Question about Whirlpool AD50USS Dehumidifier
My new Whirlpool AD50USS dehumidifier does not drain to the hose drain. There is a 5 millimeter diameter hole in the drip tray assembly (below the condenser)that forces the water to go to the bucket before it can get to the hose outlet. This does not allow for continous operation. The unit did not come with a plug for the hole nor did the user amnual mention it.
Here you go:
P.S. - You can rate a solution with one of fourratings as explained under (remember that at times a bit of to and fro dialoguemay be necessary to resolve an issue).

I've never taken this unit apart. I always manage to get stuff disassembled just by taking one step at a time, slow & easy, without using excessive force which might break something.
In this case, have you closely inspected for less obvious screws?
There may be tabs/fasteners which need prying back or, the pieces may just snap or pry apart.
There may be components which need to be disconnected which run through the case/cabinet keeping it from coming apart.
Sorry I can't give you more info, but feel free to ask more questions -- it's easier to answer a specific than to generalize.
P.S. I was going to suggest blowing out the drain, but you beat me to it!

Your unit has a sealed system leak. The sealed system is warrantied for five years. Check your owners manual for this info. You will need your receipt and to call an authorized LG warranty dealer to exchange it.

The easiest way to unstop the hose is to blow air through the end enough to clear the clumped up dust at the other end using air compressor or air pump.
