My whirlpool dehumidifier has an attached hose in the outlet so we do not have to dump the bucket. It is now refusing to push water through the hose. The hose is not plugged and I took the assembly apart...


You've done all the right things, except you couldn't get down in the hose connect tube far enough.

Use an 18" plastic Zip Tie, that will fit into the opening. Insert it until you reach a bend in the tubing. You need to gingerly work it past this bend and continue to push it in, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Slowly pull the Zip Tie out as you rotate (twist) it. This will break up the clog. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie coming back out, be prepared for some water to follow.
CAUTION: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS UNLESS THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH IS OFF AND THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

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

Have hose hooked up but it does not drain. Compartment fills with water and needs dumped manually. Want the hose to work so twice-a-day dumping in basement not needed. Thanks!


You connected a hose to the hose outlet on the catch tank ... right? The tank will not drain even though there are no kinks in the hose and the end is lower than the tank, right? Did you put a hole in the tank before you attached the hose? I will bet not ... and I will not laff at you ... I did the same.

Put a hole in the tank (where the hose attaches), reattach the hose and all will be well.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com :-)

Dehumidifier


As for the drain most have a plastic pan and this is sometimes the type that has to be removed and dumped or a hose has to be attached and the hole it attaches to has to be cut out for self draining.
If the threads are fouled up all I can suggest is a lot of Teflon tape or pipe dope or cut out and replace the fitting with something that will correct the problem.

If this helps please rate me as high as you can and thank ytouu for using fixya.
