    I have a Simplicity Dehumidifier SDR307EE. This is the first day it has run and it already reads P1 in the LED display. There is no reference to such a readout in the manual. What is this???

    Same problem with Westpointe dehumdifier. No mention of "P1" in the manual.

Condenser coils do not freeze, it is the evaporator coils that freeze. If it is icing up then the setting is too low for the area it is in, basically the humidistat will never be satisfied so it will run continually and end up freezing the evap coils, the coils could also freeze if the filter is dirty or there is an air flow problem.

It appears to mean "defrosting." In other words, the condenser coils have gotten too cold and are icing up. If you let it run, it will warm up and begin working again in about 15-20 minutes.

What is wrong with a Westpointe dehumidifier when it stops removing water and displays P1? It will run this way for hours and kick in and work briefly once in a while on continuous.


Usually the P1 error indicates that dehumidifier needs to be defrosted. The unit has detected ice build-up on the condenser coils.

Unplug the dehumidifier for several hours. Then plug it back in. If the problem recurs, check that the fan that blows air across the coils is working properly. Make sure that the room is not colder than the operating range of the dehumidifier. If the problems continues to occur, you may have a refrigerant leak in the system. That will require a service call to repair the dehumidifier.

If the unit is under warranty, contact Westpointe. The manual I have for a Westpointe 65 PT dehumidifier, https://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/136333-1.pdf, indicates the unit is covered through year 5 after purchase for a refrigerant system. For Warranty service, the contact point is Midea Consumer Service at 1-866-646-4332. If the unit is not under warranty, consider whether to replace the dehumidifier.

I hope this helps.

Display says full


Check to see if there is a "reset button" and reset it. Try to unplug, and then replug the power cord. If the display says "full" when it's not, but everything still works, and you can't reset it, you can ignore it, OR, take it apart and see if there is a physical switch that's activated by the level of the water to determine what the display is reading, and try to fix or adjust it.

My Whirlpool AD40USL5 Dehumidifier is displaying P1 on the control panel. I am not able to find any information about this in the User Guide that came with my unit. Could you please tell me what this...


Here is a link to the Owners Manual for the model number you listed. However, it does not have a LCD display on the Control Panel, which would show the Error Code P1. This is a Kitchen Aid brand that was manufactured by Whirlpool with the AD40USL5 Model Number. This came directly from Whirlpool's website. Hope it helps you in some way.

What does P1 mean on display?


Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

I hope that helps.

My model is DDR4009EE, after it run for a while, the display changed from RH to "P1",what does "P1" mean?


My Danby DDR657EE shows P1 periodically also. So, I called Danby.

E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

So, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

Also, here is a link to Danby's FAQ page for Dehumidifiers (which answers some common questions):
