the bucket. These holes are approximately 5/16" and 3/8" diameter. These holes need to be plugged. Your local hardware store has an assortment of specialized parts boxes. Find the box that contains "corks" of various sizes. They sell for about 20¢ apiece. I bought 5 within that size catagory and two of them worked! Problem solved.

I have a Kenmore 54501 dehumidifier


somewhere there is a "knockout" or "plug" or something similar you have to remove or replace it to get it to drain through the hose, there should be some documentation in the owners manual about it, try troubleshooting in the back of the manual. If not look directly into the hose outlet and see if theres a plastic plug there, if there is use a screwdriver or something similar to GENTLY remove the plug, you may have to just study the machine when its running to get a better idea of how the water drains, maybe the machine came with something like it in one of the plastic bags the accessories came in.

good luck

Problem with draining water through hose

I bought one of the FDL70S1 Frigidaire dehumidifiers today for my shop, and found that the $5 hose I bought to drain it through the floor wouldn't tighten down completely, allowing the hose to twist and wobble, a sure indication that it was not water tight. Simply adding a second washer, as described in another answer here, allowed me to tighten the hose sufficiently to produce a tight fit with no play between the hose and the dehumidifier. It hasn't leaked. I know it is a threads-per-inch issue, and I am stumped as to why Frigidaire would supply these units with a different thread pitch than the standard GHT (garden hose thread) 3/4" - 11.5 tpi. The threads on the unit appear to be 3/4 NPS - 14 tpi. Go figure!

My hose connection is leaking water

Jonathan, first unscrew the hose connection. Now look into the end of the hose for a rubber seal. The color of the seal may be black or green or red or yellow or some other color. Does this seal exist at all? I once had purchased a hose and found out the seal had fallen out sometime before I got it home. If the seal is there, remove it and get another seal. They are inexpensive, but usually must be purchased in quantities of 10 or more.

Drain problem

I have the same problem and after talking (mostly waiting) with Fedders repair, I have been told how to solve the problem. Plug up the drain hole on the right side (the one not connected to the drain hose). The drain hole extends down about 5mm, outside measures 10mm and interior measures 7mm. They do come with a drain hold cover. Not a replaceable part with a number. Off to the hardware store.
