What is wrong with a Westpointe dehumidifier when it stops removing water and displays P1? It will run this way for hours and kick in and work briefly once in a while on continuous.


Usually the P1 error indicates that dehumidifier needs to be defrosted. The unit has detected ice build-up on the condenser coils.

Unplug the dehumidifier for several hours. Then plug it back in. If the problem recurs, check that the fan that blows air across the coils is working properly. Make sure that the room is not colder than the operating range of the dehumidifier. If the problems continues to occur, you may have a refrigerant leak in the system. That will require a service call to repair the dehumidifier.

If the unit is under warranty, contact Westpointe. The manual I have for a Westpointe 65 PT dehumidifier, https://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/136333-1.pdf, indicates the unit is covered through year 5 after purchase for a refrigerant system. For Warranty service, the contact point is Midea Consumer Service at 1-866-646-4332. If the unit is not under warranty, consider whether to replace the dehumidifier.

I hope this helps.

Whar does the E1 code suggest I do?


E1 indicates that the filter needs to be removed and cleaned. Be sure to turn the unit OFF and plug it, before removing the filter. You can either vacuum the filter or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid, rinse and thoroughly dry it, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the dehumidifier without the filter installed. Doing so could cause damage to the unit.

Got a second-hand Dayton dehumidifier 5BB55 - does it need a filter?


All dehumidifiers need and have a filter, usually already installed in them. Yours may be located behind the front louvers of the unit. Remove the bucket and look just inside the bucket holder at the top, below the louvers. You should see a tab type handle. Pull that down and out. If it's dirty it can be vacuumed or if it's really dirty, wash it with warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filer in place. Doing so, can cause damage to the unit.

If you don't have one contact Grainger Industrial Supply 1-800-323-0620. As Dayton is a house brand of Grainger. You may want to see if an Owner's Manual is still available for your model. It will be invaluable to you in the future.

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

My Dayton Dehumidifier drains out the hole designed for a hose connection. How do I get it to drain into the container in the unit?


If you want to use the bucket to collect the water cover the hole in the back where the hose to dispense water outside would normally go. You need a rubber cover that will fit tightly, it should have come with the unit.

The fall may have knocked out some wiring -- open the unit (remove back panel, then remove front by taking out screws inside) and see if any of the cables to the front panel or control board came out.
