    I have had the Whirlpool AD75USTO since MAr 07 (Lowes)
    It ran fine for a year and a half and all f the sudden it started to trip the ciruit breakers. Doesn't matter which circuit I put it on?

    Any ideas?

SOURCE: Dehumidifier AD75USTO Whirlpool. Taking in

Sorry, but your Model # doesn't match any Whirlpool Appliance in my data base. However, another company may have bought the rights to use the Whirlpool name on house brand that they sell. But, lets get to a solution to your immediate problem.

First turn OFF the MASTER ON/OFF Switch and unplug the unit from the wall outlet and allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing and cleaning the air filter. As, I suspect, the filter is dirty and may be clogged. Historically, this is one of the things that can cause a dehumidifier to struggle and not be able to keep up.

After you remove and clean the filter, remove the water collection bucket and look for the drain tube or hole that drains the water into the collection bucket. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie, that will fit into the drain hole or tube. Carefully insert the tube into the drain hole. Continue to push it in and you'll reach a bend in the tubing. Carefully push it past this bend, as far as you can. Then, while rotating the Zip Tie, pull it back out slowly. Be prepared for some water to follow. One word of caution - DO NOT use a wire coat hanger to clear the drain tube.

Reassemble everything and you should be good to go. If however, the unit freezes up again, the compressor may be low of refrigerant gas and it will need to be recharged.

Hope this helps you continue to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Pops electric panal breaker


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

A dehumidifier is similar to having another refrigerator plugged in. It is recommended that it be plugged into a circuit of its own. If you are talking about the house fuse or circuit breaker it could be the circuit has to many products plug into the that house circuit. I would suggest moving it to another area of the house to see if it also blows that fuse. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Bought the Frigidaire 6000 BTU Window Room Air Conditioner LRA067AT7 6 months ago and it worked fine until last week, It will not turn on although plugged in and the wall outlet is good. Is there an auto...


Good Morning Luca,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA067AT7, will not turn on. I also see that the wall outlet is good, so you are wondering if there is an automatic shut off if the filter has not been cleaned. Your air conditioner does not have an automatic shut off, if the filter has not been cleaned. Please start by cleaning the filter. You can do this easily with the following instructions:
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

    1)Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
    2)Open the front panel.
    3)Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
    4)Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing
    5)Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.


    Also, be sure your air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. Your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle. Do not run your air conditioner without outside protective cover in place. This could result in mechanical damage within your air conditioner. Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.

    The power supply cord contains a current device that senses damage to the power cord. To test
    your power supply cord do the following:

      1)Plug in your Air Conditioner.
      2)The power supply cord will have TWO buttons on the plug head. Press the TEST button. You will notice a click as the RESET button pops out.
      3)Press the RESET button. Again you will notice a click as the button engages.
      4)The power supply cord is now supplying electricity to the unit. 4)


      I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

My dehumidifier is showing an E2 code on it. It is a brand new haier, can you help me out with this problem?


E2 Code indicates a Sensor Error automatic shutdown. To find out which sensor it is you will have to call Haier Customer Support 1-877-337-363.

In the meantime, turn the unit OFF & unplug it for 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn ON. ON. Hopefully the unit reset itself and reverted back to the original factory settings. And you can set te humidity extraction level where you desire. If the error code reappears, definitely contact Haier, as youtr unit is still under warranty.

What does e1 mean


For many window air conditioners this code is simply a reminder to clean the air filter. After like 750 hours of run time this code pops up and you have to clean the filter and then reset the unit before it will work again. To reset the code you need to simply unplug the unit and then plug it back in again.

Hope this helps; good luck.

I have a new DE45EK unit that has an error code E2. I powered it down for one hour and the code does not clear. First what is this code as it isn't listed in the guide that came with the product. ...


After turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit for the wall outlet and wait 12 -15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in to the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. That 12 - 15 minute timeout, should have allowed the unit to reset it self and clear that unknown code.

Since you are not having success using Haier's Customer Support Number, here's their email address
productinfo@haieramerica.com <productinfo@haieramerica.com>

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

Dehumidifer will not turn on. An E2 code comes up on the panel. Has been working fine for 4 day.


Since it has been working well for 4 days, it may be a case that the unit needs to reset itself. To accomplish this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, that timeout allowed the unit to reset itself. Also, check to make sure that the water collection bucket is installed properly and is making good contact with the safety switch.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Unit will start and run for 5 seconds, then will blow a circut breaker on 20A. circut. This is a model AD75USTO Serial # QU2660438 AKA Whirlpool gold energy star


Hopefully, it's not a problem inside the unit that's causing the circuit breaker to trip. Is there another electrical appliance plugged into the same outlet or on that circuit that is ON and draws 15 amps of power? If so, that's the problem. If that's not the case, turn the circuit breaker OFF and remove the outlet cover, so you can inspect the receptacle and it's wiring. A loose wiring connection or a broken or cracked receptacle could be the issue. If you don't find any damage reassemble the outlet and turn the circuit breaker back ON. Instead of plugging in the dehumidifier, plug in a lamp or something similar and turn it ON. Leave it on for more than 5 minutes to see if the circuit breaker trips again. If it does, you'll know the problem is either with the outlet receptacle or the circuit breaker. If doesn't, plug in the dehumidifier (Make sure the Master ON/OFF Switch on the unit is in the OFF position, before plugging it in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is in the dehumidifier. You will need to call Whirlpool Customer Care, as it's an internal electrical issue.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%201188927.pdf

I hope what information I have provided to you, will help you trouble shoot and solve the problem.

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&#39;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&#39;m using the wrong terminology? I&#39;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&#39;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!
