Question about Danby Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I require the attachment that allows you to connect my dehumidifier to a hose, so that we can go away for a little while and not have to worry about emptying the resevoir. The appliance may well have come equipped with such a device but we have been unable to find one and our local Home Depot, from where we aquired the machine, is sold out of dehumidifiers and has no spare parts of any kind.

All I wanted was to purchase the attachment for my dehumidifier.  I did not want to sign up for a plan.  Please answer the question.  Surely Danby sells this part, just tell me where to find it.

How do I get water to come out the hose instead of the bucket?


a special adaptor is required from the mfg to allow this it bypasses the internal passageway to internal bucket and has a hose connection to what a normal garden style hose can be connected and directed over to a floor drain or pump pit
this method still requires normal maintence and cleaning thought as it can stop up too

I need a part(s) which allows the water from the dehumidifier to drain into a hose which goes to a basement drain. What are the names of the parts and where can I order them?


Not knowing which brand and model number dehumidifier you have, makes telling you what parts you need difficult at best. Most dehumidifiers only require a garden hose section, no longer than 5 feet, that connects to rear of the unit. The connection will be a threaded male connection. It is plastic, so don't over tighten it and crack it. It will have a screw off cap, which must be removed to connect the hose.

Keep in mind, most dehumidifiers rely solely on gravity to drain the water thru a hose. So, the hose should slope down from the unit and straight over to the floor drain.

If the above didn't help you, get back to me with the brand and model number of your dehumidifier.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

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 make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it


Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

The water won't run continuously out, instead the tank fill up. I have it set up to run continuous but the tank keeps filling up. I have the Westpointe dehumidifier.


Some dehumidifiers don't require that the bucket be in place, when a drain hose is attached to the unit. I'm not sure that's the case with yours, because I'm unfamiliar with the Westpointe brand. You should also check the drain connection that the hose is connected to. It may be clogged, which forces the water into the bucket instead of draining through the hose. If you have something flexible like a long plastic Zip Tie, that can easily be run into the hose connection and slowly pulled back out, while rotating it should loosen any clogs. Be prepared for water to follow. Do not use a wire coat hanger to do this and be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting it.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

Can a hose be attached to the LG 45 dehumidifier to allow to drain as it fills?


Yes a hose can be connected to this unit.

1. Remove the drain-hole cover from the back of the unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded hose connector.
3. Push the hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on the back of the unit

This is explained on the manual on page 12. Hope this helps

Where to hook up drain hose


On the bucket there should be a cap. If you remove it your hose can attach to it. Run the hose top a drain. If possible, raise the dehumidifier so the water drains properly. From time to time, pour a little bit of bleach into the hose to keep mold away.

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.

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.

When hose is attached, bucket fills up


yes: hose allowed the bucket to be bypassed yes: bucket was there only for the switch to power can you pass a finger through the hole where the hose connected? probably not, right? most of these buckets have a knockout area inside the hose connection. Try prying it out or even drilling it out if required. remember that once you remove hose, you must purchase a plug hose end connector to continue bucket only useage.
