Help for old kenmore dehumidifier

Hi, I have a kenmore dehumidifier that's 50 pints/24 hrs., that isn't collecting anything, but sounds like it runs fine. It's old. Model # 106.953501. Serial is QC2626992. I cleaned the coils in back, but can't find a filter to clean. I removed the pan, no filter! Unless I need to remove nuts and bolts to find it, I don't think there is one. Any advice? Thanks!
Sandy

Hello Sandy,
On mine, the filter is in the front. Behind the grill. To remove it, you have to remove the bucket first. Then you can see two tabs sticking down that say "Filter Front". You can reach your fingers up & behind it, grab the lip, and pull straight down. For me it requires more force than expected. With the filter out, put the bucket back in and turn it on. Make sure that there is air blowing out the back to verify that the fan still works. I hope this helps.

    A photo of your unit would help. I don't think that it is of the same design as my own dehumidifier. It appears that yours was made by Whirlpool, according to this site:
    http://www.home-appliance-kitchen-aids.c...
    Kenmore's website directs you to this site for a manual:
    http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/
    Which is unable to find a manual for your model #. You may have to call Sears and order a new manual for the unit.

I have 2 kenmore 70 pint dehumidifiers. Neither one is collecting water in the pan when running (therefore neither is running). Is there a reset button?

I have a Kenmore 50 pint dehumidifier Model 580.54501400


It looks like it is simple to get the filter out but we are finding it to be imposible. How can we take it out. It doesn't just pull down.

Dehumidifier won't shut off


Well your dehumidifer runs constantly. My guess seeing how you bought a 30 pint per 24 hrs. Your house better be 400sqft. It is under sized and humidity need to be 30/50 percent to stop mold growth. It cant keep up its two small 50 pint are for 1000sqft 65 pint is 1300sqft. Upgrade now!!!!!
