Question about Whirlpool Dehumidifiers

Open Question

Whirlpool Model AD40USRO

I have 3 Whirlpool Model AD40USRO dehumidifers.

Each ran trouble free for about 15 months in a large basement.storage area before failing. Settings were on automatic at 50% humidity. The units duty cycled at about 50%.

The front control panel buttons and the fan of each unit appears to function properly, but each compressor has quit.

Any suggestions?

IIt may very well be that the the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. But, before doing this, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing the filter.Never operate the unit without the filter in place, As this could damage the unit.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

MODEL DM 162EBS. Why is it when I switch my dehumidfier on 10 minutes later it goes to defrost. [ WHY?]


Let's think thru the dehumidification process--

A dehumidifer needs to create a COLD surface, on which to condense the moisture in the room.
If your room is quite cool, it is esily possible that the COLD surface can go below freezing-- Now the water is trapped in the ice-- So-- it has to defrost, to melt off the ice, and start all over again!

Can you move the Dehumidifier to a warmer spot-- maybe near a radiator, or a heat register? -- You will remove much more moisture in that way, too..

Just a question: Most homes are WAY TO DRY during the winter months-- are you sure you need to dehumidify your living area? (Maybe you are drying the basement?-- or a wet area?)

Just seeing if I can help

My dehumidifier runs, but no water is collecting. Humidity in the house is about 57%. The unit is only 3 months old.


If the room tempature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

Maytag Dehumidifer still works, but is leaking


Well life span is 3-15 years depends how long and hard you run them. 45 pint is about 1000sqft basment. rule of thumbs bigger better. run less and do a better job. I would start by filling the bucket and place in a dry shower see if you have a crack. cant find a source for the bucket discontinued this might be your problem. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-M7DH45B2A-%3d%3di1025984&PartID=1025984 Repair cost are about 40-50 and hour!!!! good luck

Cycles every 3 minutes


It may be in a basement that is to cool. Unless this is a special low temp dehumid it needs to be in the upper 60's to work correctly. Also a 50 pint is for a pretty good size area, if it is in a small area or if the temp is to cool in the basement it is in it will freeze up and cycle off. 3 min is awfull quick though. It may be low on freon also. Just a couple things to think about.

Dehumidifer seems to run constantly


With that low of a setting it will most likely be kicking in alot more often. Most people run their dehumidifiers between 60-65%. It is a matter of preference. Also some basements hold out moisture more than others. There could be alot of variables affecting this. One thing you need to make sure is that you have the correct placement. Make sure you dont keep it near the sump pump or any other standing water because those areas have more humidity due to the water being there. Also make sure it is not in an area like a laundry room because when your washing machine despenses water it is despensing moisture into the air. I try to keep it at a central location if at all possible and away from areas that have water. If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101
