I'm assuming the that you determined the unit is getting power, because the lights on the dehumidifier light up, when you turn Master ON/OFF Switch ON.

If that's the case, it may simply be that the humidity level you have it set for is equal to or higher than the humidity level in the house. In which case, lower the humidity level to it's lowest setting to see if the unit turns on then. Also, check the water collection bucket, making sure it's installed properly and is making good contact with the safety trigger.

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

The BHD-501-D dehumidifier developed a dripping sound of water. Does it have a filter we need to change or some other issue. This dehumidifier has been in use Sept-Oct 2009, July-Oct 2010 and...


The dripping sound, if it's water dripping into the water collection bucket is normal. The filter is behind the louvers on the front. It can be accessed(depending on the model) by turning the unit OFF, unplugging it and removing the water bucket. Inside the water bucket holder at the top of it's opening, just behind the louvers, you will see a plastic tab(s) pull handle. If the filter has never been removed to be cleaned (shame on you), there may be a piece of plastic tape holding it in place. This was for shipping purposes. Remove it and discard it. Pull the tab handle(s) straight down and the filter and frame should come out. It may be snug, since you have never removed it, so be gently persistent . Since it has never been cleaned in 2 years, vacuuming it will not work. Wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid, rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place. As it cause damage to the unit.

If the filter was not where I said to first look. There may be a flip open type rectangular door on the right side of the unit, just behind the front louvers. Ope that door and you will see the plastic filter frame. Pull that straight out and follow the instructions above to clean it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where is air intake filter? unit is icing up Thanks so much


The air intake filter is one of 2 places. In either case, it's behind the front louvers

1. Remove the water collection bucket from it's holder. Look up into the bucket holder, just behind
the front louvers. You should see what looks like a plastic frame. It may have a pull tab handle. In
any event, the is the filter frame. Pull it straight down and out. It can be cleaned with a vacuum or
if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid, rinse and allow to completely dry
before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so, could damage
the unit.

2, Look on the right hand side of the unit's cabinet, just behind the louvers. If you see what appears
to be a op open door, the filter is behind that door. Follow the above directions for cleaning the
filter.

I hope this helps you. Please let be know.

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.

Only 3 years old. Fan runs does not collect ANY water. #1 We have it set at Maximum #2 How exactly do we take it apart to clean filter? #3 Clearance space is ok #4 Temperature in basement ok please...


First turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit.

Depending on the model, (in both cases, the filter is behind the louvers on the front) by removing the water collection bucket and looking up into the water bucket cavity, just behind the louvers, for what will look like a plastic pull tab handle. If you see this, pull it straight down an out.
If the filter is not there, look on the right hand side of the unit, just behind the louvers. There will be a trap door that will flip open, There you will see the plastic frame of the filter. Pull it straight out to remove it.

The filter can be vacuumed or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid, rinse thoroughly and allow it to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit with out the filter installed.

Hope this helped you.

Need to clean filter


Hazel, I assume you want to know how to find and remove the filter for cleaning.

The filter is located behind the front air intake louvers and depending on which model you have, the filter can be accessed one of two ways. Before you attempt to remove the filter turn the unit OFF and unplug it.

1. Remove the bucket from it's holder. Look up inside the bucket cavity, just inside the unit behind the louvers and you will see a tab type pull handle. This is the handle to the frame of the filter. Pull it down and out.

2. As you're facing the unit on the fight side just behind the louvers, there will appear to be a trap type door. Open this door and you will have access to pull the filter out.

You can clean the filter in one of two ways: Vacuum it or it it's really dirty, wash it in warm soapy (dish washing liquid), rinse and dry thoroughly. NEVER operate the dehumidifier without the filter in place. Doing so, can cause damage to the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Is there a filter in the 65 pint dehumitifier and if so how do i clean it!!!


Yes, there is a filter in it or it should be. Since you didn't say which model you have, it is in one of two places. Before attempting the filter removal turn the unit OFF and unplug it.

1. It can be accessed by removing the bucket and just inside the bucket holder at the top, behind the louvers on the front, you will see a tab type handle. This is the frame for the filter. Pull it down to remove the filter.

2. There will be what looks like a pull door on the right hand side of the unit, behind the louvers. Pulling straight out on that will remove the filter.

The filter can either be vacuumed to clean it or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water & dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter installed, as it could cause damage to the unit.

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

Can't get the air filter out. Seems to be stuck.


As you already know, the air intake filter is behind the water collection bucket. Once you have removed the bucket, grasp the filter frame at the bottom, pull down and out. The filter frame is made to fit snugly, so pull it out gingerly.

Hope this helped you get the filter removed. Please let me know. Thanks.

Makes a loud beep every minute or so. Doesn't seem like basket is filling with water either.


Turn the Master ON/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the air intake filter and clean it. Allow it to thoroughly dry, before reinstalling it. Once the filter is thoroughly dry, reinstall it, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity level at 35% and allow the unit to run as you normally would. The beating should have stopped, since you cleaned the filter. Be sure to maintain at least 2 feet of clear air space around the dehumidifier.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Help for old kenmore dehumidifier


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.

Kenmore dehumidifier runs but won't collect water


Hi,
If you haven't done so already, try removing and cleaning the inlet filter screen which is almost certainly just behing the inlet grille. It may slide upwards out of the casing or downwards unto the bucket area. If this is blocked with fluff then no moist air will get to the cold pipes, so little or no water will be extracted. There's also a chance that the humidity sensor is clogged with fluff, so fooling the system into thinking the room is pretty dry, in which case the compressor will probably not run.
A running compressor can usually be detected as a deep throbbing from the machine. If it is running, but not cooling the pipes behind the intake grille, then you may have lost the refrigerant from the system via a leak. If the air coming out of the machine is warm (caused by the compressor running) but there is no water produced this may be the cause.

Explore along these lines and let me know what you find.
Cheers, D
