Whirlpool AD70USR0 Dehumidfier - Our basement is extremely humid and the dehumidfier sounds and looks like its running but collects no humidity...any suggestions why?


If it is very cold some of these consumer units will not turn on the compressor. If the unit suddenly stopped working and the temperature is room temperature I would guess a refrigeration issue- either a leak or bad compressor. Make sure the "full bucket" indicator light is not on- the condensate bin may not be plugged into the unit properly.

I have a whirlpool dehumidifier (AD75UST0) and it appears to be 'dead'. is there a fuse or a reset?


No. I have had a AD75UST0 WHIRLPOOL Dehumidifier for several years. My unit slowly got less and less efficient, then it "stopped" coming on as if it was not working. Upon disassemble and inspection I found fan was no longer spinning. It tries to start then (actually the condenser coils begin to freeze, but no Fan) then it shuts down within 30 sec or so.

I am going to try a replacement Fan and fan start Capacitor (always replace in pairs).

I have had the Whirlpool GOld dehumidifier for 4 years. It was working great. Recently, I noticed that it stopped working. When plugged it, it trips my GFI socket. I have tried various outlets and checked...


Obviously, there is an electrical short within the unit. Should it be repaired? Yes, if you want continue using it. But, is the cost of troubleshooting, finding the necessary part and repairing it worth it? Most of the time, the cost to repair a dehumidifier is about the same, as what a new one would cost. Now, if purchased an extended warranty, when you originally bought the unit 4 years ago, then you're probably covered for the repair.

In the end, the decision is yours to make.

I have a Whirlpool AD75UST humidifier that stopped running, almost like it blew a fuse or something. Does it have a fuse somewhere? Any other possibilities? Thank you!


Have you checked the receptacle it's plugged into, to see if it's still working? Use an electric lamp to check this. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker in the home's main panel has been tripped. Unplug the dehumidifier and reset the circuit breaker. Then plug the dehumidifier back in. If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's an electrical problem within the dehumidifier.

In answer to your direct question ... some dehumidifiers have a reset switch. It's probably on the back of the unit, above the water collection tub. if all else fails consult your Owners Manual's Trouble Shooting Guide. If you have misplaced it, you can download it from the Whirlpool Appliance starting at their home page.

Hope this helped head you in the right direction to solving your problem.

The drain hose stopped working on my Whirlpool gold dehumidifier. Now the bucket fills and the machine shuts off. Tried cleaning the filter and clearing the hose. Still the same problem. But the hose...


I had the same problem....raised the unit 3 feet off floor, the drain hose is 4feet long... But the secret to getting unit to drain into hose if unit is set to Continous is...... TILT the unit back about 5 degrees with a half inch piece of wood under front wheels and She will drain into hose instead of bucket.... IF this don't work , I will eat the bucket.........goldiejud@netscape.net

Hi, bought one two weeks ago. Try it on auto and set at 'normal', and 'dry' and the unit will stay running with out stopping over a period of day and a half. Collected about 1/3 tank of water. Phoned...


If you are in a very humid room or area it will not shut of until it reaches desired humidity% level that is set. If it is reaching the set level and not turning off I would return it.
