Dehumidifier leakage i found out that that drainage connection is leaking into the bucket, causing it to shut off when full. the gasket was new and tight. i tried removing it going without it and tightening until i was sure i was gonna pop the threads. still leaks slightly, not filling the bucket as quickly. gonna try some pipe tape on the threads today.

I was under the impression that the drain hose connected to the bucket with a screw on connection such as with a garden type hose.

Dehumidifier seems to be running fine, but water leaking on floor even with minimal water accumulated in bucket?


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt

Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

GE dehumidifier light says bucket is full but it isn't


Try feeling both sides of the outside of the bucket and make sure the bucket is flush with the dehumidifier. If one side is sticking out more than the other it may notbe engaged correctly which will cause a full bucket notification. If everything checks out ok there try takng the bucket out and push in on the button that the lever from the bucket engages on at the dehumidifier. If the light turns off after you push on the red button that means the bucket is not engaging correctly. If the red light stays on and it doesnt make a difference he button sensor may be defective. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Leak, non sensing


I have found this issue to be pretty common on alot of LG dehumidifiers. Try and reseat the bucket so the left and right sides where the bucket meets the dehumidifier are both flush with the dehumidifier. The issue usually is you will notice that the left side sticks out a little farther than the right side. If this is the case that means the bucket s not fully engaged with the sensor and it will keep running even when the bucket is full. If you reseat the bucket and both sides are not even try reseating it again until both sides are flush. Once they are flush let t run and keep an eye on it the first time running it like this. You should notice the full bucket light when the bucket is full now. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

The bucket of my Dehumidifier is filling up with water.


That is what it is designed to do. Most dehumidifiers come with a hose connection on the bucket. To use this hose connection there is a knock-out inside the connection where the hose attaches that must be removed. The alternative is to empty the bucket when it gets full. Most Dehumidifiers are set up with a switch that will shut it down when the bucket gets near to full.

Auto shut off


Try re-seating the bucket. I have found some LG models that if not seated all of the way will sometimes keep running and think the bucket is not full even when it is. On the models that I have seen do it the problem is usually the left side of the bucket not engaging all of the way. When you reseat the bucket, feel where the bucket meets the dehumidifier on each side and make sure they are even. If one feels like it is sticking out further than the other and you cannot push it in any more pull the bucket out and try and reseat it again until both sides are flush with the dehumidifier. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Dehumidifier leakage


My dehumidifier leaked after about one year of perfect operation. I unscrewed the face plate exposing the cooling grill and found out that debris was blocking the drainage hole that fed into the water bucket. The debris came from zip ties used to bunch some wires together. Apparently they got brittle (from the constant cooling and warming?), fell apart and managed to make it's way to the drainage hole. Cleared it out and worked fine again.
