Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier

Open Question

I recently bought a GE, Model AHW30LKG1, Serial # AMI22395, dehumidifier. I want to connect it to a hose to run to my sump pump. The carton that my dehumidifier was packed in did not have a nozzle to connect to the back of the unit with two screws to thread the garden hose to. How do I get a nozzle?

SOURCE: 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.

Patti, the problem is not the drain hose (unless it's clogged or exceeds 48" in length). The internal drain tubing to the hose connection is clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the water collection bucket. To unclog the tubing do the following:

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection hole and tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for water flow. It may take 10 to 15 minutes for the water to start flowing, so be patient.

I hop the helps you, Patti and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where do i find the model number for an older model goldstar dehumidifier and where can i buy a hose to connect it directly to the sump pump?


Any garden hose will fit the drain connection on your dehumidifier. However, the hose can not be longer than 5 feet. As the drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain. Connecting it directly to a sump pump is not a good solution. Allowing the hose to drain into the sump pump's water collection tank is your only option.

Hope this helped you.

Hello, I need a dehumidifier of 50pint or more that stop when the humidity level is reach and will restart when is too high. I look for a lot of brand and model and I cannot find one thanks for your...


The fifty pint capacity might be a challenge ... think about this ... 6 + gallon tank @ 7+ pounds per gallon ... 42 pounds of water to drag from the dehumidifier to the drain? Who is going to do that?

All dehumidifiers run at some % of humidity (via Humistat), (like you are asking about) i.e. come on at some % above the setting and go off when the setting is reached. I suggest you find one that has a standard one or two gallon tank that also features a hose connection in the tank. Run the hose from the tank to the floor drain in your basement or a drain near what ever room you are trying to dry out. When you connect the hose --- you will have to put a hole into the fitting on the tank for water to flow. The idea of the tank is that the machine will run on the setting until the tank fills up ... at which time the tank full switch will not allow the machine to run again until you dump the water (and you want to drag a 6+ gallon tank, 42+ pounds, around?) . If there is a hose attached, the tank never fills up.

Some dehumidifiers feature a pump to which will pump the water to a near-by drain. You may be able to rig such a setup yourself using a small pump like a fish pond pump or similar.

You may want to consider using two dehumidifiers (with or without hoses) rather than one BIG machine. I run two machines from a major USA retailer (one in each end of the basement) and they run into the near by sump and the system works fine @ my house.Thanks for your

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

/my dehumidifier has a hose attachment on the back. how does that work?


The hose attachment is used in place of the water collection bucket, to drain the water directly into a floor drain or a sump pump holding tank. A garden hose is connected to the "hose attachment" and run to the floor drain or sump pump holding tank. However, it will not drain UP, only DOWN.

Hope this helped.

50 pint dehumidifier has drain hose connected but fills up the drain bucket and stops running....


safety switch is turning off the dehumidifier....you need to drain out the bucket more often....or put the drain hose into an actual drain....ive seen some people run a small plastic hose from the dehumidifier to the sump pump hole in their basement.

The water fills the tank but does not go out of the hose and drain to the sump pump as designed


Check the hose for clog up as well as your sump pump. Have your hose unclogged and let it run. Check the sump pump if this is running. And if it is, and still no water goes out. Open the sump, and check the impeller for defect. Impeller is the one that turns around to push the water out. If it is defective, you must replace it to make it run.
Once you are done, power it up and start it.
