Question about Heating & Cooling

Re:Whirlpool Dehumidifier Model# AD40DSL5 This product still runs fine but it does not remove moisture from the basement, The water bucket is empty and dry. I removed the outer-casing and cleaned the inside comletely. There is no filter on this unit. Being that it was "caked" with heavy, moist dust-I'm wondering if some easily replaceable part has "blown". I believe this unit was around $180. Can it be fixed?

    I have the same issue - the unit will operate and will turn off when adjusted below the sensitivity threshold ... I've had this unit running steady for a few years with the bin draining into my sump pump in the basement. Just this past week I noticed the basement abnormally damp, and the unit was running but the resevoir was bone dry.

This generation of Whirlpool dehumidifiers and the one that came after it just don't run forever like they used to. If you hear the compressor start to cycle when it is first turned on and you verify that it's fan is circulating air, it should be removing water. If it's not, a service tech would probably charge you $30+ to tell you that the compressor is not producing sufficient pressure. Time to buy another one.

The unit turns on and sounds like it is running,


Your coil temperature has to be below the dewpoint of the air in the basement to remove the moisture. If you can set the temperature lower or the fan speed lower it will help.
