Bucket full light blinking, code 01


Assuming you have already emptied the bucket (?), the bucket may not have been reinstalled properly. When this happens, you get what you described. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the water collection bucket an reinstall it, so the it fits "squarely" into the bucket holder from top to bottom. It needs to make firm contact with the bucket removal safety switch on the left rear wall of the bucket holder. The bucket should not tilt down at the bottom when installed properly. Plug the cord back in and turn the unit ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35%. If installed properly, the unit should turn ON within 5 seconds.

If the above does not solve the problem, the bucket safety removal switch may be broken. Remove the bucket and try activating it with your finger while the bucket is removed. If the unit doesn't start within a fem seconds, the switch is bad and should be replaced.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Whirlpool Gold Dehumidifier -The lights are all working, no fan? Is there a reset ?


You have what Whirlpool calls a Type 3 Control Panel. If you don't have the unit operating in Continuous Mode, the fan will operate only, when the compressor turns on to extract the humidity, based on the level of extraction you have it set on. If you haven't already,.set the control on Maximum and Continuous Mode.

If that doesn't solve the problem, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, the 15 minute timeout, allowed the unit to reset itself and revert back to the original factory settings. If so, you can set the controls as you like.

To further assist you, I have an included a link to your Owner's Manual, in case you have misplaced your. You can download and print it for future reference.

It still tell me that the dehumidifier is full even if i emptying.


That's generally what happens when the bucket is reinstalled and it doesn't trigger the bucket removal safety switch. Remove the bucket and look up inside the cavity for a protruding plastic trigger type switch. The bucket must make proper contact with it, so the the unit will run. Before removing the bucket, make sure the unit is turned ON. That way, when you reinstall it and trigger the switch correctly, the unit will start automatically When you reinstall it, be sure that the top and bottom of the bucket fit squarely into the cavity holder. Also, check the float level in the tank, to see if it is locked in the UP position. If it is, giggle it just a bit, to make it return to the DOWN position.

If that fails to solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 10 minutes. After the elapsed time, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/Off Switch to ON. Hopefully during that 10 minute timeout, the unit's electronics have reset themselves and the your will have reverted back to the original factory settings. You can then rest them the way you want to.

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

Try resetting the bucket, making sure that it is set properly and triggers the safety lever/switch. If that doesn't solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If the bucket is installed properly, the unit should revert back to the original factory settings.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

Makes a loud beep every minute or so. Doesn't seem like basket is filling with water either.


Turn the Master ON/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the air intake filter and clean it. Allow it to thoroughly dry, before reinstalling it. Once the filter is thoroughly dry, reinstall it, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity level at 35% and allow the unit to run as you normally would. The beating should have stopped, since you cleaned the filter. Be sure to maintain at least 2 feet of clear air space around the dehumidifier.

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

Dehumidifier wont turn on or reset. code comes up as F2 and wont reset. Cleaned off filter. no help. any ideas you have would be appreciated.Just bought it last year. we have the hose connected to a...


To figure out what Code F2 is, I took a look at the Owners Manual for the Model # AD70USS, Strangely, the Owners Manual doesn't list an F2 Code or any codes for that matter. Because that model number humidifier, does not have an LED screen.

Never the less, to reset your unit using an alternate method. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes before plugging it back in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and the dehumidifier should have reset itself. If it doesn't check the positioning of the water bucket, to make sure it's contacting the safety switch. Eventhough, you're using a drain home, it's still important.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Was full - turned off to empty - replaced empty bucket, won'r turn back on and keeps beeping full


Try reinserting the bucket, making sure that it's positioned properly. So that the safety switch is engaged. If that still doesn't solve the problem. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to ON and hopefully, if the bucket is positioned properly, the unit will have reset itself.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

Ice is forming on the coils - delonghi dehumidifier


Check your filter, indoor coil and blower wheel to see if they are dirty, if they are they need to be cleaned, if not then you are probably low on refrigerant or Blower speed to low. If the blower doesn’t run when you turn the switch to on then you need to check the blower out, especially the capacitor.

Humidity buttons don't seem to work.


the control board is a very simple design and it is to signal and switch options like fan speed, power on/off, humidity up/down and sets the on/off run time. Like above the board does collect dust,but the true problem runs deeper.

My unit was stuck in run mode with the fan speed, humidity and run timmer non functioning. the unit worked and the power switch turned it on and off. The display said ON

I removed the front cover (two screws) and slight pressure on the side of the cover to remove it. This exposes the control board. The control board can be removed by removing the 6 screws on the board. the cable can then be removed by pulling out the multi-pin ribbon cable.

I diagnosed that only two of the 5 push button switched were functioning. There was also dust and mold on the board. This board is poorly protected from the moist air entering the unit and the constand moisture causes corrosion on the board, the switched seem to be the weak link.

By using a multi meter I noted that only the power switch and the humidity down button were making contact when pressed. Now it all came together. I could turn it on and off. and if you press the humidity down button to the lowers setting (ON) means run all the time.

I used a elecronic contact cleaner and sprayed it into each of the switches. I wiggled it around and blew it out with canned air. It took a few wiggles and blasts but all switched then made contact. I the board back on and tested all functions and it was like new. The contact cleaner should keep it protected for a while. The non functioning of the switches works both ways. They can stick on also. This would explain most of the other control problems. These switched are common and can be picked up at Radio Shack. On a do-it-yourself bananna scale it was a 2 for me, but I had the tools and the spray. I am not sure what sears gets for the PC control board,but this is the issue and if they were to address this the unit complaints would drop greatly.
