Whirlpool AD50USS dehumidifier hose drain

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.

Progress!!!

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!

SOURCE: Water condenses on top of dehumidifier

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.

SOURCE: hose not draining, bucket only fills

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.

Whirlpool AD50USS Dehumidifier WILL NOT DRAIN THROUGH HOSE


I have a similar model. There are two drains, one for the hose and one directly into the bucket. The hose one is supposed to be lower, but I had to put a 3/8 inch block under the right side of the unit to get the water to favor the hose instead of the bucket. Another possibility is that the far end of the hose is higher than the near end. If you can't lower it, you can put the whole dehumidifier up on blocks. One other thing to check is that the hose has a rubber washer in it where it connects to the unit. Use a tissue to see if this connection is dry. If it leaks, it will just drip into the bucket.
Good luck!

How do I install a hose so this humidifier drains automatically?


Look at the drain pan, it might have a garden hose connection that you might have to knock out, mine is not the same model but it may be similiar, and then run it to a floor drain or such. Good Luck

Why doesn't dehumidifier drain through hose? Even with the hose connected, the water still drips into the bucket and shuts off.

Hose line is no longer draining the unit, bucket fills instead


Sounds like the connector hoae came off inside the machine . Look up inside the machine where the bucket would go and you should see where the hose attaches to the condensate drain . It might have pulled off .

Danby ddr7009ree - continuous drain won't work


I have the same Danby unit and the same problem. When you take out the water bucket look inside and find the two holes where the water drips into the bucket. These holes are approximately 5/16" and 3/8" diameter. These holes need to be plugged. Your local hardware store has an assortment of specialized parts boxes. Find the box that contains "corks" of various sizes. They sell for about 20¢ apiece. I bought 5 within that size catagory and two of them worked! Problem solved.

I have a Maytag M7DH65B2A. I hooked up a hose to


Had the same problem. Make sure you tighten the house a little with pliers. Also, make sure the dehumidifier is up a lot higher than where you're draining it into. Mine drains into a utility sink. But I have the dehumidifier propped up onto a dresser. I cut a small piece of hose to run into the sink. Seems to be working now.

It will take 5 min or so to establish a water flow, so be patient after you hook everything up. Good luck.

Need manual for fedder dehumidifer to hook up drain hose. need to know were drain hose connects.


Pull out the water collection tray. You will see a small pipe (about 1/2" diameter) in the top of the area where the tray came from. This is the "drain" that fills the tray. Connect a hose to this pipe and run the hose to a floor drain if you have one. I used a section from an old garden hose for my unit. There also may be a small opening in the back wall of the dehumidifier to route the hose more aesthetically.
