Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running.

If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there’s little or no water in the container/bucket, there is possibly a problem with the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the air filter, coils and the unit itself.

But if that doesn’t work, you will need a qualified appliance repair person or facility because refrigeration fault is now what you can fix yourself.

Good luck.

You can normally hear a humidistat open and close if you listen closely. Also, the water tank has either a float or pressure switch that will shut it down.

Does the Fan on a Haier HD456E always run,


I believe the fan is designed to run all the time, and no, it costs very little to run an 18w fan. You can use a timed socket, or switch it on and off when needed. I don't believe the Haier has specific switching times.

My Haier dehumidifier is harly removing any moisture from the air. It appears to run normally and I have cleaned the filter regularly. I've owned it about a year and it is model HD456E. It worked very...


If the evaporator coils behind the filters become too dirty condensation can be seriously ********. Check to see if the fins require any attention; they can be cleaned very carefully with a toothbrush and some water usually. If the buildup has become severe special chemicals need to be used on the unit- not something recommended the average person attempt. If the fins are clear check other airflow issues. Dehumidifiers generally need a period of 3 days to balance an area properly when functioning and sized appropriately.

Unir ran good for 8 months then cut off with current humidity reading LO. Humidity is not LO. Have to set below 40% then runs all the time. The AUTO humidistat sensor must be broke. 1 year...


In addition to a faulty humidistat sensor, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, contact Haier Customer Support
1-877-337-3639, before your warranty expires.Haier units will generally show an E1 code if a sensor or circuit is faulty and unit will not run at all.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.


I hope all of this has helped you.

THE UNIT DOES NOT DEHUMIDIFY, MODEL HD456E, I SET THE TEMPERATURE TO 50 AND IT ALWAYS SHOWS THE WORD "LO" AND WILL NOT RUN, UNIT HAS LESS THAN 200 HRS. WHAT DO I DO? unit was purchased at menards...


You are setting the temperature to low. Dehumidifiers do not work well between 40 - 60 degrees F. That's why the word "LO" keeps showing up. Raise the temperature setting and set the humidity extraction level (Arrow Down) at 30-32%. In fact, if you can disregard the temperature setting and the unit will work, do so. That seems to be the fly in the ointment, when it comes to getting everything to work as it should.

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

I suspect from what you have described, that the humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it (Arrow Down) to 30-32%. If the filter is clean and the water collection bucket is installed properly, the unit should start working, shortly there after.

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

The motor runs but no water collects in the bucket. olfi've had it running for hours.. please help. it's only 13 mod p


mempandora, the humidity level that you set on the unit may be to high. In which case the unit will only maintain that level, rather than remove any moisture/humidity. Lower the setting to 35% or minimal, if your unit does not have an LED display. In addition, the air intake filter probably needs cleaning and the coolant coils need to be wiped down and cleaned. The latter is the only part that will require some partial dismantling of the dehumidifier's cabinet. Also, it is imperative, to maintain a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit. And finally, the ambient air temperature at floor level may be affecting the operation. If the temperature is between 40 & 60 degrees F, the unit struggles to sense humidity. This is particularly true in a basement. As, the air at the floor is colder than the air temperature.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Plug it in turn it on and nothing in the bucket after several hours


Hi, Mindy! The following is an overall review of what causes the problem you listed.

If the room air is less than the set air, then there is no water in the bucket, because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water. In addition, if you set the humidity level you want to maintain higher the actual humidity level in the house or room, it won't pickup and collect any moisture. The fans on most of the dehumidifiers on the market today run almost constantly. They do this, so that the room air is always moving and if humidity is detected, it will extract it.

Hope this helps you understand how dehumidifiers function and what you can expect from them under given circumstances,. In fact, there may not be anything mechanically wrong with yours. But, to make sure, do what is suggested above to test the unit.
