DRAIN HOLE COVER
USING A GARDEN
You have the option of attaching a garden hose
to your dehumidifier to drain water later than
using the water bucket.
The empty water bucket must still be installed
for the dehumidifier to operate.
Attach hose prior to initial operation.
First, remove the drain hole cover on the rear
grille. Use needlenose pliers to pull the drain
hole cover out. Figure 2.
Next, connect a garden hose to the threaded
end of the drain hose connection, being careful
not to overtighten the hose.
Slide out the bucket. Look into the dehumidifier
drain hole on the rear grill. You will see the
stem that the drain hose connector fits into.
Push the connector firmly into the stem.
Make sure that the garden hose is not bent or
kinked. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.
When not in use, the drain hose connector can
be stored in the water bucket.
Lift the cover off the water bucket and place the
connector into the V shape grooves directly
below the bucket handle.
An optional drain hose (#9181) is available for
purchase through Sears Retail stores.
