SOURCE: Connecting a drain hose

Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.

SOURCE: I purchased a LG Dehumidifier

Remove the drain bucket. on the top there are two pieces that can be removed just by taking them out. they are just laying in there. 1 is the brush the other is the "drain tube insert" it is a plastic tube and has a threaded fitting on one end. take your garden hose with a female connector on one end just like you were going to install on your spicket outside of your house and connect it to the threaded end of the "drain tube insert" make sure you knockout the round plastic drain plug cover hole located in the back of the unit (it is behind where your power cord was stored) it has three tabs to break. remove drain bucket. take the drain tube with hose attatched and insert it into the drain plug hole in the back and attach it onto the drain outlet (the drain outlet is inside the drain bucket side at the top it looks like an elbow fitting) push the tube so that the flap with the arrow is flush with the back. once you get the "drain tube insert" almost all the way flush with the back -->if you look inside the drain bucket side you will see where it fits over the drain outlet

SOURCE: LG Dehumidifier overflows when attachment tube/hose attached

  • After 1 year of wondering why the LG instruction manual said no more than shove the white hose connector piece into the rear of the unit until secure, and relying on 'hit or miss' that the drain hose would actually work, (rather than filling up the bucket), I have finally found the solution. Ironically, it came while I was on my knees getting serial number from behind the bucket before they would try to help me by phone. There I saw it! The black interior drain piece inside the unit (top right when you remove the bucket) that the white house connector must be secured over. (Nothing in the manual ever told me to look for this.) As for securing the unit in the back--under the big vertical flap (which must point up and remain outside the unit), there is a smaller flap or triangular piece. They say that should be inside the unit, which it doesn't seem to go, because it is parallel to the large vertical flap), but if you push hard enough it does click onto the unit, while allowing the large while flap to remain outside (with the arrow pointing up), making the entire piece secure. Check once more to see if the white hose connector piece is secured over the interior drain piece (a black plastic elbow piece, on the top inside right where you remove the bucket, as I've said), and you'll be good to go! LG should be ashamed of their manual writing on this and the time I wasted getting my two units to work. However, at least these units are not fatally flawed as I was beginning to think.

SOURCE: haier 30 pint dehumidifier continuous drain problem.

Many just attach the hose at the reservoir; from your description, Haier apparently has a separate location. Check that the point that the hose attaches has an opening (many don't, they expect you to drill it). It should then drain through gravity. Check to make sure that no part of the drain hose is higher than the bottom of the reservoir, otherwise it can't drain. It won't siphon because each time the the tank empties, the suction is broken and the siphoning can't continue.

SOURCE: Continuous drainage

Take out the drain pan and look in left hand top of the compartment and you will see a drain hole for the pan.Plug the drain hole with a small rubber plug, I used an electrical wire nut wrapped with tape and it worked fine.replace the pan and the water will run out the back. A 3/4" garden hose should work for the drain hole.

Is the drainage pipe (for continuous operation) the small clear plastic type, or a big garden hose?


Normally, a 48" section of regular garden hose, with the female connection end intact is all that is needed. The hoses female connect attaches to the mail connection on the rear of the unit. It must slope down and remain straight to drain into a floor drain. Proper drainage relies on gravity.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I love this dehumidifier, but can not figure out how to connect a hose to the bucket so that it continually drains, as opposed to the bucket filling up. Where is the connection for the hose on this unit?


Terry, the hose connection should be on the rear of the uni, covered by a screw off cap. The hose can be not longer than 48" and should slope down and straight to the floor drain. As, proper drainage relies entirely on gravity.

I do not have the adaptor for my maytag dehumidifier model #M7DH45B2A to attach the garden hose for continuous drainage. Where can I get one, or could you give me the specifications so I can go to the...


The drain hose connecter, which accepts a garden hose type coupling is an intricate part of the unit. It is not removable. If yours broke OFF, that's a different story. However, that Part # 5214A20027A Drain Hose Connect is no longer available. As are many other parts for Maytag Dehumidifiers, that were manufactured by the now defunct, Fedders.

Unfortunately, I do think you'll be able to run out to the local hardware store and get parts to fabricate one. As the lion's share of the part is internal. http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/partinfo.php?partsID=282294&modelsID=116727&typeName=dehumidifier

I'm sorry I don't better news for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to attach drainage hose to drain automatically


Because your model dehumidifier has an unusual continuous drain hook up, as compared to other brands, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your model. You will find the information on page 3. You can downlaod and print the, manual for future reference.

http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/123922.pdf

One thing the Owner's Manual fails to mention is the length of the garden hose that can be attached to the unit. It should not exceed 5 feet. As drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

I hope this has helped you. Please let e know. Thanks.

With this model is there a way to attach a hose to it so that I can leave it running continuously while the hose is draining into drainage hole in my basement? m7dh65b2a


Yes, there is a way to do it. As a matter of fact, your model (now discontinued) came with a short section of hose. However, you can still use a short 5' section of garden hose and achieve the same results. To find the hose connection (if you don't have your Owners Manual) remove the bucket and you should see what looks like a hose connection (which it is) behind where the bucket sits in the unit. If it is not there, inspect the back of the humidifier for a small 2"x 2" pop-out compartment door. Inside of that is the hose connection. Remember, dehumidifiers do not have pumps to pump the water out, they rely on gravity for water to flow through and out of the hose.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

Hose Drainage


yes, that is what the knockout port was designed for. Make sure the hose you get does actually thread onto the hose connection port before you punch out knock out. The hose should be a standard garden hose connector.
