If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.

You don"t put anything into the bucket. A dehumidifier will fill the bucket for you.

Do I have a filter I need to change in my dehumidifier MHDW


i assume you have a humidifier and not a DEhumidifier? putting water in a dehumidifier defeats the purpose. it should remove the water from the air. don't fill the tank on the bottom. empty it. as for the filter, just use a vacuum across the front fins to remove the dust.

New Whirlpool gold dehumidifier last summer. Used since then. It still runs (fan) but no water is being taken from the air. I clean the filters, looked at coils, they are like brand new. I hate to give up,...


Kim, it may simply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to HIGH. Lower it to 35%. If it's an analog unit (No LED Display) turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum. More often than not, this will solve the problem. If it doesn't the humidity sensor may need to be replaced.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Whirlpool DEHUMIDIFIER Model - AD70USS1 does fan NOT does not cycle off anymore in the low settings as it should


According to the Owner's Manual for your model, the fan will run continually, if the unit is set in continuous mode or if the unit is in defrost mode. Once the unit senses a rise in the humidity level, the compressor will start up again. Also, a dirty or clogged air filter will cause the fan to run more that it should.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My whirlpool dehumidifier fan runs, but no water is being taken out of the air; cleaned the filter and still no change; dehumidifier was purchased in August 2008.


Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

Not condensing


Check to see if coils are getting cold, (run for 10 min. then unplug, and check inside unit). If they are, check and clean filter and coils. If not, most likely no economical to fix. Check consumer reports before buying a new one. New standards came in to play this year. Changed quality on the units.

I BOUGHT 50 PINT DEHUMIDIFIER AT CANADIAN TIRE LESS THAN A YEAR AGO.IT LEAKS WATER.NOT SURE WHERE IT IS COMING FROM.ANY POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS?


Try cleaning the filter first. Pull it out and then wash it with water and let it dry overnight. Then clean the spigot/nozzle which fills the pan. This often becomes clogged with dust or debris or even insect webs. Once you wipe the nozzle with a rag, really clean it well with a finger. You should feel the rubber gasket at the end of the nozzle with your finger.

Likely the fill nozzle was just clogged so water drips along the top and down the sides of the pan instead of into it.

Good luck.
