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.

Why does water leak onto the floor instead of draining into the tank?


The hose connector should be capped or a hose connected and directed to a floor drain.

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.

I attached a hose to the drain hose connector. When I insert it into the drain hole it is blocked by the back of the dehumidifier. What iw the correct way to insert? Can you send a better diagram?


The drain hose connector MUST be attached to the unit, before attaching the garden hose.
First, the connector is attached to the unit. Second, the hose is hand tightened to the connector.
If you haven't been doing it in this order, that's the problem.

We had a hose attached to empty into a drain, but the hose came loose. Now it won't run because it shows the bucket is full.


Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

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

How do you hook it up to a floor drain?


With most portable dehumidifiers use a bucket to catch the condensate. Then the bucket is full the dehumidifier stops, then you need to empty it and replace the bucket to get the dehumidifier to start working again.

To make this unit run continually, the bucket can be modified so a garden hose can be attached and the hose can be feed into a floor drain. To do this look at the bottom of the bucket, there should be a hose connector where you can attach a standard garden hose. You will need to drill out the center of the hose connector with a 1/4" drill bit. Then you can attach the hose to the bucket and the other end into the floor drain.

Permanent drain won't work... we attached hose but it keeps filling up and turning off indicating it its full. the hose is attached correctly but do we need to till the dehumidifier a tad backwards?


The pan itself should be sloped towards the back....ensure that the drain pan is installed correctly and that the hose or outlet fitting is not blocked . It will not do any harm to give it a little extra tilt especially if the floor isn't level
