My problem is actually with similar model AD50EUSW. Water is blowing out of the side where the air blows out of. It is a significant amount of water. What could be causing this? (The machine is only a year old)

Possibly, but I doubt it. Because, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2..

1. Operator Error - The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a
mechanical unit, set the manual control knob to Maximum.

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.

Not all of the above will apply to your situation. But, they are good know for future reference.
I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

No water collected


check to see if the fan is blowing across the condenser. there should be warm air blowing out the back. if there isn't, the fan may need to be replaced so the heat exchanger can cool down. may be running too hot. also check the condenser in the front to see if the air flow is blocked with dust. if so, change the filter if it has one. if there is cool air blowing, the compressor may not be turning on.

MY dehumdifier is blowing warm air ,Is there a fitler that needs to be cleaned and how is this done ? Model 3fdl5051 50pints


It's not unusual for a dehumidifier to blow warm air. As it may be in defrost mode. Even so, they still blow warm air.

The model number you furnished is slightly helpful. Knowing what brand it is, would be even better.

Never-the-less, the filter should be located behind the front louvers of the unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder, just behind the front louvers. You may see a plastic pull tab handle. If so, that's the filter frame. Pull it straight down and out.

If you didn't find it there, look on the right hand side of the unit, just behind the louvers for what looks like a a flip open door. If you see that, flip the door open and remove the filter.

The filter can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid. Thoroughly rinse and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The dehumidifier is running, sucking air in at the back and blowing out through the front grill, but over a number of days is not actually collecting any water in the water tray.


The quantity of water depends on the relative humidity in YOUR air.You may need to have the unit checked to see that the mechanical portion is working....

Blows cold air,but no condensed water


To condense the water (cold side) the air should be warm.

Sounds like coolant leak or compressor problem; if so, time for new unit.

Dehumidifier headaches!


There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that allows air passage) if it's filled with dust and obstructions, no air can move...no water. There is a blower motor that mus move the air. If it is seized up an not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor uses condensation from the air moving across its coils (like the moisture than forms on a cold glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

My kenmore 50 pint dehumidifier 54501 runs but it does not taking in water


You need to determine what's "running". Here's why: There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

The dehumidifier is blow cold air


Is it collecting water? The air coming out the back top half should be cool/warm. It will be a little warmer at the bottom near the compressor.

A common problem - low on refrigerant. Unfortunately it's not a simple fix. Check your warranty to see if you're still covered for "Sealed system repairs"
