the problem just might be that your are trying to use this unit at a time of season that is cold weather. there is no humidity in the air so the unit is cycling on and off .there by the noise you hear. dehums work best when the temp is 65 degrees or higher and the humidity level is 60% or higher. and that means outside. in order to have humidity the water has to be heated up to the point that it starts to evaporate.

SOURCE: Fan no compressor will run
I have AD75USTO. Whirlpool was running yesterday. Today it sound like its starting but will not boot up fan will not kick on. Does it need resetting or what. Only a year old only used for one summer?

It sounds like an issue with the control bord. This dehumidifier should have a 5 year warranty through LG. You will need to have this serviced. If it is under warranty by LG they will either refer you to a local repair shop and they will pay for the repair or they will replace it if you do not have a repair shop in your area. Call them and explain the problem to them. Make sure that you have your reciept. Here is the contact information for LG:

What do you have the humidity level set at on your dehumidifier? The average is 65%. Make sure you do not have it set at 75% because if you do this could be causing it to keep the humidity so high.

That's your compressor. (the condenser is the tubing just after the compressor) First, make sure you are not using an extention cord, or if you do, make sure it is a heavy enough cord. Low voltage can cause your problem, do to a light extention cord use. Second, you may have a bad relay. (inside the box on the side of the compressor) Third, your compressor may be bad. They can be direct tested with a compressor test cord by a service tech that knows what they are doing. Bad compressor = get a new dehumidifier (too expensive to replace).
