Question about Whirlpool Gold AD70USS 70 Pint Per Day Ultra Low Temp Basement Dehumidifier with AccuDry Sensing Sys... Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working


Model Number AD 70 USV

On April 14, 2009 I bought the Whirlpool 70 Pint Dehumidifier from Canadian Tire.  

I placed it in our finished basement with lots of space around it, installed a hose, started the unit and it seemed to be working properly.

Since wet spring weather has not really got underway, the basement is still fairly dry.

But since I turned the unit on and set it at normal and auto, it hasn't stopped running. I shut it off manually until the humidity rises and then manually start it again.

The unit reduces the humidity to 40% and continues to run.  Is 40% humidity considered normal and if so, why doesn't the machine shut off? 

The unit has an automatic on and off function that so far is not working.

What needs to be done to correct this problem?

Thanks for your help.

Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

SOURCE: Dehumidifier problem

First, make sure the rectangular filter on the back side is clean so air can flow over the coils freely. Try to place the dehumidifier on a table or something to get it off the floor. (floor level is cooler than head level) If you still have icing issues, replace sensor. (part # WK23X10011 )

SOURCE: What is the proper humidity control % setting?

It is recommended that your settings stay at 35%. The ideal level of humidity in your house is anywhere between 30% to 60% depending on the weather outside.. I hope that this works for you. Have a good day

SOURCE: Danby Dehumidifier

I dropped the water bucket by accident on the dehumidifier, and I have the same problem. Here what I found :
First, remove the water bucket and find the circuit diagram, it is very useful.

E1 code is related to the room humidity sensor, E2 code is related to the room temperature sensor and E3 code is related to the safety thermistor sensor. If you have one of these error code displayed, you will probably have to replace the sensor.

The humidity and temp sensors are located on the same board. To access it, remove the water bucket and you will see the 2 screws holding the front panel. Remove the screws, then gently prayed the front panel. Be careful, there is two plastic clip on the top of the panel and they are really easy to break. The board is located at the top right, under the cover. The safety thermistor is located on a pipe on the right side of the dehumidifier.
