Lost suction to drain into hose connector

Dehumidifer was draining into the hose connector until I cleaned the vent. It now will only drain into the bucket (tank assembly). I thought at first the hose wasn't connected but can't figure out what I've done. The motor works great. Can anyone help?

I think your draintube connection became dislodged. Stick it in again and make sure it's still connected when you place the drain hose into whatever you use.

I've had a similar problem and I was told by Whirlpool that the hose has to run down along the side of the dehumidifier and not straight out. I moved it and things improved; then I moved it again and it got worse. So maybe you moved the hose while cleaning the vent, and moving the position around will help?

Despite having a hose connected to the drain my dehumidifer still drains into the bucket. Is there a setting or a switch that I need to change?

sommrhome - You're having to empty it, because either the drain hose you have connected to the unit is clogged or the drain hole at the hose connection is clogged. Therefor, the water is drained into the tank, rather than the drain hose. Also, the drain hose should not be any longer than 5' and must drain down, as the dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies totally on gravity.

Remove the hose and check it for clogs. If clear check the drain hose connection, using an 18" long appropriately sized Zip Tie. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. Gingerly work past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The while slowly pulling it out, rotate the Zip Tie. This will dislodge the clog. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie removal, be prepared for some water to follow. CAUTION: BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE ABOVE TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

The above should solve the problem for you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a hamptom bay dehumidifer model # HB40-D i am looking for the tray that you attach a hose to drain

it should be in the same area where you pull the pan out to dump. There should be a hose hook up inside the space where the drain box is.

How to hook up a drain tube to the pan in the dehumidifer. Do I need to take out the float shutoff?

No, it is not necessary to remove the float shutoff. As water will be constantly draining from the unit, when the hose is connected.

Hope this helped you.

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.

Dehumidifier not draining

hose/fitting is clogged - blow it out with your mouth or what ever - it won't be a hard clog

Hose connector

First, is the dehumidifier high enough so that the hose isn't 'backing up'? Otherwise, attach a small radiator hose clamp to hold it on.

Drain hose attachment

Checkout this website...they have an owners manual you can download: http://us.lgservice.com/ A little hard to find, but it's there. In short, there is a small hole in the back of the dehumidifier between the cord handles. There will be a cap held in place over the hole by three small connectors. With some pliers, remove the hole cover. Take your hose connector and place it in the hole until it won't go any further (you can feel it hit the front of the water bucket). The instructions will show pressing the tab of your hose connector into the bottom of the hole to hold it in place. Don't know about yours, but mine is too long to do that. Connect a short length of garden hose to the threaded end of the connector and you've got it. Instructions say hose has to be flat leading straight from the dehumidifier to a drain, so don't place the draining end of the hose up in a sink or anything, use a floor drain. Hope this helps!
