Make sure that you have water bucket and drain hose properly connected.
You may need to replace the sensor.

The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come...

Any automatic pumps operate off a swith that is turned on when the water rises. They normally have some type of ball lift, that will raise the switch when water is high and then drops with the water and shuts the pumps off. It sounds like yours is stuck and not activating the pump.

I'm just looking for a owners manual for a Whirlpool Dehumidifier model AD50USL3 to see if there is anyway to connect a hose to run to a drain instead of having to empty the water collection chamber.

If your looking at the front panel of the unit look on the left side of the bucket there is a cover for the optional hose attachment.

We have a zenith dehumidifier model ZD300 & the bucket full light keeps flashing. the percentage number wont go higher than 1%. we have turned it off/on & unplugged it. When we do this it will...

I've had the same issue with mine. I am a 12 year refrigeration tech. I checked the float switch which would normally cause that indication light. However manually pushing the switch and then checking it with an electric meter that was not the case. I think that is instead, an error code set by the manufacturer to assist the service tech when or if this failure occurs during the warrenty period. I also checked the next possible failure in the sequence of opperation which would be the compressor overload relay. That is sometimes why, as some people have posted, that after when unplugging the unit, it operates for a short time then again fails. In my case that was the failure. If that would have not been it than I would have tried the compressor start relay. I purchased the overload relay from my local HVAC/plumbing supply for around 7$. The control can easily be replaced by any handy homeowner. Also, as a service tech, 7$ and two wire nuts is better than a 145+$ service call.

I have a GE dehumidifier that i hooked a garden hose to for direct drain. it will work okay for awhile then will only drain into the drain bucket. is there something i can do to ensure that it will drain...

This seems to be a fairly frequent complaint on these GE dehumidifiers, and none of the solutions I've read here or anywhere else have fixed mine. My hose is clear, straight downhill, tight to the nipple with a good gasket, no plugs visible in the nipple, but has always filled the bucket rather than drained through the hose (and it's always bone dry). After two years of this and emptying the bucket, I'm about ready to disassemble it to see if I can fix it but with all of the other unresolved complaints I've seen GE should step up to the plate and post a solution.
