Question about Woods WD25G Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Hi, We have the Woods 30 dehumidier and we're having trouble getting the water level indicator into the bucket. We're not sure if it has been bent or if we are supposed to use our fingers to put it in or if it should just easily go in itself. I can't seem to find any manuals or user guides online at all to show how it should work.

Taking the Confusion Out of Using a Dehumidier


Many consumers are confused about setting the proper levels of humidity on dehumidifier units. And then think something is mechanically wrong with the unit. When in fact, over 70% of the time it operator error. That and a lack of proper routine maintenance are the problem.

The numbers on the LED screen represent the amount of humidity you want to maintain. Not the amount you want to remove. For example: If you set the level at 70%, which is rather high, more than likely the unit may start up momentarily and then shut OFF. That's because the setting is to high. Now, if you set it at 45%, the unit will turn ON and run until either the bucket is full and/or the humidity level has reached 45%.

Here's a good rule of thumb if you use your humidifier year round.

In the Winter you want to maintain a humidity level of 50 to 60%. The moister the air, the more comfortable it will feel. Plus, the humidity helps eliminate static electricity in the air.

Conversely, in the hot, humid Summer months, you want to keep the humidity level as low as possible (35% or less). Also, if you have ceiling fans, using them 24 hours a day, helps to move the air and generate a windchill, which fools your body into thinking it's cooler than what it really is. At the same time, it's saving on energy costs by not having to run your AC as much, because the dehumidifier is removing the humidity.

Just remember, the higher the setting, the higher the humidity level will stay. The lower the setting, the more humidity will be removed and the more comfortable you'll feel in the Summer.

And don't forget Routine Maintenance. Clean the air intake filter regularly. Clean and wipe down the refrigerant coils every 60 days. And don't allow water to remain in the collection bucket to long. As mold can build up in it.

Speaking of which, the water in the bucket, when fresh, is great for watering house plants. Because, when it's fresh, it's distilled water. No chlorine or minerals.

Dehumidier works fine! However it leaks water even when the bucket is empty and started. Some water collects in bucket but most runs out on the floor. What is wrong?


The drain hole of drain tube, that transports water to the bucket is clogged.

To solve this problem, do the following:

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

I hope this helps you solve the problem.

My dehumidier is not pulling any water into the bucket. Runs fine. About 1 year old.


If the unit is not pulling water into the bucket its probably not that humid in that area anymore. If it aint broke dont fix it.

It goes on and off intermitently. It seems to be the switch where the colector tank slides in


If the water collection bucket is not installed properly, the vibration of the unit during operation, will cause the bucket to lose contact with the safety trigger switch and the unit shuts OFF. Remove the bucket and look up into the cavity to see the switch. This will give you and indication of how the bucket must make contact with the switch. When you reinstall the bucket, be sure that it is squarely in the opening (top to bottom) and the bucket's bottom is not tilted down. However, when this occurs the Bucket Full light usually turns ON. If you're not getting that, it's not a problem with the safety trigger switch.

So, the other thing to check is the water extraction level, you have the unit set on. It may very well be set to high. Lower it to 32 - 25 %. The ON/OF scenario can be caused by an improper humidity extraction level setting.

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

My Danby dehumidifier leaks out of the bottom. Water not draining into the tank but around the tank therefore out of the bottom between the tank and the dehumidier itself


The drain tube or hole that drains into the bucket is probably clogged.

Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look in the cavity where the bucket was removed for a drain tube or drain hole. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) , that's appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Carefully feed the ZIP Tie into the hole or tube and thread it as far as you can. At some point the drain will curve, but you have to carefully get past this point. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. Once you have it half way out, be prepared for water to follow. This method should solve the problem.

Check the filter and make sure that the water level is correct. If all is correct then replace the water level sensor

Bucket full light will not go off and unit will not operate (there is no water in the bucket).


The bucket full light is controlled by a manual 'float' switch in the bucket itself
-when the water level rises...it lifts the float ...turns on the light and does not allow the unit to operate because it believes it is full.

It is very common for the 'float' to gets misaligned, hung-up, etc. when you remove and re-insert the bucket. Sometimes the 'chain' gets twisted, turned...which does not allow the float to ...float...rather it is 'hung-up' which indicates it is 'full'...when in fact it is clearly not.

To check this:
  • remove bucket from unit
  • look into the top of the bucket opening to locate the 'float'...generally 2" round plastic ball on a shaft, (or chain)
  • softly cup the float in order to lift this up...with the unit stilll plugged in...to see if the light goes off...this is very likely
  • then be sure that the float mechanism is able to freely 'float' in the space....i.e. you are trying to simulate the impact of rising water levels in the bucket
  • as it rises (in your hand the machine will turn off/light on...as it drops....the light shuts off, allowing the machine to run (when humidity levels demand it)
  • then re-install the bucket....being very careful to lift the float, while you insert it...there is generally a little nack to it...but you quickly learn how to do it easily (I just reach into the space...cup the float...put the bucket on an angle...slide it in....release the float into the bucket...(remove hand)...then finish pushing the bucket into place
-hope this helps
