The unit may need to be reset. To do this turn OFF the Master ON/OFF Switch. Unplug the unit from the outlet and wait 12 - 15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set your controls as you normally do and if the unit did reset itself, it should work properly. One other thing to take note off, ... Does the unit feel or appear to be overheating? If so, it may need a recharge of refrigerant gas.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

My Maytag Model number M7DH65B2A is not collecting water


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 you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

Dehumidifier does not collect water.


If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Normal 0 When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?
