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

1 Answer

The unit lights up, fans run but no moisture is pulled out of the air. I used the unit last summer and it worked well, plugged it in this summer and it will not pull moisture. Any idea what might be wrong? I have the unit hooked to a hose and ran into a drain, the bucket is not full.

How do i fix it so that it will collect water?


1st ck that your humidistat is set correcly and unit cycles the compressor on/off correctly ,Not just the cirulation fan running all the time , next ck your filters , clogged up filters wont allow air to pull thru unit , also are you sure room has enough moisture in it to pull water from, Most units wont draw a percievable amount of water out of air thats got less than 52%rh , as most homes target a 70%rH as normal

Dehumidifier VS. Air conditioner


A dehumidifier is basically the same thing as an air conditioner but both coils (condenser and evaporator) are in the same unit meaning a dehumidifier exhaust warm air in the same room it is in. running a dehumidifier would make an air conditioner run more because of the warm exhaust, when you run an air conditioner it acts like a dehumidifier and dries the air. As far as saving energy it all depends on the size of the AC and dehumidifier and the size of the room. If you want warm dry air, use a dehumidifier; if you want cool dry air run the AC but not both.
How do all these parts fit together to pull moisture from the air? It's fairly simple, but very effective:
  1. A fan collects air from the surrounding area and pulls it into the dehumidifier.
  2. As the air passes through, it comes into contact with the dehumidifier's cooled coils. These coils use condensation to pull moisture from the air. The collected moisture remains on the coils and drips into the dehumidifier's reservoir.
  3. The dehumidifier reheats the air and exhausts it back into the room.
A dehumidifier usually has a removable plastic bucket for are reservoir; most buckets also have a place where you can hook up a hose so the collected water can drain straight into a floor drain or pump. This frees you from having to remember to dump out the water. But don't worry too much about the reservoir overflowing -- most dehumidifiers also have an automatic shut-off. If you're using a dehumidifier in extremely moist conditions,however, or if you need to keep your dehumidifier on all the time, you should look into a unit with a built-in condensate pump, which regularly pumps water out of the unit's reservoir rather than simply relying on gravity to empty it as a hose does.

I have a Danby dehumidifier model DDR6011R and it runs but I have yet to empty any water from it. I have used other dehumidifiers in the same area and they take out tons of water. What's the problem


1st ck your humidistat settings yes the fan can run but not the compressor to take water out
2nd ck your filters could they be blocked ?
and last but not least if the unit is more than a few years old its not as efficient as newer units and will take much longer to work consider an upgrade to a newer unit , also moisture levels in basements vary due to season , winter not as damp as summer so volume of water removed will change
use an external humidy gauge to verify it working correctly there not so expensive now and can be gotten most places that sell dehumidifyers 70 % rh is considered normal

The dehumidifier is running constantly but no water is being collected


Sounds like you're in a wintery environment. Most people operate a humidifier in those locations because the air is too dry. If that is your situation, I suggest you turn the dehumidifier off until Summer and save electricity. If will pull moisture out of the air in the summer.

Compressor runs and you can feel the the heat exchanger cool, but the fan doesn't run and no water comes out of the drain hose, the full indicator light works fine


The fan has to run or the moisture will freeze on the coil, try to help the fan motor turn reach in and the blade a flick in any direction and then pull your long skinny helper out and watch the fan it may just run or give you a idea whats up. They get dirty and I'm sure that it worked last time. Nothing fancy but it might help.

Dehumid. runs and fan blows but no water in tank and never shuts off, 5yr. old maytag, only runs in summer


Several things can cause this problem. The leading one, is that the humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%. One of the others, is a dirty or clogged air intake filter. Followed by obstructed air flow. You need to maintain at least a minimum of 12" clear air space around the unit. Also, most humidifiers struggle to operate correctly, if the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 to 60 degrees F. This will also cause the fan to run a lot if the unit is set in continuous mode, rather than a timed mode. And finally, if any doors or windows are open, the unit will run forever. Make sure all doors and windows are closed.

Here's an in home test to see if it's working properly. Move the dehumidifier to the bathroom. Plug it in turn it ON and set the humidity/moisture extraction level to 35%. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON and close any windows that may be open. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 to 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom. Once you do, turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run for 5 minutes more. Then check the bucket for any signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should.

If you don't see any signs of water, the unit's compressor may need to be recharged with refrigerant.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

106.57 fan runs does not work


It is dry this time of year. There may not be any water to pull out of the air.

Chris, as you may know, a dehumidifier is nothing more than a 'de-tuned' AC unit in a small package. If you are sure you have excess moisture in the air, (ideal humidity is 50%) and you have tried running a fan to circulate the air where the unit is located, your unit may require professional service.
