I second this advice!
The Continuous Run mode is really for severe humidity conditions and does not work well in moderate humidity.

There is some service that you can do ... Clean the filter and the cooling coils, regularly. Check the humidity level that you have the unit set on. It may be set to low and there's just not that much humidity in the air at this time, for it to collect. From what you said, it sounds like you may have it set on continuous cycle which could account for the lack of a lot of water in the bucket. In continuous run, the fan stays ON all the time. It's supposed to do that, so that the air is constantly moving and the sensor only turns the compressor ON, if it senses a humidity level 5% higher than what you have it set for. Try running the unit on a 1 or 2 hour cycle (if your model will do that) rather than continuous cycle.

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

My Montgomery Wards big floor type demumidifier


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.

Fan runs, no water collected


It appears that these units have a history of defectiveness. I bought one in late 2010 and it pooped early 2012. If the model is still made, buy a new one, return the defective one in the new unit's packing materials for a refund. Or keep the second (new) unit as a back-up, because the new (first) one may just fail again a short while later.

Whirlpool Dehumidifier (AD75UST) blows water out upper right vent? Whirlpool Dehumidifier (AD75UST) is blowing water out of the upper right vent. Details: *Approx. 5 years old *It continues to collect water and work "normally" except for the water blowing out of the vent. I have attempted to collect water using the bucket but it continues to blow water out of the upper vent. I have also attempted to drain water through the hose attachment but, again, it continues to blow water out of the upper vent. *It is on a level surface *I have cleaned the filter in front to no avail. *The unit is run in 600 sq ft basement about 6 months out of the year on a continuous basis for the following reasons: The home is located in an area that was once a swamp. Therefore, it gets quite wet in the spring/summer. The basement/foundation is about 100 years old and has issues with seepage and water often pools in various areas when there is consistent and/or heavy rain. *I also checked the troubleshooting section of the manual but it didn't mention an issue of this type. *I have searched the web in hopes of finding a solution but have been unable to find anyone else with this problem (perhaps I'm using the wrong terminology? I'm only guessing the part that is blowing water is called a vent). *The warranty on the interior/sealed system is due to expire next month (end of April 2012). I'd like to narrow down the problem before that if it happens to be an issue that Whirlpool with pay to repair. Any ideas on how to correct the problem? Thank you in advance!
